Tulasi Glorification – Hari-bhakti-vilasa
“There is no need to perform atonement for a person who wears Tulasī neck beads. Factually, he does not become contaminated at any stage in his life. Śrī Hari resides in the body of a person whose neck and arms are decorated with ornaments made of Tulasī.”
There is no better recipient of charity then a brāhmaṇa. There is no better charity than the gift of a cow. There is no water more sanctified than the water of the Ganges, and there is no better leaf than a tulasī leaf.
In the Vaiśākha-mahātmya section of the Padma Purāṇa it is stated Among all kinds of leaves, tulasī leaves are most dear to Lord Keśava.
“A person who wears Srimati Tulasi Devi neck beads, even if he is impure or sinful, will eventually attain my shelter. There is no doubt about it.”
