1. Dear Guest, we truly appreciate your patience while we are working hard on the upgrade process, which was forced upon us due to the decline of our original forum software. Good news is SPN is almost ready to resume its normal operations soon. The new cutting edge software has been chosen with a primary focus on enhancing user experience especially while using SPN on the mobile devices such as tablets or phones. This new platform will also provide us the opportunity to implement new ideas which were not possible in old software. Forum appearance will be an on going process and you would notice significant changes as we mature working in the new software environment. Some of the core functionality like the blogs will be restored gradually. Once, the forum is fully active, please take your time navigating around the new forum functionality. We will also introduce you to new functionality from time to time.

    "RANG"

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


    In human contest
    Cause "Duality"
    "Inferiority"& "Superiority"
    "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

    "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

    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,

    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).
