Dear One:

There are many "9s" that can be considered as "treasurers". However, in the context of the Shabads that you have quoted, depending upon the context, the Nine Treasures could refer to the following (as appropriate):

The 1st set of 9 refers to the 9 treasures in Sanskrit writings of old:

Padam, Mahapadam, Shankh, Kachhap, Mukund, Kund, Neel and Vuch.

The 2nd set of 9 consists of precious stones :

Motee, Punna, Manik, Gmed, Heera, Moonga, Luhsiniya, Pukhraj, and Neelam.

The 3rd set of 9 consists of Methods of Prayer and Service:

Listening to Prayer, Singing God's praises, Meditating on Naam, Service to the Lord, Archna (Pryer with flowers etc.), Bowing down to our Lord God, Thinking of our Lord God as a Friend, Thinking of our Lord God as our Master, Surrender to the Lord.

And there are several other sets of "9" that can be considered as "treasures".

Incidentally, this is a Yough Q&A Forum. If you wish to discuss this, or other serious subjects further, you may consider posting on the Discussion Forum, which could involve a more general discussion on the subject with wider and more mature participation.

Humbly and Respectfully,

Jasjit
