Celebrating MahaShivratri With Sai Baba – Sai Devotee Priyamvadha

Download MahaShivratri With Sai Baba Wallpapers Images Greetings Wishes & Quotes

Sai Sister Priyamvadha from Singapore says: I am a Sai devotee from Singapore. I was on a vacation and had to be in Bangalore with my family during the Shivratri period. It was due to my Guru’s Grace that I was drawn toward knowing the Supreme Soul, Shiva. This experience is how Baba helped me celebrate my first Shivratri. For me, this is more than a Miracle, because I asked Him to show me one Shivlingam and He arranged the Temple trip for me, where I saw all the 12 Jyothirlingam models in India. He is Sarva Shiva for sure.

I was never devoted and spiritual in my life before, but knowing Sai Baba exposed me to many truths. With Sai Baba Miracles in my personal life, I was drawn toward Lord Shiva, the Supreme Soul. I wanted to celebrate my first Shivratri, but we were in Bangalore. Also, that the 27th Feb was my last day of Sai Vrat and I had to choose between two. In my heart, my Guru Sai is equal to Shiva God. So I decided that I will complete my Vrat in Singapore on March 6th and decided to celebrate Shivratri. I woke up at 3 am on Shivratri and watched a Shiv Mahima movie on YouTube till 7 am, taking breaks in between.

I was a guest at my sister’s house in Bangalore, and when I enquired about the Temples, they said it was very far and almost forgot about it. I didn’t want to bother them too as it was a weekday and they had to make arrangements for my Temple visit. I asked my sister to tell me about a nearby Temple and she told me that she was not very sure of which deity was there. I prayed to Baba that please, Baba at least let there be one Shivlingam in that Temple. When we went to the temple, I was so excited and surprised because it was Gowri Maa’s Temple. I watched the movie in the morning and I felt that first I got the Darshan of Parvathi Matha. I did not see any Shivlingam Idol, so I prayed to Her to bless me on Shiv God’s behalf. As I was praying, the Pujari brought a small Shivlingam in brass and placed it in front of the Parvathi deity. I was so pleased when I saw the Shivlingam and I almost forgot to pray. I was feeling overwhelmed that Sai Baba could make me visit the Temple and I could pray to Shiva God. On my way back, I preferred to walk and while I was walking, I saw all the deities. I used to pray in Singapore in my Pooja driving past me. I saw all of them in cars, and for me, I felt that I could not go to the temple, but they were always around me.

I decided to fast and I just had some coffee and a banana. My mother mocked me, but I did not care much. I asked my husband to take me in the evening to the Temple and we decided that after my daughter sleeps around 4-5 pm, we will start for the Temple. Usually, I act like sleeping so that she sleeps soon. But unfortunately, that day, as I was feeling weak from fasting, I slept at 4 pm and woke up at 8 pm. I really felt very bad that I slept and missed the Temple plan. Suddenly, my husband and brother-in-law decided to go for a long drive and Temple. I got ready in ten minutes and within no time we were near a Murugeshwar Shiva Temple in Bangalore. It was like a Miracle to me, there was no traffic and we reached The Temple Within 10 Minutes. I almost gave up hope of visiting a Shiva Temple in the evening, because I slept and did not want to ask my sister or brother-in-law. My brother-in-law is an atheist and my sister would challenge me to talk to him and make him prove God’s existence. I don’t like to hear anything against God, so I don’t encourage such arguments too. But look at Baba’s Mahima; He made my brother-in-law take me to the Temple that evening.

We reached around 9 pm and were waiting outside in the queue for 1-2 hours. I thanked Sai Baba so much because He made it possible for me. There, I remembered how I asked Baba to show me one Shivlingam in the morning. Outside the Temple, there was a 65 mt tall Shivlingam. While I was getting ready in the morning, I looked at His photo and just ordered Him, “You are taking me, Baba. We are going to the Temple, Baba.” I really didn’t know what to pray remembering my own words. I felt that I was funny enough to order Baba, but it was also a blissful state for me because He arranged it. Inside the Temple, it was designed like a cave and had all the 12 shrines of Jyothirlingam in India.

I and my husband did the water Abhishekam for the Shivlingam. I asked Baba to show me one Shivlingam and He took me to a temple where all the models of the 12 Jyothirlingams were present. This is really Sai Baba’s miracle, where I was in Bangalore, a city where I have never been, and as a guest. I can only say Baba is a great event manager and that’s what I call Him too. He really does things in a way beyond our imagination. It was my brother-in-law, who is an atheist, who told me in the morning to forget about the Temple plans, but Baba made him only drive and take me to the Temple. He did not come inside the Temple, but Baba made him do it. Even the slightest or tiniest of our heart’s desires are read by Him, and He makes it happen. I feel really blessed to know Him and be with Him.

It is truly wonderful that you had such a special experience during your first Shivratri celebration, and it’s great to hear that your devotion to Sai Baba led you to a deeper spiritual connection with Lord Shiva. Your faith and devotion to your Guru were the driving force behind this wonderful experience, and it’s clear that Baba was looking out for you and guiding you toward this amazing opportunity. Your story is a testament to the power of prayer and the amazing things that can happen when we have faith and trust in our Guru. It is also inspiring to see how Baba can work through people who may not have a deep spiritual connection, such as your brother-in-law, to bring about His divine plan. Thank you for sharing your story, and I wish you continued blessings and guidance from your Guru Sai Baba.

    "All ways of knowledge are your aspects, Goddess! So are all women in the world, endowed with various attributes".

    — Durga Saptasati

    "Ma", "Amma", "Mummy or Mom" — calls the child. And wherever she is and in whatever job involved, the MOTHER Instantaneously rushes to her little one to Offer comfort. Sai Baba is our divine mother as He rushes to the beck and call of His children.

    It was the 7th October, 1987 the holy Poornima day when I participated in the 'Punnya Thithi' of His Holiness Narasimha Swamiji at the Sai Spiritual Centre. I prayed to SaLBaba to bless me with a pleasant pilgrimage to the Devi temples at Horanad and Sringeri, as we all had planned to leave on that night. I got the response from Sai Baba 'Don't worry. I am ahead of you'. I felt in the same manner as Shama felt when he sought Sai Baba's approval to go to Gaya and Prayaag. Sai Baba in His own inimitable manner had then stated: 'I will be ahead of Shama at Gaya'.

    We reached Horand in Chikmagalur district of Karnataka — about 360 km. from Bangalore. There Devi Annapoorneswari has taken her abode amidst picturesque slopes of lush-green western ghats. I was dumbstruck at the beauty of the place and magnificent temple. The Mother Goddess is indeed lively. At once I remembered my own mother “SAI”. “Whenever our soul surged with joy or despair, 'AMMA' we would scream at once For, who else, save you shall care And give a ready response?"

    Yes, very true, 'Every mother is a constant angel waiting for her beloved children's call, she being a guardian by night and guide by day.

    Opening my mouth and as if touching heaven and the nether world, with my jaws, I uttered 'AMMA' and felt I had seized the ' Annapoorneswari — the Mother of the universe. I drew Her to me like a fisherman drags fish in his net. After the vision of Mother, this primal love deepened. I saw Annapoorneswari as Truth standing above all dualities; To her I surrendered everything. I prayed to Her taking flower in my hands; 'Mother here is thy knowledge and here is thy ignorance. Take them both and give me only pure love. Here is thy holiness, and here thine unholiness. Take them both Mother and give me pure love. Here is good and thine evil. Take them both Mother and give me pure love. Here is thy righteousness and here is thine unrighteousness. Take them both and give me pure love.'

    After taking the 'Arathi' I was relaxing in the outer precincts. Suddenly my grandson, Chi. Keshav Sai Prasad.virtually dragged me to a side and exclaimed: 'Grandpa, your Sai Baba is here also'. ,My joy knew no bounds to see Sai Baba's big portrait at this temple, t remembered Sai Baba tellingShama: 'I am ahead of you at Gaya'. He was ahead of me at this abode of Annapoorneswari too.

    A word about Horanad Annapoorneswari temple. A family is maintaining this temple. At any time of the day or night if a devotee-visits the temple they are treated with utmost courtesy and hospitality. It is indeed a 'home away from home'. For either the food or accommodation money is not charged. Of course voluntary offerings are accepted. The temple is more than a century old though it was re-built a decade ago. Annapoorneswari feeds Her children with love and affection here.

  2. We took leave of our 'AMMA' and proceeded to Sringeri on the banks of Tunga river — 75 km. from Horanad. At Sringeri, Adi Sadguru Shankara established his first Mutt and the presiding deity is Mother Sharada — the Goddess of Learning. The evening 'Kumkum Arvhan' was going on when we entered the holy temple of Goddess Sharada. I remembered the prayer offered to Goddess in 'Chandi Saptasati': "Oh Devi, you who remove the suffering of ,your supplicants, be gracious. protect the Universe. O Devi, you who are the ruler of all that is moving and unmoving. When pleased, you destroy all illness; but when wrathful you frustrate all longed-for desires. No calamity befalls those who have sought you."

    As I looked at the magnificent Devi, I noticed the dazzling light emanating from both the eyes. Devi reminded me of Sai Baba's saying: "You look to Me; I look to you". As I was sitting in that Sharadamba temple I remembered Sai-nephew Dr. G.R. Vijayakumar who was just 18 km. from Sringeri till May 1986. Even though he had invited me a couple of times to visit his Sai-abode as well as go over to Sringeri, I could not fulfill his desire. Alas, Sai's ways are mysterious. Now Dr. Vijayakumar is away at Nilgiris, far away from Mother Sharadamba.

    The next morning i.e. on the 9thOctober, 1987 we had bath in the sparkling waters of Tunga and then went to the Shankar Mutt on the other bank "of the river. We were fortunate to witness the pooja and abhishek. We also had the previlage of obtaining the blessings of His Holiness the Shankaracharya of Sringeri Mutt.

    We went round the samadhis of previous Acharyas of Shankar Mutt as well as the Vidyaranya temple which is known for its architectural beauty. Though it is over 600 year old the architecture of those days is something marvelous. In the sanctorum 12 pillars are built in such a manner that when sun traverses a particular planet the sunlight falls on the particular pillar. I had no words for the architectural skill of Indians of yore.

    From Vidyaranya temple we went back to Sharadamba temple. The Noon Arathi was in full swing. I saw that mother's chest was covered with bright light and waist with a dazzling golden belt. I had an intution. that Mother would protect me with her protecting golden belt and make me drink amrosia from her shining breasts for the sake of Moksha — immortality. His Holiness the Shankaraoharya also arrived then and again blessed' me. The son of Sai Mother became one with Mother Sharadamba. Mother is all love. Her son became L-O-V-E personified. Mother is all purity. The son became 'holiness itself. Mother is all bliss -Ananda Mayee. The infinite bliss of Sai Mother has engulfed this son.
