The overall appearance of an individual is generally decided by the clothes he wears. The modern youth, under the pretext of fashion, wear multicolored clothes, short, tightfitting clothes such as jeans, stretchable clothes, etc. This reflects a perverted dressing style. In simple words, a perverted dressing style is one that generates Raja-Tama-predominant vibrations. Such a dressing style makes a man’s intelligence depraved, a slave to evil tendencies. He comes under the control of the six foes, such as lust, anger, and becomes a victim to attacks of negative energies. As against this, wearing sāttvik clothes enables the wearer to imbibe Chaitanya, thereby making his mind and intellect sāttvik. Besides helping attain good character and wisdom, it also helps in gaining protection from attacks of negative energies.
