We asked you which your favourite celebrity saree was and now we’re giving you a little more inspiration.. only this time, we’re going the spiritual way.
What’s your style? Sadhu-chic, Monk-mania or Blue-spirit? Completely independent of your religious choices, we believe that certain colours can have a spiritual effect on your daily personality.
WHY SADHUS WEAR SAFFRON (and what the colour stands for)
Saffron represents fire and as impurities are burnt by fire, this colour symbolizes purity. It also represents religious abstinence. It is the colour of holy men and ascetics who have renounced the world. Wearing the colour symbolizes the quest for life.
WHY MONKS WEAR MAROON (and what the colour stands for)
The maroon colored dye was considered cheap in Tibet. Since ordained peoples are to live a life free from attachment to material wealth, this cheap dye communicated the monk or nun’s commitment to their precepts. India has hot weather, and Tibet has cold. Consequently, Indian monks and nuns choose yellow, because it is a cool color, and Tibetan monks and nuns choose red or maroon, because it is a warm color.
WHY INDIAN GODS ARE BLUE (and what the colour stands for)
The creator has given the maximum blue to nature like the sky, oceans, rivers. The deity who has the qualities of bravery, determination and is of stable mind and depth of character is represented as blue coloured. Lord Rama, Lord Krishna and Goddess Kalit spent their life protecting humanity and destroying evil, hence they are coloured blue.
