Sai's Grace On My Life

Anonymous Devotee from India says: Firstly, I would like to thank Sai Baba Miracles page and the admin, for giving us such a wonderful platform to share our experiences. These experiences increase the love and devotion towards my Sai. My best wishes. I am a humble devotee of Sai Baba, and He came into my life through my better half, who is Sai's greatest gift to me.

My beloved Sai Baba has done many Leelas, but I would like to share a few here. Once I was suffering from knee swelling which I usually get once in a while. The previous time when I got this, it was very tough for me and I had to take complete rest for more than 2 weeks with severe pain. During the second time when i got the pain as well as the swelling, I prayed to Baba that it should not last long. Suddenly i felt the urge to apply Udi on the knee. Wonder. My pain vanished completely without any medication, and till date I haven't got the pain or swelling again. To my surprise, I was not aware till that time that Baba's Udi is a great medicine, it was Baba Who showed me the miracles His Udi could do. Similar was the case when I was suffering from mouth ulcer. Nowadays, I hardly take any medicine, why would I when Baba has gifted us with the beautiful medicine called Udi.


Baba Reminded me about my forgotten prayers: I once prayed Baba that I would donate some amount towards the Annadhan Fund in the Sai Temple that I visit every Thursday, also I wanted to offer a garland to my beloved Sai. Somehow, due to some financially critical situations I was not able to donate the amount as well as offer garland. Even though I felt really bad about it, I thought the time is yet to come. Slowly I forgot about the two, even as I pray and speak to Him daily. But Baba has His own ways of reminding us. Once I was in a confused state and not able to arrive at a proper decision, as Baba is my only saviour, I decided to ask Him through the question and answer site. My merciful Baba reminded me of the forgotten things through His answer which is as follows "You have forgotten your prayers and offerings in the past. Fulfil your duties and things will start going smooth. Have faith in Sai" I was into tears, and felt guilty for not carrying out my duties. I also felt Baba's kindness towards me. He never punished me for anything but till date, He reminds me of forgotten things, keeps me aware of wrong doings. At present, I am praying Baba for an important phase of my life. I completely believe Him that He will take care of me and my better half, and do the needful to get us married soon. We strongly believe in Him and He never leaves His devotees. Om Sai Ram

Baba's Grace And Blessing Helped To Get A Job

Anonymous Devotee from USA says: Hello Hetal ji and team, I feel very fortunate to be associated with you through your site, as I think that connecting with Baba's devotees is like directly being in Baba's presence. May Baba bless you immensely for all the noble work that you are doing. I am writing my experience which has been long due.

In Feb 2012, I got a consulting position for 1 yr in a good company by His grace and blessings. Then it was extended for 6 more months after which there would not be an extension, which was the company policy. My contract was to get over in Aug '12. At that time, I was on H1B visa, so I had to make sure that I was continuously working. I was planning to look for new positions in June/July that year. But inwardly, I wished to continue in the same place that I was working since the environment was good and I was used to the work there. The only way to continue there was possible if I were offered a permanent position, but there was no talk of it. I was a bit dejected. Luckily, in Apr '12, my husband's EAD got approved and I too converted to EAD. My job hunt continued in the meantime. One thing that I want to mention here is that the company that I was working for did not do sponsorship, so getting EAD at the right time was helpful.

I attended a couple of interviews and got selected for one. That made me feels quite safe. Now, look at Baba's play. He made the current company offer me a full time position and I was so elated because there would not be any visa issues since I had EAD and it was also what I wanted. The interview process was very easy but the background checks took a while. Though I got the offer, I still had doubts and negative thoughts assail me. I used to think, what if this doesn't go through? What if an issue comes up? Thinking this way, I did not give up the other consulting offer that I got since I wanted to keep it in case something wrong happened with my permanent job process. So I gave my 2 week notice in the current company and was schedule to join the new position after my notice period. All this time, in the back of my mind I kept thinking that how nice it would be if all the formalities for the permanent position got completed before my notice period. That way, I don't have to go to the new company. In the meantime, I had a change of mind and decided to stick with the current one, no matter how long it took and so I rejected the new offer with the other company which was for a consulting position. In those few weeks, I was a bit apprehensive but ultimately, by Baba's grace, everything went well and I finally joined in the 2nd week of Sep '12.

Anonymous Devotee from India says: Om Sai Ram. I am a strong believer of Sai Baba. I try to spread all the true stories of Sai Baba and all the information of Baba.

Om Sai Ram. I will share this story in a short way but will try to cover the important points. My parents were really worried about finding the right match for me. Since two years my family was busy in this, but did not find a good match. I could not see them getting tensed. I prayed to Baba to solve this problem. After a few days a relative suggested a proposal and we were invited at the guy's place. I had asked Baba to give me some signals and that if i find more than 2-3 Sai Baba Photo's in the guy's house i will proceed. The guy and his family both were nice. I was given a chance to talk to that guy and found him nice and decent and i was shocked to see Baba's 3 Pictures in a 2bhk house and not only that but his dad was sharing a lot of experiences he had about Sai Baba and how important Sai Baba Udi is. I was so relieved that day. I followed the signals and said yes. I am very happily married. Om Sai Ram

  1. The Infinite Grace

    (Shri Sai Leela July 1985)

    I grew up in my aunt’s house in a village since I was 2 years old. There I used to watch my niece perform Aarti with a child’s curiosity. When she reached 16 she was married. Her first delivery was a difficult one. In villages in those only the barber’s wife did the mid-wifery and she said that my niece has to be taken to Hospital as her acute labour pains continued unabated. The nearest town was 6 miles away and the available conveyance was by bullock-cart and the road was bumpy, uneven and katcha. Not a recommendable proposition. So all were worried. Meantime hearing our conversation, amidst her labour pains, she said that Baba will protect her. So saying she cried aloud “Baba, Baba, Baba”. At the doorway of the room where she was lying, there appeared a hand in abhaya mudra and soon after she delivered a baby without any difficulty. This happened in 1939 on an evening at about 6.45. That was my first conscious introduction to Baba’s leelas. Later in the company of my mother, who used to observe a vow on Thursdays and perform Aarti, my faith in the Almighty was developed and sealed.

    I used to write songs in praise of the Lord whenever I was in distress and sing them. I have composed so far more than 4000 songs. I was and I am worshipping Balaji of Tirupathi, our family diety and also Lord Subrahmanya, Goddess Mahalakshmi and Rajarajeswari Devi. I observe a vow on Saturdays and Krithiga days. I have Baba’s photo in my pooja room. A day before Krithiga I used to have dream when a big cobra used to come and dance on my chest. This was just a reminder to me that the next day was Krithiga, the day of Lord Subrahmanya. I started my Saturday vow when I was in an acute difficult situation. I took a vow that I will write 108 songs - one each day - on Lord Balaji and my troubles must be over before I complete 108. Graciously enough my trouble was over soon after.

    Once I was virtually on death-bed because of severe jaundice. I was then just 32 years old with a young wife and two kids. I left hope of my life as the doctors numbered my days. My people were all weeping by my bed-side when my old main servant came and said to my wife, “Take a vow to deposit your mangala-sutra in Balaji’s Hundi, if he became alright”. Hearing this, I gathered all my feeble strength and shouted at her stating that I have no more belief in Balaji, who could not help my recovery. At this the maid servant became unconscious suddenly and Balaji possed her and said “Dear child I have been protecting you from long (instances were quoted here). Why do you lose confidence in me now? You will be cured by a doctor who will come today from south. Apologise for your words”. My maid servant did not know any of the incidents in my life; but she quoted them all correct. Later the doctor came as prophesied, cured me and I bear witness to this

  2. When I was in India I used to attend bhajans on Thursdays. I went to Mbeya in Tanzania and there I used to conduct bhajans on Monday in temple and Thursdays in my house regularly. Recently in Oman I had occasion to meet one gentleman named Saibaba whose office is next to mine. When he was introduced to me I nearly picked up a quarrel with him questioning how he can have his name as “Saibaba”. Now he is a very good friend of mine and he took me to Dr.Homi Kaikobad’s house, where I was since then attending Sai Satsangh and Aarti regularly.

    A couple of months back I had a dream. I was on the last step of a staircase in a Railway station. An old lady in mid - 50’s was sitting in a wheel-chair. She was wearing a red saree, red blouse, red kumkum, and her jewels were shining most radiantly. Next to her an old man, in torn clothes, was also standing with a rickshaw who asked me, “My son, tell me where you want to go? I will take you. This lady also follows me in her wheel-chair”. I was then worried about my job opportunities and was praying to Goddess Rajarajeshwari and Baba to show me a right place. The result was the dream. It was a symbolic assurance of help which I got quickly later! I always get answers in my dreams, and my dreams come true.

    I am a Tamil Brahmin and Civil Engineer. My family is in Madras. I am 50 years old now and have one son and 4 daughters. Three of them are married all within a range of 45 days. It is all His grace. I always find His hand and guidance and feel His presence in everything. I do not see any difference between Lord Venkateshwara (Venkusa?) and Shirdi Baba. I don’t know why but Dr. Homi took a special liking for me and I am grateful to him. He was the leading light in Sai devotion in Muscat. I am nothing when compared to his revelations. He is utterly a Sai diwana with Sai perpetually on his lips and in his heart. He always had an irresistible urge to meet the echoes of his inner call. Answering this call, one day he suddenly left Muscat, God knows where, without a word to anybody, in search of the Greater Self, throwing away a flourishing practice, his many-sided popularity, his ever-widening circle of friends and well-wishers. I am sure he left to find a place of solitude in some unknown and obscure corner of the world where, without any disturbance from devotees or patients, he can pursue this spiritual urge which became a magnificent obsession for him. But the imprint that he left in Muscat is too deep to be erased or forgotten. We miss him like the Gopis of Vrindavana in the absence of their Krishna, the Eternal Flute Player.

  5. Babaji, I have been your devotee for over 8 months. In these months I have gone through many ups and down. In every painful moment I tried to find your blessing. In every happy moment I thanked ypu for being with me. Again, I came to the worst phase and still I held on to you thinking this is what you want for me. But at the same time I have lost my strength to take any more. I asked you to end my life. I was so much close to it but you didn't let it happen as I believe everything happens with your blessing. Today is the first time I am upset with you. My marriage broke and my husband left me, i stayed strong. He broke his promise and started doing wrong things, I stayed strong. You helped me stop those things and bring him back into my life and gave happiness back I thanked you although we were not back together just meeting up. Then you showed me that he broke his promise again and I was devastated I stayed strong while holding on to you. Now I m done. These 9 months of my life has been too much painful. I still love you as my guru and god but now I wanted to give up on my life but you stooped that. Today I am upset with you. One by one all my happiness got snatched but I still saw your blessing in them, but now please let me give up. I have no strength. You know all my life whatever good and bad that has happened, I took it with smile. I always believed that whatever God does, he does it for our wellbeing. But now babaji your daughter is seriously upset with you. I very impatient but tried to hold on to you with faith and patience even though I faltered various times. Today I don't want to talk to you but at the same you are my everything so first time writing this down. I know what everyone is going to say and I know that too but you are the only one who knows my pain. So today babaji, I am not going to talk to you. I am mad at you. I am hurt. I am done with this pain.

    1. Hi,
      I read your post, looks like you are going through lot of pain in your personal life. These are our past bad karmas. This will be there for a while please put up with it.
      At this moment I remember a saying of Sai Baba from Sai Satcharita " You must bear the fruit-good or bad- of your past actions; if it is incomplete, suicide won't help you. You have to take anouther birth and suffer again; so instead of killing yourself, why not suffer for sometime and finish up the fruit of your past deeds and be done with it once and for all?"

    2. Dear Devotee, Hope Baba Bless all your wishes. Patience is the key in life, sister. If Husband cheats you, is it something you can't do anything for. You cannot control all the things and it is not the end of the life, if he breaks his promise. You can control only the things which you are responsible for. Try to be patient, go and explore new palces with your friends or family , which might give you relief .

  8. A Short Biography of Shree Swami Samarth
    *****Feed Sesamum and Sugar*****
    In Kashi201 there was a famous scholar and astrologer named Bahireshastri.
    After worshipping Lord Dattatrey, he got a son. He named him ‘Datta’. When they
    prepared his horoscope it showed his life span as only fourteen years. Both, husband
    and wife became very anxious. They apprised a saint about this matter in Benaras
    (Varanasi). He advised Bahireshastri to approach Sri Swami Samarth, the incarnation of
    Lord Dattatrey in Akkalkot.
    Bahireshastri along with his wife and son came to Akkalkot and started rendering
    service to Sri Swamiji. At that time, Sri Swamiji was sitting in Khasbaug. One day,
    Bahireshastri’s son suddenly started shivering and fell down unconscious. Sri Swamiji
    asked Bahireshastri to bring Sesamum (an oilseed). Hearing the word ‘sesamum’,
    Shastriji became nervous and prostrated at the feet of Sri Swamiji and started crying.
    Sri Swamiji spoke “Oh! Why do you become nervous? Feed your son with sesamum and
    sugar”. Bahireshastri put sesamum and sugar in his son’s mouth and his son got up. Sri
    Swamiji snatched Bahireshastri’s son from the jaws of death and returned him to his
    parents. After rendering service for few days, Shastri and his wife returned to Banaras
    with great joy.

    *****His Marriage Still To Be Carried Out*****
    Cholappa, the devotee and attendant of Sri Swamiji, had two sons and one
    daughter. His daughter was named Rajoobai and the two sons as Krishnappa and Appa.
    When Rajoobai grew up she got married but within just a few days she died due to
    Tuberculosis. The sacred –thread ceremony of Krishnappa was performed but within
    fifteen days he died due Cholera. The family started mourning. By that time, Sri
    Swamiji arrived at the scene. He spoke “You fools, why do you cry? The marriage of
    Krishnappa is yet to be performed”. Then Sri Swamiji went near Krishnappa and started
    saying “Oh! Neelkanth (Krishnappa) wake up. At least you speak two words with me”.
    Hearing the words of Sri Swamiji there was some movement in the dead body and he
    woke up and sat. All the people present there were stunned and they started
    continuous shouts of victory in the praise of Sri Swami Samarth. By the kind grace of
    Sri Swamiji, Krishnappa grew up and eventually got married.

    My response to a sister aged 33 yrs and wanting advice as she is caught with a guy since 8 yrs.

    Sister, do not blindly follow the guy even after knowing his habits. Do not ruin your life and also your parents. This is just the begining of life, choosing the right person determines the rest of life. So, you cannot marry a drug addict. Please accept a good proposal from your parents and be happy. If the guy really liked you and if he is responsible, he wouldnt be catching up had habits.
    Guess Baba wanted me to suggest you, i am so sleepy now but still a strong urge to write and post this.
    Good luck sister.

  24. Om Sai Ram, Family of 6 children with each one having issues.
    I want my brother to get rid of epilepsy problem that he has and I trust that baba will surely cure him and I want to get him married soon which I hope baba will surely fulfill the same.
    My family - mom is old and suffering from fear with less oxygen level and taking nabilizers 3 times a day. My elder brother is a neuro patient and bedridden and has to be taken care. My eldest sister who is unmarried and a heart patient too. My younger sister who is beautiful and unmarried but in a good govt job. My eldest brother who is abroad has his own issues and has never visited India due to some legal constraints. I only plead in baba that he helps this family in all ways as we all believe in Baba.

    Last but not the least, I only pray to Baba everyday and plead his blessings to take care of everyone and help me in all ways so that I can only show love and affection.

    Bow to Shri Sai Jai Sai Ram
