Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
My Husband is not a Devotee of Baba. He loves and respects God and his favourite God is Lord Ganesha. However he is not spiritual and I am yearning to see him devoted to Baba. I have been praying to Baba to pull him to His feet like a sparrow with a thread tied to his feet, like Baba pulled me and made me His devotee. But I am sure Baba has His own sweet timing for everything and I shall wait with Faith And Patience. Recently, I was just thinking and I realized how Sai Maa has been answering my prayers and fulfilling my wishes, slowly but steadily. Initially when we got married, my husband was still following his bachelor ways and used to hardly step into the kitchen to help me. I used to struggle finishing things and making everything ready. It was always a mad rush to wind up kitchen activities early in the morning and get ready for work. And my husband was always keen on ordering food from outside or dining out. He was hardly interested to cook. Those days were really tough for me and I used to feel low and sad. I used to pray to Baba requesting Him to change my husband so that he takes interest in cooking and starts helping me. And things started changing. Baba magic worked its wonders again! My husband realized the importance of eating healthy and home cooked food.
In some time, we changed our old house and moved into a better place. This new house is more well lit, bright and airy. When we shifted to this house, we found our Baba’s photo and Dear Lord Ganesha’s Idol in this house in the cupboard. I knew things will change for the better that Baba loves us and is with us always! Gradually my husband took interest in cooking and he started helping me to the core. Rather he used to do the majority of the work. Sometimes he would cook the entire dish with my instructions. And now, He cooks like a pro. He does everything on his own, right from buying the ingredients to finishing cooking the dish. He hardly needs my help and asks for any guidelines! Is this not amazing? It was only because of my Husband’s Love, help and cooperation that we could mange my whole pregnancy easily without any help. He used to cook for me and my unborn Daughter! And now too, my loving husband continues to cook for us! He so loves to cook now that he wants to learn new dishes and cuisines and he wants to cook it for me and our Baby Girl! Tears are welling up in my eyes as I realize the love and blessings of my Baba. He has changed my husband for the better and fulfilled my wish. I love it when my husband cooks for us every single day. We have hired a cook now and the cook does the major tasks, but still my hubby cooks some dish every day. Since my husband devotes some time in his cooking, we are able to bond better – chatting up in the kitchen. He doesn’t waste his time playing too much computer games which he used to do earlier and that used to worry me a lot. He is conscious about eating healthy and we hardly eat outside now! This is nothing less than a miracle! My Mother is so fond of my husband Seeing all these changes in him! They also bond well in the kitchen. They share tips on cooking and my husband asks for spices when my Mom visits us! These are small joys which give me so much of joy and satisfaction.
I have quit my job recently, so as to be a full time mother to my Baby. I continued to work from home of a long time and was not able to manage any further after my baby started crawling and standing. It was necessary to be with her always and keep a watch on her. So i wanted to resign. However i was hesitating to tell the same to my husband because he will be tensed about our financial stability since we have recently booked a flat. So, i left it in Baba and i had just started the 9 Thursday Vrat and i was praying Baba to help me resign from my job during the Vrat. And to my surprise, my husband suggested that i resign and take care of our Baby. He was very confident about our finances and was not at all worried. That is all i wanted, that he should be not be worried at all. And by Baba’s Grace, i resigned from my job happily within my 9 Thursday Vrat. Now i am praying Baba to help me in my other interest areas and Baba is showing me a way. I have been keen on taking up professional singing as my career and had a wish of singing Baba’s Bhajans. By Baba’s Grace, i recently got an opportunity to sing two Bhajans for Baba. I am thankful to You my dearest Sai Maa for everything You have been bestowing on us. I love You immensely.
After 4-5 months of my delivery, i started getting bad knee pain and back pain. I was very worried and scared and was praying Baba to cure me soon so that i can be fit enough to take care of my Baby. It was getting difficult for me to sit on the floor, pick up my Baby and do normal day to day activities. I started taking Udi mixed with water and my husband and mother were massing me with oil regularly. I also visited the Infant Jesus shrine in Bangalore and prayed from my heart to cure my health issues. Infant Jesus is the same as my Baba. Now with dearest Deva’s Grace, my knee pain has vanished. It’s been a month now that i am free from my knee pain. I did not go to any doctor for knee pain and just took Udi water. When Baba is the best doctor we need to go to any other doctor. Baba is the best and His Udi is the scared medicine that will cure all our physical and mental issues. Love You Dear Sai Maa and i cannot thank You enough for healing my knee pain. Please cure my back pain also, it has reduced but not gone completely. Baba has been helping and blessing me in my writing aspiration too and few of my articles have started appearing on the net. Thank You immensely Baba for everything. I just love You from the core of my heart and cannot thank You enough. I am eager to see my Hubby become a devotee of Baba and i am sure with Baba’s blessings, it will happen soon. Baba please cure my Maa’s heel pain. Thank You for curing her wrist pain. Please be with her always, she is my life. Prayers for one and all. May we all get shade under Baba’s protective wings and prosper in life. Help us to do loads of good karma Sai Maa. Shri Sachidanand Samartha Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai. Aum Sai Sharanam.
Now i started regretting my decision of getting into medical field and all our relatives and other family members started passing comments. I decided to leave this course but my parents asked me to take another chance for last time and if this time i could not clear they will change my course. Now when i was preparing for this last try, my roommate who was a devotee of Sai Baba started a Pooja with her friends in which they use to keep Sai Baba and do Saptah Parayanam and Pooja for 7 days and then 8th day, they use to give Sai Baba to her friend and she will repeat the same for seven days. So one day she asked me will you keep Sai Baba and do Pooja as her seven days were about to complete. I said No, i won’t keep, nothing happens with all these things. But my friend she agreed as she use to do worship Sai Baba along with all other God’s. (This memory got stuck in my mind as i never use to insult any God or God related person but this time, i directly said No, so somewhere in the corner of my mind, i always remember that day and feared). Now we wrote our exams and results came. When we saw results that time, i passed but my friend who did Pooja could not clear. I was happy and i thanked my Lord Ganesha for this achievement and also my belief got strong that i was right and nothing happened with that Pooja. I started my college and my friend with her preparation.
After 6 months, she also cleared and started her college. Now when i see in past it reflects that if she had to wait for another 6 months it was for her good only because her ride after starting 2nd year was smooth in fact very smooth but my ride was more of a roller coaster. It was full with bad lucks, failures and what not. Because of all this, i again got 6 months back so now i was with my friend and had to write final year with my friend. This time she cleared her final year this march and started her internship but i could not clear so had to write again in June. My friend who was behind 6 months from me in first year is now 6 months ahead of me after clearing final year. After getting my bad results in March, i left hostel in April as it was very hard for me to stay there and there were some other problems also. So one day in May, i was thinking that why i am facing so much and started thinking about past, now again, i remembered that day of saying No to Shri Sai Baba Pooja. After that I started searching about Sai Baba on net to see who is He and why people worship Him, everything about Him. This is when i came across this site and started reading experiences. After reading about Him, i felt so guilty about what i did in past and decided to go Sai Mandir on coming Thursday. I searched for nearest Sai Mandir and went. When i reached near Mandir, i could feel someone smiling and pulling me towards Sai Mandir. Evening Aarti was already started. I entered and stood in queue. It was so mesmerizing, so peaceful that my tears started rolling down even without seeing Sai Baba because of rush during Aarti. I felt so light like someone took my burden and cleared my mind and heart of that. I can’t express my feeling in words, i was just crying. That day, i asked His forgiveness and i think He did forgive me that day only because at night, i saw a dream in which He came in the form of Lord Ganesha.
Then next day itself that is on Friday, i brought Sai Baba Idol and Sai Satcharitra. After that day, i started worshipping Him daily, did Saptah Parayanam, started going to Sai Mandir on Thursdays, Read Kasht Nivaran mantra daily. Then Wrote final year exams again in July and started Nav Guruvar Vrat. With Sai's Grace, my exams got postponed for 1 week and also my results (Approx 20-25 days). Last Thursday i.e. 24/09/2015 was my last Guruvar Vrat and in the evening when i went to Sai Mandir, my tears could not stop rolling down during Aarti. After that I distributed food and books. I always prayed to Sai Baba that results should come on Thursday so was expecting today as it was my last Vrat day but did not get results. I was sad but again prayed that i don’t mind if my results are late but it should come on Thursday only. Now yesterday, Thursday i again kept fast just like that only and again prayed that my results should come today. In the evening, i got the news that results are out. I was shocked and happy and without even thinking anything immediately opened the link sent by my friend chanting Sai Baba's Name. It got opened in seconds (After that site got crash and others could not see their results for next 30 minutes). I saw my results, i passed. I passed my final year. My degree was complete. I could not believe for few seconds. I was so happy that i started crying. I cried so loud, i never cried like this. Never ever. I thanked Sai Baba so much that He gave me such an awaited success. Now i can proudly write Doctor in front of my name. That was a proud moment for everyone in my family. After that i went to Sai Mandir and attended Aarti. I made sweet and offered to my Sai Baba. This success is devoted to Him. It was not possible without His blessings. In between the time period of my exams and results I became true devotee of Sai Baba. I asked two times in question and answer forum. First He asked me to serve sweets to poor and children on Mondays and in second He asked me to just remember Him and stop my mind from wandering. I am soo soo soo happy and my faith also increased a lot. Thank You so much everyone. May Sai bless everyone.
Then the date of surgery came and she was operated. But then she needed to have an open surgery since her large intestine had also got affected. As a result, she ended up with no stomach, loss of 60 per cent large intestine and also 3cm of her oesophagus had to be removed. However, we were happy that at last she was free of the pain she had been undergoing. But doctors told us that she would need some post-operative chemo in order to prevent any problems in future. Till now, all was fine in the ICU and I was very happy that Baba had listened to the prayers (My prayers were a miniscule part of it as I said I lack in Shraddha and Saburi). But this was not the end of it. In 10 days, she developed lung issues and fluid accumulated there. She had to be operated again and she was cut open at the same place and her lungs cleared of the pus which had accumulated because of a 3mm gap that had come up. She was then put on ventilator. I went to a Baba Temple near our house and prayed to Him to cure her. He even gave me a positive signal and I was happy and told my husband not to worry since Baba had shown He was there with us and that my mother-in-law was going to be fine.
After 4 days, doctors decided to remove her from ventilator. However, within hours she again started experiencing breathing issues and her oxygen level went down and her heartbeat rose. So she again had to be ventilated. Then it was found that fluid had accumulated around her heart. Doctors suggested shifting to a heart hospital to have that fluid removed. I kept praying to Baba to cure her. My parents and sisters told me to have faith and that Baba will surely cure her. Then she started showing some positive signs and doctors decided to let the fluid drain out of the body on its own. She requested doctors through writing to send her to ward on Ganesh Chaturthi so that she could do her prayers. However, doctors told her that was difficult and after 4 days decided to shift her to room. By now she had already stayed in the ICU for over 20 days. In the room a full-time nurse was put for her and a portable ventilator support was installed to help her breathe. In the room, we started to make her talk (Because of ventilator she hadn't spoken for days together and her voice was not coming). She started showing positive signs and doctors decided to start oral feeding. (She hadn't eaten anything from the day she was admitted.) But that was not the end of it.
Within four days, when I and my husband had gone home to bring change of clothes all her vital signs went down and she had to be rushed to ICU. They tried stabilising her but couldn't and she was put on ventilator for the third time. By now our expenses had gone haywire and we had borrowed money from relatives to fund the treatment. After 3 days, doctors decided to insert a tube through her throat to her lungs so that her mouth would be free and they could start oral feeding. But on the day of the surgery, she panicked and the procedure had to be abandoned. The next day morning her heartbeat went more than double and she had to be given strong medicines. Her vitals were stabilised and in the afternoon she was operated. Post surgery, her heartbeats went lower than normal. But doctors said she will pick up. In the meanwhile her platelet count and blood count started dipping. She was being given blood and platelets every day. During tests it was found that she had developed fungus infection in her blood and urine and strong molecular medicines were prescribed for it. Despite all this, we kept the belief that at last she will be fine.
However, today when a doctor inserted a tube through her throat to remove phlegm, blood came out of her nose, mouth and the tubes inserted in her and splattered on the wall. Her condition is deteriorating. I am not able to see her in so much pain. I am not able to understand why Baba is testing her so much. She been has been in ICU for over 35 days now. We have gone broke trying to cure her but have not been able to see any positive signs so far. A single day of improvement is followed by days of deterioration. We haven't seen her stand, walk or talk from the day she was admitted. All our hopes are starting to sink. I humbly request all of you to please pray for her so that she gets cured at the earliest. Even doctors are not able to understand why so many issues are cropping up. She never had any lungs or heart issues earlier. I am feeling so helpless and praying Baba to cure her at the earliest. This treatment thing is going on and on. Please put an end to it and cure her completely. Have mercy on us. Baba there is nothing which You cannot do. Everything is in Your hands. I humbly leave my mother-in-law at Your Lotus Feet. Now everything is dependent on You. I understand past karma affects us in this life but if You are there even that sufferings can be overcome. You are the past, present and future. So now everything is up to You.
Another miracle is, Visa Stamping Miracle: I couldn’t believe it. I started asking Baba which consulate I should attend and His response was to go to Delhi. Till then anyone who resides in the certain state should go to the closest consulate. I am from AP and then Chennai was the closest. I didn’t believe my luck as that month US consulates posted a message in their website that people can go to any consulate as there is heavy traffic in all consulates and they are doing this as a short term mitigation. I prayed Baba and booked my date. I went to Shiridi, Tirupathi and offered my prayers to Sai Baba and Bala ji. Then, I went to Delhi with my friend to attend visa interview and we stayed in hotel. I was preparing whole night for the interview and praying Baba that please come into me and give me some confidence at the time of interview. Here comes the big day. My interview was at 9:30 and usually consulate won’t allow people more than 30 minutes in advance. However, I reached the consulate by 7:00 and thought I can go and stand in line and come back if security people won’t allow me. My friend was against my decision but I convinced him and went and stand in the security queue with my documents. The procedure is, you shouldn’t carry anything except visa documents. So, I left everything with my friend. Security person started screening everyone and he was doing the body scan and checked my pockets. He found 2 rupee coin in my pocket and asked which country’s coin is this? I said that is India’s and they released it recently. So, he asked me if he can keep that coin. You won’t believe as I don’t know how that coin was the only thing that I left in my pocket? I clearly know it is not allowed and pose an issue to my interview.
Earlier, I kept the same coin in front of Baba’s Photo and prayed Baba to grant me a success. That is actually my sentiment coin and I thought it is still in front of the Baba. So, security person asked me why did I came much early as it won’t start until I hour or so? He also said, since I helped him, it is his turn to help and I didn’t understood that. So, he said me to break the queue and go to first counter where they will see my documents and send me in, he also advised that they may object me there. If someone objects me then security persons wants me to wave that counter person towards him and he said he will tell them to accept me. I did the same thing and they did allowed me. I was in by 7:45. I went for finger prints and I was waiting in the line for interview and it was not even 5 minutes officer called me as I was next in the line. I went for an interview and the officer asked me just 3 simple questions. Miracle, He said my visa is approved. I exit the building with joy, tears and I can’t even tell. I prayed Baba entire day. I told this 2 rupee coin miracle to all my friends. I still believe that security person is none other than Baba. Jai Sai Ram. Till then my belief in Sai Baba increased day by day and I started reading Parayan many times/year. Also, started doing Sai Vrat and seeing lot of positive changes in my life. I always feel that whatever I am whoever I am that is because of Sai Baba and without Him and my parents I am nothing. I have a great wife and handsome son. My son is Prasad of Sai Baba. Baba recently changed my life with the great news which can change my life. However, As I am writing this, the good news turned sour and I was not eligible to apply. I still I feel that Sai Baba didn’t liked that news at this time and He will give whenever He feels to. I am sure He will be. My dedication towards will not change with these changes. I am always grateful to Him and love Him. Om Sai Ram.
Another experience, feels simple, but it is Baba’s Leela. I was feeling bad and my tears were rolling out of my eyes. I was sitting in a car with few other people and I did not want to show them that I was hurt, so asked Baba to help me control my tears, immediately all my tears dried up. As I said it might seem simple, but it is truly a miracle. There was a fight between me and my husband and it was affecting the children. I decided to talk, but was afraid he will refuse, so prayed Baba for His help and make my husband understand. Baba came to my rescue and helped me. Please always stay with us Baba and show us the right path. Om Sai Ram! Another recent experience is that My husband was looking for a promotion for almost a year. In the past one year, for 3 or 4 times, he came so close to get promoted and it never happened. My only refuge was Sai Baba. I prayed Baba to help my husband and that I would post it. Just last week, he got promoted. Thank You so much Baba. Please show us the right path and be with us always. My brother was travelling and both his baggage's were overweight and we were afraid where they will charge lot of money for it. The Carryon and backpack was also overweight. I prayed Baba and asked Him for help. Thanks to Baba, we ended up paying only for one suitcase. Baba, You know I am seeking You for another help and I will post it as soon as it happens. Om Sai Ram.
