    Uthana dwadasi- thulasi kalyanam

    Tulasi Habba or Tulasi Pooje is celebrated a fortnight after Deepavali. It signifies the day Tulasi married Lord Vishnu. On this day, Tulasi katte is decorated like a bride. Amla trees are planted along with the tulsi plant.
    Tulasi came out of the ocean during Amrita Manthan as a younger sister of Lakshmi. She too was devoted to Lord Vishnu and wanted to marry him. But Lakshmi who was already married to him did not like the idea and cursed her to become a plant. Thus the tulasi plant was born. But the all merciful Lord Vishnu took pity and fulfilling her wish declared that when he will be in the form of a saligrama, found in most temples and madhwa houses, she will remain close to him in the form of a tulasi leaf. Therefore even today a saligrama will have a tulsi leaf along with it. In front of every Hindu home there will be a tulasi katte in which a plant grows round the year.
    Although the prayers are offered to Tulasi everyday by watering the plant in the morning and lighting an oil lamp before it in the evening, on Kartik Shukla Dwadashi there will be an annual Tulasi Pooja in the evening when the tulasi katte will be beautifully decorated with clay lamps.

    Amla- Shri Krishna
    Tulasi- Shri Tulasi devi

    Tulasi Praathane
    namah tulasi kalyaaNi namo vishhnu priye shubhe |
    namo moksha pradaayike devi namaH sampatpradaayike ||

    Tulasige Namaskara
    Yanmule sarva thirthani yanmadye sarva devatha |
    yadagre sarva vedashcha Tulasi thvam namam mayham ||

    Tulasi Dyana

    prasannam panmakalhara varabhaya chaturbhuja
    kiritahara keyura kundaladi vibushitam

    This is very famous tradition among "Madhvas". So, I kindly request anyother Madhwa familiar in doing this to elaborate the whole function. I want to know how this marriage function is celebrated
    1. Whether the amla stalk can be removed afterwards the pooja?
    2. What naivedyam should be prepared?
    3. What songs and mantras are there for this?
    4. At what time pooja has to be done? Morning or evening?
    5. What are the procedures?

    Pranams

    My parents thought the name I am having was the apt one for me for the reason that I was born on Uttana Dwadeshi 67 years ago.
