Shirdi Sai Baba Devotee Sruti from the USA says: This is Sruti. I am really thankful to Hetal Ji for giving us this opportunity to share Sai Baba’s miracle with worldwide devotees. Also, please don’t disclose my email id and forgive me if there are any mistakes in my English.
I am blessed to be at the feet of Sai Baba since childhood as my parents were strong devotees of Baba. There are countless incidents in my life where Baba held my hand and made me go ahead in my life. The only word which is always there at the tip of my tongue is BABA. Truly to say I have a habit of calling Him TATA (which means grandfather). I got used to it since the age of ten as I used to feel Baba as an old man by seeing His pictures. Baba tests His devotees to make them strong, but He is always with us like a mother who always holds the hand of her child with care and affection.
Complete surrender is what Baba wants from His devotees and for this, He goes on testing us. But we can never understand God and His will. Our work is only to believe in God and surrender Him completely. I want to narrate the power of Sai Baba Vrat Katha and how it changed my life. I would like to narrate a recent experience (September 14th, 2012) with Baba who has helped us in the toughest and most troublesome times. It was at the age of five when one of my aunts gave me a new year calendar greeting card, which has a Shirdi Sai Baba photo on it. I didn’t know that He is GOD and I should pray to Him. But somehow this was the point where Baba asked me to come to His Sharan. I got attached to the photo and used to keep that with me. From that day, I am attached to swami as a family member. I offer Him as prasadam whatever I eat and feel Baba as a friend, guide, and guru.
As years went on, I came to know about Shirdi Baba and used to always chant Baba. I would like to narrate a recent incident that happened in my life and how Baba helped us to come out of the situation. It has been a year and 10 months, I got married and even it is Baba’s prasadam to me. We stay in the USA, and here it is very common for the IT people about the project and change in their job until we get a green card over here. It has been two years since my husband is in the USA and 1 1/2 years for me. We were very happy in our married life and also my in-laws visited our place. Everything was going great.
Suddenly one day my husband came to me and told me that he lost his job and from the next day he is on the bench. I still remember it was very shocking news to both of us. We didn’t have even single money in our savings to spend the rest of the days until he gets a new job. We not only had the problem of a job loss, but also we had our work permit extension next month and in the case of not having a job it cannot be done. We cannot stay in the USA without a work permit. So all our situations were messed up. It was a very big test of Baba to us. We didn’t have sleep for about 40 days. I was continuously praying and praying, but nowhere we were able to see a ray of hope. My husband was giving the interviews but was not getting any positive reply. This all went about a month and14 days and now we had only 10 days left to file our work extension. I was completely immersed in doing all possible types of pooja asking for help from God. Then in the Indus ladies forum, I came to know about Sai Baba Vrat Katha and thought to perform this pooja with great devotion and belief surrendering myself to Baba.

I started this pooja on September 13th, 2012 with great devotion and had kept a fast that day. I was expecting good news too soon. On Sept 14th, 2012 when my husband came to lunch, he told me that there are no more hopes for us to stay at this place and we had to prepare ourselves to move to India next week Sept 21st, 2012. I cried before Baba said, “Is this the miracle that You wanted to show me, Baba?” I thought He gave me the answer to my prayers that we have no more work left in the USA and have to move to India. However, I felt this is God’s will as to what to happen and when to happen. I was upset for a few hours and then told Baba, I am ready for whatever decision You take for us. Also, prayed to Him that we have credits in the USA and need to clear that. I asked Him to show me some way so that we can leave for India next week. I didn’t understand how to say all these to my parents and in-laws as it would be a great shock to them.
It was around six in the evening. My husband came home and was speaking to one of his friends on the phone regarding an interview. I didn’t disclose sadness on my face and had prepared his favorite dish for the evening. He suddenly took me out to the same place where he told me the shocking news that he lost his job. There he told me, “Sruti, Can you expect why did I get you here? I got a job in a very good company”. I was shocked, tears rolled down my eyes and it was an unbelievable situation for me. I kept on listening to him whatever he was saying, but my mind was near BABA. Things changed in just two hours. I am thankful and grateful to BABA. I am doing the fifth week of Guru Katha and there are four more weeks left. God is always with us holding our hands and showing us the right path. We have to surrender ourselves completely with belief. Bolo Sadguru Sainath Maharaj ki Jai!!!!
