WHY RICE ON KUMKUM TIKA ON OUR FOREHEAD

There are lot of beliefs attached to our Jain & Hindu traditions of performing pooja’s.
One of the traditions is to put a Kumkum Tika and rice on your forehead and then throw them behind you.
This Tika is put on your forehead between two eyebrows. !Why?
Scientifically it is said the we get a lot of peace and calmness when it put a Kumkum tika in middle of the eyebrows as there are two cells found in the brains Serotonin and Beta-endorphin. Look down and understand how it affects our system.
Serotonin is a monoamine neurotransmitter, serotonin is primarily found in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, platelets, and in the central nervous system (CNS) of animals including humans. It is a well-known contributor to feelings of well-being; it is also known to contribute to happiness.
Beta-endorphin is a potent pain suppressant
Your mind power increases and you do not feel tired and you also get relived from a lot of illnesses.
The main reason of putting rice on your head is that Rice is considered as to be one of the signs of purity, and why it is thrown behind is that as we give rice ahutis during hawans(a regious pooja) therefore it is said to be very pure. It is also said that rice grains are a sign of positive energy’s.
This is why we should put a Kumkum Tika and put rice grains and throw them behind as it would change the negative auras to positive energy’s
It gives us positive thoughts and throws the negative behind us.
