Every Once In A While, Sai Baba Helps You, Even Out Of Emotional Turmoil
Anonymous Devotee from India says: I am in my last year of college and it’s only been five weeks since I have begun Sai Nav Vrat. I took it up to ensure a long life for my father who had been at the receiving end of an alarming threat a month and a half ago. And well, as a kid, my home tutor instilled faith in Baba in me but some circumstances caused me to lose touch with it, slowly it diminished and was no longer a driving force in my life. I would go to Sai Temple once in a while and I even went to Shirdi with my cousins but my faith in me wasn’t as strong as it used to be. Simply put I wasn’t so motivated even after taking up Sai Vrat until today. I was returning home from college, when my car was stopped at the traffic signal a little further from college, on the opposite one-sided lane. There is nothing new to it, it happens every day. The traffic signal is swamped with beggars and I usually recognize the ones that tend to haunt it and very rarely do I see a new face cropping up on the scene. But today was special. I was sitting in the car waiting for the traffic light to go green when I noticed a Baba selling incense sticks to the car ahead of me and I was dreading it already because I knew the Baba would be knocking down my window next when the girls in the prior car refused to. I come from a seemingly affluent joint family yet my father has been suffering through a financial crisis for the past few months and that leaves me with little to no money on my best days. In fact, I had just Rs 300 in my wallet.
The Baba came to my window next, I remember little about his appearance although it happened just a couple of hours ago. I remember him being dressed in white, carrying a Jhola. He wore thick spectacles and had a greyed beard. He knocked on my window once, I tried not to acknowledge him. However, my driver offered me money because he is quite aware of the fact that I almost never turn away any needful who comes to me. The Baba knocked again and my poor driver who is an exemplary human being started getting restless on my behalf. When the third knock came, my driver turned around to wave him off. I needed that money to buy essential notes and yet I couldn’t resist it, I dived into my bag for a Rs 100 note and handed it to the Baba without looking at him. I was a little upset with the Baba because he called me Behan ji, can you imagine a 20-something girl being called that? In return, he gave me the incense sticks in his hand; I shoved them on the back shelf of the car. He didn’t move away then, he continued. He blessed me saying ‘may Sai help you, may Sai allow you to live in abundance. He said some other things that I can’t quite recall, but I do recall smiling and nodding in response involuntarily at the mere mention of Baba’s Name, and when he finally moved away I didn’t even look back to scour for him. I didn’t think it was anything out of the ordinary until I reached home.
It was the fifth fast of my ‘Sai Nav Vrat’ and every Thursday, I take ten rupees from the Pandit ji at my Bua’s place as chadhava, I live with her, and always forget to pay him back. I have been thinking and meaning to give him Rs 100 to balance out the equation for some time now but as I said, I always forget. It was such a humongous coincidence that I didn’t have any change on me today, I always make it a habit to keep loose currency and I at times take money from my driver when I don’t have any and pay him back later. But today, I didn’t even think of that despite the fact that he offered, today I almost turned the fakir like Baba away, today I didn’t have lose money despite the fact that I always do, today I paid the fakir the exact amount I have been meaning to pay up as Baba’s Chadava. Today I found my faith in Sai again. So, I am not asking anyone to believe that the fakir was Sai Baba, I am not even saying that it was not a coincidence, maybe he was just an average vendor making a living for himself and I’m reading too much into it but whatever it was, it was momentous for me and just the sheer possibility that he could be a Godsend or maybe, just maybe, Baba testing me out Himself. Just the slightest of inklings that he could have been Sai in disguise is enough for the revival of faith in Baba me. As for the rest of you, you yourself get to decide. Om Sai Ram.
Sai Baba Showed Solution To The Problem Overnight
Anonymous Devotee from USA says: I am a strong believer in Sai Baba since my childhood, I got close to Baba after I came to study Masters. Baba was always with me throughout my life guiding me. This is my first experience posting here. Thank you Hetal ji for this wonderful blog. I read this every morning and it gives me immense happiness and increases my faith in Baba. I do read Sai Satcharitra once a year, but reading these experiences every day is making me a strong devotee of Baba. We stay in the USA and my husband is doing business here. One day for some issue, he got a court notice. By looking at it, we were shattered. It was a big case for him which was related to some mistakes he has done. We did not know how to come out of it. The same day night, I suddenly asked Baba, please get us out of this, or else we will be in a lot of trouble. The next day morning, my husband met the lawyer and to our surprise he said, this issue can be solved in some time by some rework, but this is the only country in the state in which we are staying has the option for a rework for the mistakes he has done, he said no other country has this option. I knew it was only because of Baba this happened, or else we would have been in a lot of trouble. Thank You so much, Baba.
There are many experiences in my life, He has been guiding us all the time. One more time, when I was starting the car, I usually start it after looking at a Baba Picture. One day when I was in the car, I saw Baba’s Picture and started the car, but it was not starting, I did not know the reason, I tried it for few times, and it took almost a minute or so to start the car and when I started and stared driving, there was a woman who came in the parking lot in a reverse with so much of speed, that if I had been there before that minute, she would have surely hit me. Baba saved me that day from the incident. Thank You so much Baba for being with all of us and blessing us all the time. One more experience was with my parents, My mom’s health was not as good as expected, they went to Shirdi and when they were in the Mandir after visiting Baba, when they were coming back from the middle row, at the end somebody was calling them, it was the priest who is near the Samadhi of Baba, he was telling everybody in the middle to call my mom and dad, and they looked back and went to near the statue, then the priest gave them the Sai Mantra Photo to them, it was Sai who gave them, which said read this and do ask Baba anything and it will be fulfilled, my parents were so happy, my health got cured. Thank You, Baba. Akhilanda Koti Brahma Nanda Nayak Raajadhiraj Yogi Raja Parabrahma Sachidanand Sadguru Sai Nath Maharaj Ki Jai. Jai Sai Ram.
Sai Baba Came Back In Devotee’s Life And Gave A Job
Sai Sister Sari from USA says: I live with my husband and two kids. Jai Mata Di, Jai Sai Ram. I am a big Devi Maa devotee. I want to share my experience of how I came close to Sai Baba. I know Baba from a very young age, as kids we used to visit Sai Temple as an outing rather than to offer prayers. When I was in college, I prayed to Sai to give me a good rank to get admission to engineering but I never got admission. Then slowly I forgot Baba. Later after many years in 2012, I started attending Baba Bhajans in my neighborhood. I started praying to Sai Baba but not with full faith. But I loved His Bhajans a lot. Slowly, I started praying Baba. He gave me a wonderful job when I needed it most without much difficulty. Recently we had to move to a different state and I felt so bad that I am going to miss all Sai Baba Bhajans. But when I came to a new state, Sai Baba started coming into my day-to-day life with full love. He appeared everywhere, whoever I meet they are talking about Sai. I was at home when I left my job and came to this city and I started researching Sai more and more I got to know about this site and started reading Sai Baba Leelas and I felt very happy and peaceful after reading each story. In a new city, I started looking for a job which became difficult with the new place and new companies. I was restless as I was not getting any interviews after applying for more than 100 jobs.
One day, I felt as if someone is saying me to start reading Sai Satcharitra, but I had no idea where to get that Holy Book from. One day, we went to Sai Baba Temple on our way and I just enquired from a volunteer can I buy Sai Satcharitra if they have one, he said to wait and got me that holy book with Sai Baba blessings as a gift. I tried to read it but it was so difficult to read in my language. Then I went online and started listening to Sai Satcharitra and it changed my outlook on life and I completed it in seven days. My husband prayed that he will do Sai Nav Guruvar Vrat but he did not do it. So I prayed to Sai Baba for my Job and started my Nav Guruvar Vrat. I started my first Vrat on Thursday and Sai Baba showed me His presence continuously for four days in different places. It’s not easy to have Sai Darshan in the USA as we don’t have so many Temples. But He made sure I get His Darshan no matter what. On the second Thursday, I did my Vrat and I had my first interview on that day in a new city I can say it was Sai Baba miracle only. That day I felt His holy presence everywhere and I did my interview well with the grace of Devi Maa and Sai Baba, they offered me a job and my joining day was today. As I prayed to Sai Baba and promised Him that if I get the job I will post my experience here to let everyone know that He is there to bless us and show us the correct path to lead a blessed life. Jai Mata Di. Om Sai Ram.
Sai Baba Helped in Family Relations
Sai Brother Ronak from India says: Hello, this is the fourth time I am sharing my experience here. I am Baba’s very ardent devotee since November 2013. I always offer food to Sai Baba then I start eating. I am from a family of five members. My grand Maa lives with my dad’s elder brother but his son and daughter in laws and grandchildren live abroad. So they decided to go to London and leave my grand Maa who is too old and weak and can’t travel much, at our home. Slowly slowly, things were going worst in our home. My mom was not behaving nicely with Grand Maa and then Dad was also talking rudely with grand Maa. My grand Maa’s problem is she forgets some matters shortly and speaks too much though she is wrong. One day my parents fought with my Grand Maa Too much and told my Aunty to take Grand Maa to her home. She came and took her but everyone was too upset due to my parent’s behavior. My Grand Maa cried the whole day saying that my son had thrown me out of the home. Then I prayed to dear Sai Baba that please make all relationships a little bit easy. Then after a week, my dad get my Grand Maa at our home but still, my Mom was the same, dad was gone a little nice. Then again I was in fear for Grand Maa. Then I prayed to Dear Sai Baba that pleases if the last few days, until my uncle and aunty from Abroad do not come here and take Grand Maa away, all should stay at home without any fight and I will write my experience here. Today my grand Maa had gone to her town with uncle aunty and till this day there was no big fight due to our Dear Sai Baba. So I am sharing this experience with you. Sai Baba bless all. Ananta Koti Brahmand Nayak Raajadhiraj Yogiraj Parabrahma Shri Sachidanand Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai.
Sai Baba Is The Master Of This Universe
Anonymous Devotee from India says: How do I start writing about His Greatness, Grace, and Motherly Nature? I started following Sai Baba 15 years ago. With each and every step I have taken in my life, I feel I was handheld and guided by Baba, His eternal love towards His devotees.
Coming to the miracle, I promised Baba that I will post it here. After my dad’s retirement, I wanted my father to invest in an apartment, and live peacefully, close to my house. But he was very adamant that he will not invest his hard-earned money into an apartment, but rather buy a plot and build a new house. But given his age, I knew it would have been a tedious task to do. With Baba’s influence, my dad finally agreed to buy an apartment. I had meanwhile, searched for an apartment, in my locality, and we finalized on the same apartment. It’s only because of Baba, we were able to make payments, part by part, over the year and now we finally got it registered. I will name the home, after him. Om Sai Ram. Also, my husband, who had not changed his job for close to 10 years, has finally gotten a job, with a better perspective. I started the Nav Guruvar Vrat and in the third week, he was offered the job. Baba, please be with my husband and guide him in the next steps. Please be there for me and my family. You are the eternal Master Of This Universe. Om Samarth Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai.
Sai Baba Helped
Anonymous Devotee from US says: I have a 2.5-year-old son and I am from the USA. Thanks for the contributors to this site. They are blessed souls. It might look like a simple thing but only a mother who experienced this can understand the pain I went through. We made the bottle habit for my son a week after his birth. When he was a year old, the doctor advised us to stop the habit as it is one of the reasons behind his constant ear infection and give him another source to drink milk/water. I tried to stop it from 1 year to 2.5 years but failed. He cries inconsolably, cannot sleep, will not drink water for days without the bottle, and go dehydrated. I cannot see this and eventually will give him the bottle. But every time when we go to the doctor, we get scolded for not stopping it. I prayed to Sai sincerely and all of sudden, he slept without asking for the bottle it continued for a week and he got out of the habit without any drama. It is really a Miracle because I did not do anything extra. It also happened due to Sai. Thank You and I Love You, Baba. I don’t have any words to express my gratitude.
