Highlights of this post:
aura. God has always been kind to me and has given me everything I had wanted all my life. I was studying in US, when I once saw my mother doing Baba ji’s Parayan. I asked her what was it that she was doing, she explained me why and when this is done. For no reason, I made a promise to myself that I will do it someday.
Mine is a love marriage, a south Indian Brahmin girl marrying a Marwari boy. Initially there was resistance from my family but by God's grace it did happen in May 2005. At that time I was reminded about the Parayan vow I had taken. But i couldn't do it. We were a childless couple for a long time. Again by God’s grace (I was doing Siddhi Ganesha Vrat at the time), I eventually got pregnant in Aug 2013 within the first cycle of my IVF treatment. Immediately within a month of pregnancy, complications started. I had severe bleeding due to which I got admitted in a Mumbai hospital on September 2, 2013. For some reason an inner voice prompted me to keep Baba's Satcharitra and question answer book in my bag while I was rushing to hospital. That night I was lying still in hospital thanking God to have saved my pregnancy. Holding Baba ji’s photo, I went off to sleep.
Baba ji gave me a vision that night. I was at Samadhi Mandir with my dear husband and beautiful girl child. I took my child to Baba ji and put her at His feet and prayed to Him to bless her. Baba ji took my child in His arms and blessed her and told me to be rest assured that she will be taken care of. I immediately opened my eyes to find myself in hospital bed. I was confused but then thought whatever be it, Baba ji has promised me and He will keep His promise. I started reading Satcharitra. He did protect me. I went through a very difficult pregnancy and He kept me going. He gave me the will power to fight it out. When I got preterm Labour pains at 31 weeks, I kept reading Satcharitra. I delivered suddenly at 34 weeks. I went through a labour for 8.5 hours and had a normal delivery at 34 weeks. It was a very easy and smooth delivery shocking the whole family. I gave birth to a beautiful daughter who has filled our life with so much of love, happiness and warmth that I forgot all the pain.
Baba ji has kept His word. Even though a preemie, my daughter caught up with kids of her age and today she is a normal 10 months old child. I have kept my promise of reading Satcharitra. I have completed the book 6 times already and i keep re-reading it. He has accepted me as His own and protected my child. We took our daughter to Shirdi suddenly without any planning when she was 4.5 months old. Not once but twice we had Darshan and we could put her at His feet. How fortunate she is to have such an experience. At such a tender age she loves Baba ji. Baba ji’s photo is kept by her bedside. And it’s only that photo she gets attracted to. She wants to grab and kiss it. Such is the Leela of Baba ji. Whom He accepts as His own, He protects. He promised me that He will protect my child and He has kept His promise. Om Sai Ram.
There were many things happening at my family front also. May be it was Baba's wish to let me suffer that and wash away my sins that way and in fact few days back also my marriage was almost on stake as there were few things from my husband's side which were troubling me and i went to my Nani Muma's place where i had grown up and got married. When i was there i kept on praying to Sai Maa that You are my Mother and my world to me so please don't let these problems ruin my marriage and i also asked Baba to bless me with baby so that Me and My Husband could make our bond more strong and after that i came back to my husband's place and we went for blood test and yesterday i.e. 29-12-14 (Tuesday) i got my reports positive that i am carrying a baby. This all happened due Sai Baba's blessings. I told Sai ji to give me this blessing as my New Year and anniversary gift and Baba has fulfilled this wish. Few months back also i felt that i was pregnant and then i had very bad fight with my husband and same day i got my menstrual cycle. I was in tears. But today Baba has given me this blessing and i don't want anything to happen to my child. My urge to my Deva and to all of you my loving Sai Devotees to please bless me and keep my baby safe.
I am worried because i have hormonal problem PCOS due to which i have faced problems in conceiving and even now when i am pregnant i will have to take some injections to avoid Miscarriage as its very common and hurting problem with PCOS patients. Even my husband is worried about me. Baba i am surrendering me to You in the same way i surrendered when i was in Lab for my test and You have never disappoint me. Baba what i only want is Your love and blessings for my baby who is growing in my womb. Please take care of her/him and never let anything bad happen to them. I am ready to face problems but please do not let anything effect my baby/babies. Just keep them healthy and safe in my womb. We will be meeting my doctor on 1st, January, 2015. which is Your day Thursday. Please keep everything alright. I knew when i got Your Udi from Shirdi that it was a blessing and assurance of Yours for my baby. Bless us Sai Maa. You are the only hope and support. Never let us forget You. I am thankful to You because my husband has also started believing in You. Boost his faith Baba only that way he and my in laws will understand the meaning of love and relationship that i have with them. Only that way they realise my value. Please forgive me if have done any mistake. I am sorry Sai Maa. Om Shirdi Vasay Vidhmah Satchitananday Dhimahi Tanno Sai Prachodyat.
Let me start my experience now. I live in California, United States of America. It was December 10th 2014, my second son's 2nd year birthday. There is a Baba Temple near my older son's preschool. So, on 10th December, we decided to go to the temple in the morning, to seek Baba's Darshan and then drop off my first child at his preschool. It was around 8.30 am in the morning when we arrived at the Temple. We saw that the Temple was closed. I was a little upset as we didn't get Baba's Darshan on my baby's birthday. The temple hours were from 6:15 am–7:45 am, 11:45 am–12:30 pm and 6:00-9:30 pm. My husband said that we would come back to the temple in the afternoon after picking up my older child from his school. So, I did my Sashtanga Namasakar from outside and also made my kids do Namasakar from outside. As we were going to leave the Temple, an old man came from the parking lot with the Temple keys and said he would open the Temple for us. My happiness had no bounds! I knew that He was Sakshat Sai Baba Himself. My Baba listened to me! He fulfilled my wishes. He gave us Darshan!
My baby was the most blessed child I would say as I feel that the Temple got opened just for him on his birthday. We had a heart full Darshan of my Baba ji! Baba's Idol looked so peaceful and beautiful. The man (kaka) who opened the Temple door gave us yummy Prasad also. This is the most unforgettable day in our lives. I cannot ask for anything more than this. Baba always listens to His children. All He asks for is pure love. Baba is just like a baby. We have to surrender ourselves completely to Him and leave all our problems at His lotus feet. He will just take care of everything and will give us million folds back. I cannot forget this experience in my life. This was the most auspicious day for our entire family. Both my children, my husband and I are more than fortunate and blessed to get Baba's Darshan on my younger one's special day! Om Sai Ram! Sainath Maha Raj Ki Jai! Akhilanda Koti Brahmand Nayak Rajadhi Raja Yogi Raja Para Brahma Sri Sachidanand Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai.
Another miracle that happened was my family and me went to Tirupathi for Darshan and it was heavily crowded. I have severe problem with my stomach. I don't eat my food properly on time. I will faint or will land up in severe stomach ache and in Tirumala, it always takes minimum 4 hours to have Darshan. I was hungry and was able to feel the pain. I prayed Baba that I should not get pain or faint as if such things happen my entire family's purpose of visit will be spoilt. It took about few hours to have Darshan and miracle happened. There was no sign of pain in my stomach. In my house we have a Baba statue which is a white marble statue. One day all of a sudden to our surprise that statue turned into orange colour in the chest part of Baba and the turban. Baba's miracles have no end. I trust Him fully and have given my life in His hands. He will take care of it and bring me out of all clutches of life. Sainath Maharaja Ki Jai.
I was crying day and night because he had ignored and hurt my feelings. I did not know how I would move on with those heavy feelings. There was no one around me to be shared. Then i left it to Baba. I was lighting lamps and visiting His Temple every day. I thought he would not talk with me at all. To my surprise, with grace of Baba he just texted me after two weeks. I never thought, he would talk within this span of time. He texted me and after that, within two or three days, he was normal with me. Thanks to Sai so much. He solved my problems and united us. Thank You Sai, Thank You so much. Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai. Sai knows still i am in so much of trouble and problem, both health and personal ones. Baba is the only saviour to save my life now. I need Your blessings Sai, please show Your mercy on me and all Your devotees and everyone. You are the merciful father, please don’t be silent. Save us from this and give me life please. Love You Sai.
