Meaning:

Lightning tears temple asunder,
Divine wrath, or natural disaster?

It is a simple fact that lightning split temple. The meaning of this incident -if there is any- is determined by each person. One person regards it as a disaster, another as a good thing, while a third views it dispassionately.

There is nothing inherent in the incident that dictates its meaning. It is enough that we all recognize that it happened.
