Descent of Golden Ball
The story of the golden
ball and Bhagavan's experiances
It's been said that the phenomenon of
Deeksha (Oneness Blessing) began
with the descent of the Golden Ball of Divine Grace into the children at the
Jeevashram School in 1989,
but actually it all began well before that--when Bhagavan was only four
It was in 1953 when the Golden Ball first appeared to Bhagavan. At the young
age of four Bhagavan felt driven to chant a mantra over and over again into
this mystical orb of light, as a way of charging it with his Divine intent
to end suffering for all of humanity through enlightenment.
This special mantra wasn't found in any of the Indian scriptures, nor did
Bhagavan learn it from anyone. It was revealed to him by unseen forces, and
completely beyond his control as he was involuntarily compelled to chant it
24 hours a day.
Whether Bhagavan was sleeping, awake, at school, at play--no matter what he
was doing--the chanting continued. Throughout all of this Bhagavan had the
feeling that all his passion for human awakening, and his deep desire to
help humanity was being transferred into the Golden Ball.
The chanting occurred inside Bhagavan's head 24 hours of the day for 21
years until he was 25 years old, and he was never able to stop it. As it
continued, Bhagavan felt as though the Golden Ball was growing more and more
powerful in its purpose.
After 21 years of continuous chanting, suddenly one day the chanting
stopped...and the Golden Ball disappeared. At that point Bhagavan said he
felt there was a reason for its disappearance and that it would reappear
again at some point later in his life. He also felt that when that happened
it would be the signal for him to begin his higher mission.
Unknown to each other, Amma
Padmavati had also been seeing this same Golden Ball since she was a
child. Despite being raised in different towns, it seems that both Amma and
Bhagavan were aligned with the same grand plan. Then in 1989 when the Golden
Ball finally reappeared and descended into the children at the
transporting them into extremely high states of consciousness, Amma and
Bhagavan knew it was time to proceed with their Divine mission.
