Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
Shirdi Sai Devotee from Shruti From India says: I am just a small devotee of Baba living in Delhi with husband and a kid. Hello all, I am Shruti from Delhi, India. First of all thank you Hetalji for doing such a kind of service for all of us. Your platform is life saviour for lakhs of devotees. This is my second experience. I am 31 year old female living in Delhi with my husband and 3 year daughter. Today is 6th July, 2018. This experience is all about our divine journey to Shirdi and blissful experiences we had. Sorry for lengthy post as I am writing after 2 years.
We reached Shirdi on a Saturday afternoon and as usual felt eternal bliss. We had gone to celebrate our daughter’s birthday at Shirdi which was on coming Monday. We book usually same hotel every year Hotel BhayaLaxmi and this time also we booked the same hotel. When we reached our hotel, the entrance of the hotel was beautifully decorated with flowers and rangolis and it was written welcome. I was surprised as we had been to that hotel 4 times before but never saw such kind of decorations and lighting. Guard told that some military personnel were coming and that’s why the arrangements had been there. But I felt very happy as it felt that Baba Himself was welcoming us. After we had wonderful darshan on Sunday and attended Shej aarti also on Sunday. Then came Monday, my daughter’s birthday day. We had booked morning Darshan passes (early morning slot. We got into the line. I watched the live telecast of Samadhi mandir on the various TVs installed inside the temple. The colour of the dress which Baba was wearing was the same as my daughter’s dress which we had bought especially for her birthday light electric blur colour. I thanked Baba for His such a beautiful leela. I also noticed after few minutes that the glass barriers from all the three sides of the darshan were removed at this hour and devotees were getting chance to touch the Baba’s Samadhi with their hands. My heart skipped the beat as I have always thought that those people are so lucky who have got chance to touch Baba’s Samadhi wondered whether we would be sent in the corner lines this time (either left or right) so that me and my family can also get this auspicious opportunity.
I kept my finger crossed and kept progressing in line and keep thinking that I should not show any kind of craving for this thing as Baba may not like it. When we reached at the main darshan after climbing the stairs there were two options of lines. I insisted my husband to go to the extreme right but he said that no lets go through the inward line as both the lines were merging and we would be able to touch the Samadhi. I still tried to convince him to move to the extreme corner line but he didn’t listen. At last we went into the inward line and after reaching near Baba, my husband realized his mistake. I too was disappointed to miss this golden chance but kept my cool. Then we got the chance to stand direct in front of Baba as we were in the inner line. It was such a magical moment. I forgot all the things in my mind and kept doing darshan, my husband told panditji that it was her birthday, and so could he please take her and make her forehead touch Baba’s Samadhi. Unusually pandit ji heard us and let her stand on the platform where all the pujaris sit and held her and made her bow to Baba’s Samadhi. Her forehead touched Baba’s Samadhi. Generally, only young babies get the chance to touch their forehead at Samadhi as pujaris hold them in their hands. Allowing 3 year old kid do that was little surprising for me. My eyes were full of tears. I was so elated. I felt satisfied that even though we doidn’t get chance to touch Baba’s Samadhi, still our child got the chance to bow to Samadhi and that too on her birthday. As we were in the centre line, our exit was going backwards all the way from the main darbaar and taking left side door to come out. As my other family members had already reached back and were out of sight. I took little more time as I was descending pretty slowly, trying to look at Baba’s serendipity face for the longer time. After reaching at the left side door, I saw that all other family members had gone and my husband along with my daughter were waiting for me. He said that he had talked to the policeman who was handling the crowd and he has told to stand in the corner for few minutes and then again we could join the line. I was stunned and didn’t; believe my husband. I thought he misunderstood the policemen. But when the next lot of devotees were released in the main hall to enter into lines, he allowed us also. I was speechless and with my mind totally on Baba, we entered into the left most corner line. Within 2 minutes, we got the chance to have darshan of Baba from sideways (left) and alas…. touch Samadhi with our hands. My, my husband, my kid we all got such a wonderful darshan.
A lady security personnel who was pushing everyone to go outside, held my hand and told me to come in the corner beside her and take darshan. I was shocked to hear those words from her as generally they are only pushing people. I with bedewed eyes stood there and thanked her from the bottom of my heart for such generosity.
After that we came outside in the Neem tree compound and suddenly realized that the chattra and mukut that we had brought from Delhi to offer Him, we forgot to put those in that big hundi in the main durbar premises. We went to the donation counter but they said that these items were accepted only after 10 am and asked us to go outside and put it in the hundi outside donation counter if we didn’t, want the receipt. We were okay with it, but when we reached at hundi, we could not put it into that hundi because it was smaller in size and chattra due to height and mukut due to length was not going inside. Then we went in their office again and they directed us to another office which was near that Gate – 2, just opposite to the place from where we can have the side way darshan of Baba from the small window (near compound area). There also the official said to put it in the outside hundi. We tried and failed again. Baba was testing our patience, He told us to go to the police officials standing near one closed entry gate and told us to request them to allow us to enter into the temple from that restricted/closed path so that we may put the ornaments in the big hundi inside the temple. We did that only but police officials were adamant that they could not allow that. We tried to explain them but no use. Then we again went to that office and requested the officials to kindly keep it with themselves. This time he went with us, said something to police personnel in Marathi language. Then he removed the barrier gate. I was tired off all this and was scared a bit from those officials. So I handed over the ornaments to husband and I told him that I will stay there and wait for him. But that police official said that I should also go with him. I was surprised again. We got chance to get into the restricted door, came right near Baba (right corner most line), had His darshan again, put the things in hundi and got relieved,. I was so happy and delighted with Baba’s leela. He on my daughter’s birthday, allowed us to have His darshan three times back to back from the three angles.
Later in the evening, our cab driver called and said that he had come to our hotel and there was a small photo frame as a gift from their tour company. My husband went down and when he came up and showed me the photo it was very big (Life size) photo frame of our Shirdi Sai Baba which my husband was barely able to hold due to its big size and vastness. We were so overjoyed to experience all these magical leelas of Baba on my daughter’s birthday. May our Sai Baba bless all His devotees with good health and happiness.
Shirdi Sai Devotee Anjali from UK says: I am Anjali, one of Baba’s children. Just wanted to share with you all how Baba has and is always with me. Just sharing one of the experiences
Thanks to all wonderful people (Hetalji, Poojaji and Manjuji and all those working silently in the background) who made this platform possible and working hard to share our story in this modern age Sai Satcharitra. Sorry for lengthy post, but I just want to share how Baba held my hand every minute and helped me cross such a big hurdle in my life. I have been praying to Sai Baba for last 20 years and had never heard of Stavan Manjari. I heard it first time in Mahaparayan group, as the link and stories were being posted about wish for something and join the group. I remember the day I stood in my kitchen and said Baba, You have given me everything, I wish You to stay with me always. I joined Stavan Manjari group on Thursday. On Friday, my husband went alone for appointment with the doctor for ulcer in his mouth, and found out that he has mouth cancer, unsure of the stage till MRI done. He came home and told me that evening. Our worlds shattered. I went to Baba and cried, and somehow went on saying in my mind, Baba You know the best. Never once I fought with Baba, which I do many times.
Monday: We went to see the doctor again, who informed us that the operation was needed and it was a very major surgery. But we need to wait for MRI which could take two weeks. The MRI would help us to get to know the staging of cancer. Next day, I decided to start 9 Sai Thursday fasts from coming Thursday. Suddenly in next half hour, we had a phone call that the MRI appointment was available, which was quite rare in UK. Next day, MRI was done. 1st Thursday vratam: After doctors meeting it was confirmed that it’s only stage 1, but would still need major operation. This was my first Thursday vratam. 2nd Thursday vrat: Meeting again with surgical team and got the best surgeon out of the whole team. In UK, we can’t choose our surgeon, so it was Baba’s grace sending the best one. 3rd Thursday vrat: Thursday-Surgery done successfully. Though following days were very hard for us, when my husband was in ICU, but lots of friends and family around supported us. Some people whom I had never seen, but became more like a family from Mahaparayan group, Jaap group, VSP and Stavan Manjari group, supported me and kept me closer to Baba. Thanks to Manju ji, Anand bhai who helped me to get my coconut to Shirdi, Soumya ji-whom I have never seen, did bhajan for my husband in her house. Thanks to all who supported me so much and I would pray to Baba to be with you always. Baba also made my sister- in- law to reach us from USA on time to support us. 4th Thursday vratam -My husband was discharged from the hospital, though doctors had said he would need to stay for 2-3 weeks, may not be able to eat solids and may need breathing support. He came home, was eating and speaking normally which surprised the doctors. It’s all Baba’s miracle and blessings. 5th Thursday vratam-Biopsy reports came and was discussed in doctor’s meeting that all cancer was out and no spread anywhere and no radiotherapy or chemotherapy was needed. We were informed of the results on Friday-Vishnu Sahasaranaama day. Following week, we went to meet my husband’s surgeon. In one conversation, surgeon said, so we did surgery on Tuesday. We said, No it was a Thursday. He said- I never do surgeries on Thursday, for you, somehow theatre and team became available on Thursday which was very rare. I don’t have enough words for the skill and precision the surgeon did the surgery. I know how critical and dangerous this surgery was, as it was neck cut open. Everyone praised the surgeon’s skills and he did the surgery brilliantly that not even single scar was visible on my husband’s neck or face. Baba sent him for us.
Just to add, in the country we live, we can’t choose the doctor we want to have surgery with or when to have the surgery. It all happens in order, and surgery could take weeks to happen. 6th Thursday vratam-My husband was doing gardening, eating normal spicy food and no side effects on his speech was seen. On 7th Thursday vratam, my husband joined back his work. Stavan manjari helped me to stay closer to Baba and It is exactly the words I want to say to Baba and love it from bottom of my heart. I am sure Baba only knows why this storm came in my life, but it got me closer to Baba, realise value of life and people, something I had forgotten in this busy life. I don’t want to say thanks as that’s not the right word to say to my dad-Baba, just want to say I am blessed to be Your daughter. Be with me always. Om Sai Ram.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: Satguru Sainath Maharaj ki Jai. Sorry Babaji, as I was being very lazy to write Your leelas. When we are sad and dejected, we want immediate results and relief from pain, but forget to fulfil our promise which we had mentally made to You. These experiences and leelas give strength to so many children of Yours.
My first experience is about my lost shopping bags. We had gone to Dharamshala for a family holiday. While we were visiting a church there, I kept my shopping bags beside me and got busy in clicking pictures and completely forgot about my bags. Then we went to few other places and the thought of those bags neither occurred to me nor to anyone in my family. Then in the late evening when we reached our hotel, I realized that I had left my bags in the church compound. Our driver told us the church would be closed and no point going all the way back as we would not be able to enter inside and it was very unlikely to find the bags still there. But with complete faith in Sai I told the driver to take us back there which was 45 minutes’ drive from our hotel. Not only we could get inside the church but also got the bags kept safely with the caretaker.
My second experience is regarding my refund from an online shopping portal which came through with the blessings of Babaji.
My next experience happened very recently. It is about my brother who came out of Coma. He was in Coma for 3 days. Our Mahaparayan Group did Naam Jaap and Satcharitra parayan for him and even before finishing the prayers he came out of his condition. Such is the great power of group prayers. I am sincerely thankful to all the Sai family for all the support and selfless service in my very tough time. May God bless all of you with great happiness. Jai Sai Ram.

Myself from Coimbatore and I have experienced many Sai Appa miracles. This is my 4th post. My first experience is that my i-Phone 4s wasn’t working since I did not charge it for long and after putting it on charging for the whole day, there wasn’t any indication for charging. I prayed Sai Appa and put Udi on top of the i-Phone and by His grace it started charging. My 2nd experience is that my mother’s gold earring was lost and after searching all places at home couldn’t trace it. Then I prayed Sai Appa that I will post the experience if found. Earring was shown by Sai Appa immediately after I resolved to post on the website in my mind. Tons of thanks Sai Appa for always being with me. I know I have been angry with You at times because of my situations but You have always been by my side as my mom and dad. Love You loads Sai Appa. Om Sairam.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: Hi to all Sai devotees. I have shared so many experiences on this blog.
Following is one more experience that I have experienced. Last week all my colleagues decided to visit my place. I agreed for this, but inside me I wanted them not to come to my place. Because my home situation was little dull and my relatives were also visiting my place. There was problem in their staying also. I couldn’t share this to them directly and I couldn’t say no to them. So, I prayed Baba that let all of them cancel the plan by themselves so that I should not hurt them by saying no. One day before they decided to come to my home all dropped the plan due to one or the other reason. I had prayed Baba that if they cancelled this plan by themselves then I would share this experience on this blog. Jai Shree Ramanjaneya Om Sai Ram Om Sai Ram Om Sai Ram Om Sai Ram Om Sai Ram.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: Om Sairam to all. This is yet another miracle of Baba. I had participated in multiple online contests and prayed Baba to make me win in all contests and promised him to share my experience if I win. In the middle of contests I thought I would lose. At the end I won in half of the contests unexpectedly.
This is another miracle of our Sai Baba. I had prayed Baba to make me sell atleast half of the dead stock in my business which was not getting sold since so much time and I had promised Him that if He makes me sell that, atleast half also, I will share the experience. It was Baba’s grace that He made me sell it. Now I am hence sharing this experience.
Thank You so much Baba. It’s all Your leela. Sorry for posting my experience so late. Please forgive me and bless me and my family and everyone. Thank You so much. Om Sairam to all. Sorry for all my mistakes
