Kamika Ekadasi

Whosoever worships Lord Shri Hari with Tulsi leaves is freed from all implication of sin. Indeed, he lives untouched by sin, as the lotus leaf, although in the water, is untouched by it. Whosoever offers Lord Shri Hari but a single leaf from the sacred Tulsi tree (Ocimum Sanctum) attains as much merit as one who gives away in charity two hundred grams of gold and eight hundred grams of silver.
