Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
Experience One: I am a small devotee of Sai Baba. I do experience small and big miracles by Him in my daily life. Here I am going to share one of my present and biggest miracles of my life. If Baba and other God's ( Lord Balaji and Goddess Durgamma) didn't help me then I would not see all with my clear vision. This year after my India vacation, my husband asked me to go over all the health check-ups due to year end. First I went to eye doctor in some time December. They tested me and said everything looks good so far, bit allergies due to eye pencil but rest is good to go. I was about to leave the doctor's office, she tested me back of my head then she said something abnormal with the nerves in the eyes. So she asked me to schedule one more appointment for that test. I casually went on other day, the regular doctor was on vacation, and other doctor arrived in her place and tested me. He informed I am Glaucoma suspect, no need to worry. He also said right now you don't have it but in future it might occur, so better come back after a year. I felt happy that moment because of no major issues.
After one and half month, doctor called me and asked to come over the test again. I was bit upset and asked her on the call itself, why are you calling me now, you mentioned me to come back after a year in my previous visit. She said nothing to worry but make sure to again go through tests procedures for the best results. I was thinking in my mind if they would schedule my appointment on Thursday, it would be good since it was Baba's day. Right after few minutes my husband called and said that it is fixed on Thursday. I felt so happy at that moment. On Thursday, today I went to doctor's office and did my test but the results were not good due to stress I did a mistake. They asked me to come over for test tomorrow but I insisted them, will take test today itself, since it was Baba's day so I repeated test one more time. They said I had given better results this time. I felt happy and expected to leave office early. The doctor called me and tested my eyes on screen and said it looks like one eye is larger than the other eye so will make sure to further test with other referral doctor. I felt bit sad that moment. I decided to go to Baba’s temple from there, while driving I thought in my mind, might be Baba’s plans are different and He is taking and indicating me in advance to go through all the procedures. If I didn't get examined all these, down the line 20 years vision loss would occur, explained by doctor. I am very much thankful to Baba to show me early good path to me in advance without major issues. I will definitely post my further test results. I pray by Baba's grace the result should come negative. That test would decide this issue whether this occurred due to hereditary, by birth or health issue.
Experience two : I went to regular doctor to make sure overall health is ok. Doctor said, he would test my diabetic test also since it is in my family history. I prayed Baba, if report was normal (No diabetics) I will offer you sugar. I also prayed lord Balaji, and took abhishekam flowers with me to the hospital. I would do abishekam if reports were normal. I did all my tests and came out of the hospital and forgot about that. Here is the Miracle!! Doctor called me over the weekend and said my reports were normal and existing health issues were also resolved without medication. I really felt double happy about his words. Goddess Durgama also helps me. I still have to perform abishekam for lord Balaji. I offered sugar to Baba. Baba, Please help everyone. I know you are always there to help Your devotees. We all need faith and patience for some time to be quiet. As a human being we have emotions. I pray Baba to help my family and other devotees’ families. Health is important for everyone. Please Baba give painless life to all. Om Sai Ram. Thank You Baba.
At a tender age of 16 plus years, a girl came to my school to opt for Maths. From the first time my gaze locked with hers-I felt I know this girl, how-I didn't know? I soon proposed her and surprisingly she also consented and a bigger surprise was-she also felt an unprecedented pull towards me in spite of having everything different from me. What was to follow was a journey of dangerous events-as she came from a very conservative community as well as a family-very different from mine. I was so motivated to marry her that one day I started studying seriously to get into engineering, started saving every single penny from my pocket money (visualizing that I may not get anybody's approval so I should have my own money for marriage). She knew, her parents won't allow her to study engineering out of town, in spite of being very sharp mentally, took a course in a college in town.
I went to Delhi to pursue my mechanical engineering. I had started considering her as my wife, knowing this would give her strength when facing her parents on disclosure of our relationship. Struggles began, as she was constantly under pressure of getting married. Her parents liked me as a person but were not aware of our relationship. She somehow managed to complete her graduation, while I had only reached half-way in my course. A day came when she was compelled to disclose our relationship, as she was being forced to be shown to a wealthy and handsome guy for marriage. What followed was-a hair-raising tale in form of tremendous pressure to forget me and get immediately married to a person of their community. All sorts of pressure were applied-emotional, physical lock-up in a room.
Her father used to travel a lot. One day, he brought a sticker of Baba and pasted it on her almirah. That sticker had 11 promises of Baba on it and His picture with those loving, expressing I-know-your-pain eyes. She believed those eyes and kept praying Him. I sent my father to propose my marriage but they insulted him and told him let your son die, if he wants to but this will not happen. It was a beginning of my final year and the day came-when we although unwillingly, had to elope to get married. It was miraculous that inspite of her maternal uncles, following us with a gun in one hand, police on other-who had recorded a FIR charging me with kidnapping, we were never caught. Many people joined our struggle without even our informing them. It was a roller-coaster ride. It ended with our marriage in Arya Samaj, followed by her statement in court in my favour. It all happened in 1995.
After four years of distance from their daughter, her parents accepted us one day. Baba was still at work, ensuring she gets her parents back. Today, my father-in-law does not take a decision without involving me. She had a firm faith in Baba but we could manage to visit Shirdi in 2011 only taking her parents along. One day- during navratras, a jagran was organized in my neighbourhood. The singer was singing Mata's bhajans. In middle of that, suddenly he started praising Baba and with a lot of emphasis he uttered "premiyon ki naiyya Baba hi paar lagate hain"(It is Baba Who is behind success of lovers in getting each other in their lives). My gaze locked with my wife's- with tears in eyes of both, getting the validation that it was Baba only who was at work. Best thing about Him is, He validates His presence, and takes our faith in Him to even deeper levels. Today, I thank my wife to have helped me in getting my Guru in my life-my Baba.
We went to India recently. Within a week after we returned from our trip my daughter complained of leg pain. We initially thought it must be some muscle pull and thought it would go away in few days. We ignored it completely. The pain gradually increased and she started limping in month. Then we took her to paediatrician, she said it was a muscle pull and prescribed ibuprofen. Her condition didn't improve and the doctor prescribed X-ray in her next visit. The results were normal but no improvement. She was referred to orthopaedic. He did some X-rays and ordered some blood tests Also she was given bed rest for couple of days. I was worried as days passed and her condition was not improving and constantly praying to our beloved Sai and Balaji. During the follow up visit most of the results came normal. He said we don't have to visit him anymore. But we didn't know what the cause of the pain. We went back to the paediatrician; she gave mortin again for few more days and recommended bed rest. It was diagnosed as Transient Synovitis- a viral infection causing inflammation of hip which occurs between 3 to 10 years of age. By Baba's grace she improved and recovered fully in 10 days, She is back to her normal activities now.
Thank You Baba for being with us in our tough times and You know how much pain I was in during those days. It was roller coaster ride for about 2 months. On Sai Sri Sai Jaya Jaya Sai. Jai Hanumam Jai Sriram Om Sai Ram.
I am devotee of Baba since 5 years. Baba has always helped me in my tough time. I was working in IT company, I got fired from company and was looking for a job. I got job offer but that offer I got from Bangalore and I was looking for Pune location. I have given lot of interviews and reached to the last round, but somehow not getting selected in any company. I am requesting to Baba please help me to get job in Pune as soon as possible. My husband is also worrying about my job, he is also praying to God for my job. Baba You know my all wishes, please Baba give me a good job so that I can go head in life. Once I got offer letter, Me and my husband both will come to Shirdi, I know Baba You are checking my patience, but since last 4 months I am sitting at home and getting frustration, please Baba listen our prayer, give a good job. My husband is also praying to listen to him. Please please, Baba help me. Om Sai Ram Om Sai Ram Om Sai Ram.
