Anonymous Devotee from USA says: I pray Baba whole heartedly to give me the ability to describe all the miracles He did with our lives. I place my head at His feet and I pray that I am not eligible to write about His power, but sincerely pray that He gives me the power to complete this post. Secondly, I thank Hetal Ji from the bottom of my heart for giving all the Sai Bhakt’s a platform for sharing their wonderful experiences. Hetal Ji, I really consider you as the second Hemadpant and I am sure many people do the same as you and your team are doing a wonderful work. Thirdly I thank all the devotees who are reading this experience and I wish they get our Baba’s merciful blessings. Please do not disclose my name and email and keep me Anonymous. This is my third post. Now I will start my experience explaining how Baba got me and my husband wonderful jobs.
I already shared my previous experiences about how he helped me to get my first job, which was an utter miracle. Till now, I have been working in the same company for almost 2+ years and I was looking for a job change as my vendor company was not increasing my pay. I was trying for a new job from Nov 2011, but I never tried it seriously as I was too afraid to leave my present job. I wrote a chit mentioning my expected salary and placed it before Baba’s picture in my work place cube and asked Him to get me some job by Feb 2012. The number, which I wrote, was far more than what I am getting now. And I thought I was asking too much. But again I thought let’s leave the decision to our Baba. After that, I attended few interviews. Most of them went well and I used to get positive feedback, but I never got the job. I used to beg Baba not to give me interviews, where I would fail because I would lose all my confidence. He listened to my prayers and many of the interviews got cancelled even before I attended them. The few, which I attended, gave me a positive feedback, but not the job. Meanwhile I used to continue working and always worry about future. I used to envy my friends, who have very good jobs and wonder why I am not that lucky. But faith on Baba kept me going. Then in March 2012, my husband lost his job and we were very much worried as we already planned my in laws first trip to USA in April 2012. Now, everything depends on the stability of my job and I did not want to move till my husband gets a job. The problem was my husband did not have the flexibility to go to other states for job search as his parents were visiting us for the next one month.
Meanwhile I got frustrated because nothing was working out, and everything went downhill after I decided to change my job. Then I asked Baba through question and answers site that when will we have improvement in our lives. He answered “Read pothi, all your wishes will come true”. Here I need to mention that reading Sai Satcharitra only gave me my first job. After 1 year of recession and staying at home unemployed, I got frustrated and decided like this “ If I finish reading the whole Sai Satcharitra in one day (I started in the evening) then I will get job and Baba wants to give me a job. Otherwise I will leave to India”. By His grace, I read the whole night till morning and finished it by 9 AM next morning. I got a long term job in the same week, without any interview. What is this called other than “Miracle”.
Coming back to my present experience, I decided to finish Sai Satcharitra in one week. I thought to myself like this “Baba I will stop my entire job search for 1 week and place the entire burden on Your feet to give us both good jobs. Rest is Your wish and I will accept it whatever it is”. I started reading Sai Satcharitra on Sunday with full faith. I also did 108 Sai Namavali 10 times per day for a week. I finished my Parayan in 1 week and offered flowers to Baba on Thursday. The following week, we were busy in welcoming my in laws. In that week itself, I got a reply from a vendor about a position. I applied 2-3 weeks back before I started Parayan. I did not get any reply from them at that time and decided that they did not pick my resume. He arranged my interview immediately and also told me that this is a promising position. I have a habit of asking Baba to talk on behalf of me in the interview and I honestly believe that I don’t have any talent and without His grace, nothing comes. I got the call, finished the call in 25 minutes. It went well, but I was not sure if they will give the job as I did not answer all the questions and also I did not have enough experience in that new technology. As usual, I got a positive feedback and the vendor said I was in the finalists, but not yet confirmed. They interviewed 150 members for this position as it requires lot of experience and also has high pay rate. I asked Baba to wear “Green” if I will get this job or “Red” if I will not (I also have this habit and I apologize Baba for troubling Him a lot. But like a father, He forgives me). I opened Sai Sansthan’s Live Darshan and was surprised to see that He was wearing a beautiful green colored shawl. I was excited and I was sure that I will get selected. I was informed that I got selected, but they will do a strict background check. I passed drug test, criminal etc and all. But they never confirmed me that my Background check is complete. Meanwhile I was getting tensed as I already informed my present client that I will be leaving. No signs of confirmation or joining date till one week. Day by day, I was afraid that I will lose everything. Then one day during my work hours, I started to a coffee shop and I thought to myself that “Sai please show me a symbol or Your name somewhere before I take my coffee, then I will get confirmation that I will pass the BG check”. I started to that coffee shop and was searching for His name desperately. I neared the place but still no sign. I entered the place, but no sign of Him. I became depressed as I strongly believe in Baba’s words and signs. Then all of the sudden, before I could take my coffee, the fire alarm went off. Everyone was asked to step out. So I came out before taking my coffee. I decided to go to other Starbucks coffee shop nearby and asked Baba to show some sign at least this time. I reached the place. I was so hungry and depressed. I took coffee and some cake and sat in the store. I ate half of the cake and now was little bit pleasant as my stomach was full at least. I sat there thinking what a misfortunate girl I was and now I will lose even my current job as I did not see any sign. Just then a big truck came named “SAIA” and stopped in front of me. I have no clue why it stopped in the middle of the road as the traffic light was green. I was exactly opposite to the big letters “SAIA” and was in a shocked state. This reminds me of His words “Never search for God with empty stomach”. Finally He showed me the sign and Baba knows how important it was to me. I was delighted and as He passed the judgment and as expected I got my BG check done and got my joining date in May 2012. On the day of joining, I forgot Sai’s picture to carry with me. Again my doubting mind started working and I prayed to Him that I should see His name again if He was with me and if this job was good for me. I travelled for 1 hour and I was nearing the work place. I lost all my hope and told Him “I give up, I can’t find Your name anywhere. Now it is Your wish to beset in front of me”. Just then in few seconds the same truck with “SAIA” came in front of me. Just imagine how much of peace and happiness would have come to me at that time. I joined my new company and writing this experience from there. I also should mention that my salary of the current job is far more than what I expected (what I wrote in the chit before).When I was traveling in the train I asked Baba to come in front of me if I should ask more pay rate than what they advertised. If not, I will keep quiet and accept His decision. I did this with my first job also. As I did not see His name, I kept quiet. He knows that I will follow His decision. Suddenly a person who was sitting in front of me flashed a placard written as “JESUS” with big letters. I consider JESUS, ALLAH, SAI and all other Gods as one. So I asked the vendor for more pay rate and they said they will try. In 3 days, the same vendor, who did not even consider my employer’s request to increase pay rate, increased my pay rate more than what I asked. This is one of the miraculous experiences of the many which we have.
I did my Parayan for both my husband and me. He answered my prayers and we were still waiting for His job. At first my husband did not heed to my words, when I suggested Him to read the Sai Satcharitra. But somehow his mind changed and he decided to read the Sai Satcharitra and that was a Wednesday. Just after 5 minutes after uttering those words, he got a call that he got confirmed for a project, but in a different state (See the Sai Leela here, just thinking of doing the Parayan got his wish come true). He gave like 2-3 interviews before, but none of them got fruitful as they were delayed or closed and some of them did not reach the client. Sai also made sure that his joining date is just a day after his parents left to India so that he will not miss them. I don’t know any other word except “MIRACLES” to describe the above experiences. Sorry for the extremely long post and I also have lot of other experiences, which I will post in future. Baba, please forgive me for troubling you with my testing/doubting mind and I am ever grateful to You for showing Your presence. Baba, we pray to You to keep us at Your feet all the time and shun all our pride. Today all that we have is by Your grace and nothing else. We owe our lives to You. Please bless us and all Your devotees and give everyone immense Shraddha, Saburi, Happiness and Peace. Om Sai Ram.
