My Experience With Sai Baba
Anonymous Devotee from US says: I have been very attached with Sai Baba throughout my life. I have decided to write this Sai Leela as a gratitude for Baba helping me many times. Sri Sachidanand Sadguru Sai Nath Maharaj Ki Jai! Om Sai Ram. Today I feel very blessed and lucky to write this experience of mine in being associated with Sai Baba so far. Before I begin writing I would like to apologise to Sai Baba from the bottom of my heart for writing this Sai Leela experience of mine very late than my initially expected time. Baba please forgive me of my ignorance and please bless me.
I am a very ardent devotee of Sai from my childhood. I was encouraged to go to Baba temple next to my home every Thursday by my grandmother and by my mother. Me and my younger brother always had this habit of visiting Baba’s Temple on every Thursday. All-throughout my life till now I could feel the presence and blessings of Baba in many ways. I would like to mention few of such experiences. I have completed my masters in US. In my journey of being as a student, I was able to get good jobs and was able to stay financially independent without many hurdles. Thanks to Baba I have also passed out with good GPA. After completion of degree it was initially difficult to get a job in IT industry in US. I believed in Baba and did Sai-Nav Vrat to get a good job. Even before i completed 9 weeks of doing Sai Vrat I got placed into an IT company. I was very happy but very tensed as the generally followed practise in US is to attend to interviews and to go to client location as a highly experienced professional instead of being a fresher. I was under heavy stress as I was just a beginner into corporate world and I had to showcase myself as being an experienced person in jobs. It was very difficult as I didn’t have the technical knowledge nor the skills that could match the experience shown in my resume. With Baba’s grace I managed to survive for 3 months in my first project, and later I was found out to be a fake profile and I was fired from my job.
I was very disappointed because it was my first rejection in life and I felt very humiliated. I was very upset as I didn’t know how to face my family and my parents. But even in this lean period I kept faith in Sai. Although I was very down morally I took it as an opportunity to introspect and learn my abilities. That’s when I realised probably that the stream I was working in probably wasn’t a best fit for me. I have soon changed it and decided to go into a different stream. It took me close to 2 months to get a new job. But I had the same dilemma as the first job. Will I survive at-least in this job? Will I be caught with my fake profile? This time armed with little corporate experience I have decided not to worry at all and instead have put my entire burden and thoughts on Sai. Although I was little tensed, I had complete faith in Baba. Slowly I started to learn and establish myself in the company. With the grace of Baba I got a very good chance to learn and grow in the project. I got a chance to work with some of the most brilliant people. This time I have quit this job on my own terms to move to a better job. This period of my first successful job was a most memorable one’s. Please remember God Only Helps Those Who Helps Themselves. This is a very correct adage. I was always working very hard to learn and earn a name for myself. Baba’s blessing in addition to my hard work gave me good fruits.
Soon after I had decided to apply for my H1B visa. As most of us are aware of the fact that H1 is very difficult to get picked and approved due to large volume of applicant. I was almost in India when my H1 application process was being prepared by my employer. I have prayed to Baba to please help me in this process. I was little nervous and my current visa was already expiring and If my H1 doesn’t get approved and If I had to visit India then it would be difficult to come back. I was again putting my complete hope on Sai and have prayed to Him before applying that everything good happens. Later I came back to US and was anxiously waiting for the decision on my application. With Baba’s grace I came to know on one fine day that my H1 got picked. I was happy but there was other half of the work still pending. I didn’t know if my application would be approved in-spite of getting picked, also if approved how long will it approved for. I have applied it under normal processing and was waiting to hear the decision. Sooner I got a call from my employer saying that my application got approved for full 3 years. This news of my decision came much faster than candidates who have applied in premium processing. I was very happy and the first person whom I thanked immediately was Sai Baba. Later I called my parents and grandparents and told them the same. It was only due to Sai Baba’s grace that I got my application approved without any hiccups. I am extremely thankful and indebted to Baba for His blessings. I am similarly confident that Baba would take care of my H1 stamping as well.
In the meanwhile I have got another nice opportunity in work and have moved to that company. Like always I had Baba’s blessings here also and in addition to my hard-work I have got a good reputation in my company. This was all possible only due to Baba’s grace. There were couple of times when I used to really feel low and I used to lose interest in devotion. But Baba used to quickly pull me back to His path by teaching me lessons in His own way. I really feel blessed and very much thankful to my grandmother who is a staunch devotee of Baba for encouraging me also to be the same. The greatness about Sai is that He points out the negativities of His devotees directly. I am very fortunate to learn my weakness directly from Baba, as He always points me my flaws directly to me. I am working on several personal things such as character building and being a better responsible and dignified person. I have started to try to stop being controlled by my weakness. People who believe in Sai Baba are never left behind. Please always do keep faith in Baba. Baba please take care of my grandfather and grandmother, they need your help in staying healthier, happy and stronger. Please take care of my grandmother and make her strong. Baba please take good care of my family and all the devotees and family who keep faith in You. Please help me in posting this experience of mine, as last time it was not posted. Baba I am once again apologizing for writing this experience very late. Please forgive my ignorance. Ananta Koti Raja Di Raja Yogi Raja Parabrahma Sri Sachidanand Samartha Sadguru Sai Nath Maharaj Ki Jai.
Baba Gave Me Job
Anonymous Devotee from Australia says: Dear Team, Thanks for maintaining such a wonderful blog about our real time experiences with Sai Baba. I had couple of experiences with Baba, but I am going to write 2 experiences I had recently. First time I got close to Baba in 2013 when we visited to Shirdi. We were planning to go to Shirdi since 2005, but finally we went in 2013. As everyone says, we cannot go to Shirdi until Baba calls us. That is true. My first experience, we applied for Australian Permanent Resident Visa and everyone have to wait for months to receive the grant, but by Baba’s grace we got it within 20 days. That day our happiness was endless.
My Second Experience – Within few months we moved to Australia after getting Permanent Resident Visa, but i could not find job for couple of months due to my past karma. I cried a lot day and nights for not getting job, i was having no money in my hand. Whenever I asked Baba in Question and Answers page, He says all this is happening due to your past karma. After 2 months Baba came into my dream and I was asking for Job, then He said, I will give you. That day I was so happy. Finally I got one job Interview, but they rejected me due to lack of local experience and then within 3 days I went back to India. Before going to India, many times I asked Baba about my job and other problems in Question and Answers, I got the answer saying, your bad days are gone, you will receive what you are expecting. After going to India within 4 days I got call from that company saying that they wanted to take one more round of interview in some other project. Within 3 days, I was back to Australia and on the same day I cleared that Interview and got the offer letter for 6 months contract. I am waiting for Permanent job. By Baba’s grace, I had given Interview and waiting for the feedback, By the time my experience will be posted, I am sure, i will get offer letter by Baba grace. As Baba says trust in Me and your prayers shall be answered. That is true. See how Baba will show His love on me.
