TULASI is the Hindu Goddess of loyalty. She was once a woman named Vrinda, who was married to a man of low caste named Jalandhar. Vrinda was so devoted to her husband that he became stronger for it and could not be defeated in battle. One day, the God Vishnu took on the form of Vrinda's husband Jalandhar and tricked her into sleeping with him. Jalandhar lost his great strength and was subsequently killed, and Vrinda threw herself onto his funeral pyre. Vishnu, sorry for what he had done, turned Vrinda into the tulsi plant, a type of basil, and she became the Goddess Tulasi. The plant is considered to be very sacred, and there are certain rituals that must be used to take leaves from it. Tulasi's name means "the incomparable one," and other names, including those from her 108 name hymn, include the following:
