Hi Hetal Ji, please do not disclose any of my details as it is of no significance. I have experienced Baba's immeasurable Fatherly love. I sat down to write just one experience of mine in detail, but He made me summarize some of the most heart touching experiences. Thanks a ton for your unflinching service.
My Pranams to all the blessed daughters and sons of our Baba. I mentally bow to all the blessed souls, who are instrumental in creating and maintaining this beautiful blog. With Baba's blessing and inspiration I am venturing this Herculean task of putting forward to you all, the experiences that Baba has showered on this daughter of His. I would rather call it as an overview of my experiences till date.
Baba took me to His abode using my parents, when I was 10 or 11 years of age. I remember two things Samadhi Mandir and we sat near a well and had our lunch. At that tender age, I just considered Him as one of the Gods looking at all the paraphernalia in Shirdi. I got married on a Thursday (the importance of the day was never realized by me at that time). Baba again summoned me at the age of 23 along with my newly born baby and my husband. The reason for mentioning my age is, even at this age I was not able to recognize my father and this was the visit, when I got a right royal treatment from Him. In the huge rush, I could walk straight to Baba's Samadhi as people were making way for me. The priest took my baby from me and put her on Baba's Samadhi and I could sit in front of Samadhi for a long time with my baby and no one objected me from staying there. I realized after a lapse of 1 year, that it was a miracle only after I related it to my friend who happens to be a devotee of Baba. During that time a situation arose, when I had to go back to India as my husband would be on a long term project at a different place and he didn't want to leave us alone (me and my baby). As you all know how difficult it is to live in USA without a car, driving license, a credit card as everything is quite far. It was then when I got introduced to our wish fulfilling SAI SATCHARITRA parayan by the same friend. It is a wonder how I could join my husband, when he was on that project for almost a year. There were so many married people on the project, but none of their families could stay with them.
As and when my daughter fell sick or wouldn't sleep, UDI would be working wonders, as I was apprehensive of taking care of the baby with no elders around me, till date We are completely dependent on UDI for anything and everything.
Next came our GC issue, which was like taking ages still we were not getting it and my husband, who was of a cheerful disposition and always had a positive outlook started being morose. Baba answered me thru one of my friends to do a 40 day Deeksha and we got our GC before I finished Deeksha, which was a miracle in itself as none of the people we knew got their GC's before or after us for a long time.
Then came year 2011, which was the worst year of my life. There was some kind of a strange atmosphere between my husband and me. My husband, who was always very loving and caring and who wouldn't let even his daughter say anything to me started being very rude and harsh. I couldn't bare this animosity and it took a toll on my health. I was not able to share my feelings with anyone neither my parents nor my friends. Then Baba made me start Nav Guruvaar Vrat, when I pleaded Him to help me move into a house, where I can live happily because from the time we moved to that apartment I was not at all happy. I am not exaggerating, but to me it looked as if Baba ran to my help and made us buy a beautiful house before I even finished my Vrat and is keeping me very happy since then. Not only me, but my whole family is very happy. It is at this time of my life that I really understood the meaning of
" Ruso mama Priyambika majavari Pitahi Ruso
Ruso mama priyangana Priyasutatmaja hi Ruso....."
Since then I started looking at my life from an altogether different perspective. Come what may but my father is always there for me holding me in His protective arms. It took 38 years for this realization to dawn upon me an ignoramus, whereas highly elevated souls like Adi Shankaracharya after attaining self realization have also taken Maha Samadhi at the age of 32 itself.
I bow to one and all, who spurred me to get closer to Baba. Firstly I prostrate to my parents because of whom I got this inclination towards God, to my friends who made me read Holy Sai Satcharitra and Aartis, to my husband who made me realize that excepting Baba everything else is transient, to Hetal Ji and others who provided this platform, to all the devotees who inspired me to write, and last but not the least to Baba who has given me human form which has an edge over other species, and I humbly pray to Him to let my mind think only about Baba, let my hand write only about Baba, let my mouth sing only about Baba, and let my ears hear only about Baba. Oh Baba! I have wasted all the precious years of my life which is detrimental to my spiritual progress. I beg you to help me not to waste my remaining time any more. If at all any I concept has cropped up in my mind (i.e. ego), I sincerely urge You to press it and uplift this soul. My humble request to all the readers is, it is not me who is writing this. It is only Baba or else how can a person, who has never in her life pen down anything can write so much?
OM SRI SAI NATHAYA NAMAH! OM NAMAH SHIVAY!
