Meet the Oxen


In the Bhagavaat Purana the bull is the symbol of religion or dharma.

Ramananda Raya and Dharma Mani are our two oxen.  Ram is Grey with a few dark and white markings, (he has beautiful eyes) and Dharma is brown with white markings and a speckled underbelly.  Dharma is totally friendly and likes people.  Ram is more cautious.  Ram has huge horns.  They were both born in Saranagati Village in June 2016.  Our onsite ox team trainer, Daivata prabhu, has been working with them since they were six months old.  They regularly deliver heavy loads of manure to the neighbors, and occasionally they are used for plowing.

Here are a couple of plowing videos
