Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
For our better forthcoming future, my husband handed me with some big responsibilities of buying an investment property in Bangalore, getting visas done for my in-laws and bringing them Australia to their son as they had never been to Australia before. I was very worried and nervous. I had no clue that how I am going to live up to my husband’s expectation at such an early stage of our married life. I prayed to Baba seeking His Blessings as it was a very tough challenge for me. So as per our plan me and my in-laws started hunting for the property which was indeed a very difficult task, as we originally do not belong to Bangalore so we didn't had much idea about the place. At a point, I started finding it so difficult and started losing all my strengths and hope but I kept praying to Baba to strengthen and guide me. Nothing was working out, I was so distress. But suddenly one fine day my in laws planned to visit Shirdi. I was so happy because my long awaited desire of Baba’s Darshan was going to come true. The entire place was magical. As soon as I stepped on the holy land of Shirdi, I started to feel Baba’s presence everywhere which infused me with immense joy and strength. Baba’s Darshan was way beyond expressing in words. It gave me the sense of complete surrender and faith in Him.
After coming back from Shirdi, things started to happen in our favour. With Baba’s blessings the thing for which I was struggling from past two months happened immediately as we succeeded to get the desired property. Finally our deal was made. It was Baba, Who made it happen. We all were so happy and thanked Baba for His blessings. The celebration and the joy were on its peak, but Lord had some other plans, at the midnight of that very day suddenly my father in law fell terribly sick. He was not able to breathe and started sinking. I was numb and my mother in-law was in shock and pain, she started crying. I was standing there as rock steady didn't know what to do my mind was not at all functioning and even my husband was not there with us. The only hope and the only thing I knew was to pray to Baba. So I stared praying and chanting Om Sai Ram and asked Baba to show me the right path. Suddenly, I started feeling immense strength in me and my mind started working. Immediately I called up for the ambulance and admitted him to the hospital. His condition was not good. Due to some circumstances, my husband was not able to travel to India immediately, his tickets were confirmed only after 2 days. It was really a very tough situation for me as I was just 3 months old in their family and to handle everything at this stage was very difficult. But I continued worshiping and praying Baba.
Due to Baba’s Grace, after about two days his condition began to improve and he started getting better day by day. I was able to look after my in-laws and manage everything properly. Therefore as I was there with my in-laws and managed everything so well that my husband cancelled his visit. He said to me “My presence is not at all required while you are there with my parents. Even I could have never ever handled the entire situation the way you did”. Within a month, my father in law became hale and hearty as before. Thereafter I got their visas done and took them along with me to Australia. My entire family my In-laws, my husband, my parents all were very proud of me. Specially my in-laws they love me just like their own daughter. I just want to thank Baba for showering His blessings on me and my family in every odds and evens and being there with me as my hope, my courage and also as a guiding light. I sincerely ask Baba to continue blessing, loving and guiding me for the rest of my life. Jai Sai Ram.
To begin with the experience, in December 2014, Me, my younger brother and my mother had been to my mama's place at Yavatmal which is a small district of Nagpur. My brother had gone to some shop to buy something at around 4 p.m. but it was 7 p.m. and he did not return. My mami (Maternal aunty) was worried as it was late and also my brother was stranger to that place. My aunty was telling us that, the place is unsafe in evening time, especially when its dark. We all were tensed. So my cousin and me went on her Scooty and started searching for my brother. We could not find any trace of him. We searched a lot for him on every street and corner, but we could not find him. I started praying Baba, and while searching, I saw a huge Portrait of Baba. I was tension free when I saw Baba's Portrait and it was such a sight of relief. I Prayed to Baba as follows 'Baba, please help me find Akshay (My brother’s name), Baba he believes in You, he too has faith in You, we all are Your children, please bring my brother safely home Baba. I promise to come to Your Darshan in Your Temple nearby our house bare foot and also i will bring my brother along with me'. Then wonders of wonder, within a minute I received a call from my brother from an unknown person and he informed us where he was. Then we went to that location and picked him home. He did not carry his own mobile that day. So we had tough time searching him. It was Baba, Who made my brother call from some unknown person and thus informed us. Baba kept His promise and saved His devotees.
Now it was my turn to complete our vow. Now one more inscrutable Leela of our beloved Baba begins. Friends, kindly note as its mentioned in a chapter in Shree Sai Satcharitra how Baba blesses and helped in Mr. Dev's mother's concluding ceremony. If a devotee believes and surrenders himself at Sadguru's Feet, then Baba Himself takes care of the completion of ceremony. We returned from Yavatmal in January, but unfortunately there was a delay in my completion of vow, some or the other difficulty use to crop up. Thus 3 months passed and I still could not complete my vow. I was feeling very bad and guilty about it. I apologised to Baba for the delay. Then arrived the most auspicious best day in every Sai devotee’s life. Yes, you guessed it right on 21 March 2015, which is Gudi Padva i.e. new year in Maharashtra, Baba blessed our family with Shirdi pilgrimage. So, me along with my brother and entire family were blessed with Shirdi pilgrimage and as promised to Baba-I went to His Temple for Baba's Darshan barefoot from our home in Mumbai to Shirdi. Thus is how Baba blessed and helped me complete a vow and thus blessed us with Shirdi pilgrimage. The miracles, we experienced in Shirdi and during pilgrimage, I shall post in other post separately.
All I can say is Baba's Leelas are unfathomable beyond the ken of human mind and simply inscrutable. Baba's love for us is so much unconditional that it’s beyond our imagination. I wish I could take out my heart and place it at our Sai Maa's Feet but even that cannot be sufficient for this heart soul life everything already belongs to our Baba. Nothing is ours really, everything is Baba's. How can we speak offering something which already belongs to Baba. All I can say is Shat Koti Koti Pranam my Baba (Millions and millions of bow at my Sai Maa's Lotus Feet). I shall eternally remain indebted to my Sai Maa. Sorry for the delay in post Baba. I had promised Baba, i will post the experience once my brother returns but I could not-May be because Baba had better plans. Love You so very much my Sai Maa! Thanks a million million ton my Lord! Thanks to all readers for bearing with me and reading the post. May Baba shower His unconditional love and blessings on all of us. Bless us all my Sai Maa! Om Sai Ram Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai. Sai Ram Krishna Hari! Ananta Koti Brahmand Nayak Raajadhiraj Yogiraj Para-Brahma Shree Sachidanand Sadguru Shree Sai Nath Maharaj Ki Jai.
I had applied for some jobs and got few interview but i could not go for interview because i did not have a car and I did not know how to drive. In US, if you do not have a car it is very difficult to get things done. However, a few times my sister would drive me to the interview place but I used to feel very awkward to ask her for favour every time to take me to the interview place because sometimes it was far like 45 minute drive. So i thought that i should learn driving. I knew very little driving and i did not have driver license too. There was no one to teach me driving and it was expensive to take driving classes as i had not enough money. Sometimes, i used to cry by myself because i used to feel helpless. During that time, i got the blessing of my Sai. I used to pray to Sai everyday and read Sai Satcharitra and perform the Nav Vrat, i got some peace of mind and some clarity. But i don’t know, how I got the confidence to learn driving by myself. Every day, i used to borrow my brother-in-law’s car and i used to practice driving by myself in the parking lot. My sister never taught me driving, I don’t know why and i was very hurt. I had to learn driving by myself. Sometimes i used to see driving videos in you tube and learn. I feel Sai Baba was always next to me while I was practicing. Sometimes I used to cry while practicing all by myself in the parking lot.
One day, i decided to take the driving exam date and went for driving exam. I was very scared because if I failed then I had to wait for another 1-2 months to get exam date. When it was my driving exam date and it was my turn, i was shivering because i knew i would fail because i learnt driving by myself and i was not confident at all. I knew I would fail but still I wanted to try. All my friends and sister, brother in law thought i would fail. Before the driving exam started, i prayed to Sai and i said You have to drive for me. You know how important driving licence is for me and if i don’t pass this driving exam, i will have a hard time to get anything done. Throughout the driving, I was chanting Om Sai Ram. To my shock, the driving went pretty well but i could not do reverse parking very well, but the examiner passed me and told me that i should practice reverse parking. I was so shocked that i passed in the first time itself. Tears ran down my cheeks when i got the pass driving license paper in my hand. This is surely my Sai Baba's Miracle and I know He was there with me when nobody else was. Thank You Sai Baba, for being with me all the time. I hope You continue to bless me and shower Your Leelas. Now I am hoping I get a job soon. All Sai devotees please pray for me that I get a job soon and visa to work in this difficult phase of my life! I love You Sai. Om Sai Ram.
I am currently employed with a multinational bank here in Singapore. I joined this bank in 2011 in Mumbai and was transferred to Singapore in a couple of years by His Grace. Given my seniority, performance and tenure, I was also due for my promotion by the end of 2014 year end cycle. I decided to put in my best efforts during this time and with His Blessings, was also delivering well on critical projects for the team. Things seemed to be going really well but my promotion was thwarted at the last minute for no obvious reasons due to internal politics and favouritism demonstrated by my immediate manager. The series of events that followed was heart-breaking and dented my motivation and confidence to say the least. For the couple of months that followed the future of my career and aspirations that I had appeared to be a little uncertain and bleak.
However, as He always does for His devotees, Baba instilled a sense of confidence in me by inculcating positive thoughts and reassurance that hard work will always bear fruit and never go waste. Though I could have chosen to complain to higher authorities against the unprofessional behaviour and attitude displayed by my manager, I decided to rely on my Faith that this wasn’t meant to be and Baba would show me the alternate path to my career. Within a couple of weeks, I chose to identify roles within the bank and was selected immediately for an internal role basis an interview. This new opportunity has given me a platform to pursue a role that I have always aspired for and also a new manager who is regarded to be very people oriented. I am extremely grateful and thankful to Baba for this transition in my career and look forward to making the most out of this opportunity with His divine Blessings and Grace. My advice and humble request to fellow devotees is to always rely on His teachings (Shraddha & Saburi) and keep the Faith during uncertain times. Bow to Shri Sai & Peace Be to All
We started distributing lunch. That time, one person came there. He was asking money and food to my father. He came for lunch. He was eating and playing jokes with all people there. Firstly, i was keeping sweet in all plates, he asked me one more sweet. But i have seen my grandmother’s face and she told me that he is joking. That day, so many people came there for lunch. We were so happy that eighty people came for lunch and because of Baba’s Grace only, so many people came for lunch. Then I was looking for that man to give him another sweet. He was not there. I asked my father and he told me that he went. My mother was saying to me that may be that man was Sai Baba. Tears started flowing from my eyes. My mother told me not to cry, we will search. She called my driver to search. He told that he is not there. My grandmother said that He was Sai Baba and we did not recognize Him. Sai will always be with me, i am so happy to say this. Sai Baba is my everything. Sai Baba blessings to all of you, Om Sai Ram, Thank You.
