Om Sai Ram. Jai Sai Ganesha.
Sairam Hetal Ji. Many thanks for working so well on this blog. You deserve the very best in life and I am sure Baba will always be showering His special blessings on you and your family. I would like to share a few of my recent experiences of Baba’s blessings on me, my family and friends. Please do keep me anonymous. And name me as ‘Baba’s daughter’. I will feel blessed to be called so!
- 1. Baba made my fiancé’s bachelors party a small affair
My fiancé is not a Baba Devotee and I am sincerely praying Baba to take him in His fold and make him His strong Devotee. When our wedding dates approached, my fiancé’s colleagues asked him for a Bachelors party and he agreed. I do not like drinks and was praying Baba to let it not happen. It involved a big expense and which I considered a waste. But I was also feeling that it would look bad if he refused his colleagues and somehow he was also interested. Anyhow later I left it on Baba. And it so happened that, they had this party at home, with only light drinks and food. My fiancé drank a little and we were also saved from more expenses. Earlier I used to force him not to drink at all to quit smoking etc. This had created a lot of tension between us. Now I have left it to Baba to make him realize and inspire him to quit on his own. My prayers to Sai Deva to always guide my husband (we are married now) in the right path in life, and make him His devotee soon, so that we worship Baba together and share His Leelas and be blessed by Him as a happy couple. I am sure it will happen soon and I need all of your prayers and best wishes. May Baba bless everyone.
- 2. Baba cured my friend
One of my friends was not well and the doctor suspected that she might be having Dengue. And so they collected her blood samples for test. She is a Baba Devotee herself and she prays to Baba regularly and takes His UDI. When she told me of her illness and the tests, I thought in my heart that she should not get Dengue, as she is already of weak health and stays in a hostel away from her family. There is no one there for her to take good care of her in her hostel. So, I prayed to Baba to protect her from big diseases and to cure her fever soon. I also thought to post it in case she did not get Dengue. And our merciful Baba heard us. Her tests were negative and it was just a mild infection and she recovered soon. Baba’s UDI is the best medicine and can cure everything. Sorry Baba for posting this experience late. Please do bless my friends always. Bless us all. We love you and need you in every step of our life.
- 3. Baba got us our money
This is another experience of Baba’s grace. My husband had lent money to one of his seniors some time before our wedding. This senior was not much in contact and suddenly he came in touch and in a few days he asked my husband for some money, and my husband lent him 40K. After that he was again not much in touch and since our wedding preparations had started by then, and we needed money. So my husband decided to ask him for the money. But somehow, the senior used to put off our request saying that he had financial issues and will refund soon. I was a little worried since we did not have any proof of lending him money and feared if we will get it back smoothly. I used to keep praying to Baba to help us get our hard-earned money back. Once I prayed Baba that we should not get no for answer, and that day when my husband asked him for the money, he readily agreed and transferred the money the next day. We were so relieved! Baba got us our money back, and taught us a lesson to not lend money to people on whom we are not confident. These days I take many decisions by asking Baba through chit method. Thanks a lot Baba for getting us our money back without much hassle. Baba never disappoints us.
- 4. I got Baba’s Darshan on phone
My Mother-in-law expired recently, and so we are not supposed to visit any temple for a year. Before I got married, I used to visit Baba’s temple daily for almost 4-5 months, as it was very near to my hostel. So I was missing visiting Baba in His temple after my marriage and I was praying Him to somehow give Darshan. I was saying to Baba, that, what if we could not come to see Him. He could come in our dreams, come in the form of Photographs, etc. He could give us His Darshan anyhow. So, one Thursday, one of my friends had been to the same Baba’s temple and called me from there. She told me that she felt like I was missing Baba as I could not visit Him, and so she said I could have Darshan on phone. She went near Baba’s idol and made me hear the Bhajans being played in the temple. She went to all the places in the temple (Dhuni, Baba’s paduka’s , the Stupa, Dattatreya Ji’s temple etc ) and told me to pray at each place. I was overwhelmed with joy, and was so happy. It was like I really was in the temple in person. There was no difference. May Baba bless my friend immensely as she did such a noble thing. Thanks Baba for hearing my prayer and granting such a nice Darshan.
- 5. Baba protected me from health issues
I used to pass yellow color urine for almost 3-4 months continuously and so decided to see the doctor. I was scared as to what it might be and was constantly praying Baba to protect me from any severe health issue. The doctor ruled out jaundice after tests and suspected some infections, and so suggested for a urine test and culture. I was a little scared hearing about the tests. However, with faith in my Gurudev Sai Baba, I went ahead and got the tests done. In the two days that I had to wait for the test results to come, I was sincerely praying Baba to give me good news and protect me from illness. And Baba heard me! The doctor examined the reports and said that there was nothing to worry, as the reports were normal. He said that sometimes depending on what we eat and body conditions, it is usual to get yellow urine and that it will be normal with time. I was so happy. Baba protected me form any major health issue. I am still waiting for the yellow urine to stop and am taking Baba’s UDI daily with water. I am sure it will be cured soon. Thanks Baba. Please bless us all with good health and long life. Keep us cheerful always! Love You a lot.
- 6. Baba made me watch Ramayan with my husband
Once while asking some question in the Question and Answer website, Baba asked me to read “Ramayan”. And so I downloaded a PDF of Ramayan and started reading it. Look at Baba’s Leela after that. After I started reading Ramayan, I got to know that the Ramayan series had just started on Zee TV and so I started watching it also, and I took it as Baba’s blessings that He made me know about the TV series of Ramayan and He too wanted me to watch it. Then on one Sunday, we had a guest visiting us at home and I could not watch Ramayan episode in the morning, even though I wanted to. I got busy preparing lunch for the guest. All went well that day, and Baba helped me to prepare nice Chicken Biryani for the very first time along with good chicken curry. It was Baba rather who cooked it all on my behalf, as I wanted Him to cook lunch for us like He used to cook and feed people when He was there in Shirdi. And so, the food was awesome and I didn’t feel like I had cooked it. So, after a good lunch, our guest left and we were relaxing at home. In the evening, my husband and me, we switched on the TV and sat to watch. While changing channels, we saw that day’s Ramayan episode being aired again and so I requested my Husband that let us watch Ramayan. It was Baba’s Leela and blessing again that He made us watch that day’s episode, which I could not see in the morning as I was busy. It was purely His wish, and so we could watch it, since I was not aware of the repeat telecast and timings. And usually my husband does not watch mythological serials, but it was a wonder that he also watched with me, showing keen interest and was answering my questions on Ramayan. He was also stressing on learning all the good teachings of Ramayan. I was really happy that day and thanked Baba from the bottom of my heart for this sweet Leela of His. Thanks a lot Baba, may You keep showering Your grace and blessings on all of us like this always, and do please make us worthy of receiving Your Blessings!
- 7. Baba settled the marriage of my friend
Baba is the best and He is so merciful and loving. He cannot see His kids in pain or worried. He settles the things at the right time. One of my PG mates, a little older to me, who I treated like my elder sister, was in deep trouble mentally, as her marriage was not getting settled since a long time. Her family members were also equally tensed, more so her parent and she was more pained seeing her loved ones worried. She resorted to Baba’s feet and started getting close to Baba and was praying deep from her heart to settle her marriage. Baba used to show her little gestures of hope in the form of His photos and she used to hang on with faith. Finally the miracle happened, and Baba settled her marriage all of a sudden and that too with His Devotee. That was the best part, since my friend wanted a Baba’s devotee as her husband. She was so very happy, and I was also thrilled seeing Baba’s Leela. Baba also did some nice things in connection with her wedding, in which I played a small part, by Baba’s grace! Coincidentally, it so happened that when she told me the news of her wedding getting fixed that was also my last day of “Shri Guru-Charitra” Parayan. Since she was moving out of Bangalore due to her wedding, we decided that she would come to my home the next day for lunch. After that discussion with her, at night, when I read the last chapters of “Shri Guru-Charitra”, it was mentioned that it is really nice to feed some persons after the Parayan. Now see Baba’s Leela. Since my Mother-in-law has recently expired, I cannot go to temple and feed any poor people and offer Prasad to Baba. So, Baba only arranged for my friend to have lunch at my place, just the day after my Parayan! How wonderfully well Baba plans and it all unfolds at the right time! So, we met and rejoiced and had a nice lunch at my place. Baba also inspired us to make a hand-made invitation card for her wedding to give to Baba. So, at my home, my friend and another of our friend made her wedding invitation card by drawing Ganesh Ji’s picture and attaching Baba’s photo on the card. We were happy about this unplanned activity happening, and marveled at Baba’s Leela at how He got the first wedding invitation hand-made by us! My friend gave that to Baba in His temple and invited Him whole-heartedly to grace her wedding and bless her. I pray to Baba to bless her with a very happy and blissful married life and to surely attend her wedding. I am sure Baba will definitely attend her wedding and bless the couple! Also, I wanted to give her some gift after the lunch, while she was leaving. Since I did not have much time and could not plan well. I had not purchased anything for her, and was feeling bad that I had nothing to give her as a best wishes gift ahead of her wedding. But again, Baba came to my rescue. I had a new “Shri Vishnu Sahasranamam” book at home, which I had kept to give my Mother, whenever she would come to visit me in the future. Somehow, Baba inspired me to give it to her and needless to say, that was the best gift for her wedding. So, I gave it to her and she was really happy to get it. I also felt satisfied that she did not go empty-handed from my home ( my home is not my home, but my Baba’s home and whatever I feel I do, it’s actually that Baba does everything ). I am sure, my friend (or my elder sister as I treat her) will be blessed with a happy married life and Baba will fill her life with joy! Baba is just awesome! We love you a lot Gurudev Dattatreya!
- 8. Baba is always listening to us and hears even the smallest wish
My Husband is into photography and he takes it as a serious hobby. We always wanted to do street photography and click photographs of people in the streets, i.e we wanted to capture the day-to-day life in a city. But since normally people are apprehensive about being clicked by strangers and do not entertain unknown people, my husband never expressed any interest to go out on street photography. Somehow, I was very interested in it and hoped that we will get to click nice pictures if we ventured out. So I prayed to Baba sincerely with faith and sought His help and blessings for the street photography. With Baba’s grace, my husband also somehow agreed to go. So we started on our mission to take random pictures of the people in the city and prayed to Baba, to help us get people’s cooperation. We went on our bike, and after going some distance, we saw a family doing some painting work on statues. We thought of it as a good setting to take pictures and so stopped our bike there. My husband proposed that I go and start taking to them and seek their permission to take pictures. So with Baba by my side (in my heart always), I went ahead and spoke to the elderly lady working on a statue of Shri Krishna. She spoke quite cheerfully and allowed us to take pictures. Baba worked this miracle for us, as we were not expecting such easy approval from strangers. So, my husband started clicking happily, while I got friendly with the family, (Uncle, Aunty and their small kids). They are 9 kids in total, and 1 kid was sick. He could not walk and had to be lifted. That made me sad. May Baba work some wonder and cure the kid soon and bless the whole family and keep them happy always! The best part of Baba’s Leela was yet to come. This family actually makes idols of God’s from Plaster of Paris and sells them. They also renovate old statues. So, while talking, the Uncle suddenly went in and came out with a stereotype of our Shirdi Sai Baba’s idol. It was made of rubber, from which he could make many Baba’s idols. I was speechless on seeing Baba there! Why would that Uncle go in and fetch from their tent Baba’s idol for me to see and rejoice! Was this not a sweet Leela of our Baba to reaffirm my faith in Him, that He is hearing the smallest of our prayers and granting us each of our true and innocent, good wishes! I was really happy, and requested the Uncle to make a Sai Baba’s idol for me, and I am yet to go and purchase it from him. He gladly agreed. We clicked pictures of their family and have taken prints of it, and will give it to them on our next visit to their place. I am sure they will be very happy on receiving it! We will try to bring a little smile on their faces and so I have thought at Baba’s inspiration to take some food items for the kids too. And yes, my husband found an old idol of Baba there, which was placed on a wall. It was a little broken, but he has taken pictures of that idol of Baba and those pictures of my Baba are awesome, even if the idol is an old one and a little broken, with the paint fading! I love you a lot Baba, my eyes are filled with tears as am writing this. I am planning to send that picture to a photo competition, and am sure it will be declared the winning photograph! And with Baba by our side always, my trust says we will win and get our first photography prize! I have already told my husband that this picture of Baba will fetch us our first prize, and am sure my Baba will not let my faith down! I shall share that experience soon by Baba’s grace!
