Lord Sai Baba when in His bodily form used to appear in dreams of devotees, the situations turned up as said by Him and the dreams were not dreams, they were realities and instructions for the devotees in their resting states. Today also we come across many devotees (including me) who say that Lord Sai Baba come in their dreams and help them to come out of situations. When i had just started praying to Lord Sai Baba, He appeared in my dreams and gave me instructions about the form in which He wishes my service to Him. Following is an experience of Sudhamayee ji who has shared one of her dreams and showed us how Lord Sai Baba is alive even in spirits through His Samadhi in Shirdi!
Sai Sister Sudhamayee ji from India says: Good Morning to all. After reading different experiences of SHIRDI SAI devotees, I too wanted to share mine and here I am. I had been serious devotee of Baba since the age 15 yrs. He changed me a lot from then. Baba appears in my dreams often and gives important instructions to me, whenever needed. I feel I am one of the luckiest persons in the world.
It happened in the year of 2008, when I was pursuing last semester of my B. Tech. degree. I was very good at studies (One of the toppers). However my talent is limited to only WRITING exams. I have very poor communication skills. Basically being a very shy girl, I never used to attend any seminars, group discussions, debates or anything, which requires bold presentation of one’s views. When campus interviews were on, I used to fail in interview round, though I very well managed passing written tests. I lost in many MNCs like Infosys, Wipro etc. Even if I performed well in some interviews, for no proper reason, I used to get rejected. I was very much disappointed. Besides this, there was one more problem. Our family, especially my mom believes a lot in astrology and future telling. One day a tribal saint, who could tell the fortune of a person on looking at his/her face came to our home. On looking at me he predicted that I had “Nagadosham” (curse of goddesses of serpent) and that is the reason why I haven’t secured a job in spite of having talent. As a remedy he gave me a copper dollar containing the figure of three headed serpent and asked me to wear it on my chain. I and my mom could not deny his words.
There is a strong reason. I used to dream giant, green and black serpents pursuing me often. Many a times in my dreams, a big and black serpent with shining eyes used to pursue me to bite me and I used to run for my life. In South India, many people worship goddesses of serpent and hereditarily. She is one of our family deities. After a few days, this incident happened. Wipro campus selections were on. I had lot of hopes on the campus selection of Wipro. I prepared very well, but I failed in interview even though I performed to my best in it. This time, I lost all the hopes. I prayed to BABA and worried if the prediction of the saint about the serpent’s curse is true. Three days later, BABA appeared in my dreams. The dream went on like this. I stood before the Dwarakamai and BABA came shouting at me, ”Do you know how foolish are your thoughts?”. He pointed to a serpent idol with shining eyes in front of Dwarakamai, and shouted, “Do you fear from it (the serpent)? What is there to fear? It has been from many years, so what?? There is nothing in it. Do you think it ruined your opportunities? Now you should have full faith on me and attend a campus interview without any preparation. I will see how you could not secure a job”. In the morning, I begged for Baba’s pardon and removed the serpent’s dollar and kept it behind the picture of Saibaba in our prayer room.
One week later, a company came for recruitment in our college. As usual I passed the written test. Next round was group discussion. I thought of absconding from there. I fear group discussions that much. But I reminded what Baba told me in my dream, ”Attend without preparation”. I wanted to test Him. When all my friends were discussing about the topics, so that they can have a fair chances of being asked in discussion. I kept away myself from them out of tension, went to college library and read some daily magazine. In that magazine, I came across a topic which analyzed 2 colors – red and blue and their impact on humans. Just then I said to Baba in my heart, ”Baba I believe in you. Now I have to attend a group discussion. I cannot speak on topics spontaneously, unless I prepare for them very well. At present, I have nothing in my mind expect for this colors topic. I feel happy if I am asked to have a discussion about this or else if any other topic is given, I can’t speak. Please help me Baba”.
Praying like this, I left the library and waited outside the panel for my turn in group discussion. 30 minutes later, our group was called and the topic was given. I did not believe my ears, when they announced the topic for discussion. The topic was “RED Vs BLUE”. This means Baba has listened to my prayer. I was relieved from fear and discussed all those points, which I have read in the magazine just an hour before. I passed group discussion. Later, I had to face an interview. My answering was just ok. Frankly, it was better than the worst. But still I passed and I got selected. I don’t know how to thank Baba. He stood by what He said. I went home and searched for that serpent dollar. But I could not find it anywhere in the prayer room. I realized Baba’s word in His Sai Satcharitra, “No matter how many sweet and good words other saints say, believe in your own guru. He will take care of you”. And one more thing, on the day Baba appeared in the dream and told me not to fear the serpent. I never dreamt any serpents again. JAI SRI SAI RAM
One thing I learned from this experience is that “There is no power above Baba, which could influence his devotees. Everything, either good or bad happens as per the will and wish of Baba. Just believe in Him and surrender yourselves completely to Him”.
