WORLD BEARS WITNESS TO GOD’s EXISTENCE
Baba said, “God is the sole Proprietor” in Sri Sai Satcharitra, Ch. 18 &19.
After the Russian Revolution, atheism became a powerful movement all over the Republic of the Soviet Union. Atheists set about to destroy all places of worship – temples, churches and mosques were systematically pulled down.
Flushed with the success of their ‘achievement’, the atheists crowed, “Where is God?”
In a remote village in Russia, an atheist came upon a poor, old woman turning the beads of the rosary in pious worship.
“Throw away your rosary, you foolish woman!” he thundered, “There is no God to hear your prayers.”
The old woman calmly gazed into his eyes.
“You may say what you please, brother!” she said gently. “But everything in this world bears witness to His existence.”
“You may close down temples, churches and mosques, but you cannot extinguish the stars. Every star bears witness to the truth that God is.”
