Warding off the evil eye

Just as good luck is necessary for things to happen, bad luck should also be kept away!
Different cultures have different ways of warding off the evil eye.

The Turks have a NAZAR Boncugu an amulet made of glass that wards off the "Evil Eye"

In my city of Mumbai, particularly on the crossroads, little children come up with green chillies, a lemon and a piece of coal strung together so that it can be hung from the cars or near the entrance to your home so that all evil spirits are kept at bay.

The fierce looking mask that will definitely drive away evil spirits that dare enter any home bearing this
This Hamsa amulet is from Jerusalem. The Hamsa or Hand of Miriam protects Jewish children from the Evil eye. The Muslims in this region have a similar Hand of Fatima with inscriptions in Arabic to ward off the evil eye.

  1. I have been doing some research on the evil eye as I work on creating some blogs for the evil eye such as and I never knew that it was such a big part of life in Mumbai or that region of the world altogether.

    I came across a few articles on another website as well and I am amazed at the power of the evil eye throughout. I guess we all love a superstition
