Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
I am married and living in the US for last several years and I have two children and work full time in IT. My experience would be very long. Please bear with me. Please kindly forgive me for any mistakes Baba since this is my first experience of posting this miracle. It is elaborate because I wanted to mention with all the details Baba showed His presence by helping in most tough course I have taken and helped me in getting a degree by introducing me to the most wonderful people in the form of faculty at the university. I did my bachelors in India long back and suddenly I felt like I should continue my education here in the US in order to purse Masters degree. Regular bachelors in India is three years while it is four years here in the US. In order for people with non four year degree, they have to study the extra year to get a four year degree to pursue masters degree in the US. Though, I have always wanted to get that and tried a few times, I was not able to complete with family commitments and a full time IT job all throughout last several years. In the year 2014, I was rejected a job in the last minute after completing all the formalities due to lacking a 4 year degree. I was very disappointed and felt the time has come to pursue this degree from here and finish it. With lot of push from my husband, he forcefully applied to the university, the same one where I had pursued few courses in the past when I just moved to US after marriage.
Initially, I was reluctant to go back to the same university due to some old, bad memories, nothing to do with that university in particular but (some people I had interacted during that time frame in my life who have caused immense pain to me and almost a night mare which I could never come out when I did those initial courses. However, I didn't have lot of options since I had all my India transcripts and some course credits there and didn't want to try new place again and start from scratch. With all seriousness, I went to the same place. I had the most amazing experience this time, fully with Baba's grace. When I first stepped in to the place, I was not ready at all to do this but after having a few initial conversations, I was redirected to an accelerated program office for working professionals in the same university which I was totally un aware of. I was so worried that I would have to study three, four years again to get a degree from the US, That accelerated program was just a blessing for me which is also another miracle of my Sainath. When I went to the office, I was totally in a confused state as what I would do and what major I could pursue and what degree I would get. All I asked her was that I need a degree from here by just studying an year more, using all my India course credits. Amazingly, the advisor put together all my course work from India and that was a lot of study I have done and some courses from the same university and requested for few course waivers and gave me an academic plan which was like getting the degree in exactly 16 months. Also, I had the educational evaluation done long back after I moved to the US. That plan seemed too good to be true. I was able to use all my credits from India as well as from this place which I have done in the past.
There was one particular course I did which was very tough on me which was statistics. My major in the past was sciences and I was always afraid of Math and Stat. This course was especially challenging and weekly tests were there which I was very scared of. I got pretty sick with flu, fever and cold which continued back to back and I had to deal with emotional issues personally I did my first three tests really bad and didn't have any clue that I would pass this course. That, too an accelerated course of 8 weeks and classes on 2 days a week to get the degree in the set time frame. One day after finishing my midterm exam, I came home at night and I was very disappointed with the way I did the exam. The classes were from 6 PM to 9 PM in the evening, I used to leave home at morning 7:30 AM -drop my child at the bus for school and leave to work all day for 8 hours and the drive to the university at 4:40 Pm and go to class at 5:30 PM and then come back at 10 PM at night. It was such a hectic schedule with every point of destination being 40 minutes drive without traffic, I would come home on some days at 10 PM, clean the kitchen and home and then finish homework from my other classes. I used to take two courses every 8 weeks session. It was insanely busy and hectic routine especially with a full time IT job, family, kids and social life with friends. Most people in abroad know what life will be like here.
When I was sleeping one night after the midterm exam which I failed miserably, I saw a vision like Baba was sitting some where with wooden logs on His head. It was like a sketch picture. If I am an artist, I would have sketched it. With in a minute, Baba was able to get up and stand straight with some logs. That dream/vision made me interpret like Baba is going to surely take my stress off from my head in the form of this course meaning He would help me pass this course. After this, remaining all the exams, I was exceptionally focussed and I did extremely well. The professor himself was astonished seeing my improvement from almost three failed tests to complete A's and B's. I worked hard but Baba was there every minute with me and took away all the tension before each exam so I could focus better and do the exam well. I was surprised myself seeing the result and I was able to complete the course with a B- since the course grade is the cumulative of all the tests which is fairly good and amazing when compared to having to repeat the course and loosing time and money. The professor was very good and helped me a lot to understand the concept. Not only this one, I had the most wonderful faculty who guided me through out this process in all the courses. I had lot of positive influence and encouragement from my professors and I always tried to do my best in all the courses, despite family situations, busy schedule and work schedules. I did the best courses that suit my work life and I did very well in almost all of the classes I had taken with A's. I came across amazing people and finished my degree in the set time frame.
Everything I did gave me immense satisfaction and joy, that I missed all these years. Some people have personally touched me and influenced me so positively that I have the highest regard for them which will continue for the rest of my life. I always felt that Baba had introduced these amazing people to me to make me successful and be filled with positive energy. Two weeks back my commencement happened and really that was my best and most memorable day in my life, which I will cherish forever as a sweet memory. It was not because of the accomplishment but the feeling of satisfaction of a job well done miraculously within given time, in-spite of all the hurdles in the form of family, work. I accelerated my courses wherever possible like taking a three week winter intersession course and wrote some CLEP exams to get a course waiver. I am so much more happier and confident now. My previous experiences and bad memories have been replaced my wonderful memories of good relationships with people, success, good grades and I have the highest regard and personal connection with the university and the faculty.
I am now applying for grad school to do my masters and I am so much looking forward to being in grad school in the next couple of months. I am sure Baba will help me sail through this as well and I will sure post the miracle after I finish my grad school. Thank You so much Baba. Whatever joy, I have experienced is a truly Baba's blessing which is the best birthday gift my Baba had given to me. I never realized this would give such immense happiness and satisfaction that nothing else gave me in my life. I celebrated my birthday joyfully, after clearing this major roadblock after years and years of postponing this degree. Jai Sainath and Pranams to the lotus feet. Jai Jai Sai Ram! Devotees, please surrender yourself completely to the lotus feet of Sai Baba and He will help you through every hurdle in life. My life is much more of a joy and blessing compared to my past, truly with Baba's grace. Trust Him fully and surrender and all your problems, long cherished wishes and everything will be fulfilled. Jai Sai Ram.
In the year 2009, my dad had court and law problems, caused by his company and was put up in jail for a month. We were very depressed and used to visit my aunt once in a while. During this time, my aunt, I and my mom went to a shop for getting some stationary items for my little cousins. Mom saw the idol of Baba and she badly wanted to purchase it. But lack of money made her to hesitate. My aunt too disagreed. So we paid the bill for rest of the items and went home. When we reached home, wonders of wonder, Baba's idol, which mom wanted to purchase was in there. I immediately checked the bill to see the cost of the idol and i couldn't believe it wasn't even added. Mom got closer to Baba and began worshipping Him. After a month, dad was released, but very soon he died of heart attack. It was very devastating. I and my mother underwent endless problems. We thought our life was going to end. The troubles started in 2009 and went on till the mid of 2014. In between I got into bad friendships. None of them had any good impact in my life. It affected my life in all possible ways, especially my studies. I and my mom drifted apart for some reason so that made me to seek attention and love elsewhere. But, I am grateful that, I came out of all that safely with the blessings of my Baba.
Baba wanted me to finish my Karma and pull me towards His Feet which I did. Baba's ways are enigmatic. He alone knows what works for His devotees. It's unbelievable how much Baba loves me. I need to make a note that I began reading Sai Satcharitra (English version) in the year 2014, in the month of June. My wish was of course fulfilled. That's when I got closer to Baba's wonderful feet. The miracles of reading and listening to His life stories are wonderful. Anything is possible with the love and blessings of Baba. Now I and my mom are living happily with little financial commitments but I am sure it will all get solved very soon. I can't imagine how my life would be without Baba. He is the oxygen that I inhale. My experience with Baba is endless. But I will save it for later. I will very soon upload my other experiences too. I request the devotees to remember Shraddha and Saburi. Baba loves His devotees to an extreme extent. He will never leave us. He is right beside us. Peace Be To All.
