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