Legend

According to a legend, there was a true devotee of Vishnu, named Vrinda. She was married to a demon named JalandharJalandharJalandhar

who only believed in creating havoc in all the three worlds. It was due to Vrinda’s prayers and chastity that no one could harm the demon, not even Shiva.

Vishnu asked for forgiveness for his deceiving act. He even named his abode as Vrindavan. It is an important Hindu pilgrimage site where Krishna spent his childhood days. Mathura- It is a city in North Indian State, Uttar Pradesh, known for being the birthplace of Krishna (It is Krishna’s abode). Also to restore her chastity, he told Vrinda that he would marry her in her next birth when she would be born as Tulsi.

According to some legends, Vrinda drowned herself in an ocean and Vishnu saved her soul by placing it into Tulsi plant.

Rituals

A devotee should bring a tulsi plant and a black stone known as Shaligram, representing Vishnu, to his home. In case the stone is unavailable, one can also use an image or an idol of the Lord. Also, the tulsi plant used should be three to four years old. If a tulsi plant is already situated in the house, then a marriage booth should be constructed around it. The plant should be treated like a bride. Firstly, one should apply turmeric and sandalwood paste on the plant and it should also be offered vermillion powder, kohl, bangles, henna and red chunni or saree. Items like sugarcane sticks, tamarind and Indian gooseberry branches are placed next to the plant, along with the black stone of the idol.

All ceremonies, similar to those of Hindu weddings, are then performed by a priest who visits the house of the devotees who want to celebrate the wedding. Wedding mantras are chanted and finally a mangal sutra is tied to the plant. Kanyadaan is also part of the custom in which an elderly person gives away the bride, tulsi, to the groom Vishnu. Saath Phere Phere, also known as saathphere, means seven circumambulations. It is one of the most important ritual in Hindu wedding in which the bride and the groom take seven rounds around a pious fire that is lit especially for the ceremony to take place. Each round taken represents one of the promises made by the couple to each other like man promising to get food in the house, wife promising to take care of his family like her own etc.can also be performed by making two people hold the tusli plant and the idol of Vishnu respectively and taking seven circumambulations around the sacred fire. People finally shower flowers and rice grains on the couple and bless them with lifetime of happiness. Many people also place the tulsi plant in a palanquin and take her to a temple dedicated to Vishnu or Krishna.

People prepare a large feast of vegetarian meals, in which sweets are a must. They are first offered to the God and then distributed among devotees as prasadam. A devotee may also opt for observing a fast from morning till the evening and consuming food after the ceremonies are completed.

Significance


Tulsi is the symbol of purity and the ceremony represents God’s love for the same. One can get closer to Vishnu with pure devotion, pious mindset and pristine thoughts. It is also the symbol of oneness and the unity between the soul and the God.
