Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
Anonymous Devotee from UK says: My deepest thanks to the administrators of this site who work to reconnect us with Sai Baba and remind us that He is a living presence in our lives. I apologise in advance for the length of this piece. Our family has had a long association with Baba. I came to know about Sai Baba through my father (now 70) who became a devotee in his youth. My father tells me that even before he found out about Baba, he always felt an unseen spiritual presence in his life. As a boy, he used to walk miles to school through a forest from one village to the next and through the corner of his eye, he would see someone clothed in white following him, as though protecting him. He would turn and there would be no one there. He later wondered if this was Baba. My parents tell me that when I was one, my father was at the top of a flight of stairs in our house, worshipping Baba when I suddenly appeared behind him and saying, ‘Baba! Baba!’ I had climbed all the stairs by myself because I heard the prayer bell and knew that Baba’s Pooja had begun. And now, my eldest child, when aged 18 months, pointed to a Picture of Him and said ‘Baba’ when we had never mentioned Him before to the child. He also said, ‘When I was in mummy’s tummy, it was dark and I was scared, Baba came and put me on His shoulder’. This was when he was 2 but he is older now and has forgotten all about it. So, as you can see, His presence has spanned three generations in our family.
Of experiences, there are many but I would like to mention the Nav Guruvar Vrat which I am doing at the moment. I have done 8 Thursdays so far and have not yet got what I asked for. The reason I write about it is, when I started it, it was for a particular reason but I realised when I was doing it that Baba was inspiring me to do it for a completely different reason! I planned to start on a particular Thursday. By the time that day came around, I had an impressive set of problems. I was going through a really rough patch with my husband, he had lost his job and had developed a health problem. I was under a lot of stress at work and had developed a health problem myself. None of the above were the original reason I wanted to do the Vrat! After the first Vrat, my husband and I talked and decided to mend our relationship which had been pretty turbulent for a while. For the first time in months, the tension in the house eased and this in turn had a beneficial effect on our health. Around the 6th or 7th Vrat, my husband got a new job with the terms and conditions that he had hoped for. More importantly than any of these was the fact that I felt much closer to Baba than I had for a while but also, He effected changes within me and in my thinking which were the root cause of some of my problems. Somehow, what I had originally asked for didn’t seem as important anymore.
I would like to mention a humorous incident before I sign off (Apologise beforehand if anything I say offends anyone). It is my experience that Baba has a great sense of humour. I have always had a tricky relationship with my husband as we are a bit like chalk and cheese. I am a sensitive person and he has an insensitive manner which does not make for a great combination. There have been situations in which he has said some quite cruel things to me. We had gradually drifted apart over time and in the last year, I was feeling quite unloved and lonely. Early in 2015, I found myself in the peculiar situation of having developed a “crush” on a TV actor. He is quite a handsome chap and I became a little obsessed with him. I would Google for images of him and stare at them with much sighing and pining. I began to have some ridiculous fantasies about meeting this TV actor and becoming friends with him even though the probability of this happening was next to impossible! (In hindsight, I realise how low I must have been feeling at the time.) It became such a problem that I actually asked a question on Baba’s question and answer site about it (Please feel free to laugh, fellow devotees as I am laughing with you as I write!). This is what came up: Do not accept falsehoods as truth. Remember Shree Sai. Keep faith and wait. You will get proper direction. I can almost imagine the twinkle in Baba’s eyes as He said it. I burst out laughing when I read this as it was so appropriate. True to his words, my attachment to this chap gradually dwindled but it took quite a funny incident to finally nip it in the bud.
One day, I was watching him on TV in a serious dramatic scene. It was a tense moment during which the protagonists were in danger of losing their lives. Suddenly, this chap ripped his shirt off and started showing everyone his chest for no apparent reason. It was so ridiculous that I cracked up. I immediately thought-‘What a silly thing to do. I can’t believe I actually admired this guy, he is an idiot!’ It was as if Baba was showing me how silly the whole thing was. I had a good laugh with Baba about it and that was that. My relationship with my husband will never be what I want it to be but he has many good points and I have accepted it as my lot. There are lessons that this relationship will teach me and I am certain it is a means to work out karma and to fix some character flaws that I have. So, all who are reading this: however unusual or silly your problem, Baba has seen it all before and knows exactly how to solve it! We are fortunate to have a God who takes a personal interest in the minute of our problems and comes up with tailor-made solutions to help us. He never judges us but gently and lovingly brings us onto the right path. This is Sai, every man’s Baba, unique and unprecedentedly accessible. It is said enough times on this site but we still falter; let us keep faith in His plan and have patience. I pray that He blesses us all with peace and contentment. Om Sai Ram.
Anonymous Devotee from India says: Om Sai Ram to all. I really don’t know how to start. But here i go with my Baba’s miracles. I use to stay near Baba’s Temple in my childhood. Everyday i use to visit. I prayed and never seriously followed Him. Even now my personal life and career not sure where it will go but i just trust Him and i left to Him, i know He will take care. I had job where in i stayed 5 years, i struggled to switch my job but nothing clicked. While praying i had given word to Baba if i get new job i will visit Shirdi. In 2010, i got new job and met some interesting friends. Where in we all loved travelling we use to travel over weekends but i use to feel guilty for not visiting Shirdi. Later i forgot. Exactly after one year, i had problem with my project and i came to bench from there they moved to difference project where it was hell. I literally seen hell, no hike in salary and bad shift no recognition for hard work and all. Meanwhile in the change of my project all friends separated and moved to different company and city. One of my friend moved to Pune and all other friends including me planned to visit and have some good time. So accordingly, i took initiative to book tickets.
Now see how Baba pulled me to Shirdi. One friend got official work and he had travel to US, and only me and other girl remained. Two tickets to Pune i booked and with so much of arguments she dropped saying she can’t come and i can’t travel alone so i went to travel agent to cancel tickets. In the phone he had told me he will give 50% of the ticket money only. I had paid 3k. I thought let me try luck and went to travel agent. Believe it or not the travel agent shop was full of Baba posters and calendar smiling at me and i even can’t forget that expression till now. I really had tears in my eyes and told travel agent not to refund any amount instead book Shirdi ticket for one person both ways. It was such a great trip. I travelled alone and good nice experience. Meanwhile coming back, i also visited my friend in Pune and spend a day roaming city and came back. After this incident, i decided every year i go to Shirdi. In the coming year, my Pune friend wedding was in Kolhapur. I thought i first go to Shirdi and then to wedding alone. Now co incidence is who ever had missed earlier to Pune they both joined me to Shirdi as well. I felt really happy and took them to Shirdi and then attended wedding. Now this year again i wanted to go alone to Shirdi and it turned out to be the good family trip of ours. My sister, dad and niece all joined me. This in year 2015 i finished 2 trips to Shirdi in Feb and November. This is how Baba pulled me under His wings. From that i am so much revealed. Any tension, i always have feeling He will take are and He will show the way. Om Sai Ram. Ananta Koti Brahmand Nayak Raajadhiraj Parabrahma Sadguru Sri Sai Nath Maharaj Ki Jai.
Anonymous Devotee from India says: Om Sai Ram all my fellow devotees. Wish you all a very happy and Sai Maa new year! The reason I have kept the title of my experience as ‘ Yet more miracles of Baba’ is Sai Baba never fails to do miracles in His devotees lives. His presence itself is a wonderful gift to all. He never fails to surprise His devotees. Recently, some days back, after my dinner I was in my bedroom resting and reading experiences of devotees when I read about how Baba saved a devotee from a near death experience due to some problem with the bus, the devotee was travelling in. Just as I was reading this experience my mother shouted from the kitchen calling us all to show something. When we went she showed that our LPG gas pipe was having a big cut. While cleaning the kitchen she saw this and was astonished as well as thankful as to how Sai saved us all from such a grave trouble! Believe it or not, it was a miracle that when the cut in the pipe was evident, the gas was off so no harm was caused to our family. Otherwise our entire house would have been burnt down in such a situation! Moreover, we found that the cut was very big and thus it must have been there from many days or even months! It is really a miracle of Sai that we all are alive without even a scratch today! That too this miracle happened just when I was reading about how Sai saved another devotee from a near death experience, it feels as if Sai had assured me beforehand that I’m there, nothing wrong can happen with you.
Another miracle that happened recently was, I was trying to contact my boyfriend from 3-4 hours since he had gone out for eating (he stays in another city now, so I was concerned) but he was not responding. I was really scared and tried calling but in vain. Then I took Sai Baba’s Name and tried again and he picked up instantly! He said that his battery was dead so he kept his phone for charging and had forgotten about it. While I was trying and trying something in vain for hours, Sai’s Name only made it possible in a matter of few seconds! I marvel at Baba’s greatness at times. You are so full of miracles Baba. Please don’t leave my hand Sai and please fulfil my wish of making me stay in the same city as my boyfriend. Do good to all my Baba. Cure everyone’s illnesses, take away everyone’s sorrows and give peace and happiness to all. Thank you readers for being so patient throughout. Om Shree Sai Nathaya Namah.
Sai Sister Chandana from India says: Hello everyone, First of all i would like to thank Hetal ji for making this blog. I read Baba’s experiences from this blog whenever i feel down and i get spirit. I am doing my graduation now. Baba helped me in many hard times of my life. Baba, I don’t know where to start and how to start, i used to go to Baba’s Temple nearby my house frequently and i prayed Him like normal Gods, But i became very close to Him from last year. Last year, we shifted to another house where Baba’s Temple is next to my house. I feel He wanted to bought me here because we rejected many houses and later got into this house. Then i started praying Him with Shradda and Saburi. I feel so comfortable with Baba. I sometimes talk to Him looking at His statue through my heart, Sometimes I even fight with Him, I came to know That “Just believe Him and leave your pain on Him” He will do miracle.
Here i would like to post the experience happened to me few moments ago, While i was cleaning my book shelf i found an important paper missing here, which i need to submit in college next month usually i keep things so carefully but i don’t know where i missed, even i have kept my sister’s document in the same cover, i was very tensed because it is a bond paper where a print out of it is also not accepted. At the same time, night Aarti started in Baba’s Temple, I just prayed to Baba that i should find the paper before or by the completion of the Aarti, i will post it now and stared searching everywhere. I searched every shelf where i keep books and every bag and every locker. But i did not found it. I told to my mom and started searching again. Then i went back to the room again and in a sort i thought of searching the suitcase again. Then suddenly i found the paper in it Just before i searched the suitcase and came back to my room and again i went to suitcase i found it, At the same time the Aarti came to an end in temple and they started announcing something in mike. This is just because of Baba. He taught a lesson to me and today is Thursday too. I feel that I did some mistake knowingly or unknowingly, please pardon me Baba please. Baba, You know what kind of situation i am facing now please help me out of this situation and help me in my exams Baba, Please. Aum Sai Ram, Om Sai Ram, Om Sai Ram.
Sai Sister Shubhangi from India says: Om Sai Ram. I am happy that Baba is there for me every second of my life. He is everything for me. Last time, He cured me from one disease and this time, after 5 years of my delivery, i got eczema disease on my both feet. I was literally crying and i said to Baba, it’s upon Him if He wants to keep me with this disease i am happy. But if You are not curing my diseases and stopping me from getting something big disease then i am really happy, don’t take it away. But this time my husband couldn’t see me with this pain and he decides to take me to Shirdi and pray for me. After coming from Shirdi immediately from next day the disease got cured which took 5 years without any medicine and i just applied Udi and it got cured. I told Baba if He gets me out of this, i will definitely publish my experience. Thank You Baba for curing me. Please get me my visa soon and husband with good job and give Your blessings to all of us. Remove all the pains. Om Sai Shri Sai Jai Jai Sai, Shri Sachidanand Sadguru Sai Nath Maharaj Ki Jai.
Sai Brother Shree from India says: Before 2 years, i started business of Pune Car Rental. When i started the business, at that time i was in loss in all points. At that time, i prayed Baba and then after few weeks, i was shocked to see my business going to top with the help of Baba. So at that time, i decided to start new service from Pune like a ‘Pune To Shirdi Cab’, ‘Car Hire In Pune’, ‘Pune To Shirdi Car Booking’.
