The more we come out and do good to others, the more our hearts will be purified, and God will be in them.

Sri Tulasi Kirtana

namo namaha tulasi! krishna-preyasi
radha-krishna-seva pabo ei abhilashi

je tomara sharana loy, tara vanchha purna hoy
kripa kori' koro tare brindavana-basi

mor ei abhilash, bilas kunje dio vas
nayane heribo sada jugala-rupa-rashi

ei nivedana dharo, sakhir anugata koro
seva-adhikara diye koro nija dasi

dina krishna-dase koy, ei jena mora hoy
sri-radha-govinda-preme sada jena bhasi

 

TRANSLATION

O Tulasi, beloved of Krsna, I bow before you again and again. My desire is to obtain the service of Sri Sri Radha-Krsna.

Whoever takes shelter of you has his wishes fulfilled. Bestowing your mercy on him, you make him a resident of Vrndavana.

My desire is that you will also grant me a residence in the pleasure groves of Sri Vrndavana-dhama. Thus, within my vision I will always behold the beautiful pastimes of Radha and Krsna.

I beg you to make me a follower of the cowherd damsels of Vraja. Please give me the privilege of devotional service and make me your own maidservant.

This very fallen and lowly servant of Krsna prays, ''May I always swim in the love of Sri Radha and Govinda.

Sri Tulasi Pradaksina Mantra

yani kani cha papani
brahma-hatyadikani cha
tani tani pranashyanti
pradakshinaha pade pade

 

TRANSLATION

yani kani--whatever; ca--and; papani--sins; brahma-hatya--killing of a brahmana; adikani--and so on; ca--also, tani tani--all of them; pranasyanti--are destroyed; pradaksinah--(by) the circumambulation (of Tulasi Devi); pade pade--at every step.

By the circumambulation of Srimati Tulasi Devi all the sins that one may have committed are destroyed at every step, even the sin of killing a brahmana.

Vrnda devi is a pure devotee of Lord Krsna and is responsible for setting up the wonderful pastimes of Radha and Krsna in Vrndavana. She exists as Tulasi to benefit the fallen conditioned souls by bestowing devotional service to Krsna.
