Rang Panchami

Friday, 02 April 2021
Rang Panchami

Rang Panchami is a Hindu festival celebrated five days after the colorful festival of Holi. It is celebrated on the fifth day of the Krishna Paksha during the Falgun month of the Hindu calendar while in the Gregorian calendar it falls in the months of February-March. Rang Panchami is also celebrated in a colorful way.


The word 'Rang' denotes 'Rang', while Panchami refers to the 5th day and hence Holi is played on Rang Panchami, in some places across the country. According to Hindu mythology, Rang Panchami symbolizes victory over 'Raz-Tama', which is a barrier to spiritual progress. It is celebrated with full fervor in Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and some regions of North India. In Maharashtra it is celebrated as 'Shimago' or 'Shimga' and is characterized by traditional Palkhi dance. It is mainly celebrated by members of the fishing community and includes dancing, singing and merry-making. In the temples of Vrindavan and Mathura, the celebration of Rang Panchami concludes the celebration of Holi.


This festival of Rang Panchami in 2021 will be celebrated on Friday, April 02.


Ritual during Rang Panchami:


The celebration of Rang Panchami is celebrated just like Holi. This day is colored with friends and families.


On this day Hindu devotees also worship Lord Krishna and Radha. They perform worship rituals to pay homage to the divine union between Krishna and Radha.


Importance of Rang Panchami:


Rang Panchami is a joyous festival celebrated in all corners of the country. This festival, just after Holi, is celebrated with fun and enchanting colors. Rang Panchami holds immense religious significance for Hindus. According to legends, it is believed that Holika Dahan, or the fire that sparkles brilliantly during Holi, affects all Raja-Tama particles present in the atmosphere. The ceremony also invokes many deities through colors. Therefore it is believed that the festival of Rang Panchami liberates all Raja-Tama.


The main purpose of this festival is to activate the five elements that make up the Pancha Tattva or universe. These five elements make up the earth, light, water, sky and air. It is believed that the human body is also composed of these five elements. The festival of Rang Panchami invites these five core elements that help restore balance in life.
