One Of My Dream Come True
Shirdi Sai Brother Praveen from India says: I want to share my experience how I got into engineering services which is the continuation of my earlier experience how I get into ISRO http://www.shirdisaibabaexperiences.org/2016/09/shirdi-sai-baba-miracles-part-1403.html#experience1. Firstly thank you so much Hetal ji for providing this wonderful platform. This journey starts from June 9th 2016 (ISRO joining date) to September, 11 2017 (Result out date). After joining ISRO, everyone was saying you got good job then I thought so many times whether to start my Engineering services Exam (ESE) preparation 2017 because pay wise both are same jobs and I will get more allowance every year in ISRO. But ESE is powerful job if I get railways signal department in ESE. I can enjoy privileges, respect what I dream of. Where as in ISRO, I won’t enjoy that because everyone are equally qualified persons. So finally June 2017, I went to Baba’s temple Malleswaram in Bangalore and asked Baba by the help of chits and He told me only one thing prepare for ESE 2017.
Actually ESE 2016 was my best attempt so I thought I will get in 2016 itself and because of recent success of getting job in ISRO, I was not paying as much attention to Baba like I used to do when I was in Delhi working in Prasarbharti. It may be because of location shift and not getting proper room for study whatever the reason but I was not doing Pooja like as I used to do in Delhi. Just before the day of my birthday August 3rd ESE 2016 written results were out and I was lost. I was in full depression, I was not doing anything properly and finally went to some trip to get into the track. Once again but this time again I went to temple and asked Baba and He asked me to start preparation. Now magic of Baba starts, since it was new syllabus, I thought it was better to join coaching but frankly because of financial issues I was not able to take decision to join or not, I should thank to Baba once again and ACE academy that they offered me extra subjects coaching only for 9000/- when actual price was 25000/-. They offered me because of Baba’s blessings and somewhat my track record of Clearing ESE -2013 Written, and attended for almost 12 government job technical interviews and selected in three govt jobs (P.B,ISRO,AAI) but whatever without His blessings I wouldn’t get that opportunity because even though I cleared ESE 2013 written I did not get this opportunity in 2014.
After joining coaching because of management issues they were not properly conducting classes even though it was only weekend classes. Finally classes started seriously from September 1st week. Hardly I attended for 5 to 6 weeks meanwhile in October my father suffered with Diabetes retinopathy. Since I joined recently I had to apply for CHSS for my parents. By that time I already applied but did not get sanctioned saying that they need proof that my parents were staying with me. Don’t know how officer granted CHSS for my parents even though many people in between tried to stop; he granted CHSS facility. It was possible only because of Baba’s blessings and my explanation of my situation. My work location is at Jalahalli cross and my sister’s family is staying at Marathalli which is about 25 km. So I am staying in P.G (single room) near to office. But if my parents come I make them to stay in my sister’s house and have to take my father to hospital and have to go to office and manage classes. Sometimes I missed classes and I could not work properly. Finally by end of December he got operated and got back his vision almost but December came and only 20-25 days were remaining for preparation and that too hardly three to four weekends I would get.
Meanwhile friends like Raghu helped me in topics I missed in class. But what gave me motivation was, I have to go to office from Marathalli (about 25 Kms) in the early morning whenever my parents were staying in Bangalore. One Day I missed bus so I had to go by Bicycle (mountain bike, which I used to take whenever I was travelling from PG to office). Now travelling by bicycle and that much distance within 1hr 20 min was an impossible task especially if it was a first time; because even office bus also takes same time (100 min). Yes it happened on that day and exactly at 7:10 a.m. started with my awesome bicycle with all accessories helmet, gloves and everythingwith nonstop cycling even in red light situation. Yes I reached before my bus by 8:29 a.m. Then I thought if we do anything without stopping our efforts persistently we will get anything and definitely God Sai will help us. I applied same thing to my preparation. I did not stop even though my father was in hospital wherever at least I tried to revise or do something related to that. Finally not getting good marks in tests. I utilised leaves and Sundays, Christmas holiday and one week leave before exam.
I Forgot to mention when my father was ill, I had to take care of all the financial responsibility and find some loans which he bought at high interest rates and then decided to apply for loan. But the process of trying for loan is a big task and it’s not so easy that if we go to the bank we get that too when it is large amount. So I had these many tasks managing so many things in a day and at the same time preparing for exam and finally loan got sanctioned on December 24th. Then almost all tensions were over and only my father’s right eye had to be checked whether to go for operation or medicine. Left eye operation had been done in December first week itself. Now I started serious preparation of almost two weeks for prelims exam which were held on Jan 8th, 2017. I got leave of almost 10 days Sundays, Christmas and like that remaining four days, leisure hours in office also I managed. As usual first paper is general studies I did not do that well but I knew I would be good at technical paper. But all these days I did not prepare technical after May 2016. Hardly I covered 10-20% of technical syllabus and remaining all my energy invested on general studies but I did not do well in that paper. In the afternoon session, technical paper I played with it but at the same time I had a doubt without preparation if I write like this what about serious candidates they will definitely score better than me. Because of lack of preparation of technical subjects, I forgot so many formulae. I felt bad myself but did not lose energy and hope and yes it happened and I cleared prelims.
But second round mains descriptive I knew I was good at concepts but my handwriting and presentation is too bad (example in 2016 I attempted in descriptive 300/400 but I got 147/400) so lot of tension and only 50 posts werethere this year. I tried to study but it was not becoming possible for me to study. ACE is providing mains coaching for all prelims cleared students for free of cost but timings were 5p.m-9:30 p.m. My office official timings 8:30a.m -5p.m. but at this time I wish I should have bike with me but in that moment I could not waste time on that. I used the same cycle daily almost 15 Kms even at night time also. By the time I reached home it would be around 10:30 p.m Then I would try to study but I studied very less. Finally April first week with Baba’s blessings (by throwing chit) I put leave to office and shifted to Hyderabad for 40 days. I dedicated to books, even while studying also I did multitasking there in Ace Hyderabad. I attended mains classes while in class if I felt knew that concept then I would study some other thing and parallel listening to lecture. Even in washroom mugged up formulas. But in tests, I used to get less rank if paper was easy and used to get decent rank (top five) if paper was tough. Then I felt ok you have concepts but you have not practised. I did not have confidence at that time. Baba sent a friend named Durga Prasad. He also was preparing for mains but he was very confident because of his confidence only he had cleared 2016 written and this year prelims and mains too. He motivated me I used to teach him and help him and he used to get more marks than me in tests but I observed him how he was attempting and he also told that I was better than him and so many people here and asked me to be confident.
On the exam day Hemanth sir, also told me to be confident and that I have good stuff and I would surely get this time. I know in every exam conducted by institutes, I used to do lot of experiments. Attempting tough questions did not bother about success. But last mocks I had given seriously but I did not find improvement in my rank. Finally last week before the exam, I started from Hyderabad to Bangalore (exam centre). But during all these days I used to pray Baba a lot. Again when I was in train I met one E.S.E Officer. After seeing him I got energy and enthusiasm. After seeing his level in the sense always one person will be there along with him like P.A. It was really awesome. I felt happy and I thought I am on the right path and I increased my intensity of my preparation in the last weekend too. Really it was Saimaa Leela, at the moment I met IES officer which motivated me a lot. Last week prepared a lot, meanwhile so many friends and my brother, parents gave moral support. Really its worth to mention here about my brother; he used to talk with me daily. He is always proud of me after getting into ISRO. He supported and gave lot of moral support and he is the person who gave the idea of shifting to Hyderabad and going for medical leave. He came to Bangalore exclusively to shift me to Hyderabad and make himself sure that I got best place to study there. Lots of love and really Baba provided me the best room and best food in Hyderabad, in fact some special treatment in that PG was given to me by them.
Finally the day May 14th came, I studied up to almost 2 a.m. I did not get sleep but I rest my self completely on Baba and started for exam. Before going to exam Hemanth sir, Prasad, my brother and everyone gave moral support. I wrote well and after exam I joined in office and this was my worst phase. Really everyone suspects me and everyone treats me in their own way and lots of jokes and meanwhile my boss daily showed hell scolding for even small things. Since I am in probation, I could not say anything. I started Nav Guruvar Vrat and exactly on Thursday I got cleared mains too. At that time I was going to Shirdi. I was at Pune airport why I am mentioning here, during my mains preparation in Hyderabad I tried a lot to go to Shirdi but was not at all possible, He didn’t allow me to come then I said I won’t come at all to You until I clear E.S.E. But keeping aside everything I started to Shirdi because of some reasons and see even I kept aside my promise He made it true before reaching me to Pune airport, I got to know the result. I really felt happy and did not sleep in the bus from Pune to Shirdi and had an awesome Darshan three times. Forgot to mention about one more friend given by Baba. He didn’t know anything about exams but he became friend of me because of me. Almost whenever I go to Shirdi he will also come. So this time we had awesome Darshan three times and out of three one was Aarti. Finally felt happy and started to complete some work left there and after that again started to Bangalore to resume my office and interview preparation. Interview experience will be dealt in next one and how Baba helped me clearing all myths and interview result, once again thank you hetal ji.
Sai Is Much More Than Miracles
Shirdi Sai Sister Sangeeta from India says: Hi Sai friends and Hetal ji. My well wishes for you all. I am a small Sai believer. I am 26 years old and I started worshipping Sai in 2009. I was preparing for premedical tests at that time staying at hostel away from my home. There a friend of mine who used to do “Sai Vrats” and she used to forget her vow not to eat anything except lunch, so she asked me to accompany her in her fasts as she found only me to be religious one amongst her friends there and I agreed. Though I had never worshipped Sai before that, I just saw Sai Baba as a Saint from Shirdi that’s in South India having lot of devotees and nothing else. My first school was named “Sai Baba public school” I used to pinup an Id on my uniform with His silhouette. I think I will write a book if I go on like this. Readers now I proceed to one of my experiences with Sai (Amongst a thousand in these 9 years).
Everywhere I read that nowadays everybody telling about Sai Miracles. I don’t mean any kind of disrespect to Sai’s devotees who felt some kind of miracle happening in their life. Even I have witnessed some myself but I want to make those devotees feel good who haven’t seen any miracle or who are feeling hopeless in spite of Sai Devotion deep in their Heart. Well I was a kind of devotee who asked Sai for one or other miracles or hints for my love (proving me that He was meant for me) and I was happy, very happy when Sai used to fulfil my hints. But life took a turn and I found out that guy was not right for me as he was just feigning his love. I didn’t know his real intentions or maybe sometimes God, my Sai gave me some hints but I was too ignorant to see them. I was so deep in love that my Sai Bhakti (devotion) was totally related to his love. I didn’t even realise and I started seeing him in my Sai’s face. While the truth was just my Sai and not him. Just after that I lost my trust in my Sai. I kept praying Him that my love should return back, please make him say that he’s guilty for what he did and he really starts loving me. But nothing happened. I even went to Sai temple (as he was a Sai devotee too) with him praying Baba to make him mine. But all this turned out in vain.
Then one day my parents placed their expectations and my lifetime academic achievements revolved in my head. I thought what the hell happened to me. I was so studious and now all I did was to pray to Sai for him and cry and cry. Sai made me go to another hostel where I couldn’t keep my phone with me and he made me keep myself in rules and regulations to prevent my mind wandering in depression. I studied or should I say Sai made me study and I found myself in a good medical college that year. I couldn’t forget him but I came to know that he was not for me. Anyways my Sai devotion got back to normal (if Sai wants to keep a devotee who else can break his/her trust over Sai) And after one more failed relationship I was devastated but this time I was one who left him as I couldn’t forget my first love. It sounds funny to parents and mature people but really I can’t understand even now what happened to me that time but now even I think I was so dumb losing my life for some stranger.
But at last the one for me came. I grew up mature and Sai made me so strong that I can’t believe it’s the same me. My MBBS went on and now after 7 years I am with the one I’m going to marry (or Sai wants me to marry him). I am happy that he’s not a bit of those guys I had failed relationships with. Now I am in a position that let Sai do anything with me and my life but just be with me in those moments be it sad or good. As He’s the truth. My experience is too long I know but I just want to say be patient sometimes you have to go through the worst to get the best. Don’t worry best is with you already and the worst is just an illusion. If you believe He will sit by your side, He will lend you His shoulder to cry on, He will make you eat food when you don’t have any desire to live. He will appear before you in any form. Good words, photo, a friend, parents. Just believe whatever happens, happens with His wish and you will feel so much strength knowing that if He’s the one controlling us then what bad can hurt us, nothing. You all are special to Sai and it doesn’t matter that He’s not replying you or showing you miracles like what devotees write here. He’s much more than just miracles. He wants you to be strong, not just cry and disbelieve Him. He is by your side but wants you to be by His side too. If you won’t allow Him to enter your heart disbelieving Him how can He comfort you or give you peace. Just Let Him In. Sai Is Much More Than Just Miracles. His Silence Is Much More Precious For He Tests Those Who Strongly Have A Will To Carry On Without Needing Any Miracle. Your Devotion Should Be So Strong That You Would Hear Him Inside You Not Even Need To Look At The Question Answer Site Nor Waiting For Him To Appear Somewhere. Are! just close your eyes and He’s there inside you, why are you searching for Him outside. I don’t know why I write this today but I believe maybe someone needed these words so Sai took me to experience sharing page. Jai Sai Nath, love to all.
Trust Him, He Will Do The Rest
Shirdi Sai Anonymous Devotee from India says: Sai Ram to all Baba’s blessed devotees. Thanks Hetal ji and team for this wonderful website to share our Sai’s miracles, Leelas and experiences in our life to bring strength and belief in people who are in need and whoever seek His blessings. I would like to address me as one of the humble children of our beloved ever loving Sai. When Sai decides something for us, it is perfect and for a reason too. Though we never understand His Leelas most of the time, He will make things clear at the right time. We humans are like playful kids, don’t listen to our beloved mother Sai and get into trouble and blaming. But as a mother, Sai is always holding us tight and is loving, caring and protecting us all the time.
Coming to my experience, Mahaparayan started on 30th September, which was supposed to be my monthly cycle. I really did not want to miss the first day Parayan and was a bit anxious and left it to Sai Baba praying, You gave me a wonderful, blessed opportunity to do this Mahaparayan and I believe You will help me for sure. As you would have guessed, got my periods 5 days earlier and did Parayan wholeheartedly thanking Him.
One day I was so disappointed and frustrated with things going around me and said to Sai Amma, I will not eat my food until things get settle down and started reading Satcharitra, Chapter 32 where Mrs. Gokhale’s fasting was disapproved and made her eat Puran polis and my eyes were drenched with tears and felt like He Himself advised me not to put me in trouble unnecessarily and it was a timely one. Then immediately had my lunch and felt sorry for my mistake and prayed for His forgiveness and thanked Him for His love and care.
On another occasion, it was raining so badly and had to go and pick up my child. I usually start around 3 pm to reach his school on time. That day, until 2:50 pm it was raining heavily. I didn’t have proper umbrella and was having cold as well. I prayed to Sai Baba and believed Him completely that He will never ever leave me in such a helpless situation and will help me for sure. Around 2:56 pm, the rain slowed down and when I stepped out of the house at 3:00 pm, there were no rains and it was not raining after that. Sai Baba saved me from getting into severe cold and fever. Thank You Sai Amma for being with all Your beloved children. Thank You for all the good happened to us in past, present and future and protecting us in all bad situations. Surrendered completely onto You Sai Amma. Om Sai Sri Sai Jai Jai Sai. Om Sai Sri Sai Jai Jai Sai. Om Sai Sri Sai Jai Jai Sai.
Baba Gave Us Our Dream House
Shirdi Sai Anonymous Devotee from India says: Om Sai Ram, Thank You Baba for Your blessings. Om Sai Ram to all Sai devotees. Thanks for the team who created this site. I am reading all the experiences shared by Baba’s devotees from past two years. This is my fourth post on this site from which two are already published. What me and my family are today only because of blessings of our dear Sai Baba. My dream came true on 12th Aug 2017 when I shifted to my own house. There came so many hurdles in between but finally Sai Baba fulfilled my wish. My husband started searching for house in April. Our deal got final on 17th June, my daughter’s birthday. But after that so many problems came one by one in paper work. I prayed to Sai Baba, done Baba’s sugar candy Pooja and left everything to Him. We lost our hope in July and got tensed. But after so many tensions there was our Baba who fulfilled our wish on 9th Aug and we shifted to our house on 12th Aug. In July the property register rate were 9%. But in Aug it came down to 6%. So by postponing our work Baba saved our 80,000 Rs in registering our house. This is how Baba gave us lot of happiness, not only by having our own house but also by saving our money. So always keep faith in Baba and have patience. One day your wish will be fulfilled. Thank You my Sai, thank You for everything. You are my only hope in problems. Thank You Baba for taking care of my daughter. Today she is with us only because of You Baba. Please always take care of her and bless her with good health. Bless all Your devotees Baba. Love You Baba. You are my only hope and everything to me. Om Sai Ram, Om Sai Ram, Om Sai Ram
Baba Helped With Job
Shirdi Sai Anonymous Devotee from USA says : Namaste Hetal ji. Thank you for giving me this opportunity. This is my third experience here due to Baba’s grace. My this experience is about job for my father. He was looking for a job quite sometime, nothing was working and it was very, very disappointing. I had asked my Baba to please help him with a job and that I will definitely post it once he got a job. Today he was able to get a job due to Baba’s grace. I have no words to thank my Baba, but can just pray Him to allow me to be at His feet and hold Him in my heart. Seriously Shraddha and Saburi makes your life wonderful. Thank You my Sainath. Om Sai Ram.
My Phone Worked With Baba’s Grace
Shirdi Sai Anonymous Devotee from India says: Om Sai Ram. I have some or the other experiences with Sai Baba everyday. Without Baba i am nothing today. Baba is my father. Thank you for Hetal ji and team for maintaining this divine page. Already I shared my experiences before. This is my recent one. Today my phone suddenly stopped and did not get started. I prayed to Baba to please solve my problem and that I will share my experience. I then put Udi on phone and plugged in the charger. After one hour I tried to start my phone with full faith on Baba and it started normal, there was no problem in phone. Thank You Baba. Om Sai Ram. Anantha Koti Brahmand Nayak Rajadhi Raja Yogiraj Parabrahma Sri Sachidanand Samartha Sadguru Sri Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai.
