Sathya Sai Baba’s Feet Garlanded With Pearls By The Ocean

In December 1958, Sathya Sai Baba visited Kanyakumari, the Southern most tip of India, with a few devotees. The privileged few were a witness to a charming occurrence there, which demonstrated the divine power and majesty of Bhagawan in no small measure. Here is one of them recorded by Prof. Kasturi:

In the evening when the sky had turned into a carnival of pink and purple, and the clouds had decorated themselves with golden fringes, Baba proceeded to the seashore and with His Bhaktas (devotees) around Him, played with the waves of the seas that mingle there. Each succeeding wave seemed to be more eager than the previous one to touch His lotus Feet, and to offer Him its own special homage.

Suddenly, as if aware of the yearning of the seas, Baba stood facing the waters and said to those beside Him, “See! The Ocean is welcoming Me, with a Garland.”

At the very moment one could discern a stately wave a few yards away, advancing majestically towards the shore and, soon it swept Baba’s Feet and receded.

Imagine the wonder and amazement of every one when they found, around Baba’s Feet a bewitching pearl garland, swaying and swinging with every surge of the waters around them!

One hundred and eight translucent pearls each a priceless gem, strung on a thread of gold! O, how charming Baba looked! The Avatar of the Lord receiving the homage of Varuna (The Lord of the Oceans)!
