Sai Navgurvar Vrat Mahima
Anonymous Devotee from USA says: Sai Ram Hetal Ji, You are doing a great service as I feel this blog is more or less equivalent to the modern Satcharitra. Reading the devotees’ experiences here gives us hope that Baba is very much present and responds to His devotees in distress if their wishes are pure.
I come from a normal middle class family in USA where my father is the sole breadwinner. One day, my mother was complaining to my father that he never pays attention to God and does not do any puja. They had an argument and she felt quite upset. That day itself, we got a call that my dad was in an accident and he crashed into a building. We were relieved to hear that he was fine. However, when he crashed into the building, a lady who was in the building got hurt. We were scared as we know in USA that any small thing can be made into a huge deal if it involves people and make us pay a huge amount of money.
We got a call from that lady’s husband that they had to remove her gallbladder, which didn’t make sense to us. The next day, they already appointed a lawyer, who asked about my father’s assets. My father didn’t say any specifics, but he told him he was a normal person, who has to pay for my sister’s and my college tuition fees. Then my mother started the Nav Guruvar Vrat to get us out of this mess.
Meanwhile, our insurance wanted to pay all the money under our coverage for the other family’s medical bill without any investigation. Even after the insurance payment, we would have to pay about $200,000, which is a huge amount. While my father was consulting with his friends and his company’s lawyer, my mother was doing her Vrat as usual. On the 7th Thursday, my mom asked Baba to please show some indication as this is going nowhere. That night itself, my mom got a dream in which she saw an old Sadhu, who looked similar to Baba. She asked Him if their case is going to be solved. He said there will not even be a case and nothing bad will happen to us. She was happy. However, opposite things seemed to happen when our insurance told that they are going to pay the full amount and advised us to either pay the asked amount or consult a lawyer. It is as if Baba was testing our faith.
My father was very tensed while my mom had full faith in Baba. After the Vrat, my dad got an e-mail out of the blue from the family’s lawyer that they accepted the full amount from the insurance and they were fine with it. My dad was stunned and he himself realized it was purely due to Baba’s miracle. Out of this incident, two good things happened. After the accident, the police officer, who attended the situation, made my father take the health examination. In that test, we found that his blood sugar levels were very high and there was even some protein in his urine. If this didn’t happen, his diabetes would have gone unnoticed and he would have had much serious complications. Now, my father also tries to go to Baba’s temple every Thursday. From this incident, all I can say is that if we hold onto Baba and surrender ourselves to Him, He will always protect us and will look after our welfare.
Anonymous Devotee from India says: Baba, in every aspect, You are helping me a lot. I don’t know what’s happening now Baba. Baba, I love Pardhu a lot. I don’t know what happened to him suddenly. He stopped talking to me and started saying that he is not interested in love. How can boys say like that? Ours is a matter of 3 years love. Not understanding what to do. I know he can’t live without me. Even I can’t live without him. I love him a lot Baba. Baba, until now You helped me in every aspect. Please bless me with him, Baba. Unless until he has some problem, he never talk like that. He is not even saying me the problem. Please Baba if he has any problem, please help him in solving it baba. Baba, You said to have faith and belief in You. I always believe in You only Baba. Please change his mind again. Except this I never ask anything to you in my life Baba. Please change his mind. Please bless us Baba. Ours is true love. Please Baba, please please please please please please. OM SAI RAM.
Anonymous Devotee from USA says: I want to share my experience. I began praying to Baba from the last 11 years and He, because of His limitless mercy, has always answered my cries for help. This is my latest experience. I noticed a lump in my breast two weeks back and got extremely worried. The doctor advised for a mammogram to confirm it’s not anything suspicious. The day before the mammogram I went to our Sai Mandir. I wanted to do Archana, but was not sure because we were getting late. But the priest of his own accord took our name and gotra, when he was about to perform Archana for another family. I really felt so happy that Baba understood my fear and concern and spoke in the form of our priest. With Baba’s blessings, everything went on fine and there is nothing to worry about. I want to hold His feet and rest my head at His feet for the rest of life and in future lives too if any. May His grace act as a Raksha (protection) for each one of us. Loka Samastha Sukino Bhavantu.
