Dear Sai Readers, it gives me immense pleasure to announce that a blog describing Devotee Experiences with Shirdi Sai Baba in Gujarati in being released today. In Shri Sai Satcharitra we had read, in chapter 39 that, “Baba never talked, nor ever made any fuss about the things which He wanted to accomplish, but He so skillfully arranged the circumstances and surroundings that the people were surprised at the slow but sure results attained.” This i experienced few days before.
In one of my posts on Shirdi Sai Baba Life Teachings and Stories blog for which i possess immense passion, i had shared that i was learning Graphics and Web-designing. While we were in centre, we were supposed to keep our cell phones silent or switch it off to avoid disturbance. One fine day, before two or three months ago, i entered centre without keeping my cell on silent. This is realised when cellphone rang immediately on my entering waiting area. As a devotee of Lord Sai Baba, i had one of my most favourite bhajan “Sai Teri Leela” as my ringtone. I quickly finished call and went to lab where i was supposed to be. This seems to be very simple happening. A day to day incident. But Lord Sai Baba was working behind scene.
The computer center’s waiting area is common to all students. On that day when i entered and my phone rang, two students were waiting for their lecture to start. One of them was Sai devotee which i came to know in future course. As he heard ringtone, he wished he could also get it, but felt hesitant to ask me being a female and also we were not introduced to each other. So he did not dare to approach me
With time passing by, i was required to change batch timings and i really did not wish to get enrolled in the batch in which that person was. The reason being, there were many students in that batch and i thought i would not get personal attention if i was included there. My fear came true and i was switched to that batch. As per my experiences with Lord Sai Baba, He desperately makes me face those things that fear me, so that i become strong. But this time His plans were different.
In early months of this year, there came a change in my life. While i had left my job for Lord Baba’s blog work, i never ever thought to go anywhere and work. This, i guess was wish for Lord Sai for me. But in my heart there was a wish to work but i told Lord Baba that i would like to work from home only, so that blog work also goes on continually. This thought came in my mind while crossing road to my computer centre. After few weeks, some happenings happened in my life which left me depressed and i really wanted to get out of them. People who feel their presence in spiritual world, i feel, live their lives in two parts – The outer world and the other their inner spiritual world. So sometimes when there are disturbances in their outer world, their spiritual life gets distracted. This was with me too. There was no way that i can escape those situations, but i did not want that they should affect my spiritual world. So the best way was to be engaged on some work of my choice, so that i can atleast escape from my own thoughts. Dear Readers, it is very difficult to fight with own ourselves. So an idea came to my mind to start my own work in the same field in which was studying. With permission of Lord Baba, i started. Few names were shortlisted for the company name, but Lord Baba choose the name which He wanted and gave me proof of His willingness too. Being a devotee of Lord Baba, i wished that my company’s name should start with His name only and He chose name as “Sai Ichchha Creatives“. This ensured me that Lord Baba’s wish was not different from my wish.
Coming back to incident.Then situations took turn. Gradually i became friendly with my new colleagues. We used to plan how can we work together, what all we need to learn further more and so. That devotee of Lord Baba, told me about ringtone incident and told that he is also devotee. In few days, we become familiar with each other and most of the time we used to talk about our beloved Lord Baba.
Since i had started my company, i had started getting projects with grace of Lord Baba. Being active on facebook, i was contacted by a devotee of Lord Baba to help him make a blog related to Lord Baba. I did so. I request you all to visit this blog named “Shirdi Sai Samarath“. The devotee further expressed his wish to make a blog in gujarati too as i reside in Gujarat state.
The next day when i reached computer centre, i was asked by Sai brother Nayan about blogging. I told him details. He expressed his wish to make a blog and write something for Lord Baba. I was happy to know this and promised to help him in whatever way he wanted. With 5-6 days of extensive training, today he is ready with his first post on his first blog named Shirdi Sai Baba Devotee Experiences in Gujarati. The posts already published on this blog will now be translated in Gujarati. I guess it’s an auspicious moment for Gujarati readers of this blog and many future readers too. Please visit these newly created blogs “Shirdi Sai Samarath” and Shirdi Sai Baba Devotee Experiences in Gujarati in which authors have tried their level best to enlighten teachings of Lord Baba further more. Thanks for being patient to read this lengthy post.
