Sai Baba's Nine Thursday's Vrat Miracles - Sai Devotee Sharada
Sharing herewith experience of Sai sister Sharada ji.
Sairam Hetalji - you are doing a wonderful job in spreading BABAji's love and making all our faith in our beloved SAI strong. Keep up the good work and we all pray let SAI help you in all ways.
I am posting my experience or miracle of our beloved SAI.i request you to please post these experiences with corrections where ever you feel it is appropriate. Thank you and let SAI always bless all.

I have innumerable experiences of our SAI. Today i am telling one that happened 2 years back. I do not know from where to start. Ok let me tell you all that i am staying abroad. Since the rentals are high here my husband was keen on buying our own apartment. For buying we need to shell out a lot of money as premium as buying the apartment here means we have to pay much more than the actual cost which is referred to as premium (any fancy amount decided by the seller). And to top of it my husband always goes overboard when we buy anything because he likes all that is big and beautiful. So definitely it meant he was hunting for a big apartment.

In the first place i was not at all interested in buying but because of the high rentals i agreed but i was feeling since we are only 2 persons staying we can go for a small compact apartment. So there was huge difference of opinion which led to a lot of ugly arguments and unnecessary fights regarding this issue of buying the apartment. I was feeling very tensed and agitated about the whole process - that is when i begged Babaji for help. One day before going to see one apartment i just opened the Shri Sai Satcharitra book and read one page and mentally prayed BABAji with full faith that please come and help us in finding the apartment of my liking - small compact one and some how see to it that my husband likes it and approves it and promised i will perform SHREE SAI VRAT (9 THURSDAY POOJA) if he fulfills this wish as soon as possible.

And LO! BABAji was there like a true father helping his daughter when she called out for help. That very day i prayed to our dear BABAji we settled for a apartment of my liking - small compact and above all with all very excellent facilities and to top it there was no premium we got it much below than the actual cost which is truly a miracle because it is impossible to get such a good place at this cost. It was truly BABAji's prasad. We both became very happy and satisfied.

Now once we bought the apartment we fixed a date for the Grihapravesh (house warming cermony). My husband does not believe in ceremonies and rituals - so i was not sure whether he will agree to have proper pooja on Grihapravesh. And above all since we are abroad it was difficult to find a priest who will conduct the pooja as per our liking. But again Babaji helped us in getting all the pooja done to my satisfaction. One of our friends directed us to a priest who will do the pooja as per our wants. When we were entering the temple where the priest stays we were greeted by BABAji's presence - he was inside one of the car that was parked just outside the temple. Actually the temple is on a busy commercial road. Yet my eyes fell on BABAJI'S IDOL on such a chaotic hustle-bustle road.

The priest told us he was ready to perform the pooja - specifically the SatyaNarayan Pooja and Vaastu pooja and told all the list of materials required. The time of the pooja was early morning. We were 3 of us me and my husband and the priest. As the pooja started the priest asked us to bring God's Photo or idol. We were surprised as we did not carry any God's photo or idol to our new house since the priest did not mention about it. The priest told us now since we do not have one the priest will place supari (bettle nut) and lets all treat this supari as God. We agreed and i was feeling terribly bad about the whole thing of not having God's photo. All of a sudden my husband remembered that he has a pocket photo of SHRI SHIRDI SAIBABA in the wallet and he removed it and placed it on the yellow cloth which the priest had laid down for the pooja and the priest gave me a yellow flower to place in front of BABAji's Photo. Have you all noticed the miracle unfolding - BABA himself performed the SHRI SAI VRATA POOJA (where Babaji's idol is placed on yellow cloth and pooja is done with yellow flowers) which if you all remember i had promised earlier to perform the SHRI SAI 9 THURSDAY'S VRATA Pooja if Babaji helps me in finding my dream house, but sad to say i completely forgot about it after buying the apartment. And to top it the BABAJI'S photo which my husband placed for the pooja was where Babaji wore a yellow Kafni or shawl. I will never forget BABAJI'S presence on that day and tears still roll from my eyes even today to see how my beloved BABA came to my house. Before that i had never seen this yellow coloured photo which my husband had - my husband told me somebody in the office had given to him as a prasad from Shirdi. So definitely i want you all to believe 100% BABAji exists and true to say : I shall be active and vigorous even from the tomb.

The story does not end here about the SHRI SAI VRAT pooja more about BABAji's presence which i will tell in my next posting. Just keep your unwavering faith in our Dear SAI he will surely come to your rescue.

  1. Dear Hetalji, please post this experience of mine under 'Anonymous devotee' about my beloved guide and god Sri Saibaba. Thanks for hosting this site and letting devotees share their personal experiences. Faith in Him increases after reading each story.

    This Saint unflinchingly protects his devotees and rushes to their aid in times of their distress just like a mother rushes to her crying child.

    Towards the end of last year, my contract at work was coming to an end after more than 5 years of service. Despite my total dedication to work and positive contributions towards the success of a major project there, which was uniformly acknowledged and praised by all, I did not have any guarantee that my contract will not expire. This was a very frustrating situation for me and I felt helpless by the turn of events.

    I applied for new postions internally but nothing was panning out. Out of sheer desperation I took to reading to Sai Charithra to calm my anxiety. On one side, my mind emerged stronger, braver and more equanimous and I felt I could handle any situation. But on the other hand, I did really want my present job to continue. I did not like the idea of working any where else but here.

    This suspense extended into the new year when my contract was extended by just a month to take time to find a possible permanent postion. There were seemingly several obstacles to this simple goal. But Sri Saibaba provided a staunch supporter for me who literally took it upon himself to find me a permanent position here and he was in a position to do so.

    After much suspense and delay, a day prior to the expiry of the one-month contract, I finally obtained the paperwork for a permanent position. Without delving into the details of the obstacles or the manner in which they were overcame, all I want to share here is that this was nothing but a miracle, in my case. A miracle that would not have been possible unless some supreme soul who had the will and compassion, listened to and answered my prayers. It was almost as if Sri Sai Baba came to me in his blessed form and said "I am aware of your despair. I listen to your prayers. Have faith in Me. Be patient. Why fear when I am here?"

    I had promised Sri Saibaba during my times of anxiety to do Annadana in Shridi when the time comes. I am documenting it here so I may never forget my promise with the passage of time. I have never been to Shirdi. I pray to Sri Sainath to bless me again and make this trip and the fulfillment of my prayer to Him possible.

  5. @Anonymous ji,

    Sai Ramji,

    As per my view and method of observing the vrat, salt is not preferred. So please do not count that Thursday.

    Please "DO NOT" think that Sai Babaji will not accept your vrat and punish you because it is not done as per the method prescribed. Sai Baba is not happy to see us suffering with hunger, but He Himself is hungry for our love, faith and devotion. So please observe this vrat with the above virtues and not necessarily with prescribed method. Follow the link for more details of Sai Vrat http://www.shirdisaibabastories.org/2009/07/nine-thursdays-sai-baba-vrat-faqs.html

    Yes from fourth day of menses itself you can do the vrat.

    Jai Sai Ramji

  11. I have many friends who are baba devotees and each time they sing praises of him, i used to wonder when will i be able to do so? I was pulled to baba by a miraculous twist of events, not very long ago. Now, Baba is like my father. My love for him only grows each day and even as i type this, i have tears in my eyes for i know Baba helped me when i needed him the most.
    Recently i lost my job, had immense financial problems and was totally lost at life. I cried in front of him, i prayed hard and when i walked out of his mandir I felt peace at heart. It was like he took away all my burden and indirectly told me that he will take care of everything. Just 1 day before my last day at work, I got an offer. And, a week later another offer. I was speechless and couldnt thank him enough.
    Even yesterday, i was emotionally down and i asked him to stop my tears and give me strength to move on. In the form of my friend, i received a msg asking me to stay strong, be calm and have faith. I felt at peace thereafter.
    Thats Baba. I have never felt more closer to him than i am now. I speak to him everyday, in the morning, while driving, while working, anywhere and anytime. I am truly blessed to know Baba. I know, my faith in Baba will never diminish. Whatever you wish for, have complete faith and patience. He will listen to you. He will lift you up.
    Sairam.

  15. Hetal Ji,

    Thank you for posting experiences.

    I want to share my experiences.

    The Doctors told me I had Bronchitis some years back.

    I did not worry much about then.

    Recently, I had chest X-ray for coughing phelgm and chest pain.

    They reported that it was bronchital process.

    I was so worried as I also have reflux and regurgitation.


    I prayed to baba.After 10-15 days, I went to chest x-ray again.


    I was so worried and pray to baba with devotion to completely cure this.


    The report this time was clear. I was filled with emotions and am very

    greatful to Baba.

    I also had many other beautiful experiences..


    Baba has saved me. Thank you Baba.




    I will always love you.

  19. I recently come to know about Sai Vrat via leading newspaper. I have started to do vrat as mentioned, its 5 weeks now. My sufferings for job search and Visa in UK is countless. Moreover my mother worrying about my situation and as a daughter I am not able to give her any good news. Even after 3 interviews, I have been given 'Over qualified' as a major feedback. Praying and having a faith in Sai is the only convince and belief I could have in mind now. Lost my hard worked money, not able to take any decision to back to India. At times, I feel to go out of this life. Is this the world give to a girl with ambitions and career passion?? Frustrated and this is the last chance I am giving to myself. Just pay and vrat for Sai Baba and and to leave all my worries on his feet.
    I wish to post a happy news here soon. Lets see Baba's grace on me.

  21. SHIRDI SAIBABA - 3WEEKS FASTING.

    God is Almighty. Let Shirdi Sai give all wellness in everyone's life. Apart from 9weeks Baba vrat there is also a 3weeks Vrat which gives immense benefit as soon as we start doing vrat.

    Here it goes:
    The important thing in the Vrat is we should not consume sweet in any form(sugar,jaggery,Honey, snacks etc whatever which contains sweet). Fruits are permitted.

    Step by step rules:

    1. We can start the Vrat on a Thursday morning. After taking bath, in ur pooja room place a baba photo(if you have already have a baba statue or photo then its fine),offer flowers to him. Then in a small container you can fill sugar, place it in front of the photo. Now pray to Shirdi sai your wish.

    2. The vrat should be done for entire 3 weeks with no exemption (for example if you start on 26th Feb’15, the fasting it should end by 18th Mar’15)

    3. On the 3rd week Wednesday(preferably evening), you can go to the near by sai temple and offer Sweets to Shirdi sai.

    4. The Vrat will be completed on the next day Paal Neivedyam to Baba in your home with the sugar that we put during the first week.

    I personally done this vrat and got immense blessings of baba. I would come to know about this through some Tamil Aanmiga book.

    May Shirdi sai bless us all with all health n wealth.

  27. Hello Hetal ji,

    Jai Sai Ram!!

    I am doing the "11-Guruwar-Sai-Vrat"
    I am a office going girl and before leaving for my office I complete my Sai puja on every Thursday with complete rituals and procedures given in the book and then after returning back from office I go to temple as well.

    According to my sankalp, today is my 8th Thursday fast and I came across a major doubtful problem i.e Today morning after taking head-bath, I sat on the puja following all the procedures reading book and in the mid of puja I realized my menstruation period started. Now I fell into very unfavourable "dharm-sankat" and I was not supposed to leave the puja in the mid-half. So I had to continue and finish the puja till last...but didn't go to temple in the evening today.
    Now I'm very much tensed and literally in tears that even in my impure body condition I touched the Baba's idol and all the puja material including book. This has never happened with me before.
    But the book which I read for puja has written that Baba's vrat can even be kept in "sutak" and "paatak"(menses). Is that considerable??
    Should I count my this Thursday as Baba's vrat??

    Please reply and suggest the best!
    Regards
    -Shalini

  30. Om Sai Ram...

    I was browsing through few sites and found sai 9 weeks vrath, which i immediately told my spouse on performing the same in our house.

    While today (24th Mar 2016) - 4th week of puja, i was bit late and my spouse started the pooja, i settled in between before the Vrath Story time. And soon the stories were chanted and remaining things were done.

    Now as we both took the Akshanthulu (rice coated with turmeric powder) i could see Baba's idol was in a position that baba's face is towards my spouse. I thought okay i did not touch the idol and assumed okay she might have put it in that way. After we both placed Akshanthulu on our head, she moved away and i closed my eyes and informing baba (though i did not do that work without informing him) i again narrated the whole job i have done and to my surprise - when i open the eyes - Baba is looking at me... i.e. idol position is shifted towards me... to go out with the goosebumps, i said to my wife and she said - i dont remember in which position i have placed the idol.. I am definitely sure Baba's idol is placed and Baba turned himself seeing me while i was narrating him my job what i have done...

    this time - i am out of my mind and could make my mind saying - No matter what - when we are believing him - he will always be with us....

    Jai Sai Ram.
    Regards,
    Sridhar Alluri
