Baba’s Help During Travel
Anonymous Devotee from USA says: Dear Hetal Ji, Thanks for giving us hope to live in this world full of troubles. My day really starts with reading experiences of Our Baba. Please do not publish my name or email id. Baba has helped me lots of times in my life, once I came to His Sharan. But still sometimes, when difficulties come in my life, I lose my Saburi, my faith shakes and keep doubting Baba. I know I am hurting Baba, I apologize for the same. This experience is lengthy. Because I felt Baba’s presence throughout and did not want to miss anything. This incident happened recently.
Since it is school vacation in USA, we decided to go for a vacation. First time, we were traveling, by car to a place called South Padre, TX. I got severe stomach upset, due to acidity and badly wanted to use the restroom on the way to some gas station. But our road got blocked due to some accident, nearly 30 meters we were on the road, with no way to get out fully packed with cars. I was praying to Sai ma to let me out of this mess. Mean time I saw a car on the next lane right side of me, has a picture of Jesus moving a herd of cattle. I usually feel relieved when I see a picture of Jesus on the cars. I was feeling better, and within on time, somehow the traffic got cleared and we were able to catch the next restaurant and able to eat food, and use their rest room. I thanked Baba for His help.
The next surprise was we booked a lodge to stay, and when we parked the car I saw a church on the opposite side of the lodge. And by the time, we got the key to our room. I saw that our room was just facing the entrance of the church. I felt better, as if Baba guarding us all the time. Our second trip was for a week, to fly to Washington, stay there for 3 days, take a rental car, travel to New Jersey and New York. In Washington, there was another surprise, the hotel people had a shuttle to the nearby subway station, so that we can catch the train on time and go to our destinations. When we return back, they gave their number to us asking us to call them, so that they can send the shuttle to pick us up. In the evening, we were tired by our trip, and when I was sitting in the train, I was telling Baba that I am so tired. I wanted to go to the hotel soon, and take rest. But again I have to call the hotel people and ask them to send shuttle and wait in the station till they come to pick us up. But when we got down from the station, as a surprise the shuttle was there. It came to drop some guests there, and it was about to leave, and my husband waived the driver. And so he immediately stopped for us, and without any waiting, we reached to our hotel. Same thing happened in New Jersey hotel. We thought of visiting New York by catching train. Parking in New York is great difficulty. Here also the hotel provided the shuttle. In the evening, we got out of the train, and saw the shuttle waiting in the station. We thought as usual it came to drop guests from the hotel to the station. But I was surprised to hear the driver telling us he was send to pick someone up. And he was waiting there for a long time and could not see anyone, and he was calling the receptionist staff asking her why she sent him to the station. But she said, I told you to pick some guests from the hotel and drop them to the station. But I did not ask you to go to the station. But he was telling us that I am not able to understand. I heard clearly asking me to go to station and pick the guests. Now she says different. But I know who was at the back of this. Another incident happened is our flight ticket had different seat numbers. Since the flight was full. My husband, before the time of the boarding, requested the staff there to please change the flight seats, so that we can all sit together, with our child. But she said, we will see. After sometime it so happened, we heard an announcement that, something happened to their computer, the seats numbers are messed up. And you know Hetal Ji, when we got our new tickets, seat numbers were all together. And my son never allows me to sit near the window seat, but this time he never made a fuss. He said mom you can sit near the window and I am fine sitting in the middle. Also in New Jersey, we searched GPS for Indian food, since we were tired eating burgers. We found one Indian restaurant and we ate nice dosa and my favorite tamarind rice. Also I saw the picture of our Baba. Again Baba saved my Husband from car Accident. We hired a rental car during our trip to travel within the states. Also while returning from our trip, to our home, there was some storm. Actually the storm started while we were inside the flight and when it was in the runway. So we had to wait to get clearance to take off. One point, the captain said that sometime we may have to cancel the flight, and will let us know. But after waiting for 45 minutes, our plan got rerouted to our home place. Thanks Baba for helping us, saving us during our trips.
Miracle At OfficeDivyaa Ji from India says: I am a staunch devotee of Shirdi Baba and off late have seen so many miracles happen to me. After marriage, my husband, who was not known of Baba, started going through so many miracles of Baba. He too joined me in believing Him. Shirdi Baba has been with us in every move we make from the day I vision Him. I have plans of visiting Shirdi in September and off late I have joined work in a MNC and undergoing training for 6 months. I was advised not to take any holidays for that period as I might lose many training sessions and was told that I should not. Since I joined only in July last week, I was not ready to talk to my manager about leaves on the first week. So I left everything to Baba and requested Him with my prayers that my team leader, whom I had not met till today, should be able to understand, who Baba is. When I told him that I need a holiday for 3 days, he should know who Baba is and how important it is that one travels to go meet Baba. I also wished and told Baba that he should be His devotee. I happened to meet my team leader yesterday, did not get to talk of Baba or anything related to God nor did not see any pictures or statue of Baba in his cabin. So I kept quite. But behind my head, I was still praying. And today, after days of discussion was over, my team leader told me that he will be late tomorrow to office. I asked why and he said that tomorrow is his father’s birth day and would want to go to Baba's temple. Oh My God, I was taken back with shock and asked him if he was a devotee of Baba. He was so strong in his comment that he said “I am a staunch believer of Baba”. I am not still able to believe this and have started feeling like Baba is my friend and I am living with Him day in and day out. I pray that He blesses me and my family with all happiness and He lives with me forever. I surrender to Him with all my faith and believe that He is the doer. He is just simply cute and miraculous.
Amazing Experience While Travelling To AirportIndia says: Hello Helal Ji, I am an ardent devotee of Baba and would take this time to thank Him for blessing all of us and being with us steadily. Please do not disclose my identity. The experience, which I am going to describe, is a short one. I request you to post it. I reside in Bangalore and had to travel to Delhi on a business purpose. Usually I take an airport bus to reach the airport. I had to catch a flight to Delhi and the departure time was 11:40 AM. I left my house at 9 AM, that day it was raining. So I hired an Auto to reach the airport bus pick up point, but I was stuck in traffic and I was tensed about reaching the airport on time. I had lost all hopes of reaching on time and thought I will miss my flight and meanwhile I was praying to SAI and kept telling myself that He will take care of. The time was almost nearing 9:45 AM and I was 30 kms away from Airport. So I had lost all the hopes of reaching on time and thought I will definitely miss the flight. Finally the Auto driver dropped me to the airport bus pickup point and the time was 9:50 AM. I got down from the rickshaw with the pale face and was stood there in the bus stop. I don’t know from where an airport taxi popped up. The driver came and asked me whether I am going to airport. I was stunned for a moment. I said YES and asked him how much and by what time he will reach me the airport. He said 500 RS and will reach by 35 minutes. I thanked SAI and just got into the cab without speaking much and wasting no time. Then the driver dropped me to the airport. I just kept on thanking our SAI and thought that this taxi was sent by our beloved SAI. I reached airport by 10:30 AM, 1 hour before the departure. This was just another unbelievable experience to me. He is there everywhere and all the time besides His devotees. SAI's Devotee.
