Thank You Saibaba
Sai Sister Bhuvana from India says: I want to share my experience how my son got admission in school because of my beloved Shirdi Saibaba. Om Sai Ram. Really I thank Baba for helping my son to get admission in Yuvabharathi Public School, Coimbatore. Getting admission in that school is really tough. They will have interview and shortlist the candidates. Normally my parents used to tell that Thursday is not a lucky day for us. But I was undergoing fasting for my Sainath. So I strongly believed that He will save me.
On Thursday, we went to school. The interviewer asked simple questions to my son. But he never answered any questions. He used to talk well in home, but outside he never used to talk with strangers. I was very much worried about his admission. The interviewer said that we will let us know the results by 3 pm on the same Thursday. So went back home and decided to come to school by 3 pm to see the result. In the mean time I cried and prayed to Baba that he should get admission in that school. Then by 3 pm, I reached his school and very happy to see my son’s name in the selected list. I was so excited and really felt happy. Then I realised its really a miracle of Baba.
Some of the students did not get selected though they answered questions. But I felt very happy because my son never answered any question, but they selected him. It is all happened because of my lovable Sainatha. Om Sai Ram. I have faith and belief and pray truly to Sai. Definitely you will succeed one day. Om Sai Ram. Om Sai Sri Sai Jaya Jaya Sai. Om Sai Namo Namaha Sri Sai Namo Namaha Jaya Jaya Sai Namo Namaha Om Sadguru Sai Namo Namaha.
Om Sai Ram
Anonymous Devotee from India says: I am living in Chennai, India. When I was young I use to see in my uncle’s they worship Baba more gracefully and devotionally. I would like to share my first experience that was showed by Baba. I was into a severe family problem and I was so confused what to do and what decision to make. It was a Baba’s day. I want to Baba temple in Mylapore and I learnt Sai Satcharitra and I prayed to Baba. To be frank, I was totally blank what to ask to Baba because I was totally confused by the decision made by me was correct or wrong. I was crying on Baba’s lotus feet and asked Baba what to do. It was all about my life. Now I will come to the point how Baba gave answer.
One person was standing in front of me in the queue. Her turn came first. She gave loose flowers on Baba’s idol. When my turn came, I worshiped Baba. After getting blessing from His lotus feet, usually I will take flowers from Him and I keep it safe. Likewise that day, when I tried to take the flower (rose), which was given to the lady before me. It was loose flower without tying to the rope. But when I tried to take the flower, I got tied in the rope. From this I got the answer that Baba wants me to live tied life and He doesn’t want me to live single. I was so happy. I came to know that Baba’s blessing would be always in my life and He always glow my life forever. I don’t have words to praise my Baba’s miracle. I want to dedicate my life do bakthi seva to my Baba. Thank You Baba for showering me Your blessing.
Shirdi And Akkalkot
Anonymous Devotee from Singapore says: Firstly I want to thank volunteers, who are driving this initiative of sharing Sai Baba Devotees experience. Please do not disclose my email ID or name. Please edit wherever is necessary. I apologize in advance for any errors I have made.
Om Sai Ram. I would like to share one of my recent experience that happened in Dec 2012. For quite few months earlier, I was planning for a trip to Shirdi, Pandarpur(Vithoba), Akkalkot (Swami Samarth) and Pandapur (Narasimha Saraswati). I was quite excited about trip and have read so many literatures, articles about various miracles that had happened at above place. Guru Charitra is one of them which influenced lot to visit above place.
Trip was planned to be end of December, coinciding with Dec 25. Plan was to take 4 days travel and leave on Friday from Bangalore and visit Pandharpur first, then go to Akkalkot , Gangapur and on way back, visit to Shirdi. First plan was to take my parents (Dad – 80+ and Mom – 70+) , along with my wife and kid (6+). However lot of discussions went regarding travel of my parents as they were old and place was cold. Although I booked flight ticket for all of us, we were contemplating if to take parents or not. It was discussed almost every hour and never reached any decision. Finally we decided that we will not take parents and cancelled their tickets.
Meanwhile my wife started getting unwell and we were confused if we should also cancel our trip as well. While I was sad, I know unless it is written (on fate) that we will visit, no point in trying. I believe for any visit to pilgrimage, time has to come. Our opposite neighbor (also Sai Devotee), told us why don’t we go only to Shirdi as Shirdi is all (Pandharpur, Gangapur, Akkalkot) . We thought about it and I truly believe Shirdi is all. However it was my desire to see above places. Finally we agreed that instead of going to all places, we will just go to Shirdi and come back in 2 days. I was disappointed that I am unable to visit Akkakot, Pandapur, Pandarpur etc. However I got reconciled to the fact that I need to take care of wife’s health and what is destined to happen will happen.
Finally tickets were rebooked and plan was to travel to Shirdi by taking flight from Bangalore to Pune on Saturday afternoon and return back by Sunday night. Our flight was at 5:30 pm on Saturday. We booked Meeru Cabs (Local Bangalore Cab Service) at 2 PM on Saturday. We were all set. Meeru drivers called us that cab is ready at our entrance.
Here is the climax – We (Wife, Kid and I) kept our luggage in trunk and we got into car. What do we see?? We see a small poster (hanging) in front of driver seat with Shirdi Sai Baba photo. Well, we all know, it is easy to see Shirdi Sai Baba photo on back side of van, car and all these days. I hope you have seen pictures, where there will be two pictures, you will see one picture from one angle and you will see another picture from another angle – both on the same side. So in Meeru cab, I see Sai Baba from one angle and “Swami Samarth from Akkalkot” in another angle. We were speechless! YES, on day of our travel to Shirdi, we see Sai Baba and Swami Smarth photo in our cab. It is easy to find “Shirdi Sai Baba” picture, but not Samarth picture in Bangalore. It just reinforced fact and Sai Baba was giving message that – don’t worry, you are visiting Shirdi, which is same as Akkalkot. We were so happy and cherishing those moments while we were in cab. I took picture of the snap.
I think there was similar experience described in Satcharitra that a devotee wanted to visit Akkalkot, when Samarth or another God comes in dream of devotee saying that Samarth is now in Shirdi and devotee should visit Shirdi. Om Sai Ram.
