Why do some Indian women have a red dot on their forehead?

Traditionally, the red bindi (or sindhur) was worn only by the married Hindu women, but now it has become a part of women's fashion. Traditionally, the red dot is made up of bovine blood and dirt (earth), however, even this has changed in that many women wear a jewel (authentic gemstone or otherwise).

How have the ancient Israelites affected major religions today?

Judaisms effect on modern religionsIn many ways , perhaps the most significant being that after Zoroastrianism , Judaism is the second major faith that was monotheistic . In addition , the old testament , composed of the pentateuch , deutoronomy and other writings and stories of the Hebrew prophets are a precursor and integral part of the Bible as well as the christian faith . Also , the Koran is largely an interpretation of the old testament , and the Hebrew prophets are revered by the Islamic religion as well . So most certainly , the ancient Israelites have had a profound effect on the modern major religions .

==new answer== The best is yet to come. In the universal language of mind, Israelites anre the keepers of the secrets.

Why do people have red dots on their foreheads?

The Bindi, or the dot, has a deep spiritual meaning for Hindus that revolves around chakra and figuratively seeing with a third eye. Chakra is the belief that certain points on the body have a deeper spiritual purpose to them. The point in between the eyes is considered to be a focal point of concentration and understanding, hence the figurative third eye reference, to see what most do not. It revolves around the belief in being conscious of things that take deep spiritual focus.


It also can carry the idea of the center of the universe around us is at that point on the forehead that deals with concentration and meditation. It is a symbol for many, but for some the dot is actually believed to help them be able to see things clearly.
