Ramana Maharshi About Pure Materialists

Devotee: A pure materialist does not believe in God. How are we to deal with him?

Bhagavan: He will come gradually, step by step, to find out the source of I. First, adversity will make him feel that there is a power beyond his control, upsetting his plans. Then,he will begin with rituals, ceremonial worship, and through japa, kirtan, dhyana, go on to vichara.

For we know nothing about God or any source from which power comes and gets into us. All that is not known. But I exist is known beyond all dispute by all men. So let us know who that I is. If,after knowing it, there still remain any doubts such as are now raised, it will be time enough then to try and clear such doubts.

Dear prasanth,

Yes. Suffering is the catalyst for materialists, agnostics and athiests
to come to the path of devotion and then to realize God.

Arunachala Siva.
