    Mehndi Or Indian Henna Tradition



    [Mehndi or menhdi is the application of henna as a temporary form of skin decoration in India, as well as by expatriate communities from the country. The word mehndi is derived from the Sanskrit word mendhikā. The use of mehndi and turmeric is described in the earliest Vedic ritual books.

Vedic customs are meant to awaken the [inner light] and so the gold of the inner Sun has an important symbolic function]. – Wikipedia
