Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
Sai My Father - Sai Devotee Arathi)
First Experience is, It has been a habit since my wedding that we (my sister and myself) try and spend Diwali together with our mother wherever she is, be it our hometown (Nagpur) or my place (Delhi) or my sister’s place (Bangalore). Last year i.e. 2013 it was Nagpur. My mother got the car that we had back home serviced and had kept it ready for me to use when I visit. It was a day before Diwali that my sister and myself had decided to make some purchase and after purchasing visit my dentist with whom I had an appointment (Generally I take an appointment whenever I visit home as I had been going to her for a couple of years and I trust her completely). That very day there was this 6th ODI cricket match going on between India–Australia at VCA ground, Nagpur. After shopping, while we came and stopped for a red signal on one of the busiest squares of the city, my car suddenly fell silent and no matter what I did, it wouldn’t start. Thankfully that very signal had a petrol pump where we pushed our car to and fuelled the car thinking that the tank must have gone empty although the indicator did not signal an empty fuel tank. The car still wouldn’t start. The mechanic at the petrol pump tried his bit but nothing happened. I requested the petrol pump guys to allow me keep my car parked there for sometime while I get my mechanic, they reluctantly agreed to it as it was Diwali and they did not want a car to be parked at their pump fearing any mishap. I tried calling up my mechanic some 10 times but he did not respond, I tried calling another mechanic that I knew but again no response. I checked my watch and I had exactly 40 minutes to my dentist’s appointment (It was very important to me as her clinic would not be open for another couple of days and I would be back to Delhi by then).
I frantically started calling a couple of my friends, few of them were out of town for Diwali and the few who were there had all gone to watch the match at the VCA ground! Now I was seriously tensed and did not know how to manage all by myself and it was then that I called out to our beloved Baba. I immediately took His Name and said ‘Baba please help me and save me from this situation. I can’t leave my car here and neither can I miss my appointment. Please come and help me’. I immediately took an auto home, dropped my sister home and headed out in the same auto to find a mechanic. It was getting darker and I could not find a single mechanic, as it was Diwali time, shops were getting closed earlier than usual. Then out of the blue, I still don’t know why I asked the auto driver to take a certain road and we both kept looking for a mechanic when I suddenly asked the auto driver to stop, I thought I had seen someone sitting on a chair outside a tin shed in a small lone plot with wild bushes all around. I got down and walked over to the gentleman, he was frail, old with a white beard and was wearing spectacles. He was wearing a very dirty shirt and pyjamas. Unlike what he looked like he had a very calm demeanor. I asked him “Uncle do you repair vehicles? My car broke down at such and such square and I don’t know what is wrong, would you be able to help me?’ He saw me kindly and asked- “what happened to the car? Is it the battery? What kind of a noise is the car making?” I said, it did not make a creaking noise and I am sure it is not the battery. It did not make a click sound that generally happens when the battery is not charged” He just said “hmmm, wait”.
He then went inside and quickly picked a couple of things and put them in a small bag and said ‘ok now take me to your car‘. I quickly took him to the car and he, in to time fixed it like magic. I asked him what had happened and he said ‘Why don’t you start the car first and see if it works?’ I did as per instructions and Lo, Behold!! the car started! I was elated and thanked him profusely and asked him if he would want me to drop him back to his place for which he replied in spectacular English –“Of course. Please drop me back will you, with a lovely smile on his face. I paid the auto driver and went ahead to drop him back. When I dropped him back, he just asked me one question-“How did you know that I was here? There is no board or vehicles being repaired or anything that remotely gives you a clue or resembles a mechanic’s shop” All that I could say at that point was –‘I don’t know uncle’. He just smiled and went back to sit on the chair and I thought to myself- I did not want to take that road as I knew there would be no mechanic on that road. I had never seen one in all these years! I was then able to visit my dentist on time and when I narrated the entire episode to my mother and my sister, she insisted that we visit Him again the next day and we did visit the same place the next day and enquired as well but no one knew anything about that wonderful angel that I had encountered that day. It gave us Goosebumps and still does whenever we think about it, that it was Baba Himself that day who had come to my rescue as I had invoked His blessings and sought out His help in that hour where no one was there to help me. So true to His promises- ‘Why fear when I am here’ Baba took care of me.
First with the help of Baba, we booked out Auditorium as per management fixed date without any issues, Need to tell one thing, in our company getting approval and payment to vendors takes more time, I told Baba that getting approval and advance payment process there should not be any delay or issues. Day by day, I was little tensed as the date of the program was getting near, but I knew that I have put all my left all the things in the Hands of Baba to take care, so felt easy to breath. Slowly all the things started moving, meet all the vendors, got the quotations and negotiated with vendors and sent it for approval, every mail which was sent for approval for approved without any delay, and only one thing which was worried is food vendor, the quotation given was high, so I was asked by my boss to send the menu and he discussed with me and altered the menu and asked me to get quote for that and he asked me to get second vendor quote also, so we got the quote for the same menu with first vendor and second vendor, but the second vendor quote was less than the first vendor, we asked the first vendor to matched this quote but he was not able to do it, and finally I sent mail to our boss mentioning both the cost, and finally our boss asked us to go with the second vendor, actually I was tensed because we knew the first vendor because he did catering for last year, this second vendor we know him but we did not have experience with him, so I left everything in the hands of Sai Baba to take care.
Finally, the June 15th has arrived and I prayed to Sai Baba and left home as usual. Actually the programme was in the evening 4 p.m. but we need to make all the things ready right from Shamina at food court, and lights arrangements, back drop and stage arrangements, everything was set and we have made breakfast and lunch arrangements for all participants everything went on very well without any issues by the grace of Sai, finally time was running out and we received our chairman and his family. The guests and all our company employees, everything was going good without any issues, the program started and speeches were given by our guests and chairman and we had cultural program. I was in tension I do not know how to handle crowd of 1800 employees, we had divided our food court, into ladies, gents and guests separate counters, all the arrangements were ready, we had only 10 to 15 minutes dinner to be started, suddenly we had small flying ants in the food court. Slowly it started increasing and it was falling in the food, I was very upset and prayed to Sai Baba for 2 minutes, why You are testing me, all the things right from morning everything was good, why this tension, please Baba make this flying ants move away without any issues.
After five minutes suddenly all the flying ants were reduced and when the guest were about to come to dinner place there were no single flying ants, all of them went away, there was no sign of them, It was Sai Baba’s grace and miracle. The dinner went very well without any shortage, all of them who had food gave us good feedback and all of them were happy. Finally the guests and chairman family started back to hotel, we also got good feedback from our chairman and his family, and all senior management. Jai Sai Ram with all Baba’s blessings the programme came to an end everything was successful, I had good feedback from the sr. management. I finally thanked our Sai Baba for His wonderful blessings and who made this programme grand success. Jai Sai Ram Baba please be with us bless us and take care all of us. Dear Hetal ji, Thanks for your wonderful services to Lord Sai Baba.
Now it's time for my final which is done by Dubai RTA and the ratio of passing is very low. Even an experienced person who is driving from 20 years also had to give many attempts to pass from RTA. I was nervous but always prayed to Baba to give me confidence, I always followed Baba's teachings like helping the poor and the needy by feeding them or giving money when required, and I did this more during this season as it is Ramadan time. I read from here doing Naam Smaran of Baba in one experience and started doing that. I told Baba, I will do 10,000 times but as I was doing my inner voice told me that I do 90,000 as 9 is a Baba number. Also I did one week Satcharitra reading and always believed that Baba will help me pass my test. Finally the test day, I went to Temple in the morning at 5:30 and did Abhishek for Baba and I have immense faith in this Abhishek as we are also allowed to give Abhishek to Baba and I was very sure however it is I will not fail as I have touched the holy Idol of Baba in shrine, and trust me my firm faith never failed. For the test I do not remember any time being nervous, it was not me but Baba driving for me. The whole time I have been chanting Om Sai Ram and when I got my result, I was choked with happiness that I passed in the first attempt which is still unbelievable. Nobody I know have passed in the first attempt and they are all super confident that me.
Om Sai Ram, my Baba really did Miracle is what I can say. I got the result and rushed back to Temple and offered a rose garland to my Sai, came out of the Temple and saw a fakir sitting there near the Temple premises who had worn a long Kafni. I always used to pray during these days that I read so many people are getting Your Darshan in person or feel Your presence, please bless me also with that and needless to say when I saw this fakir I could think only of Sai , I gave him 20 dhs. not sure if he will accept but he happily took it and when I went to wear my foot wear I felt he called me, I went back again to Baba and gave 100 dhs do not know why it seemed like Baba was taking it from me, he told ''Allah Acha Karega (God will do well)" which were the same lines when I opened in Satcharitra randomly and read. I could not believe myself that Baba gave me Darshan and blessed me and still was thinking, may be or may be not and then I opened my phone I got a message with Baba Picture saying "I Have No shape but I take one for you that too, in the same shape you want to see Me" my joy knew no bounds. Om Sainathaya Namaha. Baba once again proved to me that firm faith is all He wants and He will fulfil all our wishes.
Sai Sai, I normally used to work in office from morning 9:45-55 am to max nearly 7-7:20 pm (on an average). Things were challenging but still smooth. Then suddenly, I started losing on being on track due to personal reasons. No excuses! I had to pay heavy price for it. Today it's 14-07-2015. I had just got relief. But from nearly 10th of June to the next one month I used to toil for 13-14 hours/day which was sudden, full of aerodynamic, high octane pressure at times, inhuman but I remembered Baba and His teachings in every moment as much was desired by Baba, kept my cool, discovered opportunities amongst challenges and thus was rewarded twice through Baba by my Boss. The ordeal has ended only with Baba's Grace and Baba created all this to take me altogether to a different level. Baba kept me showing His presence as in the month of June 2015, 5 of my experiences got published here. One of them on my Birthday and 2 were back to back. I was also facing a huge turmoil personally and financially, Baba settled all that. I knew it when Baba came in person in the form of a stranger, told me His name and told me as to where does He work and that is all a pure Leela of Baba. Keep donating food to helpless, needy and poor, take care of them as much as possible and Baba will be most pleased. Sarve Bhavantu Sukhina, Sarve Santu Niramaya, Sarve Bhadrani Pashyantu, Maa Kashid Dukhbhagbhavet (Bow to Shree Sai Baba, Peace to be all).
I started doing the same and in my 3rd week I don’t know why but I am really afraid of something, something making me to fear so I couldn’t even sleep so I told my mom that I will join her while sleeping and she told ok and in the middle of the night I shouted and she woke me and asked what happened, actually I had a dream that someone is killing me. I really got afraid and worried because I couldn’t sleep. My mom applied Udi and told me to sleep and I prayed Baba, please bless me to sleep I want to sleep. I don’t know what sin I did but all of sudden, I am afraid of something which never happened in my life. Later I slept somehow and then I realized may be Baba is telling something through this dream or taking out some bad incidents from my life. I trust my Sai fully, He is the one whom I trust and share, I have full faith that He will one day show His blessings both in my career and my personal life at the right time. Om Sai Ram May Sai bless everyone and I request all Sai devotees to have Patience and Faith.
Today I was at most state of depression due to torture I had been facing for five months that I wanted to run away somewhere. I was crying to Sai to save me. I cried lot to save me. I was helpless crying in vain but from nowhere suddenly a truck carrying Sai Idols and playing Bhajan came and stood near my house. I realised Baba came to save me and I got peace of mind that Sai is with me though I will face this problem I will not feel to run away because Sai is now with me. I know He will slowly cure my problems and I will pray to Him with full devotion and patience. God tested me but seeing me cry He came. I was shocked and such Miracle saved me. Please be with us Sai all throughout our life and help us face all those hurdles with Your blessing. I have done mistakes, please help me to show right path and take care of my parents whom I love lot and my brothers. Om Sai Ram.
