Om Sai Ram. Jai Sai Ganesha. Om Sai Ram Hetal Ji. Many thanks for the wonderful service you are rendering in the form of this blog. It gives us all so much of positive hope and increases our faith manifold in our Gurudeva. Here are a few of my recent best experiences. Request you to please publish them. Please mention me as ‘Sai’s Daughter’ and keep my email id and name anonymous. Thank you so much.
I Found Baba Unexpectedly
My husband is not a Devotee of Baba and I have been praying Baba sincerely to take him into his fold soon. After our marriage, I have been applying UDI on his forehead and slowly he also has got into that habit, and applies UDI on his own every day after bath. Also he takes care of Puja necessities for Baba on Thursdays and encourages me to buy lovely flowers for my Deva. Also I offer water to Baba everyday and my husband has also started doing the same. I take all this improvements in him as Baba’s sweet blessings and positive indications that my husband will soon become a strong devotee of my Gurudeva Baba.
Now let me explain the experience. After shifting to a new house, and our marriage, I was setting up my home shrine and neatly arranging all the idols and photographs of all the God’s and Goddesses. My husband also had His entire collection of God’s idols packed up from his old house and it was not yet opened. I thought of unpacking that packet and arranging his God’s also in the shrine. As I picked up the packet, I wished to get Baba’s idol or photo from it, though I thought it was impossible since my husband did not worship Baba. But to my amazement, as I opened the packet and took out the first photo from it, my hands froze. It was Baba’s photo. I was thrilled. When I asked my husband about it, he did not seem sure about how Baba’s photo was with him and who gave it to him or how exactly he got it. But I know it was My Baba’s Leela to fulfill my desire and I know Baba’s blessings are with us always. When I told this to my Mother, she said that Baba entered my husband’s life long back in the form of this photo. Actually we had some problems during our courtship years and were separated. My Mother said that Baba must have come to him during that period to settle everything between us and that is how everything was resolved and we got married by my Baba’s grace. How wonderful and merciful Baba is. I am worshipping that photo now in my shrine at home daily. Baba thanks a lot for everything. We will always be indebted to You. Love You a lot.
My Mother Gifted Me Baba’s Calendar And Baba’s Leela Book.
Baba arranged my wedding and it took place in Baba’s temple. Everything was made possible by Baba and here is the detailed experience, which was earlier posted on this blog.I had earnestly invited Baba to attend my wedding and Baba did attend. One of my friends gifted me Baba’s photo, which my Mother told me later and I did not get to see that photo as I was at my In-law’s place and moved back to my workplace soon after marriage. So that Baba’s photo that I got as my wedding gift was at my home with my Mother. Later when my Mother visited us for the very first time after my wedding, she came with the same photo of Baba that I got on my wedding. We were very happy about the fact that my Mother came to my home first time after my wedding with Baba’s photo, which was also my wedding gift. This made us feel very blessed seeing Baba’s Leela. He had His own right time to let me get the photo through my Mother. I felt doubly blessed and happy since my Mother gave it to me in my own home after my wedding. I love my Mother a lot and she is the first God to me. So this entire set of well coordinated incident by Baba made us very very happy. Also, I had a desire of having a Baba’s calendar, which has beautiful photos of Baba and I saw few people having it on their desks at office. Somehow I was not able to get one. Finally my Mother bought one for me, when I told her to get me one. She got that calendar with Baba’s photos also during her first visit to my home after my marriage. That also added to my happiness. To add to it, my Mother also got a book about Baba’s Leela. It was different book. She gave that to me and asked me to read it. I am yet to read it and I hope to start reading it soon. Thanks a lot Baba for blessing us always, we love You a lot. Thanks for getting me born to such wonderful parents, please do take good care of my Mother. She is the best and the sweetest. Shower Your choicest blessings on her always Dear GuruDeva Dattatreya.
I Got Back My Umbrella
When my Mother was visiting me, we had been to Pizza Corner for our lunch one day. There I had left my Umbrella, which my Mother had got for me, when I had been to my hometown. It was a very nice umbrella of a very good quality. I do not have same kind of umbrellas here. So when I realized that I had left my umbrella in the Pizza store after my Mother reminded me, I was really sad. My Mother comforted me saying that Baba will definitely get me my Umbrella back from the store. She trusts Baba a lot, and so I also started praying Baba to help me get back my Umbrella and I resolved to be more attentive and careful in the future. As my Mother was leaving that day, we dropped her in the railway station and on our way back, we went to check in the Pizza corner. To my delight, the person in the cash counter handed me my umbrella with a big smile as soon as I asked for my umbrella. I was so happy and couldn’t believe my luck, which was only because of my Baba. He is just awesome; the most merciful and listens to the slightest of our prayers. He is the best Big Father we can have. Thanks a lot Baba for everything and all Your kind grace and blessings.
My Husband Is Slowly Becoming Baba’s Devotee
My Husband is not a Devotee of Baba, but I sincerely hope and pray that by the time this experience gets published, he would have become Baba’s devotee. He does Puja to the God’s in our home shrine every day. Since I offer water to Baba daily, he also started doing that and he encourages me to buy flowers and Prasad for Baba on Thursdays. He always agrees when I want to do something for Baba or buy Baba’s idol. Sometimes I tell him a few of Baba’s Leelas and very rarely I send him also via email the blogs posted here. But I am not sure if he reads them. I have also suggested him to read Sai Satcharitra when he was facing issues at his office, though he agreed to read, he has not yet started reading. Anyway, I have left it on Baba to inspire him to become His Devotee and realize Baba’s grace and greatness. I make him offer garland to Baba sometimes on Thursdays. Once when my Mother visited us, she brought flowers for Baba and kept one flower for my husband to offer to Baba after bath. I told my husband about it and he agreed. However after he came from bath, we were busy since my Mother was leaving for our hometown on that day. So we were not able to remind my husband to offer the flower to Baba. We got ready and dropped my Mother at the railway station, and there my Mother told me that, maybe my husband would have forgotten to offer the flower to Baba, so she asked me to offer it to Baba after reaching home. I usually do not pester my husband to do all the Puja related things, and let him do as he likes to. So I did not want to ask him again to offer the flower to Baba. After I reached home, I went to take that flower, which I had kept besides Baba to offer to Baba. However, I was pleased and delighted to see that the flower was already on Baba’s lap!! I asked my husband and he said that he had already offered it to Baba immediately after his bath! I was so happy, and took it as an indication that slowly, but surely my husband was getting attracted towards Baba and was becoming His Devotee! I am sure Baba will bless us and make my husband His strong Devotee soon, so that together we can do Puja, Bhajans etc at home for Baba and we can also share Baba’s sweet Leelas. Currently I hesitate to write Sai-Naam-Jaap in front of my husband and I do not talk more about Baba. I feel bad about this, and I just pray to Baba that hopefully soon my husband will also become His Devotee and we can talk about my sweet Baba a lot at home. I am sure Baba will fulfill this earnest wish of mine soon. Thanks a lot Baba. Also, as mentioned above, since I got Baba’s photograph from my husband’s pack of God’s idols, I am sure that is also an indication that my husband is already chosen by Baba as His devotee, though he is not currently aware and with time, soon he will realize this, and love Baba a lot.
May Your blessings reach all of us always Baba. Let there be peace and happiness in every home across the whole wide world. May all the people be happy under Your shelter. Please bless us all with good health, peace, prosperity, wealth and happiness. We love You a lot Baba and many many thanks to You for everything. We surrender at Your Lotus feet. Om Sai Shri Sai Jai Jai Sai.
