Baba’s Miracles Leading To My Daughters College Admission
Sai Sister Monika Ji from USA says:
I am Baba’s ardent devotee, who counts her blessings and feel truly blessed to be called a Sai Beti. I lost both my parents, who were also Baba’s devotees and my sister Neeru, who has contributed to your column several times. I am settled in USA for the last 22 years. I would like to thank you for doing such a noble deed and for strengthening our belief that Sai Baba is our saviour and our Father by bringing us close to all the other devotees. Jai Sai Ram.
Baba has His ways of doing the miracles and making us feel so blessed. What I am going to write will raise goose bumps on your arm. It is a daunting task to apply for college admissions in the USA. I had been praying to Baba to please make my daughter get admission in a college that He thought was good for her. I personally wanted her to stay close to home and that did not leave us with many options as the only good colleges in New York are ivy leagues (similar to IIT in India), where admission is impossible.
My daughter had a good average and although her college entrance test scores were good, but they were not that amazing. Her activities in school were good, but again not that amazing. So she was a good candidate to get admission in a good school, but not to get admission in an ivy league.
Here is a chain of events that took place. Baba already had a plan in place for us. My daughter wanted to apply for a science research program during summer vacation, but the admissions were closed. We were so late because we were so busy with the school year that we missed the deadline. Baba sent a person to us, who made it possible for my daughter to do a research project. This opportunity was very important as any kind of research work would be an added advantage to her getting the admission.
When the school opened after the summer vacation in September, she was given a chance to be an office bearer for so many clubs that she was involved in. Again she needed all of those positions because she had to add them to her resume to make it look good. In the meantime, she retook the college entrance exam on Oct 27th, but the result was due to come out on November 13th. The deadline to apply for early decision to an ivy league was November 1st. There was no way we could meet the deadline because we were waiting for the entrance exam score to apply.
Now the unthinkable happened. NY was hit by the worst hurricane storm ever. We lost our power for 2 weeks and became immobile. We had lost power from Oct 29th to November 11th. A Baba’s devotee approached us and told us to attend an engineering forum at the Columbia University and I brushed it aside as I thought it would be a waste of time for me. But Baba’s devotee insisted and I relented in, not realizing how this event was such an important turning point. It was Baba’s Will that He wanted us to follow. On November 12th, we attended an engineering forum at Columbia University, where my daughter wanted to apply for admission. In the forum, we found out that we could still apply and the deadline had been extended to November 16th due to the hurricane. By Baba’s grace my daughter’s entrance exam result came out on November 13th, well in time for her to apply and her result was excellent. We finished sending her application on November 15th, which happened to be a Thursday. On December 6th (again a Thursday), the result was out and she had been accepted to the most prestigious university, the Columbia University in the School Of Engineering. I cannot imagine this being a possibility without Baba’s intervention. When I look back at how the events shaped up from the time I prayed to Baba to make it possible for my daughter, my eyes tear up.
I could not be more blessed as both my son and my daughter are studying in NY in good universities and they are close to home. Baba truly made our family’s dream come true. Both my kids are also Baba’s devotees and read the Sai Satcharitra and pray to Baba regularly. I pray to Baba to give His blessings to all of you, who are reading this article and to make your dreams come true like He made ours. Thank you Baba, for all your love and blessings.
My Unbelievable Experience With Sai Baba
Sai Sister Sandhya Ji from India says:
I am a Sai Baba devotee. I stay in India and I am a student. My age is 25 years and I just wish to share my experience so that it can bring a smile on everyone’s face and firm belief in every heart.
We all have our share of problems in life. I have mine too. But problems just come and go. They are not permanent. What is permanent is Sai. What is truth it is ‘Sai’. I am filled with loads of heart taking experiences. One of which I will share with you all.
While reading Sai Satcharitra and doing one week paryanam to make myself calm. I started it on Thursday. And on Monday while coming back, after getting flowers to offer Sai Baba and while entering my house, a boy screamed from behind. I turned back and asked what happened. He said give my some money Sai Baba demands for it. I was wonderstruck. My joys had no bound. I tears of happiness in my eyes and a Jhanki of Baba followed that boy. He pointed out at it and showed me that see Sai Baba is asking for it. I went to the Jhanki and offered some Dakshina. That very day, I read the chapter in Sai Satcharitra, where Sai asks for Dakshina just to take our bad karmas from us. Baba’s love is unconditional. He loves all just feel it. We all are Baba’s children, just make Him yours. Then see the differences, you will experience in your life, the firmness in your life. Whenever good happens, thank to Him. Whenever bad happens, ask Him to take care of it. He is our father and trust me He will because He has to. He is concerned of us than anybody else. Love to all and as always may Sai bless us all.
Please Baba Forgive Me And Please Give My Love Back
Anonymous Devotee from India says:
Hetal Ji, I am from Andhra. Please do not disclose my name and email id. Really you are blessed a lot to be a daughter of Baba Ji. At present, I am facing lot of issues in my personal life. Please feel free to correct if any mistakes. From my childhood, even though I have problems, I am happy only. My graduation classmate (strong believer of BABA) proposed me after my college. When he proposed me, the next minute I have asked him that we belong to different caste how can we marry?
At that time, he knows only that I belong to BC. Then we both are in love for six months. Suddenly one day, there was a problem in his home due to his elder sister, who got married and having problem with her husband. His parents got depressed at that time. He started telling that I can’t marry you because my parents are suffering due to my sister and I can’t do this. He didn’t spoke normally for 3 months. After that he came back to me and told I will make my parents to agree. Then four months went. Everything was very good and I was so happy with him. We met only once in this 1 year because we both will stay in different states due to job. Everything was going on good. One day, he came to know our caste. He knows that our caste name is ******. But he doesn’t know who they are. He came to know that ****** belongs to ****** category. He belongs to Naidu caste. From that minute, onwards he started saying I can’t marry you. If my parents know that I am loving this low caste girl, it means sure they will die. He stopped calling me.
But I know very well that he loves me so much. I came to believe Baba through him only. I love him so much. When I was doing 9 Thursdays Vrat, he use to call me for 15 days. Once that day will be Thursday for sure (but I won’t pick his call). I want him in life. I am praying daily Baba that he only gave him. Then why He took him back from my life. I want him in my life; otherwise I don’t want this life also. But myself I can’t take my life because Baba didn’t give that much boldness to me. He can rule the entire world and He is the saviour from all problems. I strongly believe that if Baba wishes, He can give my lover back. But why he is not giving? From past 6 months, it was like hell to me. I can’t forgot him even Baba is not willing me to forget. Really cast is that much big problem, Hetal Ji. A girl belonging to
low caste (******) should not marry to a high caste guy (******). If Baba blesses me, then everything will be fine.
But why he is not even listening to my prayer. By days passing on, my parents will look alliance for
me. I can’t marry another guy. Even he hurted me lots of times, but still I want him. If Baba shows mercy on me, his parents will also accept my love. But why Baba is not blessing me. That’s why I am praying Baba that if You don’t want to give him back, means no problem but I don’t want this life without him. Baba Ji, You had cured so many members from so many diseases, but why You are not curing the heart disease of me. I am begging Baba please give my happy life back. Even I can’t be happy with any other guy in my life. My lover is telling for sure his parents won’t accept my caste. They may tell they will die if you marry that girl. What can I do except praying to Baba. I did parayanam, Navguruvar Vrat, but why Baba is not showing His mercy on me. Please Sai devotees, pray for me. I don’t know what mistakes are there in my prayer and why Baba is not accepting my prayer.
Babaji, please solve my problem. Please give my lover back in my life. Only You know how much I am struggling. Please Baba, give him in my life. Tell me what I should do? Please Baba, I want my happiness back in my life. Please all my Sai daughters and sons, please pray for me. Baba Ji forgive my mistakes and please forgive my bad karmas. Baba I can’t live without him. Please Baba, I strongly believe You are the only God, who can help me. You only made us together. Please Baba, don’t let him to go away from me. I don’t want this life without him. Please, Baba because of caste don’t separate us. Baba You only gave me the caste and my lover, please don’t take him away from me. I can’t bear that.
