Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
I have a plain wish to acquire a decent job that matches up my education, one that suits my 4-years of engineering life. But if life gives all that we wish for, wouldn't that be too plain and easy! I've graduated in 2014 and since then I went through multiple companies but the outcome always resulted in breakdown. Despite my efforts, I successfully dripped in defeat wondering if really I need experience with no odds of the fluke. My failures shouted at me. At that point I believed life is a game and it's a cruel joke. My complication- expectation which is the mother of all frustration, well said. Somehow I've received a call from Deloitte to attend an interview, though I've never registered for it. After completing my sophomore round, I prayed Baba a lot anticipating I'd be processed for the next round, but the opportunity had bygone. Later, I've contacted many relatives of mine seeking for a reference. Then one of my cousins referred me to a company, but unfortunately, I lost it in the last round. I felt like faith is nothing but trifling deception and I unfastened the holy thread bound on my wrist. On the same day during the journey to my home, I went through the same company couple of times for the position of software engineer intending to give my best and proceeded further. But both the times, they shortlisted me for the next round and when inquired regarding the further rounds, I was told that the requirement got fulfilled and my candidature can't be considered any further. This time I felt like I've gone astray and my bad luck has whacked me over and above. Not just that, but I was processed for a start up company and they said that I'll receive a call within few days, which gave me new whims towards my career.
Few weeks went, past very easily and not once that I heard from them. Meanwhile, I went behind a BPO to rake in few bucks and it went on till 3 months. Each and every day I worked there fanning the flames of self-loathing and ended up in bewilderment of not knowing for me choosing that job. I completely felt out of place just like a fish out of water. Later, I resigned it and felt superfluous to await a call from the start up anymore. So, I called up the HR, unable to contain the oddity, and he said that they have no requirements currently. As it's said "It never rains but it pours" always comes true in my case and I felt like misfortunes tend to follow me in rapid succession. I used to weep a lot before Baba asking to burn my sins away, as I can't go through these sufferings anymore, since 2 long years passed away in this job hunt process. Last year, I went to Peddamma temple (in jubilee Hills) and purchased a coconut in a shop close to the temple, but the shopkeeper was short of change. So I was asked to purchase an item in exchange for my money. So, unknowingly I caught hold of Sri Sai Divya Pooja book just by looking at Baba's image on it without analyzing its title completely. The sole reason for my purchase was to counterbalance the loss of change, and then I completed my darshan and returned home.
In the Feb of 2016, I suddenly found the book somewhere around my shelf, and went through it along with the procedures of completing it successfully. With plenty of hopes and expectations towards my future I started Sri Sai Divya pooja (determined to do it for 5 weeks), but I was taken aback to attend interviews any longer as started to feel very low for myself. Exactly, by the end of 5th Thursday i.e. on 5th week of Wednesday, I went for an interview (for a start up company) and got through it. My heart is filled with gratitude for Baba as my wish came true and I'm utterly happy as my 2 years of job hunt has come to an end! Anant Koti Brahmand Nayak Raja Dhiraj Yogi Raj Par Brahma Shri Satchidananda Sadguru Sai Nath Maharaj Ki Jai. OmSaiRam.
I have a very close friend in office and we travel in the same office cab. We are so close that we share each and everything even the family problems. She is younger to me and she is not much matured, always seeks my help in every aspect of her life like family matter/office issue/pg problems. I feel happy to suggest her. The most annoying thing is she repeats her mistake every now and then, even after many warnings. One day we all were in cab, on the way to home. I did a mistake which goes here. I was fed up with her casual attitude and I discussed her all family problems with other two of my cabmates. At that time she was listening music, so I thought she has not heard of our conversation where I told wrong things about her saying in spite of my suggestions and help she does the mistakes etc.. Even I told I just pray God that He helps her getting married soon to a very good guy so that she can learn correct things soon and be in the proper way. Intentions behind my discussion were not at all wrong but she heard all our conversation and she felt so bad even I can’t imagine. She had tears in her eyes thinking how I can discuss about her personal things in wrong way in front of others. She is absolutely correct. This was a big mistake done from my end. I realised my mistake and I texted her, the same day. Said sorry many times. I felt ashamed, thinking how can I speak about my close friend at the back of her but Sai knows my heart as I discussed her wrong ways and prayed for correct things to happen with her soon. I was sure that she will take it in other way and our friendship will end.
Next day it was her birthday, I did not want to spoil her day. So, was trying to patch up with her on the dispute day. Here my best friend comes - Lord Sai. I just prayed Him Baba you know me, I have not discussed about her intentionally. Just forgive me for my mistake and patch up our friendship and make her birthday a great day. Next day everything was alright with my Baba's grace. She texted me saying "No worries dear, it’s just a small misunderstanding and you are my forever friend. I do not want to lose you." I felt so happy reading that message. For 200% sure Sai made her to understand our value of friendship and make her to forgive my mistake. I went to her pg and wished whole heartedly and gifted her. I just learnt a great lesson on that day, we should not speak ill of others in front of anyone because no one is perfect in this world. So we should adjust and love all, keeping mind pure. Thanks to my lord Sai who corrected me with a small experience with great learning. Thanks for reading my experience. Now I have placed my life at His feet. Once the Lord Sai steps in your life, miracles do happen! It’s my own experience. Believe in Sai and He will give you, all the desired things at right time. Follow Sai, lead a meaningful life. Om Sai Ram.
I got to know about Baba through a television show on star plus dedicated to Him, and as the belief in Him grew strong so did the urge to visit Shirdi. The first time we planned for the Shirdi Yatra, the tickets were booked but were in the waiting list. My father had absolute faith that the tickets will be confirmed. Our train was at 3.pm, but not until the morning were the tickets confirmed, it was only at 1.pm when the chart was prepared that we got fully confirmed tickets and the joy of rushing to the station was incomparable. Shri Sai Satcharita says that it is only when He desires that we get the ultimate desire to visit Him and when He calls His devotees He ensures that they reach without a hurdle. The same happened with us. We had boarded a train bound to Kopergaon, but while on our journey, an aged man sitting on the coach opposite to ours started asking my father about where he is going and my father told him that we were bound to Shirdi and will get down at Kopergaon which is quite near to Shirdi. Then he told us that the train won’t stop at Kopergaon even though it is a station but you cannot get down, you must get down at Manmad Station which is the next station and take another train or a private taxi to reach Shirdi. Had this little conversation not happened we would have been struggling in an unknown state but Baba ensured that we reached Him safely without any problems.
Not to mention that we reached Shirdi safe and sound. The journey went very well, looking at Baba sitting in the Samadhi Mandir surrounded by flocks of people. Till then I had only heard that you can feel Him, but it was only when I looked at Him that my tears proved the fact that He indeed was right there beside me. Like mentioned earlier, even the tickets to our way back home were not confirmed and did not even get confirmed after the chart was prepared. My parents went to the ticket counter to get tickets to the general coach, because we had to go back. But Baba still had to ensure that we face no hurdle. While waiting in the queue there to buy the tickets, a man called my dad from behind and asked him where he wants to go, my dad told that our tickets of the 3rd AC did not get confirmed so we are buying tickets to the general coach. He offered my dad the exact number of tickets that we needed i.e. 4 , that too of the 2nd AC coach. It is still a mystery as to why out of all the people in the line he only called my father and offered the tickets to him and he had the exact amount of tickets as we needed. With our bundle of miracles our first Yatra to Shirdi did justice to our faith in Baba. May He be with all as He is with me. Have faith in Him, trust Him in your bad days, see Him in all beings and you will surely be benefited. Jai Sai Nath
Meanwhile we started liking each other and firmly decided whatever might be the problem we will have to face and never give up trusting Baba will not leave us, I started Nava Guruvar vrath and started donating food to the needy and pets, whenever possible used to go to Sai mandir. Karthik rejected all other alliances which he used to get. His uncle told them to see flower prasada with our family goddess (it means both the families assemble at a particular temple and ask question with goddess, if flower falls from right side of the idol seems to be a positive sign and other side means a negative), both were so disturbed, if at all it gives on the left side all our struggles will go in vain, nothing could be done further. But I had complete hopes in Baba, though Baba is incarnation of all God definitely He will make flower fall on the right side. It happened finally our wedding date was fixed. My sister was going to Shirdi a month before my marriage and I sent her my wedding card to take blessings of Baba and definitely call Baba in my wedding. The day next of my marriage few neighbours visited us at groom’s place. Karthik walked towards me with one of the gifts which neighbour’s had given. I was overwhelmed looking at the statue of Shirdi Sai Baba. My happiness had no bounds. Dear Devotees please do keep hopes on Baba with faith and patience; He will always give us more than what we expect. He Himself pulled all of us towards Him and He knows better how our future should be. Sri Samarth Sadguru Sainath Maharaj ki jai.
Later in the year 2012, I again did pooja for my second wish and did Nav vrath Pooja. This is for the reason that I was waiting for conceiving a baby for a very long time. Also I have suffered from miscarriage once in 2011 September. With the help of Baba’s Grace I got pregnant again in 2012. Soon after my baby’s birth I have suffered from several problems and still I am, but I totally forgot Baba. Gradually the Baba’s presence within me has got vanished which I have not realized. I am encountering lots and lots of problems for which I prayed all other God but ended up in pain and vain! No use!! Now after 4 years 2012-2016 (I have become mad by not thinking about Baba ji). In the year 2016 March I joined the new company where all the people in this office are Sai Baba’s devotees! All were involved in praying Baba all the time. Slowly I started realizing, how I have become such a cunning woman by not thinking of the one who has given everything I wanted. (Except one most important thing for which I am doing Sai Nav vrath Pooja again, sooner I will be posting that also). I have lost my mind by not thinking Hetalji for years and Years! (How cruel am I?). Now, I surrendered my entire ego and pride to Sai Baba, I am nothing in front of Sai Baba and His grace, miracles, leelas. I should have been waiting patiently for His blessings but I lost my peace the day when I forgot Baba. Now, I am realizing my fault, and reading Sai Satcharitra everyday! Looking for the next most important thing in my life to happen! Dear readers (Sai Baba’s Devotees) please pray for me and my Kid! Thanks. Shree Sainath Maharaj ki jai!
