Baba fulfilled my desire and found us a nice house to stay
I got married recently and just before my wedding, I and my would be husband were hunting for a house to take on rent. I was praying Baba to find us a good house and in my heart I thought that if I get to see Baba’s photo in the house, I could easily feel that it would be the right house for us and so we could choose it. It so happened that the first house we went to see was a nice one and the moment I entered into the house to see it, I saw Baba and Durga Maa’s photo together, placed right at the entrance. I was thrilled and thought that this is the right house. But unfortunately we did not get it, as the owner decided against renting it out and planned to stay himself. So we started looking for more houses. However I did not see Baba’s photo in any of the later houses and finally since we had less time with us and were tired of searching for house, we decided on one house. I saw Ganesh Ji and Hanuman Ji’s photo there. So I thought that Baba is there, since Baba is the form of all God’s. So after our wedding we started staying in that house.
After a few months we realized the defects of that house. It did not get any sunlight and so it used to be always damp and cold inside the rooms. There was no proper ventilation too and a few other drawbacks were there as well. So, we decided to move to a better house. Around this time, to one of my questions on the Question and Answer website, Baba had answered that we would move to a new place to stay and our good time would start. So I took it as Baba’s wish and we started our house hunting. This time also I prayed Baba to give me Darshan in the house that He wanted us to take, so that I could take it as Baba’s signal and we could finalize on a good house easily. In the first few houses that we saw, I did not get to see my Baba. However in one house, I saw other God’s photo. But since that house was out of our budget, we decided against it and continued looking further. To my happiness, I saw Baba in one house after that, but we did not like that house as it was very old modeled. I was very sad and confused. I prayed to Baba, how come I don’t see You in the house that we like, but I see You in the house that I did not like. I just prayed to Him sincerely and left it on His wish to find us a good house as per our liking and needs.
We continued searching and later came across a house that was offered on rent directly by the owner without any broker in between. That meant that if we took that house, we could save an entire month’s rent, which we otherwise would have to pay to the broker. We went to see that house and I was hopeful to see Baba there. The current tenants there were an elderly couple and they greeted us so well and showed us the house. We instantly liked the house, and what added to our interest was that the tenants (the elderly Uncle and Aunty) were very nice and treated us like their own children and showed us the house in details, and we kind of felt that the house was filled with goodwill and positive energy. I asked Aunty to show me where she kept Gods and worshipped, since I wanted to see Baba. However I did not see Baba, though I saw Tirupathi Balaji in her home shrine. I was kind of a little disappointed again on not seeing Baba. But we really liked the house, and Aunty was guiding us so well, telling us when was the auspicious day to shift if we decided to take this house and she was comforting us saying that it is a very good house. They had actually maintained it very well and kept it very clean. So we almost made up our mind to take that house and I comforted myself saying that maybe Baba wanted me to see God in the hearts of that elderly Uncle and Aunty, otherwise why will some strangers guide us so well and shower us with so much love and affection, as if we were their own kids! So I was assured that this was the right house for us and Baba was in that Uncle and Aunt’s form and Baba was only guiding us and suggesting us to take that house. So we spoke to the owner and fixed up the deal.
Now unfolds the best Leela of Baba in connection to the house. After a few days we again visited Uncle and Aunty in that house. They were supposed to vacate in another 20 days and we would had to shift after that. Since we got so much of love from them, we were kind of attracted to them and felt like visiting them again, just like that. So, we went to their home one evening. My husband sat talking to Uncle and I was with Aunty in the kitchen, while she was making us some tea. And I was thrilled with happiness as I saw Baba in her home shrine, which was in the kitchen. It was a small white idol of Baba kept in the shrine. Since it was the evening Puja time, Aunty had lit the Lamp and kept the shrine door open, so I could see my Baba. I prostrated before Him and I told Aunty that I love Baba a lot. On the first day that we came to see the house, the shrine door was closed as it was afternoon time and so I did not get Darshan of my Sai Deva. Anyways, it was Baba’s Leela to make me realize that He is there in the hearts of all and so I should not be searching Him in the form of idols and posters always. And once I had realized that entirely, He gave me His Drashan, and confirmed that this house was indeed good for us and we have His approval to go ahead and take it as our new residence. I was really happy, and called my husband and showed Him, where Baba was. He just smiled.
After that Aunty guided us how to do the Puja on the day of shifting the house and she gave me a few guidelines on the Vastu aspects of the house too. She introduced me to few of the neighbors, so as to make sure we were comfortable, when we moved to this new place, and had known people to ask for help in case we needed. Uncle also guided my husband about many of the apartment related things. We will be indebted to this sweetest Uncle and Aunty always! They have given us so much of Love and affection and blessings! And also, we got to learn many good habits and practices by meeting them. They filled us with positivity and inspired us to be selfless and spread love and cheer. We gained a lot of knowledge on how to lead a meaningful life after meeting them. So many many thanks to them. I just pray to God to bless them with good health, peace, prosperity and happiness. I felt like gifting them something, and since Aunty is so devoted to God’s and I also love God, I gifted her idol of Baba and Ganesh Ji. She was very happy with the present and blessed us. I requested her to suggest me an alternate place, where I could keep my God’s and do the Puja, since we cook non-veg in the kitchen and so I couldn’t keep my God’s in the kitchen as Aunty was doing. She showed me one of the cupboards in the bedroom and told me to keep the God’s there facing to the East and West. I was thankful for her guidance.
Uncle and Aunty vacated on a Thursday and we got the keys from them. I was glad I got the keys to our new house on a Thursday. The very next day was a very auspicious day and so in the morning, as per Aunt’s guidance we came to the new house to do cleaning and Puja. Prior to this, before a day or two a thought came in my mind that, it would be so wonderful if I got Baba’s photo/idol in the new house, when we went to occupy it. But I thought that it was unrealistic to expect it, and maybe I was expecting too much from my Baba, so I dropped the thought. That morning as we were about to start cleaning the house and were just moving about in the rooms, I suddenly opened the cupboard door and to my amazement saw Baba’s small photo in the shelf. I cannot express in words the joy I felt. Along with it, I found two small containers having Turmeric and Kumkum also. I had seen the Turmeric and Kumkum containers the other day while Aunty showed me the shelf, but somehow I had not seen Baba’s photo. I believe it was all Baba’s Leela and I saw His photo as I had wished for, as soon as we took occupancy of the house. I showed Baba’s photo to my husband and told him how I had wished for it secretly and how our most beloved and merciful Baba fulfilled even this small wish/thought of mine. My husband was happy and instinctively opened the door of the adjacent cupboard. To his wonder, he saw a small idol of Ganesha on the shelf. He cheered with happiness and showed me too. I was very very happy, to see my Loving Ganesh Ji also in the new house. My husband loves Ganesh Ji and I also love Him a lot. Now I see all God’s in my Baba also. We both were very happy, since we got the blessings of our favorite God’s on the first day in our new house. And coincidentally I had gifted Aunty Sai Baba and Ganesh Ji’s idols and that day in the morning I had carried only Sai Baba and Ganesh Ji’s idols to this new house to do the Puja, and I had thought I would take all the other God’s and Goddess’s idols later. Is not all this divine miracle of our Beloved Baba! I cannot thank Him enough for all His kind grace and blessings! Love You Baba. You are the best and our life is incomplete without You. Please be with all Your children always and keep Your boon bestowing hands on our heads always! We could do the Puja in the right time with Baba and Ganesh Ji’s grace and the shifting was also smooth. We got timely cooperation from all the people (carpenter, packers and movers, cleaning staff etc), even though there were little problems, but Baba solved everything and the entire shifting happened in time. We hope to have a happy life ahead with Baba by our side always!
Thanks a lot Baba for finding us the kind of house we always wanted to stay in and the best part is we have Your willingness in it and You have chosen this house for us. Please make this Your abode, where peace, prosperity and happiness always dwell. Drive away all ill feeling and fights from our home. Let us live happily in this house and please make it a beautiful home. Please do guide us in the right path of Karma always and make us worthy enough to receive Your kind grace and blessings. As You said, let the good period in our life start soon. Stop all the fights between me and my husband. Make us calm, considerate and patient. You are the binding force between us, so please hold our hands and fill our relationship with pure love, trust and respect for each other. Let us be devoted to each other and bless us to take good care of our families. We so wish to travel abroad and buy our own house soon, since it is so expensive to stay on rent. I am sure You will fulfill all our keen wishes soon. Make my husband Your devotee also Baba. Let our home be Your temple, where we can share your Leelas and do Your Bhajan Kirtan regularly, and live in peace and happiness. I want to take care of my mother and with Your blessings. I hope she comes to stay with us soon. Please forge a strong bond of Love between my Mom and my husband. Let my Husband treat my Mother as his own Mother. Bless us Deva, You know all our needs. Love You Sai Deva. Love You my Sweetest Gurudeva Dattatreya. Love You my Uma-Maheshwar Ji!
May Your blessings reach all of us always Baba. Let there be peace and happiness in every home across the whole wide world. May all the people be happy under Your shelter. Please bless us all with good health, peace, prosperity, wealth and happiness. We love You a lot Baba and many many thanks to You for everything. We surrender at Your Lotus feet. Om Sai Shri Sai Jai Jai Sai.
