John Hislop, a famous devotee of Sathya Sai Baba, described in his book the story of the materialization of a unique ring. Sathya Sai Baba materialized a ring with the image of Prema Sai Baba to Hislop. Over time, the image of Prema Sai on this ring began to change. Prema Sai Baba was destined to appear on Earth several years after the physical departure of Sathya Sai Baba. There are several points of view about the exact date of his birth. A gold ring with a brown stone, on which the miraculous profile of Prema Sai Baba is miraculously visible. The bridge of the nose and the length of the nose are visible, and the arch of the left eye is also visible. A noble head with shoulder-length hair, mustache and beard, posing for or emerging from a lotus flower. Its appearance is serene and majestic. Sathya Sai Baba explained to Hislop about the image of Prema Sai Baba on the ring, he said that the form of Prema Sai Baba is just being formed, so I cannot more accurately show his face. This is the first time that Prema Sai Baba has been shown to the world. Before the materialization of this unique ring, Sathya Sai Baba had mentioned that in the next life he would incarnate as Prema Sai Baba, but did not show his future form to the world.
Wherever Hislop went, whoever he met, the devotees asked him to show the ring. After a year or more, devotees who had seen the ring earlier noticed that the image was changing. A year after the manifestation of the ring, the nose became more clearly visible on the relief. Of course this is a small detail, but it showed the miraculousness of the ring. In fact, it is a living ring that showed the process of forming the form of Prema Sai Baba. Hislop himself honestly said that he did not notice any changes, but his friends replied: "you do not notice it, because you see this ring every day."
Once, when Hislop was at a meeting with devotees, showing the ring, he decided to examine the ring more closely. He was amazed because he realized that it was a completely different ring. Now the nose was fully visible, although initially it was not, or rather the nose was melted by the edge of the stone. In addition, a part of the left eye and cheek became better visible.
