Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
I got married in 2015 and shifted to Bangalore. There was a Baba temple very near to my house and somehow I felt a strong urge to visit the temple. Along with my husband and in-laws, I visited the temple and thereafter I started going to the temple regularly. Somewhere my mind told me that if I visited the temple regularly for three Thursdays I would conceive. However, one way or the other I was not able to do that. In April 2016, I managed to visit the temple for three Thursdays along with my husband and I conceived. This made my faith in Baba grow.
Throughout my pregnancy I regularly worshipped Baba and Ganesh. My pregnancy was proceeding quite well and all my reports were also normal. Since I couldn't go to my parents’ house for delivery, my mother came over to stay with us after my baby shower, while my father was to come over a month before my due date (which was in January 2017). However, everything changed in that one day in November 2016. I had been having sleepless night for two days and headache. Although my mother asked me to check with the doctor, I decided to wait for some days to see if everything got back to normal. However, from the morning of November 8, I starting vomiting quite a number of times and even the headache worsened. After repeated request from my mother and husband, I booked an appointment with the doctor for the next day morning. However, in the evening (around 7), the vomiting increased and I even got a bout of convulsion. My husband, father-in-law and mother (my mother-in-law expired in 2015) held me and splashed water on my face since I had started biting my tongue. After 5 minutes I fainted and went to sleep. Meanwhile, my husband called my doctor and she asked him to get me to the hospital ASAP. They got an ambulance and moved me to the hospital.
The doctor checked me and after some tests told my husband that my blood pressure had shot very high (160/180) because of which I got the convulsions. She said I needed to be operated the next day itself since I had started passing on the BP to my baby and in case they waited and I got another bout of convulsions then both the lives would be in danger. However, she told my husband not to tell me anything and that she would speak to me herself before the operation. I was given medicines to make me sleep at night so that they could get my vitals to normal. Next day I was shifted to another branch of the same hospital and my doctor came. She told me that I would be operated upon and that the baby would have to be kept in NICU for some days for him to recover since he would be a premature baby. I told her my date was 2 months later, but she said they could not risk the lives and that getting operated was the right thing for me at that moment. My husband was asked to sign high-risk declaration form, since things were not good. However, I kept my faith and started chanting Jai Ganesh, Jai Sainath even as I was dressed for the operation and taken into the operation theatre. I was not in my complete sense because of the medication but I kept chanting.
I was operated and a baby boy was born. Around the same time, my sister was praying to Baba and she got a vision where she saw Baba operating upon me and a baby boy being born weighing 1.32kg (She told this to my mother when she called her to inform after the operation.) He was immediately moved to the NICU and I was shifted to the ICU for monitoring. That whole day I couldn't even see my baby since I was not in a position to go the NICU and the baby couldn't be brought there. The next day I was helped by the nurse and taken to the NICU where he was lying with ventilator support and other tubes. I was later shifted to the ward and I stayed in the hospital for another 10 days for things to come to normal. Everyday I got to spend an hour with my baby in the NICU. I watched as the nurses fed him through tube and administered him injections and medicines. After I was discharged, I was to visit him everyday and spend time with him so that he got my touch and feel as that helped premature babies in their development. Everyday I prayed to Baba and Ganesh to give me the good news when my baby would be discharged so that we could get home.
During his stay in the NICU, one day his condition worsened and he vomited, thereby losing weight and weighing only 1.1kg. But our whole family kept praying for him and slowly he started showing improvement. After a one-month stay, he was finally discharged on 9th December. He weighed 1.4 kg then and was smaller than the length of my elbow. But at least he was coming home finally. Also, I was not allowed to feed him directly. I had to express milk and feed him since he was too small to suck by himself. Things were not easy even after that. A week later his haemoglobin dropped and he was again admitted to hospital for blood transfusion. All this while, I prayed to Baba and Ganesh and read Satcharitra. With their blessings, my son slowly started picking up. Now he is 6 months old. Although he is still small for a 6-month-old baby, he is slowly improving. Now when I see him playing, I thank God for being with him. From a baby who was so small that his cry itself one couldn't hear unless they were next to him, now he is growing up to be someone who smiles at everyone and listens whenever we play any bhajans. Thank You Baba for being with him. Shower Your blessings on him always so that he grows up to be a nice human and continues to have strong faith towards You. Jai Sainath.
Again in 2014, 2015 same process repeated (conducted several interviews and finally they rejected). Y Company was very good company and my hubby kept on applying to the same company again and again. In mid of 2016 project from X company got over and after facing so many struggles we moved to another location for new project. I thought our troubles came to an end. After working for 5 months Company X released my hubby from project and said December 1st was the project release date. So in Nov16 again we applied to the same Y Company through referral. In mid of Nov my hubby cleared first round and we didn't have any hope as this company would take minimum 3 months to clear all process as we had experienced with this company from last 2 years onwards. On Dec 1st my hubby was released from project from X company and was looking for some other projects in the same company. So many interviews happened and all project managers promised to give project, but at last they couldn’t because of billing issue. On Dec 16th manager from X company called and asked us to leave to India on 18th. That time it was severe snow storm where we lived. I cried in front of Baba to show some way.
On 17th my husband sat before system to book tickets to India. That evening we got offer letter from Y Company. So that night we decided to quit X Company and submitted resignation on 18th Dec and my hubby's last working day in X company was on 28th Dec. HR accepted resignation without asking any questions. Within 1 week Y company started VISA transfer process. At that time HR from Y said that my husband could join company as soon we got receipt number. Usually we get receipt number within 1 or 2 weeks. We waited with lots of hope to get receipt until Jan 1st of 2017. But we didn't get it. When we tried to approach HR we didn't get good response from them. After mailing so many times finally they said "something went wrong and they themselves didn't get receipt number as it might have got misplaced somewhere else". In this stage completely we lost hope. Even if we would go back to India, there would be no job as we resigned from X company. Here in US we cannot stay without job more than 2 months. Little amount was in our hands. That amount would be sufficient for lease breakage charges and return flight tickets to India. So we left with no money in hands. Ohooo Sai Deva.
One day while watching Sai shej aarthi (which comes in US at 12.30 noon) I cried and asked "why He has taken job and not allowing to join in another company, and He promised me 3 years back to give Y company"??. After 2 days HR from Y Company called and said that they were filing for second time. This time it went well and they got receipt number within 10 Days. Now HR said we could join once VISA got approved. So again with lots of hope we waited 10 more days for Visa approval and it got approved. Now this time HR said they would let us know when to join as there were no projects. With our friends we came to know that in Y company there were nearly 200 people waiting on bench to get projects. We didn’t have any hopes of getting project call from Y company as they give first preference to their own employees than people coming from outside. Already 2 months were over without job and all our savings had almost came to an end. So we decided to wait for 20 more days and go back to India with empty hands. After 10 days interviews happened and finally my hubby got selected in 1 project. So Y company had given joining date. We joined to Y company in the end of Feb 17. After new govt, formation (very less opportunities to Indians) and when more than 500 people on bench, we got job. This happened because of only Sai Deva’s blessings. Baba's promise became true after 3 years.
With this experience I learnt one thing in my life, problems come to us because of our past karmas. But if we look at Sai's lotus feet with lots and lots and lots of hope, then our Sai blesses that hope to become true. In this process it may take few weeks or months or years depending on our belief on Sai padukas. Now we got RFE for amendment. I am very much sure that this job was given by Sai Deva. He won’t let it go for such a short period. Sarvam Saimayam. Jai Sai Ram.
As I mentioned above, my life is a blessing of Baba. My mother worshipped Bhagwaan Baba even before I was born. I knew Bhagawan Baba through her. I am a married woman and I live in US. I don't have anyone to share about all the miracles and the experiences. My husband and his family do not have much devotion and they sometimes don't understand my worship/feel/love/devotion for Baba. I always do my puja alone and there is no one with me even at my arati. My husband believes in Baba but he does not do any formal worship. He goes to Sai mandir with me. I miss my mother. My mother is no more on this earth. Had she been alive, she would have understood and I could have shared to her. Dear devotees, I am sharing you all because I know you all will understand my feelings.
Miracle 1-Before, I used to see Baba in dreams, but these days I did not see Him. I prayed Him day and night to come in my dream. I always keep His picture under my pillow. Finally I saw Him after so long time. It looked like Shirdi in my dream. There was a priest. I was with my mother. Shirdi Sai was in a red dress. One of my letters to Baba was offered through the priest. I still had one more letter in my hand and I wanted to give it to Baba. I was standing there with my mother. I was waiting happily. Then it changed. Again, I saw Shirdi Sai Baba's form in the form of a picture. After a while, the same image converted into Sathya Sai Baba and it finally converted into Lord Shri Krishna. I said to myself- Shirdi Sai Baba and Sathya Sai Baba are God incarnations. Last night I saw a dream where my friend gave a sunglass which had written on it Sathya Sai. I was happier. I said myself in dream - "May be God wants me to see the world through His eyes." It was worth 49 dollars and I wanted to get it despite I had no money. My dream ended then. All I mean to say is that I waited Bhagawan Baba to see in my dream with faith and patience and I was able to. For me He is my everything. The only thing I ask from Baba is "motherly love" and His blessings. Rest, God has given me everything. I wish Baba take me as His daughter and love me more and more.
Miracle 2 - whenever you are in any problem either you recite Sai's name, apply Vibhuti/Udi, drink it with water, read Kastha Nivarana Mantra or just remember Bhagawan Baba, He is going to help you. It happened with me. I was suffering from viral flu. I was having eye pain, whole body ache and all viral symptoms. I usually have to take lot of ibuprofen for headache. I did not have plain acetaminophen, so, I could not take any medicine. I just did not want to take more ibuprofen. I just prayed Baba to cure me and I drank Vibhuti mixed water. After some time, my viral symptoms faded and I was completely cured.
Miracle 3- Last night I had a very bad headache and even medicine did not help me. It was so hard for me. Even when I moved my head, it bothered me and I was nauseated. I just prayed and prayed Baba to help me. I promised Him if my pain goes away, I would post my experience. It was hard for me to fall asleep. Baba finally helped me and I could sleep without any trace of pain. I pray Bhagawan Baba to make me free from this headache and eye pain. This health issue troubles me a lot. Oh Deva, please help me now and always!
Miracle 4- My husband was travelling and unfortunately he was about to miss the flight due to short transit. When I knew, I recited Sai's Kastha Nivarana Strotram and after some minutes he called me and said he boarded. It was indeed a miracle for me. There are many more miracles which I would be writing in my next post. Let everyone remain in peace and be happy. Thank you for reading my post. Sairam! Ananta Koti Brahmanda Naika Rajadhi Raja Yogi Raja Paramguru Shri Satchitanda Sadguru Sainatha Maharaj Ki Jai! God bless you all!
Now coming to my experience: Every year in the month of May along with our family we go to Shirdi and spend a week in Shirdi. Likewise even this year we booked our tickets, reached Shirdi and enjoyed the presence of Baba for a week and then came a day of our departure. Our train was scheduled at 11 a.m in Nagarsol railway station which takes one and half hour journey from Shirdi. We packed everything and was about to start at 10 in the morning. And then suddenly news came that train was running 8 hours late due to some railway track problems. We took rest in our room in Shirdi thinking of starting after 8 hours. We again enquired about the status of the train. They said it would arrive at 9pm, so we thought of starting from Shirdi at 7pm, so that we could catch up the train.
We called to book a taxi and told him to come and pick us by 7pm at the hotel, but he said that there was only one taxi left and also he would only come at 6p.m and not at 7p.m as he had some another appointment. As we were left with no option we said okay and started at 6:20p.m. When we were half way through we got a call stating that the train had arrived at the station but we had 25km to cover. The driver drove his best but there was a railway gate along the way and it had got down. We had to wait for 10 minutes there. We were praying Baba to please make us catch the train. After sometime the gate was up and there were 7 k.m to be covered and again the another railway gate was down. We kept on chanting Baba's name, but inside we were not sure that we would catch that train. The driver took up the other way and drove us fast. We reached the station and were in really hurry as we had got so much of luggage. The train was still there, we boarded the train and in 2 minutes the train started. All the other passengers were shocked as how we were aware of 8 hours late train, it seemed that they all waited from morning 11a.m to 7:30p.m at railway station for the train, and boarded the train at 7:30pm but it only started after we boarded the train.
We travelled upto Vijayawada and from there we had to take another train to our place. We had not booked any tickets as the train timing was uncertain. We got down there and came to know that there was another train on the next platform. My dad ran to get the tickets as there were only 20 minutes left for the train to get departed but we came to know that we could not take general tickets for that train as that train was only for reserved people. But somehow we took ticket for express train and left everything to Baba, rushed into the train and boarded it. The ticket collector came and we showed our general tickets to him (not reserved). He said it was okay and there was no problem and also gave us reserved seats to sit without any extra charge. See what Baba does, if we leave everything to Him. He is the best planner. Baba plans the best. He takes care of His kids more than a mother. Thank You so much Baba for everything. Love You Baba.
My experience is as follows : Since 2 weeks my husband was facing headache mainly on back right side of head. Daily as he woke up in morning, he would complain of slight headache and at work he would feel more pain. We really got afraid as it was since 2 weeks and was not curing. For me Sai was my only doctor to whom I would go if I or any of my family members face any health or other problems. I prayed to Baba to please cure my husband's headache and started giving Him Udi (Baba's medicine) in water and applied some on the area where it was paining. I would like to mention this that my husband doesn’t believe in God but whenever I will ask him to take Baba's Udi he will never refuse.
After 2 days also it didn't cure then I cried in front of Baba and prayed to please cure my husband before Thursday, then I would visit His temple and offer one coconut to Him. As you all know Baba will always be there to rescue us whenever we are in difficult situation. Thursday came and before visiting temple I asked my husband about his headache, he told that he was feeling better then and not much headache now. I was so happy to hear this and as promised to Baba I offered Him coconut and also I promised Him that I will share my experience here which I am doing now. Thank You Baba for being there with me always. I need You in each and every step of my life. As You know Baba I am waiting for some important news and I have high hopes that this month I will receive some good news so please Baba help us and be with us in this process. Om Sairam.
