Sai Brother Surendar from Dubai says: I am P. Surendar working in Dubai. I am a small devotee of Sai Baba. Here i would like to share my experience, how i got job by Baba’s Grace. I joined as an electrical engineer in January 2013 in Dubai, through an agent from India. I gave one Lakh rupees for visa & air ticket to the agent. Basically, i am from poor family. My father borrowed money from finance to give money to that agent. After joining in that job, within few days, i came to know that company is not properly issuing salary to the workers. We were getting salary after 45 days. Some times for two months once, also my co workers were from different country. They were not friendly with me. Even they were not talking to me. I was helpless. I felt alone in that company. Every day i pray to Sai to help me to get another job.
At last, i quit the job in January 2014 and i came back to India. I started searching for job in Chennai. Every two days, i visit to Mylapore Sai Baba Temple and pray Him to help me for job. Meanwhile every day, i used to study Sai Satcharitra book. My family depends on my income. Without my income, they were facing lot of financial problems. I got warning notice from bank also to pay interest for my educational loan. On March 2014, i got a job offer in Chennai as a sales engineer. Salary was around 8000 rupees. But as an engineer, i was not happy to work as sales person, so i decided to ask Sai’s decision. I wrote on one paper, “Accept this offer” and in another paper “Don’t accept”. I kept it on Sai Picture. I took one paper. It was “don’t accept this offer”. Then i rejected this offer. On one side, my family was facing lot of financial problems. My parents were borrowing money from my relatives for hospital fees.
One day on April 2014, while i was traveling in the bus, i saw one Sai Photo in the bus. I prayed Him, Oh Deva! When i will get job, please show mercy on my Family. Suddenly i heard “May”. When i turned back, i was not able to find whose voice was that, bus was heavily crowded. After two days, one of my friend from Dubai suggested me that job market is good in Dubai. He asked me to search job in Dubai. But i don’t have enough money to take tourist visa. My father encouraged me. He sold out his bike for 50,000 rupees for my visa. I took one month tourist visa from May 23 to June 23. Within this period, i have to find job. For first seven days, i distributed my resume to almost 50 companies, but i didn’t get any response from them. I was left with less money and it was only sufficient for next five days. I don’t know what to do. On May 30, i went to Sai temple located in Bur Dubai area and i participated in Madhayana Aarti. During Aarti, i got a phone call from one Indian company and they asked me to come and meet project manager for interview (May 31).
Next day i went for that interview. When i entered in the Project manager room, he was an Indian guy. I saw big Sai Baba photo above his table, i was overwhelmed. Then i remembered my Sai words “Wherever you go, I will follow you, i don’t need doors”. Even, i haven’t answered correctly to his questions, he appointed me. It was “May 31” and he offered me (5000 Dhs) according to Indian currency Eighty thousand rupees. Now i realized, it was Sai voice “May” in the bus, also i realized Why He asked me to reject that 8000 Rupees offer. He gave me ten times more than that salary. While i was getting appointment letter here, same time my mom in India was reading Sai Satcharitra in front of Sai Baba. A flower fell down from the Sai photo. Dear Sai Devotees, keep faith & Patience on Sai. I promise you, your prayers shall be answered. Sai bless you all.
Anonymous Devotee from USA says: I am living in US now and belong to south India. I am working in IT field and a Sai devotee for past 10 years. I am really happy to be a Sai Baba devotee. Sai Baba is a true God. I realized the meaning for God from Sai Baba. I started to know Sai Baba from my brother during my college time. Till that time onwards i feel i am really blessed. Many good changes happened in my life and all because of Sai Baba. Many times Sai Baba responded my questions and saved me from problems. First time when i went to Shiridi it was a great Experience.
I worked in Chennai and my aspiration was to go to Onsite (US/Japan). I tried in many ways nothing worked out. Finally, I got an opportunity in one of the MNC Company and they promised me that they will send me to Japan for long term but i have to work in Mumbai after I return. Joining formalities were done at Mumbai office and i went to Shiridi happily during the week end. I was really happy to visit Shiridi and the experience I have, I cannot tell in words. I really felt, I achieved something in my life. I also felt that purpose of visiting Mumbai is complete after seeing Sai Baba. Next Day I joined the office at Mumbai and was waiting for my manager to tell me when I need to start to Japan. I brought all the things from Chennai already to go to Japan. This was the first time, I came out of my house and parents. I felt some kind of burden because I was away from my parents for the first time. Since I need to overcome my family financial needs I decided to take this step.
Next day I heard from my manager that whatever project they expected is not worked out and they asked me to work in Mumbai and Japan–onsite–Dream Lost. I love my parents, they are very old & i usually a home sick person. In order to overcome my family financial needs i took a decision to go to Japan. I lost Onsite and i need to stay away from my parents now. Next morning, i fought with the HR requested to transfer me at least to Chennai branch. They were very rude and they said there is no other option other than to work in Mumbai. I don’t like to lose the job. I have a lot of commitments in life. My entire family is living with my earnings. My elder brother (no job), younger brother (studying in college), father (retired) and mother. I don’t know what to do. I felt really bad and went to nearby Sai Baba temple. I cried, i did not ask anything. I just left Mumbai and came to Chennai without informing to HR and others. Once i reached home, i started to read Sai Satcharitra and 4th day HR called to my home and asked me how i can leave without informing them. At end of the call, they said me to join Chennai office. I lost interest for onsite aims. Later, I realized God has given me a wonderful life, we need to enjoy whatever we have and I feel all this incident happened only to make me to Visit Shiridi. I felt really happy that Sai Baba wanted me to visit Shiridi. Sai Baba gifted me a US opportunities after a year and I stayed for 18 months in US. Sai Ram, thanks for all Your help and You are my life Baba. Baba bring His devotees like a sparrow tied to thread, I realized those words meaning in my life.
Anonymous Devotee says: I am a recent devotee of Sai and I am regular reader of this blog. My son always had complains from his school. I don’t know what to do. He had poor grades too. Teachers said, he doesn’t know anything. When I pick him up from school, Everyday, I was scared to face the teachers. I cry everyday in front of God that please help him to improve in studies. I do all fasting and Pardakshinas, but nothing worked. One day, one of my friend said about Sai and His Leelas, and she gave me Sai Satcharitra to read. Then I did Parayanam. On 7th day, teacher said that he is improving and let’s see what’s going to happen at the end of the year. It increased my faith on Sai, but at the end, he got bad report card. I was really sad and cried in front of Sai.
After I found out this website and came to know about Sai Vrat. I did Sai Vrat on summer holidays. Then he started his new school year. His new teacher said on first day of the school in the morning that your son has academic problem, he needs to go to special school. My husband and I were really upset and stressed. After one week of starting school, my son cried and didn’t talk to anyone and said mama I hate this teacher. That Thursday I went to Sai Mandir of our area, and cried in front of Sai. At last, I really give him condition that if You don’t show the right path before next Thursday, I will never pray You anymore. I know this is wrong but I don’t know what to do. He is the one, everything for me. Next Monday, my dad had severe heart attack, so we moved to my mom’s home and changed my son’s school close to us. Here is my Sai Maa helped us. His new school changed him a lot. He started to study well and has got his good report card. Thank You Sai and Thank you Hetal ji.
Sai sister Divya from India says: I am a small devotee of Baba. I have been His devotee since childhood. Since I was a kid, He has been helping me and has looked after me like a real mother. In fact He is my Real parent, My God, My Friend, Everything. My husband is also Sai devotee and after our marriage he is devoted more towards Him. But my in-laws are not. But they respect and worship Him like other Gods. Yesterday me and my husband along with our 2 year old son went to Sai Baba temple nearby our place with new blanket and a shawl for Baba. Once we entered, we were so happy to see Baba was wearing dress given by us few months back. Baba has so many dresses given by many people and we went to that specific Baba’s Temple after so long. It was like Baba had accepted our service. The priest asked us if those were your parents (My in-laws) whom I told to get shawl and blanket for Baba. We replied our parents have never come to this place and so it was. We just brought this by our own. See the priest had told somebody else to bring, but we bought it first. I am hereby enclosing Baba’s Picture clicked in the Temple yesterday with shawl and dress He wore. See Baba has unique way to accept the service towards Him. Have faith and patience on Lord Sai. Please devotees always give Dakshina to the one who need the most. Baba can come in any form. All your negative deeds of past births He will remove by this Dakshina (Non attachment). We cannot imagine our life without His blessings. Om Sai Ram. God bless all.
Anonymous Devotee from USA says: Hi, I am a staunch devotee of Baba and I won’t be surviving today if He isn’t with me. You are doing good work by maintaining this site and providing this platform for all the devotees. I promised Baba that I will share this miracle if all went well. I got a new work laptop. The charger I was given as a spare one to keep at home wasn’t the right one. I planned to work from home one day but after coming home I realized that it wasn’t the right one as the capacity was low. I was tensed and that day while on bed I was praying to Baba to show me a way. Next morning when I woke up to my surprise the left over charge which showed 5 hours the night before was showing 7.5 hours which was sufficient for my work. I was spellbound as this is His way of showing His children that He is there for us. I promised Baba that I would write my experience for the first time and here I am fulfilling my promise to Him. Om Sai Ram.
Anonymous Devotee from India says: I am a devotee of Sai. My kid was born on Thursday. He was not well for one and half month. We prayed Baba to cure his disease. Finally he was out of disease. But now my kid is having another very serious problem. His eye sight is -8. So please Sai devotees, Please pray for my kid to recover from eye disease. One day, i thought to do Abhishekam to Sai Baba. Abhishekam time was 7:30. I went to sleep and i did not wake up till 6:30. Then i got one dream. My father was calling me through phone that how much time you will take to come to Temple. Suddenly i woke up and i saw time. It was 6:30. After seeing the time, i ran to Baba’s Temple.
