    • Thank you prabhuji, for such a wonderful explanation. But how does one wear it on forehead? in kerala, I have seen people wearing chandan, but thats a simple straight line on ur forehead. How does one wear this tilak? BY ur explanation, I can understand that it is important for all krishna devotees to wear. but I have also seen that not all people wear it. I had been to Iskcon many times and I have witnessed this. Please correct me if i am wrong.
