Subject: [SatGuru Discussion] Gold ring with Green stone
He materialised a
gold ring with a lage greenstone for Robert.
Sai Ram to All.
Swami materialised a gold ring with a large Green stone for a
western sai devotee from our center 2 yrs. back and placed it on
his LT. ring finger, over his wedding ring.
Last yr. Swami asked my husband if he wanted his old ring he was
wearing on his LT. ring finger to be changed, and, when my
husband said yes, HE tossed the old ring to everyone in the room
to see and then took it back and blew on it 3 times and changed
it to a gold ring with a very large GREEN stone and sent it
around again for everyone to see. Then HE put it on my husband's
RT. ring finger and told him, Bangaroo, wear it on the RT. ring
This year in January Swami called our group for an interview. We
were 8 in our group and there were 10 from other countries. HE
materialised 2 Green rings at two different times and placed one
on the RT. ring finger of a Russian and another on the RT. ring
finger of an Indian (I don't know here
he is from). Swami did not speak either the significance of
Green stone, or why Rt. or Lt. finger.
Does anyone know what Swami said about the Green ring? and also
the significance of wearing it on the Rt. or Lt. ring finger?
Thanks for your reply.
With Divine Love,
Sai Ram, again.
“GR” had mentioned that
“Swami asked my husband”. I presume she is our dear
sister. Anyway, she had desired to get some information on the
Green Ring, and the Importance of keeping it in right hand
finger. I shall narrate some experiences I had with Swami, which
might give more insight to such Grace of our Loving Lord.
Years ago, some 7 years ago, I
was directed by Swami to go into the interview room. Naturally my
wife too walked over and joined me. Inside the interview room,
Swami announced to other devotees who had also been blessed with
the rare chance of interview, that “This man (pointing at me) is
entering his 60th year birthday today, and I am going
to conduct their wedding. The announcement was very sweet.
(For more details you can
read my book “Sri Sathya Sai Hrudaya Nivasi”, which is also
available in my website: www.bombaysrinivasan.com
Swami created first a “Thirumangalyam”
which I had to tie around the neck of my wife. Then Swami created
a gold ring having large green stone in it. Swami gave it to my
wife, and asked her to insert in my right hand ring finger. While
she was inserting that ring, Swami was telling me, “This is
an Emerald Ring. This is for peace, and you now need peace”.
How true it was!!
Years passed. I was attending to
the Gold fixing job in Sai Kulwant Hall. Swami used to come over
there for inspection. One day, Swami suddenly asked me, “Do
you know why I had selected this colour (green) as a background
for the Golden designs?”. I replied that I did not know
and that we were only following Swami’s command. Swami caught hold
of my hand, and pointing to the ring, which I was blessed with,
Swami again asked, “Do you remember what I said, when I gave
this ring?” I replied, “Swami, yes Swami I remember well.”
Swami asked me to tell what Swami had said. I told, “Swami said,
that this is Emerald and Emerald is for peace, and you now need
Swami smiled at me,
and said, “Exactly. See many devotees come here. All are having
some problem or other. Many of them are not having peace of mind.
Some have problems on money, business, health, education, family
problems, and so on. I cannot give emerald ring to everybody. So
what I have done? I have converted the entire Kulwant Hall into an
Emerald Hall. All those who are sitting here, will be receiving
the shower of peace, even though they may not be aware of it.
!!!!. See, I am doing this only for the sake of the devotees!!!!”
This encounter with Swami was
really wonderful. Instead of roaming around the streets and other
places, and chit chatting with friends and others, it will be good
for us to sit inside Kulwant Hall, as much time as possible, and
try to absorb the peace rays which are showering on our heads.
Now our dear sister had asked
about the importance of right hand. In Indian traditions, we use
only right hand for any good and auspicious acts. Like serving
food, giving something to somebody, and to receive something from
somebody, to wave Arathi to Swami, to do Archana
(Placing flowers) etc. etc, including eating food. As such right
hand is supposed to be very auspicious, and hence Swami generally
slips the rings on the right hand fingers.
Wonderful, isn’t it???
