Yes, there are different orders of the colors. The one which we use during the Purification of the 5 Elements at the beginning of every practice is taken by Kriya Tantra as Rinpoche has explained many times, i.e. blue, green, white, red, yellow.Fa Dao wrote:Thanks man..I knew that they represented the 5 elements, was just curious as to why I have seen so many different ones...they all had the 5 colors just not in the same order. Thought there might have been a reason why they were in different orders.
The correct order of the colors for Ati Guru Yoga is the following, starting from inside to outside: blue, green, red, yellow, white.
