Product Description

With all of the amazing properties of tulsi (holy basil) reported by the ancient Ayurvedic texts, you might be tempted to have lots of it all the time.

However, tulsi is quite heating. For most of us in this pitta-predominant, Western culture, the ushna (hot thermogenic property) of tulsi is too much. We need a way to get the divine vibration of tulsi without the heating quality.

In addition, the sensitive nature of tulsi makes it susceptible to damage if exposed to harsh toxins in the liver. In this modern era, high toxicity in the liver is as common as divorce (in fact, the two may be related!). To get the benefit of tulsi, there must be a way to avoid processing the herb in the liver.

Vaidya Mishra's Transdermal Cream Delivers

Vaidya Mishra recognized these problems for the Western physiology and developed an alternative delivery system, called the Transdermal Marma System. This system in brief, uses creams like Tulsi Transdermal Cream to deliver only the vibration and subtlest essence (sukshma bhag) of the herb through the skin.

By placing the cream on specific marma points (energy points) of the body, you can deliver the healing properties of the herb directly to the organ or system in need.

And because there is no physical herb in the cream (only the herb's vibration), it does not require processing by the liver or digestive system. The results are much faster, and there is no risk of damaging the herb's delicate vibration in the toxic liver.

In addition, the heating quality of tulsi is only very minimally present in the transdermal cream, as compared to the crude herb. This allows people with high pitta to take advantage of the spiritually stimulating nature of tulsi without getting overheated by its physical properties.

Tulsi Supports Balanced Use of the Senses

The senses are compared to horses in Ayurveda, which pull the carriage of your life. When they are calm and collected, you can direct them where you like and can enjoy their power working for you. When they are out of control, they become wild and can easily put the carriage in the ditch.

The problem of the horses does not lie in the horses themselves. It has to do with the driver of the horses. In the body, the horses are the senses and the driver is the mind. When the mind is strong, it keeps the horses well watered and fed, all the while directing them where it wants to go.

Strength of mind (sattwa) is required to do this. Laziness (tamas) simply allows the horses to do what they want. And too much drive (rajas) pushes the horses beyond their capacity, or denys them what they need causing them to rebel.

Tulsi increases sattwa (the pure light of the soul). Because tulsi is full of sattwa, it awakens this value in our own heart. This light of consciousness then spreads through the heart to the mind, giving it great strength and foresight.

When the mind is full of sattwa (it is connected to the light of the gem, or soul), then the horses (senses) do not get out of control. The mind quietly governs the senses and uses them for steady progress in life.

Tulsi Is Great For Meditation

When the mind is governed by the senses, i.e. the mind is weak, meditation is not charming. The senses constantly draw the mind outwards, and the weak mind helplessly tries to settle the mind inwards. This fight between senses and mind causes tension and blocks good experience in meditation.

Tulsi Transdermal Cream is a useful tool to apply just before meditation. The sattwa of tulsi helps connect the mind to the light of the soul, giving it strength. And when the mind is strong, the senses have no choice but to follow the mind's lead to settle down in meditation.

This is why Tulsi Transdermal Cream is included in Vaidya Mishra's Samadhi Set and Super Samadhi Set Gift Basket to be used before meditation. Tulsi, brahmi and arjuna (or ashoka) creams are all included in the Samadhi Set. This gives maximum herbal support for a relaxing, refreshing and clear experience in meditation.

Tulsi In Our Herbal Products

Tulsi Herbal Memory Nectar

  • Contains only the subtlest essence of the tulsi (the herbal memory).
  • Bypasses the liver, which may be in poor shape due to modern lifestyle, and delivers the prabhavas (special qualities) of tulsi directly to the tissues. If the liver is full of toxins, the divine quality of tulsi will be destroyed when it passes through the liver. This is not the case with this herbal memory nectar, which does not go through the liver.
  • Does not heat the body like tulsi normally does.
