Holy Basil in Ayurveda:

In Ayurveda Holy Basil or Tulasi is known as "The Incomparable One", "The Mother Medicine of Nature", and "The Queen of Herbs". In Ayurvedic texts written between 500BC and 1200 AD there are numerous references to Tulasi. The Padma purana and the Tulsi Kavacham describe Tulsi as a protector of life, accompanying the human being from birth up till death (Dymock et al , 1893). The Pauranic mythology calls Tulsi Vishnu Priya , "Beloved of Lord Vishnu" . In the Bhagavata and Mahabharata (ancient holy epics and scriptures), it is described how Tulsi, a goddess and devotee of Lord Vishnu, was ultimately re-incarnated as the plant Tulsi. It is said that in order to express her devotion to her beloved Lord, she took this form as a herb which would be offered in worship and service to Him (Garg, 1982).
