Tulasi Devi may look like an ordinary plant, but she is a transcendental personality who can award immense blessings in spiritual life. Being the manifestation of Vrinda Devi in this world, she is the arranger of intimate pastimes between Radha and Krishna. By pleasing Tulasi, who is also called Bhakti Devi, one can attain pure devotion for the Lord. Gaudiya Vaishnava acharyas recommend keeping a Tulasi plant in one’s home and worshipping her daily, for simply by seeing Tulasi, offering obeisances, circumambulating, and watering her, or chanting before her, one gains spiritual strength and relief from all distress. Indeed, one’s home is transformed into the abode of the Lord.
