Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
Anonymous Devotee from India says: Hi hetal ji, you are a blessed soul, keep up your great Upasna you are doing to Baba! This is my third post on your blog! I am Baba’s daughter and my life starts and ends on Baba! This is my experience when i visited Baba’s heaven Shirdi for first time and attain bliss which i want to share so that others can also feel same! I am sorry for long post i tried to cut short otherwise Baba Leela didn’t end. Once i was checking Baba’s question answer site and i asked that Baba when You will call me Shirdi, it came that a person will come to you and you will plan for your travel and on Diwali there will be a big gain and yes someone visited my house on Diwali and talked about his Shirdi experience and then on 12th November 2015, we booked our ticket suddenly for 8th March 2016. I was overwhelmed as i was waiting for so long and i left tea for almost one year for going Shirdi and finally Baba called me. I waited somehow these months and prayed Baba that i should have Darshan like i have in my heart, made a list and gave Baba in my home temple that Baba let all these things i do in Shirdi for sure. Thinking of being in Shirdi used to make my eyes wet and the day was passing in a hurry as i wanted that Baba let the day pass like a rocket and i see You soon.
Then finally that day came and i was ready to go. I was very happy, i was bare footed and i started my journey. When i reached Manmad, i saw Baba all around it was really amazing may be this is normal but i was feeling great then we reached Sansthan and i wished Baba, please if You are waiting for me eagerly like i was please wear anything green then as soon as i put my luggage in Sai ashram i saw LCD in office and to my surprise Baba was wearing green. Then i was overwhelmed, yes Baba was waiting for His daughter. Then i went for Darshan. I was in queue and there was Sai Naam Jaap all around. I was like finally i am here the day i waited so long. Slowly when we move to see Baba as soon as i step in Mandir, my eyes were completely wet and i cried so much like i just run and hold Baba and thank Him that because of You i am alive, You changed my life, really Baba changed me, my 24*7 is for Baba. I was moving towards Baba’s face Darshan, i stand there 10 minutes and kept looking and crying no one touched me, no one pulled me back then i wanted to touch Samadhi, guard didn’t allowed me from that side, i was quite upset but Saimaa had another plan for us as soon as i went out i saw donation office where i gave Baba clothes and in my mind there was that please i get loads of Vibhuti from here which was impossible. Before going to Shirdi, i said to Baba that please bless me with lots of Vibhuti as i have to give it to lots of people and me too want it at least 15-20 packets after that and lo!! The man in donation office gave me almost 27 packets in my hand at a sudden this make my mind relax and i went to Prasadalay and have food more than i can eat this was also a miracle for me.
Then i wanted to attend Kakad Aarti for sure it was my dream (I know all 4 Marathi Aarti of Baba by heart and it was my dream to shout in Samadhi Mandir in my devotion) and yes apart from being many confusion i attended all the Aarti of my Saimaa which was a point on my list which i made before going Shirdi. I have Darshan of Samadhi from one side very easily it was Thursday and i did all Aartis and the biggest thing when i was doing Darshan of Samadhi i had given Idol of Baba to priest and He made my idol sit there for 10 minutes maximum it was bliss really that Idol i brought home and see if i am seeing Shirdi. I went to Dwarkamai and i want to sit there but there was already a big crowd sitting and there was no space but after Aarti everybody near me who was standing get aside even policeman didn’t see me and i sat down. Baba fulfilled my every wish there i buy Baba’s idol and it was kept on Samadhi for almost 5 minutes and finally i touched Samadhi and was feeling so blessed full of bliss as if now everything is completed, i was really very happy after that. There was one dog who attend Baba Kakad Aarti daily, i saw it and he used to come daily listen Aarti in Darbar and go. When i saw him, i wanted to give him some sweets and in evening i was searching for him, i found him and he ate all my sweets and then he went. Really Shirdi is a place where you can find all the peace of mind where Baba resides, Baba was there with me listening me, my demands like a mother.
Now coming to Neem tree, i did four Parikarma and beg for a Neem leave to Baba and at the end when i was doing one last time before going back to station i really begged Baba that “Sai please give me one Neem leave”. Then one man came, he fly his Prasad on the tree there was 3-4 Neem leaves which fall, everyone took and went. I was still searching and my heart broke, then suddenly i saw stairs where i found one leaf which was victory of my hope that yes if we trust it would never be broken. I was happy with one leaf and then with heavy heart i was going to Sai Aashram that i am leaving my Baba’s place, it was very bad feeling, i feel if i leave everything and stay in Shirdi doing Baba’s Seva forever but i don’t know in this birth if it is possible then my heart again said before leaving i should say bye to Baba in Dwarkamai, take His permission as everybody did in His time. I convinced my mother after reaching shoe stand then with Baba’s grace my father agreed anyhow and i went with him. Then miracles of miracles i was waiting signal from Baba for my vow of tea which i left for one year to visit Shirdi as i told i had not drink yet because Baba didn’t came to ask for tea like He gave signal to Cholkar in chapter 15 in Sai Satcharitra for leaving sugar, i hope that someone from Shirdi ask me for it then near Dwarkamai the lady came to me ask me in Marathi (Do you want tea) with 4 disposable glasses in hand, i didn’t understand anything there because i was seeing my father who went forward my mind was there as we have catch train from Mumbai and we have to leave early already it was late (This was all confusion created by Baba so that i didn’t recognise) then lady said “Have you done good Darshan”.
Then i visited Dwarkamai after having Darshan. I was thinking, he was my Sai as who will come and ask this take tea and the biggest thing how she knows that i did Darshan, Baba it’s Your Leela which i think and i get goose bumps that last point of my list is also completed and again Baba saved us. We were going to Bombay central and at 6 pm we had our train from Panvel, we didn’t knew that and before leaving i open question answer site in which there was “Bad occasion will be avoided and your work will be done with letter of identification”. I didn’t understand at that time but when clock strike 5 in evening, we were moving to Bombay central but suddenly we stopped at a shop there was big portrait of my Baba, i told my dad train is from Panvel i told this before also but my father got confused that it runs from Bombay central but stop at Panvel but no, there was no stoppage at Bombay central and train was running from Trivandpuran and will only stop at Panvel, see how Baba help us (Letter of identification) then challenge was we have to cover 60 km in one hour in Mumbai road and train stop for 5 minutes. Everybody loose hope but i didn’t loose because i knew Baba will surely help us anyhow. I started doing Jaap, reading Sai Satcharitra in taxi. Everybody was just so tensed, it was 5.40 pm and still was searching our destination but no, i was calm and relax as i knew power of my Baba then i don’t know how time contracted, what happened, we were there in station at 5.50 pm, all hearts were beating fast. We even turn wrong way in between apart of being 100 of confusion, we reached and all the way Baba’s Name and His pictures boost me.
Then miracle of miracle, train was before time and it was in front of our eyes coming in station it stop only 5 minutes we run like anything, cried badly after seeing the train as i want to hug Baba, fall in His feet as it was a dream that we were in train how i don’t know Baba, Baba, i love You. We reached home safely, then again my heart was heavy that also Baba cured by giving His presence as the Picture of Baba which i brought from Shirdi was giving fragrance of rose which was my dream once that Baba the photo which i will bring from Shirdi let it smell like rose this is my Shirdi trip and my life trip is also same with Baba as i am in Him and He is in me. I want to take my last breath on His feet! Baba changed me, my life and gave me new birth, saved me from all negative things, there are no words to explain His inexplicable Leela! Dear devotees, always love Him from your full heart, He will love you more than you do but don’t expect anything else only pray to Him for true devotion and His path of humanity, He will hold you and take you to His world of true devotion. Jai Sai Ram.
Anonymous Devotee from Australia says: Dear Team, This is my third post. Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job. I have moved to Australia last year. Whenever I feel sad or depressed which is very common for Indian in foreign land, I open this website and feel so relaxed and calm. Thank you. This is my third post on this website. I am Baba’s daughter and last year I have moved to Australia. First of all I want to say a big thank you to people behind this amazing website which gives us path to reach Baba every day by bringing beautiful stories that’s makes every devotee more closer to Baba. I am sorry for this long post and thank you for taking out time and reading my post and if my post will bring hope in someone’s life, I will be more than happy. About Baba what do I say, words are less and my mind and my hands can’t think and right what Baba is. As vast as ocean, as beautiful as flower, as innocent as an infant, as bright as a beautiful sunrise that gives hope of living after every dark night. Baba is every thing and impossible to describe. I call Baba Pita ji, my father my protector. “Tu Mera Rakha Sabni Thai” You are my protector at every place. I have experienced many of Baba’s miracles in my life.
Before telling about my miracles I want to tell this all the readers, Baba is your Mother, your Father. Like a mother take care of her child without anything in return so does Baba. Please do not do investment by saying I will do this if You will give me that Baba. e.g. many of people do Vrat for Baba in hope of getting what they want. Baba will give you what you want and the only thing which is required Shradha and Saburi. If you will be hungry it will not help anyone nor you and if you think Baba will be happy then you are wrong. If you read any holy book Guru Granth Sahib and even in Sri Sai Charitra, it is always said that you cannot do prayers with Empty stomach, you have feed yourself, your organs should be relaxed and satisfied. Instead of that if you feed the hungry any one human or any animal or even an insect, you will make Baba very happy, trust me and most importantly do good to others, never hurt anyone, never cheat anyone and always remember Baba. I know many will not be disagree but trust me I did not want to write this but may be Baba wanted me to write this. I have not done any fast nor I have abandon anything to get what I want from Baba but still Baba has given me everything whatever I wanted and whatever I did not even know that I want. I had my share of ups and downs but I try and keep patience (Saburi) and full faith (Shradha) in Baba. If I have hurt anyone feeling, I am really sorry for that.
My First experience is, My parents were looking for an alliance for me. I have seen and met few guys but did not like any one. I was really sad and depressed as it’s a difficult process to meet some one and decide in one meeting about your whole life and specially for a girl to leave her parents and live with a family you don’t even know. I use to pray to Baba every day, I use to say I am Your daughter You have find someone good for me. You are my father and You have to take a responsibility to find a good match for me. I was loosing my patience, I have read many times people keep fast to get what they want. I wanted to do but as it is against what our Baba says I thought if I really want to do something I will feed 9 people for next 9 Thursday. Every Thursday me and my mother use to give food to labourers, rickshaw man or anyone who is hungry and wants to eat, sometimes I use to feed more than 9. After 4th Thursday, I met my husband which was again an Baba’s miracles. In first week of March I saw a dream in which Baba told me you will get married in June, as it as March it was not at all possible to get married in June as I did not meet any guy and there was no possibility. I was first introduced with my husband on 21st March and in three days he said yes. I have asked him what is your plans, he said if you say yes I will come to India in June and we will do court marriage as he is in Australia and to expedite the process of visa we have to do court marriage first. I was Shocked as what Baba said came true. We got married in June.
On the day of our marriage I went to Baba’s temple, I was in a queue, I don’t why but I said to myself if I get two roses near Baba’s feet my marriage will be blessed my Baba. As the line was going ahead I thought it’s not necessary that I will get red colour only then I said to myself even if I get two roses any colour I will be ok. I was scared if I will not get what I said then it will be in my mind that Baba has not blessed our marriage but I was such a fool, Baba has given me my partner why Baba will not bless us. As the line was going ahead there were many doubts in my mind. I was about to reach and I saw whatever flower people were offering to Baba the same flower they were taking back and I saw from little far behind there were no flower near Baba’s feet. I was little sad then my turn came, I have bowed down to Baba’s feet. The moment I saw my left side there were two roses same size, same red colour and there were no other flower. My joy knew no bound, tears started rolling out of my eyes. That’s Baba’s love for their children. I love You Baba for everything. I have kept those roses in my path that I do and have attached the photo of those flowers as well.
Another experience is, I use to take rickshaw in the morning from my house to reach the bus stop from where I get my office bus. One morning i did not get any rickshaw and I was Eagerly waiting. I prayed to Baba and I saw a rickshaw coming and that was a battery rickshaw (I use to live in Delhi ) and one Sardar Ji wearing very fine cloths and a smile on his face stopped rickshaw near me, however, I had not stopped that rickshaw as I was in hurry I did not think anything and have told to go to that bus stop. In the middle of the trip I don’t know from where but it came to my mind if he is Baba he will not ask for money. How it is possible a rickshaw Wala will not ask you for money and that too in the morning. He stopped the rickshaw at my stop. I took money out of my purse. He said in Punjabi ”Nai beta rehn de beta ”’ I was so happy but I have forcefully given money to him and went to office bus. My office was at one hour distance from that stop. Whole way I was thinking about Baba and listening to His songs.
Third experience is, I was waiting for my visa, where others were getting visa approved in 12 months, I have got my visa in 6 and half month only. Before leaving for Australia all of my work completed on time with Baba’s grace. After coming to Australia The most difficult thing is to get a job. Where people get job in 6 months to 1 year or something and not even in their field, I have got job in 1 week. I came to Australia on 2nd of July, I have applied for job on 23 July and 3 August was my joining and that too a very good position that I would have never get in India. Now I am a permanent employee of a very good company. I have many miracles of Baba that I experience everyday. Baba take cares of every one, Baba loves every one equally. I thank Baba every moement. I am so blessed to have Baba in my life. My life is incomplete without my Pita ji, on Rakhsha bandana I tie Rakhi to Baba first than to my brother. Baba will give you everything, just keep patience and have full faith in Baba. Bow to Sri Sai, Peace be to all.
Anonymous Devotee from Malaysia says: Om Sai Ram to all devotees of Shirdi Sai Baba. First of all, I would like to thank Hetal ji and the whole team for their noble deed. Blessings from all around the world will reach your whole team for carrying out such a pious work of preparing a platform for sharing devotee’s experiences and thus increasing devotee’s faith and patience towards Sai Baba. I am an ardent devotee of Baba from Malaysia. I am blessed with such loving and caring family, friends, good health and a beautiful life to lead on. But yet, I always wished of having a person to love me and always be beside me as a support. I was then 21 years, when one day, back in October 2015, I felt so lonely and was hurt for some reason, went to bed by holding a small statue of my father Sai and wept to Him about me having lost all the hope of ever getting someone in my life who would ever love me. One month later, on 29th November 2015, Baba introduced a guy in my life through my mother. He’s Ananth, 28, a Navy Officer. We started talking to each other through phone and eventually started liking each other. We then met without my mother’s knowledge at Baba’s Mandir and that’s when I felt as He’s the one Baba has chosen and sent for me as I always wished to bring my life partner in front of Baba. Everything went on well for two months and then we had our first fight in January 2016. We still managed to settle it and talked to each other normally.
One month later, he went to his hometown and since then he started avoiding me. He didn’t even pick up my phone calls and didn’t even respond for any of my messages. I went in search of him to the Army Base and that ended up in a big trouble. His higher officer took action towards him for allowing a girl in the base for looking after him. He almost got suspended from his job and got transferred to some other rural area and this increased his anger on me. He told my friends that He don’t wish to see my face in his life after this as I have spoiled his life. I couldn’t bear the pain and went home crying my heart out to my mom. She called him and asked him what has happened and his response was that I was the one who went after him and all these problems were caused by me. This happened on 15th February 2016. Three days later, my mom told me that he has been transferred to some other place and that I should forget him. I have lost contact with him and I still couldn’t figure out what was the reason he did this. I was totally broken and shattered. I kept crying and almost thought of ending up my life but that’s when I got the idea of starting Nav Guruvar Vrat since it was a Thursday. I started praying to Baba and asked Him to show me the truth and whether he has got transferred to other place.
After completing the first week of my Vrat, miracles started to happen. On 20th February 2016, I accidentally saw him riding his bike and passing by me by the roadside. Through this, Baba has shown me that he didn’t get transferred and he’s still here. Then, on 22nd February 2016, I joined the Pournami Pooja in Baba’s Mandir. I prayed to Baba and asked Him to show Ananth again if he’s the one for me. To my surprise, two days later, on 24th February, I again saw him by roadside passing by me. I also started doing the Satcharitra Parayan and after completing my first reading another miracle happened. On 29th February, Ananth liked my cover photo on Facebook. Before this, he had stopped liking my pictures and statuses. This might seem useless to others, but this small miracle is meaningful for me. Then I started doing my second Satcharitra Parayan and continued my 9 weeks Vrat as usual. I then find a job and started working and it was on a Thursday, 3rd March 2016. At my workplace, I shared my story with my colleague, who then suggested me to seek the help of an astrologer as she have consult him before and are satisfied with the analysis of her birth chart. I too wanted to analyse my birth chart and went to meet the astrologer. But before that, I went to Baba’s Mandir as usual to seek His blessings. I have behaviour of checking Baba’s question and answer book before starting on something new. So, I randomly flipped the book and to my surprise, I received an answer from Baba asking me not to get indulge in guesswork and analysis but to have immense faith in Him. I dropped my idea of seeking the help of astrologer and went back home.
Few days later, it was supposed to be the fifth week of my Vrat on 17th March but I couldn’t perform Pooja for Baba at house as I accidentally broke Baba’s statue. I then went to Baba’s Mandir on same night for Thursdays Pooja and told the swami ji about the statue getting broken. He told me not to worry and immediately get a new Baba’s statue. It was a miracle how on the same day, I had exactly the same amount of money which is of the same cost of Baba’s statue. The swami ji asked me to leave the Baba’s statue in the Mandir to be kept in the Pooja before handing it over to me. The following week, on Tuesday, 22nd March 2016, I casually went to the Mandir to take back my Baba with me. The swami ji asked me to wait for one more day as the next day is Pournami and it will be more auspicious if I bring Baba back on that day. Being dejected, I stood in front of Baba in the Mandir and mentally had a fight with Baba. I told Him that I have lost my patience and faith and I don’t know who else I should seek to get my answer if Ananth would ever be back into my life and took up the question and answer book and flipped the pages. Then Baba’s answer came up as follows ” Worship the photo of Shirdi Sai Baba at home and see miracles taking place”. I was quite confused with the answer given by Baba as I don’t have any pictures of Baba at home. Then, as soon as I reach home, I saw two photos of Baba in my altar which has been sent earlier to be framed last week. (I have attached the same photo here) It came home the same day I received the message from Baba. I was wonder struck.
The next day was Full Moon day, 23rd March 2016. I went to Baba’s Mandir and joined the Pournami Pooja. I came back at night after completing the Pooja with the new Baba’s statue and placed it in my altar. At the same time, I felt very sad as I was missing Ananth a lot. The same night, I wept in front of Baba’s photo I received a day before and was blaming Baba for causing my heartbreak. I told Baba how much I missed Ananth and how I wish to see him. I also asked Baba if Ananth was the one for me, I should see him very soon. The next day itself, a miracle happened. It was my fifth week of Vrat, 24th Thursday 2016. After completing Pooja at home, I went to Baba’s Mandir in the evening. I will usually visit Ganesha’s temple beside Baba’s Mandir before going to Baba’s Mandir. As soon as I step out of Ganesha’s Mandir after praying, I saw Ananth opposite the temple in a food stall by roadside. I was so shocked as the miracle Baba has mentioned happened right in front of my eyes. I am so happy as Baba is slowly bringing miracles into my life and He’s always with me showering me with His blessings. My faith in Sai Baba has increased a thousand fold. I hope Baba will soon bring Ananth back into my life again. Dear Sai devotees, I hope all of you will spend at least a minute out of your busy life to pray for me. All your blessings could miraculously bring Ananth back into my life. Thank you! Samasta Loka Sukhino Bhavantu! Om Sai Ram.
Anonymous Devotee from India says: Sai, Sai, To all the devotees of our beloved Baba. My Namasakar to all the people associated with this blog. My experience unfolds here that whenever we call out to Baba He is there to fulfil all our wishes. As stated in the Sai Satcharitra that the Udi is the most beneficial medicine for any physical and mental ailments, this was not only true when Baba was living in flesh in Shirdi but is also true in today’s materialistic world also. First of all sorry Baba for posting it late but it all happens with the grace and will of Baba. My daughter 6 years complained of stomach pain while we were heading for a Sunday brunch. She is fond of hopping and outside food, but that day she denied coming with us and the next minute she said she will come but will not have any food outside. This attitude of her made me worried as she loves eating outside food but we take care that it’s just once a week. I prayed to Baba and applied Udi on her stomach and assured her that Baba will take care. She too is fond of Baba. In the morning if at home she keeps a flower near Baba’s idol at home or after coming from school. Rest is well known to everyone she never complained of stomach pain afterwards and played games at the mall and had food too. If you have the greatest Doctor of Doctor’s with you, where is the need to worry. He took away my daughter’s pain and made all of us happy.
I have posted a lot of experiences here and can post everyday as there is always a gift from Him everyday. To be very true all my wishes have come true the day I excepted Baba as my Guru, or can say Baba accepted me as His devotee. Let me be at Your feet Deva, lifelong and give us sweet dishes of love. Make me more caring and loving towards my family and loved ones. Let my ego serve You at Your feet and die there. There is one more wish to be granted by Baba, and I know by heart that this was fulfilled earlier by Him too but by thinking myself to be more learned I could not understand His Leela. I disobeyed Him and the fruit I got from my action was bitter, whereas He served me with lots of deliciousness but mistook them. Sorry Baba but waiting for Your mercy to dawn on me once again. I feel it’s very near to me and I promise that the mistake won’t be repeated as well will make people understand the same to my extent. Loads and Loads of love to You Deva. Samasta Loka Sukhino Bhavantu, Sai, Sai.
Sai Sister Shilpa from India says: Om Shree Sai Nathay Namaha. This happened in 2006 July when I was reading Sai Satcharitra for the first time in my life. While reading (not completed) Sai Satcharitra I had a dream in the night as below. In my dream I visited Dattatreya temple in Sirsi (Karwar District-Karnataka) and I got Prasadam & flowers in the temple from the priest and the priest asked me to distribute flowers to all who were present there. When I woke up in the morning I asked my mother who is Dattatreya till that day I was not knowing who is Dattatreya God. In August 2006, my father underwent surgery and his sister came to see him. She told my father that there is a boy if they are interested they can go for marriage alliance for me and that boy is from Sirsi (Karwar District-Karnataka). My parents took me to Sirsi to meet boy’s family. Suddenly it strike my mind about the dream I had earlier so I went in search of Dattatreya temple, to my surprise the temple was there in the same location as I saw in my dream. Finally my marriage took place in Sirsi (Karwar District-Karnataka) in January 2007. Shree Sai Baba had blessed me in advance for my marriage. I never in my life thought that my marriage will take place in Sirsi because I am born and brought up in Bangalore. I am very ordinary person but still Baba blessed me. I am blessed by Baba many more times after that in a miracle way. Baba please forgive me if I have done any mistake by knowingly or unknowingly. Om Shree Sai Nathay Namaha.
Anonymous Devotee from Europe says: Pranam Hetal Ji and all devotees. Thank you so much for this platform where we can share and talk to Baba through all of you. Pranam to Shri Sai Baba and all the devotees. Dear Baba Jaan, as I promised I am posting my third experience. Dear devotees, the last time I shared with you that my father made new glasses, but they were not fit and my father has an eye problem, so I was really tense about it and so we made a new check-up and after that we were waiting for the results for the new glasses. I was praying and hoping that the glasses come and stay well in my father’s eyes so he can see well. Our dear Baba Jaan and all the Gods heard my prayers and glasses were fine. When I saw my father well and happy I was so glad that only thought of my Dear Baba Jaan and thanked and prayed. Sorry I did not post this experience before. Baba Jaan please accept my love and always be with us and guide us so that we can be on the right track. Protect us always and never leave us. Today I am feeling very restless and have a feeling that something bad is going to happen, but then I close my eyes and tell myself: “Why fear when Baba Jaan is here!” Om Sai Ram. Love You Baba Jaan.
