Until 80-90 years ago, the Tulsi plant was available in almost every Hindu house, whose curative oil spread throughout the house along with the air.
The people of the house used to offer water to Tulsi after baths and used to eat its leaves. Women used to light lamps in the evening, worshiping Tulsi considering it as God’s form. Due to this, there was protection from many diseases.
Tulsi is the only plant in the world whose curative oil contained in the almanac spreads to the surrounding atmosphere through the wind.
Tulsi was ostracized from the house by those who run blindly after modernity, due to which disease, discord, and unrest have increased manifold.
Karunasindhu Pujya Bapuji could not bear the suffering of human society and Pujyashree took the glory and utility of Tulsi to the masses in the last 50 years.
The importance of Tulsi was described in the scriptures, and the felt use and utility of Tulsi were told to the society. Keeping in view the demand of the time, on 25th December, the ‘Tulsi Pujan Diwas‘ festival was also started.
Wealth giver and poverty killer Tulsi
Planting a basil plant in the northeast and keeping Gangajal in the place of worship brings blessings.
Offering water to Tulsi daily and lighting a lamp of cow’s ghee increases happiness and prosperity in the house.
