Applying Tilak on the Forehead - Importance of religious Practices

Tiluk In Hindu culture Tilak is used as a religious mark, a white sandalwood tilak mark signifies purity; a red kumkum mark signifies velour and is blessings for victory where in olden time the queens used to apply red tilak for King while moving to war as a symbol of blessing for victory. And turmeric tilak signifies prosperity.

Usually it is said that tilak is a blessing of the Lord and a protection against wrong tendencies and forces. In a wedding, a Kumkum tilak is applied on the forehead of both the bride and groom so that there should not be any negative energy entering into body which is also called as drushti in some geography of the country.

As we know Lord shiva have the his 3rd eye on his forehead which is very powerful similarly it is said that everyone have third eye in their forehead between two eyes where the negative energy enter (dhrusti). By having a tilak help you focus your energies and avoid entering negativity into us though you also need tremendous mind control for it.

Scientifically the forehead a spot between two eyes is considered as a major nerve point in human body. Since ancient times the Tilak is believed to prevent the loss of “energy”, the red ‘kumkum’ between the eyebrows is said to retain energy in the human body and control the various levels of concentration.

Another major point is about acupressure i.e. while applying kumkum the points on the mid-brow region and Adnya-chakra are automatically pressed. This also facilitates the blood supply to the face muscles.
