Anonymous Devotee from India says: Om Sai Ram. I am a Sai devotee and Baba is really kind to me. I want to share my experiences. Sai is everywhere and He always takes care of us and fulfills all our desires. I really mean this. Today with grace of Sai I am sharing my experiences.
I wanted to go to Shirdi from few days, but I couldn’t go there. But I really wanted to be there and wanted to have Baba’s blessing and here comes my Sai. All of a sudden my maid with her family went to Shirdi and it was a surprise. I didn’t know till today, when I saw Prasad from Shirdi, which she brought for us. In Prasad, there was Bundi’s Ladu, which I like very much and Mamra (kurmura) of rice. I want say with inspiration of Sai that I have quite rice till my wish is granted. I feel His sign of saying everything will occur as desired, keeping my fingers crossed. And it doesn’t end here. The list is long.
6 years ago, I used to stay in other city, where I used to go at MATAJI’s, Krishna & SAI Mandir. I had made vows that I will perform some pooja, Vrat or offerings, but somehow I forgot. And here is how Sai reminded me of all and fulfilled all my vows with blessings.
At Mataji’s Mandir, I wanted to do Vrat of Maa and forgot after that. Suddenly one day, in my Mandir, I saw the book of Vrat and I started Vrat. With grace of Sai, I could finish Vrat and wanted some offering to give to Maa. But I had completely forgotten it and somehow Sai reminded me of it. I told my mother about my vision and she decided to go to temple and even without my knowing, she brought the same offerings, which I had vowed. This isn’t a coincident as I vowed a gold ornament as my mother was suffering 6 years ago from calamity and I vowed to Maa that I will do Your Vrat and will give You ornament with full family and my father also joined as that day. And it indeed was a miracle.
I wanted to do some pooja offering at Krishna’s temple and was able to give it over there. I wanted to go Sai Mandir. My father took us there; even there was shortage of time. Sai managed all. There we stop in front of a stall. There were many, but somehow we stopped there only. Stall-owner was patient of my mother, who had paralysis and my mother helped him cure with help of Sai. My mother has expertise in healing paralyzed patients and he recognized mother. It was all Baba’s magic.
My mother had Sai Satcharitra. The devotee, who gave her, had asked her to donate 50 Rs to Kuber Mandir. We didn’t know where it was. But after 5-7 years, she found the Mandir and did the donation. Same happened to me as when my friend gave me Sai Satcharitra, I also passed the same Mandir and told my mother about Mandir. Then she told me her story about Mandir and asked me to do the same. My friend and I bonded recently. But she gave me Sai Satcharitra with Baba’s inspiration and trust me it is the best gift ever. She also gave me 1 other book, where I found some answers to my question with Baba’s blessing.
After starting parayan, I went to Sai temple in old city, which is quite interior place. I used to go there in my childhood (so did my mother). When I was going through Mandir, I wanted to fill Baba’s presence and wanted Him to show me His presence. I passed by a place, where nothing was there before few minutes and there was no other devotee at that place. When I returned, I saw “Sai Vrat Katha book” over there. It was only one book lying over place, where there was nothing a few minutes ago. This was Baba’s sign as I and mom are doing Thursday Vrat and Vrat Katha from 2 years. I thought Baba wanted me to carry it on.
During reading of Sai Satcharitra, I wanted to read and do parayan of “Ramvijaya”. That’s how during search of Ramvijaya, I came to know IL and I joined IL. After joining IL, I found book of Ramvijaya on net, but with surprise I couldn’t find it before, while link was there from so long. In IL, I did “Ramvijaya” parayan. I have started “Sidhdh Mangal Stotrum” and “Ram Raksha Stotrum Parayan”. While latter two are in Sanskrit, I wanted to read Ramayan on Ramnavmi in my mother tongue. So I could understand and fill fulfilled from within. So I decided and read it from Ramayan in Gujrati, where I came to know about “Aditya Hradayam Stotrum”. As Navratri was there, I wanted to read something pertaining Mataji’s devotion (I do Navratri so). With a surprise, I got all the books and material in my home only. I got also what I should have read on Ramnavmi and it was all Sai’s magic all over again. I wanted to do some Annadanam, I could do it on Ramnvami at civil hospital (I wanted to do it from a long time, but only could do this time. So that was important). I went to a temple, where Ram Janmostav and Mataji’s Sthapna was done. So I celebrated both and also enjoyed Balroop of Rama.
I have a habit of talking to Sai with help of Madhav Lele’s book. 1st it told that I would travel and will be accompanied by people as well. It was the day, when I fulfilled all my vows, visited Sai Mandir and all without my knowledge or efforts. There are many recently today. Sai told from the book that a Saint will come to see you and Saint from near temple came and we did Naivaidya Danam. Once Sai said an ordinary Gujarati will meet you and will give solution to your problem and it happened. There are many, which to say and which not.
I will end here talking about Palakhi Mahostav. There was poster on the road regarding Palakhi Mahostav on Hanuman Jayanti. I didn’t know the place from which it was about to be started. I wanted to join Palakhi somehow. When I was returning from my clinic, I just wanted to visit Baba. I usually go from different route, but I went to see Baba. With a great surprise Palakhi was there and it was about to start. This was the Sai temple I usually go, but poster didn’t mention it. There were 2 Palakhis. 1 Palakhi was with large Moortis of SHIV, GANESHA, HANUMANJI & SAI. When I did Darshan and stopped for taking flowers for Sai, another surprise came as 2nd Palakhi of small Mangal Moorti idol of Sai was being carried. I could touch His feet & get blessing from Him. It didn’t stop here. With Sai’s inspiration, I bought Sriphal and when I went into temple, Maharaj asked me to put it into Havan. My family always gives Sriphal into Havan on Asthami in Navratra, but this time I forgot. Baba gave me opportunity to continue my worship.
When I was getting out of Temple, someone said Palakhi was going through which route. I was amazed that it was going to place nearby my house, so I was happy. As it was Thursday, I donated food to cow, but that day I could not make it. With Baba’s inspiration, I went to nearby market, where there were 4-5 cows. I donated food to them (yesterday I went through same market, but there wasn’t a single cow out there). At 10pm, I just came out from my room to my parent’s gallery as I heard dhol-nagara. I thought it must be Sai’s Palakhi only (it was indeed Sai’s blessing as I haven’t seen Palakhi going from this route in this many years). I went to see Palakhi again, but forgot my spectacles and ran to have them. My mom told one Palakhi has gone and I missed SAI or GANESHJI’s Darshan, but with a surprise I saw all of them after I returned (as I had counted on temple, there were 4 big and 1 small Palakhi and I saw from my house as well though mom said 1 Palakhi you have missed. But I don’t know how this happened. You only say how all this might be possible without Baba’s wish). Om Sai Ram.
