Highlights of this post:
house wife. I struggled a lot after coming to Australia. I came here as a student. I had to pay my school fee, rent bills etc. By God's grace I got a job and managed to do that. At that time I was not much inclined to Baba though I used to love Him and like Him a lot. When i was in India, I used to fight with others to watch Sai Baba's serial “Sabka Malik Ek”. I don't know, but I always have some softness towards Baba. I used to cry watching that serial.
When I applied visa to come here, there was some issue with my medical and it took long time of one year to get my visa. Thus my agent's assistant, whose fee was 10000 Rs, called me and said I can come and get my passport as my visa is sanctioned, but he demanded for 20,000 Rs as he had to do lots of paper work and it took his lot of time. This incident is of 2007. We didn't have any money at that time because I was sitting at home and doing nothing from one year. Only my dad was the bread earner and we were 5 members of family living in a rented house and no extra income. My younger sister was studying in college and we had to pay her fee as she was in a private college. We went to my agent’s office and took only 10,000 Rs as we don't have extra money and we also need some money to pay for the ticket and some shopping. On the way, when me and my mother were in the rickshaw, I saw Sai Baba's Photo or Temple, i can’t remember exactly and I prayed that please he should not ask for extra money.
We reached there and waited at reception. I was continuously praying. My agent called us in. Me and my mother sat down in front of him. His assistant was also there who asked 10000 Rs extra. I saw Sai Baba's Photo in his office just behind him. I was so happy and prayed once again. He asked me to go to the reception to take my passport. I took my passport and came back in his room, where my mom was sitting. I gave him 10,000 Rs. He took it and didn't say a single word. His assistant said but I have asked for more, but he didn't pay any attention to him and we came out. I was so happy. Thank You Baba for listening to my prayers. I have more experiences to share. I will share as per Baba's wish.
I am requesting all the Sai devotees, Hetal ji and her team to pray for me. I am 35 years old now and not married. My both young sisters are getting married to their boyfriends soon. Baba has blessed them. I was in love with someone who left me saying that his parents rejected me because I am too old to give birth to a child. I waited for him for nearly 8 years and all those years I have been praying to God to bless me to be his wife. Now at this age I don't know what to do. I feel like I am closed in an empty room and there is no way to go out. I feel so alone, rejected, cheated and shattered. Please Baba listen to my prayers. Please devotees, i need your blessings and prayers. Please pray for me. Sai Reham Nazar Karna Bacho Ka Paalan Karna. Om Sai Ram. Darshan, I was just praying Baba to show me some miracle to be happened before I leave the Samadhi hall. I was in the queue and was continuously chanting for a good Darshan. I entered the main hall and tears filled in my eyes when i got the full Darshan. There was a heavy crowd and I kept moving towards Baba still praying for some miracle to happen. I was into the narrow iron bars on to the left and came to the middle of the hall and giving flowers to the priest (I got them back from him).
The crowd was pulling me back when suddenly a lady volunteer stopped me. She spoke to me in Telugu (our mother tongue is Telugu), and ask "Are you from Hyderabad?” I replied saying "No, I am from Bangalore". She just said "Ok, come with me" and took me to the side on the right side and somewhat near to Baba. She asked me to sit there for a while. I was sitting there clueless and waited for a word from her. She made me sit there for around 45 minutes and was doing her duty. Whenever she saw me she signaled me to wait. She came back with handful of Prasadam (sweets and flowers) which was offered to Sai Baba and handed over to me. She asked me to do a Sashtanga Namasakar to Baba and asked me "if I am happy now and the thing i was praying for has been fulfilled" and said live happily. I had no words to express. I could not believe what has happened. How did she know that I was praying for a miracle. Tears were flowing from my eyes. I thanked Sai Baba and left the hall with heart full of joy and happiness. Sai Baba lives within us and around us. Jai Sai Ram. stomach. The first day I managed it without any medicines. But that night I couldn't sleep and had fever and chills as I couldn't bare the pain. It was very painful. The next day I went to the doctor. The pain was very severe but it was on one specific point, the right side of stomach. Doctor touched my stomach. I shouted and cried in pain. He said that it looks mostly like appendicitis. I was very much worried that it will need an operation. He wanted me to have an ultrasound to confirm it 100%. I went to the scan room and worshiped to Sai Ram that it should not be appendicitis and I don't need an operation. As the radiologist touched my stomach at right side, I shouted and cried. He again said that it's mostly appendicitis. I was much worried. But I kept on praying to Baba. I prayed Him to do a miracle. To my great surprise the ultrasound report said that it's not appendices and everything looks normal. I was very happy. It was a miracle by Sai Ram. Then as i went home, gradually the pain started to diminish and as I reached my home, I was pain free. It was a surprise that Baba made a severe to a zero pain. I am taking 9 weeks Sai Vrat from this Thursday. Thanks to Sai Ram and His wonderful miracle. eternally remain indebted to our Sai Maa. If i am alive today and living this new life it’s because of our beloved Sai Maa. Baba is everything to me, my Father, Mother, Brother, Sister, Friend, Philosopher, Guru, Guide, Everything. My life starts, revolves and ends with Sai. "Know Sai-Know Life, No Sai-No Life". Special thanks to Hetal ji and team for rendering such selfless service-you all are indeed Baba's chosen one. This blog is modern day Satcharitra and Hetal ji our modern Hemadpant. Thanks a million ton to you all.
To begin with, I was in a relationship with a guy. I was truly madly deeply in love with him. He hails from Jammu and I am from Mumbai. We were in the same engineering college. I had mentioned in my earlier post that how the guy whom I loved like anything left me because he was apprehensive that his family may not approve our relationship. He finished his 5th Semester exams in Dec 2013 and after that he went to his home town and then he broke-up with me, saying that there is no future for us. I was all broken, shattered and depressed. At that point of time, I was all alone. But then starts super duper miracles of our merciful Sai Maa. Baba entered in my life in late January-around 20 January 2013. I felt some bond existing between me and my Sai Maa. I had been going through hell like excruciating pain for those many days. But Baba relived me from pain each time, either by blessing me with His Darshan in form of Pictures or guiding me through this page. I just can't imagine my life without this page and Baba. I owe everything to my beloved Sai Maa and this miraculous blog.
As i mentioned, he broke up with me in Dec 2013. After that I was very hurt and depressed. Then I came across "Miraculous Things Like- 9 Guruvar Vrat, Shree Sai Satcharitra Parayan etc". With Baba's blessings and grace, I started 9 Guruvar Vrat but i determined that I will do Guruvar Vrat till the end of my life. Also, initially I started writing Baba’s name 108 times daily but unfortunately once the college begun then sometimes i missed it but as and when i get time i try to do it. It gives me immense peace. I prayed to Baba, please bring him back. I will do "Shree Sai Satcharitra Parayan on regular basis". Prior to that, I have been reading the holy magical miraculous Shree Sai Satcharitra". Remember-in chapter 27 Baba has described the efficacy of the holy book-Vishnu-Sahasranaam to Shama (Madhavrao Deshpande ji). I felt through that chapter Baba is giving me some hint. The hint was the efficacy of the holy book Sai Satcharitra and that time onwards i realised that there's just one remedy which can cure any kind of pain and that is "The Holy Shree Sai Satcharitra". Friends have complete faith and devotion-Baba is sure to bless us all. After all we are His children and He is our Kind Mother. I even use to read "Shree Sainath Stavan Manjari- I copied it from internet".
I prayed to Baba-Baba You made lamps burn with oil and water, You blessed blind with eyes, lame with legs, dumb with speech, You always loved everyone equally, You brought Mr. Sapatnekar's lost son back to his wife's womb, similarly Baba please bring my lost love back to my life. I had even taken up a vow that i will not eat rice till the time all problems related gets resolved, but unfortunately the vow got broken in between. I asked for forgiveness to our merciful Baba and I asked Baba is He angry with me or no? I got answers that Baba Is Not Angry With Me. Still Deep In Heart I Feel Guilty And Sorry But Then I remember the story of Mr. Pundalikrao (Shree Sai Satcharitra-Chapter 50). So i surrendered myself with all body and soul at Baba's Lotus Feet. I asked Baba many times through the question answer site and Baba always gave positive replies. On so many occasions I got answers to my questions through this blog where other fellow devotees got back their lost love with Baba's blessings. Thus 10 months elapsed and still there was no sign from my guy. Suddenly towards the end of October, i started feeling all the more painful and depressed. Especially in the last week of October, his birthday was around the corner. It was on 5 November. So I was praying Baba from the bottom of my heart and that time my condition was also very bad. I use to cry like anything asking Baba to relieve me from this pain.
Then on 1st November 2014, around 10 p.m. I was staring at Baba's Picture in our shrine and thinking of Him then lo! I got a call from him. He asked me to meet him up on 2nd November. Now see the wonderful Leela of Baba. According to Muhurat his birthday falls on 2nd November. So we met on that day after 10 months. Also we met on 5th November, which is his birthday according to Calendar. Baba's Leelas are inscrutable, beyond the knowledge of human mind. Friends I would like to say, these things are already mentioned in the holy book of Shree Sai Satcharitra, but again I would like to mention here that carve out this thing in your heart and mind" Our Sai pervades everything and everything starts and ends with Him so just surrender yourself wholeheartedly at Baba's Feet then see how He rescue's you from each and every problem. Baba is so merciful that He always gives us more than what we ask for. All these materialistic things are ephemeral. They will end sooner or later, but Baba is the only Truth the only reality. Just Love, Trust and serve Him- that’s the way of life. Rest things will be taken care of.
Thanks a million ton my Sai Maa-for bringing my love, life back. Thanks a million ton my beloved Sai Maa for gifting me this new life. No matter how much ever I thank You, it just cannot be enough for Baba You have showered so much unconditional unbounded love on me and my family. I wish I could take out my heart and place it at Your Lotus Feet, but even that cannot be sufficient because this heart, soul, life, everything already belongs to You Baba. How can we speak of offering something which already belongs to You my Sai Maa. Before I conclude, I would like to say, just trust and trust like anything and have faith in Our Sai Maa and in the efficacy of the holy book-"Shree Sai Satcharitra". I had promised Baba i will share His Leelas with all fellow devotees with His blessings and grace, once everything is sorted out, also I Got To Light 9 Lamps in Baba’s Temple, which I will do with Baba's blessings and grace as without Baba's blessings and grace nothing can ever be accomplished. Love a lot My Sai Maa. Love You so very much and thanks a million ton my Sai Maa! All I can say is Koti Koti Naman. Thanks A million ton my Sai Maa. I love You so very much my Sai Maa. Always shower Your love, blessings and grace on each one of us.

Loka Samata Sukhino Bhavantu-Om Shanti Shanti Shanti. desire took birth in my heart to share my experience with you all by Baba's Grace. There are so many experience of our Sai Baba. I am not an old Devotee of Baba. Baba took me in His folds few years back only.
It was Thursday, I used to read Vrat Katha stories on every Thursday without keeping fast out of my love for Baba. Around 4:00 pm my mother told me that she is going to someone's house, there they have Bhajan Sandhya. They Invited me. I said okay Mom. My Mom went to attend the program. I was alone at home. I am new to this city and colony as i was in hostel when my Father shifted to this city. After completing my B.tech, i came to home. Time had passed, around 5:45 pm, A saint came. I was inside. He was saying "Daughter! Lord Shiva will bless you, Daughter!" Something more i didn't understand. First thought came in my mind is, today is Thursday why saint is asking for Dakshina taking lord Shiva name (i worship Lord Shiva before Sai Baba every time) and thought Why has he came on this time. Who come on this time and he was continuously saying. "Daughter" I was wondering why is he continuously saying Daughter as Saints usually say Sister. My mind was flooded with innumerable thoughts. I said to myself, He must be some young Man. Why don't they do some job. I was alone at home too, so i didn't open the door. He was still there. Then my mind clicked after 10 minutes, He must be our Sai Baba. I joined my hands and said Baba if it is You then please wait till my papa comes, as You know girls cannot trust anyone now days and will give You Dakshina according to my Papa's wish.
Time has come when my father came from office. He sat there for around 20 minutes, Papa came Home, i opened the door. He asked papa 5 Rs saying, you do job, you can easily give five Rs. Papa said, Baba! Take flour, which is more beneficial. He said as your wish, i am just asking for Five Rs. I wanted to give him 10 Rs. I went inside, Searched for the biggest bowl, filled it tight with wheat flour and came outside, I looked at Baba's Face. Oh My God! The first thought came in my mind is He is Sai Baba. I saw He had a very old Bag with Him. He opened it the way i could clearly see the every corners of the bag. There i saw a tin pot. I was wondering where will He keep flour. I don't know from Where He take out a bag (i could easily see every corner of the bag) Unfolded That, The whole bag was empty and sides of the bag was, showing it was for flour only. I was pouring floor very carefully thinking it should not fall down. And He read my mind that second only and said" Don't Worry Daughter! It will not fall down. I was so astonished.
Then He took His bag and Said to my papa "Your daughter will have a very good job" Papa and i was surprised again as seeing girls everybody bless for their marriage and happy family life. How come He know that i want to set my career. Papa according to astrology already knew that. He was surprised too. One more Surprise, He went to that side where there are no home (our home is last) being empty handed and with an empty bag. My mom Came and said she didn't saw the saint in colony too. Next day my mother and father were engaged in some paint work at home. Papa had a bottle of kerosene with him. Papa saw there is something at the bottom of the bottle and thought it must be rubber, Papa emptied the bottle and took that out. Guess What! It was a Five rupee coin. The Saint was Baba only. He gave us the coin! The coin is with me now. One more surprise, He was in orange dress. I love to see Baba in orange. Sai Ram. Ananta Koti Brahmand Nayak Raajadhiraj Yogiraj Parabrahma Shree Sachidanand Sadguru Sai Nath Maharaj Ki Jai! Baba Bless You All.
The other experience is of one of my best and close friend, Baba only introduce me to him when i was in need of one. He went to foreign country to study, but something else happened. A girl put a wrong case on him, for which he suffered a lot. At that time, i prayed to Baba, read Sai Satcharitra, and stopped eating sugar for a whole year, until he was out of that case. Baba helped him a lot, he was really depressed, but Baba took care of him. I was in US, he was in some other country. I prayed to Baba everyday to take care of him, and get him out of this case which he did not do. Baba did make him win the case. He is out of it, that day was the happiest day. I made Peda and went to temple. I was so happy and thanked Baba for everything. Now i thank Him for saving my mom’s life and my friend’s life. But i am going through a bad phase of my life. I just pray to Baba to get me out of this. Please Baba help me, i can't sleep, eat or do anything please help me. I trust You Baba. You are the only one, Who can help me.
