Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
This is my first post on this blog and Baba only making me to write this experience as I am very poor in narrating. Sorry to devotees for making this long and Hetalji, please feel free to edit if required. I am really happy as today I am going to share one of my experiences with the other Sai Maa's devotees. Without Baba I am not there. He is there in my life as a mother, father, Guru and God. He is everything to me. My life is meaningless without Him and His grace. I came to Sai Maa's lotus feet during my schooling when Baba's temple was newly built in our village(in 2001). Since then I have lots of experiences with our Sadguru Sai Maa in my life.
Coming to my recent experience about Shirdi trip. I had been to Shirdi in 2012 for the first time and didn't get call from Sai Maa till 2017. In Jan 2017, I had decided to go to Shirdi(by His grace) and checked for train tickets for several dates as tickets were not available. Finally booked tickets on 11th Jan 2017 for the month of February. I had booked for Shirdi express(weekly express - Wednesday) for 8th Feb(to-go) from Bangalore -> Shirdi and booked status is RLWL50/51/52/53 and for 11th Feb(to-return) from Ahmednagar-> Bangalore and booked status is RLWL14/15/16/17 for 4 members(My parents, Myself and My Husband). And the RLWL status was 27 on the day before departure (i.e, on 07th Feb). But still I had a feeling that tickets would be confirmed before train starts. We checked on next day (8th) morning also around 10:30 but tickets were not confirmed so I was bit disappointed and came to office. We reached office at around 11:30 and to my surprise my husband called me to inform that tickets got confirmed. I was very, very happy to hear that news as Baba had shown another miracle in my life. Just 4 hours before train departure, tickets got confirmed. And 2nd miracle here is that our 4 tickets got upgraded from SL -> 3A.
We had to rush home, pack everything and boarded train and we thought that we need to pay balance amount for 3A class but to our surprise TC didn't ask for anything. My mom was hesitating to come as she had knee pains badly so I prayed to Baba to make this trip comfortable for her. And the 3rd miracle was that we got 2 Side lower/2 side middle seats which are generally comfortable than normal berths and my parents enjoyed the journey. We had reached Shirdi on Thursday (9th) and had good darshan but problem here was that our return tickets were not yet confirmed and moved from RLWL 14-> 9. Me and My husband wanted to visit some other places nearby(1-day program) but my parents could not roam due to leg pain, so my father was enquiring about sleeper buses which starts late at night on the same day but I was not happy with that and scolded them. I am very sorry Sai Maa for hurting my parents. The same train in which we went to Shirdi would be returning from Shirdi->Bangalore on Friday at 8:25 a.m. Thursday night around 9 p.m I had searched to just check once if any tickets were available for my parents and to our great surprise only two tickets were available and got side berth. They had Sai Maa's darshan again on Friday early morning and enjoyed the return journey. But still I was angry on my parents for leaving soon as I was sure that return tickets would be confirmed but Baba had different plan for us. I and my husband went for Aurangabad’s visit and night it was late to go for darshan again.
Next day our return train was booked and we had darshan during morning time. Now in Shirdi they made a process that we should collect biometrics based visiting pass and should go for darshan based on the time slot and gate number given, so that we can have a darshan only once in a day. I wanted to go for darshan 3 times during this trip but we ought to leave on that day evening with 2 darshans. But our return tickets didn't get confirmed so we booked bus tickets for next day afternoon and had 3rd time darshan during morning. He fulfilled my wish and had great joy during trip and I feel His presence always with me like all other Sai Maa's devotees. I love You so much my Baba. I am praying Him for a healthy baby within a year and I am sure that He will fulfil this wish also very, very soon. Thank You for everything Baba. Please bless all Your devotees with good health. Om Sai Namo Namah Sri Sai Namo Namah Jai Jai Sai Namo Namah Sadguru Sai Namo Namah. Jai Sai Ram!
So as not to make this long story I am sharing the overviews of my experiences. 1. Thanks to Sai Baba and Sai Maa my son survived two brain operations. My son’s brain was damaged at 7 months by the mistake of a doctor. I was warned that he should not move within 8 hours, I would have to be hospitalized as an emergency. So when I watched Sai Baba serials He moved and this continued till he was two years old and he knows everything about Shirdi Sai Baba till today. Only last year at 10 years, he got the all clearance with the grace of Shri Lord Sai Baba and thanks to Sai Maa. 2. Thanks to Sai Baba and Sai Maa my husband survived cancer within 1 year of my son being born. 3. During this period of suffering all my immediate family abandoned me, my husband and child. Most painful period of my life has passed now, thanks to Sai Baba and Sai Maa. I survived a lot of turmoil from family abandonment and learnt to live in total isolation. Till date in the 11 years period of my son’s life my mum, brothers and sister have only seen my son 3 times. I must not grumble because Sai Baba and Sai Maa is his guardian and Guru, everything which my son needs Sai will take care. 4. Sai Baba and Sai Maa saved me and I survived the worst accident of anyone’s life which happened last year. I have lost hearing in one ear and eye is damaged but I am alive in the belief that whatever happens is for my good. I learnt that I have many underlying health issues thanks to this accident.
5. Thanks to Sai Baba and Sai Maa I changed countries and survived alone in a new language speaking place. 6. Due to my bad karma I lost 3 jobs consecutively and now I got a new job after 3 years, thanks to Sai Baba and Sai Maa. 7. Sai Baba and Sai Maa saved me from financial ruin during the last 12 years. A lot of cheats came and went from my life. My karma and dharma has helped me survive and recognize the saviour of all Sai Baba and Sai Maa. I won’t elaborate as Baba says why add karma ties just let it be and let it go. 8. Sai Baba and Sai Maa is helping me with survival and acceptance of their presence in my life. Each day I read this blog and learn how faith and patience can help you overcome the worst challenges in life. 9. Shraddha and Saburi are my best friends and Sai Baba and Sai Maa knows every wish of mine. Whether it is fulfilled or not is their wish as they are the decision makers. I trust that they will only grant you something that which you deserve so I am okay with their gift, even a pinch of dust from them is like diamonds for us mortals.
I always thought and said it to Baba, when my turn will come to post the experience and finally Baba has given me chance to post experience for the wish that I had wished for my friend. I am a working woman and one day I heard from my friend that one of my friends whom I know had been diagnosed with dermoid cyst and along with some other cyst in one of her ovaries. It was a cancerous cyst and due to which the ovary had to be removed. It was difficult for girl that to single (unmarried) to have ovary removed as you all know that without ovaries, it is no way of getting pregnancy. After hearing that I was totally disturbed. I was told this news by my friend on Wednesday and the surgery was scheduled on Friday first. I was disturbed and did not know what to do? After I reached work station I saw Baba’s idol on my desk and prayed Baba saying Baba it is really tough for a girl to have removed her ovary. And my friend has dreams of getting married. Please help. Soon it struck in mind that Baba's Udi does miracles. So I pinged my friend and asked her to give Udi to the one (my friend) who was getting surgery done. So with lots of faith and confidence, I put Udi packet at Baba's idol and gave it my friend. I asked my friend to insist the other one to have this Udi in water. I was a bit worried whether the other friend (who is getting surgery) would accept and drink it or not. But by Baba's grace she drank it. And I prayed Baba saying that my other friend (who is getting surgery) should not get her ovary removed and if so I will post the experience. I prayed Baba to help her and save her from the surgery. Fortunately my friend's surgery got postponed from Friday to Sunday. We visited today (27 Feb 2017) and prior to this did not know any news or updates from her as she was still under observation.
After visiting today, I heard from herself that the doctor said the ovary is fine and it will not be removed as the cyst has layered the ovary and they just removed that. After listening to that my happiness knew no boundaries. I just loudly said Thank God (Baba). After coming out of the ward, I hugged my friend saying I am happy, I am happy. Yes, I am happy, its Baba Who made me happy. Although it was not wish of my own, but yes it was my wish for my friend and it got fulfilled. I am sure, Baba will make me post my own experience for which I am awaiting His blessing since 4 years. Baba You are awesome. I just love You so much. You have not only fulfilled my wish but boosted, increased my faith, love and patience. Baba I just need Your love. I do not need anything other than it because if I have Your love then I will get everything in this world. Please be with all devotees and please shower Your love. Thank You so much Baba.
1st experience- In 2010 March/April (navratri time) my doorbell rang, I went out to see who was there. I opened the door and it was Sai Baba! He was asking for roti (bread) I got goose bumps. I went inside and took 5 rupees (as there was no roti at that time) for Him but no one was there. I started my Scooty and roamed here and there but all in vain. He was not a saint in similar dress like Baba because I and my 11 year old cousin (who also saw Baba) are witness of this scene. A light was coming out of His clothes. He was sparkling unlike a normal man. After two months of this incidence I visited Shirdi. That time did not know about Baba except His name. My maternal uncle booked mine and my brother's ticket to Shirdi without even asking my parents. True are the words of Baba "I drag devotees to me just like a sparrow whose feet are tied with thread". I can say Babaji came Himself just to take me in His shelter.
Experience 2- My pet dog was in his last days. He used to cry day and night. On that day I came back home after my tuition and my dog was screaming. It killed me from inside. My mom said have breakfast but I denied because I wanted to perform prayer for my dog's mukti (freedom from this painful life). I asked Baba please give his rest of sufferings to me and Babaji listened to my prayers. I gave a piece of roti to my dog and he bit me. He became quite after an hour he bit me. Next day morning when we woke he was dead. One thing which I forgot to describe is there was a piece of roti in roti box but no one placed it there. There used to be full roti always not a piece. I am damn sure Babaji placed that piece of roti there. Babaji fulfilled my wish. He gave me my dog's sufferings and gave him mukti.
Experience 3- Last year my dad had severe pain in left side of chest. My brother and my husband took him to doctor. They said it could be a symptom of heart attack. My brother told me this, as I was at home. I was depressed and I don’t know why I opened my Facebook in this hard time and lo! I saw Babaji's wallpaper "I myself guarding you and your family". We took my father to another doctor for second opinion and he confirmed that there was nothing to worry and it was not a heart problem but it was just due to acidity. My heartfelt thanks to Sai Babaji for His every blessing on me and my family. Om Sai Ram.
Being a student in class 12, it was a very busy time for me during December, January months as I was applying to Universities and studying for my pre-boards which were in January. In the mean time my SAT physics test was required to apply to NIT colleges under NRI quota. I wanted to apply to NIT for engineering, if I do not get into American college which I had applied. Because I was very busy, I could not study, for the test at all which was on January 22nd. I got very scared before the exam thinking I can't even get 600/800 in the exam. I did not prepare at all and before writing the exam I just prayed to Baba in my mind thinking that only You can guide me in the test. I was very scared about the results as my first parents would shout at me saying I wasted money without giving my full efforts. I was very scared and before checking the results I again prayed Baba. When I checked I had got 750/800 without studying for the test at all! Oh! I was very surprised and instantly knew that this was not possible without the help of Baba and His blessings. I am very grateful and thankful to Baba. He saved me.
Now my American University results will be released in March. I hope with the blessings of Baba I will get seat in good University and the visa processing will go smoothly without any problems. I also pray that Baba take care of me and everyone who is writing their board exam in 10 days. Om Sairam.
