Faith And Patience Are Important Virtues - Sai Devotee Deepu
Before one month, an experience of anonymous Sai sister was shared on this blog. Few comments, after reading the experience were received, wherein Sai sister Deepu ji found some similarities in their circumstances. In fact she has replied in reference to that earlier experience and i am sharing it with you all.

Deepu ji says: Dear Anonymous Sai Devotee,

I read your experiences and it was very heart touching. I felt really very attached to your experiences as I could relate myself to them little bit. Even me and my fiance had similar situations. We both stay in USA and even our marriage depends on our financial settlement. I dont know the meaning of your dreams but want to share some experiences we had in our life which can help you. I cannot really analyze your dreams but let me try to explain you our situations with Baba’s grace.

Me and my fiance, both did Masters and graduated in Dec 2008. We had a talk about our marriage with our families, both agreed but we decided to marry only after getting jobs. We tried so hard, we could not find any jobs as it was a period of recession. My fiance had strong faith in BABA, even I am a Sai Devotee from my childhood. But the only difference was my faith used to waver based on the situations. I used to blame Baba for my bad luck (umemployement) and the delay in the marriage. No matter how hard we tried we did not find any hope in getting jobs. I used to cry a lot, sit in front of Baba all the time, questioned him a lot. I almost went into depression. No signs of positive help from him. In the meanwhile we both did part-time jobs for survival. So many months passed, almost like 10 months passed. In these 10 months we hardly got any interview calls. Even our parents were unhappy, because not even one of us have job for survival after marriage. Even we could not ask them about our marriage as we know that everybody will laugh at us. But due to the blessings of Baba and unwavered faith of my fiance, finally he got a call for the interview. My fiance met a person at his part-time job and he explained all the situation to him. That person said, “Ok come to my place, I will take your interview and will give you a job”. He gave some address and left. Next week my fiance called him about the date of the interview, that person told to come the very next day. I was very happy because there was every chance of him to get a job.

Next day morning (On the day of the Interview) my fiance had a dream. The dream goes on like this ” My fiance was lost somewhere, he could not find the route to his place. He was worrying very much, suddenly Baba came on a Bicycle and said to my fiance that don’t worry. I will take you to your destination. He followed Baba and after some time, my fiance saw his parents. He was very happy to be back. Again after some time, he followed Baba to some place. There he saw a street full of Sai Baba pictures. Whereever he saw it was Sai Babaji’s picture. Suddenly Sai on the bicycle vanished”. He awoke from the dream, he was so happy to get such a dream on the interview day. He told me about the dream, even I felt very very happy. I thought all our difficulties came to an end. The same day when he went to the interview, he was offered some sales position and that too door to door. He was shocked, and even I was very depressed as we expected some better job because we did Master’s (MS). I asked Baba “Is this the only thing we have in our fate?” I told him we will accept any job which he shows and will move on. Even my fiance determined himself that he will do that job, if its the Baba’s wish. My fiance had no experience in sales in his lifetime and it was too tough to convince americans about anything being an Indian. Day-by-day he was losing hope and thought he will be fired even from that job. I prayed Sai Babaji, to help him, support him, give him confidence in doing sales. Miraculously his sales improved in such a way that he was doing better than american sales men. Even I felt happy because of the help from Babaji. A month passed on. Now we were getting enough money. The only thing which we were worried about was, both of our parents dont know that it was a sales job. Even we did not disclose it to them as they will feel low. Like this we were continuing our life. Suddenly my fiance got an interview call from one of the best company in USA. My fiance’s brother’s friend was working there. He was leaving to India for marriage purpose and he wanted to refer someone he knows. He chose my fiance for that. We felt very very happy, but the only thing was it was a different technology and its not easy to get a job. It was not a general phone – interview, it was a face-to-face interview which is even more tougher. But my fiance kept faith, even I was praying a lot for that job. It was only Baba who could help us. He studied only for one day about that complete new technology, and next day he got a call from that manager who was taking the interview. Miraculously he did well. Even I was sitting beside him, even I was amazed to see him to do so well. The very next day he was called for another round (this time face-to-face) interview to a different state (Newyork – we stay in Chicago). He booked the flight, attended the interview. The same day evening he go confirmed. This was in August 2009. Here I need to say one more thing, the job he got initially was only for 3 months, but our Babaji extended for a year more. Now we are very very happy and even our marriage is going to take place this year (2010).

Even I am waiting for my first job. It has been one and a half year since I am jobless. But I have faith in Baba that he will show me the right path. Though I lose my patience and faith sometimes, but my Babaji who cares for me a lot, pulls me to him, makes me read Satcharitra and keep me focused. He fills my eyes with tears of happiness all the time. Waiting for his graceful blessings on me. I will post even that miracle in this blog, once I get job.

So, from my personal experience, Sai taught me to have patience and faith. Only because of my fiance’s strong faith, Baba blessed him with such a beautiful dream and a good career. Even I am learning his greatness from the blogs and his miracles. Baba will bless you all. Just dont lose your faith which you have in him. Om Sai Ram
