When Lord Sai Baba wishes to grace His devotee, then the devotee does not care for his/her own welfare because it is then attended by Him.
Sai Brother Ashwin Ji from Singapore says: First of all, I would like to offer my Shashtang Namaskar (bow) to Shri Sainath Maharaj. I would like to thank Him for everything, especially for reminding me to write my experiences on this blog.

I would like to Thank Hetal Ji for creating the blog. There are numerous people around the world, who experience the existence of Lord Sainath Maharaj in their day to day life and this blog gives them a way to share those experiences with others.

I would like to thank my parents, for taking me to Shirdi Sainath Maharaj temple, when I was hardly 8 years. I still remember I asked my Mom to buy a ring for me, which has Lord Sainath Maharaj’s photo. My mom told me that she has a ring for me at home (Amravati). But since I was kid, I became impatient to get the ring, but I didn’t get it in Shirdi. That’s when Sainath Maharaj taught me first lesson.

  • First lesson: Have patience in life (Saburi)

    When we all came back to home (Amravati), my mom showed me the silver ring with Sainath Maharaj’s picture engraved in it. In Shirdi, I was asking for normal ring with His photo, here He gave me Silver ring with His picture engraved. But this was not the time, when I understood His existence.

    I was in class 10th and after my exam during summer vacation, Sainath Maharaj asked me to read Shri Sai Satcharitra. I was (and still I am) very poor in reading Hindi and we had Hindi version at home. So my mom told me to listen to it, while she reads. I used to listen to Sai Satcharitra read by my Mom. One night, I got a dream which changed me and my life.

    Dream: I was sitting on sofa and Sainath Maharaj walked into Drawing room and told me ‘Tu mujhpe vishwas nahi rakhta hai na?’ (you don’t believe in Me?).

    I woke up the same moment and was very scared. But since then He is with me everywhere and anywhere I have been in many forms be it a temple closed to my hostel in Mumbai, in the form of photo frame in wooden logs shop in Jaipur, on painting at the back of auto rishksaw (taxi) in Delhi, Big temple in Dubai, magnet frame in Johannesburg and (most important) the place where I booked my flat in Pune (Lord Sainath Maharaj’s big Idol in temple can be seen from the drawing and kitchen window). Lord Sainath Maharaj gave many things like gold medal (for good marks), Awards (best employee), flat, car, good job etc. I, from the bottom of my heart, would again like to thank Lord Sainath Maharaj.

    Year 2008 was a very big year for me and it changed the way I look at life and materialist things. I got to know the real meaning of “money can never buy happiness”.



    I was never interested in love marriage as I thought there are many people, who would like to enjoy my wedding and have got many hopes from the same. So I would marry to the girl selected by my parents. In the middle of 2008, I along with my parents visited a Girl’s house, whose alliance had come to my Dad. I spoke to the girl and liked her. Kundali’s also matched and ‘Roka’ (marriage fixed) was done. Things were going on perfectly. But then Maya has to play the part and because of certain things just before Diwali the marriage was called off. Diwali festival for us as well as for Girl’s family was not good. After Diwali, whatever things were exchanged during last few months were returned back to each other. I became too sad and lost the purpose of life. I cried a lot on my Birthday. Next day, I called the girl, as I was missing her. She too was missing me. But now that marriage is being called off, it was difficult to talk to parents for the same. 2009 started and my sister introduced me to Sai Vrat Katha and a blog site. I thought to write my experiences on that blog, but somehow I couldn’t. I started doing Sai Vrat on every Thursday and used to have food as Prasad after reading Sai Vrat Katha. On one of the weekend, in Jan, Lord Sainath Maharaj did a miracle. He asked me to read Sai Satcharitra on Friday evening. I started reading and tears rolled out many time while reading, especially in 42nd, 43rd and 44th chapters. By Sainath Maharaj’s grace I was able to finish it on Sunday evening. I couldn’t believe myself (I being a slow Hindi reader), I was feeling happy and lucky as well as sad and unlucky. I was feeling Happy and lucky because Lord Sainath Maharaj is with me and Sad and unlucky because I could not meet Him in person.
  • Second Lesson: Worship Him whole heartedly and faithfully. (Shraddha)

    In Feb 2009, my parents got ready for my marriage with the same girl. In the same month, my office work became too hectic. One Thursday, I was on fast and due to office work I could not come home the whole night, so I was not able read Sai Vrat Katha. Since I didn’t read Sai Vrat Katha, I couldn’t break the fast and have food. I went home next morning, read Sai Vrat Katha, offered the food as prasad and had that Prasad. Within few days, our parents spoke to each other and again the marriage got fixed. We got engaged in March. My ‘would be’ also started doing Sai Vrat (Thursday fast) and Sai Vrat Katha. In April, I went to my parent’s place and my mom gave me milk on the Thursday morning with chocolate in it. I did not notice that it was Thursday and I was supposed to be on fast. Later after taking bath, I came to know that I had chocolate milk and it was Thursday, I was so depressed that my fast chain is broken. I then calculated the weeks since I started fasting, to my surprise I already completed 21 Thursdays and this was 22nd Thursday. Lord Sainath Maharaj exactly knows what Bhakthas need and when to give. By His grace, I got married to same girl. We are about to complete 3 years of our marriage and 2 years of stay in Singapore.
Do I need to say that by His grace, we could visit Sainath Maharaj Temple the immediate next day we landed in Singapore.

Bow to Shri Sainath Maharaj, Peace be to all.

  3. Sai Ram Ashwinji,

    Very beautiful experience, Baba is always with you.
    It is true - Faith on Baba and Patience can do wonders..

    I would like to share my small experience which happened today morning. For the last one week i wished to see Baba early morning and was trying hard to get up very early, got health issues too which made me sleep late night so couldn't get up & was feeling sad. I was asking baba to do a small miracle for me and get me some book of his from any one. This Wednesday i went to Sai temple in night time and was eagerly waiting that baba will fulfill my little wish but it was not and i was like talking to baba why dint you do a small miracle, you know am eagerly waiting to get your book some how. but still wanted to see Baba early mrng and was praying him to wake me up.

    Today around 5.30am in sleep i saw Sai Baba & to my wonder i woke up without any alarm,thanked Sai, and visited Bhairava temple for kakad arti and abishekam. I was very much happy with darshan. while leaving the temple i remembered about the book wish and was asking baba to get me somehow today, Sai Dasanji is the founder of the temple and he stays there only, so i just had a talk with him in mean time he said wait I WILL GET YOU A BOOK , I was jumping in happiness ,thanked Baba a lot, the Book was - his Experience with Sai baba.I was very much happy that Baba really listens us and he knows when, what to give to his children..

    Sorry Hetalji to share in the comment box but i couldn't stop my self in sharing it.

  9. you are very lucky brother baba reunited u with the same gal....am just hoping that baba reunites me also with my love, my husband since life has been so meaningless since we have seperated and looking at the horrible things that have happened mending this broken relation seems impossible but the only way impossible can be turned possible is by his grace. not sure when wud that fall on me and baba will show mercy on me soon. baba am really tired of my life now please come and help me soon baba. m extremely disturbed with the way my personal life is going and that too with no mistake as such from my end i mean no mistake big enough to deserve such harsh punishments...i have tried more than i can and now am really sick and tired of it and have gone numb from inside...nothing interests me and nothing excites me am simply pushing days sumhow and its getting harder day by day to live in this misery uncertainity and loneliness.
    I pray baba to give all the people happiness especially in relationships/marriages coz in these cases everything depends on the partner even if u put best efforts from ur end u fail if u dont get support...so baba for such critical things in life everyone needs ur help baba so please dont give neone pain on that front coz it hurts and it hurts a lot. The only feeling that keeps me alive is atleast baba loves me and he is there to listen to me and i can vent out my feelings to him else i see no reason to carry on. love u baba please come soon ur child needs u the most now.

    Jai sai ram

  18. Very nice experience! It is due to Sai Baba's grace that you were able to marry the same girl, whom early the marriage was broken off. It is also very nice that Baba gave you the chocolate milk, since he knew that you had already finished your fast. Om Sai Ram!

  23. Baba, so many people with numerous problems. Please hold our hands and lead us through the right path. Shraddha Saburi, the two miracle words but the toughest to follow. You are blessed Ashwin that Baba is with you all throughout your journey of life. May He keep showering you blessings on you continously. Baba, my life is really becoming hell day by day. Vijay just does not seem to understand the meaning of marriage and does not want to come back to me. Please Baba, i am really tired waiting for good time to come. Please bring him back to me. You only can do this. YOU can make this happen, make this marriage work. Please clear his clouded mind and show him the right way. Give my life the hope. Jai Sairam
