Basil for Business

Many Hindu families keep a tulsi or Holy Basil
plant in a specially-built structure, which has
images of deities installed on all four sides,
with an alcove for a small earthenware oil
lamp. Here basil is used very simply to enhance
business matters. Just how widely it is used
throughout the world is shown by the use of
the second technique, which is said to ensure
that you will always be prosperous. This latter
technique owes a great deal to voodoo and the
technique of floor washing.

✤ Place the pot and plants where they can be
safely left.
✤ Carefully nurture the seeds to maturity.
✤ Whenever practical, light the oil lamp and
keep it burning. This action honours the
goddess Tulsi who fell in love with Krishna
and calls upon her beneficence.
