Highlights of this post:
refuge in Him much earlier. Maybe Baba waited for my time to come, and blessed me and my family heartily. In the situations I faced there were many times when I felt Baba is trying to tell me something, like to be patient and keep faith. I believed in Baba and kept moving on. I have few more personal incidents to mention, but will share them later. These experiences might be a hope for people facing similar situations. Om Sai Ram
Baba saved our marriage: Baba has helped me a lot in resolving issues with my husband. Due to my husband's constant traveling, we became emotionally apart from each other. There was a time I wanted to get separated from him as I did not want to live alone, especially with a daughter doing all things by myself. After few conflicts, we decided that we will move abroad and settle down. During that time prayers to Baba helped me a lot. He healed my mental state and made me closer to my husband. I read Sai Satcharitra book and realised that my separation from my husband could have been due to some past karma. We started feeling Baba in our life and everything changed so well. We became very close to each other and started going to Baba’s temples together. I thank Baba for saving my marriage. There were days and nights when I cried my heart to Baba that I did not marry to live like this, and I accepted only because He directed me to do so. I left this relation to Baba and He took care of us. Leave all your worries to Baba and see the miracles He does in relationships. But it’s true that He cannot interfere in our karma. Once we are over with the karma phase, Baba's blessings will begin. Till then please be patient and have faith in Him.
Baba helped my husband to get a better job abroad: My husband was a project manager in a reputed company holding a very senior position. One of his colleague was jealous of him and complained to the HR team about project issues. My husband was questioned by the audit team and was terminated one day. It was a shattering moment for him as he was in the peak of his career. The issue was over a dinner bill with the client. My husband was without job for 5 months. We managed to tell everybody in my family that he is on leave initially, but things became worse as they found out later. People started doing strange talks which hurt us most. We believed in Baba and I was always telling my husband that this happened for our good. Or else he would have been sent on another abroad project. For five months he was attending a lot of interviews, but nothing was getting finalised. One day he told me that let's go to Shirdi, and the first offer that comes after that I will take it. We had a lovely Shirdi Darshan and it’s unbelievable that we were on our way to Goa from Shirdi, and my husband had a call from a Belgium company that he has been mailed the offer letter. It was surprising because the company had earlier told my husband that he should take Schengen visa and come to Belgium for a final interview. But it was Baba's blessing after the Shirdi trip that he got the offer. We just trusted Baba blindly for those 5 months and we had a very happy family time too. My husband took everything in good spirits and indeed many several trips with his friends. It was a bad time for us, but with Baba beside us we overcame it happily.
Saw Baba in Belgium: When we moved to Belgium, I was wondering where am I going to see Baba in Belgium? Is it possible? But I was proved wrong. Just a few metres away from our apartment there is a shop with Sathya Sai Baba photo on it. It was a thrilling moment for me when I saw His picture waving towards me. I believe that Baba chooses many forms to stay near His devotees and i am really so happy and blessed that He was here before us to take care of us. Thank You Baba for assuring us that You are around in this new country. Dear devotees, there are times when whatever we planned might go wrong and we become helpless. Many times I felt that Baba was with us but there were many changes going on. But I also felt that Baba is testing us and we were blind in our faith. Please keep faith in Him and have patience.
new developing area. The main road has no street lights, because they are widening the roads. The construction is going on. But it was Sunday. So it was very quiet.
When they reached near our house, they missed our by-road. Therefore my friend’s husband had to take a 'U' turn. When he made a U turn, his car slipped and fell down from the road to the ditch. The car's front side was down and back side was up. It happened just 2 minute away from my house. He came out from the car and called Baba and us for help. Me and my husband drove fast and reached that place within two minute. All the way, I cried loudly and screamed for help. Om Sri Sai Ram, Om Sri Sai Ram, Om Sri Sai Ram. But we can't get down from our car, because of the traffic. I tried to call CAA (for towing). We parked our car to opposite side of the road. But I can see through my window. There was one of the pickup and someone was pulling their car with the rope which was tied up with his pickup and my friend’s car. Oh, my God. Unbelievable! He took my friend's car away from the ditch. By the time I saw, he rolled up the rope and got into the pickup and went away from that site. I was shocked. Nobody was injured. Nothing happened to them.
I asked questioning, what happened? Did you call that guy? My friend’s husband said, I only think Baba for help. On that time one pickup take U turn and asked them "Are you OK guys?" That's it. He did everything for himself. When they were looking for their purse to give something, he had gone. Even they didn't say 'Thank you" to him. Everything finished within 2 to 4 minute. We laughed loudly with tears running down. Saiharan came to my house and was overwhelmed, He was telling my sons, what happened to them and how he came through their car from the ditch. When he saw his mom she was upside down in the car in the backseat, because she slept at backseat without locking the belt in proper way. Om Sri Sai Ram. Whosoever believed in Baba, He is always with them. He is also traveling behind you. Thank You Baba. Om Sri Sai Ram.
His wing, now we both are completely devoted to Sai Baba. Without Him there is nothing in our life. First of all, Thanks for maintaining such a beautiful blog where devotees get to share their experiences and reading them everyday makes our love for Baba stronger and increasing our confidence in Sai Bhagwan.
I would like to share one experience which had happened in my life recently. My wife had completed Sai Nav Guruvar Vrat. We both went to Sai Baba Temple on Thursday 27/11/2014. On that day after having Prasadam of Bhagwan, my wife was doing Namasakar to Sai Baba. She was chanting His name, same time one old man came to her. He gave her a bag of coconut with rose flowers and Sai Baba Udi packet and told her, please have this bag and he will come afterwards. My wife waited for him till half an hour, but he did not come back. Then she told me about this incident. We both searched him around the Temple, but could not able to found. Then I think that He is definitely Sai Bhagawan. Sai has come and gave us full fruit with His blessings. We both were very happy from this incident. Then we take Baba’s Darshan for one more time and came back home. We are doing Pooja of Sai Baba Ji every day. Now I am not in a good situation. We are facing bad time. But I have much more confidence in Sai Baba that He will definitely solve our problem and He has planned good life for us. Om Sainathaya Namaha. Ananta Koti Brahmand Nayak Rajadhi Raja Yogi Raja Parabrahma Sachidanand Samartha Sadguru Shree Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai.
glaucoma. I cried in front of Sai, please the result should be positive and then I will light a Diya in front of Him. That Diya is my faith which I have for Him and you won't believe the result came positive and she is not having glaucoma. Thanks to my Sai Paa. I love Him a lot. Shradha and Saburi is all He want. Jai Sai Ram.
