The tilaka (Sanskrit: तिलक) is a mark worn usually on the forehead, sometimes other parts of the body such as neck, hand or chest. Tilaka may be worn daily or for rites of passage or special religious occasions only, depending on regional customs.
The term also refers to the Hindu ritual of marking someone’s forehead with a fragrant paste, such as of sandalwood or vermilion, as a welcome and expression of honour when they arrive.
he tilak is a mark created by the application of powder or paste on the forehead. Tilakas are vertical markings worn by Vaishnavites. The Vaishnava tilaka consists of a long vertical marking starting from just below the hairline to almost the end of one’s nose tip, and they are also known as Urdhva Pundra. It is intercepted in the middle by an elongated U. There may be two marks on the temples as well. This tilaka is traditionally made with sandalwood paste.
The other major tilak variant is often worn by the followers of Shiva, known by the names of Rudra-tilak and Tripundra.It consists of three horizontal bands across the forehead with a single vertical band or circle in the middle. This is traditionally done with sacred ash from fire sacrifices.

Akshat is raw unbroken rice washed or sprinkled with water. Akshat is a Sanskrit/Hindi word which means unbroken or unending. It is a symbol of prosperity and longevity. That is why it is used in blessings.
It is an integral part of worship items and without it worshiping may not be in a proper way. In almost all regions of India, it is used in one way or another for worshiping or on the occasions of weddings, “Upnayans” and other “Sanskaras“. Along with “Durva” (Doob grass) and turmeric powder Akshat is sprinkled over the couple after the wedding as an act of blessings and so is done in “Upnayans” (जनेऊ) when it is sprinkled over the “Barua” (The boy whose “Upnayan Sanskara” is being performed).
