Some Asian Indians wear a dot or bindi on their forehead. When dressing up, it is similar to wearing jewelry or accessories. It is a way to decorate the forehead and it comes in many colors and shapes.
In Hinduism, the bindi or dot is placed between the eyebrows to signify the “third eye.” The third eye represents wisdom and concentration. Many individuals who meditate focus their sight on the area between the eyebrows to help them concentrate. In addition, wearing the bindi reminds individuals that having a strong mind can help you make the right decisions in life.
The color of the bindi also has different meanings associated with it. Traditionally, women wore red bindis to represent honor, love and wealth.
