What is the reason behind applying tilak?
Applying Tilak on the forehead is considered very important in Sanatan Dharma. It is a small mark applied on the forehead, which is applied during worship or other religious occasions. Applying Tilak is a special ritual used in the Hindu tradition. Without applying Tilak, neither permission is given to perform puja nor is the puja completed. Tilak is applied between the two eyebrows on the neck or navel. Applying Tilak improves health and helps in concentrating and calming the mind.
Rules for applying tilak
1. Do not apply tilak without taking bath.
