We have been reading experiences of human devotees of Lord Sai Baba on this blog. But today’s post is an unusual one as Lord Sai Baba’s mercy on a pet dog is described below.
Sai Sister Roshni ji says: Om Sai Ram, Hi Hetal, I hope with Baba’s grace and blessings, you and your family are keeping well. We have written an experience with Baba below. I hope it will be posted in your blog. It actually happened with our pet dog (Benji), who we call Benji Baba, because we were guided to get a dog by Baba. We also see Baba in Benji on several occasions, which have been written by Lorraine in her third book “My truth”.
As you know Lorraine is visiting India next month and I am very happy for her and for ourselves, as we too, are traveling to India with husband and daughter at the end of December. We pray Baba to keep us in good health and happy always with family and friends.
Baba came to rescue Benji Baba:
Our pet dog, Benji Baba, sits near the door every evening and waits for our arrival from work. He gets up immediately, wags his tail and gives us a very loving welcome. But yesterday, the door was shut. Still I thought maybe he is in the backyard, with my daughter. When we opened the door, Divya was there, but escorting Benji Baba gently to come towards me. To my shock, Benji Baba was limping. It looked very bad. We immediately sat and asked Divya what had happened. She didn’t know exactly, but she was very worried too. We then applied some UDI on his right leg immediately and prayed to Baba to cure it soon. Because Benji Baba looked so sad and was in so much pain. Our son, Ronit, was whole day at home with Benji Baba. Since he was studying, he didn’t notice anything unusual about Benji Baba being hurt.
Anyway, Benji Baba then went from the steps down to the grass area, where he sat for a while. We later had to help him go up the steps, as he was unable to do that. Divya and I then sat close to him and I kept stroking his leg and massaged it too. I was praying to Baba to cure his leg soon. Benji Baba loves to shoo away birds, and he is very alert and he knows immediately if a bird is sitting on the fence. Two birds came and sat on the fence. Benji Baba turned his head to see them, but he showed no interest to chase them due to his pain. Those birds then flew away. After a while, another bird came. This time bird was sitting much closer to us. Benji Baba saw the bird and the bird saw Benji Baba. Both looked at each other for few seconds, as if communicating. But this bird was in no hurry to fly. It kept looking at Benji Baba and Benji Baba looked at him. Divya and I kept talking to Benji Baba. We did not at least think that Benji Baba would run and jump down on the grass to chase this particular bird.
To our amazement and shock, he did. Benji Baba jumped like always to chase the bird, who flew away. But Benji Baba’s leg suddenly became alright. He ran around, jumping everywhere up and down, barking with happiness. Divya laughed and giggled so much, but I laughed even more.
We just couldn’t believe what we saw. The bird was surely Baba, who came to cure Benji Baba. How the bird kept looking at Benji Baba was the point. Both were communicated by staring at each other. As if Baba is saying to Benji Baba, “Now you have to chase me, only then your pain will go”. Earlier, 2 other birds came, and Benji Baba saw them too, but they flew away and Benji Baba showed no interest in chasing them. So why Benji Baba chased the third bird only. We were so happy, I called Ronit from his room, who came immediately to see Benji Baba and gave him a big hug. Benji Baba was so happy too. I could actually see him smile. He did his usual barking, running and jumping.
Once before too, Benji Baba was hurt and then too Baba cured him immediately after we applied UDI. But yesterday, Benji Baba limped really bad. Baba heard our prayers and we thank Him from the bottom of our heart for He does come and rescue all His devotees when they are in trouble and pain. Doesn’t He? Jai Sai.
