Sai Baba Helped Me With My Work Visa

Sai Sister Mish from India says: I have been reading experiences from Sai Baba devotees from quite some time. Given the fact that Sai Baba has blessed me all my life. It’s time to post mine. I have been an ardent Sai devotee since the past 15 years. I was hardly 11 when my parents and I went to Shirdi for the 1st time. The moment I was there, it just struck a chord and there has been no looking back since then. I have lost count of how many times Sai Baba has helped me all along in every walk of life. May it be exams, any difficulties, job. Just about everything Sai Baba has always had my back. I’m a witness to Sai Baba’s miracles almost all my life. When I was home during my college days, I used to go to Sai Baba temple every Thursday for Aarti no matter what. After my studies I had to move to Mumbai and Pune for my job and since the places were new to me, I wasn’t sure if I’d find a temple close by. But I was pleasantly surprised when i found out that Sai Baba temple is just a walk away from home.

Last year my marriage was fixed and we were planning to have it over a weekend. But somehow no matter what we planned we were just not able to fix a date and my parents ended up fixing a date on Thursday as there was no other muhurta. When my parents came home and told me about it I felt blessed. I knew it was Sai Baba letting me know He is always by my side. After marriage I moved to US on a dependent visa. After a week or so I asked my husband if there are no temples nearby. He said there is one close by and we decided to go there to pay a visit. When I went inside I was shocked to see it was Sai Baba temple and Baba was sitting there smiling at me. I was literally in tears. I hadn’t even expected to find a Sai Baba temple in this foreign country. Being on a dependent visa I am not allowed to work and visa filing for work happens only once a year in US and it is extremely tough because of numerous reasons. So I had planned to study further but deep within I wanted to work. Visa filing happens on April 1st and employers prepare for the filing months in advance because of the various forms formalities and documentation involved.

One day when I was studying I suddenly got a call from my husband on 19th march that his employer wants to have an interview with me on 21st march (within 1 day). I said 1st of all I am not prepared at all and secondly even if I make it through, it’s already 21st and we won’t make it to the visa filing so fast. He said it’s your 1st interview in US. Take it as an experience and just answer the interview to know how interviews happen here in US. On 21st march I had an interview with the director of the company. By evening I received a call from the HR that I have been selected and they will start my visa filing process. It was all least expected. On 24th March they started the process and were able to file my visa just in time in 1st April. After visa filing there was another challenge. The quota is only 85000 and this year there were 172500 applications. And there is a computer generated random lottery selection that selects applications. So the next hurdle was to get picked in the lottery among so many applications. On 10th April the lottery was conducted which was a Thursday. So I was totally relieved. I knew that if lottery has happened on Thursday I will be picked no matter what.

But almost a month went by and applicants started getting receipt notices. I was waiting for mine but didn’t receive one. I started losing hope because USCIS had stopped issuing receipts. I cried and fought with Sai Baba. I asked Him how is it possible that I haven’t received my receipt yet even thought the lottery was on Thursday. But eventually I gave up and thought may be Sai Baba has better plans for me and thought since Sai Baba has helped me all my life He will in this situation too. Yesterday all of a sudden from my employer I received an email with my receipt notice. I just couldn’t believe my eyes. I was crying with joy. Getting selected among so many applications was no joke. I just took a look at my receipt. The date said 29, 2014. I promptly added up the numbers and found out it adds up to 9. I was stunned. And if that wasn’t enough I checked my receipt number and that adds up to 9 too. I know Sai Baba has sent me this receipt and now I’m waiting for my approval. But since Sai Baba has shown me two 9s in my receipt I am more than 100% sure that my visa will be approved. Just look at how the sequence of events unfolded and fell in place one after the other. I have seen so many dependents here staying since past so many years, having no job and not getting visa sponsorships. I feel I am truly blessed and Sai Baba has bestowed His blessings on me. Thank You Sai Baba for everything. I will continue to be Your devotee till my last breath. You are more than a friend and I love You very much. Om Sai Ram

Baba Made Business Decisions Change- Just For Me

Anonymous Devotee from India says: I am Baba’s kid from Bangalore. Baba has been everything to me since the time I have come to know about Him or rather since the time He choose to be with me. Baba is my family. He rules my head and heart. I have literally felt His presence everywhere and like many others, He appears in front of me in some way or the other. His appearance has always assured me that I am on the right path. I have always felt that He has designed/been designing my life for me and the rest of my family. I am confused as to which experience I should write about here as I have a lot of them. Truly blessed and infinite thanks to my Lord for being with me. Om Sai Ram

I used to work in Bangalore for a “Not so likeable” boss. We were a small company. I had a responsible role to perform and I was one of the oldies of that company. My boss was short tempered and manner less. One day, I got late to work and as per the policy, I called up and informed whoever was in-charge that I will be late to work. Unfortunately for me, when I was about to enter the office at the time I had mentioned I would come in, the boss had come out of his chamber and was walking outside the office. We were face to face. I wished him politely and he in turn, started yelling at me. I was embarrassed by his response initially and when his temper and voice raised, I was in tears. I was an employee of that company and did not expect to be treated like this, that too in front of all the other employees. It was totally disrespectful, especially when I had informed before hand and he very well knew that I had informed much in advance. I did not know how to react or what to do. I silently walked to my desk, worked until evening and got back home. I had Baba’s framed photo in my room. When I entered my room and saw Baba’s photo, all the emotions I had with held since morning surfaced and I locked my room and started crying. I remember seeing Baba’s photo and saying “Baba, I just don’t want to work for this fellow anymore. Send him away”.

My boss and another person were running the company under a partnership. The next day, I went to work the usual time. Soon as I entered, my colleagues started signalling me saying something was going on at office. There were murmurs and there was pin-drop silence. I was confused, just went and sat in my place. I came to know that there was a high level meeting between the partner and my Boss, there were a few raised voice arguments and “banging-the- table- noises” from inside the conference room, and the Boss walked out from the conference room to his chamber in a not-so-good mood and that he had been asked to hand over his part of the company entirely to the partner and that he was no longer needed in the business and the partner would take over the company 100%. Can you believe it? I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. That day I was the happiest, not because he was chased away but because I had experienced my Sai Ram being with me completely. I came home, saw Baba’s photo and said, Baba! You were spot on! Give me Hi-Fi. Did You just do what I wanted? You are in believable. His Photo smiled back at me. May my Baba help you all too in every step of your lives. May His Glory be sung every day, everywhere and May you all experience His presence every day. Love You Sai Ram. Jaya Jaya Sai

Om Sai Ram-Baba Blesses Me Always

Anonymous Devotee from India says: I’m a big devotee of Sai Nath and would like share my experience with you all. Sai Baba has blessed me and my family a lot of times by His heart touching miracles. In February all my family was planning a trip to UK to Visit our relatives staying there, so me and my sister applied for our UK visa and got rejected because we did not submit the documents at all. We then questioned Sai Baba that where did we go wrong to which His question answer book replied that again we should do this thing legally and give some wheat in charity which we did and then my parents, my sister and I again applied for the visa with all the documents this time. And I have a small Sai Baba calendar at my shop which indicated me that by the 14th May i will get my visa. I told my sister about this and exactly on the 14th we all got the visa without any hassle. I thank Baba for everything. He fulfils all my desires in no time. Thank You so much Sai Baba. Your blessings and miracles keep me alive. Om Sai Ram

  1. Sairam devotees,
    I have come across many devotees' experiences where they came into the grace of Sairam through dreams, saisatcharitha presented to them by somebody, idol gifted to them etc. But I did not have any of this blessing. After attending a yoga program, I felt the need to have a guru. I had read about many saints like Shirdiwale, Raghavendra, Kanchi Paramacharya and many more. I decided to follow our dear Baba when I was around 30 years old. Sometimes I have a doubt as to whether I have his grace at all? I sincerely pray that in my next birth I come under the influence of our dearest Guru right from my birth.

  5. Sai Baba's Blessings

    By Sai Mani R. Jaya Mani

    "Mentally I have renounced everything. I give no importance to any lesser duty, but have devoted my attention wholly to Thee – to loving Thee and serving Thee. I love not crowds, but crowds of souls who love Thee. Bring no one to me who loves Thee not, who does not want to love Thee. Draw only those souls who are seeking Thee, or in whom the desire for Thee can be kindled. I want naught from other human beings but to talk with Thee in them, and to quaff Thy love from the cups of their hearts.

    •Sri Sri Paramahansa Yogananda "The Divine Romance"

    Belong to a staunch Vaishnav Brahmin family hailing from Thanjavur district in Tamil Nadu. In the forties, my father was working as a local fund auditor at Cuddaiore, South Arcot District of Tamil Nadu. At that time, Sri Narasimha Swamiji halted at Cuddlore and was doing Sai-propagation for some days. My uncle and my elder brother used to attend his lectures and pooja regularly and give my parents the gist of the lecture everyday.

    After one or two years, it so happened that I fell ill for about a month. Due to high fever, my condition became serious and the Doctors advised my mother to take me to the Municipal Hospital immediately. At that time, my father too was out of station. My mother prayed to Sai Baba and vowed that she will do His pooja regularly, if I recovered. She also made a vow that she would change my name from Jayamani to SaiMani in that eventuality. By Baba's grace, my condition became better before next day morning and there was no need for my hospitalization.

    After some time, we came to Madras from Cuddalore and we regularly visit the Sai Mandir at Mylapore from then onwards till date. I have the fortune of having ‘darshan’ of Sri Narasimha Swamiji only once in my life, a few months before his 'niryan'. I am also Fortunate to have received a copy of 'Kann Kanda Daivam1 {a book in Tamil by Sri S.Seshadri) from the holy hands of Sri Radhakrishna Swamiji in 1973.

    Sai Baba always fulfills the desire of His true and sincere devotees, if they really deserve what they wish. He has made me participate in several Sai Devotees conventions and taken me to Shirdi in His own inimitable manner. Let us earnestly follow Baba's teachings and become His true devotees.

    A rock is broken to pieces and turned to dust by the force of running river over thousands of years. Similarly, even the most evil person, can transform him and attain liberation by constantly remembering God.

    Gurudasa: Life and death are but different phases of being. You are a part of the Eternal Life.

    Sri Paramahansa Yogananda: Just as dried pith and cotton, when we put to fire, are instantaneously burnt into ashes, so the accumulated past work of the knower, is burnt up by the fire of true knowledge.


  6. Sai Ram to all of Sai devotees!!!
    I love this site because it gives me strength after reading many experiences, feel happy to know many are experiencing his blessings and miracles. I would like to thank Hetalji for creating wonderful platform to share and be a sai family.
    I am seeking an advice from you all devotees to one of my problem. I started praying Sai baba from 6-7 months back. I am married but not happily married. It was an arrange marriage but what ever my husband promised and showered love to me before marriage was all fake and due to this i was shattered because this is my second marriage and both were arranged only. but unfortunately its not written in my fate that i will be happy in my life with loving husband and family. He treated me like a slave and dont respect me and my feelings. Initially i tried hard to make him understand but his male ego is stronger then my love. i gave him lot of chances for him to change but he is still same. it hurts me a lot nd my parents. One of my cousin told me about Sai baba and i starting praying by reading sai baba chalisa but suddenly with in a week i got physically abused from my husband and even my in laws are not supportive. I came back to my parents house. I dont wanted to depend on my parents so i starting searching job and by baba"s grace i got job which i wanted. But he dont love me, for the sake of society he wants a wife , who should be like a slave to him. I cant bear that pain, i wanted loving and caring husband. I have thought to move on in life. I have asked Baba to send me back to him if he takes care of me but how much ever i pray, baba is not allowing me to go back or change him. So i hav asked baba show me a way to lead my life. Now i have decided to concentrate on my career. I also lived for my god, parents and well wishers but never for society. i feel i can live with on epain being without husband rather then having 100 pain being with him. Please help me out to take some decision. I will feel Sai baba is giving me advices through his devotees.

    • Don't give up your courage. Your husband needs some counseling and if he doesn't showup, you better concentrate on your career and improve your quality of life. Like you mentioned that you need a loving and caring husband, look for one around you or in matrimonials. All the best. May baba shower his loving blessings on you. Sairam!

    • Baba is with you. Live life for your self don't live for the sake of society. If you start living for society you will never be happy in life. Things start fall in line in some time by baba grace

    • Baba n hume ye life kisi k bhi julm sahne k liye nhi di h…baba n itne pyar se hume insaan banaya h aur dimaag aur dil bhi diya h…ik aise aadmi k peeche na bhage jo baba ki bakshi hui jindagi ki ijjat na kre..mwera matlab aapki respect na kare…aap uske torture ki complain kre aur us par case kre…vo apne aap seedha ho jayega….jab hamare pass baba h to hume kisi teesre aadmi ki jarurat hi nahi…jo itna ganda ho…love ur self as u r also a part of baba…baba hameasha sahi ka saath dete h…baba aapke saath h..vase bhi sab akele aate h aur akele hi vapas jana h…om sai ram dear sister…

    • Jai Sai Ram,

      To sister who is seeking advice for her problems with post marriage. Marriage is a bond between 2 persons (Man and Women) and the bond comes in form of respect, caring, patience, compromise, love..etc. When all these are only given by one person and not the other (either wife or Husband) then it will not be a healthy relationship and this will continue because people get used to it and take the other person for granted. However, some times people do realize and change. But it can happen only due to divine intervention. In your case, if your present Husband is abusing you physically and verbally that means he lacks basic respect for his wife, women and family. Then i see no point you staying around. Start your life and move on Sister… Baba will protect you and Baba will send you some one who really loves you and who can take care of you and respect you. now for what happened to your past and why it happened, I can only say it's the past karma's. Don't worry about it, let it go. Focus on your career and take care of your parents and soon you will get what you desire. Jai Sai Baba….

    • Hi sis i was also in same condtion. BABAJI hjelpes me in Many ways.
      Go to YouTube " Karma or destiny by Brahama kumaris " its help me a lot. Everyone can hear it for change our relationships with all.
      Om SAI ram ji !!!

  10. A Short Biography of Shree Swami Samarth
    *****Narasappa of Mysore*****
    Sixty-year-old Narasappa had come to Akkalkot from Mysore to seek the kind
    favour of Sri Swamiji. Except Kannada he did not know any other language and so he
    was not able to open up his mind in front of Sri Swamiji. Unable to explain himself he
    would stand silently in front of Sri Swamiji with folded hands. One day, recitation of
    Puran57 was in progress in the presence of Sri Swamiji. At that time Sri Swamiji hinted
    Narsappa to come near him. Nearby a person was writing an account. Sri Swamiji took
    the notebook from the person and wrote in Kannada in the notebook. “Read
    Bhagwadgita. Your work will get done”.
    Narasappa became very happy, so he started to learn how to recite the
    Bhagwadgita from a Shastri265. One night, Puranik and an ascetic were discussing about
    Vedanta. Narsappa slept at the place where this discussion was going on. At midnight
    he woke up. He was trembling. His eyes were shedding tears. He started saying “Sri
    Swami Maharaj is God Almighty”. When asked he started saying, “Sri Swamiji took me
    to Vaikunth266. There, in the golden temple on a throne decorated with gems and jewels
    Lord Rama was seated glaring with splendour along with Goddess Sita, Lakshman,
    Bharat, Shatrughna and also Hanumanji”. I prayed “Maharaj, today I am blessed by
    your kind grace. By your kind favour this humble man could get the blessings of Lord
    Rama”. Narasappa sat there for a long time, as a crazy person. He had sought the kind
    favour of Sri Swamiji.

  11. Dear Hetal ji, last time also the same thing happened and so as this time. I clicked on "PREVIEW" and it just got posted without giving me a chance to correct my mistakes like spelling mistake or grammatical , sentence error.

  13. Sai baba, I am sorry for what ever I have scolded, I became angry on you unecessarily. I searched for the post which I scolded you badly, I could not find out that please forgive me. I know you are my loving father and mother who takes good care of me and my family. Please bless me to get the problem resolved. Please look that no member of my family and my parents should get hurt by this incident. This should be solved and give us great strength to face and solve this accordingly. I really feel bad about what I did previously. I am paying for it now. But how can people be so relaxed and happy by deceiving our hard earned money. She also says she is your devotee. Does baba bless those kind of people who are enjoying others money by torchuring them though they have huge properties. Is this good on their part sai? Please show us a way to overcome this and get back our hard earned money. Baba I am completely surrendering to you and my family too. Please take care of us sai, love you baba.
