Shirdi Darshan Experience & My Prayer To Baba – Sai Devotee Priyambada

After reading an experience of Shirdi Darshan experience as a treat, here is one more for all of us. While we never pick experiences randomly to be published, it is sai-incidence that two experiences of the same sort are being posted in span of two days. Please enjoy this treat once again by going through following experience. Such experiences of Shirdi trip are coming on my way just to re-assure and remind me all the time that i have to go to Shirdi next month and only 43 days are remaining. I am experiencing so much of joy, energy, positiveness, enthusiasm in myself admist many worldly problems that i am not able to express. At this point of time blessings to be received in Shirdi by me are under cover, but Lord Sai Baba knows it very well how He has to bless me. O My Baba! I am always longing to come to You, see You, talk to You and be with You. Your mercy on me can only be counted (if You will) with tears flowing on my cheeks often when i think of You.

Sai Sister Priyambada ji from India says: Om Sai Ram. Jai Sai Ganesh.

Sairam Hetal Ji, Many thanks to you for launching this blog. This helps us to share our experiences and get inspired reading the experiences of other devotees. May Baba shower His choicest blessings on you today and always. Stated below is my recent Shirdi Darshan experience that also contains my earnest prayer to Sai Deva. Request you to please publish it after the necessary editing that you feel may be required. You may publish my name and email-id. Thanks to Sai that I am able to pen down my experience with His grace. May Deva forgive me for any mistakes and omissions.

I lost my Father at a tender age. I consider Baba to be my Father and I have been praying to Him to find me a suitable groom. My mother, being my sole guardian, is pretty anxious about my marriage and has been trying to find a nice guy. Baba has come into our lives at this crucial juncture and He has been holding our hands ever since. Whenever we have asked for His guidance, He is prompt to give it at once. All His answers to our questions have been positive saying that I would get success and happiness soon. To ease my disturbed mind, Baba pulled me to Shirdi recently and below is my Darshan experience.

Though, I had been trying to work out a trip to Shirdi after Baba’s suggestion. Nothing seemed to materialize and finally I left it to Baba to arrange my trip if He so desired. And suddenly in a matter of two days, my tickets were booked to Shirdi. When my Aunty decided to accompany me, it was like Sai arranged it all. The journey was smooth and we reached Shirdi in time. I was eager to have Darshan of Baba and we joined the queue. All the while, I was praying Baba to give a something as a token of His blessings and love during my Darshan.

Our turn came, as we came close to Baba’s Samadhi and I handed over the box of sweets that I got for Baba. The priest then opened the box and offered a few sweets to Baba on His Samadhi and I was really happy to see this, as otherwise the offerings made to Baba is normally just touched to His Idol and returned back as it is, due to the constant heavy rush of devotees. And to add to my joy, the priest gave me a garland offered to Sai. I was overcome with tears and bowed down on Baba’s holy Paduka and reverentially saluted His Samadhi.

The security guard nearby asked me to come back a little to one corner and he let me stand there for a while as I tried controlling my tears. I was so touched that I don’t remember praying to Him at that moment. I was happy to have had the opportunity to touch Baba’s Paduka and Samadhi and stand so close to Baba for some time, amidst the rush. I went out and felt good thinking that Baba does love me indeed and has blessed me and that my problems would be over soon.

We had Baba’s Prasad in the Prasadalaya and went to meet Dhondi Baba later. He was resting at that time. After waiting for a while, we got to meet him. I was longing for his blessings too and was waiting for my turn to touch his holy feet. He all of a sudden handed me a 100 rupees note that was given to him by another Devotee. I felt a sudden rush of joy within and humbly bowed and touched his feet. We left after seeking his blessings.

In the evening, we went near the holy Neem tree as I was eager to collect the sacred Neem leaves. The guard there asked me to complete a few rounds of the tree for assuring me that I would certainly get the leaves if I complete a few rounds. And I did manage to get 4 leaves, all with Baba’s will and blessings. We then visited the holy Dwarakamai, Chawadi, Dakshinamukhi Hanuman temple, Ganapati Ji’s Temple, Lord Shani Dev’s temple, and Lord Shiva’s temple. I lovingly offered a coconut to My Baba at Dwarakamai and prayed to Him.

After having dinner later, we rested a while in the temple premises. We then joined the queue for witnessing the Kakad Aarti at around 1 pm. Baba was looking so merciful during the Kakad Aarti. Due to His grace, I got the chance to be a part of His Aarti for the first time in Shirdi. Thanks a lot Deva. While I was praying Baba to give me some token of love, which I could keep forever that would never perish. Later during my visit to Dwarakamai, an aged person gave me a photo of Baba and I was thrilled to receive that. We visited Abdul Baba’s cottage too and an old fakir there blessed me so lovingly. In my heart of hearts, I was longing to be blessed by a Fakir. It was a nice feeling. We went to Lord Khandoba’s temple too, before starting back on our return journey. It was blissful and the temple ambiance was so peaceful. We reached back safely and I was satisfied. All the while praying Baba to help find a nice husband for me soon and call me to His Shirdi again with my family.

I am eagerly waiting to see Baba’s miracle happen in my life soon and would surely post that experience here. May Deva bless us all always and help, guide and advice us in all our affairs. Love you Baba.

Oh my loving Father Sai,

My prayers at your holy feet
Your blessings we seek always
Please hear our humble request
Shower your grace on us ever
And make our lives worthy
Your feet is our sole refuge
Help us remember you every moment
With your divine love and care
Let our lives bloom like flowers!
