When you discriminate one form of GOD from another, you end up worshiping you own ego and become blind; you will not see what you want to see. By creating levels for the one and only Supreme and coining terms such as “super”, “demi”, and so on, you are actually degrading yourself into classifications, which in reality, do not exist. The end result is that you make a person out of yourself who is highly egoistic, knowledge-blind and thus, complete obstruct from the light of truth.
It’s really simple; Search within.
Search beyond the Senses; You would reach the Mind.
Search beyond your Mind; You would reach the Intellect.
Go beyond your Intellect; You would reach the Ego.
Go beyond your Ego; You would reach your Self.
Realize your Self; Be in it; That’s You!
You become the Eternal Truth called Sanaatana Dharma.
This is beyond religion; This is the Goal of Life.
And, this is the Truth; the One and Only Truth.

From the common man’s point of view, a temple is the abode of GOD’s form(s) wherein a devotee comes to worship the deities therein.
The true concepts behind temples are directly connected to the Yoga Sastra as explained in the scripture Siva Samhita. What we practise as Yogasanas (Yoga exercises) are rooted in Siva Samhita wherein Lord Siva teaches His consort Parvati, the secret powers that lie dormant in every person in his astral body irrespective of his religion or ethnic group.
