The evil eye is a superstitious curse or legend believed to be cast by a malevolent glare. Many cultures believe that receiving the evil eye will cause misfortune or injury.
Eye-shaped talismans or amulets often blue in color, created to protect against the evil eye through apotropaic magic, are also frequently called “evil eyes”.
Older iterations of the symbol were often made with ceramics or clay, however, following the production of glass beads in the Mediterranean region in approximately 1500 B.C.
The idea expressed by the term causes many different cultures to pursue protective measures against it, with around 40% of the world’s population believing in it.
Decorations with eye-like symbols are a common sight in many regions and have become a popular choice of souvenir with tourists.
What is the meaning of Evil Eye?
The evil eye is a term used to describe the process of being afflicted by Raja-Tama vibrations from another person, which means that the other person can afflict us with the evil eye intentionally or unintentionally.
In today’s competitive and materialistic world, most people have personality defects and vices such as jealousy, hatred, hunger for publicity, etc. Raja-Tama vibrations generated from these vices have a spiritually distressing effect on us. This is what is termed as getting afflicted by the evil eye.
The evil eye can be cast on anyone or anything. This includes an individual, an animal, plants, as well as inanimate objects.
In some situations, an individual or negative energy gets bad thoughts about an individual, animal, or object or feels envious of their success. The negative vibrations generated affect the individual, animal, or object
One lady experienced that after participating in a dance competition and achieving first place, she fell ill and became bedridden the very next day. After her mother performed a ritual to remove the evil eye, she immediately recovered. As she had achieved first place in the competition, the others competing against her had had envious thoughts about her and this had a direct effect on her.
