In rural areas, people sprinkle Gomutra and dung in front of the house and wash them thoroughly. It is said to purify all the negative energies from the surrounding place. However, in cities, people just clean the home and begin the puja. Usually the tulsi plant is kept in a pot and the pot is decorated with flowers. People also paint the pot in white colour and bright colours on top of it and make it attractive. Rangoli is drawn around the pot in various colours. Later, the Tulsi Devi is invoked into the pot and worshipped by chanting the Sri Krishna mantras. It is said that Lord Krishna lives in the Tulsi plant and this is the reason for the plant to attain a high status in our culture. People perform puja and offer various rituals including a particular arati. They also light lamps and incense sticks around the pot in the evening and sing bhajans. The devotees who visit the house are given prasad after the puja. The Tulsi plant is very significant even from the scientific point of view and there are many medicinal uses of this plant. It is believed that putting tulsi leaves in a pot of water will purify the water and you can see this in many temples across the country.
