Wedding season for Hindu is going to start with the wedding of Tulsi with Lord Vishnu which is starting from 22 November.
What the tradition exactly is?
According to Hindu mythology, Tulsi is regarded as one of the most sacred plants. Tulsi vivah signifies the end of the monsoon and the beginning of the Hindu wedding season. On Tulsi Vivah day, the place is cleaned up and rangolis are drawn in front of Tulsi. Tulsi plant, being treated as the bride is smeared with turmeric and vermilion.
According to belief, that one, who performs this ceremony of giving away Tulsi considering them to be one’s own daughters, gets the credit as making a Kanyadan which is regarded as an extremely meritorious act in pure religion.
