Tulsi Vivah - Know Puja Vidhi & Story

Tulsi worship has special significance in the scriptures. Although Tulsi Ji is worshiped throughout the year, the Tulsi Puja performed in Kartik month and the Deepdan in front of Tulsi will provide the desired fruits and blessings of Lord Vishnu. If you offer Tulsi to Lord Shrihari on any day of the month of Kartik, then its fruit becomes many times more than the fruit of a cow.

According to the scriptures, the tradition of marrying Tulsi on the day of Ekadashi of Shukla Paksha of Kartik month is very ancient. Some people do Tulsi Vivah on Ekadashi day, while some people do Tulsi Vivah on Dwadashi Tithi. This day is considered very auspicious for Lord Tulsi to rise.

Tulsi Vivah Puja Vidhi

  • On the day of Tulsi Ekadashi or Dwadashi on both of these days, on the day you get Tulsi married, first of all, keep the fast after morning bath.
  • And in the courtyard of the house, make a cane canopy near the basil plant and decorate it with pylon.
  • After this, offer red chunari to the basil plant.
  • And offer them makeup items.
  • And keep the Saligram form of Lord Vishnu near the plant of Tulsi ji and dedicate milk and turmeric to them.
  • Also do recite Mangalashtak at the time of Tulsi Vivah.
  • And in front of both of them, light a lamp of ghee, read or listen to the story of Tulsi Vivah.
  • After this, whoever is present in the house, takes Shaligram ji in his hands and does seven circumambulations of Tulsi ji.
  • And then put the Shaligram god to the left of Tulsi ji.
  • Finally perform a Tulsi Vivah by praying aarti and touching the feet of God and wishing for happiness and prosperity.

Story of Tulsi Vivah

According to the legend, once a very beautiful girl was born in the demon clan. Whose name was Vrinda? Vrinda was a great devotee who worshiped Lord Vishnu since childhood. As she grew up, she was married to a demon named Jalandhar. Jalandhar gained more power with devotion to Vrinda.

And because of his devotion to Vrinda, he became powerful. He started persecuting not only humans but also gods and demons. All the gods and goddesses went to Lord Vishnu to diagnose this problem. Then in order to get the Gods out of this problem, Lord Vishnu took the form of Jalandhar and destroyed the husbandry religion of Vrinda.
Due to which the powers of Jalandhar were reduced and he was killed in the war.

On discovering this, Vrinda cursed Lord Vishnu to be stoned due to this deceit. All the gods and goddesses urged Vrinda to withdraw his curse, after which Vrinda withdrew his curse. But she was consumed in the fire. Lord Vishnu planted a plant from the ashes of Vrinda named Tulsi. And said that along with my worship, Tulsi will also be worshiped. Since then, worship of Lord Vishnu is considered incomplete without Tulsi Puja.
