Significance of Wearing Bangles as per Hindu Tradition

Significance of Wearing Bangles as per Hindu Tradition .....
Bangles are a type of ornament worn by women in India. Also called Kangan or Chudi in Hindi, Valayal in Tamil, Gaaju in Telugu, Bale in Kannada. Bangles are part of traditional Indian jewelry. In India, bangles are very popular and with growing fashion trends, have become a highly popular in their various designs and forms. They are usually worn in pairs by women, one or more on each arm.
Most Indian women prefer wearing either gold or glass bangles or combination of both. Inexpensive Bangles made from plastic are slowly replacing those made by glass, but the ones made of glass are still preferred at traditional occasions such as marriages and on festivals.
Bangles hold great value in Hinduism and tradition. It is considered inauspicious for a woman to have bare arms. Traditionally, married Hindu women always weary bangles around their wrists.
Today, the modern day women may not wear bangles with their daily attire, but only on occasions and festivals. This is because of them, bangles have a very sentimental value. In fact, to the Hindu woman, the bangle is not only an ornament, but also an important part of womanhood and honor.
A single bangle worn by a man is called a Kada or Kara (steel or iron bangle). Kada is a circular shaped bangle having religious significance for Sikhs, and is made from iron, white metal or gold.

Effects of plastic and glass bangles: 
Plastic bangles : Plastic bangles are Raja-Tama-predominant. Hence, Raja-Tama-predominant vibrations in the environment are attracted to such bangles and are absorbed by the woman who wears them. As a result, there is a possibility of the woman experiencing distress such as pressure on the head or body, fatigue etc. This explains why one feels distress while looking at plastic bangles.
Glass bangles : Glass bangles have the Sattva component, Devi Principle and Chaitanya (Divine consciousness) in them. Due to these, sattvik and Chaitanya-predominant waves in the environment are attracted to the glass bangles. In addition, due to the sound generated by the glass bangles, the negative energies back off. This explains why one feels good looking at glass bangles.
It is evident from this experiment that it is more beneficial for a woman to wear glass bangles, rather than plastic bangles. Out of ignorance of this science, today many women wear plastic bangles. Fashion is also one of the reasons for this. Some women wear plastic bangles because the glass bangles break often. In doing this, they deprive themselves of the benefit that is obtained from wearing glass bangles, and harm themselves.

Benefits of sound waves created by glass bangles
Due to the subtle weapons emitted from the sound waves of the bangles, the motor organs of the woman are protected.
The Sattva component of the woman’s motor organs increases.
A sheath of waves of Kriya-Shakti (Energy of Action) emitted by the bangles is generated around the woman’s body and she is protected from the negative energies.
Shakti-tattva (Divine Energy Principle) is activated in the woman and her body sheaths are purified; similarly, the premises too is purified.
Due to the movement of the bangles, the woman’s Raja component increases. This Rajacomponent activates the Adishakti-tattva (Primal Energy Principle) in the woman’s body. The woman’s body benefits from the awakened Shakti-tattva, helping in purifying her vital body and mental body sheaths. As the waves of Adishakti spread into the atmosphere, the Raja-Tamaparticles in the premises disintegrate and the premises gets purified.
The subtle process of how one is protected from negative energies by wearing glass bangles is as follows :
Due to the union of action waves present in the bangles, they are charged with the waves of Kriya-Shakti.
Due to the touch of the waves of Kriya-Shakti, the Surya-nadi (Sun channel) of the woman is activated.
Waves of Shakti are emitted into the atmosphere from the Surya-nadi.
Due to the waves of Kriya-Shakti emitted by the bangles, a rapidly moving protective sheath of Raja waves is generated around the woman’s body which protects her from negative energies present in the atmosphere.

The bangles are worn on each hand in a specific number. As a result, a specific Shakti is created.
Number of
bangles Type of Shakti generated
3 Tarak
6 Tarak-Marak
8 Marak-Tarak
12 Marak

Importance of girls wearing three, or less bangles : 
Shakti is present in young unmarried girls in an unmanifest form. They also have less amount of sanskars (impressions) in them. Vibrations of Tarak-Shakti are active in girls. By wearing three or less bangles, a slight inertia indicating sound is created in the bangles. Due to this sound, the girl gets the strength to perform a task.
The Science underlying wearing of more bangles by a newly married woman : Marak(Destroyer) waves are created by the sound of the bangles worn in larger numbers by a newly married woman. With the help of these waves, the newly married woman is protected from the evil-eye and attacks of negative energies.

Various colours of bangles and their features
The Vibrations of the glass bangles change according to their colour.
A). Green glass bangles : Green depicts continuous speed or pace that is Chetna, through the medium of the Kriya-Shakti .That is why trees are green. Kriya-Shakti in the Universe is attracted to the green particles in the leaves. Similar benefits are obtained by a woman who wears green bangles.
Wearing of green bangles by married women is indicative of their chastity. This is symbolic of worshipping the manifest form of Shakti with its ornaments. Waves of Devi (Female Deity) Principle are active in the green bangles. These waves are absorbed by the wrists and spread to the entire hand. Due to the sattvik component, Devi Principle and Chaitanya in the bangles, a protective sheath is created around the wrists and fingers, and they are protected from negative energies.
The subtle process occurring due to the green bangles :
Particles of Anand (Bliss) and Shakti spread into the body of the woman, through the bangles.
B). Red glass bangles : The Marak-tattva from the waves in the form of Kriya-Shakti of the Adishakti present in the Universe is attracted to the bangles worn by women. Due to the red colour of the bangles, there is an increase in the proportion of attraction of the Marak-tattva of the Adishakti. There are many shades of red, such as dark-red, blood-red, copper-red, brownish-red etc. Depending on every colour, there is a change in their vibrations and effects.
Some women wear shiny green bangles with designs on them, while some wear the ones without any designs on them. Raja-Tama-predominant vibrations are emitted by these green bangles with designs. As a result, lustful thoughts or thoughts of fame are created in the woman’s mind. Due to the golden designs on the bangles, obstacles are created in the absorption of the Divine Principle in the bangles. Even in the bangles without designs, the Divine Principle is attracted only in a small proportion due to their shiny colour. It will be clear from this, that the golden designs and the shiny colour do not give the benefit of the Divine Principle. Instead of such bangles, one should wear bangles without designs on them and which have a smooth surface.

Why wearing a watch on one hand and bangles on the other is inappropriate ?
The subtle sound emitted by the watch attracts negative energies. As a result, by wearing a watch instead of bangles, there is a possibility of the woman getting distressed by negative energies.

Reason for the sudden cracking or breaking of bangles:
Through the glass bangles, spiritual healing takes place for a woman. In this, women who are affected by negative energies have to face various kinds of distress.
Not feeling like wearing bangles:
Getting a fever or other physical distress upon wearing bangles
Despite wearing tight bangles, they're slipping out by themselves
Bangles breaking frequently
Bangles breaking unexpectedly, causing injury to the hand and due to this the woman not being able to wear bangles etc.
Many women would have experienced that bangles unexpectedly develop cracks, that is, break without any reason. Mantriks (sorcerers), that is, powerful negative energies from the fourth region of Patal (Hell region) transmit black energy with great speed. This transmission is one that causes an impact. The speed creates sound. When a bangle comes into contact with this sound, it unexpectedly cracks. When a bangle breaks without any reason, it indicates a battle between powerful negative energies and the ornaments. Sometimes, when one is not even aware of the breaking of a bangle, it is due to the negative energy breaking it.

Reason for not wearing a cracked or a broken bangle, as per the spiritual science
Broken bangles create distressing vibrations that could cause an impact. There is a possibility of negative energies getting attracted to such bangles. As a result, the possibility of distress of negative energies for the woman also increases.

Reason for negative energies attacking the bangle
When a woman wears a bangle, a kind of void is created around her wrist. Due to this void, this medium is helpful in spiritual healing through the Akash-tattva (Absolute Ether Element), that is, the healing at the Nirgun level. Waves of the Divine Principle are also attracted to the sound caused by wearing the bangles. These waves are spread into the body of the woman through the bangles. This enhances the Sattva component in a woman who wears the bangles. This increase in Sattva component is distressing for negative energies. Negative energies attack the bangles and create a situation where the woman is not able to wear bangles.
The Importance of wearing bangles in Hindu Dharma is an important Achar (Conduct). Abiding by this Conduct, a woman gets various spiritual experiences of Shakti, Chaitanya, Anand (Bliss) etc.

Gold bangles
Various types of gold bangles are found. These traditional bangles also have special designs on them.
A flat gold bangle or patali. This bangle is thicker and broader as compared to glass bangles.
Gold bangle or Swarnakankan. Its breadth is similar to that of glass bangles. It is also known as ‘Bilwar’.
Today is a little broader and rounded than a patali. A specific type of design is engraved on it.
Gota are thick solid bangles without any design. They are worn at both the ends after wearing bangles.
If the design on the gold bangles is sattvik, then there are good and beneficial effects. If the design is not sattvik, then there is distress too upon wearing such bangles.

Effects of wearing a gold toda :
Chaitanya is activated in the toda.
This Chaitanya is transmitted into the body of the woman who wears the toda.
A spiral of Divine Energy (Shakti) is activated in the toda.
Similar subtle level effects take place upon wearing other gold bangles.

Marriage - While girls in traditional Indian society are allowed to wear bangles, married women are generally expected to wear bangles. The jewelry is primarily associated with matrimony, signifying marriage in the same way that the Western wedding ring does. After the wedding, the woman continues to wear her bangles as a charm of safety and luck for her husband, and after a Hindu woman's husband dies, she breaks her glass wedding bangles in an act of mourning.

Bangles and Honeymoon – During an Indian wedding, the bride tries to wear the smallest glass bangles. She is helped by her best friend or sister to do this using scented oil. It’s believed that smaller bangles symbolize a happy and loving marriage and a wonderful honeymoon.

Bangles and Husband and Luck – A married Indian woman is required to wear bangles (green or red depending on which region they belong to) on a day to day basis because bangles are a symbol of safety, marriage and luck for their husbands. Sudden breaking of glass bangles is considered a sign of danger or an unpleasant incident involving the husband.

Conclusion : The wearing of bangles by women as advised by Dharma is a practice that goes a long way in increasing her vital energy and protecting her against negative energies.
