NANDINI
Also known as NANDHINI

The Sacred Cow of Joy

Holy cow! She is the delightfully good-natured daughter of KAMADHENU, the supreme Cow Goddess. And she has certainly inherited her mother's bountiful nature. Make a wish and she will provide anything you ask, with a happy smile and a merry moo.

A wish-granting magic happy cow sounds like something from a fairy tale, but so far we have not received any reports of her climbing beanstalks or associating with big bad wolves.

However, her magic qualities are highly prized by her owner, VASHISHTHA the sage. Of course, when you own a magic cow there's always some jealous deity or acquisitive king sniffing around. Luckily NANDINI is more than capable of taking care of herself, thanks to the protection of her proud mom KAMADHENU. Do not mess with the moo-cow.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Nandini graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Nandini movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Nandini statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Nandini. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
