Cosmic Mother – Devi Kamadhenu Ambika
Celestial Sacred Cow – Surabhi – “The Divine Cow of wishes or desires”
Kalpa Vriksham – Divine wish full filling tree.
In Hindu mythology, Kamadhenu Ambika is a divine cow who had believed to be the mother of all cows. Like her daughter Nandini, she could grant any wish for the true seeker. Kamadhenu provided Vashistha with his needs for the sacrifices. Kamadhenu ( Kama-dhenu, ‘wish-cow’ ), was a miraculous cow of plenty who could give her owner whatever he desired. She stands for prosperity – as does Goddess Maha Lakshmi and is especially associated with “wealth”, because she is the producer of the milk and the calrified butter of symbolic nature, the offerings traditionally placed on the sacrificial fire. Kamadhenu Ambhika, the cosmic energy symbolized as the sacred cow which grants all wishes and desires, is an integral part of Hindu mythology. This divine Cow, which lives in swargalok (heaven), emerged from the ocean of milk (ksheerasagar) at the time of samudramanthan the great churning of the ocean by the gods (suras) and demons (asuras) along with Kalpa Vriksham, which is said to be a tree of gold and precious stones.
Kamadhenu Puja and Benefits
Kamadhenu’ is an all wish satisfying cow of Heaven. Worshipping Her along with Her Calf named ‘Nandhini’ is very auspicious. One who adores and does puja is granted all the desires and has the blessings of the three main Goddesses Lakshmi, Durga and Saraswathy. Kamadhenu is an all wish satisfying cow of heavens. This prayer is addressed by Indra to Kamadhenu. It has been adapted as T prayer to the cow by all Hindus.
“SARVE DEVAAH STHITA DEHE SARVA DEVAMMAYEEHI GAOU” The above shloka means that all the deities dwell in the body of Kamadhenu. Therefore the Kamadhenu itself is holier than all the Deities. The Divine cow symbolizes the dharma itself. Lord Krishna states in Srimad Bhagavad-Gita: chapter 10, verse 28”dhenunam asmi kamadhuk dhenunam” “Among cows I am the wish fulfilling Cow”.

Mantras have been given by the Divine Mother for us to be able to “Give Life”, energize and vitalize all Vigrahas, through powerful Yagnas. The Energized Yantra, which is a geometric representation of the power of the deity, given by a Siddha is installed in the place where the deity is installed subsequently. Mantra is the “Soul” of the Yantra with the Yantra being energized by the Mantra. Along with the Yantra, precious metals, precious Navarathnas, etc. are also placed. This is followed by elaborate abhishekams with the sanctified waters along with the recitation of appropriate mantras. This will be a very unique installation as four very powerful and energized Yantras will be placed during consecration.
