Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles in this Post:
cancer, everyone including Arjun (My husband) knows about that apart from me. They thought they were protecting me. They told me that it was a minor gastro surgery and none wanted me to come to India since we had a trip planned to visit Dubai, Is Dubai trip important than staying with my mom). Arjun saw how i was suffering staying far from her and booked me a ticket to India. I reached India on 9 September (2nd day after my mom’s surgery). She was in ICU. No one was allowed to see her. But by requesting the doctors, i had a chance to meet her. I was happy and my mom was too. I said that i will meet her the next day because they will shift her to room from ICU. I left the hospital to stay that night. I received a call that my mom’s condition is serious and went to hospital early to listen the worst news that she passed away on 10 September. (I still remember the good bye kiss, i gave her before leaving the hospital).
3 months passed. In January 2015, i had this dream an unknown voice saying ('Mee Amma Na Bhakthuralu Aythe, Nuvventi Nannu Marchipoyav? Your mom is my disciple, and you forgot me?). I woke up disturbed and started thinking who it might be. My first thought was Baba, Yes, my mom was Baba disciple. She did Baba Bhajans every Thursday and Sunday till my dad expired. When i was young, she made me sweep all the Baba Temple in our village. My Mom used to say "Baba likes Seva" and made me do simple work during the construction of that temple. She used to read Parayan book, and made Prasad and she was a dedicated devotee. I was not aware of anything. I just followed her instructions and went to Temple along with her. Soon after realising it was Baba’s call, i asked Arjun to take me to Shirdi. To my surprise, he said yes. (He used to say "He is the same God at Shirdi or Tirupathi or even in the Temple at street end"). We reserved tickets to Ajanta express from Hyderabad to Nagarsol on 31 January. We were Me, Arjun, my in laws and Arjun’s sister. Return tickets were on 1 February night from Nagarsol back to Hyderabad (waiting list).
After reserving the tickets, i was way too curious about my dream and started Google. That’s where i found this website and made me realise how far i have been from Baba for the past few years. Thank you for making me realise Baba. I told the entire me, mom and Baba Temple to Arjun. He told that may be its meant to happen. I happily packed luggage and waited for the cab, that supposed to take us 5 from our home to railway station. Arjun booked an Innova and we were surprised to see an Indicia. I was way too furious. How can we 5 +1 driver= 6 sit and travel in Indicia with luggage for an hour or more if we stuck in traffic? After 15 minutes, speaking with dot cabs member and driver, my mama ji (Father in law) decided to travel by auto and we 4 by cab. I was like, "Why did this happened. I had everything planned and ready for our trip and this?" I was so sad to make my father in law travel along because we had too much luggage and we can’t risk leaving Arjun. Then i thought, may be Baba is testing us.
Anyway we reached happily to Nagarsol and then to Shiridi in the morning. Our room was comfortable. We freshened up and started from the hotel at 10.30, because we had to reach Shani gate by 11 (I totally forgot to mention that we booked Madhyan Aarti tickets online). Our auto driver cared enough to tell us to drop our foot wear only in Temple maintained places and directly go into Temple, without talking to some people who tried to explain us something about quick Darshan and stuff. After reaching the temple premises, we bought flowers and stepped into Temple. Soon after entering into the temple (From gate 4), i started feeling heavy hearted and felt like suffocating. We reached Shani gate directly and asked to wait in a hall opposite to Shani gate. I was not too comfortable with my heavy hearted feeling. Arjun kept on asking me what’s wrong, but i couldn't explain. At 11.45, they asked us to form a queue to Shani gate. We went inside, moved briskly, then separated by different queue lines for ladies and gents. I was quite disappointed that i can’t have Arjun beside me, when i see Baba. As i started approaching to the main hall, my heart started to ache and i felt as if i am having a heart attack. After pushed enough from ladies behind me, i tried to stay left in the line to view Baba more from what i have read from blogs ( I warned Arjun earlier that day to stay extreme right, ladies to extreme left and gents to extreme right).
At a glimpse of Baba, in white, i was awestruck. I cannot explain how i felt that moment. I felt as if all my weight drifted and suddenly felt light, so light that while moving close to Baba, i checked if i can feel my toes touching ground. I could feel the cool floor. I moved close enough to watch Baba from about 5 foot distance. I was blessed to be there. I don’t remember what i thought for those 5 or 6 minutes before the Aarti started. I was just seeing Baba. When the crowd chanting started, then i realised where i was. Tears started rolling and i cried the entire Aarti trying hard not to close my eyes. All i could think of was my parents and missing them. I cried as if explaining to Baba, how much pain i have been carrying in my heart. How guilty i felt for still being alive and breathing without them. How guilty i felt for even to smile after mom’s death, how much i tried to hide my feelings, how much i wished to be dead, how much i wished they were here. How happy they would be when i have kids, how happy they would be to know Arjun takes care of me like a baby, how it would be to my dad getting to know Arjun and them having conversations, I explained everything in my tears to Baba. It was almost end of Aarti. I started to notice that my mother in law let me cry just holding my hand as if letting my pain go. Baba seemed watching me in the crowd. I felt as if He was watching me alone amidst of the crowd. That made me to weep even more. After Aarti, we moved more close to Samadhi, enough for me touch a corner and i cried loud enough that a lady who manages the queue was kind enough to let me stand there for a few more minutes. I cried my heart out realised how detached i am to Baba, how He wanted all this to happen. Then Pandit ji gave me a cloth. Even though, i went empty handed (My mother in law has garland and stuff). I thanked Baba 1 last time and came out. I felt so light as if i left everything to Baba.
Soon after coming out, my only intension was Arjun. I found him waiting for us and ran to him. I guess, he saw me crying in the queue and cared enough to take me aside. He just sat holding me. I did not say anything, but he knew enough how i felt. He told "Ammu if we stay in India, i promise, we will come to Shirdi every year. If we go back to USA, i promise that whenever we come to India, we will visit Shirdi and then only go back to USA". Then i realised just in an year and half how Arjun understood me enough to know what i wanted. I have Arjun, may be Baba knew that my parents can’t be there with me forever and instead gave me Arjun. How happy my mom and dad would be to know how Arjun cares about me. I am relieved. I felt so peaceful and happy for no reason. I was with Baba for about half an hour. How blessed i was at that moment, with Baba for about half an hour. I was feeling happy. I had the entire tour of the Temple premises, took Udi, bought a Book and left for our hotel after lunch at 4.30. I bought few petty things for family and made preparations to reach Nagarsol. Our tickets confirmed, of course they will be. I was happily reaching home after taking leave from Baba. I left my pain, guilt, even my suicidal tendencies to Baba. I am Ammu, a happy 24 year wife who has Arjun. I made a promise to myself that i will stay close to Baba, stay happy, peaceful and wishing my mom and dad were happy up there with Baba watching me. We reached home safely. All together from my experience i could say is, He questioned me in my dream, He answered my questions in the visit. Baba, thanks for making me take steps towards You. Shri Sai Nath Maharaj Ki Jai, Sarve Jana Sukhino Bhavantu.
miracles He did in my life. Thank You so much Baba. Jai Sai Ram, I would like to share my experience with all of you which made me believe in Baba. I got married in 2013, immediately after the wedding my husband had to go back to US to join his work. I was working in India and I had to be with my in-laws. Plan was to join my husband as soon as I get my Visa approved but nothing worked out until 7-8 months as I had some problem with my documents to apply for visa and also some family commitments. It was very depressing. Finally I had all the documents with me, I went for visa interview (I went to Sai Temple in the morning before going to US Embassy), everything went fine in the interview but visa Officer kept my passport and gave me a "Paper" which means my visa is going to be under "Administrative Processing". That means it is not sure whether I will get my visa approved or not and I might have to wait for 2-3 months for the result. This news was a real heart breaking news for me and my husband. I was very very upset.
Next day I went to my office and told the whole thing to my close friend and she said "Leave everything on Baba and rely completely on Him" and got me "Shri Sai Satcharitra" Book and asked me to read with whole heart (I used to go to Sai Temple before also but never experienced any miracles). I started reading the book every day, while reading I used to cry a lot in pain and depression. I became sick, had both physical (sever body pains) and mental stress because of which I was not able to sleep. One night while reading the book, I cried and didn't realize that I slept off. That night I saw 2 dreams, In my 1st dream-I saw Baba, He was in Shirdi (I had never seen that place in my life before), He was sitting wearing brown/off-white cloths. He was in pain (He was suffering from some disease and every part of His body was hurting). I touched His Feet and asked Him, what happened Baba, He replied "Don't worry, everything will be fine, all the pains will go away". Then I saw 2nd dream-In the dream I saw that I was running behind many people to go to a "stage" in a big building and I was the last one to run. Then came a point where there were 2 doors, people in front of me chose the "right" door and I was about to run behind them, I heard a voice "come here" from the left door. I ran into the left room and I saw Baba in white cloths, He turned towards me, smiled at me and gave me a "Piece of paper" and said - "This is for you, here is your stage, do not get scared of anything, I am with you". Strangely, that was the place from where I could see the whole stage very clearly. After these dreams, I got up suddenly and was shocked and into tears that I saw Baba in my dreams. After sometime, I realized that I didn't have any "Body pains" at all, and somehow my mental pressure regarding the Visa approval is also gone, I felt Baba assured me that He is going to solve my visa problem.
I still kept reading Shri Sai Satcharitra, I had 1 chapter remaining in the Book and I got the mail from US embassy that my passport is ready to pickup. It was a Friday evening so I couldn't go to collect. My heart was beating very fast as it was not clear whether Visa is approved or not. On Friday night, I finished reading the book and I went and collected my Passport on Monday morning. My Visa was Approved. I wholeheartedly thanked Baba. After that also something happened which I am not able to understand till now, As soon as I got my visa (at 11:15 am), I came out of the building looking for an auto to go to the Temple (Where I went before visa interview). Suddenly 1 auto guy came from somewhere and told me how much ever you want to pay me give I will take you to the Temple and from there to your home, so we decided on 300 rupees. When I reached Temple, it was close to 12 pm i.e. Aarti time (It was like Baba wanted me to attend His Aarti). Auto guy said, he will wait. So I attended Aarti and when I came out and searched for that auto guy he was not there. I asked the shopkeeper in front of whose shop he parked his auto, but he said there was no auto parked there. I was shocked. Then there was another auto with Sai Baba's Picture in it, that guy said "Ma, I will drop you home, pay me 100 (which was very very less). And the same week on Wednesday, I started for Shirdi and was there on Thursday, Baba helped me get train tickets and everything done within 2 days through my friend. Within 15 days, I was with my husband. Me and my Family is so thankful to Baba. He is always with His devotees. Jai Sai Ram. I pray to Baba to help all His people.
Two week later, i gave my new Saree for dry cleaning. The shop operator told me to collect after a week. When I went to collect on time, the Saree was missing. She searched that in whole shop. She told me to come after some hour. After some hour also she was unable to trace and told me to call next day. Next day when I called, she told that she is worried and will call me, if she found my Saree. On next day she didn’t call me, that induced some tension. Next day also i waited for her call but no response. The only hope is Sai Deva. I prayed Deva to find out my Saree because i planned to wear that in a marriage. I prayed wholeheartedly and do the chit method. While preparing the chit my eyes were always striking with Yes chit. I told Deva that if I found my Saree on that day only, I will share my experience and when i picked the chit in front of Deva, it was Yes. I was hopeful that i would get my Saree on the same day, so i went to the shop in evening without calling her. For my surprise, Saree was found and i thanked Deva from my heart. Thank You Deva for each and everything boosting our faith.
I want to share two more experiences here for which i promised Deva. I am sorry for the delay. In June 2014 my aunty, who lives with us want to go home to attend a wedding but there was no train ticket available. I was very much worried, since she desperately wants to attend that wedding. As usual only one hope Sai, i prayed Deva and after trying continuously three days for Tatkal ticket, we finally booked her tickets for to and fro journey. At that time the weather was worst, too hot. I prayed Deva to take care of her health because she is used to of AC and at the wedding place, there was no option of electricity. But with the blessings of Deva she returned healthy and safely. One day my daughter was suffering with cough and cold. In spite of using all homeopathic and allopathic medicines, she was not comfortable. All of a sudden in the midnight she started coughing nonstop. We were worried are tried everything. We usually try to touch and use Udi after taking bath only but with no other option, i gave some Udi to her and also applied on her forehead. With the blessings of the Kindest Deva, the coughing reduced and she slept after some time. Thank You Deva. Om Ananta Koti Brahmand Nayak Raajadhiraj Yogiraj Par Brahma Shri Sachidanand Sadguru Sai Nath Maharaj Ki Jai.
In the next day or so, I left India for the foreign job. When I reached there, although it seemed a nice country, I was worried for a few reasons. After the outcome of the interview, I had conveyed that the company should sponsor resident visa for my mother also, cost for this I shall bear. While the company had no objection to this, the employer informed that issuing resident visa is not in company's hands as it is done by the Government. So, from company side they will make all efforts but cannot guarantee since it depends upon the government. (Obtaining resident visa is not a problem for the employee, spouse and kids). Besides this, I was thinking if I made the right decision of quitting my reasonably good job in India. Then, worries got even worse, right from the 1st day in my new foreign office. Because, I did not like the office day I joined itself. But, what will I do? If I quit and return to India, what is the guarantee that I will immediately get a suitable job? Moreover, people will also talk about my stupidity of leaving a good job in India and going abroad for the sake of money or "foreign attraction" only to return back the next day. My family will definitely be hurt if I quit the new job also without another in hand. So, disliking the office, I used to go to that job everyday.
Suddenly one morning just before a week-end holidays of about 4 days, it seemed to me that my dearest Sai Baba asked me to come home to India during the weekend holidays. Without any thought before or after experiencing Sai Baba, on Sai's words, I straight away walked to the airline office and booked return ticket and came to India and fortunately it was Ganesh festival during that time. How lucky I was blessed by Sai Baba to celebrate Ganesh Pooja at home with my mother in India without planning travel! After returning abroad, I resumed duty. In a few month's time my application with fees for mother's resident visa was processed due to Sai Baba's blessings and I was so overjoyed on receiving the visa and this enabled my mother and family to also come and being with them, God Sai Baba gave me courage to continue going to that office for a couple of years. Sai Baba also helped in getting a job in India enabling our return. For the blessings showered by Sai Baba, i beg Him to permit me to pray to Him with utmost devotion, respect, reverence, faith, gratitude and thanks giving, every moment of my life for the rest of my life by taking His Sacred, Holy Name and doing good work, help and service. Om Sai Ram. I myself do not know how i survived for some years in that company.
In 2014, we were in difficult situations. My husband was in disturbed mood, I don't know why. He said "You have to do the job for our better life". Still I am trying and so many times I failed. I cleared 2, 3 rounds in software field Interviews but did not get a job. After that in government sectors also, I faced failures. I felt very sad, because I tried and trying also, what should I do? One day, I felt very sad and cried while sleeping. I wake up and switch on the System and started searching for Sai Baba. That time i don’t know about Sai blogs and Sai Satcharitra. I was reading Sai devotees experience and was crying to Sai to give me a job and solution for my husband happiness. Then I got Sai Satcharitra and continue to read till 4 am. After few days, when my Sai Satcharitra reading completed, my husband told me that his job was in very critical position. "He was on bench from last few months, Yesterday only they joined him in a new Project". Then I said internally to Sai Baba, Thank You Baba, You saved me and my entire family. Thank You Thank You. Not only these thing Sai always did, doing miracle in my Life. Sai is always with me. He is blessing me a lot. But still I did not get a job. Still I am writing bank exams, but result is 0. But I will not leave trying to get a good job, because Sri Sai Baba is with me. Now I am doing Nav Guruvar Vrat. This is my Second Thursday. This time surely, i will get a good job by Sai blessings, Then I will post my experience with few more. Thank You Sai to give me chance to post my experience with Your devotees. Om Sri Sai Ram. Om Sri Sai Ram.
