Anonymous Devotee from India says:
I am quite an avid reader of Sai Baba literature and do follow your blog regularly. I am sure you hear it every day Hetal Ji , Rana Ji and Anil Ji that you are doing a fabulous job, I simply echo it. Please keep my name and email id withheld. Like all other devotees, I too have plausibly infinite number of experiences, where Baba made His presence felt. I have made a mere attempt to share some of them in this post. This post wouldn’t have been possible without Sai Baba’s grace.
Sai Satcharitra Can Do WondersTo quote a devotee’s words in this blog, “No words can describe or numbers can quantify Sai Baba’s greatness”. It is on account of this blog that I did come to know about Sai Satcharitra, Shirdi Sai Kasth Nivaran Mantra, Sai Moola Beeja Mantra, Sai Prerna and Sai Nav Guruvar Vrat. It is a delight to the heart to read all of the above said. I try to read Sai Satcharitra everyday and chapter 15 referring to “Cholkar’s Sugarless Tea” is my personal favourite. I did parayan quite many times on account of my personal problem. At the end of each parayan, some facet of my problem would end and I would be filled with such positive thoughts, confidence and peace of mind that I have never felt in my life so far. Curiously enough, I saw Sai in my dreams many times during parayan.
I am pursuing my doctorate and wasn’t getting any lead for the past two years and during one parayan, Baba blessed me. My arena for Ph. D. is Microbiology, to specify, “Thermophilic microorganisms”, the microorganisms that grow at unusually high temperatures. Previous year, I had collected water sample from a hot spring in WB, India to find out such microorganisms, with unsatisfactory results. This time, by Baba’s blessings, I got a chance of visiting Jharkhand, India (300km from where I live) and collecting water from a hot spring. I had the desire for the past two year to visit this hot spring, but somehow couldn’t make it. I did get some lead in my Ph. D. and it is all due to His grace. We don’t have Sai’s temple in our place and had a desire to visit His temple. After I had completed a parayan, all of a sudden I had to go to another state, where there was a Sai temple, which I visited.
Sai Baba Saved UsFew months back, I was traveling with my mother, aunt and some of my acquaintance in a four wheeler. It was dusk, the highway didn’t have too many vehicles. But all of a sudden, a cow came in the middle of the road. Our car hit the cow, the driver trying to avoid the hit, consequently the car landed into a divider in the middle of the road, about 3-4 feet deep. I was pretty sure that the car was going to topple. As if saying my last prayers, I chanted “Om Sai Ram” and believe me the car came to a halt. Furthermore, the divider didn’t have iron posts those are usually present. We were saved by Sai Baba, with minor injuries only. It is noteworthy that it was 9th September, the number 9 is considered to be sacred by Sai devotees and guess the title of that day’s post in this blog Miraculous healing from deathbed - Sai devotee Laxmi. To add, next day my friend said that the evening of my accident, there was some celebration in Shirdi and it was being showcased in many channels on television. It was as if Baba said “How can my devotee be hurt at the time I am being venerated”. Though it is obvious, He protects His devotees at all times. He thus, gave me a new life and nothing seems to be impossible for the saint in saffron.
Prodigious Sai Nav Guruvar VratI did Vrat for my personal problem. Other problems like the selection of my Ph. D. topic, which was not getting finalized for the past two years, did get finalize just after I had started the Vrat. My mother was operated two years back for a cyst in the intestine, and again she had some problems. It was during my Vrat that she visited the doctor, who suggested her another surgery. She got operated and is now recovering. It might seem a mere coincidence, but I believe it was due to divine intervention and the night before the surgery, I saw Sai’s beautiful portrait on television. My problem yet remains pending. I have again started Nav Guruvar Vrat and confident that Sai will shower His blessings upon me soon.
On the first day of my Vrat, 7th March, 2013, Baba gave me an amiable surprise. On the same day, there was to be an annual celebration in Sai Baba’s temple in Jharkhand, India. I don’t live in Jharkhand now, but since I have lived in Jharkhand for the past twenty years, I consider it as my first home. I had been invited by the temple authorities to come for the celebration of the temple, which I couldn’t go. In the evening, I had called up one of the temple authorities to know about the day’s function. He briefed me and said that some Bhajans on Sai Baba would be sung in the evening and I might call him up and that he would keep his phone in a position that the Bhajans were easily audible to me. I thanked him for being so kind. The Bhajans were sung for almost two hours, I kept listening, though the connection got disconnected many a time over the two hours, the call being a STD one. It was around 10’ 0 clock, I was about to disconnect the phone and I heard the voice of the person with whom I am not on talking terms for almost a year and for whom I am doing the present Nav Guruvar Vrat of mine. Dumbfounded! All I can say Sai’s ways are inscrutable and there couldn’t have been a better beginning of my Vrat.
Sai Teri Leela Kabhi Samajh Na Paaun Main,
Tere Charnon Mein Sadaa Shish Jhukaaun Main,
Paani Se Bhi Tune Baba Deep Jalaaye Hain,
Neem Ke Patte Tune Mithe Banaaye Hain,
Teri Mahima Ka Kaise Gungaan Gaaun Main,
Tere Naam Wali Sadaa Jyot Jalaaun Main.
