Sai Sister Manisha Ji from India says: Hi Hetal Ji, thanks a ton for your efforts to maintain this blog so beautifully. Many devotees like me can remain close to Baba everyday by subscribing to this blog and because of the service you are doing for souls like us. My post is going to be a long one please bear with me as these small incidents that happened recently have given bliss to me and I feel blessed and I wish other Sai devotees should also get something out of this. My name is Manisha and I work for an IT company in Mumbai in 1-10:30 shifts, so It takes almost 2 hrs in cab for reaching home at night. I will use dates to link my continuous experiences with Sai.

Sai Accepted Me Through This Site

I and my boy friend had some arguments on Friday (Jan 25th) and so I was not feeling good. Saturday went in the same mood. On Sunday (Jan 27th), my family members went to visit a marriage. They asked me several times, but I did not accompany them and was alone at home. I had downloaded few Sai songs (Lata Mangeshkar and from Album:Sai Ki Deewani) through a website shared by you Hetal di. I had bath and I don’t know why by this time I played Sai Songs in my mobile and kept it on loudspeaker. I felt good. I was working for another organization till 12th March, 2012 (I had subscribed for the mails in Jan or Feb 2012) and had read all the mails from this site regularly till that day (March 12th). But suddenly after coming to Mumbai (my hometown after switching the job from Pune), I lost contact with Sai and had many unread mails so I decided to read them all that Sunday.


I was unaware that I had almost 200 unread mails. I started reading at around 4:30 p.m. and kept reading for more than 5 hours. I started feeling bliss and faith in Sai grew stronger. I read more than 50 mails and while going through one of the mail, I saw the photo of Sai in the form I was looking and searching everywhere on the roads every night from cab. I had told Sai that I am feeling very lonely. I want You to accept me and I will consider that I have been accepted only if I see that particular photo of yours. I used to look for it every night while returning in cab, but that Sunday while reading devotees experiences, I saw that photo. I just casually looked at the photo and started reading. But suddenly after sometime, I realized that it was the same photo for which I have been looking since days. I was expecting it to be seen while traveling (as usually we come across many Sai photos). But Baba came and blessed me in my home itself. When I realized I got goose bumps and was then satisfied that I have been accepted and blessed. After reading for 5 hours, I felt exhausted and stopped reading, but the unread mails are still there.

Yellow Pedha In Return For The Yellow Rose

I had planned Shirdi Visit on Saturday 2nd Feb with my boy friend, but we had not booked the tickets and had thought we will book it in Tatkal. As Tatkal tickets get booked only a day prior to the day of journey, he tried booking on Friday morning. But the IRCTC server did not respond. He tried from his office in Pune. I visit Baba’s temple daily as the pickup point of my cab is just in front of Baba’s temple. That Friday (Feb 1st ), when I went to temple I got a pedha. Actually this temple got renovated and they had kept Yagya on Thurs (Jan 31st). Many couples had come. I guessed that they will perform Sai Vrat pooja. Baba had so many flowers around Him and looked very beautiful. It was my 3rd Vrat (9 Thursday Vrat). I offered Him a Yellow flower and wanted to click a picture, but I was not sure whether I should click or not. So after praying, I just left and seeing all the preparations for the Yagya. I wished if I would have been able to be there, but it was a working day and my cab comes in front of the temple at 11:40.

I usually reach there early (around 11:10) and after going to temple I wait for the cab. When I was waiting, I felt I should go and click a picture as I had never seen Baba decorated with so many flowers. I went in again it’s a small temple, only 2-3 people can stand there. And this time, when I went there, there were around 5-6 people. I thought I won’t be able to click the picture, but I got some nice pictures of Baba (posted). I was happy that I clicked the picture. Returning to Friday (Feb 1st), when I went to the temple, flowers were still there around Baba and I offered white rose and clicked few more pictures as the temple was empty. When I was about to leave after praying, the person, who usually takes care of the temple, gave Prasad and holy water asked me “Prasad liya” as I had taken it myself that day as he was busy with some other work.

He just came on time, when I had turned to leave the temple. I answered in affirmative. Then he said “Yeh le”, it was a yellow pedha with a piece of pista on it. I felt special after getting it, but I felt more special and blessed, when I saw him throw the empty box on the side of road when I was just getting down from the steps. Then I realized this was the only pedha left and someone might have offered the box yesterday as there was Yagya and lunch. I had wished to be there for that Yagya, but Baba did fulfill my wish by giving me the only pedha. I felt as if it was kept in that box just for me. That box was also kept till morning with only one pedha. The person who takes care could have removed the pedha and kept in in the dish, where Prasad is kept and could have thrown away the box. But only while writing this post, I realized that the box was also retained as if Baba wanted to tell me “See I have kept this pedha for you. You could not be there in yesterday’s pooja, but you wished to be there and so I have fulfilled your wish by keeping this only pedha for you and I have blessed you and accepted you. Don’t have any doubts now”.

Had that person not thrown out the box in front of me, I would have never realized how Baba blessed me. I wished to jump with joy as I felt so special. I was so happy that tears flowed down my cheeks. I called my mom and told her about it and also told I ate half pedha and have kept half for all of you. I boarded the cab, still I couldn’t forget what all happened in those 2 minutes. I cried and felt blessed. My boy friend called and said that the site is not working and he was not able to book the tickets and will try after some time. I told him what happened in the temple and also told him that Baba will make sure that at least 2 tickets remain, so that we can book or at least 1 as we would reach Shirdi in 5-6 hrs. He called me at 12 noon, when I was in cab that we got the tickets and I felt so happy.

Shirdi Trip

As we got the tickets for Shirdi for Feb 2nd Saturday (10:30 p.m.), I started packing the things on Sat. Through questions and answers site, Baba had once told me to distribute white sweet. In the evening, I went out, bought a coconut and white pedhas to offer in Shirdi. When I came home, my Sister asked to remove 2 pedhas and offer it in house only first. I did that. Then I packed my stuff and left for Shirdi. Train journey was a smooth one. We reached Shirdi at 4 am, got fresh, bought Prasad and stood in the queue at 5:45 am. I was wearing green. A thought just casually rose in my mind that I am wearing green and I wish that Baba too wears green and even if He doesn’t, I will be fine as it was not a strong wish that He should wear green. When we entered the first hall, I had preliminary Darshan of Baba on TV and Baba was dressed in green. Then after reaching the main hall, when we had reached very close to Baba, our line did not move at all. I saw the time and we had very nice Darshan of Baba for 5 minutes. Usually we do not get Darshan for 5 minutes. And I felt so fortunate as when we had visited Shirdi last year, we couldn’t get proper Darshan and I was not satisfied. But this time I was very much satisfied.

I gave coconut. He touched it with Samadhi and gave it with bundle of roses then again. I gave the sweet box, which was open, and he removed few pedhas (twice) and kept them on Samadhi border (the silver one). My joy knew no bounds as before leaving the house, I was confused how to offer the box. Then my mom had suggested that if he keeps the whole box let him keep. If he consecrates and gives it back, accept it. I wanted that He should take out few pedhas, but I was thinking (and usually seen during live Darshan) that they don’t even consecrate it properly. Will he get time to remove some pedhas, but yes he removed, not once but twice. I was really happy and very much satisfied with this visit. We had our Darshan in less than an hour.

We waited till noon Aarti, bought books, calendar Baba’s idol. And after the Aarti, we went to prasadayala, had Baba’s Prasad and I left for Mumbai and my boy friend left for Pune. I was fully satisfied with this shirdi trip.

It was my boy friend’s birthday on 6th Feb. Almost every day, I see the online Dhoop Aarti and that day I just told Baba that Baba he is going to meet me today and he will be wearing blue. And I wish even You wear blue today and bless him. The moment, I opened online Darshan site, Baba was dressed in a blue dress. I felt so happy and took the snapshot of Baba in blue dress and also told him how Baba blessed him. We both were very happy. Thanks everyone for bearing with me and I apologize for the long post.

  15. Dear Hetal Di
    OM SAI RAM

    I got to know about Shri Sai Satcharitra through your site.As i was not able to find any source from where i could get one for me. i ordered one through one site which provides books to devotees and got an email from sevice admins which i presumed as an acceptance of my request email.
    But i havnt recieved it yet.By Baba grace fotunately i got one from a girl i just met few days back.But its in hindi and i have to return it back to her.BY BABA grace i have completed one weekly parayana.i am from lucknow if u can suggest any place from where i can get Shri Sai Satcharitra or if u can help me with the request email.I am continously reading ur blog since one and a half month and had a chance to visit shirdi for the first time in march..i am going through a very rough phase in my life and hetal ji to be very honest plan for shirdi trip was not my idea as i never use to worship Sai..As i told u i was going thru a very bad phase one of my uncle who was going to shirdi with his family suggested me to come along.from there my relationship with sai started..i am still in deep pain but when i read ur blog i hope that one day BABA may also listen to me and show his miracle...today by chance i read ur post in which u have narrated ur experiences with SAi..YOU are indeed a blessed child of SAI..please pray on my behalf that he blesses me too..i am waiting for his miracle..

  21. Very nice experiences! If we go to Shirdi or any other Baba temple, Baba always gives us something unique to show us that He hears and sees us and is always with us no matter what we face in life. Baba gave you some nice experiences both in Shirdi and also with the yellow pedha at the other Baba temple. Om Sai Ram!

  23. Dear All,

    I want to share something that I feel miraculous that has happened in my life only because of our Beloved Baba. I was friends with a gal who was very very close to me. She was my best friend and she used to take care of me in every way. I used to love her so much that I never gave her any space and I started doubting her love towards me. I was very possessive about her. This went on for about 1 and half years. She couldn't take it anymore and called it quits. She began hating me. Things fell apart for me. The pain tore me completely as I never expected this coming from her. I thought she will be there for me come what may. It was disastrous and I couldn't handle the pain. I was in my engineering then. I would see her daily but couldn't do anything about it. I tried convincing her but she never trusted me as I had broken promises several times before. I was depressed, dejected etc. I began hating myself and guiltiness started setting in. I came to do my MS in usa but the pain in my heart did not go. I always wanted her badly. And to top this all, I never found a gal like her. All the people I came across were jealous, rude and bad. I knew nobody would replace her in life. I always used to question Baba that why is she not coming back to me? Am changed now and I want her back and I would never hurt her again. I was repenting for what all I had done but I would never see a change in her. She never wanted me again in her life. I pleaded and begged Baba badly. I would always go to Q&A site and put the same question. This continued for about 3 years and I had no peace of mind because I knew I had committed a sin and the punishment am getting is what I deserve. Everyday I think of my best friend and cry. Daily I used to pray to Baba to change her perception about me. Trust me, I used to do this daily. I was gifted Baba's idol this year on my birthday. It got delivered a week after my bday. I was very glad and thought something good is gonna happen to me. After about an hour I got a call from one of my friends saying that my best friend doesn't have any ill feeling towards me and she was infact enquiring about me all by herself. When my other friend told me this, my happiness knew no bounds. Tears started rolling as I knew what I had gone through.. All those 3 years of pain, sorrow had come to an end. 2 days ago I mustered up all the courage and texted her and she replied me. Phew! It was like a celebration to me. The burden in my heart vanished in seconds. I got back the person I lost in my life. Someone who would never change her mind without Baba's intervention. She said she would never ever see my face again in her life and I had seen the hatred she had in her eyes against me. Now the impossible has become possible only because of our Baba. I know it took 3 long years but the story has a happy ending. Be patient and trust Baba and surrender completely. He can making everything possible.. Baba is responsible for all the happiness I have today.

    2. Dear Brother,

      I recentely got married and I have had same experince as you have with my beloved wife.I know that I made the mistakes to her( all due to misunderstandings of the family members of both side).
      Now I have been crying like nothing infront of baba each and every day for last three months to bring my wife back in my life.Beccause for me ,no one can replace her in my life at all.
      I badly need her as soon as possible in my life as I couldn't concentarte on anythin. I have even tried calling her, sending mails and sending SMS but no response from her side.

      But I belevie in BABA becuase my BABA will bring her back in my life to make me happy for ever.

      So please brother , I kindly request you to pray for me if you have some mins.
