Attaining The Guru Sai Baba

Sai Brother Jaya Krishna from India says: This is my first major posting in this wonderful website. But since 3 years, I had been a regular listener, reader, and subscriber and written short-replies in this blog. My biggest belief is Devotion (Bhakti)! Only Holy Mercy Sai Baba has imbibed that spirit in me. Lord had taken care of other things without me asking for it. I would like to share in this posting my first exposure and first realization of Sai Baba.

Jaya Sri Sai Krishna! Dear Sai Devotees, Greetings! I surrender to Guru Ji Sri Sai, the privilege of writing in this wonderful blog steered by Hetal ji and others! I would like to share some of my experiences that had fostered my devotion to Lord.

It is commonly heard that we do not choose Gurus but Guru actually selects us. I felt the same in my life. Being blessed to be born in a family who perform temple Pooja’s, right from my childhood and till now in my mid-thirties, I had been continuously conscious to be under God’s presence. But as I grew, by effect of my past karmas and everyday provoking, I had been fluctuating in my consciousness level. I am Blessed with awareness that every major success in my life, since schooling days and till now, are all only due to Holy Mercy & Holy’s own enabling, without which I do not think I would have got or retained them. But consciousness of Guru Ji Sri Sai came quite late to me, only in 2011. Only then, I had my first visit to Sai temple (at All India Sai Samaj Mylapore, Chennai). I had crossed that road innumerable times in 30 years, but not realized the presence of big Sai temple there or Guru Ji Sai Himself.


In 2011, while I was watching TV, in a talk show two persons identified themselves as Sai devotees and exchanged simple greetings. Guru Ji Sai had sparked that idea in me that I should also visit the Sai temple when I get a chance. Sooner, I was in Mylapore for some other purpose, and while near the temple vicinity I got reminded to visit the temple. First time entering in a Sai Baba temple, I was bit clueless about the temple, queue and even the worshipping procedure. But after the first visit, the gravity of devotion for Sai grew enormously without any efforts by me. Sooner day by day, I was discovering that many people and many things of my earlier life had been orchestrated by Guru Ji Sai Himself and my recognition of Sai was merely a milestone for me but not an introduction to Guru ji Sai. For instance, our house owner of my childhood house, my elder sister, in-laws of my younger sister, my Uncles, etc. are all had been Sai devotees. Even simple things in my earlier life like my photo studio, bike service station, etc. had been with the name of Sai. On discovering all these things dating backwards, my gravity really grew higher. So I discovered that Guru Ji Sai Baba had selected me right from my birth, but I realize that fact only in my mid-thirties!

Sooner, with little efforts, my wife and child also became Sai devotees. Throughout my life there are numerous things where Sai had blessed on me and my family, even before we knew about those particular things; both on earthly matters and spiritual matters. It is hard to put them all, but with this posting, I would like to highlight the foremost thing - - Lord Sri Sai Krishna’s liberality (soushilyam) and down to earth personality (kalyanam gunam). Through me, some good things had had happened and I also had done some mistakes; but nevertheless Lord Sri Sai had always manifested through His devotees throughout their life. We are subject to vagaries of everyday life and still there are different pain points, but Guru Ji Sai is rowing us past all these difficulties, carrying us in His Shoulders. He ensures our devotion (Bhakti) and contentment are undeterred by those vagaries. My prayer always is, all Baba’s children shall ever-ascend on their Sai Bhakti; thereby flourish in their earthly life and spiritual life. Long Live (Pallaandu) Sri Sai Bhakti! Bow to Sri Sai, Peace be to all! Jaya Krishna

Require Your Prayers

Anonymous Devotee from India says: Hello all. I wanted you all to pray for my heart pricking problem. I am that sort of a person who had experienced all troubles because of the word money since my childhood. Since my dad's business was not so good, we had no development in our family. Many times this money thing had crushed my heart badly. Now even our relatives look bad at us since we do not have money. The thing is that we have properties. But it doesn't get sold since a long time. If it gets sold, then I could start my business as to improve the standard of my family and raise our heads in front of my relatives. I am praying Baba for this since a long time. All of you please pray for me. Om Sai Ram I am worshipping Sai since two years. I haven't asked Him for anything other than good health of my family. But now I have a problem which is pricking me every second. I need to get a part of my land sold for starting my business. It had been almost 6 months and still we didn't get a buyer for it. I am praying Sai for this land to get sold. This is immensely going to change my life. I have never cheated, hurt, or wished bad to anybody. But why is Sai not responding to me? I have always wished to help everyone around me. But I couldn't because of my poor economic standard right now. I wanted an answer from Sai on when will my worries get over. Om Sai Ram

Om Sai Ram-Baba Saved My Mother

Sai Brother Mandira from India says: "Om Sai Ram" I am from Odisha. I want to share my experience with
you all. That day on 2012, I still remembered what our family condition was. I have a small family my mother, father, elder brother & me. On 2011 December, suddenly my mom health was going through serious condition. We consulted doctors, but doctors couldn't identify the disease. After one month passed away but my mom’s health was not good. After several checkups, another doctor told to us that my mom was suffering through bladder cancer. Oh god that day was really bad day for our family. On 12th Jan 2012, after operation everyone was saying that her condition is not good might be she will die soon. But i had full faith on Sai Baba, i knew that He will definitely do miracle and really heartily thanks to Sai Baba. He really saved my mom's life. After chemo therapy now my mom is all fine. Two years have already passed away she is fine. I don’t need anything. Sai Baba please do bless my mom always. This is the miracle I will never ever forget in my life. Thank You Sai Baba."Om Sai Ram

  6. Hello devotees,
    I'm asking Baba for a job for the last 8 years. But I don't know why Baba is testing me like this. I was always sticking to sraddha and saburi...but was not able to melt Baba's heart. Can anyone help me out what's wrong with my devotion towards my Guru Sai Baba.
    Thank you

    1. You surely have lots of patience. Have you been doing the nine week vrat? Is it the case you need to upskill via course or some practical training? By now you should know what the employers are saying you're missing. Use this feedback to improve your self.

    2. Many thanks for your feedback. I am trying to improve my skills,but as you know I need to put some fake experience to be considered for any role for which I'm not dare enough. But without any experience I'm not even receiving interview calls. I don't know how to handle this situation. Om Sai Ram

  13. Second devotee, have patience. At least you have property. Many people are left without property and pennyless. Don't expect Sai to bless all the time. We have to suffer sometimes because of past karmas. Sai knows what to gives us when to bless us. I can understand money problems. I am also suffering from poor economic status. I have written my condition several times in the comment section. I am now 8 months pregnant and don't have money for regular checkup. I can't eat healthy food because I am poor. My husband is facing lots of discrimination and insults because he is not even middle class. Our relatives don't even consider we exist because we don't have money. I am very much worried about my delivery expenses and expenses thereafter. People have directly asked me why I became pregnant. They ask when we don't have proper food how can I going to take care of the new member. But I often tell myself whatever happens is because of Sai. So Sai will take care future things also. So devotee, please have patience and faith. Sai has made us travel this far in life. He will also help us complete our life's journey.

    3. Dear Little sister,
      D,ont worry about money,its keeps being ON/OFF in life very often.after my marriage we faced severe financial crisis & no one helped us as it was a love marriage.My in laws took great advantage of my hubby,s simplicity & looted us.My in laws never respected us just because we were financially weak.Due to such circumstances we decided to plan for baby later listening to this so called relatives,people advice.
      Now after 8 years we both are well settled (abroad) BUT suffering for baby.I underwent IVF ,one of the most painful procedure of conceiving but it too failed.Now the same relatives,people are scolding us for not planning baby earlier,good joke na. The only thing I wanted to convey to u is "NEVER EVER bother for this people" as their comments,respect will keep on changing as per time/situation.The most important thing in life is your life partner & kids.You are lucky to have both ma,money is secondary not 1st. Please enjoyyyyyyyyyyyyy your pregnancy,what if u cant eat raisins,almonds,u can eat groundnuts :-).Always try to see life positive side da.
