Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
Sai Blessed Each Of Sai Satcharitra Parayan. Baba please pardon me for any error done while sharing the post. It all started when I thought of celebrating Baba’s birthday (Guru Purnima) this year on 31st July 2015 by offering Him a beautiful dress for that occasion just few weeks before Guru Purnima, as I have never done anything special for Him on this day even though I am His follower since last 10 years. Sorry Baba for my laziness. I thought it would be so good that Baba wears new dress on His birthday. But our dear Baba had other plan in His mind and this is how it materialized thereby.
I went to the local Sai Mandir nearby and expressed my desire to Pandit ji of offering dress to Baba on Guru Purnima. But Pandit ji there refused my booking since they do not accept outside booking for that occasion. He also told me that Baba’s dress for that day comes from Mandir trust and therefore politely asked me to book for some other day. But since I had planned my offering for Guru Purnima only, with heavy heart I declined their offer and came back home, taking it as Baba’s will. I was feeling quite dejected as I had pinned my hopes too high for this purpose but then I decided that I would celebrate Baba’s birthday at my home only in my own special way. Brimming with joy again, I started making preparation to this effect. I bought small little Odhni (drape) for Baba’s Photo (Which we worship at home), brand new mala, and flowers to decorate the place. On the auspicious morning of Guru Purnima, I got up early and prepared Asan for Baba and decorated it with flowers and then preformed Abhishek to Baba’s Picture with milk, curd, and honey to my heart content. I also light Akhand Jyoti the entire day in front of Him and pampered Him throughout the day in my own little ways I could and then put Him to sleep at night. I was quite happy as I could celebrate Baba’s birthday in my own special way as if He only belongs to me. Thank You Baba for giving me this opportunity, thank You so much.
But the celebration wasn’t meant to end here because my dear Baba had even bigger plans for my birthday which was just 2 weeks after His birthday, i.e. on 15th august. Daily i have the habit of opening up this blog and randomly choosing 2 or 3 stories to read and each time I was getting some beautiful birthday stories to read and I thought this can’t be a coincidence, may be Baba is trying to indicate something which I am unable to decipher. Since it started few days before Guru Purnima, I thought may its related to Baba’s birthday celebration that I am planning but then it continued even thereafter, I thought, it definitely has something to do with my birthday. Suddenly Baba inspired me to offer dress to Him on my birthday. Again I got really pumped up and then just one week before my birthday I went to Mandir to place my booking. When i told Pandit ji about my desire, he quickly ran through his dairy to schedule the booking. At first he refused saying that we already have the booking for that day, but I was sure this can’t be happening because I knew in my heart that it’s Baba order’s and desire to celebrate my birthday with Him. Then miraculously Pandit ji enquired with his assistant and he cleared his doubt saying that prior booking is for Annadhan and not for Abhishek or any Pooja. I was smiling to myself and thanking Baba in my heart because I knew He would never return His children disappointed and empty handed.
Pandit ji placed my booking for that day but cherry on the cake was when he assumed I would be offering Abhishek too to Baba along with the dress (Because I hadn’t thought about it), so when he was confirming the booking with me, “I am booking Abhishek and dress on your name, so you will do Abhishek also?”, to which I instantly gave my affirmation in nodding. I was overjoyed and the same time scolding myself that as to why I hadn’t thought of it before, but since Baba was planning my birthday, He took it upon Himself of planning the party. Pandit ji gave me the list of things required for Abhishek and thereafter I started making the preparations for it. That same very night I made 4 chits to decide the colour of dress for Baba and when I had zeroed on 3 colours and was thinking of 4th colour, like a flash (Literally like a flash) yellow colour popped up in my mind and I wrote it down in the 4th chit. At first I asked my sister to pick up one chit and it came yellow, but I was not satisfied since I had pink in my mind and then I placed chits before Baba for His choice and again it came yellow. Now I knew that its Baba’s will that He wants to wear yellow dress (Picture attached).
I got up early morning on my birthday and reached Mandir along with my parents and sister at 6.45 a.m and thereafter the ceremony for Abhishek started at 7 a.m. Since people are not allowed to touch the main Idol for Abhishek because that is done by Pandit ji only, we got to do Abhishek to Baba’s Lotus Feet as per all rituals. I was happy that not only me but family could also do the Abhishek with me, it was like Baba was blessing all of us at the same time. Then Baba was dressed with the dress that He had chosen for Himself through me and may I say He was looking so handsome and of course divine. Somewhere I knew that Baba was extremely happy wearing that dress. I have attached the picture so that all of you can see that I wasn’t exaggerating. And then finally Aarti was performed to Baba making whole of the ambiance so surreal and divine. When we were returning home from Mandir and were about to enter our street, I saw a very big picture of Baba at the back of the car standing at the entrance of our street, as if welcoming us back home after the celebrations. I can simply say that I was so so so happy inside that I fail to translate in words. That very same evening I very faintly wondered what Baba must have felt like, was He happy with the whole thing.
Actually I was looking some kind of confirmation (Sorry Baba, fickle mind) and lo, behold when I opened this site in the evening and randomly chose the first experience, it was about “A girl who very surprisingly got the opportunity to do Abhishek to Baba along with her mother on her birthday and how she felt so blessed and happy by the entire series of events”, and that my dear friends sealed my faith, cleared my doubts and multiplied my happiness to new heights. Therefore I decided to use the same title as of her story “Baba’s Grace and kindness” for my story too. Thank You Baba, thank You so much. And you know what at that very instance when I finished reading the experience; the internet connection broke as if it got connected only so that I could that read that very experience. I had the most amazing birthday this year because I celebrated it with Baba and believe me all this while I felt so special like a VIP sort, and lifting up my spirits. Thank you all for going through my experience with patience and I pray to Sai Baba to wish all of you reading this experience with utmost happiness, health, peace and prosperity and may Baba make your birthday too a special one. Thank you Hetal ji for posting this experience on your blog. Your blog has been a great source of strength and inspiration, capable of lifting us out of the misery and answering our queries when in doubt. Thank you so much.
Firstly, i would like to say that i am alive because of Baba because He saved me from an accident. It was evening around 7 pm, i was about to start form the office by office bus. My friend who works in some other company told that she will come and pick me up. She came in Honda Activa. We started from my office and we were on the road which is like a wide road with wide lanes that 3 heavy vehicles can go in parallel at the same time and vehicles do come at not less than 60 Kmph. She was driving in the middle of such road at around 60 Kmph. Suddenly the rear wheel got punctured and the bike started wobbling in the middle of the road. I prayed Baba for a second and i really do not know how the bike slowed down automatically from 60 Kmph and stopped. Share autos who were coming behind stopped seeing this incident. It was really Baba’s blessings that no big vehicles such as lorry, bus did not come behind us at that time because our bike was not in control. Nothing happened to us, not even a scratch. I thanked Baba and started pushing the bike to the nearest mechanic shop and there was another surprise. I reached the mechanic shop and i saw a big Baba's Photo in a standing gesture with His right hand in blessing manner. Tears came out of my eyes. I felt Baba saying like, "Come son, you are safe now". I could not speak a word or think anything at that time.
I would also like to share another experience. I was in love with a girl for 7 years and all of a sudden she had left me. I felt like i had lost everything in life and i was totally out. I was not able to concentrate in anything. I was struggling for almost an year and then Baba came in to my life as i said before. I went to Shirdi. I prayed Baba a lot to get her back but there was no sign of her coming back. But gradually Baba made my life smooth. I changed my company but still i was not able to forget her and i was still suffering. I got a new friend from Pune in my new company. She is also a Baba devotee. She got to know about my past life and she tried her best to make me good. I avoided her initially but we became friends soon and since she is from Pune, we and some of our friends planned a trip for Pune and Shirdi. We went to Shirdi first. Actually, i was in the queue crying and praying to Baba to get my love back but when we were returning from Shirdi to Pune, Baba made me fall in love with my friend and after we are back to work, i proposed her. She said, this will not work out but i left it to Baba. Days passed and she started liking me a lot than before and i told this to both of our parents and now talks are going on about marriage.
We faced a lot of problems because my parents are very orthodox and things went sour sometimes. But every time i leave the problem to Baba because i always think that He should be worried about me to keep me happy. Baba slowly cleared all the problems and now my family and i are going to see her this month to her home and the engagement, marriage dates will be decided there. I am still praying that the marriage should go fine without any problems. I would like to say that, please don’t lose hope on Baba. He will not interfere in our karma phase though He has the power to interfere but karma teaches us lessons and the same karma makes you become close to Baba by increasing faith and patience. Once your karma phase is over, then you see Baba's actions until then you have to stick with Baba. Because when you are with Baba, the effect of karma will not be that big, because Baba would have given you the ability to face it and He would have lessen the intensity of the karma. Now Baba is everything for me. I go to Temple as much as possible, i do my service in temple such as cleaning the temple, help in maintaining the crowd during Thursdays and i sing Aarti songs. I kiss my Baba, i hug my Baba, i lie down on Baba's lap for rest and what else i can get more than this on earth! I thank Baba for giving me this privilege. I stopped believing in luck because whatever i get now is given by Baba. So please leave your ego, have more faith and patience and be thankful to Baba for what we are, because there are people who are facing more problems than us. May Baba bless all.
One day my husband employer called to my husband and asked him to leave the place within 2 months of time or look something else. But that time my husband only applied for the Country work permit and did not receive it yet. So we both were in tense and just praying to God to get the Work permit letter as soon as possible, that time I came across to this site. I forgot to mention over here, from my childhood we are Sathya Sai Baba devotee. We used to go to the Bal Bikash class and used to do the Bhajan at home also. My husband’s family is also strong believer of Sathya Sai Baba. So I had strong believe that Shiridi Baba is the last incarnation of Sathya Sai Baba. But I never pray Shiridi Baba like how we used to pray to Sathya Sai Baba.
But one day when I went to Pooja shop to get something I saw the Nav Guruvar Vrat book, I never heard about that Pooja before. Then I asked my should I take this book, he told yes and after coming home just checked how to do this Pooja and did all the research. This incident happened when my husband and me were going through a bad phase. Then I thought to start the Pooja. Before we finish the First Nav Guruvar Vrat, my husband got the work Permit. Every time I used to do this Pooja, I used to get something good News, like my husband got a job offer, I got my work permit, we got our Permanent residence, I Got my job etc. but behind everything you should have two most important things, I would like to say Faith and Patience.
After getting the Work Permit, when I tried for the Job over here, I was in tense that after getting the job how I will commute to the work place without knowing the driving and hiring the Cab also costly over here. Because here for commute using local Transportation is not safe for foreigners. Then I got the chance through my husband company to give the interview to the same client where my husband supposed to go for the Interview. Then the same day we went for the interview and my husband got selected but I did not get any response from the client side. I was crying a lot as I was badly looking for the job and badly we needed for the financial help. After 6 months gone, I got the chance to work into the same client where my husband is working and we came for the interview. By thinking all these I cannot believe myself and Baba’s Leela, Can Baba help up to this extend and also I learnt the Driving during this period.
Here I would like to Request all the Devotees of Baba, Never leave Baba at any point of time, His Leelas are unbelievable. Baba never leaves our Hand, without You, we are nothing Baba. Please be kind to all the Devotees and please give Your blessings to everyone and Fulfil all their Wishes as per Your wish Baba. And always take us to the Right path to do the Right things as we human being does not know which is good and which is bad. Ananta Koti Brahmand Nayak Raajadhiraj Yogiraj Shri Sachidanand Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jay.
In 2015, he was wishing to pursue his MS from a foreign University. He got selected in a foreign University. Without enough cash, we again had no other option but to fall at Baba's Feet. I prayed and cried in Baba's Temple seeking His help for fulfilling my son's wish. However, owing to our persisting financial crisis, we were again feeling stuck. My husband's younger brother, who was not very co-operative till then, on the evening I had prayed to Baba desperately agreed to pledge the ancestral property in home town with a private financier and arrange for money as first installment for payment of fees. This is the next miracle. While all these were happening, I too had my share of difficult times. I had to resign my job during end of 2014. At that time I had received 2 Job Offers with the same package. I made a bad decision by opting to Offer No. 2 and rejecting Offer No. 1. I do not understand why Baba allowed me to make this error of judgement. I realised this mistake soon after taking up Offer No. 1. Finally, I decided to move out of it after about 5 months of difficult time. I resigned keeping faith on Baba that He will take care of me. I thought I will get another job soon. But after more than 3.5 months, my worry was growing up. In the meantime, I was also trying the organisation of Offer No. 1 which I had rejected earlier but was of no use. I had lost hope on this organisation. I had reluctantly took up a job for a lesser salary so as not to remain idle.
Finally, I decided to keep 9 Nav Guruvar Vrat with a prayer that before completion of 9 weeks, Baba should get me a good job. When I was getting very vexed with the job with a lesser salary, to my surprise, I suddenly received a call from the organisation that had given me the Offer No. 1. I was very delighted. I was called for a discussion the very next day and offered me the same profile that was originally offered with more or less the same package. This is the unbelievable Miracle of Baba, getting me the job where I had lost hope completely. I had vowed to Baba, that I will post these Miracles. Baba, forgive me for any mistake I might have committed knowingly or unknowingly. Gaining assurance in mind that when You are there, there is nothing one should be worried about. Baba the omnipotent is there to care of His children. Please take care of my son when he is abroad and also bless my husband with a good job.
After two days, my first baby expired. My whole world was destroyed. I asked Baba, why You did that to Your daughter. I cried cried and only cried as it was the only thing in my hand. I again asked Baba that now please save my second baby. He was recovering a little bit in nursery but one day i got the news that his life is also in danger. I went to nursery to see him and asked Baba to bless him life. But this was also not accepted by Baba and he also left all of us after 15 days. Mine and my husband's world ended here again. Sorry Baba, but at that time i lost all my faith on You. Now i regret for my that fault as i can’t live without Baba's Bhakti. At that time, i very hardly consoled my heart by saying that there must be something good in this also. After one year, i again started to conceive. But this time i was not able to conceive. Months were passing with only hopes and no result. I asked Baba that please call me to Shirdi from there no one comes bare hands and i know that that You will definitely full fill my wish and on this Guru Purnima, i went to Shirdi. After coming from Shirdi after one week only, i got the news that i have conceived. Such a big Miracle happened with me. Now my only wish from Sai Baba is that everything goes right this time and Baba bless long and safe life to my children. I request all the couples trying for a baby but not being successful in this to go to Shirdi and have Baba’s Darshan and blessings. Om Sai Ram.
