Ravi Zacharias
“We are his temple. We do not turn in a certain directlon to pray. We are not bound by having to go into a building so that we can commune with God. There are no unique postures and times and limitations that restrict our access to God. My relationship with God is intimate and personal. The Christian does not go to the temple to worship. The Christian takes the temple with him or her. Jesus lifts us beyond the building and pays the human body the highest compliment by making it His dwelling place, the place where He meets with us. Even today He would overturn the tables of those who make it a marketplace for their own lust, greed, and wealth.”

Vera Nazarian
“No Temple made by mortal human hands can ever compare to the Temple made by the gods themselves. That building of wood and stone that houses us and that many believe conceals the great Secret Temple from prying eyes, somewhere in its heart of hearts, is but a decoy for the masses who need this simple concrete limited thing in their lives. The real Temple is the whole world, and there is nothing as divinely blessed as a blooming growing garden.”
Vera Nazarian, Dreams of the Compass Rose

A true man of God would see every temple or divine mansion built to glorify the Creator - as an extension of the temple closest to his home, regardless of its shape, size, or color. A man who truly recognizes and knows God can see God in all things.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Shunya
“When you see something, your mind rushes to put labels on it: table, chair, good, bad etc. Sacred space is a space where your mind doesn't feel need to label anything. It relaxes, allowing you to go inward. That space can be sea shore, forest, mountain, beloved's arms or a temple. For awakened ones, every inch is sacred.”
Shunya
