As per the legends,Kamadhenu cow or Surabhi (meaning ‘the fragrant one’) is the mother of all cows. All the gods are believed to reside in the body of Kamadhenu.Her four legs are the scriptural Vedas;her horns are the triune gods Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva;her eyes are the sun and moon gods,her shoulders the fire-god Agni and the wind-god Vayu and her legs are the Himalayas.

Kamadhenu is often addressed by the proper name Surabhi,which is also used as a synonym for an ordinary cow.The Mahabharata records that Kamadhenu-Surabhi rose from the churning of the cosmic ocean (Samudra manthan) by the gods and demons to acquire Amrita (ambrosia,elixir of life).As such, she is regarded the offspring of the gods and demons, created when they churned the cosmic milk ocean and then gifted to the Saptarishi,the seven great seers.She was ordered by the creator-god Brahma to give milk, and supply it and ghee for ritual fire-sacrifices. Various other scriptural references describe Surabhi as the mother of the Rudras including Nirrti (Kashyapa being the father),the cow Nandini and even the serpent-people nagas.

Importance of Idol worship: Idols are not the idle fancies of sculptors,but shining channels through which the heart of the devotee is attracted to and flows towards God. Though the image is worshipped,the devotee feels the presence of the Lord in it and pours out his devotion unto it.Regular worship,Puja and other modes of demonstrating our inner feeling of recognition of Divinity in the idol unveils the Divinity latent in it. This is truly a wonder and a miracle.The picture comes to life.The idol speaks.It will answer your questions and solve your problems.The God in you has the power to awaken the latent Divinity in the idol.The lives of Mirabai, Sant Tukaram, Shri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Shri Yogananda are a few instances to prove the point.They proved beyond doubt that idol worship has its own brighter side and through simple faith and intense devotion one can realize God through it.
Idols are the "finite representation of the Infinite".As per Vishnu Samhita (ch 29, v 55-7), persuasively endorses the use of imagery (idols) and puts it: "Without a form how can God be mediated upon? If (He is) without any form, where will the mind fix itself? When there is nothing for the mind to attach itself to,it will slip away from meditation or will glide into a state of slumber.Therefore the wise will meditate on some form, remembering,however,that the form is a superimposition and not a reality."
