Other Interesting Notes: “Basil” means KING. Holy Basil is revered and worshipped in India. It is common for Hindu families to plant holy basil outside the home believing it will bring peace to the residents. Tulsi is mentioned in the ancient scriptures of India. Padmurana (24.2) Lord Shiva tells the sage Narada: “Oh, Narada, wherever Tulsi grows there is no misery. She is the holiest of holy. Wherever the breeze blows her fragrance there is purity. Vishnu showers his blessings on those who worship and grow Tulsi. Tulsi is sacred because Brahma resides in the roots, Vishnu resides in the stems, and leaves and Rudra resides in the flowering tops.”
