Anonymous Devotee from USA says: I am an instructor of Biology at a community college in Illinois. I am married and have two wonderful boys. We moved to US in 1997 and have been living in US for past 19 years. Due to some recent circumstances, I was drawn to Baba’s Feet. Om Sai Ram. On Baba’s inspiration, I would like to share a wonderful Miracle of Baba that happened very recently. I always believed in Baba, always worshipped His Picture in my home. About 9 years ago, a friend gave Shri Sai Satcharitra. I carried it with me in my bag, but never had a chance to finish reading it. In our town, we have weekly Sai Pooja held on Thursdays, sometimes I also went to the Pooja. In a nut shell I was not a staunch devotee of Baba. Sai Samsthan is in the process of building a Temple of Baba in our town. About a month before Deepawali they announced that Baba’s Padukas that will be installed in the Temple have arrived from Shiridi and there will be a big Pooja on the Deepawali night as in 2014 Deepawali was on a Thursday. After the Pooja any devotee can invite Baba’s Padukas in their home.
After hearing the announcement, I was not sure if i want to do Paduka Seva or not. However, out of curiosity, I was inquiring with another devotee regarding Baba’s Paduka Seva. On Baba’s inspiration, I requested Sai Samsthan, if I can invite Baba’s Padukas in my home on the Deepawali day itself after the Pooja as we were having Sunder Kand path in our home the following day. Though there were many devotees who were eager to invite Baba’s Padukas, but with Baba’s Blessings they accepted my request to bring Baba’s Padukas in our home after the Pooja on Deepawali day. After a week, we came to know that due to solar eclipse, falling on the Deepawali day they have postponed the Paduka Pooja and no other date was yet decided for the same. I was very sad to know this. Only Sai Baba knows His Leela. As per Baba’s blessing, after a week they informed me that Paduka Pooja will now be held on January 1st 2015 and we can invite Padukas in our home the same day. I was thrilled to know that as January 1st not just being a new year’s day is also my husbands’ birthday. What better present we could have gotten than having Baba come into our home. On the 1st January morning, we reached the venue for the Pooja and me and my husband were the first ones to perform Paduka Pooja and in the evening Baba and Baba’s Padukas blessed our home. May Baba shower His blessings on all His devotees. Jai Sainath, Om Sai Ram.
Anonymous Devotee from UAE says: I would like to share my experience when I had recently been to Shirdi in the Month of November end. Being to Shirdi is a big Miracle of my life. I never thought my Sai will call me to His house, His place so soon. This is my second experience I am posting here. Journey to Shirdi from Mangalore was really so nice. I did not feel even little bit of tiredness. As we stepped into the beautiful Shirdi, I was so happy I can’t explain. Before going to Shirdi, I was very scared that we may not get good Darshan, may be we have to rush in hurry because so many devotees come for Darshan. But Baba is so kind, when we reached Shirdi in the night around 9, we did not get VIP pass, so hotel people told us to go for Darshan and come. When we went, for our surprise, there was no rush at all. We had so blissful Darshan, i offered shawl, flowers, sweets and I made my little daughter touch the Samadhi of Baba. We came back to hotel. It was so beautiful Darshan. Then next day morning around 4, we went for Aarti in VIP Darshan. I can’t explain in words that Darshan I had. When Aarti was going on I literally cried. I could not control my eyes. I could not believe that I was standing in front of Sai Baba. He was smiling and giving His blessing to all His children. I still cannot forget that face of Sai Baba. I want to thank Baba for calling us to Shiridi.
Another Miracle of Baba is, here in UAE windows doesn’t have grills and there are so many incidents when kids fell from windows. Yesterday, it was very cold inside the bedroom so I thought I will open the window for sometime so that the sunlight comes inside. Then I forgot and went down to bring my big daughter from school. After having lunch, me and my big daughter were watching movie. My small daughter 3 year old told that she will sleep and went to bedroom. I had forgotten about the window. Suddenly, I remembered, I had opened the window and I forgot. If I would not rush, my small daughter would be in danger. I still get goose bumps when I think of it. That was Sai Baba only, Who on time remembered me about the window. Otherwise my daughter would really peep out the window. Thank You Sai. This shows that Sai Baba is always with us. He never leaves His kids alone anywhere they go. I don’t get words to say thanks to Sai. Love You Sai Baba. Om Sai Ram.
Anonymous Devotee from India says: I am a Sai devotee from past 20 years. I have experienced so many Miracles. This is the one which i realised Baba is there with me. Hetal ji thanks for your support in increasing the fate by reading all the devotes experience. As it’s my marriage age, my parents are looking for proposals, every proposal which i liked, would be cancelled. One reason for cancellation is Kundali mismatch. When i was very young, my parents went to some Pandit. As per Kundali, my first marriage will broke due to any reason. My parents were tensed. All of sudden, one proposal got settled within 15 days. We did not know about their family completely. My mother used to feel so tensed by seeing their behaviour. Engagement date was fixed. Before leaving to the place, i was in dilemma to wear Baba’s silver ring, because i was wearing gold, only Baba’s ring was silver. I left from my home and was about to wear the sandals. Then i rushed into the room and i wear the Baba’s ring and said, Baba whatever it may be, i will wear Your ring always.
I was bit tensed inside by observing that guys behaviour in the function hall, but i did not talk with any one regarding this. I myself started to adjust. When we use to talk on phone, i came to know that it’s bit tough to adjust with him, and finally engagement got broken. It was very tough situation in my life. I was not able to come out side for some days. Later i come up with so many difficulties. From that day onwards, i stopped worshipping Baba. I asked Your help, but You played with me. I use to ask so many question to Him. Later after 4 years, one of my friend’s aunt gave Baba’s book and asked me to read. I said her, i am not interested to read. She explained, Baba will do all these for our sake only, just have patience. Then i started praying. I decided from that day, whatever happen may be good are bad, i won’t stop believing Him. Now i am working as a Software engineer, roaming around. Thanks to Baba to be a part of my life. I am asking Baba, please bless me with good husband and family. My parents are so much worrying about this. Now good matches are not fixing, what has Baba planned for me i don’t know. Please Baba bless me. Om Sai Ram.
Anonymous Devotee from India says: Om Sai Ram. I am a devotee of Sai Baba for the last 17 years. I don’t see Him as a God. I feel Him as a Mother, Father, Brother, Sister and a Good Friend. I can feel Baba’s Presence everywhere. I follow each and every rule of Baba, like giving food to hungry, clothes to poor people. Thanks a lot to the team to make the devotees feel blessed by reading these Miracles. I feel this site as Sai Satcharitra. I want to share my experience, where Baba blessed me in my dream. Once I had a dream that I was massaging Baba’s Holy Feet and He was smiling at me. Baba’s face was fair and His lips were red like a red rose petal. He was smiling at me looking into my eyes. When I was massaging Baba’s Holy Feet, He took my hand to His Hands massaging me in return the way Guru and Pupil serving. In the dream only, I was crying in a joy.
Then I opened my eyes and realized it was a dream. Tears rolled from my eyes. It was 4’o clock in the morning. I felt very proud and great to be touched by Baba’s Holy Hands. I got up and took bath to perform Pooja. After performing Pooja, I prayed and thanked Baba for blessing me in my dream. I randomly opened Sai Satcharitra book. I couldn’t believe myself seeing the page and cried from bottom of my heart. There was written about Khaparde’s wife. In the same way Baba massaged her hand and she was massaging Baba’s Lotus Feet. I just felt “Am I Khaparde’s wife in the last birth? Such a great devotee of Baba?” There Baba advices her to recite “Raja Ram” mantra which will give peace in her life. From that moment, I keep reciting the mantra Sai advised to Khaparde’s wife. Later I read one more Sai Satcharitra Book from my friend. There also Baba says about Khaparde’s wife that she will take birth as a Brahmin. Yes, May be I am that Brahmin girl. Please Baba, Keep us protected and guide us in good way. Om Sai Ram.
Sai Sister Neha from India says: I have experienced lots of Sai Baba’s Mercy in my life. I am going to share now one of the recent experiences where it is proved that Baba is always by my side. Because of Sai Baba’s blessing, I have a beautiful daughter Vansshika. Here comes the Miracle – We are 3 sisters and 1 brother. All of us are married except for my elder sister. We were worried for her as we were not able to find a suitable match for her. Whenever we thought that we got a good guy for her we were disappointed with the boy for some reason or the other. This was Sai’s way of asking us to be patient. Last year in May, we got a proposal for her and within one week, she was engaged. The marriage date was fixed for January 2015. The marriage budget was too high and we were not able to afford it. When we tried for private loan it was for 10% interest every month which was too much for us. We were in dilemma that how the marriage is going to happen. I had some problems with my credit report so I was not able to get 1 lakh loan. Whenever I applied for it, it was rejected. We were losing patience as we were coming close to date. Then Sai Baba showed me the way. I started doing weekly Parayan (completing Sai Satcharitra in 7 days). When 1st week was completed, I got news that my loan could be done by another bank. Again for some reason processing was taking time. In 2nd week the file was rejected. But I did not lose hope. I was continuously doing Parayan. I and my loan agent went to meet bank official and we came to know it was because of an error so we tried to resolve the issue. It took 2 weeks but the issue was resolved. Finally my loan was passed and I got cash for my sister’s marriage. This was possible only because of Sai Baba. Thank You so much for guiding me and helping me and making my sister’s wedding day a grand success. Om Sai Ram!
Anonymous Devotee from India says: Sai ram. I consider myself as Baba’s Daughter but with every unfolding day of my life I feel He has not taken me under His folds. I am scared to live in this world as my sufferings have no end. I feel as if I have no right left to be happy and my life is a constant failure. My Son suffers from permanent hearing loss due to difficult birth. I lost my job after he was born. My husband does not have permanent job, every month we suffer from huge monetarily losses, like this month around 3 lakh. I am pleading before Baba since my son is born. I ask questions in question answer site and He always gives positive answers but when the time comes He is not there. Am I doing something wrong? How can I get His care towards me and my family. We do not want much, just His Hand always over our heads, but He is not listening to that too. It’s been more than two years of suffering. How much patience can I show. After every tragedy and loss I cry before Him but He is not affected. How can I know He has taken us under His fold and one day things will start getting better? Baba You know, I have no one, not even parents with whom I can share or rely on. I feel helpless. When I wake up every morning, I am scared that what’s coming next? I can’t even end my life as my son needs me. I can also not live in this fear and unhappiness. Please help us Sai.
