Kamadhenu is the divine cow mentioned in Hindu scriptures especially in the Mahabharata. It has the power to fulfill all wishes. The story of origin of Kamadhenu is associated with the churning of ocean or Samudhra Manthan.

He who controls and cleans his mind becomes a child again – Sant Kabir

Mind bird flies here and there Tasting mundane pleasure As long as the knowledge falcon Has not taken it over.
Same is the semen, skin, urine Same is the blood and bone From single source we all are born How one is a Shudra, the other a Brahmin.
We all hail from the same land And reach here on earth Touched by the winds that blow here Each pursues his own path.
You cannot get the Lord If your heart is impure
He who controls and cleans his mind And makes its meditate on the Lord He again becomes as simple as a child
Harsh word is worst of al Burns its target to ash Sweet words is like heaven’s nectar
It pleases, cools, dose not harass. Sant Kabir
