When we could see godliness personified within the shape of a temple, something of godliness lingered on in our minds. This was especially so for people who could not visualize the unmanifest divine. For those who could, there was no need for a temple. But in a way these people caused great harm to the temple because they said that temples had no use and that they should be dispensed with.
If temples are destroyed, how would those who cannot visualize the unmanifest form of godliness, ever be able to think of godliness ?
The temple remains a source of inspiration all twenty four hours of your day.
