Forehead designs, called tilakas, show a sadhu’s religious and sectarian affiliations and range from a simple daub of color to complex designs involving the entire face. The application of a tilaka is usually done at the start of each day after bathing as a way to sanctify the body and prepare it to receive the divine.
