Om Sai Ram. I have been reading experiences of Devotes from last many months and always wondered if I will get an opportunity to write my experience. Baba listened to me quickly even though I was not His staunch devotee. Before writing my experience, I would like to share how I come to know about Sai Baba. After my sister’s marriage in 1997 in Bhopal, she visited Shirdi first time. This is when I first time heard about Baba. When I got engaged, I got to know that my fiancé is also Sai Baba devotee. After marriage, we visited Shirdi twice. It was a wonderful trip through, for my wife, it was spiritual journey and for me it was more of entertainment. After my son detected for a chronic genetic disease, my wife started playing Sai Baba’s Aarti three times (Kakad Aarti, Dhoop Aarti, and Shez Aarti). She got more attached to Sai Baba.
Recently, we face another problem related to my Job. Due to company’s bad shape, there was no growth. Salary was decreased. My wife also left job to take care of my son. And the expenses started rising and we were left with virtually no money to survive. With a meagre salary, it became very difficult for us to survive. I was trying for job from last one year but I was not getting any response and I lost all hopes to get a good job. As the company’s position worsened, our salaries got delayed by 3 months and on top that fear of termination from job any time. My wife prayed a lot to Sai Baba for job. One day, we were sitting and discussing the situation. She told me that how wonderful it would be, if by March you get a good job by all aspects. All aspects mean, good salary, good company, good position, my satisfaction in terms of growth and learning and foremost Saturday and Sunday should be off. But then she said it is not possible. We did not have that good luck and moreover we have been trying from so many years. In the meantime, my mother who is ardent devotee of Lord Krishna also developed interest in Sai Baba. She started reading few miracle books of Sai Baba and Shri Sai Satcharitra. Now even as I was very depressed and frustrated due to fear of losing job and insult after that. My wife told me to get as many as Miracle books from net. I searched net and found few sites on Sai Baba’s miracles. After reading few experiences, I also started reading miracle books at home and I also started reading Miracles from different websites. (Though I read Shri Sai Satcharitra few times whenever I faced any problem but benefited too by being selfish, I forgot Baba immediately after the results were achieved. I also done Parayan once or twice)
Now how miracles happened. In Feb, I got a call from a reputed company for Interview. Before Interview they wanted documents. As I never got any documents from my existing company and several people changed in between. Baba solved this problem and I got all the necessary documents very soon. Now the next problem was I did not have Marks Sheets of my M.Sc. final year semester as the result was awaited. I opened website of Institute to check if the result has been declared but it displayed that result is not declared. I was sitting in my office and prayed Baba, please don’t leave me in between. You have to be with me till everything is finalized and even after joining the new company so that I can perform as per expectations. Company will ask final semester marks sheet. Within one hour or even less, I got call from Institute that your result has been declared and you can download the marks sheet. I told the lady that I checked the result few minutes back and site did not show any result. She told me that it is displayed on new site. I immediately checked at new site and found that I got 70% marks and I also printed the marks sheets. This all happened within one hour. I was surprised and was thinking that what good karmas I have done due to which Sai Baba replied to my prayers so quickly.
During these two months, I experienced several other miracles as well. From last one month, I had severe back ache along with stiffness in my neck. I could not even move my neck and even turning side was very difficult and painful for me. One day before sleeping, I asked Baba that if He is really a God, then by morning my back ache and neck stiffness should be healed. I also added a condition that it should be healed completely and when I wake up in morning, no pain should be there in any part. Now readers can very well imagine, what happened morning. When I woke up, I remembered what I prayed last night. I stepped out of Bed and there was no sign of pain anywhere. I was so surprised and I could not believe it. I checked again by doing several exercises but everything was perfect. I wondered how Baba can listen to my prayers when I lack faith and patience and I am very selfish and I always doubt on Baba.
During these days, I also prayed Baba to appear in my dream as He appeared in dreams of several devotees. One day I prayed Baba and chanted His name before sleeping. And again Baba listened to my prayers so quickly. He appeared in my dream in a beautiful way. I saw that Jaya Wahi Ji (Author of Sai Baba is still alive book) gifted copy of her book to me and some other person. I took books in my hands to look at beautiful picture of Sai Baba. The picture of Baba was very clear and moreover I forgot most of the dream except this scene. So three miracles happened back to back within few days. In fact, Sai helped me in several other ways to prepare for new job. He has given us so much in last few months which I think I did not deserved. I pray Baba to bestow me with faith and patience and His Love. Baba, You know I never wanted too much money, too many pleasures. I want to be a good human being first and want to follow path of truth, honesty, affection, kindness, devotion and patience. Please hold our hand till we are in this world and even after we leave this world. Sai, I still has to go long way. I am very weak and I cannot go through this life journey without Your love. Please call me to Shirdi before I join my new job. Baba, I Love You.
