Why Tulsi leaf should never offer to ganesha?

According to legend, the daughter of Dharmatmjya Tulsi departed on the pilgrimage with the desire of marriage. Goddess Tulsi travelled to all the pilgrimages and reached on the banks of the Ganga. Here she saw the young Ganesh on the Ganges coast, he was in deep Tapasya. 

Shree Ganesh was looking stunning as he had applied sandalwood paste on all his organs, he was wearing gems of gold and gemstones with pariwar flowers, were gripping on the throne. He had wrapped a very soft silk pamatabar in his waist. 

But then you will be giving life and salvation to the world in Kali-Yuga as you are dear to Lord Vishnu and Lord Krishna. But Tulsi plating will not be considered auspicious in my Ganesha’s worship.


Ganpati Ji looked so beautiful that anyone would be fascinated by him and happened with TulsiJi.  As soon as TulsiJi saw Ganesh, she was fascinated by seeing the beauty of his appearance and the desire tomarry with Ganesh awakened. Due to Tulsi Ji, Ganesh Ji was distracted from his tapsya. 

Shri Ganesh said that Tulsiji was inauspicious to dissolve the distinction and after knowing the intention of her, he declared himself as a Brahmachari and rejected her marriage proposal.

As her marriage proposal by Shri Ganesh, the goddess Tulsi was very sad and cursed with two marriages to Shri Ganesha. On this, Shri Ganesh also cursed her that your marriage will be from an Asura.

Tulsi apologised to Shri Ganesh after hearing the curse of being a monster’s wife. Then Shri Ganesh told her that your marriage will be from the narrow monster.
