Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
Sai My Life and Survival! Om Sairam. These 3 are the breathing words for my life. I would like to thank Hetalji and entire team working on this website by helping us read and share the experiences. May Baba bless you and your family with a health, wealth and prosperity in your lives. First, I would like share some of the experiences of Baba about his Omniscience and Omnipresence and helped me in all my carryings and later prayer request about my survival or to reborn again (you can understand while reading this). 1.We were travelling for flight for domestic in US, we didn’t carry passport because we thought that for domestic travelling it’s not needed, so TSA people caught us but after a long interaction, they allowed us to travel, this only happened by Baba’s Grace. 2. On My Birthday I got up late and we had to travel long and attend an event, so my hubby was telling that we couldn’t go because it was late and moreover it were holidays, so lot of traffic and crowd was expected in the event. But I wished to visit that place so we decided to start for an event. By Baba’s Grace we didn’t face any problems during the journey. Even though we travelled late we caught the bus in the morning and night and reached home safely.
3. We were returning from the vacation by flight, so we were supposed to carry only very limited luggage. We thought our luggage meets minimum requirements but during boarding the flight, people were telling that we would have to pay 60$, the items we carrying were lesser than that. So we tried to remove all the items and get luggage adjusted, still they were not satisfied. So I prayed to Baba to show grace on me so that I will visit temple next Thursday with Prasad and offer some Dakshina. Then the same person came while entering into the Gate/terminal. So I expected that he will definitely ask for paying for luggage but he didn’t utter single word while we were carrying luggage. This makes me dumb how soon he changed his mind. It only happened with my Guru’s Grace Sai Baba.
Baba is everything to me, without Him I can’t expect my life and can’t lead to, because Sai Ram(Air) is important for breathing and survival of life without that am no more. He has showed infinite number of Leelas to me and I know His love and presence because if He is not present in my life I will be no more. But now a days am losing my courage because of my situation in office while starting my second career and other factors this is all because of Maya. I don’t know why Baba is not getting me rid of this. I don’t know what He wants me to become and I think only prayers can help. I only remember Him and hold His feet always because my situation in office is worst. I have a good knowledge on subject and kind hearted but don’t have life skills(survival skills)that why people treat me as an exception and think that they will dominate me and whatever I will say, they would be debating on that and making my statement as false and insulting in front of team members and nobody is there to support me in the discussions. I can support myself but am praying I should have that courage and fluency in English. I have to fight alone that is myself, am loosing hopes because I don’t have any friends to suggest what is correct and wrong because from my childhood only Baba is my friend. But He will never talk with me not even in dreams. I am carrying always lot of pain alone because of this my health is degrading. Actually I was a very good student in my school and engineering days. For communication skills itself I got so many gifts. I was not topper in college but was familiar in class because of my skills, determination, courage and talent and by Sai’s Grace I got a job in Campus. Then I started working. During my work I got excellent relationship with team members and managers and they had good confidence on me and my work. I also got awards ‘Highest Production Awards’ around a year. Then later because of my family constraints I had to get married and I left job. Then immediately I was carrying so my hubby did not allow me to do job search for my career. So I have completely forgotten about my career and thought that I will be as housewife and other reason was it was recession time. But one day while returning from AYYAPPA Pooja me and my hubby enquired about openings and got a good feedback. So by Baba’s Grace after 2 ½ years I thought of starting my career again and got a job with good salary and started professional life as professional woman, if Baba didn’t show the path for my career again then I would be at home itself. So His grace only helped me to step into IT.
But day by day instead of improving I am degrading by losing all my confidence and communication skills. Since childhood I was topper in school and college and got good recognition anywhere I went and was setting an example for good and giving motivational speech to my juniors. But now I am an example for bad (lack of confidence). I don’t know why Sai doing like this? He has taken away from me, my confidence and gave a job. How can I survive in this world without courage? I want to be reborn and see myself. I don’t know when Sai will bless me and give courage in my life? I thought of not relating all this because such a big story but am in this situation since 6 years and thinking all these things my health is affecting mentally and day by my career experience is leading but maturity is lagging.
Generally if a student first fails and then passes, he will feel happier but if a student who is always first and later fails then his pain is infinite, because he doesn’t know the taste of that, now am in this condition. I have forgotten the taste of success in my career and I am fed-up about the taste of failure. Also initially my kid was speaking properly but now he started stammering and it’s in severe state. All this has made me mentally sick and I am not able to tolerate life. As per above experiences Sai is present in my life else I would have been no more but am not sure why my career life is like this? Dear Sai Devotees, Please pray for me and my kid. I can trust Sainath and He can only help us. Om Sri Satchithanandha Samartha Sadhguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai!
Om Sai Ram! It was during (approximately) third week of July 2011 during my vacation in India that my husband called me and told “shall we go to Shirdi?” He is not a strong believer of God, he has his own way of praying within himself unlike me. Although I knew about Baba I was not a Sai devotee. Since it was at the end of my vacation I told my husband that we have only few days left, let’s think of it next time. August 1st 2011 we returned from vacation and on the first day when my husband resumed his duty he was called by his manager asking him to come with laptop and was taken by surprise. They just handed over termination letter which may be they had in mind during his vacation as he was going through severe mental tensions at work. It was a shock for both of us as it was our first experience and were not prepared for such situation. I was so weak to take this shock and cried day and night. We just informed one of his friends about this incident and his sister is a staunch Sai devotee, being my neighbour she came to visit me and handed over a small photo of Baba and told He will take care. It was during mid August 2011. This is how Baba came to my house.
I just placed Baba in my Pooja mandap and prayed like the way I was praying to other Gods. Although there was a temple in our city I used to visit only twice a year during my kids birthday. It never came to my mind to visit temple when I was going through such a tough time. I tried hard with all my colleagues, friends and my boss for references for a job for my husband. But nothing worked and it was always a negative response at the final stage. It was terrible experience with so many disappointments and felt no hopes for life. On the third week of Dec. 2011, I visited temple with my colleague on Thursday. Just stood in front of Baba and prayed and returned home. Something made me feel to visit temple again next week. This is Baba’s power to pull His devotees! Since then I started visiting every week to Temple and used to stand in front of Baba and cry for my husband’s job. Ever since I started visiting temple I was getting positive energy and thoughts for life within myself. It was March first week, while my husband was sleeping with no hopes and he got a call from his friend that one of his friends will call for interview. It was an urgent position. My husband had an interview next day that was March first week. I didn’t realize at that moment that it was Thursday when he had an interview as I was going through terrible stress. Before he could reach home on the interview day he got a call that he had been selected and offer letter was in process. His offer was much more than his previous salary. This was just Baba’s leela. All this happened within 9 visits of my Thursday temple visits.
Since there was almost 70% increase, including over time we could cover up all the losses. Since his job was in bank he was always insecured about his job, after few months he got the information that they will be downsizing the staff. Out of the blue his friend with whom he was working came as a blessing in disguise. His friend got an offer for a very high position in one of the company and also it was our time to visit Shirdi, Baba’s Leela is beyond imagination. Few weeks before visiting Shirdi his friend called him and told him to forward his CV to fix position for my husband in his company. We visited Baba in August 2013 and after his return, his job process went through and in Jan. 2014 he joined a new company for still higher salary. One more experience with joy, I would like to share that during my hard time I never thought I would get any promotion in my job as my position does not have growth. One fine day I went to my boss in year 2012 and told I would like to move to some other department as I need growth in my career. To my surprise due to my sincere work my boss did not want me to move to some other dept and decided of changing my title and putting forward the request for promotion for me. This process really requires lot of justification to the management and finally it was approved and I was promoted.
One more experience it is almost 17 years I have been putting back the thought of going for driving as I am very weak person and had lot of road fear. Since my colleague who was dropping me was going to retire, I thought I have no choice then to go for driving. Prayed Baba and started my driving with so many failures, frustration and disappointments. It took 3-4 months for me to pass through the test. Every time I failed I thought it was Baba’s wish as He wants me to be through as I will be driving with my Kids and He wants me to be safe. Which is really true, I passed the driving test by Baba’s grace and after 3 days I drew to my office alone which none of my friends and colleagues could believe, as they knew how much fear I used to have. This is all my Baba’s support and blessing which is beyond my imagination. During the hard times in 2011, I never imagined we would be having two cars and moving to 2 Bedroom flat. I still visit temple every Thursday and enjoy Baba’s darshan. I am going through rough phase now, still have faith with Baba that whatever comes in life good or bad is as per His will and for the best. I and Baba both know the reason of this phase of my life. I have been reading Sai Satcharitra every day, this has made me to change my attitude towards any problem. I am taking it positively and have full faith in Baba that He is going to take care. Reading Sai Satcharitra has also improved my temperament and personality as I am not getting angry and annoyed like before. I am trying my best to apply the principle of Sai Satcharitra in my life so that I can be a good human being, and praying Baba to guide me on the right path and reform me to a good human being with polite nature. I am sure Baba has His own plan and will not let His devotees down. Om Sai Ram…Om Sai Ram…Om Sai Ram.
I came to know about Sai Divya Puja through this site and another website (www.luvSai.wordpress.com), which explains the procedure to do almost all pujas for our Baba, very clearly. I had already completed 5 weeks of the puja when another problem came up and I promised to do it again, this time for 7 weeks. On Thursday, 18th August 2016 (3rd week of the puja), I had to visit my Mom’s hometown with her. I decided to get up earlier than usual, and finish the puja before leaving for station. But on that day, due to short of time despite getting up early, I had to chant Sai Ashtotharam without offering flower petals and I asked Baba to forgive me. At the same time I decided to imagine that am offering the petals while chanting the naamam from the printout. Then I really don’t know what happened, I saw myself in another place offering Lotus flowers while chanting the naamam. Next thing I saw was from the feet upwards, a beautiful image of Lord MahaVishnu, in yellow dhoti appearing slowly. I could see just His right hand blessing and one arm holding the Sudarshana chakra. I was so stunned that I lifted up my head to see His face and I saw looking at portrait of Baba (one we have in puja), smiling at me very lovingly as if He is going to say something. I sat looking at Him not realising that tears were rolling down and was feeling chilled. It had still not registered as to what happened when I heard Baba’s voice saying “Beta, aage padho” (continue reading naamam). Every time I have a doubt, I just close my eyes and tell Baba. Yes, now I get to hear Him speak. That happened, without asking, as if to shake me out of a dream. I completed the naamam but kept thinking what had happened to me! Next day, I wrote it on comments on this website and got wonderful replies. I am humbled that Baba gave such a wonderful darshan, knowing very well, that I have done so many bad karmas in past life and this one too. Despite all these bad karmas, He still took me under His refuge to help me work it all out before He comes to take me away. I thank Him million times for forgiving me my mistakes and showing me the right path.
One of the comments, devotee asked me to chant Vishnu Sahasranaamam too, which I have not been able to do so far. I will be starting that too, soon. I am yet to receive what I asked for in the previous Puja but I now know why I haven’t. I had promised to offer to two temples which I have not been able to do so far. I had almost forgotten it when Baba showed me the piece of paper where I had written down the offerings. Once I complete it, am sure everything will happen one by one. What I wish to tell all devotees is what others have also said here time and again. We have seen it as Sai’s words of advice/blessings in form of pictures on this site. We can ask for anything in prayer. We will receive it only if we have complete faith in Him. We need to wait patiently. Do not be so very desperate that you send out negative vibrations to the Universe. Prayer/wish once said wholeheartedly is enough. Leave it all at His lotus feet and be happy. Keep chanting Sai naam. And see how miracles happen. It’s like this; a good plant can never grow in a place that has weeds and if ground is not made ready. One has to clear all weeds (bad/negative thoughts) and then when you sow a seed (wish), a beautiful and desired plant grows. Also, we don’t keep sowing the seed at same place daily. All we have to do after once its sown, is to nourish it properly (prayers/naamam) and not overtly (desperation/negative thinking). Else the seed will rot. Finally, never let doubt (“what if..”) ruin the faith in our Baba. I at times lose hopes but deep inside I know and remind myself, Baba is there with me, holding my hand and walking me through the Karma. Why not show little patience. Last mile is always the longest but then that’s the sign that bad phase is coming to an end. I pray to Baba to forgive us for our mistakes and keep us grounded. I am sorry Baba, I delayed posting the experience.
1. One day my 3 year old son cried unusually complaining about ear pain. He never cries for pain and this worried us. I prayed to Baba and applied Udi to the back of his ears and within a minute, he stopped complaining and went about playing happily. But since he was crying for hours, I had already booked an appointment with his Paediatrician and so we made it to the appointment anyways to make sure nothing was wrong. The doctor checked his ears and said it is really red and there is a strong infection and so prescribed antibiotics for him. I don't like giving him antibiotics often or unnecessarily and so I held off on the prescription until he complained again. To all of our surprise, he never complained about the pain again and was as active as he ever was. If this was not a miracle of Udi, I don't know what else it was?
2. I was having constant pain, irritation, redness and swelling in one of my eye and so went to the doctor. They said there was an infection and needed antibiotic drops. The catch was I should stop breastfeeding my 3 month old for 7 days while on the antibiotic as it may pass through the blood. I didn't want to do that, but the eye was bothering me. So, I went to the world's best doctor of all - our beloved Sai and applied His Udi and drank Udi water for a few days. My infection had now gone and there was no more redness, swelling or anything. What could I have done without Him in my life!
3. My 7 month old baby had diarrhoea for no apparent reason and I was worried badly because I was working plus taking care of her and my son alone without my husband when he works out of town. I prayed to Baba and applied Udi to her tummy. Her diarrhoea did not stop for the next 7 days, but the miracle was she did not cry, complain or stop her feedings because of that. She was a happy baby all through that phase and all that was needed was changing her diapers frequently. Baba surely knows how to help when our past karmas are at work! These are only a few miracles, but there are a lot more. So much that my 3.5 year old son whenever has any ailment, goes straight to pooja room himself, prays to Baba aloud, applies Udi and in 5 minutes says "Amma, Baba cured me" with a big smile. Baba, we love You so much. Please be with my family and protect them always. Please bless all Your devotees. Please keep us at Your feet always in all births! Forgive us for any mistakes and keep us from doing any sins. Om Sai Ram. Anantha Koti Brahmanda Nayak Rajadhi Raja Yogi Raja Sri Sachidhanadha Satguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai
The experience that I am going to share is about my love. My Sai Baba made me meet a special guy in my life. I loved him a lot, more than everything. But that guy used to fight with me a lot. His behaviour was very strange with me. I used to cry a lot about my fortune. But one day he broke with me. I felt like I was totally broken up. I was crying a lot. He also blocked my number and also didn’t reply to my text. At that time I was hopeless. At night I was crying, missing my love and in another hand I was holding the statue of my Sai Babaji. I felt like, He was calling me in temple at 3 am in the temple of my house. I stood up and sat down in the temple. I was praying with my Babaji that please bring him back to my life. And suddenly he called me at 3. 15 and it was really shocking for me and he told me that he was really for what he had done. He told me that he was feeling like my Sai Babaji was scolding him to make me cry and also said to apologize. I was surprised because he did not used to believe in Sai Babaji and he was sharing his dream with me about Sai Babaji. From that time my love has changed a lot and because of my Sai Babaji’s blessings he also proposed me to get married with him. I wish my Sai Babaji to keep blessings on His devotees. I am having a great desire to visit Shirdi. Many times I also dreamt about travelling to Shirdi. I wish that my dream comes true as soon as possible. Please guys keep faith on Him. Whenever you feel that nothing is left then call Him. My Babaji is very kind hearted. He will help in any situation. Om Sai Ram. Happy Thursday to all.
