Pressing these pressure points together activates the pressure points that helps one to remember that person concerned for a long time period.
2. Applying Tilak on forehead – The spot between the two eyebrows on the forehead is considered as a major nerve point in the human body. Applying tilak is believed to prevent the loss of energy and the red kumkum between the eyebrows is believed to retain that energy in the body and control various levels of concentrations.
3. Throwing coins in rivers – This practice is followed with a motive to attract good luck. Scientifically speaking, in the ancient times most of the currency used was made of copper unlike the stainless steel coins that are used today. Copper is a vital metal that is highly useful to the human body. Throwing these coins in rivers was a really great way to assure that we intake sufficient copper as a part of water because rivers were the only source of drinking water back then.
