The spiritual meaning of colours – Part 25: LIGHT


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 LIGHT. 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:

“The dance of Light awakens the wings of life to soar into the Silence of the Absolute Supreme.”

Animal Kingdom 12 – Cow: Light


Sri Chinmoy wrote a fascinating little compendium on the spiritual meaning of animals which was published by Agni Press in 1973. Today’s poem features the cow.

Cow: Light

Cow, my cow,
You have the light,
You are the light.
Therefore you alone have the right
To guide and lead
The entire creation’s height.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
