Tulsi is a sacred plant which can be found in almost every Hindu's home. Tulsi Puja (Worship of Maata Tulsi) is observed almost every day. The sacred plant, Maata Tulsi is regarded as the incarnation of the goddess Mhalakshmi. Maata Tulsi represents duty, dedication, love, virtue and sorrow of all women. That is why this herb is usually worshipped by women of all age groups.
To begin Tulsi Puja, one is required to take a bath. Decorate the pot where Tulsi is grown. Offer water to the sacred plant. Apply kumkum on one of its leaf. A length of red cloth can be wrapped along the stem. Offer red flower to the sacred herb, Tulsi. Offer fruits by placing them near the pot. Light the clay lamp and perform Aarti to complete the Tulsi Puja. People usually take a leaf of Tulsi after the Puja and put it in their mouth. It is believed by committing such act; they are taking the spirit of goddess inside them.
It is considered that the month of Kartik (October-November) is loved by Tulsi. And on a specific day (Kartik Shukla Dwadashi) of this month there is a tradition when Tulsi plants are beautifully decorated with structures made of sugarcane, mango leaves and flowers and then a Puja is offered. In northern India and in Gaudiya Vaishnava communities, it is called the 'Tulsi Vivah' or the wedding day of Tulsi and Shaligram (Vishnu).
