Spiritual meaning of colours – Part 37: Purity & Divinity


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 PURITY and DIVINITY. 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.

“God stands between man’s fully-blossomed purity and Divinity’s fully-envisioned Reality.”

What is a true Disciple?

One book that Sri Chinmoy treasured a lot is called “A True Disciple”. It is the 1,209th book, published by Agni Press in 1998. With 66 short poems Sri Chinmoy illumines the theme from the point of view of a realised soul. The book is like a compendium that offers us some insight thoughts we can use every day in our spiritual life. Here are a few examples:

A true disciple
Is the divine pride
Of his Master’s heart.

The Master knows
That his true disciple
Is not only available,
But also serviceable
around the clock.

A true disciple
Knows that his Master
Has no will of his own.
God’s Will
Is his Master’s will.

A true disciple
Knows that his Master’s heart
Is his only home.

– Sri Chinmoy
