On Ekadashi, worshipping GoddessTulsi and Lord Shaligram brings an end to marital problems. Relationships of those who are not married get finalized soon. Tulsi Vivah gives you the punayas equivalent to Kanyadaan.
Dev Uthani Ekadashi is another name for Kartik Shukla Ekadashi. Lord Vishnu wakes up from his eternal sleep on this day. Along with them, all the gods wakes up from yoga sleep. On this day, Lord Vishnu is worshipped to seek his blessings. The marriage of Lord Shaligram and Tulsi is done on this auspicious day. Manglik functions such as marriage, mundan, and upanayan rites begin from this day onwards.
On this day, women normally fast for the entire day, breaking it in the evening after performing the puja.
To begin, the Tulsi plant is watered, and an idol of Lord Vishnu is cleaned and garlanded with flowers and garlands. The Tulsi plant is adorned in the style of a bride. A red cloth is wrapped around her, and bangles, jewellery, and a bindi are placed near it. The Holy Tulsi and Lord Vishnu are then connected by a thread.
Aarti is performed after the offering of fruit and flowers. People rain flowers and rice on the couple at the end of the service, and prasad is distributed among the attendees.
Tulsi Vivah is observed on the 12th day of the Hindu lunar cycle, or Dwadashi, in the month of Karthik during the Shukla Paksha. This puja is typically performed in the months of October or November, following Diwali.
