Highlights of this post:
unforgettable experience here. Though i have felt so many miracles, this one is my all time favourite. My parents are not devotees of Sai Baba. They pray Him like any other God. But Sai Maa is everything to me.
We were blessed with a chance to visit Shirdi on 7th Feb 2014. I was following my parents, cousins but somehow a family (approximately 7 members) came in between us and i lost my people in the crowd. My dad turned and signaled me to come. But the gap was filled by 7 members, so i was supposed to stand last in the queue. I was little upset. Suddenly a security woman came to me and asked me to go to the front and form a new line. She held my hand and took me there. I was standing very close to Baba. I literally cried and turned back, my parents were so amazed to see this. Afternoon Aarti started. I cried, cried and cried and felt so happy to stand so close to Baba. Suddenly the security woman gave me milk sweet and smiled. Devotees who stood behind me asked for it, but the security woman told them something in Hindi and asked me to eat the sweet and not to give them. I was confused, she again ordered me to eat. She wiped my tears and signaled me to look at Baba and pray.
After Aarti, the rope was released and i touched Baba's Samadhi and moved forward. There was a plate with Diya (lamp) and flowers. Like everyone, i touched the flame and prayed. Suddenly a big yellow flower fell down. I took it and tried to keep it there again. But, a Swami Ji (Approx 50 years with a red shawl) smiled and told me "Aap Keh Liye" (for you). I looked at him, because i didn't understand. He again repeated the same "Aap Keh Liye". I understood from his gestures and came out with the flower, turned back and thanked the security woman who made my day. This is nothing but Baba's mercy. I felt His presence. My parents were still standing in the queue and i was thinking of Baba's love. Goosebumps! I remember Baba's words: "He who steps here will soon get health and happiness and his sufferings will come to an end". But in my case, it is upside down.
The toughest phase of my life started after my Shirdi trip. I prayed for my love. But we had a serious break up. (I am still waiting for him, i know he loves me more than i do). I am 23 years old female and i have been suffering from PCOD (Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease). Though it is commonly found in 60% females, it is believed that when the cysts are small, nothing to worry about it. When the cysts are large, laparoscopy method is used to puncture those cysts in the ovaries. I still remember the day i was waiting for results. I prayed Sai, but i was diagnosed with PCOD. Fortunately, the cysts are small. But due to PCOD and hormonal imbalance, i started getting pimples and eventually large cystic acne all over my face. They were abnormal and i was afraid that i had cancerous cysts.
I fixed an appointment with a famous dermatologist and everyone in her clinic looked at me with fear. I tried not to cry but failed. I was given acutance heavy dose and it's been 8 months, i don't get pimples. But, i still have some pink marks and more pitted scars all over my face. I scolded Baba for giving me this and started 9 weeks Vrat. I have successfully completed 6 weeks. I am drinking Udi mixed with water. I had 5 sessions for my pitted acne scars, but no improvements. My dermatologist suggested laser treatment but i may get laser burns, so i tried home remedies like lemon juice, Multani Mitti, Aloe Vera, Vitamin E oil, olive oil, nothing worked. Now i have scars, little pink marks, large pores and i literally hate my face. I know, acne marks fade in 3 to 12 months. But scars are always scars. I am 23, but i look like 30+. These scars are ruining my life. I regularly visit this page and read posts. I see devotees struggling with deadly diseases and i know i should be happy with what i have. But, My condition is horrible. Every girl will dream of a cute looking face. But, Baba i don't even want to look cute but i need my good skin back without large pores, deep scars, marks. They have taken my self confidence. I am broken down. People who look at me, ask me why my face is horrible. I feel guilty to look at someone and talk, because they look at my ugly face. I tried to commit suicide. I am facing the consequences of my karma. I am crying for nearly 8 months. I do Pooja and sit in front of Baba's Statue and cry. Whenever i see a girl of my age, i see her face. It hurts when people ask me about my problem. But now it has very few pink marks and more scars. Dear brothers and sisters, Kindly pray for me and suggest some natural home remedies to get rid of acne scars. My dear Baba, please, no one should face this problem. Bless everyone. This is my last hope, Remedies and prayers. I am concluding with Tears. Thank you. miracle in my life. I was in relationship with a guy since 2009. But in 2011, he left me because he got job somewhere else, still there was no problem in our relationship. But in 2012, i came to know that he came into a relationship with another girl. When i disclosed the matter before his another girlfriend, he told me that he don't want to keep anymore relation with me and he want to continue with her. But i was very much attached to him. I cried day and night for him. I kept calling and messaging him for 1 month but he did not answer. One month passed.
One day, i was missing him and i wanted to cry loud but there were guest in my house and my parents were too unaware about this matter. I could not share it with them. They are against all this. So i went on terrace and cleaned the area and sat there and burst out loud. Before that, i never believed in God and never bowed my head before any God. I hated people, who believed in God. But that day i felt so helpless. I was crying keeping my head on knees and i was helplessly crying and said "Help me God if You really exist please help". To my surprise, when i took my head on from the knees, i saw a Sai Baba's pendant near me which was not there when i sat there, because i had cleaned it before sitting. I looked here and there but there was no one on terrace. I took the locket and moved down stairs to my home. I went inside my home and sat on sofa, Near to that sofa, there was a drawer. I opened it to keep the locket. Again to my surprise, there was a book kept in drawer of "9 Thursday Sai Vrat". I was once again shocked. I asked my mother about the book. She said, my neighbour aunty had done Udyapan that day and she gave that book. I felt like Sai Baba was telling me to come to Him. My mind changed within 1 day and i told my mother that i will do 9 Thursday Vrat from next Thursday. She too was very surprised, but she supported me and did not enquire the reason. I started my fast.
On fifth Thursday, he called me and apologized and we restarted our relationship till now. Sai Baba is everything to me. He helps everyone. I love You Sai Baba. Sai fulfills every wish. I and my boyfriend are not talking since last 15 days. This incident happened the passed Thursday when i went to nearby Sai Mandir. Since it was Thursday, it was whole rush in the Temple. I went there with my friend. I was missing my boyfriend very badly and tears were in my eyes. While sitting in the Mandir, i said "Sai there are so many people in Your temple today but not the one i want to see". While exiting, i joined my hands and said "Sai i miss him". When we came out, my friend told me that she has some notes with her. She wanted to Xerox them, so she said, you can come with me if you want or i will drop you hostel and then go. I said i will come. While searching for Xerox shop, i saw my boyfriend talking with his friend on roadside. I did not talk to him, but my eyes were full of tears and i thanked Sai Baba. He is great! My boyfriend is still not talking to me but i know with Baba's grace everything will be fine once again. I love You Sai Baba. I believe You more than i do to my breath. Please get everything fine once again Baba. I request Sai devotee to keep Shraddha and Saburi. Baba does great miracles and just asks for 2 things in return "Shraddha" and "Saburi". Can't we give Him that? So just have faith and wait! He is watching His every child. Love You Sai Baba. B.Tech 1st year holidays. I started reading Sai Satcharitra during the holidays, 1 chapter a day as my best friend has been listening to the chapters daily. I fell ill after few days and missed the first week of my classes. Then I had completed the Sai Satcharitra in 1 week. I visited Baba temple as much as i can and made a habit to read the book every year during the semester holidays. It gives me lot of confidence and I feel that Baba had been taking care of everything by being my side. God is in multiple forms and whoever we pray to, the ultimate idea is worship. My mom has been an inspiration to me all along. She worships Santoshi Matha since more than 15 years. She always used to encourage me to be independent and strong. My family has been my great support during all phases of my life.
In this post, I would like to explain about my life experiences which i believe will give some confidence to people who are waiting for the blessings of Baba. Baba has been part of my life. I am a calm going and down to earth person. My family is everything to me. Only with their support I was able to achieve something in my life. Once I completed my B.Tech, I got placed in Software Company and then traveled to US for my onsite project. My opinion of marriage, I personally think that love marriage is the way to go. Love has to come naturally not by force. It cannot be arranged between people. I had faced lot of personal issues after marriage and had regretted my decision to get married. It has turned my life upside down and was never satisfied with my life after marriage. I think a lot questioning myself, why did i get such a life? Why do i have to live with someone who does not love me or care about me? Why am I not as lucky as other couples who enjoy each and every day with their better half? Well, the only answer I reach to is that, fate cannot be changed. Baba has been helping me a lot in going through this phase of my life. Baba has blessed me with the best ever gift on earth, my one and only ray of hope, my son. Baba has given me the strength to handle many worst situations with lot of confidence. Only with His blessings, I am able to continue my life. I owe Him my life and my happiness. Baba has given me one more chance to be happy. I hope everything will be alright. If not, life goes on. Only one thing keeps me going and that is my belief in Baba. I wish good luck to you all! Sarve Jana Sukhino Bhavantu. government jobs. I attended so many exams, but in every exam, i was not securing the eligible marks. I got very disappointed. Every day, i used to cry in front of Baba, why all these are happening to me. In 2013, i decided to go for M.Tech. But I did not attend any entrance exam. When i consulted the colleges for Quota seat, they asked 75,000 Rs, which i was unable to pay. I felt very sad, because it is my mother’s wish to see her daughter as a Post Graduate. I even did not get any job for 1 year. I prayed to Sai Maa to give me a good job.
In May, i attended for M.Tech entrance exam which i missed last year. I did not prepare for the exam. My intention was to just qualify the exam but Saimaa had another plan for me. Here the miracle of Sai Maa happens on the day of exam. My exam was in afternoon session. I and my friend went for the exam. Almost 50,000 students appeared for the exam. While writing the exam, i had severe stomach pain. I did not even see the questions. I just chanted Sai name but stomach pain was very severe. I never experienced that much pain. I don’t know what i had written in the exam duration in 2 hours. Exactly the pain lasted for two hours. After completion of exam, my mother asked me how i wrote the exam, i said, i did not write well because of stomach pain. My mother got disappointed. I also felt unhappy and i was sure that i will not qualify the exam. Finally the result came. My rank was 328 and i got seat in government engineering college. It was a miracle of miracle. It was unbelievable. It’s all because of my Sai Maa. Without Him i am nothing. He is always there with me to guide and protect me. Sorry Sai Maa for posting late. Sai is always there with Sai devotees. He asks only Shradda and Saburi from us. digestion which leads to stomach pain and back pain due to gastritis. But whenever he gets I used to pray to Baba and give His Udi and that will be cured immediately. Not only this, He used to answer my prayer every time. He expects only Faith and Patience from us. I promised Baba before, that I will post this. Please forgive me for delay of my post Baba. Now my family is facing a critical situation that my husband lost his job recently. So Baba please bless him with a good job soon and save us. Om Sai Ram. I will be Your devotee always and try to follow Your principles always.

A lady walked by out of nowhere and yelled by my car window "God has forgiven your sins, He loves you". She said those exact words and then crossed the street. I thought I was just dreaming and asked my son to repeat what she said. He confirmed the exact words I heard. I couldn't believe how Baba fulfilled my wishes through a stranger. That lady was His messenger. This experience strengthened my faith in Baba.
