Holy Basil is an integral part in the Hindu worship of Vishnu, Krishna and Ram as well as other deities such as Hanuman, Balarama and Garuda. Holy Basil rosaries are considered to be auspicious for the wearer, and believed to put them under the protection of Hanuman. They have such a strong association with Vaishnavas, that followers of Hanuman are known as “those who bear the Holy Basil round the neck”
