Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
Of experiences, there are many but I would like to mention the Nav Guruvar Vrat which I am doing at the moment. I have done 8 Thursdays so far and have not yet got what I asked for. The reason I write about it is, when I started it, it was for a particular reason but I realised when I was doing it that Baba was inspiring me to do it for a completely different reason! I planned to start on a particular Thursday. By the time that day came around, I had an impressive set of problems. I was going through a really rough patch with my husband, he had lost his job and had developed a health problem. I was under a lot of stress at work and had developed a health problem myself. None of the above were the original reason I wanted to do the Vrat! After the first Vrat, my husband and I talked and decided to mend our relationship which had been pretty turbulent for a while. For the first time in months, the tension in the house eased and this in turn had a beneficial effect on our health. Around the 6th or 7th Vrat, my husband got a new job with the terms and conditions that he had hoped for. More importantly than any of these was the fact that I felt much closer to Baba than I had for a while but also, He effected changes within me and in my thinking which were the root cause of some of my problems. Somehow, what I had originally asked for didn't seem as important anymore.
I would like to mention a humorous incident before I sign off (Apologise beforehand if anything I say offends anyone). It is my experience that Baba has a great sense of humour. I have always had a tricky relationship with my husband as we are a bit like chalk and cheese. I am a sensitive person and he has an insensitive manner which does not make for a great combination. There have been situations in which he has said some quite cruel things to me. We had gradually drifted apart over time and in the last year, I was feeling quite unloved and lonely. Early in 2015, I found myself in the peculiar situation of having developed a "crush" on a TV actor. He is quite a handsome chap and I became a little obsessed with him. I would Google for images of him and stare at them with much sighing and pining. I began to have some ridiculous fantasies about meeting this TV actor and becoming friends with him even though the probability of this happening was next to impossible! (In hindsight, I realise how low I must have been feeling at the time.) It became such a problem that I actually asked a question on Baba's question and answer site about it (Please feel free to laugh, fellow devotees as I am laughing with you as I write!). This is what came up: Do not accept falsehoods as truth. Remember Shree Sai. Keep faith and wait. You will get proper direction. I can almost imagine the twinkle in Baba's eyes as He said it. I burst out laughing when I read this as it was so appropriate. True to his words, my attachment to this chap gradually dwindled but it took quite a funny incident to finally nip it in the bud.
One day, I was watching him on TV in a serious dramatic scene. It was a tense moment during which the protagonists were in danger of losing their lives. Suddenly, this chap ripped his shirt off and started showing everyone his chest for no apparent reason. It was so ridiculous that I cracked up. I immediately thought-'What a silly thing to do. I can't believe I actually admired this guy, he is an idiot!' It was as if Baba was showing me how silly the whole thing was. I had a good laugh with Baba about it and that was that. My relationship with my husband will never be what I want it to be but he has many good points and I have accepted it as my lot. There are lessons that this relationship will teach me and I am certain it is a means to work out karma and to fix some character flaws that I have. So, all who are reading this: however unusual or silly your problem, Baba has seen it all before and knows exactly how to solve it! We are fortunate to have a God who takes a personal interest in the minute of our problems and comes up with tailor-made solutions to help us. He never judges us but gently and lovingly brings us onto the right path. This is Sai, every man's Baba, unique and unprecedentedly accessible. It is said enough times on this site but we still falter; let us keep faith in His plan and have patience. I pray that He blesses us all with peace and contentment. Om Sai Ram.
Now see how Baba pulled me to Shirdi. One friend got official work and he had travel to US, and only me and other girl remained. Two tickets to Pune i booked and with so much of arguments she dropped saying she can’t come and i can’t travel alone so i went to travel agent to cancel tickets. In the phone he had told me he will give 50% of the ticket money only. I had paid 3k. I thought let me try luck and went to travel agent. Believe it or not the travel agent shop was full of Baba posters and calendar smiling at me and i even can’t forget that expression till now. I really had tears in my eyes and told travel agent not to refund any amount instead book Shirdi ticket for one person both ways. It was such a great trip. I travelled alone and good nice experience. Meanwhile coming back, i also visited my friend in Pune and spend a day roaming city and came back. After this incident, i decided every year i go to Shirdi. In the coming year, my Pune friend wedding was in Kolhapur. I thought i first go to Shirdi and then to wedding alone. Now co incidence is who ever had missed earlier to Pune they both joined me to Shirdi as well. I felt really happy and took them to Shirdi and then attended wedding. Now this year again i wanted to go alone to Shirdi and it turned out to be the good family trip of ours. My sister, dad and niece all joined me. This in year 2015 i finished 2 trips to Shirdi in Feb and November. This is how Baba pulled me under His wings. From that i am so much revealed. Any tension, i always have feeling He will take are and He will show the way. Om Sai Ram. Ananta Koti Brahmand Nayak Raajadhiraj Parabrahma Sadguru Sri Sai Nath Maharaj Ki Jai.
Another miracle that happened recently was, I was trying to contact my boyfriend from 3-4 hours since he had gone out for eating (he stays in another city now, so I was concerned) but he was not responding. I was really scared and tried calling but in vain. Then I took Sai Baba's Name and tried again and he picked up instantly! He said that his battery was dead so he kept his phone for charging and had forgotten about it. While I was trying and trying something in vain for hours, Sai's Name only made it possible in a matter of few seconds! I marvel at Baba's greatness at times. You are so full of miracles Baba. Please don't leave my hand Sai and please fulfil my wish of making me stay in the same city as my boyfriend. Do good to all my Baba. Cure everyone's illnesses, take away everyone's sorrows and give peace and happiness to all. Thank you readers for being so patient throughout. Om Shree Sai Nathaya Namah.
Here i would like to post the experience happened to me few moments ago, While i was cleaning my book shelf i found an important paper missing here, which i need to submit in college next month usually i keep things so carefully but i don’t know where i missed, even i have kept my sister's document in the same cover, i was very tensed because it is a bond paper where a print out of it is also not accepted. At the same time, night Aarti started in Baba’s Temple, I just prayed to Baba that i should find the paper before or by the completion of the Aarti, i will post it now and stared searching everywhere. I searched every shelf where i keep books and every bag and every locker. But i did not found it. I told to my mom and started searching again. Then i went back to the room again and in a sort i thought of searching the suitcase again. Then suddenly i found the paper in it Just before i searched the suitcase and came back to my room and again i went to suitcase i found it, At the same time the Aarti came to an end in temple and they started announcing something in mike. This is just because of Baba. He taught a lesson to me and today is Thursday too. I feel that I did some mistake knowingly or unknowingly, please pardon me Baba please. Baba, You know what kind of situation i am facing now please help me out of this situation and help me in my exams Baba, Please. Aum Sai Ram, Om Sai Ram, Om Sai Ram.
