Let us know about Tulsi Pujan Diwas through questions and answers

Tulsi Pujan Diwas was initiated nationwide in 2014 under the sacred inspiration of the revered Saint Shri Asharamji Bapu. It is celebrated every year on 25th December.

Worshiping Tulsi will enhance intelligence, morale, character, and health. Individuals will be shielded from mental depression, suicide, etc., and they will reap the benefits of this profound knowledge – the science of Indian culture.

With the philanthropic aim of bringing prosperity, happiness, harmony, health, and peace to the lives of people in the world, ‘Tulsi Puja Diwas’ was started by Bapuji.  It is the vision of this saint that the medicinal, spiritual, and environmental benefits of Tulsi shall bring widespread advantages to the society. 

It is noteworthy that during the period from 25th December to 1st January, to bid farewell to the year, incidents such as the consumption of alcohol, intoxicants, suicides, destruction, and unethical acts by young people occur frequently due to blind imitation of the Western culture. Celebrating Tulsi Pujan Diwas during these days will prove to be a blessing, as Tulsi serves as an excellent anti-depressant, increasing enthusiasm, vigor, and sattvikta (positive vibes).

It is shocking to learn that India’s oldest Apex Chamber, The Associated Chambers of Commerce & Industry’s (ASSOCHAM) survey on alcohol consumption during the period of December 25 to January 1 has revealed that teenagers aged 14 to 19 years heavily consume alcohol on these occasions. This is the reason why alcohol consumption increased up to three times during this period.

Consumption of other alcoholic beverages also increases during these days. Apart from elders, young people also consume them in large numbers. This not only causes physical harm to teenagers and young boys and girls, but their behavior also changes and their actions also become risky. Its result many times comes in the form of HIV infection (AIDS disease), while many people also suffer from many incurable diseases.

About 70% of teenagers consume alcohol on occasions like farewell parties, Christmas and New Year parties, Valentine’s Day, and birthdays. According to another survey, 40% of total road accidents in India are caused by alcohol.

All the actions done for the fulfillment of lust are prohibited during Dhanurmasa (a period of nearly one month, starting usually around 14-16 December and extending up to the mid of January); however, the actions done for the sake of God’s love during this period are especially productive and give inner joy. 25th December falls in the midst of the Dhanurmasa.

To get rid of all these serious problems of mankind, Tulsi Pujan Diwas was started by the well-wisher of all living beings, Sant Shri Asharamji Bapu, from which the whole world is benefiting today. Over the years, Tulsi Pujan Diwas has gained immense popularity & global acceptance and is being celebrated globally today.

It’s interesting to note that Tulsi puja is observed in foreign countries as well! Not only in India but also in many other countries around the world, Tulsi is considered revered and auspicious. Tulsi plants are widely grown in South Asian households in the UK (United Kingdom). It is a medicinal herb found in 150 different varieties worldwide.

It is well known how beneficial Tulsi proved to be in treatment during the COVID-19 disease. 

French doctor Victor Racine has said: “Tulsi is a wonderful medicine, which is very beneficial in regulation of blood pressure and digestive system, increase in blood cells and mental diseases.” 

Therefore, revered Bapuji’s call for the welfare of the world’s mankind is: “From 25th December to 1st January, organize the Vishwaguru Bharat programs such as Tulsi Puja, Japa Mala Puja, Gau Pujan (worshiping of indigenous Indian cows), Havan, Gau Geeta Ganga Jagriti Yatra, Satsang, etc., so that everyone can experience holistic wellbeing. Do not commit suicide, avoid cow slaughter, refrain from moral degradation of youth, but focus on self-development, protect and develop the Gau and Ganga. Become vibrant and radiant with the presence of Gau, Ganga, Tulsi, and Gita. Recognize your free and great soul through knowledge.” 

According to the ‘Skanda Purana’, “The servants of Yama (the god of Death) do not come to his house in the vicinity of which there is a grove of Tulsi (where that plant is worshipped daily)”. The mere presence of Tulsi protects us from negative vibrations, negative powers, and evil thoughts.

It is mentioned in the ‘Garuda Purana’ (Dharma Kanda – Preta Kalpa: 38.11): “Tulsi burns one’s sins accumulated in former existences on planting it, growing it, watering it, meditating upon it, touching it, and narrating its account.”

Tulsi to Alleviate Poverty

Planting a Tulsi plant in the northeast corner and keeping Ganga water at the place of worship brings prosperity.

“One desirous of removing poverty and attainment of wealth & happiness should circumambulate the Tulsi plant 108 times with implicit faith and devotion on the ‘Tulsi Worship Day’ (25th December) and Somvati Amavasya (No moon day falling on Mondays)”. – Pujya Sant Shri Asharamji Bapu. 

Offering water to Tulsi every day and lighting a lamp with cow ghee enhances happiness and prosperity.


Scientific Facts

Research conducted by scientists of the Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) has proved that Tulsi has antioxidant properties and can make cells damaged by molecular radiation healthy. Tulsi destroys the cell-damaging chemicals produced in the body due to some diseases, poisonous substances, radiation, and smoking. 

According to a study conducted at Tirupati's S.V University, the Tulsi plant releases ozone air in its respiration process, which is especially invigorating. 

The tests conducted by Shri K. M. Jain using a universal scanner, an aura measuring device, revealed that if a person circumambulates Tulsi or a local cow every day, the positive energy in his body increases, significantly reducing the possibility of diseases. If a person circumambulates the Tulsi plant 9 times, the area of influence of his aura increases by an astonishing 3 meters.

A research study on Tulsi was conducted in the King George Medical College, Lucknow. As per that, Tulsi helps in curing of peptic ulcer, heart diseases, hypertension, colitis and asthma. Tulsi has ‘Anti-stress’ activity. Taking herbal tea prepared from Tulsi leaves (without milk) or eating the leaves regularly with good mastication reduces the severity of day to day mental stress.

Strong vital electricity is present in the Tulsi plant, which keeps the air pure and clean in the area of 200 meters radius around it. Traditionally, we put some Tulsi leaves on food items during an eclipse. Our Rishis knew it well that the bio-electric energy present in the Tulsi leaves protects the food substances from the disastrous adverse effect of the sunrays during the eclipse. Moreover, Tulsi leaves are antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral too.

A yellowish green volatile oil present in the Tulsi leaves keeps evaporating in the atmosphere, thereby charging the air with vitality, and vigour. Wherever the breeze blowing through the Tulsi plant moves, it proves salubrious for health.
