Anonymous Devotee says: Hi Hetal Ji, Please post my experience with BABA in your site. You are doing a wonderful job of spreading BABA’s message. May BABA bless you with immense happiness. I always look forward to your mails. Reading the devotees experiences brings us even closer to our beloved BABA. Please keep me anonymous in this mail. Please edit it if it seems too long.
Sai Maa, Please forgive me for posting this experience so late. I should have done this long back. Finally I am writing it down. SAI MAA, please help me to convey my thoughts/experience in the best manner possible through this post.
I have been a BABA devotee since mid of 2009. Since then, BABA has kept me hooked towards Him. In mid of 2009, I was going through a tough phase in my life. It was both professional and personal. I was looking for a job change. Somehow it was not happening. Moreover my family was tensed regarding my marriage as they had been trying a lot to fix the same from a long time. Even though, I was aware of BABA before. But I never prayed to Him with heartfelt devotion.
During this tough time, I was drawn towards Him. I started NAV GURUVAR VRAT for my marriage (as I wanted to ease my family’s tension first). At the same time, I was also trying for job change. But BABA had different plans for me.
At the end of 9 weeks I got an offer from a good company. I thanked BABA for the same and calmed my mind thinking that marriage time has not yet come.
I started surfing about BABA a lot, read SAI Satcharitra. Also daily I started worshiping Baba. I am a kind of person who is quite impatient. So I used to cry before BABA that why my marriage is not getting fixed. Also I used to doubt my Bhakti that whether I really love BABA or so I just pray Him to get benefits. Even now after two years, I get such doubts sometimes. To curb my anxiety, BABA came in my sister’s dream. My sister had just completed her SAI vrat. My family, during those times, was tensed about my brother’s job also. He had passed his B.E., but was still searching for job. My sister asked BABA whether my marriage will be fixed. BABA replied “YES”. She then asked whether my brother will get a job. HE replied in affirmative. Then my sister thought of asking about her career. But before she could the same the dream ended.
Hearing her dream, we all in family knew that probably things for which we are tensed will happen for sure in future. But the correct time has not come. Since it will be a long wait BABA through dream assured us all.
After 1 and ½ years in early 2011, my brother got his job offer. Also my marriage was fixed in late 2010. But due to some reasons the marriage was postponed and is now happening on 19th Jan 2012 (i.e. Thursday Baba’s day). Also by BABA’s grace I have got a wonderful partner.
During these 2 years since 2009, BABA has become an integral part of my life. My day starts and ends with HIS thoughts. Still at times I get impatient and cry before BABA, and at times I doubt whether my prayers reach to HIM. But still in every happy/sad moment, fist thought, which crosses in my mind, is about BABA.
I hope BABA will bless me with a wonderful SHIRDI trip for which I am planning post marriage. BABA please give us all SAI devotees the strength, and patience to go on in this BHAKTI path. No matter how adverse the situation may be. Please be our side always.
OM SAI RAM
