A little more information: The Indian Tulsi (Ocimum tenuiflorum) is the said to be the most revered plant in modern Hinduism and is integral part of the Vaishnava traditions throughout the Indian subcontinent. Puranic views (which were recorded between 1500 – c. 500 BCE) regarding the origin of the Tulsi plant tend to differ somewhat. The general theme is that the plant is personified as a woman who is a great devotee of the all-pervasive Lord Viṣṇu (named Vr̥ndā or Mādhavī, depending on the source) prior to being turned into a plant. It is important to look at the traditional perspective when considering such a sacred plant but the scientific view should also be examined. Puranic literature suggest that Tulsi was initially a single plant. Recent research at the University of Punjab has shed light on the evolutionary history of Ocimum tenuiflorum which provides interesting clues as to the origin of this sacred plant as well as its distinctness from other basil varieties outside of India. Haplogroups support the species to be a monophyletic clade that has undergone a surprisingly low rate of evolution. This may further hint to human involvement including early cultivation, agricultural practices, and spread of genetics between regions. Analyses of such haplogroup studies of culturally relevant plants of the Indian subcontinent may be able to give insight into the advancement of botany and agriculture in ancient Indic civilisations.
