Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
We performed Satya Narayana Swamy vrat at home and prayed to lord to grant us children as we just started to try for children after 5 years of marriage. Just after 2 months, we were so excited when we found that I was pregnant for the first time. Even before getting pregnant, I got a dream where I saw a 6-7 year old boy calling me ‘Amma’ and asking me about something to which I was answering. In next few days, I took a home pregnancy test before my period date as I was having pregnancy symptoms where I tested +ve. We were so happy and thanked Baba for getting conceived, but the following couple of days I had slight bleeding. I was scared and I thought I was having a miscarriage and I was dejected. I did not get gyenic appointment quickly so I prayed to Baba, to please not let this happen and protect my unborn child.
The same night I got a dream where some middle aged man was scolding a 15 year old boy to stay strong and not become weak like this. He scolded for some time for which the boy was just listening. I was also there and was pleading the middle aged man not to be so harsh on the kid. The dream ended and next day morning I thought this dream might be an indication that Baba wants to stop the miscarriage. The following week, I went to my first prenatal appointment and they confirmed my pregnancy and I told them that the bleeding has stopped now. They told me to watch out for any bleeding as still there was a chance of miscarriage till 20 weeks of pregnancy. The following week, we went to Satya Narayana Swamy temple and I prayed to lord Narayan to gift me something to indicate that this child is his Prasad. Just then, the temple priest called us for teerth Prasad and randomly selected a coconut and gave it to me. Priest was pleasantly surprised to see that the coconut he gave me has grown a flower in it. He said we were lucky to get that coconut and said he doesn’t often see those coconuts while giving Prasad. I got my confirmation from the lord and we were ecstatic. I had confidence that everything will go well and this pregnancy will be a smooth ride. But I was wrong. Everything was going good, I was feeling pretty healthy. I reached 20 weeks milestone of my pregnancy where the chances of miscarriage were low.
We went to my 20 weeks prenatal visit which also consisted of my first ultra sound on the baby’s condition and growth. We went with joyful mood and I was very confident that everything will be good. The ultrasound technician started the ultrasound. They checked everything heart, abdomen, other development etc. She confirmed that it was a boy (I reside in USA, so they reveal the gender before only) and I was so happy that my dreams were coming true. She was continuously talking and updating us how everything was good. Then when she came to the baby’s kidneys, she was silent. I could not understand why she was silent and I asked her what was going on. She told that she was seeing some extra fluid in both the kidneys and they were enlarged and this is not normal. I got the shock of my life and was in confusion about how could this happen to us. Especially when I got so many positive indications about this pregnancy. The next 10 mins I could barely understand what she was talking as I could not hear anything due to utter disappointment and sadness. She said 10-20% of pregnancies have this condition and especially if it’s a boy. Next we met the doctor and she said not to stress out too much about the kidney issue and she assured us that in some cases it may resolve itself during pregnancy or in the first few years of the child’s life. We left the hospital in a sad mood. The day which was supposed to be so exciting watching the baby for the first time turned in to a day of sadness and confusion.
I came home and started searching online about this condition. It only increased my worry and did not help. Online it was also mentioned that this condition might be an indication that the child may have genetic abnormality (Down Syndrome etc). My worry and fear multiplied several times and I was feeling helpless. I went to pooja room and literally cried my heart out. I fought mentally with Baba and Satya Narayan Swamy and pleaded them to cure this kidney issue in the womb itself by my next visit (which was in 1 month). I applied udi on my tummy and forehead. Even before all this happened I decided to read Satcharitra 9 times, once per month throught out my pregnancy. Now after receiving this news that there was something wrong with the baby, I decided to read Satcharitra more often. Like this my pregnancy was continuing. Daily I was praying and reading Satcharitra as often as I can. My husband and I started 9 Thursday vrat regarding this kidney issue of my unborn baby. In the next prenatal visit, I was hoping to get good news that this issue has resolved. But in ultrasound they found out that the fluid has increased in each kidney. Literally I was in tears and we came home. I again fought, pleaded, cried near Baba’s photo. I read Satcharitra more frequently after my work hours. I was not getting enough sleep but still I wanted to continue parayana in the hope that we could hear good news on next ultrasound. Like this after every ultrasound (every month) we were not getting any +ve news about the kidney issue getting resolved automatically. We thought may be god is punishing for our past deeds and we have to bear this. As I was scared for any genetic issues for the baby, I requested my doctor to perform any test on me to find out if there was indeed any down syndrome or other genetic abnormality. She scheduled me for a prenatal test which was 97% accurate finding out any genetic issues. She also said all these tests might indicate false +ves as well. I gave my blood for this test and waited patiently for 15 days for the results but these 15 days were the most toughest waiting period in my life.
I called the doctors office multiple times if my results came but there was no answer regarding the results. Finally they gave me a call and said there was some mistake in naming the blood collection bag and they were unable to test my blood. They apologized and asked me to take the test again. I was very angry with them and told them that these 15 days I was in extreme anxiety and now because of them I had to wait anxiously for another 15 days. I gave the test and again the same painful waiting period. After 1 week, I got a call from my doctor on a Thursday. I was very afraid to even pick the call, but I answered the call. My doc confirmed that there was no genetic abnormality. I really thanked Baba for giving me this good news on a Thursday. I was relieved little bit though the kidney issue was still in our worries. Finally I decided not to worry about the kidney issue anymore and leave it to Baba. Again I was continuing my pregnancy like this, praying and doing parayana. I was worried but not as much as before. I finally left everything to Baba. Again at 32 weeks ultrasound, the technician was checking the kidneys and she said the fluid is still there but it was not increasing which is good. But she was again silent for the remainder of the ultrasound. As I know silence is not a good indication, I knew something was not good. She said she needs to talk to the doctor and will come back. Just imagine the anxiety me and my husband suffered in that room. After 10 mins the doctor came and started talking to us. She said everything looked great (baby’ growth etc) but she told us that she was seeing an enlarged umbilical cord (condition called Umbilical vein varix) where it attaches to the baby at the tummy. She said this condition is very rare (1 in 2000 pregnancies) and the possibilities could be death of the baby in the womb as oxygen flow can be shut off at any time to the baby if a blood clot forms in the cord due to enlargement. When she mentioned the word ‘death’ my ears went deaf. I did not understand a single word after that. She told my husband that they will schedule weekly ultrasounds from now on to monitor the condition closely. If they see the blood clot, they will deliver the baby immediately. We were worried as I was just at 32 weeks and still 8 weeks to go. If they deliver the baby that quickly then the baby would be of poor health as he would be born prematurely.
For the next few weeks we were in depression. We did not even talk to the baby in the womb scared of getting too much emotionally attached to him. I questioned Baba why all this was happening to us. Especially after doing parayana so many times, 9 Thursdays week vrat and all prayers etc etc. I asked him what is the use of losing my sleep and spending my time in reading his leelas. I said to him that other people enjoy their pregnancies without doing a single pooja and taking full time rest. I fought with him mentally that other women’s fate is better than mine. Then I opened Sai Question and Answers and typed a number pleading him to talk to me. I got the following message. “Death will be avoided. Remember Sri Sai Baba” After reading this I got confidence that Baba will take care of my son and will not allow any harm to the baby. I strongly believed that he will keep my baby alive in the womb. Then after that, I opened this Shirdi Sai Baba experiences website and opened a random experience to find solace for my current situation. I happened to open an experience posted by Sai Sister regarding Sai Baba protecting her pregnancy. After reading that experience I was literally in tears. It really touched my heart as she mentioned how many times she suffered miscarriage but still hold on to baba with faith. She even mentioned that she read Satcharitra weekly parayans continuously for the whole pregnancy. I thought Baba gave me an answer for my question to him that why I only have to read Satcharitra like this losing my sleep while others enjoy. I wish you all read the below experience if you have some time. Sai Baba Saved From Deadly Disease and Blesses With Child And coincidentally this experience was posted on Nov23rd, 2013 which is precisely the exact date when I got conceived. After these 2 indications, I again left everything to Baba’s feet and his will. I got peace which I lacked for all this months. In my 9th month from when we found out the umbilical vein issue, I continuously did 3 weekly parayans. On Guru Purnima day, in question answers site, I got a message as “Do not sleep at night, there is a danger of untimely death. Let one night pass then you will get success” Whole night I did not sleep, I kept praying to baba till next morning. I felt relieved as I was able to be awake for the whole night sitting straight especially with my big belly. By baba’s grace only it was possible as previous day I was having pain in my lower abdomen. I did not have pain on Guru Purnima night. I took rest the following day. Same time I started my 4th parayan. I went to my 38th week prenatal visit. They checked me and said my labor has started and admitted me in hospital. I was admitted on Wednesday and by baba’s blessing, I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy on Thursday morning. I cannot thank enough Baba for keeping his promise and keeping my baby boy alive in the womb. By god’s grace he doesn’t have any genetic abnormalities or other issues. Today I went for my child’s kidney ultrasound after 2 weeks he is born. We were afraid that they would say he needs antibiotics or a surgery. By baba’s blessing we found an amazing Pediatric Urologist. Finally we got the good news that his kidney issue is minor and not bad at all. The doctor said as it is mild, it might resolve itself soon. He said to follow up after 6 months and there is no need for immediate treatment and invasive procedure. Dear readers, this pregnancy has been a roller coaster ride for us. Without Baba, I would have slipped in to depression by now or have become mad due to stress and anxiety. He literally protected my unborn child and blessed us with a beautiful baby boy on a Thursday. This gift of his, we can never forget in this lifetime. He made me read his Satcharitra so many times and gave me a chance to wash out my previous karma for which I had to suffer. I am sure everything will be alright with my son and Baba’s blessings will be with him. I say this because whenever I ask him about my son, he just says ‘Remember Sri Sai, Everything will be alright’. So dear devotees never lose hope and please hold on to him with full faith. He will surely bless you all. Satcharitra and his feet are the only solutions to any problems in this world. Thank you for reading my experience and hope it gives strength to people who need it. May Baba protect all babies in this world. Om Sai Ram.
I have been a devotee of sai baba since 5years. I have seen and experienced so many miracles right from the beginning till today. Recently I was too much scared for my examination results. I have passed because of Baba. After exams I have attended an intern interview. I prayed Baba that I should get intern. But I dint do the interview well. I was too upset and was praying Baba continuously. Meanwhile I started doing nine week vrat right after exams. On Thursday morning I got a call call from company that I have got selected for internship. I was on cloud nine. It's because of Baba, only Baba. I am pretty much sure that I didnt do well though I am the only person who has got the intern. So I wanted to share this experience. Sorry for being late Baba. Thanks much for everything that you gave me and things that you gonna give me. Please be my side always and take care of me and my family. Sorry if I have done anything wrong please don't leave me. I need you always with me Baba. Om Sai Ram.
In 2013 February I had been to doctor for the regular blood test and she said that we need the thyroid test to be done as well. Then the thyroid was confirmed and she asked me to do the ultra sound test in which there were nodules. I was very scared and upset. Thinking I thought I should go to a homeopathic and found a doctor from Hyderabad near our suburb. I called her and she asked me to come. When I went to her she said we can treat and not to worry. I was relieved and started medication. I religiously took the medicines and after every six months I had to take the ultra sound test to see if they have been reduced. I was simultaneously praying to Baba. Being a Baba devotee I needed nobody's advice. I was reading Sai sat charita everyday and also used to do Sai parayaan i.e. Completing within a week whenever I feel I should do. But after the tests every six months some how they did not disappear as quickly as I wanted. This made me feel nervous and my anxiety was when will this go away. I took the doctors appointment only on Thursday and that week I would do my Satcharita parayaan reading and completing within a week. The day of doctor visit I would first go to Baba temple and then to Vinayaka temple pray and then go to the tests. This gave me good results with Baba's blessing. I had faith and trust in Baba. Also I would have some Udi mixed in water every Thursday. I would tell Baba this will be cured by the power of your Udi and by medication. Baba I want you to cure this as only you have the shakthi/power to melt away and become clear. After nearly two and half years of medication finally today doctor said that nothing to worry and all disappeared and normal. I could not believe my ears. I was in tears and thanked and kissed Baba. Thanks Baba as You are taking care of us everyday. All I ask you Baba is good health and happiness. I already finished one Parayaan last week and now I had the practice of doing one more Saptah again after the test. Will do that also. Thanks Baba. My advice to all is to pray to Baba everyday and have faith in him. Our duty is to do sewa to Baba in any form and also please devotees we have to follow instructions as per Satcharita. I mean we have to respect every person with love and not hurt anybody. Only doing Pooja / prayer to Baba is not enough. Being a good human being is very important in addition to praying, visiting temples or merely reading Satcharita. Thank you Baba for this miracle today which I will never forget in my life. Thank you so much. Om Sai Ram.
