My Merciful Father And His Kindness – Anonymous Devotee

Anonymous Devotee from USA says: I am a small devotee of Baba and I live in USA. Hetal Ji please keep my name and email id anonymous. I have already shared my previous experiences in this blog many times. Hetalji, before I start, I want to thank you and your team for doing such an amazing job of maintaining this website. Following are few experiences in my recent times and they are very dear to me. I apologize if they are lengthy or have any mistakes.

Baba saved me from unemployment

One thing I fear the most in my life is unemployment. I have been through 1 yr recession in USA, but got job by Baba’s mercy after a very tough time. Since then, I beg Him not to make me jobless. I always ask Him to give me other project before losing the current one. He is only taking care of me till now from 2010.

As it is 2013 year end, many of you might have known how tough it is to hold on to jobs, especially in IT Contracting industry in USA. As usual the client, which I was working was having budget crunch and they were stopping the projects like crazy and there was no new work. My current project was till Jan 2014 and I thought job extension after that is impossible. If at all I lose my job in the year end (Nov/Dec), it is very hard to find new jobs. This was in October 2013 and I was literally praying and crying for Baba’s help. I always go to question answers site to relieve my stress by asking solutions to Baba. One such day, when I was too depressed and was fearing of job loss and my financial burdens, I went to and entered a number thinking of Baba and asking Him about my future. He gave me the following answer:

“Very soon there is Gurupushyamrut Yoga. (The day when Jupiter is entering the Pushya Nakshatra). On that day important work will be done. You will be happy and free from worries by November, December. New projects will be undertaken.”

I was very happy that He gave me a positive reply that I will undertake new projects, but I was wondering how will I be undertaking new one’s when my current one is till Jan 2014. Then time passed by and November month came. Suddenly our current project members were called to a meeting and were told that the project, which we were working on and was about to go live in Jan 2014, will be shutdown. This is a big shock to everyone as it is a very big project and it is almost done. They said they will try to find new projects to place each one of us, if not they cannot help. I felt like they were saying that they were going to fire us soon.

That weekend I passed in heavy tension and I was waiting for Monday to listen about any new projects they can push us to. And you know what, my kind merciful father keep His promise. He gave me a project, which was till April 2014. I was assigned to that project along with other person. In a span of 1 week, they changed the second team member 3 times, but I was not moved. I am still here and working in the new project.

Only God knows what I would have done, if at all I lost my job. I had so many financial fears, so in one way He saved me from a big calamity. As He promised, He gave me a new project, which was till April 2014 (longer than the one which I was working). So from this, I want to tell all the readers that our merciful father will save us from calamities. When there is no other way and no one to help us, just ask Him for His help and trust His words. Keep faith and wait, He will never let us down. Om Sai Ram!

Baba saved my father

My father is Stage 4 Chronic Kidney patient. His next stage is dialysis and it is life threatening. He is a very good man and never had any bad habits. Still he is suffering a lot. Previously he had issues with blood clots in the brain. When he got attack 3 years back, only Baba saved him from paralysis and other adverse situations. Even doctor agreed that it was nothing, but a miracle that my father is ok. 2 years back, he was diagnosed with this Kidney disease, which was unfortunately in advanced stage. So he had a restricted diet and he has to take 15-20 tablets daily. You can imagine his plight of such situations at the age of just 55. I always pray to my father Sai Baba about my father’s health.

In the past few years, Baba is the one, who saved his life. Being in USA, I cannot see my father often and I feel very guilty of not able to take care of my father. All I can do is pray to Baba and read His Satcharitra. I am in a helpless situation due to US Visa rules. It’s a very sad situation for all NRI’s, who are unable to be there with their families due to visa issues. Recently my dad had a surgery for some gland removal in his neck. That gland controls the calcium levels in the body, but because of the Kidney disease, it had to be removed. After the operation, my mom said my dad became very weak and was unable to walk as there was no calcium in his bones. He became very depressed and gave up hope. So I rushed to India to be with him.

In 2 week trip period, I was able to go to Shirdi on the 2nd day by Baba’s grace. After my Shirdi visit, miraculously my dad recovered from surgery and was able to walk and get back to normal routine. Though his kidney illness remains the same, this was a slight relief for me and everyone. I came back to USA and my mom said, my dad recovered well after I came. Internally I thanked my merciful Baba a lot for saving him. After 1 month I came back, I spoke to my mom on phone one day and she sounded very depressing. I asked her why she was so dull. She said my dad had very high BP and had other symptoms of Diabetes. They visited doctor and they said Kidney levels are not good and they also wanted to test for Diabetes.

I was heartbroken. I felt very bad for my dad as he is already eating nothing because of Kidney/BP issues and having lot of tablets daily. If he is tested positive for Diabetes also, it would be a nightmare for everyone. My mom was very sad and was feeling bad that my father is suffering a lot though he never had any bad habits and is a very good person. Next day morning I cried in front of Baba at my home in USA and asked him to save my father from death. I randomly opened Sai Satcharitra, these are the lines I saw:

A story about Bapusaheb Booty
“A great astrologer named Nanasaheb Dengle told one day to Bapusaheb Booty, who was then in Shirdi, “Today is an inauspicious day for you, there is a danger to your life”. This made Bapusaheb restless. When they, as usual came to Masjid, Baba said to Bapusaheb – “What does this Nana say? He foretells death for you. Well, you need not be afraid. Tell him boldly, “Let us see how death kills”. Then later in the evening Bapusaheb went to his privy for easing himself where he saw a snake. His servant saw it and lifted a stone to strike at it. Bapusaheb asked him to get a big stick, but before the servant returned with the stick, the snake was seen moving away and soon disappeared. Bapusaheb remembered with joy Baba’s words of fearlessness”.

What a wonderful story at an appropriate time. I feared for my father’s life. In this way He blessed me and spoke kind words of fearlessness. I am at least little bit at ease after hearing Baba’s words and His Abhayam to save my father. His words came true. The diabetes test came negative and we were relieved once again. I can really say that, only Baba is taking care of my father till date and it’s a miracle that he is still ok. Baba is the real savior. Oh Baba how can I repay Your debt in this life or in several lives. Kindly stay by my side and my family’s side always. Thanks Sai Ram. Om Sai Ram!!

Baba saved my dog from death

We have a dog who is (2 years) now. He was healthy, but never used to eat his food from his puppyhood. He is almost like my son as you know how pet owners get attached to their fur kids. At the age of 1 year, my dog stopped eating food for 2-3 days. We thought it was normal as he always does that. On 4th day, I gave him curd rice as he was not eating his regular dog food at all. He likes curd rice so he ate it. I went to office after that. Luckily my husband works from home and he called me when I am in office. He said our dog was crying and was running around in so much pain after eating curd rice. He immediately took our dog to a Vet.

They did some X-rays and found nothing. They did not understand why he was so much in pain. They suggested us to take him to emergency vet clinic and not to home as there was something serious which they cannot find. We took him to emergency and kept him there overnight. They gave him some pain killers. Next day morning we went to pick him up, his condition was more serious as he was in some kind of shock and trauma. He did not respond to his name also. He had so much pain in abdominal area. The emergency vet doc suggested us to take him to a speciality vet hospital. We took him to speciality animal hospital and they took our dog for examination. We were waiting in the room for the doctor to come and tell us what happened. Honestly we were expecting something like stomach upset which can be cured by medicines.

The doctor came and told us that, immediately a surgery needs to be performed to find out the cause. After the surgery there is 50%-50% chances and if no surgery is to be performed there is no hope and he will die within hours. Frankly we were in shock to hear such devastating news about our puppy as we thought he was a healthy pup. We chose for surgery. They scheduled a surgery that afternoon at 2 pm. Me and my husband went to Baba’s temple mean while and begged Baba for our dog’s life. I also promised Him that I will give up one of my favourite food. We were able to get some UDI from the temple to put on our dog’s forehead before the surgery. As the temple was very far, we reached the hospital at 2.10PM and we thought it was impossible to put UDI as our dog would have been already taken to surgery room.

When we enquired at the front desk if the surgery started, the lady told that they just took our dog to the operation room and surgery did not start yet. Though being an American and on seeing our condition, she agreed to take the UDI which we got and put some on our dog’s forehead. Miracle was that after she put UDI only, operation room was closed. It was the hardest 45 minutes of my life and we were so afraid of losing our sweet puppy. Surgery went well. They found that, there was a puncture in his intestines due to ulcer. They said they don’t know how ulcer was formed for such a young puppy. The condition which led to the surgery was “Septic Peritonitis” in which animals have only 80-20 chances of survival. In such cases the animals have only few hours to live. In our case though there was 1-2 days delay due to lack of proper diagnosis also our puppy is saved from death.

I need not tell my fellow Sai Bhaktas about what a relief we felt, that Baba saved my dog’s life even with such low chances of survival. They also diagnosed him of Inflammatory Bowel Disease. With such disease, the animals need to eat only certain variety of food, if not they will have inflammation in their tummy which makes them not to eat any food. Then we understood that why our dog was not eating his food from his childhood. Today he is doing fine and we were able to correct his food requirements also. We are very thankful to our merciful father that He even saved an animal’s life. He saved our dog from death and saved us from a very bad heart break. Thanks Baba for Your mercy on our family. We all can never repay Your debt. Om Sai Ram!

There are many other experiences in my life which I will share later. Reading Satcharitra gives me so much peace and saves me and my family from so many calamities. I request all readers to read Sai Satcharitra daily, at least a little. Believe in Sai Baba wholeheartedly and leave everything to Him. Keep faith and wait. He will definitely take care of us and He will keep His promise.

    We have heard a lot of Palkhi/Padyatra procession in Maharastra. Many palki processions comes to Shirdi also. In the Palki procession the devotees walk all the way to Pandarpur/Shirdi singing and dancing along with a palki. This practice is age old and even during Baba’s time Mahalsapathy went on a Padyatra to Jejuri.

    Every year Dnyaneshwar’s Palkhi exits Pune and traverses the Divae Ghat on their way to Pandarpur. This is a difficult path as its barren with without any villages near by to give water or render any help if the need arises. Every a volunteer group of about 70 young men from the Sai Das Mandal Pune offer them water and jaggery and some snacks. They volunteer from 9 am to 6 pm they also joined by a group of volunteers from Bhivandi Mumbai.

    On June 30th 1996 Appasahib R Shivale had gone to Shivaji Nager Baba temple and brought 5 packets of udi with him. He was busy giving water when an unknown gentleman came up to him and asked him for some udi. He inquired, “Why do you need the udi?” He told him that a 12 yr old volunteer from the Bhivandi group was very sick. He had intense itching all over his body and was desperate. It was intolerable and he was tearing his clothes off his body. The group wanted to take the boy 10 miles away to Saswada village where they might find a doctor. But because of the crowds of pilgrims walking together they couldn’t over take them on a vehicle. So he took Appasahib to the boy. Appa mixed the udi in a glass of water and made him drink it, then he applied udi on his entire body and a short while after the boy was relieved of his agony.

    He asked the group if they knew that man but they didn’t know him. Nor did the young know who he was. The man was a total stranger to Appa also. Just then the Arati “Shirdi maje Pandarpur” was heard on the loud speaker. Wonderstruck Appa sat a while and thought “How did that man know that I had udi with me?” He then searched for that man but he had disappeared then it dawned on him that he was Baba.

    The ways of saints cannot be predicted, they use all sorts to cure devotees of their sickness which are unconventional even by traditional or modern standards. In Sai Satcharitra Chaper XII Sai Baba said "Those who are fortunate and whose demerits have vanished; take to My worship. If you always say 'Sai, Sai' I shall take you over the seven seas; believe in these words, and you will be certainly benefited. I do not need any paraphernalia of worship – either eight-fold or sixteen-fold. I rest there where there is full devotion". Here we see one more such case of unconventional treatment given by Sai Baba after His Mahasamadi

    Smt Mani Sahukar author of the book The Saint of Shirdi had a severe throat infection in 1950. Being a sincere student of Hindustani classical songs, she was unable to sing due to her throat infection. She consulted many doctors but in vain. She then visited Shirdi and prayed at SAI SAMADHI for the cure of her sore throat. When she returned to her room behind Gurusthan at about 7.30pm, she heard something rustling in her sari and a small paper packet dropped on the floor. Wondering what it could be, she picked it up and opened it and guess what she found. No, not udhi but seven tiny white globules commonly used in homeopathy. Her friend on hearing this from Mrs Sahukar, told her to take those tablets as SAI prasad which the latter did by putting them all in her mouth. On her return home from Shirdi, Mrs. Sahukar found to her immense joy that her throat was clear and she could sing as before. Wow! What a miracle.

  10. A Short Biography of Shree Swami Samarth
    Vallabhesh Brahmin – His Protection.
    Even after his samadhi, Lord Sripad Srivallabh has manifested himself and
    performed many miracles. There was a Brahmin named Vallabhesh from Karnataka
    State. He travelled across villages for the sake of his business. Whatever profit he made
    from his business, he considered it as blessings of his Guru and spend it to offer food to
    the Brahmins and other needy people. Once he vowed that if he gets abundant profit
    that year, he would celebrate a festival for three days at the samadhi place of Lord
    Sripad Srivallabh.
    That year, Vallabhesh gained hundred times more profit in his business. He
    thought of going to Kuravpur for celebrating the festival and giving a feast to the
    mendicants. The news spread in the village of Kuravpur. There were three dacoits in
    that village that planned to loot Vallabhesh on his way to the village. When Vallabhesh
    started for Kuravpur with all the material required for the festival, the dacoits
    accompanied him in disguise of travellers. Vallabhesh trusted these travellers not
    knowing their true identity. On their long journey, when they halted at a place, the
    dacoits cut off Vallabhesh’s head and went away with the loot. At the time of his death,
    Vallabhesh had mentally recited the name of Lord Sripad Srivallabh. Lord Sripad, who is
    worthy of remembrance, ran out to help his devotee with his Trishul50 and Sword and
    killed two dacoits. The third dacoit was a kind person. Hence Lord Sripad puffed up
    some sacred ash through the third dacoit on Vallabhesh and brought him back to life
    before disappearing. When Vallabhesh came to life, the kind dacoit told him the real
    facts. Hearing the true incident Vallabhesh became very unhappy since he did not get the Divine sight of Lord Sripad. Thrilled with this experience of Divine favour, he
    reached Kuravpur, celebrated the festival with great pomp and gave a feast to all.
    Even today, thousands of devotees experience the Divine grace of Lord Sripad

  11. Wonderful experiences all.

    O Deva thank you for surrounding us with Your disciples and devotees who make this world a better place. Thank You O Sadguru for hearing and pleas and saving us from all calamities.

    Thank You O Sai for all the Love and Miracles 🙂

    Jai Sairam

  12. Om SAI RAM
    I have oone importnat question to ask to all Sai Bhaktas.I have started Nine Guruvar Sai Vrat .In this Vrat I asked My Beloved Baba to cure my grandmother as she is suffering badly.I asked Baba to either cure her completely otherwise end her sufferings as we cannot see her in so much pain.But always deep in my heart their is always a guilt feeling that I cannot fulfill her last wish of getting me married to a good guy.Ultimately a day come that is 3rd March She left us .Now my mother is asking me to continue my vrat untill I got any prospect groom for marriage as somehow Baba fulfilled my wish and end up her sufferings .What I will do? Can I do Uddyapan on 9th Vrat or Continue it till my marriage got fixed Is it possible to continue the Vrat ?Please suggest me What to do?
