In the Vision of God, Volume 1, by Swami Ramdas, pg 240


One night a number of students, headed by a leader, came to interview Ramdas. They belonged to a sect called Charvak, allied to materialism. Their leader discussed 'till one o'clock, contending that the body was all and that life was intended only for material enjoyment. Everything was merely nature and its work; their was no such thing as Soul, spirit or God as controller of the worlds.

Ramdas told him at last: "Friend, Ramdas cannot prove to you by mere arguments the existence of God, nobody can. Ramdas from his own experience can boldly assert that there is God. Until you yourself get the experience, it is natural that you should deny Him. But a time will come when you too will have faith in Him."
