Quote of the Day

You are holy if you have nine holes and you watch what goes in and out! If it’s a conscious act, you are holy. If it’s an emotional act, you are unholy. It it’s a commotional act, you are insane. If it’s an unconscious act, you are an idiot.” – Yogi Bhajan

  3. Your body has nine holes (2 eyes socket, 2 ears, 2 nostrils, mouth, anus and sexual organs).

  4. Wahe Guru ji ka Khalsa
    Wahe Guru ji ki Fateh

    Why do you quote Yogi Bhajan, when Guru Nanak said: By practicing control over the nine gates, one attains perfect control over the Tenth Gate.

    What is the Tenth Gate?

    The Creator established the nine gates.
    In the Tenth Gate, is the dwelling of the infinite, unseen Lord.
    Guru Nanak

    By the karma of past actions, the robe of this physical body is obtained. By His Grace, the Gate of Liberation is found. Guru Nanak

    From the Sky of the Tenth Gate, the Ambrosial Nectar trickles down. Guru Nanak

    The medicine of the Naam, and the Immaculate Water of Ambrosial Nectar, are obtained through the Guru’s Gate. ||4||Guru Arjan

    It is when one experiences Amrit (Immaculate Water of Ambrosial Nectar) through the Tenth Gate, that one experiences true Ishnaan and the Guru dwells within your mind.

    May I use some simple logic here? The nine gates, yes, the openings of our bodies. Some people’s bodies, that is. Males have 9 openings, but who has 10 openings? Females? So therefore, is logic saying the female vagina is the 10th gate, of amrit?

    Wahe Guru ji ki Fateh

    As GuruMustuk stated, the sexual organs and this includes the urinary tracts are considered as one hole.

    All of these are physical. However the Tenth Gate is located at the crown of your head. This is where you tie your jora. Obviously there is no physical hole there, so what is it? As in just about everything in Sikhi, it is transcending the physical.

    As I said before: “It is when one experiences Amrit (Immaculate Water of Ambrosial Nectar) through the Tenth Gate, that one experiences true Ishnaan and the Guru dwells within your mind.” It is not something that can not be easily described but as in anything transcendental it has to be experienced before you know what it is.
