Once in Prabhāsatīrtha (Prabhasatirtha; the pilgrimage site called Prabhasa) God Brahma, Mahādeva (Mahadeva) with Pārvati(Parvati), Nārāyaṇa (Narayana) with Lakṣmī (Lakshmi), other gods, and the followers of Śiva (Siva)– all assembled together and experienced a state of bliss, seeing each other. At this time, Laṣmī and Pārvatī got an idea that they would worship Bhagavān (Bhagavan, salutation of the Deity) Śankara (Sankara, Siva) and Nārāyaṇa (Narayana) with svakalpita dravya, that is, things created by themselves. Then, amala ānandāśru (amala anandasru; pure tears of bliss) from the eyes of the two goddess trickled down to the ground. From these amala (pure) tear-drops, emerged the holy āmalakī (amalaki) tree, and its fruit is also called āmalakī, derived from amala (pure,pristine). All the qualities of tulasī (tulasi; basil plant) and bilva (bel tree) are present in this tree as well. On śuklā ekādaśī (sukla ekadasi, the 11th day after the full-moon according to the lunar calender) of the month of Māgha (Magha), both Hari and Hara are worshiped with the leaves of this holy tree, regarded as a combined manifestation of both.
