Cīvara ala kāsāva

Post by bhante dhamma » Fri Sep 06, 2019 5:53 am

Ajegucchaṃ vimuttehi,
surattaṃ arahaddhajaṃ;
Jigucchissanti kāsāvaṃ,
odātesu samucchitā.

They’ll love white clothes,
And they’ll detest the deep-dyed ochre robe,
The banner of the arahants,
Which is worn without disgust by the free.
Th 17.1

Not sure how the deep dyed is inferred there but anyways I was wondering if any monastics or lay people even had any tips to share with dying cloth robes?

Kāsāva as per pts entry ochre is per Google a clay sandy colour,
I personally prefer darker robes, as it is more calming to the senses
Couldn't upload image?
