Here are few brief experiences of devotees with Lord Shirdi Sai Baba. In one of these, the devotee has asked not to publish experience, but it has been shared here so that each one reading it can pray for the devotee. I apologise for taking liberty to publish the experience (rather prayer).
Sai Can Come Anywhere Anytime
Sai Brother Sridhar ji from Canada says: I had many experiences from Sai. I wish to post them later. With humble salutations, I wish to post the following two experiences.
- Sai showed me a miracle on 14-July 2010: I was having depressive thoughts but was constantly remembering Sai in my heart. 2 or 3 days before that, when I had an apricot fruit at my home, I showed it before Sai’s idol and offered him to take a little, please. On that day, my wife gave me a box with some apricot fruits, banana loaf and other nuts in a box for my lunch. In the afternoon at my office, I was having the fruits while speaking with my cousin. Suddenly, I could notice, one of the apricots was half eaten and when I took it, the thought of me asking Sai to eat it hit my mind. But I didn’t speak anything about this to my cousin and just ate that fruit, thinking it as His prasadam. After a while, I called my wife to find out if she bites any fruit before/after keeping it in the box. Actually she hasn’t, even though she said I don’t remember so. I know it’s only my Sai, who did this.
- Recent experience in Feb 2011: I was in a low gloomy mood and thought of Baba. I was hearing the Lalitha Sahasranamam in the YouTube. Mean while I was asking Baba that “Baba it has been long time you have shown me miracles, please show me one now to reinforce my faith in you. Again I was saying, Baba, just show me your photo in the Lalitha Sahasranamam song I am seeing now. The video(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frW07D8pQko&feature=fvsr), which I viewed till then had only goddess photos and I was wondering how can I expect Sai’s picture here and again I was thinking Sai has infinite powers and He can do anything, which we can think it’s impossible. With these thoughts and after watching the video for some more time, I was about to get up and go, suddenly to my surprise the next picture in the video (@7.15 of the video) was a photo of Shiva and Parvathi and nearby that I could see a small Sai Baba picture. I was in awe and feeling emotionally moved. Sai has no limits. He can come anywhere and everywhere. We have to quieten our rational questioning mind for some time and just believe Him single pointedly. We have to always reinforce the thoughts that He is always with us and at sometime it will become spontaneous in us.
Baba has shown me many miracles and at the core of the heart I thank Him for all He is.
I only pray to Him to give me absolute faith in Him in all situations.
Request To Sai Baba
Sai Sister Hema ji from UK says: Hi, My name is Hema and I am from Hyderabad, India, but I live and work in UK. I do not want you to post my experience, but would like you to read as Sai is not listening to my prayers. Although, my family worshiped Sai Baba. I wasn’t a great devotee of Him until I decided that I would like to get married to my boyfriend Sunil Vdlakonda, whom I met in UK. He belongs to a different caste and I knew it would be really difficult to convince our parents. I started to pray to Sai Baba, I don’t even know what inspired me to do so. I wanted to go to Sai Baba’s temple in London with Sunil. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen for 3 or 4 times, even though we were in London. Finally the day has come and we got to see Him. But another unfortunate incident happened; Sunil parked his car in the wrong place, so we had to pay fine. I wasn’t very happy about it, not because we were paying fine, just because it happened, when we visited Sai Baba’s temple. I set up a direct debit to Sai Baba’s temple on hemasunil’s name. I prayed a lot to Him to help us to get married, because I know it would be very difficult to convince our parents. I even read Shri Sai Satcharitra in four days because of time constraint. I did all this just because I wanted to get married to Sunil. I did tell Sai Baba that I was being selfish and would never forget or ignore Him at any point of my life. But tomorrow, 16/mar, Sunil is due to get married to another girl because of his parents. I am, here in UK, depressed writing this email not knowing what to do. I have no will to live. I believe in Sai Baba. I would want Him to do some miracle and get me married to Sunil.
Sai, Please help me.
Sai Baba’s Mercy On My Daughter
Sai Sister Kavitha ji from USA says: Dear Baba’s child, Hetal ji, please make corrections where necessary. Thank you for posting Baba’s blessings on my daughter.
I would like to share my experience. It’s a big one for me, but may be small to others. In USA, the schools conduct MOEMS test for elementary kids and middle school too. My daughter is a fifth grader. She is eligible for elementary level MOEMS test. It is optional to go for such tests. Every month there will be a test having five questions per test and this goes for five months. And if one gets everything correct, they will get 5 points and so totally 25 points test on total.
In the first test, my daughter got 5 points. But, just before the second test, Baba told she will get 3 and so happened and my daughter was little disappointed as she knows my dreams come true. Then she got 5 points in third test, 4 points in 4th test and on the fifth test. She mentioned she was sleepy as the test is conducted at 6:30 PM after the school. She was literally exhausted and the test cannot be postponed or can’t be taken some other time. The school ends at 3:15pm and I take her to library and make her do homework and take to school back again, instead of coming home as we are few miles away from school. I was worried and told my daughter to chant “Sairam SaiRam….” And asked her to tell Baba please help her. I did the same too. Then just before the test I washed her face and told best of luck and asked her to do the best. I just chanted HIS name for half an hour till the test is completed. After the test, she was told by her teacher that she got a perfect score, which is 5. I could not believe as the test itself is hard. So I thought she may get 4 at the most. The story did not end there. Her friend, Daniel who usually gets a good score got just 2 instead of 5. I know truly that it is Baba’s hand behind, otherwise how could it happen? It’s all HIS grace, my daughter is a topper in the 5 tests as her score is 22 out of 25, but Daniel got 21/25. Just a single point made a big difference. Baba over ruled it. I can sense with my heart. Thanks Baba.
These tests are all competitive and hard to understand the problem as they are tricky to understand and the time limit is also 30 min to answer tricky question. Sometimes I can’t help my daughter also. All the credit goes to HIM.
