Auspiciousness in work
Since every human being requires a good level of auspiciousness in the work which i=he is going to perform, he prays to the supreme lord to bless him with all auspiciousness. Prayer is the only refuge of a person who really desires something from the supreme lord, provided the prayer is made from the core of the heart, he is respectful to the judgement of the prayer the lord makes and he has firm faith in the supreme lord.
Everyday, we are in a situation that we have to goo to start something new like First day of job, interview for job, making a new house, moving to a new place, harvesting the fields, going for making a new relation, getting the relation for the bride or bridegroom etc.
Many-a-times, we face situations when we are going for a shubh karya and some how or the other the work is either not done or is returned undone in the mid of it. It has been a common observance that people become very much disgraced and render lethargic when the work is about to be done and someone or something comes in between, spoiling the deal of the day.
All these happenings are due to the inauspicious elements which are present either with the person or nearby the person in hidden/visible form which he is unaware of. These inauspicious elements are planned by various causes and factors which deride the person from success.
Some of the causes may be:
- Confusions in the mind
- Influence of malefic planet in the kundali.
- Presence of numerous vighnas in the karya
- Lack of planetary matching
- Presence of evil eye
- Some vashikaran therapy by envious people
Vighneshwar Lord Ganesha
Lord Ganesha is addressed as Vighnaharta, VIghneshwar, Sarvavighnahara etc. He is the embodiment of all auspiciousness because his head is the resting place of lotus feet of Lord Sri Krishna by whom he gets this potency.
As per Brahma Samhita (5.50)
I adore the primeval Lord Govinda, whose lotus feet are always held by Ganesha upon the pair of tumuli protruding from his elephant head in order to obtain power for his function of destroying all the obstacles on the path of progress of the three worlds.
As per Shiva Purana, Srimati Uma devi created Lord Ganesha in order to remove all the inauspiciousness from the entire world. Lord Shiva, the topmost of vaishnavas gave him the similar blessing to be worshipped in the beginning of all Karma Kand pujas.

Guru Nanak Dev Ji travelled to various places to spread the word of love, humanity and Universal brotherhood. Once he visited Saidpur, now known as Eminabad, so the head of the place Malik Bhago decided to make all the comfortable arrangements for Guru Nanak Ji. But to everybody’s surprise Guru Nanak Dev Ji decided to stay at the house of a poor carpenter named Lalo. In spite of the worst condition of Lalo, he arranged food to offer Guru Nanak ji. Nanak Dev ji accepted the food with love and was pleased by the hospitality of Lalo.
Malik Bhago was known for his corrupt means of earning money and taking the advantage of the plight of poor farmers. His ego could not accept that Guru Nanak ji preferred to live with poor Lalo and not him. Malik Bhago organized a special gathering and invited all the sacred men of the city along with Guru Nanak Dev ji.
When Nanak Dev ji refused to accept the invitation of Bhago, he ordered his guards to bring Nanak Dev ji to his place. When he reached Bhago’s place Malik Bhago said, “O holy man, I have prepared so many dishes for you, but you are staying with a poor carpenter and eating his dry bread? Why?”
Guru ji replied, “I cannot eat your food because your bread is made from corrupt money sucked from the poor, while Lalo’s bread is made from hard earned money.” On hearing this Malik Bhago became red with anger and told him to prove his point.
Guru Nanak Dev ji asked Lalo and Bhago to get their respective piece of bread. Guru ji squeezed both the breads with his hands. Milk dripped out from Lalo’s bread and blood from Bhago’s bread. Everybody was shocked to see this sight and Malik Bhago was terribly shaken with guilt. He immediately fell in the feet of Nanak Dev ji and asked for forgiveness. On Nanak Dev ji suggestion he distributed all his corrupt wealth among the needy farmers and from then on he decided to live a life of honesty.
With Guru Nanak dev ji’s grace Malik Bhago realized his mistake and could follow the path of righteousness.
At the confluence of rivers Ganga and Yamuna the famous place of pilgrimage Prayag is situated. The Hindus believe that by taking bath in the holy river, all the sins are destroyed. On every festival thousands of devotees go and are profited by bathing there.
Once Dasganu, disciple of Sai baba decided to visit Prayag and take a dip in the sacred river. With positive thought he went to Sai baba to see his blessings and permission. Baba asked him “What is the need of wandering there when our Prayag is right here?” Dasganu was shocked and couldn’t believe on Baba’s words.
Sai baba said, have faith in me. Just then a great miracle happened and as Dasganu bowed down at Sai Baba’s feet a stream of ganga and Yamuna began to flow at His feet. Seeing the miracle the devotion and love of Dasganu over flew. Stream of tears began to flow from his eyes and his faith was completed. He felt an inner inspiration and the strotrarswani of Sai was automatically chanted at the moment.
“A forehead without a Tilak, a woman without a husband, a Mantra the meaning of which is not known while doing Japa (recitation), the head that does not bend before holy personages, a heart without mercy, a body devoid of health, a custom without purity,… – all these are worthy of condemnation. They exist for name’s sake only.” Our holy scriptures have mentioned the vitality of ‘Tilak’ or ‘Bindi’ applied between the space between two eyebrows.
According to varied traditions, different types of Tilaks are applied using different materials.
- The red kumkum tilak symbolise power, valour and dynamism indicating the devotees of Goddess Shakti or Durga.
- The U shaped tilak of sandalwood paste symbolise purity, calmness and tranquillity indicating the devotees of Lord Vishnu.
- The three horizontal lines (tripundra) of Vibhuti or yagna ash signifying wealth, fortune and devotion of the Shaiva group of worshippers.
- The three horizontal lines of holy ashes, with or without a red dot symbolise the worshippers of Lord Shiva.
Significance of applying Tilak:
Our human body is a source of energy and it continuously emits electromagnetic waves through certain special points. The Aajna Chakra or brow chakra connects to the Bhramanadi i.e. the main spot of wisdom, memory and thinking.
- The point soothes the inner soul and leads to the awakening of third eye of consciousness
- It provides the cooling effect to the body that prevents the emission of energy
- Being a major acupressure point, it relieves headaches through stabilising the nerves
- The center point is connected to the eye muscle that reduces the probability of vision defects due to tilak
- It keeps one away from the evil energies and prevents the chance of hypnotism
- Regular application of tilak helps in maintaining the immunity level
- As per Ayurveda, the spot calms the stress and fatigue to solve the problem of insomnia
Nowadays the scientific and religious relevance have lost its true essence in the society and is replaced by the artificial and fancy decorative stick bindis, which is just an object of show off and fulfils no other purpose. Instead abide by the nature and its beneficial products and apply tilak with the prayer – “May I remember the Lord. May this pious feeling pervade all my activities. May I be righteous in my deeds.”
