On May 5, 1991, Sathya Sai Baba materialized a golden egg that has several names and is rich with symbolism. Sai Baba said that the Hiranyagarbha Lingham (Golden heart Lingham) "contains the entire universe in a microscopic form. It is a manifestation of the Trinity - Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva (God as creator, Sustainer and Destroyer). It is also the Atmic consciousness (Holy Spirit) - like a thread running through a pearl necklace. It is also the soiritual heart." In the Spiritual Heritage Museum in Puttaparthi there is a quote by Baba referring to the lingham (linghams in general) as the "Cosmic Seed of Creation."

After Sai Baba had manifested it, He said that it is a great blessing for anyone to receive this photo and that it should be kept in every home. His energy will work miracles through it. This is the first time that anyone has ever heard Baba say this about any photo.

Here is the description that Dr. M. Doraisingham gives regarding the golden lingham:

Sai Baba had just materialized the Golden Lingham while standing on the auditorium stage at the Trayee Brindavan Summer Course assembly. Baba asked Professor Sampath to hold the lingham awhile so that Baba could watch the student cultural program. Professor Sampath is Vice Chancellor of the Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning, Puttaparthi, South India. He was thrilled beyond words. During the hour that Professor Sampath kept the lingham he became warm and said that he was in a "state of divine ecstasy."

After the conclusion of the cultural program, Swami played a little joke on Professor Sampath. He touched the professor's pocket as if to brush off some dust. Later, as they were riding in the car together, Baba asked Professor Sampath for the Golden Lingham. In his excitement to return the lingham to Sai Baba, Professor Sampath searched everywhere - his shirt pocket, trouser pockets, the car seat. But he couldn't find it. Finally, Baba gave a joyful laugh and said that He had sent the Golden Lingham back where it had come from.

Dr. Doraisingham also said that on June 7, 1991, while walking to darshan to see Baba, he came upon a dead child beside the road side, held by his mother. The doctor had just been given the Golden Lingham photo and held it against the child, who had just fallen out of an overcrowded van onto the road and been killed. He chanted "Om Sai Ram" (mantra chanted by devotees of Sathya Sai Baba) many times while praying to Baba and massaged the boy's chest and abdomen. The dead child was restored to life with the energy of Sai moving through the photo and the next day, in an interview with a friend of Dr. Doraisingham, Baba confirmed the entire incident. Baba impressed the doctor to stop, to heal the child using the photo, and later said to professor Anil Kumar "The child was dead at that point in time."

Information regarding the Golden Lingham was obtained from Connie Shaw, who received the correspondence from Dr. Doraisingham.
