The Tulsi plant is highly valued in Hinduism as a symbol of purity, good fortune, and divine benefits. Having a Tulsi plant in the home is regarded as sacred, and devotees attribute numerous spiritual and marriage-related benefits to this hallowed herb.
Tulsi Vivah: The Ceremonial Marriage

Wisdom of Pandit Ramashankar Ji
Pandit Ramashankar Ji imparts knowledge from the golden era, when gopis fasted and performed penance in order to get prosperity. Tulsi Vivah is thought to be a healing ceremony that can cure marital flaws and help couples come together.
Nurturing the Tulsi Plant
Those who participate in Tulsi Vivah are told to care for and nurture the Tulsi plant as if it were a kid. The plant, which is married to Lord Shaliharm in a ritual akin to a daughter’s marriage, is thought to forgive marital infirmities and purge people of misdeeds from previous lifetimes.
Seeking Divine Intervention for Suitable Matches
It is advised that men who are having trouble finding a compatible partner present Lord Vishnu with Tulsi leaves on a daily basis. Lord Vishnu is claimed to find the greatest satisfaction in tulsi leaves, hence this practise is thought to appease him.
Symbolism of the Marriage
In Hinduism, the marriage of Tulsi and Lord Vishnu marks the beginning of the wedding season and represents the joining of the heavenly and material worlds. In preparation for the ritual, devotees adorn the Tulsi plant with colourful sarees, flowers, and traditional jewellery. On this holy day, people observe fasts and rituals in their homes and temples.
