Bhagwa or the saffron color denotes renunciation or disinterestedness says Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan

Wearing saffron colour symbolizes the quest for Knowledge of Godhead.

The first recorded use of saffron as a color name in English was in 1200. It is considered as one of the important colour in Hinduism along with others such as red, blue and white, in which it is known as Bhagwa.

The color has some significance in Buddhism; it is worn by the monks of the Theravada tradition. It is also an important symbolic color in India, where it was chosen in 1947 as one of the three colors of the Indian flag after the nation gained its independence.

The color saffron is associated with the goddess of dawn (Eos in Greek mythology and Aurora in Roman mythology) in classical literature

THE SEVEN CHAKRAS: According to Dr Chandrashekhar, the seven primal colours are associated to seven chakras of our body. These are - Red, saffron/orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. Every colour has a different wavelength and has different impacts on our minds when we look at them and / or concentrate on them.

According to him, saffron chakra, also called Svadhishthana or the Sacral chakra is associated to one's colon, bladder, kidney, reproductive system and urinary bladder.

Buddhists also believe that orange is the colour of bliss as it is the amalgamation of red and yellow. Concentrating on the orange colour can yield multiple benefits in one’s life, both on the mental as well as physical plane.

Saints wear saffron and it isn’t just an unreasonable choice.
