What is the harm in not believing in God's existence?

If we have no faith in God, we will be born again

in this world and will undergo considerable miseries.

The Ignorant, faithless doubting self goes to destruction.

He cannot enjoy the least happiness. Neither this world

nor that beyond is there for the doubting self. Those

who have no faith in God do not know what is right

and what is wrong. They have lost the power of discrimination.

They are untruthful. proud and egoistic.

They are given to excessive greed, wrath and lust. They

hoard up money by unlawful means. They become men

of demoniacal nature. They commit various sorts of

atrocious crimes They have no ideals for their lives.

[hey are thrown into demoniacal wombs. They sink into

he lowest depths, deluded birth after birth.

Some one hundred and fifty years ago there lived a

Very famous Yogi-jnani by name Sadasiva Brahmendra

Sarasvati in Nerur, near Karur, in the district of

Tiruchirapalli in South India. He is the author of

Brahma Sutra Vritti and Atma Vidya Vilasa and various 

other books. He has done innumerable miracles. Once

when he was absorbed in Samadhi on the banks of the

Cauvery, he was carried away by the flood and thrown

somewhere else. He was deeply buried underneath the

sand. Labourers went to plough the fields, They hit

against the head of the Yogi and some blood oozed out.

They dug out, and to their great astonishment, they

found a Yogi seated in Samadhi.

On another occasion, as an Avadhuta, Sadasiva

Brahmendra entered the Zenana of a Mohammedan chief

naked. The chief was quite enraged at the sage. He cut

off one of the arms of the Mahatma. Sadasiva Brahman

walked away without uttering a word and without

showing any sign of pain. The chief was greatly

astonished at this strange condition of the sage. He

thought that this man must be a Mahatma, a superhuman

being, He repented much and followed the sage to

apologize. Sadasiva never knew that his arm was cut off.

When the chief narrated to the sage what had happened

in the camp, Sadasiva excused the chief and simply

touched his maimed arm. Sadasiva Brahman had a fresh

arm. It is the life of this sage that made a very deep

impression in my mind. I came to a very definite

conclusion that there is a sublime divine life independent

of objects and the play of the mind and the senses. The

sage was quite unconscious of the world. He did not

feel a bit when his arm was cut off. He ought to have

been absorbed in the Divine Consciousness, he ought to

have been one with the Divine. Ordinary people yell out

when there is even a pin-prick in their bodies. When 1

heard of the marvellous incident in the life of Sage

Sadasiva from Apta persons and when I read in the

book, it gave me a very strong conviction about the

Divine Existence and a divine eternal life where all

sorrows melt, where all desires are satisfied and one gets

supreme bliss, supreme peace and supreme knowledge.
