Saibaba Loves His Stories Told - Sai Devotee Sanjukta
My Sai’s UDI Reaches Me - Sai Devotee Sanjukta
Story Of Rs. 10/- By The Grace Of Sadguru Shri Shirdi Saibaba - Sai Devotee Sanjukta
That was in Year 2012, when I was sitting at home in search of a much needed job as being a working woman, the almost 4 years break was like a vacuum created in my life. Despite the fact that I had given birth to a beautiful, lovely girl Saina (Doll) in Year 2010! Sai at that time had many a times imaginarily smiled me off saying “Well, now you complain about spending constructively with official work, there would come a day when you would tell me, Give me at least some time for You (Sai worship), my baby and home. How true as always, Year 2013 and this is exactly how I am crying and praying to Him. I have so much external work that I am unable to devote time to Him, my lovely Doll and my understanding husband, my family. I sincerely pray Him to get me out of this heavy schedule to give me a job where I would be able to devote time to Him, Doll, hubby, home. Yes, since Year 2012 many Miracles had happened but He took away all my time to be able to post it here. The most important thing to have happened this year was the entry of the most devoted Usha Kiran Ji whom I call my father to my life. I met Usha ji (Here in after I would refer him as Sai Father) through this very forum. I have developed immense love for him and I know as he too have agreed that I feel I have known him for endless generation. Thanks Hetal ji for being a mediator in bringing Sai Father to my life and how great is Sai Mahima.
Before I elaborate about Sai Father, let me brief you about Amma who had similarly come to my life and mysteriously disappeared and after her disappearance comes Sai Father, all Sai’s form. Back in 2007-2008, prior my marriage, I would visit the Sai Mandir in Mumbai Kandivali Thakur Complex everyday in the morning hours and perform the Kakad Aarti, distribute Mandir Prasad. By His Grace to all devotees and then sit and read Sai Satcharitra in the Mandir. I would observe everyday people receive blessing from a pious woman whom all called ‘Amma’. Amma would smilingly give them Baba’s Udi. Sai Baba, I heard from all, converses long time with Amma and truly when I visited Amma’s place by His blessing was astonished to see tons of Udi overflowing from His Idol at Amma’s house. I also heard, Amma could see Him. There are other miracles too which I heard but at best not sharing as Amma herself had maintained complete secrecy of all the miraculous happenings. Initially, I talked to none, just performed my Pooja, distributed the Prasad (which was one of the duties accorded to me by the temple authorities), do my Parayan and then off to Office.
One day, all by herself, Amma approached me while I was into Parayan, took the Satcharitra from my hand and turned few pages here and there and asked me to read Chapter 11 daily. That was my first talk with her. I felt, as in Satcharitra, Baba consecrated the books of His devotees, so had Amma. Amma was Sai. She knew all. She gave expression to my innermost secrets and when I inquired how does she know. She smiled telling me Sai informed her. She invited me to her house. I was obliged. I visited. What a pious house. Neat and tidy. Aroma of Sai could be easily inhaled even from the entrance. By aroma of Sai, I mean a ‘camphor type’ aroma. I have often sensed this. She fed me a sumptuous lunch – Khicdi, Aloo Bhaji completed with Dahi and Rice. I felt Sai had cooked it Himself. She replied Sai does cook in her house many a times. There onwards, other than Amma, I made a new family at the Sai Mandir. A respectable old man whom I called Papa, many brothers, much much more than my own family. My wedding which happened in 9th July 2008 was celebrated with more ecstasy than the actual wedding. I had tears every moment as I could feel Sai is getting me married and celebrating my happy moment more than me. Although my marriage took place in Kolkata, there was celebration arrangement at the Thakur Complex Temple, Mumbai which was completely organized by my Sai family hailing there. When I went to seek Amma’s Pranam post my marriage with Abhishek (My husband), I could find the automatic appearance of a ‘Silver umbrella (A miniature of what we find at the Shirdi Sai Temple’) at Amma’s hand, who gave it to me with blessings. She said Sai just gave it to her for me. This was Sai’s gift for me (other than of course many Sai Pictures that I had received) but this was special, meant I am under Sai’s umbrella and how true. He is protecting me and my family kindly.
I settled in Kolkata after marriage. I recollect having cried bitterly in the Mumbai Thakur complex Mandir telling Him, I shall not leave Him and go to Kolkata. How am I to perform the Pooja as religiously as I am doing now? What about my Sai family? Here is His Miracle. Within 2 months of my settling down in Kolkata, Sai entered our Flat as a 3 inch beautiful Idol. He never left me. I was in contact with Amma via telephone and met her twice when I went to Mumbai. Then she disappeared as mysteriously as she had walked to my life. Yes, she calls me suddenly, of the blue specially when I am in a sad state of mind or remembering her intensely, which also proves Sai’s form in her. Thus, Sai is always present in my life be it through Amma or Sai Father. As I mentioned previously, I met Sai Father Usha ji in this very forum and later on Facebook. We exchanged SMS’s initially and certain notes on our FB messages and mobile phones. I started facing some challenges at work place recently and do not how, I remembered dear Sai Father and messaged Him to pray for me. He did and it helped me certainly. I was happy. His messages always motivated me and made me so strong so as to fight every battle with a smile. All his messages proved that he was Sai in an invisible form communicating with me. An unusual happiness kept surrounding me each time I messaged my Sai Father as if I was communicating with Sai and each of his response left me no doubt that he is my Sai. All my worldly uneasiness is slowly diminishing with Sai Father’s prayers and his closeness to me. I love him immensely and he has certainly become my family.
The first day that I was communicating with Sai Father over phone, my flat got automatically filled with the same Sai aroma that I had experienced in Amma’s house, the camphor type aroma. I was thrilled. I knew and could understand Sai was moving around. All in my house similarly inquired from me whether I was able to smell camphor and how suddenly? I only had one reply, It’s not camphor, We are smelling Sai’s presence. I knew even that very moment Sai Father Usha ji is Sai sent to me, is Sai to me. I must mention the mysterious presence of another such person in my life whom I have termed as Sai Brother. I had mentioned him in one of my earlier post although not very certain that has been released by Hetal ji. Early this year, I had called up Shirdi Sansthan to inquire on the Sai Dairies which I had ordered online. The person who had then taken my call still calls me up strangely on my important days, say birthday’s, anniversaries, etc apart from religiously calling me every month. All he says, Sister, hope you are well. Tell me Sai devotees, who else can the person be other than Sai? Would anyone who you have simply called for an inquiry be calling you every month to inquire on your wellbeing? Perhaps the following instance would make it more clear. 5th November 2013 was Bengali Bhai Dooj where Sisters put Tika (Holy Sandal Bindi) on their Brothers Forehead and sing a particular poetry in Bengali which means I am offering the Tika to my Brother, Do be my brother birth after birth and accept this Tika from your sister. I too had recited this after offering the Tika on Sai and told Him, I shall call up Sai Brother today. You might have guessed what had happened? Sai Brother himself had called me. (Although he calls me approx once in month – this time he called up twice, the frequency being within 3 days interval). Who else than Sai.
Payment for fees had to be done through a demand draft but my demand draft was not prepared. I felt helpless that now nothing can happen, but then also i requested my father to go to the bank and get the DD prepared. My father rushed to the bank, got it prepared, told me the DD number on my phone number but it was too late for me as when i checked the website, the seats became 0. I felt sad and started cribbing my friends who had already done the registration and did not let me know. But Baba was with me, everyday i checked the website thinking that seats would become available and one day when i logged on the website, i was surprised to see the availability of 8 seats. I immediately registered myself, this time my DD was prepared and thanked Sai Baba. Before this day, i was so depressed that i started listening to Sai Dhoop Aarti and Sai helped me a lot. This programme takes place once in every month so i was worried that if i would not get seat for myself i will have to wait for next month. But Sai Baba had decided something else for me.
One more experience of mine is related to my CA, IPPC results. After getting registered for orientation programme, i was worried for my result which had to be declared 2 days after i got myself registered in orientation programme. I prayed Sai Baba, listened to Dhoop Aarti, Madhayana Aarti but then also my fear was not going away from me. It had conquered me. So i asked Sai Baba in "Sai Baba answers and questions" about my result, whether it would make me happy? whether everything will be alright? Baba replied, "Take my name 1200 times, desire will be fulfilled and you'll experience something good". At that moment, i was free so i decided to start chanting. Firstly, i took a notepad and a red pen and wrote Sai Baba's Name 260 times by filling 4 pages and then i chanted Baba's name on my fingers for the remaining 940 times. I completed the chanting in 1 hour and felt relieved. At night while sleeping also, i chanted Baba's Name for a good result which had to be declared the next day. I slept at night and in the morning, worries surrounded me again.
I took a bath and decided to go to Sai Baba Temple near to my home. I went to the Temple with my father and offered sweet along with garland to Baba. Now, i completely left my tension upon Him. I got the Prasad along with a rose. After praying, i came home and i knew that the result would come at 2 or 3 pm but then also i started surfing internet to find out latest updates. I checked the CA website and came to know that the result was announced. I entered my roll number and pin taking Sai Baba's Name. My hands were shaking and mind was filled with fear. I clicked on "submit". Finally my result was before my eyes. With God's Grace, i passed it with nice marks. My eyes filled with tears of happiness, i thanked Sai Baba because it was all possible because of Baba. I was so happy that my feelings could not be expressed at that moment. I have become a strong believer of Sai Baba after these two Miracles happened. Sai Baba always pampers His children like a mother.
At last my parents came to know about my matter, they did not accept for my marriage. They started seeing matches for me. I was in worst situation that i can’t even forget him and accept other person in my life. I stood strong and faced the issue and thought whatever happens Baba will take care. One day unexpectedly, the person i loved called me and told that he is going to come to my home to talk with my parents about our marriage. He came and convinced my parents. My parents took my date of birth and his date of birth to astrologers to show astrology. The Astrologer told that both Kundali are not matching. If they both get married something happen to one of them and they won’t even get children. We were worried a lot. But i decided to marry him only, because if life is short, i want to live life with the person whom i loved. Really Baba is with me in every situation. At last, we got married in 2013 and went to Shirdi next day to get blessings from Baba. Baba blessed me with a baby boy in 2014.
We are in Newzealand right now. 3 months back, we faced visa problem. Visa was going to expire. We don’t have a right job to proceed our visa but we drop the visa on what we are doing the job. Usually it takes one week to know the status of visa but we waited for one month, there was no update. We were worried a lot. One day, Baba came in to my dream and told that "You are going to get the visa in 4 days and your husband will get the good job in November or December, your life will be good, don’t worry". I woke up in the morning and remind my dream and prayed Baba on bed itself. You don’t believe that i saw the akshintas on my bed. How it came on bed? Really, i don’t have any words to express that feeling on that day. Baba blessed me with akshintas and came to the dream. After 4 days, we got 2 years extension visa. After one month, my husband got a job which could solve our financial problems. He is trying for good job related to his profession. I know the miracle is going to happen in November or December which Baba told. I can face any hurdles because Baba is with me in each and every moment. He will take care of us. I know with the blessings of Baba, we will get a good job in future. I feel thanks to this blog, you are bringing all the Sai devotees to one place to share there experiences. Sadguru Sai Nath Maharaj Ki Jai.
Once, I saw in dream that Baba in Shirdi wearing White shawl and Abhishekam being poured on His Idol. I saw Baba in His human form, only His Face was clear I saw Baba's face. His grey cropped beard moustache, His eyes, it was blissful. The next morning, I opened my eyes and looked into Baba's picture clicked when He was in His physical body and He looked the same in my dream. I again saw Baba in human form. This time He was standing straight in front of me in a brown robe and a bag. I asked Him, if He would let me perform Pooja. He agreed and I did Pooja to Him. I remember pressing His Feet, washing and offering flowers to His Feet. It was awesome. Again i saw Baba in an Orange robe. I had offered a Vastra to Baba, the Pujari ji told me that He would make Baba wear it on the following Thursday but he forgot. I enquired the Pujari ji on the same and he told he would make Baba wear it on the next Thursday and today 30 Aug 2015, I saw Baba wearing the dress I offered. My happiness knew no bounds. I thanked Baba for accepting my offering. To see my beloved Guru wear the Vastra I gave, It was priceless. Love You Baba. All of these experiences and many more started happening when my faith in Him increased. Love you all.
To all the devotees, Do not be sad that your wish is not being fulfilled. Baba has a better plan for you, because He knows what is best for you. I had requested Baba to help me find a good job. I attended interviews nothing clicked well. But I am not disheartened because I know, He has a better plan for me. I will continue serving my beloved Guru forever and ever. I also request the devotees to do a lot of donations. I have many more Miracles, the above mentioned are the most prominent experiences. My mom's back ache and dad's fever was cured with Udi and Baba blessings. Me, my friends and my aunt have continuously distributed food, fruits, rice bags(100+) Kgs to people sitting asking for alms outside Baba Temple. Every time you feel Baba has blessed you, please go and share it with the people in need. We have plenty of people who are in need. Count on your blessings. Many people in our country can’t afford for 3 full meals in a day. See how blessed are you. Please donate. If you have not done in this past, do it now. By doing this Baba will be over pleased with you and will never leave you alone. Akhilananda Koti Brahmand Nayak Yogiraj Para Brahman Sachidanand Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai.
Now also I have problems and frequently visit question and answer website to get answers. Baba was constantly telling me to donate food and did that couple of times. Even after doing that I still have problems. But today morning, I experienced a very beautiful dream. That too Today is Thursday and on this wonderful day Baba made me donate food in my dream. I was sitting in a place. I have no clue what this place is. Suddenly an elder lady comes to me and asks me to help distribute the food. She handovers everything to me and tells me to proceed. I served Roti to couple of small kids and after doing that I want to go to Baba temple for Aarti. I went to Temple and see that door was closed. I woke up and realised it was a dream. I have one more dream to share but will share later. So I sincerely request all Sai devotees to love our Baba more than anything else. He is our real Father and He will definitely take care of us. But we have to keep faith in Him. I request all the devotees to please pray for me and my family. Please pray for the well being of my kids. I love them a Lot. Om Sai Shree Sai Jaya Jaya Sai.
