Prabhashvara is the color of the aura of Gautama Buddha. The actual spectrum of his aura consists of five colors:

  • 'nila' ( sapphire blue)
  • 'pita' ( golden yellow)
  • 'lohita' ( crimson)
  • 'odata' ( white)
  • 'manjesta' ( scarlet)

The mixture of those five colors is believed to be Prabhashvara but it is depicted as separate strips of the five colors.
