Sharing My First ExperienceAnonymous Devotee from USA says: Please do not disclose my name and e-mail address, if you wish to publish this post. Keep me as anonymous. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity. Also, I promised Baba that I will post my experiences here. But I am not in return for a desire. It is out of my own interest.
June 10, 2011 11:11 AM, Central Time, USA, the time I rediscovered myself with Baba’s help. I was lost completely before that. I was frustrated, depressed and did not know what I was doing. I made so many mistakes prior to this time, personally and also regarding Baba. But then I prayed to Baba and asked Him to accept my apologies. The best way to correct your mistake is not do it again. I told the same to Baba that I should not repeat the blunders I did and let me make only few mistakes. Because, it is impossible for a human being not to make any mistakes in a lifetime. I asked Him to guide me in the path of faith and patience, shared all my problems with Him and asked Him to show me some solution. The amount of mental peace you get, when you actually talk to Him in front of His photo is immense and unexplainable. I promised Baba that whatever miracles or Leelas, I experience, I would post on this blog. Today I started reading Sai Satcharitra, the book written by Shri Hemadpant Dabholkar, in Marathi and translated later by Shri N. V Gunaji into English. I attained so much peace after reading Chapter I.
Sai Evening AartiSai Sister Supriya ji from India says: Jai Sai Ram, I am a very small and humble devotee of Baba and always trying to please Him. I wish Baba blesses me enough that I can do His seva the way you are doing Hetal ji. You are truly a blessed soul. Thank you for this lovely gift you have given us. It really gives a lot of strength to go on during weak times. Thanks a ton!
I always wanted to attend Baba's Aarti standing right in front of Baba's Samadhi. Only He could do this for me and He did. I hope I am able to do justice to write down Baba's Leela, the way I felt it. I have been planning to post this for long. Sorry for the delay Baba. I believe this to be Your wish that You want me to do it today. Sorry, but I would not have done justice to it. I had tried to cut short the length. Hetal ji, please do not share my email address. Thanks
My name is Supriya. 18th Jan 2011, the whole night I was sitting outside the main hall of Samadhi Mandir, waiting in the queue for Kakad Aarti. I was knitting a shawl for Baba. I and two other ladies were there with me. When we entered the main hall in the morning, we could only manage to reach the last position among the lot that was standing. People need to stand in the first hall and in the second and third hall. They make you sit during the time of Aarti. We were the last in the first hall. I have been to Shirdi many times and have attended the Kakad Aarti many times, but I have never managed to reach beyond the middle position in the first hall (among the people who are standing). Though I have gone and stood in the queue quite early. The front few rows are for VIP's and others, who have a pass etc. Thus I could only reach the middle rows in spite of my best efforts. While I was singing the Aarti and praying, I just genuinely felt inside, "How people, standing right in front of Baba, must be feeling?" I said to myself that tomorrow, I will sit in the queue even more early so that I may reach in front few rows.
Next day evening, I and one of my friends went to submit the shawl I was knitting, in PRO office. I wanted to request them to put the shawl on any piece of cloth, they will be adorning on Baba. It was just a crotchet shawl and not a complete dress, so it could not be worn alone, all by itself. Everyone said that the PRO office was closed now and we should go after 7 PM. I still really wanted to try. I went and surprisingly the guard let me and my friend in. It was 5:30 pm, in the evening on Wednesday. The PRO officer heard me and said that since the design was such (blank spaces in between), he was not sure if mandir people will allow and make Baba wear such a shawl at night. At night they offer only absolutely plain clothes. The shawl was plain creamish white, but since it was made with crotchet, it had spaces here and there. I guess in my hurry to complete the shawl, I chose such a design and made it with spaces. I am sorry about that, Baba. I hope I made you a little happy.
The person in the PRO office said that I should go and talk to the mandir in charge. He sent a guy with me, who took me and my friend inside the mandir complex. Luckily the third lady, who was with us in the Aarti the night before, saw us just as we were about to enter the mandir complex and joined us also.
All three of us were taken inside the Samadhi Madir, right in front of Baba's statue, by a VVIP gate. The mandir in-charge sits in the room next to Baba's Samadhi. We went inside to meet him, but he was not there. One of his men said, "He will come in a while, do you want to attend the Aarti?" It was time for evening Aarti of Baba. All three of us nodded, speechless as we were. He made us stand right in front of Baba's Samadhi, in the first row. We were dumb founded. All three of us were crying like fools. I had no words, all I thought was, I was thinking of standing in the queue the whole night to get the first place and here He was making other plans for me.
I can never thank You enough for this Baba. I only have one request; please do not test me, my patience. I do not want to fail in this exam that You are taking. I try to hold on every moment. Please forgive me for my bad Karmas and give me back what I have lost. I try to make You happy all the time. I hope sometime You accept my service and are happy with me. If it is not too much for You, please make things happen as I want them to be. I love you Baba and nothing is complete without You. Please come in our home in the form, I have always requested You. I leave my life in Your hands.
Please forgive me for any mistakes in this post and kindly publish it if you find it fit enough for the site. If not, please let me know. I shall eagerly wait to see this. Thanks & Jai Sai Ram!
Sai Blessing In My LifeSai Sister Santamaray .T. ji from Malaysia says: I am working as clerk with 2 children on 5 and 3. My life went upside down after I got married and until I came to know about our Saideva. Now I want to share my experience with Sai.
My daughter is five. I have sent her to pre-school. Now after this term school holidays, I have to pay her school fee of RM751-00 that is on 13-JUN-2011. I prayed to Baba to help me. I had no idea how to get the money. I am heavily in debt with the banks. In between this, my brother invited all the family members to spend the weekend in Melaka. I wanted to go so much, mostly to get away from my husband for few days. But the problem is again money. I again, on Wednesday 8/6/2011, begged Baba to show me a way. I told Him that I am surrendering all these money problems to Baba especially my daughter’s school fee. I told Baba that only 4 days are left for school to reopen and I can’t help being scared and worried. Then I heard a voice saying "Just be quiet, things will look better tomorrow". After that I went to sleep. The next day, Thursday (my 4th week of Thursday Vrat), I went to work and to my surprise and astonishment, I received 2 cheques of RM500-00 from one of our client. My boss asked him to use my name for the company as director’s fee. You can imagine my joy and astonishment. This is very much miracle of Sai, because the same client told us two months ago, he is going to remove my name, because I am blacklisted. Now I can pay my daughter's school fee and also go to Melaka. I am troubled with so many problems and heartaches due to my own fault and mistakes. Now I know, I am in saving hands. Nothing will go wrong with Sai around you. I am not a sinner, when Baba had accepted me.
Thank you for this opportunity to share the miracles of Sai in modern age. OM SAI RAM
