    On several occasions we beat a cow knowingly or unknowingly or just beat them with a stick to chase away from our field which may have an iron nib that causes injury or bleeding injury that creates lots of pain in the cow.

    This Earth belongs to Animals and Plants and we are aliens in the earth and encroaching the earth that actually belongs to them. The cow at times never curses but silently weeps. This cry affects our vibration and we never understands that and thinks some unwanted creation is affecting our steps on improvements and blocks the way of success.

    Yes, we made the mistake of beating a cow which affected them badly. Now we take a vow not to do it again but what is the prayachchith for the mistake we committed already?

    The Cow and bull are said to be bearers of the light of all planet in to earth. This already mentioned in Vedas as the bearer of light of the Sun to the Earth through Seven Horses and this Nandhi sitting before the Garbhagraha of the Siva Temple collects the Rays from Sivalinga and again sending them to Flag Post which goes to the North Pole and to the Universe.

    Based on this theory I arrived at a solution.

    To satisfy Soorya Dev, you could offer--coarse cloth to the underprivileged on a Sunday, or --feed wheat to deer on several Sundays
    This sort of approach can be followed for any Planet and can be extended to the practice of immersing the metals sacred to the Planets in a flowing water, or burying them in the earth on the Planet's weekday. This type of donation gives back to nature that it gave us and is useful as an act of non-attachment - particularly when you think of dropping real gold into a river to propitiate Brihaspati. One remedy for Soorya could thus be to offer copper either to a powerful person or into flowing water on a Sunday.(Or if you are rich enough sponsor a Gopura Kalasa for a Temple.)

    There are some variants occur in the creatures or offerings listed in the For example, "cow" is listed under Shukra (Venus), but is often used for Soorya Dev (Sun) as well. The Lal Kitab advises one to offer wheat or jaggery to a cow on Sundays to remedy afflictions of the Sun.

    Shradha for Cows and Bulls is called Vrushotsarga - Where one Bull and a Cow will be worshiped and they will be let out freely. One Homa will be performed. This is for moksha and Forefathers. For which you have to seek the direction of a Purohit.

    The Fees will be -around Rs 8,000 for cow and cost of performing homa will be Rs 10,000, apart from this you are to sponsor for Anna Dhana.

    This is done at only one place called Gokarna.

    To me the sun is just a star and planets are globes in orbit around it. Rahu and Ketu are imaginary. For the life of me I do not see how they can affect us.

    Regarding the cow or any other animal for that matter stopping the beating is all that is required. Instead of some religious activity it probably makes more sense to feed the animal.

    However, this is not to decry anyone's belief or religious sentiments. One should do whatever gives one a sense of comfort.

    I completed my trip to Gokarna. I booked the ticket through Redbus in Bangalore. But the journey was terrible. The redbus.co.in promises safe journey and drop. But in reality, it stopped 15 Kms away from temple. Even though the ticket was booked 20 days in advance, they care less but prefer to load parcels. You can say it is a Parcel service rather than Passenger service. It starts from Bangalore at 18.30., but with in Bangalore stopped for an hour for loading parcels. On the way it stopped in a third grade hotel at 22 Hrs., which was having N.V. and tea and coffee are more costly here. In the bus, it is sleeper but when you lie down, the bowels (Kudal) comes to your mouth resulting in vomiting sensation. So for elders it is not advisable to take a sleeper bus. Next day, we were forced by the Seabird Bus to get down at bypass road, which is 15 kms away from Gokarna Village! It was drizzling and we hired an auto to reach the lodge. We paid Rs150/=(That too a local man helped)

    After reaching the lodge, we had our bath etc., and went to Temple. There we met the Manager, who sent us to the Prohit to speak on the rituals to be performed. Here we must bargain so that it suits your purse.

    In the after noon we had our lunch at temple. The meals is served in steel plates! You can find no achchara here!!

    Next day we performed the Vrushotsarga, which lasted for 3 hrs. and had our lunch at the prohit's house.

    In the evening we went to local places like Om beach and other beaches.

    Next day we went to Gangamma river and Om beach which cost us Rs350.

    In the after noon we had lunch out side. The side dishes here has lots of Soombhu.

    The temple they chant Rudram all through the day. Here any one can touch the Moolavar Saligram.

    The temple gopuram is made with copper but that of a design that will be actually under/ base of the flag post.and with Moghul style.

    The Flag post is made with a single stone on top there is a Nandhi in sitting pose.

    There is Parvathi sannathi., dathathreya and Chandikeswarar. But Chandikeswarar is a linga.

    At 8.00 PM daily, there is a pooja called SALAM pooja in honour of Tippu sultan, who donated lands to the temple.

    My suggestion to any one visiting this village, avoid taking food in the temple. Try to move fast from the village as you could. It is best two days are enough that too if you have a Prayachchiththaa to do.
