Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
Although I am well educated (double PhD holder one in India and other in Japan) and worked in Japan, USA and Middle East as a research scientist but I lead very usual life in believing all our Hindu Gods especially Hanuman, Muruga etc.. Even though my life had lots of hurdles with my family life which bothered me psychologically a lot especially from 1998-2005. In 2009 my life changed with mixed upsets and gains which is worth describing with all because how Sai shaped my life is baseline of my experiences which is summarized in main text as follows.
I couldn’t find words as I just started my journey with our Shirdi Sai Baba since 2009 and try to find the words how to narrate my experiences. Once I resigned my research scientist’s job in USA during March 2009 and came back to India (to look for job) and I was helpless what to do next? The day I landed in India was Thursday and my mother took me to one Sai Baba’s temple in Mettupalayam on the same day evening. First time I cried in front of Sai Baba to save me and my life and get me some decent job. Next day afternoon one of my friend named Sai Prasad came to me and inquired when I was going back to US (he thought I had come for vacation). I told him that I will settle in India and take care of my parents and try to find a job suitable for my double PhD. He called somebody and asked me are you interested in working in Bangalore. I was surprised because when I resigned my job in US I thought that getting another job in India may take at least 6 months to 1 year. Somehow with Sai Baba's grace I got the job and work for one year and found out India is not suitable country for my professional life. As a NRI return to home country I was treated very badly and then I thought of do some business. NOTE: I had not continued my devotion or at least my continued prayer to Sai after getting the job in India. The result was that I resigned my job and planned to do a business. Please read how Sai played in my life from now on wards.
My parents wanted me to work in university or research institute. I had tried all the possible ways to work for India and even sent my bio-data to president and several ministers but I couldn’t get any job in India. Then I had put all my money saved in Japan and USA in past 13 years and ended up in joining wrong kind of peoples/partners in the business. I worked with full dignity and honesty but my partners looked only my money. By that time I started following Sai very strong. And also without thinking invested money in trade and so on. The result was I lost all my money and needed to pay heavy sum of money to my friends who had invested in trade etc. One event I shouldn't forget that I had printed Shirdi Sai Baba’s calendar during 2011 January and distributed to 1000 peoples on new year day. I strictly follow Shirdi Baba and beg Him to save my life. I was sure He was with me to save but He tested me for more than 1.5 year from 2011 January. For survival I needed to sell all my home, jewellery, car etc., and almost kind of give up in my life. But was still praying Sai all the time. One time I decided to go to Shirdi and started my bike to Nagasai Temple located in Coimbatore. The rain started pouring and I stop my bike after 18 km and took bus because I knew Baba was testing me. I went to the temple with pouring rain and prayed Him and then I got His guidance from there. By His grace I got a chance to go to Shirdi within 3 months time. By that time 5000 Rs for my expenses per month was big deal for me (remember I used to spend 5000 Rs per day). But all my belief on Him started paying. By that I got a job in USA for 5 years and other offer from Middle East. He showed all His love on me and was able to get back all my lost resources within 3 years from 2013-2016. I realized that I must have done lots of sins (KARMA) in my life that paid as a hard life to me from 2010-2013. I see Him in dreams, I feel His presence with me all the time and He is being with me and guiding me in good way. Moreover, He shows His affection on each and everyone, those who do not even believe Him. When I re-call all those hard days and compare the present time, Shirdi Sai Baba Shaped my life and Blessed me. Om Sairam.
My Hubby was hospitalized suddenly for higher heart rate, low BP due to wrong medications in Bangalore. 3 months earlier, my hubby was experiencing higher heart rate and I was worried about his health as he is already diagnosed with mitral stenosis. I used to refer to ask Sai Baba website when I had any issues/problems. When asked Sai Baba, He asked me to donate 1500 INR and that I would be benefited 10 times. That evening I could not go to the temple as I have tasted chicken curry and thought that I would go the next day. The same evening we went to hospital and got medications for higher heart rate. The same night my husband’s health became bad and we needed to rush to the hospital. In hospital we came to know that because of the wrong medication BP had got lowered, worsening his health and became complicated. It took a day for me to remember Sai Baba’s message and immediately rushed to the temple next day morning.
I cried at the feet of Sai Baba and donated 1500 INR to the poojari for Sai Baba. Poojari gave me prasad in the form of milk and asked me to give my hubby. That day submitted cashless insurance which was not there in my mind till then. When I submitted the insurance form, the department person said that this may not be approved as per his experience. Estimated cost was 20k per day in ICU. I was confused and worried. Was planning how to handle expenses and asked him to submit the form for approval. Next day big blow as the doctor suggested that my hubby may need mitral valve replacement and his heart rate was not controllable which could cost upto 10 lakhs and I was totally down on as to what was happening. My family members were worried and started consulting other doctors. Was asking Baba what was happening and asked Him to guide me. The next day morning doctor called me from ICU and I rushed to hear from him. Miracle is that the doctor said that his heart rate was getting improved and mitral valve is like hockey stick. He said it was a miracle as He did not expect such improvement in short time. Insurance got approved for amount claimed by hospital and finally my hubby got discharged from hospital with good health and he is fine now with Baba's blessings. After a week I told my husband about Sai Baba’s message and donation. Had I gone to the temple the same day, hospitalization could have been avoided or knowing the next step Baba guided me and my family through His message.
This is my recent experience. I thank this team for helping devotees to increase faith in Sai. We do ask a lot(wishes) from God. If everything happens according to us, we believe in God's existence, otherwise we lose faith in Him. Its human nature after all. Dear devotees I would like to say that whatever happens in our lives is for good reason. Don’t worry if nothing is going right now because Baba takes care of our lives and he definitely knows what to give and when to give. So leave everything in Baba's hands. Darkness will be defeated by the light. Baba is the light of our lives. Coming to my experience, I gave an exam recently but I couldn't pass. That's because I didn't put faith in Baba even though I prepared well. I was always telling to myself that 'I' would pass. I realised after my result that these words 'I' and 'mine' are nothing in front of Baba. All you need to be humble and surrender everything to Baba and He will make everything happen at right time. If I had left everything on Baba completely and think that 'Baba would definitely pass me', then I would have passed. Now I became more close to the Lord Sai and have surrendered myself and my life to Him. Then after two months of surrendering, a miracle happened and Baba made me pass driving test at first attempt only. I am sure from now on Baba is going to take care of our lives. Also I found my lost gold earring in seconds after praying to Sai. My mother-in-law tortured me and my mother mentally and Baba reduced this also. Thank You Sai Baba for everything You have done for my family and all devotees. I believe You are always there for me and my family. Please leave everything, if it is good or bad, on Baba. Sai Ram.
This experience which am sharing here is just a small and one of the several miracles which I have experienced in my life till now. Once I had to travel abroad for official meetings but very surprisingly could not get Visa which usually was allotted very easily as official trip but this time my company applied for my visa twice and it was rejected. Now time for meetings was coming close as meetings were already planned and were very important for company's business. I prayed to Baba to help and surrendered to His wish as had complete faith that whatever He will decide will be good for me but in my heart I still wanted to go for company's business growth.
Now Visa was again applied for and this time my company's chief spoke to embassy, even had strong argument with the embassy managers and arranged the visa somehow. When all this process was going on it was coming again and again in my mind that Baba is doing all this in form of my company's chief, he is fighting, he is arguing for me, he is taking stand for me. I seriously felt this and actually this is the truth that Baba comes and help us in any form. This experience is very small, there are many miracles which we all Sai bhakts have experienced and cannot be described completely in words. It is very strong divine feeling. Thanks Baba for being in our lives , for connecting us with You, for blessing us with Your bhakti, we all are blessed and feel as if have achieved everything in life in fact have achieved moksha. May Sai Baba Bless Us All Always…Jai Sai Ram .
Om Sairam...Guru Deva Dutta! What do I say about my experience? I pray to Deva to give me energy, wisdom and knowledge to write His leelas. I have many great experiences with Babaji. But I'm sharing the one that I took oath to my Deva that I would share if it succeeds. I'm currently residing in US. I have a 6 year old son. In year 2014, I started feeling that I need to have a second kid. Even though we tried, nothing was working out. I started praying to Babaji to bless us with second kid. I read Sai Satcharithra couple of times. In Q & A website, Babaji would say "everything will be alright. Do not worry". After trying for 3-4 months, I was sad and asked on Q & A website about when we would be blessed? Then the reply was "your work will be done before the day of Christmas". Being not sure of what to do and when to expect, I just carried on with daily routine. It was then the Christmas time and I had already missed my menstrual cycle. I did a pregnancy test to check if there was any luck. To my surprise, it was positive and also just the day before Christmas, that Babaji had promised! Then I continued my pregnancy which had many hindrances that my Deva made me to pass easily. Finally, the date of delivery was scheduled (c-section). I had no one who came for my delivery to look after me or the baby. So, I prayed to Babaji to be with me, bless me help me all the time, as He is my mother, father, relative and Guru Who will get me out of any destined trouble. My Deva helped me in every way by taking care of me and baby and made us easily pass through one of tough phases of life. Now, my baby is 14 months and we are a happy family with only Babaji's grace. Babaji, please bless us and all Your devotees and always keep everyone happy.
When the ambulance came, the paramedics also tried waking my dad but he would keep snoring and not respond. They took my dad in the ambulance and told us to follow them in our car. All the way to the hospital I had scary thoughts going to my head but I prayed to Sai that my dad should be fine. Once we went to the hospital, they did not let me into my dad’s room for 30 mins. After 30mins we were allowed to go see him, I had a huge sense of relief when I saw my dad awake and talking when I entered the room. Doctors told us he had a seizure and he would be fine. Due to Sai Babaji only my dad was okay and is doing great now. Sorry Babaji for posting this experience so late. Please always be with me, my family and all Sai devotees and guide us in the right way. Thank You, Om Sai Ram.
