Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
Previous to this also, me, my husband and my kid had been to Wayanad. On the day of return, both my parents and in-laws were advising us not to travel at night. But we ignored their warnings and started our return journey in the evening. We were on a broken road with no street lights and traffic barriers and dividers placed at random without any proper red or yellow photo luminescent signs. My husband had been driving for long and was tired. On top of that, the cars coming from the opposite directions had switched on their full beam lights which created a blinding effect. So he was not able to see the road clearly. Suddenly he noticed that we were about to hit a divider which was placed in random. He applied full brakes and luckily due to Baba’s grace the car stopped just in time. We were saved. Not only this, as it was 31st December night, post 12 am, the highway was full of drunks riders on bikes. We also saw a road accident and had to help the victim. The whole experience of night travelling was very eerie, and I was just praying Sai that we reach home soon safe and sound. We reached home safely, but that was also a lesson from my Sai to respect our parents’ advice always and follow them. I resolved not to travel very late in the night by car from that day.
Again, during the same trip, I learnt another lesson about wearing seat-belts when you are in the front seat. I would always avoid wearing them in spite of my husband’s repeated requests. The road went through the middle of the forests and the bumpers were not clearly visible. On one such bumpers, my husband had to hit the brakes suddenly and I was thrown forward with just an inch left to crash my head on the front window. I realized my folly and wore the seat-belt. That was another lesson taught by my Sai. Really our Sai is the ever-caring Mother who would nurture, protect and care for His children. He imparts lessons in a way that the individual would understand for his/her life. Thanks Baba for being my Guru and my best friend. Love You Nath.
Our Master, the benevolent Sai has been very kind to me with His evergreen grace which I can feel in every moment of my life Recently, I also experienced some of our Baba’s miracles which are mentioned below – 1) Electricity problem solved – My in-laws were facing a very peculiar electricity bill problem. Since, they stay with us for most of the year in Bangalore, the apartment they own at Kolkata had been locked up for several months. However, when the electricity bill came, the amount was an astounding Rs 18000. We were all shocked as there was no power consumption for so many months. The matter was reported to the electricity department. But due to the negligence of the officials and their lack of apathy towards resolving this issue, it became a severe problem for us. We were asked to pay that huge amount for no fault of ours. But my father-in-law was determined to fight it out in truthful ways. So after lot of hassles and visits to the electricity department, the matter was brought to the notice of Ombudsman. My father-in-law was trying to justify his cause and the electricity department representative was trying his best to hide the callousness of his department’s officials. The first judgement which resulted out of this face-off seemed to be in favour of my father-in-law, but the electricity department did not agree with the judgement. This issue seemed to drag on with no resolution at wit’s end. My in laws were very tensed as they had to would have to shell out such huge amount for no fault of theirs. For a retired person, this was a severe blow and they had many sleepless nights. I constantly prayed my Sai to resolve this problem. Somehow I felt that this issue will drag on, until the day when the trial session would fall on a Thursday. Luckily to my amazement, the second hearing with the ombudsman fell on a Thursday. Solely due to Baba’s grace, the verdict passed was completely in favour of my father-in-law. Not only that the ombudsman also directed the electricity department to adjust the extra amounts paid by my father-in-law during this issue period in the subsequent bills. I cannot thank my Sai enough for this miracle. It relieved my in-laws of their worries. Really, when Sai is there, we need not fear, as He is there to bear all our burdens. The only thing is we should strictly follow the path of truth. Thanks again Baba. Love you very much.
My friend delivered a baby boy – One of my friends was facing severe issues during conception. First time, the baby had to be aborted due to her health issues and the second time, she had a miscarriage. Only the persons who suffer know how painful the process is. May Sai Nath bless all the childless couples with a sweet and healthy child. My friend would often tell her woes to me. One day I suggested her to perform Sai Nav Vrat Fast. She agreed to do so, and I helped her get the necessary information. She completed nine weeks of Pooja and even after Udyapan, she continued with her Pooja. A few weeks later, she informed me that she was pregnant and now she has also delivered a healthy baby boy. Really our Sai is very great. Those who call out to Him with faith and love, He will surely help them out. His words that “He would run to all His devotees in distress” have remained true till date. Of late I have asked another of my friend facing a similar problem to do this Nav Vrat Pooja. Once she conceives, I will post again. Thanks Sai for keeping my faith and belief in You strong.
Sai returned a lost folder – My kid’s medical folder was missing for many days. We could not remember where we misplaced it and that caused lot of inconvenience to us. Once Sai had told me that “You will get back the lost thing” through questions and answers site. I did not understand it then. But many days later, we found the file stuck in the crevices of a drawer. As the file was retrieved and I looked up I realized that the drawer was placed juts beneath Baba’s huge photo in our drawing room. I realized Baba’s words then that He will ensure that I get back this lost thing. There are many other instances of Sai’s constant help to us. It is really difficult to jot down them all. There is not even a single moment which is devoid of His Leelas. His greatness is indescribable really. Only one last lesson which I would like to share with my fellow Sai devotees – That never pose any hindrance to any one’s Pooja. We may not like a person’s Pooja style or devotion. Sometimes, we also start thinking that my Bhakti is unparalleled and this person should learn from me. But this is not acceptable to our Baba. As already mentioned in Sai Satcharitra, Baba Himself is capable of gauging one’s Pooja, love and devotion. So we should not judge another’s. We should just see if there is any lacuna in our Pooja, faith, love or Bhakti. That should be our only cause of concern. He has taught me this lesson many a times in various ways. Those days when I commit this mistake, He does not accept my Pooja and in some way a hindrance would be caused. Either He would not accept my offerings or I would forget the Aarti lines or some other issue might occur. But He will ensure that I feel His displeasure on my wrong doings. I am slowly trying to imbibe this lesson, though at times I do fail and my ego takes better of me. Hopefully one day, I will be able to follow His teachings religiously. Om Sai Ram.
I came home crying and asked my roommate to open the door. The thing is its hardly impossible to get my wallet. Because if someone is taken my wallet, they should drop it in front desk by then (its almost an hour) or if some one was stolen, they will take somewhere take the money and throw somewhere or keep it with them. After coming home i blocked all cards and started calling all my friends to get to know how to apply new EAD. But it’s really hard to apply. I was crying and scolding Baba like why are You doing this to me, is this testing or punishing? But after some time I prayed Baba and made a desire that I will post this here if I get my wallet which is impossible. And then after one hour, i opened my Facebook, then i saw Baba picture on my wall (I liked Baba’s page). I was like Baba please give my wallet. Later i got a call from unknown number. I lifted it with little curiosity and it was from the store to my surprise, they found my wallet. I was on tears telling thank you to them. They gave to that gentle man who hand over my wallet. I said thank you and asked him where did you find the wallet. He told that he was taking trash out (store's trash cleaner). While doing that he found wallet and gave it near front desk. Someone stolen from trolley and found that there was no money and dropped in store trash can. That was like a miracle. How can a man finds wallet from big can of trash. Isn't he not a Sai Baba who came in that man and gave my wallet. I told thanks whole heartily to Sai Baba and ran to the store. Each and every card including EAD was there in Wallet. I asked about that man at the store, they told he already went away. I told thank you to him from my heart and came home happily.
Second Experience is, This is one small experience. One day i got a letter from illinois toll centre. After reading the letter, i realized that I missed three tolls in Chicago (I went few weeks back). I never even noticed that there are tolls. Those are very confusing toll roads who went there for first time. That letter describes that i need to pay $65 as fine, due date is 30 days of that letters issue date. But that day was 31st day of issue date. I was so scared. Because they mentioned if in case of fail in paying fine within due date, legal actions will be taken and should appear in court. Then I Prayed Sai Baba and again made a desire if everything happens smoothly, i will post here. Later I called my friends in Chicago and sent photo copy of that letter to them. All of them are like no problem, you can pay it now and the letter was just to scare you. There is nothing to do with that. I paid those money and it accepted. I was relieved and told thanks to Sai Baba. Remember one thing no one else can take you out of your problems other than our Baba. He just needs faith and patience. There is no punishment in Baba’s dictionary. Om Avignamasthu Sai Nathaya Namah Prathamam Sai Nathaya Namah, Dhvithiyam Dwarakamayine, Thrithiyam Theerjarajaya, Chaturdham Bhakta Vathsale, Panchamam Parmardhaya, Shastincha Shiridivasane, Saptamam Sadgurunathaya, Astamam Anathanathane, Navamam Niradambaraya, Dasamam Dattavatarame Yathani Davanamani Trisandya pade nityam Sarva Kasta Bayanmuko Sai Natha Guru Krupa!! Om Sai Ram.
Presently, I live in San Diego within 20 minutes drive to Baba. But that evening, as new fly over were built and that no one we're giving us way to join on to the traffic we are travelling on the fly over, with almost nil on gas and scared for the December night darkness, immature driving and so on. After 20 minutes drive, we caught up with the traffic and my girls asked me not to be panic and then we drove to Baba's place. We started from home for 3 minutes drive, but We ended at the temple. Then I was literally fighting with Baba, why I was called to temple as it was not Thursday, that day, which used to be my routine day to temple. Immediately, I heard from behind, as if somebody heard my inner voice," It's time for Baba Thursday Aarti. "Out of human instincts, I was still dissatisfied and the huge line for Prasad was adding on to it. Then I was cutting through line came out where I found some papers turned back and kept. But my grudge to pick free stuff was forcing me to pick it up, while my laziness to commit to it was pulling me back, I successfully, happened to look at them and found those papers to be ' Nava Guru Varna Vrat' in my mother tongue. Then I looked into Baba's face and He was cutely smiling with victory over me so I was forced to accept my defeat and take those papers home with a warning to Sai that, it is His responsibility to make me do it without any interruptions and not only to me but two other times on my girls names too, after that we should have great period too. As usual he up kept His words only leaving back to me the words ' Samartha Sadguru Shri Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai.'
So friends I would like to share you my 22 years of secret with our friendship I sometimes, bribed Him with 2/-. That is His Shraddha and Saburi, the dedication and patience He always wanted from us. Faith is a small five lettered one with abundance value. Keep it and He will upkeep it. Epilogue: few weeks before this incident, Baba was telling me to do this Vrat and I kept on postponing it. One week before this I found a book in Hindi, thinking it free I skipped it slowly into my bag. But the guilt that I might have taken someone's useful resource, I truly asked Baba's pardon and if He gives me my language papers, I am going to perform it. As somebody referred to me that, He first shows us the way, then makes us determined and pulls our hand to walk on the way. So here I am. But my experience told me that He also walks with us in each and every best possible way, if we keep faith in Him. this is one best experience, I would like to share with you all within every days friendship with Him and how He taught me the practical application of Satcharitra stories to our daily lives and how all religions and all different Gods in Hindu religion , All leads us to "The One Supreme Power". Thanks to Sai who made me write this and to you all. Om Sai Ram.
The very next day doctors told he has improved but he should not take medicines for heart. If my dad does not take heart medicines he keeps getting heart attack and pace maker might save him mild attacks but for severe attacks nothing can be done. Also they said anything may happen at anytime. Still we had a strong belief that my Sai Ram will show other way. Within 2 days we met one doctor in Narayana hrudayalaya and we were told there is a new procedure where my dad will not get attacks at least for 2 years. Our luck few doctors from London had come to Bangalore for workshop and they did that surgery for my dad yesterday Mar 31st. Before doing this surgery we were told this is very risky and only 5% survival chances are there. We were fine with that as we have Sai Ram with us. Surgery was planned on Tuesday and for no reason they postponed to Thursday. I am damn sure only Baba made this to get postponed to Thursday. The surgery took 5 long hours and it was a great success. Baba blessed my dad a new life. Though doctors say it’s for short time i believe Baba will bring my dad’s life back to normal and my dad will be getting rid of his heart block and lead a normal life with Baba's grace. Me and my family surrendered in Baba's Lotus Feet. Love You so much Baba. Be with us and bless all Your devotees. Shirdi Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai.
Another experience was after two weeks of my Husband’s recovery, my Son got sick. He started vomiting and stopped eating food. He was very active kid but suddenly he wants to sleep all the time. Normally he don’t want to sleep but during this time as he was sick, he don’t want to get up from bed. He totally stopped taking solid food. We took him to Doctor, doctor confirmed that it was stomach and viral flu. So he has to be on liquids. I was down seeing him lying on the bed whole day without eating food. He didn’t have energy to sit also. I whole heartedly prayed to our Beloved Baba on my child condition and applied Udi daily twice and made him to drink Udi water. After a week my Son recovered and started going to school. It is all because of Sai. Thank You very much Baba for blessing us in each and every situation. Please fulfil my wish and solve the problems which I am facing currently.
One day in my family there has been huge problem created by my brother, me and my mother were crying like anything. I don’t know with whom i can share these except my Baba when i started to office from my home i have prayed Baba like, i have left my mother in home in Your control, You have to take care of her till i come in the evening, after that i have not seen any fights in my home. Recently i had some bite in my leg, it was paining in both the legs. I was simply chanting Baba’s name in my mind. I pray to Baba and applied Udi in my leg and i prayed if my pain gets over with in 9 pm, i will submit my experience in these blog, it’s the miracle of Baba before that time He make my pain got over. Thanks for being with me Baba. Be with me always and shower Your blessings on all of us. I was hoping for that exam, please make me to clear that exam Baba. Om Sai Ram. Love You Baba.
