Have you ever wondered why did our ancestors said that the human eyes are so powerful -
Powerful enough to disturb others mind – even powerful enough to make others to lose something…
# Why do our Indian ladies wear a little red dot, the vision barrier on their fore head?
# Have you ever thought why did they say that after 40 years of age people will get a dog’s character while somebody irritating them?
# When our old generation grandma could be identified with thick glass spectacles after a cataract surgery, but with a new generation grandma it became unidentifiable? Why?
# People say that we can donate our eyes to others- Can we really do that?
Our Ancestors attached a great importance to this spot on the forehead between the two eyebrows -- a hot spot considered a major nerve point in human body since ancient time.
The spot exactly in between the two eyes is the most sensitive area where our master gland, the pituitary is located. The gland is controlling our emotions and concentrations.
In fact that is the place people can be hypnotized by passing the invisible rays of vision and can easily be mesmerized. To avoid such rays of others our Indian women used to have Bindi - a red round barrier.
“The area between the eyebrows, the sixth chakra known as the 'agna' meaning 'command', is the seat of concealed wisdom. It is the centre point wherein all experience is gathered in total concentration. According to the tantric cult, when during meditation the latent energy ('kundalini') rises from the base of the spine towards the head, this 'agna' is the probable outlet for this potent energy.
The red 'kumkum' between the eyebrows is said to retain energy in the human body and control the various levels of concentration. It is also the central point of the base of the creation itself — symbolizing auspiciousness and good fortune.”
The traditional Kumkum is made from dried turmeric. The turmeric is dried and powdered with Natural ingredients without any chemical. The fact can’t be ignored that the turmeric is good for skin and acts as a natural antiseptic.
The red bindi is also applied by married Hindu women as a symbol of their wedding vows. It is their tradition that they always keep the powder in a small beautiful container and offer to other married women whoever make a visit to their home.
