Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
I understand that experiences are published on first come first serve basis but my humble submission if this can be posted on priority as I wish to disclose to parents and sister via this experience of my husband having lost his job and with Baba's grace having secured another one. Om Sai Ram! The all merciful Baba, I invoke your aid to help me share my journey of experiences with all. First of all thanks Hetalji and team for your continued commitment in maintaining this site. As mentioned in Sri Sai Satcharitra reading about Saints is like keeping Their Company. Reading about Baba and the devotees’ experiences is like keeping His Company. I am ever grateful to Baba for having directed me to this site a month and half ago in my hour of need and helping me to build and strengthen my faith on Him.
I was till about 3 months ago working in India in a reputed MNC at very senior position. My husband had picked up a job outside of India two and half years ago also at a very senior position. We both were doing very well in our respective careers and had continued to stay separately focusing on our jobs till I finally decided to quit my job and join my husband abroad. Like every MNC, I had 3 months notice period which I had to serve. When I tendered my resignation and was serving my notice period, 5 days before my last working day, my husband lost his job. I could not take back my resignation as the backfill had already been hired. Our world came crashing down and within no time the situation completely changed for us. My husband had three and half months to look out for another opportunity. Considering his seniority and pay, it was very difficult to get one in this short window. What we were going through was a very stressful situation which I did not even share with my parents and sisters to avoid passing on any stress to them. I joined my husband and started helping him in his job search. We kept applying and there were no responses. The far and few where we got responses never progressed beyond the HR round. Time was ticking fast and there was no view to what would happen in the foreseeable future.
Amidst all of this, I had faith in my Baba that He had a purpose behind this situation and He will definitely help us. We just needed to have faith and patience. I kept reading Sri Sai Satcharitra and would ask Baba on the Q&A site. He guided me to pray to Lord Hanumanji which I disregarded. Then one Sunday through the Q&A website, He said that you will a have dream, act as per the dream and your troubles will be over. Following Tuesday, I recalled of dream where I was with someone telling how Baba gave me two coins and one of the coin had Lord Hanumanji’s photo on it and that I should pray to Hanumanji. I had goose bumps as I recalled the dream. Immediately I started praying to Lord Hanumanji with devotion to remove our troubles. As I started praying, I could feel that both my husband and I were getting some unknown strength to cope up with the situation. We both were at times sad, dejected and at times angry as well but somewhere deep within, there was a strong faith that before three and half months were over Baba would grace us with a new opportunity. A month and half passed and nothing materialized. Then by Baba’s grace, I hit upon this site and started reading about the devotees’ experiences. It made me positive and was a great reassurance that Baba would not leave us at lurch. I read many post on Nav Guruvar Vrat and a strong desire arouse to observe the same but having read the Sri Sai Satcharitra where Baba disapproves fasting, I was double minded. Then I invoked Baba's aid that He must give me a clear sign whether I should observe the fast or not. I proposed a test on a Tuesday that by Wednesday day end there should be some email from one of the two companies where the interviews had progressed slightly and if that happens I would start the Vrat from Thursday. I kept waiting the entire Wednesday and finally thought that Baba is against my fasting. But at 5 pm in the evening unexpectedly there was an email and as proposed I made all preparation at night to start the Nav Guruvar Vrat the next day. I got up early on Thursday and as I was preparing to start my prayer, I was completely surprised with my husband also expressing his desire to fast. I must share that while, I am an ardent devotee, my husband does believe in Baba but is not a staunch devotee and this was the first time ever he wanted to fast. Taking this as Baba’s will, we both started the Nav Guruvar Vrat.
After the first fast, there was progress with regards to an opportunity with one of the companies. After the second fast, my husband’s current company extended his notice period by a month on their own thereby giving us additional time. This was a great relief for us and we will remain ever indebted to Baba for His grace. One of the job opportunities continued to progress slowly and on the 7th Thursday, we got the confirmation that my husband had been selected. We were extremely relieved and indebted to Baba for saving us and reconfirming His presence and guidance in our lives. We both are now waiting to complete all the nine fasts and do the udyapan ceremony with devotion.
I must also share that during the entire period I continued doing the Sri Sai Satcharitra Parayan, watching Shirdi live darshan and chanting Baba’s name continuously. During one of the live darshans Baba had indicated that very soon we would have the good fortune of visiting Shirdi for Baba’s darshan and blessings and true to His words, we luckily got confirmed ticket reservation for our Shirdi trip immediately after our udyapan ceremony. We are very happy and looking forward to this most awaited trip to start a new chapter of our lives with divine blessings. The last 3 months have definitely brought me closer to my Sai, further strengthened my trust and I have learned to become more patient and tolerant. Baba, please bless and guide us always. Let Your tortoise like glance protect us and remove our afflictions so that we can devout our lives to Your Seva. Please forgive us for the mistakes we have committed intentionally or unintentionally. Anant Koti Brahmand Nayak Raja Dhiraj Yogi Raj Par Brahma Shri Satchidananda Sadguru Sai Nath Maharaj Ki Jai. Om Sai Ram.
My mom got sick recently, she got fits and it happened thrice on the same day. She is diabetic and she has high blood pressure too. This happened on Vinayagar chathurthi when she was making prasadham for pooja. She was hospitalized and she was kept in observation. Doctors said nothing to worry she was normal then. She just had to be in ICU for two days and still they made us to do scans. She had to take MRI, MRV and EEG. MRI showed mild stroke still she was fine and she was normal. They were pretty surprised to see her result. They wanted to know why this happened. They again asked us to take CT Angio for her. She was terrified to take scans, still she said okay. We got to know there was a block in a vein near neck which connects her heart and brain. It was really a painful experience to see her lying in bed. She looked tired still they used to say nothing to worry. They said the block was about 75%. And she had to undergo a surgery to remove the block. We were scared. The Vascular surgeon said like it was a risk. It was like hell to hear that. I was so scared. My mother didn’t know what to do. She was scared too. First they said she was normal nothing to worry but after that they said it was a risk.
I didn’t know what to do. I was searching for Sai Baba's prashanvali. I always used to pray Baba if I panicked about anything. This time also I did the same. That's when I got to visit this blog and I read one of the devotee’s shared experiences. That was Nav guruvar vrat. I prayed to Baba that I want my mother to get discharged by next day itself. And I would do fasting for nine weeks. I was not able to sleep. There were Sai Baba’s photos in few places in that hospital. It's a very big multi speciality hospital. In that night I went to the place where Sai Baba's photo was kept. I prayed to Him and I cried. I wanted my mother to be healthy. I prayed Him that He should change the situation like He used to do in other people's life. He should do a miracle like He always does. I didn’t sleep that night. I kept repeating Sai Baba’s gayatri mantra and other Sai Baba's mantras.
The next day the chief vascular surgeon came and our heart was pounding. He came and checked my mother's condition. He said like this case was different. Though her brain got affected a bit still she was normal. It was a miracle he said. And also block was there, still we do not have to do surgery, let's see if medications were working then would think about it. She is alright now and she can get discharged today itself. She has to reduce her weight and follow a diet, he added. We were happy to hear that. I was very happy but still I was afraid because we had to travel back to home. It's a five hours travel. Doctors said she could travel and she was normal then. Now that's where Baba played His leela. She suffered though, He still protected her. He heard my prayers and she is at home now and started doing her house chore works. I am really happy to see my mother getting back to her normal self. Baba is always with us and blessing us wherever we go. She got to go for a check up after two weeks and after a month they will take CT Angio again. I know Baba is there and her results are going to be Normal. I would say even if you think things won't change. Have faith in Baba. Ask Him, pray and keep chanting His mantras when you are hopeless. Your wish will be granted. You just got to trust Him. Jai Sairam.
The very first one was when like any other girl I wished to be an air hostess so I started giving out interviews. I got selected in one of the international airlines. I was on top of the world but when I was sent for medicals I got rejected on the basis that I had a scar on my left side of my chest. I was completely shocked as I didn't know that before. They said I might have had TB in my childhood or chickenpox which left the scar and heeled on its own. But airlines were not accepting it at all. Then I prayed to Sai Baba and kept Chaliya for my medical to get clear any ways. While I was doing Chaliya, one of the station managers in India was very nice to me and asked me to get the medical done outside. Basically a check of TB test, which takes 3 months. I did that and He as my Baba in Him was communicating with the airlines on my behalf and finally after a long wait the impossible turned out to be possible when airlines saw my test and agreed to sent me to their panel doctor one more time. That doctor again through my Baba wrote a letter to airlines that I have nothing and fit for flying and the good news came right after that. I got accepted with Baba's grace. Just want to tell you while doing chaliya I promised Baba that I will be a good human being and will do good to others and will never think or do any bad to anyone intentionally. He made me a better person as I had my wish granted. Jai Sai Ram Jai Sai Ram Jai Sai Ram.
Everytime I wish for some thing from my Baba, I always promise Him that I will try to be a better person and will try to do good deeds. This is when I was pregnant with my second child, I have a boy as my 1st child but I always wished to have girl child. So during my second pregnancy, I was hopeful that I will have a girl this time. We were in Singapore that time and I went for my ultrasound to know the gender. Here doctor told me it’s a boy again. I was very sad and cried that I always wanted to have a girl but again I don’t know why I didn’t lose hope as I always trust on my Baba and kept Chaliya again with the wish of a girl child which was a kind of impossible thing after ultrasound. This is called miracle of Baba. Before chaliya got finished it was my appointment with the doctor for the check up and this time doctor asked me you know the gender of your child? I said I know but you still don’t tell me (as I only wanted to know after my Chaliya) so I asked her to write in Chinese in my file. She laughed at me but wrote in Chinese the gender of my baby. Now here comes my next visit after my chaliya got over and you all know who knows Baba what she wrote that day in Chinese was GIRL!!!!!!! And I started crying that Babaji did change the world for me many times. Every single time the trust and love for Him gets bigger and stronger. If you believe Him, never lose your hope. Keep doing the good deeds as Baba says. Jai Sai Ram Jai Sai Ram
My hubby is not a temple goer but Baba pulled him and now he is always ready to go to the temple. The place where we lived earlier did not have any temple. We had to drive for an hour and half to visit Baba. But He always looked upon us and blessed us. Both my kids are Baba’s blessings. We came to USA on 22nd July 2015. Life has been a mix of ups and downs. My husband’s nature of work was very stressful. Lots of office politics. We don’t understand any politics. We are both very shy and introverts. After doing so much work in the office all of a sudden my hubby was told to move out of his project and he was treated badly by his senior boss. My hubby himself was in one of the senior positions. The journey from there was disturbing, not to mention absolutely no help from anywhere. They asked him to move out without any other project. He was given some time to do knowledge training to the guy who had joined in my husband’s position. We were shattered. I was already doing Sai divya puja when this news came. There were a mix of thoughts and then a thought came may be this is for good. We keep learning and Baba gave us learning that we should not be blindly trusting people. I don’t know what went wrong and where then I got some confidence that everything will be alright but by the month’s end we had no project. My husband is the only person earning and I felt very helpless. I started doing Parayan and finished saptah parayan and then three proposals came, talk was going. Everything looked promising. I thought Baba blessed me and I got a chance to finish Satcharitra parayan may be will get good project. But nothing happened for few weeks. We had to get a project in order to stay here. Then on raksha bandhan day I made rakhi and tied to our Baba and prayed that please protect Your sister from all the bad things and let good things happen to us. Finally by Baba’s grace he finally got a project and we were relieved.
There are lots of things to tell about Sai Baba and my experiences with Him. I am blessed to be His sister. Thank You Baba for everything. This is just a very tiny gesture of Your sister for the blessings You gave. Baba please blesse all the devotees. Om Sai Ram.
Coming to my experience I am doing Sai nav guruvar vrat. It was a Thursday and I took Baath and was getting ready for office, looking into the mirror and I found no earring on my left ear. I checked it everywhere, in washroom near bucket, my towel and almost everywhere but couldn't find it. I told my mummy, she also started searching for my favourite gold earring and at last when we didn't find it, I left it on Baba. I went to office and asked and searched there too but couldn't find it. I was so sad that why I lost my earring on Thursday, Baba's day. I was really very upset. Next Day also I tried searching for it but couldn't find it, so just kept quite and prayed to Baba to please help me in getting my earring back. Lo today Saturday morning my sister went to washroom and she called me that she had found my earring. Listening to her I was really happy, as well as shocked for the earring which we all were searching was lying suddenly in front of us just beside the bucket in the washroom. Please do make a note that in between this we had cleaned our washroom twice the same day but none of us could see or find my earring. It was purely Baba's miracle that I got back my lost gold earring. Thanks and love You Baba for Your blessings and miracles.
