"RANG"

Written below is personal experience and documented
THought cab be interacted, rejected/commented or accepted


In human contest
Cause "Duality"
"Inferiority"& "Superiority"
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/gurmat-vichaar/37643-rang.html
"Anxiety" & "Depression"

"Rang" word has many perspective in "GURU's BANI"

One perspective which relates to physical body color

"Gora" "white" / "Savla" or "Medium" / "Dark" or "Kaala"

European Asian and African has region relevance also


Many fall prey of racial discrimination.
"Melonine" chemical responsible for pigment color regulates tone with exposure to sunlight

Body color tone belongs to nature

"Body" needs limited exposure of light
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=37643

"Light" required inside body needs control for its biochemical balance

"Body" receiving more sunlight are dark in color

"Body" receiving medium sunlight are medium in color

"Body" receiving less sunlight are light in color

and has variance with region

If European moves to Asian and African Region

They have to use "Sun Creams" to protect there skin when exposed to
sunlight, even player use that.

When this natural activity is disrupted
it cause disease "Phulwari" or "White Pigmentation"

People who have racial discrimination and long for fair color
applying creams/ointments for fairness are unaware
about cause of nature

Kudrat Ke Sab Bande
Ek Noor Te Sab Jag Upjeya
Kaun Bhale Kaun Mande

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa
Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

Re: "rang"

ravneet_sb ji I highly recommend and suggest you pay attention to "Mahan Kosh" for posting in Gurmat Vichhar and then elaborate like above. For example,

ਰੰਗ/ Raang is described as,

Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Gurmukhi-Gurmukhi Dictionary (1) ਪ੍ਰਕਾਰ। (2) ਪ੍ਰੇਮ, ਲਗਨ। (3) ਖੁਸ਼ੀਆਂ, ਮੌਜ, ਮੇਲਾ, ਅਨੰਦ। (4) ਵਰਣ, ਰੰਗ। (5) ਚੋਜ। (6) ਮੌਜ, ਮਸਤੀ, ਮਗਨਤਾ। (7) ਸ਼ੋਭਾ (ਮਹਾਨਕੋਸ਼)। (8) ਕੰਗਾਲ, ਰੰਕ। (9) ਅਨੰਦੀ, ਮੌਜ/ਅਨੰਦ ਕਰਨ ਵਾਲਾ। ਉਦਾਹਰਣ: ਅਨਿਕ ਮਾਇਆ ਰੰਗ ਤਿਖ ਨ ਬੁਝਾਵੈ॥ {ਗਉ ੫, ਸੁਖ ੨, ੨:੫ (264)}। ਅਨਿਕ ਰੰਗ ਬਹੁ ਤਰੰਗ ਸਰਬ ਕੋ

Re: Rang

Ambarsaria ji,
It would be more constructive if you post your understanding of the Mahan Kosh interpretation in your own words in English and how it should be applied to our undertsanding of gurbani.

In simple terms, like Ambarsaria ji pointed out, rang is just a color.

But in real life, rang is what spectrum of light is reflected back. If you wear a blue shirt, then the fabric is absorbing all other colors of spectrum and reflecting only blue. Which is what we see. (I don't know if this is a scientific fact or a theoretical model)

When we fall in love with Waheguru, we are colored in His Rang (color). And no matter what anyone says or does to us, we always reflect the color of Waheguru (which I believe is to be Truth, Gursikhi Jiwan and Bhau/Prem for Waheguru).
