Self Realized Person

( good that the video is removed! Some spiritual politics it seems! But anyway, it's good not to mention one Self Realized person when there are thousands who achieved that state )

This human body is likened to a city with nine gates (two eyes, two ears, two nostrils, one mouth, the anus and the genitals). The Gurbani time and again reminds us that all these nine gates are defiled or impure. The mind free to escape through these defiled gates binds the soul in clutches of the material bondage.
One who is Self-realized dwells in the Infinite Cosmic Wisdom, beyond the bodily nine gates. Thus, having mastered his mind through Spiritual practices, he frees himself from the results of any fruitive actions. In this way he enjoys the state beyond all miseries, including the cycle of reincarnation — repeated pain and delusion.
By remaining fixed in the trance of Self-realization, his mind is no longer disturbed by any external thing. Thus, having penetrated the dense forest of delusion, he becomes indifferent to all that has been heard and all that is to be heard. He becomes indifferent to all the books, all the castes, all the vanities of the world, and so on.  At this point he has nothing left to follow, because, he has already attained Spiritual Perfection within.
He has completely relinquished all varieties of sense gratifications, which arise from mental concoctions. He is contented in his True Self, and by the True Self.  He remains undisturbed even amidst the so called "filth" or "impurities" of the material world. His mind is purified and enjoys the Pure Transcendental Consciousness.
