Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from Australia says: Hello everyone, finally I am sitting at my desk with a sense of peace in my heart and want to share with you all about a series of miracles that happened in my life lately. Before that, I would like to thank Hetalji for this website. It was this website that gave me hope and patience to take every step that was necessary. Without this website, my journey especially in the last several months would have been a lot harder than what it was so a BIG THANK YOU!
I have always been a believer in something bigger than me since I was little. I had faith in that Bigger Source that I didn’t know exactly Who or/and What it was. As always, life throws at us whatever it is necessary for us to grow and be stronger and my life has not been an exception from these tough life lessons. Whenever such life lesson kicks in, one’s belief tends to go deeper and one’s searching for God becomes even intense. For me it was only a couple of years ago that I learnt about Sai Baba but even then I didn’t know much about the miracles He performed and the life He had. I felt however very close to Him for a very strange reason and whenever I saw Sai Baba’s photo or statue, I felt His loving presence. It was only a couple of months ago when my life again threw a tough test at me and I got connected to Sai Baba. For me it was more like a calling to be connected to Baba and what Baba has done for me is a pure miracle. No! It’s beyond a miracle but I cannot find a word that can describe it. So I will narrate it below
Out of the biggest challenges that I was experiencing in the last several months was a job. I left my last job 6 months ago believing that there would be another job and I would start a new job soon but things turned out differently than what I had expected. The first 2 months since I left my last job, I thought I would take this opportunity to have a break and relax but when the 3rd month of unemployment started my anxiety was slowly but surely growing in my heart. My husband kept telling me that all would be fine but it was easier said than done. However, I couldn’t afford to sit and cry about the situation all the time so I pushed every single day to take an action whether that was sending my resume or attending an interview. In the 4th month (April 2018), luckily (well, at least that’s what I thought) I got 2 calls from 2 different companies that I had attended interviews previously that they would like to offer me the job. I was on cloud nine and I actually got to ‘choose’ which one I like so I was comparing the two jobs and I chose one I liked more than the other. On the next day, I called both companies to let them know that I would take the job from the company A and decline the job of the company B. But to my surprise, the both companies told me that they had to review their budget and headcount approval. At first, I couldn’t understand the sudden turnaround because why would you offer a job when the budget and headcount were not approved? They said it was a last minute change from their HR to review the hiring process. I was devastated. I couldn’t believe what had just happened. I started crying my heart out and the whole world looked so dark and scary but my husband was there for me to console that everything would be ok.
After a couple of days from the rejection call, my husband suggested to visit temples and pray. With a sincere prayer all is possible, he said. So we started visiting and donating at different temples. When I was at the temple, I could calm down a little bit but the anxiety didn’t go away fully and especially a day when I didn’t receive any call for an interview my worry was growing in double. I started sending my resume again. My heart was heavy, very heavy because I knew how long it would take for an interview to be arranged and number of interviews that would need to take place so I felt like I was starting a marathon again right after completing one. I felt exhausted just looking for a job but there seemed to be nothing else I could do. I felt powerless and hopeless. On 27th May 2018 which was a Sunday, I got a call from a headhunter saying that there was a role that would match and the company needed someone ASAP (I didn’t send my resume to her. She found me on internet). I was surprised that she actually called me on a Sunday but I felt a sigh of relief and I could breathe again just receiving that call. After reading the job description the headhunter sent me after the call, I agreed to attend an interview. On the same day (Sunday night), the headhunter called me back and said the interview was arranged for Monday, the next day. I couldn’t believe that the things were happening very fast. I was so excited. On the following day (28th May 2018), I attended the interview and it went very well. With all my excitement, I was waiting for a feedback but no response. I waited for a week and I started having the same heavy feeling in my heart again. I called the headhunter on 5th June 2018 asking for the feedback and she said that the feedback was positive and the company would like to proceed with the 2nd interview which would be arranged in the 2nd week of June. Out of curiosity, I asked the recruiter how many more interviews there would be and she said maybe 4-5 rounds. Although I was very excited to move on to the 2nd round of the interview, it felt the interview process was going to be a long journey.
After the 2nd interview which took place on the 12th June, all of sudden, I had a very strong urge to go to Sai Baba’s temple so I said to my husband that we should visit Sai Baba’s temple. I didn’t know where this thought came from and why I felt such a strong and intense urge to do it. I said to my husband that I want to pray to Baba from now on every single day and chant His name every minute. Also, this was the day (12th June 2018) I started reading all the stories about Baba and His miracles. I couldn’t stop. I was reading all the materials that were available on internet about Sai Baba. That’s when I got to know about Sai Satcharitra as well. I promised Sai Baba that I would read the Satcharitra. I couldn’t believe my intensity and the strong connection to Sai Baba. On 18th June 2018, I said to my husband that we should do Sai Nav Guruwar Vrat and my husband was very happy and we committed to start our first Sai Nav Guruwar Vrat on 21st June. On the same day (18th June 2018), the headhunter called me and said that the 3rd interview was being arranged but the interviewer was traveling so it was really hard to get his availability but a tentative interview would be in the last week of June. Although I felt totally surrendered to Baba, my human mind was playing on me and I was calculating if the 3rd interview happens only at the end of June, the whole interview process would take another 2-3 months to complete the rest of 4-5 rounds but I knew Sai Baba would take care of all that. In the meantime, my husband and I started our first Sai Nav Guruwar Vrat which started on 21st June 2018. After our first day of Sai Nav Guruwar Vrat I started reading Sai Satcharitra (21st June). I was determined to read Satcharitra within 7 days. I didn’t know how but I knew that Baba would take care of everything while I am reading Satcharitra so while I was reading the Book; I didn’t think about the job or interview but focused on the Book wholeheartedly. I finished the Book on 26th June 2018. On 27th June 2018, I got a call from the headhunter (I thought she was going to confirm the 3rd interview date) saying that the company would like to offer the job and no more interviews were required. I couldn’t believe it so I asked her how it was possible and she said, the 4 other interviewers who would have needed to interview me as per the hiring process agreed that if the previous 2 interviewers were happy with me they would consent to hire me without any further interviews. I was in awe. Even more surprisingly, she asked me if I could start on 29th June 2018. I couldn’t believe what was happening. She said, the company would have the offer letter ready later that day (27th June 2018) so I should go to the company and sign the letter so that I can start my new job on 29th June. I said Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, and Yes to all her requests.
There was another miracle Sai Baba put in place was, when I was signing the offer letter, I noticed that the job title was different than the one I was interviewed for (one level higher) and the HR manager explained to me that this job title would be more suitable for my work. When I came home after singing the offer letter, I prayed and thanked to Sai Baba for the miracles He performed in my life in such a short period of time but when I was praying I felt like I heard His voice saying that it was Him Who performed the miracles all along in my life. I just didn’t recognise Him but He is happy at last I found Him, I couldn’t stop crying. This time it were happy tears. The next day (28th June) my husband and I did our 2nd week of Sai Nav Guruwar Vrat at Sai Baba’s temple. I was so overwhelmed with the feeling of love from Sai Baba; tears were flowing down on my face. With Baba’s grace and blessing, I started my new job on 29th June which was 2 days ago. I really wanted to share my story of Baba’s miracles with you all because I know with Baba all is possible and with our deep faith in Him, He will take care of each and everyone of us. Jai Jai Sai Ram.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: Hi I am a married woman, mother of a daughter from India. I started worshipping Sai Appa from 2010 but like other Gods. I got married in December 2013. Mine is love cum arranged marriage. My husband is a drunkard, because of me he changed a lot. His parents are evil minded. But his dad convinced my dad for marriage as he thought he could get more dowry. His dad also pretended like a good person. So my family also accepted. But after marriage they were showing their real colour. My husband started physical and mental torture to me because of his parents. After 6 months of infertility treatment we were blessed with my daughter on November 30. We had tested for pregnancy on Ram Navami.
After she was born my husband started showing love towards me and my daughter. But his parents didn’t like that. His parent’s home was at a walkable distance. Everyday his dad came to our home and created problems between us. So I was in my dad’s home as my husband had beaten me severely. His parents were happy. So I started using my husband’s salary. Even his dad was getting good pension. So they didn’t take concern on my husband. He slowly got addicted to bad habits because of his friends, also got debt from private banks. His parents also only expected money from him. They wanted his elder brother’s family’s wealth. In my mom’s home also my brothers and mom used to hurt me daily. Because they thought of me and my daughter would be burden to them in future. My dad was my only support. I used to pray Sai apparently daily and cried a lot. After 1 and half year, my cousin told there was walk-in interview in my university and asked me to attend it. My brother also forced me. But I didn’t prepare well. My master degree’s Committee member was one of them amongst the interview panel. He asked why I was jobless for 4 years. I told my story while certificate verification. He told he would recommend me. In interview my project director talked rudely as I didn’t send my research articles which were necessary to become assistant professor. So he told I would not be sincere. I was heartbroken as I had to earn for my daughter’s future.
My husband also didn’t talk with us. Then we went back to my native. While on the way to my home, one neighbour lady asked me how was my interview and said not to worry as Sai Appa would give the job. I smiled bitterly and scolded Sai Appa as I had asked Him to be with me throughout the interview. But He didn’t help me. After 2 days after that my member called me and asked whether I was willing to work there as I got less mark in interview he had to recommend me. So I said yes. Then I went to home temple and thanked Baba. After 4 days sir called me and asked me to join.
I am going to get my first month salary soon. But it’s hard for me to stay alone in hostel without my daughter. My husband and his parents came to know that I was working near to their place. So they told my husband to invite me to home as they wanted my salary to clear their debts. So my husband is coming to meet me every week. They took all my jewellery and 2 lakhs from my dad. Now his parents took all my things with them and are living with my husband. Please Sai apparently no one will suffer like me. Please take care of my parents and daughter. You are my only hope. Please be with me forever. Sometimes I feel alone and hopeless about me and my daughter’s future. I have to be alive for my daughter as no one will take care of her after my parents. My work also is very stressful with less salary. Please bless me with a good job. I love You so much Sai Appa. I feel Your presence with me. Every struggle and event happening in my life is because of You Sai Appa. Thank You for everything. Please make me stronger. Please bless me to in the position to help the needy.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from Canada says: Please keep my email address anonymous. I am a small devotee from Canada.
I came to know about Sai Baba through my maternal grandmother at the age of 5 or 6 years. I don’t know of praying other Gods other than my beloved Sai. Though I am firm believer of Sai, still sometime my faith fluctuates when the desired thing doesn’t happen. I had faced many difficulties in life due to my past karmas and sins.
Coming to first experience, Sai gave me indication in my dream before I was getting pregnant. Though I had Baba’s blessings my pregnancy was one of the toughest journeys. At 27 weeks of pregnancy, I had to undergo glucose tolerance test. I had prayed Baba very hard to pass the test but unfortunately I failed the test and was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. I was so upset and blamed Baba for not fulfilling my wish. I didn’t understand Baba’s ways at that time, but Baba blessed me with healthy and cute baby girl with no complications, for which I had been praying constantly. Moreover, with gestational diabetes, I had to prick my finger 4 times a day to test blood sugars and it was the toughest part and I used to ask Baba in chits for the suggestions of do’s and dont’s. When I asked Baba for checking blood sugars regularly, I got the answer as No. I did the same thing and whatever Baba suggested and left everything on Baba. Baba then proved that faith and patience makes everything possible.
One day my new born baby was cranky and fussy in the middle of the night and I was unable to put her to sleep. I prayed Baba, saying Baba I will do 108 naam jaap and by the time I finish, my baby has to sleep. Here was the miracle; as really my baby went to sleep by the time finished my 108 naam jaap. Baba listens our every prayer even though they are small. I request all the devotees to have faith on Baba every second, whatever the situation is.
I have experienced many miracles but never thanked Baba for the things I have and always behind Baba asking for something all the time. Baba I thank from the bottom of my heart for every small thing that You have blessed me and please bless me to become a good person and never alter faith on You. In every birth I should be with You Baba and I have one more wish, asking You since long time. I don’t know the reason behind not fulfilling it. But it’s my dream Baba.
Please bless me Baba to fulfil my dream and I request all the devotees to pray for me to fulfil my dream. I thank Hetalji and other devotees who help to maintain the website and Baba bless you abundantly. Om Shree Sai Ram.
Shirdi Sai Devotee Prashanti from India says: I don’t know how to post my thoughts as its the 1st time I am sharing something on your blog and I promised Sairam that I would post my feelings through this post as here all your prayers and miracles happened in Your life always made my faith stronger towards God. I experienced lots of miracles since I was in school. Sairam always listened my problems and solved them in time. In everyone’s life problems are common. Happiness and sadness will always be there, but whenever I prayed with total faith in Sairam my all wishes were granted. My whole life is addicted to Sairam, for every small thing I chant Sairam as I know it is a powerful mantra for me.
I love Baba, lots of times I experienced His presence beside me. In my marriage also I had lots of problem and even in my pregnancy period Sairam solved everything. I am not saying I love Him because He solves every problem, I mean to say that Sairam’s bhakts never need to be sad unless they are having have faith on Baba. When I had a doubt about my problem Baba came as a beggar and assured me that He was there with me and so no need to get confused. I have experienced lots of resemblances that He is watching me. So all trust in Sairam that all problems would be solved 100%. Om Sairam, Thank You for giving me this opportunity to share my experience.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: I am a Sai Bhakt from about 10 years. My name is Sanjana from Bangalore. I have been experiencing Sai’s miracles at every stage of my life, this one being the latest.
I had been planning to do Sai Saptah since my second son’s birth. It finally materialised when my son was nearing one. It was on the second or third day of my Saptah where I read the story of the child which was saved from being thrown into the fire in some remote place by Sai. It was on the same day that this incident happened. I was alone with my child who was crawling all over the house. He slipped from my sight for a second, only to realise that he had entered our pooja room and grabbed the lighted lamp. Even before I could run to him the lighted lamp had fallen on him. I rushed to rescue him but Baba had already done it. My child’s dress and hands were smeared with hot oil but to my surprise he was cheerful and had no pain. I could feel the heat of the oil on his arms but not him. There was no bruise or redness. This was a reaffirmation to me that Sai’s shield is always there protecting His devotees.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: Om Sairam to all. Thank you Hetal di for this blog. During my under graduation my friend was a Sai devotee, I saw that slowly she reduced her touch with Baba. She got married and had a kid. She was going through many problems. She called up and asked me how to pray Baba. I told her about five days puja of Sai, reading Satcharitra in seven days or Sai Nav Guruvar vrat. She decided to do five days puja, to read 108 names of Baba. She called me on fifth day and told that she went to her mother’s home on the fourth day. It was sankashti and so she went to a Ganesha temple which also had a Sai temple. She was so excited because since many years she was planning to go to Baba’s temple, but it was not happening. She told me that Baba fulfilled her wish in just four days. I was so excited. I couldn’t stop sharing this experience. Om Sai Baba.
