Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
My in-Laws were here for a visit period of 6 months. As per my Mother-in Law’s nature she started making changes in our home temple and moved Baba’s pictures on small table beside our temple. She also started forcing my husband to only worship Lord Ganesha. I have no issues if they worship other Gods but removing Baba’s Pictures from temple was absolutely unnecessary. Her behaviour was very childish and immature but I kept quite as I knew she will pick up a fight on this issue. Soon my husband’s behaviour changed completely. He became more aggressive and arrogant. He started telling me he will only worship Ganpati and started showing less interest in accompanying me to Baba’s temple. My sister-in law brought Baba’s idol from Shirdi and he refused to take it saying I do not have any space in my temple. Though I accepted the idol and placed it in my temple and I worship it. He also refused to provide volunteering services when temple was looking for a volunteer who could do evening Aarti once a week. I was silently observing everything and it was killing me from inside. Very soon his downfall began. He used to work as a senior claims officer for a travel insurance company and was about to be promoted as team leader as promised by his general manager. But after he returned to work from two weeks of annual leave he was shocked to learn that he was sidelined due to office politics and wasn’t given the recognition he deserved. He was back stabbed by his colleague while he was away. He was extremely saddened and upset.
Meanwhile he got job offer from another company and he hastily accepted it. He fell in a bigger trouble. His interview was taken by operations manager but his immediate boss was on leave at that time. He was offered senior role with good salary package and was also promised his own team in couple of months. When he joined the new company his immediate boss showed dislike towards him from day 1 as she wanted to promote one of her relative but my husband was hired instead. She made his life hell. She was on fault finding mission. She would keep complaining about my husband to operations manager every now and then. She would falsely accuse him for mistakes and was always rude to him. He used to work extra hours, lost his peace of mind, sleep and health. It was a very traumatic period for both of us. I started praying to Baba but there was no relief for us. Finally he resigned and was looking for another opportunity. He attended many interviews but nothing was getting materialized. He sat home without Job for month and a half. Although I am working full time we were worried about house repayments as our expenses became more than income. He was depressed and dejected and he started to lose confidence. I casually told him if he could start reading Sai Satcharitra for peace of mind as I didn’t wanted to force anything upon him. He did Parayan for 1 week and started to gain confidence again. He apologized to Baba wholeheartedly and asked for His forgiveness. Still things were not looking positive for us.
On the auspicious day of Guru Purnima he decided to go to Baba’s temple by walking from our home which is about 11 Kilometres and ask for His forgiveness and bless him with a job. As Australian roads are very hilly and not straight like Indian roads I was really worried about his journey. But he experienced Baba’s Leela during his Journey and was completely awestruck. After walking about 5 Km from home my husband was very tired and he stopped at a signal. He just said in his mind “Baba I am really tired. I don’t know how I will reach your temple” Just then a black Mercedes Benz passed by him and he caught a glance at car’s number plate which had “SAI “written on it. He got very happy as he thought Baba is with him. He said he didn’t realize how he walked another 6 KM in just 45 minutes and reached the temple. When he went inside the Temple all the volunteers were busy in preparation of evening function. He was very thirsty but was hesitant to ask for glass of water. My sister in law was going to drop him home. She briefly spoke with one of the volunteers that my brother came walking today and she will drop him home and will come back to temple. While my husband took Baba’s blessings and was about to walk out of the temple that volunteer lady came to my husband and said “You came walking from so far. You should at least have a glass of water and Prasad before you leave” My husband was overjoyed to hear that.
After drinking water and taking Prasad he bowed to Baba and again started walking out of the temple. Again one of the lady volunteers called him and asked him if he could lift Baba’s Palki and put it on the table. Yes he was the first person to lift Baba’s Palki on day of Gurupurnima. How merciful is our lord Sai? Not only Baba granted him forgiveness but also blessed him with Government job the very following week. When my husband came home he was very emotional and he told me he is not sure why he asked Baba to give him Government job. And the very following week he got call from recruitment agency offering him long term contract in a very reputed Government department. Amazing are His Leela’s and amazing are His ways to teach us important lessons of life. My husband has now become adherent devotee of Baba and has vowed to never leave His Holy Feet. May Sai Baba bless all of us. Om Sai Ram.
In that mean time I had misplaced my purse. I had kept my Mobile, money, and valuable things in my purse. I realized that my purse was missing during the time when I completed all my work and was about to leave the college at evening. I was really tensed as my purse had all the valuable things in it. I started searching in all those classrooms, labs and places like college canteen, cafe coffee day etc where I had been from morning. My friend started calling to my mobile with the hope that if any one receives the call we might get the trace of the purse. But none had received it and the mobile was just ringing in some place and I had no idea in which place I had misplaced it. I was just chanting Baba’s Name. One thing I knew is, my purse was with me as to have the lunch we have been to canteen and I had paid the money taking out from my purse. When I had went and enquired the canteen people they replied that they did not see any such purse more over there are many people who visit canteen and hence they have no idea who might have taken it. Now I was actually tensed and thought I have lost my mobile, purse etc as I had searched in all those places where i had went. But deep inside my heart I had full faith in Baba as we all know "When Baba is here, Why to fear". My friend she continuously tried calling my mobile but the call was just ringing none had received it. Chanting Baba's Name was continuous on my lips as Baba and Baba's Name was the only ray of hope.
Suddenly my friend came running to me saying 'Neha there is a call on my mobile from your number, May be someone have got your mobile', these are the words which brought a hope in me. It was a call from a student and when I had received it I came to know that my purse, mobile etc things was found it in a lab. Immediately I rushed to the lab and took my things and thanked baba who gave my belongings back through that student. Just imagine if that student had not called to my friend's mobile I would have lost my things because I cannot be repeatedly going to college in search of my things as I am not a student there and moreover it was evening time as college would have been closed very shortly. It is all our Baba who showed His wonderful Leela, His presence, and great power of chanting His Name. Many, many thanks Baba and thank You word also is not enough for Your love towards us. It was a blissful situation when I got all my things back with Your grace. Thank You for Your shower of blessings. I had promised Baba that I would share my experience on Thursday once I found my things back (but actually it’s not good promising baba and asking for help, sorry for that Baba). I really forgot to post this. But how could our Baba forgets it. Baba showed His unique Leela today (Thursday 7th September 2017, which is also another miracle) and reminded me of my promise. Sorry for posting it little late Baba.
There is another miracle a couple of years back how I had got my lost Scientific calculator which is really wonderful miracle. I will be sharing that very soon. One small miracle of Udi which I wish to share is, we had a basic set mobile of Nokia. It is a extra and a emergency mobile in our home just as a landline phone which is not carried and kept always in the home. During august 23rd suddenly the mobile gave some problem and display was not working at all. We tried it switching it on and off but in vain. As its very old mobile of the year 2005, there are very rare shops who could repair it. None of them in my family had the hope that mobile would start working as its very old set. But I had that hope. Next day Thursday I had applied Udi to it and read Udi mantra with faith that Baba would repair it. By afternoon the mobile started working normally. This is our Baba's Udi power. I was very happy, not happy for that the basic set mobile started working but happy for that I had experienced that bliss of Baba. Seriously it our lovely Baba who takes care of our small to small needs. Love You a lot Sai Maa. I am blessed to be a part of this big family created by Hetal di and happy to be a part of 100th year grand fest of Baba's Mahasamadhi i.e. the grand fest of Mahaparayan. Baba forgive me if I have done any mistakes knowingly or unknowingly. I have surrendered completely to You at Your Lotus Feet Maa. May Baba bless all. Om Sai Ram.
Many days I used to cry before going to the office, and on top of that it was a long commute. I have to start by 6:30 AM to reach office on time. But I was graceful to God that at least I have a job. However, the problems started to aggravate once she was back from her medical leave. From the year 2017 Feb, onwards she started yelling and humiliating me in front of others too. That time I was taking classes for my master's program as well as working full time. So, I was going through tremendous stress and anxiety issues. Finally, I decided to look for a job change in April 2017. I updated my resume in all the online job portals. I got many calls from the recruiters, but nothing was materializing to an interview. Finally, I got an in-person interview request in last week of April. I was praying whole heartedly to Baba to get that job because the company was located so close to my husband’s office. So, I started dreaming about if I get the job, we can rent an apartment nearby, so it will be very less commute for both of us because I was so tired of my long commute.
Finally, the day of the interview came, and I reached there on time, and I did well in the first four rounds. And there was a written test in the fifth round. I felt like I did ok on the test. I was praying and waiting for the results. But Baba has some other plans for me. I got the call from the recruiter that I got rejected even though I cleared all four rounds; but I did clear the written test. I felt heart broken and started crying because at the other end the problems at my office are getting worse. I was hoping that by getting this job, I can get out of that place. Again, I started applying; I got a rejection from two more jobs in May. By the way, I also wanted to mention that, I completed Saptah Parayan three times and was continuously doing 9 Guruvar Vrat. I begged to Baba, please don’t get me any interviews if that job is not meant for me. After my job haunting for three months. I got an in-person interview from a prestigious institution. I was not interested in the position considering the long commute. I got my telephonic round on a Thursday and the second round too on a Thursday. I got the call next day that I got selected. Still I was in a dilemma that whether to accept the opening or not.
Meanwhile, I tried hard to get job nearby location, but nothing worked out. But I was happy that I could resign from the Job and it will end all torture. However, back in mind, the thoughts about long commute was a haunting me. Finally, thinking this is the job Baba want me to do, I accepted the opportunity. I got this opportunity only because of the blessings of Baba. So, I wholeheartedly pray to Baba to get a nice job in a good organization with less commute. Also, I could do well in my current job. In my previous job too, I used to get so tired once I reach home, so I couldn’t spend time with my daughter or help her in her studies and it started affecting her grades. Only Baba knows what is good and bad for His devotees. Om Sai Ram.
Thursday morning when coming from Budigere Baba temple, i got some fruits and after coming from temple, i started preparing, boiled milk also but i didn't find custard powder. I searched everywhere but i didn't find anywhere till now. Then i thought however it comes i do cake only and started preparing and i took out electric beater and power was gone. I thought Baba wanted me to beat the batter with hands only and i was beating batter even after beating powder didn't come it was 12 p.m. and i didn't start my Nav Guruvar Pooja yet and somehow i was so stubborn that i will make it anyway (Actually Baba was pushing me to do it, it is He who is giving ideas to do it). I thought i would make it in cooker asked another friend who few days back said i made cake in cooker. She said to keep brick and on top cake tray. Before pouring batter in tray, i checked if the tray is fitting in my cooker (As it is over tray) but it was not fitting. I again asked my friend whether i can keep steel one, she said yes, I was little relieved then I asked my Gardener to get brick he brought after few minutes. But that was also not fitting in my cooker. Again Baba tested me, I asked Him "What is this Baba? Somehow i was not worried much as i felt some power is influencing me.
Then i took out my idly vessel and both brick and tray were fitting in it. My friend (who taught me how to prepare cake in cooker) said few days before that when she was doing some big Pooja someone told me to sprinkle Udi water on Pooja items. So that the Pooja will be a big success and it happened to me successfully. So even i too sprinkled Udi water saying Baba that my Prasad should happen so nicely. Then i kept batter in that idly vessel and i started my Pooja preparation after sprinkling Udi water and it came out so tasty. Why Baba wanted me to make cake only because i thought of making it only. I felt like, Baba like a kid He was after me and got the sweet (Prasad-cake). Small wish but He fulfilled. That is my Baba, Om Sai Sri Sai Jaya Jaya Sai.
In the evening, I went to Sai Temple, with my cousin brother, we both were searching for dogs to feed them, I did not find any, I attended evening Aarti of Baba, It started raining heavily, I was standing outside and praying God, I don’t know anything, help me feed a dog, I am sorry I delayed making rotis, but forgive me. Immediately temple Pujari called me inside near Baba (there were many people, he called only me), he gave me again Baba’s Ladoo, I thanked Baba. I stepped out of temple, still it was drizzling, me and my cousin started heading home, I was unable to trace any dog, may be it was because of the rains. It was three minutes to reach my home, I prayed Baba to help me find a dog, if You have accepted me as Your devotee, If I did not do any mistakes, please, help me. Guess what, right in front of my home, there were three dogs (there are no dogs near my home, and I have never seen them before), it looked like they were waiting for me. Me and my cousin were shocked in happiness. I fed rotis to them. I thanked Baba million times. His Leelas are so beautiful. Please bless all Your children Deva. Om Sai Ram.
