Radha ji says: My name is Radha. I came into this sai circle two years back through a miraculous experience and was supported by a wonderful sai site and ever since I have remained there with all my sai friends who have now become like my family. I would like to share one miracle here.
I used to think years back that miracles happened only to others the good people, who are religious and have so much of staunch faith in baba. I thought I would be the last candidate for miracles. But then, Baba proved that everyone is same to Him. He makes us cry loud for help, He makes us remain patient and He makes us have Faith. And, He shows His miracle. Here is one.
I have been going through some health issues recently and one day, in questions and answers to baba, I was instructed by Baba to offer Chillam and tobacco at shirdi. As we were planning to go to shirdi in december 09, I was thrilled and prayed to baba to find a beautiful chilam. He guided us to buy a pretty chilim in shirdi, a clay one, with silver rim and gungrus attached to it. We offered it at Dwarakamayi. I was fascinated with this chilam offering and decided to pick up two simple chilams for the baba picture back at home.
I came home and kept the chilam in front of baba. I was desperate to get the tobacco but since I had no clue where to get the tobacco for pipes in Bangalore, I requested my driver, Nagaraj to get them for me. I had very severe back pain from the previous day, and so I had sprayed some medicine and I had also applied amrutanjan. All together the house was smelling of medicines. After I asked my driver to get the tobacco, I got back to my computer to work. Suddenly all the medicine smell vanished from the house. I had no clue what is going on. All on a sudden, there was a strange smell in the house. It was filling the entire house for a while. I recognised it first to be the smell of cigarette and then realised that it was actually tobacco smell. I stood there in awe and closed my eyes with tears rolling down. After about 3-4 minutes, the tobacco smell vanished completely and all on a sudden the medicine smell came back.
I felt that Baba came home to show his love to us. If this can happen to me, it is nothing but His Mercy. I can never forget this day in my entire life.
May He always bless us with Faith and Patience.
Natasha ji says: Dear Hetalji,
Thank you for making possible this wonderful opportunity of seeing Baba’s devotees experiences even today. I have often read your blog and would like to take the opportunity to share some of my own experiences. Kindly edit as you deem fit.
- Experience: 1 Baba crossed the seven seas when I prayed for his help.
In 2008, I was working for a global consulting company. I was placed on the US part of a Belgium based project. After the first phase the client wanted to shift all consultants to Belgium for easy operation. I was asked to do the same too. This involved leaving my home and my husband for six months and living in a dingy accommodation and no facility to return to the US till my project was completed. Additionally, I was scared since they were calling me and paying for my expenses and expected me to do work on a technology I had no idea about. I had to deliver but I knew it was impossible for me to do the work they were asking since I did not have the skill set. I was afraid and prayed to Babaji night and day. I could not sleep or eat in peace. All I would do is just look at his picture and say “I do not want to go.. please save me” A week passed and I had to get the Belgium visa and other paper work done. Baba made so many problems come up with the paper work but the client was determined and wanted to work through all of these. Then out of the blue one day I was asked to meet the Client side Project Manager and she began to ask me if I would like to excuse myself from the project and she began to explain why they could not have me on the project. My joy knew no bounds. I thanked babaji in my heart. One day the client project manager was ready to fight the world to get me to work from Belgium and the next day Sai changed her heart and she let me go.. I cannot help but remember my Sai say that when we his children call him and leave our Burden on him—He will bear it. He bore mine and I never had to leave home.
- Experience 2: Sai heard my prayer and gifted me a job.
Another incident occurred in April 2009. Due to the recession I lost my job. Quite some time had passed and I had no hope of finding one. I started doing the Pranayam and kept the live camera from Shirdi running on my computer so I could see my god as I read the Satcharita. One of the days of my Pranayam, I looked at Sai and asked him, “Please Baba get me a job will you?” Within an hour I got a call from a company and in a month or two after interviews I joined them. I never submitted my resume to them. They looked it up on a website and called me of their own accord. So, I want to tell all my fellow Sai sisters and brothers that when we speak from the heart Baba listens to us. Sometimes I get doubtful but when I remember all the times Baba has saved me and that gives me the strength to hold on.
Sai Baba Blessed my daughter with her College Admission
Anonymous devotee says: Namasthe Hetal ji, I have been introduced to Saibaba by my dad’s collegue at work when I was a teenager in India. I had not-so happy childhood, had a step-mom. My dad gave more importance and care to my step-siblings and step-mom. Since my teen years, I have prayed baba a lot. I know he is there for all of us and takes care of all us all the time. I found out about this blog while surfing the net. Since then I visit the blog first thing in the morning and read the devotee’s experiences. One of these days, I read a blog about posted on Jan 24 about the Miracles of Shibpur Sai Mandir. I was moved by that. All day I was thinking of it at work. In the evening after I came home spoke to my husband about the Shibpur Sai mandir. Then I prayed to baba “If my daughter gets into the college I will contribute towards to the charity work which is undertaken” In 5 seconds, the phone rang, the lady from the College to which my daughter applied and eagerly waiting to hear from called, and she wanted to talk to my daughter who was taking her evening nap, my husband woke her up and told her the college person is on the phone. The lady told my daughter that she has been admitted into their college, What a Miracle! I looked at the Live Shirdi Sai Darshan which was on my computer next to my bed and thanked Baba. We went through so much in our lives. Especially my daughter – she has a chronic health problem since the age of 11 months and some other issue about which I will write in another blog. Baba is there and and gives us whatever is good for us.
