In the morning, after maṅgala-āratī (and preferably also in the evening, before sandhyā-āratī)all the assembled devotees should attend tulasīworship and circumambulate Śrīmatī Tulasī-devī. First we offer obeisances to Tulasī-devī with the tulasī-praṇāma-mantra, chanted three times: 

(oṁ) vṛndāyai tulasī-devyai priyāyai keśavasya ca
kṛṣṇa-bhakti-prade devi satyavatyai namo namaḥ
I offer my repeated obeisances unto Vṛndā, Śrīmatī Tulasī-devī, who is very dear to Lord Keśava. O goddess, you bestow devotional service to Kṛṣṇa and you possess the highest truth.
Then we sing the tulasī-pūjā-kīrtana while one devotee offers āratī to Tulasī-devi with incense, a ghee lamp and flowers. While offering the articles, the devotee offering tulasī-āratī should stand on a mat and ring a bell with his left hand. Each of the items may be distributed to the assembled devotees after they have been offered to Tulasī-devī.
