"Baba materialized these for me during my first
trip to India in 1971. There were three of us; we had had 17
interviews in a row. On the last day he called in a large group of
people. It was a long interview in which he talked about anything
and everything. He manifested the earrings and told me that the
figures on the earrings were Lakshmi, the goddess of all forms of
wealth, and a conch shell. The conch shell represents the highest
plane of consiousness. I was so surprised, shocked and overwhelmed.
It was my first trip. I had seen many materializations during the
trip, but I was really shocked when he materialized these earrings
I couldn't wear these earrings because the posts
were too thick. They're like that in India. Earrings are symbolic of
marriage in India. These earrings are symbolic of many things, but
who can understand Baba and why he does what he does?"
