My Experience At Shirdi
Anonymous Devotee from India says: First of all, Dear Hetal Ji, you are the most blessed devotee of Sai. He certainly chose you for taking up this noble job. I cannot express my gratitude in words today regarding the service and help you have online service has provided to several devotees of Sai residing all over the globe. All I can ask Sai is to bless everyone, who visits this site. I am a devotee of Sai since my Childhood. But simple I used to visit Baba temple on every Thursday with my brothers. As age increasing my belief and faith towards Baba has increased.
Unexpectedly Baba called me to Shirdi to show His Leela. My sister was going to Shirdi along with her relatives. She called me. I went to Shirdi. We all about 10 people went for Sai Darshan. We brought our mobiles with us. There are many boards saying that mobiles are not allowed, but we carried. During check with security people we managed somehow and we carried mobiles with us for Darshan. I gave my mobile to my younger brother. He kept it in his pocket. By the time we completed our Darshan my brother checked his pocket and there was no mobile. It was lost.
I didn’t feel anything even my mobile lost. I thought that as Baba even instructed before not to carry mobiles, but I carried. It was my mistake. So I didn’t feel much. Then I totally forgotten about my mobile but many of my friends my sister and brother-in law received calls from my lost mobile. He asked and confirmed whether phone belongs to me or not. He is from Maharashtra. After finally concluding that mobile belongs to me, he came to Hyderabad only to that purpose and he handed over my mobile to me. What a miracle! Now a day, no one will give mobile back, but he, from Maharashtra, enquired and given my mobile back. But unfortunately I am not in contact with that person, who helped me a lot. But wherever he is, he will have Sai blessings. I thought that Sai has came to me in the form of that man.
UDI Turns Into Shirdi Mud
Sai Brother Vishwas Ji from India says: I visited Shirdi last year in December for the first time. Before going, I reminded myself to put the sacred mud of Shirdi on my head, but I forgot to do that, and after coming back, I kept thinking of that every now and then.
I usually use Baba’s UDI always on my forehead daily. I always keep some UDI in my home. As the home stock of UDI was getting over and had only a small quantity left. I went to the Sai Baba Mandir in Mysore (which is my native place and where I am living) and collected some UDI (in June this year), wrapped it in a small piece of paper and then put it inside my wallet. After 2 or 3 days, when my home stock of UDI completely got over, I opened my wallet to take the UDI that I had kept inside it, and took the piece of paper in which I had put the UDI. When I opened it, I found to my surprise that the UDI inside the paper piece had become mud, which I believe to be Shirdi’s mud. And there was no bound for my joy because of Baba’s blessings on me.
Before going to Shirdi also, one day I went to Baba’s temple and prayed Him to give me an opportunity to visit Shirdi. And just after 1 week of my praying, I met a friend of mine in the Baba’s temple, who told me that he has not used his 10 days of remaining leaves yet in the office, and that he has to make use of it, otherwise it would be of no use. So he was taking the leave, and he suggested to me that we could go to Shirdi if I am willing. I agreed to it without giving a second thought as I was waiting eagerly that when I will have an opportunity to visit Shirdi and have Darshan of Sai Baba in Shirdi. I also believe, Baba will always know what is going on in His devotees mind as He is omnipresent.
Om Namo Satchidananda Sai Nathaya Namaha
My Faith In Baba
Anonymous Devotee from USA says: I am a simple devotee of Baba. Baba came into my life from the year of 2004-2005 onwards and since then Baba has enfolded us in His arms. Hetal Ji, I am an anonymous devotee currently residing in the USA. In the past, I have written several unforgettable experiences by the blessings of Baba. I believe I am an ardent devotee of Baba and I also hope and believe that Baba also treats me the same. I am a normal human being and keep committing mistakes in this world, but the greatness of Baba is that He forgives His children and puts them back on the right track. Time and again Baba has showered His blessings on us and reinstated the Faith in Him. The recent experience that happened just 3-4 days ago is one of them. Even though it is a small experience (some may feel so), I most certainly feel that Baba did this to show repeatedly that He is holding my hands and did not let go off me.
We had gone to a shopping mall here near my place with my family. In one of the clothing store I was trying out couple of T Shirts and in that process the thread that I was wearing on my neck with Baba’s pendant fell down. So I picked it up and put the knot again and wore it back, although I slightly ignored to secure it fully. Then we checked out of the store and came back to the car. After starting and moving a bit, I suddenly realized that the chain/thread around my neck was missing. I felt so sad and dejected. We had to go to another mall. On the way I was feeling so bad and lost my mood completely. I was cursing myself for not being careful and felt that I should have either kept the chain in my pocket or secured it tightly.
Then I thought that after shopping in the next mall, I will go back to the original store and check there. So we drove back to the first mall and I parked my car in the parking lot somewhere near to where I had parked earlier. Baba skillfully got me to that exact parking area. Then I stepped out searching for the chain on my way and in other stores where we had been and finally to the store where I was trying the clothes. I checked in the fitting room, but I could not find it. I lost all hopes, but I had a very very strong Faith that Baba will not let this happen to me and will find the chain for me, although I didn’t know how exactly. My only worry was that, what if had fallen down on the street and everybody walks over it and stamps it. I did not want that to happen at all.
At any cost I wanted it back and I could not imagine someone stepping on it. If it was India, then somebody would recognize Baba and take it, but here in USA these people would not know what it was and could have stepped over it. Finally I went back to the car dejected but still holding Faith in Baba and told my wife that I could not find it. I started my car again and started moving and suddenly I looked to my right side for some reason and I could find a thread lying on the floor in the 3rd parking spot after my car. I strongly felt that was it and told my wife that that’s it. She stepped out and picked it up. My joy knew no bounds. Luckily it had fallen in the parking out and I am hoping that nobody or no car went over it. I thanked Baba so much for reinstating my Faith in Him. That was the happiest moment of my life. Baba definitely listens to our prayers and will not destroy our Faith in Him. The more strongly we trust Him and develop Faith in Him, the more closer He comes to us. Thanks in advance Hetal Ji for publishing this experience and Thank You Baba for this Leela. Please bless everyone. Thank you.
