Sai Sister Preeti Ji from USA says: Hi Hetal Ji, I am Preeti. This was how my journey with Shirdi Saibaba started. I really appreciate your blogs. I have already posted this experience in the January 2011 edition of "SAMARPAN" magazine. But still I would prefer to post the same in your blog as it would be read by millions of devotees. It would help them to increase their devotion. It is believed that “Shirdi Sai pulls His devotees from distance, even without their knowledge, due to the past life connection" and this exactly happened to me.

This one is a real time experience in my life. I wanted to share this experience since long time, but somehow kept postponing. It happened during the year 2004 December 26th, when tsunami hit India. I knew Sai Baba and have heard a lot about Him from my relatives, but I was not involved in doing any kind of prayers till almost January 2005.

Basically I am from Chattisgarh, which is very near to Shirdi. My father was a central government employee and was posted in Andaman & Nicobar islands and was at Port Blair (capital of A&N Islands).He worked as a teacher in different islands from 1975 to 2008 and hence we (sisters & brothers) were brought up in A&N islands. When tsunami struck the islands, except for my parents and brothers, we sisters were in Bangalore. Coming to my experience with Baba it so happened that on 26th Dec 2004 (Sunday) at 4.45 - 5 am.

I had a very peculiar dream (I have the habit of getting up early for doing my prayers since my childhood). I saw myself standing near a very huge water body in a village with many people around me with everyone being tensed and sad. On inquiring, I was told that soon a very huge devil will appear from pond and will kill everyone in and around the village and also that there will be a huge destruction of life and property. On hearing this, I was very sad and started crying thinking of my family (as I've mentioned that I was away from my family). All of a sudden I saw a tall old figure coming from a distance clad in a white dhoti, kurta and turban. He came near me and told in a very assuring tone - Beta don't worry, nothing will happen to your family as I am here to save your family. Soon after this conversation I saw a very huge devilish figure arising from pond, which caused a lot of panic in the area. Immediately I saw Baba in a very angry mood shouting and pointing to the devil asking him not to come into that particular area. The devil obeyed his orders and never approached the area.

I got up with a lot of confusion and fear as people say that dreams seen during early morning hours do come true. I was also trying to recognize the person in my dream. I did my daily routine prayers that morning and then by 8 am I got a call from my sister’s husband about the tragedy that struck A&N islands. I was speechless and shocked to hear. Immediately I started calling my parents, but there was no response (due to tsunami all the phone lines were cut off). I kept trying for nearly 1 hour and at last my mother picked the call and told me that only people of that area were saved miraculously, but still the houses were completely destroyed. The houses were partially submerged in sea water. I would like to pin down some points for reader’s consideration:
  • Only I was able to call my parents and none from the mainland (almost all my relatives, friends tried for more than a week, but with no response).
  • The colony, where my house was situated, is hardly a few meters away from sea, but not even a single person died. We lost many friends in the nearby areas, but my family was saved.
After this tragedy during my evening walk with my friends, I happened to visit a temple in J.P Nagar, Bangalore in the month of Jan-2005. Guess what? I saw the same person in my dream sitting on the throne, none other than Sai Baba. Since then I started believing in Sai Baba and I've been praying Him daily all these years. Sai, bless His devotees. I will post a few of my other experiences sometime soon.

Regards
Preeti

    1. Dear friend
      You will now know that how merciful baba is.the only thing i will tell u is that why do u doubt.
      Dont keep any doubt and then see the miracle.
      We all have our desires but everything has its own time to be fulfilled.

      Just imagine what would happen that if we prayed and we just got that instantly
      We would not enjoy its fruits.that is the reason why sometime we have to wait longer.
      So that we can actualy feel that after being so much of patient we finaly got something
      More beautiful than we ever demanded.

      Dear sister there should not be the word doubt in any SAI MAA 's childs dictionary.
      Completly take that out.i assure you if you know Sai that is due to his will and if he wished you to be his child he will never let you down.iam sure he will be making all the preparations for you.and mark my words that he is a mother of all of us and he plans for us than we even think of ourselves.

      Just give him and yourself time.keep peace in mind.and yes do not doubt.
      Iam sure you will get some blessings very soon.

      Om sai ram

    2. Dear one..

      hey sister i can very well relate to ur position bcoz am going through same mess..am without a job, going through severe health problems, am 30 too and still not married. i am a ardent sai sewak since past seven years and just like in ur case i did everything in my capacity to please our sai maa but none of the above three matters got resolved but still continued with my devotion hoping that sooner or later he will come around and he did. He assured me 3 years back that i will get rid of my health problems but am still struggling with this chronic disease, this however does not mean that baba relinquished me instead it was him only who sent me to the best available doctors on my problem, its the other thing that i got no relief or respite from any of the above but baba has stood there with me holding my hand throughout and he still does..i am not exaggerating in my words or in my thoughts but baba has always been beside me and he has made his presence felt to me through various sources..... just like u i have nearly fought with baba that why isn't he is hearing my prayers and over the time i have repeatedly got only one answer from him "surrender to me and u will get rid of this disease" but may be i havn't surrendered to him with all my heart coz may be this was my destiny. u must be knowing about the saade saati(the shani grah seven year period), i have been going through this saade saati exactly ever since i imbibed this health problem so may be yes our past karmas do play a part in this but now i have stop pestering baba and have submitted myself to him, whatever his decision might be coz honestly i am tired now.. so ill suggest to u is just surrender to him with whole heart and accept whatever his decision might be but never stop offering him pooja and if possible read sai satvan manjari on thursdays and on ekadasi ....hope i havn't bored u..

  4. Oh what a beautiful amazing ecperience .... I m also waiting desperately for our sai to show the miracle of bringing me and my husband together to his adobe .... baba pls bless each and every one so this earth becomes sin less and a place to live in as u had created it.... lots of crime and sin are happening in and around us .... we r not so powerful to fight withbone and all but u can surely create the magic. Sai stay in every sinners heart so they chage themselves and come for refuge in u......... duniya se dil laga k duniya se kya milega .. sai ka naam jap le tujhe aasra milega.... om sai

  8. thi is really really a mesmerising experience.thanx preeti 4 sharing this 2 us.i have got goose bumps on reading this experience of urs.....truly a faith booster!!!may god bless each & every member of this "sai parivar".few dayz back i asked about "can we read sai satcharitra during periods"? i cudn't get a satisfactory ans.Hetal could u pleez ans to my curiosity????many people say that baba was against thi "not touching" rule during periods,as according to him our aatma should be pious,and it's he who chooses his devotees.

    1. Dear friend
      Understand this very carefuly that after periods get over we start developing new blood cells.that means we always have them inside us.it is a cycle and it has to go on.in early period women were not allowd to go to kitchen or touch anything just because at that time women need rest.and people misinterpreted it that way.like many other myths that we indians face.

      The fact remains that we dont get impure or anything like that.it is just that our body and mind are not at rest and are little disturbed during that time.it was also forbidden for women to go to the temple during periods it was because when we go to temple we should go with easy mind so that we can whole heartedly chant lords name but our mind already being so uneasy how we can do that.

      For that reason it was said that let the perioda get over then you may go to temple.
      There is nothing wrong if you are very much comfartable.you may always do pooja and evrything.

      So just free your mind and do whatever you wiish to do at any time for the Lord.he is ever accepting.i dont underatand why people make things complicated.

      And you know all about sai baba ,he is just awesome.will any mother ask her child not to touch her just because she is in periods.no my dear infact she will take care of you.
      So just brush away these misconceptions.

      All is fair in love of SAI MAA..........and now dont keep any doubts......

    2. I have been reading Sai Satcharitra since 1998. I read even during periods but will not sit in the puja room. As said by BABA our mind should be pure.

      Delete
    3. Thanks a lot for asking this curiosity. I was also having the same question in my mind. And in fact in my morning prayer today itself i asked baba whether i may read "Sai Satcharit" during my periods and he show me the way through you.

    4. Well said friend.. its true since we say baba is our mother he doesnt send us away wen we have periods, he is ever loving and he gave me the best experiences wen i had got periods .. i go to temple also if i really feel like seeing baba only if i have excess then i wont go since we tend to get irritated at that time.. so don worry u can read sai satcharita

  13. OM SAI RAM TO ALL

    I WANTED TO ASK SOMETHING, THAT I SAW SOME THING ON THE PHOTO OF OUR SAI BABA THAT WAS POSTED ON 22 AUGUST IN THIS BLOG.
    I SAW THAT THERE WAS SOMETHING SPARKLING ON SAI MAA'S HEAD.
    I NOTICED IT AND SINCE I FOUND IT TO BE DIFFERENT I KISSED ON HIS FOREHEAD.
    BECAUSE I JUST LOVED SEEING IT.

    IT WAS LIKE AS IF SPARKLING STARS ARE ROTATING ON HIS HEAD LIKE SOME CROWN.SO I WANTED TO ASK WHAT WAS THAT AND DID ANYONE ELSE SEE IT.BECAUSE I COULD NOT FIGURE IT OUT IT WAS THERE FOR SAY ABOUT ONE MINUTE.

  15. Amazing experience Preeti Ji! It was truly Baba's grace that your family was saved from the devestating tsunami. Baba showed you in the dream that your family will be okay and not to worry, and Baba delivered your family to safety. Truly it was Baba's blessings that helped saved that group of people from the tsunami. Om Sai Ram!

  22. I got the answer to a question that was roaming in mind.My question was why baba is not doing anything when he knows well my problems and what he is waiting for.And also I was doubting.From the discussion above I regained my faith.Actually during pain, only one thought comes to mind that baba should do something to erase our pain.And when it does not happens asap we get angry and start doubting.It requires little bit of practice or a habit to not doubt baba.Every time I decide to keep hold of my faith but I fail.Simultaneously many problems have started in my life.Which can be solved by only our beloved baba's grace.And I have to wait.Just because of my impatient nature,I am being tensed.It's a great relief today after so many days.Today after reading the blog a true smile and peace that I was missing came to my face and heart.Getting some positive vives.Thank you all.Because all of you helped me.I am sorry baba.Be there with every one when they need you.Show your blessings before some one looses faith in you.
