Om Sai Ram These 3 magical words which bought me a lot of happiness in my world. I and my entire family believe in Shiridi Sai Baba a lot. We had a lot of experiences with Him till date and it is the time I really want to share one of my recent experiences with the devotees of Sai Baba. My main intent in writing this article is to thank my father Shiridi Sai Baba Who gave me the courage to fight back all the sins I committed and to in build the same courage and faith in the Sai devotees who are under pain and stress. I want the devotees who read my article to get relieved of their worries and tensions by uttering the 3 greatest magical words “Om Sai Ram” since, I was the same devotee who was completely in stress and pain a few days back and today I am almost relieved of my tension only and only because of my father Sai Baba. When I was under the same stress and pain, I came across this wonderful website and read few experiences of Sai Baba devotees which gave me a lot of courage. A big thanks to the all the people working on this wonderful website and thereby providing happiness to all the Sai devotees in the world.
Firstly, I request all the devotees to have complete faith & trust in Sai Baba and surrender to Him. Please utter “Om Sai Ram” and you will overcome all the sins you have committed. Such are those 3 greatest words. To start with my experience, Two years back I completed my post graduation and was waiting for a job. I had campus placements in my college but I was unable to clear even my first round. I had no other person to tell my pain and I was in distress. My loving parents had spent a lot of money on my education though, they had very less earnings and it was the time I felt I should look after them and do something great for them. My parents saved every single paisa of their hard work without having meals and spent the money saved for me and my sister’s education. And I was unable to clear none of the many campus interviews I attended. I worked very hard to get over the interviews. At that time, Lord Sai Baba came to my rescue. I prayed sincerely to Him to provide me with a suitable job so that I would look after my parents and reduce their burdens. I made a habit of writing the Sai Name and reading the Satcharitra of Sai Baba. I have a habit of picking up chits in front of Sai Baba when I am in a confused situation. I put 2 chits in front of Sai and He helped me in picking up saying that I would get a job definitely.
Almost a month was done and my placements was about to end but I did not get a job. My mind was always wavering if Baba’s words would come true or not. I thought that I would be placed in a good job if God really exists. I told my parents about the same and they supported me saying that I would definitely get a good job. And finally on December 28th 2010, with Sai Baba’s help I got my first job with the highest package than any other company has offered. I cannot exclaim how happy I was. Baba’s words have come true. I was really very happy and celebrated the 2011 New Year with my parents. I thanked Sai Baba for providing me such a good job. But the story did not end here. General human tendency is when happiness is around you and you achieve your goal, you forget everything. We forget even the person who helped us to gain the happiness. I was into my job for 2 years and got busy with the work schedules. I forgot Sai Baba and His help completely. I stopped writing the Naam Jaap and reading Sai Satcharitra.
In the mean time, my marriage was fixed and I got engaged last year. Due to the death of my fiancé’s grandfather, my marriage was postponed to this February. My husband stays in foreign and his Visa was about to expire. However, he already applied for the renewal of his Visa last year. As per our plan he was expected to get his Visa approved by our wedding this February and then an immediate travel. Unfortunately, due to our bad luck/past committed sins, his Visa was stopped since the immigration people required other documents. He had to work in India until he gets his Visa petition approved. He cannot travel as his Visa expired. My parents, my in laws and my husband along with me were completely shattered and didn’t know what to do. We do not know if the Visa will get approved or not. We were deeply in sorrow from the past 3 months. Since my husband had to work from India until he gets his Visa approved, we moved to Cochin and stayed here. The place where we rented our new home was exactly beside a big juma masjid. Daily morning it was really a nice view to see a holy place from the window of our suite room.
I used to pray to Sai Baba sitting in my room having a look of the Masjid. Every day, I started reading the Sai Satcharitra the way I did 2 years back. I cried a lot alone in my room when my husband was out for work. I cried and asked Sai Baba to provide Visa approval for my husband. I asked Him to forgive me for forgetting Him and for the sins I committed. Some inner sense of mine was telling me, “Unless Allah forgives you, I cannot do anything.” “Allah is God” “Pray to him”. I started worshipping Allah along with my father Sai Baba to forgive me for the wrong deeds I have done. From the past 3 months, I had sleepless nights. My food intake became less. All I had in my mind was “Baba, please forgive me and approve my husband’s Visa” “Allah, Please forgive me and approve my husband’s Visa”. This happened for 1 month. I prayed to God that if my husband’s Visa get approved, I would definitely not forget His help like the last time and would go in a righteous path instead of committing sins again. Whenever I read the Sai Satcharitra, something used to tell me “Please be patient. You will be relieved of your pain shortly”. I begged Him for peace and happiness.
Sai Baba heard my prayer this time too and finally on April 16th 2014, My husband’s petition got approved. I had tears in my eyes. I did not know how to thank Sai for the help He has done. I do not want to say thanks and end my relationship with Sai. Instead, I want Him to be my father in all the births and keep guiding me into the right path. I want Him to stay in my soul by following His principles and teachings. Seriously a lot of relief for us now. And now we are yet to go for our Visa stamping shortly and with Sai Baba’s help. I hope that would also go well. My heartfelt thanks to my father Shiridi Sai Baba for believing and forgiving me another time by helping my husband in getting his Visa petition approved. I would like to thank Sai for helping me write this content and sharing this experience with all the Sai devotees. “Jai Sai Ram”
