The Brahmin applied a white chandan mark signifying purity, as his profession was of a priestly or academic nature. The Kshatriya applied a red Kumkum mark signifying valour as he belonged to warrior races. The vaishya wore a yellow kesar or turmeric mark signifying prosperity as he was a businessman or trader devoted to creation of wealth. The Sudra applied a black bhasma.

The absence of a TILAK on the forehead is compared to a house without a well, a person without any clarity in life, a body that is unhealthy and a cow that does not produce milk. . It is at the Ajna Chakra, the space between the two eyebrows that the TILAK has to be applied. This is because applying the tilak here not only brings out its spiritual benefits, but also provides a cooling effect. Sandal paste as a TILAK also brings great medicinal value and reduces the heat you experience when concentrating. Whereas cow milk gives memory and strength to the body and can be digested easily. It also gives luster to the body, is a food that has three types of proteins and provides the body with calcium and phosphorus. Curds have cream, butter and ghee, which increase memory while eliminating heat in the body. Ghee provides strength, increases the life span, eyesight and reduces heat in the body. Ayurveda states that food should be always eaten with ghee, which also adds luster to the body. In Ayurvedic science, honey is effective in neutralizing the effects of any poisonous material that may unknowingly enter the body. It also helps inhibiting vomiting sensation, provides great energy and is great for the eyes. It is especially beneficial to anemic people as it is a source of iron, calcium and phosphorus. So it can be seen that the TILAK offer not only spiritual benefits to devotees, but also very much beneficial to the latent wisdom of a person.
