Editor's note — Pantone(r) numbers

Sri Chinmoy chose the specific colours reproduced in this book from a Pantone® Colourchart, assigning each a different spiritual quality.

Since this edition of the book is printed digitally, the colours may be slightly different from the original Pantone® colours, which were reproduced by an offset printing process in the first edition in 1974.

The colours are identified by their Pantone® number, which are listed below.

The interested reader may find an exact replica of the colour Sri Chinmoy intended to describe.
