    In Garuda Purana 1.98.8 it is stated that

    one who donates cow or serves cow remains in heaven for as many years as there are hairs on the body of that cow. If the cow is tawny, it enables his seven generations to cross hell.

    In the Agni Purana, Dhanvantari said to Acharya Susruta:

    “To caress and to bathe the cow is like cleansing ones sinful reactions.”

    In the Mahabharata it is written:

    “Oh Bharata, nothing is rare for a devotee of the cow. Whatever such devotees desire, they achieve. A lady who is devoted to the cow can have her desires fulfilled by the cow’s mercy. One who desires a son or a daughter, who desires wealth, one who desires piety, or knowledge — all can get their desires fulfilled by the mercy of the cow.”

    so from the above verse ,we can clearly see how worshiping ,serving and protecting cows gives lots of material benefits alongside spiritual benefits even if performed without proper understanding( agyata sukriti ) .Then what to say about the pure devotees of lord ,who in full consciousness of krishna serves the cow .
