Baba Ate From My Hand: I frequent visit a Baba temple near my house. One evening, I was sitting in the temple and staring at Baba while listening to a temple volunteer reading the Satcharitra. Chapter 40 was being read about how Baba visited Mrs Dev’s Udyapan ceremony along with two men, as He promised and Hemadpant’s house for meals in the form of His Picture. Upon hearing this story, a thought struck to me as to how happy I would be if Sai visits my house too for dinner. Immediately, I remembered that we were invited for my neighbour’s wedding reception that evening. So I smiled dispensing that thought. The evening passed and we returned from the reception around 10:00 P.M. I was in my terrace when my neighbour’s dog started barking. The neighbour’s family was not going to return home from the wedding hall that night and so the continuous barking got me and my dad worried. We took some biscuits to the neighbour’s house and fed the dog. It gulped the biscuits and looked longingly for more food. I felt sorry for it and rushed home to get more bread. This happened thrice and the dog literally ate the bread directly from my hand. Finally, the dog looked satisfied after it ate almost 5-6 bread slices, 4 biscuits and drank a bottle of water. It slept immediately. We returned home and sent a text message to my neighbour that we had fed their dog and they need not to worry about it. But the neighbour replied that they had already fed the dog through somebody else that night. It was only then that the thought struck to me! That it was my Sai in the dog’s form that ate dinner from my hand. I truly believe that Sai does anything to fulfill even our smallest desires.
Baba Helped My Father: My Father is a businessman. One day while dropping me off at work, I noted that he looked unusually tensed. He kept making calls and enquiring about something continuously. I asked him for the reason and learnt that a package that he had sent to Malaysia worth a few Lakhs had gone missing and he regretted that he did not take an insurance cover on the same before sending. It seems that he had called the Indian and Malaysian Customs Authorities continuously for over a week, but both had confirmed that the package was not in their custody. I silently made a statement to Sai “Please find the package Sai because it is my dad’s hard earned savings that he will lose”. I did not think about it anymore after that. I reached office and had hardly reached my desk when my dad called me and excited informed that the Malaysian Customs Official had himself called my dad just then to apologize for their oversight and informed that the package was safe with them. See how Sai helps within minutes when we pray selflessly!
Baba Drew Me To Shirdi And Fulfilled My Wishes: I wanted to go to Shirdi even since I became Baba’s devotee. I had read that we cannot go to Shirdi unless Baba calls us to Him. I was insisting my family to make a trip in May 2014, but somehow, my dad did not seem to be interested because of the long distance. Hence, we decided to go to Coimbatore to visit family friends. I was little upset inside, but I did not want to go against my family and so I thought to myself that I would visit Sai no matter what happens, but it will be possible only when Sai Himself calls me. We reached Coimbatore and the first thing we saw right at the Coimbatore railway station was a cart that had Sai’s photos in it. It was as if Sai had a plan of His own and welcomed us in Coimbatore and made me very happy. On our first evening in Coimbatore, we were having dinner with our friend’s family when out of the blue, we were discussing about temples and suddenly, one uncle remarked that he could get us VIP Darshan passes in Shirdi. I felt Sai’s call and informed him that we would like to visit Shirdi at the earliest. One month from then, in June 2014, I visited Shirdi with my family (as I wanted).
The miracle doesn’t end there. I had learnt the Dhoop Aarti song by heart as I wanted to sing for Sai in Shirdi. However, we had not booked our Aarti tickets and so, my family told me not to expect to attend the Aarti. I was disappointed, but convinced myself that Sai’s Darshan itself is a blessing. We reached Shirdi at 4:30 P.M. and would you believe that our guide got us tickets, both for the Dhoop Aarti (which is at 5:30 P.M.) on the same day and the Kakad Aarti on the next day (Thursday). I sang the Dhoop Aarti loudly to my Sai on the same evening that I reached. After the Aarti, I went close to Baba’s Samadhi before I could leave the hall (the crowd was heavy with tight security), then the priest let me touch the Samadhi and also dropped a bunch of red roses in my hands. I am sure my Sai blessed me through Him that day. We almost missed our flight when we started back, but by Sai’s grace, we made it just in time. There have been many instances when I felt Sai’s presence in my family.
My sister did not get any job in the campus placements after she completed her BE. I prayed to Sai to bless her and now, she is doing her ME in Sai Ram college of Engineering. Sai surely had a plan for her and that’s why did not plan for a job at that moment. Every day, I feel Sai, I talk to Him. I feel He is holding my hand when I need Him to hold me. When I am tired or upset, I ask Him to keep me on His lap and when I imagine that I am lying on His lap, I sleep without any problem. I love my Sai. Sai knows what is in my heart even though I don’t openly tell anybody about what I feel. I trust Him completely and pray that whatever is His will, alone, happens in my life. He is my everything. I love You Sai.
