Anonymous Devotee from US says: Dear Hetal ji, I am a regular reader of your blog and it really draw more close to Sai Baba and boost up my energy to face hurdle of life. I am sharing a Miracle, which i experienced when i started performing the Nine Thursdays Sai Vrat. This is my fifth week. I completed my MBBS in India and got married and came to US in 2012 and preparing for my steps, my husband also completed MBBS in India and trying to get in to residency this year. I started 9 Thursday Vrat praying for his residency. There were sequence of events from past two years that occurred in my life that changed everything upside down and that was the first time in my life i had seen my parents so helpless. Myself and my brother come from a very protected family and my parents tried to protect us from every possible trouble and we had a very fulfilled happy family till that time.
All our troubles started from 2012 and never stopped. First we also lost a property in India as a part of road widening worth of a 90 Lakhs but we were not very affected by this incident and thought everything happens for reason and we may not get full value for that land but government pays half value of that land and it is ok. After this incident, few months later my brother who got married in the same year had marital problems which were getting worse and he was going through a lot of stress and trying to save his marriage (I don’t want to blame anyone and i think everything happens is known to Baba and is for our good). But he finally got divorced in 2013 June. People around us tried to insult us, some blamed us, some felt really sad for us. My family went through a lot of criticism and pain all through this time. It was so bad that it was hard for us to spend a single day happily, as the problem was way more than depression and hard to explain. We kept reminding our self that Baba is the only one in this universe Who can help us and make things normal. On the other hand my husband’s attempts (twice) to get in to residency were not successful and that was troubling us mentally. I was wasting time and not preparing well with enough dedication for my USMLE step exams, so didn’t write any exam.
This all time from 2012 has been very stress full to my family which affected my mother a lot who is Sai Baba’s devote from past 20 years and reached a point where she lost hope in Baba and life but we all kept on chanting Baba’s Name because He is the only saviour in ours life’s. This blog helped me a lot and gave me a lot of comfort and courage. Finally Baba started answering our prayers and we felt His presence and blessings. My dad was offered a chairman position in secretariat which is very dignified and high position and i prayed Baba that i will do Parayanam if he gets that position. Baba heard my prayers and my family after a long time felt happy. We got our property (even though government took some part of it, now it is on road side so value of the land increased and came near to the old value). Through this blog, i came to know about Sai Baba 9 Thursday Vrat, so i decided to do 9 Thursday Vrat and this is my fifth week. We started searching match for my brother and we finally found a nice match last week and we are planning wedding.
My brother had sprained his neck 1 week back, when he was working till late night in office and pain was not subsiding. So he visited a doctor, who ordered serum calcium levels and x ray and in results his serum calcium levels are 11.4 (Friday) which are very high. Normal cause of high calcium level is hyperparathyroidism and requires surgery and some very rare cases for high calcium level are cancer. When he informed me about his calcium levels, i being a medico (I always go for extreme causes) was so worried and started crying what if he has some rare disease and prayed to Baba and applied Udi to his photo and placed it at Baba Feet. I told the whole scenario to my husband and he asked my brother to go to another diagnostic centre and get his serum calcium again tested and lab result came on Monday which was a pure Baba blessing stating that his calcium and parathyroid levels are in normal range (This is a real Miracle because it is very rare that reports are wrong). Now i am waiting for Baba’s blessing for my husband’s residency and i am confident that he will selected this year with the blessing of Baba. Even if it takes time, Baba will never forget His devotes. Have patience and everything will be fine with Baba’s blessings. Om Sai Ram Sri Sachidanand Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai.
Anonymous Devotee from India says: Om Sri Sai Ram, I am a long term Sai devotee. I use to go to Baba Temple on every Thursday. After offering 12 Pardakshinas (circumambulation the Temple) and Namasakar (prostration), I used to sit in front of Him just staring at His Idol and pray. He has solved so many problems in my life. But recently, I fractured my left knee and underwent surgery. With Baba’s Grace, surgery was successful and I started recovering. But the recovery was very slow and the surgeon was not happy over the improvement. Even after 5 weeks of continued physiotherapy, I was not able to bend my knee to right angle and lift my leg against gravity. I used to cry with pain after every physiotherapy exercise. On my visit of 6th week, surgeon told me that since warmth and swelling around the knee have not come down, he has to think about re-operating and remove the K-wiring. I came home with a heavy heart and prayed before Baba that I will read the book of Nav Vrat (Nine prayers) for 9 days continuously and I told Him that if I am not able to lift my leg at least to some extent, I won’t pray to Him anymore. I started doing Nav Vrat Pooja with Sai Ashtotram (prayer) daily. On 6th day itself I could bend my knee to 90 degrees and I was showing steady progress. And, of course, because of His Grace, I was able to lift my leg also to some extent. I completed my nine days of doing that Pooja and now I am slowly recovering. I don’t know if the way of doing Nav Vrat is right or not, but Baba has solved my problem with my humble prayer and listened to this layman’s way of worshipping. He has been doing wonders in my daughter’s life also and keeps blessing her. My Pranam (bow) to Sri Sai Ram. Sai Ram!
Anonymous Devotee from USA says: I bow down to the great Sai Baba before I share my experience with all the devotees. Both my wife and I are great followers of Shirdi Sai Baba, it is so difficult to imagine our life without Him. He has been in our life from last 8 years and there is hardly any moment without His remembrance. I would like to share my second experience with all the devotees and let them know that Shraddha and Saburi always pay. We have a portal in our company where we can share our unique ideas related to work that are reviewed by a committee and if recognized, they will be submitted to US patent committee. When my promotion was in discussion with higher management, it was one of the key point that was discussed. I did not have any ideas that were recognized during my promotion. However I had full faith in Sai Baba that at least one of my ideas submitted will be recognized and I prayed to Baba that i will write my experience after i get first recognition. However I forgot to do so, meanwhile, i got 3 ideas that are recognized and are being filed. Two more are under review. I have full faith in Baba that even these 2 will be recognized. I am sharing this experience with all the devotees so that everyone knows how Baba fulfils our desires more than we expect. He always stays with us and helps in all situations. We should have complete faith and patience.
Sai Sister Radhika from India says: I am a humble Sai daughter, who believes and preaches, My Sai can bring me through any situation. Sai Ram. I have been visiting Shirdi since i was 14 or 15 years old. Generally my father and i would love going for the Kakad Aarti i.e. morning Aarti and i would always think, how beautiful it would feel to stand close to Sai and sing Aarti for Him, but i never got a chance. As i grew up and got married my faith still grew stronger but my wish of being in an Aarti standing in the first row was never fulfilled. With the internet Wi-Fi era, both me and my husband would listen to Shirdi Baba’s Aarti on you tube and feel satisfied. This time, when my husband booked an online Aarti pass for Darshan for our entire family, i was sure to carry a Aarti Book, so that i could sing along. But i forgot about it and remembered when we reached the Temple. Just by chanting Sai’s Name, all of us entered the Temple and was mesmerised looking at Baba. Just as the Aarti was about to start, i noticed an Aarti Book with a girl standing before me. She happily shared the book with me and i could sing the Aarti with others. It was indeed a dream come true. I was so elated that i forgot all that i thought i would ask Baba and came out simply thanking Him. Thanks a lot Baba for strengthening my faith and hope your blessing get me a job too soon. Sai Ram.
Anonymous Devotee from India says: It’s about how I came in contact with Sai Baba and what my experience was. In the year 2008, I came to know about Sai Baba through a friend of mine. I was eager to know about Him as she told me that she prays for Him and He has helped her a lot. She told me to read Sai Baba Satcharitra and told me how to read it. When I started reading the Miracles of Sai Baba, I was thinking whether these miracles happen to people. First time when I was supposed to finish the book on Wednesday, I heard a voice outside, “Sai Baba Ke Naam Pey Dey Dey Baba” (Give in the name of Sai Baba). I was surprised and shocked first, I heard the voice carefully, it was clear again he said “Sai Baba Ke Naam Pey Dey Dey Baba” (Give in the name of Sai Baba). I went outside. I saw a Fakir (Saint) standing outside and asking for alms. He sat in front of our gate, he said somebody has already given him food, he needs only water to drink. I gave him water and while going I was seeing him, he said you go inside and don’t turn back. After sometime I tried to see him, but couldn’t see the Fakir (Saint) nearby. Before that, never any Fakir (Saint) came near by our house for alms and later on also i did not see anyone. I know it was the answer to my questions while reading the Satcharitra which Sai Baba had provided me.
Anonymous Devotee from India says: Jai Sai Ram, i am a teacher and lives in Pune from last 3 years. Hi to all, thanks to hetal ji to create this page. I want to share my experience with all. I married with vikas in 2008. At that time, he was in BPO field and wanted to complete his post graduation. That’s why he decided to do MBA in marketing. After completing MBA with lot of problem and stress, he got a job in marketing. But this time also, he was not satisfied. He wanted to do something different. One of his friend told him about SAP technology. With the Sai’s Aashirwad, we arranged money for this course, and he passed that exam and after 2 month he got a job in IT. Thanks Sai Ram for showing a great path to us. I know You are always with us to show a right path. Om Sai Ram.
