The Auspicious Tulsi

Every herb, fauna and flora gifted to us by mother earth has its own significance and reason behind its existence. The auspicious herb Tulsi or Basil has proved its great importance in Hindu Mythology and scientifically. Tulsi is also called Brinda thus some saints call Vrindavan the ‘Groves of Tulsi’ and as Sri Krishna loves Tulsi people form garlands and offer bhog with garnish of Tulsi. In home alters placing Tulsi Plant near Lord Shri Sitaram, Sri Laxmi Narayan or Sri Radhakrishnan or Sri Salagrama or Sri Jagganath or any avatar of Shri Vishnu bestows blissful prosperity and peace to every soul living or worshiping them. Now a day we cannot grow tulsi in every place due to climate and space restrictions. Silver is the purest metal considered in Vedas and can be easily used in worshiping Lords without any hesitation.
