Why Is Tulsi Leaf Added In Food Items During Surya Grahan?
There is a popular belief that with a mere sight of Tulsi plant every day, one can get rid of all sins and problems. Happiness and prosperity begin to reside in the house where Tulsi plant is in good condition. It is said that the effect of negative forces on the earth increases during the time of eclipse and therefore, in such a situation, by keeping a Tulsi plant, you can regain the purity of the house. It is also believed that along with negativity, Tulsi also prevents the effects of evil forces.
Add Tulsi in the food before the eclipse, it is believed that due to the effect of the eclipse, the food items kept in the house get contaminated and if one consumes them, it can be injurious to health. In such a situation, it is advised to keep basil leaves in the food items before the eclipse. Tulsi has many medicinal properties and it also contains mercury which eliminates the effect of ultraviolet rays emitted during an eclipse. Tulsi also removes many types of health problems. Using Tulsi at the time of eclipse helps in keeping all the food items safe and maintains their purity.
Use basil in other works also, put basil leaves in bathing water. After the eclipse is over, all the family members must take a bath with that water. Clean the house and establish purity by sprinkling Tulsi water. It will also help to free the atmosphere of the house from the effect of eclipse. There is a strong belief that by using Tulsi after the eclipse, happiness, prosperity and positivity will remain in the house.
