WOMEN THEOLOGIANS OF THE ECCLESIA OF WOMEN IN ASIA [EWA] WEAR A HINDU MARK IN THE CENTER OF THEIR FOREHEADS

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?
