Bhagavad Gita : Reside happily in the city of nine gates [ the material body] (Karma-yoga-Action in Krsna (divine) Consciousness (Text 13, Ch 5)

Sarva-karmani manasa 
sannyasyaste sukham vasi
nava-dvare pure dehi
naiva kurvan na karayan

(Text 13, Ch 5)

Meaning: When the embodied living being controls his nature and mentally renounces all actions, he resides happily in the city of nine gates [the material body], neither working nor causing work to be done.

*** The Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is living within the body of a living entity, is the controller of all living entities all over the universe. The body consists of nine gates [ two eyes, two nostrils, two ears, one mouth, the anus and the genitals]. The living entity in his conditioned stage identifies himself with the body, but when he identifies himself with the Lord within himself, he becomes just as free as the Lord, even while in the body.
