CARDINAL IVAN DIAS

PREFECT EMERITUS, CONGREGATION FOR THE EVANGELIZATION OF PEOPLES, ROME, FORMER ARCHBISHOP OF BOMBAY

 

WEARS A HINDU MARK IN THE CENTER OF HIS FOREHEAD

 

THIS MARK, CALLED “TILAK” IS OF RELIGIOUS SIGNIFICANCE TO HINDUS.

IT IS NEVER APPLIED BY MUSLIMS OR CHRISTIANS [ESPECIALLY PROTESTANTS].

MANY CATHOLIC WOMEN HOWEVER COMMONLY FLAUNT A STYLISED “BINDI”.

NOW THERE IS AN ALARMING TREND OF THE MARK’S INCREASING USE BY NUNS

AND BY CATHOLIC MEN – NOT AMONG THE LAITY,

BUT AMONG PRIESTS, BISHOPS, CARDINALS, AND EVEN THE APOSTOLIC NUNCIO

 

St Thomas, Turnabout

I have scoured the internet and my research library seeking information, any information which says that the bindi or tilak is a purely Indian cultural phenomenon. While I didn’t find a shred of evidence that says that, I found tons of evidence to the contrary. My findings are compiled in a separate article titled, “BINDI OR TILAK MARK ON THE FOREHEAD-INDIAN OR HINDU?
