Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles in this Post:
Sai Sister Sanjukta from India says: I am from Mumbai originally, now settled in Kolkata, post marriage. I am an ardent devotee of our Baba since childhood. I love Him a lot, a lot, a lot. Of course like one of you reading this blog at the moment. Thank you Hetal ji and your team for helping devotees like us feel one in this common forum and talk about our experiences. I have written earlier in this site as:
1. Story Of Rs. 10/- By The Grace Of Sadguru Shri Shirdi Saibaba
2. Saibaba Loves His Stories Told
3. My Sai’s UDI Reaches Me
Shri Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai! Dear Baba, Please help me draft this. Ok, for a very long time, my husband and I had a particular desire, surrounding my husband. Day and night we would pray for it. On a particular day, something prompted me to write down the desire in a dairy and keep it in front of my Sainath at home. When I say something prompted me, let me tell you, usually I can hear Sai talking to me and give me certain instructions and yes, it does turn out verbatim each time I follow it. It is now a ritual, in fact, I have promised Sai that whenever I feel an intuition, it is in fact Sai talking to me and that I would follow the instruction blindly. You would know what I am saying perhaps, if you would have followed my earlier posts. So, on 29-Jul-2014, I wrote my wish in a dairy and placed it near Sai. Alongside, I mentioned, if the wish comes true, my husband, Abhishek would offer 11 coconuts to Shibpur Sai Baba. I know not how Shibpur Sai Baba’s Name got drafted, but there it was. There are other Sai Temples close to my house, but here, Shibpur Sai Baba’s Name got drafted. Yes, I did visit Shibpur earlier. It is actually very far from my house, a 4-5hrs car drive. And yes, the wish came true!
Now, it’s my turn to fulfil the desire as soon as possible. So, I turned to my husband as I mentioned he would offer the coconuts. Unfortunately, he had a busy schedule. He could not go. Instead, he called my Sister-in-law’s to join me to Shibpur and told me to do the needful of the offerings. Now, this is where we were wrong! Terribly wrong! And I knew, we were doing a mistake. My inner voice, my Sai’s voice kept telling me to urge my husband to fulfil the vow I had taken. I requested him. But he couldn’t, he had an important work. The same work which Baba gifted him. When I started for Shibpur, I felt the voice tell me, sorry but the wish which was fulfilled after our sincere prayers would have to be taken back. I went to Shibpur. I offered the coconuts on behalf of my husband and returned home. But within the same week, the wish was taken back by Baba. We got upset to the core. I told my husband we erred by not having fulfilled the promise given to Baba. When He fulfilled our wish in a jiffy upon writing and mentioning about Shibpur Sai, what made us not fulfil the vow given to Him? Since, Shibpur is very far, we always need to have a planned trip. I once again prayed before my Sai to fulfil the wish and that my husband would visit Shibpur and offer 11 coconuts. Nothing happened. Several months passed. We lived only on hopes.
Now, about Shibpur Sai Baba, I would call Him Shirdi Shibpur Baba, My Baba! I am sure, by now, devotees must have read the immense Miracles of Shibpur Sai Baba. Oh yes! Miracles I must say! That Baba is living, you can see in His eye. You can see His eye twinkling. You would feel Him. He is so real. Along with Shibpur Baba, Swami Samarth ji’s Murti is also equally live. Shibpur Sai Temple has 2 Sai Murtis. One of them is made of white marble, equally as big as Shirdi’s Idol. The other Murti is the one you can meditate upon. You can talk to Him. You can feel Him. He listens. He listens. He listens to you. He sits in a small room, waiting for His devotees to come to Him. Shibpur is a very remote village in West Bengal, Nadia District. The temple is still very-very-very-rather extremely interior inside the village. Presence of Sai Baba in an interior village as remote as Shibpur is itself a Miracle. He has come here through a dream, i.e. He has self incarnated Himself here. The fame of Sai Baba, only in recent times have become somewhat evident in Kolkata, West Bengal and to have this temple since 1999 (The year He had appeared on a dream of the Temple’s proprietor) is in itself a very big miracle. It’s a tiny and very remote village. People in West Bengal are ardent Bhaktas of Goddess Kali and you would find Goddess Kali’s Temple, Shiva Temple in every nook and corner. But Sai Baba’s Temple is a rare find. Yet, here, in this remote, interior, small village of Shibpur, Baba chose to stay.
Coming back on my experience, on the beginning of January 2015, as per ritual, we visited Shirdi to seek His blessings for a good start in 2015 and yet presented our desire. Upon returning Kolkata, my husband, on his own accord told me of his desire to visit Shibpur as I too have been feeling the same that unless he visits Shibpur and offer coconuts with his own hands, our desire shall not be fulfilled. We visited. It was 31st January 2015. I sat near Shirdi Shibpur Baba and cried. I felt Him move some flowers. I felt He move His lips. I felt His whole body react. My husband too prayed. We begged for forgiveness for his earlier folly of not coming down his own to fulfil the vow that I had taken to Baba. He offered the coconuts. We returned home with a clean heart and me specially that of a fresh start. I felt Baba tell me to write in the Sai dairy that I had purchased from Shirdi of my desires. I went to the date 01 Feb 2015. I wrote everything that I could think of including our earlier, still ongoing and unfulfilled desire. I mentioned this time that if the wish fulfils, I will myself go to Shibpur. On 5th February 2015, Thursday, our wish Fulfilled. Within 4 days of visiting Shibpur.
Today, I am writing this on Valentine’s Day 14th February 2015, after having met my Valentine at Shibpur and offering Him a million thanks for having fulfilled our long pending wish so smoothly. This reminds me, Sai Baba never liked an unfulfilled promise as stated in Shri Sai Satcharitra and always reminded His devotees of their unfulfilled promises, including Shama, whose mother had promised Saptashringi Goddess silver breasts if her wish got fulfilled which was finally fulfilled by Shama who was undergoing bad phase until he fulfilled his mother’s vow of visiting Saptashringi Goddess’s temple, as directed by Baba. Om Sai Ram! May Baba bless all His devotees. I love You Baba. Thank You for helping me draft this.
Sai Sister Vijaya from US says: Om Sai Sri Sai Jaya Jaya Sai. I am a Sai devotee. I would like to share couple of my experiences of Sai Leela. We recently visited India. I am originally very nervous about flight journey always and praying Sai to give me courage to visit India and spend some time with my parents, as they were recovering from severe health problems. I carried Baba’s Photo and Book with me praying to give me strength to overcome my nervousness for flight journey. To His Miraculous blessings, I could able to complete flight journey with no issues, visited my parents and came back to US with no issues. This is really because of Baba’s blessings only. Because, in our earlier visit to India, my nervousness to flight journey caused our family to request the flight attendants to return the flight back to the airport just before it is taking off from runway. That incident stuck in my mind and I kept postponing to visit my parents in India. But with Baba’s Grace, I could able to get strength this time and able to visit my parents in India.
I would also like to share another Baba Leela during same the visit to India. We had to take an overnight train at 8 pm to go to a city from where we have to catch the flight back to US on the next day. It was a very hot and dry day and we planned to start at 6 pm from home as it only takes 30 minutes maximum to the train station by car. All of a sudden at 5.30 pm, it started raining with thunders and it poured like a storm until 6 pm and cleared. We packed our baggage and started as planned at 6 pm by car to the station. As we almost reached to a point from where the station is just 10 mints away, there was traffic jam due to the sudden down poured rain with thunders earlier, some trees were fallen on road and also the roads near by train station are all flooded. There was heavy traffic jam due to this and we were stuck in the traffic. It was already 7.20 pm and we were scared of missing the train. If we miss that train, then we have to make arrangements to hire a taxi to the city in order to catch the flight next day and by road it takes more than 18 hours. It also costs a lot and in-convenience to my mother-in-law who is 85 years old and was travelling with us. I was so worried. Then my car driver wanted to take us to station using some other back roads which he said it only takes 15 minutes to station from where we were stuck in the traffic. Somehow he made way and took some other road and as we passed further, we learned that road is also jammed with traffic due to flooded rain water and some fallen tree ahead. The traffic was so chaos that everybody was in rush driving all directions jamming the roads further.
I was so tensed that we are going to miss the train and also the flight next day. I was just praying Baba to somehow bless us in this difficult situation. My driver somehow reversed the car in the traffic jam and took the same route we left earlier and got to the station. I know we missed the train, but I just want to go to station and then plan what to do next. It was already 9 pm when we reached station. To Baba’s grace, we were told that the train is still there on the platform. Now, another challenge. My mother-in-law needs a wheel chair to go up to our reservation compartment which was at the other end of the station just behind the engine. When we parked the car, there was no wheel chair readily available. I was praying Baba and worried that even though the train is there by the time we reached so lately, but still we have to find a wheel chair and doubting what if the train leaves by the time we find wheel chair and reach to the far end of the platform with my mother-in law. Again Baba’s blessings poured on us, a porter suddenly found a wheel chair and we ran on the platform with my mother-in-law in the wheel chair. The platform was so slippery due to rain and my 12 old son was also running with the porter along with his grandma in wheel chair. By Baba’s grace, we could able to catch the train and the train started after we put all of our baggage. Finally we could able to catch the flight the next day as planned. This was only possible truly because of Baba’s Leela only. Om Shri Samartha Sadguru Sainath Ki Jai.
Anonymous Devotee from UK says: I was always a believer in Shirdi Sai and this happened day after my daughter was born. I was in a hospital in London. Immediately after being delivered my daughter, she was shifted to NICU as she had a suspected collapse of lungs and so had breathing problems. I was also told that she might have a life threatening condition and was on antibiotics and so was put on IV. My heart broke the first time I saw her in the NICU unit, attached to all these machines and needles in her tiny arms and hands. As no one was allowed into the maternity wards other than a few hours of visiting hours, I had to go see her by myself a few blocks away. I was totally depressed as I couldn’t physically and mentally make those trips to the NICU by myself. I felt really sad and alone and very depressed. A couple of days afterwards I visited my daughter again in the NICU and was hoping for some good news. But the doctor said her lungs were ok but the condition hasn’t changed and we were expected to stay for a week at least as her course of antibiotics were to be continued for a week. I went back to my ward, just lied down and started crying.
I was talking to Baba in my head and said “I am not fit enough to walk and go see her and can’t see her in that state and make me physically sick, You have to help her”. Then suddenly, I was angry ” You did this to her and now You fix this, I am not sure how but this pain needs to stop now and give me all the pain but just take it away from that innocent child”. This thought just filled me with agony and tears started pouring down my face. Just then a nurse walked in. I couldn’t look into her face directly as I was embarrassed and quickly wiped my tears. This nurse walked up to me and asked if I was alright and she wasn’t my regular nurse. This nurse said she was on her usual rounds so I smiled and said hello and told her I was ok. She asked me where the baby was and I said in NICU, it was strange as she was taking all this time to talk to me. She asked me where I was from originally and I said India and the first thing she asked me was do you know Shirdi Sai Baba. I was shocked as I was talking to Sai in my head just then and then she asked me if I believed in Him and I instantly said yes and was very happy to speak to her though there were no Miracles. But soon, she said she finished a Sai Vrat and asked if I mind if she gave me Prasad and a Sai book, I said no still shocked. She said she would leave it in my bag and asked me to take it myself and distribute when I went home and had a bath for various reasons. I said ok and thanked her.
I had never seen her previous couple of days while I was there. I thought God sent me His blessings to stay strong and was prepared for any circumstances and thought it was all for the good. This happened at around 10 am and I saw my little one at around 8 am. The doctor came up to me at 2 pm and said that my daughters blood results have come back negative now and she can go home the next day. I was overjoyed and cried with joy. I couldn’t thank Sai Baba enough and pray enough. And just after 5 pm during visiting hours the doctor came back again to say she was doing very well and she could be taken home that evening instead and so she had all her checks and we went home at 8 pm that evening with a perfectly healthy beautiful baby. I cannot thank Him enough and i am forever in debt to Sai and I now always thank Him in my prayers and never question His love for me. He is my Holy Father, who takes very good care of me and my needs! Sai Ram!
Anonymous Devotee from USA says: First of all, my sincere gratitude to the group who is maintaining this blog. I feel relaxed and more confident, whenever I read devotees experiences on this blog. This is the third time, I am posting my experience. There were many instances I felt like Baba is with me and He is constantly watching me. I am posting my another recent experience. This experience is about how Baba helped me in passing my exam and even before I got results, He told me the results through another devotee. Experience of that devotee is on this link: Baba Corrected My Paper And Passed Me In My Exam
Last semester, I was preparing for one exam. I spent a lot of time for studying. As a daily practice, I read devotees experiences and many devotees mentioned about Question and Answer Link. I thought I should also try this link, so I asked Baba whether I will pass the examination. I got an answer that “You will pass the examination and help comes from the south”. I was stunned seeing the answer. I also started Sai Satcharitra Saptah but couldn’t finish it in a week because of job, studying etc. Few health problems bothered me a lot when I was in exam hall but I was sure I will pass because Baba said so. When I got the results, I was so devastated because I did not pass. I felt sad and thought that I did not pass because I did not finish Sai Satcharitra in a week and also because of past karmas. Baba was testing me but I did not lose faith and hope so I started studying for next semester. One of my friend suggested me to take one course, which is very helpful to pass the exam so I took the course. This friend lives on the south side of my neighbourhood so i got first indication that help came from south.
Three weeks before my exam, I started Sai Satcharitra Saptah and with Baba’s blessings I finished it, which gave me lots of confidence. I prayed Baba and asked Him to stay with me in the exam hall and also asked Him that I need to know that He is with me. When I was in exam hall, I was writing all the answers and at the same time looking for an indication that He is with me but I did not see His Photo or any sort of indication. At the end of the exam, I realized that my health condition did not bother me at all during the entire time I was in the hall so I got clear indication from Baba that He is with me in fact He is inside me and why am I looking elsewhere. Baba dwells in all the devotees’ hearts. I also passed the exam this time with Baba’s Grace. Before my exam, when I was reading experiences on this blog, I read one devotees experience, which gave me lots of strength. Baba answers to devotees through another devotee. Even I had similar experience like scrolling down to see the result pass, when I saw the results, first thing I did was said thanks to Baba. My experience and this devotees experience match word to word and the only difference is I am an engineer and that devotee is a doctor. Satchidhanandha Sadguru Sai Baba Ki Jai.
Anonymous Devotee from US says: Hi Hetal ji, I live in USA with my husband and 2 year old daughter. I greatly appreciate your service to the society. I have submitted my experience below. Reading Sai Baba experiences bring more faith and energy. I have numerous experiences with Shirdi Sai Baba. I am sharing the most recent experience. We live in northern part of USA in a very cold place. Winters are very severe here. My husband works here on H1 visa and his green card is under process, so we don’t have much options to move to a different company. But I suffer from severe sinus because of this weather. Myself and my husband did Satcharitra Parayan 2 months back. After we finished the Parayan, I got a dream. The dream was very simple but the message was miraculous.
I am from southern part of Tamilnadu. I have never travelled to north India. In that dream, I was in my native place. I was sitting in a Temple. My neighbour aunty came there, she applied Udi on my forehead and she told me it’s Shibpur Sai Baba Udi and it is very powerful. Also I heard people saying there is a Baba shrine also in this Temple. But when I looked at that shrine it had Baba’s seat and frame but Baba was missing. So that was my dream. I never heard of this place Shibpur before. I browsed online and I was very much surprised to find that there is a place called Shibpur and a Baba temple is built there recently. I got the contact details of the temple priest Amith ji and informed him about this dream. He said it was Baba, who came in the form of that aunty and applied Udi. I felt very happy and very blessed and then I realised why Baba was missing in that shrine (Because He came in the form of that aunty). Amith ji sent us the Udi. After we started applying it, my husband got interview call from the same company different branch from a place in south USA where weather is good. Today by Baba’s grace, he had received the offer letter. Baba’s Leelas are amazing. Thank You so much Baba, we are ever indebted and grateful to You. Please be with us all the time.
Anonymous Devotee from India says: First Of all Jai Sai Ram. Dear Hetal ji thanks a lot for your wonderful contribution for this site. It feels that someone is there with whom we can share all the things related to our Sai Baba ji. I want to share 2 experiences here. I thank Baba as He came in my life in 2006, when i got a chance to visit Shirdi with my friends on college trip. Actually our trip was for 12 days and we reached the Shirdi on 4th day. Due to lots of shouting on the trip, my voice was badly chocked at that day and doctors advised me to avoid speaking. But when we were standing in line to take Darshan of Baba ji, then suddenly i started to do (Jai Karas of Baba ji) and all the people there also started with me. I don’t know how i could do this as my voice was badly chocked. After 2 hours, we got the Darshan of Baba ji and my friends were going out from the Temple. But when i got the Darshan and just going out from the Temple then suddenly an uncle came to me and asked, his exacts words were, “Beta, Baba ji ka Aashirwad ni loge” (Beta, Don’t you take blessings of Baba Ji). I was really shocked. Then he gave me a bookey of lovely flowers from the Baba’s Feet. I felt blessed and full of joy as none of my friends have got this.
My another experience is, It happened on 26 December 2014, on my birthday. As from last 4 years, on every birthday, i got statue of Baba ji from one of my office colleague. But prior to recent birthday, i resigned from that job and got new job. I want Baba’s blessings on this birthday also but also thinking that how it will be possible. But Baba does not leave His devotees. So miracle happened on birthday evening. I even did not get only statue, but full wooden Mandir of Baba ji from my new office colleague. I felt very happy and blessed. It’s just because who has faith in Sai Baba, his prayers will never go unanswered. Sadguru Sai Nath Maharaj Ki Jai.
