When Lord Krishna lifted the Govardhan hill to protect the cows, cowherds, milkmaids and denizens of Vrindavan from the wrath of Indra (the God of rains). Indra realized his mistake and accepted him as the Supreme Power. At the same time, when Indra asked for the forgiveness for his audacity from Krishna, the queen of the Cows, Surabhi showered the rain of milk on Krishna to show her gratitude and called him with the name of “Govinda”, meaning “lord of the cows.”
