Sri Thulasi Mahima

yenmoole sarvatheerthaani
yenmadhye sarvadevatha
yadagre sarva vedaashcha
thulasee thvam namamyaham.

My salutations to Goddess Thulasi in whose root all the holy rivers reside, in whose stem all Devatas reside and in whose leaves all the Vedas reside.

In the incident of Thulabaram in Bhagavatham, Thulasi is placed on par with Lord Krishna highlighting its sacred nature. The energy contained in Thulasi purifies the air and invokes good spirits.

“No disease visits the house that has a cow and Thulasi at its doorstep.”

By a simple act or ritual of praying to Thulasi, we bring in reverence of plant life into our lives. Developing such a relationship with plants, will make us prudent and judicious when it comes to destroying even a single plant or a tree. Respecting one form of life means respecting every form and also one self.

We have converted the courtyard right at the main entrance of our building, into a small Thualsi vanam and it is our Vrindavan. Vrindavan is our endeavor to create an awareness about the importance of Thulasi in our children.

Chettinad Hari Shree Vidyalayam is thankful to Parampara for helping us create the beautiful Vrindavan.
