Shree Shaligram Ji Suno Binti Hamari
Vrinda loved Jalandhar very dearly and was a devoted wife. Her devotion, loyalty and chastity made Jalandhar invincible. The demi Gods went praying to Lord Vishnu and Shiva for help. Shiva knew that he could never defeat Jalandhar because he was a part of Shiva himself. She was a dedicated and staunch devotee of Lord Vishnu and prayed to him with all her faith. Lord Vishnu disguised himself as Jalandhar and stood in front of Vrinda. Vrinda could not recognise Lord Vishnu and thought Jalandhar had returned. She ran into his arms and soon realised that it was not Jalandhar. Her chastity was maligned and the protection of Jalandhar was destroyed. As a result Lord Shiva killed Jalandhar in no time. Vrinda asked Lord Vishnu to show his real form. She was shattered to see that she was tricked by her own Lord.
Seeing Lord Vishnu disguising as Jalandhar and tricking her to break her chastity, Vrinda cursed Lord Vishnu. She gave the curse that Lord Vishnu would turn into a stone. Lord Vishnu accepted the curse and he turned into the Shaligram stone. Vrinda was also heart broken and decided to end her life. Lord Vishnu accepted the curse as he felt guilty of betraying his greatest devotee. So, he gave Vrinda a boon that from her ashes the plant of Tulsi would be born and the plant would get married to the Shaligram stone. This way her chastity would not be maligned and she would stay with Lord Vishnu forever. Vishnu also said that he would never accept food without Tulsi and therefore Vishnu's prasadam is always offered with a leaf of Tulsi in it.
