Sea and sky are both shades of blue, although they are truly colorless in their own right. The color blue represents the enormous expanse of space that permeates the cosmos and in which the universe has its origins and resides.
for e.g. VISHNU is the Sanskrit word for “all-pervading awareness,” and as a result, the color blue should be associated with him.
It is said in the Chandogya Upanishad that there is a relationship between the Absolute, also known as BRAHMAN, and limitless space.
As one of the most significant gods in the Hindu pantheon, Vishnu, together with Brahma and Shiva, is regarded a member of the holy trinity (Trimurti) of Sanatana Dharma. Vishnu is thought to be the creator of the universe.
As the preserver and guardian of humanity (Narayana), he also defends the order of things (Dharma), and when it is required, he arrives on Earth in many incarnations or avatars to battle demons and fiery monsters in order to maintain Cosmic Harmony.
Shiva (also known as “the fortunate one”) is regarded as one of the most important deities in Hinduism. Within the Hindu Trinity, which also includes Brahma and Vishnu, Shiva is referred to as ‘The Destroyer,’ and he is known as ‘The Destroyer’. Shiva is regarded as one of the great entities who created, protected, and transformed the cosmos, according to the Shaivism tradition.
He is one of the five comparable deities in the Panchayatana Puja of the Smarta style of Hinduism, and he is worshipped in the same manner. Shiva is commonly represented as Adiyogi, who is the patron deity of Yoga, meditation, and the arts, and who is also the patron god of the universe.
In most cases, he is venerated in the aniconic form of the lingam. Shiva is a pan-Hindu god who is extensively worshipped by Hindus across India, Nepal, and Sri Lanka. In the Shiva Traditions, Shiva is referred to as the primeval soul, the pure consciousness, and the Absolute Reality.
Krishna is a significant god in Hinduism, and he is the son of Vishnu. He is revered as Lord Vishnu’s eighth Avatar, and he is worshipped as such. He is the deity of compassion, kindness, and love, among other things.
Every year, on Krishna Janmashtami, according to the Lunisolar Hindu calendar, we commemorate His birth, which occurs in late August or early September according to the Gregorian calendar. When Lord Krishna was born, the end of the Dwapara Yuga and the beginning of the Kal Yuga were marked by the passage of time.
They are often shown in various hues of blue color, which is common among them. There aren’t many who understand why it is done. Some people just snort when they hear it. Because our Dharma depicts a god with a black complexion and a blue color, some have said that it is racist.
The Spiritual significance of Blue Color
Its relevance, on the other hand, is much more scientific and straightforward than anything else. As the saying goes, when we gaze up into the brightly lit sky, all we see is a clean blue blankest that covers the planet.
When we gaze at the water from the beach, it seems to be completely blue, and it is hard to discern the other end of the sea from the beginning. At the conclusion is the only thing we can see is the blue water, which is reminiscent of the boundless blue sky on the horizon in the distance.
As a result, blue represents infinity, because God may be found everywhere and is infinite. One cannot just withdraw blue from one’s surroundings without being noticed.
Hindu gods are often depicted in the color blue. The reason why Hindu gods are shown in blue is still a mystery, as is the origin of the color blue. There have been several interpretations, none of which are really valid in terms of providing the correct understanding.
Many of us are familiar with the notion of dashavatara, which refers to the 10 distinct incarnations of Lord Vishnu in various forms. In truth, Vishnu was also an incarnation of Brahman, also known as Paramatma or the Supreme Being. As it turns out, Lord Shiva was also an incarnation of Paramatma, which theoretically qualifies him to be considered an avatar as well.
When the Paramatma takes on the shape of a human being on Earth, he not only appears as a person, but he also possesses an avatar form that resembles a human. The avatar forms are the forms in which Hindus pray to deities such as Vishnu, Shiva, Rama, Krishna, and so on.
It was only a small group of highly selected human beings who were shown these avatar forms, all of whom were tremendous devotees of Paramatma in whatever form. It makes no difference whether their devotion was to a Hindu deity or to a formless god; what counts is that they were dedicated to something (bhakti).
All of the avatar shapes are painted in the color blue. As previously said, avatar is an incarnation of Paramatma, who is also known as the antaryami, which literally translates as “the one who dwells in every living thing and allows life,” which indicates that he is life.
Earth is the only planet on which life can be found, and it has a blue hue to it like no other. As a result, the avatar, which is a reincarnation on the planet Earth, is likewise blue, in order to educate humanity that Paramatma is life and that every living thing has a holy significance.
