STORY OF LAKSHMI AND KAMADHENU (Story of why people touch cow's back and do namaskaram)


Kamadhenu was born, while doing Samdura Manthana (churning of milk ocean)...Kamadhenu is said to be Cow of Plenty, who grants all wishes and prayers of devottess.. Kamadhenu cow is so divine, that all the gods are believed to reside in the body of Kamadhenu


All gods gets places in her body, like her four legs are the scriptural Veda,  her horns are the triune gods Brahma(tip), Vishnu (middle) and Shiva (base); her eyes are the sun and moon gods, her shoulders the fire-god Agni and the wind-god Vayu and her legs the Himalayas...


Lakshmi, Vishnu's consort doesnt find a place.. And she seeks a place in Kamadhenu's body... Kamadhenu denies, saying Lakshmi is fickle minded and she doesnt stay in one place... Lakshmi request's saying... "No i will  stay  permanently in you, please give me a place".  Then kamadhenu says only place left out is my rear side (prishta baagam)...Lakshmi Happily accepts and then on, she resides in the place permanently..


Most of you would have observed, people touch back of cow, and do namaskaram as Lakshmi resides there.. Also a cow is brought into house on housewarming days as Entire Hindu gods reside inside it, and brining in a cow, is as good as bringing in all Gods to home.....
