Temples and God

One who has realized godliness will feel God’s presence everywhere – in a temple as well as in a place which is not a temple. Then how will he distinguish what is a temple and what is not a temple? We identify a temple as a place which has God’s presence in it, but if one feels his presence everywhere then every place is his temple. Then there will no longer be any need to build separate temples, or to do away with temples either.
