Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
I work as a consultant and advise clients on various issues through financial models. While I am otherwise hands on with the math of a financial model, Tax is my weakness and I still do not have a good grip over it as a subject in spite of being in this field for a few years now. Coming to my experience, we were looking at finalizing the report of a client and as the due date for deliverable arrived, I was scared for my partner review as I didn’t want my partner to raise queries on the tax computation of the client. With full faith in Sai, I handed over my report to my partner for review. I sit right outside my partner’s room so every time he would cross my desk I was scared to think what if he starts questioning me on the Tax workings. I was imagining the worst always. I had handed over the report to him on a Monday afternoon. The whole of Tuesday I spent waiting patiently for him to return the reviewed report to me. I kept chanting Sai Name all day long and would look at the Sai Picture on my desk every time I felt scared. Come Wednesday the client had asked for the report and hence I was scared that this might be the day and my partner might question the tax workings before I send out the report to the client. As I waited patiently, suddenly my partner came over to my desk and dropped off the reviewed report. I immediately touched the reviewed report to my Sai’s Feet (in the picture) and then started turning pages to see if there are any comments on the Tax workings. As I flipped pages to my utter surprise there was not a single remark on Tax, which meant I need not discuss that point with my partner.
On the contrary, there were hardly any comments from him on the report and it was just a half an hour job to include his remarks in the draft report for the client. This in turn meant, I didn’t have to sit and discuss any points of the report with my partner and I just made the necessary changes for the draft report to be sent to the client. This was the first time in so many months that I had sent out a report to a client without any major comments from my partner. I was so happy and relieved to see Sai come to my rescue. All through those 3 days I was thinking of the worst of outcomes, wondering what could happen if my weakness is revealed to my senior. But Sai came to my rescue. I immediately prayed to Him and vowed that I will diligently understand Tax concepts for all my future engagements so that I do not have to face such a dilemma in future. It was Sai’s way to make sure I actively seek knowledge on my work related concepts and hence He put me through this test. Even as I write this post, Sai is helping me as He sits there on my desk watching every word I write here. Om Sai Ram. Also, before I end I want to mention what I have learnt in these last 3 years of Sai worship. Each of us needs to keep Faith and practice Patience to see His Miracles in our life. While it is not guaranteed that we will always get what we want, our faith and patience will make sure that we see Sai’s will in everything that happens around us. We will ultimately start to accept all events as His will thereby giving us strength to face the extremes of life. Om Sai Ram. Sai bless us all and let there be peace and happiness all around. I sincerely pray people (including me) get rid of their ego at His holy feet and may Sai make this world a better place to live for all. Keep chanting these 3 words all the time and you will see problems resolving miraculously. Om Sai Ram.
On the other hand I was alone without a visa. All friends of my circle got visa but I still had not applied. The reason was rejection from colleges. I had decent grades so I applied some top ranked colleges. Most of them rejected admission for me and the colleges that accepted asked me to pay above 20k which my family couldn't afford. Thus I was totally depressed. I was spending my leisure time applying to colleges and tutoring juniors. I really thank Sai Baba for providing a lot of student to tutor. With the money I earned, I was applying colleges. I had thought not to bother my family financially. The deadline to apply colleges already passed and I was without college. All my friends were ready to move USA, waiting for the day to travel. I had good grades among my friends still I was not sure what to do. Friends, family relatives, teachers, tutored students used to question me "Though you have good grades, you still don't have visa however all your friends are travelling in the land of opportunity, Why? I had a dream to study in one of the good colleges in USA. But I was unable to explain everyone the reason behind rejections.
My expected family contribution was too low compared to expensive fee of colleges. So that was first reason for rejection. Lately I decided to study in any sorts of university but it was too late to decide that. Deadlines were already over. I was in dilemma why I have to face problem every time? Suddenly, earthquake hit my nation and some days later universities announced that they have opened up deadlines for students again. I saw a college granting full tuition scholarship for student with required SAT score. I applied to that college. After a long hassle of making documents I applied for visa and with the blessings from Sai, I got visa. Now I am studying here in USA. I was hopeless that I was about to waste a year without any study. I was depressed a lot that I cannot express but finally with blessings from Sai, such things happened which I can't even imagine. Now I am searching an On campus job here. I am fully optimistic that I will get that with blessings from Sai. Thank You So Much Lord. You Are The Almighty, You Are The Saviour, You Are Everything For Me. Love You Lord Sai Baba.
I have an American friend 84 years old lady who is practicing being vegetarian. She lives in a set up where almost 100 - 150 such seniors are accommodated and they have full service like lunch, breakfast, dinner, house maid services are provided. But sometimes she face problem where she does not get the food that she can have. So I think of her whenever I make some dish that she can enjoy, I inform her and go give her. Yesterday I went to give her "Vada Sambar" that I had prepared. She was very very thankful and said she is so sorry that she cannot offer me anything in return. I said, do not even think like that. You had done your part when you were younger and able bodied, now it is our turn and some day somebody else will do that for me! And by and by I told her how I made my grandkids dresses and how I over came the problem came up while sewing mistakes. I love problems as finding a solution gives me more satisfaction of overcoming the problem. I said, but, I still have one problem that I don't know the solution. My eyes getting weaker day by day and jokingly I said, but I think I do have a solution that I just found out while i visited my dentist last week!
I went to the dentist for annual check up and the special glasses with magnifier attachment like the surgeons use in operation theatre that dentist used, I will ask her from where to get those and Lo Baba plays His role here. My friend said, wait, wait and she went to her bedroom and came back with a box. What was in there? The magnifier lenses attached to flexible headband. You wear it on your forehead and see the things so clearly as if you had eyesight when you were in teens and can push it towards forehead when you want to have normal view i.e. to be without that device! I came home, used that headband to finish up hemming of the dress that I was sewing, it was so much easy to finish the task! I never ever had any idea of my troubling problem would be solved like this! Do you consider this a miracle?, I Do! Now I can do finer details on my painting with so much ease! Jai Sai Ram.
Another experience of mine was my PG exams were very tough. Baba helped to pass the exams very easily. At the same time, my father was very sick and hospitalised. Baba helped me to go through both my exams and also helped my father recover faster. My dad had multiple complications affecting almost all the major systems in his body. It is just because of Baba he recovered well and is doing well now. Baba helped me balance all the situations, my pregnancy, my exams and my father's illness simultaneously which were all major stressors which i could not have handled alone without Baba. Baba please bless us and be with us always and help me go through smooth delivery and give us a healthy baby. I have also observed that whenever i played Baba's songs my baby in my womb always moves around nicely. Always bless me to have increasing faith and devotion towards You. Akhilanda Koti Brahmand Nayak Sachidanand Sri Sadguru Sai Nath Maharaj Ki Jai! Om Sai Ram! Om Sai Ram! Om Sai Ram! Loka Samasta Sukhino Bhavantu.
While returning to my work floor, a small thought crossed my mind wherein I said to Baba, "You help people find their lost items like jewellery back, Can't You find a small key for me?" Thinking this I came back to my floor and the wonder of wonders happened, one of my colleagues was holding the key in his hand and he came to me asking "Is this what you are looking for? It had fallen down and I found it right here in front". I was shocked as I and few of my others colleagues were looking for it for quite a long time but could not see it anywhere. You are great Baba. I feel really sorry for testing You but at the same time also feeling blessed to know that You are there with me every second and listening to all my prayers. Love You Baba. Please keep showering Your blessings on all Your devotees and fulfil their wishes.
