As it is amply clear by the name, in this ritual some jaggery is taken and given the shape of a cow and a calf. The land is purified by coating it with cow-dung. After that, a black deer-skin is spread on that purified area. Some kusha grass are then spread on the deer-skin and covered with a piece of cloth. Now, both the idols of cow and its calf are worshipped with appropriate rituals after which they are donated to brahmins. A devotee should also should also donate shoes, umbrella and if possible, a gold ring to brahmins. Donating a Gud-Dhenu enables a man to attain to such divine world where sages and hermits dwell. By doing thus,he also liberates his ancestors and the future generations.
