The sun is the soul of universe. Sunlight is the basic source of all life and energy on earth. Sun-worship and the love of basking in the Sun date back to antiquity. COLORS ARE ALL AROUND US. WE ARE BATHED IN IT EVERY WHERE, BUT IF WE ARE UNAWARE OF IT AND UNCONSCIOUS OF ITS INFLUENCE, ITS WEALTH IS NOT PROPERLY UTILIZED.

"Let there be light" was one of the first comments of the creator of the universe. In the year 1666 Issac Newton discovered that sunlight is a combination of Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue and Violet colors of the rainbow(VIBGYOR), which he called a spectrum. The different visible colors are due to their different wavelengths. The three colors on one extreme i.e. Violet, Indigi and Blue are cooling and soothing in nature. The three colors on other extreme i.e. Yellow, Orange and Red are hot and stimulating in nature. The green color in the middle of spectrum is a harmonizer color. It maintains the equilibrium between the hot and cold colors.


It is the property of light. It is the ability to receive the vibrations of the light through the eyes. It is the most attenuated form of energy. Color is all around us. We are bathed in it everywhere, but if we are unaware of it and unconscious of its influence, its wealth is not properly utilized. The trinity of colors , The Red, Yellow, and Blue , finds representation in the three great elements of hydrogen, carbon and oxygen.
