Tulasi Vivaha and Tulasi Namashtak Stotra

Tulsi Blessed By Bhagwan Hari

Tulasi Vivaha and Tulasi Namashtak Stotra 

Tulasi Vivaha means marriage of Tulasi. Tulasi was a gopi in golok. Devi Bhagavati Radha became unpleased with her and she cursed Tulasi. Then God Shrikrishna blessed her and told her that while you are on pruthavi lok because of your Tapasya, God Brahma will bless you and you will marry Shri Hari who is the incarnation of me only. Because of the cursing Tulasi had to take birth on the Pruthavi Lok. It is a custom to celebrate this Tulasi Vivaha i.e. marriage of Tulasi with God Hari (God Vishnu) in the month of Kartik Shukla Paksha. It is celebrated on Kartik Shukla Dwadashi. This year we will be celebrating it on 7th November 2011 on Monday. However there are some other opinions about the day of celebration. Some people say that it can be celebrated on Kartik Shukla Navami (9), Dashmi (10) or Ekadashi (11). Others say that it can be celebrated on any day from Kartik Shukla Ekadashi to Kartik Shukla Pournima. Some others say that it can be celebrated on any tithi (day) in Kartik Shukla Paksha when there is a Nakshatra suitable for marriage. We have to perform Dhyana of Tulasi Devi. We have to assume that Tulasi Bush is Devi Tulasi. Then we have to worship (perform pooja) of Devi Tulasi with Shodoshopacharas i.e. with all required things for the pooja which includes Ghee, Dhoopa, Deep, Sindoor, Chandan, flowers, Naivedya (prasadam) and many other things. Then we have to recite/listen Devi Tulasi Namashtak followed by Aarti and finally the celebration of her marriage with God Vishnu. Afterwards Tulasi Was asked to live on PruthaviLok as a Tulsi Bush. We know Tulasi is very useful and it is a medicine in itself which we use many times for curing diseases. Fala ShrutiI: Our sins get vanished. The person who has no son is blessed with son. Man/Woman who had problem about marriage shortly gets married. Those who are suffering from diseases get well and become healthy and happy. Those who have some type of fear get relief from fear and become strong and happy. Thus by the blessings of Devi Tulasi we become happy, wealthy, and healthy and at the end of our life we rest in peace with God Vishnu in Vaikuntha (Vishnu Lok).
