Rangoli Done before puja on Diwali Evening.
SrIpAdarAya, perhaps the founder of the karNATaka system of music, composed a song bhUshaNake bhUshaNa. In it he mentions aalayake bhUshaNa tulasi bRndAvana (tulasi bRMdAvana is the ornament for a temple). You may hear this song at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WV_LaxgK-qM . purandaradAsa too wrote a song ollanO hari koLLanO ella sAdhanaviddu tuLasi illada pUje (SrI hari will not accept worship without tuLasi even if all other elements are present). You may listen to this song at http://www.musicindiaonline.com/list_albums/i/99-Kannada_Devotional/1096... . I have drawn a two line chikku kOlam of a tulasIbRndAvana for all ladies on the forum, particularly for two whose names begin with the letter l. One is very fond of tulasi mADam and the other draws so many colourful rangOlis before tulasi Enjoy!
