Brother's DeathSai Sister Usha ji from India says: I belong to a staunch family believing Sai as our BABA. Sai didn’t save my brother. My 30 year old brother died on 31 Dec 2010. We all struggled to come up in life after my father left us at a young age. He became the man in the house and protected my mom and us from 12 yrs of age. I do not know why Baba gave us this cruel treatment. We lost him forever, he was a brilliant guy, and engineer but he didn’t see any happiness professionally or personally. He never got what he wanted. Why did Baba not help us, we believed Him so staunchly. Even the night, he went to the hospital, he showered, prayed and applied UDI only to return dead. Why didn’t Sai save my brother? We are not sure what mistake we did that Sai is seeing our family to suffer this misery. Baba, please have mercy, reham nazar karo Sai. Please take care of my family.
Sai's MiracleSai Sister Lalitha ji from USA says: Dear friends, I don’t know how to express my gratitude to our beloved God SAIBABA. I would like to share one of the miracles which I experienced in my life.
Today I went for a road test for driving license. I was so tensed up and not confident before the test. Any how I should pass the test as I was supposed to leave for another city. If I had missed it, I would have to take written test again in other city. There was a compulsion from my husband too. I prayed Baba to help me on this. In fact I didn’t do well in the test. As I was so nervous, I couldn’t park and reverse the car properly. The examiner was not happy with the way I was reversing and parking the car. I knew that she would fail me. At the end of the test, she did let me know where I did wrong. To my surprise, she said finally, "You are passed, go and get your license". It was incredible and so shocked. I didn’t stop thanking Baba for helping me to pass the test, which I needed badly. I promised Baba that if I pass the test, I would post my experience in a blog. Koti pranamam to Baba.
I love HIM a lot. Thank you so much Baba.
With love, Lalitha.
My Experiences With Sai Baba: Part - 1Sai Sister Phani ji from USA says: PLEASE DONOT DISCLOSE MY EMAIL ID. I want to share my experiences as a Sai devotee with all of you.
There are lots of interesting experiences with Baba in my life to say and this post will become so huge if I say all at once so I will be posting them in different parts.
We used to have Sai Baba’s photo in our temple. I didn't know who He is and I never asked my parents about Him, neither did they tell me about Him. Our family usually used to pray to all other gods, but not particularly to Baba. So I didn't know much about Sai Baba till my 6th grade and after that our family moved to another house, which is closer to Baba’s temple. Our house owner (lady) used to go to the temple every Thursday and she invited us to come along with her. We used to go with her along with my mom and I was not that interested in all the bhajans and aartis at that time and even I don't know the exact reason why I am going there without knowing anything about Baba. One year passed and I am into 8th grade and that’s the age we all become adolescents and I got diverted from my studies. I was not going to school properly, teachers complaining about me, not listening to parents and started doing all other nonsense stuff with friends and failing in exams and even stopped going to Baba’s temple along with my family every Thursday.
One day I got fever and I stayed at home and my mom and neighboring aunty thought of going to the temple. They took me along with them and the 12:00 PM (afternoon) aarti started. I was sick, so I was leaning to the side wall and singing aarti along with other devotees, but my mind was somewhere else. After 5/10 minutes, I suddenly started feeling very sick and I was unable to stand there and my body was sweating. I couldn't even see Baba's idol straight forward and I desperately wanted to sit or lay down somewhere, so I came out of the main room of the temple and fell on a stone bench in the compound. My mom came running to me in the middle of aarti and I told her that I was feeling so terribly sick and can't even stand inside there. She said we must not go in the middle and let us finish the aarti and then get some UDI and prasad and go home soon. I was sleeping out there and after aarti got over mom took me inside to the priest and he gave me UDI and prasad and blessed me and we went home.
I slept and got up in the evening and I was almost fine by then and mom came to me and said that I became so bad, doing all sorts of nonsense stuff and diverting from my studies and not respecting elders. So that's the reason, why I couldn't with stand the power of Baba in the temple and came out of the prayer room that afternoon. When I recalled what happened that afternoon in the temple, I can clearly say some kind of power pushed me back. From then, I started diverting my attention towards Baba and developed some respect, devotion and love on Baba. I started going to temple regularly and also to school, improved in studies and I finished my 8th grade successfully, which my parents thought that I couldn't make it and then our family moved to Vijayawada and luckily our house is closer to a big Baba’s temple in that city. So we used to go there regularly. Since its walk able distance and my devotion towards Him became stronger and I regularly started doing 108 pradakshins and also improved a lot in my studies.
Now I am going to conclude this part - 1 and what I feel about the above experience is that Baba suppressed all the bad qualities in me at the aarti time in the temple by sending His power on me and gradually diverted my attention on Him and made me His devotee.
