    Default Re: Thali -changing the thread reg.

    BJK, since no one responded, I guess I can share what I keep doing. I have a gold chain for my thali but the actual sutra's are tied on with a yellow thread. So, I nede to change that every couple of months so that the yellow thread doesn't break. I do it on a Saturday after taking head-bath. Make sure its not-that-time-of-the-month for you and you are good to go. The old yellow threads, I bury near my Tulsi plant.
    I am not sure if its the right way to do, but I had been doing this since 3 years (from the time I got married).

    Hi P45857,

    Welcome to Indusladies. While using gold chain, it is always considered auspicious to have the Thali and other thali accessories in yellow thread. We are not supposed to cut that thread. Instead plait it in both the ends where it joins the gold chain. This will shorten the length of the thread.

    Also while changing the thread, we should not cut it. Maximum try using your finger nails to remove the knot. You can place this used thread on a neem tree.

    thank you mam. Even I had the doubt that we should not cut the thread, but again plaiting the long thread also will be cumbersome isn't it

    Hello everybody

    I do agree with p45857. I was also told by mum as not to cut it and to plait it. But it becomes too knotty and bulges under most of the modern outfits. So when my mom saw the practical difficulty she said it is ok to snip it a bit. So now i snip it after the knots.
