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 yoursaibaba.com 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.
