Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
Anonymous Devotee from USA says: Pranams to the lotus feet of my dear Sainath. This is His intent in me posting this experience. Hetal ji, I am very impressed with the blessed work you are doing by maintaining this blog, It is a moral and emotional boost to many devotees and you are such a blessed soul. I have experienced numerous miracles of Sai Baba in my life. I first went to His Temple when I was in 10th grade and had been constantly His devotee. However, over the recent years few experiences in my life made me much more closer to Him and my life has been blessed by Him in many ways. I constantly feel His presence all through out the day and night. I live a more confident stress free life because of Baba’s presence in my life. To write, I have experienced several miracles, where Baba truly showed His presence in my life. I bow to His lotus feet while writing this miracles. I am posting a recent one which enhanced my life in the most recent days.
I am married and living in the US for last several years and I have two children and work full time in IT. My experience would be very long. Please bear with me. Please kindly forgive me for any mistakes Baba since this is my first experience of posting this miracle. It is elaborate because I wanted to mention with all the details Baba showed His presence by helping in most tough course I have taken and helped me in getting a degree by introducing me to the most wonderful people in the form of faculty at the university. I did my bachelors in India long back and suddenly I felt like I should continue my education here in the US in order to purse Masters degree. Regular bachelors in India is three years while it is four years here in the US. In order for people with non four year degree, they have to study the extra year to get a four year degree to pursue masters degree in the US. Though, I have always wanted to get that and tried a few times, I was not able to complete with family commitments and a full time IT job all throughout last several years. In the year 2014, I was rejected a job in the last minute after completing all the formalities due to lacking a 4 year degree. I was very disappointed and felt the time has come to pursue this degree from here and finish it. With lot of push from my husband, he forcefully applied to the university, the same one where I had pursued few courses in the past when I just moved to US after marriage.
Initially, I was reluctant to go back to the same university due to some old, bad memories, nothing to do with that university in particular but (some people I had interacted during that time frame in my life who have caused immense pain to me and almost a night mare which I could never come out when I did those initial courses. However, I didn’t have lot of options since I had all my India transcripts and some course credits there and didn’t want to try new place again and start from scratch. With all seriousness, I went to the same place. I had the most amazing experience this time, fully with Baba’s grace. When I first stepped in to the place, I was not ready at all to do this but after having a few initial conversations, I was redirected to an accelerated program office for working professionals in the same university which I was totally un aware of. I was so worried that I would have to study three, four years again to get a degree from the US, That accelerated program was just a blessing for me which is also another miracle of my Sainath. When I went to the office, I was totally in a confused state as what I would do and what major I could pursue and what degree I would get. All I asked her was that I need a degree from here by just studying an year more, using all my India course credits. Amazingly, the advisor put together all my course work from India and that was a lot of study I have done and some courses from the same university and requested for few course waivers and gave me an academic plan which was like getting the degree in exactly 16 months. Also, I had the educational evaluation done long back after I moved to the US. That plan seemed too good to be true. I was able to use all my credits from India as well as from this place which I have done in the past.
There was one particular course I did which was very tough on me which was statistics. My major in the past was sciences and I was always afraid of Math and Stat. This course was especially challenging and weekly tests were there which I was very scared of. I got pretty sick with flu, fever and cold which continued back to back and I had to deal with emotional issues personally I did my first three tests really bad and didn’t have any clue that I would pass this course. That, too an accelerated course of 8 weeks and classes on 2 days a week to get the degree in the set time frame. One day after finishing my midterm exam, I came home at night and I was very disappointed with the way I did the exam. The classes were from 6 PM to 9 PM in the evening, I used to leave home at morning 7:30 AM -drop my child at the bus for school and leave to work all day for 8 hours and the drive to the university at 4:40 Pm and go to class at 5:30 PM and then come back at 10 PM at night. It was such a hectic schedule with every point of destination being 40 minutes drive without traffic, I would come home on some days at 10 PM, clean the kitchen and home and then finish homework from my other classes. I used to take two courses every 8 weeks session. It was insanely busy and hectic routine especially with a full time IT job, family, kids and social life with friends. Most people in abroad know what life will be like here.
When I was sleeping one night after the midterm exam which I failed miserably, I saw a vision like Baba was sitting some where with wooden logs on His head. It was like a sketch picture. If I am an artist, I would have sketched it. With in a minute, Baba was able to get up and stand straight with some logs. That dream/vision made me interpret like Baba is going to surely take my stress off from my head in the form of this course meaning He would help me pass this course. After this, remaining all the exams, I was exceptionally focussed and I did extremely well. The professor himself was astonished seeing my improvement from almost three failed tests to complete A’s and B’s. I worked hard but Baba was there every minute with me and took away all the tension before each exam so I could focus better and do the exam well. I was surprised myself seeing the result and I was able to complete the course with a B- since the course grade is the cumulative of all the tests which is fairly good and amazing when compared to having to repeat the course and loosing time and money. The professor was very good and helped me a lot to understand the concept. Not only this one, I had the most wonderful faculty who guided me through out this process in all the courses. I had lot of positive influence and encouragement from my professors and I always tried to do my best in all the courses, despite family situations, busy schedule and work schedules. I did the best courses that suit my work life and I did very well in almost all of the classes I had taken with A’s. I came across amazing people and finished my degree in the set time frame.
Everything I did gave me immense satisfaction and joy, that I missed all these years. Some people have personally touched me and influenced me so positively that I have the highest regard for them which will continue for the rest of my life. I always felt that Baba had introduced these amazing people to me to make me successful and be filled with positive energy. Two weeks back my commencement happened and really that was my best and most memorable day in my life, which I will cherish forever as a sweet memory. It was not because of the accomplishment but the feeling of satisfaction of a job well done miraculously within given time, in-spite of all the hurdles in the form of family, work. I accelerated my courses wherever possible like taking a three week winter intersession course and wrote some CLEP exams to get a course waiver. I am so much more happier and confident now. My previous experiences and bad memories have been replaced my wonderful memories of good relationships with people, success, good grades and I have the highest regard and personal connection with the university and the faculty.
I am now applying for grad school to do my masters and I am so much looking forward to being in grad school in the next couple of months. I am sure Baba will help me sail through this as well and I will sure post the miracle after I finish my grad school. Thank You so much Baba. Whatever joy, I have experienced is a truly Baba’s blessing which is the best birthday gift my Baba had given to me. I never realized this would give such immense happiness and satisfaction that nothing else gave me in my life. I celebrated my birthday joyfully, after clearing this major roadblock after years and years of postponing this degree. Jai Sainath and Pranams to the lotus feet. Jai Jai Sai Ram! Devotees, please surrender yourself completely to the lotus feet of Sai Baba and He will help you through every hurdle in life. My life is much more of a joy and blessing compared to my past, truly with Baba’s grace. Trust Him fully and surrender and all your problems, long cherished wishes and everything will be fulfilled. Jai Sai Ram.
Anonymous Devotee from India says: First of all thank you Hetal Ji for coming up with this amazing blog and thanks to all those who maintain and edit the blog in an amazing way. Now I will move on to my experience. When I was in my 7th grade, in the year 2007, I had an amazing experience, though I realized it a bit later. So, my school had a system of sending the monthly fee to the house address in the name of the head of the family (Father’s) and not the student’s name. One month, when we received the bill, I was furious to find that my dad’s name (Sriram) was replaced with another one (Sairam). At that time, I wasn’t a devotee of loving Baba. Expect for the fact that, my dad’s elder sister from Mumbai sent a copy of Sai Satcharitra to us. Since it was in the original Marathi version, we couldn’t read it. Because, Tamil is our mother tongue. So, that was all the information I had about Baba. The next day, I took my dad to the front office at school and asked them to rectify the mistake. They promised to do so. I studied in that school till 2010, the mistake was never resolved. It was Baba’s way of saying that He is the head of the family; He is my Dad who will never leave us.
In the year 2009, my dad had court and law problems, caused by his company and was put up in jail for a month. We were very depressed and used to visit my aunt once in a while. During this time, my aunt, I and my mom went to a shop for getting some stationary items for my little cousins. Mom saw the idol of Baba and she badly wanted to purchase it. But lack of money made her to hesitate. My aunt too disagreed. So we paid the bill for rest of the items and went home. When we reached home, wonders of wonder, Baba’s idol, which mom wanted to purchase was in there. I immediately checked the bill to see the cost of the idol and i couldn’t believe it wasn’t even added. Mom got closer to Baba and began worshipping Him. After a month, dad was released, but very soon he died of heart attack. It was very devastating. I and my mother underwent endless problems. We thought our life was going to end. The troubles started in 2009 and went on till the mid of 2014. In between I got into bad friendships. None of them had any good impact in my life. It affected my life in all possible ways, especially my studies. I and my mom drifted apart for some reason so that made me to seek attention and love elsewhere. But, I am grateful that, I came out of all that safely with the blessings of my Baba.
Baba wanted me to finish my Karma and pull me towards His Feet which I did. Baba’s ways are enigmatic. He alone knows what works for His devotees. It’s unbelievable how much Baba loves me. I need to make a note that I began reading Sai Satcharitra (English version) in the year 2014, in the month of June. My wish was of course fulfilled. That’s when I got closer to Baba’s wonderful feet. The miracles of reading and listening to His life stories are wonderful. Anything is possible with the love and blessings of Baba. Now I and my mom are living happily with little financial commitments but I am sure it will all get solved very soon. I can’t imagine how my life would be without Baba. He is the oxygen that I inhale. My experience with Baba is endless. But I will save it for later. I will very soon upload my other experiences too. I request the devotees to remember Shraddha and Saburi. Baba loves His devotees to an extreme extent. He will never leave us. He is right beside us. Peace Be To All.
Anonymous Devotee from US says: Hi hetal ji I am Baba’s devotee since 2000. I live in US I have 2 daughters. Recently I was experiencing headaches but I didn’t give much attention to that I thought maybe due to hormones and I ignored it. Then when I went 2 to 3 doctors they said everything is normal and I had some issues with my breast then they scheduled mammogram and ultrasound everything normal asked me to see them after 1 year. Then symptoms didn’t change then again on Thursday I went to Doctor then she ordered an ultrasound there the radiologist told something is not good and then ordered a biopsy of the lump. I wasn’t even in my thoughts I guessed it would be cancer and then after 2 days results came I have breast cancer. Then they scheduled for MRI, it showed lymph node involvement. I was shattered all those days, all I did was praying to Baba and reading hanuman Chalisa, than another biopsy confirmed node negative. Then we scheduled for surgery and before the surgery in my dream, Baba took away the pain. I could literally feel it. After surgery I was diagnosed with stage 1 breast cancer and now I will be starting my chemo I have left everything to Baba and hoping for the best, just leave everything to Baba, He will take care of everything. Om Sai Ram.
Anonymous Devotee from US says: Hi. Om Sai Ram to everyone. I am a great devotee of Sai Baba. Baba is always with me all the time, without Him, i don’t even imagine my life. Whenever i utter Om Sai Ram Baba, He helps me. I have had many experiences with Sai over years. Baba first of all I would like to thank You so much for being with me whenever I needed You. I would like to share my first miracle that happened when I was small. My dad business got loss and my parents sold all the jewellery and assets. The situation was really bad that my mother doesn’t want to step out of the house. On one Thursday I asked my mom to go to Sai Mandir as I told you, she doesn’t want to step out, she said No. That night I felt really bad and cried a lot and asked Baba by net Thursday all the problems had to solve and we should come to temple. Next day I told my mom that everything goes well by next Thursday and we all will go to Sai Mandir. That miracle happened all was set by next Thursday and my mother was very happy. We started seeing improvement in my dad’s business. I was very happy and we all went to Baba Mandir and thanked Him. This is my first miracle they are many such miracles where Baba showed me a path. Om Sai Ram.
Anonymous Devotee from US Says: Dear Devotees, I feel blessed to be part of this community of Sai Devotees. Sai has always executed that which initially seemed impossible by giving hints about what would happen. We are in the process of selling our home and then one Thursday, while at the Sai Temple – the buyer’s agent called up asking if they could view the house. I was very happy and thankful to Baba. Of all the callers we had I knew that we would be the one buying our house, because I got a call in the temple and have Baba’s Aashirwad. True to His word, There were other people making offered, but he was the only person who responded well. Today after some delay we got confirmation that all the contingencies have been removed and we are ready to proceed. I had asked Baba that this should happen by today, and just the same way. It happened today and I wanted to share my experience. Thank You Baba for listening.
Anonymous Devotee from India says: Om Sai Ram to all Sai devotes! Thanks much Baba. My dad was suffering from fever for the past two days. Doctor suspected the fever symptoms could be the typhoid. I was really worried after hearing this. They took few tests. I was praying continuously that my dad should be in perfect condition, there should be no symptoms of typhoid. I prayed Baba that i will share my experience. Thank You so much Baba.
