Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
There was a point in my life where I was feeling extremely low. I had many questions but no answers. I was desperate to know what was in store for me and did not know who to approach. During such days, I usually talk to Baba. There is a special kind of relationship I share with Him. We talk, we share, I also fight with Him at times. I just feel comfortable and I feel that He knows me the best. It was this one day, I was questioning Baba about my life and I came across your website randomly through Facebook. I clicked on one of the experiences and the story was exactly similar to mine - all the events going on in my life. It was miraculous. I instantly felt that this was Baba’s way of answering my questions. It gave me immense faith and I started reading more. Let me share my experience now. I have been in a relationship for more than 10 years. I am strongly committed to a guy who is kind hearted, caring, and strong willed. He is Baba’s gift to me. Though everything seemed perfect, it was not. The man I loved had seen a troubled childhood leading to separation of his parents. This made mature at a very young age. He tried his best to get a good life for himself and his mother (who suffers from depression). With all this in the background he always worked towards balancing his responsibilities and pushing for a better future for his family. Though he was well educated, luck was never on his side.
All the 10 years I have been with him I have seen him reach and touch success just for a minute. The next minute something unexpected happened and he was pushed down, again to start from the scratch. And this cycle continued absolutely for every job, every exam, and every major career decision that would have helped him get a better job and a better future. This affected our relationship as he was not ready to marry without having a stable job. He wanted to ensure he takes the right steps so that he could give me a good future. However it was somehow not working out. Both of us were trying to figure out what was going wrong. But we had no answers because the events that pulled him back were out of his control. In spite of all the fallbacks, he did not give up. He kept trying and I kept praying to Shri Sai Baba to get him a good job that will solve all our worries and help him get a good life for his family. I moved to Singapore as I got a good job. I accepted the offer as it promised a better future for us. However this made life a little more challenging. The question was should I go back to India so that we get married and stay together. But that would not solve our core problem of getting a better future. The next option though unattainable was for him to try his luck in Singapore and get a job here. This would solve all our issues and we would be able to take care of all our responsibilities. He started applying for jobs in Singapore. It had been a year and half. He tried and tried but no success. But we never gave up. I kept praying to Sai Baba. My mother kept motivating me. She asked me to believe that what Baba does is for the best and He is planning something good for both of us. And that’s the reason things are not falling in place right now. Maybe in the future something better was to come. As he kept applying for jobs and attending interviews for jobs in Singapore we were faced with similar situations again. He had cleared the interview for a job and was awaiting an offer from the company.
After a month of wait, the company informed him that the position was on hold due to company budget issues. It was then I was really worried. I lost hope and in times of troubles you remember God. I turned to Sai Baba for help. I needed Baba’s help desperately now as I had understood one thing. No one except God could solve our problems. I started reading Sai Satcharitra. I started my 9 Guruvar Vrat. I prayed to Baba. I talked to Him. I questioned Him - I needed answers - I am sorry Baba I have been really pestering at times. I never knew Baba was planning good things in the background and I had nothing to worry. In the meanwhile my fiancé received an interview call from one of the companies in Singapore. The job profile was not lined with his experience however we thought it’s ok to give it a try. At the same time there was a job posting in one of the banks in Singapore. This job was perfect for him and he emailed the bank to arrange for an interview. However the bank had not responded to emails. Hence we did not have any expectations. Miraculously when he came to Singapore the HR contractor informed him that there was some miscommunication and the actual interview was scheduled with the bank (yes the same bank who did not respond to emails) and not the company that was mentioned earlier. And this was the first miracle we experienced. We thanked Baba but were too scared to even be positive at this point of time. He appeared for the interview and the bank said that though they liked his profile they would declare the results later after a few months.
This was a bit disappointing as we had similar experiences where the company does not get back when months have passed. We thought maybe we are going through the same case of failure again. It was more than a month that the bank did not get back to us. We had now lost hopes and he started applying at other companies. However there was something that gave him an inner confidence. He always told me, I am sure the bank job will work out. Something good is going to happen we need to keep faith. And yes that is what happened exactly. One of the employees from the bank resigned and they needed to fill the position instantly as the project was on hold. On a Thursday morning, my fiancé got a call from the bank that they were ready to offer him the job and he would have to join them immediately. It was a dream come true. It was everything we ever asked for from Baba. I am extremely thankful to Sai Baba for His blessings. He has pulled me out from all my worries in a fraction of a second. My life changed. I kept worrying all the time and there Sai Baba was planning things for my better future. It was just that I was unaware and acted foolishly. All I needed to do was to pray and have complete faith in Baba. Now my fiancé is in Singapore. We both are very grateful to Baba for helping us come out from our troubles. I pray to Sai Baba to keep His blessings constantly with me and my near and dear ones. I am sorry for all my mistakes Baba. Om Sai Ram. Thank You God.
I had few acquaintances who doesn't believe in God and kind of debated over about my belief in Baba (frankly God itself) and that made me restless and my belief in Baba took a speed crash, I started seeing logic behind everything I hear or happens, for example from the Sai Satcharitra, if Baba knew something that happened miles away, I used to think maybe someone told Him and Baba expressed it (I know I am foolish). I stopped chanting His Name and became so egoistic, I had one phase, in which I was pointing my feet towards that Idol of Baba we had in our living room. During period, my parents were looking for a groom to give my hand in marriage and nothing was successful for almost an year, my mom started doing every Pooja that was told to her, I on the other hand challenged Baba during one of the emotional moments to get me any kind of Groom, I will be fine and my parents will be happy with my marriage, this over-confidence was due to my folks who always used to praise my adjusting nature and free-spirit. Now, look at the way Baba taught me a lesson for my behaviour. I got married to this guy who is low in character and who married me only for the fame and wealth my dad had.
We moved to Canada after marriage, Every minute of my living after marriage is a torture. I am still being abused in every way possible. He asks me to get money from my parents which I never agreed to and this makes things worse for me. I worked few days and used to pay for my food and living as well. He always complaints on having to provide me with food, clothing and place to stay in with his money. Unfortunately, I had to quit that job and still looking for one and I am waiting to be financially independent as I don't want to depend on my parents for anything. They never raised me as a weak person. My dad and mom raised me and my sister to be strong and independent girls. But never expected this is what I get for challenging Baba. If I share anything to my parents, they are shattered, I clearly know they are not happy with the way I am after marriage. I hardly speak to anybody, as he tries to link me up with any male being I speak to, even if they are my cousins, brothers or uncles. I now take money from my dad once in a while to make sure I have enough money if I need in it at any moment. Once I was a friendly, confident, truthful and outgoing person who used to light up the environment and easy-going, but now I am one person who have suicidal tendencies, cry all-time, low on self esteem, zero confidence and everything you can imagine for inefficiency. I hate to face my parents like this hence I told I won't even come home till I secure a job. I have now turned towards Baba begging for forgiveness for all my doings and wanted to get out of this pathetic relation as early as possible as I don't want to just die because of my weak mind. Can anyone believe it, I used to be that person who counsels when people are having hard time, but now I could use Guidance and counselling myself. I had many dreams which are still waiting to be fulfilled. I know Baba will take me back into His wing and guide me.
Coming to the main purpose of writing this post, It is a miracle that shows Baba's presence. As told earlier, I am looking for work. I live 1.5 hours from Toronto downtown, I got an telephonic interview from one reputed firm there on Monday, July 28th at 1:00 pm, in which I was successful and I was called for an in-person interview on Tuesday, July 29th at 4:00 pm. Since, it’s very far I had to take a Train for which I booked tickets the previous day itself as there were limited trains, I decided to catch the early morning train to make sure I don't get lost in downtown. Now I was thanking Baba for the opportunity provided and prepared to make my best out of it. Before I left, I was trying to find my handbag which had my ticket, driver's license, money for my travel. I was unable to find it I was panicking as my situation can't get better if I miss this train and the interview. I started crying, scolding Him (Baba) for putting me through this at last minute, chanting Baba's Name, searching all at the same time. I prayed telling Him that I would post my experience on this page If I find my bag and was able to catch the train in time.
Some moments later, it’s as if someone is telling me to start without them. I feeling worse, went to the parking lot, to my car hoping I will be able to get through the day without much trouble. And I was not able to believe my eyes when I saw my handbag in the car's backseat. I had never left it in the car ever before. Then I recalled that previous evening, I was out with a friend, whom I dropped off at her place, hence I put my hand bag in the back-seat and then picking rest of the other stuff, I forgot about the handbag and walked into the home. I was able to reach the station in time to catch the train and attended the interview. Though I wasn't successful, as I lacked experience but I am happy Baba is with me. I pray to Baba asking Him for His blessings and destroying all the six enemies in me while showing me the right path and never ever be broken from His Grace again. May He bless each one of us to realize the true purpose of our birth and guide us accordingly towards self-realization. I personally thank each one of you for your patience in reading my post and please be kind to your co-beings (Younger or older to you). Please treat them with respect and don't hurt them with your taunting words and actions. I request each one of you to bless me with strength to overcome this sufferings and stay connected spiritually to Baba. Thanks again. Om Sai Ram.
In March 2012, we went to Rome and Barcelona for holiday and i forgot to carry the ovulation medicines with me, those medication need to be taken at a proper time or else you cannot take it for the whole month, so i had to miss it for the month of March. I was very sad how will I conceive with the ovulation medicines. You won’t believe it in April first week I found out I was pregnant, me and my husband were overjoyed at this miracle and just could not believe it. My Doctor was also surprised how I could conceive without any help and medications. We went for our 7 week ultrasound and found out about baby’s heartbeat, it was a surreal experience and it was a Thursday. On the following Wednesday, I was going out for a walk and we used to live a multi-level town home, i suddenly missed a step and fell down sideways on my right side. I was in tremendous pain and had twisted my right ankle very badly. I called my husband as he was in office and somehow climbed up the stairs to the bedroom. I could not move and was crying in pain, i thought i had lost my baby. My husband took me to the emergency and they made me wait there without doing any x-rays, i was there for 3 hours in spite of me telling them that I am 8 week pregnant. I was praying to Sai Baba to protect my daughter and had a Sai Photo in my hand. They did the X-rays and told me I had a bad-ligament tear and had to be on crutches for a month and had to wear a big boot. I could not sleep the whole night as i was thinking that I had lost the baby. Next day was Thursday, I called my Doctor's office and scheduled an ultrasound to make sure everything was ok. At night about 1 am, i started to bleed, I got even more scared that I had lost the baby because it is not good to bleed during pregnancy.
Next day as i went for the ultra sound I was a nervous wreck, i had Sai Baba’s photos in my hand and put Udi on my tummy. The Doctor said that the baby is fine and the bleeding is not unusual and wont effect the baby, we could see the heart beat again. I thanked Baba a million times and went to nearby Sai Baba Temple and started crying. On Dec 2012, i had a beautiful daughter, We call her Saimaa. I had to wait for almost 24 hours after the water broke and would not have labour pains, even after the Doctors induced me. I was reciting Baba Aarti all this while and then the Doctor decided to a C-section. My Daughter is a Sai Bhakt and does Sashtanga Namasakar when she goes to Sai temple. She started recognizing Sai Baba even before her 4 months. Baba, You have blessed me with the greatest joy imaginable and made me a Mom. Baba please bless her, my family with good health and Your blessings.
One fine day, my sister suggested me to do Sankasti Vrat. I have decided to do it immediately and mean time one priest helped me to get the Sankasti Stotram Book. I felt very happy and felt that Baba is telling me to do this Vrat. I started the Vrat, in that month 1 of my friend asked me to forward my CV and I enquirer about the role and understand that I am lacking with some concepts where I never got a chance to work on those concepts. Though I forward my profile and after 3 weeks down the line my interview was scheduled and it was on Guru Pournamy. I prayed to Baba that "I do not have the required skills still the interviewer wanted me to meet, and requested Baba that interviewer should not ask about those concepts in my interview". To my surprising, interviews didn't ask me anything about these concepts where i do not have knowledge on. 2nd month also I did Sankasti Vrat and I got a call and scheduled my 2nd round. I felt very happy that when I got selected in 2nd round and I got a very good feedback from the interviewer. Then HR called me and I did not bargain much since it is a very good job.
After 2 days, my HR called me and told me about final package and I got shocked when I heard the figure. He really offered me a very high package and I was very shocked. I thanked Baba for whatever He has given to me. After that there were some hiccups in getting my offer letter but Baba helped with me in every situation. With this experience, I understand that, Baba show His guide to me to do Sankasti Vrat through my sister and He helped me to get the Sankasti Stotram Book from a priest and supported me in the whole interview process and helped, showed His Kripa on me in my pay and also to get the offer letter. Baba please show Your guidance to all Your devotees.
On the day of the appointment, I did Sai Baba's Pooja and applied Udi and drove to the hospital. There were few more women older than me in the breast screening area. One of them tried to calm me seeing that I was nervous, and said she just had one of her breast removed. I was constantly praying to Baba. My turn came and I was done in half an hour. Next day was Thursday, my Baba's day and in the morning I got a call from my doctor and she said that the biopsy came back as benign that means it is not cancer. I was so relieved hearing that, thanked my Sadguru million times. This reminds me of one of the sayings from Sai Satcharitra "I will draw out my devotees from the jaws of death". Just have full faith in Baba, He'll take care of you. There is another experience I want to tell. One day my son got an award in school and lost it in school. He came home and cried a lot and kept saying that he lost it. I tried to calm him down saying that go tomorrow and look for it in the playground and in the classroom. I asked him to pray to Sai, next day I applied Udi to his forehead before he left for school. He came home in the evening and said his teacher had found the award lying in the classroom floor. He was so happy and this strengthens his belief in Sai. Om Sai Ram! Bow to Shri Sai and peace be to all.
