    Dear Mrs. Chitvish,

    This is to thank you for the Thulsi prayer in Tamil. I am new to IL. I have been doing the Thulsi puja for several years and have been looking for this prayer in various sites with no luck. I had seen this prayer in a book long ago and liked it.

    I cant describe how happy you have made me. I am a great believer in Thulsi puja. My mother did it till she died last year at the age of 81yrs.

    Love,
    Amma15

    dear maami,

    just hearing the name tulasi itself relieves the stress. i would like to know one piece of information, can theetu, echal, be a reason for not growing tulasi plant in the house b'cos in flats many come and go. does theetu affect the thulasi's growth. after knowing its spiritual values no one will go and touch it but people may pass thru . am very much interested to grow tulasi but elders in my house denied saying theetu as the reason as it is the flat and asked me not to keep. but i love to have it.

    hi chitramam
    very interesting thread...but too late to go thru ..after reading i felt to write abt my words..
    me also a tulasi worshipper..everymorning i use to chant tulasi stothrams nd go around her nd have tulasi theertham too..this was taught by my MIL just after my marriage..evenings i light the lamp nd again go around her..in karthik masam,every early morning we put multicoloured kolams(kumkum,turmeric,charcol,rice powder,green leaf powder) in front of tulasi nd the great thulasi pooja is conducted once in a year(end of the karthik masam) nd light lots of lamps nd make sweet poha as nivedyam..totally religiouswise its a good experience not only for adults but also kids..:)

    Sorry Kantha, I just noticed this post!:-(
    You can pluck & use it for puja or give to temple. But do not pluck on Tuesday & friday.
    Love,
    Chithra.
