Flowers & Tulasi

Wish you all a very Happy Shravana Masa and a wonderful and Joyous festive season. It has been raining non-stop for the past few days, and it also has been raining lots of Jasmine, Kanakambara and Tualsi at my place.

I just offer flowers and tulasi as is on week days, and try to make garlands on weekends and if possible on Thursdays. Today being Bheemana Amavasya I decided to spend some of my time and make three garlands –  Jasmine and Tulasi for our Beloved Rayaru, Jasmine and Kanakambara for Goddess Lakshmi, and Just Jasmine for Lord Srinivasa or Venkateshawara. In spite of these three garlands there was still lots of flowers left which I offered as is.

Take a look at the amazing flowers and tulasi. All grown in our house.

    Wow! Such a beautiful sight. I am sure the supreme Lord, the kind Goddess and our beloved Guru Rayaru were very happy with u
    your unconditional devotion. It reminds me of a Devara Naama by Purandara Dasaru ‘Hoova taruvara manege hulla taruva. Avva lakumi ramana ivagilla garuva ‘😊,

    Did you get seeds for these plants in the US itself? Could I ask how you take care of these plants in the winter? Thanks a lot for posting these lovely pictures.

      Thanks, Swetha. Yes, everything is from USA. We bring the plants inside during winter, including jasmine, trim them to the bare minimum and keep them dormant. Take out all seeds from Tulasi and store it, and plant them every year.

        Thanks a lot for the tips ,Ma’am. We live in Minnesota 😬. So hope our plants survive the winter.

        So we should harvest existing leaves from Tulasi plant and take out the seeds and store them?

        Yes, remove the seeds and store as soon as they dry.

  4. Very nice.


  5. You have made super garland to decorate our Guru, Lakshmi and Sri Venketeswara.
    It looks so beautiful. Our Guru and all will bless you for making and decorating themselves and he will also bless us since you have made an opportunity to see that.
