Anonymous Devotee from India says: I am a religious person, but was never a Sai Baba worshiper till the last 2 years. What I wish to share here is how I got introduced to Baba and how my life changed after that day. I live in Delhi and used to pass the huge Sai Baba temple on Lodhi Road quite frequently - but never did I feel like stopping by or going inside. I only knew that I should avoid driving through the road on Thursdays since that road will be crowded and a traffic movement becomes irritably slow.


My professional and personal life was in a real mess. I had loans to repay, no savings and I really didn't know where I would land up if I lost my job at the time when recession hit the world. I badly needed a guide, a god father and maybe a miracle save me from the situation.


This is a time, when I had to go to Agra for some official work. It was a short trip - going in the morning and coming back in the evening - by train. In the evening my colleague posted in Agra offered to drop me to the railway station. My colleague was a friend also and showed me the house that he has purchased and the land he has booked. I had shared with him my story about not doing too well financially and I couldn't afford any property - rather I have so much of loans to repay.

While we were nearing the station we came to know that the train was running behind schedule for a few minutes. My colleague told me let’s not waste time in the station and let me take you to some place which he thinks I should visit. To my surprise I saw that he took to the nearby Sai Baba temple. It was a Thursday - quite crowded, but we had Darshan without any problem. He asked to buy the offerings - but I didn't and I made some excuse. I could see that he was disappointed by this, but I was thinking that at least I have saved Rs 20.00.

Just before I was boarding the train, my colleague told me that I know you wouldn't listen to me but please visit a Sai temple for 5 consecutive Thursdays and you will get the blessings of Baba and that will take care of all your worries. I saw a lot of sincerity in his eyes and decided that okay I will – what is the harm in visiting a temple after all.

The next Thursday I visited the temple - while I stood in the line for Darshan I realized that for some reason I have forgotten all my worries and was experiencing a lot of peace of mind, which I had not experienced before. When it was time to pray to Baba, I realized that I have everything in life - what more can I ask Baba to give me?

Meanwhile I was going through a financial crisis - I needed some cash desperately and had requested for a salary advance. This time I had decided that when I visit Baba, I shall ask Him to give me some money to tide over the difficult times. But again - as I stood in front of Baba the following Thursday - I couldn't ask for anything - again I had the same peace of mind and the feeling of having everything in life.

Next day I heard that my request for salary advance had been turned down and I was shocked to hear this news since that was the only way I could get the cash I so desperately needed. I was in tears and had no one to share my feelings with. It wasn't a Thursday, but I suddenly realized that let me go to Baba where at least I shall get some peace of mind. This time while I was bowing down in front of Baba, I was in tears, but I still couldn't ask for money. I told Him that You are Baba and You know everything and I am happy that I have You to give me some peace of mind whenever I visit Your shrine.

While I was climbing down the stairs of the temple, I could hear an SMS tone on my mobile. But since no one is allowed to use a mobile within the temple premises, I didn't check it - I was sure it was some junk SMS from some advertiser. While I was seated in my car, I checked the message. It was from the Income Tax deptt. I thought my God - is this what is left for me at this time - an inquiry by the IT? But - having read the full message I found that it was to inform me that they have found a pending refund of Rs XXXXX lying with from my previous assessments and the money has been transferred to my Bank account. I checked my bank account immediately and I saw it was true.

This is Baba. He comes to our rescue every time we face any problem. And this was just the first time - numerous such incidents have happened that shows how much Baba loves His devotees. I shall share a few of the experiences in my subsequent posts. Om Sai Ram.

  1. Such a nice experience. Om Sai Ram.. The live telecast from sirdi starts from 4am to 11.15pm right? So just wanted to know, do the temple people play background sai baba music post 11.15pm (When there is no live telecast)?

    3. Wonderful experience! When we really need Baba's help the most, Baba always finds a way to come through for us (just as any loving parent will do). Baba didn't forget about you or your financial needs and although you didn't initially believe in Baba, Baba drew you towards Him and took care of your financial needs. Baba has unlimited ways to help us (His children) through any crisis, so don't think that Baba cannot do something to help us, He can and will do anything and everything to help us in our times of need. Om Sai Ram!

    O Deva, Thank You for looking after us and caring for us as a Mother cares for her child. We are human and sometimes are we desire and demand too much, bless us like a mother does O Sadguru.

    Thank You for all the beautiful miracles and all the Love & Peace O Sai :)

  15. Dear Sai brother ji, Happy to read your post. How amazingly I too feel the same when I bow down at BABA's feet! Really my mind goes so blank that I do not find anything missing that I need BABA to provide for, though , in real life I may be facing several hurdles and think how I would come out of that situation. It is really BABA's Leela to make us experience such emotions, and we should feel lucky that BABA is taking care of our needs whether we seek HIS intervention or not.
    May you be blessed ever and so as other Sai Devotees who are sailing against the river flow.
    Jai Sai RAM.

  16. Hetal ji, sai Ram. Hats off to your wonderful blog. I have a question for you. In this "comment" section, previously I used to get updates regarding responses to the comment section once I had selected "Notify me". but I see that since last several months, I do not get such follow up comments even though I click "Notify me".
    I would appreciate your reply as I have not received solution to my this query in the past. I know you are busy and have to catch up with so many other topics on this blog, this is one more kind request to fix if something is causing "Follow up" link not working as it should.
    Jai Sai RAM.

    1. Happy New Year!

      This notify me functionality is an add on from blogger, the base platform on which this blog is hosted. There must be some error from that end, so i am unable to trace the problem. I request you to please wait till this gets rectified by blogger itself.

      Sorry for inconvenience caused.
