{n~ga-ra.}  angāra
PTS: -- (m. nt.) [Vedic angāra] charcoal, burning coal, embers
UHS: {n~ga-ra.}  -- UHS-PMD0012

UKT from UHS-PMD0012: m. glowing embers, live charcoal [only wood was used as fuel: the translation 'burning coal' or 'live coal' is misleading because the fuel can then be 'mineral' coal and 'half-burnt mineral' coke].
   Personal note: Back in 1969, I, a Buddhist together with another Buddhist friend of mine -- U Tun Yi, township engineer of Public Works Dept. in Mandalay, participated in 'fire-walking ceremony of the Shia Muslims. We were dared into it by our Shia friend, Mr. Khorosani and we gladly accepted -- we had not drunk any alcohol that night and we were not drunk, and we were not teenagers. I was a respected lecturer in Chemistry in Mandalay University then: with a wife who was also teaching chemistry in the University, and my friend was a senior engineer.
   We were told how the fire pit was prepared since mid-day for the ceremony at mid-night. Large logs were used, and at about midnight everything had turned to glowing embers, and we walked barefoot on the live charcoal embers -- it was the softest carpet I had treaded on: only it was 'burning' hot. It did not burn our feet, and our Muslim neighbours -- Shias and Sunnis alike of 23rd street -- came to respect us: maybe not for our bravery but for our dare-devil-do foolery.

{n~ga-ra.ka.} angāraka
PTS:-- (adj.) [cp. Sk. angāraka] like charcoal, of red colour, N. of the planet Mars DA i. 95; cp. J i. 73.

PTS:-- (adj.) [cp. Sk. angāraka] like charcoal, of red colour, N. of the planet Mars
UHS: {n~ga-ra.ka.} -- UHS-PMD0012

UKT from UHS-PMD0012: mfn. red like a burning ember. m. Planet Mars (presumably because of its red colour).

PTS:-- a charcoal-burner J vi. 206 (= angāra -- kamma- kara p. 209).


[] {n~ga-rain} angārin
PTS:-- (adj.) [to angāra] (burning) like coal, of bright- red colour, crimson Th 1, 527 = J i. 87 (dumā trees in full bloom).
UHS: {{n~ga-ri} -- UHS-PMD0012

UKT: UHS gives [] within [...] meaning Sanskrit. Since explicit viram is not allowed in Pali, we agree with him. He does not give any {::ting} 'dot-above', but instead give the long vowel.
  The word is given as angārin on p007c1 of PTS (Cal.Dig.Lib). Did PTS mean that the word is spelled with a {::ting} 'dot-above'?
   We find the same problem in [] {n~gain}  angin below. -- UKT121020
