My Trip To Shirdi
Anonymous Devotee from India says: Om Sai Ram, Thank you so much Hetal Ji and your team for giving us all the wonderful experiences of so many devotees. Please do not disclose my name and id. Feel free to correct all the grammatical mistakes. I am a very simple devotee of Baba. He has been with me always even without me realising it. I come from a not a very happy family. However Baba has blessed me with a very good family.
But for a few reasons, I haven’t been able to enjoy their love and affection. But I am always thankful to Baba for having given me a godly like father. If not for Him my living might not have come to such a stage. Since this is my family background, my studies became me very strong and only pillar. I was first introduced to Baba by my uncle, who is an ardent devotee of Baba. I will be ever thankful to Him for this.
Now let me relate my first and only trip till now to Shirdi. I so wish that He calls me again to Shirdi. Though my father isn’t a follower of Baba, he never stopped me from praying Baba. He respected my belief and that gives me lot of respect for him in my heart. Since I asked me to take me to Shirdi, he arranged for it though it took 2 years for the plan to work out due to my father’s work. Once the plan was ready for me, my mom and my father to leave to Shirdi we got sad news about my great grandmother’s sister in laws demise. She was very close to my family. But since we had already booked the tickets to Shirdi, I didn’t want it to get cancelled as it was my 1st trip. And my father agreed to the same. However I didn’t realise that Baba gave me an indication that day not to start my trip that day. So I left to Shirdi by bus. Baba has shown in His Sai Satcharitra that no one can go to Him unless He wishes for it. And if he still went, then he will face problems and yes I did face problems, when I started the trip. I will relate what they were.
when we reached Shirdi, we went to the lodge. My father had booked prior. But since we had reached earlier to the time booked, we had to pay extra cash to get another room as the room we had booked was not free that time. When we left to Sai Mandir, I bought a big garland to Baba, but when I went in the queue there were two queues, 1 for people to stay there for Madhyan Aarti, and the other for people to go fast. I didn’t know that and I went in the other queue and couldn’t see the Aarti by standing in front of Him. However He let me have His Darshan from the side window outside.
I went near Dwarakamai and my mom asked me to enter it. But may be Baba didn’t want me to enter it so I told we will go there next time without me in my proper senses as it was getting late for us to leave to Kolhapur as that was my mother’s wish to go there. Still regret the fact that I could not enter Dwarakamai. We booked a cab from Shirdi to Kolhapur and back to Shirdi which cost us every expensive. And I felt sad for this, but Baba did help me even here. We had to book a cab in Shirdi for Kolhapur and we knew no one there and not even the language to as anyone for help. However my father asked about this from a travel agency that was nearby. Baba helped us here also. Immediately we got the cab quickly. And by Baba’s grace we got a very comfortable car to travel.
We left Shirdi in the afternoon and reached Kolhapur by 12. We knew no one was there, but by Baba’s grace some unknown person at that time immediately came for our help and got us a lodge to stay. We had a very Darshan of Lakshmi Maa. Thanks to Baba. After the Darshan and Kakad Aarti there, we left to Shirdi, which we reached on time to our pre booked bus. I still regret that I couldn’t stay there longer. I couldn’t see all the places there. I couldn’t spend my time in Dwarakamai. I am eagerly waiting for Baba to call me to Shirdi. I am a medical student, who gave my final year exam in June 2013. I prayed to Baba that if He made me pass my exam in one my first attempt in all the subjects then I will come to Shirdi during my 1st 6 months of my internship. I am waiting for my results and I wish I pass my exam without any problem, so that I can make it Shirdi. I will still wait for Your call Baba. Please call me there so that I can experience every bit of Shirdi with calm and composed mind Baba. Please bless me Baba. Om Sai Ram.
My Failure Experience
Anonymous Devotee from India says: When I planned to go to Shirdi, Baba rejected me. I am a die heart devotee of Baba. In my home, all my relatives learned from me to become Baba devotee. Suddenly I got strike and planned to go to Shirdi on my birthday that too it came on Thursday. I was really happy. I booked train tickets before 2 months of my birthday. I got ticket and booked online Aarti everything and was waiting for my birthday to see Baba.
Just ten days before of my birthday, my relative was admitted in hospital and was very critical. I got upset and was thinking whether we will go to Shirdi or not? I was praying every day. But my father told to think Baba and we will go and fall in His leg. We just asked to one of another relative, they told don’t go now the person who’s in hospital is very critical and it is our wish. So I cancelled the ticket. But my relative died after 2 weeks of my birthday and I was very upset that I missed a chance during my birthday. But everyday I think why Baba neglected me to Shirdi. He doesn’t want to see me it seems.
I was very upset. But again next month I have booked ticket to Shirdi. I will see whether Baba takes me to Shirdi or not. Moreover 2 times ticket got cancelled. Why I don’t no! Always Baba troubles me during my trip to Shirdi. I will see this time. All of your pray for me that myself and my parents want to go to Shirdi to get Baba blessings. Sai ram!
My Real Life Experience
Sai Sister Rajashree Ji from India says: Hi Hetal Ji, First of all I want to say a big thank you to you. You are doing too good work. God Bless You. Sai Samrtha, Allah Malik. Now I am starting my story. Today is date 31st August 2013 at 8.30pm. Before 1 month back, I told to Baba to fulfill my wish (here I am not mentioning my wish). Days went through, but I didn’t get any single or any positive result. I got from Baba about my wish. Baba always shows me there presence (since I came from Shirdi to till date and till time). And I told to Baba, “Baba, please give me positive result till 31 August2013, otherwise I will become alone and upset”. My all hope was depending on Baba and Today date.
Now the miracle is here. I was standing in window thinking about my wish and talked with Baba about same. Suddenly one old person came on the road (which is front of building and my home window) and he shouted loudly something. I didn’t understand what he was saying. So I just wait for him to come near my window side road and he comes. He was saying–“Allah Malik, Baba tumhara bhala karega, bhiksha dede” (Baba, bless you, give me dakshina). When he was going from window side road, he put his hand in air (his hand direction was almost to my window) and he said, “Sabar Kar Tera Bhala Hoga” (Have patient, you will get blessed). This is the biggest thing in my life, which happened with me today itself. Just keep “Shraddha and Saburi“. Bolo Sainath Ki Jai.
