While tree worship is not uncommon in Hinduism, the Tulasi plant is regarded as the holiest of all plants. The Tulasi plant is regarded as a threshold point between heaven and earth. A traditional prayer narrates that the creator-god Brahma resides in its branches, all Hindu pilgrimage centres reside in its roots, the Ganges flows within its roots, all deities are in its stem and its leaves, and that the most sacred Hindu texts, the Vedas are found in the upper part of the holy basil’s branches. The Tulasi herb is a centre of household religious devotion, particularly among women and is referred to as the “women’s deity” and “a symbol of wifehood and motherhood”, it is also called “the central sectarian symbol of Hinduism” and Vaishnavites consider it as “the manifestation of god in the plant kingdom”. The Tulasi plant is grown in or near almost every Hindu house, especially by Brahmins and other Hindu castes of the Vaishnavite sect. A house with a Tulasi plant is sometimes considered a place of pilgrimage. Many Hindus have Tulasi plants growing in front of or near their home, often in special pots or a special masonry structure known as Tulasi Vrindavan as this is related to their culture. Traditionally, Tulasi is planted in the centre of the central courtyard of Hindu houses. The plant is cultivated for religious purposes, and for its essential oil.

- Holy Plant Tulsi: In India Basil plays a great significance role as a holy herb. We planted tulsi at tulsi tala outside garden, kitchen garden and as an indoor plant since it is kept sacred in Hindu philosophy. Tulsi plants regarded as the avatar of Lakshmi, and thus the consort of the god Vishnu. The offering of its leaves is mandatory in ritualistic worship of Vishnu and his avatars like Krishna and Vithoba.
