Tulsi Vivah 2022 Date and Significance: Know Shubh Muhurat and Puja Rituals

Tulsi Vivah 2022 Date: Tulsi Vivah is a significant day for Shri Krishna devotees because it commemorates the marriage anniversary of Goddess Tulsi (also known as Vrinda) and Shri Krishna or the Shaligram form of Lord Vishnu. Furthermore, it concurs with Dev Uthani Ekadashi (traditionally known as Devutthana or Prabodhini Ekadashi or Dev Uthani Gyaras).

Tulsi is honored as the consort and goddess of Lord Krishna. Surprisingly, the gardens of the majority of Indian homes include this holy plant. And practically every day, people worship the tulsi plant.

However, Tulsi is related to Kartik’s Ekadashi Titi, Shukla Paksha (the 11th day of the Kartik Hindu Moon’s Waxing Phase). The Shaligram god Vishnu and Vrinda, another name for Tulsi, allegedly wed on this day. On the other hand, Vaishnavas commemorate Tulsi Viva, also known as Dwadasi Titi (12th), the following day. Discover the Tulsi Viva dates, tithes, and other crucial information for 2022.

Story of Tulsi Vivah

A formidable demon named Jalandhar has existed from the beginning of existence. He was wed to one of Lord Vishnu’s most devoted devotees, Vrinda. Jalandhar became unbeatable as a result of Vrinda’s honorable religion. Jalandhar grew arrogant about his invincibility after defeating Lord Shiva in the battle and started pestering heavenly maidens (apsaras). Lord Indra was horrified by Jalandhar’s actions. Nearly all of the gods were terrified by Jalandhar’s terror. All the gods went to Lord Vishnu and begged him to put an end to the fear in Jalandhar.

Lord Vishnu assumed the guise of Jalandhar at the gods’ behest and subverted the agrarian religion of Vrinda. Jalandhara’s power is diminished when Vrinda’s noble dharma is destroyed and he dies in combat. Vrinda condemned Lord Vishnu to stone after learning that he had wrongfully perverted her husband’s religion. The moment Lord Vishnu turned to stone, the gods were all furious. Everyone pleaded with Vrinda to end the curse. From her mercy, Vrinda released her curse. To maintain Vrinda’s curse, Lord Vishnu, who was repentant for his actions, manifested the stone known as the Shaligram.

Rituals for Tulsi Vivah Puja

The marriage ceremony between Lord Krishna and Tulsi is comparable to customary Hindu wedding rituals carried out in homes and temples. Even a little mandap is provided, and tulsi plants are decorated to resemble brides. Most married ladies perform this pooja for their husbands and families. They maintain their fast till the rite is done in the evening. Puja locations are embellished with vibrant rangoli, and tulsi are painted with vermilion and haldi. During the ceremony, brass idols or images of Lord Vishnu or Lord Krishna are displayed. Mantras and Tulsi Aarti are chanted during this time, and then everyone is given Prasad, which is a meal of sweets.
