“Buddha became enlightened under a tree, watching the last morning star disappearing in the sky; not in a temple. The disappearing star, slowly slowly disappearing…One moment before it was there, and now it is no longer there. And in that moment, the last citadel of the ego, disappeared too. Just like the disappearing morning star, his ego disappeared too. That moment Buddha became enlightened. That moment he came to know the cosmic principle of life.
Lao Tzu, Zarathustra, Mohammed, not a single person has ever become enlightened in a temple, church or mosque. Go early in the morning to see the sunrise. Sit in the middle of the night watching the sky full of stars. Go, befriend trees and rocks. Go, lie down by the side of the river and listen to its sound. And you will becoming closer and closer to the real temple of God. Nature is the real temple.”— OSHO
