Mother Cow

I have been wondering for a while now why ISKCON, and New Vrindaban more specifically, hasn't teamed up with animal rights and land conservation groups. It seems to me that groups like PETA share much in common with the Hare Krishna beliefs, at least as far as vegetarianism and animal protection goes. I think working with them would give greater legitimacy to the hard work and dedication that you and others have given to the cows over the years.

Below is a link to PETA's info on cow farming:

Below is a link to an Animal Sanctuary where rescued animals live (that is listed on the PETA website):

What is your take on why ISKCON/NV has not taken the connected with other organizations over the years?

I am not getting sucked into that one on my blog:-) Many reasons that are obvious to some and to those to whom it isn't obvious, no point in disturbing their minds.

I would prefer to think how could we connect with other organizations in the future.

Ok, fair enough. The past is the past after all. What can be done by people who are advocates of cow and environmental protection to connect and engage with organizations in more "mainstream" society?

Last comment on this thread: I know you've put a lot of time and energy into Cow and Environmental Protection over the years. These are issues very near and dear to you. At different times I've heard bits and pieces of the practical suggestions you've come up with. I'd like to see these ideas put in one place where others can access your experiences (dare I say "wisdom?" :) and use them to avoid repeating the same mistakes in the future. Any chance your blog is somewhere you'll start compiling this info?

Well, I wouldn't wste a lot of time discussing it in the comment portion of a week old post on an obscure blog.

The reasoning and methodology has been reinterated so many times over the years. It falls on deaf ears. So here I am trying to show that cows have personality and individual uniqueness and maybe someone will wake up to that.

The headon approach has failed.
