Shree Tulsee Jananee Devee
Shree Hari Priya Vallabe Namo Namah
Anyone while worshiping Tulasi-devi chants these eight names will get the same results as one who performs the Ashvamedha sacrifice. And one who on the full-moon day of Kartika (Tulasi-devi's appearance day) worships Her with this Mantra will break free from the bonds of this miserable world of birth and death, and very quickly attains Goloka Vrndavan. On the full moon-day of Kartik Lord Sri Krishna Himself worships Srimati Tulasi-devi with this Mantra.
Tulsi Pranaama Mantra:
priyāyai keśavasya ca
satyavatai namo namaḥ
"I offer my repeated obeisances unto Vṛndā, Śrīmatī Tulasī Devi, who is very dear to Lord Keśava. O goddess, you bestow devotional service to Kṛṣṇa and you possess the highest truth."
MANTRA FOR PICKING TULSI LEAVES AND MANJARI:
tulasy amṛta-janmāsī sadā tvam keśava-priyā
keśavārtham cinomi tvām varadā bhava śobhana
"O Tulasī, you are born from nectar. You are always very dear to Lord Keśava.. Now, in order to worship Lord Keśava, I am collecting your leaves and mañjarīs. Please bestow your benediction on me to serve the Lord."
*Use right hand and It is best to remove only the older leaves near the stem, especially those she is about to release and which can be taken with a slight pull. Do not remove many leaves from a small plant, or she will suffer. All her leaves are offerable for worship, even dry, brown leaves. In an emergency, one may even offer pieces of her wood.
One can also circumbulate tulsi which burns up karma.
