Wearing Tika (तिलक) as a Bhakta of Lord Sri Jesus

If you disobey the Word of God, even though you have stopped wearing tika (तिलक), you have become as one who is not a Bhakta (devotee and disciple) of Lord Sri Jesus.

If those who wear tika (तिलक) keep the requirements of God's Word, will they not be regarded as Bhaktas of Lord Sri Jesus?

The one who wears tika (तिलक) and yet obeys God's Word will condemn you who, even though you stopped wearing tika (तिलक), are a lawbreaker.

A man is not a Bhakta of Lord Sri Jesus if he is only one outwardly, nor is devotion and discipleship merely outward and physical.

No, a man is a Bhakta of Lord Sri Jesus if he is one inwardly; and devotion and discipleship is of the heart, by the Spirit, not by any written code.

Such a man's praise is not from men, but from God.

(Inspired by the argument of Paul the Apostle from Romans 2:25-29)


  1. What is a tika? Is it that bindi-like thing the men do with paint?

    1. Tika or "Tilak" is worn by both men and women. There are several different kinds. There is the ornamental "bindi" that women wear for beautification; there is sindoor (red powder) worn by women to signify marriage; then there are various kinds of ways of marking the forehead to signify blessing or devotion. Nepali's call these "tika".

  2. Lovely to find fellow Bhaktas of the Lord Sri Yesu!
    Many blessings
    Om namo Christaya!

    1. We are few and far between ...

      Jaya Mukteshwar Yeshu!

    2. Such a beautiful way to live in Him....
      every blessing Cody, peace and joy
