Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


This is My idea, O father, and you may carry it out if it appeals to you. Such a sacrifice will be very dear to the cows, the brāhmaṇas and Govardhana Hill, and also to Me.


Whatever is pleasing to the brāhmaṇas, the cows and the Supreme Lord Himself is auspicious and beneficial for the entire world. Spiritually blind "modern" people do not understand this and instead adopt a "scientific" approach to life that is rapidly destroying the entire earth.
