Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
We used to visit Shirdi once every year. My last visit to Shirdi was in 2013. I was just in front of the Baba, hands folded, and eyes on Him, in a deep conversation with Him. I was so happy. Just in a few seconds everything changed. Someone took advantage of this moment and touched the wrong part of my body. I looked everywhere, but couldn’t locate the person. I had a doubt on the security guard who was standing beside me just near the exit door beside Baba. But I couldn’t do anything. The only person I was blaming was Baba. How something worse, like this can happen at His darbar. Why didn’t He stop that man? Deep inside, I was just crying the entire Shirdi trip. But I did not tell anyone about this. I told Baba unless You won’t answer my question, I will not visit Shirdi. Since then He never called me to Shirdi. In 2014, I was moving to Canada for my education. Before leaving, I went to all temples that I have visited since childhood. But that year I wasn’t invited to Shirdi by Baba. In 2015, I met a beautiful person in Canada, my roommate. She reintroduced Baba to me. She gave me His pictures. I took them, but had no attachment towards Him. I told her that I am angry at Him and explained her that incident. She told me, “something much worse than this was supposed to happen to you, no one can change your karma but Baba helped you by reducing its effect” I got my answer in such simple words. I was just crying and felt so bad that I blamed Sai for my karma. Have faith on Baba. Whatever happens, it happens for good.
My colleague told me about Sai Satcharitra on July 13th, 2016(Wednesday). I was searching about Sai Satcharitra, and found the blog for devotee’s experience. Read many stories and heard about nav guruvar vrat. I didn’t know anything about this vrat, thought of starting it from next day with Baba’s help. The same day my boyfriend had his complete dinner after 7 days (due to tooth pain, he was on juices for seven days). I live in Vancouver, Canada. I was searching for Sai Baba’s temple since long time. Attended bhajan and realized it’s for Shri Satya Sai. I did not find a single Sai Baba picture there in temple, so was upset. Someone told me, you won’t find a Sai Baba temple here. Googled it, but failed to locate any. Through this blog I also heard about question and answer blog. I didn’t know what to ask, so went to Baba, looked at His smiling face and realized what I wanted. His answer was “time is tough. Donate. Apologize to Sai Baba then desired thing will be done” I told Baba, I will only donate to a temple where I will find You. And I started my search. Couldn’t believe my eyes, I found a Facebook page for Sai Baba’s temple. Basically, this temple was inside a house maintained by Sai family. Finally I found a place where my donation would be in good hands. I would be visiting that place this Guru Pournima (19th July 2016).
I read many stories – how Baba showed His presence and confirmed His devotees that He is listening to their prayers. I was in my office, googled Baba’s picture, selected one of His simple pictures and started talking to Him. I told Him if You’re listening to me then gift me Your picture. Next day it was Guru Pournima (July 19th ,2016), I went to Baba (the temple maintained by Sai family as I mentioned before) for the first time in Canada. The lady who was taking care of Sai gave me Baba’s picture with a frame. And the picture was the same picture of the Sai that I was talking to a day before (exactly the same black and white picture, with Sai wearing a white kaftan which is torn at His right shoulder). I felt so blessed, didn’t know how to thank that lady. She also gave Udi and some fruits. I was carrying a hand bag which was small enough to carry my lunch. But before leaving for the temple something in me told me to take the big bag and I came back to my room shifted everything to big bag. Then I realized Baba forced me to take bigger bag as He had a plan to gift me (His picture and fruits). Thank You for everything Baba.
I was coming home with my friend and passed by the roadside plants with flowers. I was just thinking to pluck a flower for my Baba but I was afraid to do so. Immediately my friend plucked it and offered me. (Baba read my mind). I was shocked and happy. It is second day (July 21st, 2016) of my vrat, I never asked, but Baba knows my need and He raised my salary. Thank You so much Baba. July 26th, 2016 – after holding my hands tightly and knowing the fact that I won’t leave Him ever, Baba called my dad to serve Him in heaven. My dad was too young to die; he had not lived his life for himself. I was told to come home, dad was serious. My entire trip, I was remembering Baba and was thinking of the story where He took care of His devotees. But when I reached on July 28th, 2016, it was too late. My sisters and I are his life. We wouldn’t have allowed Baba to take Him in our presence. Just when my dad was alone (with my mom and brother, my 1st sister in US and 2nd sister came for vacation in US), Baba took him. Small pain to my father made me cry. But that day I didn’t cry, I just cried for my mom. I couldn’t see her pain. I couldn’t feel anything. It was a big loss of my life but still I didn’t cry. I felt so stupid and selfish. And worst daughter to my dad. I was telling everyone, it’s good at least he is happy today and in real peace. After a month I came back to Canada, returned to my job, continuing my vrat. In between I got blessings from Baba (prasad from Shirdi on my birthday), Udi from my friend. And I was also able to borrow Sai Satcharitra from my friend’s roommate, and a new position at my current employer. Om Sairam.
We went to Shirdi and donated that money. After that also I didn’t realise the power of Baba. Then my husband came to US again in 2010. I stayed In India with my two kids without anybody’s help. I suffered a lot. Every day I cried a lot. In 2011 I came to US. Then I started going to Baba’s temple for kid’s classes. Then I got attached to Baba a lot. I started reading Sai Satcharitra. I joined as a volunteer in temple. Every weekend going to temple, reading Vishnu Sahasranamam in front of Baba. It makes me so happy. With the help of Baba’s grace my husband got a good job in another state. I checked in google whether there was Baba’s temple? But I noticed there was no temple. Then in my mind I asked Baba, how can I be there without Your temple. I went to India for vacation from my old place. One fine day my husband gave a mail to me, in the new place someone is going to open Baba’s temple, tears rolled down.
When I was on vacation in India I went to Shirdi, Tirumala and some other temples. When I was in Tirumala it was Thursday. I wanted to fast till afternoon without eating anything. In the evening I was standing outside. One Saint came over to me for dakshina; he looked like Baba with orange coloured dress. I gave dakshina and I thought Baba I didn’t miss You. After few months I came back to US. Then again started going to temple and joined as a volunteer. From one of my friends I got the information about this blog. I started reading every day. Then I came to know about 9 Thursday fast, Sai Divya pooja. I started those and I got my work permit with Baba’s grace. Then I prayed to Baba when I get the job I too want to submit my experience on this blog. After few months of struggle I got the job with the help of Baba. But I did a mistake, instead of submitting my experience here, I posted in comments section. But my heart was not happy for not submitting. One day when I was reading one experience I realised my mistake of not submitting here. Then I promised Baba that I wanted to submit my experience if I got any information from one company. I didn’t get the information, but I wanted to submit here. Please devotees keep faith in Baba. Your wishes will be fulfilled. But it will take some time, don't think Baba is not helping. Think Baba is working on that to make it easy. Thanks Hetalji for all her efforts to make every devotee happy. Om Sairam.
Now, coming to my experience. I was suffering from headache since yesterday morning. I somehow managed to cope up like that, all day yesterday and went to sleep with the headache. Many times when I wake up in the morning the headache goes away naturally. But this morning, it didn't. Immediately I took some Advil and went back to sleep for some more time with the hope that it will go away. But, it still didn't. I decided to get ready and go to work anyways. So, I went to the office. I was just continuing to feel miserable. At the same time, I mentally started asking Sai as to why was He doing this to me? I even went to Sai Baba's question answer site and asked the same thing there. His answer was "Unfathomable are blessings of Sai Baba, wish in your mind will be fulfilled, but is not true that you are always Suspicious?" While I felt nice to see one part of the message, being a human I get negative thoughts and end up thinking what if? Just then I told my colleague that I am having headache. He asked me to go outside with a cup of water and asked me to exercise breathing in and out with concentration.
While I walked out of the door, the only thing in my mind was, Sai, I am going to try what my friend suggested but I know very well without Your grace nothing is possible. So, I plead to You to cure my headache through this exercise so that I can go on with my daily duties at work. I did exactly as my friend suggested but as I did breathing I also silently said Sai…Sai in my heart praying to cure me. Within a matter of less than 5 minutes, headache completely disappeared. I can say that with Sai's grace, nothing is impossible and like it is said there is no ocean to cross to achieve this life's goal. Deva, always be kind like this to all the beings in this world and beyond. May my faith and thoughts be always at Your feet in this life and all future births. Devotees, please chant Sai with pure heart and devotion. Sai Baba will come running to protect you. Sri Sacchidananda Sadguru Sainath Maharaj ki Jai Om Sairam.
Today afternoon, as it is Saturday (is a holiday) I was sleeping at home post lunch. I usually don’t sleep at afternoon and during the sleep I got a dream in which I could look at maa Durga Goddess and she blessed me saying that I would get married very soon. As soon as this happened I opened my eyes and I could feel the bliss. Actually I am going through a very bad period in my personal life and in my house my parents are looking for matches. We just came across one match whose star was believed to be incompatible to mine as the girl’s star was mula nakshatra “Goddess nakshatra". I thought if she was the right match for me, then Sai Baba will show me some signal suggesting that she is the right one for my life. With this thought process I was just looking at matches and chanting Sai Baba’s name and leaving it to Him. Because I believe that He knows what is best for us. With thankfulness and devotion I lay at His feet with no anxiety and fears saying to myself that Sai Baba knows what I am going through in my life and He will give me best when it’s the right time. These leela of Him coming into my dreams as Goddess Durga was really sensational and I will cherish these memories for ever. Thank You very much Sai Baba for giving me this opportunity to share my experience and spread Your bliss. Jai Sai Ram!
Another incidence is - there was a big thunderstorm in our area and because of this our house's vinyl siding came down. It was way up near the roof. I was tensed that how we are going to fix it since it was way high and I didn't want my husband to risk going up there. I prayed Baba to help us. And He did. We emailed our builder about it and he promptly agreed to fix it without any charges. This was just a miracle.
