Tulsi Vivah Story 

The story behind Tulsi Vivah is about the demon who was raised from Lord Shiva’s temper and became an enemy with all the deities. Later, he got married to Vrinda as his Guru told him to marry because Vrinda was a loyal woman and a passionate devotee to Lord Vishnu.

Tulsi Vivah Date, Story & Significance

After Jhalandar married Vrinda, he became impossible to kill, and every deity failed to kill him. After some time Vrinda decided to conduct a Yagna (Puja) for the long life of her husband Jalandhar, Lord Vishnu knew that if she got successful at this puja then killing Jalandhar would be impossible for all of them. So Lord Vishnu decided to go in Jalandhar’s disguise and then destroyed her Puja.

When Vrinda comes to know that he is not his husband but Lord Vishnu, she curses Vishnu that he would change into stone which is now worshipped as shaligram. After Goddess Laxmi came to know that she went to Vrinda and requested her to please take her curse back, Vrinda was too kind and she finally relieved Lord Vishnu but she ended her own life. 

Because of her true devotion towards him, Vishnu blessed her that she would be alive forever in the form of the plant (Tulsi) and Lord Vishnu would marry her in the form of shaligram, and without Tulsi, his Puja would be incomplete since then Tulsi Vivah with shaligram is celebrated in Hindu religious among the world.
