Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
Anonymous Devotee from USA says: Om Sai Ram. This is my second experience on this blessed site. My first experience about my health issues as a Masters student and being a given a second chance purely miraculously by school to continue, was published on Feb 7, 2017 with Sai’s grace. I mentioned in that post that once I got the second chance to continue my Masters, that was the turning point which helped me focus more on my treatment, while working towards getting my graduate degree. None of it was easy, with trips to doctors and appointments, I could not fully focus on school but with supportive Head of the Department (who, I have no doubt, was Baba Himself or an angel sent by Him-he actually made an effort to discuss my case with my doctors to determine what allowance I would require and I have known only very few professors to do that) and many supportive people, I managed it.
As part of my last 3 credits to complete my course requirements, I had an internship for 3 months. I wanted to look for jobs as well, but with managing my treatment and my health, while working, I was not getting enough time or mental energy to search and apply. By this time, to pay for my treatment and school, I had taken loans from friends which amounted to more than multiple times what others normally pay for their masters. My family had seen me for so long not being able to complete education due to my health that they did not really believe me when I told them I was going to be graduating. I was approaching the end of the internship and if I did not find a job soon, I would have to leave the country. I wanted to stay and work mainly so that I could pay off my loans from friends. That’s another miracle of how many friends helped out and loaned me thousands of dollars for years without any interest. While it was very challenging to ask others for money, I am still blown away by how Sai helped me through others in coming out of this. My family was asking me to book tickets back to India because I think they thought that, after all these years of not being well, I would not be able to keep the job, even if I got it.
So, here is where my Sai Maa shows His presence again- the HOD mentioned to me one day, towards the end of my internship, about this company that few of our alumni work in and mentioned that they have an open position. He told me I should rush and send in my resume. For that day, despite being unwell, I sent in my resume and applied immediately, I really do not know how- it’s like Sai Maa pushed me to. In a few days, the company scheduled for a face to face interview and being sick on the day of the interview, I had to request to reschedule it and Maa made them agree without any issues. Finally, Baba made me go to the interview where I had a written exam for 3-4 hours and in person interview with two people for an hour. For someone with anxiety and depression, it is miraculous how Sai Maa made me perform in the interview. I spent the next two weeks very tensed and not knowing if I would get the job, I was extremely anxious especially because I had all the loans to pay off. I spent those two weeks, crying and nervous, so nervous that I could not even pray properly.
And then, one morning, I got the call from the company offering me the job- I was in tears and grateful, to say the least and part of me could not believe it. I got my starting date and I had to reschedule my first day because I was unwell. But I started going to work and went for a whole week, then a whole month, and 6 months and so on. It was extremely difficult and I lived like my health treatment and my job were the only things in life I had to focus on. I could not afford to spend time on anything else. But Baba gave me a raise after 1 year. and a promotion after 2 years. This month, I completed almost 5 years in my full time job and my family and I cannot believe Baba’s grace in bringing me here, I still have to work on my health and have had extremely trying phases for the last 5 years, but I was able to work and pay my loans. I am only left with 5% of my loan left now to pay off, so I do not really have much savings yet. I try my best to give in charity and have been giving even when paying my loans off, even if that meant foregoing my comforts. I pray to Sai to make me give more. I am getting ready to work towards a job change now and I pray that Baba gives me a good opportunity and uses me to help His children. Deva, guide our thoughts, feelings, words, actions to give to and bless life through us. May Sai Bless you all.
My one more experience is: My first experience ended with mentioning how I was dealing with problems in my personal life and praying to Sai for the same. This was a time when I was talking to someone and had begun to really like him. We spent hours talking and we seemed to get along so well, we seemed so compatible. I was getting really attached to him, when he told me, out of the blue, that there was someone else in his life and did not want to mislead me. This pulled the ground under my feet, to say the least. I had just gotten off medication, and this was so painful that I had to go back on medication to support myself. He was not even willing to explain and tell me what really was going on, and after a week or so, while I was going through hell, I did not really try to know, either. I started praying to Sai to give me relief and bring him back to me. I started with Nav Guruvar Vrat, and within few weeks he got in touch with me, I was very happy. I then got to know that he was actually talking to other people when talking to me and making it sound like we were exclusive. He sounded very apologetic and guilty and I wanted to forgive him. However, he was still confused and I, being attached still, was trying to be accepting. Through the heart wrenching months of seeing his confusion, and not knowing why I suffered for years with health issues and then was facing personal issues too and praying incessantly to Sai to make this work, I kept doing the Vrat for the second time, did Satcharitra Parayan twice, Sidha Mangala Stotra Parayana and Sai Divya Pooja. Through all these months and the frustration, Sai taught me one thing more than anything else- He taught me to change my prayers from – “Please make this work with this person” to “Please bring whom You want for me in my life and bless us to be together”.
Like all of us, I kicked and screamed and fought against that surrender but He brought me to realizing it. It was very hard to pray for that even after realizing it but something made me see that, that’s the only way to live- with His blessings and aligned with what He wants for us. As humans we tend to seek control, but the only one in control is our Sai, and we are all alive because of it. He is my Father, my all- I cannot tell Him what to do for me, I can request but, ultimately, my well being is in surrendering to His will. I started praying not for this person, but for whoever Maa wants in my life, and Him to bless us with a good, peaceful union. As all of this was happening, I was meeting other people, being torn in my heart (the person I was praying for originally was not with me and was not even clear whether he wanted to be with me). There was one person I started talking with and originally did not think we would be a good match because we grew up in different countries. We met, but I was not enthusiastic before meeting. By the end of the meeting, however, Sai Maa made me see, how there was a chance of us getting along well. I came back thinking I have to give this a chance. Since then, I kept asking Sai Maa for clarity and peace and to show me who He wants for me. I kept spending more time with the other person and the more we spent time, the more Baba made me see that he was a great person and that we would be a great match. There was no confusion from his side, and he was as clear as I was.
After months of being in a relationship with him, we expressed our love for each other and with Baba’s grace, we decided to get married and when we told our parents, they happily agreed. With Sai Mouli’s blessings, we got married this year. We went to Shirdi as a newly married couple to take our Maa’s blessings. This to me is nothing short of a miracle- the most moving part for me. When starting Sai Divya Pooja, I prayed to Him to give me happiness in my personal and after weeks of it, for Udyapan Pooja, my boyfriend/fiancé surprised me by coming home for the Udyapan and sitting beside throughout the puja and helping me by giving flowers for Ashtotara etc. I had tears in my eyes, remembering what I begged my Sai Maa for – for peace in my personal life and how He showed me? He remembers even smallest details of His children prayers- by making my fiancé come to my house for the Udyapan as a surprise and having him beside me for it. I tear up even now as I am writing it. It is like Sai Maawas saying ‘I remember what you asked for on the first day of starting the vrat, I your pain and your tears, and I want you to be happy’. It was very painful but He showed me that it is best to pray to make us surrender and for what He wants for us because He knows best. He did really pick the better person for me. What do we know, after all? He is the knower and the Doer of all. I am off of medication for my health now with Baba’s grace (I did not know if I ever would be able to get to that state- this is for another post about Sai’s endless miracles). Sai is carrying me through the withdrawal symptoms and while it is tough, He has given me a partner who loves me and appreciates me in the darkest of my moments. I know that He chose the person I needed. Om Sai Ram- bless us all Sai.
Sai Brother Hitesh from India says: Om Sai everyone. I am from Vadodra, Gujarat. I can’t understand how to introduce myself in the context of beloved Sai Baba. I am so much overwhelmed with the love I have got from Baba though I don’t deserve it. I can only say that I have got tremendous amount of attention, care, love from Baba without any condition. I have heard the unconditional love of God but experience of this pure love has been made possible in my life only by Sai Baba. My first post in this blog has been put on August 6, 2017. I am sharing link of it here. http://www.shirdisaibabaexperiences.org/2017/08/shirdi-sai-baba-miracles-part-1712.html. The previous post was regarding IELTS exam which was necessary for Canada student visa. I got high band in it with the blessing of Baba and now I am very glad to post here that I have also got Canada visa. I was continuously praying Sai Baba to give me visa on the Thursday to show His willingness regarding my this step because I was not willing to go Canada. It was my insecurity regarding job, career etc which was pushing me to go to Canada for better future. By heart, I was not ready to leave India and our culture. But Baba has been always there in my life to guide, to protect me and I got Canada visa on 27 July and the day was Thursday. Yes, Baba did another miracle in my life. Sai Baba was part and parcel of my visa process at each stage. He did miracle at each stage.
1) I got admission letter of Canadian college on Thursday though I was jobless since last 2 years. 2) I spoke about Shirdi in speaking test of IELTS though I had prepared to speak about Dubai. I got emotional due to attachment with Sai Baba and started to speak on Shirdi still I got overall 7 band. 3) I prayed to Baba to give me visa decision on the Thursday. And I got Canada visa on 27 July, 2017 which was Thursday. However, I was shocked on the day I got visa as I was not prepared by heart to leave India. I didn’t tell about visa at home also till 14-15 days. I was speechless and shocked. I couldn’t figure out what was happening with me. Finally, I decided not to go to Canada. I can’t say here how I decided not to go Canada. Gradually, I also started to attend weekly Bhagvatam class in nearby ISKCON temple. I didn’t go to Shirdi also though I got visa. However, after one month I went to Shirdi to express my gratitude to Baba and to ask forgiveness for being sceptical and for my mistake to go to Shirdi so late. I prayed there only to give me Bhakti and Seva of Lord Krishna. It was Saturday when I was in Shirdi. I reached Vadodra on Sunday morning and went to ISKCON to attend class of Bhagvatam and at the end of class Prabhu ji (speaker) announced for some volunteers to serve Prasad etc and I got opportunity to become volunteer. Thus, Baba fulfilled my this prayer within 24 hours.
I still consider Sai Baba as my Guru. From Him only I felt what is pure love. I have many times forgotten Baba after getting what I have prayed still He never left me. Whenever I needed Him, He came to rescue me and believe me He has always given me more than I asked to Him. Just because of these experiences, I have become so positive that even in drastic situation I remain calm and confident after praying Baba because even my logical mind had stopped to argue with my faith in Baba. Baba, You know how much I love You. Please forgive me. I know that I don’t deserve Your love still You are so merciful that You have been holding my hand since my college days. Baba, show me the path ahead. I am sorry Baba and I love You from my bottom of heart. Thank you Hetal ji for this wonderful platform. Thank You all devotees. Your posts have helped me in my difficult time to be positive and fearless. May Sai Nath shower His blessings and love on all of you. Love You Sai Baba.
Anonymous Devotee from India says: Om Sai Ram. Thanks to Hetal ji for providing this beautiful page to us to share our experiences with Sai Baba children. Already I shared many experiences in this page. This is my recent experience. I did not have children even after years of marriage. After five years with lot struggles finally Baba blessed me and I conceived with medical treatment. In pregnancy time Baba took care of me every second. My husband was not taking care of me. I am a working woman. In this struggle time Baba protected me and my Pregnancy. After nine months delivery date was near. I had lot of stress and fear. I prayed Baba please be with me. I pray to Baba If I came home with child healthy, I will share my experience in this page. Of course in case we did not share our experiences, still in that time also Baba will always be with His children. With Baba’s blessings I gave birth to a baby girl without any health and money problems. Baba was taking care of Everything. I came home happily with my child.
Second experience is me and my family members were thinking about to do barasala function of my baby. I prayed to Baba to please do the function without any problems with my in-laws and relatives. And I pray Baba to come to Your baby child’s function. With Baba’s blessings, function went smoothly and happily and everybody was happy and satisfied. We came home from function hall in the evening. Me and my relatives were talking. Suddenly my aunty gave me Udi and Prasad from Shirdi. She had been to Shirdi recently. I was shocked. I forgot about Baba’s invite. Really I am very happy because Baba blessed my child by sending Udi and Prasad. My baby’s name is also clubbed with Sai name. Thank You so much Baba for being with me. Please hold my hand in every situation. Om Sai Ram. Anantha Koti Brahmand Nayak Rajadhi Raja Yogiraj Parabrahma Sri Sachidanand Samartha Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai.
Anonymous Devotee from USA says: Om Sai Ram! Hi Hetal ji and team. Thank you once again for this wonderful platform where we can read and share Sai Baba experiences. I have shared few more experiences earlier and thanks for posting them. I was very tensed and nervous all through my pregnancy. Doctors here scared me saying that my baby’s kidneys were slightly large (1 mm) and that she also had a Echogenic intracardiac focus (EIF). It was my 20 weeks scan and also my first pregnancy. They started referring us to level 2 ultrasounds and genetic counselling. Being first time parents we were very very worried. With hope and trust on Baba, I did not get the level 2 ultrasounds done. During 32 weeks scan, the doctor said that both the issues seem to have resolved then, but they couldn’t get a specific view of the heart and they wanted us to go for an echocardiogram level 2 ultrasound. Again we got nervous. But then I left everything to Baba. I prayed that everything should be fine with my baby and I shall perform Sai Divya Pooja for 5 weeks after my delivery.
With blessings of Baba, I had a healthy baby. Om Sai Ram! I had promised Baba that I will post my experience once my baby is born healthy. I am very sorry for the delay Baba. It’s been almost 9 months since my daughter is born. I finally performed Sai Divya Pooja and today is my fifth week. But only one thing keeps going on in my mind. I wanted to name her after Sai Baba but couldn’t because naming her was everybody’s decision. I always feel sad about it, but in my heart I keep calling her Sai Maa. Sai Baba please bless us all. I have so many other things that I need to take care of. Please shower Your blessings on me, so that I can fulfil all my wishes. Om Sai Ram.
Anonymous Devotee from India says: I am small devotee of Baba. I am experiencing His immense miracles. Thank you Hetal ji for providing a platform to share our experiences. From childhood I believe in Baba. He is everything to me, but after my marriage I am away from Him, due to my blindness. He helped me in every situation, He is with me always, but I do not recognise Him. I fight with Him why He ignored me, in between we faced lot of struggles, in some cases it led to suicide tendency. I cried a lot , why He is not recognising me? Why He is not accepting me as His devotee, we were also lost in our business. We lost everything, many people showed their real side. We faced lot of struggles, I cried a lot why it was happening to m? I was loosing hope on my life day by day, finally my sister gave me a ray of hope. She suggested me to do Nav Guruvar Vrat, initially I resisted, but later started. After every week there is positive hope, and I got answer in Q and A site. I got very positive answer that was most related to my life. I cried a lot as Baba was hearing my prayers, from that day He is with me in every step, He never let me down. Now we are starting a new project with His blessings, please bless me Baba. Om Sai Ram Om Sai Ram.
Anonymous Devotee from India says: Hi I am a devotee of Sai Baba. I had been worshipping Him on and off since 2005 but have became His devotee in 2012. He has helped me a lot to come out of difficult situations. There are numerous occasions where He has helped me. I went on a trip to West Bengal and Jagannath Puri during Durga Puja with my colleagues without informing my parents and I was so scared if my parents will get to know about my travel without their knowledge, they will get so upset. On the whole trip I prayed Baba, please they should not know about my travel and Baba helped me. At last I was saved and as promised I am posting my experience. Thank You Baba. Thanks a lot!
