That the cow is holy in Hinduism is a trite truism, but how did she attain that position, and what does holding her sacred mean in terms of animal ethics? What happens when we consider bovines as subjects in their own right? These are some of the questions that Krishna Kshetra Swami explores in Cow Care in Hindu Animal Ethics (Palgrave McMillan 2020).

If anyone is sanctioned to associate with Krishna, it is Radha, for she is the divine heroine of a divine drama, the ultimate model of devotion to God, and hence the embodiment of perfect chastity. That Radha and Krishna’s relationship appears to be illicit simply heightens the romantic element of the drama, inviting the worshiper to abandon the distractions of this world to enter into the transcendent realm of rich and exciting transcendent rasa.

Si hay alguien que está autorizado a asociarse con Krishna, es Radha, porque ella es la heroína divina de un drama divino, el modelo supremo de devoción a Dios y, por lo tanto, la encarnación de la castidad perfecta. El hecho de que la relación de Radha y Krishna parezca ilícita simplemente aumenta el elemento romántico del drama, invitando al adorador a abandonar las distracciones de este mundo para entrar en el reino trascendente del rasa trascendente rico y emocionante.

Jeśli ktoś jest upoważniony do obcowania z Kṛṣṇą, to jest to Rādhā, ponieważ jest ona boską bohaterką boskiego dramatu, ostatecznym wzorem oddania dla Boga, a zatem ucieleśnieniem doskonałej czystości. To, że związek Rādhy i Kṛṣṇy wydaje się być nielegalny, po prostu potęguje romantyczny element dramatu, zapraszając wielbiciela do porzucenia tego świata materialnego i wkroczenia do transcendentnej sfery bogatych i ekscytujących transcendentnych ras.

Pojawienie się Pana… To jest coś więcej niż pomyślny dzień. Słowo „pojawienie się”, przynajmniej w języku angielskim, może czasami oznaczać coś mniej rzeczywistego. Pojawienie się Kryszny jest jednak bardziej realne niż cokolwiek innego.

The appearance of the Lord… This day is more than auspicious. The word ‘appearance’, at least in English, can sometimes mean something that is less real. Krishna’s appearance is however more real than anything. Let’s start with Krishna’s disappearance. In the Srimad-Bhagavatam, First Canto, we meet Krishna, but as He is just preparing to leave the world. Then we hear about devotees lamenting about it. After that another eight cantoes come, preparing for Krishna’s appearance. These eight cantoes narrate about the appearances of many avataras of the Lord.
