Question: Which is better: the black and white or the coloured transcendental?

Sri Chinmoy: No comparison! The black and white is far better than the coloured. The black and white has a better consciousness. It is not that the coloured one is lower than the black and white; no. Better here means easier to approach.

Even when I wear just white, not only does it look beautiful and majestic, but immediately I see a kind of compassion flowing from me, although white is the colour of divinity, the colour of the Divine Mother, the colour of purity. Whoever is around me is bound to feel that loving compassion when I am wearing white, even though white is not the colour of compassion.
