Highlights of this post:
rush. I stood in queue and Pujari ji gave me Prasad. I was looking at one white Marble Statue of a God with His head covered with scarf. That was my first experience with Baba's Darshan. It was so strange feeling for me. Then the journey started with Him without knowing who He was, and it continued till now.
I would like to share my latest experience that happened on Diwali evening. That evening around 4 pm my neighbour asked me suddenly about going to Baba Mandir. I just reached my hometown that morning after a long journey. My legs were aching very badly. I thought she was referring to Baba temple in other village. Though i wanted but my condition was not allowing me to go. I apologized her for my inability. Then after i decorated my home with Diyas, Me and my children thought of going to my mother in law's house. I called up an auto and requested him to take us there. I told him a clear route, but the route he took ended right in front of Baba's Temple. I was so shocked and had goose bumps. I told him to stop there as some Bhajan was going on. We went in and offered our prayers and sat for a minute. When we were coming out evening Aarti started. We just stood near window and prayed and then we left that place. After i sat, i just could not control my emotions. Somehow i was feeling guilty inside that i rejected my neighbour’s request. But Baba understood what all pain i was going through. Thanks Baba Ji! You are ultimate Teacher and a Parent for me.
On 30th October 2014, i had been to Sai Temple at one village named Katakam Gudem. On this day, there was happened to be Annadhan and Bhiksha for Swamis. Bhajans were going on. Around 12 noon, the organisers called us for Madhayana Aarti. They gave us Aarti books to sing Aarti. I knew Aarti by heart, though i miss some lines. I was singing along with the group and turning pages. To my luck and surprise, i saw last page with all the details of Sai Satvan Manjari written by Dasaganu Maharaj translated by Sri. Prabhakarao garu retired officer in irrigation dept. All his details were mentioned on that page. It was a true blessing and a miracle of Baba! Because, when i could not keep up my promise with Baba, i requested Him to suggest some alternative and He showed me Satvan Manjari. Then i decided to distribute 108 copies of it. But i have no idea where i will get those books. I thought they are available at Shirdi only. But to my surprise, i got this blessing in His Sannidhi as the translator of this book lives in Hyderabad. In His Sannidhi, i touched His Padukas plate by thinking of my daughter. It started moving very fast and i was so shocked. It seems it moves fast if it is a Baba blessing or else it will not. Then i thought something more crucial for me at that moment, it started moving fast till half round, then moved slowly to complete the full circle. I thought i got His blessing. That day was truly a memorable and miraculous day in my life. Thanks Baba. I have no words to express my gratitude to You Baba.
star birthday (Monday), i went to Sai Temple to see evening Aarti. I sat opposite to Baba and saw the Aarti. I thanked Baba to give me this life, beautiful parents, sisters and all. I prayed Baba that i should feel some miracles on my birthday. I prayed that I should get some memorable or precious gift on my birthday. Because every year, i get gifts like dress, sceneries, teddy bear, gold jewels etc from my parents, sisters & my friends. On Monday, my parents gave me Bangles and then i did not get any gift on my star birthday.
Then on my Date birthday (Wednesday), i woke up at 8:00 am. My parents wished me, but my sister did not wish me. She went to office at 7:00 am, not even seeing me. Then i got many birthday wishes through phones but i did not get any gift till 10:00 am morning. I forgot what I prayed to Baba and the day was going. At 10.15, i got a message from my sister that she had a meeting so she went soon and told me to see under my table for a surprise. Under the table, there was a big yellow bag, my dad took and gave me. Then me, dad and mom sat and opened the bag. In that there were 2 Bangles, lavender colour teddy bear (which i like most), key chain, some books, make up kit. I liked everything. Then the bag was empty. I thought only these things were in the bag and kept behind me. My Dad said something more is there in that bag. I said, bag is empty. My Dad took the empty bag once again and put his hand inside and took something. Me and mom asked what it is but he did not say anything, just smiled and gave me. All of my surprise, it was a Baba Photo and Udi packet. My Dad said Baba will be always with You Child. Then I realized, i got Baba as my precious gift on my birthday. I thanked Baba.
On Wednesday evening, i planned to go to Baba’s Temple, but my sister said, why are you going? You went on Monday also and you also go on every Thursdays. From my home, its 45 minutes distance from Baba’s Temple. That day was raining also. But i did not listen to her and went to Temple and saw evening Aarti. When the Aarti was going on, I started crying and thanked Baba for all. Then on Thursday, due to some reason, i could not go to Temple. For that only my Sai called me on Wednesday, i think so. Thanks Baba for helping me.
foolish me, never understood His signs.
Another instance, I was very stubborn since last few days that I want to feel Baba. I want to feel His miraculous Hand on me. I was doing my regular Parayan and reading chapter 40 how Baba reached in a form of Photo to Hemadpant’s house on the occasion of Holi. To my surprise same time I got a parcel from my friend in which I got Baba's Photo. Isn't it Baba's miracle to reach me on the same time when I am reading similar story of Hemadpant. Om Sai Ram. Another instance, When I went to India, I met many doctors there and got many medicines. After reaching US, I realized I lost one prescription. Unfortunately I couldn't find it. I searched every bit and piece of my house. My 10 days search was all in vain. My husband started searching very keenly. The worst part was I didn't remember the medicine dosage and my health was deteriorating gradually. One night while we were in search, I just turned to Baba's Photo and said 'Baba if You are there, miracle should happen. I should get my prescription right now. Meanwhile my husband entered closet and he found some paper on the floor as he opened that paper he was stunned and I got goose bumps after seeing that prescription. It's not that I haven't searched closet but the way it was found was not less than any miracle. Om Sai Ram. All these miracles I felt during my 51 days of Parayan. I bow and pray to Shri Sai Baba to bless all His devotees and request to please pray for my good health. To my conscience there is an eternal supreme power who is always keeping an eye on His devotees. Believe in Sai. Om Sai Ram.
One day, after a year someone created a Facebook page on my name and photo along with very bad photos and comments. I informed all this to my parents and they filed a complaint against him. It was found that along with him some other guy was also involved in that. I even won't know him. I don't know why it all happened, may be because of my past karmas. They removed that photos and we filed a case against them. Even after that, he used to call my parents and said them to remove case. He used to blackmail them that one day your daughter will suffer because of me. After all that, my parents started searching matches for me. I prayed to Baba to search good match for me and if it all happens smoothly, i will post my experience. Now i am happily married and posting this. Now we are facing financial problems. Please pray to Baba for me in getting job and solve my problems. Thanks Baba for everything. I wanted Baba to come to my marriage. After that when we were unwrapping gifts, i found Baba’s Photo as a gift and there was no name on the gift. Thanks Baba for being with me every time and i want You to be with us always. Om Sai Ram.
