Materialisation of a Golden Necklace

Bhagawan created a sparkling gold necklace and explained its significance on July 3rd, 2005.

3rd July 2005 (Morning)

Being Sunday, the students of Sri Sathya Sai Primary School, Sri Sathya Sai Higher Secondary School and Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning were seated in Sai Kulwant Hall by 7.30 a.m. Bhagawan came out at 8.00 a.m. and sat on the dais facing the students and devotees. After a while, at 8.45 a.m., Swami called one of the Veda teachers and gave some instructions. A former student, presently working in Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust was called by Bhagawan to translate the Vedic chant into English for the benefit of other students and devotees. The Mantra chosen was Narayanopanishad. The student gave an apt translation of each line of this Vedic Mantra. Bhagawan was very keenly listening to the translation.

When the word Vaikuntha was used while translating the line 'Vaikuntha Bhuvana Lokam Gamishyati', Swami asked him the meaning of Vaikuntha. The student then spelt out the meaning of Vaikuntha as that which is all pervasive. After the entire Mantra was recited with explanation, Bhagawan called the student. Even as everyone was watching him come forward, Swami's right Hand moved in circles and out sprang a beautiful gold necklace! This was an ornamental thick necklace with so many intricate designs on it.

Bhagawan explained the significance of the necklace to the student and a teacher. Out of His love for devotees and other students, Swami asked the student to reveal the message to the audience.

This gold necklace contains the power of the sacred mantra - "Om Namo Narayanaya." He went on to explain that all the Vedas, Upanishads and the other scriptures illumine the path that man has to take to attain his final destination Divinity. The Mantra "Om Namo Narayanaya" contains the essence and power of all the scriptures. The fatherly and motherly aspect of divinity is contained in this Mantra. Without either of them, there can be no creation. But, if one were to contemplate deeply, one would realise that there is no difference between the two aspects - Purusha (God) and Prakruti (Nature), they are indeed one and the same. The power of this Mantra is contained in the necklace. The student continued, "All the Beejaksharas (root letters) of this Mantra are potentially present in this necklace.

Thus, it was verily a Mantropadesa by the Lord. No one, except Bhagawan can give the essence of this Mantra in a nutshell, yet so profoundly.

Bhajans started at 9.10 a.m. and by 9.20 a.m. Swami retired for the morning session to His abode.
