The bringing of cow into a newly built house is also known as “Govardhana pooja for the word “Go’ means cows, and “vardhana’ means nourishment. According to the Hindu mythology the cow represents Lord Shiva and its dung is regarded as a blessing to that particular place. This Gho pooja or the worshipping of a cow is a very important custom followed by the Hindus. Since cow is considered as a very sacred animal, the slaughtering of cow is considered as a major sin which falls under the five major sins according to the Vedas. Another main reason behind the bringing of the cow into a newly built house and performing the Gho Vardhana pooja is that according to the language of Sanskrit the word Gho also means senses and vardhana means to increase the attachment of the senses towards Sri Krishna.
