• Sri Vaikuntha Ekadashi – Tulasi Archana Seva

In the Bhagavad-Gita (Bg. 9.26), Lord Krishna says, "If one offers Me with love and devotion a leaf, a flower, fruit or water, I will accept it."

In this verse, the leaf especially refers to Tulasi which is very dear to Lord Krishna.

Glories of Tulasi Maharani:

  1. Tulasi Maharani is a great devotee of Lord Krishna. The Lotus feet of the Lord are always decorated with Tulasi leaves.
  2. It is stated in the scriptures that if one who offers even a single Tulasi leaf to Lord Krishna, he gets the benefit of offering all other varieties of flowers.
  3. Also by simply offering Tulasi to the Lord, one gets qualified to enter into His abode, Vaikuntha.
  4. Further, by worshipping Lord Krishna with Tulasi leaves, one can also release his ancestors from the bondage of birth and death.
  5. The Gautamiya-Tantra states that Sri Krishna, who is very affectionate towards His devotees, sells Himself to a devotee who merely offers a Tulasi leaf and a palmful of water.
