Tulsi Puja


In the serene village of Devanagari, Meera’s devotion to Lord Krishna deepened as she cared for a thriving tulsi plant. In a divine dream, Lord Krishna promised to wed her, leading to a magnificent Tulsi Puja that united their love and inspired generations with the sacred bond between devotee and deity.

Tulsi Puja, also known as Tulsi Vivah, is like a pretend wedding between the Tulsi plant (a sacred basil) and the Hindu God Vishnu or Krishna. It usually happens in November, marking the start of the Hindu wedding season. This ceremony takes place between two specific dates in the month of Karthik.


Tulsi, a sacred plant, is considered divine in every part, from leaves to branches. Using a paste of tulsi wood to worship Lord Krishna is a simple way to please Him.
Worshipping Lord Krishna with tulsi is as good as offering 100 different flowers, as promised by Lord Krishna to Tulsi Devi.
Having tulsi at home or near your home can help remove sins, even the grave sin of harming a Brahmin.
Medical science recognizes the medicinal properties of tulsi, and it’s used in many medicines.
Tulsi is especially dear to Lord Krishna and is considered the most precious plant.
During the month of Karthik, people welcome Mother Tulsi into their homes through tulsi puja to seek blessings.


Performing the Tulsi Vivah ceremony and giving away Tulsi is like performing the auspicious act of Kanyadan, where you give away your daughters.
Tulsi is believed to remove architectural defects in a house and is considered the holiest plant for Hindus.
In Hindu puja rituals, the Tulsi leaf is essential and symbolizes Goddess Lakshmi, who brings wealth and happiness. Women seek blessings for a happy married life.
