TULSI POOJA

Tulsi is a consecrated plant that holds lot of importance for the traditional Hindus. In most of the Hindu homes, people worship Tulsi plant on a daily basis. Many people keep a plant of Tulsi in front of their house, since Tulsi has a lot of reverence for them. On the festive occasion of 'Kartik Shukla Dwadashi' that usually falls two weeks after the celebration of Diwali, tulsi plants are adorned with varied artistic things made from sugarcane, flowers and mango leaves. After decorating Tulsi Vrindavana, people offer prayers to Tulsi. Clay lamps are lit all around the tulsi plant. The event is usually celebrated as tulsi vivah, in which tulsi is married to Lord Vishnu.
Today, Thursday 14th November 2013, also being children's day, Tulsi pooja was celebrated at Birthi Mane. Tulsi Brindavan was decorated and nellikai plant branch was planted with tulsi plant, as a symbol of Lord Vishnu marrying Tulsi,  light the lamp on nelli kai, and bless the family.
