Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
I always felt that Baba was not just "Guru of Gurus" but "God of all the Gods", meaning Paramatma. Infact on some occasions, when I used to meditate on "OM", and desire to see some picture of God, I always see or imagine some or the other picture of Baba. It was always spontaneous and natural. Now, before I start detailing my experience, I first want to thank the administration for doing such a great service to all the devotees, by creating such a wonderful platform to share their experiences and emotions. You are all blessed souls and sure to get the ultimate moksha.
Coming to my experience, I heard about USA, living conditions out there, educational and job opportunities and life style way back in my 9th grade and got so deeply hooked and built up a strong desire to move to USA either after my Graduation or for job. Due to my bad luck and my carelessness, I failed in my 12th board exams and my desire got crushed. I failed in the supplementary exam as well. For 1 long year, I was in the house preparing to clear my 12th exam for the following year and also preparing for engineering entrance. I, somehow managed to clear my 12th exam, but couldn't get through my engineering entrance. I didn't want to lose another year for this and instead joined straight into B.Sc. That was the time when Baba came into my house and since then got so well connected to Him. I, however intermittently used to fight with Him for not fulfilling my immediate desire at that point, but then again used to apologize and get back to Him. It's like Baba holds my hand and never lets it go, just because I was mad at Him at that point of time. Jai Sairam.
Anyways, coming back to my experience, as time passed and post completing my Post graduation in computers, I somehow managed to get a job in IT firm. That was the time, when my hope and desire to go back to USA and build a house re-surfaced, but after my marriage was settled, my prospective wife was damn against going abroad, and that point of time my Dad was also not in support of me going abroad. It was like a lone battle in me between my desire and family support. My desire got crushed again. At this point of time, I more or less gave up on moving to USA. I started accepting my fate and left everything to Sai Paramatma. Days passed, and we built a house in India and slowly started settling down. I moved on too, assuming that Baba too wants me to settle down in India. However, this is Sai we are talking about Who never leaves His children’s dreams unfulfilled, if that dream is going to be good for them in all respects. I, one day casually bought up a point to my wife, "we bought a house on loan and will take lot of time to close the loan, so how about we go to USA for some time and then close the loan", and come back to India. Strangely, she agreed to it, which was the biggest surprise of my life. My dad too hesitantly agreed. It was the greatest moment of my life, it's like I moved a big mountain of obstacle, of course with Baba’s help and His blessings only.
We then moved to USA, land of opportunities and then after continuous persuasion, I got my wife agree to buy a house in USA as well, again Baba played another miracle. I had my first child born here in USA too. So it's like all the dreams slowly started getting fulfilled and by Baba's grace, we are having wonderful time. Jai Sainatha, please bless me, my entire family and all those devotees who reach out to You. As, I feel You are their only hope, Who can not only fulfil their desires, but also make them walk on the path for moksha. Jai Baba.
I would say am devotee of Sainath from past three years. Before that I used to visit Sai temples with friends, I even visited Shirdi in 2002 (college trip). I lost my father when I was in 8th std, mom is a house wife, and have a younger sister. Financial problems started and somehow I completed my MBA. I got married in 2013 and started facing lot of problems; one of my best friends is a Sai devotee. She asked me to pray to Sai. Then I started praying Sai Baba. Day by day problems started increasing. I lost all my patience. I used to cry every day but friend used to tell Baba will surely help you, have patience.
It was 2014 first anniversary of my marriage and my mom was suddenly diagnosed with aplastic anaemia (bone marrow problem) were her bone marrow stopped producing blood cells. Hearing that I was completely shattered. Doctors said survival chances were less and also said need to do blood transfusion till she is alive. We started doing blood transfusion for every 25 days. I was blank, felt like how God can do this to me as He had already taken my dad. Someone had told my husband that there is one Sai devotee(Vimala aunty, Bangalore ) lady was just a Goddess to us. We just need to call her, tell our problem and for a minute she goes silent and she said "Sai said your mother need to drink 4 glass of jaggery water and rice flakes(poha in hindi ) with jaggery. It was tough for mom to eat early in the morning in empty stomach, somehow I made her to eat. First three months were horrible but later gradually she started improving. I promised Baba that I will do Nav Vrath for 9 weeks if she improves and I did. Today almost two years passed she is doing fine and all her work. There are Ayurveda medications and till now she drinks jagery water. Baba makes you suffer for your karma s but later He does miracles. Baba, bless everyone who are suffering.
My dear Deva I don’t know from where to start, all I want to say is sorry to You. I thought to share my experience for the past two months but something was disturbing me not to share. But now Baba made me to write so nothing can disturb me. I beg Your pardon Deva for not obeying Your words, lack of trust and impatience. I know these three things are most important for Your devotee but the problems around me making not to be like that. None is respecting me including my mom for being jobless at home. I lost my self-respect. Feeling shy to participate in my friend’s/relative's marriage function. I lost my confidence to the level that I don’t have guts to heading out of my home. I can't even face my own brother and is scared whenever he is coming home for holidays. I am totally lost now. Only ego is with me. The pavements for getting job has been closed for me. You know my Deva how much I need the job right now.
My family is full of debts because of me, my mom lost all her jewellery for my education. I am feeling guilty to see my mom like this without any jewellery. Now the bank has started asking to repay the education loan, often the bank manager is coming home and asking us to repay. But now we are in the situation that we can’t repay. We are managing the family with the smaller amount that my brother gives. In this critical situation I can’t even give a single rupee to my family. I am failing in each and every exam I am appearing. My lover is doing farming after completing his B.E because of that my family is not accepting him. Please rescue me from these problems. You are my only saviour. Along with my small experiences I have narrated all the problems around me. Sorry Baba.
I would like to share that how Baba arranged marriage of my uncle who is 48 years old presently. He was not getting married since so long and my grandparents are not there. He used to live as a single and all alone. It was very tough for him to manage all alone these 15 years. But when Baba entered our life, we were waiting for a miracle to happen because of blind faith in Baba and this year I used to meet him whenever I went to his place. I used to feel like Baba end this and give him someone as he is too good. He cares for everyone.
Then gradually I went to one Baba’s mandir for some Seva and I thought in my mind that I will do Shringaar in this mandir but somehow months passed. I remembered it and in my mind I was like I will go with my uncle but it didn’t happened soon as he lives in Delhi and I am in Lucknow but Baba always know the right time. Months passed in arms of my Baba and I don’t know how my uncle was coming down to Lucknow for some work (which was next to impossible). I thought this in August and it happened on 16th January 2017. I decided the date for Sringaar of Baba (16-1-2017=9) nine types of devotion! Then I did all preparation with my whole heart and then next day 5a.m I went with my uncle. We had a holy time with my Saimaa. Then he went back (biggest thing is the work for which he came down didn’t happen but only Baba's Sringaar happened). Then in one week, the marriage talks started and gradually marriage was fixed on Thursday. I just said to Baba likewise in chapter 29 in Sai Satcharitra (if You are with us then our bad deeds should be over. Saimaa please end his exams and give him smile) if we have faith then anything can happen. Om Sai Ram. Aum Sai Rakshak Sharnam.
I was nobody at the age of 18. Then Baba came into my life. I wanted to be a doctor but then life turned upside down and I wanted to die. Baba gave me hope and faith. My life began and I continued on my path and then due to life’s issues changed my major to nursing. Baba helped me so much. He showed me ways to reach my goals and I knew sky is the limit. But, then again I failed nursing school despite of trying so hard. Then responsibilities came and I left my burden on Baba. I tried for one year to get into another program and they accepted me. But, at the last moment, they turned their back on me. I didn't know what to do and applied for other major. Now, I didn't know whether to pursue nursing or to change major. I welcomed suggestions from people. I am going to be 26 this year. I don't have any degree. I don't have any family support and my life sucks. I asked Baba many times for options to choose from. He shows ways and that lead me to this site.
Last year, I was doing question and answers from Sai Baba website. This year I came to this forum. Baba is there and I don't know how long He will test me for because I am dying inside. Never a day passes when I wish to be dead. I love You Sai Baba and I know You love me too and why this worry. I am growing old each passing day and reaching nowhere. Baba, Thank You for all the Love.
My first experience is that I was suffering from severe indigestion problem with frequent vomiting sensations. I thought it would be some major health problem. I was really scared and prayed Baba with His Udi. After sometime I was normal. It was really because of Baba, I must say.
My second experience is I was waiting for WES ECA evaluation report from Canada. I didn’t receive any mail from them past one month. I was really very upset and one day I prayed Baba with one rupee coin. Immediately after praying to Him I got the mail as 'Payment Received - Review In Progress'. It's only Baba Who helped me.
My third experience is I have a puppy which is only about 30 days old. When my mother was playing with puppy, it fell down from a big basket and its legs started bleeding. I was really scared since it can't express it’s pain. Then I just prayed to Baba with one rupee coin and applied Udi on it. Immediately after sometime it started walking. It’s really Baba Who helped the puppy.
