Temples in stone are reminders of the existence of God.
When you see a lawyer you are reminded of your legal troubles.
When you see a doctor you think of your illness.
Likewise, when you see a temple, you are reminded of God.
However what pleases Me most is the permanent temples constructed in your hearts.
True worship consists in heartfelt devotion to God present within each and every one. Each one us must hence Purify the temple in your heart, and dedicate your life to service.
People talk about God’s vibhuti (sacred ash) and God’s miracles. But the real miracle of God is His boundless Love which propels innumerable devotees – men and women, young and old to render selfless service in various forms to express their love for the Lord.
Relentlessly practice purity, love and renunciation, and discover the secret of enduring peace and bliss yourself!
