At the beginning of your practice, you need a conducive environment. When you reach higher levels of development, perhaps then you can say that your consciousness is your temple, your consciousness is your church, but until then, when you are starting out, you are too easily influenced by the bubble of relativity and intellectual concepts; you are overwhelmed and dominated by the vibration of your visualization of the external world. Therefore, you need to develop your mind until you reach the point where you can see that in fact, reality does not change at all.

~ Lama Thubten Yeshe
