    Re: Black Bindi

    Dear Anu,

    Bindi is a colorful dot that is placed on the forehead of both men and 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 always wears a Red colored Bindi as this shows true love and prosperity. A black bindi is never adorned by a married woman as this is considered inauspicious. Though most women these days don't follow these rules of color anymore.

    Usually married women don't wear black bindi. Only singles and Widowed women will wear it.

    Red bindi denotes married and black bindi single status for a girl in Hindu tradition. Dark coffee colour of black shades bindi in tear drop exclamation mark shape as a self-adhesive sticker denotes what while not worn as a fashion statement, but as an important message to somebody?

    Re: Black Bindi

    In olden days (ancient times) bindis were worn in lot of color red, white, yellow, brown and black made from plant leafs, seeds, roots or even sand. Also they wore thin leaves cut into different shapes in their fore head in-front of ajna chakra to stop evil forces entering the most easily affect-able chakra... It also symbolises third invisible eye (the eye of knowledge).

    Red symbolises love and prosperity,
    White symbolises purity... Usually sumangalis are not wearing white because for the sake of family and children to tell small small lies and so they are not 100% pure.
    Yellow stands for intellect. You can see in Lakshmi temple they provide turmerci powder.
    Black keeps you away from evil eyes and doshas. If you see people still uses black bindhi for infants to keep them unaffected by dristhi or evil eyes....

    In medivel periods people who follow tantric workships wears black to protect them from reverse spell.... so normal people started to believe who wore black are tantric worshippers and stopped wearing black bindi.

    Usually bindhi were worn in round by women and men wore it as per the cult.
    Legend says that Radha has worn it in tear shape and Seetha in cresent shape. It is also mentioned that Drupathi has wiped her kumkum in the Graurava sabha and it has brought bad luck to them. Hence wiping of kumkum or not wearing in proper shape is considered inauspicious and usually avoided.
