Mita ji says: Jai Sairam Hetalji, I have been a regular reader of your blogs and like the experiences that devotees share here. I am a software engineer from Bangalore. I was married for last 2 years and had a happy family. My husband was always caring and inlaws were like parents to me. Everything was smooth and peaceful in the family till last year when all went wrong. My husband was under a financial crisis and my inlaws started accusing me and abusing me for that.
I am from Bangalore and was well settled in my job for last 5 years and had a loving family. But off late there were many disturbances in both personal and professional life. We had a huge financial crisis and hence fights in the family. I used to pray to Saibaba everyday asking for his guidance and it was then that my husband got an assignment in a different country and we both decided to shift there for sometime.
Me and my husband shifted to the foreign country thinking that we can earn some extra money and would be able to clear our debts but life was even more difficult here. My husband salary was not enough to manage the expenses of 2 people. Even with so many years of working experience I was struggling to get a job here. We even sometimes did not eat our lunch or dinner without each other's knowledge.
When we came here I had not thought that it would be so difficult to find a job in a foreign country. I used to apply everywhere possible, try to contact as many people and find a right job for me but used to get an negative answer from all directions. I was loosing my confidence and soon became impatient.
On such an occasion my friend told me to pray to Saibaba and leave everything to him, by his grace all the arrangements will be done. That thought was enough to pacify my disturbed mind. Altough I used to worship Saibaba for many years and read Sai satcharita whenever I had time, I had never done the reading of Saisatcharita as a regular habit. This time I though that Saibaba has given me the time so that I can devotee my mind and soul in his prayers.
On Thursday 13th of May, I started reading Saicharita after my regular puja. I wanted to finish the reading in 1 week altough I was not sure if that would be possible because earlier also whenever I had thought of doing the saptah due to some problem or the other I was never able to complete the saptah. I bowed to Saibaba and prayed that "Baba help me finish the Saisatcharita saptah because without your blessings it would not be possible. Also forgive me if I do any mistakes, I surrender myself unto your feet".
I used to read Saisatcharitha in the morning, afternoon or evening whenever I was free and finally I was able to finish it in a 1 week's time. My mind had became calm when I was reading Saisatcharita, all the mental worries had reduced and I felt as a completely different person within me. It was on the commencing Thursday i.e 20th of May that I got a call from one of the companies that I had appeared for an interview long back. They had earlier rejected me for the position but now they wanted me to join them the next day onwards. This was a miracle for me. I could understand that it was only possible because of Saibaba grace. I was very emotional, and could not control my tears in front of Baba's photo.
Even today I try to read Saisatcharita on Thursday because I feel that by reading that I am closer to BABA as if he is in front of me to guide me.
Om Shri Sachidananda Sainath Maharaj ki JJai!!!
