Anonymous Devotee from UK says:

Dear Hetal Ji, it’s really great to read the experiences in this web site. You are really doing a wonderful job. I feel very happy and relief, when I read this experiences. I am away from all the mental tensions and problems. Here I would like to share my experiences with all of you. How Baba came into my life and how He saves me from all the obstacles and dangers. I really vow Him at His lotus feet throughout my life. He is everything to me till I die.

I am from Hyderabad. It was in 1996. I was doing my hotel management. I have plans to go abroad and do further education and settle well. This was my dream. In 1999, I was planning to go to Australia to do further studies. I applied for visa and I got my pre visa approved. I was very happy and was waiting for my final visa. But things went wrong, my final visa was stopped due to some reasons (financial matters). It was pending for almost 6-7 months nearly. I and my parents were very tensed about it. I and my mother did poojas and were waiting for the result.

One day my aunt (my dad’s sister) called us and told that a lady from out station came to her house. She will solve your problems by doing some spiritual things. So I and my mother went to my aunt’s place and told that lady about my Australian trip pending for so long. She told me that I will go at any cost and told me to do some ritual things. When she was telling me this matter, I saw Baba’s feet appearing and passing towards for a few seconds and disappeared. My eyes could not believe this incident. At the same time, I saw a UDI oozing out of Baba’s photo. I really felt wonder struck. Nobody else was in that room except me and that lady at that time to see this incident.

After I came home, I started doing what that lady told me to do and after some days by Baba’s grace and krupa, I got visa and ready to fly. I left to Australia and things are going well and I started looking for job and it took a while to get, but somehow managed with my money I brought. After few months, I was in some troubles and things went against me and I have to leave Australia. My dad told me to come back and told me to go to UK. I said ok and went back to India. In 2001, I started applying for student Visa. Again I got Visa problem. I waited for at least 4-5 months. Then this time one of dad’s friend’s wife (she is Sai devotee) told my mother to go to one place, where there is a lady (she is also Sai devotee). She can solve the problem. So I and my mother went to her house.

There I saw Baba statue in her house beautifully decorated with shawl and flowers. I felt very happy seeing Baba. My mother told that lady that I am having Visa problem to go to UK. She told me everything will be all right. Baba will take care, and told us not to worry at all. She told us one mantra, which is very very powerful and told us one pooja, which is also very very powerful to do. I and my all family members started chanting that mantra 108 times every day and started doing pooja to Baba. After few days with Baba’s grace, I got visa and flew to UK.

I started looking for job to cover my living expenses. I got job in restaurant and started working. Suddenly one fine morning, I met my younger brother’s friend outside on the road and he told us that he got 5 years work permit and was working in a hotel. He told me to apply as well. I applied as well and got the job and surprisingly the employer did my work permit as well for 5 years just for £600, which is very cheap. Usually it takes £3000-4000, and also not guarantees that you will get it. I got my work permit approved in less than a month time. My joy knew no bounds. My parents felt very happy.

After one year, I got married. I brought my wife. We had good time. We traveled all over Europe enjoyed a lot. After 3 years, there was differences between me and her and got divorce. It’s time for me to apply for British passport. I vowed to Baba that I will present Him silver crown if I get British passport. I got it without any problems. I presented the silver crown to Baba on my birthday (it came on guru poornima day 2011). I was so happy. So my parents gave this crown on my behalf in Baba’s temple near my house (in India). they sent me some pictures as well. I saw and felt very happy.

I was staying with my brother’s family for few years. Then I moved to different place and staying alone in different house (30 min drive). I was working in good company and things were going well. After few months, things changed drastically. I lost my job. I was planning to china and Hong Kong trip (which I booked all in advance). So I went and came back. Everything went well by Baba’s grace. It was a great trip. After I came, I struggled a lot in getting job in my field. I put lot of effort, but I could not get job. This is real time, where I started praying with true love and devotion. I ignored Him all these years (since 1999-2011). I really feel ashamed and bad for this. Baba pulled me towards Him to set me in right path and right life. I started applying for jobs. Daily I used to go to temple near my house. I used to watch Baba’s live Darshan every day on my laptop. My day used to start by seeing His Darshan only. I started looking for experiences in search engine and found your website. I started reading the devotees experiences and felt very amazed and happy and thought that I should also post my experiences once, I get the job.

I came across the 9 Guruvar Vrat and started doing it. During this Vrat (on guru poornima day 2012), I saw Baba in Deepam, which I lit in front of Baba’s photo. I was wonder struck and couldn’t believe and I was mesmerized and was goose bumps for few minutes and called my parents and told them my experience. They felt very happy and told me to send the picture. I told I will. I sent it through my friend, who was going to India. They saw those pictures and felt very happy. In first guru poornima day 2011, it was my birthday, when I gifted Baba a crown and on second guru poornima day 2012, it was my mom’s birthday, when the above incident happened. It was an unforgettable coincidence in my life time. It’s all my Baba’s grace. He is everything to me. I am nowhere without Him.

After completing, on my 9th Guruvar Vrat, I went to my nearby temple to distribute the 9 Guruvar Vrat books in temple. Then pandit told me that there is Baba’s Bhajan going on next door, go and distribute the books there. So I went and saw Bhajan was going there. I felt so happy and tears came out of my eyes and couldn’t believe for a while that I am sitting in front of Baba and doing Bhajan. After Bhajan, I gave books and came back home. After few days, I got good job with nice salary in big company in my field. But it was for short term. I made good money. Thing were going well by Baba’s grace and I was having good life. After few months, the job ended and I started looking for jobs again. It was tough time and was jobless for 4 months (one thing I need to remind to all devotees). When we get what we want, we ignore what we vow to God. Same thing happened in my case. I totally ignored about the vow and was literally struggling. I keep asking Baba each day in question and answer web site about my problems and job matter and other personal matter. I used to get very straight forward and beautiful answers, which used to give me a lot relief from my pains and troubles. One day Baba reminded me about the vows I need to fulfill. So I decided to fulfill the vows (I want to keep them private). Now I am doing 9 Guruvar Vrat again for the second time (to get a good job with good salary) and I was about to finish in a week time the Vrat.

I keep reading different Baba’s books and feel very close to Him and learn a lot, but we need to put them in to practice in our daily life. Then only we feel the experiences and Leela’s of Baba. I asked Baba that UDI should come out His photo on 2013 guru poornima day. I bow to Lord Sai at dust of His feet (my guru, my life and everything) to me to fulfill my wish. Dear devotees I would like to tell you that we need to have faith and patience and also have control on our desires and senses. Then only we can across this worldly ocean. Have faith in Sai and leave burdens on Him and see the miracles He does for His devotees. I experienced practically. I was jobless for nearly an year and Baba looked after me as His child with love, caring giving me money in different ways surprisingly. I used to get money and cheque from employee benefits of UK. Baba gave me good house for my shelter (which is 5 minutes walk from my place).

I do not have to grieve (suffer for anything). I just remember 11 assurances given by Baba, whenever I am in trouble and read His Leela’s and chant His name. I feel so relief and happy. I am just waiting for a job I asked Baba. I wish soon it will happen. I also wish Baba that even in my coming births, I want to be His ‘Loving Devotee’. I would like to conclude my experiences now. If I have any other experiences, I will post them later. I humbly pray to Baba ”please bless all Your devotees and there family member’s with good and beautiful life. Baba, please forgive me if I had forgotten anything or put anything wrong in my experience post. Bow to Sai, peace to all. Om Sai Ram.

  1. Beautifully told experience! Although you have travelled all over the world, Baba has always been there to help you and arrange things for you. Even though you have gone through a lot, being jobless, divorce, etc. it is wonderful how you have kept your faith in Baba very strong. Even if we forget about Baba when things are going well, He never forgets about us, and as many of the stories in Sai Satcharitra show, Baba even remembers how we were in past lives and will guide us so our futures lives turn out well. Om Sai Ram!

  2. Wonderful are really blessed.m

    I'd like to share a small thing here. Around an year ago I posted my prayers here mentioning that the position of my one eye has been changed due to continuous crying and reading the tiny letters of sai charita via mobile.. I was worrying that my husband would never come back if he see my face now.. But baba showered me with his blessings..

    Baba cured my eye. The position of my eye changed back to normal and I look far better than before. I went to the working place where I worked earlier to get my service letter and all my ex colleagues were surprised to see me. They all were wondering how I turned to good looking lady now,I look so youthful just like a teenager, which I can say it is purely my saimaa's miracle. Thank you baba.
    Baba not only changed my appearance but also he is making sure that I don't cry anymore. He made all my friends return(except a very few who are closed to my husband) and making them talk to me. This is making me feel good as I'm not alone anymore. Baba is making me busy most of the day with things and I stopped crying now. I feel so happy for no reason. I know its my baba only giving me this good feeling.

    I know very soon baba will bring back my husband too.he will make him realize all his mistakes and make him stay away from his bad friends. I trust in my sai. He will never let me down. I'm sure he will improve my vision and make me read sai charita again or he will bless me with a printed copy. Thank you sai. I don't know how to thank you. I surrender at your feet. Please stay in my heart forever. Om sai ram

    • it is nice to here dat ur eye has cured….i remember dat one day i read abt ur eye problem bcz u use to read ssc via mobile…see hw blessed ur to c baba's miracle….b happy…if no one is der in ur life also dnt worry baba is ther with you….om sai ram

    • Om Sai Ram.

      Happy for you Sister. Best wishes to you. Our Baba is the best and sweetest FATHER.

      We love you a lot Baba. Please be with us always forever. Many many THANKS to you for everything dearest BABA.

      Om Sai Shri Sai Jai Jai Sai.

  3. Very nice experiences….well narrated….Thanks a lot for sharing with us…OM SAIRAM…LOVE YOU A LOT SAIMA….:):)

  4. It feels great reading your experience. The way Baba pulled you towards him at every stage and gave you the opportunity to get closer to him is wonderful. It is sad to read about your divorce and the hardships being jobless but I'm sure Baba (if not yet) will surely bless you with everything and give you loads of happiness. Your Shraddha and Saburi are very inspiring.

    Just one thing I would like to remind all Sai children in this corrupt world is that there are many people who try to use Baba's name and deceive by saying they are blessed by Baba with mantra and other things, and make things happen but as they constantly remind in Shirdi Sai Sansthan that Baba never advised anyone anyone with any mantra or doesn't like it when his children get distracted with these type of things..Baba has only asked for two things Shraddha and Saburi and thats it..As long as we surrender to his lotus feet, he will take us into his fold.

    Om Sai Ram

  5. its good experience i have also a good experience i got good job by baba grace and i just because of shirdi trip i went have darshan of baba for two time this year shirdi after that baba blessed me and i m happy .. if things are not going good so go to shirdi for have darshan and baba blessing i m sure thing will start going good with you it my experience..
    om sai ram

  6. Very nice experience. Rightly told by you that usally we remember baba only when we want something from him and forget him after getting that. Then we start blaming him for any wrong doing. True devotee as not that person who worship him for what to something. True devotee always remember him and his following and will always bless by him. Jai Sai Ram.

  7. Om sai ram… sai ram….om sai ram….om sai ram….om sai ram….om sai ram….om sai ram….om sai ram….om sai ram….om sai sai ram….om sai ram….om sai ram….om sai sai sai sai sai sai ram.. Om sai ram…..

  8. OM SAI RAM. Everyday I am reading the experiences of baba ji's devotees and the miracles that are happening in their lives. I have been a baba's devotee for a very long time now and have been praying to him to show at least some- 10% changes in my life. But everyday is a new struggle in life my personal life my office everything is just hay wire. Now the problems are extended to my family also. My sister is facing so my problems she is not getting a job being a very highly qualified person and she is not settling. She is very tensed I am very worried about her, she is moving towards depression. I fail to understand why are you not helping her, helping my parents, helping my family, helping me??? What wrong have we done. I have started to loose my patience, I donot know till what time will we all survive with this tensions…..

    • Don't worry sai is patience and have strong faith on him.
      Baba will take care of you and your family.

  9. Baba please help me..please i have lost all hopes..please baba bless me..waiting for ur miracle…

    • Om Sai Ram.

      Dear Sai Devotee please do start donating food to some poor people / animals. Baba loved to distribute food to all , be it poor people, children, cats,
      dogs, cows , etc. So do try to give some food on your Puja day. And not only on Thursdays, you can make this
      a habit and try to donate food anytime of the week, throughout your life. You will feel very happy, and Baba will be pleased with you too. It will erase our BAD KARMA.

      Prayers for the peace, well being and happiness of us all.

      OM SAI RAM.

  10. Om Sai Ram .

    I felt like sharing the simple 9 thursday VRAT procedure with you Dear Sia Devotee. Please do this and surrender to BABA completely. Am sure he will wipe away all your troubles.

    This is a wonderful
    and simple puja of Sai Baba and he is very loving to all his children. So, do this Vrat with simple and strong Faith in Baba, and you will
    be blessed for life, and experience his Blessings in your life 🙂

    I am writing below the process i followed for my Vrat. You can read the Vrat book instructions also before you start, and can add those steps
    also if you wish to.

    My process:
    1> I used to do the Vrat in temple, you can do it at home, and see if you can visit the temple. If you can't also no problem. Just remember Baba
    in your Heart.

    2> Offer yellow flowers and 5 / 7 bananas to Baba. Any other food items can be also offered as Prasad, like til laddoo, dry fruits, coconut, any sweets,
    biscuits, chakli, chocolates , fruits, home made rice – dal, any tiffin items cooked at home . basically you can offer to Baba anything fresh that you have at home.

    3> Read the Vrat book completely.

    4> Do 9 Namaskars to Baba by kneeling on the floor.

    5> Give some money as Dakshina. ( you can give Dakshina at home also, if you are not going to temple. Keep that money every Thursday at home and at last
    Thursday whne you visit temple, you can take it to temple).

    6> This is the most important part of the Puja : Donating Food to some poor people / animals. Baba loved to distribute food to all , be it poor people, children, cats,
    dogs, cows , etc. So do try to give some food on your Puja day. And not only on Thursdays, you can make this
    a habit and try to donate food anytime of the week, throughout your life. You will feel very happy, and Baba will be pleased with you too.

    May we all secure Baba's blessings always.

    Love you BABA.

  14. very nice experience i feel baba answered me through this experience even i am struggling to get a job and even yesterday i was thinking about it and now baba gave me a answer that faith and patience is important.. even our close relations dont come to our rescue but baba comes even without asking him.. he is truly the greatest mother…om sai ram..

  15. I am in my last year p.g and my exams are bit tough i was worried how i am going to clear the papers but had full faith in baba and prayed to him to help me but had a little confusion in mind as to how the exams will be.. but saima made my exams easier in a way i never imagined whatever i said him he heared and blessed me.. still more papers are there but now my fear is vanished as saima has made me feel that he is always with me and not to worry about anything.. i dont know how to thank him.. our saima's love and affection is beyond words how can one be so kind he is the true mother of all…

  16. It all comes down to this line: "Have faith and patience in Him and he shall take care of you."

    O Deva, let our faith in You be unwavering, let there not be any shadow of a doubt that creeps across our mind. We know You are looking after us and will save us from all calamities O Sadguru.

    I surrender at Your feet my ego, my self, my problems and my life. Thank You for all the Love & Peace You are sending me O Sai 🙂

    Jai Sairam

    • sharma ji Om Sai Ram..i am in great pain…waiting for BABA blessings and his miracle..but my hopes are dying now..why is he not blessing me and my family…i read this blog where every devotee share his/her experience…he fulfills everybody wish but why not mine..when will my suffering end..

    • Dear Anonymous, I cannot understand your pain but I can understand pain. I too am sailing in the same boat. I too see other devotees posting their miracles and blessed stories. I take courage from them. I tell myself that I cannot hurry Baba, there are other devotees whose pain He needs to relieve first.

      Surrender to Him, like I have done. Surrender your thoughts also to Him, be negative or positive. Deva will surely bless you with what You want. I will add you to my prayers too.

      Have Faith in Deva. Bless us all O Sadguru. Thank You for everything O Sai 🙂

      Jai Sairam

  19. Dear Sai Devotee, happy to read your post and felt pain too that you are not with your wife. If you still wish to be with her, I would pray for bringing her back in your life. I don't see any such reference in your post so I can not make out how you feel about spending lonely life.
    May you be blessed with whatever you would be wishing.
    You are lucky to see BABA's udi coming out from BABA's photo. I really envy you for that! (in a good way of course!)
    I have been blessed by BABA so much so that I find HIM near me all the time. Many times I wonder how some thoughts passed my mind and that thing is taken care of making me happier day by day.
    Reading about BABA's teachings and leading good life as BABA has guided us is as good as doing any VRAT. May everyone be blessed by BABA's LOVE.
    Jai SAI RAM.

  20. Om Sai Jai Sai. Dear devotee I salute you for having firm faith on baba. After having so much of hardship and separation from your better half you stil believe on Saiji. May Saiji bless everyone with such devotion. Oh deva thank you for everything. Baba Please always bless us all and increase our shradhha n saburi by each passing day.

  21. Indeed it is true tat Baba is always there and once He assures you something your hear desires , He will hand it over to us surely. My heart always wanted to ave a wall white marble statue of Baba and I got Him in that form in a surprisingly foreign land. My joy new no bounds as I understood Baba s listening to my wishes. Many such wishes has been fulfilled slowly making me feel that He is always watching and will be always there around the corner for me. I pry that I spend te rest of my Iife at His feet now and forever. OM sai , mere sai.

  22. yes, if we trust and believe BABA with patience HE will surely come and help us…Sai Baba’s words guaranteeing the welfare of the Bhaktas:-

    "There will never be any dearth or scarcity, regarding food and clothes, in any devotees’ homes. It is my special characteristic, that I always look to, and provide, for the welfare of those devotees, who worship Me whole-heartedly with their minds ever fixed on Me. Lord Krishna has also said the same in the Gita. Therefore, strive not much for food and clothes. If you want anything, beg of the Lord, leave worldly honours, try to get Lord’s grace and blessings, and be honored in His Court. Do not be deluded by worldly honor. The form of the Deity should be firmly fixed in the mind. Let all the senses and mind be ever devoted to the worship of the Lord, let there be no attraction for any other thing; fix the mind in remembering Me always, so that it will not wander elsewhere, towards body, wealth and home. Then it will be calm, peaceful and care-free. This is the sign of the mind, being well engaged in good company. If the mind is vagrant, it cannot be called well-merged." BABA please bless me that I should always be at your lotus feet—umamaheswari
