Disciple: What do they wear?Sri Chinmoy: Usually fairies like many colours. They like gaudy clothes, all different colours: green, red, black. But angels don't like gaudy colours. They like subtle, ethereal, delicate colours. Their beauty is very ethereal, simple, shining. If you see an angel, you really feel something. But if you see a fairy, it is like going and mixing with a child.
