Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
She started searching for jobs in the new place. I could see her learning technologies late nights and weekends. As I mentioned it was a small town – there were only a handful of jobs. I helped her to format her resume and to apply for jobs. Time elapsed by days, weeks and months– she couldn’t find any jobs. She could secure few interviews – but failed in all of them. Meanwhile all her friends who finished Masters were able to find good jobs. Many a times I could see her weeping silently. Sometimes it ended up in self-inflicting curses. Sometimes it would end up in big arguments between us. Atmosphere at home and my wife’s mental situation too were deteriorating. I tried my best to keep her motivated – but I could see the situation going out of control.
During this time I had a strange medical situation – one fine morning I couldn’t lift my legs and hands. I was rushed to hospital and was put under observation for 2 days. Doctors could diagnose nothing. My parents back in India too were horrified with this – new place, no friends, single bread winner of the family, a wife and a kid – I was not sure what to do. It’s during this time my father started reading Sai Satcharitra for my health. I returned home, my wife was helping me with everything I needed – starting from bathing to dressing me. But every day I could feel that I was getting better. Within few weeks I became normal.
I was already convinced about Baba’s power. I started reading Sai Satcharitra for my wife’s job – starting on April 4th-2016. My wife was not really convinced with this idea in the initial days. But something really strange (for her) started happening. She started getting Baba’s photos on Facebook. She showed these to me – she also found the reason why it happened - that many of her friends “liked” Baba’s Facebook pages. I told her that it’s a good sign and Baba is telling us that He has blessed us. She was not fully convinced. I continued my reading. At the end of every chapter I tearfully prayed: “Baba please bless my beloved wife with a job she likes within a month”. I too had lot of pleasant experiences during this. All my questions or dis-beliefs during a chapter would be answered by Baba in next chapters. I would think about a situation and how to respond to it and there was Baba answering it to me in the next chapter! Once I thought found it to concentrate well while reading. I had to read 5 more pages to finish the chapter. I was praying Baba to finish the reading faster. To my surprise, once I was done with that page and turned the next page, all the subsequent pages in that chapter were left blank! I told this to my wife and then too she was not fully convinced. On the 7th day, I wanted Baba to manifest in front of me as a photograph. I waited for the moment – nothing happened. I was about to go to bed. My two year old son was playing with my wife’s hand bag there. He suddenly took my wife’s purse and took a photograph of Baba from it. He started yelling at me: “Dad Sai Baba!” I was boundless with joy – I realized Baba has answered me.
Weeks passed by. Now it has been 2 weeks since I finished reading. Meanwhile my wife failed in couple of more interviews. Lot of recruiters were compelling her to fake her resume to increase the number of years of experience and she was reluctant to do so. Next week I secured an interview for her in my company. Even though it was not exactly what she was looking for, she could easily perform the duties mentioned in the job description. Meanwhile she also got an interview call from a mortgage company. By now, my wife started preparing for the interviews day and night. She attended my company’s interview on a Monday and the other company’s interview on a Thursday. Thursday!!! My Sai’s Thursday! My company’s interview and the mortgage company’s interview went well. Few days later my company responded saying that they were going with another candidate. Hearing the results, my wife was extremely disappointed. She asked me “Why Sai Baba was not answering our prayers?” I responded “wait till May 5th (it’s the last Thursday before May 9th – as I finished my reading of Sai Satcharitra on April 9th). She said “If I get a job, I too will read Sai Satcharitra”. Out of despair, I googled the following sentence: “Will my wife get a job Sai Baba?” I clicked on the first link in the results: How Baba Got Me Job Of His Choice - Sai Devotee Roopdarshini. It talks about a devotee’s experience on Baba’s intervention in securing a job for her. That was a big consolation for me. I found another website on Baba which advised “Light ghee lamp to Baba daily, feed others selflessly, take care of your parents and read Sai Satcharitra daily”. I started offering ghee lamp to Baba every day. Meanwhile we got associated with a prayer group and my wife started cooking prasadams (food as an offering to God) for the group. Within few days Mortgage Company called her and told that they needed one more interview with her. This time too it was a Thursday! I was really anxious for the results - We were in the 4th week and there were not many days for the one month.
My wife got one more interview call from a reputed company which was of few hours’ drive from our home. It was on May 4th 2016 – Wednesday. I had to take half day off to take her for the interview. We were about to reach the destination – suddenly a miracle happened - a car with its number plate written as “Sri Sai 1” appeared right in front of our car on the highway. It stayed there for around 15 minutes. Think of the probability of seeing the holy name of Baba right in front of you in a crowded highway in USA? I and my wife were overjoyed. The interview got over and while we were driving back, my wife called the recruiter of the mortgage company. He said “You might have received an update in an email already. Please check”. When she checked the email, she couldn’t believe her eyes– an offer letter from the mortgage company was waiting for her! Only now we realized the meaning of Baba’s earlier message earlier that day. He was telling that He has blessed us with a job for my wife! I checked the date -May 4th– it was exactly the 30th day from April 4th – the day I started reading Sai Satcharitra.
I was in tears – all verses from Sai Satcharitra were filling my ears. As the book says “Baba’s ways are strange – He first fulfils devotee’s material desires – in the process He solidifies Bhakti (devotion) within the devotee and finally helps Him to get detached from this material world”. Was He talking about me? I was convinced – I am baba’s devotee – he will be there forever for me. I was crying. For years I was searching for a Sadhguru (spiritual master). I just found mine. His lotus feet are my way for liberation. No one else can save me from this material world. We were still driving - I wanted to play Madhyanha Aarti (noon prayer) on YouTube. I was not able to play it on my phone because of some network issues. My wife played it on her phone and gave it to me. I tried not to cry – tears were still rolling out of my eyes. I really cried like a baby when I heard the verse “He will convert even an atheist to a devotee”. I begged for Baba’s pardon for my shaky faith. I remembered Dasghanu Maharaj’s words “I wipe Your feet with my tears”. I heard Baba telling from my mind “I am your consciousness - sitting in this masjid, I would never lie”. Meanwhile the phone ringed – I handed over the phone back to my wife. By some reason the phone stopped ringing and we continued listening the Aarti. May be Baba wanted my wife to see the beautiful aarti of Baba. I could see her faithfully viewing the video.
Meanwhile I was thinking of stopping for lunch – I thought I wanted to have food from an outlet called Wendy’s. If you ever visit USA, you know that Wendy’s is really rare to any US highway, unlike other fast-food outlets. While the aarti was at its last verse, an exit from the highway appeared and I turned my car to that exit. I found a Wendy’s outlet – by that time, we stopped seeing such events as coincidence - because we were convinced about Baba’s ways. The aarti got over right when I parked the car. We had a hearty meal and reached back home. Baba’s intervention in our life didn’t end there. The prayer group informed us that they were moving the Friday prayer program to Thursday for that week. My wife was extremely happy and she immediately signed up to cook some food as offering – especially on a Thursday! Baba’s ways are different. Only good things come out of it. I want to believe that it was Baba who made the prayer event moved to Thursday for us! After all He is the consciousness inside us. He knows our thoughts. I have already told Baba that we will visit Shirdi during our next India’s visit. As Baba says “However distant my people may be, I draw them to me just as we pull a bird to us with a string tied to its foot.” Shri Sachidananda Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai.
I have experienced so many miracles in life. At the age of 15, I was in Kenya studying in agakhan Kenya secondary school. Education was too tough as I was studying Oxford syllabus. In my grade 12, during final exams, accounts paper was too tough and hence could not write anything. I gave the blank paper. Literally did not write anything. I was sure, I would be wasting one year as I would fail in exam. I too had made up my mind. However I prayed Baba for the first time, day and night to pass me in exams. I was surprised to see that I had cleared my exams. Since then I started believing in God.
My second experience is in B.Com first year. I came to India and joined college in January and exams were in March. It was easy to clear exams as my primary education was in abroad. However Hindi was too tough so I took one month to learn and prepare for Hindi paper. I could learn only 7 questions in random. I was surprised to see the Hindi paper in exam. Only those 7 questions came in exam. I scored 75 marks. My belief became even stronger on Baba.
My 3rd experience. I was preparing for MBA entrance. I got 8000th rank. Thought I would get admission in normal college. But I got admission in Osmania university campus itself. All the top students below 1000 rank would get admission in campus. But I managed to get it and that was a free seat.
My 4th experience during marriage. Parents thought me to get married to my childhood friend, who happened to be our family friends. Sai Baba came into my dreams and told me that I would not be marrying him and I would get married to another person and He showed me the face of that person. The next day I went to 100 year old Nagadevta temple. I heard a voice from Nagadevta that I am not marrying this person and he has health problem. When we enquired about it, it was true that he had major health issue. Alliance got cancelled and dad was searching for matches. I got married to the same person whom Baba had showed me in dreams and he is born on Guru Pournima and he is one of the nicest person I have ever met in my life. After marriage I was upset that He had chosen for me a guy who was staying in India and I wanted an USA match. I went to the temple after couple of months and poojari called me and gave me a paragraph to read from a book. I was surprised after reading. It said I am your mother. You might be wrong in your decisions. I am your mother and I know what is right for you and I have chosen the best for you beti (daughter). You will soon realize it. This was the paragraph there in the book. I realized that He was there for me always.
My 5th miracle. I had severe migraine for months. I was holding Baba’s photo and slept on the bed. Baba’s hand came out from the picture and he threw some force from my brain. I could not believe that I could see with my open eyes. Since then there has been no migraine till date.
Another experience. I have first child as a daughter. And I desperately wanted a son as a second child. I have showed so many astrologers. Everybody said that it is destined that you will have second one as daughter only. Some of them challenged too. So I decided to pray Baba. I read 108 times Sai Baba book jeevitha during pregnancy. I stopped eating Non veg till I completed 108 times. 1 week before delivery Baba started coming into my dreams. Once He took me to brush with me and showed me that He is the person who is going to be born for you and would be famous. And the next day was my husband’s birthday. Somebody congratulated my husband in advance for having son. 2 days before my son's birth, Baba operated my stomach and showed me that He is your son, so cute. It happened to be the same hospital and same operation theatre which I saw in dreams.
Another experience. We have applied for Australian pr. My husband was supposed to go there and search job in Australia. But his Indian office asked him to open an office in Australia. I have so many experiences to share. Today I posted some of the experiences to have a belief that Baba exists and if your eyes sees Him in real, He is there for you. When I see a Baba’s picture, I can see Him in real. I can see His hands moving. My eyes and my soul feels His existence my life.
I thought she lied. But it was true. So she didn’t talk to me after telling this. I was so hurt and cried daily. From childhood onwards I don’t like to love all these type of things but I don’t know I loved her like amma(mummy). I called her amma and ma. After 6 months I went to Shirdi after darshan of Baba in 2012, I got confidence to get her. I don’t know how. But after a long time, I mean in B.Tech 4th year in 2015. Suddenly she called to me and said she loved me. I knew it was miracle of Baba. Because I was going every Thursday to Baba’s temple and doing evening arathi. I love arathi very much. Every time I was listening arathi, till now. I was very happy to get her back. But it was a miracle because I was not talking to her in this gap. How she understand my love. And how she accepted? It was Baba’s miracle. Of course I faced many pains and problems in this gap. And till two months back only we were happy together with the grace of Baba. Two months back we got fear about our marriage because of her parents.
Now we both are also software employees in different companies. Now we had a problem that we had a fear about them not accepting our love. We can’t imagine our life with others. I wanted them to accept my marriage. My parents supported me. But her parents didn’t know anything about our love. We had a fear about whether they would accept or not. Because they didn’t believe in love marriages. And my caste is Yadav and her caste is Kuruba. Please Baba time when I would approach her parents, please support me Sai. I have done parayan and again and again daily I am reading parayan Sai. From this Thursday I will start nav vrat. I am ready to face any pain and any problems. But I am not ready to lose her. I can’t imagine without her. Please Baba please help me. It’s Your miracle that she accepted my love and she too is loving me. She is also a devotee of You Sai. If I have done any sins please don’t forgive me I will face any problem and any pain but not related to my love, please Baba. Help me. I know You are with me Sai when I am travelling and where ever I am and whatever it may be. When I remember You and saying Sai Sai at any time on roads You answer where ever it is. Your photo appears on near bike or any vehicles or walls in the streets. I know that means "don’t worry I am with you". But I have tension and lot of fear about this Baba. After our marriage we will come to Shirdi every year. Please don’t cheat me Baba. I have a lot of faith on You. Baba love You. Please accept me as Your devotee. Sai Sharanam. Sri Satchithananda Samartha Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai.
He is living a miserable life since last 6-7 years. He has no hope for his life, even my family and me also suffering a lot due to his condition. We are crying day and night for his life. Please Sairam save him. Please give him a normal and peaceful life. Sairam helped us many times to save him from critical situation, and I know He will only save him. Just before 4 days i.e. on 30th Sept, 2016 my brother was stuck into a very bad situation me and my family were literally crying. I had my divya pooja udyapan on that day. I was fighting with Sairam that He had cheated on me, because He was assuring me that everything will be fine whenever I asked on questions and answers site. My sister is also a Sai devotee. She was continuously saying please do a miracle and save my brother. And guess what Baba helped us. He kept His promise and saved my brother on that day. Even He is not out of that situation fully. Still we all are worried for his life, please Sairam save him, and many lives are associated with his life. Please Baba I know You are helping him every moment. Please take him under Your wings, please call him Shirdi. You are the only saviour Baba. Jai Sairam. I know You will keep my faith. Ananthkoti Brahamndnayak Rajadhiraj Yogiraj Shree Sachidanand Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai. Jai Sairam. Jai Sairam.
