Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from USA says: Hello Hetal ji and the team, First of all thank you very much for this site. I have the habit of reading this site every day and I doing it first thing in the morning after I reach work. It brings me closer to Sai Baba. Nearest Sai Baba temple is like 25 miles from my place and I visit temple every Thursday for evening Aarti at 6:30 pm. I had a wonderful experience with my beloved Sai Baba on my last visit.
I usually go to temple at 6:30 on Thursdays right after work. Due to bad traffic I usually get there after 6:30 pm. Last week when I visited Sai Baba temple at 6:30 pm for Evening Aarti, I ran into a friend who told me that he visits temple at 8:30 pm for night aarti but this time he came at 6:30 as he had plans 8:30. I really liked that idea because that means less traffic and I can finish work peacefully and get to temple right on time. This week when i was on Sai Q&A website asking Baba about an issue that I’ve been dealing with for a while now, I got the answer “Offer Coconut at my feet. A friend will help you”. That’s when i decided to go to Aarti at 8:30 pm this time and perform pooja with priests before Aarti. In this pooja, devotees offer a basket with coconut and fruits to Sai Baba. Devotees who are willing to buy basket, offer it to Sai baba before the aarti together.
So, this is how it all went with me on this Thursday. I bought a basket for Sai baba with coconut and presented that to the priest. Priests usually offer it to the Sai Baba and then devotees just go back and wait for the Aarti. Something strange happened with me and my wife this time. The priest asked us to just stay there and sit in front of the Baba Idol. They then performed pooja and Sai baba 108 naam jaap. I felt like we were sitting in Dwarkamai and Baba was right in front of us on a higher platform giving updesh like I’ve always imagined. It was an emotional moment for me because priests never ask devotees to stay back. I told my wife that this was the best Sai Baba pooja that I’ve ever had. But Baba had different plans. It didn’t end there. After the pooja, Priest called my wife and asked her to light the Aarti diyas. She was very surprised as the priests usually do that themselves and there were like 6 priests present at that time. We went to light the diyas and found there were two aarti thaalis. That was strange as there usually is one aarti thali. Then the priest comes to me and asks me to light the diyas in the second thali as well. After we lit the diyas, we started going back to our spot but priests asked us to stay back and asked us to hold the Thali and gave the other Thali to rest of the devotees. We were the one who started the Aarti. I was on cloud 9 and couldn’t stop smiling. Sai Baba gave me an indication that he is listening to us. Then we went to one side of the Idol to perform seva(that devotees usually do on both the side of the Idol at the time of Aarti). Usually devotees start the seva and then go around the idol (Parikrama) and then go back to stand at their spot in front of the idol. But as soon as we started performing seva. One of the priests stopped other devotees from performing seva. We performed it from the beginning of the Aarti till the end. Devotees were just performing Aarti and going back to their spot. It was like Sai Baba had planned everything. That really made me emotional. After the Aarti, I thought about my Sai Baba Q&A reply that Baba gave me: “Offer coconut at my feet. A friend will help you”. A friend did help me in the previous week by telling me about Night Aarti and giving me the idea of attending Shej Aarti. All that happened after we offered coconut was the indication by Baba that he has accepted our offerings. Love you Sai Baba. Please take care of my family, my wife. To all Sai Devotees – Please believe in Baba and trust him with Shraddha and Saburi.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: I am from India currently staying in the USA with my husband and 18 months old kid (which is nothing but one of His miracles). First of all I would like to thank Hetalji and her entire team for maintaining and adding daily new chapters to this digital version of the Sai Satcharita. It is the second time I am going to submit my experience. Please Baba help me to write it in proper way.
This is about how Baba rescued us from a big trouble by giving the project to my husband in right time. In June 2017, we had to move from Kentucky to Connecticut as his project got finished. That it was very difficult to get any apartment over there but Baba’s grace we got one. We moved to that apartment in June, everything went well for two months then suddenly his project got finished in 25th of July means the Client changed its vendor. This really made us like mad we didn’t know what to do? The only thing in our hand is to pray Baba wholeheartedly. We both started the 9 Thursday’s vart again. The main concern was about the little one, shifting from one place to another is very difficult. Here came another big trouble – the unusual lease breaking rule i.e. we need to pay the remaining months or we need to find tenants for them, both are really difficult for us. That means we had to pay another 9 months rents. Then he started searching inside and outside of his company. He had to find a project in one month or else they will send to India. Time was running out till August 29 he had no job only interviews.We had two more days left and here came our Merciful Baba. On 30th August he got an interview call and verbally they told that he was selected and on next day they sent the offer letter which was 7th day of our vrat. In October we moved here to Nashville, where Ganesha and Baba temples are just 11 miles away form our place. Also Baba sent a person who took the lease for 8 months and we have to pay one month, I believe Baba will definitely solve this problem. To all my friends only thing I can say keep Shraddha (love) and Saburi(patience) and help the needy whenever possible. These are the very few things Baba wants from us and in returns He will fulfill all your cherished dreams. Om Sai Ram
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from Netherlands says: I am a devotee of Sai Baba from Europe. Baba has always been with me in every situation. I not only remember Him in my difficult time but also I share my happiness with him because its all because of Baba. I was in sixth standard in school when I remember i got first attracted to Baba. No one in my family i knew by then who was a follower of Baba. I got a chance to visit my uncle in Mumbai and one night in dream saw that i am going to visit the temple which is under construction and and we are going through underground way for the darshan. Also the train is going through several tunnels which we took from Mumbai. The next day everything which was happening, I could relate with. To the surprise of a small kid, I saw many tunnels train passed through when we started from Mumbai. Then there was some construction going on in the temple and also we pass through an underground level for darshan which is still there!! After the darshan when we were waiting for the bus to return to the train station, My uncle went to get something to eat for everyone. Then my sister also went and brought something from the same shop and after sometime I also went and purchased something from the same shop. While returning the shopkeeper called me and gave me a calendar picture of Baba. We all returned happily after the darshan and i had forgotten about that picture of Baba in my jeans which was washed later. Somehow surprisingly, nothing happened to the picture of Baba. The calendar printed behind was completely had washed off and what had left like a lump of paper which when i carefully opened i found the picture of Baba in place!! Thank you to my Baba for choosing me and filling my heart with faith, for loving me and supporting me throughout in my life. I am short of words to tell his importance and blessings in my life and how lucky and safe I feel under his love and guidance. I am sorry for this long post but i have number of miracles of baba in my life and i will share few but I would first like to thank the team for this amazing blog. I got so blown away at first while sharing how I met Baba and so now I would like the opportunity to thank the team for keeping the faith live in the devotees and spreading this faith in others by this blog.
I would first say sorry to Baba in sharing this so late but the first incident was when i was on a holiday trip with my in-laws and got a news that my father back in India has some medical problem and went to see a doctor who suggested some tests and the result was not good and he asked for a cancer detection test. Everyone of us got scared and worried because my father was all fine till then. We decided to change the doctor for a second opinion, who gave few medicines and then performed test and everything was perfect. The previous night I cried and prayed to Baba to make him healthy and decided to read Sai Satcharitra if the test is going to be fine. Its been almost 8-9 months now and we regularly do test and every time with the grace of Baba the test result is good and my father is perfectly fine. The second is the recent one when my brother in US who is studying MS had some problems with the studies. There happened to be a situation that despite of all his efforts and sleepless studies his result was on stake and he was shattered with the fear of loosing. I prayed to Baba & exactly the same happened and he scored good. I also had decided to read Sai Satcharitra after his result and would ask him also the same. These are 2 miracles which i had promised to Baba that i would post on this blog and so with the grace of Baba I did. Its been a long journey of that small kid from the Baba’s dream till today as a grown up woman, and with everyday the faith and love for Baba has only increased. I feel so lucky and special for this. Please Baba always shower your blessing on me and on everyone who need you. Om Sai Ram

Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from USA says: I am a simple devotee of Baba and really feel blessed to be under His protection. The name of Sai is kavach in this kaliyuga. Om Sai Ram. My humble pranams to Hetal ji and the entire team for maintaining this holy website and to me this is really Sai. Jai Sairam.
Coming to my experience, I was really facing a major issue at work technically and had to solve it. I was also travelling to India for vacation and the issue originally came up last night. With Sai’s grace I was able to solve the issue within 2 hours and came home and even attended Sai Baba’s Thursday aarthi. Rather He Himself solved it on my behalf and I was simply the medium. Today they called me saying that issue really broke something else and they were all in panic mode and we had to leave for travel shortly. I prayed to Sai intently immediately and vowed to Him that if He solves this I will post the experience immediately. I was really worried in the beginning but left everything at Sai’s feet and opened Shirdi Sai live darshan and looked at Him. I checked the solution from yesterday and it still worked on my end. I walked though the technician to reattempt on his end. After that it was found that the issue was on his process and it worked fine once we did this. My joy knew no bounds and I immediately thanked Sai and publishing the same here. Really He is the sole doer of everything in His devotee’s life. Once you are under His protection; you need fear nothing for body and soul and anything for that matter. He will safely sail us all across the ocean of mundane existence. Thank You Sai and always being with me and helping in everything. Like Shama says, You create the storms and solve them. But I say the storms come because of our past Karma but You are the sole refugee and the only One Who can solve that and give us solace. Shree Sacchidananda Sadguru Saintah Maharaj Ki Jai Jai Sainath.
