Goshala & Agriculture

An important goal of the Dhama is to create a self-sustaining community, wherein we can produce and provide the necessary food and nutrition for our residents and visitors.

Sasyaveda or Science of Agriculture

In order to grow a wide range of crops and essential fruits & vegetables, SSD has leveled over 5 acres of land for agriculture. It is a blessing to eat the fruits of our own labor, after a successful harvest season. Eventually, the Dhama plans to create an Ayurvedic garden with medicinal herbs and plants for self-care and for use in Naturopathic healing.

Goshala or Cow Shed

SSD delights in the care and housing of the sacred mother cows. With about 120 students living on campus in the near future, the healthy cows should be able to provide sufficient milk, ghee, and yogurt for our residents and daily visitors.
