The spiritual meaning of colours – Part 8: DESTRACTION

destruction2

Colours are essential for our life. As an artist himself Sri Chinmoy loved colours but he also had a feeling for which qualities come from particular colours. In 1974 the first edition of his book “Colour Kingdom” was published, presenting 52 different shades of colours together with the quality and one poem about the subject. In the next couple of weeks we will present you this series and today we continue with DESTRACTION. Feel free to make the color larger (by clicking on it). A video summary of all  52 colours and their meaning (Length: 44:49 min) can be found here: vimeo.com.

“The distraction of the vital is at times necessary for the purification of the heart and for the perfection of life.”
