Also Known as Sacred Thread, Mauli, Moli, Raksha Sutra, Kalava or Pachranga Dhaga.
Mauli Thread usage in Puja & Havan
Mauli thread is an integral part of both Puja and Havan ceremonies in Hinduism. It is a sacred thread worn during religious or spiritual activities to symbolize protection and blessing from the divine. Wearing Mauli thread during puja brings peace, prosperity, purity, and holiness to the worshiper and their family.
The Mauli thread is made of cotton yarn with three knots, symbolic of Lord Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva – the trinity gods of Hinduism – each representing different aspects of life such as creation, preservation, and destruction, respectively. The red color denotes strength, while white signifies calmness; these colors bring good luck to the wearer.
