Hi, I´m currently reading the SGGS and I came upon some phrases I didn´t understand. So if anyone knows please give me some backgroundinformation or interpretations, links to other thread about it would help too. 1. By actions committed under the influence of the three qualities, hope and anxiety are produced. Without the Guru, how can anyone be released from these three qualities? Through intuitive wisdom, we meet with Him and find peace. Within the home of the self, the Mansion of His Presence is realized when He bestows His Glance of Grace and washes away our pollution. --- What are the three qualities? 2. Bring the twentyseven elements of the body under your control, and throughout the three stages of life, remember death. See the Infinite Lord in the ten directions, and in all the variety of nature. Says Nanak, in this way, the One Lord shall carry you across. --- can anyone summarize the 27 elements of the body? I know that it´s maybe not that important to understand the meaning of it but I´m curious. I´m sure I´ll be comming along some more questions as I continue. Thanks for your help.
