Hai friends i want to share my beautiful experience in Saibaba temple, mylapore, Chennai.
On a wednesday in May, 2010 I went to Saibaba temple to buy 'saibaba 9 thursday vrath' books, as that thursday i should complete my vrath and distribute the books. In that temple we can go directly near the Baba's Moorthy(idol) and touch his feet, offer him garland ect. I and my Mom were standing in the line waiting for Baba's close darshan. Then one devotee offered garland and touched Baba's feet with her forehead and praying, suddenly a big tulasi garland from the babas murthu(idol) fell on her head. It looked like baba accepted her devotion and gifted her with that garland as a sign of His blessing. Suddenly she felt afraid that some thing fell on her head and later when she saw the garland the devotee felt very happy and took that garland as a sign of Baba's blessings on her.
Here comes to my experience, i prayed and asked Baba to please give me also something like that as a sign of his blessings on me. My turn came and i went near the murthy (idol), offered him flowers, touched his feet with my forehead and waited for 2 seconds that baba will bless me also like that. But for my disappointment I did not get any sign of his blessings in any form. As the crowd is very big i cannot stay there more than 2 or 3 seconds, so got up with disappointment and with a sad face I went near baba's padukas which will be on some height behind the babas moorthy (idol). I prayed to the padukas and stood beside the padukas waiting for my mom to come. Due to big crowd the security will be sending out the devotees fast as so many devotees are waiting for darshan. They wont allow anyone to stand for sometime near the padukas because next to that padukas only the exit door is there, i was standing there and waiting for my mom with a fear that the security may scold me! and with a sad face that baba did not blessed me.
In my mind i was telling "baba you did not bless me, yuu didn't give me any thing, i am almost near the exit door within some seconds i will be going out, if you want to give any thing you should give now only, even it is a small flower i will feel very happy and take it as a sign of your blessings".
Then my mom came near padukas and suddenly the priest threw a big rose garland which he just removed from baba's moorthy (idol). That garland fell on the padukas while my mother is praying, first my mother was afraid that something had fell down suddenly. The security who always shouts came near me and told me "take that garland, its for you only Baba gave, take it", he told that in tamil 5 or 6 times but i did not understand because i dont know tamil. I felt afraid that he might scold me and thought of going out from there, but he in a peaceful manner explained me to take that garland, finally i understood what he is telling. I was really surprised and felt very very happy that Baba blessed me also and that garland is the sign of his blessing. Thanked baba for listening to my prayers and giving his blessings.
Generally the priest will throw the flowers and garlands another side and the security will be very busy sending out the devotees they will not talk that peacefully because of big crowd. But why did the deity threw the garland another side and what is the need to that security person to come near me and explain me even i didnt understand what he is telling. Its Baba who did all this.
I took that rose garland and kept that in pooja room in my house. Next day I completed my vrath with utmost happiness and satisfaction.
Baba cares even small feelings and even very small emotions of devotees and make his children satisfied.
May BABA bless everyone with happiness...
