Holi Colours & Significance

Holi is all about colours, joy and excitement. The word colour is very much associated with this vibrant festival. Colours not only spruce the happiness meter of our life, but at the same time also gives us a vision to develop an individual perspective towards life. As nature is a spectrum of colours, our life, emotions and decisions are deeply surrounded and influenced by colours.

The tradition of playing colours started with Lord Krishna who himself is known for his colourful nature. The spirit of Holi is fulfilled only when people drench each other with colours. Chasing each other to apply colours and to be get coloured is the best element of this festival. It is the colours that rejuvenate the aura of spring festival, making the overall experience delightful and memorable.

Vibrant colours ranging from red to yellow and white to blue, feature unique value and significance.

  • Red: Red is a colour of love and passion. It is believed that it not only connects us from universal energies but also generates a feeling of strength. Goddess Durga, a warrior goddess and an epitome of power, is often associated with the colour red. On the one hand red incites fear while on the other; it stands for purity and hence brides usually wear red outfit on their wedding. We can also say that the colour represents splendour and opulence.
  • Blue: Blue signifies peace and happiness. It represents the vastness and depth of sky and water respectively. Water sustains life on earth and balances the ecosystem, hence colour blue also represents dynamism. Lord Krishna, who guided everyone towards the path of righteousness and devotion with his wisdom and intelligence, had a blue skin tone. He incepted the process of playing with colours with his beloved Radha and gopis.
  • Green: Green is a colour of nature. For any agricultural economy, like India, green symbolizes a new beginning, harvest, and happiness. It symbolizes nature and therefore considered as a manifestation of God.

  • Yellow: Yellow is the colour of brilliance and warmth. It is a very pious colour and is generally used in sacred and religious events. During marriage, family members of the bride and the groom apply haldi on their body. This haldi rasam is one of the integral part of any marriage that people follow with utmost dedication and love. Therefore, this colour in India is defined as a symbol of holiness.
  • White: White is meant for dignity, purity and serenity. It is pure and soothes the eye and hence spreads the message of peace. Many prominent and great gurus usually wear white as it is a representation of complete disconnection with the materialistic world.

There is an amazing saying that the colour is applied to each other in order to celebrate virtue over evil. The legendary story of Prahlad describes this wonderfully.
