Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
Anonymous Sai devotee from USA says: Om Sri Sainathaya Namah. It gives me great pleasure to share my experience with you all through this site. Firstly I want to humbly thank our Baba for everything. I have come across this site few months back when I was going through a very bad phase of my life. While desperately searching for solace and comfort I stumbled upon this site. I cannot tell how much this site and the experiences shared by many have helped me in rekindling my faith, offering me hope, strength and peace. I am 52 year old living in US and have been Baba’s devotee. Growing up in India, my town used to have a Shirdi Sai Baba temple. This I am talking about in 1960’s rarely when Baba temples were there anywhere except in Shirdi. I rarely visited the temple which was on the banks of river Thungabadra. I heard stories from my grandparents that in 60’s Baba came in dream of someone and they found wealth to build the temple. It’s a beautiful temple. On the same street there used to be many other temples. I used to visit all those but rarely visited Sai Baba’s temple. Fast forward in time by God’s grace, I went to good schools and had a very comfortable, successful life and landed in Mumbai in 1980s. I took a trip to Shirdi one day and since then I used to see miracles small and big. Whenever I used to think of something and pray, it used to happen without any fail. I realized Baba is the one who can safely, securely and successfully take me through my life’s journey. I believed in Him so much that nothing could stop me in achieving my higher goals. While I had a plan to succeed there were lessons waiting for me to be taught. In the course of journey because of success I may have become arrogant and addicted to bad habits like smoking and drinking. None the less I used to devotedly pray to Baba every day, worked hard and the life went on without any major issues. Everything was well and good and I was having the best life with good family, friends, work, income, achievements, and recognition with Baba’s grace.
Everything came to a standstill with an incident. On the night of June 18th two years back (2014) when I returned from work I suddenly was not feeling well. I was sweating. I started vomiting with acute pain in abdomen and back. I was taken to hospital for emergency. At the hospital they checked everything and thought it was gastroenteritis and gave me intravenous medicine. Also they took CT scan of my abdomen and they found a suspicious tumour. I think going to emergency was also a blessing because if I had gone to a normal doctor he may have just prescribed medicine and I wouldn’t have known about the tumour. The doctors had asked me to see a gastroenterologist for abdominal pain and another specialist for the tumour. I left the hospital next day morning and went and saw my primary doctor. He said the tumour is nothing to worry about, it is common. For the abdominal pain, I saw a specialist and he recommended a procedure and gave some medicine which relieved my pain and eventually all became normal. However, the tumour thing was still bothering me in the back of my mind. I wanted to get another scanning done.
So in February of last year (2015) I visited my doctor and I asked him about getting another scan for tumour. He gave me a prescription and I had a scan done. It showed growth of the tumour indicating something very serious. I felt the ground under my feet started caving in. A biopsy and further scans only revealed it’s indeed life threatening. In this time of despair and hopelessness I came across this site where I started reading about devotees’ experiences. They offered hope, miracle, strength and peace. On September 24th of last year, I had a major surgery lasting 6 hours. While the surgery was happening, my wife said she was just continuously praying to Baba. She waited in the waiting room by herself. Till today she says that she doesn’t know how she was able to be by herself in a waiting room without anyone to talk to while the surgery was happening. She kept reading Sai Satcharitra throughout my surgery and recovery. Though the surgery was successful, I and my wife were mentally exhausted thinking about the worst that may occur. The only thing that is keeping us going is our increased and renewed faith in our Sai Deva.
After six months of surgery in April of this year I followed up with scans to see if there were any signs of disease. Just before I went for the follow up scans I came across the following message with the beautiful picture of Baba on this site – It said “Don’t Cry Because It’s Over. Smile New Joy Is Coming Ahead”. Actually me and my wife forgot to smile and laugh for the last two years. This message meant a lot to me which I found on this site and I have saved it for my remembrance. As soon as I saw this message on that day before I went for scanning it gave me so much relief. It is as if Baba communicated to me through your site. I also said to myself I would share this experience of mine with you all. The scans came out clean and I am leading a normal life. I want to thank everyone who shared their experiences. They truly helped me in overcoming some of the worst moments and emotions in my life. Also in due course of this experience, I developed patience, lost my arrogance, freed from many bad habits. A lesson learnt and I am greatly indebted to Sai Baba. May Sai Baba bless us all. Sainatha, please accept our pranams and prayers –Wish us all with good health, happiness and knowledge. Jai Sairam.
Sai Devotee Meena from USA says: My Life was really tough since 8 months. I was waiting to get the job and get married but nothing was in place. I completely surrendered to Baba’s feet from 10 months and I should be thankful to Him because, He came into my life during my tough time. I read Satcharitra and from then I can feel His presence in my life. He came to my house in the form of calendar for the new year. I came to USA and was looking for job since 7 months but no luck. I performed Sri Sai Divya pooja and it did not help me to get a job, may be due to my bad karmas or may be lack of dedication. Finally I did nav guruvar vrat and read Satcharitra again in 7 days. I could feel Baba’s presence, He was protecting me each and every day all through my tough times. And these 7 months I became very close to Baba. I used to read His stories and chant His name and cry before Him. Because, I felt that there is no source except Him and I believed strongly that He would only can take me out from this pit.
I strongly believed that something good was going to happen after Guru Pournima. And it did happen. One day Ganesha appeared in my dream and found out the meaning of the dream online, I had been delaying sankatahara chathurthi fasting and pooja since many months. I observed fasting on Sankatahara chathurthi and got my interview scheduled just the next day of Ganesh chaturthi i.e. Tuesday(Hanuman’s day(Hanuman also appeared in my dream in my tough time)and I came to know the partial feedback of my interview on Wednesday which is Ganesha’s day and final result on Thursday. I felt blessed because, all Gods helped me in getting a job. Trust Him completely, do whatever you can do and leave it to Him. He will definitely take care of you. He will grant everyone’s wishes for sure. Tough phase makes you cry, shout and you will think how to get out of that phase but nothing and nobody helps you except Baba. I have experienced it and letting you people know that everyone will have tough times but be rigid and chant Baba’s name it may take time to get out of it but utilize that tough time to remember and worship Baba. It is all about patience and faith. Trust me nothing works out in your tough times only Baba’s blessings will help you to get what you want. Everyone should go through the tough phase but if you want that phase to be smooth and small then we have to surrender to Him. Finally I got my job on Thursday. So it is completely a miracle of Baba.
Anonymous Sai Devotee from India says: Sai Ram. I am just a small soul being protected by Baba. I don’t know where to start because lot of experiences with equal importance are there in my life but in each of them Baba assured me that He takes care of my life. I first came to know about Baba during my +2(Intermediate). He completely changed my life since then. There are many, many divine wonders in my life after Baba came into my life. I would like to share some unexplained miracles with all.
Whenever I go to Shirdi or read Satcharitra Baba used to bless me in my dreams. Once after returning from Shirdi I was taking rest in my room(hostel). My roommate went to class and I was alone. I was in deep sleep (more or less like a dead body) and suddenly someone slapped on my feet. I just woke up and thought it was my roommate. I suddenly remembered that he went to class. So I got panicked and checked my room completely, there was no one. He just gave a sample of His presence at that time. On another day I had early morning class, I kept alarm to ring at 8:00 but I was lazy and didn’t wake-up and continued to sleep for another two hours. At 10:00 suddenly my alarm started ringing. I was in deep sleep so I thought to stop it, but actually it was not my mobile’s alarm ringing. My mobile was just silent but I heard the sound. I was bit amazed and realised that Baba wants me to wake-up and go to the class. He was there to take care of my minute things. He is forever, just remember Him and trust Him wholeheartedly. He will take care. Sai Ram…Sai Ram..Sai Ram.
Anonymous Sai Devotee from USA says: I live in the USA. This is my fourth post on this website, two of them have already been posted. As always thank you very much Hetalji for creating such divine platform. The experience that I am going to share here today is a very small one but very close to my heart. I have grown up watching my mom pray to Baba every time that is how I and my sister came close to Baba. I’ve been to India last year and visited Shirdi twice. I’ve grown more close to Baba since past 9 months during which one day I was talking to my mom on the phone while watching Baba’s live darshan. During our conversation I told my mom that if I were in Shirdi today I would spend some time looking at Baba from top to bottom because when I’ve been to Shirdi last year it was rather a quick darshan for me, even I didn’t make an effort to stay and look at Him for as long as I can. Suddenly the camera started zooming to Baba’s eyes. I was just watching, not knowing what was happening and the camera just moved from Baba’s eyes to Baba’s toes slowly exactly the way I wanted to have His darshan that very moment. Exactly the way I had described it to my mom. With this experience Baba just told me that no matter where you are, if you want to see Him badly He will give you His darshan exactly the way you want it to have. Thank You very much Baba. Please take care of every one who is devoted to You and whose only hope is You.
Anonymous Sai Devotee from India says: Today I want to share a wonderful experience with all the Sai brothers and sisters here, hoping that it will give at least few of you all, a new hope and faith on our dear God Sai Baba. We were staying in US for past couple of years, always we used to have some visa issues, but it used to get cleared and it was going on well, but suddenly we had to face a situation which was terrible for the whole family. We had undergone a lot of stress because of it, but we had kept our faith on our dear Sai maa, begged Him to forgive us and show us the right path and to stay with us always, in this life and in any life after. That was a testing time for us. We literally didn’t know which step to take further, that’s when I started to do Nav Guruvar Vrat.
I got to hear about that from a friend of mine, but after reading the experiences here from this site, I somehow felt like to do the vrat, may be now I feel Sai Himself has made me to do the vrat. Once I started doing the vrat, slowly week after week, we stared to see the path that Sai was showing. We kept our burdens on Him and took that path which Sai showed us. Slowly our worries were cleared and we got peace of mind, by the blessings of our Sai maa. Only thing was, we had to have faith and patience, as is told by Sai Baba always, to have faith on Him and patience and wait. So on this note of sharing my experience here, what I want to tell you all Sai Baba devotees who are in trouble is, do have faith and patience, true devotion on Him, and He will show the path which is right for us for sure. Thanks a lot to the team running this site; you are blessed because Sai maa Himself is making you guys do this wonderful job for His devotees. Yes, all in all, this site is a modern day Sai Satcharitra book. Om Sairam Shri Sairam Jaya Jaya Sairam. Please bless us that we have our faith and devotion at Your feet always and always. Do forgive us for our mistakes and please be with us all the time Sai maa.
Sai Devotee Thanalakshmi S from India says: Thank you all for this opportunity. Hope Baba’s blessings are always with us. I became Baba’s child from 2013. My friend told about Sai baba. After that I started believing in our Sai maa. I was in very critical condition and my husband’s business was full of problems. I started Sai vrat .On the first day I was saved by Baba from a big accident. Thanks a lot Baba. You saved me and family. I really understood Baba is there always with His children. After completion of first vrat my financial problems were resolved and we started Sivasai agency with Baba’s grace. Thank You Sai pa. Please be with us.
