Always Looking Out For Me
Sai Brother Adithya Ji from India says: During my school days, I never really believed in Sai Baba. I was always spiritual, but never a Sai Bhakta. It is through a series of miracles that have unfolded over the last six years or so that I realized the true meaning of faith and Sainath’s omniscience. Today, I can confidently say that I have found everything I need in terms of guidance in the Sri Sai Satcharitra. And at 19 years of age, my faith in Baba is unshakable and He is everything for me.
I have a number of incidents that I could narrate as to how Baba’s grace has saved me and my loved ones and everyone who has surrendered to Him. However, as I begin writing this post, I wished to narrate one very peculiar yet immensely inspiring incident. The readers would be surprised to know that I am choosing this one over absolutely unbelievable miracles like my dad’s life being saved during a terrorist attack and his pulling through a major heart attack without even knowing it ONLY by drinking Baba’s UDI mixed with water when his body was cold.
This is probably one of the smaller miracles that Sainath has done for me, but it is most special.
I was in my second year in hostel in Kolkata and I had purchased a new bike. It had just been given its temporary registration number and I had to write it down with a black felt pen by the next day. Somehow, it slipped in my mind. I left early next morning to a hall in Lake Gardens to perform my Aavaani Aavatam (Changing of thread ceremony performed annually by Brahmans). On the way, I was stepped by a Police vehicle and asked about my missing number plate. I had all the requisite documents to prove my vehicle’s ownership and other things, but merely because I had not reproduced the number on the plate, I was being harassed by the two policemen.
They were demanding exorbitant sums of money, which I really did not have and frankly, knew I did not need to pay as per law. But all that was meaningless as the two cops continuously pestered me for the cash and threatened to take my bike to the police station, which was far away. They refused to speak in Hindi or English and it was just worsening the situation as I could hardly understand most of what was being said. I don’t know why but I felt so helpless that I felt like I was about to cry. At that moment, I invoked Baba in my mind and almost fought with Him to please help me.
Within two minutes, a gentleman in civil clothes riding a motorbike stopped nearby, looking at the police vehicle. He came straight to me, took me aside and asked me what the matter was. I told him everything, realizing by then that he too was a cop. Just as I began pleading, he kept his hand on my shoulder, told me to relax and took me near the police car. He reproached both men severely in Bengali and returned my papers to me. He then assured me that if anybody stopped me on the way, I should simply take his name and that there would be no problem. Before I could thank him, he sped off. I began sobbing and was awestruck by Baba’s all-pervasiveness. I remember this incident so fondly that even today it brings tears.
I have traveled on that route several times after that day, but I have never seen the cop, who helped me. I don’t expect to either. He was sent there to protect me by my real and only guardian, who never lets even the slightest problem touch me. He, who looks after me like a mother, with all the affection, spoiling me by showering me with much more than I require and having my back always, like a good father, never letting any calamity befall me. I just hope Baba’s grace touches more and more lives everyday, which I am sure it does and that everyone can partake of this ocean of love.
Anonymous Devotee from India says: I am a great Shirdi Sai devotee for the past 9 years and He speaks to me. I have experienced several miracles of Sai in my life. My second son (1.5 years old) was having high temperature of nearly 101 for more than 3 days. He couldn’t eat or drink anything because he had mouth ulcer redness in his tongue. I was much worried because my husband suffered a dengue like fever few months ago and recovered with Sai’s blessings. I did not want my son to suffer such a horrible fever. My husband, my two sons, and myself went to Sai temple since we were much worried for my second son.
I left my mobile in my car and went inside the temple. While coming out, Prasadam was served “Puliyodarai”. I got two cups and came out. My son, who didn’t take anything for the last 3 days, grabbed the prasadam from me and started eating. It was quite spicy. Moreover his tongue was red and swollen because of Vitamin B deficiency. I was so happy that my son is having food. I just took my mobile to dial my mother and tell her about my son had prasadam. There was a message typed in my mobile in “write message” slot as “SAI FEEDED”. I couldn’t believe my eyes. Car is locked, no one was there. Mobile also was locked. How could a message come into my mobile? Sai’s miracle in my life is infinite. My son became alright. My Sai is awesome, wonderful, my speaking God. Thank You Sai Baba.
Sai Helped Us To Get The Visa
Anonymous Devotee from USA says: Hi All, We have 3 kids. We have been living in USA from last 5 years. We went to India to celebrate my twins 1st birthday. We went to stamping in India to get back to USA and visa got rejected and we disappointed a lot. We have all the stuff like car TV and other things in USA. Really we didn’t know we have to vacate the house or we have to pay the rent. We decided to pay the rent for few months as we like that place and house. By God’s grace, my husband client was agreed to work from India. One of my twin boy’s hand was broken and both twins got eye infections really don’t know what to do. We were praying all the Gods and going to all the temples.
After few months again we went to stamping again. It was rejected. So we lost all the hope and vacated the home in USA. My friends helped to vacate the house and they did throw all the stuff. Really we couldn’t sleep for few days because we bought all that stuff with the hard work. One of my friends told me to do Sai 7 days parayanam. My husband and I did parayanam and we got some relief and slowly we were planning to stay in India. We decided to go to Shirdi and we went to Shirdi with all my family members. Once I saw the Baba in the temple I couldn’t stop crying and couldn’t come back from the temple. After few minutes, I relaxed and feels like whatever happens, it’s good for us only and Baba will take care of everything and went back to Hyderabad. After 1 week, we got the news that our H1 got reaffirmed and Hyderabad embassy asked us to come for stamping and we got the stamping. It’s all happened by Sai grace only, so again within 1 week my husband and I went to Shirdi again to tell the thanks to Baba.
Baba we never forget You in our lives. If I have tension, every time I will do 7days parayanam and the problems will be gone and we will get piece of mind. We love You Baba.
