IMPORTANCE OF BINDI ON FOREHEAD
Bindi is a colorful dot that is placed on the forehead of women in Hindu Dharma. The origin of the bindi starts way back in the ancient times but it has lost this significance in the modern times and is mostly worn all over the world as an accessory. Bindis have a special significance even today in the Indian tradition. There a different colors worn for different occasions and stages in life. A married women often wears a Red colored Bindi as this shows true love and prosperity. Though most women these days don’t follow these rules of color anymore.
Use of Bindi in a spiritual way
In a Spiritual view, bindi plays the most important role in hindu culture. Every morning a hindu takes a bath and sits in prayer just to seek for the absolute truth through every prayer. However, it is true that one cannot sit in prayer the whole day. So when the women leave the prayer room, they are expected to put some mark on their forehead, which will remind them during the day about all the activities and the purpose of life. It is obvious that they cannot see the mark on their own forehead every time so whenever they see it on another face, they will get a chance to recall the purpose of your life. The idea is to remember that all the things you are doing are dedicated towards the achievement of this supreme goal of self realization.
