Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
Anonymous Devotee from US says: Koti Koti Pranam at the Lotus Feet of Baba Ji, Om Sai Ram to all the fellow Sai Devotees, and finally, Koti Koti Pranam to Hetal Ji and her team, again, for keeping this blog, a modern day online version of Sai Satcharitra, up and running. My recent experiences with Baba ji are:
Admission Of My Son In UC Berkeley: Our son got admission into UC Berkeley that too in Computer Science with the kind blessings of our beloved Baba Ji. This was a Miracle considering his SAT scores and not doing any internship during the summer after he completed his junior year (XIth grade). His GPA and AP scores were above average though. Although, Baba Ji did blessed him with a admission at Purdue University in Engineering quite early in December of 2014, while he was still completing his senior year (XIIth grade), and relieved us from the anxiety as typically in US the undergrad schools, by and large, start sending admission offers in Feb 2015 only for the sessions starting in Aug 2015 (aka fall admissions). We are native of California (CA) and our son grew up and did his entire schooling in CA with the exception of X11th grade, which he has to do from American School of Dubai as I got transferred from CA to our Dubai office with the blessings of our beloved Baba Ji. So, he was more interested in University of California (UC) Los Angeles (UCLA) or UC San Diego (UCSD) or UC Berkeley (UCB). Baba Ji blessed him with admission in UC San Diego but he didn’t get into engineering and he didn’t get any offer from UCLA at all, which he thought would get it. We were tensed a little bit, even though he already had secured admission in Purdue, because we really wanted him to be in California. My son was waiting to hear from UC Berkeley anxiously. UC Berkeley being nation’s one of the elite school, we parents were less hopeful considering he didn’t get UCLA and barely got UCSD. But, Baba ji did the miracle and got him his wish and blessed us to be a proud parents of a child who will be starting his under graduation in Computer Science at UCB, which is one of the shrine for computer science programs and located near to the silicon valley. Om Sai, Shri Sai, Jai Jai Sai! Koti Koti Pranam at His Lotus Feet! We now pray to Baba Ji to take our son under His wings and be His Parent, Friend, Guide and lead him for rest of his life so that he eventually becomes an ardent devotee of Baba Ji‘s right from this young age.
Getting Upgrade To Business Class In Emirates Airline: I was travelling to Los Angeles from Dubai for company business. As per company travel policy, people in my position are allowed to fly only economy class during business trips. This is a direct 15.5 hours flight and before taking this trip, I flew back and forth from Dubai to Johannesburg which were 8 hours duration each side. As I am Gold Status, due to frequent flying, I always try to get a complimentary business class upgrade which is provided when economy class is sold out. It is always difficult to get a complimentary biz class upgrade in Emirates Airline because either there remain few seats in Economy class or Business class is completely sold out. So this time before leaving home to fly to Los Angeles, I prayed to Baba Ji to do miracle and get me a complimentary upgrade to Business Class. While on the way to the Airport, in a taxi, I was singing Kakad Aarti silently and with my eye closed, as it is almost 30 minutes drive from my to the airport, I felt that I am already flying in business class. When I got into the Airport and during the Check-in process I asked the person behind the counter, as usual, how full the flight is and is there an opportunity to get complimentary upgrade and to my wonder the person said that flight is full, economy class is oversold but business class is also almost sold out and I was again dejected. She said wait, let me make few calls and try to get you bumped up in biz class. She made few calls and then said that you are lucky and printed me out the business class boarding pass. I was delighted and said Thank You and Koti Koti Pranam to Baba Ji in my heart. I, finally, flew business class all the way from Dubai to Los Angeles and had very stress free travel all the way and slept comfortably in the flight on a lie-flat business class seat and enjoyed premium meals and beverages. When I landed at Los Angeles airport neither I was tired nor stressed but very fresh and ready to go to office. A very very sweet Leela of our dear Baba Ji! Om Sai, Shri Sai, Jai Jai Sai! Koti Koti Pranam at His Lotus Feet!
Baba Ji Helps Win The Court Case: As mentioned above that we moved to Dubai, due to company transfer, so we put our house in San Diego on rent and it got rented immediately with the blessings of Baba Ji. We did hire a property management company to manage our house, attend to Tenants needs, collect rent, etc. Tenants moved in Jul 27th 2014 and signed 1 year lease. In Sep 2014 the property management company informed us, we were in Dubai, that tenants are unhappy and want to exit from the lease including they are being irrational. We didn’t want any headaches and thus allowed the tenants to break the lease without any penalty, etc. Tenants left by Oct 1st and we moved on. In March 2015, during my business trip to Los Angeles, I came to know about a law suit that was filed against me and the property management company by this tenant who broke the lease and vacated the house on Oct 1st 2014, it was shocking. The tenants were claiming rent abatement citing house habitability and safety issues leading to stressful living for 3 months, rental deposit wasn’t paid back to them, etc. I called my property management company to get the understanding of this case, as they were also a co-defendant along with me in this law suit, and guess what this property management company refuse to pick up the phone and started sending me bullying emails saying it’s all my fault. I was now completely confused and wondering what is happening here. I reached out to couple of my friends and a lawyer friend and got some encouraging advise and suggestions. As this case was filed by the petitioners in a Small Claim Court, therefore, neither petitioner nor the defendant are allowed to bring in lawyer and are supposed to come prepared with all documents and evidences to support their claim or in their defense and present to the judge who in turn will ask question and communicate the final judgment.
With the help of Baba Ji blessings, I started documenting my defense including supporting evidences. They were reviewed by my friends. My court date was set on a Thursday and I had a belief that Baba Ji will surely help me defend me and would get the judgment in my favour. I started a week long Parayan of Sri Sat Charitra and Sri Guru Charitra, simultaneously, just a week before the court date and concluded both the Parayan a day before the court date. On the court date, which was Thursday, I kept fast, carried Sai Satcharitra along with other documents to the court. Since the hearing was schedule for morning, so on the way to court, I sang Kakad Aarti completely. While waiting for our case in the court, I was holding Shri Sai Sat Charitra in my hand and reading chapter 11. Also, I was reading the experiences on this blog for that day to hold my nerves and not thinking too much about the case. When our case started, we got seated waiting for the Judge to appear, I prayed to Baba Ji saying that now You take over, anything I say in my defense shall be Your words. As soon as Judge arrived, it was pleasant surprise that Judge face had resemblances of our dear Baba Ji face, in particular the beard, and I felt very happy and confident. Judge after going through his tasks list, announced that our case is transferred to the other room and the other Judge as well. I was heartbroken.
Anyway, we moved to the new room and waited for the new Judge to show up. When he showed up, he also had some resemblances to Baba Ji beard, I was again happy. Judge went through the petitioner file first and then defense file, he asked for some clarifications and make some notes and then asked petitioner first to put forward their side and after that I spoke about our defense. Unfortunately, our defense file was couple of pages, very little in compare to Petitioner file, but very concise though. Petitioner file was a very thick one with lots of data, photo graphs of my house, etc. It was intimidating but I had confidence in Baba ji that he will do the right thing and whatever the outcome will be his wish and shall embrace it accordingly without any qualm. Judge made the notes after hearing from both sides and mentioned that the court will communicate final decision through mail, this was unusual though because I was told in small courts the case is decided then and there. Anyway, we left the court without any outcome and with the apprehension that we may lose the case and would have shell down some money if not the full ten thousand dollars. I was with my wife and we decided then will not discuss this any more so that we don’t speculate the outcome make ourselves consumed with it and allow Baba ji to his job. Two days later mail came from the court and Baba ji did His job by showering His blessings and performing miracle. We won the case and didn’t have to pay any single penny! Om Sai, Shri Sai, Jai Jai Sai, Koti Koti Pranam at His Lotus Feet, the residence of all of us.
Anonymous Devotee from Australia says: Om Sai Ram to all Baba’s devotees. May Baba shower His blessings and miracles on all of you. Baba took me in His loving care five years back. Since then my faith in Baba has strengthened with every hardship i have faced in life. I also know that once Baba enters your life He can never ever leave you, though we may feel sometimes in our hard times that Baba has left us but it is not possible at all. He is always there worried for us. Now, today I want to share something that has made my faith in Baba hundred times stronger. I live outside India. Every Thursday i go to Baba’s Temple. I meet my friends and Baba’s other devotees there. I used to hear lot of devotees who have been to Shirdi and their experiences. Some devotees waited years to be called by Baba to Shirdi. In my heart, i really wanted to go to meet Baba in Shirdi. Not to ask for anything but to thank Him for everything that He did for me even though i live so far from India. I really wanted to meet this Fakir. But i did not consider myself that lucky. Also because my husband is not Baba’s devotee so i wasn’t sure if he will agree to take me to Shirdi or not. I felt may be i am not a good human being. May be i need to do more good deeds/good karmas to be able to meet Baba. Because Baba never called me and who knows how long will i have to wait to be called to Shirdi. We all know that no one can visit Shirdi without Baba’s consent.
But last month Baba did the biggest Miracle. He fully planned my Shirdi trip. Everything happened so suddenly and smoothly and without any obstacle. We had only two weeks time to book tickets. So it was hard to get booking on a good airline and cheap tickets. But ultimately Baba did that too. We got booking on our preferred airline and that too at very reasonable price. Not only that, but the booking dates fell on Thursday even the return flight was on Thursday and we landed on Friday which was Gurupurnima day. I was thrilled and felt very confident that Ok so Baba is planning everything. Before we booked tickets, one night i got a very clear dream that someone is telling me that your Shirdi trip is fully confirmed and i felt Baba’s strong presence and felt absolutely divine. We reached India and finally we booked our trip to Shirdi. I cannot explain how ecstatic i was feeling thinking that i will be meeting Baba soon. I couldn’t believe that i am in Shirdi. I loved Shirdi’s land, air everything. It was something unimaginable for me. I had this strong desire to attend Baba’s Aarti on Thursday somehow.
We reached Shirdi on Wednesday. But we could get only quick Darshan, not Aarti. I felt bit sad inside. But then i thought may be only lucky people who have good karmas get Baba’s Aarti. But deep down inside my heart, i knew Baba won’t disappoint me after calling me to Shirdi from so far. And there you go, next day was Thursday and we managed to get NRI passes for Aarti and that too my favourite Aarti ‘Shej Aarti’ And that was the moment that i felt extremely divine and felt Baba’s strong presence. I felt Baba is alive there. I was standing right in front near Baba’s statue. I literally had tears of joy in my eyes. Thinking that finally i got Thursday Aarti and that too Shej Aarti. I thanked Baba and prayed for my near dear ones and unhappy souls. It was absolutely divine experience. Due to word limit, i haven’t included lot of Leelas that Baba did while i was in Shirdi, May be next time. May Baba bless you all. Trust Baba. You can doubt Baba but He can never. Baba bless you all.
Anonymous Devotee from India says: Om Sai Ram. I am a Sai devotee since 5 years. He is always with me and helped me in every situation. At first i didn’t completely surrender to Baba but as time goes on, i have got full faith in Baba and from that time i could see His Miracles and experience Sai’s blessings. I completed my B.tech in 2012 and i got selected in a small company through campus placement but they haven’t called for so many days so i started preparing for bank exams. Without any coaching, i have prepared at home and wrote the exam in the same year and got qualified and finally joined in a bank. This couldn’t happen without Baba’s blessings as my friends who started preparing for bank exams with coaching couldn’t qualify but i got qualified. From then onwards, my faith on Baba got increased. I got posted in a rural area where i don’t know anything but with Baba’s grace, i could find a nice room in that village itself beside the bank where all people treated me as their daughter. I am so happy for that and my mother is also happy for that. In my office, all my colleagues were friendly but i have faced some problems because of my innocence that thinking everyone will be good. At last, i got transfer to my home zone which i have been waiting since 6 months but from my home it was a long journey to reach that branch that it will take 2 hours.
Before the day of reporting in my new branch, i got call from union member where he told not to join in that branch as he will take me to the zonal office and give me nearest branch. But i am totally tensed as the manager said that trusting me he had relieved two employees on the day that i had relieved from my old branch. He told me to report compulsorily on that particular day. But my union leader told not to join and told that to believe him as he told that you are like my daughter, i don’t like you to be posted in that farthest and heavy branch. So i thought of informing manager that due to some health problem, i want leave for one day but in my mind i want to report as first day leave creates bad impression and i don’t want to be like that as i am very nervous that how the staff will receive me and how can i mingle with them. I have complete trust in Baba that He will help me. On the day of reporting, same union leader told me to go and report since there is requirement of staff in that branch and he will try in one or two months for me to get nearest branch so i reported on that day and the manager told me to handle cash counter as he got relieved. I don’t have much experience because i used to do SB counter in my previous branch, but with Baba’s Grace, i have successfully handled cash counter and all the staff including manager told that i have excellently done my job because it’s my first day and that too after a holiday, branch was too rush and i have cleared fast without any problem. I am so happy that i told Baba i will my write my experience. My manager have called to my previous branch assistant manager and told that they have sent him an excellent employee. I am very very happy that all staff were so friendly and manager treats me like his daughter. Thank You Baba. Thank You so much for Your wonderful blessings and my heart and soul Baba. Please do not leave my hand. I completely surrender unto Your Lotus Feet. Baba, today i have started Nava Guruvar Vrat, please help me to complete without any problems and also fulfil my wishes Baba. Thank You so much Sai Maa for helping me to write this experience. I hope that i will write so many experiences as soon as possible. Om Sai Sri Sai Jaya Jaya Sai
Anonymous Devotee from India says: Om Sai Ram to all. Thanks to Hetal Ji and her team. I am overwhelmed with joy. This is my third experience in this blog. Last week, I wanted to take my parents, my grand dad and my sister to Tirupathi. We had planned accordingly. I had prayed to Baba asking for a wonderful Darshan of Lord Bala ji. To all of our surprise, we got an amazing Darshan of Vaikuntadipathi Sri Bala ji in just 1 hour. We also found time to sit inside the Temple for more than half an hour. Few days back, my colleague had asked me to offer 9 Vastra to a Sai Baba Temple near my residence. So I did it as she wished. To my surprise, when I walked into the Temple today, I felt it was one of them but I kept quiet. When I went close to the Idol, the Pujari told it was from what you gave. I thanked Baba and also told my friend about this incident. As today is Thursday and many Vastra come as an offering to Baba but Baba chose to wear the dress which my friend offered.
After returning home, I was watching the live noon Aarti from Shirdi and also singing Bhajans, after which I was taking a small nap and I saw Baba’s Photo in an orange dress with hand in blessing position. After some time, I got an email from my manager with some corrections in my file. I was feeling bad and was low. I looked at Baba’s Photo and soon I got a message pray to “Bala ji”. I looked at Tirupathi Balaji’s photo and prayed in a few moments I saw a Sri Ram Lakshman Sita Idol being carried in a palanquin and some procession after it. I soon fell asleep. In a short while I saw Baba in real human form standing in front of me asking for alms. I was shocked. I kept staring at Him. Again He was standing with His Hands open then I remember giving Him Rs. 50 after which He carried a girl wearing a uniform and both waved bye and went away. I was worried about a proposal I received and was asking for Baba’s blessings and guidance. I am a Pranic Healer and I know to scan auras and chakras, after scanning I found a that His aura would not be compatible to mine. With a heavy heart, I went to Baba temple yesterday and told Baba and got a message from Baba saying, Do not worry about the future, nothing bad can happen to you. Thanks Baba, You have been showing me the right path always. Thanks Baba for giving me opportunities to do more service. Om Sai Ram.
Anonymous Devotee from India says: I am a devotee of Sai Baba since many years. I used to read Sai Satcharitra everyday and Sai Baba have blessed me always. Om Sai Ram. First of all I would like to thank You Sai for everything You have given me in life. As I have promised You Sai Baba that I will share my experience in which Baba helped me. Few days back, I was having urine infection. Doctor advised me antibiotic and said the bacteria is dangerous. I shared my problem with Sai, applied Udi everyday, read Sai Satcharitra and to my surprise the reports came out normal. Sorry Sai for not posting my experiences early and secondly You have blessed me with other miracle which I was desperately waiting for. I am going through medical tests and trust You Sai that all reports will be normal. Please bless me with normal report Sai Baba. Please protect me always and bless me! Thank You Baba and love You Baba. Om Sai Ram.
Anonymous Devotee from Canada says: I am a banker, have been living abroad for over 17 years. This was a long time ago, i used to keep Thursday fast. On the way to work, i went to the Temple. I remember the day distinctly, I had worn a purple colour suit. At the temple after worshipping, with my ring finger, i took a little bit of the Tilak and put it on my forehead on my purple Bindi. When i reached work a colleague commented “You girls wear different kind of Bindi, I did not know that now a days, Sai Baba’s Bindi is also available”. I looked at him perplexed. He and other colleagues started looking at my Bindi minutely, and exclaiming. I couldn’t keep my curiosity and peeled the Bindi off my forehead and indeed the orange Tilak in the Temple had formed a scarf for the head of Sai Baba and the low robe complete with V shape of the neck. After more than a decade, i have been through some testing times and have started my Sai Vrat with the same faith. Hoping my Sai Baba will bless me with His Darshan.
