Abstract The article provides some insights into the custom of potu and in the attitude of Christians towards that custom in Malaysia. The Tamil term potu has been defined as a spot usually affixed on the forehead, right between the eyebrows or a little above. In order to help Christians make a conscientious decision about the matter, two biblical principles are explored. This article also provides some aspects of pastoral polarity within the Christian community.
