Pranam for Tulasi Devi.

Dear Assembled devotees,

I would like to know what is the pranam Mantra of Srimati Tulasi devi.

Is it Vishnu Bhakti or Krishna Bhakti prade devi.....????

Pls lets decide once for all what is the standard?????

Seems lots of confusion still prevailing at least where i am from.

  • Hare Krsna,

    "Krsna Bhakti prade devi" is the standard, on some special cases & some temple follows Vishnu Bhakti.

    Can use any.

    Hare Krishna. PAMHO. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

    As far as i know both can be used. It's your choice. In Mayapur they use Vishnu Bhakti. Some temples use Krishna Bhakti.

    TRANSLATION

    I offer my repeated obeisances unto Vrnda, Srimati Tulasi Devi, who is very dear to Lord Kesava. O goddess, you bestow devotional service to Lord Krsna and possess the highest truth.





    Sri Tulasi Kirtana

    namo namaha tulasi! krishna-preyasi
    radha-krishna-seva pabo ei abhilashi

    je tomara sharana loy, tara vanchha purna hoy
    kripa kori' koro tare brindavana-basi

    mor ei abhilash, bilas kunje dio vas
    nayane heribo sada jugala-rupa-rashi

    ei nivedana dharo, sakhir anugata koro
    seva-adhikara diye koro nija dasi

    dina krishna-dase koy, ei jena mora hoy
    sri-radha-govinda-preme sada jena bhasi

    TRANSLATION

    O Tulasi, beloved of Krsna, I bow before you again and again. My desire is to obtain the service of Sri Sri Radha-Krsna.

    Whoever takes shelter of you has his wishes fulfilled. Bestowing your mercy on him, you make him a resident of Vrndavana.

    My desire is that you will also grant me a residence in the pleasure groves of Sri Vrndavana-dhama. Thus, within my vision I will always behold the beautiful pastimes of Radha and Krsna.

    I beg you to make me a follower of the cowherd damsels of Vraja. Please give me the privilege of devotional service and make me your own maidservant.

    This very fallen and lowly servant of Krsna prays, ''May I always swim in the love of Sri Radha and Govinda.

    Sri Tulasi Pradaksina Mantra

    yani kani cha papani
    brahma-hatyadikani cha
    tani tani pranashyanti
    pradakshinaha pade pade

    yani kani--whatever; ca--and; papani--sins; brahma-hatya--killing of a brahmana; adikani--and so on; ca--also, tani tani--all of them; pranasyanti--are destroyed; pradaksinah--(by) the circumambulation (of Tulasi Devi); pade pade--at every step.

    By the circumambulation of Srimati Tulasi Devi all the sins that one may have committed are destroyed at every step, even the sin of killing a brahmana.

    Vrnda devi is a pure devotee of Lord Krsna and is responsible for setting up the wonderful pastimes of Radha and Krsna in Vrndavana. She exists as Tulasi to benefit the fallen conditioned souls by bestowing devotional service to Krsna.

    your servant
