Shreemati Tulasi-Devi, Very Dear to Bhagavan Shree Hari, originated from the drops of nectar for the sake of Shree (श्री - Shreemati MahaLakshmi-Devi).                       

249.03a. While Shreemati MahaLakshmi-Devi Was Drinking the exquisite beverage Shreemati Tulasi-Devi originated. Shreemati Tulasi-Devi destroys the sins of all living beings.

The Ocean-Born One (सागरसंभवा - sAgarasaMbhavA) Resides in The Stem of Shreemati Tulasi-Devi.

A person who eats Tulasi plant never goes to the world of Yama.

249.07. He on whose head there is Tulasi Leaf is not assailed by Yama’s men. 

Shreemati Tulasi-Devi grants the status of salvation on a person who has Tulasi Leaf in his mouth.

249.08. He who has Tulasi Plant in his hand is rid of the three types of distress. 

If Tulasi Plant is in the chest (heart) of living beings, Shreemati Tulasi-Devi grants all desires.

On coming to know that Bhagavan Shree Narayana resides in the water as well as on Ashvattha Tree (आश्वत्थ - Azvattha), Shreemati MahaLakshmi-Devi Resorted to The Plant of Shreemati Tulasi-Devi out of compassion for all living beings.

At the advent of Caturmasya, if Shreemati Tulasi-Devi is resorted to by bhaktas of Bhagavan Shree Vishnu, 1000 of their sins are destroyed into 1000 shatters. 
                                              
Remembering Lord Govinda always, resorting to A Park of Tulasi Plants, sprinkling Tulasi Plants with milk is rare during Chaturmasya. 

If a man worships Tulasi Plant with Bhakti (Faith) and waters Tulasi Plant by filling a basin made round its roots all his/her family is sanctified.

Shreemati MahaLakshmi-Devi, The Granter of Wealth Is Stationed in Shreemati Tulasi-Devi, so the wealth of the worshipper increases too. 

Whether a religious student, or a householder or a forest hermit or an ascetic or all types of Prakrtis (castes and subcastes) if they are engaged in serving Shreemati Tulasi-Devi with Bhakti (Faith), then Bhagavan Shree Hari will ward off their miseries.

249.19. Bhagavan Shree Hari pervades all the plants. The Form of Bhagavan Shree Hari is to be meditated upon as permeated by various Rasas (juices). 

So also, Shreemati Kamala-Devi, The MahaIshvari, Who took up The Residence in Tulasi Plants is to be Remembered and Worshipped always.

New online text-editor, which can be modified in Krishna-Bhakti-Interfaced Text Editor (http://www.typwrittr.com/)

This is how my interface in www.typwrittr.com looks, see Hi-Resolution Image at box, dropbox, minus



What makes this text editor falling apart from other clones is that you can upload your own backgrounds from image-hosting sites.

does not have the capacity to store the images, so I store all my backgrounds at 

Once you are at min.us you will need the image with direct link (usually, the direct link is very easy to recognize as having ".jpeg" or ".png" postfix), see the example below:

The background picture with Shreemati Lakshmi-Devi, Bhagavan Shree Vishnu, Lord Krishna and Bhagavan Shree Hayagriva along with the blue-striped ambience had been created by me in Photoshop in 10 minutes and it was worth of it, as it is very inspiring for the Articles, dedicated to Lord Krishna. 

As you see some Images had been cut into circles with "Shadow" and "Bevel and Emboss" applied to the layers. 

The blue grunge background with diagonal stripes had been taken from http://all-free-download.com/photoshop-patterns/

So, as you see this primitive textpad can be transformed in the very inspiring and visually advanced text editor with just one "Background Image" feature and good Photoshop skills.
