Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
Looking back now everything was planned from the beginning. I started looking for a job after I resigned from a MNC in August 2015. I resigned from a Retail MNC as an Executive in August 2015 and the reason was, there wasn't any future if I continued to work with the company as an executive. I had to give them 3 months notice and as a result I didn't have time to search for another job or attend interview because it was very difficult to get off on the days we want. Those who work in Retail will know. I believe, finally I had to resign without getting another job and as time passed, came 2016 and it was already now 4 months of unemployment since I resigned. I am still looking for job. To be honest I did get few offers but as I wanted to make it as my last job under another company/person, as I wanted to start my own business after this job. So I was really careful and picky and I came across this famous online company doing walk in interview.
As a person who usually avoided walk in interview somewhat, I went there or lord Sainath wanted me to go there and then everything started. On the way to the interview I saw this famous company brand(X). I will call it Brand X throughout this writing for privacy reason. First it didn't bother me so I continued to the online company and walk in to the interview but I didn’t get the offer and again time passed and finally after few interviews, I got two offers from two well known MNCs.
I chose one of the company and went for training for four days and I felt that something was missing. I also felt it as that was not for me and I resigned on the fourth day. But still had faith in Baba so I went back home and that was when the miracle started to happen, because I didn't tell my parents that I had resigned because I didn't want to make them worried. So I hid this but I dressed up and went outside as if I was working. Everyday it was hell to lie to your parents but I had no choice. By this time it was already an year, August 2016 and I decided to take a vow to not eat rice until I got a job and I would only eat rice again after I visited lord Sainath temple with offer letter. Time passed and I saw that this X company the other day was hiring people online and I applied. Note here as I had lied to my parents that I was still working and I would go out to a coffee shop and sat there applying for jobs and again I saw this company brand as one of the passerby was wearing the X company t shirt. One Tuesday I got a call from this X company to attend interview. I was very happy because they had set the date of the interview on Thursday and immediately after that phone call, I received another phone call from another Japanese company but they wanted me to attend the interview the next day which was Wednesday. I attended both the interviews and I received the offer from the Japanese company. As I didn't hear anything from the X Company and due to desperate situation I took the offer as the salary was higher compared to my previous company but again there was a feeling of something missing and they asked me to start on next Monday. But then something weird happened. My friend asked me to go out hiking on Sunday, one day before my first day to start work. By this time it had been a week since the vow (stop eating rice). After the hiking we were exhausted. I kept thinking about rice due to hunger but at the same time I reminded myself about the vow as I hadn't got the offer letter from the company, I could only eat rice after Monday. My friend brought me to a restaurant and he ordered rice but Sai’s leela is amazing, I completely forgot about the vow and had eaten the rice and half way through I recalled my vow and was shocked and sad and stopped eating. But I tried to calm myself by recalling one incident from Sai Satcharitra chapter 50 Shri Tembe Swami ‘coconut incident’ where Sai Baba advice follows ("Now you need not worry yourself any more about the matter. It was on account of my wish that the coconut was entrusted to you, and ultimately broken on the way; why should you take the responsibility of the actions on you? Do not entertain the sense of doership in doing good, as well as for bad deeds; be entirely prideless and egoless in all things and thus your spiritual progress will be rapid." What a beautiful spiritual instruction Baba gave! And I recalled this and tried to calm my mind.
Then Monday came and I was driving to my workplace and amazingly I saw again a guy wearing the company t-shirt was driving and passed by me and something struck me as though Baba said that is your place. But I started my job joining this Japanese company which was a very bad move as the old staff was leaving. I had to learn everything myself and they were really desperate to get the people to join them. I had to learn the job role. That was not exactly what I wanted to pursue, now I was done! I didn't know what to do? Shocked and confused. I thought this was the punishment for breaking the vow and I decided to quit the job but I couldn’t continue to lie to my parents. After 6 pm on that day I went straight to Sai Baba temple to calm my mind and asked Baba on what to do. You wouldn't believe after the prayer I asked forgiveness from Baba for breaking the vow. After the prayer the person who does the arti read Sai Satcharitra and now listen to Sai leela. He read the exact chapter and story I mentioned above. I almost cried and again took the vow by saying I would only eat rice after I getting the offer letter from the company and placing it at Sai Baba’s feet. I went back home, the next morning I called the company and told them that I didn't want to continue and things didn't go well and I had to lie to parents and dressed up as I am working and go out to coffee shop. I lost all my confidence. But my mom asked why I had stopped eating rice and I said I will eat it next Thursday and time went. On the following Monday I received the call from MD of the X company I had mentioned above and she did a phone interview. Then on Wednesday they confirmed and sent me the offer letter. Can you believe? This was only possible by our Guru. Next day I went to Sai Baba temple as I had promised and I put the offer letter on Baba's feet and completed my vow. I will start working next Monday. Look at all the things that happened. I believe what Sai Baba really wants is trust and patience nothing else. If there is anyone in the same situation as I was, looking for job, more of a right job please be patient. I know it is hard to wait but Baba knows the best for you. Jai Sainath. Hope this gives you some kind of motivation.
I am writing today because this day is a very important day in my life where I actually wanted to bring a change in me and move on accepting the fact I won't be getting married to the love of my life. It's very hard on me but I promised him and myself I will take it and stand strong supporting him in his decisions and I am sure my Baba will help me. I don't want you all to misunderstand he had cheated me, it's because of his situation he is not able to marry me but his love for me will never change. I was never able to digest the fact that he would leave me and go. From 2-3 years held on to him hoping some day might come where we would get married, but I realised this hope of mine is bringing turmoil in his life which is hurting him so badly. Yet he never stopped loving me. It's high time I need to release him from the clutches of my love. I know Baba will help me do this. I know He would help me get over strongly. This blog is dedicated to my Baba and this post to my love. Just want to share something with you.
One day because of some misunderstanding my parents got harsh on me and I was so alone that time that I didn’t even realise what was going on. My senses were off and I couldn’t even think properly and my love told me that from now we will stop meeting frequently and will stop chatting also, that was the most dreadful day of my life. On one side I was not at all talking to my parents and couldn’t even talk to my love also. We got disconnected from the source where we could connect. It was very painful situation for me to digest this thing. I cried day and night but nobody helped me and not even my lover. After sometime I started reading this blog, experienced of Sai Baba and from there I became devotee of Sai Baba and started trusting Him.
On the blog it was written that do 9 guruvar Sai vrat all your desires will be fulfilled. I decided to start 9 guruvar vrat and the next day was Thursday itself. When I completed my first week of vrat my lover came to me and spoke to me that what was the issue? We are trying to get married and then I understood the fact that he loved me very much and he also wanted to marry me. But I told him that leave it to Sai Baba and he will take care of your problem. The very next day my lover came to discuss. And then I told him that leave it to Sai Baba. Everything will be alright. Now I am hoping that Baba will fulfil my desire and I will go with my husband to visit Shirdi. One more request to my Baba that my love is preparing to go to London to settle and now he is waiting for his offer letter. Please do something that he gets his offer letter before his birthday 18th Sep. So that this Birthday of him should become the best birthday ever. Now I just want to say to Baba that please always shower Your blessings on me and never leave me alone in any situation. I have full faith in You and I know that You will make the impossible things possible. While till then I am keeping patience and trust on my Baba that He will surely make us together someday. I trust You will make it right when right time comes. But I pray that no girls should face any disharmony in her life. Just bless all. Every person should have enough understanding to see between right and wrong and should not be driven by opinion of family members. Om Sai Ram.
Even my husband has become a great devotee of Sai Ram, that he shared his experience with me as follows. He asked his friend to perform Nav guruvar vrata which has helped his friend also and in turn thanks my husband for his suggestion to pray to Sai Ram with full faith. One more experience of my husband was, he would close his eyes and pray to Sai Ram telling "God I Would Like To See You Now" and there Sai Ram's image would appear on the window shield of car, or Sai Ram's name on the car's window or behind it. We would always ask people to pray Sai Ram with faith and if possible to perform nav guruvar vrata and He would listen to everyone's prayers. I would pray that all the people in this world who are undergoing troubles should be relieved from it very soon and Sairam will show the correct path. Keep praying and always smile no matter what you are going through in life (good or bad) Om Sai Ram!
Today on breakfast my one co employee said our seniors were very much in bad mood because of employees, as 2 more had reached late to the office. I was praying inside please Sai pa be with me and save me and guess what nothing happened. Today, I had gone for some work asked by my senior, I said I can do it but inside I felt little doubtful as I was new for it. So I asked Sai pa that please help me, be with me during that work and I successfully completed it because of Baba. Om Sai Ram Sai Nath Maharaj ki Jai. Jai Sai Ram.
