Dr. Sankar Sastri’s Labor of Love!

We enter the Lakshmi Cow Sanctuary and there is Professor Sankar Sastri, tall, stately, and elegantly attired in his dhoti. Dr. Sastri is a Columbia graduate and a former CUNY professor in Mechanical Engineering.

He calls for Rama, Nanda, Durga, Lakshmi, Radha, Yogeshwari, and Vedanta, the one with a question mark on his head, and they all come to greet us. We take turns feeding them and marvel how intelligent these cows are and how fortunate they are to have Professor Sastri look after them.

When Professor Sankar Sastri retired from the CUNY system in 1999 he knew exactly what he would do for the rest of his life. He purchased 42 acres of farmlands in Pennsylvania and converted it into a Cow Sanctuary. 

During the last fifteen years Professor Sastri has rescued many cows from the slaughterhouse and has restored ailing ones to good health with his special brand of care and love.
