Brief History of Tulsi Vivah
To comprehend the profound significance of Tulsi Vivah, delving into its historical roots is essential. According to Hindu mythology, the tulsi plant is considered a sacred incarnation of Goddess Lakshmi, the consort of Lord Vishnu. The marriage of Tulsi to Lord Vishnu is believed to have taken place on this auspicious day, symbolizing the divine union of two powerful entities.
Legend has it that Tulsi, in her previous birth, was a devoted princess named Vrinda. Due to a series of celestial events, Vrinda cursed Lord Vishnu to turn into a stone. To release him from the curse, she immolated herself, and from her ashes, the tulsi plant emerged. To honor Vrinda’s sacrifice, Lord Vishnu blessed her by promising to marry her in the form of the tulsi plant on the day of Tulsi Vivah.
Tulsi Vivah, therefore, stands as a testament to the eternal bond between devotion and divinity. It is a celebration of love, sacrifice, and the auspicious beginning of the wedding season.
