She is often referred to as Surabhi, a heavenly bovine goddess who appears in Vedic texts. She frequently serves as both a magical "cow of abundance" who gives her owner anything he asks for, as well as the mother of the eleven Rudras. Her imagery is that of a white, pristine cow who is the abode of numerous deities. Hinduism venerates all cows as the earthly manifestation of the Kamadhenu. As a result, Kamadhenu is not worshiped separately from other goddesses, nor are temples constructed in her honor; rather, she is honored by the respect for cows that is shared by all observant Indians. Indian culture revolves around the sacred cow known as Kamadhenu, which satisfies all desires and aspirations. This heavenly cow came into existence during the furious churning of the ocean by the gods and demons. It was delivered by the gods to the seven sages, and Sage Vasishta eventually came into possession of it.
According to the Anushasana Parva, Kamadhenu was the child of Daksha, the deity who created the entire universe. This claims that once Prajapati Daksha drank the Amrita, which emanated from the Samudra Manthan, Surabhi was created from his belch. Surabhi ended up giving birth to a handful of golden cows termed as Kapila cows. These cows were respected as the world's mothers though too. Some say that Lord Brahma drank an excessive amount of Amrita and spat up some of it.
Lord Kamadhenu’s blessings
Kamadhenu, the "cow of aspirations" has a female head, a cow-like body, brightly coloured tropical wings, and a peacock's tail. Her milk is flowing over a Shiva linga when the yoni channels it into a sacrifice for the gods in the holy fire. A different common offering, ghee, is added to the fire by a number of brahmins in the background. The use of milk, butter, and ghee throughout Vedic ritual rites makes the spiritual significance of the cow abundantly clear. From above, encircled by waves of light, Shiva and Parvati observe while making signs of blessing, security, and assurance.
Numerous gurus and their families obtained milk and other dairy products from Kamadhenu. She, therefore, is considered the one who furnishes Brahmins with nutritious food to nourish them. When cruel monarchs aimed to take her away from her owner, the wise Vasishtha, Kamadhenu stood up for him. She acquired the power to summon thousands of troops to annihilate any armies that attempted to attack the ashram (hermitage). She consequently became a representation of Brahmins' protection.
