Gautran daan means service for feeding cows for several days. The food comprises of green grass, water and mixture of several grains called as Banta (wet mixture of Wheat, Sorghum, cluster beans, barley, corn, Staff tree, salt and jaggery). You have the option to feed cows for 11 days, 21 days, 31 days, 51 days, 101 days.
In the 11th (11.11.43) Canto of Shrimat Bhagwatam Krishna told his beloved cousin Udhava that he can be worshiped by offering cow grass and other suitable grains. Worshiping cow is equal to worshiping Krishna.
Bhagwat Geeta tells us about the importance of being in "Satva gunaa, Satva guna brings us peace and happiness and worshiping cow increases our satva guna. Drinking cow milk blesses us with Divine consciousness and Divine energy and fills our body with transcendental qualities (sattvikta).
The product manufactured from cow milk helps us purify our body and purify our thoughts which in-turn helps us to perform right actions. By feeding grains and by offering puja to the cows, one can receive extraordinary spiritual benefits. Serving and protecting cow pleases God and Demi-gods present in the cow and it takes us closer to the Supreme personality of God.
According to Skanda Purana, One can demolish all his sinful acts by simply offering respect to the cow's. If we maintain and serve a cow in a nice manner then we can not only catch Krishna's attention and but we can please Krishna as well. Krishna is kind with those who save cows and protect them. He is delighted by any effort done to serve a cow and he never even forgets us if we benefit cow.
As an animal cow is very lovable, simple and gentle, what we can do to serve her is we can buy grain for her, feed her every time we get an opportunity and we can donate the cow to an institution where they are treated with utmost care.
From time immemorial, in India, the Vedic tradition has encouraged an Agrarian based civilization. Cows have always played a pivotal role in the Vedic Agrarian society. The Cow is revered as the most sacred animal to Hindus, a fact that is evidenced by the dedication of several hymns and rituals, reverentially addressing it as GOMATHA (divine mother cow) in all the sacred scriptures including Vedas and Puranas. Gomathaa is a symbolic representation of 33 crore Gods who are said to hold positions in various parts of a cow's body. As a representation of the divine, all auspicious ceremonies and rituals involve the Cow and its produce. Everything from, milk, butter, ghee, curd, cheese, even the cow's dung and urine are considered very sacred in Hindu Vedic tradition.
