Sai Sister Arthy Ji from UK says:

I am currently working as Manager in a reputed firm in England and I am writing this article to speak of how Baba entered into my life and has been doing miracles since then. I am from Tamil Nadu, brought up in Dubai, now working in England. But Sai Baba dragged me to Him no matter where I was in world.


OM SAI RAM. The way Baba came to my life is quite unique on its own. Baba entered into my life, when I was 21 years in the form of a small black and white photo and He has been guiding me in my every single step in life ever since. The miracles that have been happening in my life through Him can’t be described through words.



I am currently working in UK at a reputed firm, but the journey to how I got here was not an easy path. I was pursuing a course in Aeronautical Engineering at a reputed university in England. My parents had big ambitious dreams for me and they supported me in every step according to my desire placing my interest before theirs. The hit came to our family during my second year of studies. My dad was diagnosed with heart blockages and had to undergo major heart surgery and my family finances went into very bad scenario.

At this time, my grandmom (maternal) gave my mum a small photo of Shirdi Sai Baba and ask my mum to pray for successful operation of my father. That’s how His picture came into our house. I never knew who Baba was or never actually bothered to find out anything about Him. I knew that He was a great saint, who lived in Shirdi and that’s it. In spite of the turmoil my family was going through, I took the initiative to complete my studies on my own. My family at that point couldn’t afford to spend any money for my studies. They sent me away to do my fourth year with burden in their heart and the only thing they could give me was their blessings. I still have the sight of my mum, when she was seeing me off at airport.

When I landed in England and was unpacking my things. To my surprise, I found a small black and white picture of Shirdi Sai Baba in the zip of my suitcase. I asked my mother, if she had placed it and she didn’t. Till date, I have not been able to figure out as to how I got the picture. I was going through hard time and was trying for sponsorship from all sources to complete my education. One day, I decided to find out more about this Baba and typed His name in google. That’s when I started learning about how great He was. I came across the site, which described about 9 Thursday Vrat and how the devotees get blessed cause of this fasting. I decided to myself that I will take 9 Thursday Sai Vrat and I told my family about Baba. The only prayer I had to him was that I needed the courage and strength to complete my studies without any hindrances.

As soon as I started the Vrat, within the first two weeks, I received two big scholarships, which could cover my entire tuition and accommodation fees. I cannot express in words how grateful I was at that point. Every Thursday, during my Vrat for first two weeks, I used to sit in front His picture and be in tears without even realizing it. I felt as if he was sitting in front of me and listening to me. I got a call for my job interview in fifth week of Vrat and by the time I was in 9th week, I had my job offer in hand with my financials covered for my studies. I couldn’t express my joy and I have no words to describe how blessed I felt at that point to get such a saint to guide me in my life.

My family learnt the power of this Mahaatma and how come that we missed to know this saint for so long. But when He entered, He entered like a wave, sweeping away our entire family into devotion with Him. The story doesn’t end here. I went back to Dubai completing my studies and with job offer. My family was so glad to have me back with them after going through so much. Back in Dubai, my sister had just completed her 12th grade exams and was planning to go to UK for her studies. As I had mentioned earlier, my parents always dreamt big and they wanted to treat us both fairly. They could have made my sister study locally, where it would be cheaper. But they wanted to give her the life they gave me. So through great difficulty, we managed to get the finance sorted to send her to England. But the back fall came, when my sister didn’t get the required grades to get into good university and I personally didn’t want to send her to less reputed university.

But due to the stubbornness of my sister and mum, they decided to send her to a less reputed university and by Baba grace, she also got admission in that university and visa was arranged for the trip as well. I, my mother and sister were going to travel back to England together. Since I was returning back to England as an employee now, I made a new application for my visa with my documents verified my company lawyer. To everyone surprise, my mum and sister got their visa and mine got rejected even though all documents were perfect. We were in big confusion and finally it was decided that my mum and sister leave alone to England and I stay back in Dubai to make a reapplication. This was all part of drama Baba has been playing in our favour, which we realized later on in life.

As soon as my mum and sister landed in England, they were shocked to see the condition of her university and the accommodation for my sister. It was unsafe scenario. The university didn’t even let them inside without paying fees for first term. Since the day, my sister and mother went to university was inauspicious, my mum decided to pay the fees next day. As soon as she went to halls, my mum got really worried about the standard of education my sister would get. She didn’t listen to me, when I said. But Baba played His game to make my mum and sister realize that they made the wrong decision. If Baba had let me travel with them, then my mum and sister, they wouldn’t get the opportunity to experience the wrong decision they made. As it is said many times in Sai Satcharitra, Baba has His unique way of teaching lessons to people.

So my mum decided to bring my sister back to Dubai. We got her into very good British university in Dubai itself and then she has transferred to England for her 2nd year studies and she will complete her studies in England as my parents wished for her. She will not be in England, but she will have degree from one of the most reputed university.

In the mean time, my visa got rejected for second time as well. To whom else do we go kids go crying if life tortures us, it was Baba again? I and my mum took a vow to observe 9 Thursday Vrat to help me get visa and travel back to England. Just after me and my mum finished the first Thursday Vrat, even before, we did our 2nd Thursday, I was on flight to England. This is how Baba showered His blessing on us! My job sends me to different parts of world for 6 months period to get job training. After completing my first 6 months, I was planning to go to Malaysia for my second 6 months and you know where Baba got me? He made me come to Pune for 6 months and stay in His soil. I had an amazing opportunity to visit Shirdi once a month or even twice a month. I still remember the feeling I had, when I stepped into His Dwarakamai. I felt as if I am seeing someone close to me after very long time. I and my mum were there and I was in tears of happiness. I had goose bumps all over me and I couldn’t see anywhere else expect His shining face. My father came down from Dubai for a week and my sister also came down for 3-4 months and all of us had the amazing opportunity to visit Shirdi.

During my first visit, I bought for myself a copy of Sai Satcharitra and have been reading about Him more and more since then. Like it is mentioned there, Baba pulls His devotes to Him from which ever part of world. They are like a sparrow on thread. Even though we were living in some different part of world, Baba blessed us and got us to His feet. I cannot imagine my life without Him now and I am so glad to be blessed by Him.

This is not a story. This is my life and I am writing this so that all of who doubt His presence and think of Him immortal, you are wrong! He is living today and He will always for devotees, who believe in Him. He will make sure you get to Him if you trust in Him completely! His blessing continues till today and I hope and pray that He showers you all with His blessings.

  4. Dear Arthy,

    I am Aparna. I am literally with goose bumps all over me reading up your experience. My first experience has been published on this blog on the 17th of April 2013. My second experience is very similar to yours. I did my MSc in the UK. I hail from a middle class family. Completing my MSc (taught Masters), I was aspiring to sit for a one year research MSc (MRes) in the UK. I have already been to the UK on an educational loan and there was absolutely no help for me to pursue a second masters in the UK. I was offered admission for the MRes program at one of the very top Universities again. But with no financial source, my dad, parents and friends advised me to drop my hope of studying again. Where in my heart and mind were stuck up on this course and I was extremely unable to give up the idea.
    I was crying at the feet of Sai day and night to some how open up the heaven, shower finances and let me go again. It was on a Thursday while I was in Chennai at my aunts' place, Sai came to my rescue. My aunt stays in an apartment. She has recently moved in there and hardly knew any of her neighbours. On that Thursday evening, I was sitting by a pool side watching my cousin swimming. There came an aunty approaching me and handed me a book with Sai picture on it. I was sitting with my aunt by the pool. My aunt had no clue who it was. But my hands automatically grabbed the book from her seeing Sai on it. I got home and then realised it to be the 9 Thursday Sai Vrat book. Until then I was not aware that there is such a Vrat for Sai. With high hopes I started observing the vrat and in the second week of vrat I got the scholarship offer to cover up my entire tuition fee expenses. All along, my family friend gifted me Sai Satcharitra on my birthday. I completed the book in a week. In the fourth week of my vrat, my bank offered me some extra funds to meet up my living expenses. Behold, I got my visa on the 9th week of my vrat. The next Thursday I left India to the UK.
    I believe in Sai. He is bigger than our problems. I blindly ran after Sai. I must mention, I offered food and dresses frequently to orphanages. I enormously started following the teachings of Sai. In every principle of his that I follow, I found immense peace from it. I will definitely say; if Sai be not there for me, I wouldn't have been gone for the second time. Through out the process, I felt his presence and blessings.
    I should also admit that I have been in trauma for months, wondered if Sai exists. But I have got things only when I wholeheartedly looked up on him. The rest of the times, He has tested my patience a lot. Things have never come in my way so easily. All he requires are complete devotion and patience. He is to shower blessings, even changing fate of one if a person could keep up Shradda and Saburi. Ain't this right?

    All the very best for your future. May your sister do well at her studies. I hope your dad is good at his health too. My sincere prayers for your family. Sai is there!

    Om Sai Ram!

    Aparna.

    2. Dear Aparna and Arthy ji, WOw...is not a good enough word to show my surprize and yes, I truly believe in what you say, as (Aparna:) "He has tested my patience a lot. Things have never come in my way so easily. All he requires are complete devotion and patience. He is to shower blessings, even changing fate of one if a person could keep up Shradda and Saburi. "
      And (Arthy :)" Baba pulls His devotes to Him from which ever part of world. They are like a sparrow on thread. Even though we were living in some different part of world, Baba blessed us and got us to His feet. I cannot imagine my life without Him now and I am so glad to be blessed by Him.,...He is living today and He will always for devotees, who believe in Him. He will make sure you get to Him if you trust in Him completely! "
      I myself have experienced so many incidences just they way you have experienced, out of nowhere the thing would take shape and blessings are showered like a cool rain in very hot summer!
      There is no way one can imagine the turn of sequences taking place other than such Divine intervention! I have posted many of my Blessings events and many more to come, I will post them sooner or later.
      I pray we all remain blessed as ever and may all Devotees get what they want from BABA.
      Jai Sai RAM.

    I am a devotee of Saibaba and just wanted to share my innermost gratitude to Him. Though it has been only a month that i have been praying to Him with love and utmost faith, i have personally seen his blessings in my life which is no less than a miracle for me at this point in time in my life. No one has ever blesses me so dearly and with so much kindness as Baba has. At this point in time, i have no words to express my love and gratitude to Him. All i want is for Him to bless me with his love and protect meall the way in my life. Om Sairam. Please just keep showerin me with your kindness and grace. And fulfill my wish so i am able to live this life with happiness. I also know that there cannot be happiness unless youe blessings are there with me. May Saibaba bless us all. If you pray with faith and love, He will surely take care of you and bring that smile back in your life.
    Om Sairam.
