Baba Gifted Me A Great Job

Anonymous Devotee from UK says: I have been living in London for a long time and wanted to share an experience when I lost my job and how Baba helped me to find a new one. Due to recession in 2012, I lost my job in an investment bank. I live alone in London and all my family are in India and the US.

I was sick for a month or so in July 2012 and although I was promised that things would be normal at work, I was made redundant during one of those headcount reduction exercises. I was utterly miserable and had lost faith in having any sort of future given my ill health and redundancy. I got calls for interviews from several firms at first but I couldn’t get the job as I was either over-qualified or that the job was a contract one as opposed to my previous job which was a permanent one for six years. In October, the severance pay came through and I found that I could live with it for a few months. That relief was short-lived as I started to realise that the job market was so bad that it might take more than a few months to get a decent job that would pay for my mortgage and bills in the future.

I tried to let out my flat and move in with some friends until I found a job but every time someone came to view my flat, it was very painful to imagine somebody else living in my flat. I never intended to live in my flat forever but I just knew that I wasn’t ready to move out yet. I decided to spend some time away from London during Christmas as there weren’t any job around that time. When I returned to London in January, things didn’t get better. I was so miserable that I thought I would go crazy if something didn’t turn up soon. I was losing hair and weight due to the stress as well. I had a great interview just before Easter in March and was hopeful of the outcome after a long time. But it didn’t work out either! During the Easter break, I applied to a job in another investment bank which was not too different from what I was doing before. Surprise, surprise, I got a call after the holidays. They set up an interview in a couple of days. I had three rounds of interviews and with each one, I felt more hopeful and started to like the job too. I got a reading from the Answer book that I would get good news on Ramanavami day. I waited to hear back on Ramanavami day and finally just before the day ended, I did get a call from HR to say that they are going to make me an offer. After almost 8-9 months, I got a job in a good bank with a pay that was a lot more than what my previous job offered was indeed a miracle. May Baba bless us all, Sai Ram

Baba’s Miracles

Sai Brother Senthil from USA says: I am a strong Sai devotee for the last few years and writing down the miracles that happened in my life. I owe everything to Sai. I suffered the most in my life last year (2013). Though few good events like my marriage, my parent’s visit all happened i was put to a jolt when my visa was denied. I lost my job and had to wait until 2014 for my visa to come. Each and every day i prayed Baba sincerely. Me and my wife were running into lots of financial issues and by that time my visa too was denied. Though my visa was denied i prayed to Baba with patience thinking that it was all for my good that it was not supposed to happen last year. I spend money lavishly without thinking how much a dollar means too many.

In this small time frame i have learnt enough about what life is and the value of money. We took everything step by step from then keeping Baba in my mind. My wife got a new job with a better salary and we moved to a new place. Every day when i pray an inner feeling tells me someday i will get the visa selection in lottery this year. There’s not been a single day without praying to Baba. He has never let me down. And today i got the golden words of my life that my application is selected in the visa lottery this year. All prayers to Baba. He has been with me at all tough times and taught me the best lesson. Never lose faith for He does good to all people who think good. Jai Sai

Sai Baba Listens

Anonymous Devotee from Canada says: I am a devotee of Baba since almost 14 years. I have great faith in Him that if you pray Him with utmost devotion, prayers get answered. I am a Consultant by profession. My son was struggling with swimming lessons. I had tried my best what I could do like provide him with private lessons and his regular swim classes. He always used to fail. I started feeling low as well as my son started losing interest as he was not making any progress. During that time I came across Sai Baba Vrat for 9 Thursdays. I enrolled my son on Thursday for his swim class. My whole family started praying to Baba to help him get through his difficulty. You won’t believe by Baba’s grace, i was able to complete my 9 Vrat successfully. My son also started praying to Baba to pass him. Every Thursday we used to light a Deeya for Baba, by His grace he started passing in all his tests. I don’t have words to explain how Baba has helped in difficult times. I would only like to say keep faith (Shraddha) and Saburi (patience) very strong as Baba tests to see who is His staunch devotee. Thanks Baba for Your blessings. Om Sai Ram

  3. Baba Fulfills Devotee's Desire

    S. Syama Rao

    Sri Sainath Maharaj provided an opportunity to me to visit Bhuvaneswar in February. Sri D. V. L. Narayana Murthy and Maj. E. B. Patro, also a Sai devotee, joined us in Bhuvaneswar. After visiting Puri, Jagannath and Konark, we went to Dhenkenal – where a beautiful Baba Temple has come up in a spacious eight-acre area near Kapilas, about 12 kilo meters from the town.

    After participating in the Muhurath of Baba's installation on Thursday (21SI) in the morning, we wanted to visit the nearby Kapilas shrine on the hills near the Baba's temple. All the three of us were waiting for the bus. No bus came for almost one hour. When a bus came and stopped after one hour, we tried to get into it. But there was no space, not even to keep one leg. So we came back. I said that if Baba wills, he will take us there." Just as we entering the main gate, a Baba devotee, Sri Chopra was taking some Pundits to Kapilas. He offered to take us along with them to the Kapilas Hills by car. We were surprised at this offer, as it was not even five minutes since I said 'If Baba wills he would take us there.”

    At the Hills, there is a beautiful temple and a Shiva Linga. There along with the Pundits, we also performed Abhisheka chanting Rudra, Chamaka, Sri Suktha, Purusha Suktha, Durga Suktha, etc. This was a bonus granted to us by Sai Mother. We were immensely pleased with Baba's concern and compassion to his children.

    Baba showed His kindness once again. We were returning to Bangalore the same evening. We went to Cuttack by bus, waiting there at the Railway Waiting Hall. As there was about half an hour for arrival of the East Coast Express, our friend, Maj. Patro, went to have his bath. Meanwhile, the train arrived before the scheduled time. So were informed the same to Maj. Patro. He told us to proceed and he would join us. We kept his wrist watch, spectacles which he had handed over to us to look after near his luggage, and we went to into the bogies. Maj. Patro also joined us after some time with his luggage. But he forgot to take his spectacles, without which he was helpless. While the train was about to start, a gentleman who was sitting in the retiring room noticing the spectacles came and handed over the same to him. It is a miracle of miracles how he came to know the bogie number and remembering the person handed over his spectacles. Baba has no limits for His love and concern for his dear children.

  4. Dear first devotee, your experience reminds me of my brother's experience because it is almost similar. My brother left the job in 2013 due to internal politics and work stress and could not get job for almost 8 months even after attending multiple interviews. That is when I started Sai Nav Guruvar Vrat and by Baba's grace, my brother was blessed with a good job with good package. Om Sai Ram 🙂 Love you O Sai 🙂 Please be with us always. Falling at your lotus feet 🙂

  5. Sai maa
    There is so much of stress
    Please please take away the stress
    Let us be happy relaxed and healthy
    Luv u my maa.please hold my hand and help me maa
    Falling at your lotus feet


    Real faith Booster all of them:)

    Babaji everything in your hands, please bless this girl.

    Love to ALL, Peace to ALL:)

  7. Dear first devotee, I'm going through the same situation as you at the moment. I was made redundant in April, have been to 14 interviews until now, but all the time been rejected. I have done Baba's vrat (8 Thursdays until now). I have put all my faith & hope on Baba, but I don't understand why Baba is testing me more. I'm losing my patience & so depressed that I feel like committing suicide. Why is Baba making me drown instead of helping me? How much more does he has to make me suffer?

    • Sai Ram, I am the first devotee. My suggestion is stop counting the number of interviews you're going for as failure. Think about it, 14 different companies think you're a prospective candidate and wanted to meet you. Its a good sign. Every day, just think about what you are going to do that day only. Don't think about more than one day at a time. I posted my experience to give someone else strength and hope. I hope it's you. Good luck.

    • Dear Devotee,

      If u want to go long way in sai path then the only advice is to have saburi",no other go :-). I did so many times "sai parayan" and also fasted to get job & got it but only after a year.

  8. My wife and I are blessed to have you in our lives. Daily our love for you grows stronger. We, like all have had challenges in our lives but with your grace we have overcome them. Once again we have such challenges but I know that with Baba' s blessings we will overcome these. Patience and Faith are the key. Love you Baba.
