Decked-Up Cow Does ‘Grihapravesh’ Of New Home Before Family Members, Watch Video

A few weeks ago, an adorable video of a little pup getting a grand welcome by his new family went viral online. The family had arranged for a ‘grihapravesh’ for the puppy, performed an aarti, and showered flowers on him.

And now, in a video that has gone viral, a fully decked-up cow is seen being welcomed into a new home during a ‘grihapravesh’ ceremony. According to people online, this is a common South-Indian tradition prevalent in Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, and Telangana.

According to tradition, a cow is made to enter the new home first, before anyone else. People even claimed that in some places, it is preferable if a calf tags along with the cow during grihapravesh. It is believed that this brings prosperity and positivity into the house.

People took to the comment section to mention several other practices that are a part of this tradition. Have a look:

Some highlighted how the animal seems to have a hump and thereby, it’s a bull. In that case, the bull is representative of Lord Shiva. However, another person mentioned that this breed of cow is known as ‘Killari’ where even females have a hump and horns.

Such a beautiful tradition, isn’t it?
