Sai Helped In Getting My Husband Work Permit ApprovalAnonymous Devotee from India says: Om Sai Ram. I am a small devotee of Sai Baba. Please keep my name and email-id as anonymous. I have known our Beloved Baba since 2009 but was not much attached to Him until recently. Though there is a Sai Mandir at a 5 minutes’ walk able distance, I do not visit very often. I used to visit Him once in a while, but when I stand in front of Him my mind used to go blank, I just gaze at Him and come back without praying Him for anything. Sometimes I think whether I am the only one who is experiencing this.
Now let’s come to my experience, when Baba helped me at the time we needed His help. Me and my husband came to Canada on Work permit which expired on 30th Nov 2013, we had applied for the extension of work permit for which we require a document called LMO, but due to some backlog in the immigration, though we had applied for the LMO 5 months before we didn’t get the LMO approved on time and it was in-progress status. Meanwhile the case worker took up our work permit application since the LMO was in-progress and he rejected out Work permit application. Usually if the LMO is in-progress status they keep it a side and wait for the approval. But may be because of our bad karma in our past life it got rejected and all of a sudden my husband had to stop working from the day we received the mail. We were dumb struck as to what happened and we were asked to travel back to India as the attorneys with whom we (company) were working gave no other option except for traveling back. My husband had worked so hard for this project and he was leading the project now since we had to travel back and his hard work would go in vain and somebody would take the credit sitting in his position.
Then I started praying to Sai Baba as to why all these things are happening and to show some ray of hope. Meanwhile I asked my husband to read the ‘Sai Satcharitra’ within 7 days, initially he was reluctant seeing the number of pages then I convinced him to read and when he started reading I could see he feel more confident each time. He read more stories and he finally finished it within 4 days. Our HR director contacted another attorney to see if there is any other option, he gave us an option that we could go to one of the port of entries to Canada and try and get the work permit. Usually the immigration officer at the port of entry has this special power of giving the work permit on the spot but they don’t use their power very often until they are convinced that this approval is needed due to impacts on the project and the deliverables. Of thousands of people they might approve for just one or two and of which my husband was one. We were so happy. They also interview hours together but for my husband they just took for half an hour and they were convinced and the credit goes to our beloved Sai Baba. It was He, Who inspired us to contact another attorney and get all these done and He was with us every moment assuring us everything will be fine.
From this I learnt that if we have ‘Shradda’ and ‘Saburi’ then Our Sai will for sure come to Our rescue. Now after all these even my husband has started believing in Sai Baba and we are planning to visit Shirdi when we visit India this time. Thanks Baba for being with us and always be with us and all the people who believe in You.
Sai Helps Us In Fulfilling Vrat Conditions
When I began the Vrat, I told myself that on Thursdays, I'll have something very light to eat or drink in the morning, then do the Pooja and skip lunch and not eat or drink anything until I had said my prayers to Him in the evening and then eat dinner, i.e. one meal per day as I had interpreted the Vrat conditions to be. I had also promised myself that I will donate money or food for the poor on Thursdays during this Vrat. I had been fulfilling this for the past 4 weeks. This Thursday, that is today, is the 5th week of my Vrat. After doing Pooja in the morning with love for my beloved Saint, I left for work and stayed there very late in the evening working hard, skipping lunch as usual. On the way back home, I was thinking about work related things and as I felt hungry drove to a drive-in restaurant. As I had had a very long day, I had completely forgotten it was Thursday and that I had not said my evening prayers even mentally before eating dinner. Nor had I made a donation for the day.
As I was waiting behind the cars in the drive-through lane, completely distracted by different thoughts, suddenly I saw a homeless man trying to draw my attention standing next to my car in that very narrow lane. I opened the window and asked him what he wanted. He showed me his palm which had a few pennies and said he did not have any money to buy a meal. I opened my purse mechanically but found that I had absolutely no cash on me. I told him to meet me again after I had gone through the drive-through and I'll get him food. As I was placing the order for him and myself, I suddenly realized it was Thursday and that I had not done two things I was supposed to do for the Vrat - pray to Sai before eating dinner, donate. I was shocked and immediately became convinced that it was Sai's Leela that He had thus staged this to remind me of my promises to Him. I had gone through this and several drive-through restaurants hundreds of times and not a single time had a homeless man approached me for food in a drive-in lane. On a Thursday evening, before I could put a single morsel of food in my mouth without saying the prayers. I thanked Shirdi Sai Baba mentally for so tactfully reminding me of the Vrat conditions, gave the food to homeless person who was waiting at the end of the lane, then said my prayers to Baba mentally and then had a very satisfying dinner. This incident convinced me again, that He will take care of us completely - and guide us in every little step. Why fear when He is there?
Baba Came To Me
Om Sai Ram, Yesterday i got up early to study and then around 11.30 am in the morning, i was feeling very sleepy, so i thought of sleeping for 15 minutes. Usually i put Sai Baba's live Darshan or Sai Baba songs on TV daily. Always i wanted Baba to come and talk with me in dream, but for some reason it has not happened till now, but i have just seen some pictures of Sai in my dream some times. Now back to the experience, yesterday there was no one at home when i planned to sleep, and i slept on the sofa at 11.30 and at 11.45 sharp, i felt someone is waking me up by tapping on my shoulders. I got really scared and got up as there was no one at home and thought who was that who is tapping me. Then i got up and understood that it was Sai, since Sai live Darshan was going on my TV and also i was planning to get up at 11.45 and give the Vrat book to my 2 friends in my same flat. So Baba came and woke me up. I was so happy. I am sure Baba is watching and listening to all my prayers and difficulties i am facing. I am just waiting for things to solve for me, my parents and sister. Have faith and patience and follow Sai's teachings as much as possible and He will take care of everything. Om Sai Ram. I will post my experience when my difficulties get sorted out, which will happen for sure.
