Sai Brother Rajesh Ji from UK says: Om Sai Ram. We are currently living in UK. I, my wife, and son are ardent devotees of Saibaba. We truly believe in God without whom this world wouldn’t have existed. First of all I would like to convey my sincere thanks to Hetal Ji for creating such a wonderful platform to share real life experiences and principles bestowed by our lord Saibaba. These are really life changing. This is our second blog and I would like to share a great miracle that deals with Baba’s two main teachings Shraddha (Faith) and Saburi (Patience).
We are living in UK and very recently we applied for our Permanent residency. We went for the same day visa service so as to avoid the long delays as the postal applications would generally take 6 months. Though our application was straight forward, we still took the help of Solicitors as Baba guided us to take their help. We blindly follow Baba’s instructions as they all proved to be correct from the beginning.
We hoped to get visa the same day, but unfortunately the case officer requested an additional document, which I didn’t take along with me. Though I had this document, I didn’t take this as the Solicitors said it’s not required. We were sad and also feared what else the case officer would say and we prayed to Saibaba. In the meantime the Case Officer confirmed everything is fine except that she required one additional document and gave us 14 days to submit and then take the final decision.
We were thankful to Saibaba as the case officer was very kind in explaining and giving us some time. We then posted the document the next day and were waiting for the Case Officer to respond based on this. Days, weeks passed and still we were desperately waiting for the response. All sorts of doubts started to surround us as to why the delay might be. Though we were positive, but still had that inner fear. As our general practice, we cast two lots of chits in front of Saibaba to see what Saibaba is going to say. To our utter dismay, we got the chit which said you won’t get the visa. We were in a complete shock and my wife’s health started to deteriorate thinking about this. But I consoled her saying not to worry, but still pray Saibaba and He will give us. We still had a strong faith in Baba as He Himself guided us to take Solicitors help while applying for the visa.
After four weeks, we lost complete interest in the visa and we came to a conclusion that whatever decision comes, we will accept it and not to think of this anymore. We stopped enquiring the Solicitor about the status and got detached from this. We used to read the devotees experiences blog as usual every day and do all other things.
One day, as usual I was reading the devotees blog around half 12 in the noon and as soon as I finished reading it, a great miracle happened. Exactly after a month of submitting the requested document, I received a call from the Solicitor saying that the Case Officer just returned from unexpected sick leave and approved our application and going to post all the documents and Visa papers. We were greatly delighted and conveyed our thanks to Saibaba. We knew He’s going to give us. But He was simply testing our faith and patience. We really thank Saibaba from the bottom of our heart.
We now received our documents and also the permanent residency visa. We learnt lot of lessons during this process like Faith, Patience, Detachment, Carefulness and many more. We love You SAIBABA and request ever take care of Your children. OM SAI RAM.
