Domestic & Sacred—The Tulsi is_the most sacred plant in the Hindu religion; it is consequently found in or near almost every Hindu house throughout India. Hindu poets say that it protects from misfortune and sanctifies and guides to heaven all who cultivate it. The Brahmins hold it sacred to the gods Krishna and Vishnu. The story goes that this plant is the transformed nymph Tulasi, beloved of Krishna, an for this reason near every Hindu house it is cultivated in pots or on brick or earthen pillars with hollows at the top in which earth is deposited; it is daily watered and worshipped by all the members of the family. Under favourable circumstances, it grows to a considerable Size, and furnishes a woody stem large enough to make beads from for the rosaries used by Hindus on which they count the number of recitations of their deities name.
