Highlights of this post:
After hearing the announcement, I was not sure if i want to do Paduka Seva or not. However, out of curiosity, I was inquiring with another devotee regarding Baba’s Paduka Seva. On Baba’s inspiration, I requested Sai Samsthan, if I can invite Baba’s Padukas in my home on the Deepawali day itself after the Pooja as we were having Sunder Kand path in our home the following day. Though there were many devotees who were eager to invite Baba’s Padukas, but with Baba’s Blessings they accepted my request to bring Baba’s Padukas in our home after the Pooja on Deepawali day. After a week, we came to know that due to solar eclipse, falling on the Deepawali day they have postponed the Paduka Pooja and no other date was yet decided for the same. I was very sad to know this. Only Sai Baba knows His Leela. As per Baba’s blessing, after a week they informed me that Paduka Pooja will now be held on January 1st 2015 and we can invite Padukas in our home the same day. I was thrilled to know that as January 1st not just being a new year’s day is also my husbands’ birthday. What better present we could have gotten than having Baba come into our home. On the 1st January morning, we reached the venue for the Pooja and me and my husband were the first ones to perform Paduka Pooja and in the evening Baba and Baba’s Padukas blessed our home. May Baba shower His blessings on all His devotees. Jai Sainath, Om Sai Ram.
rush in hurry because so many devotees come for Darshan. But Baba is so kind, when we reached Shirdi in the night around 9, we did not get VIP pass, so hotel people told us to go for Darshan and come. When we went, for our surprise, there was no rush at all. We had so blissful Darshan, i offered shawl, flowers, sweets and I made my little daughter touch the Samadhi of Baba. We came back to hotel. It was so beautiful Darshan. Then next day morning around 4, we went for Aarti in VIP Darshan. I can't explain in words that Darshan I had. When Aarti was going on I literally cried. I could not control my eyes. I could not believe that I was standing in front of Sai Baba. He was smiling and giving His blessing to all His children. I still cannot forget that face of Sai Baba. I want to thank Baba for calling us to Shiridi.
Another Miracle of Baba is, here in UAE windows doesn't have grills and there are so many incidents when kids fell from windows. Yesterday, it was very cold inside the bedroom so I thought I will open the window for sometime so that the sunlight comes inside. Then I forgot and went down to bring my big daughter from school. After having lunch, me and my big daughter were watching movie. My small daughter 3 year old told that she will sleep and went to bedroom. I had forgotten about the window. Suddenly, I remembered, I had opened the window and I forgot. If I would not rush, my small daughter would be in danger. I still get goose bumps when I think of it. That was Sai Baba only, Who on time remembered me about the window. Otherwise my daughter would really peep out the window. Thank You Sai. This shows that Sai Baba is always with us. He never leaves His kids alone anywhere they go. I don't get words to say thanks to Sai. Love You Sai Baba. Om Sai Ram.
I was bit tensed inside by observing that guys behaviour in the function hall, but i did not talk with any one regarding this. I myself started to adjust. When we use to talk on phone, i came to know that it’s bit tough to adjust with him, and finally engagement got broken. It was very tough situation in my life. I was not able to come out side for some days. Later i come up with so many difficulties. From that day onwards, i stopped worshipping Baba. I asked Your help, but You played with me. I use to ask so many question to Him. Later after 4 years, one of my friend’s aunt gave Baba’s book and asked me to read. I said her, i am not interested to read. She explained, Baba will do all these for our sake only, just have patience. Then i started praying. I decided from that day, whatever happen may be good are bad, i won’t stop believing Him. Now i am working as a Software engineer, roaming around. Thanks to Baba to be a part of my life. I am asking Baba, please bless me with good husband and family. My parents are so much worrying about this. Now good matches are not fixing, what has Baba planned for me i don’t know. Please Baba bless me. Om Sai Ram.
Then I opened my eyes and realized it was a dream. Tears rolled from my eyes. It was 4'o clock in the morning. I felt very proud and great to be touched by Baba's Holy Hands. I got up and took bath to perform Pooja. After performing Pooja, I prayed and thanked Baba for blessing me in my dream. I randomly opened Sai Satcharitra book. I couldn't believe myself seeing the page and cried from bottom of my heart. There was written about Khaparde's wife. In the same way Baba massaged her hand and she was massaging Baba's Lotus Feet. I just felt "Am I Khaparde's wife in the last birth? Such a great devotee of Baba?" There Baba advices her to recite "Raja Ram" mantra which will give peace in her life. From that moment, I keep reciting the mantra Sai advised to Khaparde's wife. Later I read one more Sai Satcharitra Book from my friend. There also Baba says about Khaparde's wife that she will take birth as a Brahmin. Yes, May be I am that Brahmin girl. Please Baba, Keep us protected and guide us in good way. Om Sai Ram.
good guy for her we were disappointed with the boy for some reason or the other. This was Sai's way of asking us to be patient. Last year in May, we got a proposal for her and within one week, she was engaged. The marriage date was fixed for January 2015. The marriage budget was too high and we were not able to afford it. When we tried for private loan it was for 10% interest every month which was too much for us. We were in dilemma that how the marriage is going to happen. I had some problems with my credit report so I was not able to get 1 lakh loan. Whenever I applied for it, it was rejected. We were losing patience as we were coming close to date. Then Sai Baba showed me the way. I started doing weekly Parayan (completing Sai Satcharitra in 7 days). When 1st week was completed, I got news that my loan could be done by another bank. Again for some reason processing was taking time. In 2nd week the file was rejected. But I did not lose hope. I was continuously doing Parayan. I and my loan agent went to meet bank official and we came to know it was because of an error so we tried to resolve the issue. It took 2 weeks but the issue was resolved. Finally my loan was passed and I got cash for my sister's marriage. This was possible only because of Sai Baba. Thank You so much for guiding me and helping me and making my sister's wedding day a grand success. Om Sai Ram!
