Faith And Patience, As Encouraged By Baba

Anonymous Devotee from UK says: Please allow me to start by saying that Baba is amazing with His ways. I also want to thank all other writers who have shared their experiences here because I have no somewhat come to understand the power of faith and unconditional believe. The experience that i wish to share is in relation to my career. Like most others, my career is my priority and being in my mid-late 20s. I made a decision to move to UK for 2 years. Here, i am working on contract basis, due to my visa restriction. Also, i will admit, i am only human and i shamefully fall into the category of those who tend to think and pray more in what is perceived to be more difficult times than when everything is going smoothly.

When i first moved here, it was Summer and everyone was on holidays and I was unemployed for almost 2-3 months. Initially it was okay, being in a new city and trying to settle- I have always seen myself as an independent girl, so, moving away to a city where there are so many people, yet i knew no one, wasn’t as daunting as being out of a job. I was going for a couple of interviews, but none of them seemed to work. One Friday, i got a call from a recruiter for a job that’s one hour away to commute to (which really, in London terms, wasn’t too bad). I didn’t even have to go for an interview for that role. It wasn’t the job that i was looking for, but i believed because it came to me rather easily, i took it. I was there till December. After that, again, i was out of a job for another 3 months. This time i felt it was the worst time of my life. I was going for interviews and i knew i smashed them and did so well but they were not working out. These were for companies which i still wish to get into and for roles i knew were perfect for me. Feedbacks were all great from the interview and i made it to the top 2 preferences, but that was it. All the signs were pointing to a job that i felt was definitely meant for me, but that was another heart break. So many times, i felt deceived. Somehow, i kept on praying.

My mum was always worried for me, and she was/is my strength to continue praying and believing that all will happen in due course. She would also go to the Baba temple back home and make prayers for me. I was angry and upset for weeks- i stopped going to temple, but i don’t know how or why i somehow brought myself to at least say a quick prayer thanking for the day before i went to bed. I didn’t know what to believe in at that point. Why was it so difficult for me? I don’t know. They said it was my time. But i felt, if Baba really was around, should my time really matter? After being felt cheated by the interview outcomes, i just decided to leave it to God, to Baba to decide what i should do. I knew i wanted to stay here longer and I deep down i knew that i am in the right place. I did the 7 days of book reading and the week after, on a Wednesday, i got a job. Again, it wasn’t my dream job, but still a job none the less and something to add on to the resume. The people i work with are so nice and the type of work i am doing now, although it’s basic, it’s something different to add to the resume.

I am going back on the job hunt as this job is finishing in 2 months. So, I pray for a job that would help me grow. And yesterday I went to temple and had the pleasure of helping to serve the Prasadam. And i received the candy that i like and a flower too. I would like to think that this is going to be a good week. From my experience, whatever said and done, I believe in Baba. Whenever i go to temple, there is a sense of peace that makes me believe i am doing the right thing by being here. I believe somehow that I am meant for great things, like everyone else and that Baba will guide us there. Being back in the job hunt category, i know, is going to be a little stressful again, but i believe that something will work out. Something has to. With Baba’s blessings, i am sure it will. It’s almost one year now since i moved over and I have now starting to have friends whom i can rely on and are just incredible people. I want to thank Baba for bringing these people into my life. I believe Baba protects us all. There’s a reason for things to happen the way it does. I just pray that we are able to find the strength to continue our lives believing in something greater and that we find our path to do the greatness we are meant to spread in this world. For that, I pray for guidance. I pray that i shouldn’t let jealousy get the better off me and I pray for patience. To all those reading this, faith and patience as strongly stressed upon, is key. And to know that you’re here for something great and to make a difference and leave your mark. Have faith and Baba is surely to watch over you. Om Sai Ram

Baba Changes My Life

Anonymous Devotee from India says: Baba came into my life with the help of my fiancé. My fiancé gifted me Baba’s Photo and Udi. He is great devotee of Baba’s since his childhood. Being a NRI he uses to go to Sai Baba’s Mandir in abroad also. Our relation is blessing of Baba.

People know that the greatest difficulty for a family is to procure a suitable bridegroom for a girl. Help in discovering a proper match for a girl or boy. Sometimes success seemed to be within reach but fate scattered his hopes at the crucial moment. In deep despair he sat in front of Baba’s photograph. Baba came in my life through my fiancé. Before meeting with my fiancé, i was not a devotee of Baba. Actually we both met with each other on a social site. Very first we saw each other in a Smagam at Chandigarh. Actually my fiancé is a NRI. Problem is this, i m a 28 years old jobless girl. Me and my fiancé decided to marry with each other. Next month our marriage has been fixed. We both are in a relationship since last three years and he loves me a lot. Even in abroad he uses to do Pooja almost daily. Actually we both do not believe in Kundali. But his family is kind of orthodox. They are saying that there is some problem in my Kundali, so we can’t marry with each other.

My parents do not believe in Kundali. They don’t know that his family is against this marriage. My parents have done all the arrangements for marriage. Date has been fixed and hotel has been booked. Even my all relatives know about my marriage, but my fiancé’s family does not want that this marriage should be done. And now my fiancé is saying that his company is not ready to give him leave for the marriage. Either he has to resign from the job. I don’t know what is going on with me. Every single situation is against me. I have only faith on the Baba, because with the help of Baba, he got this present job. Now he has to choose either his job or the marriage with me. I don’t know is he lying to me because of his family pressure or something else. Baba because of You, we met and fall in love and when our three year relation is converting to the marriage it seems that everything will end. Baba You have shown me the path at every single second. Please save my life and it is question of dignity of my parents. They love me a lot, when they will come to know about the reality they will get shattered. Baba please help. It’s only You who can save this relation and can change the whole situation. Om Sai Ram. Love You Baba. I know You are always with me.

Baba Asking For Daal Chaawal

Sai sister Pooja from Canada says: I had a dream. Last night i saw myself with my family at unknown place. Then Sai Baba in white clothes with a bag came to us and asked for Daal Chaawal. We gave Him a plate of, i don’t know some white thing. Then He left, what does it mean??? Does it suppose to have some meaning because i am Punjabi and my family and i have never been to Shirdi.

  6. Sai Baba, Dakshina and Rule of Law

    09 May 2013 by Leeladhar V V

    Sai Baba, Dakshina and Rule of Law
    Sai Baba used to send some children to Marwari’s or money lenders in Shirdi and used to take loan from them, and in the evening Kakasaheb Dixit and Nana Saheb Chandorkar used to check up from whom Sai Baba used to take loan and they used to repay the loan. Some of the people who got the money from Sai Baba never spent the money but they used to save it and purchase some assets.

    Now please read this : Chakra Narayan, Retd. Asst to Dy. Police Suptd. Thana, was Police Fouzdar at Kopergaon when SHRI SAI passed way. Though highly sceptical of SAI in the beginning, Chakra Narayan later developed high regards for HIM. What impressed the Fouzdar most was SAI had full control over HIS senses and nothing could sway nor tempt HIM. Whatever SAI got as dakshina in the form of cash or kind, HE scattered liberally. After SAI's Mahasamadhi, the police took possession of HIS cash which was only Rs 16/- just enough to cover HIS funeral expenses. But it was noticed that when alive, SAI was disbursing much more than HE received. Wherefrom came the excess for SAI to pay, none could make out. Chakra Narayana was convinced tht SHRI SAI was a true saint with divine powers.

    Thus we can say that Baba being a divine power knew what was the collections being in the form of Dakshina and how much money he had to disburse forehand only He used to take loans and thus the account used to be balanced. Sai Baba being a Divine personality never used to go against the Law, it would have been easy for Baba with so much of powers to materialise things but He never went against the law of the land. He was a law abiding citizen and expects the same from His devotees.

  8. A Short Biography of Shree Swami Samarth
    *****Saraswati Sonareen*****
    There was a lady named Saraswati Sonareen263. While singing Abhanga264 she
    would break into tears and then wander like a crazy person. Sri Swamiji had favoured
    her with kind grace. Whatever Sri Swamiji would speak in a mysterious way, she would
    understand the meaning. She would maintain herself by begging. She would feed dogs
    and wander everywhere. When Sri Swamiji would get angry he would never listen to
    anyone. At that time devotees would look for Sarswati Sonareen and Manyaba and
    bring them to Sri Swamiji. Seeing those two Sri Swamiji would get pleased.
    Once some people from Narasinhawadi in Kolhapur, Maharashtra, had come to
    take Sri Swamiji’s ‘Darshan’. They asked Sri Swamiji “Maharaj, who are you? ”. Sri
    Swamiji said “Mool Purush, Vatavriksha, Dattanagar”. Then Saraswati Sonareen explained the meaning of Sri Swamiji’s words to those people and said “It is the original
    person, one who sleeps on the leaf of an Indian fig tree, has taken incarnation in the
    form of Lord Dattatreya”. Sonareen with a fiendish behaviour possessed latent powers
    and hence Sri Swamiji liked her very much.

  13. Sai mas
    thanks for making the event a big success
    please be there holding my hands always and showering me with your blessings
    luv u
    falling at your lotus feet

  14. God, please make my heart cold. Fill it with anger and unbending will. For those who have hurt me, who have made me vulnerable, let me not be manipulated by their professions of caring and guilt. They are the reason for my misery, and they feel guilty about it and try to be nice to me. Do not let me forget that this niceness comes out of guilt and not out of concern. Make me cold and unbending. Make me strong. Never let me fall for anyone even if they are my best friend.

  15. Sai baba,

    please bless and be with our family always….please bless my parents….please make her a good session timings for my daughter physical therapy….please help my son and daughter to get good grades…and my husband good job(high position)…please help us to be with you always….thanks baba for everything,,,
