Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
Anonymous Devotee from US says: I am a software engineer working in US. I have always felt Sai Baba has helped me so many times and in so many ways. His hand is always on my shoulders to help me cross all the obstacles in life. I have had so many experiences that I might not be able to write them all here but I will try. The first time I was in US, I fell in love with a guy at my workplace. We also dated in that time period. But somehow when I expressed my feelings to take this forward with him, he told me that he didn't felt the same. I was so sad, angry, hurt and felt like everything crashed around me. It ended on a bad note and I stopped talking to him. I didn't realize until that point that Sai Maa has a plan for me. I was talking to my friend's mom one day about all this since she's an astrologer and she asked me to start talking to this guy again since she felt confident that he was the one for me. On her insistence, I started talking to him again. We became very good friends but I still loved him.
After sometime, my parents wanted me to get back to India so that I could get married and settle down. I agreed and went back to India. My parents had put my bio-data on a matrimonial site and we started meeting families. It was very painful for me because I still loved this guy. I had so much pressure on me to settle for somebody (doesn't matter if I like him or not) because my parents were getting desperate. I stated reading Sai Satcharitra everyday and also read it multiple times in 7 day period. It really helped me to get through the painful times (related to meeting some guy and then justifying to my parents that why I don't like him). All this while I was in touch with this guy and I had accepted my fate of not getting married to him. Then one day, he told me that he is coming back for vacation to India. Since my hometown was in his way, we agreed to meet once. We met on his way for a few hours and he continued his journey to his home. I don't know what happened but I got a call from him after a few days and he asked me if I still wanted to marry him. I was so happy and said yes. But he said that his parents do not agree to it so it may not be possible at the end. He asked me to not stop looking for suitable guys for myself since it may not be possible for us to be together. It was painful for me to do that but I knew Sai Maa will make it all right. He tried hard and we had to wait for almost 2 years after that since we had many hurdles to cross. All this time, Sai Baba was with me and He had this all planned out. With the blessings of my Sai Maa, we got married.
Before we got married, I asked my company to transfer me to US again and I wanted to work from my husband’s location. They said okay since I had a valid visa and there were other people in the team who were working like this. After I came back from my wedding and joined again, I was told that I had to wait for the approval from higher management in order to travel since the project was not generating much profit. I was getting so desperate that one time, I thought of resigning, file a dependent visa and go on my own. I used to go everyday to ask for my travel request status but my manager was not able to get the higher management to approve the request. 3 months passed like this and my patience was giving in. Sai Maa again came to my rescue. One day my manager thought of a plan and he asked me to resign so that higher management approves my travel request and after they do I can take my resignation back. To my wonder, it worked! I was finally able to travel to US at my husband’s place and was permitted to work from there. Sai Maa did it again!
Now when I came to US, the workload was very high. I had to work till late night and was getting bad headaches because of the stress I was going through. You know how it works in Indian companies - the offshore-onsite politics, bad management etc. I used to have fights with my managers all the time and life was very tough. Managers thought that they were Gods and expected us to be at their service 24 X 7. I used to pray Baba to help me out. One day, my husband’s manager asked him if I was interested to work with them and then arranged for an interview. To my surprise, I cleared it and they were very eager to hire me. But they could not hire me since I had L1 visa and for this job, I had to have H1 visa. Sai Maa helped me this time again. My husband’s company filed for my visa and was ready to wait for 7 months after that (Since we could only start working from Oct on H1 and the visa was filed in April). But it was not that easy to get H1 since there were so many applications that they had to go for lottery system. My Sai Maa came to my rescue again. My application was selected to be processed in the lottery system. I finally got my visa and started working in this new company. I was getting more money with work-life balance. I am so thankful to my Sai Maa to make this possible. Sai Baba always comes to your rescue whenever you call Him.
Today, I was put into a situation where one of my team mates wanted to dump something on me since it was a very hard piece to do. I prayed Sai Maa to take me out of this situation because I do not have expertise to that part of the project. I tried to push it away but she was adamant to put this on me. She said she will talk to the supervisors about who should take this piece and will let me know what happens. All this while, I was praying frantically to Sai Maa to take me out of this. I told Sai Maa that I will write my experiences on this blog if I get out of it. My Sai Maa always hears me. After a while I got to know that I was no longer to work on this piece. I was so relieved. So, I am fulfilling my promise to Sai Maa to write about all the wonderful ways my Sai Maa has helped me and takes care of me. What would I have done without Him. At the end, I want to say that just leave everything to Baba. We don’t know what He has planned for us but I am sure He will lead us to the path of love and happiness.
Since last couple of weeks, we have been having intermittent rain that has left the ground saturated especially given the fact that Houston is a marshy land with clay soil. However, on the night of 26th May 2015 (Memorial day holiday), we had such a huge storm with heavy rain of about 11inches in 1 hour. Due to saturation of the ground due to previously rain, the heavy rain of 11 inch in one hour left the rainwater to go nowhere but resulted in flooding. I leave in the apartment on the ground floor. Due to continuous heavy rain at that night, we started worrying that our apartment may start flooding. After the heavy downpour, water logging started. Every few millimetres of increase in the water logging height in front of our apartment kept increasing our worry and blood pressure. Our neighbour and we share the common walkway with a difference of about 5 feet between our front doors. Our neighbour was the first one to get hit by flooding as I saw our neighbour collecting and pouring the water that is standing in the front of our house in the adjacent garden. My plan was to join the neighbour and try to move the water away so that we can safeguard our houses from getting flooded. My husband advised me not to open the door as the water can gush into our house, which is currently held by the door. Within few minutes, the levels of water started to increase. Seeing this my husband and I were 100% sure that water will certainly enter our apartment and cause flooding. Until then I didn’t even think of Sai Baba. As it is very well known that we all go to Sai Baba out of despair.
Then suddenly I prayed to Baba and sprinkled His Udi in the front of our doorstep asking Him to help us and stop the rainwater entering into our apartment. I was very confident that now Baba will take care of us. After probably one hour, the rain stopped and so does our tension. We slept thinking about the status of flooding in front of our house. Next morning, when I opened the door, I was shocked to see that the water level was almost touching the bottom of our front door but not even a single drop of water had entered our house. Again, Baba and His Udi saved us. After sometime while cleaning the aftermath of the rain, we realized that, our doormat was missing and we started searching. Finally, my husband discovered that our doormat had swept away for about quarter mile into the parking lot. Despite so much of water that was able to swept the doormat away did not dare to cross Baba’s Udi boundary and enter our house. We learnt from the morning news that the whole city was flooded due to such a heavy rain and all the major roads were under water. But we were saved from such devastation only due to Sai Baba. This experience reaffirms my Shradda and Saburi in Sai Baba. So devotees please pray to Baba and He will take care of us at all times. Om Sai Ram.
I would like to share with all that how Baba blessed me to use my education. My brother appeared for Medical entrance exam for many times but was not selected. I asked my father that why Sri Sai Is not Helping us. My father gave me Baba’s Satcharitra and asked me to read it, that’s how i began knowing His Miracles. He gave Darshan in my dream on 7th day. The dream was, Baba Blessed Me With Higher Education. Baba appeared like a Fakir and was standing in front of our gate. I invited Him into my room. He asked what I want. I said, I want seat for my brother. Then he again said, what i want. I answered Him "Baba, whatever i study, i want to get high score”. Then He disappeared. To my faith, Baba gave seat to my brother. My brother is now a radiologist and helps poor too, and to my astonishment, i passed my graduation in Distinction. Later, i did many courses where Baba helped me to use my education for serving challenged and orphans. Whatever i did, it turned with greater awards where people keep asking how I do them, maybe not in much but as far as i can reach, my service activities spread. I remember my father’s words "Chant of God Helps us to cross oceans". Many such Miracles happened to me.
Once Baba shed Honey from His Idol, later gave Darshan in my dream that He is happy that I gave food to poor though I suffered with many financial problems. I was admitted in Hospital because of high sugar levels and doctors said it would be hard to survive. But after three days, the Great God appeared and i was out from Hospital. Even for today, my doctor says it is a Miracle. This is to raise faith and I pray to Baba’s Lotus Feet. He had also helped my daughter in finding a Good and affectionate Husband, we had many financial problems then, He say stood next to us clearing all our problems. I will share more Miracles.
