Like Shiva, Maa Durga is also referred to as “Triyambake” meaning the three eyed Goddess. The left eye represents desire (the moon), the right eye represents action (the sun), and the central eye knowledge (fire).
Hence the first thing that comes to you when you close your eyes to pray are those defined eyes and a big bindi.
Bindi has such a significance in the way we as Indian women do our shringaar . The red ‘kumkum’ between the eyebrows is said to retain energy in the human body and control the various levels of concentration. It is also the central point of the base of the creation itself — symbolizing auspiciousness and good fortune.
Today being Navami , going to temple i wanted those eyes to be defined and the bindi is hand drawn ( i am not a sticker fan, i use sticker bindi only if the weather is too humid ) .
Happy navarathri and power to U …
