This book consists mostly of the old Iskcon Tulasi (possibly going back to the early 1970s) that we used to have at the temples long ago. It was the first compilation of instructions that most temples had about Tulasi. I had collected a lot of these kinds of books and information, so I pulled my copy out, typed it up, along with doing some editing and rearrangement for ease of use, then added the additional research on who is Tulasi and some of her main pastimes from various Vedic texts. That is how this edition came together. Many devotees are most grateful for what has been done. It is a very descriptive and instructive booklet on the ways to take care of Tulasi, and this will help preserve some of the early knowledge and information on growing Tulasi that we had from years ago. Additional information and experience may be available now, but there is nothing like reviewing the original ways we used to do things. It was very successful at the time, and this will provide many ways to be successful in growing Tulasi today. However, new knowledge and information about caring for Tulasi should also be viewed, but something like this is better than nothing.
So this booklet will certainly help all who have Tulasi plants, or hope to have them in the future, and provide greater success in caring for her, and increase appreciation for the sacred nature of the Tulasi tree.
I am very glad to learn that Srimati Tulasi-devi has favored you so much. If you actually grow this Tulasi plant, and I am sure you will do it, then you must know it for certain that your devotion for Krishna is testified. I was very much anxious to introduce this worship of Tulasi plant amongst our Society members, but it has not become successful till now. Therefore, when I hear that you have got this opportunity, my pleasure does not have any bounds.
