Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
We have a Sai group here in my place. We do group puja's on every Thursday and have satsangs every now and then. Since my involvement in this group I have been experiencing Sai's presence a lot. I had many experiences of Sai in my life. But would like to share one here. I had done Sai Sathcharithra Parayan for a week for one of my brother who is having very tough time getting a job and not settling in his life. I started this on Ganesh Chathurti on Sunday. Finished it on Saturday and went to the Hindu temple here at my place which also has Sai Baba’s Murthi there. I wanted Sai to give me some indication that He accepted my prayers. Made some prasad to offer Him. At the temple I had asked the pandit to offer it to Sai Baba. He offered the prasad to Sai and gave arati to Him.
The temple had some special program going on by ISCON followers. We also sat down and I started reading Lalitha Sahastranamam. In the mean while there was lecture on Bhagavat Geetha by some person from the ISCON temple. He started saying about the 10 things that are there in the Bhagavat Geetha. I kept listening half mindedly as I was reading Lalitha Sahastranamam. He started off by saying that the first thing is to follow Krishna and walk on the path that He has laid for us. He read a shloka from the Geetha. 'Tadviddhi Pranipatena Pariprashnena Sevaya, Upadekshyanti Tejnanam naninastattwadarshinah' I realised half way that he was saying the same shloka that Baba and Nanasaheb had conversation about in the Chapter 39. I was shocked listening to it. This might not be just a coincidence for me. Out of thousands of shlokas in the Bhagavat Geetha he started with the shloka that is mentioned in the Satcharithra and my attention went towards that while I was not giving attention to that. It was Baba who was speaking through him to show me His presence and accepting my prayer. After that there was Ganesh Visarjan in the temple that day. They had a small procession around the temple and they immersed the idols in the temple lake. They accepted Ganesh Murtis from the devotees too for this. I hadn't taken mine there as hadn't purchased mine from the temple. They let people to carry the small idols that they have. I went ahead for one of them. Another miracle here.
The idol that I received had a red Mata Rani's chunni wrapped on it, some fresh flowers and a red thread on it. Out of all the Ganesh Idols that they had, two had some yellow clothes on them. But this was the only one that had flowers, chunni and the thread. After we stared the procession me and my two daughters took turns in carrying the Idol. When we were walking, a young lady came and gave my daughter a paper bag and asked to immerse her Idol too which was in the bag. After taking a few steps to our utter surprise we noticed that the bag that the lady gave and my daughters legging are the exact same colour and design. She wore leggings which was pink and white zigzags. They both were the same. All these small moments made me realize Baba’s presence and blessings, as though Baba is with me and around me. Thank you Sai. I would like to pray to Baba and ask Him to help my brother in getting a good job and let him settle in his life. I also would like all the readers to please do pray for my brother. Om Sai Nathayanamaha. Om Sai Ram.
To come to my experience, before some days as usual I left home saluted Baba at mandir and left for office. Here in Kolkata we have heavy traffic in the morning and I was crossing by the busiest road in the city. In a few metres away from a traffic signal a taxi stopped seeing the yellow signal and behind it was a Honda city. I was in normal speed say 15-20kms/hr and with a difference of say 1.5 feet from the car. According to my calculation I could easily dodge the car and stand next to it but collided with the car tail light. My bike and me could easily make the sharp cut but the last two fingers of my left hand rammed into the tail light of car. I fell down with my bike and to my surprise and with Baba’s grace unhurt but my left hand ring finger was terribly injured with a deep cut on it due to the collision with the tail light. As I was totally in a state of shock the people out there gathered and made me and the bike stand. As soon as I had a look at my finger I was shaking like hell remembering Baba’s gayatri mantra as it goes: “ Om Shri Shirdi Vasai Vidimahe…Sachidanandaya Dhimahi…Tano Sai Prachodayat”. The people out there started pouring water on the cut and to my knowledge I lost atleast half glass of blood out there. The owner of the Honda city came out to be of acquaintance and he took me to the hospital. Out here I would like to state as mentioned earlier that the morning hours are the peak hours in the city still as I collided and fell, there was no car behind me to get the accident and the worst thing to happen as if Baba has made sure that I should be unhurt without a single scratch excluding the cut on finger.
This is our Baba. He will always take care of His children at any place in this world. His statement comes true “that whenever a devotee is about to fall I will stretch my hands to save him”. Now I come to the hospital part: the doctor advised for stitches but I refused as I was in a panic situation. The owner of the car too requested for the stitches but I refused. The doctor said that if I won’t agree then the blood won’t stop. Then I bandaged the finger with ointments and rest of the medical therapy. I visited two more doctors within 3-4 days of the incident, they too told me the same but I was sure that my Baba will cure the entire wound without stitches only with the application of Udi. My family and friends told me that the wound will take atleast 1-2 months to heal and will leave a mark on the finger but what Baba wishes is known only to him. To the surprise of all, my wound healed within 10 days from the date of the above mentioned incident with the process of dressing it every alternative day and application of Udi when undressed. This is the power of Baba and His Udi. I would also like to mention that the wound as stated above was not a small wound it was a deep cut on 1. 5” inches where I could see my entire flesh inside. Thanks to my Deva the Saviour…my Hero, my Guru, and my Friend. Loads and loads of love to You Deva, missing You since long. Shirdi trip on my mind Baba. Please call during these holidays. Sai..Sai…Samasta Loka Sukhi Bhavantu.
Another miracle came in my life when I became a proud mom of a beautiful daughter on 1st July 2014. My parents and my in laws couldn't come at the time of my delivery. But with the blessings of Sai Baba I could manage and everything happened very smoothly. Now my daughter is 2 years old. Everything was happening fine. But on May 26th after coming from India my daughter had blood in stools. I was so scared. Suddenly I took her to the hospital. The doctor told it might be due to constipation and prescribed some medicines. I gave her the medicines and still it was not working. We took her to the hospital in emergency. When we reached to the hospital, she was very sick. Her eyes were puffed and her body was paled. Immediately the hospital staff gave her one bottle of blood and iv. The next day they did all the tests. At the same time I was also treating as I had ectopic pregnancy. We both were sick and nobody was there to help. My husband was helpless. The only thing I was doing is that I was praying Sai Baba. Three days we were in hospital but the doctor could not find any reason as they did all the tests for my daughter. We were hopeless. Three days my daughter suffered a lot. Finally the doctor told that we are going to discharge your baby as we could not find anything. We were hopeless and thought that we are going to lose our daughter. We took her home and cried a lot. Still I was praying Sai Baba. Still I had faith in Sai Baba that my daughter will get well. Next day miracle happened and my daughter passed the normal stools. After that she is fine. And I think it happened only because of Sai Baba. Without medicine she got cured. Now she is going to preschool. I always pray Sai Baba and say thanks for helping me in each and every critical situation.
Recently due to my personal life situation I didn’t visit the mandir for quite some time. Last Sunday (11.9.2016) morning I was rounding for my weekly family purchase requirements to different shops at around 9 a.m and suddenly my inner thinking or a thought process was in mind to go to that temple. I was wondering why all of a sudden these feelings arouse my mind and then I was finished my all purchase and gave to my wife and started to go Sakthi Shirdi Sai mandir. Then suddenly my wife interfered and asked me to take breakfast and go out and she asked where I was going so urgently. I didn’t tell her the truth but told her that some urgent work was there and I would come after 15 minutes and would take breakfast. Then I started my bike and drove towards temple and thinking why Sai wanted me to come to His mandir and see Him all of a sudden. Thinking like a child - that Sai wanted to see me because I stopped going there in recent days. That is why Sai wanted to see me like a craving mother wants to see her child. I parked my bike and entered the mandir. In that mandir one Sai sister (don’t know her name) is working as an office employee and one guy doing purchase activities also working as regular employee and his name is Mr.Chandra sekar. They know me like other Sai devotees who come to that mandir. Now continuing my story. When I entered the mandir main steps and was walking, that Sai sister saw me entering and rushed from her office seat and came towards me and told me "what a surprise sir, yesterday night ( 10.9.2016-saturday) me and chandra sekar sir was enquiring about you and discussing why he (i.e. me) is not coming now-a-days. Now you are here". I was so shocked and dumbfounded and speechless for a minute. Then came to consciousness and told her that "suddenly I felt like coming here sister". Both incidences are co-related. That time Mr.Chandra sekar was not there. Me and that Sai sister was amazed about our Sai. That whole Sunday I was wondering about Sai Maharaj. How come it happens. I am wondering still the way Sai sister and brother were talking about me previous day evening and next day morning I got this feeling and went to mandir. If anybody can imagine themselves in my shoes and in your mind or dream if you can see this drama and feel, you can enjoy our Sai Maharaj’s grace. Humble pranams. I am attaching Sai Maharaj’s photo of that mandir taken on a recent function.
