What aura?Hanzze wrote:Practicing lay people in the Theravada tradition are wearing white clothes. Why do one use white. Fore sure it makes one more aware and also from viewed from an aura perspective (fine substantial) it is beneficial.

Its mentioned a few times in the suttas where lay people either came to the Buddha wearing white, or possibly, instructed to come to the Buddha dressed in white.Hanzze wrote:Where does it come from?

one experience a different feeling while wearing white. Others are also taking a different notice from somebody wearing white.
If you had wear white, you would know that it is very difficult to keep it clean and to wash it. If you try to not harm (by destroying life in the water - many precepts for monks refer to this danger) it is difficult with white. Also to produce white is less times harmless.
Further it will hinder one to make worldly tasks. Even cooking or making firewood or sit down on the ground is complicate.
With white closes one needs to be more aware than in saffron clothes.
