Know the Story Behind Tulsi Vivah

There are different stories in Hinduism regarding Tulsi Vivah. According to a legend, it is said that in ancient times there used to be a demon named Jalandhar. The demon was very brave and mighty and the secret behind his fearlessness was his wife Vrinda, who had always remain loyal.

It was only due to the powerful influence of the fast observed by his wife that the monster became so brave. In such a situation, troubled by his cruelty and torture, the Gods went to Lord Vishnu and requested him to put an end to the demon’s tyranny. Hearing the prayers of all the gods, Lord Vishnu decided to dissolve Vrinda’s oath.

After this, he took the form of Jalandhar and touched Vrinda by tricking her. Vrinda’s husband was fighting the demon Jalandhar with all his might, but he was killed as soon as Vrinda’s piousness was destroyed. As a result, her husband’s severed head fell into her courtyard.

Seeing this, Vrinda became very angry. She thought that if my husband was in the war, who touched me? At that time, Lord Vishnu appeared standing in front of her. Then angry Vrinda cursed Lord Vishnu that, ‘As you have deceived me and separated me from my husband, similarly your wife will also be deceived and you will also seek a new birth to suffer this kind of separation. ‘ After saying this, Vrinda became Sati and sacrificed her life with her husband. It is said that Lord Shri Rama was born in Ayodhya due to the curse of Vrinda and he had to suffer the same separation with Sita Mata. A Tulsi plant appeared where Vrinda became Sati.

According to another popular story about this day, it is said that Vrinda cursed Lord Vishnu by saying, “you have tainted my piousness, hence you will become a stone. This stone will be called Shaligram. Then Vishnu said, “Vrinda, I respect your sacredness, but you will always remain by my side as Tulsi.” Any native who performs our marriage on the day of Kartik Ekadashi will get his/her wishes fulfilled. ‘

That is why it is believed that worship of Shaligram or Vishnu is incomplete without a Tulsi Leaf.
