Bindi, from Sanskrit bindú, meaning “point, drop, dot or small particle”. 

 

Originally, bindis were mainly worn in southern and Southeast Asia.

 

Symbolising many aspects of Asian culture and tradition, from the beginning, a red dot was worn on the forehead to represent a married woman. 

Since ancient times, the area between the eyebrows has been said to represent, the opening of the third eye.

 

The Ajna chakra or sixth chakra, the seat of “concealed wisdom”. A point believed to be where creation begins and may become unity. 

The bindi is said to retain energy and strengthen concentration. 

Today the bindi is worn by millions of people every day.

It remains a symbol of beauty and tradition.

Wear yours with power. 

Love,

Team Bindi
