Today is GopAshTami

Hare KRshNa

Today is GopAshTami, the ashTami (8th day of the Lunar fortnight) when Shri KRshNa officially entered from kaumArya stage (upto 5 yrs) to 'pauganda' (6 to 10 years) and was allowed to herd the cows, take them to the pastures.

A bit too 'young' , but who can stop the eternal Supreme Person - Govinda GopAl from uniting with His cows a.k.a. Go-dhan ?
