Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
Sai Sister Chandini from India says: Dear Team, I want to be referred to as Chandini Martin. I am from Bangalore and married to an Army officer Major Martin. I have 4.5 year old son. I work for a Life Science Company in Bangalore. I am a Christian, I love Sai Greetings dear Sai devotees, I am in awe of my dear Sai, I am Christian protestant and I have not had any exposure to any other faith. Many times I wonder how I fell in love with my Sai, trust me I look up to Him so much. In the year 2008, I attended a naming ceremony of my friend’s son, who had a baby after a lot of prayers to Sai this is what she told me. I received a return gift, when I opened it at home it was a small statue of Sai. I was surprised and also frightened how I would keep it at home. But I liked the look of His Face and I never held a statue in my life so I was amazed and at the same time worried if anybody would see it in my room. There was an activity at office about Indian culture, and I took the statue with me and kept it as a decorative item and with an intension of leaving it there so someone can take it if they want. What I did was abandoning the statue.
After a few days I peeped to see if it was there, but it was not. I was glad someone took it, but somehow it left a deep scare in my heart and mind that I abandoned something I owned. I did not feel nice of what I did. In the year 2012 I got married, my husband is an Army officer and 2013 I delivered a baby boy. On Aug 14th 2014, my son developed high fever with seizures, my husband and I literally ran carrying him to the Military hospital, he gained conscience (Allahabad). Later we took him to a bigger hospital. I remember sitting in the jeep, with my son on my lap a distressed mother and worried mother knows no religion but demanded her son wakes up healthy and normal, I was fighting begging God. I turned to see a Picture of Sai hanging in the jeep. My eyes met Sai’s eyes, my guilt of abandoning Him few years back came to my mind, but I said to Him, can You please do something for my son please, my son recovered after a few days in the hospital. Since then my mind was on Sai, those eyes, that picture.
Few days later, while dressing up on a Thursday morning I wore an orange dress the moment I looked at myself in the mirror I remembered one friend of mine who used to wear orange every Thursday as she was a Sai devotee, then a voice I heard in my mind saying “today you will be in front of Me at 8:00 PM” I wondered who said that or was I just dreaming. That evening coincidently we had to go to a Mandir for a family event (Army), I was looking around in the Temple seeing Idols and Photos, suddenly I found myself standing front of a portrait of Sai, checked the time it was 8:00 PM. I was stunned, I walked off and that night narrated everything to my husband. (2015) A big Sai temple was close to our house in Allahabad, one day I told my husband, can we just go in and see, it looks nice. Like a magnet slowly I walked into the temple, removed my foot ware, the chillness of the marble touching my feet and my eyes meeting Baba’s statue, by then I knew I am getting closer to Sai, that day I knew the journey has begun. In the year 2015, I noticed developing lumps in my arm pits, I was obviously scared thinking of the worst, took treatment for a few days in Bangalore and I had to go back to Allahabad. At Allahabad, I went to a hospital and found myself sitting front of a big portrait of Sai, I felt good. The Doctor wanted me to undergo a biopsy, I was worried and tensed. The day before the biopsy I went to the Sai temple mentioned above, and just prayed Baba can You heal me, be with me please. The results came after a few days, I was totally nervous and it was non-cancerous fatty tissues that were developed, Doctor said nothing to worry do yearly mammograms. This experience, then Sai’s portraits in the hospital my visit to the Temple, really stuck deep into my heart and mind. I felt He was around me, He was following me and I was following Him somehow. By then I felt like saying thank You to Baba.
Thereafter, I started going to the Sai temple, I felt nice lighting lamps. Standing front of the Dhuni, and the cooling effect of the marble under my feet I just kept falling in love with devotion to Sai. Daily habit became reading about Sai, researching about Him, reading devotee experiences and I found myself on this blog, trust me I need to read it daily it brings me solace, it tells me that despite the problems we face, there is someone who wants to help us and listen to us. I am now in Bangalore, at Allahabad nobody knew about me going to the temple except my husband and made him promise he does not tell anyone nor get judgemental of me and what I am doing as I do not wish to justify to anyone. Then started the regular dreams each Thursday mornings of me in Sai’s temple and offering flowers to Him. I used to be stressed out thinking what to do? But I chose to follow my dreams, I found a Temple. I go visit Him each time He tells me to in my dreams. One of the remarkable event that made me believe Sai is watching over us, was when our little son that time 2.5 years very naughty, my husband and I were shopping around buying footwear for our son, I got engrossed looking at footwear for myself, suddenly our son ran out on the main road and a speeding car stopped and we turned around to see him next to the car, I swear the way I felt that time was terrible, by the time we caught our son he ran and another auto stopped therefore he missed it twice. People around shouted at us, ridiculed us for being so careless. I just hugged my son and looked up the sky and said thank You God and angles for having mercy on us, suddenly I thought of Sai and remembered it was a Thursday. At the time of this situation, our son was giggling and laughing that he chased us and we found it hard to catch him. The innocence in our son’s eyes, made me wonder how was it that he did not get scared of what just happened?
Sai helped our son from danger, the journey towards devotion continued. I am grateful to Sai for that day. I wonder how I fell in love like this with a Saint with so much devotion being from a different background religiously. Each time I see His statue I feel like crying, there is some mental connect, I cannot describe this to anyone in my family for I will be ridiculed I fear. But I love Him, I have fallen neck deep in the ocean of devotion to Him, I rather just sink in His love than swim out. Recently I felt the need to have that same little statue that I once abandoned. I went to a temple in Bangalore and purchased it. It has been secretly kept in my cupboard. The day I bought the statue it brought me peace within, I felt like a reconciliation for what I did. I like holding it in my hands. The moment my family visits me, first thing I do is to lock my cupboard hide the keys then open the main door for them. What is He to me today? He is in my mind, His Name on my tongue, His Image in my heart and mind. He is like a mentor to me, my Guru, all that He taught or spoke were nice, nothing that I should not admire Him, I found nothing wrong in looking up to Him as my mentor. I pray to Him, I know He intercedes for me. Sai loves me, I enjoy communicating with Him. This is my first post, many more to come, just spacing it out due to the length.
Anonymous Devotee from India says: Hi Hetal ji you are doing great job. I am reading this blog from May 2014. Devotees experiences keeps my faith on Baba alive. I consider Baba as my Grandfather. He always listens to each and every thought of mine. I always feel that Baba is with me. Today I am going to share an experience about my dream. Thank you Hetal ji for giving me this opportunity. One day I got a dream and it is as follows. I was walking towards bus-stop and I saw Baba Temple behind bus-stop. I was thinking whether to go inside or not because my bus is already waiting in the bus-stop. Finally I decided to go inside Temple. I saw Baba on the dais inside big hall like Shiridi Sai Temple. No one was there except me. I went near to Baba’s statue. Baba was surrounded by wall in all the three directions as if He is sitting inside big shelf without door. I wondered why Baba is surrounded by walls. I was praying Him and soon started crying. I saw priest coming near to me. I felt shy that he might see my tears. Priest came near to me and told me that “I like your childish nature and the way you talk”. I was shocked and thought Baba is talking in the form of priest. He started to do Aarti to Baba and he handed me the hand fan that we move in front of Baba. I was doing Seva to Baba and felt happy. I woke up and filled with joy that Baba likes me. But I was confused why Baba is surrounded by wall.
As per my daily routine I used to visit Baba temple before going to office. I used to pray from outside on Thursdays because there will be big queue. On one Thursday after the dream, I went to temple before going to office. I saw the queue and went and stood in the queue thinking that it will move fast and I can leave. But I was getting late. I thought I will come out of the queue. But it is Baba who made me to stand there. I was praying Baba without concentration. I was looking around. It was Deewali time. Temple staff were decorating temple, Arranging wooden support everywhere to light Diyas. Suddenly something told me to look at Baba carefully. When I saw Baba, I was shocked and very happy. Baba is surrounded by wooden planes on three sides like in my dreams. There are decorating wooden walls with Diyas. That is why Baba made me to stand in the queue. Thanks Baba for loving this small devotee so much. Sorry Baba, I am not able to come to Your Temple regularly nowadays. But I know You still love me the same. I have many experiences of Baba. I will share them during my next post. Jai Sai Ram. Om Sai Rakshak Sharanam.
Anonymous Devotee from Australia says: Om Sai Ram to all Sai devotees. I am a small devotee of our Lord Sai Baba. I am very thankful to Hetal ji and entire team for great work. I had many experiences with Baba and all were posted in this site to read and for that i am very thankful to Baba and the team. We are blessed to have such a wonderful place to find all the Sai devotees together in this site and get to know wonderful experiences here. It’s not that all the devotees are blessed at the same time but are definitely blessed at the right time by our dear Lord Baba. Everything we need is faith and patience.
Here is my small experience. I recently gave my exam and I didn’t pass. It’s my third time and felt so bad and lost. Also it added a lot of stress to my pregnancy and was crying all day and night for about a week. I felt even sad when my husband hurt me and my family saying that I don’t care about the money he spent on me for my exams and do nothing. This made everyone worry about me and my career and my family thought my husband is so mean to think like that and money minded. But it’s not like that I feel so about him as I am with him in this country far away from my family. With work stress he might be rude at that time talking about money but he loves me so much. Thanks Baba for giving me my husband. I prayed Baba please clear this misunderstanding between my family and husband. He is not money minded as they think and I know I do have self respect and telling myself that I can recover the money he spent on my exams.
I have totally lost my confidence about the exams here. Please show me my path of career in right way if it’s in India or here in Australia. I don’t want to leave my husband but if to save my career it’s the temporary option. After a week of stress, I became normal again with Baba grace and thought about the baby that I should not have stress anymore as it would affect my baby. Thanks to Sai Baba, He cleared the misunderstanding and made my restless mind calm. Also i am reading Sai Satcharitra story chapters daily to my baby. I believe and have faith that Baba blesses me safe delivery and a healthy happy baby. Om Sai Ram.
Sai Sister Lakshmi from India says: Thanks Hetal ji for creating such a beautiful and amazing blog to share all our experiences about Sai Nana, it increases faith and patience by knowing all the others Sai Leelas . I have posted four experiences previously two of them are published already. There are innumerable experiences where Sai is helping to get rid of all the negative things and go in to the right path with faith and patience. Coming to my latest one, my family has planned a trip to our native place for a relative engagement in our car which was recently bought by Baba’s grace. It was a rainy season. Upto 300 km our travel was smooth, When we stopped car for tea break and after that restarted the car, it was not starting as it was going to be dark we got tensed as we need to go another 200 Kms. After pushing the car for few meter and with Baba’s grace it started and went for 100 Kms. It stopped again. We tried very hard to move it further but no use. Then we called for service man taking help of known persons. The same time it was raining heavily and got dark. We cannot also go outside and ask for help as it was raining heavily.
I prayed to Baba to please help to get out from this bitter situation. By Baba’s grace the car went to mechanic shop and it stopped there and we changed the battery and it started, went for another 70 Kms and stopped there completely. Again I prayed Baba for help as it was already midnight, one of my uncle took a car from our native place to the place where we are and we reached home safely in the night with Baba’s grace. Thank You Sai nana for helping us. I got afraid as it may cost heavy for repair as we cannot afford much. I prayed to Baba please not to make more than 10000 as we cannot afford more than that. Baba heard our prayer and the repair cost of the car is exactly 10000. Thank You Baba for being with us in all hard situations. You are the creator of our lives. Please make us to go in right path with faith and patience. Thank You is a small word to express how gratitude we are. Please Baba be with us and make us more spiritual persons rather than thinking of physical things. Shri Satchidhanandha Sai Nath Maharaj Ki Jai. Jai Sai Ram.
Anonymous Devotee from Canada says: Om Sai Ram! I am a simple devotee of Sai Baba. My first experience was published recently and I was extremely pleased with it. Thank you Hetal Ji and team for all your noble efforts. Through the entire year, this site has been my buddy. This would be my fourth posting. I would like to share 2 small experiences – 1. My sister lives away from me and is working. I usually talk to her regularly. One day, I called her but she didn’t take the call. Upon a number of attempts, there was no response. Although I knew that at times her phone goes on silent mode, I was a little tensed and I prayed to Baba that she should be fine. I tried again after this and she took the call this time. Baba is always there for us, Baba is my only saviour at all times.
One day I was making tea but was so engrossed in something that I gulped hot water accidentally. It was extremely foolish of me to do so. As a result, I could not eat or chew properly and it also hurt a lot. I prayed to Baba and applied Udi at the burn area in my mouth. Although this aggravated the pain at first, the pain almost disappeared within minutes after that. This is Baba’s doing, thank You Sai. Please be with us always. Baba, You know what’s in my mind, please help Sai. Koti Koti Pra
