:: The Use of Violet/Purple
Violet / Purple
Combining the stable and calming aspects of blue with the mystical and spiritual qualities of purple, Blue Iris satisfies the need for reassurance in a complex world, while adding a hint of mystery and excitement." Purple has a special, almost sacred place in nature: lavender, orchid, lilac, and violet flowers are often delicate and considered precious. Because purple is derived from the mixing of a strong warm and strong cool color it has both warm and cool properties. A purple room can boost a child's imagination or an artist's creativity. Too much purple, like blue, could result in moodiness.

Good Purple

* Purple cow - something remarkable, eye-catching, unusual
* Purple prose - exaggeration, highly imaginative writing (also has negative connotations)

Bad Purple

Nansen said: "If you try to study, you will be far away from it" Joshu asked: "If I do not study, how can I know it is the path?" Nansen said: "The path does not belong to the perception world, neither does it belong to the non perception world. Cognition is a delusion and no cognition is senseless. If you want to reach the true path beyond doubt, place yourself in the same freedom as sky. You name it neither good nor not-good" At these words Joshu was enlightened.

Click to enlargeJanism
Although the majority of Indians who are religious continue to follow the Hindu path, there are also several other religions that are not based on the Vedas. One of this is Janism. Its gentle ascetic teachings offer valuable clues to our global survival. It has no personal saviour and no Creator God as First Cause.
Janism is reviving, for it is becoming recognized as a complete and fruitful path with the potential for uplifting human awareness with high standards of personal ethics. Janism has never condones war, the aste system, or the killing of animals. The Jainism's major teacher is Mahavira ('The Great Hero'). Jain teachings recognized that we as humans are imperfect, but hold out the promise that through strict control of our senses and thoughts we can attain perfection, freedom and happiness. The individual's higher conscious or soul, known as Jiva, can save itself by discovering it's own earthly life (this may take many incarnations). Like the Hindus and Buddhists, believe we are reborn again and again until we are finally free from 'samsara', wheel of birth and death and life's up's and down's.
Jains have a belief of karma, which is that karma is actually subtle matter - minute particles that we accumulate as we act and think. Mahavira said that karma was like a cast of clay that weighed down the soul. Jainism is practiced mostly by monks and nuns.
The principles of the Jains are:
1. Ahimsa - non-violence/to cause no harm to any living being
2. Paragraph - non-possessiveness/non attachment to things, people and places.
3. Satya - Truthfulness
4. Brahmacharya - Chastity/not to indulge in sexual activity.
5. Asteya - non-stealing
