Tilak is a line of kumkum, which is made from dried turmeric and slaked lime, usually applied on the forehead and sometimes in the hands and on the chest of a person.
This is one of the oldest traditions of Hinduism and dates further back than the Vedic times. It signifies the transcendence of Maya and being one with Parameshwara. Parameshwara means God of all gods (Param-ultimate, Eeshwara-god of destruction and rejuvenation). To be one with Parameshwara means attaining Moksha, which in turn refers to inner peace.
The place between the brows is the seat of the third eye, and also the Ajna Chakra, which signifies enlightenment. Hence, applying tilak is said to have a positive influence on one’s path to attaining spiritual enlightenment.
India Imprints acknowledges and revers such a wonderful tradition that is said to have a positive effect on our psyche an brings us closer to a wiser and more peaceful existence.
