Sai Baba’s Life Changing Experience

Sai Brother Ankit from India says: Jai Sai Ram!! Baba- please give me strength to write & share my experience here. Dear Devotees- today I would like to share my life changing experiences with you all. Connecting with Sai means the true transformation to our lives. I am a small Sai devotee from Delhi NCR, just like most of us, I too worshiped Baba just like another Gods. But never tried to be close nor knew anything about Baba’s life. Though I did experience Baba’s blessings in my life before a few times but never awake that love in my heart before, the one I have today.

By Baba’s grace in the age of 28 only I have worked with top most telecom companies that too in big roles. Too would like to highlight that I also don’t have any strong educational background. I was doing really well on professional front until last 30th October I was informed that the management has found some discrepancy in my documents that I submitted at the time of joining almost a year ago. Around 3 weeks from then I was further asked to resign from my job. Post that every day I started visiting Sai temple near my place. Then someday I found this blog & instantly started reading it. I remember that most of the times I found my eyes in tears post reading Baba’s Leelas.

In a month from leaving job, I gave 3 interviews but didn’t receive any call. Despite every time, I was confident that the interview went well. In 2 of the interviews I even was asked to submit my previous company’s certificates that too was the positive sign but didn’t see any progress further. On asking on Baba’s question answer site I was advised to take care of my documents, which became reason for the loss of my previous job. I parallel started arranging the authenticated documents that became reason for leaving my previous job. At the time of giving those interviews I didn’t have those documents with me but these were applied. Now the situation was, the interviews went well, salary slips were asked but no progress beyond. Another 1.5 month spent in thinking & praying Baba to get good job! Somewhere I had the hope to receive the calls from the same companies, I gave the interviews in. Finally time arrived when at around 11 AM I receive a confirmation call from 1 of those companies where I was interviewed 2 months ago. Same day a few hours from then I got confirmation on my documents as well, which means, both happened same day. Friends- now imagine Baba knew this that without each of the document I would not be able to join any company. Every time when I was giving interview I was hoping to have that other document soon, but in actual Baba knew that the delay is with that document only & He never wanted me to face that situation again that I saw in past. From then since today my day starts with Baba & ends with Baba. Baba sorry for this delay. Just be with my family & me every time.

Kripa Of Sai Baba

Anonymous Devotee from India says: Om Sai Ram. I am living in Amritsar, Punjab. I was introduced to Baba four years back from a friend but few months back only, i started praying to Baba. I am a housewife married for around 4 years and have a daughter of 1 year. Few days back my little baby was not well. She started off with a minor fever but as the day proceeded she got diarrhoea also and the next day she started vomiting also as she is very small, she still cannot eat everything, so she became very weak and because of her sickness she stopped having milk also. I was very worried for her. I also could not eat anything, as my baby was hungry. Today i again went to the doctor, he said, if she will not be fine from now, then they had to take several blood tests of our baby. I was very worried because it would pain her a lot. Finally i prayed to Baba, my Lord, my Father with tears flowing from my eyes that please heal my baby Baba. She is my life, i can’t see her like this anymore and being a mother nobody can see her child like this in my mind. I put my head on Baba’s feet with tears flowing. It is said if you pray with true heart Baba always listens to you and miracle happened, my baby herself picked her bottle and had her milk. This was the first time she picked her feeder by herself. It brought tears in my eyes looking at my baby. Baba thank You a lot as i promised i will post my experience and will visit Sai Mandir on Thursday Baba. Baba blesses all. Bolo Sainath Ki Jai

Baba’s Leela

Anonymous Devotee from India says: I am a great devotee of Baba, aged 51 yrs living in Chennai. I am willing to do Seva in any Baba temple if i get an opportunity. I have two sons and mom who is aged about 65 yrs. I have my aunty (mom’s younger sister) who stays in Delhi. Her only son went to Malaysia 15 years ago and did not return to India. Whenever I visit her or we call her, she would cry about her son. I visit Shiridi every year once or twice and on return i visit her also. The previous year, I had bought for her Baba’s Satcharitra and asked her to read one page daily and from that day she is doing it regularly till today. Two weeks before around 9 pm, I received a call from Malaysia. It was my cousin brother (my aunt’s son) saying that he is returning to India and now he is with his parents. Everyone is really very happy, it is because of Baba’s blessings and Miracle and He proved that He is listening to our prayers, only thing we need is Shradda and Saburi. Om Sai Ram

  4. A Short Biography of Shree Swami Samarth

    After this, Sri Swami Samarth asked Ramanandji “What would you offer me as
    ‘Gurudakshina’? ”. Ramanandji said, “I shall obey your orders with great respect”. Then
    Sri Swami Samarth said, “You must immediately stop your business of perfumes and
    converting base metal into gold using the medicinal herbs. This will be your
    Gurudakshina293”. Ramanand agreed without hesitation.
    After returning to Pune, Ramanandji totally detached himself from worldly
    attachments. People started saying that Ramanandji had gone lost his mental balance.
    He did not pay any attention to their remarks. Next year, when he went to Akkalkot, Sri
    Swami Samarth ordered him to undertake Narmada77, an arduous circular pilgrimage
    of the entire route of the river Narmada. He started the Parikrama bare feet from
    Omkar Mandhata. He had vowed to himself, that he would not request anybody for food
    unless someone offers by free will; if required, he will only drink water for survival. This
    pilgrimage was a real test of his devotion towards his Guru and for his patience. He had
    various adventurous and dangerous experiences during this pilgrimage, He was
    harassed by the Gosavis / ascetics; had to jump into a river inhabited by crocodiles. He
    had to walk bare feet and had to complete his pilgrimage in burning hot sun. Once
    Mother Narmada appeared in person and offered him a pot of milk to drink. One great
    ascetic fed him a root to repress hunger. One beautiful lady put his honour to test, but
    by the kind grace of Sri Swami Samarth he remained calm without distraction and
    successfully stood the test. By this time Sri Swami Samarth had taken Mahasamadhi.
    Ramanandji returned to Pune after his Narmada parikrama. He had left
    everything at the will of God. To pay back his loans, he had to sell his house. His
    virtuous wife, Smt. Janakibai ‘Aaisaheb’ became restless on account of these
    circumstances, but Ramanandji remained indifferent. He set up a Temple-shrine at Pune
    and worked towards resolving the difficulties of the people. In addition, he also
    propagated spiritualism for the upliftment of his devotees to achieve life’s highest
    objective, the Divine Truth. Every year, seven to eight festivals and other religious
    practices as per the family tradition were being celebrated with great pomp and show.
    Shree Beedkar Maharaj was strongly rebuking his devotees for their mistakes.
    He said “You show carelessness in your worldly dealings. Hence you are not able to
    make any progress in spiritualism either. Because you are under my shelter, I am
    rebuking you. It is my earnest attempt that you become skilful in every matter and also
    sharpen your intelligence. Those who do not come under my shelter will not get a single
    word regarding them”.
    Shree Beedkar Maharaj had a mother’s affection towards his devotees but was
    equally tough at the same time. Very often he said, “I tell you to go insane. But nobody
    is ready to become insane”.
    It was only Shree Baba Maharaj Sahasrabuddhe, who always acted as per the
    advice of Shree Beedkar Maharaj. Hence Shree Beedkar Maharaj exclusively blessed

  5. Shree Sadguru Baba Maharaj alias Raosaheb Sahasrabuddhe by placing his hand on the
    latter’s head and entrusted to him the task of continuing the tradition of Swaroop
    Sampradaya. Of the many other disciples of Shree Beedkar Maharaj, Anna Maharaj
    Bahutule took over the responsibility of Shree Beedkar Maharaj Muth.
    As per Shree Beedkar Maharaj, once a person comes in contact of devotion, he
    cannot leave that impression of devotional rite. He used to say “Just like cowdung fallen
    on the ground is bound to lift some earth with it, a person who takes the refuge of a
    Guru, shall definitely achieve some spiritual development”. Sri Swami Samarth Maharaj
    had once told him “Ramya, serving food to somebody unless he is hungry, will fail to
    serve any purpose. The food will be wasted”. But Shree Beedkar Maharaj replied,
    “Anybody can feed the hungry. I shall feed a person who is satisfied to one’s fullest
    capacity. I shall certainly impart spiritual advice to those who have the desire for
    knowledge; likewise for those, who have no desire for knowledge too. I shall also feed
    spiritual advices and lead them towards God”.
    Shree Beedkar Maharaj had enjoyed all the worldly pleasures of this life to the
    utmost degree. Likewise, he also achieved life’s highest truth that is the Divine Truth.
    The case of Shree Beedkar Maharaj was a burning example of what a man can achieve
    with firm belief and devotion. He took Mahasamadhi on Tuesday, 1st April 1913.

  11. A Short Biography of Shree Swami Samarth

    *****Shree Vasudevanant Saraswati Maharaj*****
    Shree Baba Maharaj Sahasrabuddhe alias Shree Raosaheb Sahasrabuddhe The one who carried forward the tradition of
    Swaroop Sampradaya from Shree Beedkar
    Maharaj was Shree Vasudevanant Saraswati.
    He was also known as Shree Baba Maharaj alias
    Shree Raosaheb Sahasrabuddhe. He had gained
    a spiritual height that led Shree Beedkar
    Maharaj to say,
    “Raosaheb is my Gem”.
    In the tradition of Swaroop Sampradaya he is
    acknowledged as the incarnation of Sri Swami
    Samarth. He was born on the noon of 14th
    November 1883 as per English Calendar and
    Kartik-Poornima-Shake 1805 as per Hindu
    Calendar in Hubli, Karnatak State. He was
    named as ‘Ramachandra’. His family name was
    When Shree Baba Maharaj went to Pune to pursue his studies in Engineering, he
    came under the kind blessings of Shree Beedkar Maharaj. Since then his life was
    entirely transformed. From then onwards, he remained absorbed in meditation. During
    his final examination for L. C. E. (Engg), he did not distance with his practice of
    meditation. His mother, Smt. Laxmibai Sahasrabuddhe worried about his future and
    prayed to Shree Beedkar Maharaj. Shree Beedkar Maharaj consoled her and said, “He is
    completely under my care and attention”. Accordingly, Shree Baba Maharaj passed his
    Engineering Examination with good marks due to the blessings of Shree Beedkar
    Maharaj and eventually, he took employment in the Public Works Department (P.W.D).
    In the year 1906, Shree Beedkar Maharaj was greatly pleased to bless Shree
    Baba Maharaj; he blessed him by placing his hand on the forehead of Shree Baba
    Maharaj and said “Raosaheb, I have now made you permanent”. With these words,
    Shree Beedkar Maharaj bestowed upon him the ultimate self-realization with the help of
    Shaktipath294. Since then, Shree Baba Maharaj always remained in ‘Videhi state’
    (Disembodied state). Later in the year 1910, Shree Baba Maharaj got married according
    to the wishes of his Sadguru Shree Beedkar Maharaj.
    He worked in the Public Works Department (Govt. of India) as Assistant
    Engineer and was posted to different places like Ratnagiri, Pen, Mahad, Panvel and
    Nagothane, all in Maharashtra State. Because of strong devotion towards his Guru
    (Preceptor), Shree Baba Maharaj visited Pune every Saturday however far his employment may be just to seek the blessings from Shree Beedkar Maharaj. When he

  12. was at Pen, he would travel to the nearest Palasdari station 36 miles away by riding a
    bicycle and then catch a train to go to Pune station. After some days he was posted as
    P. A. in the office of Assistant Architect, Mumbai. Since he always remained absorbed in
    transcendence, his subordinate staff thought that he is not working; so they made a
    complaint to their officer. The Supervisor then came for investigation based on this
    complaint. He asked for the measurements of the buildings in construction as part of
    inspection. Without seeing the records, Shree Baba Maharaj wrote all the
    measurements of the building just from his memory on a piece of paper and gave it to
    the Supervisor. When the supervisor inspected that building and took all the detailed
    measurements, he was simply astonished to find these actual measurements matching
    precisely with the measurements written on the paper, by Shree Baba Maharaj. The
    Supervisor was just marvelled at this incredible memory power and the mysterious
    working system of Shree Baba Maharaj.
    Shree Baba Maharaj had sentiments of oneness. He had a tendency of seeing
    God in every living being. Hence he would bow his head and salute the peons to
    everybody else in his office. Since he was always absorbed in meditation, some people
    considered him crazy. Once when he was taking a stroll he went up to the church at
    Bandra, Mumbai. He sat down near the church and lighted the chiroot295. After taking
    the first puff he got himself absorbed into such a state of meditation that he regained
    consciousness only when the cheroot was completely burnt along with his fingers
    holding it.
    Once on his payday, he saw a beggar standing in front of him. Being so
    absorbed in meditation, he put his hands in his pocket and gave away the entire pay to
    that beggar. Since Shree Baba Maharaj was always absorbed in state of Divine
    contemplation, people thought he had lost his mental balance. His relatives admitted
    him in a Mental Hospital at Yerawada, Pune. The doctors in the hospital thoroughly
    examined him and concluded that he had no psychological issues and instead they
    thought he had extraordinary wisdom. Hence the doctors arranged for a separate bed
    away from all other mental patients and provided all good facilities to him. He remained
    there for about one year.
    At last when Dr. Nirokhekar, another disciple of Shree Beedkar Maharaj came to
    know about Shree Baba Maharaj being admitted to a Mental Hospital, he took help of
    some close associates and fellow students to get Shree Baba Maharaj discharged from
    the Hospital. After this, Shree Baba Maharaj presented himself in the office and got
    reinstated. But because of his condition of being absorbed in the state of Divine
    contemplation, he regularly missed office. Therefore, ultimately he opted for Voluntary
    retirement and got it sanctioned. After retirement he started staying in Dhumal
    Building, Narayan Peth, Pune, for the rest of his life.
    The temple-shrine of Sadguru Shree Beedkar Maharaj was very near to this
    place. Shree Baba Maharaj visited the temple three times in a day, sang devotional
    songs with Ektari, a single string musical instrument, and simultaneously got himself
    absorbed in Divine contemplation. Even if he were sick with temperature up to 105
    degrees, he would stay absorbed in the Divine contemplation. Once vowed and stared

  13. at the sun from sunrise to sunset with naked eyes continuously for 21 days.
    His wife Smt. Durgatai Maa saheb took good care of him as long as she lived.
    But after her death in 1945, there was nobody to look after him. His devotees brought
    him food and he would keep a little from it for himself before distributing the rest to his
    devotees. Very often, Shree Baba Maharaj would distribute stale food that was
    sometimes even four days old, like tea and khichdi 296to his devotees. It was a common
    experience that the stale food he gave always tasted like fresh food. Shree Baba
    Maharaj cured a number of sick people, saved them from the jaws of death, and took
    them beyond their calamities. He directed many people desirous of knowledge towards
    the spiritual path.
    Shree Baba Maharaj accompanied some of his devotees & travelled to various
    holy places such as Rameshwer in Tamilnadu, Jagannathpuri in Orissa, Varanasi in Uttar
    Pradesh, Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh. Once he visited the holy place of Tryambakeshwar
    in Maharashtra State, Western India. The devotees that accompanied him learned about
    a great saint residing on a nearby mountain. When the devotees went to take the
    blessings of that saint, the saint proclaimed, “When a great saint is already with you,
    why are you searching for him somewhere else?”. Shree Keshavdutt Maharaj of
    Sonageer would come every year to worship Shree Baba Maharaj in a ‘Shodshopchar
    way’. He always said, “If you want to see a fully accomplished Divine saint, you have go
    to Shree Baba Maharaj”. Shree Lele Maharaj, the Guru of Yogi Aurobindo said, “Shree
    Baba Maharaj has attained the stage of Ultimate self-realization. It is impossible for a
    worldly person to perceive that stage of Shree Baba Maharaj”. The great Parsi saint
    MeherBaba had come to pay homage to Shree Baba Maharaj. Anandmai Maa and Shree
    Shankar Maharaj also maintained great respect and love towards Shree Baba Maharaj.
    Shree Baba Maharaj preached his devotees and disciples “Meditate for half an
    hour before having your meals”.
    In the year 1953, Shree Baba Maharaj blessed and initiated Shree Vitthalrao
    Joshi (Shree Digambardas Maharaj) and passed on the responsibility of propagating the
    Swaroop Sampradaya. Shree Baba Maharaj had mentally decided of departing from this
    world, so he decided to free himself from this mundane existence by taking ‘jalsamadhi’
    (ending bodily existence by drowning in water) in the Sharayu River, at the holy place
    Ayodhya in U. P. State, North India. So he took the permission to depart from all and
    went on pilgrimage to Ayodhya along with some devotees. At Ayodhya he got down in
    the Sharayu River for the abandonment of his body, but it so happened that he could
    not find any place in the Sharayu River with water level above the anklebone. Then
    Shree Baba Maharaj remarked, “This shows that the Sharayu River refuses to give me
    any place for taking Jalsamadhi. This may be the wish of God Almighty”. So he returned
    to Pune.
    After returning from Ayodhya, his health was fast deteriorating. He had
    continuous temperature as well as the trouble with piles. Over time, he reduced the
    intake of food. He wanted to stay near Shree Digambardas Maharaj, but he had ordered
    Shree Digambardas Maharaj to stay in Ratnagiri. His health started deteriorating
    further. He had such a burning sensation in his body that even by placing ice cubes
    nearby or by dressing him with wet coat the burning sensation would not calm down.Ultimately on Tuesday, 18th August 1954(Shravan Vadya Chaturthi 1876,
    Manmath Samvatsar Mangalwar Angarki Chaturthi as per Hindu Calendar,
    Shree Baba Maharaj left his mortal body and merged with, the Nirguna
    Parabrahma, the infinite formless Supreme Lord. His last rite was performed
    on the plot owned by him at Chatushringi road in Pune.
    Shree Baba Maharaj had promised his devotees and disciples “I
    would stay here for 1000 years for the well being of my devotees and

  14. disciples”. After some days, his disciple and apostle of Swaroop Sampradaya,
    Shree Digambardas Maharaj built the “Shree Sadguru Baba Maharaj
    Sahasrabuddhe Samadhi Mandir297” on that plot. In that Samadhi Mandir, Shree
    Digambardas Maharaj started rendering service to Shree Sadguru Baba Maharaj by
    celebrating many festivals. As per his Sadguru’s wishes, Shree Digambardas Maharaj
    took responsibility of the social service offered by Shree Sant Seetarambua Walavalkar,
    at Dervan and simultaneously also handled the Samadhi Mandir work of his Sadguru
    Shree Baba Maharaj at Pune. The devotional awareness has risen to its topmost level
    and taken practical form due to the wisdom, hard work, and resourcefulness of Shree
    Digambardas Maharaj in both places, Dervan and Pune.

  15. great experiences!! if any devotee wish to discuss their problems you can mail me at or add on gtalk blessallsai. We wish to help people in need without any return to live happy lives. please note the identity will not be disclosed and this is not a spam

    SAI Bless All

  16. I am far from perfect, but I am still human and my heart bleeds. I am in pain, and it won't stop. I don't even want to be happy. Just make the pain stop and help me stop feeling. Please. It hurts too much. And I have no hope. Please help. I know I get angry and stay away from you, but please don't torture me like this. I accepted that my life is like this, but deep in my heart I know what I want. I dreamt of my dreams coming true, you could have kept status quo where I was dreaming of the impossible and living in my bubble, if not happy, at least not sad and depressed. But you keep bursting my bubble. I can't sleep, I can't eat, and I can't even talk to my parents about it, because they start crying or getting angry. I can't talk to anyone. Everyone just expects me to smile and say, I'm fine, I can handle it. But I can't handle it. I have asked you for a lot of things in the past, and I didn't get anything, and I kept thinking faith and patience. I have been patient for so long and things only got worse, and so bad that I no longer even have faith. I realized that you won't help me and my life is destined to be miserable, and I tried my best to accept that focus on working hard. But I still keep getting punched. No mortal can help me. I tried doctors, I tried parents, I tried friends, and the one person who can help me, I can't go to, because it's a trap you designed for us. I am coming to you because I have no one else to go to. I have no peace in my life. So much so that I think that maybe if I jump off a building it will stop. But I can't do that because my mom and dad will be devastated. I don't know if you are kind enough to grant me happiness, but please I am begging you, make me stop feeling. Make me stop hurting, and make my emotions vanish. People think I feel nothing and I am strong, they don't realize that under my blanket I cry and weep and wish I never wake up because this life is too cruel to me right now, and it hasn't gotten better in 3 years.

    • Dear Sai devotee… Try to come out of the situation , give a daring blow to your problems… Baba will be with you all the time….Baba always helps you in solving your problems but the only thing is that put your strength also in hunting your problems… Take care
