Guru Maharaj: Interesting question! We tend to offer a very short and limited arati with incense, lamp and flower. I don’t know if there is any particular instruction against, but generally we offer this very simplified arati to Tulasi. In Vrinda Kunda there is a deity of Vrinda devi, Tulasi. So in Vrinda Kunda for Vrinda devi they offer chamara and all that. It is just that for Tulasi plant we have a very simplified puja. Just like for Lord Nrsimhadeva, we do not offer all the articles.
