Five thieves vs five virtues

Recommended Posts

Stay away from defining concepts in this manner.  Putting them in a box limits the person's ability to understand them better.  He also didn't explain what neutralizes the 5 thieves.  Its Guru's Bani that subdues the 5 thieves.  Remembering a shabad can take the mind from anger to Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji feet.  Remembering a sacrifice made by the Guru's can also bring the mind to be humbled.  

Many of these preachers talk about calming the mind as the objective so they look for quick methods to teach and receive monetary gain.  Guru Sahib teaches us to keep our focus on the Guru.  Focusing your mind on the Guru brings true peace to the mind.  Desire for the Guru is what we want to have.  Once that intense desire is developed through countless hours of remembering Vaheguru you will not feel anger or greed.  These 5 will be present in the world in the same manner, but they won't bother you. It will be like a poisonous snake is two inches away from your face but you are not scared of it because Guru Sahib is your protector.

Amen bro, I didn't get to watch the video yet, but I like what you've had to say in response.

What monetary gain? It's a free video on YouTube,  and the snakes analogy was for teaching his children.
