Sai Brother Udit Ji from India says: Hi Hetal Ji, I came across your site one month back and reading some of the devotees experience really feels good. I keep on watching all your posts and it gives immense pleasure in going through the site. I thought of sharing one experience what I experienced. Here it is.
In 2011 October last, I met one of my friend in Bhubaneswar. She was an ardent devotee of Baba. She does everything in consultation with Baba. After meeting her, what I felt I don’t know, but while returning home, I went to Baba temple. From that day, I was really dragged by Baba and I started reading Sai Satcharitra everyday and lighting lamps (two lamps signifying Shraddha and Saburi). I started going to Baba Temple every Thursday and my faith in Baba increased drastically. I was going through lot of problems and after discussing with her had faith that Baba will wipe out of all problems of mine one by one slowly.
I had my house warming ceremony to be held in Jan. So I took salary advance of 20 K and with Baba’s grace the house ceremony finished properly. Even while purchasing things as a part of the pre-requisite for the Pooja, I saw a photo of Baba and was thinking of taking the photo and placing it in Pooja. Suddenly, my younger sister told me to take that particular photo as it was a very lively photo. So, we took that and placed it in Pooja. There were a lot of problems, but with Baba’s blessings, all things shorted out on time and things went nicely. Then I returned to my work, but one thing was striking out in my mind that I will get very less salary next month and how will I manage all my liabilities. I got my salary in February and found that to my surprise I got 18 K more than my present salary. Then I found that I got the variables salaries on that month and also unexpectedly I got one Employee Referral Bonus. Previously I referred one friend and her profile got rejected. Then somehow she got a call and joined. Then when I pinged her, she told me that she is leaving the company. Doesn’t it seem like a miracle? I felt like the person joined for three months only and Baba had sent her to help me. This is how it happens when you trust Baba completely and He takes care of all your problems. Lot of similar things happened and whenever I am getting any problems, I am not getting tensed and am not afraid. I have faith in Baba and am sure He will definitely do what’s correct only. I am very much thankful to my friend because of whom I regained my lost faith in Baba. And I will pray Baba that she won’t face any problems and Baba will help her always in solving her problems. Because of her only, I had a nice Shirdi Darshan last month as she only told me that you go you will feel good after having Darshan and Baba had helped her and also He will help me always. Thanks Baba for sending such a nice friend in my life and please give her the strength to fight all odds in her life and may all her dreams and aspirations get fulfilled.
Sai will come to your help whenever required:I was staying in Mysore for the last one year. After coming to Mysore, I never go to temple, which is hardly 200 meters from my house. My faith in God was reducing day by day. Still every day, I used to lit an agarbati in front of my God in my house and then go to office. I remember Shivratri in 2011, when I went to temple, but it was so rush that I prayed from outside and without having Darshan, I came back. I met my friend and after that I went to Shirdi Sai Temple and praying Baba every day. This year just before Shivratri, after praying Baba, I encountered one incident after which, my faith increased. I was coming from Office one day and that too on Monday. When the bus crossed the Shiva Temple, I heard a bell ringing. I don’t know what stuck my mind, I decided to go to the Temple on that day and have Shiva Parvati Darshan. So next stop, I got down from the Bus and went to the temple. Before entering the temple, I thought If there would have been a Baba statue inside the Temple, how good it would be. Thinking of that, I hold my hands and prayed in front of the Idols of Hanuman, Ganesh Ji and Shiva and Parvati. After praying when I woke up, I found an old lady sitting in one corner of the temple reading a book. Suddenly my eyes were stuck to see a nice photo of Baba smiling in the right side of the book. What I was thinking about Baba, just Baba read my mind and came in front with His Photo. What a wonderful experience was that. I am staying alone and whenever I am tensed feel like Baba is with me and taking care of everything and guiding me in the correct path. Thanks Baba for everything. Om Sai Ram
