Since I did not receive any responce so far I would to give the explanation my self. The Potu which is situated just above the years is a vital joint and tapping this spot crea5s a small shock in the brain which causes to change your line of thinking from the present to that of your desire

At the risk of sounding like a complete ignoramus, are you referring to a Vaishnavite tradition?
I am assuming it to be so, since I have never done this or seen anyone do this :think:
