Tulsi Vivah 2017 - November 1 (Wednesday)
is celebrated on the next day of Karthik Ekadashi. On this day Tulsi is married to Saaligram
.In 2017, it will be celebrated on November 1 (Wednesday).
The tulsi plant is held sacred by the Hindus as it is regarded to be
an incarnation of Mahalaxmi who was born as Vrinda. Tulsi was married
to demon king Jalandhar. She prayed to Shri Vishnu that her demon
husband should be protected, with the result no God was able to harm
him. However on the request of the other Gods, Shri Vishnu took the
form of Jalandhar and stayed with the unsuspecting Tulsi. When the
truth emerged after Jalandhar’s death, Vrinda cursed Shri Vishnu and
turned him to stone (Saaligram) and collapsed. From her body emerged
the tulsi plant. That is why Vishnu puia is considered incomplete
without tulsi leaves.
The very name Tulsi,
that which cannot be compared, the "incomparable
has spiritually uplifting qualities. Tulsi has been found to
possess extraordinary powers of healing.
