This is 1000th post of this blog. Million thanks to Lord Sai Baba for reaching this milestone.In today's post, a devotee shares his experience as how Lord Sai Baba took him in His fold and solved his problem of unemployment.
Anonymous Devotee from India says: I am from Bangalore and work in a software company. I am married. I started believing in Baba, when I got engaged. I think Sai Baba always help those, who believe in Him truly. I stay in a rented house and it’s on road side. There is no parking facility and we park our 2 wheeler in front of our house. Once I was going to my home town for Ganesh festival. I had purchased my bike 6 months back, so I was little worried about leaving my bike outside. I have pasted Sai Baba photo in front and back side of my bike. So I thought Sai Baba is there to look after my bike. I covered my bike with bike cover and left for my hometown.
I was working in one of the software company. I completed 1 year in that company and was settled. One day news came that company is going to merge with another company. We all were worried. Everyone was discussing about layoff. I was not much worried because I thought that I am doing good job and I will be safe. But I was facing problems with my team. As my other colleagues were very mean.
Once I did my work, but still I got scolded from my team leader. Then I asked Baba please search for me some other job. Then one day news came that there will be layoff and my name was also there in that list. I was shocked when they called me and within 15 minutes of discussion with my manager they told me to leave the office with all your belongings. I was totally surprised and was thinking what is happening. Why this happened to me. I did not understand what to do. I told my wife about this and she told don’t worry Sai Baba is there to take care. My wife is staunch devotee of Sai Baba. Before and after my marriage also, she used to tell me about Baba and she used to tell to read Sai Satcharitra. She bought me Sai Satcharitra from Shirdi, which I never read once. She used to tell come to Baba temple, but I used to ignore her. I used to believe Baba, but I think somewhere I forgot Him. Then I thought now is the right time to remember Baba.
I started reading Sai Satcharitra and going to Baba temple. I started searching for job and used to attend interview, but nothing happened for 1 month. I was getting calls, but it was mostly for outstation job. I was not interested because I have to leave my wife here. So I didn’t attend those interviews. One of my colleagues was also laid off and within 2 months he got job. He used to tell me accept whatever offer comes. Don’t sit idle or else it will be very difficult later to get. I used to tell daily Baba please somehow get me job here in Bangalore itself. And also I wanted to tell my colleague that Baba is there to take care of me and you need not worry about me.
One day I got call from one company and it was Thursday. That person took my interview and asked me to come to face to face interview with manager on Monday 15th Oct. When I heard that I was extremely happy because that day was Baba Maha Samadhi day. I knew I will surely get this job. I went that day and interview was good. Manager told he will let me know soon. I prayed Baba please get me this job. Also I was doing Sai Vrat that time. After 1 month also, I didn’t hear anything from that company. I thought maybe they have not selected. I was very upset and ask Baba why it’s happening to me.
I use to read Sai blogs daily. In that I read that Shraddha and Saburi are very important. You should have firm believe in Sai Baba. Sometimes He will test. I waited for some more days. One day I got call from HR from that company and she told that I am selected and should come for HR round. That day was Thursday and I was very happy. I thanked Baba. Finally I got that job. I prayed Baba that if I get this job, then I will come to Shirdi and also write in this blog. Really Baba is taking care of everyone; just we need to have trust and patience. Surely He will shower His blessings on His devotee. Please remember Baba always. Please forgive me if there is any spelling and grammatical mistake. My koti koti namaskara to Sadguru Shri Sai Nath Maharaj.
