Interestingly, Moli Kalava is very believed to be sacred for Hindus. In fact, it is a part of every Hindu ceremony and havan. Moli Kalava is often used as an offering to the Hindu deities and then worn around the wrist after a ceremony or ritual is over. It is also observed that people wear Moli Kalava before the start of the puja ceremony, just after offering it to the Hindu deity.
The significance of Moli Kalava is such that it is offered as cloth to Hindu deities. And traditionally, the thread is wrapped around a copper Tumblr, fully filled with water. Also, the mouth of the Tumblr is decorated with five mango leaves and coconut, and is covered in red cloth. Therefore, this is offered to the Hindu deities before the start of any puja ceremony or ritual.
This sacred thread is, therefore, considered to be the connection between the soul and the God, and is worn to seek blessings from the almighty. At the same time, Moli Kalava is also believed to be Raksha Sutra, which means that it wards off evil eyes and offers protection to the wearer.
It must be noted that men and unmarried women wear Moli Kalava in their right hand, while married woman wear it in their left hand.
Scientifically, too, it is believed that tying the red sacred thread on the wrist helps regulate the body's blood circulation. At the same time, it also helps in purifying one's thoughts and turn them into positive ones.
