My First Trip To Shirdi

Anonymous Devotee from India says: Om Sai Ram, thank you Hetal ji for giving us this nectar for the soul which brings a lot of peace. This is my second experience which I am sharing, first was how Baba came into my life, which was published in 2012 and from then on I have experienced a lot of miracles. I always wanted to share, but somehow the time had not come to do or Baba wanted me to wait. Now I am going to share some miracles which I have experienced as soon as Baba took me into His fold.

I had mentioned in my previous experience, I was introduced to Baba by my trainer and now my best friend. She gave me a book of Baba. I wanted to read the book but somehow I was not able to read. One day, I decided and I told Baba that I will start reading the book, but before I finish this book, You should call me to Shirdi (As I am physically challenged person, I was not sure how can I go to a new place ) then I will believe You. I had just finished half of the book, when I told my parents that I wanted to go to Shirdi. They said, Yes. Normally, my parents are always worried that how would i travel and also there would be too much of rush as I walk with help of crutches. What if someone pushes me and if I fall. But when Baba wants a devotee to come to Him, He only arranges everything. That was 100% right in my case.

I stay in Bangalore, there were two options to go to Shirdi from our place. By train to Kopargaon or By flight to Bombay. Now flight was costly for us. Suddenly, my father gave an idea to go to my native and then take Konkan train to Mumbai and from there my uncle who stays in Mumbai will take us to Shirdi. Now here comes the real magic of Baba. We tried for two trains from my native to Mumbai and both were booked. It was in waiting list, which was impossible to clear so we were thinking that we have to drop the idea. But my cousin called up and said that there is one more train, which we never knew and that train has 50 available seats. Can you believe it and we immediately booked it. So we were on the way to Mumbai and from there to Shirdi in a car.

We reached Shirdi at 10.45. Before the Aarti, they were cleaning the place, so they were not allowing devotees inside. As I am a challenged person, the security guard said that after Aarti he will allow me. As I cannot stand in a queue, so we sat in the place where there is a TV, watched the Aarti. As soon as the Aarti was over, I went near the gate. The security guard allowed me to go and my mother was with me. I went inside. I was going in the center place and I saw all the people were coming backwards. I was scared what if they push me. So I just moved towards the railing and started walking sideways. As the floor had lot of rose petals and my crutches were slipping because of that, so I took support of side railing. All people in the queue started moving forward. I stood there, not knowing what to do, until Then I did not get glimpse of our Baba.

Suddenly, a security guard who was managing the crowd asked me Darshan Huya Kya (Did you have Darshan). I said, No. Then he made both the lines stop from either side. He held my arm, that’s all I remember. I don’t know how I walked the 4 steps. He put me in right front of Baba. I was mesmerized seeing Baba for the first time. I just don’t remember anything, I only know that I was crying. I just could not stop. I stood there for more than 5 minutes. Then a priest who was standing near Baba took a bunch of roses, which was near Baba’s Feet and gave it to me. The peace I got, I have never experienced that until then and then moved back and stood again for some time. When i came out, my parents thought that someone had hurt me so I was crying so much. But i could not explain how I was feeling. I hope all my devotee friends will understand how a person who can’t walk without the crutches walked those four steps without my knowledge. It was Baba who was taking me to His fold. I want to share a lot of experiences. Next time, i will share, how Baba cured my cramp which I used to get on my leg by coming in my dream. Thank You Baba for being there for me. I love You so much. Please bless everyone. Baba will listen to us when we have Shradda and Saburi. Om Sai Ram. I love You Baba.

Sai Miracles In My Life

Anonymous Devotee from India says: By Sai’s grace, i become a Business woman and i still have a long way to go. Sai Ram, You are my Success, my Happiness, my Peace, my World. Thank you Hetal ji. This is my 3rd or 4th experience, i am writing to you, where i told how my Sai changed my life from thorn to rose, and changed me from normal, depressed, no-more-knowledge of the world girl to a confident business woman.

Miracle 1: I am married, my brother stays with us. I had a fight with my brother early in the morning. The reason was so silly, i told him something about Not-to-do, instead of taking it as a feedback, he shouted and started getting ready to go to the office. I stood in front of the beautiful Sai frame, telling how nice it would be, if my brother took it as a advice and corrected himself, and told Sai with tears filled if he really realizes that it was a mistake shouting at me, he would ask for a sorry (He never had asked for a sorry till date) and then sat working on laptop. Not even 5 minutes passed, my brother got ready in a hurry as it was getting late for him and before running out, came to me told “Sorry, i will not repeat it again, forgive me, sorry for hurting you” and then gave a kiss and left to the office. I was literally surprised/shocked and tears rolled looking at Sai.

Miracle 2: My husband wanted to do a business, even he is a believer of Sai. He started doing 9 days Vrat. On 4th or 5th Vrat day, an company assistant manager called to ask us whether we are interested in doing catering to his MNC (We had spoken to the manager about doing catering a month back, and we had stopped thinking about it as we had got no response). We then happily agreed.

Miracle 3: After we took up catering, the HR approached me asking whether i can supply Biryani for her friend’s party. I told yes, though I had no idea about Biryani supplying from where and how. I used chits asking Sai what am i supposed to do now, as i was nervous because it was my first attempt and for a big team, and if it doesn’t turn out good then it may spoil my name in the company through the HR’s feedback. Guess what Sai told through chit, it was “You prepare it yourself”. I am such a bad cook, who never tried such Biryani. But taking Sai words as blessing, and thinking Him staying beside me. I learnt Biryani through you tube. On the party day, I started preparing and ended up doing when there was just 5-10 minutes left for delivering. But it did not turn out good, there was no yummy feeling when smelled, the rice was not well cooked. And what can i do in just 10 minutes, it was a feedback from others too at home. I was nervous, I prayed to Sai saying Sai You only has to help me, i followed Your words. Then I packed it and delivered. I wrote Om Sai in the pages. 100% it was not at all well cooked. Next day when i saw the HR, i was scared, but guess what happened, she gave an excellent feedback on Biryani, and she told that she was happy when all others told the same, as she had referred my name. Sai Ram. Love You a lot. Om Sai Ram.

Baba, i am waiting for one more miracle regarding my husband’s job. I know You will fulfill it soon and please make me post it as an miracle again. I am not jealous to get more and more, but I want to gain name and fame, because i have suffered a lot of humiliations, tears, thorny talks about me, cheats and hurts since childhood days which always made me think to end my life, but Sai gave me re-birth to prove. And I want to prove, everyone wrong. Om Sai Ram. Sai devotees, happy days or sad days, never forget Sai Maa.

Baba Saved My Nephew

Sai Sister Mamta from India says: Sai Ram Hetal ji, today i would like to share, how Baba saved my sister’s son. My sister got married in 2000. She gave birth to a girl in 2001 by Baba’s grace. In September 2005, she took 11 pills (To extend her monthly cycle) due to some reason. Then following month, she came to know that she is pregnant. She informed doctor that she took pills. Doctor told that it is really risky for baby, and advised to terminate pregnancy. My sister denied and continued with her pregnancy. She did Parayan for 9 months. By Baba’s grace, all went well. Delivery was normal. But after delivery, doctor informed to my Jija ji that chances of Baby’s survival is 2%. Still if they want, they can take baby to Baroda. Without any delay, Jija ji hired ambulance and started for Baroda.

On the way to Baroda, Baba showed His presence all the time. Doctor informed my Jija Ji not to remove oxygen mask, even for a second. Still on the way, before one hour reaching to Baroda, oxygen got finished. Then ambulance got stopped due to Mechanical problem. After all these obstacles, by Baba’s grace, they reached Baroda hospital safely. After reaching hospital, many tests were done, which showed that baby has rarest disease. Due to which baby won’t be able to survive normal life. He may get effect physically or mentally or both. Jija ji was in tears. Baby got admitted in baby’s ICU. Jija ji was outside the ICU. Then he saw a small Picture of Baba on the glass of ICU’s door. On which it was written “Why fear when I am here”. Jija ji closed his eyes and prayed to Baba. “You have given this boy to me, now his life is in Your hands” and cried. After that same tests were done again on the following day and here’s the greatest Miracle of Baba. All Test Were Normal. Jija ji was in tears with happiness. After three days of delivery, my sister came to Baroda to see her son. She cried a lot and thanked Baba for His wonderful Miracle. My nephew is healthy now and leading a normal life by Baba’s Grace. Om Sai Ram. Many miracles of our beloved Baba happened and are happening in me and my family’s life. Hope to share them soon. Baba Bless us all. Om Sai Ram.

Sai In My Life

Anonymous Devotee from UK says: Sai Baba had done everything I asked for the past 17 years, right from my marriage, UK Visa to job and my kid’s health. Om Sai Ram. I was in love and we requested my parents to agree for the wedding repeatedly and they never did. I prayed to Sai Baba. Our wedding took place in the presence of his parents and relatives and within 3 days my parents also accepted us. I thought all was well, but dowry harassment started and lasted for 5 years. I stopped praying to Sai, because I was angry that my life was bad. There was a man by name Sai Ram, who visited our house regularly and read good things about Baba and never expected anything in return. But I was always mean to him.

Finally I was pregnant and doctor was worried that it could not be a normal child as I was unaware of my pregnancy and my in laws cheated me with the help of a doctor and tried to abort the baby. But baby was born normal. But there torture increased. I was working to feed my baby and that torture passed to her and she went through a lot which made her autistic. That’s when I started praying and we got UK visa. We moved here, stayed away from my kid for 2 years and that made her condition worse. I hurried and got her here and we found the right school and support her and slowly she improved. The month, she moved to UK, my in laws fell sick and went through torture and they had nobody to help and they passed away. Then we had problems in getting PR. I prayed to Baba and now we have citizenship and also Baba always gives us more than we ask for. We bought a big house and are settled in good jobs. If i have any problem, I leave it to Him and do Nitya Parayanam. Sai is always there for people who believe. Thank You Baba for everything.

Baba’s Always Help In Trouble

Anonymous Devotee from Canada says: I am from Canada and a devotee of Sai Baba. Om Sai Ram. I am writing for the first time but will keep writing because Baba will keep Blessing me. A guy has been troubling me a lot from the past two months that I have not been eating, sleeping, or concentrating on my education. I have been reading all the posts on this blog. I had decided to start reading the Sai Satcharitra from a Thursday and to complete it within a week. On the night, I had completed, that is on Wednesday night, I got a dream of Sai Baba wearing red and golden clothes. I usually go to the Mandir on Thursday to pray to Baba but that Thursday, I had got late and thought I wouldn’t make it to the Mandir. But Baba made sure I reached the Mandir and saw that Baba was wearing the same clothes I had seen in my dream. Baba showed me that He will and always be there with me during my struggle and He will Bless me whenever I face any trouble. Truly Baba is great and will always be there. Om Sai Ram.

Miracle Of Sai Baba

Anonymous Devotee from India says: The other day I was looking for special type of fruit for my mother, and looked around the entire market. I was almost in tears, when i prayed to Sai Baba for help. And suddenly, I saw a fruit vendor, the only one left in the market who had exactly the same fruit I wanted for my mother. These incidents help me hold on to life in tough times. Thank You Sai Baba for being around.

  1. Sai baba….plzzzzz bless all the couples with healthy kids…ur kripa prasad…ur saiansh…complete thefamilies

  2. Sai Ram.
    I am from Canada in my early 30s. I have never prayed to Baba until recently. My life has been a struggle one after the other so my aunt advised me to pray to sai and do the Sai satcharitra vrat. I have finished my 9 weeks vrat and prayed to Baba for what I want, but no miracles have happened yet. There's a guy that I have been in love with for years and I've just recently told him that. He's my close friend and I believe he has the same feelings for me too but he's afraid of the commitment. I just don't know what to do. I have finished my 9 weeks vrat, now i am reading the book again, a chapter a day. Once the 9 week vrat finished i was going through a great financial difficulty and i know Baba helped me with my loan application. I really love this boy and i would do anything for him, I wish my prayers will be answered soon. Since I am in my early 30s and not married yet, I am facing many obstacles both in my family and work. Please advice on if i am doing anything wrong.

    • All you are doing is asking for benefits.
      Try to be friends with Baba first. Tell Him that you trust Him with everything. Just love Him. Unconditionally. In the realms of success and failure everytime.
      Don't get upset with not getting what you want. Because there are several devotees of Baba who love Him for many many years, and not because He has given them each and everything they want. It's not possible always.
      Surrender yourself to Him with full faith. Remember Him by chanting His name. Give Him Roses. Make Him kheer, halwas whatever you can. Just out of love. And try visiting Shirdi. But leave everything upon Him.. 🙂

  3. Om Sai Ram!!

  8. Dear devotees sairamji, can anyone suggest how to go to shirdi from delhi what is the easiest way flight or train please suggest the name also ??

    • Om Sai Ram,

      i am sorry i am from Bangalore. so all i could do was check in IRCTC and try to help.
      there are no trains i c direct to Shirdi. But there are trains to Kopargaon/manmad the nearest station. you can get many taxis/buses to reach Shirdi from there.
      There are 3 trains. 11078: Jhelum Express, 12780: Goa Express and 12628: Karnataka Express.
      For flight, i found information that nearest airport is Aurangabad and it will take 1 hr 20 mins in flight and from there a 2 to 3 hours drive.
      I hope this information is helpful and also hope you have a blissful trip 🙂

      Om Sai Ram

    I quit my job,
    my relationship,
    my spirituality…
    I wanted to quit my life.
    I went to the woods to have one last talk with god.

    “God”, I asked,
    “Can you give me one good reason not to quit?”.

    His answer surprised me…
    “Look around”, He said. “Do you see the fern and the bamboo ?

    “Yes”, I replied.

    “When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds, I took very good care of them.
    I gave them light. I gave them water. The fern quickly grew from the earth.
    Its brilliant green covered the floor. Yet nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo.

    In the second year the Fern grew more vibrant and plentiful.
    And again, nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo.

    He said,
    “In year three there was still nothing from the bamboo seed. But I would not quit.

    In year four, again, there was nothing from the bamboo seed. I would not quit.” He said.

    “Then in the fifth year a tiny sprout emerged from the earth. Compared to the fern it was seemingly small and insignificant…But just 6 months later the bamboo rose to over 10 feet tall.

    It had spent the five years growing roots. Those roots made it strong and gave it what it needed to survive.

    I would not give any of my creations a challenge it could not handle.”

    He asked me. “Did you know, my child, that all this time you have been struggling, you have actually been growing roots”.

    “I would not quit on the bamboo. I will never quit on you.”

    “Don’t compare yourself to others.” He said.

    ”The bamboo had a different Purpose than the fern.
    Yet they both make the forest beautiful.”

    "Your time will come”, God said to me.
    “You will rise high”.

    “How high should I rise?” I asked.

    “How high will the bamboo rise?” He asked in return.

    “As high as it can?” I questioned.

    ”Yes.” He said, “Give Me glory by rising as high as you can.”

    I left the forest and brought back this story.

    Never, Never, Never, Give up!!
    "In life, each relationship will have feelings and differences. ….it's Always better to be melted in feelings than to be frozen with differences"

  10.
