A mangalsutra is of utmost importance to a married woman in Hindu culture. Women who wear mangalsutras around their necks are said to be practising soubhagyalankar in Hinduism. In this context, Soubhagya refers to the woman’s marital status, while Alankar is adornment. The word “mangalsutra” in Hinduism is a combination of the words “mangal,” which means “auspicious,” and “sutra,” which means “thread” or “cord.”
Today, the initial cord and pendant of the mangalsutra have changed a lot. Now, more people prefer a gold mangalsutra, i.e., either the cord is made of gold, or the pendant is made of gold.
In this article, we will understand the significance of mangalsutras, take a look at their types and see some of the products among the vast collection of gold mangalsutras offered at Mia by Tanishq.
Significance of a Mangalsutra
In order to keep negative energy at bay and maintain good health, it is thought that the pendant should extend all the way to the woman’s Anahat Chakra, or heart chakra.
A mangalsutra’s two strings stand for the unity of Lord Shiva and Goddess Shakti as well as their core values. The ideas of Shiva and Shakti must be combined in order to live a good life. Shiva is the doer in this instance, and Shakti gives the power of his deeds. And in this way, karma turns into akarma and produces the intended Chaitanya-oriented outcome.
Black glass beads or Kala pota are used to make the mangalsutra chain. According to legend, black beads deter the evil eye. They are believed to deflect the bride’s and her family’s negative vibrations and bad energy and maintain the groom’s health and wealth.
