Many times we read devotees sharing and posting experiences of getting jobs by asking to Lord Sai Baba. In this Kaliyug it is certain that one needs to rely on monetary medium to survive and live in this society. By gifting us monetary and material things, Lord Sai devotees are awarded spiritual blessings, which i guess is the most important for living this difficult and long life.
Anonymous Devotee from India says: Dear Hetal Ji, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for publishing my experience. Please forgive me to write such a long one. Please do not disclose my name and mail id. Shree Sai brought me in His Darbaar (temple) few years back and since then there has been no looking back. Few days back, I was watching a movie "Shirdi ke Sai Baba" (1977). There is a dialogue in that: "Jo baba ki taraf ek kadam badhata hai, baba uski taraf dus kadam badhate hain". So true these words are. With this, I put my experience here.
I pray to Babaji to write this experience and bless all His devotees with His eternal love. I do not know from where to start. From last six months, nothing seemed to be going well as I was not working. And lastly by Babaji’s grace, I have landed in my dream job which I just cannot imagine. I still can’t believe this, but it’s true and this could happen only by His grace on His devotees.
I completed my post graduation this year and was happy that my studies got over and I got placed in a good company. Even after graduating from the college, we didn’t get the call letters from this company. Rest all my batch mates got their joining date even before our college finished. I didn’t worry at all as we got this job through campus. So we were sure to be called for joining. As time passed by, we didn’t get any intimation from this company.
Before I write further I would like to mention a small incident which happened with me, when I was in college itself. By Babaji’s grace, I got a chance to visit Shirdi with my college friends and had nice Darshan. When I returned back to hostel, my best friend just casually asked me about what I prayed and wished from Babaji. I told him that if we tell our wishes to anyone it won’t come true. After much deliberation, I agreed to him and told him about my wish. I told him that I want to stay with my parents, after I finish my college and I would like to work at the same place. I prayed to Babaji for the same. He didn’t give any reaction and we forgot this incident there itself.
After I passed out from college, I was waiting for my joining and used to pray that I should be getting my posting in Mumbai itself, as I stay here with my parents. Situation got more tensed, when all our batch mates were getting their joining. And we still didn’t have any clue as to when we will get intimated.
Suddenly in May, I got a call from HR of my company and he asked me to join somewhere in Orissa. I was really shocked to hear this. I never expected this. I left everything on Babaji. Throughout the day, I was crying even my family was upset to hear this. Anyways, I left everything to Babaji. In the evening, I went to Sai Dham, which is nearby my place of residence. I attended Dhoop Aarti and throughout this I had tears rolling down from my swollen eye. During those days, I caught an eye infection and there was a continuous pus formation on the eye lid, it used to bleed sometimes. I thought if Babaji wants me to go far away from my family I will go and accept this as His blessings. After the Aarti, I distributed some food items and came back home. As soon as I reached home, I opened my mail box and to my surprise there was mail from my college senior asking me for my resume as they have some openings. In next few days, I attended the interview, but somehow things didn’t turn out in my favor. In the mean time, the position in Orissa was filled up by some other candidate and so I had to wait again for my turn.
In the mean time, I started applying for jobs as I was not getting my joining. For one interview, I was called to Delhi. I was staying at my Aunt’s place and before my interview I had 2-3 days to stay in Delhi itself. Here in Mumbai, we have a small Sai Baba temple just outside our society, and we visit this temple every day. As I was staying at my Aunts place, I didn’t get any chance to visit Sai temple to worship our dearest Babaji. I was feeling restless. Another best friend of mine was also staying in Delhi and since she was working in Noida, so we decided to meet in Noida itself after her working hours. Now see the miracle and Babaji’s Leela. My friend’s office is at almost equal distance from Noida City Centre and Anand Vihar. After much discussion, we decided to meet at Noida City Centre Metro station. I reached the destination about one hour before her office gets over. But Babaji had different plans for me. Since I was meeting my friend after a long time, so I thought of buying some chocolates for her. And moreover, we have some memories of chocolates we had shared during our college time. People from Noida, NCR must know that there are no shops outside the Noida City Centre metro station. After enquiring from the people, I got to know that there is a market in Sector 50. I asked a rickshaw puller to take me to Sector 50. As soon as I took the rickshaw just a thought came to my mind of visiting Sai Temple if I could find a one nearby. I said to myself “how is it possible to visit Sai Baba temple when I am miles away from my home”. Next moment, I saw a Sai Babaji’s picture on the median of the road. I was so happy that Babaji fulfills our desires every time and everywhere. But what I see as my rickshaw gets closer to that picture, it’s written that there is a Sai Tempe in Sector 40 which is just near from that place. I immediately asked my rickshaw puller to take me to Sai Baba temple in Sector 40 instead of Sector 50 market. I purchased a garland outside the temple and I was hesitant to buy a shawl for Babaji as I have never offered anything like this to Baba. And I was also not sure of the size, since I was visiting this temple for the first time. But finally, I purchased a yellow shawl and a garland for Babaji. As soon as I entered the temple, My Lord what a beautiful sight it was. I just cannot pen down here. As if Babaji is welcoming His devotees with a beautiful smile and saying to me “See, I pull my devotees from miles away”. True very true this is. I just couldn’t utter even a single word and the priest in the temple understood my feelings and He himself took the shawl from me and offered it to Babaji. I was thinking that he will return that shawl to me to be kept in our home temple. But to my surprise the priest made the Babaji idol to wear that shawl. My joy knew no bounds to see this. I just couldn’t keep my eyes away from our Babaji. I kept looking at Babaji’s smile with tears rolling down.
After attending my interview in Delhi, I was returning back to Mumbai. It was Guru Poornima that day and I was thinking what if I get my interview result on Guru Poornima itself. That will be the perfect gift for me. Throughout the day, I kept waiting for a call from this company. But nothing happened. I reached Mumbai in the evening and at around 9:30 PM, I got a call from my same friend who had asked me about my wish when I visited Shirdi earlier this year. I just couldn’t believe my ears that there was a sudden opening in his company which is in Mumbai itself and he wants me to apply for the same. Somehow I got the intuition that Babaji is giving me this as a Guru Poornima gift to me. I applied for the same and attended the interview. After few days, I decided to go Shirdi again and just when I started from my home, I got a call from this second company that I am thru with the process and have been called me for the documentation process. My Shirdi trip became so special to me this time.
Thank you Babaji for blessing us with Your love and I pray to Babaji to shower His blessings like this always and always..!!
Jai Sai Ram
