Honest Prayers Yielded Good ResultsSai Sister Praveena ji from India says: My name is Chennupati Praveena Sri. I am ardent devotee of Sathguru Saibaba Thandri Narayana. I am polio affected when I was 8 months old and faced lot of hardships in life. In every juncture of my life Swamy Narayana helped me a lot. Hail to Sai Durga Maatha.
Hi to Sai Brothers and Sisters. I would like to share my real life experiences. When I was 8 months old, I got polio affected (left hand and right leg). All my operations were successful. Though, I am not completely cured. I was able to complete my higher studies, though I faced personal problem when I was doing Ph.D. With Sathguru’s grace, I have done jobs in various prestigious institutions. I am married to a nice person Chennupati Rambabu. My father Perini Syambabu taught me the values to adjust, be kind and adhere truly to the words of my husband. Though there were many problems relating to property. Sathguru Saibaba has kept our relationship intact and we were blessed with a baby boy Chennupati Ganesh Sri Sai Pavan. With the Grace of Sathguru Saibaba Thandri Narayana my affiliation with humble and pious persons like Dr. J.S Makani (orthopedic Surgeon), Dr. Rodrigues (laparoscopy), Vidya Guru Dr. VBNS Madduri (Professor and mentor), and Spiritual Guru Shri Raoji (Spiritual blessings and moral support) was made possible. Their right guidance and blessings have yielded divine results right from my childhood stage, educational stage, marital life and parental life, in spite of hardships. I pray to Sai Durga Maatha to bless their families at all times.
Some times in life, some stumbling blocks will be laid by evil doers (not to mention), but with self confidence, persistent human efforts coupled with Sai Durga Maatha’s blessings will provide you rock hard stamina and will power to surpass all these odds.
I always remember one quotation in my life taught by my father and Vidhya Guru: I don't measure a man's success by how high he climbs but how high he bounces when he hits bottom, but still stands firm for the good to happen in darkened lives.
Hail to Sai Durga Maatha

Experience With Sai BabaAnonymous Devotee says: Om Sai Ram Hetal ji, I would like to share my experience with Sai Baba with Sai devotees through your blog. I promised Sai Baba that I will share my experience with His devotees to give them hope and it might strengthen their devotion and patience. Please do not publish my name and email id.
I visited Shirdi two times in my life but then I was not a devotee of Sai Baba. Though I felt peace and some power in Darshan there, but I didn’t know anything about Sai Baba except that He is great saint.
My journey with Sai Baba started after my marriage in mid 2008. I joined my husband in Europe and started job search. One of my friends here was great devotee of Baba. She managed to arrange my interview with her company and I was very nervous whether I will get this job. Then my friend suggested me if I want this job then I should do Sai Satcharitra Parayana. From here I came to know about life of Sai Baba and Sai Satcharitra. My only motive was to get this job and I started reading this holy book. Though I didn't get that job, it developed some faith and some devotion for Sai Baba in me. After few months I received an interview invitation. Company was in outskirts (out of city). I was not able to get taxi and was running late. I cried and asked Sai Baba if He wants me to reach late and not attend this interview. He listened to me and suddenly I saw a taxi there and reached company. Again I didn't get that job too but I thanked Baba to help me.
After some time, my husband had some problems in his job and we were very paranoid for around 6 months. We didn't want to compromise in terms of salary and post. He got new job in another country. But we wanted to stay here only. I requested Sai Baba that I will accept whatever He has decided for us, but we want to stay in this country only. Suddenly, my husband got interview invitation from a company and things worked out in same country as we live that too with good package without any compromise. It was certainly Baba's blessings.
My mother lives in India. One day she told me that our servant who used to work in our house ran away with her jewelry and some cash. She had some sentiments associated with her some jewelry. I remembered Sai Vrat's Kokila story. In which a devotee got her jewelry box back. I told my mother that do not worry, have faith in Sai Baba and I was 100% sure that you will get your jewelry back. I prayed to Sai Baba that I don't care about other stuff, but please return her gold chain that has huge sentimental value for her. After few days she told me that she has got her gold chain in a cupboard like someone had put it there.
I have only one younger brother who was trying for MBA entrance for two years and astrologer told us he is having “Shani Ki Sadhe Sati” and his stars are not good this year. But again I had faith in Sai Baba and my mother started visiting Sai temple every Thursday and Baba listened to us. My brother got admission in MBA College this year with Baba's blessings.
I am so grateful to Sai Baba and thank Him for being with us always. Baba, please “Haemsha Apna Haath Hum Sab Par Banaye Rakhna” (please bless us always).
My Father Sai Baba's LeelaAnonymous Devotee from USA says: Om Shree Sai Ram, Dear Hetal ji, you are doing great work. You are spreading Baba’s Leelas all over the world. We are staying in USA. But we are lucky to read our SAIMAA Leelas. Yesterday I got wonderful experience by our SAI Thandri. So I want to share with all Sai Devotees. By this experience I felt BABA's presence. Baba is with us always. He is “Anthaayami” (Omnipotence).
Hetal ji if you like please post this experience in the blog and please don’t mention my name and my email id. Here is the experience.
Daily evening I do evening Aarthi to BABA. Yesterday evening I opened Sai Bhakti radio website and I was listening Sai Bhajans. After some time, while I was watching TV, I put pause to that Sai Bhakti radio. My husband came from office. We planned for outside dinner. So my husband asked me to come fast. I thought today I can't do evening Aarthi. I will do pooja (lit the lamp) and offer my prayer and go out. I went to rest room to get ready my laptop was in the hall. Still Sai Bhakti radio was in pause mode.
After I did get ready, I came to hall. That was evening 6.15 PM. When I came to hall, I was shocked by listen Sai Aarthi in Sai Bhakti radio. I don’t know how it played. Automatically it was playing Sai Aarthi. My husband asked how that song is coming. Even I was surprised by listening that Aarthi. Automatically it is playing.
How I can express my feelings. BABA showed me His presence and He is telling that He is here. How can you neglect my Aarthi, do Aarthi. Sorry BABA, I first neglect to do Aarthi. BABA, please always show your presence to us. We are always indebted to You Thandri. Our life is at your feet only.
Om Shree Sairam
