Shraddha And Saburi
Anonymous Devotee from UK says: I am 30 years old married husband and father living in London for the past 9 years. I have been a Sai devotee since I was 12 yrs old. One of our neighbours’s introduced us to this Saint/God. So I have been a devotee for almost 19 years. But when I was young I was not very devoted. I was only praying to Sai Baba before exams. Some months during college days, I completely forgot about Sai Baba. But Sai Baba always created some problem or the other and pulled me closer to Him. Since the last 6 years, I have been very devoted and been doing Pooja daily and I pray to Him to give me the strength to continue. After I finished my Master’s course in 2006, I had a lot of trouble getting a job and visa. Although I was at top of my class because I had no visa, no company was interested in hiring me. Finally as a last resort I emailed a contact I had made through my lecturer and was pleasantly surprised when he invited me for interview. The interview went very bad as I was very nervous and kept stammering. I had no hope of getting the job and decided to book my flight tickets to go back home. However after 2 days, the interviewer gave me the job to my shock. I came to know later on that the interviewer spoke to my professor who told him that I’m a very good student but get nervous once in a while. Based on my professor’s kind words I got the job, but I know it was Baba who did the whole thing. Although I was happy to get a job, the company had only 4 people and was very small. All my friends were working for large MNCs with great salaries.
After a few years, I was tired of the job as there was no growth opportunity for me and I was doing the same thing every day. I was praying to Baba to give me a way out. In 2010 I got another interview call from a big company. After 6 rounds of interview I was very excited in the last round. But I failed in the last round and was depressed for a few days. Then I resigned to my fate and continued my job. Meanwhile I got married and stopped searching for jobs. In Dec 2013, I was extremely bored of my job and had no motivation to work. I was still doing the same job after 8 years with no growth. I was praying to Baba every day to give me some job in a large company. I also started applying for jobs and started working on my CV. I put my CV on a job board, but all I got was rejections for the jobs I applied. I was getting quite angry and frustrated.
Finally Baba heard my prayers and all of a sudden a recruitment agent called me and told that he saw my profile on a job board and he has an opening at a large bank. I quickly agreed for the interview process. I had 5 interviews spread over 1 month and was competing with another person who had more experience and was from a bigger company. Because of my past failures, I was not very hopeful but I knew that whatever Baba decided for me is good and I should accept it. Some days I was thinking that the company will choose the other candidate as he has more experience and is from a larger organisation. Why would anyone choose me with lower experience and from a small company with 4 employees? However, miracles do happen and I was selected probably because I was younger and more energetic. Anyway, I know all this is Baba’s Leelas. Anyway now I’m happy thanks to Baba. He also blessed us with a cute daughter but that is another story! Baba is always with us, He is only testing our faith but we should never lose faith. Even if we are in trouble it is because of our past karma and we should not blame Baba. He is our only savoir and whatever He has chosen for us, is good for us. Om Sai Ram
Baba’s Blissful Experience
Anonymous Devotee from India says: I come from Southern part of India & work for an export firm. I am a graduate. I happened to go to Sai temple along with my friend, when i was in a career drown period and within a day Sai has done me a miracle by sending me an offer from my old company & i also got my expected salary. From that day onwards He has done so many miracles for me & i have promised Sai Maharaj that i will share my experience when one of my most wanted prayers is fulfilled and He has done that miracle to me in July 2014. Myself & my wife were married in 2008 & we have a beautiful, lovable girl child. She is 5 yrs now. The second one we expected a boy. But most of the Kundali/tarot readers & elders predicted we have very less chance for having a boy baby. We are very fond of boy baby & prayed to Baba that only if it is going to be a boy baby my wife shall get conceived.
In Oct 2013, my wife missed her date & as usual she tried so many country methods & Medicines to get her dates to regular, because we planned for next baby in 2014. Against all her medicines she conceived a baby in Oct 2013 and it was an unexpected one for us, since we did not plan. Anyhow we prayed to Baba & started doing check up & other activities. Midst of this so many elders & people predicted it is going to be a girl baby. Since in India it is an offence to disclose sex before birth we did not had any chance to know what child during scan. I went to Shirdi & requested Baba that we wish for a boy child & Baba has to bless me. I came back home & did 9 weeks Thursday fasting. What a miracle. My Wife gave birth to a Boy baby, when i was completing my 9th week fasting. Actually it was 2 weeks earlier than doctor’s schedule for her delivery date. Our entire family is happy & i thank Baba for my life time for this blessing. It is Baba’s bliss which is showered on us & His unconditional love for which we are thankful for our life time. Om Sai Ram
My Delivery By Baba’s Grace
Anonymous Devotee from India says: I am a devotee of Baba, but was not very much attached to Him. My delivery phase made me more attached with Baba. I lost my mom in a young age so there was no one to take care of me during my pregnancy till my 9th month. I used to do all the work in my house and I felt so lonely and started missing my mother a lot at these times. I used to pray Baba only to give me strength. During my 9th month I started reading Sai Satcharitra. My due date was given by June 28, but I never got any pain or cramp. Doctor told me to wait for another 2 days. Then we again went on 30th June since there was no labour pain. Doctor advised me to get admitted so that we can induce injection to get pain. To my surprise my doctor was a Muslim but only that day morning she has returned after visiting Shirdi. I was feeling so happy that Baba is along for delivery. They induced 3 injections but still i didn’t get pain. Doctor suggested for caesarean and the reason for not getting pain is because my baby had umbilical cord wound around his neck. While operating doctor was telling me it’s the right time we operated or both lives will be in trouble. It’s all because of our Baba that critical delivery has been made at ease. Also Baba was sitting as an idol in Operation Theatre blessing me. I love Baba so much. Baba forgive me for my mistakes. Always be along with us.
