Legend says that Tulsidas was born with all thirty two teeth in his mouth after staying in the womb for twelve months. He was as healthy as a five year boy and he did not cry at the time of his birth but uttered Rama instead
Tulsidas was a hapless child and has gone through various troubles and tolerance during his childhood days.
He was married to Ratnavali. He enormously loved his wife, and due to this one day he had to listen to unkind words spoken by his wife remarking, "that if Tulsidas was even half as devoted to God as he was to her body of flesh and blood, he would have been redeemed from his suffering". Tulsidas left her immediately and decided to devote his life in the worshipping of Lord Rama. He also gained wisdom from Guru Baba Narharidas.
He spent most the years of his life in Chitrakoot, Kashi and Ayodhya. He also composed various scriptures which include: Ramcharitmanas, Ktiwali, Janakimangal, Vinayapatrika, Geetawali, Hanuman Chalia, Barve Ramayana etc.
