Sharing with you all a very touching experience of Sai brother Ramsaiprakash.
Sai Ram to Everyone,
My name is Ramsaiprakash. I am a humble salve of Saibaba. This is first time i visited Shirdi and i was very much afraid before going because i was alone when i started my journey. WHO ARE IN HURRY CAN KINDLY GO DOWN AND READ ONLY MIRACLE PART.
I Don't know how to describe. I don't vave words to say about my experience.
When I started my Journey by the Grace of Baba, I met one guy in my compartment in train. He is also coming to Shirdi. My seat no. was 34 and his is 38. He only asked me that are you coming to Shirdi. Then I said Yes. This is my first visit. Can you help me. Then he told me that nothing was to worry, I am visiting Shirdi from last 10 years and this is my 17th visit. Then I become very happy. Because he told me that he know each and every place in Shirdi in and around. Within half an hour he become a close friend (Like My family member). He asked me when you are coming back. I told I didn't plan because I didn't get return ticket Reservation. He asked me that "I am coming back on 20th will you come with me". Then I said Yes. He called to his friend who is Bangalore and asked him to reserve two tickets in tatkal and told him to mail the tickets to his email ID. (Next morning 17th only his friend confirmed the return ticket and mailed it).
Then I was thinking of accommodation. He told me that he had come with his two cousins and they had already reserved the room in lodge. But he told that he had a friend in Shirdi and he will arrange a room for you don't worry. Then I felt relaxed. But after some time one lady came with her son to our compartment. She was also coming to Shirdi. After talking for one hour she asked me where you are staying in Shirdi. Then I told I have not planned but my friend will arrange a room for me. Then she told me that she already booked a room for 1 day where lunch and dinner is free. She told me that she will be there in lodge for only two hours then she is going to Nasik with his son, if you want you can continue in that room only and I'll pay for one day.
See the Baba's Leela. Baba Arranged me return Ticket, A Room and a 16 times visited Experienced Friend What else I want from Baba.
Then next day we reached Kopergaon at 2 pm . We all me, my friend his 2 cousins, lady and his son total six members took an autorickshaw. First we visited THAPOBHOOMI where Baba did Tapasya for 16 years. Then we went to GODAVARI RIVER washed our faces and put some water on head. Then we went to Lodge. We took our bath and then at 5pm we went to KHANDOBA TEMPLE . 6-30 went to DARSHAN. By 8-30 we took DARSHAN at Samadhi Mandir then we reached Chavdi. Because that was Thursday night at 9-15pm we saw PALAKI UTSAVA (CHAVADI PROCESSION).
We went to room by 10 pm had dinner and then came back to DWARAKAMAI. We were in DWARAKAMAI till night 1.30 pm reading "SAI SATCHARITA" and writing "Om Sai Ram". Then we came back to room and slept.
Morning after breakfast we visit SHYMA's House, Malhasapati's home and then Laxmibai Shinde's Home.
By 12 pm we went to see PANCHAMUKHI GANESH (Vishnu Ganesh) Temple. That is about 2 km from Shirdi. We visited temple and had PRASAD (Lunch) there Only. Everyday after 12.30pm they will give FREE food (lunch) to everybody who visits temple. Prasad (ANDHRA STYLE LUNCH) was were delicious. Then we came back visit temple.
Sai Baba's Miracle
By evening my friend took me to visit SAI DHAM (I think Most people don't know the place) which about 22 Kms from Shirdi and 6 km from Kopergaon. One Sai Devotee Baba is there called DHONDI RAM BABA or CHAVAN BABA. By Saibaba's prerana (inspiration) he tells solutions and suggestions. (LIKE JYOTISHA or FUTURE TELLER or Saibaba will comes in his body and tells).
In that SAI DHAM campus one small home is there called SAI DHAMA. One Sai temple is there. One more room is there but that it is underground.
Some miracles are already there.
1. In Sai Dham in front of Baba's Statue on marble tiles on ground OM AND THRISHUL are appeared.
2. Behind Sai temple one coconut tree is there in that tree you can see Sai Baba's face appeared. (In television and News papers covered that news with photo) (photo is in Saidham Room)
3. In underground room in front of Baba on wall marble tiles Saibaba's Face is appeared.
4. There dog does Aarti.
We three people went there by 7-15 pm. Dhondi Baba's home is in front of SAI DHAM. After visiting SAIDHAM BUILDING we went to see Baba but when we saw DHONDI BABA he started shouting angrily "GET OUT...GET OUT...I DON'T TELL ANYTHING...GO FROM HERE..."
Then we came back to temple. After taking Darshan we came outside. We saw Dhondi Baba coming from his house going towards SAIDHAM. Then again we went there. However he saw us again started shouting "Why don't you understand. Go away. I am not going to tell anything." Then I asked Dhondi Baba that we are not expecting anything from you and don't tell anything but let us take blessing and give permission to touch your feet. Then he agreed and stood in front of us. Then however I touched his feet he suddenly became cool and he blessed me and then he put his hand on my shoulder and told me to come inside. Then he took me in front of SAIBABA's Photo and shouts Baba is asking you dakshina give dakshina to him. Baba is asking you dakshina give dakshina to him he repeated. Suddenly I got shocked and I went near Sai Baba's photo and open my purse I saw there are two notes - one is FIVE HUNDRED and another one is ONE HUNDRED rupees. First I thought that to give 500 Rs. Then I changed my mind and then I put 100 Rs. infront of Baba's photo and came back. Then Dhondi Baba asked me first you wants to keep 500 Rs., then you kept 100 Rs. Isn't it?. I said "Yes". Then he told " Yesterday only you gave 500 Rs. in Shirdi isn't it? I said "Yes" (Because yesterday i.e. Thursday I gave 501 Rs. Donation in Shirdi).
Then with smile he asked "What you want from Baba". I said I don't want anything. Then he told your marriage will be fixed very soon go. (Tumhara Shaadi Jaldi Ho jayega, jao). Then he asked me that have any body suggested you to wear gem stone. I said yes. Then he asked who said you to wear gem stone. Then I told him that some astrologers told from last 2-3 years but I didn't wear it. Then he showed me he open his palm and showed me nothing was there then he told me take this Gem Baba told you to wear it. I open my palm and He give me one stone. (It was a Great Miracle From his bare hand he gave me one Stone which is sparkling). Then he told Sai baba gave that stone not me. Then he told to my friends that "Ye Sai Baba ka bacha hai, ye uska sacha Bhakt hai, iske hath me Saibaba ka hath hai - He is Sai Baba's child, he is His true devotee, he has Sai Baba's hand in his hand" Then again he told me, "Wo stone Saibaba ne diya hai maine nahi" - This stone is given by Sai Baba and not me". I don't know how to express how I felt at that time. After coming outside he gave prasad pockets to me and my friends from his home. My friends asked to tell something about them. He told them that you come before evening Art now i am not telling anything.
Then I came back when we reached Shirdi, it was 9 pm we had dinner in a hotel. Then again we come to DWARAKAMAI and we sit there till morning 4 am. We saw by 3-15am they open DHUNI and first they will take some (FIRE) (CHARCOAL) agni for Dhoopa to wake up SAIBABA in Samadhi Mandir. Then they take out UDI from Dhuni. And there shops will be open at 2 am. I took one coconut. DWARAKAMAI opens at 4 am. I kept coconut in front of Baba (there will be one basket, we have to make any wish and put the coconut in that plastic box) AGAIN we sat in DWARAKAMAI till morning arti. Then we went to lodge and slept for few hours.
Morning we went to Shani Shinganapur at 8 am and came back by 1 pm. Then I visited Lendi Bagh, Gurusthan, Nandadeep, Museum, Temples of Shivji, ShaniDev and Ganeshji, Datt Mandir. Again I took one more time Darshan. Then I purchased some books, key chains, photos, small statues, calendars. I gave donation and collected some UDI pockets.
Saturday night again I came to Dwarakamai and till 2-30am I was present there. I spend my time reading Sai Satcharita and writing Om Sai Ram. Then there was one Swamy called Radhamohan who always did service of Sai Baba. He gave me one copy of "SAI PRERANA" and told me to read it on every Thursday and read everyday if possible. Then he suggest me to write "Om Sai Ram\" is red ink. He gave me one Shiva Sai photo also. He told that by reading SAI PRERANA our all wishes comes true within short period.
One girl was sitting with Swamji. He showed me that girl and told that she was from Punjab, her name is VINU. She and her husband both are software engineers in IBM. From last so many years they are trying to go to abroad. But that is not possible. Some 2-3 months back when she visited Shirdi this Swamy gave her SAI PRERANA and told her to read it and to write "Om Sai Ram" as much as possible. Within one month her wish came true and now she is going New Zeland with her husband.
If any one wants SAI PRERANA he/she can mail me. I'll try to scan it mail that to you.
I know that there are so many grammar and spelling mistakes my mail. Please forgive the mistakes.
If anybody from Bangalore wants UDI can collect it from me. For more details or any kind of SAI SEVA I am here to do. Kindly give me the opportunity to serve the SAI DEVOTEES.
I AM A HUMBLE SLAVE OF SAI. ANY BODY CAN CALL ME ANY TIME FOR SAI SEVA OR SAI SEVAKS SEVA.
I AM ALWAYS HERE FOR 24/7 X 365.
OM SAI JAI SAI JAI JAI SAI
I REQUEST ALL DEVOTEES WHO READ MY EXPERIENCE KINDLY GIVE REPLY.. WAITING FOR YOUR REPLY.
