It is regarded as the best to worship Lord Vishnu, Ram and Krishna and also used for the purification of the body. Tulsi wood, which is in the family of basil, is the most sacred of all wood in the Hindu tradition. It is worshipped in Indian temples as a living goddess. One Hindu legend relates that Vishnu spawned Tulsi from the turbulent seas in order to help all mankind. According to popular Indian belief, Wherever Tulsi is planted, the place becomes, sanctified as a place of pilgrimage and the sepoys of Lord Death dare not enter that place. In India, the Tulsi is regarded as the most sacred plant.
