Functional opening in the body of an organism
A body orifice is any opening in the body of an animal.
In a typical mammalian body such as the human body, the external body orifices are:
Other animals may have some other body orifices:
Internal orifices include the orifices of the outflow tracts of the heart, between the heart valves.
You would have heard about holes in the human body. Every hole has a different purpose in the human body’s ability to control and carry out daily actions. These 9 holes in human body are known as Nav Dwara in Sanskrit or the nine doors of the human body. While knowing this, you might ask about the hole between your toes and how does human skin have holes. Continue reading to learn more.
1. What are Body Holes?
The nine gates or openings in the human body are two nostrils, two ears, and two eyes, the anus, mouth, vagina, or penis. Even though these openings are not actual holes, they are homomorphism on human skin. These are natural openings in the body. (See 90 Mind Blowing Human Body Facts)
2. Does our Body have Holes?
Yes, our human body has holes. We humans find it quite puzzling that there are so many bodily openings. Because of how porous our bodies are, if we cut a glove of garlic and rub it on the back of our foot for 15 minutes, we can taste the garlic in our mouths. It’s true, and the explanation is quite intriguing. (Allicin). The garlic’s molecules, which are tiny and very water-soluble, can pass through your skin, get into your bloodstream, and then reach the mouth and nose.

6. Does Human Skin have Holes?
Yes, the human skin have holes, and these are called pores. Without our knowledge, billions of pass through our bodies. These ghostly 100 billion neutrinos, which come from the sun and travel from the tip of your thumbnail to the tip of your toe, are harmless materials because they have no electric charge and travel at a speed that is almost as fast as light.

While knowing about the 9 holes in human body, you would be wondering about the holes in the skin. On the human skin, countless holes are not holes but are instead called pores. However, the entrances and exits needed for a human body to operate are represented by the nine doors or nine holes in the human body. (See Number of Bones in Human Body Male vs Female)

10. Why is there a Hole in your Toe? Why is there a Hole Between your Toes?Photo by Jan Romero on Unsplash
Not generally. Due to the physical demands of your employment, you may have developed infections in the spaces between your toes, which can be considered holes between your toes. You are more likely to have the infection known as pitted keratolysis if your profession needs you to move about a lot and wear confined footwear for extended periods. Your feet start to develop a pit or hole between your toes due to this infection. (See Do you need Toes to Walk?)
There is a vedic story wherein which the body is compared to a city, a city consisting of 9 gates (entrance/exits). Two eyes, two ears, your mouth, your nostrils, your anus and genitals. The king in the city is the consciousness, the Queen the intelligence, both married together in this city. The queen or intellignce has bodyguards, known as the senses (smell, hearing, vision, touch, taste). The bodyguards have wives, the wives are the desires. The cobra headed snake is the guardian of the city considered to be your basic life force (prana).
I love this parable because if you start to think of your body as a city and become more strict about what comes in and out of those gates, the better your life will become. The best part being that you control the gates. Most people don’t monitor the gates at all, doritos being stuffed into the mouth, porn into the eye gates, terrible music in the ears. You must be careful with your gates. Or you could end up like Detroit city and wondering why you're so depressed.
You must also be wary of what comes OUT of your gates. Have you ever been around anyone with a leaky mouth gate? So many people losing energy out their mouth. Gossip, talking about people behind their backs, talking about themselves, bragging, vomiting out putrid negativity into whatever space they happen to be in, a veritable verbal poop shoot of verbiage, this behaviour is sadly to their detriment and these people must be avoided.
And of course more examples, women; one baby after another flying out of their vagina gate without the least thought of how this effects the planet, themselves or the kid, men ejaculating all the time, not good. Due to a lack of gate control, a lack of security in the city, a lack of mindful behaviour, suffering for them and those around them is sure to follow. It is all connected, most obviously here; what comes out the bottom gate is connected with the mouth gate, remember that curry you had last week? But also more subtly, what comes out the mouth gate is connected to what goes INTO the ear and eye gates. Did I tell you to be careful what goes in and out of your gates?
All of this is related to the queen of the city or your intelligence, the bodyguards and their wives with their stupid incessant desires, they want cigarettes, a coffee after dinner, want to go to Apollo on a monday night when you have to work the next days, they want to make frozen margaritas, I won't get you started on my genital gates desires. And the next thing you know you start putting these things into your gates and you get sick. Or possibly you have some psychic or physical warts on your gates. Then the city starts falling apart, the gates become harder to control with things flying out and possibly more sickness flying in. And now you're sick all because you didn't control what you let in and out of your city.
Death can be a relief if the city is dilapidated and if you haven't been looking after your city, but let's not get there in the first place eh? Having said that, dying is so easy these days what with the new opiates and the like, it's like sliding down a waterslide, complete oblivion of your soul leaving your body, so don’t worry about that but let's not go before it's our time...
Bottom line? Be careful what you let in and out of your gates. The main thing is to only let into your ear gates the finest beethoven music, and Everest guided meditations. To fill your mouth gate full of air and good intentions with our breathing exercises. To only be touched and touch deserving people. To only let the most sumptuous and nutritious ketogenic food into your mouth gate. To regularly let the EMT sunrise and blogs into your eye gates. If you do these things I promise you, little by little splendid prose of loving kindness will soon be effortlessly exiting your mouth gate for all those around you, and your eye gates will bear witness to the beautiful effect you've had on your surroundings.
