VIII. Lord of Time and Space

Sacred treasures from the Past
How Baba brings a necklace from Lord Rama’s times.

Sri G V Subba Rao, a distinguished diplomat who retired as the Head of the Energy Division in the United Nations, shares this fascinating event that he was privileged to witness when he was with Baba in Kodaikanal a few years ago:

Baba often advises devotees not to be fascinated by the miraculous manifestation of material objects but to concentrate on the spiritual power behind the creation.

Baba, in Kodaikanal, while relating the glorious story of Hanuman's devotion, materialised a most dazzling necklace of 1O8 large shining pearls and stated that this was the necklace that mother Sita gifted to Hanuman at the Coronation of Sri Rama. But Hanuman's devotion and concentration on the Lord was so one-pointed that he bit the pearls in order to see Lord Rama's image in them but failing to find it, threw away the priceless chain as useless. Hanuman's attention was not on the necklace but on his Lord and Master.

Baba held aloft the necklace and showed it around. I could clearly see the teeth marks on some of the pearls and even the image of Hanuman's face in the pearls!

Swami's miracles transcend time and space, and his miracles are like calling cards - like tickets of entry into the realm of the Divine Caller or Creator…

Once when I remarked to Swami that He is Siddha Sankalpa Purusha, Swami immediately corrected me and said He is Sankalpa Siddha. He stated that Siddha Sankalpa refers to the powers of Siddha Purusha (enlightened being) with acquired - and therefore, depletable Yogic powers whereas Sankalpa Siddha signifies the state "mere WILLING IS FULFILLING “!

Swami's miraculous powers are the most natural and spontaneous manifestations of His love and grace to the devotees”.
