Sanskrit mantras are chanted to purify the thread
It is told that positive energy is associated with the red thread (called as Moli Kalava) that you wear during rituals. Let us take a look on the reason behind the positive energy present in the thread. The main reason because of which the thread gets positive energy is the reciting of Sanskrit mantras while preparing the Moli Kalava for use. Some people perform knots while chanting the mantra (on the threads) so that the positive energy gets tangled to them. Therefore the thread worn by a person helps him / her in getting more positive energy – through them.
The thread is tied to your wrist while your palm faces upward
Make sure that your palm faces upward and not at all downward while tying the Moli Kalava got from gifts and crafts suppliers in India. The scientific reason behind it is that if you are facing your palm upward then the knots that you put while tying the thread will be coming on the area of your wrist that contains three veins – passing near the surface portion of your wrist. These veins are related to kapha, pitta and vatha. Therefore the thread has to be tied in such a way that these knots are put on that side through which the veins pass close to the surface area of your wrist – that is wrist area you see while the palm faces up.
Three knots are put while tying the thread
You have to make 3 knots while tying Moli Kalava around the wrist. This ensures that enough pressure is provided on the wrist area – where the veins pass near the surface area. This assists in having a better immune system & health and therefore helps in even having a longer life. Being able to prevent diseases makes sure that you have a better & longer life too. Therefore tie 3 knots and ensure that the Moli Kalava exert enough pressure on your upper part of the wrist area.
