Sindoor: Symbol of a Hindu Married Woman.

    A Sindoor on the forehead symbolizes the married woman of our nation and for many millenniums since our nation got invaded by Islamic Invaders followed by British rule.

   Every married woman knows the significance and importance Sindoor places in our Vedic Culture, be it from any corners east, west, north or south of India, a woman is known whether she is married or not by looking at a mark of Sindoor or Vermilion on her Forehead, or above her forehead where her hair parts.

   This post is in dedication to the women of India, quite rightly the most graceful, caring, intelligent, loyal, compassionate and noble as compared to females of any races across the globe. This post is a detailed description of what makes an Indian woman and her significance with KUMKUM, POTTU, TILAK, BINDI, SINDOOR, VERMILION, THE HINDU WOMAN'S MARK OF DHARMA AND GRATITUDE. MARK OF MARITAL COMMITMENT IN SANATANA DHARMA.

   The intention of this post is to understand our great culture, our present generation mired in the spin of modern era has forgotten their Vedic culture and are not aware of what lies beneath such a small substance the VERMILION, is a wealth of valuable information, hope the facts in revelation shall enable you to know more about our great Vedic past, a culture that made us pious, graceful, happy and healthy.
   When a married woman applies Sindoor on her hair parting every day, she wears it remembering her husband with gratitude and pray for her husband’s well beings and log life.

   This mark is a symbol of accountability, a carefree young girl from her parents family is now a wife with responsibilities and accountability in her husband’s family, as per Sanatana Dharma she is a daughter in law with duties.

   Let me Challenge if anyone has a spec of doubt, get me a female from any other nations, belonging to any race and culture or from any continent to have the beauty, grace, inner beauty, charm and blush that an Indian Woman possess, I am ready to  lose anything you say. A woman might be beautiful but for sure the women from other places certainly lacks the inner beauty which only Indian females have in abundance. 

   The main reason why our ancestors insisted on early marriage and marriage occurred when a boy was in his early 20’s is that a strong bond between couples can occur only when one is in their youth and can make most of their lives together.
Hindu women are virgins when they marry, and the whole world is jealous of this.  Divorce rates in India is very low as compared to global statistics, the reason being that in India marriages are arranged and unlike west who will never understand the concept of arranged marriage has a high percentage of divorce rate as 8 out of 10 marriage in the west end up in divorce.

   A Hindu married woman walks behind her husband, for her man she is a pillar of strength. In a Indian home whenever there is a difficult situation, her advice is always taken into consideration by her husband based on which they derive at a decision. A Indian Hindu home is a fountainhead of peace!

   When a Hindu married woman applies Sindoor on her maang (hair part on forehead) she draws her energy from the universe via the ether- such is the belief and the mindset of our culture and there is a quantum physics explanation for this which I will come to later. 

   The Sindoor is a potent mark of protection. Attempting to dishonor the Sindoor may cost a man his life in Hindu dharma.  The Sindoor is a holy mark of honour which prevents a married Hindu woman from going astray.

   There is vested interest of the west and Christina missionary organization’s working via the NGO’s who go over the board declaring how dangerous it is to apply Sindoor on forehead.  We are NOT fools.  Not a single Hindu woman has ever died because of her Sindoor.

   But nowadays we find vested FOREIGN FUNDED NGO's "manufacturing “Sindoor with toxic lead and selling it in market so that Hindu women stop applying Sindoor.  Even Foreign Funded Indian TV’s are discouraging their female anchors from applying Sindoor to show they are SECULAR nay SICULAR.

   Modern Sindoor mainly uses vermilion, which is an orange-red pigment.  Vermilion is the purified and powdered form of cinnabar, which is the chief form in which mercury sulfide naturally occurs. As with other compounds of mercury, Sindoor is toxic and must be handled carefully. 

   Every day when a Hindu woman applies Sindoor on her hair parting after a bath, she remembers her husband with gratitude.  It’s a mark of devotion, acceptance, maturity and dependency.  In Hinduism marriage is a lifelong commitment, and there is a sense of belonging. This is a daily pledge of honour and chastity.  Grateful women have memories stored inside their hearts.  Gratitude is the most beautiful and fragrant flower, in the garden of her soul. This particular ritual keeps her mentally healthy and happy. She is less stressed and happier,

   The area where Sindoor is applied is in between the eyebrows, called the Ajna Chakra.  This is the point that Sanatan Hindu Dharma consider the entry and exit point of our jivaatma (soul).

   Let the world’s greatest hypnotist try to hypnotize a Hindu woman with bindi dot or Sindoor on her forehead.  He can try till the cows come home, he won’t be successful. This area is called the third eye of Shiva.  Applying the bindi signifies her eternal link with the Supreme Being.

   A Hindu woman firmly believes that this dot protects her from negative tendencies and forces.  Hindus believe that Goddess Parvati grants "AKHANDA SAUBHAGYA" (lifelong good fortune) to all the females who wear Sindoor in their maang or hair parting. 

   Sindoor is the symbol of Goddess Parvati wife of lord Shiva. The Hindu woman believed that when she applies Sindoor hair parting, she is blessed by Goddess Parvati, who also protects her husband.

   The bright red colour of the Sindoor channelizes the passion of married life.  It is NOT about fashion - it is spiritual.  In ancient times Vedic Sindoor had musk and sandalwood. Red colour rules taste and smell.  It also symbolizes joy, passion, dynamism and enthusiasm.   Red is the color with the longest wavelength, being the nearest visible light to infrared in the electromagnetic spectrum, it’s the colour of the sari of Goddess of prosperity Laxmi.

   Ajna chakra is the point of confluence where the three main nadis or forces- Ida, pingala and sushumna merge into one stream of consciousness and flow up to sahasrara, the crown center.

   The Ajna chakra is more active in women. Women are more sensitive, psychic and perceptive and they can discern a lecherous eye.  Frequency of Ajna chakra is similar to the frequency of planet Venus. The planet Venus symbolize sex, love, beauty, enticement, seduction, and persuasive female charm.

   The de-toxified mercury in the Sindoor is capable of absorbing positive energy vibrations from the universe and gives virtue and power to the woman to run her life with patience, love, understanding, forgiveness.

   The Sindoor activates pituitary as well as pineal gland, so that the body and mind of our married women function better.

   The hair parting or maang is the spiritual center called Brahmarandhra, an aperture in the crown of head. This astral aperture is very sensitive, and is the gateway to the absolute extending from perineum to the crown.   

   This red pigment vermilion, a pure form of mercuric sulfide, is traditionally obtained by reaction of mercury (produced by reduction from cinnabar) with sulfur, since the past 9000 years in India.  All in India are aware of how deadly a poison Mercury is.   Sulphur in Sindoor neutralizes the toxicity of mercury.

   Sindoor can also be made at home from turmeric and alum, to be safe from vested manufacturers who try to sabotage Hinduism. The turmeric powder, becomes red when mixed with lime juice or lime powder, moistened in water, or with alum.

   Mercury in Sindoor creates a resonance which vibrates the pineal gland, to release Neurotransmitters serotonin, melatonin, DMT, etc.  When you get very close to orgasm, and the male gets close to ejaculation, the feelings will be overwhelming and the brain tends to shut down and reverse the energy which will then take a downward course and seek release through the genitals.  

   When both partners melt with each other, vital energy is exchanged between the masculine and the feminine, and the resonating energy build to higher levels.  During fear, the etheric body shrinks and during love it expands.  All our energy and vitality comes from the etheric body.

   The pineal gland is the physical concomitant of Ajna chakra and the pituitary gland is of sahasrara.  Just as the pituitary and pineal glands are intimately connected, so are Ajna and sahasrara.  We could say that Ajna is the gateway to sahasrara chakra.  If Ajna is awakened and functioning properly, all the experiences happening in sahasrara can be managed well.  The pituitary gland secretes various hormones which instigates our sexual consciousness and our sensuality.

   Sindoor is the reason why divorce in Hindu India is less.    When a married woman wears Sindoor she will NOT do what she is NOT supposed to do. Nagging is less.  One of the main reasons of divorce is nagging—the drip drip, constant nag or it can be the hurricane force nagging.  The marriage is now full of negativity, contempt, one-upmanship and resentment, the net result is a miserable divorce and the uprooted lives. 

   Sindoor mark greatly enhance female beauty and grace.  Sindoor is one of the 16 adornments (solah shringar) for a married Hindu woman as per our scriptures. The day a woman gets married, this vermilion colour becomes a part of her entity. Sindoor represents an Indian woman’s commitment to have a lifelong relationship with her husband.

How many western women know the real meaning of commitment?  How many of them are virgins before they marry? Let them think, they and their stupid destructive culture. But the pain is that we are moving to their culture at a rapid pace without a caution.

   Which is why one should never wear a bindi which is a round plastic piece with red felt velvet on one side and glue on the other side – manufactured by an ISO 9002 company, which is as good as useless, if you want to be a good wife to your husband then try this ancient tradition of Vermilion or Sindoor on your forehead, believe me it will not cost you a fortune rather it will cost you nothing but what it gives back is blessings in abundance.

REMEMBER OUR ANCESTORS WERE NOT FOOLS LIKE HOW BLIGHTY BARMY ANGREZ SAID INDIA IS FULL OF SUPERSTITION…. What can these John Bulls know, who don’t know to clean their behind after a crap.

   In Sanatana Dharma, there is no superstition rather science is personified in the most brilliant manner from perfection to precision. Our Maharishis never gave any scientific explanation cause had they given it like the scientists of now with their experiments and documentation, we would have been more materialistic, greedy and ambitious like a modern day corporates whose only goal is Exploitation deceit and rule all with a tinge of Hypocrisy. Our Maharishi’s wanted us to be more close to god and spiritual in our life which is why they spun all scientific explanation in a meticulous manner and portrayed such significance by way of culture and tradition, hence we see why we have so many festivals in our culture and it is culture the reason why Sanatana Dharma still survives in spite of numerous attacks from Foreign Invaders for the past 1300 years.


May Maa Bharti Shower her Grace on You,

Griha Pravesh: House Warming Ceremony of your New Home

I enter this home with a Kumbha, Fill it with ambrosia and anoint, All those who drink of this heavenly water, And protect this home enter this house to dwell in it.   Atharva Veda…

   In our vedic tradition, Hindus convert a new house into a home by performing House Warming Ceremony often known as Griha Pravesh or Griha Pravesham as is called in South India.

   Griha Pravesh is a very important part of Hindu culture and it's usually done in the most auspicious manner by consulting with the astrologer to look for a better date and time to perform House Warming Ceremony known as Muhurat.

   As Hindus firmly believe to lead their family in peace and harmony to prevail forever, it is essential that the home they live in should possess all basic requirements to fill happiness, peace, grace and fortune.

   The Griha Pravesh Ceremony is basically a fire ritual spun with gratitude, in the Vastu Shastra certain basic practise are to be followed while constructing a new house by which the Home itself becomes a temple, in short we call a Home a ‘Human Temple’.

   It is not only a mere shelter for human beings to rest and eat, the concept behind house design is the same as for Temple design. Vastu Shastra says all spaces and directions in the home has an energy which is unseen it’s very necessary that the spaces should be free from all negative energy to allow a free flow and passage of positive energy in to your home.

   The Mantra of Griha Pravesh is derived from the Matsya Purana, written down more than 7000 years back, it is however very necessary that Griha Nathan (owner of the home) not stay in the home without performing Griha Pravesh.

   Important ceremony of all is the Vastu Pooja, Ganapathy Homam, Milk Boiling Ritual, Coconut Breaking Ritual, Sprinkling of Kalash Kumbham water or Ganga Jalam in the house. Milk over boiling ritual is mandatory on the day of Griha Pravesh which is performed after Vastu Pooja and Ganapathy Homam.

   Milk over boiling ceremony is performed by female member of the house as milk signifies Purity, as mil will split if there is any pollution. The boiling over of milk is done so that prosperity, wealth and abundance prevail in your home.

   Coconut breaking is done soon after milk over boiling and your new house become a home for you to live in. The Milk is first offered to God, which is sweetened with jiggery or sugar and is distributed among relatives as offerings or Prasad.

    Coconut is very necessary for any type of Hindu Fire rituals, it’s one of the main Fruits of Hindu Culture, breaking Coconut is considered very auspicious as it’s a form of bloodless sacrifice, it has to be done with a proper intention, it is a common belief that if a person breaks a coconut with a wish, then that wish will come true. Hence we see a stone in front of Ganesh Temple where one must throw the coconut to break it. If the coconut splits into two, your wish will surely succeed hence coconut breaking must be done with and intention.

   In Hindu Tradition there was no Animal Sacrifice.

Ganapathy Homam is performed a good one and a half hour before sunrise and is necessary that it should get over before Sunrise which is basically a Kerala Tradition however in some regions Ganapathy Homam is done well after sunrise.

  Fine smoke emitting out from Ganapathy Homam by burning Wood, Cow dung, Ghee, camphor and other items spreads all over your home and your home gets purified by the smoke of the holy fire, it’s very necessary that the owner of the house along with his family members must stay overnight on the day of Griha Pravesh the house must not be dark or locked, the windows and doors of all rooms baring bathroom must be open so that all negative energies in your house shall be dispelled out and your room will be filled with all positive vibrations by the holy fire of Ganapathy Homam.

   The Ganapathy Homam is performed to prevent negative influences of planets and ward away evil eyes and negative vibrations, since Lord Ganesha is the Son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati, the is known to be the remover of all obstacles hence the Ganapathy Homam is performed during the Griha Pravesh Ceremony. A Couch Shell can be blown after the Ganapathy Homam which is very good as the sound from the couch shell creates a scalar wave that can travel faster than the speed of light.

   After Ganapathy Homam, the family members can make a proper entry into the house. The lady of the house carries a Kalasha Kumbahm or Pot and she and her family members places her right leg first inside the house from the doorway.

   The Rig Veda has mentioned about the Kalasha:

   The kalasha is made of Copper metal. It is filled with living Ganges water, the side of the pot is marked with Swastika symbol on it using turmeric. A whole unhusked betel nut is put inside the water, 5 mango leaves are places on the mouth of the pot with the point of the leaves facing upwards and a red sindoor dot is marked on each mango leaf.

   On the mouth of the pot an unhusked Coconut is placed that binds the mango leaves. The Betel nut has the capability to reduce and convert copper ions to copper nano particles which gives a pleasant aroma to the water. The betel nut is male and the mango leaf is female.

   The leafs of Mango tree are used to ward off evil spirits, Bunches of Mango leafs has the capability of absorbing negative energy from the anyone entering your home, which is why mango leaves are hung at the door steps during the day of Griha Pravesh. Mango leaf is also the symbol of fertility and is associated with the god of Love Kama Deva.
 This water in the Kalasha Pot is sprinkled in all rooms of your Home.

   A Kalasha has a deep meaning, Our Rishis and Maharishi’s were not stupid or mere dreamers in Ganja Hallucinations, rather they were men of incredible intellect and had a great vision.

   The only possession that a Maharishi has was a saffron Robe, a wooden stick shaped in ‘Y’ rudraksha beads and a Copper Lota (Pot), this lota either contained living water from River Saraswati or the Ganges. The Maharishis resonated the cosmos with their 12 strand DNA and a king sized Pineal Gland.

   Water is the very source of all life, the molecules of water are affected by our thoughts and emotions, human vibrational energy, ideas and music also affect the molecular structure of water, a small amount of water can hold a set of information and is particularly sensitive to the vibrations and frequencies coming around it. Water remembers the information and stores it and passes it to the surrounding areas when it travels through various water cycles.

   Water responds to subtle events which is far away and out into the cosmos and water is the most sensitive medium of reception. We know very well that the Sun and the Moon communicate with Water and our earth itself resonate along with the frequency of water, Living water is and organised sate of matter and energy capable of storing and transmitting information.

   Water can retain its information even after it goes through an infinite process of filtration and distillation, the memory is stored in clusters of H2O molecules.

    Water, sanctified by chanting mantra or by bathing an Idol is known as teertham, Kalasha is an expression of time, and it’s the womb and within its security safety and nourishing space there is abundance and prosperity.  

   Mango is the king of fruits. Mango leaves have inherent water and provide good cooling from the sun rays.   Hindu homes hand mango leaves on the entrance door as a protective barrier against bad ethereal auras. On the day of Griha Pravesh banana trees are attached to poles at the compound gate, from where guests enter the premises.  This has also the effect of neutralizing evil auras. On the day of Griha Pravesh all meals are served of banana leaf. After the Homam, the smoke is cleared and before the milk is boiled.

    A Vedic humped cow is brought into the house and taken to all rooms.  If this is NOT possible then just keep it at the entrance.  If the cow takes a crap, it is considered auspicious.

    A western humpless cow gives toxic A1 milk and this ghee cannot be used in Agnihotra rituals. All gods reside in the 'Cow' as per our scriptures. The cow is fed with some fruits. Turmeric and kumkum ( sindhoor ) is applied on the cow. The inmates touch the cow with a small prayer in their hearts.

   The house must be scrupulously clean before the griha pravesh ceremony. Following the house-warming, the family should occupy the property right away, as it is inauspicious to leave the property empty again after these rituals have been conducted.

   Griha Pravesh should not be done when the wife (main lady of the house) is more than 6 months pregnant or on her periods.

Above is Ganapathy Homam performed for my new home on 5th April 2015.
Peace & Grace,
