TULASI VIVAH TEMPLE CELEBRATION
Tulasi Vivah – TEMPLE CELEBRATION ON SUNDAY
Tulsi Puja plays a very significant role for Hindus. It is believed that on this day, Lord Vishnu married Goddess Tulsi in the form of Shaligram or his Shri Krishna avatar on Prabodhini Ekadashi. As per the Hindu scriptures, Tulsi Mata is said to be the avatar of Goddess Lakshmi who is the wife of Lord Vishnu. She took birth as Vrinda, as the legends say. Hence, this day is considered to be the most auspicious day for conducting rituals and ceremonies related to marriage along with Kanyadaan.
Married women across India perform the Tulsi Vivah puja for the well-being of their husbands and family members. The Hindus worship the tulsi plant, and Tulsi herself is thought to be an incarnation of Goddess Mahalakshmi, who was previously known as ‘Vrinda.’ To obtain marital bliss, young women pray to Goddess Lakshmi with full dedication. Young, unmarried women also follow Tulsi Vivah rituals in order to find good husbands. Also, many schedule their marriage on Tulsi Vivah day as it blesses the couple with blissful married life.
