The customary tradition of tying a Mauli on the wrist during any religious ceremony has usually been witnessed by us. In the beginning or at the end of the ceremony, pandits tie a mauli on the right hand of males and on the left hand of females. The ceremonies are considered incomplete without the mauli and it holds various religious and scientific significances.
 

 

Relevance of the thread (Mauli):
 
The auspicious blessings of Tridev- Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh and Tridevi- Lakshmi, Saraswati and Durga; are bestowed upon the devotee by tying mauli.
 
Mauli acts as a protecting shield against the evil energies and worldly problems.
 
To receive the grace of the Gods which are worshipped during the puja or havan.
 
The thread signifies the unconditional promise of serving and surrendering ourselves in the feet of God Almighty.
 
The pious thread provides the strength to fight against diseases, enemies and other dangers.
 
It is believed that Lord Vishnu during his incarnation of Vamana tied a red thread on the hands of King Bali to grant him immortality.
 
 

 

As per Ayurveda, our entire body is processed through veins so when we wear a mauli, it helps in creating a balanced blood circulation and proper body functioning.
 
The mauli on the wrist helps in controlling the blood pressure.
 
It is beneficial in controlling the Vaat (Wind), Pitt (Bile) and Cough (Phlegm) s, when they are in a disordered state.
 
It also acts as a commitment of love and care, when tied by a sister on her brother’s wrist.
