Anonymous Devotee from USA says: Hetal Ji, I really appreciate your efforts for collecting all Sai Baba devotees experience. Daily I am reading this blog. Shirdi Sai Baba’s saying “Why fear when I am here”. This sentence changed my entire life. There are thousands of miracles in my daily life with Baba’s grace. I want to share some of the experiences here with all devotees to strength their faith on Baba. Please don’t disclose my name and mail id. Please edit if the below experience if you feel necessary. I am devotee of Baba from my childhood, but I became very close to Baba’s feet while studying my B.Tech.
My first experience : Baba Saved my family from calamityWith many struggles, I was studying my B. Tech. and came to Bangalore to do my project in 2008. I and my father went to my relative’s house. Same day, my aunt took me to Baba temple near to her house. While entering in that temple, I saw Baba’s sayings “Why fear when I am here”. And “if you look to Me, I look to you”. I am not able to control myself. With full tears in my eyes, I went to Baba’s feet and had a nice Darshan. I got the project for 3 months and stayed in hostel with my friends. My hostel is very near to Baba temple, just 5 min walk. Daily I used to go to Baba’s temple and seeing Baba continuously 2-3 hours. I went to my native to give presentation on my project in my college. I still remember the date march 08 2008 Maha Shivaratri festival.
Suddenly my neighbor fully drunk and came to my house and quarreled and injured my dad seriously. My dad had land issues with that neighbor, even my dad tried so many discussions to solve that issue with him in presence of our relatives, but he never used to listen anyone. We got shocked and took my dad to hospital. I cried a lot in front of Baba and asked Him why this horrible situation happened to my family? I really wanted to throw all the Baba’s photos and idols from my house at that time. I came back to Bangalore to complete my project after one week. Daily I used to go to Baba’s temple and was crying in front of Baba and praying for my family to recover from those worst situations and give strength to me to complete my project and my final year Exams.
With Baba’s grace, my dad recovered within one month and I also completed my project and exams secured highest score in my batch. My family members really felt Baba’s miracle with my dad health became normal in short time. Thanks Baba.
My second experience: Baba’s Darshan and got job by Baba’s blessingsI completed B. Tech. in 2008, because of the recession I did not got joining letter from the companies, which I got selected in campus interviews. I was seriously trying for job in Bangalore. There were no openings because of recession. This time I used to stay in hostel, which was very far from the Baba’s temple I used to go. My life became very horrible with financial problems, relative’s insults and job trails. Every week I used to go to Baba’s temple and asking Him to show the way to overcome all these situations. I had attended one interview in MNC, but failed to clear all rounds. I found Sri Saileelamruthamu and Sri Guru Charitra by Sri Ekkirala Bharadwaja books in my hostel pooja room. My roommate asked me to do Parayana of these books. I started reading Sri Saileelamruthamu and Sri Guru Charitra books and attending interviews. Day by day situations became worst. I used to cry a lot in front of Baba’s photo. One Thursday, I cried a lot and slept without having dinner also same night. I woke up suddenly at midnight at 2:30 AM and saw BABA is standing in front of me. I am not able to see His face clearly. Full light or brightness was there. He was seeing me. After 5 minutes, no one was there at that place. I didn’t believe my own eyes. I was thinking that maybe I got a dream or really Baba came? Around 3:00 AM, I saw Baba with a cute smile on His face. This time I had seen Baba’s face very clearly. He was sitting next to me and giving His blessings to me by putting His hands on my head. I can’t express that feeling. I felt so happy and thinking that really Baba gave Darshan to me or it was my dream? But I am very sure this was not a dream. I saw Him and that night I didn’t sleep.
Next day, while I was reading Baba’s book, I got sentence like “I really came and gave blessings. Don’t doubt or don’t ask other devotees to confirm this experience”. After one week on Wednesday, I got the interview call from same MNC, which I had attended interview and failed 3 months back. This time with full faith on Baba, without preparing, I had attended interview. Very next day (Thursday), I got a call from company. I got selected. My joining date, they mentioned next week Thursday. I felt very happy after listening my mother words on phone, “Yesterday one old man came to our house and asked Bhiksha and Dakshina. I offered and He told me don’t worry all worries will vanish. Your daughter is at Baba’s feet”. With Baba’s grace, I had joined and got my first salary also on Thursday.

My Third experience: Shirdi TripAfter I got job, I want to go to Shirdi. With Baba’s blessings, my first Shirdi trip happened on January 26th 2009 with my friend. I went to Shirdi and got very nice Darshan of my BABA. While going to dinner to Shri Sai Prasadalaya in Shirdi, I noticed one old man looking at me with sweet smile. My friend called me to come fast. In next minute, no one was there around me. I felt Sai only came to me. From then onwards, every year Baba is inviting me and my family to Shirdi. Before this, my family used to worship only Lord Tirupati Venkateshwara. Now my parents and sister everyone became ardent devotees of Shirdi SAIBABA. In our day to day life, my family members are experiencing Baba’s presence in every situation. Now I and my family are very happy and leading a peaceful life at the feet of Shirdi Sainath with Parayana’s of Saileelamruthamu and Sri Guru Charitra.
Thanks to Baba for His grace and blessings to narrate my experiences. Thanks to Hetal Ji for giving this wonderful opportunity to me. I hope these experiences will definitely help to all Sai devotees to strength their faith on BABA.
