Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
I have shared 3 posts earlier but it has not been published. But when I was introduced to this site I wished or promised Baba that I would publish experience if I get the job first. I think that’s why Baba has decided not to publish those before I post this experience. In all my rough phases of life or happy movements of life I would run and search my Sainath’s feet. As its said in Sai Satcharitra that one who loves Him and prays to Him with devotion Baba would see to that his pot is never empty, this phrase is very true in my case. I have had lot of Baba’s experience in my life from small one to very big once. But today I would love to narrate one for my experiences with Baba where I got a job because of Baba help. This post would be a little long you can modify it as required, but I wanted it narrate the full story so that the essence of Baba’s blessing would be felt completely. I had promised Baba that I would share my experience with all the devotees in this blog if my wish comes true. But to be more honest I am penning this down even before I got the end result, But I would surely post it on the day I get to know the wish has turned true. The reason why I am penning it in advance is that I want to summarize all the details and I have a strong belief that my Sainatha will make it come true.
I was working for a Indian MNC in Chennai and my husband also works for the same company. My hubby travelled to UK on a work visa to onsite for the same company. I was travelling on and off to UK on a work visa due to new law change of where I should have a year of cooling period. My husband was in a different visa so he was able to extend his visa and continue working here. My daughter and I alone travelled on and off to UK. In the year 2015 I decided that it was not right to keep shifting on and off to UK as my daughter was missing a lot of daddy time and she was not getting close to him. I also thought it was not right to come to UK and stay with hubby for 1 year and return back to India and stay there for more than a year due to project issues and things like that. So I decided to resign my job, but I was searching for a job in UK before resignation. I would like to say here that my husband and my parents were very supportive, they didn’t say no to any of the decisions that I took in this course of time.
I was searching for jobs from April 2016 and till May 2016 all wanted me to join immediately but my visa was to get over by July 2016 where I should travel back to India and come in a dependent visa again after that. I thought all my search was in vain. In the mean time I prayed Baba to get me a job before I return back to India so that I can come back and join the new company. But at one point I got frustrated. There was company in which I attended interview in May and they asked me to join immediately but I was not able to as I had 3 months notice in my previous organisation. So they said sorry. I stopped my job search and all of a sudden I got a call from the same company if I could come and meet the CTO by the month of June on 15th. I went and met the CTO and came and resigned my Indian MNC thinking that I will come and search for a job later. But within 3 to 4 days this company gave me an offer to join by August end. I was very happy and thanked Baba for the same. After joining the organisation I was able to understand that it was not the job which I wanted for and the culture here was completely different and the travel time was too much 2hr one way through train and it was very difficult for me to manage my child, family and work. But I was able to understand Baba wanted to give this job to me as I had some loans to pay and if I didn’t had a job it would be difficult for me and my husband to manage. So He had given me this job so that I could search for another job later. So again I started searching for job and all the job interview went in vain. That was when I came to know about this site and Guru vrat on this site.
So I started my Vrat on Jan 2017. And each week I had a progress in my job search. Week 1: On the first week of the vrat I got a call from a company for a discussion for one of the Business Analyst position and the initial interview was scheduled on the Friday on that week. They said the process would take time and they would get back to me Week 2: on the start of the second week I got a positive mail from them that they were looking on what best they can do for me. Friday of second week I got a call that they would like to proceed to the next level of interviews Week3 : on the start of the week 3, I had the other rounds and I was informed that they were happy to proceed and they would share my details with the client and they would schedule the last client interview with the client. But unfortunately they were unable to do so Week 4: The manager to whom I discussed went on the 2 week vacation and the process came to halt. But in this week my husband was trying for car license and he had failed a couple of times before he got his license but this time he got it which was a very good news and I thanked Baba for that. Week 5: the manager returned back and said that the customer was very much interested in my CV and would like to have a discussion with me and he would confirm the dates. Week 6 : The client interview was scheduled by Friday and with Baba’s grace I did it well. Week 7:. I came to know that the interviewer had shared positive feedback with his senior manager. Week 8 : There was no much news from them. Week 9: on Tuesday I had a call that the senior manager wanted to have an informal discussion but time was not confirmed. But the next day Wednesday all of a sudden the manager arranged for the discussion and with Baba’s help I did it well. Week 10: on Tuesday I was checking the Q and A site where Baba said she what happens by 11’0 clock tomorrow. When I was coming to my office I was thinking Baba I don’t know if You are there. You gave this interview when I was in the vrat time. So You should help me get it. But I don’t know when it’s going to happen? If You are really watching me and You are with me I should get call from the Manager with some input before 11 as You said. And to the wonder of wonder by 8:45 just after a second that I thought this in my mind I got a call from the manger. He didn’t say about the result as he didn’t have info from the senior manager. But he said that he was trying to contact the customer and he was unable to reach him and he had a chance to talk to one of the recruiting managers and he came to know that the senior manager gave positive feedback, but he was yet to get it confirmed from him. He said he would somehow try to get the result by that week. But everything looked positive. I felt very positive that Baba was with me and He would surely make this happen.
On the 11th week Monday by around 7:24 p.m, I got a call from the company manager who was taking care of my recruitment that the client were happy and they would like to give me the offer letter. He added that he would like me to join by April 20 and also they will send me the offer by the next day. I was jumping in Joy and thanked Baba for the help that He did. Baba always takes care of His devotees and loves them the most. But the next day again I got a call saying that as I was in dependent visa there were some issues and they would like to discuss with the Visa officer in their organisation and then send me the contract which would take 1 week time. I was completely down. I was asking Baba it was all Your plan and help that I came to this level why was this happening to me when I was under Your feet? On the 12th week Tuesday 28th March, I got a call from the recruitment manager that I would be getting my contract today and everything looked fine and good. As he called me in the morning I received the contract in my mail at afternoon. I was so happy and thanked Baba from bottom of my heart. Without my Sai nothing would have been possible. Thank You very much Sai. I have signed the contract and sent the same to them. They have sent me the signed copy from the director as well. Also the current company accepted my resignation and the notice period was 3 months, but after discussing with the HR they accepted and they have confirmed that my last day will be end of April. So I will be able to join the new company without any issues by May. Thank You very much Baba of this wonderful miracle. Thank You is a small word. I will remind always at Your feet and spread Your words and act by Your words. Love You Baba.
We applied for our citizenship here in the USA and all the process went smooth and really fast than expected. The date of interview came and we were very positive about the interview, since we had all the valid documents in hand and were very much confident with all the answers for the Interview questions. We went to the interview and I was first called in, next was my husband's turn. I passed the interview, but the interviewer had a question about my husband's Employer. (The interviewers were not quite aware of the concept of porting the EADs. - This is a process in Green card) He wanted more proofs on this and he put a hold on my citizenship. They sent both of us with RFE (Request for Evidence). We enquired couple of other friends and came to know that this was a completely new thing, usually they never ask questions that deep, related to employer. We were very sad, I cried a lot, asking why this had happened to us, and what did we do wrong.
The following week I started Baba 9 weeks Vrat. Whenever I used to check Question and Answer site, I used to always get a reply - "Your work will be completed." We didn’t know what to do, were looking out for Lawyers to go ahead and submit our paperwork. We chose 2 lawyers, one costs us around $500 and other was asking for $2500 since it was a famous company. We were in a dilemma, didn’t know which one to go ahead with, I was thinking may be the 2nd one was good, they charge so much so may be they will do something better. I prayed to Baba to help us choose the lawyer to help us get our Citizenship. We left everything on Baba's feet and went ahead with the first lawyer.
It was Thursday early hours, my 2nd week of pooja. I had a dream. The dream goes as below- I was pretty much tensed, and was waiting for some news. I don’t know where I was, but there were some pictures of Gods in that home. I was praying, there was a person standing, he said go ahead and pray. I prayed, and then I saw my cousin come over. I said "Can you please call your brother (my husband)? I am very much tensed." He called my husband and gave the phone to me. I said "What happened?" He replied "It is done." I said "Really?" He replied "Yes! It is done" I said "Both of ours?" He replied "Oh Yes! It is done" Then I was overjoyed and was thinking to myself. "Good, we didn’t get the processing done with the second lawyer, good we went ahead with the first lawyer" And I woke up. The time was around 4 a.m on Thursday. I cried. I now knew that it was Baba who assured me that my prayer will be answered and he wanted me to be happy. Baba also assured me that I was talking about my citizenship in my dream, not something else. Then I wasn’t worried. I know I have my Baba to help us. I was just doing my pooja and left everything to Baba. I didn’t tell anyone about my dream. It was 7th week when we got the notice that our citizenship has been approved and we were called in for Oath ceremony. Happily I completed my 9 weeks vrat. Thank You Baba, Thanks for being with us at all the times. Thanks for listening to our prayers and Thank You for answering and assuring us Your presence one more time. Sorry Baba for the late post.
I had just arrived in Saudi-Arabia and had got my daughter admitted to a school. At the very first weekend we received free passes from the school to visit one entertainment park on Friday (in Middle east this is an off day like Sunday).Though we didn't know anything about Riyadh at that time, we left for that park along with our Indian neighbour's family in one taxi. The park was more than 50 kms away from the city. The taxi person dropped us, we stayed and enjoyed along with our families till around 5 pm and then suddenly realised that we cannot get any taxi from this place since it was not a regular thoroughfare. The main highway was about 25 kms from this place and all the people who had come to the park were local Saudis who had come in their own vehicles. We were stunned to discover this. At this point I started praying to Sai. Our neighbour went to the main road, which was around 75 metres from the park, in search of a taxi, but was of no use, as none would come this way.
It started getting dark and we all started getting worried. Suddenly I was amazed to see one pick-up vehicle, which was going away from the city, moving towards my friend. My friend told the Saudi driver, who was a native Bedouin, who could speak only Arabic, the name of our area. The next moment the Saudi man gestured to come inside as he didn't know English. I could only see the Saudi man from behind; he was putting a head cloth exactly like Sainath Maharaj, had a similar beard and spoke nothing while driving us down to our home. I still can't make out that a totally unknown Saudi person who was 50 kms away from the city and who was on his way to his own town, comes to drop some totally unknown people whom he had not seen while my friend was on the main road and took only 25 SR as a token from us. Om Sai Ram.
Six years after this incident I was in UAE in a similar situation. I was waiting in a remote area for a taxi and none would come. I was doing Sai-naam smaran incessantly. Suddenly a man in his private car stopped in front of me and said I don't know why I had a feeling that I should stop for you and ask if you need to be dropped somewhere. I folded my hands to Sainath Maharaj. The gentleman was a Pakistani national and dropped me to my destination. Throughout the drive the man spoke to me as if he knew me for years. When asked about payment he said ...Apni Khushi Se Do..Jo Dena Ho (Whatever you want to give, give as per your wish and happiness).Om Sai Ram. May the Lord, our beloved Sainath Maharaj, bless us all and forgive our mistakes. I pray to Him to keep us firmly planted in His faith at His lotus feet. Om Sai Ram to all.
His project got over in early Dec 2016. From then on he was trying to get projects. Things started in a good way but as days passed there were so much stress and pressure. He had no sleep, no proper food and was always stressed. No clarity on projects. He completely broke. Then I decided for Baba Nav guruvar vrat. Wonders of wonders happened in no time. Slowly things got to pick up. I started vrat in first week of Feb and my husband too joined me. By 4th he just got into project and things settled. We moved to a new location. By His grace we got new house and we are settling slowly. I successfully completed my vrat and invited my friends from new place to give prasad. And happily went to temple gave food and thanked Baba forever as all that happened was His grace and sympathy on the prayer. This Exactly Is An Example Of The Power Of Vrat. How Baba easily turned a situation upside down.
We came USA for financial purpose in case if he didn’t get project we got to go back. As situations are not favouring here we were sure we might not be back again to USA. But things changed in week’s time. Baba You Do Miracles. Baba You always know what I wanted. It's nothing but my kid and husband’s health should be fine. My son is your blessings take care of him always. I'm always very much concerned of him in all ways. May be the mother in me does so. Please give him good health, knowledge. I completely surrender to You Baba. Every bit in my life happens as per Your grace. I want to do my parayan. Please help me in that Baba since it has been a long time I did one. This is my letter to You Baba. I can never thank You by words for whatever You did so I surrender to You the faith and my prayers. You have been through all my phases. Baba, please help me to throw negative thoughts and vibes. Make my mind positive and spiritual. Believe in You a lot Baba. I know You will fulfil wishes of Your devotees. Give more faith and patience. Love You Baba.
Coming to experiences, I have a lot of experiences in my day to day life. Baba is blessing and guiding me whenever I require, I will tell you regarding one of my experiences and it is related to my job. I work in IT; my manager had a very good impression on me. One fine day we got a new requirement to hire a new resource for our project, so my manager was looking and was not getting right resource. So he asked me if I knew anyone? So I thought I would recommend some of my friend to the role. But everyone amongst my friends were currently working in my technology or complete were freshers so I didn’t want to recommend a fresher to the role as it was a senior position. So I checked with one of my mutual friend as he had some average experience but recommended him saying he was so much skilled person and everything went fine and I was part of interview panel and selected him. He joined office two weeks later, everything went fine. As time passed due to performance issues he was fired, and later on one fine day in late night I got a text from him saying I will let the manager know what happened behind the scenes of interview. I was completely shocked with that as it was a conflict of interest and was not the correct process to do for selecting a candidate. I was worried a lot and literally depressed and went near Baba and cried a lot Baba please help me from this situation, I will do sapthaha parayan and will go to temple to do 108 pradikshanas for 11 days, I don’t know what miracle Baba did and He brought me out of the issue and am really thankful to Baba. This was just one experience. Whenever I feel I am in trouble I go to Baba’s temple and sit in Dwarakamayi looking at Baba which gives me peace of mind. Never Lose Your Faith In Baba, Baba will always help you!
After B.Sc I joined for Job and after one year I got Engineering seat (lateral entry). I started going to college and I didn’t know more about Sai miracles. Though it was a gap from B.Sc to BE I was not able to study anything and after one month of college I started crying and ready to quit BE because was getting very less marks. One day my friend Lekha and her mother told to pray Baba and I started praying Baba. From that day I always started praying Baba and singing Baba’s song. Again from that day I started studying by praying Baba and by Baba’s grace I got distinction and in the final year. I didn’t do well in one subject; I thought it will not get clear. One day before the result Baba came in my dream and gave one letter as soon as I opened that letter it was pass and got first class. Baba is really great and I am praying daily and doing Sai vrat on Thursdays for my marriage. So please bless me early with a good husband Baba. Om Sai Ram. Om Sai Ram. Please bless all Your devotees Baba. Om Sairam.
