Anonymous Devotee from USA says:
Jai Sairam Hetal Ji, By Baba grace I am a staunch devotee of Baba since my childhood. Thank you so much for such wonderful work maintaining this blog. Baba, always bless you and your family. I would like to share my experiences with our beloved Baba. Please do not share my name or email ID. I want to be anonymous. Hetal Ji, I am not good in English, so please do make any corrections. Sorry for the inconvenience.
I posted many of my experiences in this blog before. Baba blessed me throughout my life. He helped to finish my studies, get job, my marriage, blessed me with a kid, and we came to USA by Baba’s grace only. All these happened only because of Baba. He blessed me with a wonderful job in USA too. This was my dream and He fulfilled my wish, even though I am not having any talent to get this job. I shared about all these in my previous posts. I promised Baba that I would share my experiences further, but I am late in doing the same Baba. Please forgive me Baba.
I was doing well in my job by Baba’s grace and like that one year passed. My contract was about to end. I was in tension about that. I was waiting to hear from my Boss regarding my contract extension. At last the day came. Baba blessed with my contract extended for another 6 months. I got this news from my employer on Vijaya Dasami day. I felt so happy and blessed by Baba to hear the news on Baba Samadhi day.
I was having some health problems and prayed to Baba to save me. My Baba saved me again from all problems. I promised Baba that when I come to India, I'll come to Shirdi. Recently we went to India and we went to Tirumala and Shirdi. I want to share my Shirdi trip. It was wonderful and I felt so happy the way Baba called us to Shirdi. Our tickets to Shirdi were in waiting list and Baba confirmed those on the day of our journey. We were tensed whether we'll be able to go to Shirdi or not. But Baba called us and accepted our prayers to visit Him in Shirdi. As all of us know it's not possible to go to Shirdi without His permission. By Baba’s grace, we had wonderful Darshan of Him. We attended Kakad Aarti. While waiting in line I was able to read one chapter in Sai Satcharitra. This is one of my wishes to read at least one chapter in Shirdi. I was able to do that by Baba’s grace. We went inside Samadhi Mandir and I wanted to read the whole Kakad Aarti. But I did not take Aarti book with me. I was in the line, in front of me a lady was holding Aarti book in our language. Aarti started and I started reading Aarti looking in her book. To my wonder even though it was crowded a lot, she did not move from that place. Her friend (I guess) told her to hold the book in such a way that I can read Aarti. Thank to these kind ladies. I was able to read the whole Aarti happily without any issues. It's all because of our beloved kind father Sai. After Aarti, I wanted to see Baba dressed. But as I was in front, I've to keep moving and go out. But I went back and I kept going back without disturbing anyone so that I can see Him dressed. Guards were observing people and asking them to move forward. At last I've to move forward. Baba was almost dressed and the dress color was pink. I felt so happy because it's my favorite color. I had nice Darshan of Him and I came out. I saw Him fully dressed from Mukh Darshan gate.
We visited Dwarakamai, Gurusthan, Chavadi, Hanumanji temple, Ganesha, Shani Maharaj, Lord Shiva temples. I got some neem leaves at Gurusthan. I was looking for the neem leaves and one man came and he distributed the leaves to few of us. Thank You so much Baba. At Gurusthan, when I was in front of Baba temple, the priest gave me Baba orange cloth in cover. I felt so blessed that he gave those to me. It's all because of Baba. Thank You so much Baba. I wanted those and Baba gave me. I kept those in my puja madir. We did Sai Satyanarayana Vrat by Baba’s grace and I felt blessed to be able to do that. We did Annadan to few poor people near Chavadi. I promised Baba that I'll do Annadan and I was able to do by Baba’s grace.
Previous day, even though we went to go Dwarakamai, we couldn't step up the steps and go inside the Dwarakami as it was closed. But next day, my husband observed that they are allowing inside Dwarakamai. The line was also small. We went inside Dwarakamai, and able to touch the steps and have Baba’s Darshan closer. Thank You so much Baba. I was worried a lot about this whether You'll allow us inside Dwarakamai or not. You allowed us Baba, Thank You so much Baba. Baba forgives us always even though we do so many mistakes in our lives. We love You Baba.
While leaving Shirdi, that afternoon, we again went to have Baba Darshan. We had nice Darshan of Baba. We touched Samadhi, and His padukas. We had His theertham. Priest gave us prasadam and he also gave Baba garland on Samadhi. I wanted to give a garland to Baba, but I was not able to do that I am sorry Baba, but in return Baba gave me His garland. Thank You so much Baba. That's all I can tell You Baba in return for Your grace. We went to Khandoba temple afterwards. I was very very happy that Baba blessed all my wishes. I am fully satisfied with this trip. I wanted to walk without wearing slippers in Shirdi. Baba blessed me with that wish also. I was worried that I may forget, but I am able to walk without sippers in Shirdi. Love You so much Baba. Baba, next time, please bless me to sweep the floor in Dwarakamai, do some seva at temple Baba. I am waiting for this wish from a long time Baba.
We were on our way to Railway station, but due to traffic our auto got stuck. Somehow auto driver dropped us in Kopegaon and asked us to go in another auto to reach railway station. We were in hurry and tensed that we may miss our train. We walked few distance in Kopergaon because no auto was coming that way. At last one auto came and dropped us to Railway station on time. The train was late, so we were having enough time there. We came back to home without any hurdles. We came back to USA without any issues. Thank You so much Baba for all Your grace.
Baba as You know, I started driving here. Baba I am worried. Please be with me always Baba. Baba You are blessing me all the time Baba. I can feel it. But why am I still not peaceful Baba. Still I am worried about my health Baba. You are the one who can save me Baba. Baba I want to surrender completely at Your feet Baba. But to be honest I am not able to do that and I am not able to live with peace of mind Baba. I think it's all because of my past karmas. Baba, please forgive my mistakes and Baba please bless Your child and please bless all of us with happy, healthy and prosperous life. Baba, Please forgive me, my husband, my kid for all the mistakes we did Baba. Baba I am trying to live life in a way You like it, but still I am not able to do completely. Baba, please help me to do so Baba. Please forgive me and please be with me and my family always Baba. Baba I am leaving everything of our lives at Your feet Baba. Love You Baba.
