A Bracelet Infused With Love
I love a challenge, but more so it was a joy and humbling to be asked to make a bracelet incorporating an image of a Guru that one of my friends loves and cherishes with all her heart.
Just hearing her talk about him you can feel the passion, belief and unconditional love flow from her very being, it’s catching!
I confess I didn’t know much about Sai Baba, so when she asked me to incorporate his image into a bracelet, it necessitated me doing a bit of research.
She told me that she wished it to be with rose quartz, ‘the crystal for love’, a crystal that had come into her life also when she attended a recent meditation session held by another of our friends, Jasmine who runs Emerald and Tiger
So it only seems fitting that I tell you a little bit about Sai Baba, though there is a lot more to learn, I will just touch a tiny bit on this subject as there are many more far more experienced than me in this particular matter.
As taken from Awakening Times
A long time ago, at the beginning of the eighteenth century, a young bearded man with sparkling eyes took shelter in a mosque, in Shirdi Village (of Maharashtra State, In India). Nobody knew from where this stranger had come who hardly spoke a word and stayed there.
Gradually the curious villagers started offering food to the man, but he never asked anything from them. Sometimes he shared his food with the animals. Soon the young fakir, as he was started to be addressed, started expressing his viewpoints with few elderly villagers. His simple language of expression and his special power of solving the problems of poor needy and destitute soon made this less known fakir, known as Shri Sai Baba. As the days passed, devotees started streaming into Shirdi in ever growing numbers. The village was fast becoming a centre of pilgrimage. As gifts and presentations flowed in, the pomp and ceremony of Sai worship were evolving. Everyday Sai Baba would be a pauper having distributed all among the needy and the poor. But Sai Baba’s life of a Fakir remained calm, undisturbed, unaltered and therein is the saint’s Spiritual glory.
So the challenge was set and met with a thrill to be able to complete it so that she could take it to India with her to be fully energized with all that she wishes. As well as the rose quartz, a vintage silver heart shaped locket that had been waiting for the perfect opportunity presented itself within which I could put not one but two images.
Thank you Rajni for the invite to learn a little more about this very special person that you cherish to much and for bringing him to my attention.
