In this study, semiotic functions of color and light have been investigated and analyzed in “Chinese and Romans discourse on painting and portraying” chosen from the first volume of Masnavi. In this discourse, introducing his phenomenological point of view, Mowlana tries to demonstrate how democratic aspect of oriental mysticism is crystalized. Thus the main question of this study is how and under which circumstances and cultural discoursal functions, the transition from physical-actional atmosphere to symbolic and transcendental one is achievable. In fact, the purpose of this research is to study the interactive characteristics of light and color besides demonstrating the place of cultural semio-spheres in Mowlana’s discourse. Our hypothesis is that ontological and phenomenological presence of light saves the discoursal space of color from existential decadence, and places it in the transcendental position. According to this hypothesis, light and color in a colorless atmosphere cause the signification transcendence. In such circumstances, we see our self-integration with the other and the presence of existence where everything changes to a context of aesthetic music of the world spirit.
