Traditional and Spiritual meaning of Bindi

Bindi word comes from a Sanskrit word called Bindu, meaning a small dot which is worn by Hindu women in many parts of India.

A traditional Indian bindi is a red/maroon dot worn on the centre of the forehead. Since ancient times this spot is considered a major nerve point in human body. It symbolizes female energy and is believed to protect women and their husbands. It still represents and preserves the symbolic significance that is integrated into Indian mythology.

 

There is also a spiritual significance attached to Bindi. The area between the eyebrows (where the bindi is placed) is said to be the sixth chakra (Ajna Chakra) which is believed to retain energy and strengthen concentration, representing the third eye. Also, it is the round dot around which the mandala is created, representing the universe.
