This is picture of Deepa, our staff member. She got married on Sunday, 15th March. She is wearing special flowers on her face. They are Swallow wart and Galgota.
The swallow wart flowers are also called as Mandara. or giant milk weed. These flowers are offered to Lord Hanuman on Saturdays. Hanuman is deity of courage, so also the flower essence made form these flowers make one courageous. Now that, she is getting married, and uprooted from one place, going to become one with a new family, she will need inner courage. May be that is why, a garland made from Mandara used for her face decoration. Use Mandara flowers for courage!
