ਤ੝ਰਿਕ੝ਟੀ ਛੂਟੈ ਦਸਵਾ ਦਰ੝ ਖੂਲ੝ਹ੝ਹੈ

In Gurmat, Dasam Dwar is tenth door situated in Subtle body(in heart). This Dasam Dwar is of Subtle body not of physical Body. Tirkuti is place where we listen, where we take breath where we see. This place is called Tirkuti which is present in Mind in brain

Yogics View

Yogis says that Dasam dwar is in head but Gurbani says that place is called Tirkuti. The Dasam Dwaar also Dasamadvara is the Tenth Door or Gate in addition to the physical body having nine openings (two eyes, ears, nostrils, mouth and the organs of procreation and excretion). It is at the top of the head, the Brahmarandhra that opens upon Kundalini awakening when we feel the Cool Breeze. It is open on all babies who are born with a soft spot called the anterior fontenal. Sikhs believe that there are 10 'gates' to the body; Some understand 'gates' as another word for 'chakras' or energy centres.however, gates are physical opening which are also understood as chand-suraj(sight), pavan (air), pani (water) signifying eyes, ears/nose and mouth (ref:Sri Guru Granth Sahib 974:9)The top most energy level is the called the tenth gate or dasam dwaar where Anhad Bani: The unstruck sound current of the Shabad vibrates.

Kundalini rising and flowing out of Dasam Dwar (Tenth Door) as Cool Breeze. The Tenth Gate is the home of the Supreme Divine Guru and it is possible to meet this Shakti!.gif

According to Sikhism the Tenth Gate can only be opened by the Guru's grace and is vital for Self-realization and enlightenment.

The energy channels of the Ida, Pingala and Shushmanaa:
These three dwell in one place.
This is the true place of confluence of the three sacred rivers:
This is where my mind takes its cleansing bath.
O Saints, the Immaculate Lord dwells there;
How rare are those who go to the Guru, and understand this.
The all-pervading immaculate Lord is there.
What is the insignia of the Divine Lord's dwelling?
The unstruck sound current of the Shabad vibrates there.
There is no moon or sun, no air or water there.
The Gurmukh becomes aware, and knows the Teachings.
Spiritual wisdom wells up, and evil-mindedness departs;
The nucleus of the mind sky is drenched with Ambrosial Nectar.
One who knows the secret of this device, meets the Supreme Divine Guru.
The Tenth Gate is the home of the inaccessible, infinite Supreme Lord.
Above the store is a niche, and within this niche is the commodity.

Yogic explanation (not supported by Gurbani)

The Tenth Door opens when the Kundalini rises from the Mooladhara and, after rising through the Sushunma Nadi, exits the Brahmarandhra. The Cool Breeze that is felt is the sure sign that one's Dasam Dwar is open.

1. Lower half of body!!?

"The Second Grand Division consists of Pure Spirit and a subtle form of matter combined in varying degrees. The upper part of it is called Par Brahmand, wherein the spirit is more to be compared with the subtle forms of matter. In the lower parts called Dasam Dwar, both are in equal part. This is the region of the universal mind and is termed by various names by various Masters. Here the Spirit is mixed with matter in its subtlest form, the latter being totally subordinate to the former. Spirit in this region predominates and is pre-eminently the ruling force. This region undergoes a change at the destruction of the universe in the Grand Dissolution (Maha Pralaya), and in Dissolution (Pralaya). A man in this domain is safer than in the one below it."

Sant Kirpal Singh http://www.ruhanisatsangusa.org/jj/jj-intro3.htm (Sant Kirpal Singh's theories are based on Radhasoami sect which derives from Kabirpanthi sects. These are not Gurmat. Gurmat worships God, Niranjan, Hari as names of Par Brahm Pooran Brahm, while Kabirpanthi/Radhasoami treat Niranjan/Creator as Negative energy called Kaal. Sant Kripal singh claims to be the Supreme God,and the Father of Kabir Saheb and Guru Nanak Saheb.)

2. Agnya Chakra!!?

"Note that for your basic Naam Simran you can use either `Satnam', `Waheguru' or the full Gurumanter `Satnam Sri Waheguru'. You decide on your variation. Personally, I find that when I want to say `Naam' inwardly (without being hearted) I have a tendency of using `Satnam' (breath in `Sat', and breath out `Naam'). And when I want to say it aloud I tend to say either `Satnam Sri Waheguru', or just `Waheguru'.

Initially, when you close your eyes you will be starting into the back of your eyelids. When you are focused try to centre your mind between your eyes drawing yourself backwards just behind your forehead. This region is referred to as the `Dasam Dwar' (the Tenth Door), by Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji. It is called the Tenth Door simply because it is the tenth aperture (opening) in your body - the spiritual opening. The other nine being two eyes, two ears, two nostrils, one mouth, one urinary/reproductory passage and the anus. The Dasam Dwar is also referred to, on other Eastern religions, as the `Third Eye' - the spiritual eye between the other two eyes. Initially when you try to centre your focus to this spot, it is an overwhelming sensation, you get a headache for trying too hard, it will be scary and upsetting but, with practice, there is a great sense of joy and exhilaration when you reach his important region which is the `Simran Doorway'."

3. Astral Plane where true Amritsar is!!?

"The long process begins with concentration at the seat of the soul in the body, situated just between and behind the two eyebrows, where mental simran is done in full earnest. This enables the withdrawal of spirit-current at present diffused in the body and concentrates it at the seat of the soul, with the result that confines of the gross matter of the body and of the outward world are cut off. The spirit once unfettered and disimprisoned from the finite existence, now gets an ingress into the Til, Naukta Sweda or the Third Eye, and from here proceeds further, with the help or a God-man, to higher planes within. After passing confidently through the astral planes, one reaches the Dasam Dwar, with its Sacred Fount of Nectar, the true Amritsar, Mansarover or Prag-Raj in man. The Muslims call it Hauz-i-Kausar. A bath or baptism therein frees the spirit from the sheaths of the astral and the causal bodies and finer matter. This is the real baptism with the holy-waters of immortality. The spirit now left to itself, is fully refulgent with a light brighter than that of several suns. Now cognizant of the true essence which is none other than that of the Lord Himself, it proceeds further with the help of the Master in His Radiant Form until the spirit reaches the pure spiritual region: the Sach Khand, New Jerusalem or Maqam-i-Haq, where Sat Purush - the Formless One - resides. There from with the help and through the Grance of the latter, the Spirit is passed on to the Nameless One, stage by stage by stage. This aspect of the ascent of the soul from material planes to spiritual-material regions and thence to purely spiritual regions, forms the subject matter of stanza XXI of the Jap Ji. Therein the Master has dealt with the three most important stages out of the five spiritual stages: Til (the starting point), Dasam Dwar, and Sach Khand. The five regions are also explained at the end of Jap Ji.

The man who has access into Til and bathes in the lustre of the luminous astral figure of the Master, is called a Sikh or a disciple of the Master (a devotee). As he progresses upwards, he reaches the Dasam Dwar, the third in the stages of development, and becomes a Sadh (a disciplined soul). When he reaches the Region of Pure Spirit, he is given the epithet of Sant or Saint. One who has reached the highest Spiritual Region of the Nameless One, the Unknowable and the Imperceivable, becomes a Param Sant, the saint of saints. These expressions occur in the text of the sayings of the Masters. There are specific terms with significant connotations and have no reference whatsoever to those engaged in the outer pursuits of forms and formularies, or in the performance of rites and rituals or observance of fasts and vigils, etc."

4. Third Inner Plane!!?

"You ask me how to hold your mind. It is held only through Shabd. Hear its music daily and meditate on the form of Satguru. Then the mind shall cease to wander and one day, borne on the Shabd Dhun, the soul shall reach Dasam Dwar (the third inner plane and home of the Universal Mind). Thus, leaving the mental apparatus behind, the soul shall unite with the pure Shabd and through the grace of the Satguru reach Sach Khand. Have no doubt, it shall reach there."

Thus if the Tenth Gate can only be opened by the Guru's grace and is vital for Self-realization and enlightenment, how long will that take for Sikhs? i mean Sikhism is now more than five centuries-old and yet they remain hopelessly far from Self-realization and enlightenment.

So unless we connect the Guru Granth Sahib to Shri Mataji's message and advent as the Guru will Sikhs join Sahaja Yoga? (The person who wrote above lines needs to read Vaar of Bhai Gurdas to understand Sehaj Yoga. Thousands of teachers like Mataji has come and gone, none should claim to know the complete path. True Saints have humility like Guru Arjan Saheb who says "Ram hau kya jaana kya bhaave", I can't say what God likes. His will is supreme) Will they become interested if we can prove that Shri Mataji is the Aykaa Mayee (One Mother)? (Write of above lines needs to do some research on Kabirpanth/Bhakti Mat and will find that Eka Mayi is triguni Maya, personified as daughter of Brahm/Niranjan and Mother of Tridev. Kabir and other kabirpanthi saints have been harsh on Maya and considered Sat Purush to be supreme and Maya to be cause of trap of Kaal) Should SYs learn more about such knowledge or is the subtle system more than sufficient? In the first place is such knowledge available on SY websites? Should we overhaul our websites and present Shri Mataji's advent and message clearly, or are the present methods too good for any change and is no cause for concern? (Please don't try to advertise Siri Mata ji here, there are many flaws and scientific flaws/ historical errors in the theories used by Kabirpanthis and Sri Mata followers. It is really difficult to be mad in love like Guru Nanak and to live the life like Guru Arjan/ Gur Gobind Singh. Guru Granth Sahib is a great source of love for God. In Gurmat , all things except love with God are considered as dust.)
