Making of an authentic Tulsi Kanthi-Vrindavan

The making of Tulsi Kanthi: At BanshiVat, Vrindavan.

tulsi kanthi - Comp

Dear old Dadi. She spends all her free time making tulsi malas. She buys the Tulsi sticks, and cuts each ‘bead’ herself to make the kanthis. it is a very rare way of making Tulsi malas. There maybe very few places or people left today who do this whole process entirely by hand. It is a dying skill, as it is very laborious and painstakingly slow.

I would urge all Vaishnavs to go buy some from her, as she is a very pure soul from a very pure place.

Every visit to this place, BanshiVat, is not complete without a hug and a photo with Dadi, who has spent her entire life looking after this place.


BanshiVat is her ancestors’ property. She always has many divine anubhuties to share with us on every visit.
