Thanks a lot for your prompt answer for my previous question about yajnopaveetham for my husband. Since I have been taught about daily pooja by women, I do it regularly. Also, I was told that tulsi leaves are to be plucked only by men and not women. Is it so? I face this problem since when my husband is away on job commitments there is nobody to pluck it. Can you please guide me?

The commonly known Tulsi is very powerful and a too sensitive plant. It is known as Sacred Basil or Holy Basil in English and the Botonical Latin name is : Osimun Basilicum. You just cannot describe its values in terms as of any other ordinary plant.. It has highest medicinal values in addition to its devine in nature. Lord Sri Mahavishnu is called "Tulasi Priya". Because of its sensitivity in nature, it is advised, it is not plucked by women in general, or atleast during their mensus course. This might cause the plant to get dried sooner. Iit should not be plucked before or after sun rise & set. It should be plucked without using the nails before 12 noon. And one should do soonly after cleansing their body & mind. Before doing so, a prayer must be offered daily which is in Sanskrit – I roughly give in phonetic English : "Vrindaayai Thulasee Devyai, Priyaayai Kesavyasya Cha, Kesavaarthe sinomi Dhwaam Varadhaa bhava sarvatha:"
