The individual Lesyas are distinguished .as under according to the colours which the soul get: 1. krishna, black, 2. nila, dark-blue, 3. kapota, grey, 4. tejas, fiery, 5. padma, yellow or rose, 6. sukla, white.
The emotions and mentioned here are only the basic temperaments of the soul. A different degree of intensity is to be distinguished in each Lesya. It is, therefore, not surprising when the worst Lesyas are present even in high stages of development, when partial or complete self-discipline has already been attained. Lesyas characterize just only the emotional condition of a soul. The qualities which are described need not emerge in such a distinctive manner.
It must also be finally mentioned that a being has at its birth at first the Lesya which it had at the time of death in the preceding existence; the Lesya can be changed later.
