Sutra, more than just a thread. This Devi Abhaya Sutra is a specially consecrated cotton thread. When it is tied around the wrist, it can be supportive to remove one's fear and fulfill ambitions.
Process and Uses
Women wear it on the left wrist, men on the right. It must be worn for a minimum of 40 days. It can be removed by untying or burning it (please do not cut it) and disposed of either by burying it in wet soil, or burning it and applying the ashes from your vishudhi chakra (pit of the throat) down to the anahata chakra (just below the sternum).
