Scripture Classes 9

Posted by
Devi (Chennai, India) on 14 February 2020 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

This tuft that you see in this boy's head will be there on every student's head.
The Scientific reason behind this is that it attracts Cosmic energy and affords enlightenment. It is said that knotting this applies little pressure on the brain and helps one to improve concentration and mind control and improves memory.
Now this TUFT has become a FASHION STATEMENT with many..especially artists and musicians. Originally only the Priests and Temple Priests had this !

With this image , the series comes to an end :))))Hope it was not boring :)))

Nicely documented, though I'm not sure you can call it a scientific reason as it is belief rather than evidence based. I think if there was irrefutable evidence everyone would have one :)

@grouser: Well grouser.. as Einstein sayd "Religion without Science is Blind and Science without Religion is Lame" A lot of ancient beliefs all over the world are being interpreted as TRUTH these days. The God Particle and Professor Peter Higgs may be perhaps taken as an example. Not only this hairstyle but a lot of other things should go hand in hand with this, like an early morning head-bath before sunrise, chanting, application of the black paste ( a mixture of the sacred black ash from the homa kund that I had featured here , with Cow's ghee) on one's forehead between the eyebrows...all go together to increase the mental powers. For instance, my dad ( who was a Civil Engineer) sported this and was studying Scriptures along with the academic pursuits had this till his final years in the school, when he turned up one day, removing it and convincing my grandpa that the co students were teasing him! Of course, he had a small token one ..I must say that his memory power was astounding...he vever had to wear specs even when he was 82(when he passed away) as he could read small prints, and used to get up at 3.30 a m and do his chants! Well... One cannot just sport this as Hair Style as I said. Ultimately it depends upon the individual's beliefs! :))) I am that crazy blend of modern and traditional beliefs..I can appreciate Jethro Tull....Ian Anderson , Beethoven, and yet stick to and believe in a lot of traditions! Now.. Science is slowly proving many of the ancient beliefs as TRUTHS!!

Oh...I can understand but it is very stunning . Having this very tight tuft should help keep your head straight too and keep your attention
This is a great series , very interesting . Thank you Devi !

beach from Oshawa, Ontario, Canada

That is interesting. Many religious traditions have beliefs around hair: orthodox Jews don't cut the side hair, Sikhs don't cut their hair at all (I believe). This is fascinating. But frustrating, because I am nearly bald! No hope for me, I suppose. :(

14 Feb 2020 12:04pm

@beach: :)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))) May be you had a lovely crop of hair when you were young !!!!

Marjolein from Enkhuizen, Netherlands

I just cut my hair. Too bad now I can't be a student. Neither an artist nor a musician. No more career for me. :-))

I find this series very educational Devi and absolutely not boring!

@Marjolein: Never too late for anything in life Marjolein...

Hiro from Kyoto, Japan

Thanks for the explanation.
And what the red string mean ?

14 Feb 2020 9:29pm

@Hiro: Okay. The thread can be red or black or yellow. There will be a RUDRAKSHA SEED or a Prayer bead strung on this thread. The Internet gives one a lot of information on Rudraksha.I have a few of them in our Prayer room. given to us from many Gurus and revered obes.

Harry from Apex, NC, United States

well, if there is a Scientific reason that it attracts Cosmic energy and affords enlightenment, then the wonder is that everyone everywhere has not adopted this not just artists and musicians.

15 Feb 2020 1:40am

@Harry: :)) Thank you Harry. Do read the comment I have posted under grouser's statement :)))
