Often she walked to the banks of the holy river the Ganges and worshipped in the temple of Lord Vishnu, located nearby. One day, her eyes fell on a handsome youth sitting in the deep meditation, who was Lord Ganesha. The aura around him attracted the Tulsi and she approached him, confessed her love, and asked him to marry her. However, Lord Ganesha politely refused the proposal which left Tulsi in anger.

Feeling insulted, she cursed him that one day he will have to get married against his wish. In return, God also cursed Tulsi that in future she too will get married to a demon. On hearing this, she realized her fault and felt guilty. Lord Ganesha apologized to her and twisted the curse that she will get reprieved of the curse by the blessings of Lord Vishnu and turned into a holy plant. At the same time, he mentioned, that the leaves of that holy plant will remain unacceptable in his worships and shall always remain distant from Him.
