From Vedic times, the bindi was created as a means to worship one’s intellect. Therefore, it was used by both men and women. Worship of the intellect was so as to ensure that thoughts, speech, actions, habits and ultimately one’s character becomes pure. A strong intellect can help one to make noble decisions in life, be able to stand up to challenges in life with courage, and recognise and welcome good thoughts in life. The belief was that on this a strong individual, a strong family and strong society can be formed. Red represents honour, love and prosperity, hence it was worn to symbolise these aspects.
