Tulsi Poojana

Tulsi Poojana

Tulsi Poojana

The tulsi (holy basil) occupies pride of place in the Indian home and hearth. Usually positioned under the open sky, nourished by sun and rain, it is an integral part of the daily poojana (ritual worship) of Indian homes. The painting that you see on this page depicts a lady stepping out onto the terrace of her home one early morning. Having emerged fresh from her bath, she picks up the poojana kalasha and thalee in her gentle hands and steps out into the sun towards the tulsi to make an offering.

She is clad in a fresh saree of ivory-coloured silk, so new the creases are still intact. Zoom in on the endpiece that she has drawn down the front, lifelike folds painted with bold monotone brushstrokes. A thick brocade of gold defines the border, which is embroidered with a single thread of green. Ample gold ornaments on her person, studded with rubies and emeralds; these are indicative of her status as probably the eldest daughter-in-law. Such is the glow on her face that, in her ivory saree and gold jewellery, she is the very image of Devi Sarasvati.

Thick green vine frames the door behind her. In the background, one could see the quarters of the ground floor of her home. A quiet courtyard opens out before it, in keeping with the pre-independence architecture of the homes of the upper classes in India. Into the distance, a gorgeous palette of soft greens and yellows defines the Ganges as She reflects the glamorous rays of the early morning sun.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
Thank you for your wonderful service and amazing book selection. We are long time customers and have never been disappointed by your great store. Thank you and we will continue to shop at your store
