Also known as Shiv Chandan Powder or Shiv Sandal Powder.
Chandan tika powder is a special powder used in pujas and havans. The powder is usually white or yellow, and its use dates back to ancient times. It is prepared from the wood of the Chandan tree, which is known to possess sacred properties.
Shiv Chandan tika powder can be applied on the forehead of devotees during puja or havan rituals as a mark of blessing from God. This ritual has been practised for centuries by Hindus all over India, with many believing that this blessing brings good luck and prosperity into their lives. The powder also helps purify the mind and body for religious ceremonies, making it an integral part of Hindu worship practices.
