Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
Time rolled by and at the age of 23, I was wedded off in a south Indian tam Brahmin family in far-flung Delhi. It was time for my second encounter with Shirdi Sai Baba. The initial years of my marriage were a mess. I vividly remember that day when I left to meet Him at Lodhi Road, Delhi. With less than 5 rupees in hand, I boarded a DTC bus number-605. Being a newcomer to Delhi, I blindly went my way in search of Sai Baba. I remember quite distinctly that I was shabbily dressed in a Saree and looked very much like a beggar. I had paid the conductor fares, which would have taken me 5 stops before Lodhi Road. Today when I sit and wonder as to why the conductor didn’t ask me for the extra fare, I feel he might have thought that I was poor enough not to be able to pay the balance of the fare. He possibly understood my predicament. Those were the days when money and food were frugal for me. All I remember is that I went in search of Baba, who happened to be seated on a high pedestal in a rich building befitting His status and had hundreds of followers thronging Him. I went and prostrated in front of Him with tears in eyes, asking Him where have You landed me in? I now realize that He had taken me into His fold since.
In the next 8 years of my stay in Delhi, never once did I get to revisit Him. Those 8 years were filled with tears and more tears with some joyful moments of the birth of a baby boy, Sriram. Through my stay at Delhi, Baba had been by my side without my realization. As I look back, He had held me on His shoulders as I walked past the thorny path laid for me by my life. Interaction with Sai Baba during these phases was limited in the form of Sai Bhajans sung by Lata Mangeshkar. My son used to love the “Sai Sai“ song as a toddler. The scenario now shifts to Jakarta, Indonesia. The Sai Bhajans would be heard religiously in regular intervals. Some difficult times encountered there seem to have been handled by Him without my knowledge. The move from Jakarta to Bogor seemed to be one of His masterstrokes. In the January of 2002, when the transfer was announced, it was surely Him who helped us through. That was the phase of utter chaos and uncertainties. It was Chaos, because my child and myself were in Indonesia while the husband was in India looking out for better opportunities. There were times while I felt helpless as my husband had to undergo gall bladder surgery and I had to leave him at the mercies of relatives, back to Indonesia to complete the school year of my child. It was a roller coaster of sorts, the months of May-June 2002. Things were happening in such chaotic manner that one could never comprehend what or who was helping us through.
The move from Indonesia to Singapore can be utmost be termed as a miracle. Now when I look back, I sincerely feel it was the Gods at work. Scenario Singapore, This is when His presence became really profound and He took my family and me into His fold. He still hasn’t called me to Shirdi but I regularly get His Prasad as I donate online to the Sansthan for Annadhan. He sits on a high pedestal in my little nest guarding us from all evils. He keeps guiding us and even though my questions to Him have remained unanswered and “Divine Timing” not yet ripe, I keep praying to Him, sometimes fight with Him, sometimes cry and sometimes laugh. My son is His devotee who never questions His intent even when in pain, when in trouble. To add, every single incident relating to my son has invariably happened on Thursdays. My son has full faith in Baba and feels that he will be placed in a good university and that his national service obligation will be completed without much hitch. My husband got into the fold during one of the stormiest nights in our lives. I have never seen my husband cry the way he did that night in front of Sai Baba. True to His words, Baba saved us from the storm. We landed safely from the problem. My husband has been looking for a change of job for the last two years. His interviews have always been on Thursdays. He had nearly got a job last year, but it somehow didn’t get through. The company dropped the idea of recruiting. Down 6 months since this, the market of the materials that the company dealt with crashed and we took it as a blessing in disguise though initially we were questioning Baba’s intent. He is yet to get a job and we still keep faith in Baba that He will bless him with the best of jobs. As we go through tough phases and rough patches of life with many lows, we believe that these lows will eventually become the highs soon. Till then we keep praying to Him and hoping that He showers us with the best of His blessings. Om Sai Ram! Om Sai Ram! Om Sai Ram.
So, i returned back to home and took my sister’s car and send my son to school safely. After deep checked my car engine by my father and brother, they managed to find On of the engine wire is disconnected. Both of them are very talented persons in automobile repairs. So my father said, there is some need to do some welding to connect back the wire. He went and looked for the fine welding iron to do welding but unfortunately could not find. After about 20 minutes at store room, he was very angry and in tension and started to shout at me and my mother. He threw all the things from the store room all over the places and scolded me terribly. That time, i sat exactly direct to Baba. Tears were flowing from my eyes. I called my Sai and said as a girl honestly i do not know all these faulty. Please save me from this situation. My Sai’s great Grace, within a second my father found the things which he look for. A miracle! he found the item the place where he searched two to three times before. Thank You Baba. I love You so much. Baba, You are my world. My days would not move without thinking You and without kissing Your Lotus Feet. Everyday, i pray You wholeheartedly. Dear respected Hetal Ji and team, heartiest thanks for creating this blog. Om Sai Nathaya Namaha.
Then after a week’s time, I received a call from an institute. The institute was going to conduct two interviews. The ones who cleared the first interview were going to be trained for a month and then again they had to face the second interview. I got selected in the first interview and was trained on some skills. Then we had to face the second interview. Where we had two panels for the interview, one was lenient and the other was strict. I prayed to Sai Baba that my interview should be taken by the lenient one. But I was interviewed by the strict one and the result was that I got rejected which meant that we would be trained again and interviewed. Then we were trained for more than 15 days. I had promised Sai Baba that I would be coming to Shirdi if I cracked the interview this time. I had even started Nav Guruvar Vrat. While going to the interview, I had applied Udi and prayed to Sai Baba and Sai Baba miracle happened, this time I cleared the interview. Now I have received my joining and as I had promised Sai Baba that i would be coming to Shirdi. I have planned a trip to Shirdi with my family and soon going to visit Sai Baba. Sai Digambara Akashaya Rupa Avatara Sarva Hi Vyapak Tu Shrutisara Aanusayatrikumara Baba Yeil Baa.
I came back and things changed for me. I used to see and take live blessings of Sai Baba in Shiridi online and one day, all of a sudden it happened that i decided to go to Middle East for work and i applied for passport. My father was abroad so in 3 months time, my stuff got ready and i was ready to go to Middle East. My visa came on a Thursday. My ticket came to be booked on a Thursday. I also reached Middle East on a Thursday. This is my Baba’s Miracle. Now, i am here in Middle East finding a job. I have full faith in Baba that the way He brought me here He will give me a good job here soon and i will be able to solve all our problems soon. I will get all my lost respect again and all will be alright soon. Om Sai Ram. I love You Baba. You are with me, so i don’t need to worry a inch. Be with me always Baba, guide me, help me get a job soon. In Your answers, You said in 8 days, i will get my path. Today is the 7th day and my Parayan is also getting over today. I know it that today and tomorrow, it will happen. I will get a good job and will be able to help all who are dependent on me. Om Sai Ram. Help me Baba.
