This is wonderful experience of Sai sister who did not mention her name.
She says: Dear Sai Devotee Hetal
"""Following the advice & principles of Shri Shirdi Sainath + Sincere Attempt + Unshakeable Faith & Patience even after failures = Shri Sai's Amazing Help"""Wish to share with others about a miracle as a proof that Shirdi Shri Sainath will certainly help, if one's work is attempted sincerely with unconditional devotion to their gods & gurus. If our sincere attempts go in vain then it is an absolute test whether we still have faith & love for Sai & if we pass that test, we will get amazing results. I had a longtime wish to print & distribute the cards with Sainath's photo in front & some verses in back. Some way or other i could not make it positively. Once a situation again happened to me that i took sample to a printing press for offset print.
The owner of the press is a very practical man & he strictly told could take up an order only for Ten thousand prints at the rate of Rs.5000/- (0.50 paise per card) which is high for my capacity. As this is almost the case in every press, i do not want to go in search of other press. Praying to Sai to help me, i proceeded with the same owner telling i am not doing this for commercial purpose so why not consider 1000 prints. He said ok but charged Rs.2000/- for 1000 prints as the matter is in both front & back sides of the card (Rs.2/- per card) & also said this will be possible only if i can wait from a week to 10 days as he will combine this work with other works so that he will not incur loss for the sheets.
I agreed for the time but with dissatisfaction about the cost, Two Rupees per card instead of 0.50 paise but still said ok and finally requested him to consider reducing the price later on while delivering the cards. He without saying anything asked for an advance & i paid him Rs.500/-. A week passed, i phoned him & conveyed that he can even double-up the quantity from 1000 to 2000 cards but rate be adjusted at Rs.2,500 which works round Rs.1.25 instead of 2.00. That day he was in a good mood & said, "Madam do not worry i wont charge heavily & give you the best option as i understand that is not for business". He asked me to call after 3 days.
After couple of days, on a wednesday evening without any plans i just went to a Saibaba temple prayed him to help me in doing food donation to all the beggars presented there some 50 persons (as that was a strong desire to me on that day because mostly i can give food & money only to few beggars & cannot cover up everyone). As wished i did that successfully donating food packets to all the beggars. I came home & night i was speaking to Sai telling "Baba if you decide to help in a big way no one can stop & the help remains very satisfied for whole life & nothing can replace that moment.
Similarly i told Baba you have unique divinity with kindness to surprise the devotees at times from the experiences of other devotees i have read so far". I told Baba like "What if suddenly the owner of the press says to me i have printed 3000 cards that is 1000 prints extra than planned & also with half the price that is the same 0.50 paise which he quoted for minimum of 10,000 cards. I forgot that & went for other work. Next day Thursday, I phoned up to know the status praying to Sai and THIS IS THE ANSWER CAME FROM THE OWNER - "MADAM YOU CAN COLLECT THE CARDS THE SAME EVENING (THURSDAY). MADAM I HAVE PRINTED 3000 CARDS AS AGAINST THE PLANNED 2000 AND I HAVE ALSO LAMINATED BOTH SIDES FOR SHINE & I WILL NOT CHARGE MUCH. YOU HAVE PAID RS.500/- ADVANCE. ((NOW WITH HIS FURTHER KIND TONE)), HE ASKED WITH AN OPTION LIKE STATEMENT, CAN YOU PAY ME ONLY RS.1000/-, CAN YOU HAVE THE CAPACITY PLEASE AS I DO NOT WANT TO BURDEN YOU AS THIS WORK IS ABOUT GODS?"
I WAS DUMBFOUNDED FOR FEW SECONDS AS THIS WAS THE CALCULATION I WAS SPEAKING TO SHRI SAINATH A DAY BEFORE & WAS PRAISING ABOUT HIS UNIQUE SURPRISES FOR OTHER DEVOTEES....... TO ME SHRI SAINATH ALREADY PLANNED & FINISHED HIS WORK & MADE ME TO THINK THAT CALCULATION LATER ?!!! OR SAI IS TELLING ME IN A WAY WHY SHOULD NOT THIS CALCULATION HAPPEN IF IT IS IN SAINATH'S CONTROL ??!!! NOW I HAVE NO WORDS TO SAY FURTHER...AND DO NOT WANT TO CONCLUDE AS LET SHRI SAINATH'S GRACE BE BESTOWED CONTINUOUSLY FOR ALL DEVOTEES....... HAIL THE THE LIVING GOD SHRI SAINATH OF SHIRDI. SPREAD THE GLORY OF SHRI SAI.
TO ALL I WISH TO SAY, ALWAYS SINCERELY HOLD SHIRDI SAI..., DO NOT LEAVE SAI... IF YOU STILL SUFFER, THEN THAT IS KARMA RELATED BUT HOLDING SHIRDI SAI WILL HELP TO SURPASS THE SUFFERINGS OR SAI WILL HELP BY MINIMIZE THE DIFFICULTY.
SHRI SATCHITAANANDA SADGURU SAINATH MAHARAJ KI JAI.
