Anonymous Devotee from USA says:
I have had faced so many hurdles in my life, but SAI BABA has blessed my whole family since childhood. This is my second experience to this wonderful blog of yours. You are a special child of Baba, who chose you for bringing faith and devotion to all devotees across the world. One, who is facing problems or suffering due to their bad karma, goes through the devotee’s experiences in the website and they will experience a strong feeling that He is their out to help them. I am one of them, who have utmost faith and love for Baba, but sometimes our faith gets shattered due to innumerable worldly problems, but still I feel we can never leave Baba as He loves us immensely.
OM SAI RAM Hetal Didi, I wish to keep my experience as anonymous and please feel free to edit where necessary. I am aware of Sai Baba since my childhood, but I only used pray Him like any other Gods without much attention or focus. My life changed upside down with the sudden death of my father at a tender age of 13. My mother is an illiterate and we lost everything my father had. My father was a landlord, so he never worked nor had a job because he used to sell land and we never had any problem during my childhood.
But after the sudden demise of my father, I realised that money just came and went away. My mother, sister and I were left with one house and 3 acres of irrigation land. Meanwhile we faced many many struggles in our lives, but God had been kind we were able to pursue our study on medicine and move ahead in life. My mother sold remaining gold, paddy fields for our studies (almost everything she had). Due all this, I would always be in strange state of mind and also since my father’s death I never felt good. Even in my college days, everyone used to mock at me as I never enjoyed hanging out with them for movies or any other things.
Later I and my sister got married, which is again Baba's blessing to wonderful person. After marriage, I moved to USA. I could not continue my studies here after my marriage due to my continuous ailments one after another. As you all know health service is bit expensive in USA, but my husband was always supportive of my health. I have undergone 2 surgeries and now I am in depression because in spite of studying for the exams for getting a residency I am unable to give due to the ailments. I even took anti depression pills, but none worked. And now I finally gave my studies and trying to get pregnant but all in vain. After all those hurdles, I faced I am still stuck in my life with no career nor proper health nor a child. But I still have faith in SAI that one day He will surely help me as He has sailed us across this far.
3 months back, my husband lost his job and even though he tried for many jobs and completed several rounds of interview in three different positions. He was still waiting for their final call. It was one fine day which happened to be my first week of Sai 9 Thursday pooja. He got a call from previous employer and they offered him a job without any interview, but at a different location all due to blessing and Baba's grace.
Recently I am suffering with a new health issue. I hit my right knee into the bathtub few months ago. It is bothering me now and I visited doctor. He said that I might have an injured menisci or ligaments and told me to get an MRI Scan. After giving scan, on the same day I got call from hospital only to say my scan is normal and not to worry and gave me conservative treatment like applying ice at the particular place. I still have a mild swelling, but I hope it will go away as I have faith in Baba He will heal it.
Here are many more Baba's blessings :
- 1.Me and my sister are doctors when many of our relatives made fun of us and said that we could never be.
- 2.Our marriages though a bit delayed, but we got wonderful husbands. My sister is blessed with a beautiful daughter.
- 3.Last year, I was doing 40 day candy pooja and as it is said that Baba will come in some form to accept it, but somewhere I had a little doubt because it is hard to find Sai Baba in USA (we don’t even have a Sai temple in our whole state).But to my astonishment, our new friends (barely knew them only for 20 days and they are Christians) gifted me a wonderful Sai Baba photo with many Sai images on it, and their 4 year old daughter ate a bit of the Prasad, I offered to Baba. So Baba came in the form of that child.
- 4.We were saved and nearly missed dangerous accidents 4 times in the same month and I am still surprised the way Baba saved us. But I know I should be thankful to Baba for helping our whole family still I miss my father and believe that if he would have been alive, we would not have been through these tough phase. But then Baba is our father and He is taking care of me and my family. Loss of loved one's cannot be replaced, but Baba is blessing and protecting us and guiding us, letting us know that He is our father, who is taking care. Baba, keep Your blessing hand on us and all Your children always.
