Baba Blessed Me With A Job
Sai Sister Vasanthi Ji from India says: I am Vasanthi Kollimarla. I am blessed to be a servant of Baba from my childhood days. He has been with me at every step of my life and taking care of me. I am happy to share one of my experiences with Shree Sai Baba.
I am an ardent lover of Shirdi Sai Baba. In the year 2005, I finished my graduation and looking for a job in IT field. I tried various options available to me. But all went in Vain. I was very nervous as my Fresher time period was over and next year graduates also got released. At this point of time, I got frustrated and went back to my Native place, leaving the job search. I daily attended Baba’s evening Aarti at a nearby temple and prayed Him for my situation.
After some days, again I went back to Hyderabad on some work and happened to meet a person, who is a Sai devotee. He gave me Sai Satcharitra book and asked me to read “Babu Tendulkar”, “Cholkar”, “Two Goa Gentlemen” story daily. And then I started reading the stories. After 1 month, I suddenly got a message on my mobile stating that, my resume is shortlisted for Infosys and my written test is scheduled on following Sunday. I went to Hyderabad and gave the test. Once test is completed, I was eagerly waiting for results without having lunch. Suddenly, one of the person, who wrote test with me came to me and said, there was a program getting conducted in nearby auditorium by a Swamiji. I went along with him reluctantly. Coincidentally, Swamiji was teaching some stress relieving exercises to the students over there and even I was asked to participate in that. Immediately, I felt my guru's presence. He came all the way and took me there to make me feel comfortable. And soon after the exercises, they asked all of us to have lunch. But as I was not comfortable, I don't want to have food. But then some elderly person came and offered us food. Once everything is done, I went back to my test place to check results. While entering the place, I could notice a vehicle with a huge Sai Baba Photo coming out of that place. And when I checked the results, I could see my name and thereafter, I cleared Interview and could successfully get the job. Thanks to Shree Sai Baba. He always drives and takes care of the people who believe in HIM. I must say that this is one of the Miracles that He showered in my life.
Baba Helped Me To Get Appreciated At My JobUSA says: Dear Hetal Ji, thank you so much for providing this wonderful blog for all Sai Baba devotees from around the world to get together and share our experiences. Please do not disclose my e-mail ID (first name and country are fine). Please make any edits you feel are necessary. A few months back my manager at my work had called me into her office and told me about some mistakes I had made. Some of these mistakes were small ones that many others made, and I felt that I was being singled out for some of these. I also asked some of my other co-workers about these mistakes, and they too felt like these were things they didn't understand and would have probably made the same mistakes. I felt very sad and dejected that whole day and also when driving home. However, sometimes when we are sad and feel like there is no hope at all, Baba comes to us to show us not to worry, and this happened to me as well this time. I usually listen to some music in the car (inspiring songs) thinking of Baba, and just before I was to take my highway exit, a car came in front of me with the license plate saying “SAI W(heart symbol = love)U” and the license plate holder also said “OM SAI RAM” at the top. I have been in USA for my whole life, and never before have I seen this type of license plate ever. The car stayed in front of me after taking my exit and all the way until I came to the street near my home. It was as if Sai Baba gave me a message saying “Don't worry, I am here with you, everything will be ok. I know you feel sad about the job situation, but things will be okay. Just hold on for a little while longer”. The area where we live, we don't have many Indian people, so seeing something like this in our area is very rare. Over the next few weeks, I felt inspired by this sign from Baba and continued my work, and at the grocery store I saw a car with a large Ganesh symbol and another car with a Lord Krishna symbol. It was like Baba was reminding me not to feel down and everything will turn out fine. A few weeks after this incident, I found several mistakes in our work protocols and policies, which I pointed out to my manger (the same one who disciplined me earlier). I was surprised no one found these mistakes earlier, but now I know that Baba must have saved from these mistakes for me to find. My manager thanked me for my careful attention. Then just recently, I had to prepare a case presentation for our clinical meeting. I did some preparation and had to come in on my day off (which I did not mind so much). I gave the presentation in front of our department (about 10-12 people) and thought it went okay (nothing special), but later my manager told me what a wonderful job I did on the presentation and later in another meeting announced in front of our whole department what a great job I did on the presentation and how great it was of me to come in to do this on my off day. Others have come in for this department meeting on their off days and given presentations before, but she never mentioned this in front of everyone like she did for me. I felt very happy and promised Baba that I will write this experience once everything finished. I felt sad at first when this manager told me about these mistakes, but Baba showed me that He is with me and arranged for me to look good in my manager's eyes by giving me the mistakes in our department's procedures to find and also this opportunity for this case presentation, which I thought went okay, but for my manager went very well (it was only due to Baba that she had such high praise for me). Now, my manager asks me to check some policies and procedures because I have done such a good job finding these mistakes before. I know now that although we must endure difficult times, Baba will find ways for us to be happy again, just as he did for me with the policy and procedure mistakes I found, and the case presentation I did, which my manager praised me for so much. Om Sai Ram!
Sai Helps In Averting Bad SituationsAustralia says: Om Sri Sai Ram, I am a humble devotee of Sri Sai Ram and a big fan of this Blog and especially Hetal Ji for creating something special for all the Sai devotees. Please kindly do not disclose my name or email id. I currently live in Australia with my husband and 16 month old daughter. By Baba’s grace, everything is going on well. Sai Baba inspired me to write this experience after I read the news headlines this morning. From the start of this year, we have been trying to enroll our daughter in one of the internationally recognized schools based in Melbourne. As the waiting list is very long, we decided to start the process as soon as she turned one this year. One of our friends suggested that we should enroll our daughter in the same school where their daughter is attending as it is internationally recognized as well as the fees are affordable. So we started looking to buy properties in the area near to that school, so it becomes easier for our daughter in terms of transport and commuting times. My husband was not too keen in doing this, but still supported me by accompanying me in the search for a house. We were not successful as either the price was too high or there was no bus/train connection or we simply did not like the houses that were up for sale. We kept on facing some obstacle or the other and could not proceed further. This search went on for about 2 months, and I thought in my heart of hearts that Baba is trying to tell us something and maybe we should stop looking for houses in this area and eventually drop the idea of enrolling our daughter in this famous school. A month went by and we put in an application at a similar internationally recognized school nearby our area itself although fees are a lot higher than that of the previous school. Both my husband and I forgot about the little unhappy experience of unnecessarily spending our time and energy in searching for houses a few months ago. Yesterday in the office, I heard colleagues mentioning that a very famous school has gone bankrupt and will be closed very soon. I did not pay much attention to this. This morning on our way to work, my husband and I were checking news on our mobiles, when the headline caught my attention. “School owes millions in debt, parents worried”. I got curious and opened the article. And there to my utter disbelief, it was the same school that we were trying desperately to enroll our daughter in earlier this year. The school has gone into voluntary administration because of the debt and neither the Government nor the Banks are willing to offer any financial support to the school. About 1000 students are now very stressed because they have to find admission in other schools and may or may not get into a good school. I thanked Sainath mentally for helping us to avoid this stress by indirectly sending messages not to go ahead. I am ever grateful to Saima for showing us the right path and in turn inspiring me to share this experience. I urge all Sai devotees to keep their eyes and minds open, when starting something new. I feel that Sai communicates messages to us whether a particular situation will be suitable to us or not. If you are not getting good signals, that means Sai already knows that it is not a good path to follow. If you don’t face any obstacles, that means Sai has already given us the blessings to proceed further. My Namaskar to Sainath. Please always take us under Your shadow to protect us from evil and avoid making terrible decisions.
