MOST REV. PEDRO LOPEZ QUINTANA

APOSTOLIC NUNCIO IN INDIA

 

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

 

Apostolic Nuncio Archbishop Pedro Lopez Quintana’s Visit to Vasai

Archbishop Pedro Lopez Quintana, the apostolic Nuncio to India visited the Diocese of Vasai on the 1st to 4th of October 2005. On this occasion, an Interreligious Dialogue meeting was organized at Jeevan Darshan Kendra – the Pastoral Centre of

Diocese of Vasai… Ladies of the Hindu Swadhyaya movement accorded the Archbishop a traditional welcome.

A photograph by Amey Mansabdar in the DNA news agency story, Mumbai, October 3, 2005, shows the prelate sporting a “tilak” on his forehead, apparently the outcome of the “traditional [Hindu] welcome” accorded him by the “Ladies of the Hindu Swadhyaya movement”.

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?
