(*) Mouli is a red cotton thread used as an element during religious ceremonies in India. This thread is believed to protect the person wearing it from evil. When tying the Mouli, 'mantras' are usually recited to invoke the spiritual power. Another significance is that it is tied at the time of making a resolution, at the beginning of the prayer ceremony. Symbolically, it is a reminder of the resolution. Mouli is tied on a man's right wrist and a woman's left wrist which represents the spiritual side of each respectively.
