Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
I had already posted an experience earlier, A Couple of Sai Baba Experiences - Part 34 In my above experience, I would like to correct my typographical error of the year mentioned, and kindly read the year as 1978 instead of 1998 in the given below sentence: “During my graduation one of my friend has been to Shirdi in 1998 (It should be 1978) and gave me Shirdi Sai Baba Prasad and a Sai's Picture”. In the above experience, I was explaining how I had an enlivened vision of Sai Baba on the night at 1.30 am of Gurupurnima day i.e. on 14th July, 1992 (Tuesday) standing at my door threshold. I could only narrate about Baba’s physical appearance, His facial expression and clothing, but could not illustrate the same with an appropriate image as I could not find one such at that time of narration. Recently, I could find a couple of Baba’s images on internet which were compatible and portraying Baba as precisely as seen in my vision. I made some minor changes with painting tool on my computer to go well with my vision. The image of Baba is the same as I had seen Him in vision, but for the blessing hand and a smile on His face. In my vision, He was standing with His hands down and His facial expression was normal. I am attaching two Baba’s photos, kindly publish at least one of them.
Sacred Neem tree leaf dropped directly in my right palm. I want to give a brief account of another incident which occurred in 2013 in Shirdi. I and my husband went to Shirdi in 2013. After the Darshan of Baba in Samadhi Mandir, we came out through the exit door towards Gurusthan, for Padukas Darshan. We were on the way to Padukas, I was walking normally with my husband. Surprisingly, a Neem leaf from the sacred Neem tree dropped directly into my right palm. It was as if someone has politely placed the leaf in my palm. I never presumed it was a Neem leaf, I opened my fist and to my disbelief it was a Neem leaf in my right palm which baffled both of us. I got a gift of a Neem tree twig on my wedding anniversary. At least once a year we visit Shirdi to have Baba’s Darshan, which I consider it as Baba’s call.
Recently, we had been to Shirdi from 25th June to 27th June 2015, to take Baba’s Darshan on our 34th wedding anniversary i.e. on 25th June. Usually we go to Gurusthan after Baba’s Darshan in the Samadhi Mandir, we too went along the steel fence of Gurusthan to take Padukas Darshan under the sacred Neem tree, after exiting the Mandir through the exit door. Astonishingly, a Neem tree twig from the sacred Neem tree fell just in front of me. The twig had 8 leaves and was green. Apart from the twig a few yellow and green loose leaves dropped in front of me. I was absolutely spellbound for a second. Then I stooped down to pick them up. No sooner I picked the Neem twig than the security person and a few fellow devotees who were on the other side of the fence thronged around me and stretched their hands to get at least a leaf. I gave the twig to the security; he plucked 5 leaves and gave me back the twig with 4 leaves. And the other loose leaves which I got gave it to the other devotees. I thought whatever God gives us should be shared, my husband who was with me was unhappy with the sharing of leaves, I just ignored his expression. The security person was repeatedly saying “Maa ji app bahut kismat vale ho” (“Mother, you are very fortunate to get the Neem twig”). Another security person, who was sitting there on a stool too joined him and other devotees repeated the same. I felt very happy to get Baba’s blessing and gift on my wedding anniversary. I was overwhelmed with the incident. I took a Photo of the Neem twig after going to my hotel room. I am appending the same photo of the Neem twig which was destined to me, kindly publish.
Whenever I am entangled in turbulent situations and unable to wade through, I read Shri Sai Satcharitra or Gurucharitra, which bring solace and give me relief from the trauma. It is my personal experience that reading Shri Sai Satcharitra, is a panacea as it alleviates the agony of the tormented devotee. I quote an incident of coincidence. I was subscribed to http://www.saibabasays.com/ and every day I get a message to my inbox and this message always coincides with the quote/the moral/ the context/story in the chapter of Shri Sai Satcharitra I read the respective day with absolute engrossment. For instance I was reading Chapter-VII on 16th July 2015, I got the message to my mail from saibabasays.com as: My devotees sufferings, I consider my own. “To everybody Sai Baba showed plague boils on His thighs and said, “Look how I have to suffer for my devotees. My devotees’ sufferings, I consider my own." The chapter-VII in Shri Sai Satcharitra had the same contents as the message in www.saibabasays.com. Baba’s presence is sensed, whenever we resort to His holy feet with unwavering faith. Despite the fact that, I am still facing failures and disappointments, involuntarily I take recourse of Baba’s Feet. I find consolation to my distressed existence. Always my mind contemplates, that why the sincere and principled never go unpunished and the fraudulent and dishonest people go unpunished. I raised my sons to lead a life with morals and honesty, they are living an honest and sincere life, but they too are facing the same hurdles and failures. I pray Baba to refine the wicked and protect the guileless and unfortunate people. Baba, I am tired of my interminable problems and I am totally exhausted to undergo more failures. Please, forgive our sins as You say, “You must bear the fruit-good or bad of your past actions”. I have suffered enough till today. Let me prostrate myself before You and let not I lose the sight of Your feet, let YOUR HOLY FEET be my sole refuge, till my last gasp. Please bestow strength to all of us to sustain faith in You, even in adverse circumstances. Om Sai Ram.
Just like the way He pulls all other devotees or their families, He pulled us to His Lotus Feet. It all started when my mom a got a dream, In which a Fakir blessed her everything will be fine (In Telugu-Antha Shubham avugaka). Very next day my mom told this experience with her brother (My Mama) and explained how the Fakir looked. My mama told her the Fakir is our beloved Baba. After getting married and coming to my father’s house, Sai was already there, but to test her. She has gone through lot of pain and struggle due to my dad’s mom and his sisters. After two long years, Sai relived from this hell in his own style. My dad family was a combined family with ten people (Including my Mother), and these people gave her lot of trouble (Especially my dad’s mother and sister). My dad used to work very hard for the entire family, but he don't have knowledge of finances. At the end of 3rd year, my parents have decided to visit Shiridi for Talaneelalu. But my dad’s family didn't like the idea and didn't support it. But my father and mother visited Shiridi for my/my brother’s talaneelalu. After coming back from Shiridi, My father’s family kicked him out of the house without any support (Like house or land). After long discussions and Panchayat, they finally gave 2.5 acres of land and 70,000 debt (All of his other brothers got good amount of Cash as their share). One good thing is that my mom got relived from the harassment. With the God’s Grace we are now well settled compared to my dad’s relatives who troubled us for so long. It was only because of our Lord we are in a better position.
I am a average student with just 60% marks. But with the Lord’s Grace, I got good rank in the management entrance exam and got a chance to study in one of the best management schools in Andhra Pradesh. It was complete turn around for me. It was very important for me to get selected in the campus selections itself, because if I come out from the campus without any job it was very difficult to get a decent job due to recession. But with the Sai's Grace, I got a job in a telecom giant with very good pay package even with the average performance in the selection process. For some reasons, I didn't continue my job and changed couple of jobs and finally decided to move into IT. So I left my job and started looking for a job in IT. Many of my friends were searching for an IT job from long back none succeeded. For me Sai is always there. Just a month before my Birthday, He gave a Job with one of the Oldest IT companies in India. Thanks Thathayya. Love You So Much.
I was coming close to 30 and my mom was worried about my marriage. Though I am having a good job and getting very good salary it was very difficult for us to get a good match as we are not well settled family. My family still was dependent on me, so most of the girl’s parents liked me and my job, but they didn't like my family. Another problem was with my father's brothers, they have created lot of nuisance in my village, it was also affecting few matches. So I prayed Baba and started Satcharitra Parayan. Just after the completion of Parayan, we got a very good match. I feel that she is the gift my Lord gave for this year’s birthday. Love You Sai. All of you guys know the competition for H1B visa. Most of the people try through different consultancies. They will also try to apply through different consultancies (2-5) to increase their chance of getting picked in the lottery. I have also applied through one consultancy and mine got picked in the lottery. Most of friends suggested to go with 2-3, but I was confident that our Lord will be there to take care of my Luck and proved that He is always there with us. Though I am still struggling with financial and other issues, I am confident that Thathayya will take care of these issues. It is just a matter of time.
Unknowingly, I got up and took mobile opened Sai Baba app and a number got in my mind. When I was about to type number, I don't know why I typed another number and the answer came, "After surrendering to Sai Baba, work will be done. You will have the pleasure of work fulfilment. You will pass in the examination. You will get job." My worries were gone. I became little bit normal. I surrendered to Baba and left everything to Baba. My life is going through rough phase. Every day one problem and there is no peace of mind for me. So many tensions, worries, pending works and so on. From so many days, i am trying to read Satcharitra but couldn't start at all. Today after Madhayana Aarti, I took Satcharitra Book and started. I started reading, asking nothing. No wish nothing. While reading, I felt so good and happy. I smiled and laughed. I realised my mistakes and said sorry to Baba. I went through a line "Baba words are equal to God's words". If anything is said by Baba then it will be done for sure. I asked Baba about my love, I wrote chits, One-He will marry me and another one-He will not marry me. I said Baba, i will not pick up chit three times. I will pick up only once and it should be Your decision of my life. Baba first said No, i could not accept it. I kept again and three times Baba answered, he will marry me. But still i am not happy because firstly Baba said he will not marry me. Baba said two answers and made me confused.
I prayed with firm faith for the last time saying. Your answer will be one decision. I will ask this for the one last time only Sai Maa. Please forgive me for my mistakes, I want my love and I want to live with him. Please shower Your blessings Sai Maa. I kept chits and removed one chit. Baba answered, he will marry me. I got satisfied with it and I got mental peace. Before also Sai Maa said, but I never got satisfaction. But this time it is something different feeling. I smiled, laughed seeing Baba and thanked Him. No matter what happens I will get married to my love because Baba said it. Baba blessed me with him. I just need to be patient and have faith. I realised I lost patience in these 3-4 months and fought with my love, mum and everyone. I became so impatient and worried for financial problems and lost peace of mind totally. But today after reading Satcharitra, I started being with patience, love and got peace of mind. Thank You Sai Maa. I have my semester exams in a week. Instead of preparing for exams, I left it to Baba. I don't care even I fail but i want to read Satcharitra and thus I started reading. Now i am so peaceful and happy even though I had so many problems and tensions. It's all because of Sai Maa. Thank You so much Sai Baba. Thank You for allowing me to read Satcharitra this time. Please help me to complete it Sai Maa and get prepared for my semester exams. I am so thankful and grateful to You Sai Maa. Koti Koti Koti Pranam Sai Maa. Anantha Koti Brahmand Nayak Rajadhi Raja Sadguru Sainath Maharaja Ki Jai. Jai Sai Ram. Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai. Om Sai Ram.
I reached hospital, there I saw my sister and gave Udi Prasadam to my sister. I was heartily happy and memorize the incident in Sai Satcharitra, Chapter 33 (Nanasaheb daughter was pregnant and was suffering from labour pains, Nanasaheb tried all remedies but they proved in vain, he then remembered Baba and invoked His aid. Baba send Udi for Nanasaheb’s daughter and thus she gave birth to a healthy baby). My Sister also got safe normal delivery, her healthy girl baby is also good now. Sai Baba bless my sister like Nanasaheb’s daughter. Our Lovely Sai Maa send Udi Prasad to me for my sister same like Ramgirbuva. Thank You Sai Maa for such marvellous miracle. My full Faith And Patience will never end till my last breath. I surrender completely my sister family to Sai Maa’s Lotus Feet. I am praying You Baba please be with my sister, brother-in-law, nephew and niece and give them long and happy life and be with them, protect them and please keep them safely in Your heart. I am sure and having full Faith from my Sai Maa that our Sai Maa is a protector for my sister family. Love You Sai Maa.
Recently my brother-in-law lost his job. My sister was pregnant on that time and they were very tight in financial problem. My brother-in-law tried many interviews but no response from HR. My brother-in-law is having full faith on Baba. He started reading Satcharitra with full faith and what a Miracle. He got call from one MNC company for job opening, He attended an interview and got selected for that company. Thank You Sai Maa for this Miracle. Baba, You not only gave job to my brother-in-law also You gave food and life to that kids and their parents. Please bless that family with long and healthily life. I never forget this miracle till my life end. Thank You Sai Baba for saving my sister’s family.
Once i was crying into my pillow and then when i was reading this blog, i found a devotees experience with consoling word that made me strong enough. My Sai Maa promised everything will be alright after Ram Navami and after that gradually my work pressure reduced and till now i Would definitely say that it is My Dear-most Sai Maa who made a change in me as well as my manager. Whenever i look up to my Sai for any Problem, He answers with "Why fear when I am here". Today I was trying to cross the road to reach the bus-stop. I saw a bus coming with sweet Sai Maa's Picture and i thought if i could cross this road i will be able to go with my Sai Maa. The bus didn't leave. It waited there in the bus stop. Then I went and got into the bus. And just like that after a minute or two the bus started and i went with my Sai Maa. It may seem to be simple but small things matter and it’s like an assurance to me from my Sai Maa that He is always with me seeing to my needs (Small or Big) and holding me tightly. I am always grateful to Him and want to be under His Wing Forever. I Request All Devotees to Trust Him and not question His decision. He is so Loving and Caring and always around us. He loves the each and every one of us despite our mistakes in our Life. Ananta Koti Brahmand Nayak Raajadhiraj Yogiraj Para Brahma Shree Sachidanand Sadguru Sai Nath Maharaj Ki Jai Om Sai Sri Sai Jai Jai Sai.
