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
