THE ONLY REAL TEMPLE -- WHERE IS IT?
Outer, physical Temples can be seen, at best, as metaphors for,
or projections of, the temple or divine presence in our own consciousness.
Referring to the old Socrates of Athens, , H. P. Blavatsky wrote:
“From the days of the primitive man described by the first Vedic poet, down
to our modern poet, there has not been a philosopher worthy of that name,
who did not carry in the silent sanctuary of his heart the grand and
mysterious truth. If initiated, he learnt it as a sacred science; if
otherwise, then, like Socrates repeating to himself, as well as to his
fellow-men, the noble injuction, ‘O man, know thyself’’, he succeeded in
recognizing his God within himself." (1)
The esoteric movement is only a stimulating and testing common ground for
that inner recognition.
