Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
Salutations to Sai Ram! Om Sai Ram. May Sai bless us all to live through this life with good deeds and reach His lotus feet in due course? I am a humble, simple devotee of Sai Ram. My virtue is only because of Him and His grace on me, which He gave me even when I probably did not deserve. His leelas are boundless in nature, and I have been lucky to have witnessed many in my life in various phases and still experiencing. But today specifically, I want to talk about how Baba accepted me at His feet, or rather pulled me to His side, and my recent most experience, which I promised Baba to write here. I knew about Baba from my childhood because my mother is a devotee. But for me, I was more of a Devi bhakta, though I revered Him as God. But this was due to change very soon.
While in College, I faced many challenges related to my degree. I was a topper throughout my schooling. Inspite of working my hardest, I did not get the expected results, and my career seemed to be bleak. I was lost in a whirlpool of thoughts, and was completely shattered mentally. It was at this time that my mother gave me Sai Satcharitra. Bless her always, as my first Guru in life, she imbibed Sai love in me. She motivated me to read Satcharitra, if not to solve my problems, atleast to feel peace. I started studying on a Thursday to complete the saptah Parayan. The first day, I read the recommended chapters, and went to sleep at night. That night, Baba blessed me with a dream of His.
I was in a Shiva temple and witnessing the wedding of Shiva and Parvati in Their actual form. I was moved and felt blessed to have seen such a rare sight. Then I moved to another room, where I saw Baba sitting there in His posture. I bowed to Him reverentially. He told me, it was time and asked me to come with Him. Hearing Him, my voice choked and tears started flowing down my eyes. Though, in my ignorance and foolishness, I told Him that I could not come with Him then. I had to be with my mother and care for her. I asked Him to allow me to stay with my mother for some more time and then I will join Him. He said okay. When I woke up, I felt bliss supreme. Not just that, He also gave dream vision to my grandmother who was sleeping beside me. He reminded her about a puja that my Mama, her son was ignoring and asked her to tell him to continue doing it. He gave me dream darshan the next day too. This time, He took me to a discourse by Swami Maharaj from Akkalkot, and told me to listen and learn. This way, I was enrolled in His Darbaar forever.
After that, it has been more than 10 years, but I am lucky enough to have had Baba's support through thick and thin. When everything in life seemed desolate, He held on to my hand and guided me to traverse the path. I have felt many hardships in life, maybe due to many past bad karma. But, I must have done some good deeds, because I am lucky to be at Baba's feet. Baba always helped me to realise the good in every bad.
A recent experience of mine, or rather of my family was that my sister was in extreme troubles at her in-laws. She was constantly being tortured and abused emotionally. She has an infant son, and we kept telling her to keep faith and sail through this hardship, atleast for the sake of her son. Everyday she used to cry. At one point, situations became so serious, that my parents told her to come back home with the kid and they would take care of her. But I kept pushing her to keep peace and hold on. This went on for a very long time. Recently, it reached a point where she realised it was not safe for her or her son to stay at her in laws. She called me and told me that I had tried a lot to keep her married life happy by counselling her, but it was time now to move on, because she could just not take it anymore. This shattered me completely. My parents had planned to go in the weekend and bring her back to our house. This was on a Tuesday night. Immediately, having no other to vent my pain to, I ran to Baba in my puja room. I fell at His feet and begged to make things better. I knew nothing was impossible for Him, if He wanted to set things right. I told Him that we trusted Him when we got our sister married, and it was upto Him what He wants for her. If separating is what is in her karma, who can change? After pleading with Baba and venting my pain, I went to sleep.
Next day He gave me the idea to start Satcharitra parayan for her wellbeing. I did not have sufficient time to complete it before my parents be going to fetch her. I pleaded with Baba that trust me, I will complete the parayan in 1 week. You please make situation better for my sister, and wonder of wonders, He worked His Magic. Same night, my brother-in- law realised his mistake. He spoke to my sister and apologised for his wrong behaviour. He promised to work on the relationship and take good care of my sister and their son. They spoke for a long time, and cleared all their misunderstandings, and patched up. It has been more than a week since then, and everything has been going well for my sister by His grace. Needless to say, He guided me to complete my parayan successfully in a week. Earlier I have had many times, where I was unable to complete due to unforeseen circumstances. But this time, He made me complete it, and helped my sister. Only Baba could have turned things around so quickly. Nobody, other than Sadguru has the kindness or the virtue to rewrite our destiny. Koti Koti pranams to Baba(Crores of Salutations to Baba). May He always guide us, and take us to His heavenly abode.
All of sudden on last Sunday night I got a call from my aunt (mother’s sister) called me, said that her son had called to uncle and conveyed a message “I am going to suicide and for that you are the reason” and disconnected the call. From there on he was not lifting the phone, so believe me the tension they have faced cannot be felt by others. I immediately started from my home to my cousin’s home (we did not even know exact location), thought to reach near to his home. So while going I took a vow that we should know before going that he is fine and does not do suicide. We tried every option to reach via his phone or to know his home address. But all efforts were ending with blank. At last through his friend we got to know that he answered the phone. And after trying myself too, he lifted and said fine. So we relieved. Thank You so much Baba for this and my Pranamam to Baba.
Second one is, experienced while travelling in train: last Thursday night I and one of the lady relative were travelling to Hyderabad (one night journey). I had confirmed berth in S5, but she had RAC 71 in S1, we boarded in S1 and tried to persuade TT for confirmation ticket by saying she is alone and night it was not safe to sit alone. Requested to give any free berth in the Coach. He simply declined and said cannot give as before her few more members were waiting, I had given a hint that I could give money as well. But he did not listen. I went to my berth location (different TT) to show my ticket. And I have offered my confirmed berth to lady. After she went, while I was thinking, Baba I have done the help that I could do to lady, I will not ask the TT again for berth please arrange for me. In next station a lady was boarded (RAC 70). TT came to check her ticket and asked where was the lady that she was supposed to be there, I said I had given my birth to her. He then replied go and take the berth 19 in this coach, think about my situation at that point of time, I had asked how much for berth, he replied berth 19, did not take single penny from me, immediately went back to another coach did not wait for my thanks at least. That was amazing right, few hours back he did not listen to me, now he offered himself. So think Who did this miracle? My sastanga pranam to Baba. Om Sairam! Lot of miracles to share….if Baba provides me the strength then will post them one by one.
Again I visited India in Jan 2017 to do a Bhoomi Pooja and started the construction. In Bangalore at my home, I prayed in front of my life size Baba that everything should go smoothly as a strong wish of my mom. I was searching some paper work and I found the unopened letter that I got in US. I gave it to my parents to open it, my Mom told this is the letter that Baba promised and gave it to my Dad to open it, Wonder Of Wonders a penny (US Cent) came rolling from the envelope. My joy knew no bounds, my parents were so happy, I was stunned. I knew it was Baba's assurance that He Is The One And Only Who would help me. My Dear devotees, Baba Bless all of us. Please Pray for my Mother, my family. Baba Saranam!
Here my experience goes. I had back problem. I had very bad pain so much that I had problem in walk also. We consulted an orthopaedic. He suggested x-ray and some tests. X-ray report was normal but my blood reports regarding my thyroid was not normal according to the person who had my blood test. It was my birthday when I came to know about my reports. I didn't want to eat pills life time. I was very afraid. I prayed my saviour my Sai Maa and when I showed my reports to the doctor he said everything is good no need to worry. My Sai Maa is so merciful. Sai Maa please always keep Your hand on me and my family. My father is suffering from a puncture in his body, doctor suggested him to have medicines but if it doesn't get cured then he has to have a surgery. Please Maa save him from operation. Please Maa shower Your blessings on us. Sai Maa please help me.
