“The ancients conceived the spirit of man to correspond with the color blue, the mind with yellow, and the body with red. Heaven is therefore blue, earth yellow, and hell–or the underworld–red.
In India certain of the gods–usually attributes of Vishnu–are depicted with blue skin to signify their divine and supermundane constitution.
According to esoteric philosophy, blue is the true and sacred color of the sun. The apparent orange-yellow shade of this orb is the result of its rays being immersed in the substances of the illusionary world.”
