Part of Thai Pongal festivities includes what is called Maattu Pongal. (Maattu meaning Cow in Tamil) This is where Cows are teated with special reverence, provided treats, decorated and honored for the year's service to mankind. In the monastery we observe this in a simple and sweet way by decorating our cows and performing a short go puja (cow puja).
