What's a word that means reach climax, or maybe find meaning? associated with religion, it is something you find. I keep thinking apotheosis but that isn't it.

No but thanks for the reply. It wasn't in the thesaurus under apotheosis or epiphany, so I will probably just never know it. I keep hearing "You will not find [sense of meaning/order] here..."

>reach climax, or maybe find meaning?
This would be a verb,

>something you find.
This would be a noun.


If it's the noun you're after, then perhaps

SATORI

fits the bill. It's the Buddhist equivalent of many of the words suggested.
