Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
I was supposed to get my visa stamped in India during this time. I prayed to Baba that somehow my stay gets extended in India so that I get more time with my Dad. On the day of my visa stamping, I got a yellow slip 221G which meant that my visa will be granted only when my employer will provide some missing information. My employer got his attorney replying to them and this all took around 30 days. Baba granted me my prayers. My dad could not sit for a long time in the 4 wheeler and Shirdi was almost a 10 hour journey, but we somehow managed to get to Shirdi – nothing bad happened. We finally reached there and because my dad was on wheelchair, he could enter the Temple from the exit door which is close instead of being in the queue. Guards there were not allowing his chair inside, so we decided to carry him there. He walked up the Samadhi stairs on his own with so many people helping him out. I remembered Baba’s words – ‘He, who climbs steps of my Samadhi, would get rid of all worries and sorrows’. Suddenly one good man came and helped us carry him. However, just then someone got his chair inside and made him sit on that–no guard came in refusing this. We were overwhelmed! Baba made my Dad climb up the stairs with his own feet! In such a great rush hour, in the evening time, Dad was there in the front of the huge Idol of Lord Sai! He stayed there for 10 minutes! We were bowing down again and again to Sai Baba just behind his chair! Baba gave Darshan to all of us for 10 minutes! I felt as if Sai Baba had taken all of us near Him and given a warm hug and placed His Loving Hand on us. Tears rolled down and we felt blessed!
After having a beautiful Darshan, we came out and visited Dwarkamai and Chavadi. Near the Chavadi, my Dad was trying to get the Udi for himself, but because of his paralysis, he couldn’t. Suddenly one man came and gave a small bottle full of Udi to my Dad – we could not find that man later! Finally we came to a hotel. The next morning, my husband and I went to see Baba again. We were desperate to be there in the Temple for some time but Darshan was not so easy. We went there, did the Darshan, I left a small note at the Lotus Feet of Baba about my wishes – I wanted a baby, wanted to get my dad relieved, and my sister to get married. Fortunately, someone asked us to sit and do counting of the coins and notes (bills) that came as offering to Baba. We could sit right there, watch Baba all the time and do the work for the Temple! We had a nice Darshan and within a year, we got our daughter and my sister’s marriage got fixed. My Dad was really relieved of his worries, but now his health was at a point of no return.
One day, my mom was feeding him something which went in his lungs and he got aspiration pneumonia. He then was admitted to the hospital, after a month long struggle too, he wasn’t getting any better. All of us were near him and the doctor told us that there are no hopes. I could not see him in all that pain–the ventilator, his bed sores, his inability to speak – it was terrible pain. I thought of Sai Baba, went to His Temple and prayed that – ‘Baba, if You want to take my dada away, it’s ok, may be its his time of liberation, but please make him well first and then take him away!”-and got the Udi. I gave it to mom who put it all around his chest and stomach. Next day all his infection was gone! He was all well and shifted to the private ward from ICU! Doctor also could not believe his eyes that what a 3 gm antibiotic couldn’t do, it happened with the Udi! We were so happy, but alas after 48 hours of deep sleep, he passed away. I understood it well what had happened. I was deep in sorrow, but somewhere in my heart I was happy that my dad got salvation by Baba’s Grace. He was relieved and all his desires were fulfilled by Baba! Years after that, still we keep on feeling His presence and getting experiences which make us go closer and closer to Him.
Then I always wished to go to Shirdi as I hadn't been there before and due to unavoidable situations, I could not join with my relatives to Shirdi. So I kept asking my hubby to take me to Shirdi. Then I started reading Sai Satcharitra and I completed it in a week and the next day happened to be the start of our journey to Shirdi. We felt really blessed. We saw 2 Darshan and 2 Aartis. Really feeling blessed having been there. After Baba’s Darshan, while walking inside Mandir. I told my hubby that I wish to see someone just like Sai Ram in this Mandir and I want him to bless Us. You won't believe me, it just happened, my hubby showed me like look at Baba. He asked us for Dakshina. But he was blind actually. He got the Dakshina and blessed us. I have attached his image here. Baba has always helped us and whenever I am down with worries or whenever myself and my hubby get into fights, We immediately get Baba’s Darshan through some form. Either by seeing His Holy Name or Photo of Him anywhere. Sai Ram, right now I am very numb confused and worried in my life. Please take away all my unwanted fears and bless me with Good health Sai Ram. Forgive all our mistakes and please destroy our bad karmas and bless us abundantly. Guide us to help the sick and needy as much as We can. Love You Sai Ram. Anantha Koti Brahmand Rajadhi Raja Yogi Raja Parabrahma Shri Sachidanand Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai.
At this stage, Sai Baba entered into my life. I started visiting Shirdi regularly by His grace. Personal life was turning from bad to very worse. I lost my hard earned money, career, respect and what not. Finally entered into a phase of depression, lived with it for years and then there were those moments of enlightenment from Sai Baba not to think of my own sorrow all time and come out of the shell mode to reduce the agony of others. He blessed me to walk the path of service to the society, to make difference in others lives. Now I realize He had always been there for me all these years, waiting to wash all my karma off, to make me a better person. He gave me immense strength to endure all insults and abuse and finally made me understood the only way to make peace with life is not to anticipate anything from anyone and to give to the souls who are in worse condition than what I am in now. He showed me His presence few times and taught me to count my blessings like my health, energy and time in this birth. Now only one thing I pray Him every day is 'come what may, all that I want is to be Your daughter. My only identity today is I am Sai's daughter. All good and bad happening to me is not mine, but from Him, for Him. Despite life circumstances, He bestowed me with mental peace, inner stillness. Thank You so much for Your gift Baba.
Next day, we watched him and my baby became really fussy, hard consoling him. Then I called up the nurse. She said, you can make another appointment and get him checked. Those four days were very stressful for us. I was praying to Sai Baba to help us find the problem. So fifth day, we made an appointment. Doctor send us to emergency department to rule out the problem. She suspected couple of infections and wanted to take an ultrasound. We took him to ER they took all the possible tests and finally we got to know that nothing serious, he is having a urinary tract infection. They gave antibiotics and send us home after 5 hours with medicines for 10 days. Baby cried a lot during the tests but all for good. Thank You Sai Baba for giving us the strength. Baby is still under medication. Please Sai Baba bless my son with good health. Please forgive all our mistakes and save us from these hurdles. Sai Ram Maharaj Ki Jai.
