"walking in a temple,living in a prayer"

He was a physician,I met him after his admission for respiratory failure due to a progressive neuromuscular disease.He told me that he was a good one and he had diagnosed his own disease at least five years prior to his physician had diagnosed.
There was no treatment so he remained quite and kept his secret until now.

He was the most understanding patient I have ever met,he told me that he was not afraid of dying.He continued by saying that all his life he served his patient with humility,knowing that medicine has cure for a few diseases and most of time it is symptom management.He believed in honouring human life,the most sacred human attribute as a physician.

The other day when his condition got too unstable,I saw waves after waves of people visiting him.I came to know those people were his patients of all those years when he was walking in a temple,living in a prayer,his calling as a physician.
