I was reading on this swami guy named Baba that could materialize gold right in his hand!
My question is how do you do this? I could use the gold. I need money. He is some Yogi or something not a magician.
Apparently Baba is not a name but a great title.
How does he do it and how could we do this? I am sure we all could use this knowledge.
Please see the excellent answers below to know just who this man even is. I have awarded dipen best answer because he has really accurately and respectfully portrayed this man and many before him like him.
@Wade Casaldi If this refers to maha-avatar babaji from India Then I must tell you that this man is THE MASTER OF THE PHYSICAL UNIVERSE ,HE CAN DO ANYTHING IMAGINABLE .There were many such baba's in India such as SAI BABA who turned a flower bud into diamond and gave it to a disciple from australia who still has that,shining piece of diamond.The disciple's name is HOWARD MURPHET .SAI baba had got amazing healing powers.He performed Christ-like miracles such as multiplying food materializing things out of thin air .Many infertile women came to baba and HE ORDERED SOULS FROM THE ETHER TO TAKE BIRTH IN THEIR WOMB ,Thus those women were blessed with children.
SINCE I AM FROM INDIA AND THESE HINDU-YOGIS ARE FROM INDIA I CAN PROVIDE YOU WITH SOME INFO . THERE WERE REMARKABLE YOGIS IN INDIA EX-
Sri Gorakhnath was a yogi who in his 12th year went to Badrinarayan and performed worship for 12 long years, living on air alone. He once made a toy child out of clay and gave this as a play-mate for the children of a certain village. He converted a portion of a mountain into gold and reconverted it to its former condition. He passed urine on a rock. It became gold. Once in a Kumbhamela on the banks of the Godavari, he gave food to all by spreading only leaves but offered different rich meals to the liking of everyone. In the same Mela he slowly reduced himself in bulk and assumed the form of a mosquito (Anima Siddhi). Through his own Yogic power he burnt himself to ashes and again assumed his original form. He did Akasagamanam (walking in the sky). In this way he performed many Siddhis. Raja Bhartrihari was his disciple.
There was once a yogi who angered a king and his hand was cut off and in a blink of an eye he materialized another hand.
NOW when it comes to Maha-avatar babaji he has got extra ordinary powers he can materialize food from thin air but when it comes to materializing GOLD and other JEWELS he will do it easily but he will never use his powers for his personal benefits and selfish purposes ,these powers are achieved trough training from an enlightened master an to reach your destination you have so sacrifice your worldly pleasure and conquer your senses Even if one uses it for his own selfish purposes then he is going to lose his powers.
GOD BLESS U WITH LOTS OF LOVE FROM A HINDU FROM INDIA.

When I first became aware of esoteric/mystical notions regarding manifestation, I was strongly attracted to the literature and culture of India, as it seemed to be the place where "miracles" and tales of manifestation still abounded. Whereas most of Western civilization did not seem to believe in this stuff anymore (our mystical-magical notions having greatly faded since the "Age of Reason"), India was still "the land of miracles" where accounts of modern wizards, saints and miracle-workers abounded.
I immersed myself in the accounts of these reputed expert manifesters, and came across some pretty interesting things such as:
Trailingaswami, who manifested all sorts of objects out of thin air, and lived to more than 250 years of age.
Swami Khatkhatananda, who supplied an entire feast for a huge crowd by periodically materializing food out of thin air.
The list goes on and on.
I once studied for a few months under a Yogi in the American northeast who was himself a disciple of the "old school" mystical yogis. He ran (and still runs) classes on the materialization of phenomena via "psychic" means. I stopped only because it was just then that I found Inward Quest, and the techniques available to me here were logistically easier for me to implement on a regular basis.
That said, I feel strongly that something was happening while doing these yogic exercises. At several points I even began to see a blue flame slowly wavering in my center of vision (with eyes closed) after doing certain exercises.
The exercises involved a series of pranayamas in conjunction with certain visualizations relating to the nadis, chakras and psychic channels. There were a few other esoteric things as well involving sound and vibration. The following book contains an explanation and overview of the exercises, although you would have to take one of the classes I took to get the "complete" treatment:
Here is a quote from the book to give you a sense of it...the author was a disciple of Swami Sivananda:
In terms of technique, I would say that the above book "spills the beans" more than any other that I've read.
If you want to do further reading about the "miracle working" Saints and Yogis, I would recommend the above book as well as Autobiography of a Yogi, and The Walking Shiva of Varanasi (the latter contains the spiritual treatise of Trailingaswami), and The Miracles of Swami Sivananda, which is available for free online:
Also the following book, which I've referred to before in previous IQ posts: http://www.amazon.com/Great-Masters-Himalayas-Their-Teachings/dp/0766103617/
And a free (partial?) version is available here on Google books.
Good luck, and feel to ask any more questions.
Due to interest from a few people, I've posted a few links with substantial info on these psychic "miracle-working" yogis...for those who want to do further reading:
His disciples call him Baba so I have taken the liberty of editing his name in your question.
From a manifesting point of view, he is not doing anything that anybody else cannot do. He has just become good at it and can show live things appearing out of nowhere.
Personally, I don't think this is different from manifesting anything else. Unlike most of us, he has not set limits on what he can manifest by mainly looking at what others around him have and have not been able to manifest and therefore, holds no resistance.

I actually asked Rob's Treb something like this question, but more so on just how we was able to achieve this level of manifesting. Hopefully the explanation he gave to me could help a little. Here is a link from an explanation given by him.
After about the 10 minute mark I think is when he starts explaining how we was able to do it.
First off.. is this Babaji, the 2000 yr old, from India you're speaking of ? He is able to appear & reappear as a young man, or old man, at will... it would be nothing for him to materialize gold right in his hand. If you want to know more about Babaji, do a search for Leonard Orr, & he studied under him for years, & knows more about him than any other person at this time...

Back in the 1970s a good friend and author of several books, Roy Eugene Davis went to India to observe Sri Sai Baba.
Roy brought back some articles Sai Baba had "manifested." I photographed these articles for a book Roy was writing.
One of these articles was a ring. Sai Baba asked Roy what he would like as a gift. Roy said, "I want a ring with your picture on it." Sai Baba closed his empty hand tightly. when he opened it, the ring was there.
I looked at the ring closely. It was, excuse me, cheaply made. The picture of Sai Baba was a halftone (made up of dots), the ring itself was adjustable, like a ring you might get in a vending machine.
BUT Roy asked and Sai Baba manifested it -- or somehow transported it from somewhere else. Roy and I don't know, but it was, as Roy said, "Damned interesting!"
I don't remember if Sai Baba was considered a great guru at the time. This was 40 years ago. Indian "Holy Men" were just beginning to make a dramatic imporssion on the psychic community in Atlanta.
I remember one man, Swami Adona Ley, disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda, who came to stay with me and my wife at the time. He was really cool! Great sense of humor. I remember someone asked him the most important posture for practicing yoga. He said it was standing up on your own two feet.
He also said that the spiritual energy was changing focus to the west (USA) and coming our way like a boxcar on wheels and that there were a lot of Indian holy men appearing to push it in our direction, but that it was coming on its own.
He said, "many of my countrymen (India) come to your rich country and, how you say, are able to fill their arms with more (goodies) than they can carry."
I remember seeing a picture that seemed strangely in-congruent. A "guru" in robe and turban stepping out of a Rolls Royce with an air of pride and validation. Pride? Validation? Not a state of desirelessness.
I was an avid reader on a variety of subjects. Adona could converse fluently on any subject I suggested. Many of these subjects were very new and avaunt guard. I never saw him read anything.
I asked him how he was able to know so much about any subject? He replied that it was "all there, in the air."
Paramahansa (Divine Swan) and Yogananda (union of bliss) Interesting name. Was also a fascinating character. I never knew him, but his book "Autobiography of a Yogi" is a wonderful read!
Once he was walking with a group of disciples. The sun was boiling hot. A disciple decided to help. He chanted and danced and worked very hard. A cloud came up and obscured the Sun. Yogananda thanked him, and said, "Why didn't you just get a parasol?"
Yes, this question was asked of TReb and he explained that basically he was able to with pure connection, but as he got older, and his ego with money and notoriety took hold, he started to fake it because he became so disconnected. This was a great surprise to me as well.
