Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
Finally, three months back, I booked tickets as well as accommodation for a visit to Shirdi. I was very happy. Two weeks before departure, I fell down heavily and very badly injured both my knees. According to MRI scan there was grade 2 injury in right leg and grade 3 injury in left leg. Doctor ordered complete bed rest for 6 weeks. I asked him regarding Shirdi and he replied that it was out of question as the queues in Shirdi were long and it would take at least two to three hours for Darshan. He also said that I might have to have surgery after 4 weeks. You can imagine my anguish. I prayed to Baba to somehow make the visit possible. The other problem was the queue since I had booked during a long weekend. On the day of departure, we still had not decided what to do. The flight was at 8.30 pm. I was still in bed unable to even sit for long due to swelling. I prayed to Baba again. In the afternoon, my husband's colleague called from the office and during the course of conversation said that he was travelling to Shirdi the next day. My husband told him about our predicament and he immediately told us to reach Shirdi the next day and that he would get us a VIP pass so that I could see Baba within 20 minutes. We decided to have faith and travel.
My husband booked a cab at 3.30 pm. At 5.30 pm, when the cab didn't turn up, we called the operator who said that half an hour earlier we had called and cancelled! We said we had done no such thing to which he replied that nothing could be done as no cabs were available. While my husband was arguing with the operator another SMS came in. This was from a totally different operator and the message said that a cab would arrive in 15 minutes! Who booked the second cab we don't know. Who cancelled the previous cab, we don't know. There are no call records in my husband's mobile! We asked the second cab driver, when he arrived as to who made the booking, to which he replied a call had come at 5.35 pm from my husband's number! At that time my husband was arguing with the previous cab driver! Call records clearly show that. Till today, I don't have any explanation as to how a booking can happen from my husband's mobile while he was talking to someone else and why there are no call records. It is Baba and His infinite mercy. He wanted to show that He had arranged everything for me right from the VIP pass to the journey. I had a great Darshan and on returning doctor said - "No surgery". I can only wonder at Baba's love for each and everyone-human or animals. Jai Sai Ram.
Today I would like to share few of my experience that made me closer to my Baba. My son is studying engineering and staying in hostel. In Dec'2014, he had severe fever and diagnosed Typhoid fever. He was hospitalized and fever was there for three weeks. I prayed and prayed a lot to our Baba. In Typhoid fever, there are chances of re-occurrence of fever after a month. I was very much worried about his health as he had to go to US for a competition in March'15 which is a very big opportunity for his career. He worked very hard for it throughout the year. Only by Baba's blessings, my son got cured, got US visa, appeared for the competition. This became possible only with Baba's grace. For my son's health and his US trip I started Nav Guruvar Vrat. I went to Baba's Temple to ask for the permission. I was standing there and thinking how nice it would be if Baba gives garland as His blessings. I was waiting there in the corner. Suddenly one person came and the priest gave him a garland. I asked him for a garland, he happily gave it to me also. I felt so blessed.
Once because of some unavoidable circumstance, I could not go to the Baba's Temple on Thursday. I was very sad for it. In the evening at home I was watching TV, just changing channels, on local Bhakti channel I saw live telecast from the Temple where I used to go. I have never seen live telecast of this temple on this channel. I could not stop my tears, it’s like my Baba is saying you could not come to meet Me, doesn't matter, I am here to meet you. It was really an amazing feeling. After that once on Ramanavami, I went to the same Temple to meet my Baba. The temple committee has arranged Prasad (dinner) for devotees. As I went alone to the Temple, so I thought I will take some dry Prasad like sugar candy and come back. While coming back, I was near to shoe stand, wearing my shoe and one person came and asked me "Prasad nahi loge? Aise hi chale jaaoge?" (Won't you take dinner?)" I had never seen that person before in the Temple but it was my Baba who made him speak and invite me to join the dinner party given by my Baba. Tears were rolling out from my eyes. There are so many things to share. My Baba is always there with me. He is my strength. Now, I feel without Him, I am nothing. Baba please always bless us. Keep me in Your Lotus Feet. I don't have to worry about anything because You are there with me.
One week later, i forced my husband to read Sai Satcharitra with me. After completing the reading, my husband has checked his mail and then told me that there is one requirement so that they wanted me to send my resume to them. My husband has worked before there for 6 months and that was my husband’s dream place too. Immediately after checking that mail, he called his friend who is working there. Then she asked my husband to send the resume and then you will have an interview. My husband was very happy and was shocked to see all things happened on the same day. He has cleared his 4 tough interviews on Thursdays itself and they were very easy and relaxing too. Later we are little bit tensed because they told us that it is temporary job. We both prayed to Baba and later one week we got the news that it’s the permanent job. Then everything went very good. Our visa process had been started from February first week and completed in the last week of June. Company has asked my husband to join in the month of August, so we had some time we went to India and spent some time with our parents. As per Baba words, we also visited Shirdi in the month of July. I was very much happy as Baba’s words came true. My husband also promised me that we will be going to Shirdi every year. I was very happy to hear this and as His promise, we are going to Shirdi every year and having Darshan of my Baba. Thank You Baba. Thank You for everything what You have given in my life. Please hold our hands in each path and save us. Love You Baba. Om Sai Ram.
Coming to my experience, my parents started searching a suitable alliance for me. But they couldn't find a good match. Two years passed by. Me and my family went to mental pressure and depression. During that time one of my neighbour aunty gave me Nav Guruvar Vrat book. I started doing it with lot of faith. I have been crying day and night to our Baba as i have shattered by some bad experiences. I had faith and patience in our Baba. Before i could complete the Vrat, i got a good proposal and the match was accepted by my family. That boy was a very good person. But after we started talking, problems started from his family side. We both liked each other very much. I asked Baba that if You want me to get married, please made this happen. Many people tried to separate us. But what can they do when Baba is with us. By Baba's Grace, we got married last month and are very much happy. I couldn't have asked for more. Baba has given me such a loving and caring husband. He has blessed me hundred tines than what i have asked for. Now my husband also started believing in Baba. As i promised, i am writing my experience here. Thank You Father. Sorry for the delay. Dear devotees, if we have trust and patience, Baba will surely fulfil our wishes. Believe in Sai!
