Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
I grew up listening to my parents that I was always a Baba’s child. I came in my mom’s life after she read Sai Satcharitra given by my dad’s sister in a week’s time. Being Baba’s children, we all know that Baba’s children are blessed in a different manner. They are made to go through lot of hardships and struggle, just to make the belief in Sai go stronger and stronger. I have been always like this, like I am today, no expectations from life, no grudges in life and taking life as it comes to me. Being the only child of ailing and old parents made me responsible, sensitive and tolerant. When other children played in the park, I did household chore at home. When children slept early or in afternoon, I studied. Don’t even remember when I started worshiping Him but according to my mom I was just 3 or 4 years old. My innate feeling then and today are the same- Be happy in all situations, stay positive and keep faith. Having said that my life has not been easy but my faith in Him says all will be well and all will fall in place.
At the age of 8, I had a dream that I was in Shirdi with Baba and we were all walking together; me, Baba and all His followers, about whom I read in Sai Satcharitra. There was a small pond there and Baba told me, you have been my daughter, my devotee since so many years and lives and will always be. Manisha did my SRT and told me that infact I was with Baba for a long time and used to cook for Him. His favourite was baigan bharta and baigan pakodas and I cooked them well. No wonder cooking is my stress buster still. She visualized me in purple sari, with Maharashtrian nose pin, red bindi and a bun with jasmine flowers. I use to feed Baba and wash His feet, massage His legs and was His favourite.
The same year my mom was diagnosed with Rheumatid arthiritis and father with major heart disease. We couldn’t afford a maid; therefore I had to take care of my studies, household chores and parents. When I analyse it now, I realize that Baba told me, “I am there for you always but that doesn’t mean that you will not face any hardships but I will not let you face it alone”. It was His blessings that I was very different from other children. Amidst lot of struggles, financial crisis I grew up and never demanded anything from my parents thinking how will they feel if they were unable to fulfil my wishes. My Papa a Sai devotee Himself always told me –look at the people who are less fortunate than you rather than looking and comparing with people who have lots of money. Always aspire to be a person with large heart and help others at whatever cost. Keep smiling in all situations.
28th September, 2016 Day 4. So I grew up facing hardships and keeping in mind that Baba is with me. One thing was very sure and pre dominant that whenever I requested Baba for anything for others, it was granted in no time and whenever for me the wait was endless. The lesson here I learnt was to live for others, help others. Helping others is the biggest form of prayer. I have been to many temples of Baba but till date, if I see Baba’s face for a long time, I have a feeling that can’t be described and tears keep falling with devotion. I grew up reading Sai Satcharitra and till date, the adhyaya that speaks of Baba’s Mahasamadhi still makes me weep. I feel that I was very much part of that Mahasamadhi. I have been praying this to Baba from a very long time that please take me with Him on the same day when He took Mahasamadhi. I was brought up in a certain way where I saw my parents doing regular pooja and reading scriptures and many of us do that. What surprised me the most that mostly the people around me who were doing lot of pooja paath were the ones who were very unhappy and ungrateful towards the Almighty. There was no sense of gratitude towards the life and to be honest till couple of years back, I guess I too was the same. In past couple of years, I met few people who were spiritual and happy in life. And one such mentor, friend and guide is Manisha.
Manisha is a healer and Baba’s blessed child like me. We both laugh that out of us who is more blessed. She has played a major role getting me out of my fears and insecurities. She was the one who told me that I had always been the giver but it was ok to receive too. She was the one who guided me that meditation can happen anytime, you can feel close to Almighty without reading scriptures. Of course they give you peace at times. While doing my soul quality, she told me that I am very organised and structured and I need to break that in meditation and with Baba. Baba spoke to me, guided me what to do and what not according to His will for almost 6 months. I had a pattern to read scripture – I started with Sai Chalisa, Sai Stavan manjari, Sai Satcharitra, Sai Gyaeshwari and Hanuman Chalisa.
One day, I dreamt of flying over Vaishno Devi and Ma guided me so I stared with Durga Chalisa. In one of my meditation on Sunday I saw lord Shiva with His light and energy and I started with Shiva Chalisa. I regularly read all the scriptures, meditated regularly but was very stuck with my rituals. That’s what Manisha also explained so many times. Once I dreamt of flying on my own above Vaishno devi and Ma messaged me to remember her too. Once dreamt of Vishnu/Lakshmi and Sheshnaag, according to Babli ji that was the indication of preserver and three lokas and I started reading Bhagwad Gita. My rituals were broken by my Sai Baba on His own. Due to my work I go to Goa every month and few months back, I forgot to carry them along. I was disturbed and very perturbed. Then I heard Baba saying in my ears- that’s its ok. While listening to Baba’s arti, I looked for Hanuman Chalisa and Durga Kawach. I started listening to it regularly. But still I was confused. I went to Manisha and she told me that Baba wanted to me to break the rituals. Remembering Almighty does not require rituals. Manisha always feels Baba is present with me. According to her I am very fortunate that Baba is always by my side.
Om Sairam, Baba please help me to narrate Your experience. For a very long time I was looking for a job, and was unable to find a job. I had applied to numerous places and wasn't getting any call back. Sometimes some places called me for an interview but after that they wouldn't call me back. This happened many times and every time I would feel unhappy. I used to think where would Baba give me a job? I was applying to jobs that matched my education or even jobs that required only basic education. I was looking for a decent office job near to my home in my field of education and experience. Regardless of applying to so many companies, I couldn't find a job. I had even contacted many job agencies and the recruiters liked my resume and asked me to come in for a basic interview. I would go to these interviews and feel more frustrated since they wouldn't have a job for me. But even after months of searching they couldn't help me. I was also applying through job boards in hopes to find a job soon.
After many months of searching for a job, I saw an online posting with one of the job agencies that I had initially contacted. The woman at the agency called me to again conduct a basic interview. I wasn't sure if she would be able to help me to get a job, but I had no choice and so I went for the interview. As soon as she started the interview she pointed the problems with my resume and then the reasons why my resume may be overlooked at by employers. She had couple of positions for me and asked me to fix my resume and email it to her. I immediately went home and fixed my resume hoping that she would help in getting a job very soon. I sent her my new resume only to find out that the jobs she had was not available. I was getting very frustrated and kept wondering how Baba will get me a job. But every time Baba would assure me that He is with me and helping me.
I started even applying to more job boards and more positions hoping that my improved resume would help me get a better job. Finally, a company I had applied to on a job board site contacted me with hours of applying online. The interview was scheduled for the next day, which was Baba's day - Thursday. I live in the USA and before going for the interview I researched about the company on their website. As I was researching more about the company I found out that the owners were Indian. I was not sure how everything would be with the interview and the job. Initial phone interview was done by an American woman. On the day of the interview I prayed to Baba, took my Parent's blessings and went for the interview.
When I entered the office, I was greeted by the American woman and she asked me to fill out the job application. She asked me to sit at a desk. As soon as I sat down and was about to fill the application, I lifted my head to see a beautiful calendar photo of Panchamukhi Hanumanji in front of me on the desk. I am also a Hanumanji’s devotee and believe that Baba and Hanumanji are one. I was amazed and felt that Baba had brought me to the right place. I filled out the application and had the interview. And before leaving the office I was offered the job with more than expected salary. It's been few days since I have started working and my salary has been increased due to Baba's grace. The best part is that the job is very close to my house and near to Baba's mandir. Baba has helped me a lot by giving me a job near to my home and also a pay that I didn't expect. During my job search I kept wondering where would I get a job? Baba had great plans for me and Baba got me my current job. This job is only possible because of Baba's grace and blessings.
Baba, please help me to do well in this job and work properly. Dear Sai devotees thank you for reading my experience and I hope it gives assurance to devotees that Baba is always with us helping us, guiding us, and guarding us. Baba, please forgive me for all my mistakes and sins. Baba I need Your help with my marriage, please work everything out and unite us both with each other with our families’ approval. Please get us married to each other. Please Baba we truly need Your help. Baba, please bless us all with health, happiness and long life. Om Sai Ram.
2013-2016 were the most difficult years in my life. It was hell to me. There was misunderstanding between me and my husband. My so called friend (married with one son) was compromising between us, but my bad luck she got attracted towards my hubby and my husband also in the mean time. Everything took ugly turn when her husband came to know that. They vacated their own flat and went to another area. But still they were continuing the relationship and this was unknown to me. My husband told that he had to go for training in Mysore for three months and took all his dresses and went which was a lie. She also came out of her house applied for mutual divorce from her husband. Everything was unknown to me and there was no phone call between me and my hubby. He blocked my number.
But Sai Appa was slowly showing everything to me. One of my neighbour saw my hubby and that girl together, informed me and her husband also. But she called me and was telling they were just friends, not to create any problem between her and her hubby. I was totally alone for six months without anybody and it was the toughest period of my life. During that period I was down with fever and nobody was there to take care of me and I was managing everything alone. But Sai Appa stood like rock to me and taking care of me and giving me patience and courage.
Suddenly, one day my hubby came back to our home with all his dresses. It was like a shock to me. And the preceding events Sai Appa showed me, how my hubby realised that lady's nature and his mistake. It took three years. Still its paining for me. My hubby realised his mistake. I don’t have enough words to express my pain and battle I went through. Its just 5%, I would have said it more 100%. But Sai Appa was with me at that time. For the mistake he did in his life Sai Appa gave him very big punishment of taking away his job from him for past seven months and problems in his career. I just stood by my hubby both emotionally and financially praying Sai Appa for his job. Now he got a very good job. Hetal ji still the pain is there. But we are at peace and contentment with love of Sai Appa. Sai Appa made me realise that nothing is permanent in this world.
This miracle goes like this. I fought with my boyfriend three months back. It started as a small fight and became very big. In between these three months we used to make up and we would fight again. So as this was going on exactly fifteen days ago he said that he would call me if he wanted me again in his life. So I left everything at Baba's lotus feet and was waiting for his call.
I had immense faith that Sairam would make him call me and put him in my life again. In mean time my birthday was also coming closer. So as this is the first birthday after Sairam coming into my life. I asked Him to gift my boyfriend to me as my birthday gift from His side. I also started Sai divya pooja day before yesterday. One day in my office I said Baba that if I get yellow flowers today I shall take it as a promise from Your side that he would talk to me. And the house keeper who works in our office brought yellow flowers to Sairam and gave it to me to put it to Sairam’s photo that I have in my office. And yes wonder of wonders I saw my boyfriend texted me today saying that he got a new job for which I did Sai Nav Guruvar Vrat. I asked him to call me. Initially he was hesitating to call but called and I spoke though he was not convinced completely. I completely have faith in Sairam that He will surely solve this problem hundred percent as He promised me and will make him talk to me properly. This is only our Sai Baba's miracle to make him text me exactly the day before my birthday. Sairam is my first wisher this year. And I completely believe that this year is going to be a great year ahead. Also I request all the devotees to pray for me to have my birthday gift complete with Sairam's blessing. I request all the devotees of Baba to have faith and patience on Baba and you will see your dreams coming true. Om Sairam.
After completing graduation, I began to take efforts for govt job. Year by year the stress and pressure from parents kept increasing. I was in deep tension and for a long time I struggled and suffered from intense depression. Even after trying a lot I couldn't pass two exams and it kept on going for 4 years. Things suddenly turned amazing into my life when I received Sai’s blessings.
It happened when one day my roommate took me to a Sai temple. In fact, it was the first time I was in Sai temple. After darshan, I came home. I started to feel intense bhakti for Sai from that day and so I started doing Thursday fast and going Sai temple every Thursday. Along with it, I regularly did Sai pooja at my room and always prayed for some good change. Things started becoming easy for me and Sai helped me come out from many problem whether it was about study, job, parent’s pressure etc. In my third attempt, I passed exam and got a good govt. job. When I saw results, I burst into happiness and informed my parents. It was amazing to share this wonderful time with people I loved. I thanked Sai with all my heart. Trust me, if you believe Sai, If you love Him, He will always stand aside and will take away all your problems and open new ways for success. Jai Hanumanji, Jai Sairam.
Blessings of Baba: since few days, I was suffering from body pains. Yesterday before sleeping I prayed Baba from the bottom of my heart to subside my pains when I wake up in the morning. Next day morning I did not have any body pains and was so happy. Baba also cured my gum problems. My gums were bleeding for so many days and I sincerely with faith applied Udi for few days. Bleeding stopped after few days. If we completely surrender to Baba with Shraddha and Saburi, anything is possible. Baba, bless my family and all your devotees with good health and we always surrender at Your lotus feet.
