Shirdi Sai Brother Rupender from Botswana says: My humble Pranam to Sai Baba for giving me the inspiration to write about the wonderful blessings and, many thanks to the team maintaining this website allowing devotees to write about their experiences, which inspires so many like me. This post is long overdue, and is it’s really about small miracles that have taken place which increases my faith in Baba even more. Please forgive me for any grammar mistakes I may make writing this post as it’s the first time I have taken on such an endeavour, and hope readers get the gist of what I am writing about. I have been a devotee of Sai Baba for the last 9 years but my mother has been an ardent devotee of Baba from the time she was a little girl. For the last 5 years lot of troubles surrounded me which led to me to seek out Sai Baba even more, I will write about that in another post. This post is about our first family trip to Shirdi and how wonderfully everything came together.
I currently live in Southern Africa while my parents are retired and are currently in India. I was planning a trip to India, and now have this custom that I first visit Shirdi before travelling anywhere else in India. So this time I decided that all of us (my parents and I) should travel to Shirdi together. This already seemed like an impossible task as my Father is an atheist and has refused in the past to go to the temple let alone travel all the way from Delhi to Shirdi. So Instead my mother and I agreed that she would meet me in Shirdi and stay for one night and catch the flight back to Delhi the following day as she couldn’t leave my Dad alone for more than a day. I prayed to Baba that Dad should also agree to come so we all could spend more time together in Shirdi. At first my father refused to come with us, but the following day he woke up and said he wants to come with us to Shirdi. It was almost as if Baba made him change his mind. Without this miracle our Shirdi trip wouldn’t have been possible.
Now the planning the trip part came. I was so much having difficulty arranging the travel itinerary. But as soon as I prayed to Baba to allow us to travel to Shirdi to take His Darshan everything worked in a manner that was nothing short of a miracle. We had never travelled to Shirdi before and eventually everything came together in a manner that as though Sai was making all the arrangements for us. When we reached Sai temple to take Darshan, we were little confused and ended up going in separate queues. I was really worried for my parents and due to their ailing health I knew they could not stand for long waiting to take Darshan. But somehow Baba ensured that they have no such problems. As soon they got in the queue for the seniors, a police officer directed them and within ten minutes or so they managed to take Darshan. Baba helps you in ways you cannot even imagine; no matter how trivial it may seem to others. After taking Darshan we all decided to go to Parayan kaksh so I could read a chapter or two from Sai Satcharitra. By the time I started reading it, we had already been out more than 4 -5 hours from our lodging and I was really hungry. Then all of sudden a thought arose in my mind to test Baba. I prayed to Baba that if You have blessed me and my family please arrange something sweet for me to eat now to show Your presence. Within a minute of me praying to Baba and asking this a lady came to the back of the room where I was seated and gave me Sweet pudding. At that moment the contentment and happiness I felt cannot be described. Baba acknowledged my request and gave me a sign of His presence. What would the chances be of someone distributing Prasad to other devotees at a place where hardly any devotees visit within the entire temple complex! How wonderful is Baba to arrange such a miracle.
Lastly, after taking Darshan the miracles did not stop there. My parents went back to Delhi and I for the first time decided to travel to different parts of India on my own. When I started my journey I felt very lonely as It was the first time I had taken such a trip but believe it or not Baba was present everywhere I went in one form or the other; In the taxi that picked me up late at night to the small temple on the side of the road next to my hotel. Baba did not leave me and I felt He was always with me at every step throughout my journey. My request to all devotees would be simply to keep calm and pray to Baba earnestly. Sometimes what we may think is a challenge is only an opportunity to develop our character, and help us become wiser. May all those who read this find inspiration and happiness. God bless you all. Om Sai Ram.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from Malaysia says: Thank you Hetal ji and the whole of this team. You guys are doing a great Seva. May Baba always bless all of you. Sai Ram Sister. It’s a wonderful platform to experience Baba’s unfathomable Leela’s. May Baba bless you Hetal ji for this Seva which you are doing for so long. I have in contact with Baba Oct 2012 and I have experienced so many miracles but I apologize Baba for taking so this long to narrate at least 3 experience for this very first time. My parents has been searching groom for me for long time. At times I was also down as I was passing 30. After knowing Baba in 2012, I slowly start praying and knowing Baba more. I started reading Satcharitra and within completing 12 chapters, my marriage was fixed. Secondly, after my marriage, I was praying for baby, I completed 7 Saptah Parayan before being blessed with Baby. Until today, I keep the practice of reading Satcharitra and through this site, I am also part of Global Mahaparayan which is going on wonderfully. To all Baba devotees, have faith and patience. Baba is sure to bless all of us. Om Sai Ram.
Thirdly, recently , I sat for an examination. I was preparing for the exam for the past 10 months and was very nervous before the exam as many could not clear the exam in first attempt. But, as always I was keep praying for Baba and whatever I did for the exam, I try to do it on Thursday and ‘9’ date; such as registering the exam, printing the exam material and sitting on the exam which was on 9 Nov 2017 (Thursday) and thank you Baba ji, I passed the exam with also Baba number (90 marks). Baba has blessed me with so many things but I am sorry Baba for still keep asking for more and more things. I am sorry Baba, though doing Parayan regularly, I am still not able to follow Your Upasana written in Satcharitra. Now my father is very ill till and doctor has told he won’t survive long, but we all trust You so much and not giving up. You have said Deva everyone will have to suffer according to their karma and death may snatch us any time, please apologize my father for his bad karma. But by Baba’s grace, he is better from pain and restlessness. Will keep praying for all. Baba You are the greatest Deva in this world. I am sorry for all what I have done and thank You for allowing me to pray You. Om Sai Ram.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: Currently I am living in Bangalore. Thanks to Hetal ji for maintaining such a wonderful website where each and every devotees of Sai Baba submit their own experiences. From the past 9 years I am a devotee of Sai Baba. Coming to the First Experience, from the past two months my periods got delayed and I was in a tension to visit temples for my career. So I prayed to Baba and drink Udi Water and then after more than a week I got periods. Thank You so much Baba and now I am saying in the past whatever I had done I don’t repeat those things believe in me Baba.
Second Experience currently I am not working, before leaving the organization they gifted me 1000 Rs Amazon gift voucher. In that I had already used 750 Rsand remaining only 250 Rs were left. I thought to buy shampoo and Almonds but money was not there. Baba helped me in another form. Suddenly when I was about to buy shampoo I saw 750 Rs Amazon balance. For that I ordered shampoo one time and second time Almonds, I ordered and cancel I thought money was gone. I said to Saimaa If money would still exist in my account I would share my experience on this website. After some time balance was there in my account and I ordered Almonds. These is a very small miracle but the way Baba helped to add 750 Rs points to Amazon for my need was amazing. Koti Pranam to Shirdi Sai Baba. From the past 5 months onwards I am looking for job I have done so many trails Baba. I am leaving my problem at Your Lotus Feet Baba. Please give me a good job Baba. And get back my love and he has to change his behaviour and marry me with Your Blessings Baba. Please be with us Baba with my Family and sisters Delivery time. Akhilanda Koti Brahmand Nayak Rajadhi Raja Yogiraj Parabrahma Shri Sachidanand Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai.

Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: Sai Ram everyone. I’m current resident of Chennai and a huge devotee of Baba. I currently work for a software firm. I have shared few experiences on this blog and in this experience I’d like to share how Baba saved me from loss. I work in client location and client provides me laptop which I’ve to submit while I leave. The contract got over on 29th December 2017. I was in my exit formalities and it’s time for submission of laptop. Before that I checked everything like laptop damages, id card and signature required with admin who is a good friend of mine. So when he checked for the laptop he saw that there was a damage and it was negligible. But when I went to the respective team to submit it they were not accepting the damaged one and asked me to pay 5000 for the same. I felt really bad for the damage was not completely done by me but was already present. So I spoke with the admin and he in turn spoke with the validation team who actually receives laptop sending the photo of the damaged laptop. They asked me to wait for sometime and so I gave my mobile number to them and left the place. In the process I kept praying to Baba to get me out of this issue. As soon as I came down I got a call that it was approved. It’s purely Baba grace because that damage is not covered in the warranty but still Baba made them accept it. Really I am thankful to Baba. Thank You for everything Baba. Be with me forever.
Shirdi Sai Sister Archana from India says: Hello Hetal ji and all dear Sai Baba’s devotees, this is a small devotee of Baba. I have been introduced to this site only couple of months back and ever since I am used to reading experiences posted here and that is for sure relieving for all of us. Thank you Hetal ji for your noble initiative. We were planning for a Shirdi trip leaving my kid with my in-laws for 2 days and just 2 days prior to our journey our kid got fever. We were worried and not sure what to do. I prayed wholeheartedly to my dear Baba to take care of my kid during my absence and had told my mom-in-law to give him little Udi mixed with water along with the fever medicine. My kid’s fever reduced on 3rd day. My dear Baba listened to my prayers and also allowed me to have a wonderful Darshan. As promised I am posting this experience here. Thank You Baba. Please always keep my family in good health. Let all Your devotees have strong faith on You always and have Your blessings. Thank You Sai Ram. Om Sai Ram.
