I want to share one wonderful experience in today post, which happened with me yesterday (April 11th 2013) and which proved me that Sai Baba is with me each and every minute to guide and help me.
Yesterday was Sai day (Thursday) and Telugu New Year (Ugadi). On Wednesday night, I had a big fight with my hubby and it continued on Thursday too. I have a feeling that if on Ugadi, I will be sad and crying then I will be crying for the whole year. So I was praying Baba continuously to make everything OK. My hubby was very angry with me and he was not talking to me and I was very sad and I couldn’t concentrate on anything and I was crying before Baba for help. And my sweet Baba has lot of plans for me.
I couldn’t sleep on Wednesday night because of the fight. Thursday was festival and I was busy with work in house from early hours. I was very tired and was sleeping after breakfast. I wanted to see
Baba’s Aarti. on TV at 12 PM, but I was not able to see and slept. Suddenly after some time, I felt some water drops have fallen on me and I thought it would be my husband, who wants to patch up. But to my surprise, when I open my eyes, there was no one in the room and door was closed. Then I thought it would be from the AC, but that was also off. A thought came into my mind may be it’s our Baba. If I am at home, I have a habit of watching Sai Baba Madhyan Aarti on TV and when the pujari sprinkle the water on the devotees, I always use to think that at-least once that water drops should fall on me and then I will think that Baba has accepted me as His devotee. I was searching for my phone to see what the time was. As at around 12:15, pujari will sprinkle the water and the time was 1PM. I asked Baba is that you or not? I am sorry Baba for testing You, but another thought came in my mind that if my niece opens the door, all of sudden and come in then I will know that You did that with me. And next second, I could see that my niece was in as I thought and Baba proved His presence. I am very happy Baba. Thank You Baba and Sorry for questioning You Baba.
After lunch, I was talking to my husband about the fight and he was not responding to anything. Then I took a vow to Baba that if this issue is resolved, I will come to your temple in the evening. After 1 hour long discussion, ours issue was resolved and I told my husband to take me to Baba temple. He was in sleepy mood, so he said that after getting up we will go. But it was almost 7 PM. I was asking my hubby to take me to temple and he was doing some work. Then I asked Baba to call me to the temple and another surprise happened as soon I asked Baba my hubby said OK lets go. I was very happy and got ready. It looked as if Baba has planned everything for me before.
When we were going, everyone in the family said they will join us. So by the time we started, it was late and I was worried if temple will be open or closed. When we reached temple parking area, we were hearing Baba Bhajan. Here this temple area is very big almost 1 acre and we have temples of every God in the same premises. And usually this festival pooja are in the Shiva’s temple area. To my surprise, this time it was in Sai Baba temple and I was very happy and Baba temple was decorated very nicely. Couple of weeks back on Thursday, I gave Baba a yellow shawl and same day Baba wore it and He was looking very handsome. A thought arouse that I should see that shawl there. Baba was dressed in white and He was looking very handsome. I took Baba Darshan and Prasad and we came out of temple.
One more surprise was when we came out, some people were serving food to all devotees and my niece wanted to eat something there. So when we went there, there was heavy rush and no place to sit. Then one elderly man in white dress with white beard came to us and showed was the place to sit. Our family is of 7 members and it was as if that place was reserved for us. We sat there and that uncle had seen that we will get all the items to eat. In between he was inquiring if we need anything and are we good. He was like Baba to me. We were eating in the Dhuni area and I was not able to see Baba from there. Then I thought it would be better if I would see Baba while eating. We completed our food and we came out.
After that we were going to all the temples in that area like Ganesh, Shiva etc. Last we went to Hanuman temple and there was another surprise waiting for me. Hanuman Ji was wearing the shawl, which I gave to Baba. I was very happy that on that auspicious day, He was wearing the shawl, which I gave. A thought, which arouse when I was entering the temple, I forgot about it but Baba fulfilled it. This proves that even if we forget our wish, but Baba will not. He will fulfill it in some or the other way.
Nice Bhajans were going on, so we again went to Sai Baba temple area and sat there hearing to them. I was seeing Baba and I was lost. Here comes another surprise for me. My Father in law doesn’t know why, but he bought a plate of food and gave it to me and no one else in the family wants it. So I took that as Baba Prasad and was eating it seeing Baba. Then I remembered the thought, which came in my mind while eating that I should eat seeing Baba.
Baba has fulfilled all the innermost thoughts, which were crossing my mind. He was reading all the things, which were going on my mind and fulfilling them. I felt as if Baba was saying are you happy now and are you satisfied? I thanked Baba for everything He has done for me and He made my day very memorable, which I cherish for rest of my life.
Sorry for long post, but in a single day Baba has done a lot for me and made my day Ugadi, a day to remember. I am very happy and thank You Baba for everything. Sorry for all my mistakes Baba. Please forgive me Baba. Love You a lot Baba. Please be with all of us and guide us (all Your devotees) in right path.
