Ashtagandha Powder Indians attach great importance to the sacred Ashtagandha sandalwood puja tilak on the forehead. It is a common practice in Hinduism to apply yellow sandalwood tilak. You must have known the religious importance of applying tilak of Ashtagandha sandalwood on the forehead, but it also has scientific significance here.
Scientific significance The area between the eyebrows, where you apply sandalwood, is the location of the ‘agni’ chakra. In yogic science, this chakra or energy channel, often called the third eye, is considered one of the immense powers. The third eye represents the point of awakening and is usually activated when you pursue spiritual science.
The area between the eyebrows is believed to be the convergence point of nerves, and massaging it is believed to reduce headaches. So, applying Ashtagandha sandalwood pooja tilak on your forehead helps in cooling down the nerves and gives relief from headache caused due to excessive sunlight.
