Ashtagandha Powder Indians attach great importance to the sacred Ashtagandha Powder Pooja Tilak on the forehead. Applying Tilak of yellow Ashtagandha powder is a common practice in Hinduism. You must have known the religious importance of applying Tilak of Ashtagandha powder on the forehead, but here it has scientific importance as well.
Scientific significance The area between the eyebrows, where you apply Ashtagandha, is the seat of the ‘Agni’ chakra. In yogic science, this chakra or energy channel, often called the third eye, is regarded as one of immense power. The third eye represents the point of awakening and is usually activated when you study spiritual science.
The area between the eyebrows is believed to be the convergence point of the nerves and massaging it helps reduce headaches. Therefore, applying Ashtagandha Puja tilak on your forehead cools the nerves and relieves headache caused by excessive sunlight.
