Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from USA says: This experience is submitted by my husband who is an ardent devotee of Baba. We live in USA. We would like to remain anonymous.
Dear devotees, you all are aware of how Baba protects His devotees and how He comes to their rescue just in time. It is the experience of us all mere mortals that we become panicky and desperate when we plan to accomplish an action but we see obstacles all the way. However, if we trust our Baba Sai and while constantly chanting His name, leave it to Him; He will make it happen in His own inimitable way.
I have several such experiences, big and small, and here is the latest one that bolsters my faith and devotion in Sai Baba, Whom I knew from my childhood as a saint but never really knew that He was an incarnation of the God Almighty until I was drawn to Him like a sparrow as late as in 2015. He drew me, showed me the right path and my life has changed ever since.
I am a devotee of Baba residing in the US and have my own company. May this year I had planned to sell an apartment I owned in India, repatriate the amount, and pay off my company loan. I had already found a prospective buyer who was willing to buy this property. However, I was not able to go to India then and asked the prospective buyer to go ahead and look for another apartment as he was keen to own a house and I didn’t want him to wait for me. He told me that he liked my apartment and was willing to wait until I visit in late December. Early in October, I realized that, I needed the money urgently and I checked with the buyer if he could get this transaction done quickly. This was not an easy task as it needed the bank loan approval for the buyer, the tedious registration process at the sub-registrar’s office and the repatriation of the money through a bank that required involvement of a chartered accountant, income-tax officials and my bank. Since the buyer was very keen to have the property in his name, he told me that he could get it done. I booked my tickets hastily and afterwards realized that I had exactly 8 working days in my hand to accomplish it and was a bit apprehensive even before I started from the US. When I reached India, my mind was clouded with uncertainties and to compound it further, I came to know that there had been a strike by the lawyers for more than a month and the registration at the sub-registrar’s office may not happen until the strike was called off.
I thought my whole time and money was wasted but keeping utmost faith in Baba, I kept chanting His name all the time and kept praying Him to help me in getting my job done. I used to visit Baba’s temple every morning while in India which was very close to my house and it was giving peace to my mind. Seeing Baba’s beautiful, calm and serene idol was very reassuring. I arrived on a Tuesday morning and by Thursday afternoon; the paperwork related to the bank loan was completed without any issue. The buyer said that there was likelihood that the lawyers’ strike would be called off on Friday morning and that he was making all the efforts to get the registration done that day itself. I thought I should be able to deposit the money in my Indian bank account and get it repatriated to my US bank account in time although I had only 4 working days left after that Friday. On Friday morning, he informed me that the registration could not be done that day as the lawyers’ strike was not called off as expected and he would try his best for Saturday. It was a very depressing news to start the day with but I had no choice.
I went for my usual morning darshan of Baba, prayed hard and begged to Him to do whatever He thinks best and chanting His name throughout left to finish some other work I had in hand although in my mind I was feeling very depressed about not getting the registration done that day. At 1:00 pm, when I was pulling my car in front of a bank where I had some work, my phone rang and my sister informed me to rush to the sub-registrar’s office as the registration was scheduled for that afternoon and the buyer had tried desperately to contact me over phone several times regarding this. This came to me as a pleasant surprise! I rushed home, took all the documents and left for the sub-registrar’s office picking up the gentleman on the way who was helping me in the entire process. On reaching the place, I was surprised because the place, which is always over crowded, was very deserted as no activity was taking place because of the lawyers’ strike. When I met the attorney of the buyer, the first think that attracted my attention was a picture of Baba on a book on his table. I spontaneously asked him if that was a Shri Sai Satcharitra and he said no but it was a dairy with Baba’s picture as its cover. I can’t express how overwhelmed I was with emotions when I saw this as I knew Baba was there with me at every step. Then the next thing the lawyer asked me was to submit all the documents supporting my identity and also asked for two passport size photos. I had been told to bring the documents supporting my identity but was not asked to bring photos. When I was thinking what to do, I remembered that I carried this bag every time I go to India and I vaguely remembered I had taken a passport photograph two years back to have a mobile phone registered in my name. I frantically searched inside the bag and found a small envelope and when I looked inside to see if I had any passport photographs left, Baba by His sheer magic produced exactly two passport size photos from that envelope! My heart was filled with gratitude for the ever Karunamaya Baba.
Then while gathering all the documents, the attorney wanted a witness and the gentleman who was with me agreed to be one. The lawyer then asked him to produce his identification. He said that he was not carrying his identification documents with him. The attorney asked if he was carrying his driver’s license as most people do as that would suffice. He is an old man who rarely drives and so said ‘no’ to his question. When we were planning to drive him home to get his identification documents, another miracle happened. He just checked all the papers that were inside his pocket and lo and behold, his driver’s license was inside his pocket. In the next four long hours, there were many obstacles and many ‘ifs and buts’ like the person typing the agreement was missing for an hour for lunch, the so called Bada Babu whose writing in a red pen on the stamp paper is the final verdict of Lord Vasudeva before the document could be registered was to leave for his village at 3:00 pm, the final signing by the official who was roaming all over the city was to be done clandestinely away from the office as all the operations were closed officially because of the strike etc. At 7:30 in the evening, the sale deed was finally signed and registered, not inside any office but under a peepal tree, which reminded me of the Neem tree where Baba used to sit and meditate and I was convinced that the whole operation had Baba’s blessings. I was confident that the subsequent activities like depositing the money and repatriation of funds to my US account would go smoothly and would be completed within the limited time I had. This sounds like a mafia type operation straight out of a Bollywood movie but this was exactly how it happened and I knew it happened because of Baba’s grace and nothing else. Not surprisingly, when I met the branch manager next day, Baba reassured me of His presence at every step of the process by showing me His beautiful image from the ring on the finger of the branch manager. It is needless to say, the conversion rate that was going up steadily for the past several months showing a stronger dollar against rupee declined dramatically and I got more dollars than I was expecting all due to Baba’s grace.
My writing has become rather long but I had to write all the details as I wanted my fellow devotees to see how Baba never leaves the hand of His child at any stage although He keeps testing his/her ‘Shraddha’ and ‘Saburi’ all the time in the process. One who passes this test is sure to get His grace. So dear devotees, never lose your heart, keep praying to Baba with unflinching devotion and you will surely achieve the goal of your life. I pray to Baba to give me a place at His lotus feet and also to help all my fellow brothers and sisters who have taken His ‘ashraya’ (shelter). Om Sai, Shri Sai, Jai Jai Sai. Om Shri Sai Nathaya Namah. Om Shri Samarth.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from USA says: Om Sairam, this is the third experience that I am writing on this blog. The first two are yet to be published. I try and read this blog everyday and it gives me immense peace and at many times direction. Thank you Hetalji and team for maintaining this platform and thank you to all the devotees for sharing their experiences and miracles of our dear Sai.
I had recently started the Nav Guruvar Vrat for my children. I am blessed with good and healthy children, yet I worry that they may go astray with the social influences. I faced some unexpected obstacles in completing the Vrat and visiting Baba’s temple but I did my best to follow the norms of the vrat. At this time I was also facing a lot of issues with my husband and there was no peace at home. I put my faith in Baba and asked Him to show the way. As the Vrat progressed, in week 7, I was unexpectedly offered a promotion at work for a job which was not even posted. I was shocked and realized that this was possible only through the grace of Baba. Also, I felt like I had a clear idea of how to do my duties at home without being overly attached. This helped improve the situation at home too.
Baba, please always keep us in Your care. Guide my children to be on the right path even if they are faced with many temptations in their life. Let them always find solace in Your presence. Thank You Baba for saving my son from being run over when he was getting on the school bus. May Your protective hand ever be over him. Thank You for helping my daughter get good grades despite her challenging courses and restoring her confidence. Thank You for Your every day’s presence and then many, many miracles in our life. Please bless and take care of all Your devotees. Please bless my sister with a good job that she has been waiting for so long. Om Sairam.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from UK says: Jai Sai Ram to all. I had promised Baba that I will share this experience with everyone so that someone could benefit from this experience. I pray to Baba to help me write this. I would also like to thank Hetalji for creating this blog. This is helping so many people around the world. May Baba bless her always.
I had introduced formula to my 6 weeks son. Initially it was fine but after 3-4 days he started to cry bitterly in the evening for long hours. We tried everything but nothing worked. One evening was so bad that he did not even take his feed. I got very tensed and called the 111 number where the doctors provide help over the phone. After talking to the doctor he asked to get the baby to the clinic as they needed to examine him. It was midnight when we went to the hospital. I was getting very scared as he was in so much pain and all bad thoughts came in my mind as my son had suffered a lot due to acute jaundice and I was worried that it’s not related to that. On the way, I prayed to Baba that the doctor should say everything is fine and nothing to worry and my Baba again listened to me as the doctor said that my son was colic and asked to stop giving him formula for few days and then see. I was so pleased that all was well and nothing major to worry about. Baba again came to help me and proved that He is always with His children. It’s just that we have to call Him with pure heart. Jai Sai Ram. May Baba Bless All.

Om Sai Ram to all and thank you Hetalji and her entire team for such a wonderful platform to share our experience and read other’s experiences. I am a small devotee of our beloved Baba.
Coming to my experience Sunday 18th November 2018 my friend called and said that her parents lost their luggage during the travel from Delhi to Kolkata by flight. They had three baggage, 2 baggage had been found and delivered to them but the third one was not found and they were very tensed. I spoke to them and spoke to the airport authority but they were also unable to give us any proper information. We all were kept trying to find the reason and at last I prayed to our Sai that please help my friend’s parents and help to get back their luggage as soon as possible. I promised Him that if they found their luggage I would write my experience and His miracles on this Blog. Today 20th November 2018 evening I came to know that baggage had been found but not delivered them yet. I am quite relieved and thank You my Sai from the bottom of my heart for answering my prayers. He is really great. As per my promise I write my experience by Baba’s grace. Baba please forgive my sins and bless me always. Om Anantakoti Brambhando Nayak Rajadhiraj Yogi Rah Para Brambha Sri Sachidananda Sadguru Sai Nath Maharaj Ki Jay. Thank You and sorry if I did any mistakes in my writing, I am not a good writer.

Baba pulled me into His fold by making me believe in His miracles by constantly surrounding me with His devotees. During this phase I was separated from my husband and had a child who was 2 years old. My husband had cheated on me constantly and was harassing me continuously. I had almost given up on the relationship and then requested Baba to save me from him if he wasn’t the right person. For 2 years after I initiated divorce I was almost about to give up in spite of constant assurances from my Baba that I would be given justice. Finally my ex came forward to separate as he was already living with his girlfriend in Australia and wanted to get married to her. It was Baba’s miracle that I held on for so long without any support from anybody. I was so relieved Baba that he wouldn’t hurt me or my child anymore. But now his family has again started harassing me. Please save me Baba, he has already moved on in his life and never cared about his son. But now that my son understands everything he and his family wants to manipulate him. Please protect my son Baba. Please be with me and help me.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from UK says: Om Sairam. I am a devotee of Baba since few years. When I read these experiences my belief becomes very strong, sometimes I find happiness and peace after reading the experiences of Sai devotees.
I have so many experiences with my Sai. I even posted few experiences.
Now coming to my recent experience, we were searching for an alliance (life partner) for my sister since few years but nothing worked out. But one fine day I prayed to Sai maa that “if my sister gets married within 3 months then I will post my experience” Baba helped us to get a good alliance for my sister and the marriage took place within 3 months. Thank You so much Baba. Sorry Baba for the delay in posting my experience. Devotees please have “Shraddha” and “Saburi” and Baba will take care of you. Just share everything with Baba; He will take care of everything. He will give you right things at the right time. Baba please bless my sister with a healthy baby. We both are doing Global Mahaparayan as well. Please forgive me Baba if I did any mistakes in my writing. Please forgive me Baba for my mistakes in my life. Baba, please bless me, my family, my parents and all Your devotees with good health and good nature. Om Sairam Sachidananda Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai. Love You so much Baba.
