Highlights of this post:
welfare and there are innumerable instances of the same. However, there is one experience that has left an indelible mark on me and for which I am eternally Grateful to Baba. I would like to share that particular experience with all of you.
In 2013, my mother and I visited my sister in U.S at the time of the delivery of her first baby. My father was to join us in a month’s time. My mother has a certain kind of epilepsy since the past twenty odd years. Whenever she has an episode, she loses consciousness for a few seconds. If she is standing at the time, she loses her balance and falls. We usually take extra care of her when an episode is likely to occur. Coming back to the experience, my sister’s due date had passed and we were waiting for a call from the hospital. They were to inform us of the time at which my sister should get herself admitted so that they could induce labour with medicines. On that particular day, my sister, brother-in-law and I were waiting at home for the hospital’s notification, when suddenly we heard a loud thud. My mother had an episode in the bathroom and she had fallen down. We rushed to the bathroom and saw her unconscious. My mother regained consciousness in a few seconds. However she was having difficulty breathing and her voice sounded raspy. We couldn’t understand what was going on. Within a few minutes, her condition had worsened and she was choking. We looked at her helplessly, feeling numb and unable to understand what to do.
We decided to take her to the emergency room immediately. We called the paramedics and they reached in a few minutes and took over the situation. What happened next is a bit of a blur. The paramedics tried to help my mother breathe, but they were unable to understand what the exact problem was. At this very moment, we got a call that my sister should get herself admitted to the hospital for her delivery. We requested the paramedics to take our mother to the same hospital where my sister’s delivery was scheduled. Praying fervently to Sai Baba we all reached the hospital. While my mother was admitted in the ER, my sister was admitted in the maternity ward. My brother-in-law stayed with my sister while I waited helplessly in the lobby praying hard. While waiting, I read Sai Baba’s Chalisa and Sankat Mochan on my phone. I kept praying to Baba to make everything alright and to protect my mother, sister (Who had endured immense stress in the ninth month of her pregnancy due to this incident) and my sister’s unborn baby. When my sister’s doctor came to know about the stress she had gone through, she decided to postpone her labour induction by a couple of days. The doctor confirmed that the baby was also fine. Then started our wait for some news from the ER.
After a couple of hours, we were informed that several tests and scans had been conducted and it was found that due to my mother’s fall, her neck had suffered an impact due to a collision against some hard object. This in turn had caused an internal swelling in her throat. That was the reason she was unable to breathe, since the swelling was pushing against her windpipe, making her feel like she was choking. The doctor said my mother is going to be fine and that a major problem was averted. The right treatment was administered and then mom was discharged. The sense of relief that washed over all of us at that moment cannot be described in words. Three days later, my sister delivered a healthy baby girl. My mother also recovered from her injury within a few days. Sai Baba averted a major crisis that had engulfed my family. It was a time wherein we felt everything was going terribly wrong all at once. But my Sai Baba protected us.
A further description of my Sai’s Leela is that we were prepared to get a hefty medical bill running into several thousands of dollars for my mother’s hospital visit and paramedics’ expenses. Since my mother was on traveler insurance, her accident, which was caused due to a pre-existing condition would not be covered by the insurance. The huge impending expense had kept us all worried. Now see how Sai Baba works in magical ways. He turned things around in such a way that the hospital reduced the amount of the bill from its end taking into consideration that my mother was a visitor in the U.S. who had traveller’s insurance only. The insurance company also ended up paying partial costs of the bill. In the end, the amount my family paid was significantly lower than what we had earlier expected. All this was due to my Sai Baba’s Grace and Blessings. My family and I are ever grateful to Him. We pray that He continues to protect us like He always has. Thank You Sai Baba. We Love You.
immediate answers. You will get your answers soon, if you have devotion and faith”. I am being in dreadful situation prayed daily and read Sai Satcharitra. I used to cry daily before Baba stating, please remove my sins and give us light of joy. Nothing seems to change. Still i pray daily and cry before Sai Baba. I read the experiences of the devotees from this site and thought Baba You are showing way to everyone, please show me at least You are listening to my prayers. I will be patient with full faith that You will cure my issues in near future.
My roommate went yesterday to shopping and she missed her wallet. She did not remember where she had left and when we realized, it was 10 pm. Almost all shops were closed. She went to stores and searched outside in all carts, since shop were closed, she did not find anything and came back home. She was trying to call bank to block cards. They were asking lot of questions and they were delaying the process to block the cards. She was worried as she was travelling to India in 5 days. Almost all cards, Indian card, office Id, everything was there and we were thinking of what to do. As far as, we knew, no phone number was there in the wallet, even if someone finds, how would they can contact us. That bank people were saying, we have rush service to deliver in 2 days but they can give either debit/credit card and discussion was going on. When she was in call with that people, i prayed to Baba as "Please she is in trouble, please make anyone to contact us regarding the wallet. I will wait with patience and won’t cry hereafter and will think You are hearing my prayers and You will give right things in right time & moreover, i will write this Leela in the page. I read other experiences, please do show mercy on her". I just stood up from my chair and my friend said, i got a voicemail from store stating they found the wallet. I was overjoyed. Really i don’t how to explain. We called the stores and they said even though they are closed, administrative office is open and we can come and collect there. I thanked Sai Baba. As per my prayer, i am writing here what i have experienced. I just wrote what happened. When we asked how they identified it is her wallet and called her. They said they saw a bill which she ordered online inside wallet and it had its number. She herself does not know when she kept that bill inside. There is no equality to anything in world, Sai is Great. Thank You Sai for providing me this opportunity. Sri Satchidhanandha Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai. Bow To Sri Sai, Peace Be To All.
Sai Baba Udi's power strikes in my mind. Since there was no Sai Baba Idol there, I prayed to Baba in my vision and I applied the Udi on forehead of my friend. Once I applied it, he started to sleep after 10 minutes and without any problems he slept peacefully. But we were still in tension as tomorrow will he remember everything or he will repeat the same questions. But to our surprise, he came back to conscious and made us happy. With this the faith and belief in Baba has increased many fold.
throat infection and doctor said she cannot give antibiotics as the viral infection should go away by itself and medicines cannot help much. Throughout the day, it was manageable but it became worse during night. She was coughing continuously and unable to sleep. I did not know what to do. Suddenly I remembered a Miracle posted in this website about the same issue quite some time ago by a Sai sister and applied Udi on my daughter, kept some inside her mouth and prayed to Baba please take care of my daughter and will post this here. With Baba’s Grace, she slept all through the night peacefully without any cough at all. Thanks a lot Baba for being with us always.
Om Sai Namoh Namaha Sri Sai Namoh Namaha Jai Jai Sai Namoh Namaha Sadguru Sai Namoh Namaha.
MBBS final year and my final exams begin on 6th Jan that is today. Since the past 2 days, i have been feeling so low and i haven't been able to study nor have i eaten. I am just drinking coffee to stay alert but even that hasn't been working. I am not well prepared for these exams, Baba knows that. Last year too, i wasn't prepared and i told Sai Baba to accompany me to every theory and practical exam. The results came out on 19th Feb 2014 and i came 3rd, all with Baba's Grace. It was His gift to me. The best gift of the year! Baba yesterday, i sat in Your Temple premises and cried for 40 minutes while Dhoop Aarti was going on. You reassured me by making the Pandit ji give me the water and food that had been prepared for You and offered to You. Baba please stay with me throughout these exams. This is Your year, this is my year. This time my birthday is on a Thursday and i am going to be in Shirdi if You want it. Please Baba may these exams and results be the best so far. I am here because of You. You have to pull me through this. I love You mere Sai.
