It is said that Ganesha used to be disturbed by the texture of his body. Once, he was absorbed in austerity, while Tulsi was passing by there. She was fascinated to see Ganesh ji. Tulsi proposed to marry Ganesh ji. Ganesh ji refused the proposal as Brahmachari. Angered by this, Tulsi cursed them to get married. Because of this curse, Tulsi is not used in the worship of Lord Ganesha.
