The area between the eyebrows is the location of “the third eye” or the seat of concealed wisdom. It is the center point wherein all experience is gathered in total concentration. It is believed, during meditation the latent energy (kundalini) rises from the base of the spine towards the head, this agna is the outlet for this potent energy. 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 creation itself — symbolizing auspiciousness and good fortune. The Bindi over this third eye also wards off those trying to influence you in a negative or in a dominating way.
