The holy Tulsi (basil) plant and Lord Vishnu or his avatar, Lord Krishna, are wed in a sacred ceremony known as the Tulsi Vivah. This ceremonial ceremony is held in the month of Kartik by the Panchang and Hindu calendars (Shukla Paksha). The eleventh lunar day, Prabodhini Ekadashi, marks the start of the Tulsi Marriage festivities, which last until the full moon night, or Kartik Poornima. However, the holiday is only observed on the eleventh or till the twelfth lunar day in many areas of India.
What importance does Tulsi Vivah have ?
One of the luckiest days in the Hindu calendar is known as Tulsi Vivah. The season for Hindu weddings in India officially begins today. Married women conduct the Tulsi Vivah Vrat and Puja rigorously for the happiness of their marriages, their husbands’ health, and their children’s welfare. In contrast, single women do so to find excellent spouses. The sacred plant of Tulsi, which is kept in every Hindu home, is considered an incarnation of Devi Laxmi.
According to a well-known myth, Goddess Tulsi was once Vrinda, a woman who married Jalandhar, an evil king. She prayed to God Vishnu for her husband’s well-being and long life. Jalandhar consequently gained invincibility. Lord Shiva asked Lord Vishnu to lessen the influence of Jalandhar. To trick Vrinda, Lord Vishnu assumed the identity of the terrible king Jalandhar.
As a result, Jalandhar lost its independence and was destroyed by Lord Shiva. When Vrinda realized the truth, she cursed Lord Vishnu and committed suicide by drowning in the sea. Her spirit was implanted in the plant, becoming known as tulsi by Lord Vishnu and other gods. Additionally, on the day of Prabodhini Ekadashi, Lord Vishnu wedded Tulsi in the subsequent life in the shape of Shaligram (a black stone). It is the cause of the zeal with which Tulsi Vivah is observed on this day.

Rituals associated with Tulsi Vivah
The entire family spends the day getting ready for the ceremony. A mandap is later erected around the revered Tulsi plant in the evening. People dress up their tulsi as a bride with a sparkling saree and lovely jewelry.
The Tulsi plant is decorated with a paper face in the belief that this will beautify the bride. However, they added a bindi, a nose ring, and other embellishments. Nevertheless, they embellish a brass statue of Lord Krishna and Goddess Tulsi for worship. The idol is dressed in a dhoti and a mala.
After that, followers perform the wedding ceremony by exchanging cotton threads, or “Varmala,” and joining the couple with a necklace called a Mangalsootra, which the groom fastens around the bride’s neck to consummate the union.
