“When one does not understand the sacred nature of the temple garment, the tendency is to treat it casually and regard it as just another piece of cloth.”

~Carlos E. Asay, Liahona, September 1999~

“There are four masonic markings in the modern temple garment. One on each breast, one on the navel, and one on the knee. These marks are meant to help the wearer remember the covenants made in the temple. Originally, these were cut into the fabric with a knife as the recipient bled. In this way, early Mormons reinforced the idea of strict obedience.”
