Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
So, we called up the hotline and were sent to so many people and no one gave us any accurate information. We kept calling everyday in the morning and finally after a week, a person told us that we missed a copy of driver's license. He asked us to either post it or go to Indian consulate's outsourced agency and drop it off. To expedite, we took all the paper work and went to Indian consulate's office early morning at 7 am. They didn't even let us in as the tokens for that day were already distributed at 6:30 am itself. We waited to see if anyone could let us in, but nothing happened. So we gave the paper work to the guard outside. We kept calling the hotline but we didn't get proper status update and time was running out. We didn't know if we should postpone the trip or cancel the trip altogether. Finally, we got an update that my application is now under consideration. But there was no update on my husband's application. So he went to the consulate very early at 5:30 am to find out what's happening. He told them about the upcoming trip, so the person helping him was kind enough to send the paper work to the embassy with emergency. My husband was asked to pick up his visa the next day. We were hoping I would get my visa as well since my application was picked for processing earlier. The next day my husband went to pickup his visa and asked for my status. They said it’s still under processing and they can’t reveal much unless the candidate is present. This was on Thursday and we were supposed to leave to India on Tuesday afternoon the following week.
So, Friday I went to the consulate to find out the status of my application. It was still under processing and they couldn't tell me if it would come by Monday or not. So, we didn't know what to do. That weekend, I packed my husband's and son's clothes and asked them to go to India as planned since cancelling or rescheduling tickets in December is very expensive. Also we already made all arrangements for our trips within India. My son wasn't comfortable going without me, but we didn't have an option. We wanted to give it one more try and went to the consulate again on Monday evening. We waited and waited and my application wasn't there in the ones that got processed for that day. We gave up all hopes and wanted to cancel my ticket. Just at that time, a higher level consulate official came out and asked us what the problem is. After we shared with him our dilemma, looking at my son, he said he will see what he can do. He called up some internal folks and told us that my application is still in the waiting queue. He pulled up my application and put it at the top of the list for next day processing for the early batch and asked me to come to the consulate next day morning at 9 am. Our flight was at 3 pm in the afternoon. He also gave a chocolate bar to my son and said sorry that we had to come to consulate so many times.
Next day, I packed a few clothes and left home to go to the consulate, still not knowing if I would get the visa or not. My husband and son were to go to the airport directly by 12:30 pm. By Baba's grace, my visa was processed in the early batch and stamped by 11:30 am. Now the question of reaching to the airport, I came out of the consulate and looked around for cabs and found none. So I walked a block and asked someone (a Chinese person) if I could get cabs anywhere close by that would take me to the airport. He said I would have to walk 2 more blocks. While I was waiting for the traffic light, he came back and said he can drop me at the airport for $30 if I am okay with it. I was in a fix, whether I should trust him and go with him in his car or walk 2 blocks and wait for the cab. Taking Baba's name and putting the entire responsibility on Him, I went with that person in his car. He dropped me at the airport terminal at 12:30 pm and just then I saw my husband and son getting down from their friend's car. Baba timed it so perfectly. Baba may at times test our faith, but always have trust in Him, He always helps out His devotees. By His grace, we had good Darshan of Venkateshwara Swami in Tirupathi, Sai Baba in Shirdi. We showed our villages to my son and every minute we thanked Baba who made it all happen. Thank You Sai Ram.
Here are few of my experiences. In 2008, I was returning from office on my motor bike and haven't seen Sai Baba since morning. I used to have a glimpse of His picture on back of car or cabs daily. So, I just thought "Baba, I am going to take left turn for my house (about few furlongs) and I want to see You before I take the turn" Lo! just around the corner there was a cab parked and on the rear side was the picture of Baba smiling at me. This was my first experience with Sai and is still fresh in my mind. In 2013, one day in middle of the night, I started having severe stomach ache, something similar to cramps. I just got out of the bed and started walking around the room praying Sai. My wife got Udi of Baba and she applied it on the side of the stomach where there was a pain. She just took off her hand out of the point of pain and the pain was gone. I could believe myself as I have only read such experiences in books.
This experience happened today. I am delivery manager with a corporate firm. My responsibilities include taking care of the work for my clients and also resource management. One of the resources working for my team suddenly sent a note of resignation citing health reasons. The notice period was less than 3 days which means there is no way I can find and bring a replacement. I had multiple conversations with the person requesting to stay for week or two more so that I can bring a replacement resource and also assuring of very little work load. It didn't work and the person was not willing to change the move out date. How to convey the message to client and handle the situation without impacting the work was a big dilemma as I have got clue. I had full faith in Baba as He has always been showing way or solutions and saving me. I have been praying to Him last 4 days but could see no positive results. While I still had a hope that Baba would bring out a solution on another side of the mind I almost gave up and was preparing myself to talk to my client.
I was trying to make a call to my colleague to update the situation and then my phone rang. It was my boss and he called me to inform that he spoke again with the person and convinced to stay for 3 weeks. The same boss spoke 2 days ago and the conversation didn't yield any positive result. How come there was a sudden change unless Baba made it to happen. My joy knew no bounds and I immediately prayed before Baba's Picture. I couldn't thank enough and that is not what He expects too. Just love Him in return and keep faith in Him. There have been innumerable experiences for me as He always makes His presence felt but the above 3 are few important ones I remember and wanted to share. As said in Satcharitra "Anyone can leave us but Sai won't forsake us". Just believe in Him and call Him and He will be there standing next to you. Om Sai Ram.
One day my wife asked me to start reading Sai Kasht Nivaran Mantra with her, when I read that I feel very confident that I will find a new job again, I start reading it daily, before reading it I feels too much depressed but after reading it I feel confident and tension free. We both read Sai Baba Miracle on Facebook and find that it boost our self confidence and trust on Sai Baba. I try the Sai Baba question and answer website in January and I get a reply that you will get a job in April/Ramanavami. I get through some interviews but due to some or other reasons I didn't get the job offer. We have to go back to India as our visa get expire but still we have full trust on Baba and I get the regular interview calls in India. I got 2 offer letters as well but I don't want to join that organisation and want to work again in Dubai so I refuse them even though I don't have job in hand and desperately need one, but I have trust on Baba that He will arrange something good for me. In month of March, I saw one advertisement on job portal for Dubai location, I call up the consultant and tell him about my profile. He find it very suitable for role and arrange my interview very soon. From that day itself, I feel from inside that I will get this job and finally after interview round in April they offer me job without taking much time. All of the interviews that happen during 4 months help me to keep my patience. After that we visited Shirdi and this time we got a very good chance to do Darshan in a very comfortable way. Everything has its time and will take place at that time only we just need to keep trying with patience and keep believing in Baba. He will take care of everything. Jai Sai Ram. Shri Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai.
Now we have a separate gate for our portion. We are not able to sell the house because of brother in law’s wife. She is trying to do all sorts of things so that we cannot sell the property. We have brought another property by selling some other property which is half way stand still, unless we sell this we cannot complete the project. We have lots of belief in Baba. He has done so much for us. We believe that He will do Miracle and complete our projects. Sai Baba came in my dream and asked me to write His miracles in 1000 words so I am writing. I wonder my project is not complete why He asked me to write but there may be many reasons which Baba alone understands. So keeping faith in Him, i am writing this. Baba always does Miracle and I know in my case also He would do. My brother in law’s wife did black magic also so that she can get the entire property. Baba has done Miracles and saved us from death also. My entire family is servant of Sai Baba.
