This is an experience which will confirm faith of devotees and for new ones here is a start.

Anonymous Devotee from USA says: Dear Hetal, Thank you for creating this blog. It gives immense pleasure to read devotees experiences here. Here, I am writing my experience with Shirdi Sai Baba.

I came across Shirdi Sai Baba while casually browsing on the internet. I read devotees experiences and got to know about Shri Sai Satcharitra. I started reading it just like a story book without giving much thought to it. But I was somehow attracted to Sai. I watched Sai movies and serial on internet. I felt like visiting Shirdi Sai temple here in USA. But unfortunately there are no Sai temples here nearby where we live. I had few small experiences on Thursdays. I was delighted and thought that Sai is real God and has accepted me. So I planned to visit Sai temple with my husband. We drove more than two hours, but unfortunately the temple was closed. I had read that Baba will call you only, if He wants to. So I thought that Baba did not want me to visit Him. Then, we left but to my surprise He made us visit Shri Nath ji temple on our way unexpectedly.


My parents and my brother are facing problems. To tell the truth, there was never much peace in my family. My brother does not love his wife and he has many other problems too which I cannot disclose here. So his marriage was bad. I asked my mom to pray to Sai and have faith in Him. Only He could look after my brother and wife. Accordingly she started visiting Sai temple on Thursdays. But I did not find any instant improvements there.

Anyways, few days passed and I still was praying to Sai. I live in USA and it makes me feel guilty that I am not able to look after my parents and my brother and his wife. So I requested Sai to look after them. I said that it is Your responsibility to take care of them. Then during a weekend my husband wished to visit Pittsburg Shri Venkateshwara temple. There is a Sai temple too. We visited both the temples. But somehow I did not have a great feeling in Sai temple, because there was a picture of some other person next to Baba's Statue. I don’t want to disclose that person’s name, whose picture was worshiped there as others who believe in him would be offended. But I just don’t believe in that person, because I have seen the proof too that he is a fraud. But I really don’t want to comment. I started having doubts about our Sai after that. I thought how He can be a God, since He was only a human being and may be he was mad too, because He had mood swings too and had erratic behavior according to few books that I went through. My apologies for that. Moreover in His temple here, they are publicizing about other fraud person. People who say have so called "experiences" just have co incidents or they are just imaginations of their mind. There is another reason to my disbelief because my husband and in laws don’t believe in Him too.

I had a neutral stand towards Him from then on and almost forgot about Him. I started thinking maybe there is no God at all in this world. I was thinking whom should I go to when I need someone because there is no so called "God". And in this world there are so many fraud people who just cheat people in the name of spirituality for billions of rupees.

Then next Thursday morning, I had a dream. I entered in a temple with someone (a friend of mine who I don’t remember). There was a Maharashtrian petite woman wearing a green sari sitting in front of Gods Statue. As soon as she saw us, she welcomed us smilingly. She said that she was waiting for us. Meanwhile, I was wondering where to keep my handbag, before taking Darshan wondering if someone would steal it if we keep it at the corner. To my disbelief that beautiful lady read my thoughts and said that you can keep that bag anywhere in this temple and no one will even touch it. So I was relieved and left my handbag there and went to have Darshan of God. But it turned out to be Shirdi Sai Baba's Statue. She performed Arti and also gave us some sweet Prasad to eat. Then I realized that I should give ten coins as Dakshina and so walked back to get coins from my handbag. But I was disheartened that I found only three coins and not ten in my purse. Then I thought I shall give Dakshina whatever I have and went back near Baba’s Statue. That lady had gone and there was no Baba Statue. Instead there was somewhat an old man in orange robe. I thought He was Shirdi Sai Baba. His face was not clear and He was not wearing head scarf. But He had calm face. He asked me "Who will you believe in if you don’t believe in me. You do not have anyone to trust. So have trust in me or else you may go mad thinking". Then I gave Him those three coins. But He took only two coins and gave me one back. Then my brother came from somewhere and was yelling at me that it was getting late and we had to go back home. My mom and my sister in law too came and started hurrying me up. I tried to explain them that Baba had just come in person and told them whatever He said. They did not believe in me and said it is not possible to see Baba and it was just my imagination. No one believed that there is Baba. So I went back with them. I woke up and that was the end of my dream.

The next day, I just thought it was a dream and my imagination and did not give much thought to it. A week passed and the next Thursday, I casually called up my parents and I received the news that brother and his wife had left to Shirdi with his friend who was newly married. I was surprised on hearing this as it is very difficult to convince my brother to visit any temple. Moreover I had never mentioned anything about Shirdi Sai to him and neither my mom did. Then I started to realize that may be this is Sai Leela. He has accepted to look after my family in my absence. His dream made sense now. He wanted to convince that even if people around me don’t believe in Him, I should trust Him completely. And the two coins that He took meant 'Shraddha' and 'Saburi'. From then on, I have started trusting Sai. I hope to perform His Vrat, if He permits me to. Om Sai Ram.

This is too long email and I apologize for that. I would be glad if this is posted on your site and I would appreciate any comment on my experience. Also if someone can interpret my dream and explain to me would be appreciated.

Thank you,
Jai Sai Ram

  2. Om SaiRam,

    Dear Mam, When I was reading your experience, I just looked towards Baba's picture in my room and started crying. How he pulled his devotees towards him. Very nice experience and thank you very much for sharing with all of us. I am also living abroad with my husband and back in home country I am also worried for parents and my brother as since my childhood there is no peace in our family. But when our father Sainath had pulled all of us towards him, the situation improved gradually. Although I am still worried but I left in hands of Sairam and asked him to look after peace in my family. Now we are looking good girl for my brother but I left this responsibility in hands of our Deva.

    Thank you sister for sharing your wonderful experience.

    Om Sairam

  4. Dear Sai sister.

    It is a beautiful experience. Sai is incharge.. Not to worry.

    Moreover, your words, '"Who will you believe in if you don’t believe in me. You do not have anyone to trust. So have trust in me or else you may go mad thinking". are a message for me.. particularly the kind of mental turmoil I went through yesterday.

    Sai protects and blesses. Leave it to him. Be rest assured. Sai.Sai.Sai.

  7. Dear Anonymous ji,
    I read your experience..its very heart touching..baba always pull you close to him when he wants to..his leela is very different..As per you visit sai temple You also saw Satya Sai..If you do not want to believe in him you don`t have to..he is not forcing you so the shirdi sai..their ways of giving messege to society are same..they give you full freedom to trust in yourself, your guru and your god..Probably he is not sai but he is not fraud!! he did many good things to society, he helped many poor people..HE was very good soul..Once you are under Sai Ma you will also see sai everywhere in everyone..so keep Shraddha and Saburi..HE will help to remove all your obstacle n will give you clear path of life n soul..sai ram

  8. Dear anonymous, I am a shirdi sai bhakt and don't believe in any one else...but this doesn't permit me to disrespect others...when a person has such a mass following as satya sai baba had, he is liable to be scrutinized by each and everyone in his/her own way....even our shirdi sai baba was criticized by some people during his lifetime...but the fortunate ones accepted HIM as GOD....I can only advise you to keep your faith strong no matter what others tell you...when you will surrender at Sai's lotus feet, you will be freed from worries, tensions, daily grind and once again world will become a beautiful place to live in...Its not that everyday that Sai manifests himself to people but you are blessed that Sai came in your dream and showed you his presence.....stay blessed....

  9. Dear madam,
    Wonderful experience! Sai blessed you in your dream and as you were worried about your family and brother , see, all they were with you in your dream. It means all they blessed by our Lord Sai and also Sai gave you indication to keep faith on Him and He will solve all the issues. as you mentioned in your ecxperience that your brother not happy with his wife but I think its Sai's Miracle that your brother planned to go Shirdi with his wife after you had that dream.

    Sai is great Keep Shradha & Saburi .

    Om sai Ram

  11. Nice experience. I believe in shirdi baba. He is my all in all. I also believe that he lives in every single thing. So, i believe that if I disrespect anyone or anything it is like disrespecting my shirdi baba. so i feel that we have to hold our respects for every person, animal, living and even non living beings. thats the only way to baba. He is all and all is Him.

  19. Om Sai Ram,

    I am a Sai Devotee for long time. For me, both Sathya Sai Baba and Shiridi Sai Baba are same. I believe both are one soul and two different bodies. I had both Baba's in my dream. Without them I am nothing. If you have full faith, I don't think you shoud worry about critiques. Swami, please bless all of your devotees.

    Om Sai Ram.

If your heart says someone is not right and may be is a manipulator of our minds, just forget about that person. But trust in Sai. Have faith. " WHo will you believe in if you dont believ in me/ You will go mad thinking" this is what he said to me. So just believe in sai.@Anonymous

  29. Amazing.... She saw Baba in Orange and no hair covering. Is it not like seeing Shiridi Baba and Sathya sai baba as one!!

    Shridi Baba or for that matter any God realised person would never talk of fake/fraud people - for they know all are one. Good or bad is all in mind.

    When Krishna asked Dhuryodhana to find one 'good' guy he could not find one on this earth. When Dharamaraj was asked to find one 'bad' guy on earth he could not find one either. It is all in our Dhristi.

  30. Please add to thew last post.

    I also believe Baba is also correcting our Dhristi with the dream. He is the best teacher ever!!

  31. That is not Baba's original photo. That is Abdulbaba Photo. You Go Shiridi and see abdulbaba photo at DARGA, opposite of Chavadi in shiridi.

  32. :) wonderfl experience. saima may shower blessings to all of us.... one humble request... dont blame or say bad about sathya sai baba as he too has large no. of devotees and he has done many good deeds. It is human tendency that they wont accept living gods and whenever they pass away they wil recognize and accept. So if u dont belief it is up to u but a sai devotee should not say bad about other gurus .... that is our saima taught us. sairam......

  34. Thank you for all the experiences and comments. We are going through a very very difficult time in our lives. My son has been accused of things he did not do. For the past three months Shiridi Baba has left me with so many clues that he is with me but I have not seen any results or got any relief from the situation. My Son has been warned that he will expelled from school. I am hoping that Baba will answer my prayers soon. I will write about my experience soon.... it is quite amassing. Please pray for my son. Sai Ram
