Science behind religious practices_1

Why should we wear marks (kumkum, turmeric, vibhuti, tilak, pottu etc) on the forehead according to the Vedic scriptures?

  •  These marks cover the spots between the eyebrows, which is the seat of memory and thinking. The entire body emanates energy in the form of Electro Magnetic waves-the forehead and subtle spot especially so. That is why worry generates heat and causes headache. So to cool the body and to avoid such unnecessary headache which will take hold of our thinking power, memory we should wear such marks.
  • Invokes a feeling of sanctity in the wearers and others.
  • Vibhuti is made from Cow dung. But it was discovered in 1940 that Cow dung possesses antiseptic properties.🙂

Why some religious people leave tuft of hair on their head?

  • The spinal cord is a long, thin, tubular bundle of nervous tissue and support cells that extends from the brain. The brain and spinal cord together make up the central nervous system. The anatomy of the spinal cord itself consists of millions of nerve fibers which transmit electrical information to and from the limbs, trunk and organs of the body, back to and from the brain.
  • So according to the Vedic scriptures to avoid direct sunlight and heat, tuft of hair has to be left particularly on that part of the head where the spinal cord is connected the brain.🙂
