Baba Blessed Me In My Dreams
Anonymous Devotee from USA says:
I and my husband are staunch devotees of Sai Baba. Whatever we are is all because of my Baba. I believe a lot in my Baba and always utter His name. He has taken care of everything in my life and I am really lucky to be blessed by Him. Just thinking and uttering His name brings my mind to rest. I want to share a experience, which I had recently.
I always pray to Baba for lot of things, but firstly for the good health of my family, and always ask Him to take care of it. Some days back, I got a thought that if Baba is with me (I know He is and will always be), He should assure me in anyway (either in my dream or any other way). 2-3 days passed and I knew Baba would surely answer me. Then after some days, I got a dream, where I go to Baba’s temple, and nobody is in the temple. I open the door and I can see Baba moving His eyes, lips. I am wonder stuck and staring at Him. I want to speak a lot to Him, but I can’t utter a single word. I first want to ask Him to take care of my family and soon Baba understands what’s going on in my mind and tells me “don’t worry. I know what you want. I will take care of your family”. The dream further continued, but I can’t remember everything. I was so happy, when I got up in the morning next day. Believe in Baba and He will never let you down. OM SAI RAM.
My First Trip To Shirdi

Dear Hetal Ji, Congratulations on your new born. I am a new mom myself. It’s a wonderful feeling. I became a regular reader of your website from last year. I read the experiences regularly before going to sleep every day. It became a habit and I feel sad if the experiences are not updated. I am attaching a photo of my visit to Shirdi. It is of low quality, so upload it to my experience as per your wish. I have been Baba’s devotee since I was 12. It all started with a small wish of joining the school I wanted. I have innumerable experiences/miracles to share. I am penning down my first trip to Shirdi. Please make the necessary corrections. Please do not disclose my name and Email id.
As I said I was Baba’s devotee since I was 12. But I never had a chance to visit Shirdi. As Baba says as long as He does not wish, we cannot set foot in Shirdi. As the devotees know Baba says we are foolish to think Baba is only in Shirdi. I always used to tell Him that it’s not that He is not with me wherever I am, but I want to touch the soil where Baba sat, ate and played with His devotees. In 2002, I came to USA to do my Masters by Baba’s grace. I have to share a small miracle here. I planned to take Baba idol with me to USA for my daily pooja. Unexpectedly, Baba’s statue fell off from my hands and got broken the day I was traveling. I was very upset and took it as a bad omen. All my relatives were coming to say goodbye. One of my father’s close friends came and gave me Baba’s statue saying that His daughter wanted me to take it with me to USA. My happiness knew no bounds. If that would not have happened, I might have had so many doubts about coming to USA.
After my arrival, I secured research assistantship and started planning a trip to India. I planned India trip in Dec 2003 and I and my family planned trip to Shirdi. We took a 4 day bus trip through AP tourism including Shani Shinghapur, Ajantha and Ellore. We went to Baba’s Darshan and were standing in a line after noon Aarti. Just before we were nearing Baba’s statue, they stopped the line in order to clean. There I stood close to Baba and watched Him for more than 5 minutes. Look at my ignorance, I never realized this as Baba’s Leela till years later. Whoever has been to Shirdi, they know how much the security pushes you around. There I was standing for 5 minutes and could look at Baba without any interruption. I still remember Baba’s side face till today.
Next day we took the bus early in the morning and left from Shirdi. While we were leaving, bus driver stopped at one of the Baba’s temples. I do not know which place it was. He told us that it was the first built Sai temple. They were doing Mangalsnaanam to Baba after Kakad Aarti. For some reason, I asked the lady over there if I could be a part of it. She said yes and I just climbed and pour a bowl of water on Baba. Then later some other devotees followed me. All this I could not realize as Baba’s blessings. He fulfilled my wish of going to Shirdi. He gifted me a beautiful Darshan and the seva, which I did not even request. Now I am waiting for a chance to go to Shirdi with my daughter. He is my pillar of strength during all these years. I depend on Him for every small thing. I do not know whether He gets upset with me for asking such small stuff, when He has bigger problems to take care of. But He knows that without Him I cannot survive. Thank you for posting my experience. I was planning to submit my experience for so long. Baba takes His own time to fulfill our wishes, perhaps to teach us Shraddha and Saburi.
My Prayers Are Unanswered
Anonymous Devotee from India says:
Namaste, all Sai Devotees. I have had faith in Sai since a very long time, but recently I heard about miraculous powers of Sai and how He grants happiness to His devotees. The first time I heard of a wish becoming true of a devotee was when my Dadi (grandmother) was ailing through some problems and due to the continuous reading of the Sai Satcharitra by my aunt, she was absolutely fine within 4 days. That is when it occurred to me that the secrets to all of life’s strife lies here in Sai Satcharitra.
Now I will tell you my story. In 2009, I was with this boy. We were totally in love. We hardly fought. It was the best relationship one could ask for. But unfortunately things changed after 2 and half years and we drifted apart in order to get over one another. We started dating other people, but even then somehow I could never stop thinking about him. I tried so hard to make my second relationship work even though it was bad, only because at the back of my mind I thought that he must be happy with his new girl and I can’t possibly be alone.
I finally ended this second relationship because things just didn’t seem to work. Later on I came to know that he too was not happy in his relationship. His girlfriend hardly met him. We again came in contact and he told me how miserable he was in his relationship and that he was so much more happier with me. But then again I couldn’t tell him how I felt for him because inspite of the bad experience he was still with her. Maybe he too thinks that I will not say yes. I don’t know. I just see it in him and at times he has said it that he loves me. But then he doesn’t make it very obvious. I was going through so much confusion and sleeplessness; I want to tell him yet. I was scared that maybe he loves his girl friend. But then I met his best friend, who told me that he doesn’t love her. He just doesn’t want to alone. He is scared to be alone.
I started reading Sai Satcharitra. All I wish for, is that Baba. Keeping in mind that we both led miserable lives after drifting apart and we do feel somewhere for each other. Please shower Your blessings on us. Give our relationship one more chance. I have decided to not hide away anymore and confess my feelings, regardless of what he says. I need your prayers fellow devotees that he too accepts his love for me. I have done 2 Saptahic Parayan and have started with my third one. Whenever I am low and full of doubts, this book just answers it all. This is the best thing that could have happened to humanity. All I pray now is for that Sainath may I remain under the shadow of Your lotus feet .Please pray for me. OM SAI RAM.
