Saibaba Fulfilled My Wish
Anonymous Devotee from India says: Hi Hetal Ji, I am from India and I know Sai Baba from the last 6 years. But I became an ardent devotee of Him from 2011 onwards. This is my first post. Sorry Baba for posting this experience so late. First of all, I would like to thank Hetal Ji for this wonderful service. May Baba bless you and your family. Dear Sai Devotees, please bear with me for the long post and please edit my post Hetal Ji, if required.
There is a Sai temple near my place. The temple authorities take out Sai Baba’s palki procession every year. They take Baba’s palki to devotee’s house. For that, interested devotees have to give their names to the temple authorities and the blessed devotees, whose names are taken out through draw, Baba’s palki came to their house. This year I have also given my name for the same. But unfortunately, when draws are taken out, my name was not in the list of those blessed devotees, where baba’s palki was going.
I felt very sad and I cried in front of Baba. On the very night, when the results were drawn out, I saw a dream. In my dream, myself, my mom and my aunt went to market to buy Sai Baba’s chola (dress). We chose pink dress with a turban for our beloved Sai. Later my mom changed her mood and selected red colour (chola) dress with a turban. I felt a little disappointed because I wanted to buy pink dress only, but later I agreed when she bought a border for Baba’s chola. The border was in a zig zag shape. She said that Baba will look beautiful in red dress. This was my dream.
In that afternoon, my mother and sister went to market for shopping. On returning from market, my mother told me that she bought a Sai Baba’s portrait. Baba was wearing turban in that picture and the shopkeeper told that he himself will deliver the portrait at our home as the size was very big to carry. It reminded me of my dream and I felt very happy. So I was eagerly waiting when he will deliver the portrait. We do Dhoop (evening) Aarti(at 6pm) of Babaji at our home. At that evening, I told my mom to do Aarti alone as I had to go with my friend for some work. But at 5:30 pm, guest arrived, so I canceled my plan and decided to do Aarti as my mother was attending the guest and was eagerly waiting for the delivery of the portrait.
I made all the arrangement for the Aarti. At around 5:30 pm, door bell rang, when I went outside the shopkeeper was there and he handed over the portrait to me. When I unpacked the portrait, I was surprised to see that Baba was wearing the same red chola with the same border in the zig zag shape and with a turban. Tears started rolling down from my eyes and I did Aarti of that very portrait on that day. Baba’s ways are unique. He knows how to make His devotees happy. And on the day of the palki procession, Baba’s palki came to a devotee’s house in our sector only, close to our house. My mom’s friend called her up, who was along with the palki to take Baba’s Darshan. When we went there, Baba again surprised me, when I saw Baba’s idol in the palki. Baba was wearing the pink dress with a turban and it was the same dress I had presented in Baba’s temple some months ago. My joy knew no bounds. I was crying with joy and was thanking Babaji that He is listening to my prayers. Baba, please bless us all and forgive our mistakes, which we did knowingly or unknowingly in this birth and our previous births. Bless us. Love You Baba . Om Sai Ram Jai Sai Ram.
Sai Baba’s Presence In Every Step Of My Life
Anonymous Devotee from USA says: My family and I are Sai devotees for generations. There are so many experiences of Sai’s presence throughout our lives. Sai had always been showing us the right way in our lives. This is my recent experience. I did my masters in the USA and I was searching for job for almost 9 months. I had so much pressure in mind. It affected me to the core. And see how Baba showed His presence.
It was when I had No Job, Loan problem and Family situation and besides everything, now it’s my turn to take care of the family. Life was frustrating. But whatever happens all that we thought In our family is Think of Baba, Pray to Baba. He will take care of you. But when problems arises people’s mentality about God and Guru totally changes. You will be pushed to an extent, when you think “how much I pray to Him. He never helped me”. I even went to that state and then I was like I should do this, everything happens for a reason. Sai is like our Mom and dad if you suffer it hurts Him too. But all that He wants from you is not getting hurt it is just to tune you to be a better person.
I am basically a spendthrift. My thought is all like get money easily spend be happy. But internally when I pray to Baba, I say I wanted a job. I want to earn money enough to help at least one person. Ultimately if I had little money also, I would spend it useless, besides knowing my situation. I Thought and thought why I am not getting job besides being qualified and then I realized my mistake one by one. Baba does it for a reason. He wanted me realize my responsibility and act accordingly then I will get a job. I still remember it was such lonely days I used sit in front of my laptop asking question to Sai clicking on number talking with Sai with His picture on my laptop.
It was a Tuesday. I said Baba I realize my mistake please. I promise I will not make this mistake again please give the strength to control my mind and please save me. The same week Thursday morning, I was going through the blog reading Sai’s miracle thinking, when a miracle happen in my life started to read about a devotee getting a job just like my situation. Then I asked Baba when will I get my job like this Baba. Immediately my phone was blinking. It was a mail from a company, whom I thought had rejected me after my interview since they haven’t got back to on time. The mail was “When would you start if you given an offer”. I was confused as in whether I got the offer or no. Immediately one more mail “Please sign in the offer and send back ASAP” and joining was the following Monday.
That was the moment was like SAI BABA thank You so much. That moment I can never forget I just finished listening to my favorite SAI’s song “Reham Nazar Karo” and I just said I surrender completely on Your feet Sai. Baba “I believe You made me write this for a reason and I have written whatever You directed me to write. I believe in You completely. Baba, You are always there with people, who are true to their heart and true to You. You are our mom and You are our dad holding our hands throughout our lives to make us walk in the right path. Love You so much SAI” . Please give me strength to control my mind. Please be with me. Please with all the people and guide us through our problem. Please show us the path of light.
Sai Bearing My Karma
Anonymous Devotee from USA says: Om Sai Ram. I experience His presence all the time. But this particular experience will show how He burned Himself into ashes to pass me with my karma. By bowing down my ego on His holy feet, I would like to share one of my many experiences that show His grace on me.
One day, as part of my daily routine lit the lamps and performed my puja, and left for the office. After an hour, I received a call from my roommate, who came home for taking some documents, saying my apartment was on fire. When I came to the site, there were three to four fire engines. The whole puja corner was in fire. The fire was caused by the wick fire crystal falling on the wooden stool covered with paper towel. The whole apartment was on smoke.
Here starts the grace of lord Sai. My friends and my valuables including certificates visa etc were safe, very very minimal materialistic loss. She came for documents, which saved us from much big disaster. When I came to know that the whole pooja corner was in fire, I felt that Baba was angry on me and He did this, but I was wrong later when I started thinking why this happened to me. I realized that in my horoscope, I had fire threat, which was removed by him in this way. Over the course of time people around us in our community started analyzing the penalty we had to bear for fire accident, but here comes the miracle we didn’t even shed a penny as penalty, which would have been great burden as my earnings were low. I solely believe Sai was responsible for this situation to be this smooth. He burnt Himself into ashes to work with me getting over my karma.
