Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
In every situation, in my everyday life, I call out to Baba. So really writing about a few experiences seems unnatural since everything is Baba's gift. if I am getting late for work, if the children need something or are faced with a problem, if a device or appliance is not working, if my parents are faced with health issues, always, everywhere, every time, my Baba responds and helps in inscrutable ways. Thank You Sai for allowing me to be a minuscule devotee of Yours. Last month, on June 8th, a Thursday, my younger son took his driving test for a second time and passed it to get his driving license. Here, in this city, public transportation is so good that most people do not drive or even own cars. Both my sons did not need to drive in the city, so getting a license was quite a big deal for them. Sai blessed both of them with licenses last month. Thank You Sai. It would have been terrible if one of the boys got his license and the other did not.
On June 10th of this year, both my sons travelled to Hyderabad, India to be with my mother for her birthday. My husband and I also followed them. Baba saw that there were no hurdles and all of us made it safely and in time. We were able to do this after several years, as the boys have started working now and don't have the time. My older son was able to stay only for six days. On the way back, my husband dropped my son at Hyderabad airport and had just entered the gate of our house when my son called to tell us that his passport that had minor water damage on one page was deemed by an immigration officer as being unfit for travel. He had already been issued boarding passes. He was detained at the airport and was told to get a new passport. The immigration officer soon left the airport. We were shocked. Get a new passport now? My son is a banker and taking time off is difficult. My son was not even allowed to leave the airport, he was told that security had to escort him out. He was scared and this situation was so unexpected and something that none of us had faced ever before. My husband and I rushed to the airport and when security was available my son was escorted out. This was the most disturbing moment in our lives and so scary too. I kept praying to Baba to let him out of the airport first and then we'll deal with the situation.
My parents spoke to their Guru ji and quickly an entire network was set in motion to deal with an extremely unfair situation. My son travels to Europe very often and with the same passport. Nowhere has he faced a similar situation. We were relieved to take him home and nothing could be done that night. My husband had worked in the External Affairs Ministry and he called some colleagues and took their advice. My son filled the tatkal passport form that night and the next day he went with my husband to the passport office. It was a true miracle that with Baba's grace and blessings, my son was issued a new passport that very day and he left the country that night. In fact, we were advised to file a suit against the officer for harassment, which we haven't done yet. My son took the oath the following week after his return to become an American citizen without a hitch. Baba helps in incredible ways and through so many people to deal with problems in our life. Trust Baba and entrust every situation to Him. Sai Ram. Baba, please stay with my two sons and guide them to walk on paths illumined by You. Be with us and all humanity always. Sai Ram.
My daughter is doing her professional course. She is in her final year of medicine, and she got series of exams to clear before the main exam. She failed few of her exams despite efforts. She gets only two chances to clear the exam. She cleared all except one. That one particular exam she failed second time as well. Now, she is in trouble and has two options: one repeats the three-week course and gives exam or appeal for the waiver of course and request for one chance to give the exam. She decided to appeal and pray Baba for help. Before even sending the request, she spoke to one of the professors who is also in appeal's committee, and a guidance counsellor asking them to give her one final chance to write an exam without repeating the course. Both of them spoke very rude demoralising her and told her that she needs to repeat and will fail the other exam which she is scheduled to write in two weeks. Hearing all this conversation from those two professors, she was devastated and cried for 2-3 days. It was a significant investment of time and money thus far. I told her to keep faith in Baba and submit the appeal. I also told her that I would do Sai Divya Pooja for her and started doing from the following Thursday. (I came to know about Sai Divya Pooja from this website. One of the devotees has mentioned in their experience).
After three weeks, the appeals decision is out. With Baba's blessing, my daughter got the appeal result as per her wish. Wishes come true only with God’s blessings. This could only happen with Baba's intervention in the committee, because, as I said before, one of the committee members told her that he would see that she repeats the course. I promised Baba that if she gets a waiver for repeating the course, I will donate the xxx amount to Shirdi. I did not forget but was debating to go to Shirdi and donate. Meanwhile, she got another small issue which is connected with the appeal. And the miracle happened today. My daughter is supposed to start her new rotation today, and she was surprised when she went to the hospital to start paper work. They did not let her complete the paperwork and said her rotation is on hold due to one of the appeals requirement (The requirement wasn't clear enough). If they don't let her do this rotation, she will lose three weeks of time. She messaged her dean and spoke to the coordinator and informed to me. She needs to get the decision same day to complete the paperwork and start rotation. Then I told her to keep faith in Baba and keep chanting His name until you get the decision. Meanwhile. I decided to donate the amount I promised. I also asked a question in Q & A site, and I got a response to chant Rama and remember Sai Baba. I started chanting Rama and was working on online donation. While I was in the middle of filling online details to donate, my daughter texted me that she got approval to do rotations. It is all Baba's blessings. Without Him, we cannot achieve anything. Please remember Sai always and chant His Name always. Sachidanand Samartha Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai. Sai Ram Sai Ram Sai Ram.
It has been only 2 months plus and we go to the nearby Hindu Temple every Thursday after performing Dhoop Aarti at home. To our utter surprise, they were decorating a beautiful large portrait of Sai Baba. They were actually nearing completion. I got so excited on seeing Sai at our local temple. Not only that, we had a blissful Anandmayi Darshan and just minutes after they put a nice silk Saree and covered Sai's portrait in preparation for the Guru Purnima that was just 2 days away. Really, think about the timing. How merciful Sai is and the timing could not have been better. Had we been even a few more minutes late, we would have missed. I bow to Sai for this kind Leela.
One more experience is, On Guru Poornima day they had special Madhayana Aarti and they announced the proposed Sai shrine in the temple. It was so nice. We met a friend there at the temple who even came to our home for lunch. At that time, we were talking about Pittsburgh Sai temple and offered to take us there. Pittsburgh Sai temple is something we have been wanting to go for a long time and somehow didn't. With His grace only we went there on Guru Poornima day and had a blissful Darshan. The time we spent there is simply not explainable and furthermore we got Udi also the same day. We returned home safe and also my wife got some opportunity to connect with like minded people for fine arts. Sai, please be with all animate and inanimate things in this world and beyond. Please be kind to all Your children and protect them always and keep us away from calamities. Sai Reham Nazar Karna Bacchon Ka Palan Karna Sri Sachidanand Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai. Om Sai Ram.
After all this, we decided to bring my parents to help us. For visitors, there should be at least 6 months gap between their travel to US and for my parents it is less than 3 months at the time of my delivery, that is why we did not book their travel. But i don’t have a choice now as i need help and booked tickets for their travel. I was continuously praying to Baba to help them clear immigration. Our mercy lord helped me again and they got 6 months stay. It’s really a miracle. There are several instances where people were sent back and for some only given 30 days stay. Last time my mom was asked to wait for almost 2 hours and questioned by immigration officer. This time due to Baba’s grace, they were given 6 month stay. Swami is always there to help us whether the problem is big/small/complex/simple. Thank You swami for all Your help. Please always be with all Your children and protect them. Sarvajana Sukhino Bhavantu. Samasta Loka Sukhino Bhavantu.
The next day morning I came to Office. By the blessing of Sri Sainath, I found an article on the use of Honey on diabetic foot ulcer (This was the unseen direction of Lord). I followed the method with holy ash (Vibhuti) which I brought from Sai Temple at Puri. Now I am cured by the blessing of Lord Sainath. Keep Faith and Everything Will Be Ok.
