Today is the 5th day of Krishna paksha of Falgun month. It is celebrated as Rang Panchami in Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh. It is even celebrated in the rural areas with full gusto. People in cities are quite unaware about this festival.
Rang Panchami is a symbol of victory over raja-tama.
The fire, which shines with its brilliance on Holi, decomposes the raja-tama particles in the atmosphere and this helps activate various Deities in the form of colours. This bliss is celebrated by throwing colours in the air.
Rang Panchami involves invocation of Gods. Rang Panchami is the worship of the saviour form of the Deities.
Wishing you and your families a very Happy Rang Panchami.
