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 start today with AUSTERITY. 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 Color according to Sri Chinmoy is Pantone number 486. This information is contained in a new reprint edition by Perfection-Glory Press, Augsburg, 2014.
