Ramanujam Thiruvadigale saranam:

I gather from ancient scriptures that both men and women used to wear the 
kumkum as a portrayal of the third eye that could be awakened by SPiritual 
convcentration and devotion. I would be extremely interested in knowing the 
actual significance and meaning of men wearing the srichuvarnam. Being a 
resident of the United States, i would be extremely curious to know its 
significance as it would help me explain my wearing it to fellow workers. 
Thank you for your patience to read the question. Forgive my ignorance.
