Anonymous Devotee from USA says: Om Sai Ram, I have been a Baba devotee from past 7 years through my husband. During my college days, one of my friend used to fast on Thursdays. I thought why is she fasting for a human. Even today I feel guilty for my thought. But after my marriage, my thinking has changed. Our marriage happened on Thursday and my husband was also born on Thursday. I visited couple of times to Shiridi along with my husband. Now for our family everything is Baba. Even my brothers and sister in laws and my mom are also His devotees. My mom has come to USA for my second baby delivery. She has asthma and has been using medication for it from very long time. One day suddenly her inhaler was missing. We searched whole house but could not find it anywhere. Since it was transparent in colour, it was very difficult to locate it. We all very tensed as she had only one inhaler with her. We called our dad in India and asked him to courier it at the earliest. Mom prayed to Baba saying if I find the inhaler i will offer a coconut. That day evening she suddenly found and was very relieved and happy. This might be a very small incident but from her health point of view, this is a Baba blessing to her.
When ever my wishes come true, I do Sai Divya Pooja for 5 Thursdays which is similar to Nav Guruvar Vrat. This Pooja has to be done by reading Ashtotram Naamavali by offering flowers or petals to Baba Feet. We bring fresh flowers on Wednesday evening and I will do Pooja on Thursday afternoon with them. Sometimes due to my husband’s workload, getting flowers was delayed hence my Pooja was getting postponed to evenings. So I thought of buying silver flowers coated with gold to do this Pooja but I could not. I felt sad, but then i decided to use fresh flowers for Pooja. After my delivery (which was also a miracle, I will share about this in another article), I thought of doing this 5 week Divya Pooja. But as I have to go to my best friend’s baby shower, I postponed the Pooja to week after the function. I attended the baby shower and while returning my friend has gifted a dress for my newborn baby as they could not come to his cradle ceremony. After reaching home when I removed the dress from the gift bag I was surprised and felt very happy. Because she gifted me the same flowers which I initially thought of buying. And these flowers reached me at the same period when I was planning to start this Pooja. It’s such a beautiful miracle of Baba, He showered us with His blessing with these flowers through my friend. I am extremely grateful to Baba and my friend. A word of thanks to them will not do justice. My friend is also a great devotee of Baba and I will post her experiences also soon.
This experience is related to my son who is now 3 month old. He is our second kid. I have a 4 year old daughter and I already posted a great miracle of her life. I got conceived in Feb 2014 with my 2nd kid and even before we could share this news with my parents or friends, complications started with my pregnancy. Due to bleeding we had to go to emergency. As kids are not allowed my husband had to go back to home to take care of her and I was alone in the hospital. We didn’t want to give tension to our friends so we didn’t tell anyone about this otherwise they would have helped us wholeheartedly. By Baba’s Grace, we have very helpful people around us here. After performing all tests doctors said it’s too early to say anything so asked me to visit every week for scanning and checkups. And during my weekly visits doctors said we have 50-50 chances only for this pregnancy. My husband through Baba’s questions and answers asked Baba about our situation and we felt extremely happy to see the answer. The answer was something like “A Baby boy will be born”. What more can I say about Baba’s Miracle. After few months during the scanning we came to know that it’s a boy and as Baba said after my 9th month a baby was born.
During my 4th month, I had to go to India with my daughter to attend my younger brother’s wedding. I roamed lot of places and ate all kind food and had nice time there. I even went to Bombay from Hyderabad for our visa stamping along with my husband. I enjoyed my trip casually and by His Grace my whole India trip went fine and we came back to USA during my 7th month. Throughout my India my health was perfectly fine just because Baba was taking caring of me and my baby. After coming back one day I had dream in which I was asking my mom when did I deliver, I don’t remember anything to which my mom said i don’t know the date but its Dashami. I was actually very much worried because my due date 21st October, it was around Amavasya time. Since I had c-section with my 1st pregnancy we scheduled a repeat c-section for 16th October, Thursday Dashami. Then on 13th morning 5 AM suddenly I woke up with pain and my water broke. We got ready and went to hospital. The journey time from home to hospital was very horrible for me with severe labour pains. I was just chanting Baba’s Name and asked Him to take me fast to the hospital and till then my delivery should not happen. I got admitted at 6:15. Then nurse said baby is ready to come out all you have to do is couple of pushes. We were shocked as we were expecting for caesarean and were mentally not prepared for normal delivery. But I always wanted to try for normal but everyone said not to take risk. Even on 12th October, a day before my delivery suddenly a thought came to my mind. Baba why don’t You do a miracle so that I don’t have to go for c-section, But never expected that it will come true.
Doctor and nurses were encouraging but we said we want c-section only as we don’t want to take any risk. They were doing all the preparations of c-section at the same time asked me try to push. My husband applied Udi on my forehead and after couple of pushes baby was delivered. For few minutes we could not believe that this really has happened with us. Because usually pregnant ladies will try for normal and might have to go for c-section but in our case we planned for c-section and never thought that this Miracle can happen to us. I delivered the baby without taking the pain medication and that just around 40 minutes after joining the hospital. Baba, all I can say is please keep loving and blessing us like this. As I told in my dream I forgot about when I delivered, may be it meant that I will deliver the baby very easily without suffering with pain for long time. Another miracle with my baby happened after his cradle ceremony. We did his naming ceremony at home and after few days invited all our friends to celebrate the occasion at a party hall. After party was completed we started back to home. My daughter and son were in the middle seats and as a seat beside them was stuffed with luggage I sat in front seat thinking our home is just 5 minutes from here so baby should be fine in the middle seat without me. While we were on the drive baby cried a lot so we stopped the car and I took him into my hands. We thought my daughter did something to him so he cried suddenly. She was tired and cranky as she missed her afternoon nap. When calmed down we came home and relaxed for few hours.
In the evening, my mom realized that his gold ring was missing. Then our daughter said that she pulled gold ring in the car which was on my son’s little finger. But she does not know where it has fallen. We searched it in the car, parking lot, car seat, home every possible place but couldn’t find it. The thought that baby might have swallowed it has scared us a lot. We were just praying that it’s ok if the ring is lost but he should not swallow it. After few days we completely forgot about the ring. Exactly after 1 month 3 days i.e. on 3rd day which was a Friday, my husband went to school to pick my daughter and came back parked the car. Suddenly he found the ring in the parking lot. We were really shocked because finding back our gold outside the house on the road sounds similar to impossible. Ring might have fallen from the car seat after coming from the party but it stayed there for almost 33 days without falling into anyone’s eyes. It was a gift from my father-in-law to my son.
During my 8th month, we came to know that my husband’s project will end in few days and hence he has to search for new job. But because of my pregnancy, the situation was like we should find a job as soon as possible in the same place. Because relocating was difficult option for us as I was nearing my due date. And he cannot leave me alone and work in some other location. So I prayed to Baba saying please show a job in this same place as soon as possible, he will do 5 week Sai Divya Pooja. Immediately he got 2 offers so we did not have to move from this place. He had to stay jobless for few days but by Baba’s Grace paper work was done quickly and he could start his work. All his colleagues were very cooperative during our delivery time as he had to spend more time at the hospital taking care of us.
This one is a very small one happened to us on new year day. First we went to Baba Temple, there my husband offered $5 and then we went to Bala ji Temple. He wanted to offer $11 but he had only $10 so he offered and came out of the Temple. Suddenly he found $1 on the floor outside the temple. He ran into Temple and offered that $1. That amount is not ours but he felt very happy to find it that too in the Temple premises. For New Year celebrations my brother and his wife visited us. After the New Year day, we went to a shopping mall as we wanted to buy a dress for our daughter’s birthday which is due in few days. My brother and his wife had some work in another store so they went there. Me, my mom and my husband were searching dress in kids section along with our daughter and son. Usually when we go for shopping my daughter plays in and around the same area where we are. Suddenly we realized that she is missing. We searched whole kids section couple of times because we thought she will not cross this area. Then my husband went out of the store and searched. Then again we started searching in all sections of the store. We decided to go to sales associate and ask their help for announce that she is missing and let us know if anyone has her. Throughout the search we were asking Baba to keep her safe. Luckily one lady came to us and told that she knows where the little girl is. She took him to her and we found her. She later told us, I spoke to them that I am lost, my name is XXX and I am 3 year old can you find my mommy and daddy. It’s only Baba’s Miracle that instead of crying she could speak all these to the sales associates in the store.
Anonymous Devotee from India says: I work as a software professional in a leading MNC. I have gone through many turbulences in life and every time by Baba’s Grace, i have been able to recover from it. I am into some problems now and seeking His reply on this, expect Him resolve all my issues this time also. Dear Maa, My whole life after 2006 is surrendered and guided by You. Every time i am in need of You, i have found You beside me and helping me by showing the correct way. I prayed to cure my mother from the deadly disease and You fulfilled my wish by granting her few more years of life. As a vow, when i went to Your Temple to break 108 coconuts from nowhere, You had sent more than 100 students from Sai Nilayam to share the joy with me and also take the Prasad. Everyone including the Pujari of the Temple were surprised to see this kind of unusual crowd. You blessed my child who was born with milk intolerance. It was You who came in my dream and told me the reason of the ailment which even the best of the doctors were not able to diagnose. You told me not to worry and i left everything to You. Since then, You have been taking care of him. Second time also, when he was supposed to be operated for prolapsed problem, You turned things so well that everything became alright without any medication and there was no reason for any surgery.
In 2011, You had appeared near the dead bed of my mother and blessed her before she emerged in You forever in a day. After You came and blessed her saying that she will be free from all this pain, she had become normal enough to talk and narrate the whole scene to me. Though i was sleeping at her feet the whole night, i did not get any hint of You coming and talking to her. When she told me that You had promised her that she will be freed from all her pain, i as a human being thought she will recover fully and was very confident. When she passed away just a day after this incident, i was very angry on You saying that You cheated me and took away my mother from me. Then slowly i started seeing her in You. Since then, i have accepted You as my mother. I was somehow getting back to myself after losing my mother that my father suffered from heart attack 2 times within 1 week time. Both the time, You miraculously saved him. This strengthened my faith in You.
There are again some rough time in life now. My personal, social life, mental peace, health of my son, husband and me everything is disturbed now. Disturbance in family, neighbourhood keeps me very upset. I am searching for Your answer everywhere. I am so upset and disturbed that i am looking for You in everything and everyone and except someone to come and say me that “Nothing to worry, everything is and will be fine”. Maa, i must have done something very bad in the last janma that i am going through all this. But also i think, i have something very good that i have got Ashrya at Your Holy Feet. The problems and worries that i have not discussed with anyone so far, but i tell the same to You every time and every moment. I am very sure that You will help me this time also. You will make everything alright. I have never asked You for money, houses or any such material thing, but Maa please give me my peace of mind back. Let me go to You with handful of thanks for letting me lead a life without worrying about health of any of my family members. It’s not true that i pray You when i am need. I want to pray You without any fear as i casually and intimately i speak to my Mother. Please reply to me.
Anonymous Devotee from Australia says: Dear Sai Devotees, Om Sai Ram. I am a humble devotee of Baba originally from India living in Australia. This is my second posting of Our Amazing journey of Miracles with Sai Maa. Dear Hetal ji, hats off to you and your team members for maintaining this blog of Leelas which are acting as a beacon light and helping us have Shradda and Saburi as per Our Sai’s Guidance. What would I have done without Baba, if I am breathing today I owe it to my Sai Maa. I have been undergoing a lot of personal problems in life. I have a 4 year old daughter who is also very keen devotee of Sai. We trust Baba has always been protecting us in every little step we have made further in our lives. He is our Mom and Dad and we are really lucky to have surrendered to His Lotus feet. His miracles are never ending and as He has aptly said “If you keep one step towards Me, I will keep 100 towards you”. He is always next to us.
We were on holidays visiting family in Sydney. Even there He was always with us showing His presence at my relative’s house & friend’s car had His Photos. We are so blessed, we could visit Sydney Sai Mandir on Gurupurnima day. On the last day of the trip my daughter fell from her chair when we were having lunch outside with a friend and she was crying too much and felt real dizzy, which was unusual. When I carried her my hand had blood and it was from behind the left side of the head. I was in shock and shivering as I saw her blood and almost unconscious. In a panic state, i was crying a lot, we rushed her to nearby clinic. There the doctor who examined her said he will not even treat her as the wound is really huge and have to take her to emergency at a hospital to get stitches. I couldn’t handle this and was weeping. I started praying Baba to please help my daughter so the bleeding stops and not to have any stitches as it will be too painful for my little one. I said Om Sai Ram 9 times. Miraculously the bleeding stopped before we got to the emergency at hospital, the triage nurse examined her and said a glue would be sufficient as the bleeding had stopped.
When we were waiting in the queue for the doctor to treat her, I started to read the Sai Kasht Nivaran Mantra, next instant my daughter who was very lethargic and not talking, became alert, got up and started to playfully talk to my friend. We had to take a flight in the next 4 hrs to Melbourne and we were running out of time to even cancel the tickets. I was worried whether she will be able to travel after the accident and praying for some solution to Baba. The doctor than glued the laceration and said we can travel in the next 2 – 3 hours. Although she was in pain, in next few hours we made it to Melbourne. Baba how can we ever thank You for all You have done. After a week on Father’s Day, my daughter also had a dream where Baba wore an orange dress with Silver dots, He sat next to her on the bed and caressed her wound said to her “I am your Daddy forever”. She even now sleeps with a little Idol of Sai under her pillow. Baba’s Udi which we consume regularly has cured her of asthma she has from age 1. Thank You Baba Appa we love You, i cannot express in words how grateful we are for all Your blessings. We also recently had a chance to visit Shirdi in the month of December which was so miraculous, I will narrate this in my following blog. Jai Sai Ram. Anantha Koti Brahmand Nayak Raajadhiraj Yogiraj Sri Sachidanand Samartha Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai!
Anonymous Devotee from India says: Om Sai Ram, I want to share my recent experience which happened on this 30th Dec 2014 and Sai gave me a beautiful gift of 31st Dec 2014. Yes Sai gave me most wonderful day with one call. I left the job on 31st Oct 2014 and since from last 2 months, i was searching for job but nothing happened. Many times, I asked Question on “Question and Answer’ site but no useful. Later i gave many interviews, but all company (where I gave an interview) were very far from my home location. I was searching job near to my location. Then suddenly I checked my fiancé mail (as he is also IT Professional). I saw one mail for the same post for which i was searching. I replied to that mail from my mail id. And within 1 hour i got call from HR that they selected me for interview. Later I gave an interview on Monday i.e. 29th Dec 2014.
Now started the Miracle of Baba, out of 6 candidates, we 2 got selected in final round. Then after final round they told us that they will contact if they select us. I was in tension. Then I asked question on ‘Question and Answer’ site that this job is for me or not? I got answer “Donate floor, you will get result”. As I donated floor to birds and after 3-4 hours I got call from HR that i am selected and they want my document for further process. I was really happy at that time. Really Sai gave me wonderful gift on 31st Dec 14. As of now HR is on leave so she will contact me on Monday. Because of HR on Leave i was very tensed as they will not change their decision after comeback from holidays, so I pray to Baba that give me hint with yellow colour of Your statue and later after 3-4 times, I got Baba in yellow colour even on 1st Jan 2015, i went to Sai Mandir and Baba was in yellow clothes. I was very happy. And yes finally they called me and said that they will select more experienced candidates. I was very upset but it’s Sai world and Miracle happened on same day 29th Dec 2014. I gave an interview with another company. They called me and gave me offer letter. Really, i am very happy as i was just accepting good job where I gave 1st interview but where I gave 2nd interview they have same domain for which I was searching. So everything is now alright with Sai Grace. Ananta Koti Brahmand Nayak Raajadhiraj Yogiraj Parabrahma Shri Sachidanand Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai.
Anonymous Devotee from India says: Om Sai Ram. Firstly I would like to thank you for maintaining this beautiful blog. It certainly lifts up once spirit reading such wonderful Leelas and experiences. I have had many miracles of Baba in my life and want to share my very recent experience. I know Baba since my childhood but became His firm devotee only since 2012. It’s my brother who first started believing in Baba in our family and all His experiences drew me towards Baba. Since then Baba has been showering His love on us. I am recently blessed with a baby boy with our Sai Maa’s blessing. He is just in his third month now and it is very painful for me to see him suffering from cold. One night when his cold got really bad and he was finding it difficult to breath due to his stuffy nose. He was having a very disturbed sleep. I prayed Baba to please have mercy on this small child and cure him. To my surprise, he got little better and slept well that night. Though he still has little bit cold but he is better than before. I sincerely pray Baba to please cure my baby fully and bless him always with good health. Please Baba, Please help my baby to get rid of this bad cold. Please help Your child. Please bless everyone always with good health. Please bless me and my baby soon to have Your Darshan at Shirdi before we leave India. Om Sai Nathaya Namaha.
Sai Brother Sagar from India says: I am devotee of Lord Ganesha from my childhood. I ever never liked to worship any Gods other than Lord Ganesha. In 2008, i started to follow Shirdi Sai Baba and i don’t know the reason why i started to believe Baba so much. I really felt that i am cheating Lord Ganesha and i was feeling guilt in my heart and mind. One fine day Baba cleared my doubt through His Dream. The Dream was: I was going alone in street. I saw lord Ganesha’s big Picture on vehicle and it was looking nice and when i came near vehicle that Lord Ganesha image converted to Shirdi Sai Baba. In confusion once again i saw it was lord Ganesha. After few seconds again it became Shirdi Sai Baba and also it’s not a radium Picture. I was in confusion in my dream. My mom made the noise and i was awaken. By this, i clearly understood that Baba listened my prayer and answered my prayer. Shirdi Sai Baba is Lord Ganesha, Rama, Krishna. Worshipping Shirdi Sai Baba is equal to worshipping 100000 Gods. It’s Damn True.
