Sai Sister Swati Ji from Germany says: Om Sai Ram, once you become devotee of Baba and put all your worries to His holy feet with full faith in Him, each and every day Baba pulls you towards Him and strengthens your faith. Baba will definitely show you His presence in your daily life. Hetal Ji, I have shared some of my experiences in your Blog. Thanks for uploading them. May Baba always be with you, me and all of His devotees. Please do not disclose my email id.
Here comes my recent experience. I usually go to Sai temple on Thursday. Before leaving to temple, one of my friends called me and asked for Prasad from temple. I said ok if I will get some, then I will bring for you. Here I would like to mention that I stay in Germany and here in temple Priest offers food, fruits and sweets to Baba prepared by him and by devotees, who bring something. After Aarti, everybody eats offered Prasad there itself so no question of bringing home. As I reached temple, I totally forgot about my friend's wish. I indulged myself in Bhajans with full devotion and before Aarti, Priest offered Prasad to Baba. He does it with love and devotion like mother gives food to her Child. He puts small towel surrounded to Baba's (Murti) shoulders and then offers food to Baba's mouth. It is really gives Divine feeling especially, when you prepare something for Baba. It feels that Baba is really eating your Prasad. As I brought Papaya for Baba, he kept it in Baba's lotus feet. During Prasad offering, Hanuman Chalisa played in temple, so everybody sings along. While offering, Priest never gives offered Prasad to anybody. I have never seen. So I closed my eyes and enjoyed singing Hanuman Chalisa. Meanwhile, when he offered Apple to Baba, I thought what if Baba bites the Apple and give it to me. Then I thought how foolish I am. It is not possible to get and have closed my eyes again and singing with full concentration.
Suddenly Lady who was sitting beside me tapped my leg to receive Prasad from Priest as I was not aware that he was giving me apple after offering to Baba. I and my husband's tears rolled down with joy. We felt very much blessed.
After reaching home, it was late night so we thought of eating Apple in morning. Before cutting Apple my friend's wish came to my mind. My husband said it was not only for us but for her too. Her desire for Prasad was true. So Baba has sent it through us. I gave some portion of Apple to her and told her all story. She felt very nice and blessed. As it is written in Sai Satcharitra Baba was Omniscient. I felt it, it's really true He is omniscient and omnipresent. He knows everything and fulfills all your desires. You just need to surrender yourself to His holy feet, rest Baba will do for you. Right now I am facing very tough time of life as my small son is not well. But I know Baba is there with me. He will do everything alright. As Baba is there with me, I need not to be worried about anything. He is my father. He will look after us. OM Sai Ram.
I have one more experience which happened today. Due to my Son's sickness, sometimes I feel very low being mother. It is quite natural. After daily prayer to deprive my negative thoughts, I played Sai Satcharitra on YouTube. Listening to it gives me strength. Whole morning, I was thinking of Baba. In afternoon, somebody knocked the door. My son jumped to open the door. I told him to ask first who is there. My son asked who is there. There was one German salesman and asked my son where is your Mom? I was behind my son before I could say anything he said "Baba is there". I thought he said Papa is there. I simply ignored it. He asked me about something so I refused to take anything then he said no problem and said Om Sai Ram. I was shocked to hear Om Sai Ram by him. I replied him Om Sai Ram and he went forward. I have closed my door in shocked state and then saw Baba's picture on the wall opposite to the entrance door. He must have seen Baba's picture, so he said Baba is there. And I misunderstood. I regret I couldn't ask him how he knows Baba as me and my son was alone in house. Somehow, Baba felt me His presence through him. Like Baba is telling me don't worry I am near you and everywhere. It is true that when you surrender to Sai, you will see whole world is indulged into Sai.
Otherwise, how come a German man came to the Door and said Baba is there and Om Sai Ram. It is not a mere coincidence. It is all planed by Baba. He knows everything and does always good for our well being. Baba it is my humble request to You never leave me alone. Please keep me in your holy feet. Please forgive my all sins and ego. Take me to your possession. Om Sai Ram.
