Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
My husband who is also a dear devotee of Baba was complaining of some eye problems for some time. We went to eye doctors but they could not figure out the reason of his poor vision in one of his eyes as it was perfectly healthy. My husband requested to refer his case to a specialist in a big hospital. We live in USA. The specialist did an MRI and found that there was a benign big cyst near the pituitary gland which was occluding the optic nerve. The day my husband told me about the report I was terribly scared and it came as big blow from nowhere as I had thought this to be a minor problem in the eye. However, apparently it did not seem cancerous from the report. But still there was an unknown fear that enveloped me day and night. We were immediately referred to an endocrinologist who ran all kinds of tests from kidney to liver and all types of blood tests. All the tests were normal. I was praying Baba desperately. Dear devotees, I must tell you, somehow before all these happened, I used to receive messages from Baba that life will be very difficult but Baba will help me to safely cross the ocean of miseries. I was not able to solve the riddle of this message then.
We were referred to a Neuro surgeon who was not very pleasing. After waiting for hours she came and hurriedly told us that she is not sure if it was cancerous or not and surgery was inevitable and we should do it right away. She told it will be about two hour’s surgery and my husband would be discharged after two days. I did not have a good feeling about her at all from the beginning but somehow the resident who came with her confirmed us that we should go ahead with her as she was a very famous surgeon. We had heard about a different surgeon’s name who was an expert in these types of surgery. But we did not get enough time to think about this as my husband was scheduled for a surgery in a week’s time. Thinking this might be urgent we agreed. On the day of surgery we met all kinds of residents but not the doctor who was supposed to do the surgery. My husband was taken to the OT. He was smiling at me holding my hand telling me not to worry at all. It was a procedure to be done by the ENT doctors followed by the neuro team. I was waiting in the patient waiting room chanting Baba’s name and not stopping even for a minute. After the surgery was over we were extremely relieved when we were told that the surgery went really well and there was no CSF leakage and that it was a benign cyst as opposed to what the lady surgeon had told us before that it might be cancerous. I thanked dear Baba profusely. I was very relieved but never knew that our ordeal had only started.
Things took a completely different turn. The surgery was on Monday. My husband was in ICU. On Tuesday late afternoon when the nurse tried to make him sit and urinate he felt unbearable headache followed by fluid running down his nose. The same headache continued the whole night on a ten on ten scale. On Wednesday early morning I went and started showing my strong displeasure at the lack of concern of the lady neuro surgeon who did the surgery and who never even came to see my husband even once after the surgery. Finally she came and ordered a CT scan and told that a lot of air had gone to his brain and he should be given 100% oxygen so that the atmospheric air in the brain which is causing the headache will be absorbed. His brain is being pushed because of this. I and my children were terribly pained to hear this, thinking what would happen to a very healthy young person who was admitted for just a two hour surgery? My husband was lying flat on bed with strong pain killers hardly aware of what was going on. On Thursday, another neuro surgeon came who was an expert in this type of surgery and confirmed for the first time that there was a CSF leakage and it can be fixed only with another surgery. With two different doctors giving two different opinions we really did not know what to do and where to go. We were extremely worried. My husband was completely under sedation.
Every morning there was a CT scan done to see the amount of air in the brain and blood drawn for all the tests. However on Friday he was made to sit at a 30 degree angle after his surgery on Monday and he talked normally with no symptoms of headache apparently. But in the evening when he was moved to a regular room from the ICU, his condition started getting worse and the same terrible headache came back. At night when he was taken to the bathroom with the help of the nurse he felt terrible pain in his head and then no pain killer could work for him. We deeply regretted the doctor’s decision to move him to a regular room from the ICU when he was not even able to walk on his own. From Saturday early morning with severe headache which was unbearable he started showing signs of confusion. I was scared beyond words looking at the condition of my husband. So were my two children who were there with me in the hospital. I was praying Baba every minute holding the Satcharitra in my hand. It was the book I was holding day and night chanting Baba's name. Seeing my beloved husband in that vegetable like state was not easy.
In the evening seeing his CT scan reports doctor decided to do another surgery on Sunday morning. I signed the papers for the second surgery. I was not even sure whether we were doing the right thing to go for another surgery in less than a week’s time. The whole of Saturday night I was walking the corridor of the hospital holding the Satcharitra in my hand. It was the most difficult night in my life. At 4 am in the morning while opening the Satcharitra I saw two flower petals, not sure where they came from, which convinced my troubled and worried mind that Baba was there with me. I was a little relaxed. Since it was a Sunday we were not sure which doctors would be doing the second surgery. Obviously not the first lady surgeon. While going to the OT for the second time however little conscious my husband was, he was chanting: Sai Nathay Namah.. I could not control my tears. Just minutes before the surgery we came to know that the neurosurgeon who had come on Thursday to see my husband, the doctor who had correctly diagnosed my husband’s case and who was an expert in these types of surgery was the one who was going to perform the second surgery which was truly Baba’s leela. We came to know about this in the OT only. I signed the papers again as my husband was not in a state to sign. It seemed like Baba sent him on both Thursday and Sunday again when most of the doctors were not available on weekends. The good neuro surgeon in the form of Baba came himself to tell us that the surgery went really well and he fixed the leakage. Baba gave my husband a second life. My husband was moved to the ICU for the second time. They put a clamp on his head to draw the CSF so as not to put pressure on the newly fixed wound. He lied on the bed another 5 days. The recovery period was long which again I got as a message from Baba. Needless to say I was praying Baba each moment. Every day with CT scan, they were monitoring him closely. There was a danger to his lungs for Pneumonia for lying in the bed for so many days. Then there was the fear of infection in the CSF for the catheter in his head. Our fear proved right when they tested the CSF and found out that there was an infection. We had no end to our woes but somehow I had very, very strong faith in Baba that He was there with me.
When the residents came and told they did not want to take out the brain drain till they got a positive result, we got extremely worried. But in the next hour the chief neurosurgeon came and told that since my husband looked clinically fine with no fever and headache, the clamp should be taken out as soon as possible as it might lead to more complications. We were very, very happy. It was as if Baba ordered it. My husband, who is otherwise a very strong person, was very weak by then. He started walking with the help of the nurse with a walker. He was improving day by day. I visited Baba’s temple with my son to thank Him. The next morning my husband was supposed to move to a regular room from the ICU. I was happy and finally we were leaving the ICU. In the morning when the nurse made him sit on the wheel chair to move him out of the ICU to the regular room he suddenly passed out and had a seizure like incident. My world crashed. I started crying uncontrollably. Nurses, doctors, residents all came running. But then he became conscious within few seconds and started talking normally again. Apparently it was not a seizure and an isolated incident. But it was very, very scary. We were moved to the regular room the next day. He was treated for possible infection for three weeks with an IV antibiotics. After a three weeks nightmarish stay at the ICU he was discharged from the hospital. We came home and he started recovering very quickly. He has recovered completely and has become perfectly normal by dear Baba’s grace. As promised to Baba I am penning down my experience.
Baba is truly there for those who completely trust Him. Before my husband's surgery I got the Satcharitra book as a Prasad like a miracle in the temple when I was looking for it desperately. He did keep His promise. I did get the message from Him that my husband will recover from disease and that He will be there with me. During this long ordeal Baba was there always with me. Dear devotees, one thing I realized during this whole ordeal was that we need to surrender completely to Him and have to have utmost devotion and faith, meaning Shraddha and Saburi. Om Sainathaya Naamah! Om Sai Ram Om Sai Ram. Koti koti prannam to my Sainath.
I am the same Sai bhakth who turned to the guiding light of Baba since 12th October this year and in my previous post I shared with you all the mercy and presence of Baba everywhere. I also told you all how I am going through the darkest phase in my life and I don't want my marriage to break. I beg and plead Baba to save my marriage everyday and on 14th night I begged Baba to somehow ask my husband or in-laws to get in touch with me which was impossible until I surrendered myself to my dearest Babaji. When I went to sleep after typing my experience with Baba on this blog, I woke up with a smile on my face. On 15th morning that is yesterday I told my mom that I saw myself, my mother-in-law and my father-in-law along with both my parents smiling and enjoying a normal family conversation. My mom couldn't believe it and we went about our day. I spent the rest of my day reading this amazing blog and by 2:15 pm I was reciting Babaji’s mantra" Kashton ki kaali chaaya dukh daayi hai.." (Sai Kasht Nivaran Mantra)and dozed off after that. I was fast asleep when I was suddenly awakened by a phone call on my mom’s mobile phone. It was my husband! Oh my God! Babaji You are a miracle! My mom spoke to my husband who in turn spoke to me for some work and to my surprise he sounded very sweet and normal. Even though we just spoke about work related stuff he was sweet and asked if everything was ok at my home. I kept on crying after the phone disconnected because it's my Sai and only my Sai who heard my prayers and showed that even though our marriage is in trouble my Sai ma can bring new life into it.
I just cried and cried because Sai heard me! When I thought the world came crashing down and no one heard me Sai showed me. I have to surrenderd to Him and He will never leave me! Since yesterday I am a little positive about my marriage and I beg you all to pray for me, I love my husband very much and no matter what, I want to make it last. Sainath mere Sainath You are my everything and I see You everywhere, You and only You can unite my husband and me for 7 births and I beg You to fill my Jholi with my husband and my in-law’s love. It's my wedding Anniversary in 2 days and karwa chauth and also my sister’s wedding next week. I beg you all to pray for a miracle for me as I want my husband to accompany me there. Saima please bless me, this is what I always wanted and I love You and I'm sorry for any mistake that I might have made. Jai Jai Sai.
I work in defence and I got married in 2015. Problems started from then. Only small issues between me and my wife. Suddenly my wife went to her home. Issues started rising and finally both parties agreed for a divorce. After horrible experience, I decided to adjust to the fact to separate. On the day of filing a divorce in court a small quarrel began between both parties and we went off without signing the divorcee. Next day I got a call from police station, that my wife filed a case against me. So I and my family members went to police station. Shocking! Police blackmailed and started to take back her as my wife. Somewhere in heart I felt that I didn’t do anything wrong. So I didn’t accept her as wife. Suddenly dowry harassment case, domestic violence case all started and arrest warrant too. All new, mind was blocked. My family members collapsed for doing nothing wrong. My parents treated her like daughter but she gave this gift. In that depression, once I came across one website, yoursSaiBaba answers.com, and asked Him what wrong I did, to face all this scrap. His reply was amazing, defining my exact problem, and then I was shocked. Within 3 months everything is gone. All cases are quashed. I am divorced now. God kicked that cruel lady from my life. On process of achieving my goal to be an IAS officer. Praying God to accomplish that too.... Baba we love You.
During my kids fall break during October 2016 we were planning to visit a hill station. I wanted my younger sister to join us. She was not sure being it was far from their city but after few talks she agreed to join. I was all the time praying Sai Baba to come with us for vacation so our vacation would be free from any hurdles. I was bit worried for my sister as for them it was really long distance. In my heart all the time my prayers were there to Sai to be with us. We reached the destination. It was great to meet my sister’s family, we were having good time. Next day we were all driving to the hills and my husband kept on feeling our car was running heavy. We stopped in between to click few pictures and all felt there was burning smell from our car. I got really worried as it's not India. We were very far from our city. It's not easy here to get mechanics etc. I really prayed Sai Baba please be with us. I said Baba please make our trip hurdle free, I will share Your Leela (miracle) with all of you. After that keeping Sai in my heart we kept on driving, Sai Baba blessed our trip and we enjoyed it without any hurdles. My husband felt afterwards car was running smooth. We drove back for 8 hours without any problem. I could feel Sai Baba’s blessings and presence! Thank You Sai. We all love You. Om Sai Ram.
Om Sai Ram. I had a dream of Sai Baba on Guru Pournima. It was around 4:00 am. I was sleeping that time. I could smell a very pleasant fragrance of agarbatti and dhoop. I thought I am smelling it in my dreams. I could smell for around 30 minutes and in the mean time I woke up. I realised that the smell was still coming. It was not in dreams. I was surprised. So early in the morning no one will light the dhoop and agarbatti in my building. Thinking about the smell, I went to sleep again. Then I had a dream where a very old man like a fakir came in my dreams. He asked me what am I going to prepare in the morning for eating? I said Sheera. He asked me which sheera and I replied Rava ka. He again asked me why not of atta(flour) and I replied there was not sufficient atta in the house. That Fakir then went to the kitchen, takes the jar of atta and says that this much amount of atta is sufficient for making the sheera. I replied to Him "ok". When I woke up in the morning, I remembered the dream. I rushed to the kitchen and saw the jar. The amount of atta that fakir showed me in my dreams; the same amount of atta was available in the jar. I prepared the sheera and offered it to Baba. I felt as if Baba wanted to eat the sheera made by me on such a great day i.e Guru Pournima day. I feel so much blessed. I love Sai Baba and always experience His blessings and miracles. Love You Babaji.
