Out of the many festivals celebrated in the auspicious month of Kartik, the marriage of Tulsi holds special relevance for all Hindus. As is obvious from the name, the festival marks the marriage of the sacred plant of Tulsi on the Ekadashi Tithi, after the festival of Diwali.
This festival is celebrated in a unique manner, and the puja performed on this occasion mirrors it. Devotees are filled with excitement to the brim as they eagerly perform the rituals of this day to get the blessings of the Gods. Let us look at the major steps involved in the puja of this event-
देवी त्वं निर्मिता पूर्वमर्चि-तासि मुनीश्वरैः
नमो नमस्ते तुलसी पापं हर हरिप्रिये॥
Conclude the puja by performing the aarti.
The Tulsi plant has a lot of significance in the religion of Hinduism, but it also has an equal significance in astrology, if not more. It is said to be immensely helpful in removing the negative effects of Moon and Venus doshas in one’s birth chart. If the position of the Sun and the Moon is weak in one’s horoscope, wearing a Tulsi mala can be of great help. Doing so helps to remove the doshas in one’s eighth as well as sixth house while also making the seventh house stronger. On the one hand, worshipping a Tulsi plant by a married individual can bestow happiness in their marital life. On the other hand, singles are said to be blessed by a perfect match if they worship the plant. It, therefore, makes relationships stronger. Astrology, therefore, regards Tulsi with great reverence and the plant also holds a lot of significance in removing Vaastu doshas from one’s home.
Many distinctive rituals are performed on this occasion, and as a result, people look forward to this festival. The zeal and enthusiasm of the devotees on this day are unmatched. Here are the prominent rituals associated with day-
According to the scriptures, it is believed that devotees who perform this vivah or ceremonial marriage give away the Tulsi plant as their own daughter, thus performing the ritual of Kanyadaan. Kanyadaan is believed to be the biggest daan or charitable action one can perform, as per Hinduism. By performing the puja for this festival, one can get the credit for this daan.
The plant of Tulsi holds a lot of reverence in the Hindu religion and is considered sacred. It is believed to channel such great positivity that it can make the doshas or architectural defects in one’s house disappear. The plant is so important that no puja is considered complete without making an offering of the leaves of Tulsi to the Gods. It is loved by Lord Krishna, Lord Vishnu as well as Goddess Laxmi and also has extremely high medicinal benefits.
As the folklore goes, there was a demon called Jalandhar who was gaining prominence due to his notorious acts, and he continued to reign supreme owing to the piousness of his wife, Brinda. She was a staunch worshipper of Lord Vishnu and was an extremely virtuous woman. She prayed for the well-being of her husband, day and night.
Irked by the evil doings of Jalandhar, Lord Vishnu decided to put an end to his torments. He took the form of Jalandhar and took Brinda’s celibacy. Due to this, Jalandhar was no longer protected and lost the war, reaching his end. When Brinda realized the truth, she cursed Lord Vishnu, turning him into a stone called Shaligram. She then immolated herself along with her husband’s dead body. Lord Vishnu then transformed Brinda’s soul into a plant named Tulsi and promised to marry her. On the Prabodhini Ekadashi in her next birth, Lord Vishnu, in the form of Shaligram, married Tulsi to fulfill his promise.
This unique festival is celebrated by devotees with hearts full of hope and reverence. Celebrated on the Ekadashi tithi, Tulsi vivah dates and time are deemed extremely auspicious, and devotees who perform the puja are rewarded with health, prosperity, and peace in their lives.
