My Experiences With Sai Baba
Anonymous Devotee from India says: Sai Ram to all Sai family and my Namaste to Baba ji. It is for the first time I am writing my experience here. Right now, I am feeling totally disabled to write my experience as I have never done it before. I am numbly sitting in front of my laptop with folded hands with only single thought of Baba in my mind. I am also feeling a sense of energy & stability passing through me, from my head to toe, as I sit numb. All my bad & good thoughts seem to have gone somewhere. My pulse rate seems to be controlled by an external power as I have never felt so quite at heart. This feeling in itself is an experience, is it not dear devotees? I am typing and pausing because He is only making me write slowly & steadily.
Firstly, I would like to explain a bit about my nature because I am feeling the need. I am a student. I was not a quite, stable or patient person. I was always in a rush. Earlier, I also possessed an impure mind. I was always looking out to the outward world and never stopping to look within me. Though I have got every materialistic thing in life but I never took a second to thank God for them. I was never an atheist. But I never worshipped Bhagwan ji (God) since I have grown older. Only in my childhood, I used to worship Shiv ji. I can only brief up to say that things & I have changed (or are changing) now, for the better, and due to holy grace. The major incidents that led to a switch over in me are long and indescribable but the doer of all of it has been none other than Sai Baba. How else would I have known Him otherwise? Or how else would I have had the courage to approach Him with my problems, had it not been His Will? It is a fact that I am only His instrument. The sooner I realize this fact, the more sincerely I would be walking on His holy path. I came to know about Sai ji through my elder sister and began to develop my belief in Him as per His command.
Now I would speak about two of my experiences. I have been worried about certain things lately; I have been sad and depressed also. But I am content and I pray. First experience: One night when I was weeping in my bed I felt a soft hand over my shoulder. I did not turn back to look, but I knew it was Baba. I was crying calling out for Him, then how is it possible that He won’t come running? Though I did not turn back to look nor I said a word I just silently kept crying. This has happened many a times. One night, while I was crying in my bed again I prayed to Baba ji for help as I genuinely need Him and I prayed as follows – “Baba please hold our hands as there is nobody to help us and no power other than You to help us.” After wiping my tears I opened my Facebook account generally and saw this picture that I have posted with this experience. I smiled, thanked & went to bed.
Second experience: I am currently doing Sai Nav Guruvar Vrat. Many months ago I placed my wish to Baba that I wish to see Him as flute-player or just listen to Him playing flute. I love the sound of flute and hence I wished so. Last week when I was in my Pooja room, doing my fourth Vrat Pooja, I heard this flute being played right outside my house by a vendor. He played His flute for 2-3 minutes only. I was in the middle of the Pooja and I knew by the time I’ll finish He’ll go. He did leave the place, but Sai ji left an impact on me. I smiled and thanked Baba ji in my Pooja room itself. Deva, You have been the best and You are the best. Even when I didn’t know You, You were there creating wonders in peoples’ life. You were there helping each and every one at Your doorstep and putting us on the right path. Even when I was lost in my materialistic world You were keeping an eye on me and maybe saying: “hmm, you keep doing whatever you wish for outwardly, but inwardly only I am aware of your heart, and I will pull you towards me at the right time but be aware as my path is not easy and you will have to shed your ways to meet mine.” Baba, I promise I will serve You as my heart really wishes to serve You. Make me follow Your path, scold me when I am impatient, but please take care of my heart. Only You can do it. To all the devotees also I would like to say, that I love you all, I pray for everyone’s well-being, and one fine day when Sai Ji permits, I would also be a part of this beautiful Sai family. Thank you!! Thank you Hetal ji for posting my first experience.
Baba Helped Me In My Final Results
Anonymous Devotee from India says: Sai Baba is very kind and helps all His children. Hetal ji, thank you very much for maintaining this blog. This is a wonderful platform where all the devotees can share their experiences with Sai family. This is a small experience but very important for me. Recently I completed my Post Graduation. It was my last semester and the subjects of last semester are very tough, we also have project to be submitted. So, much of the time was spent in completing the project and because of this only one week was left for the preparation of the exam and there were six subjects to be studied, I felt it was quite impossible to study all the subjects properly but due to Baba’s grace I was able to somehow manage to study five subjects but did not have time to study the last subject which was very difficult, so I studied it when there was one day gap for each of the other subjects as this was on the last day, I was not sure what would be the results as the duration in which I prepared was not sufficient, I was just hoping that I should pass in all the subjects and did not expect any good marks. Whenever I would think about the results only bad thoughts would appear. I only prayed Baba that please help me to clear all my papers and did not expect anything else.
Last week my results were announced. One of my friend informed me that the results are out. I was fully scared to even check my results but later when checked out I not only had cleared all my papers but also got distinction. This was all Baba’s Kripa. I have no words to thank our beloved Baba for His mercy, He has given much more than what I had expected. Thank You Baba thank You so much. Baba please bless all Your devotees, fulfil all their wishes, keep them safe and happy. Shri Sachidanand Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai.
Baba Blessed My Daughter With A Job
Sai Sister Neeru from India says: Hetal ji you are indeed a blessed child of Baba. He has chosen you to guide His devotees. I am a very small devotee of Baba since 2000 and have witnessed His love and blessings many times. I was a regular reader of your blog but due to circumstances i am nowadays not able to read them. I again take it as His will. He has blessed me by calling me to Shirdi two times already in this year and my next visit is on 5 December 2014. Baba please bless my family, my sisters family who is in the US and is Your ardent devotee and everyone. Baba has His own ways to give us what He has planned for us. We were scheduled to go to Shirdi in the month of September 2013. We were all packed to leave on the due date when suddenly my daughter got intimation for interview for a job. All options were checked and it was finally decided to postpone the trip. My daughter sat for the interview but could not get through it. But we all had faith that Baba must be having better plans for her. After 10-15 days she got another call from a reputed company. She went for the interview. She did well but the results were declared after two weeks. She landed up with a job and joined the company on 21 October. We all thanked Baba for His blessings.
Second Experience: My husband suffered from chest pain on 17 August 2014. We took him to the hospital immediately. His ECG was not right and he was admitted. At night they performed ECHO test which also was not satisfactory. Next morning another ECG was done, which was the same as the previous one. My husband had a stent put in his artery in 2006. The doctors gave us an option to go in for Angiography but left the decision on us. I thank Baba and Guru ji that i was able to take the right decision of getting an Angiography. The results showed that his previous stent was all fine but another artery had 80% blockage. After telling us about the blockage the doctors put in another stent. If Baba and Guru ji had not been with us i do not know what would have happened. He saved us. He got timely help because of their blessings. Baba and Guru ji please bless us and all Your devotees always and keep them at Your Lotus Feet. Om Sai Nathaya Namah Om Namah Shiva Shiv ji Sada Sahay Om Namah Shiva Guru ji Sada Sahay.
Third Experience: We went to Shirdi in February 2014 to thank Baba. We had blissful Darshan for 3 days. For the Shej Aarti we would go to Dwarka Mai. After the Aarti i was talking to my daughter about the cat that happens to be there and sits in Dwarkamai. I had read about it in devotee’s experiences. I saw it and was telling her that she usually goes and sits on the laps of devotees and it is considered auspicious. Hardly did i realise that she came slowly and sat in my lap. We were totally dumbstruck. I was slightly scared but my daughter calmed me saying that Baba has chosen you so why are you scared. People around kept on saying you are lucky. The people on duty there said that something auspicious is going to happen. I thank Baba for His grace. After coming back from Shirdi exactly after one month my son got engaged. Thank You Baba. I love You a lot.
