Style and spirituality are different from each other. Style means fashion, designer clothing and accessories which suit one’s personality or give them an attractive look. In the spiritual life there is hardly any space for style as most of the people think but that is not true. Style is just a way to express a person’s personality. People judge them by their style, way of their dressing, way of their walking etc. Not only from today’s world but Spiritual life is associated with the style since long. The people living a spiritual life irrespective of their religion may find them in a different colored clothes which suit their religion or express the color of their religion and style of their dress also seems different.
Spiritual life is not about colored cloths or style of your dress. If you notice different religions and their Dharama gurus or their saints they all have different kinds of dress. Dress of these saints denotes their thinking and their viewpoint towards spiritual life.
Saints or priests of all religion wear a dress which suit their religion. One can easily recognize any saint by his dress and one can also identify their religion by their dress. The style is strongly related to spiritual life. Spiritual life does not mean to live without colors or wear simple looking clothes. The style is associated with the spiritual life, the colors are also associated with our traditions and with our festival too.
For the Hindus, the colors are very important. The festival of Holi is of colors. In worshipping the Gods, the red color and haldi (mustard color) is used to put tilak on the God or the people. The Muslims find the black color auspicious for them. The Jains find orange, red, yellow, white green and black as auspicious as these are the colors of their flag. White is the color of the Christianity. They use white color mostly in their dress or other things. You can find the nuns in the whites. The Sikhs use different colors in their turbans. Every religion is related with the colors. No religion is left untouched by the colors.

Some people leave in the social life and enter into the world of spirituality and start living a spiritual life. They may have personal issues which they find difficult to solve or they don’t want to solve just run away from the situations. But whatever be the reason once you are involved in the spiritual life, it hardly matters what people think. Pursuing a spiritual life does not mean that you leave your style. Still the people live according to their thinking and their social background.
The time is over when people used to think that he will leave the society and become a priest and the people around him think that he may live a simple life without any style or fashion. Now a days the saints live their spiritual life in style and follow different fashions.
