Diyas Miracle Of Sai Nath
Anonymous Devotee from India says:
Hi Hetal Ji, Thanks a lot for wonderful site to share our experiences with this entire world. I am sharing one of the miracle happened yesterday. I want to share a wonderful experience that happened on 28th Feb 2013. Ours is a big family. My father is a Sai devotee, so we used to visit Shirdi at least once in a year since my childhood (approx from past 30 years i can say). So, we all are Sai devotees in our family.
We used to perform Sai Bhajan in our home occasionally, inviting close friends, relatives and neighbors and do Sai pooja and Bhajan. This time my brother's mother-in-law planned to do Sai Bhajan in my brother’s house. I prayed to Baba to make me attend this Bhajan as I was having little more work in my office. By Baba's grace, I have no work on that day and started early from office. Baba helped me to reach home early. I got ready and went to my brother’s house with my wife. Baba, Ganeshji and Matadi (photos) were decorated with beautiful flowers.
Now Bhajan Mandali wants to start the Bhajan, so they asked us to lit the diyas (lamps) near Baba's photo. We were performing this pooja, Bhajan on open terrace. As all sides are open, winds or air blowing from all sides. We failed to lit the lamps after struggling a lot. But finally we managed to lit the diyas and make them burn. They were burning, but due to wind, they were putting off. However, we managed to lit them with continuous efforts and started the Bhajan.
Bhajan started around at 7:15 pm. We were feeling internally bad as diyas were putting off due to wind frequently. Finally diyas started burning continuously after few minutes (approx after 30 minutes of starting the Bhajan).We prayed Baba to take care of diyas and see to it they burn till end of Bhajan. Around 150 people participated in the Bhajan. We all enjoyed Sai's songs and danced on few of the songs. Diyas were still burning. We had very good Bhajan for nearly 3.5 hrs. Finally, Aarti song was sung to close the Bhajan. All the guests, friends had dinner and left the place around 11:30 pm. Still the Diyas were burning. Around 12:00 am in the morning, we wrapped all the work after having dinner and cleaned the terrace. Still the Diyas were burning. My brother, mother, few relatives, kids, etc stayed back as it was too late in the night and slept in front of small stage, where Sai, ganeshji, mataji's photos were placed. Diyas were still burning. It was around 2 am now. All the people slept now around 2 am.
My brother got up in the morning around 5 am and to his great surprise and wonder the Diyas were burning still. My brother called everyone over phone and informed this miracle of Baba. Few of friends came again in the morning to see the Diyas. He called me around 7 am to tell this miracle. But I was sleeping and got up around 8 am and went to see the miracle (burning diyas). I was surprised to see the Diyas burning still. This shows, Baba has filled our desire to have the diyas keep burning not only till end of Bhajan, but till next day. Diyas were burning till 9:30 am next day.
Jai Bolo Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai. Have Faith and patience. He will take care of the rest. No wind can dare to put off any diya that is protected by safe hands of our Sai Nath Maharaj.
Sai Will Show You The Way Always

Dear Hetal Ji, I am a recent devotee of Sai ram and this is my first post in this website. Please keep my name and email id anonymous. I read this blog first thing every morning and it fills me with hope and faith. Thank you for your good work.
I came to know of Sai Baba only after my marriage in 2010, as my husband was a sincere devotee for a long time. Initially, I was not so interested in knowing about Sai, as I did not have belief and my husband also never pushed me to it.
A couple years later, we were going through difficult times in our life and my husband started reading one chapter from Sai Satcharitra every day. He used to read it aloud and slowly slowly I was pulled towards Sai Ram. Although my interest and faith grew gradually, I felt that I still did not have 100% devotion, as I had a lot of questions in my mind. I even had the blessing of visiting Shirdi in Sept 2012, but I was still not convinced. Then I had the following life changing experience that quashed all doubts and questions. Now Sai Ram is my only Saviour!
Towards the end of last year, my dad fell unwell and needed an emergency surgery. I rushed from UK to India to be with him. It was a traumatic time for our whole family as it was a major surgery. Since I didn't know what else to do and felt so helpless, I prayed to Sai and left everything at His feet. When we were going to the hospital, I was praying that show me a sign that everything is going to be ok in any form. I had not started reading this blog at that point of time and had no clue that a lot of devotees also look for signs for Him in the form of His photo or His name anywhere. Anyway, I kept looking and looking and unfortunately I could not see any sign until we reached the hospital. I was almost in tears and was scared that something might go wrong. Then we entered the hospital, which is quite popular and so was very crowded. I knew that there was a Vinayagar statue in the hallway just outside the doctor's cabin. So I thought I'll go pray to Ganesha thinking of Him as Sai and hope all will go well.
When I went there, I was shocked. Just near the Ganesha statue, a new idol had been installed, which was not there before. It was our Sai in all His glory. I was moved to tears and fell at His feet. I knew that moment that my dad will be ok and He will take care. Everything went smoothly and touchwood, my dad will live a very long life with Sai's blessings.
I pray to HIM to bless me with a healthy child and that everyone should have 'Shraddha' and 'Saburi' in Him always. He will always show us the way and be our strong support, even if we don't realise it. I had a few more experiences after that, which increased my faith in Him. I will share them later. Now thanks to this wonderful website I read His leelas everyday! Om Sri Sai Ram!
Sai Blessed Me

Hi, This is my 2nd post, a short one though. My first post is here. Hetal Ji, Anil Gupta Ji and Rana Gill Ji, thanks a lot for maintaining this blog. It's wonderful and gives a lot of hope to all of us, a true Sai service.
When I reached home last night from work, I felt a teasing pain in my left arm only. I couldn't think of any plausible reason as to why it was happening. I mean nothing like I'd have got bumped into something unknowingly earlier, which is being felt only now, nothing of the sort. I vaguely remember reading somewhere this could be starting of a stroke (it's so easy for us to think the worst). Immediately despite the fact that I am quite healthy by Baba's grace, I remembered our dear Sai then and left it onto Him to take care of it. I offered my daily prayer thereafter and it was gone; no sign of pain at all as if none existed. I love my Sai. He is there to take care of all of us, so why fear!!
