In today’s post i am sharing few brief experiences of devotees of Lord Sai Baba of Shirdi.
Shirdi Sai Baba’s Grace Keeps Me Going
Sai Sister Renjini Ji from India says: Sai Ram Hetalji, My name is Ranjini. I am a frequent visitor of this website. I have been wishing to post my experience for such a long time. By Baba’s blessings, now I am able to do that.
I became a Shirdi Sai Baba devotee almost 7 months ago. I have gone through lot of sufferings in my life. 7 months ago, I was very much depressed due to certain problems. One day, I accidentally came across a Shirdi Sai Baba site. After reading the contents in that site, I started to get peace of mind. From that day, I started getting many experiences from Baba. I hope that I will be able to post all those experiences one day when Baba wills.
Today I want to post a recent experience of mine. In my last working place, I was having certain problems like work load etc. I thought about resigning many times. But friends and family kept me telling to resign only after getting another job. I am living and working in a small town and getting another job is difficult. Going to any city for interview is also difficult for me due to many reasons. I do not know what to do. One day, I gave the resignation without even getting another job. I believed that by the grace of Baba, I may get another job. After leaving the job, I started searching another job. I applied in many places, but I was not getting any interview calls. So I became very much worried. I decided to start 7 days parayan of ‘Sai Satcharitra’. That thought came to me on one Saturday. I thought like ‘Oh, today is Saturday. How can I start today? Coming Thursday, I will start’. Suddenly my inner voice said why delay in starting. If you start today, you can finish in Thursday. So I started reading that Saturday itself. I finished my reading on Thursday. That Thursday, I got 2 interview calls. See, Baba’s grace. I attended both of them. Both the companies informed me that they will inform me later.
Next Thursday, one of the companies called me and asked can I join next week. Actually I do not know what to say because it was not a job that I wanted. I mean my dream job was something else. For 2 days, I kept on thinking. Because of many reasons, having a job is very essential for me now. So I thought perhaps, this is Baba’s wish. Baba knows what is best for me more than I. So I decided to accept that job. Now I am working in that company.
Om Sai namo namo Sri Sai namo namo Jai Jai Sai namo namo
I hope and pray that you will post this experience of mine. You can reveal my identity. I have no problem in that.
Darshan of Sri Sai Nath Maharaj
Sai Devotee from India says: I have an experience to share that I had a few months back. I promised to share if I had any experience with our beloved SAI BABA and hence here I fulfill my promise.
I was reading this shlok of Shri Dattatreya Lord and I had vowed to read it for 40 days. In the meanwhile, I was called for my new job training to Bhubaneswar. After the completion of training, I had to join in the North East Region. I was very skeptical about my joining there, but as it was a government job, I did not feel like rejecting the offer. The day of my departure came and I left my home with a heavy heart after praying in front of the photo of our dear SAI. I surrendered to Him and asked Him to get me transferred to my native place as soon as possible.
As I sat on the train, I saw a man coming dressed exactly like Shri Sai Baba asking for money, only to me. For a fraction of a second, I could not understand, what is happening because beggars in our town are never dressed in such a manner. But then I took out some money and kept in his plate, on which was a picture of Sri Sai Baba. Interestingly the man went away only after my donation. He did not ask any other person for money, which generally does not happen with beggars. Soon after I had to change my seat and again HE came to me but I still don’t understand why I refused him money this time. I think because I did not realize at that time that it was Sai BABA Himself, who had come to bless me and assure me that all would be well. I am still sorry that I refused HIM the second time but I hope HE will forgive me as I know HE is very merciful to His devotees. I am here now in the North East region of my country, which is also a hard tenure place. Again I promise that as soon as I get transferred to my place, I will share my experience again.
OM SAI RAM
Baba Helped Me In Changing My Behavior
Sai Devotee from India says: Jai Sai Ram Hetal ji, Please don’t include my email.
First I would like to thank u for this site. You are doing a great service through this site. Today I would like to narrate a small experience through which Baba taught me a big lesson.
I am a calm and smooth person but I have two weak points. I don’t like hurting anyone even though they hurt me. But when someone touches my weak points I react violently, though not in front of the person but behind them in front of my family members. I used to shout about them and then try to recover from the bad feeling I have on them.
But one day, second day of the New Year, I and my husband were talking about some other person and I started reacting too violently using bad words towards that person as I was not comfortable with her behavior. I know she is a nice girl and she didn’t do anything but still I am not able to control myself. Total day was disturbed. My husband never saw me behaving in such a rude way.
Later after few days, when I sat down calm and thinking about my past behavior it hurtled me a lot. There is nothing so wrong. Then I got a good message in my mind “I should not say anything bad about any one because everyone behaves in their own point of view.” Baba says that He doesn’t like abusing. Then I tried to contact the women. She doesn’t know anything as I didn’t do anything in front of her but still I want to talk to her for my relief. She was not picking the phone. I tried many times but no response. I got a doubt whether she heard anything I spoke badly about her. I was afraid because I don’t want to lose a good friend because of ill behavior.
Now I am changed. I asked Baba to help me and bring our relations to normal as I understood my mistakes and I am trying to change. I prayed to Baba wholeheartedly and was asking Baba to bring her to our House before 7 days from that particular. And I left everything to Baba. You don’t imagine that she came on the 6th day and said that she was not able to receive my call as she was out of station for few days. And I understood that she doesn’t know anything. I am happy as our relations were normal as before.
With this small incident Baba helped me to change myself into a good person and to stop thinking bad about others on their backside.
Jai Sai Ram
Thank you, Hetal Ji for giving me this opportunity.
