TULSI PLANT LEAVES - Superior to all other leaves

Once, Śrī Kṛṣṇa visited Kurukṣetra at the time of the solar eclipse with His 16,108 queens and all the Dvārakā vasīs.

After taking bath for the last time at the end of the eclipse, Śrī Kṛṣṇa’s dear Satyabhāmā wanted to weigh Kṛṣṇa on a scale against a heap of gold and then give that gold to Śrī Nārada in charity.

Srī Kṛṣṇa sat on one pan of the scale and Satyabhāmā put all her gold ornaments on the other pan. After that, His other queens put all their ornaments on the pan, and then more and more golden pots were added, but the pan with the gold was still far too light.

The queens did not know what to do, but by Śrī Nārada’s inspiration they surrendered to Vṛndāvaneśvari Śrīmatī Rādhikā. Śrīmatī Rādhikā removed the pile of gold from the pan and replaced it with one tulasī leaf dipped in Her tears.

No sooner had She done that than Kṛṣṇa’s pan lifted and the pan with the tulasī leaf sank down and touched the ground. Everyone was struck with wonder to see the glories of this one tulasī leaf.

In this way we see that the leaves and mañjarīs of tulasī are superior to all other leaves and flowers. There is no doubt of this conclusion.
