The spiritual meaning of colours – Part 42: SINCERITY

sincerity

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 SINCERITY. 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.

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 rabitt.

Rabbit: Sincerity

Rabbit, my rabbit,
Your gold sincerity
Takes your soul to God-Goal.
Through you alone
God reveals His perfection-role
On Heaven-bound earth
With stupendous mirth.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
