The legend behind Tulsi Vivah and its rites are told in the scripture, Padma Purana. She was an incarnation of the Goddess Lakshmi. She was married to the Asura king Shankchur, who due to her piety and devotion to Vishnu, became invincible. Even Shiva could not defeat Shankchur, so he requested Vishnu - the preserver in the Trinity - to find a solution.

Using tulasi leaves in worship will bring prosperity. Tulasi plant is considered as the holiest of all plants. In English it is called as Basil plant. The Tulasi plant is regarded as a threshold point between heaven and earth.
A traditional prayer tells that the creator-God. A house with a Tulasi plant is sometimes considered a place of pilgrimage also. Tulasi is the Hindu Goddess of loyalty. She was once a woman by named Vrinda, who was married to a man of low caste named Jalandhar. Vrinda was so devoted to her husband that he became stronger because of that and could not be defeated in any battle.
Jalandhar lost his great strength and was subsequently killed by the God, and Vrinda threw herself onto his funeral pyre. Vishnu, felt sorry for what he had done, and turned Vrinda into the Tulasi plant, a type of basil, and she became the Goddess Tulasi.
The plant is considered to be very sacred, and there are certain rituals that must be used to take leaves from it. A ceremony known as Tulasi Vivah is performed by the Hindus,usually on the eleventh or the twelfth lunar day.
It is the ceremonial wedding of the Tulasi plant to Vishnu, in the form of his image, Shaligram or a Krishna or Rama image. Both the bride and the groom are ritually worshipped and then married as per tradition. As a Hindu it is our responsibility to have a Tulasi plant at home.
