Why does a coconut have exactly three holes?

 Cut a hole through one of the eyes or indentations of the coconut.[1]

  • A power hand drill is one of the easiest ways to cut a hole into the coconut, but if you do not have one, you could also use a corkscrew, screwdriver, or metallic skewer, instead.
  • Worst case scenario, you can use a hammer and a nail. Pound the nail into the coconut using the hammer. Then, using the back end of the hammer to lift the nail back out, creating a hole.
  • Create your hole in one of the three "eyes" of the coconut. These spots are the thinnest spot on the outer shell and the easiest to drill through.
  • It may help to hold the coconut on a non-slip surface, like a cutting board or kitchen towel, to prevent it from slipping around as you attempt to drill through it.

Why does a coconut have exactly three holes?

Coconut is called as Sriphal in Sanskrit. Sriphal means God's fruit. So, coconut is essentially the fruit of the God. Breaking a coconut symbolizes smashing ego and humbling yourself before God. Well, if you observe keenly, the coconut has exactly three holes - not less than three or more than three. Do you ever think about the significance of the three holes?

The three marks on the coconut are regarded as the three eyes of the lord Shiva. Some people also consider the three marks as Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwara. Allegedly, the black shell of coconut represents Lord Karthikeya, white coconut inside signifies Gauri and inside water indicates Ganga.

The coconuts jagged outside fibers look like hairs, and its round shape and the three eyes remind you of a face. For this reason, the coconut has been frequently used to represent the three eyes of Lord Shiva.
