meditation in temple

That [Spirit] which considers itself human, sees itself as human, identifies it´s true self [Buddha nature] with the human body, or the given and accepted name-form of such a collection of impermanent faculties which are re-enforced by the arisen five folded skandhic consciousness, is not enlightened and can never be enlightened as long as this illusion persists.
