“You are the highest temple of God.  I would rather worship you than any temple, image, or Bible. Vedanta says there is nothing that is not God.  The living God is within you, and yet you are building churches and temples and believing all sorts of imaginary nonsense. The only God to worship is the human soul in the human body.  All animals are temples too, but man is the highest, the Taj Mahal of temples…. The moment I have realized God sitting in the temple of every human body, the moment I stand in reverence before every human being and see God in [all], that moment I am free from bondage. Everything that binds vanishes, and I am free.”                                                           Swami Vivekananda, “God and Man in Vedanta”                                                                                    Vedanta: Voice of Freedom
