Sai Baba Always Keeps His Words
Sai Brother Amit ji from Singapore says: You are doing a wonderful job by helping devotees in posting their experience and Baba’s Leela. These experiences help us to understand that Baba is so caring and kind and Increase our faith & keep us on correct path. Kindly help in posting my experience. Hetal ji please do not publish my email id.
Last time I shared this experience, but I cut down the ending short (Please forgive me Baba). Hence I am sharing again.
Koti Koti Pranm to Sai Baba. During first half of year 2009, I was facing lots of challenges with my job. I was actively looking for a job. Later by Baba’s grace, I got a wonderful job with excellent role, work culture, and salary (15% hike from previous salary, which was nearly impossible during this recession) with high figure (which I thought in my mind, got without any negotiation). During this tough time, I kept 9 Thursday Sai vrat. Also I was reading Sai devotee experience regularly on net and sometime I asked Baba questions/His advice at http://www.shirdi-sai-baba.com/.
One day when I asked Baba His advice, I got a reply stating that “You will have Darshan of Sai in some form on Guru Poornima (7th July), watch at 9:00 PM”.
I go Shirdi Sai Baba temple every Thursday. I definitely had a plan to visit temple on Guru Purnima day. Every Thursday, we have Aarti at 8:30 PM in Singapore Sai temple and it finishes at 8:45 PM. Then there is Prasad distribution on 2nd floor. I generally join others in distributing Baba Prasad. When I got Baba reply about 9:00 pm Darshan, I was very curious as we do not have any photo or statue of Baba on 2nd floor, where we distribute Prasad and distribution finishes only at around 9:30 pm. I was thinking how it is possible. I prayed to Baba, Baba at least I should be able to recognize You.
The Guru Purnima day arrived and I went to temple. After Aarti, I started distributing Prasad on 2nd floor at 8:45 pm. At 2nd floor, I tried to see here & there for Baba’s Darshan (photo/statue), but did not find anything. Then I just forgot and just concentrated on distributing Prasad. Again I remembered and started seeing my watch it was 9:00 PM. Nothing happened then it was 9:05 PM in my watch & so on. Suddenly I saw a person in front of me with Kurta/Pyjama having Baba locket in neck. Kurta neck was not big. However chain got twisted and locket was clearly visible outside. I still remember Baba were blessing with both the hands up in locket. I gave Prasad to the person & immediately saw my watch. It was 9:11 pm. I was happy but not very excited. Also I thought it might be just a coincidence, as Baba promised me to give Darshan at 9:00 PM.
Later I left the temple & came to MRT station to take train to my home. I was waiting at platform and watching display board for train arrival time. A Big surprise I noticed my watch was exactly 11 minutes fast. Baba is so kind and He always keeps His words. Only thing He expects from us is faith & patience.
The Greatness Of Baba’s UDI
I always start my day with Sai’s Puja and applying UDI on my forehead. I always feel that it has immense power of healing. I had severe food poisoning two months back and had a miserable time at my work place on that day. That was treated by the doctor on next day. It had bothered me for 2 days.
Last month, one day morning, I felt same symptoms that I experienced two months back. I got panicky as I had to attend to my job and no doctor was available in the morning at 6.30 AM. I prayed to Baba and took little bit of UDI and drank the water in which I mixed the UDI. I prayed to Baba that I have to go to my workplace and please do help me and control the upset stomach. I proceeded to my work and by Baba’s grace I had a normal working day without any problem. I did not have any pain, stomach upset and all the other symptoms of diarrhea were vanished. This was done by Baba through His UDI that I had in the morning. I have experienced the greatness of UDI twice before also for some other problem. I sincerely want to share my experience with all Sai devotees. Thank you Baba, for being there with me always.
Success In Exam Due To Sai’s Grace
Sai Sister Divya ji from USA says: Hetal ji, I’ve shared an experience (Sai saved me from traffic ticket in Houston) in your website. Thank you for taking the time to post all the devotees experiences. I recently read about your trip to Shirdi with Rana ji. He is really fortunate to be able to sing Bhajans in Shirdi in front of Sai. I hope that I too shall be able to do it with Sai’s grace.
I’ve been trying to pass the physical therapy license exam in USA (only then I can work as a therapist here) since 2008. I gave it twice and lost by few marks both times. I felt so frustrated and dejected by it. All through school and college in India, I had always been successful in exams. But this exam was different and required lot of analysis and reasoning. May be Sai wanted to crush my pride that I would always get it right the first time. I guess He was teaching me about failure and conveying the fact that it is not the end of life.
So When I gave this exam on May 25 (Wednesday), each member of my family was praying for me in their own way. On the day of exam I finished the paper on time, but I was not confident as I had failed twice. I just prayed to Sai saying, “This is the last time. I do not wish to give this anymore. Please help me”. I was crying throughout the way from exam center to home. My husband was consoling me saying, “God is with you; don’t cry you’ll pass this time”. The organization which conducts this exam had said earlier it would announce the results on June 8. So I was thinking I would’ve to pass 2 weeks in tension. But by God’s Grace the result was online next day (on Thursday). I happened to know about this only on Friday morning. My friends called me on Thursday, but I did not answer as I was doing Bhajans at Sai center. As you might expect, I had passed the exam. I felt so relieved and happy. It was only by Sai’s grace I passed. Everyone said it is due to hard work, but without God (Sai), not even one creature would move on this earth. So I wish to tell everyone whatever God does he does for Good. We just do not understand the reason behind His every action.
Keep faith in Sai.
