NANDINI

Indian Cow Goddess

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.
