“Tulsi Vivah” celebrated at Radha Krishan Deewan Mandir at R.S Pura

A function was organized at R.S Pura in the local Radha Krishan Temple Ward No. 5 commonly known as Deewana Mandir, on the occasion of Kartik Ekadashi ,Tulsi Vivah was conducted, in which M.L.A R.S Pura Dr.Gagan Bhagat and Vice Chairman Kissan Advisory Board were specially present on the occasion to witness the first ever “Tulsi Vivah” at Sub-District R.S Pura .Special Puja was conducted in the premise of the Shree Krishna temple. The Baarat of Shaligram , whom the Tulsi is married came from Bishnah. The Tulsi Plant is held sacred by the Hindus, as it is regarded to be an incarnation of Mahalaxmi who was born as Vrinda, later the Tulsi was married to the demon King Jalandhar, she prayed to Lord Shri Vishnu that her demon husband should be protected, and with the result no God was able to harm or defeat him, as she was considered to be a “Pativrata Stri”.However on the request of other Gods the Lord Vishnu took the form of Jalandhar and stayed with the unsuspecting Tulsi, when the truth was revealed after the death of Demon King Jalandhar ,Vrinda (Tulsi) cursed Lord Vishnu and turned him into Stone (Shaligram) and collapsed. From her body emerged the plant of Tulsi, that is why Vishnu Puja is considered to be incomplete without the Tulsi leaves. The word “Tulsi” means what which cannot be compared, the “incomparable one”, and has spirituality uplifting qualities. The Tulsi has been found to possess extraordinary power of healing and has unbelievable Medicinal value as the practitioners of Ayurveda believe. While addressing the gathering Dr. Gagan Bhagat praised the Convener of Krishan Madhav trust Mahant Rajesh Sharma “Bittu” for organizing the Tulsi Vivah after a gap of 15 years, and such religious events revives the cultural and religious value of the country.
