Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
This was in the year 2004, I had failed my 12th examination in 2002 due to my involvement in college elections. As I had won the college elections too my focus from studies had deviated leading to a lot of loss of studies. I felt very guilty for not passing my exams and seeing my other friends studying and passing exams. Since I am not from a very effluent and financially strong family and background, I had to discontinue with my studies due to financial problems and my family advised me to not study further.
I lost my father when I was studying in 1st Grade, We are altogether 5 Brothers in the family and I am the youngest. I remember due to scarcity of money at times we even didn’t have enough food to feed ourselves daily, and at times we used to sleep empty stomach too. Such poor was our financial situation those days. Today by the grace of Sai, though we live in a small house our situation is far better as we have enough food to feed ourselves.
I used to always repent for losing on my studies and used to think how to fill the form for reappearing 12th as we didn’t have enough money for re admissions. While 2 years passed by and my friends completed their graduation and I was still in that situation. It felt worst every day to think of the same helplessness of not being able to study further, and my mind had become restless.
One day while I was watching Television alone at my neighbour’s house, I saw Sai Baba’s Aarti being played on one of the channels. I had heard about Sai Baba and His miracles before too, So when I saw Baba in the Television this time I started speaking in my mind to Him that “Baba, I really want to complete my studies but to due financial constraints, I don’t know if I should start earning money or should I reapply for admission and continue with my studies? Baba please guide me and show me the way as my time is getting wasted due to this”, I said “Baba if the flower on Your head drops then it means I should continue with my studies and if it doesn’t fall from Your head then it means I should start working and drop the idea of studying”. While I was speaking all this in my mind with Baba, Suddenly I saw the flower on Baba’s head dropped down, I was astonished with this Leela and automatically tears started rolling down from my eyes, I now understood that Baba had decided that I should study further and it made me feel so much better.
Then 2/3 Months passed by, suddenly one day I received a call from one of our far relatives from Chhattisgarh to help him in monitoring and inspecting the construction of his new house. I readily agreed to go and take up the work. I did the work and the house owner was very happy with my work and thanked me for the wonderful help and asked me “Tell me If there is anything that I can do for you”?
I expressed my interest to continue with my studies and he was very happy to hear that, He said “I’ll sponsor your studies and go and fill up the 12th class form”. He gave me money for the same. I went to Orissa and collected all the books and completed the formalities of readmission and returned back to Chhattisgarh.
I started studying again, now since the construction work of the house was yet not complete and would take time, the house owner offered me to stay there and continue work with studies and he would surely help me in securing admission for BA too. My Joy knew now bounds when I heard that. I used to work hard in the morning and prepare for exams by studying at night, and then I appeared for exams in Orissa and secured 2nd class. I stayed in Chhattisgarh for 4 years while completing my B.A.
After completion of my B.A(second class), I returned back to Orissa and then one day I got a call from one of the schools in Hyderabad through a known reference in my village. He offered me a job for a teacher in that private school. I left for Hyderabad next day itself, took up that job, stayed there for 4 years again and earned and saved good money. With that saved money I secured an admission for B. Ed (Bachelors of Education), completed the same in 2015.
Returned back now to Orissa again and working here now in a school named “Saraswati Sishu Mandir” as a main teacher. Now with the money I am earning I have also enrolled for IGNOU-MA.As now I always think and remember how Sai Baba showered His grace and blessings on me by dropping that flower from His head and thus motivating me, or else how can a 12th fail person like me can ever even imagine to become a school teacher and complete B. Ed and now appearing MA too. I have now passed the OTET(Orissa Teacher Eligibility Test). And I’m very sure that Baba will also help me secure a good Government Teacher job soon.
Sai has got me from there till here and the journey was all planned by Baba, He’ll surely hold my finger and take me to my destined dream job too.
Jai Shri Sai.
Close to a decade back, one of my friend in college told me about Shirdi Sai Baba and that was how I came to know about Him. We used to visit the temple every Thursday and pray to Him. After then, somehow wherever I moved to a new place (different cities) I would definitely come across His temple which would be at a walkable distance from my residence and it became a habit of visiting His temple every Thursday.
When I started working after my post graduation one of my colleague was a staunch Sai’s devotee. He told me about the Sai vrat pooja. Years passed, I got married and relocated to US with my husband. Baba made me to introduce Him to my husband. Of course, I cannot say I introduced Sai to him. I was just an instrument in the action. I became astonished how my husband became a staunch devotee in a short span of time. My husband is a very logical person and it takes lot of logical talk to convince him. As we can see, its all part of Sai’s leela. There are lot of experiences in my life where I always felt Baba’s love and care for me. There is not even a single situation where He failed me. Even if it was sometimes, later I realized why He had done that.
I was preparing for my graduate program. As soon as I got married was giving out exams for getting an admission into Universities nearby my place. Though, I had good scores I didn’t get the program I intended and was rejected by most of the Universities. Since, there weren’t any reasons specified why I was rejected and was simply wondering what would have went wrong. Almost a year passed, I didn’t have a single admission and I started getting pressure from my husband’s family to step on to next stage of life. I was shattered because I was working In India for couple of years and only because I got married and moved to US I had to quit my job and step out of my good career as simple as that. I was praying Baba so hardly that I used to literally cry loudly in front of Him.
I didn’t know about Sai Satcharitra book till then. One of my neighbour, she introduced me to her friend who did her master’s in some other University which was like 100 miles away from my place. She encouraged me to apply to the University. With least hope I did, after a long wait I got my admission offer with my intended program. I had to leave my husband and stay in a place near the University and continued my education. Then later, I came to know about Sai Satcharitra book. I would say it was definitely a karpaga vriksha! Throughout the period of doing my master’s I had lot of problems/incidents popping up which always made me to struggle and gasp for freedom. But Baba was and is always near me.
Now, I would say He is the closest relation I can have in this world. Even when my closest relations failed to understand me Baba never failed to listen. I always used to cherish the stories from the Sai Satcharitra. For instance, when I go to sleep I use to think about how Baba, pandit Mahalsapthy and Shyama used to sleep by keeping their feet together and make some chit-chat. Baba, always made me believe that even the most impossible would be possible when you believe in Him. Let a million say its not possible He will make it for you if you have strong faith in Him. Baba loves us more when we try to lead our life by His teachings. For instance, I am trying to follow one of His principles, “You should not talk ill of your friends or anyone behind their backs”. When He gives us what we want we should be in His good books by following His principles. There are lot of true saints but He is the most kind Baba I have known so far. The two magic wands He left behind Him is Udi and Sai Satcharitra. You can always believe in Him and make a trust fall you always land in His loveable arms. Don’t ever fear or doubt Him. He is always there for you. It is us who fail to remember Him at times but He never forgets us. Lead my way Baba now and ever! Om Sri Satchitanadha Satguru Sainath Mahraj ki Jai!
Experience 1: When I posted my fist experience in this blog I was doing my Sai divya pooja for my job and life purpose. I was done with my divya pooja but didn’t get any job, so I left that divya pooja coin with cloth in my pooja room. Actually I decided to put in hundi when I get the job. So recently I got job but I was in different place but I had carried my coin to put in hundi. So I couldn't ask my relatives to take me to temple. But atlast one Thursday Baba pulled me to temple, even though it was a thunderstorm and raining. I am very happy and I asked Baba whether I could put my coin cloth now in that hundi or not because here hundis were not bigger to keep that coin cloth. He gave me a message to take it with me. So I went to temple, I had my darshan and I tried for 20 minutes to push that coin into hundi as it was very narrow. Immediately one Sai devotee said me that I could ask the people in the counter to open that hundi and keep that coin. As he suggested I went to those people and was asking one devotee who was standing there at the counter. Immediately other Sai ma child asked me to follow and take me to Sai Darbar where everyone were reading Sai Satcharithra. He showed me Baba’s padukas and told me to keep it near Baba’s feet. I was really overwhelmed and Baba knows everything and He Himself pulled me to keep my pooja coin near His feet. I was really shocked for couple of minutes. May be it was a small experience but at that time temple was full of rush and no one can think there to help someone so it was a miracle for me.
Experience 2: Today I am leaving my current place in few days to join my new job. So I went to Baba’s temple as I have owed Baba 108 pradakshinas. In home I got ready and my sister told me to take pen and paper to count 108, and also said had I seen anything in temple to count 108 like rudrakshas or some malas? I said I didn’t know as I didn't ask them before and I was only counting with my hand everything. She said okay and I left to temple. I walked into our Sai temple, immediately when I went and stood in front of our Sai, the priest in the temple showed me a rudraksha mala and gave a sign to go ahead to do pradakshinas. So how could he know that I came to do 108 pradakshinas? I really got dumbstruck and saw our Sai’s face. He was glowing in a red dress today. I really didn’t get how he knew? Actually it was our Sai’s miracle, He showed me a sign that He would take care of everything I need at right time. I am really very happy today as Priest needed help in the temple, I did lot of chores in the temple. I washed all the pooja items and divya prasadam dishes and lot. Our Sai knows what He needs from devotees and He will take it and give it at perfect and right timings. We need to be with full of faith and patience. I am still waiting for other things to happen in my life. I have a strong belief that Sai will look after it and take care of everything. Om Sai Sree Sai Jaya Jaya Sai. Bolo Sree Sachitananda Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai.
I wanted to share my experience here, I am working in MNC past 4years and unfortunately one day I got a call from my manager. He asked me to resign from the job due to some personal reasons. Unexpected call and I felt bad as there was no option for me. They gave 10 days time. I was supposed to move once I complete 3 years but I had got new technology training and bond signed by me so waited for one more year. One week before call from my manager, I was asked from my teammate that, his friend was asking resume required resource in his company and unexpectedly I had forwarded within a day. Then I thought I have bond with my current company how do I give reason to my manager for resignation. Interview was scheduled and thought of not to perform well so that I will not be through it. One day before my Interview, I got a call from manager who asked to resign.
Then I prayed a lot to Baba I need job please help me in this situation. Inside me, my feeling was why this sudden interview scheduled for me when I had a bond with current company. Might be Baba planned for me, will I get through this? But I had fear inside that my fate was not good and anything can happen, we don’t know. Next day I attended the interview, got feedback positively. I was very happy. But offer was delayed everyday, so I prayed Baba and cried a lot in front of Baba’s photo and asked Baba question and answers. Baba said I will come in dream, next day you will receive offer letter. Chant Sai everything will go smooth. The day had come with Baba’s blessings as He promised in answers book, I got Baba in dream and next day received a call from HR to come to office to collect the offer letter.
Today is my second day in new company with good package more than expectation and for my experience its lot for me. Everything Baba did for me, Love You Baba. You are my everything, please bless me at every step of my life. Sorry to everyone who all are reading my experience. Kindly forgive me if any mistakes and also for big story which I have written. But many things missed because now only it looks very big. Very sorry to Sai devotees once again and please pray for me the situation should not repeat in future at any point of time in my career. Thanks a lot to all. Kind Regards, your Sai devotee.
I strongly prayed to Sai Baba and cried a lot. Daily I used to pray Sai Baba and write mantras for 108 times. I had pleaded my 3 prayers to Sai Baba. During my prayer a flower dropped from Baba photo. I was really shocked that Sai Baba was telling not to get more worried which I understood later within 3 days. I got the job in a standard organisation with best salary. One of my requests Baba ji fulfilled. Thank You Baba. I want to be Your child and always want to be in Your blessings. I hope my Lord never left me during my struggles. Please bless me.
My sister bought a new phone which cost 30k and I was using it for sometime. Later by accident the phone fell down and the screen broke. I was really upset as it was a new one and for sure my brother-in-law would be pissed off. I was praying to Sai to do some miracle and I would write the experience. Suddenly one of my friends suggested replacing it as it was online purchased. Later we called the customer care and told the incident and it was just two days old phone. The customer technician replaced it and we were really happy about this. I know this was completely a Sai miracle! Sai You are always my Saviour. Please be with me all the time and accept me in Your feet.
