Application[ edit ] Kumkuma is most often applied by Indians to the forehead. The reason has to do with the ancient Indian belief that "the human body is divided into seven vortices of energy, called chakras , beginning at the base of the spine and ending at the top of the head. The sixth chakra , also known as the third eye , is centered in the forehead directly between the eyebrows and is believed to be the channel through which humankind opens spiritually to the Divine". Common forehead marks[ edit ] Shaivites: Followers of Shiva usually apply three white horizontal lines with a dot of kumkuma at the center. Swaminarayana: Followers of the Swaminarayan faith apply kumkuma at the center of the forehead and between a U-shaped tilaka. The tilaka is normally yellow and made from sandalwood.
