Sai Brother Karthick Ji from Canada says: Hello Hetal Ji, This is the second time I’m writing to you. First of all, I humbly prostrate before my SatGuru and I know that I have His blessings as I narrate this experience to you and your readers. Some of the readers might think that I’m narrating the coincidences as miracles. However I am convinced that these are indeed the acts of my beloved SatGuru.
I have given up my ego at the holy feet of my SatGuru. I am convinced that all good experiences are due to the grace of my Guru. I went to India after a gap of 2 years. Despite the policy limitations in my company, with the grace of Baba, I could go to India with all my ticket expenses reimbursed. I enjoyed seeing my family after a longtime; though I could not go to Shirdi I had the grace of Baba to visit His temple near my residence.
One of the occasions I felt that there was some sort of negative energy around me. It was afternoon and I immediately went to Sai temple. It was Baba’s grace that I could see the afternoon
Aarti. I came out and there was a fakir whom I felt was waiting just for me. I called him and had gave all my offerings. He lit a campher, directed the holy smoke towards me and uttered some mantras in Quran. I felt relieved. I felt convinced that it was Baba that blessed me.
We then marched to the holy temple town of Trichy. My sister in law is an ardent devotee of Baba. I had contributed my humble offerings for Annadhana in that temple. For anyone who is travelling to Trichy, they should definitely visit this temple. I have given the link for the sake of ardent devotees. People from the nearby villages, Trichy visit this temple. We went on Thursday afternoon and the prayer hall was packed with full of devotees experiencing the grace of Baba.
Priest conducted the prayers in Tamil and everybody sang along with him. The prayer hall was filled with full of positive energy. I was sitting in the middle and I could hear a couple of fine youngsters talking to themselves. One of them spoke about building a temple and serving the people. On hearing this, I prayed to Baba that this noble desire of the youngster should be fulfilled. Organizers of temple were looking for people to carry Sai Chariot, I was sitting in the middle and there were youngsters rushing in close to carry the chariot. I was chosen though and I had the privilege of carrying the chariot around the temple. Without the grace of Baba, this incident could not have happened. I cherished this overall experience, since the prayers were conducted in Tamil, I could relate to it better.
I had come back to Vancouver. I scheduled my PMP exam on Thursday 25th Apr and I was preparing for my exam. PMP exam is intense and requires a minimum of 2 hrs study every day. On some of the days, when I was not in best of mindset, I felt that Sai would make me read. He acted as my Lord Dakshinamurthy showering the power of knowledge on me. The exam was not easy, but I felt that I had the grace of my SadGuru and I had the belief that I will not fail in my attempt as I was taking the test on Thursday. Exam was of 4 hours duration and I finished the exam right on time. I had passed the examination with the grace of Baba. Internally I had made a commitment that I will contribute some money to the Manikandam temple if I had passed the exam.
I received a post from the temple the very next day, I felt as if a reminder was served on me to keep up my commitment. I kept my commitment and contributed for Annadhanam. Baba always serves reminder to His devotees and it is up to us to notice them and do the needful. I and my wife have been married for almost 5 years and we do not have a child yet, this is one factor that we feel that we are missing out on. I humbly request the readers to pray for us. I am very fortunate to have a Sadguru like Sai Baba. I once again humbly prostrate before Baba for making me write this testimonial.
Baba Was There All The Time
Anonymous Devotee from India says: Hi Hetal Ji, I am a vivid reader of your blog. I make it a point to start my day by reading your blog and when I read, I always pray Sai Deva to make me read some incidents, which are very similar to my life. I am a child of our Sai Maharaj and would like to get immersed in His bhakti more and more. Kindly do not disclose my name and E-mail id . Please do the correction where ever needed.
First let me tell you how I came to know about our Saviour Sai Baba. No one in my house is a devotee of Sai Deva, but we do have pictures of Baba in our house (Gifted by relatives). Once when I was really longing for something and deeply troubled in life, I accidentally came across the Website (where you need to put a number from 1 to 700 to get Saima’s reply to our problems). I just tried it and to my surprise, I got a very timely and appropriate response from Baba.
I felt very happy and started searching about Baba more and more. I landed on to your website and was very happy to read different experiences shared by Children of Sai Baba. Some experiences exactly matched with mine. This made my faith more and more firm. I also came to know about Sai Nav Guruvar Vrat, through your website and thought of keeping the same. During the same time, my sister was planning to shift her job as there was no growth in her job. Though she is very talented, she was not able to get into a new field as all employers preferred only young people or fresher (My sister is 37 years old). She was very disheartened and seeing her I too used to get distressed.
I thought of keeping Sai Nav Guruvar Vrat for her. By Baba’s grace, I was able to start my Vrat as planned. 7 weeks passed, still she could not find a suitable opening. During this time, she had appeared for few tests (sent through mail), but no response came from the employers. I too was getting apprehensive about my Vrat. But somehow I made up my mind that I will complete my Vrat whatever happens. I was consoling myself that two more weeks are still remaining and definitely Baba will show some miracle in the coming weeks. I kept praying hard all the time. I was also praying that if my Nav Guruvar Vrat get over before my sister finds a suitable position, my faith in Baba should not undulate (as we all are humans and our mind keeps questioning about our faith). But somewhere I had the feeling that my Sadguru Baba will definitely not leave me and will show some miracle in the next coming weeks.
On the eighth Thursday (30. 05.2013), the miracle did happen and my sister got a job in one of the best companies. My joy found no bounds. I was really happy to know that Baba was hearing me all the time I called Him. I thanked Baba from my whole heart and decided to pen down this experience. By Baba’s blessing, I will be completing my Nav Guruvar Vrat next week. I am planning to donate food, but I do not know how as I am not able to find anyone here to give food. But I am sure that Baba will definitely show a way for this also. This Is only one of the Sai Deva’s Leela what I have narrated. I can write down many more of them, but as I felt this is very close to my heart, I need to send this one first.
Baba be with all your children always guide and protect them. We all need Your blessings Deva.
Hetal Ji, thank you for such a wonderful platform for Sai devotees. Sai Maharaj Ki Jai.
Baba Saved My Life
Sai Sister Poonam Ji from India says: Hi every one, this is Poonamsatish, working as asst. professor in PG College in Andhra Pradesh. Now I am going to explain you such an experience where Baba saved my life. In the year 2010, I was pregnant. My delivery date was on July 29th 2010, when I was starting to go hospital. Our neighbour aunt came from Shirdi and gave Baba’s Prasad and holy threads of Saibaba to tie on my wrist. I tied and we remembered the story of Maina Thai to whom Baba sent His prasadam through Ramgiribua. And I went to hospital.
The other day, pain was started and I was unable to cooperate my doctor. I begged her to do cesarean operation. When I forced her, she took me to c-section and within an hour a cute little baby girl came out and they gave my baby to my parents. Later I was hearing voice of my doctor, who was saying that today is the most disappoint day as baby came safely, but mother is in threat as her vein under womb is cut and bleeding is not stopping.
Immediately she made two stitches to stop bleeding and called up vascular surgeon, who has to travel 3 kms at least to reach my hospital. Finally he came and told to my doctor that don’t be tensed. I am here and made another 3 stitches to that vein. That doctor was very busy person, but he was available at that time. It was Thursday and I believe Baba came in the form of vascular surgeon and saved my life. Even my doctor is also Baba for me as she identified why this bleeding is not stopping and for immediate purpose she stitched there.
Anyway since I am Baba’s devotee, Baba saved my life and given a cute healthy baby in my hands. Hey Sainath always be merciful at me and my entire family and also on Your entire devotees. You saved my life and gave mother to my baby and gave daughter to my parents again. Hey Sainath, “Aapko Koti Koti Pranaam”. Dear friends now see this experience, some other time I will share my many other experiences. Om Sai Ram.
