Now this powerful vibhuti here, when you take it with your ring finger, unknowingly you will drop some karma right here. The whole tradition was built like that - whichever way, you must be slowly moving towards your liberation. - Sadhguru
The Sacred ash, Vibhuti is traditionally applied to the forehead between the eyebrows. Other areas that vibhuti is sometimes applied is the throat and to the solar plexus area where the left and right rib cages meet, just below the heart. Vibhuti is individually in small copper vessels and then left in the Dhyanalinga temple for a period of time wherein it is specially blessed by Dhyanalinga.
