What is the significance of the color of the monk's robes?The "yellow robes" that the bhikkhus are wearing are named "kāsāyāni vatthāni".
And suprisingly, कषाय kaṣāya also means: stain or impurity or sin cleaving to the soul - (in the Chandogya Upaniṣad.) - Is that a coincidence? - I don't think so.
I'm not asking in reference to different Buddhist traditions having different standard colors (e.g. black for Zen, bright saffron for Thai Theravada city monks, maroon for Tibetan, etc.).
I'm asking about the significance of the color itself, especially in regard to the above quoted post.
Thank you for your replies.
