Highlights of this post:
life changing problem and have no idea what’s going to happen in near future. But I believe in Baba and have experienced His Leela and blessings a lot. I always wanted to share my experiences too, so finally today is the day. Jai Sai Ram! Thank you so much Hetal Ji to have such a great blog where everyone can write about their experience of Baba’s blessings. I am Sai Devotee since I was a kid. My Aunty took me with her to Sai Temple when I went to her place for vacation. When I bowed at Baba, suddenly red rose fell off from Baba to my head and I felt like He was blessing me. I started visiting Baba on Thursdays to His Temple and prayed Him and took part in evening Aartis. I had many experience of Baba’s blessings in my life. I would like to share few of them to you.
My mum was suffering from fever and she got purple spots all over her body. When we took her to the hospital, she got more complications. As I believed in Baba and it was Thursday, I decided to go to His temple walking without wearing any shoes. I prayed Baba and asked for my mum’s recovery and good health. Slowly, she got better and my faith on Baba increased. I did Nine Guruvar Sai Vrat to thank Baba.
I got PR and came to Australia. I was living with my brother and his family since I migrated. I got to know that they were planning to have second kid but it was not working. They went to many specialist, did many treatments but nothing worked. I prayed Baba and requested Him to bless my brother and sister in law with a child and I will do Nine Guruvar Vrat. Baba never disappoints His devotees. He blessed us with a beautiful angel.
My Brother wanted to buy his own house. He tried to buy it many times but every time some hurdle came and he had to step back. Couple of time he even signed the contract and took us to see the place and next thing we knew is the agent called him back to tell that he sold the house to someone else for no reason. It was very disappointing time frame we all were suffering. I decided to do Nine Guruvar Vrat as soon as we find new place and within a month my brother got a huge dream house with everything he wanted to be in his house. I thanked Baba for His support and blessings on us. I try to visit Baba’s Temple at least once a month and love to do His Aarti. I feel inner peace when I am at Baba’s Temple. Every time I go to Baba’s Temple, I can’t stop tears coming from my eyes.
It was a time for me to get married. I saw few guys and finally ended up saying yes to a guy and got engaged. It was arranged marriage and everything happened so quickly. I was not sure what was happening in my life but I knew that Baba is with me and whatever He would do, would be the best for me. After my engagement I came to Australia and continued my study and work. My fiancé was living in different state. So we got busy in our lives. We met each other few times. Our parents decided our wedding date in few months. Meanwhile here I found out that the guy and I are totally different personality with different morality of living. Later on I found out many bad things about him which any girl would not like to hear about his life partner. I was depressed and lost. I had no idea which step I should take. I was crying badly every single day thinking what’s next in my life. I started doing Nine Guruvar Sai Vrat and requested Baba to show me correct path to follow for my future. I got to know few worse things about the guy and had big argument with him. Instead of accepting his mistakes and apologising, he started finding excuses to make me feel down so that I won’t break up with him. I realised that in future if anything goes wrong, he won’t be supportive but will blame me and make my life miserable.
I had no option left but to break up with him. As everyone knows it’s not at all common for an Indian girl to break up and face society. I am very lucky to have my great family who supported me badly at that time. Thanks Baba for giving me the best family. Before a week of my flight to India, I broke up my wedding. Everything was booked for the wedding, i.e. venue, catering, beauty parlour. My family and I were suffering worse time of our life. I off course had lost my faith on Baba and argued with Him every single day that what wrong deeds I have done that I was suffering badly. As Baba says, everyone has to suffer their karma from past lives. I still kept going to Sai Temple and prayed Baba and surrender myself to Him.
Finally Baba blessed me and heard my prayers. He blessed me with a very caring husband who loves me more than anything and appreciates every single thing I do for him. Whenever I see him, it reminds me Baba’s blessings. My belief on Baba is stronger now. Off course we have to suffer from bad karmas but Baba always bless us with miracles and showers His unconditional love on us. I am very happily married now and enjoy my married life. I have done Nine Guruvar Vrat to thank Baba to bless me loving husband and saving me in the past. Me and my husband’s suffering was not over as yet. After couple of month of our wedding, I lost my mother in law as she died. My husband had visa issue and we were not sure if we could go back to India and perform all the rituals being the only son. Baba again showed His miracle and we could go to India. It was a big miracle that our agent was also shocked to see my husband getting visa to fly to India. We stayed there and perform all the rituals and came back to Australia. Baba has stood up by me in all my difficult phases and supported me a lot. My husband and I did 9 Guruvar Vrat to thank Baba for His miracle and let us see our mother and perform our responsibilities. I often feel sad about suffering in my bad timings but then I feel strong that at least Baba has reduced my pain in every way He could.
We are still suffering visa issue with the immigration for my husband. Everything is grey at the moment. I have no idea what’s next in my life. If he doesn’t get the visa, then our life will be hell as my husband is still not recovered from the depression of losing his mum. He doesn’t have any family member to live with him in India. We both love each other a lot and won’t be able to face separation period. I had suffered enough in the past and don’t won’t to lose him anymore. It will delay our family planning too. We both are depressed and worried. We are praying Baba every single day to take us out from this bad phase of life. I do have faith and trust in Baba. I am sure He worries about us more than we do. If you all pray for us, I am sure Baba will bless us soon. Om Sai Ram. I have learnt from all of my pain and suffering that Baba will do His best to take us out from the pain and suffering. All Baba needs is our dedication and love towards Him. He tests us that how strong our belief and trust on Him. Never lose faith on Him. Om Sai Ram.
Me and my husband got married just a year back. I have been staying in Chennai since 2 years. And since seven months, me and my husband are staying together once he shifted down to Chennai. He works in IT and never wanted to come down to Chennai because of the language and IT atmosphere in Chennai. And as thought, within weeks after shifting to Chennai, problems started coming up. He used to feel very lonely at office as he was the only one from his project in this office. His office timings were from 1 pm to 10 pm because of which we both hardly got some time together. To add to miseries, one fine day out of nowhere a problem occurred with his coding due to which in just 1 week he got expelled out from his project. He had to sit on bench for around 2 months. To be honest, these two months were like hell for both of us. He was getting frustrated but never shared anything with me. I could just understand his emotions. As I am from Government sector, I couldn't understand the terms and policies of his private job because of which I started avoiding asking further questions to him. During these two months, I used to regularly visit Sai Temple and also kept the Nav-Guruvar Vrat. I used to ask questions to Sai Baba everyday and every time Sai used to answer that everything will be fine. Just have patience. I believed in Him and continued my prayers. Every time I used to give deadlines to Sai Baba that oh Baba, please by this date give my husband a new project or else he will be terminated.
On one Wednesday, I read one of the experiences of a Sai Bhakt on this blog having a similar kind of story like mine. The Sai Bhakt had done Sai Parayanam after which her husband got a good job. The very next day i.e. on Thursday I started doing the Parayanam and just within 1 day i.e. on Friday my husband got offer from 2 projects within his company. Tears started rolling down my eyes. Both of us were immensely happy. I thanked Sai Baba again but due to monthly problems, I couldn't continue my Parayanam that week. Everything was going on well after that and the new project had general shift timings so we could spend more time with each other. But 2 weeks back I had gone to Sholapur for an official visit and in the mean time my husband in Chennai got a mail from his manager that the new project couldn't map him and that he has to leave the project with immediate effect. On top of that his HR told him that he has to put down his papers with only 1 month of notice period which means if he doesn't get any project within 1 month he has to leave the company. The moment I got this news my hands started trembling.
The very same day I was returning from Sholapur to Chennai and to my surprise I came to know that the train was coming from Shirdi. An elderly couple was sitting in front of him and we chatted, talking mostly about Sai Baba. I told them about my problems and they gave me Sai's Udi. I was very happy. My mother told me that it's a gift from Sai Baba. That day I asked Sai about my problem and Sai answered that within 10 days, success will come. After coming to my husband, I put Udi on his head and asked him to keep the Udi packet in his wallet. Within no time, he got a call from a project manager stating that there is a vacancy and he can join. I thanked Sai again. Every time, I am in trouble, Sai comes to me in one form or other and helps me. I love Him very much. Sai is great. The new project of my husband has evening and night shifts. I know the coming times will be difficult but it’s better than termination. I sincerely pray my Sai Baba to help my husband in getting a job in much better company with a good pay. He came across a lot of hurdles only because I asked him to come to Chennai. Please Sai Baba, help him and protect him as you protect me. Thanks for coming into my life and being with me in every moment. Om Sai Ram.
sickness. Even I did not have to cancel the trip. Rather it was a successful one by Baba's grace and all of us enjoyed it to our hearts content.
Second experience is related to my wife's comfort. My wife had taken a transfer in her job in the same city where I reside for study. But her office is quite far off and she had to commute a lot. We were thinking of buying a personal vehicle on loan. But there were so many obstacles. Either the loan was getting rejected or the deal was not favourable to us. Even there were problems in documentation. Both of us prayed to Baba for a solution. Baba again showered His blessings while we have got a very good deal and loan was sanctioned. Ultimately, we purchased the vehicle and I could offer a ride to my parents at the time of their stay for the trip as mentioned above. It's all about Baba's grace that removed such obstacles.
Thirdly, I was also a bit anxious about my study. Some part of my studies was not getting complete for some reasons or other. Moreover, I was losing concentration due to other externalities. Again Baba showed the path and due to His blessings that part of my study got completed and was sent to the authority for review. The last experience was just of one day back where my wife and I survived from an accident. We both are safe due to Baba's blessings and our newly bought vehicle was very minimally damaged. It's all about His "Kripa"(blessing) which made everything in place. Please accept my "Pranam"(Prostration). Om Sai Ram.
Laser surgery done for my eyes, since i had eye power around -4. None of my family members supported me in this because they were scared about the surgery. I just prayed to Sai Baba and i was ready to get it done.
On the day of surgery, i woke up at 5'o clock. When i was trying to continue my sleep, i was little worried about my surgery. I prayed Him "Om Sai! Everything should go alright. I hope You will be there always with me and get it done properly. Nothing should go wrong". When i closed my eyes, i saw Sai's face and He mentioned me this "Billing to be issued or to be received". I was so confused because i was not able to relate His statement and my surgery. Since this happened in the middle of my sleep, i totally forgot about it after reaching hospital. Then in hospital after paying the amount they weren't providing bill to us and they said, since you have come from other branch, you should get bill from there only. My dad who is very procedure oriented person started quarreling with them and it became big issue. I was so upset and started crying there. I closed my eyes and prayed to Baba "Why this is happening? Can i do or not. Please give me a sign." Then i remembered about His statement. Immediately, i decided that i will not do it until and unless i get a bill. Then because of His Grace, i got a bill from them and surgery also got it done properly. I am so happy now. Thanks to Sai Baba for being with me and protecting me always. Love You Sai Baba.
upper chest for the last few months. I consulted many doctors starting from Allopathic, Homeopathy and Ayurvedic. Taken medicine prescribed by all doctors, taken the precautions, home remedies etc. At times I used to think that I will die soon. Reason is that the pain used to become more intense day by day. Doctor referred me to do ECG for 3 times. Then they asked me to do the ECHO test. All reports came correct because of my beloved Baba. So it was concluded that it is happening because of Gastric. I took all sorts of medicines with all precautions but it did not come down. I was not able to concentrate and even not able to sleep & work in my daily activities because of this pain.
I had thought in my mind for doing Nav Guruvar Vrat some time back. So I thought that I will do this Pooja. For the Pooja you should keep some request at the Lotus Feet of Baba before starting. I thought of requesting to cure my heart burn & chest pain but later I decided that I will pray for something else. I requested Lord Baba, “Whenever I will pray, the Almighty Lord Baba to listen my prayer”. Before completion of the Nav Guruvar Vrat, Lord Baba gave me and my family so many things that I am really unable to explain in pen. But above all my chest pain & heart burn disappeared like nothing and that to without any medical treatment. I can say it is only a miracle which could not happen without my Lord Baba. My request to my Beloved Baba is to be with me as well as with all His devotees. I have felt His presence, whenever I am in trouble. My request to Lord Baba to forgive the mistakes of His kids and to lighten the path that He wants us to walk. Om Sai Nathaya Namah. Ananta Koti Brahmand Nayak Rajadhi Raj Yogi Raj Param Brahma Sri Sri Sri Sachidanand Sad Guru Sri Sai Nath Maharaj Ki Jai.
