Mixing with tin, the copper transforms into bronze.
The same copper mixed with zinc appears in the form of brass.
Copper mixed with lead changes pewter, a brittle metal called bharath in the Punjab.
With the touch of the philosopher’s stone, the same copper becomes gold.
When transformed into ashes copper becomes a medicine.
Likewise, though the Lord is omnipresent, yet the effects of the company of man are different over men. Knowing this much, the Lord is eulogised in the holy congregation.

The etymology of the term 'gurdwara' is from the words 'Gur (ਗੁਰ)' (a reference to the Sikh Gurus) and 'Dwara (ਦੁਆਰਾ)' (gateway in Gurmukhi), together meaning 'the gateway through which the Guru could be reached'. Thereafter, all Sikh places of worship came to be known as gurdwaras.
