there are ten gates; night and day, the five thieves break

Recommended Posts

By practicing control over the nine gates, one attains perfect control over the Tenth Gate.

The Gurmukh is inspired, his body is golden, and his light merges into the Light of the Fearless Lord. ||1||

I cannot live, for a moment, even for an instant, without the Name of the Lord; the Gurmukh reads the Sermon of the Lord, Har, Har. ||1||Pause||

In the one house of the body, there are ten gates; night and day, the five thieves break in.

They steal the entire wealth of one's Dharmic faith, but the blind, self-willed manmukh does not know it. ||2||

The fortress of the body is overflowing with gold and jewels; when it is awakened by spiritual wisdom, one enshrines love for the essence of reality.

The thieves and robbers hide out in the body; through the Word of the Guru's Shabad, they are arrested and locked up. ||3||

The Messenger of Death, the tax collector, does not even come close, and no thieves or robbers can plunder you. ||4||
