Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from USA says: Om Sai, Sri Sai, Jaya Jaya Sai. Om Sai Baba. Greetings to all Sai devotees. Dear Sai devotees, I have been a Sai devotee for a long time, and have had several great experiences showered by our Sai on me and my family members. I want to sincerely thank Hetalji and her team for maintaining this site. It gives me strength and inspiration and thereby making my faith stronger in our Sai Baba, by reading our devotees’ experiences posted here. Here is my most recent experience. Thank You Baba.
Coming to my most recent experience. My younger son is a college undergraduate, now in his second year. He was a very good student until the early years of his high school. Around the 11 grade he started lacking focus in studies. We did not realize it until the end of 11th grade. In his 12th grade also he would not complete his home works. He would lie about his homework completion. During his tests I would sit with him and review the course work. He would do well at home but at school he would not do well. He has a great attitude, great manners; he respects everyone and cares for everyone. He was in a couple of clubs in school and did a lot of voluntary work. But when it comes to studies he finds excuses. After graduating from high school he has joined college in a nearby town which is about an hour away. He was excited that some of his friends from our town had also joined and was excited about the activities. We always encouraged him to participate in various club activities and would inquire him about how he was doing in them, how he and his friends contributed etc.
In his first semester he worked hard and got some decent grades. In his second semester, he was taking Chemistry II, which he felt tough. I advised him to take tutoring and found a tutor. He took tutoring classes for about 3 to 4 weeks and stopped taking them. When I realized that I was not getting billed for tutoring and asked him, he said, “I do not want to waste your money”. So I advised him to drop the course, which if he did before a certain date it would not affect his GPA. I would not get any money back, but was more concerned about his GPA. The night before the deadline, I called him up and suggested him to drop the course. I prayed to Sri Sai that everything should go well. My son said that he would do it and next day he did not bother to drop the course, and lied to me saying that he had dropped it. I was not sure why he had done that, even after me, amicably, suggesting him to drop the course. I came to know this at the end of the semester when we were looking at his semester GPA. This Chemistry course came as Fail. Not only this he had another course which he was doing well and did not submit the final paper due to which he got an Incomplete. This has brought his GPA to a very low score. I was upset why he was doing this and was really upset with our Sai, as why He was not helping my son to correct himself.
Every time my son came home, I made him to pray Sri Sai before leaving home. I felt very helpless, and I was not sure what made my son act that way. During holidays I sat with him, encouraged him saying if he was not interested in Sciences he should pursue another field. We both agreed to talk to the advisor and met his advisor. The advisor suggested that he should bring up his GPA and then he could change his majors. So for the 2nd year first semester; my son registered the courses he felt comfortable. He was doing fine till half way through the semester and once again stopped doing assignments towards the end of the semester. Initially I checked his grades on the college portal and stopped doing it half way through the semester, as I did not want him to feel that I was behind his back all the time and also thought I should not baby sit him, but give him some space. He had to learn on his own to make himself accountable since he was now a college second year student. We felt that he was kind of going into depression as he would eat too much sometimes.
Whenever we reach him on phone he usually responds. He either answers the phone or atleast replies via text. Last week, which was the final week of classes before fall exams, I and my wife tried to reach him on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. He had not responded to our calls. My wife saw that he was on Whatsapp on Monday and Tuesday but did not even acknowledge our calls. We both started to fear and on Wednesday we did not see him using Whatsapp. We both had bad thoughts as to what might have happened and why he was not answering. On Thursday, I was working from home and praying to our Sai of and on to make sure everything should be ok with my son. In the afternoon around 2:30 pm I was going to leave for work and as per my routine before I left home, I tried to make a point to enter puja room, see Sri Sai’s picture and step out. I stepped into the Puja room, kneeled before Sri Sai and earnestly prayed to Him saying, “Baba please bless my son. Please make sure that he is safe. I am not sure what condition/situation he is in or he ran into. He usually acknowledges if he cannot talk, but we haven’t heard from him. I am feeling scared. You are my only hope. Baba please give me an indication that he is safe, that is all I need”. I left home around 2:30 pm and by 2:40 pm my son acknowledged to my text that I had sent the previous night. It was a total surprise. My joy knew no bounds when our Sai answered my sincere prayer. I was so excited. I thanked Baba and replied to my son thanking him for responding back.
I want to iterate to all devotes to keep faith in our Baba. He has and will answer our earnest prayers. This is a great experience especially after all the anxiety that both me and my wife had for the previous 2 to 3 days. Dear devotees I am not sure why my son is acting the way he is with his academics. It may be my inexperience in dealing with him on the issue, but I am sincerely praying our Baba to help him correct his attitude when dealing with studies and atleast work towards obtaining decent grades and not lie about his studies. I am requesting all of you to keep him in your prayers for improving his attitude and focus towards studies. My prayers to Sri Sai are to make him responsible and get his work done and graduate him without any issues and delays. I can only hope that our Baba will answer my prayers. May Sri Sai bless everyone. Om Sai, Sri Sai, Jaya Jaya Sai.

OM SAI RAM These 3 are the magical words which have bought a lot of happiness in my world and those are breathing words to me “Oms AIR am”. I would like to thank Hetalji and the entire team for their fabulous and fantastic work on this website by helping us read and share the experiences. This is Modern Sai Satcharitra after Baba’s Samadhi.
Coming to my experience, I resigned my job thereby becoming mad day by day and no one understands my pain and everyone is busy in their life. I resigned for my husband but he himself needs some private time for him during weekends and weekdays he is busy with office work. Then I didn’t understand with whom I need to spend my time and get help in getting my work done.
Initially I tried to explain him about my situation, but he was not listening and as days passes my pain increases and become frustrated. Sometimes I shout and yell on my husband and my husband’s behaviour also equally grows mad. So, he started doing strike i.e., he will not talk with me for 2-3 days, if I ask why then he would increase the number of days. If I speak any extra word then another day increases. I cried that I need to spend more time with him, but he was making me reverse not able to give a single minute i.e. during that strike time I should not talk with him and whatever he does I should not disturb him. He was not to help in any household nor does he do his work but simply was spending those 3-4 days of time watching movies.
It was paining me so much. We are middle class and have a kid too. We too handle work during weekends only but if he strikes like that then what I have to do. I don’t have my parents, siblings and nobody to talk about myself, so he takes full advantage whatever he does no one are there to question him. I used to cry and try to convince him but he would increase the days if I tried to talk with him. Then I got frustrated and started yelling. Then he used to beat me hardly, pull my legs and dragged me after the main door and locked the main door. My kid (9 years) is an active chap and by seeing our fights he was becoming dull day by day and was not able to convince me and my husband. I used to cry in front of Baba and told Him that He was thinking that I don’t have anyone, whatever he does to me nobody are there to ask but You are there for me then why don’t You ask him? How many times I asked Baba but no reply. Finally this created mess in our community and they tried to convince us but it was of no use. He will not and doesn’t want to change since my parents and siblings left me after using me (money, jobs) and left me. As a husband he must support me, and he tried talking with my parents also, but no one listens after they got what they wanted. Then they ignored me and my family. I tried to convince my parents also but they were not listening and I tried my level best and finally left it to God. So, he also got a chance thinking that if he will not listen what I can do. Since I can’t do anything, he will not bother my words, my decisions, any works and if I talk more, then started strike, this went for a year.
One day I could not control because every time he will tell 2-3 days and increase every day, but this time started with 2 weeks and was increasing every week. I prayed to Baba, You say Saburi. I waited patiently but my husband instead of changing he is increasing his bad habits day by day. Where my Saburi has gone?
During that time I got one job opportunity so wanted to discuss them and went to his room but he became angry and wanted to leave his room soon if I didn’t listen. I was about to go only that he pulled my leg and dragged me to outside and locked the door. During that time my kid came back from school. So, I called to leasing office and tried to get the key. They came to handover keys since he locked side lock too, me and my kid were outside and couldn’t open the door. So leasing people came and tried. Then he started shouting. Then they called police and then I again started crying and beating myself since I couldn’t tell anything to him. If I tell, he again beats me. I prayed to Baba, stating nothing should happen even after police comes and if so then I will post my experience. Then after some time the police came and my husband also came to the normal mood. So, police took enquiry like our details from both of us and left smoothly. I thanked my Baba for saving us in this.
Sairam Gentleman, who are reading this, my sincere request kindly understands your wife’s love and responsibility towards you. Again I am telling only your wife will think about you and your family. You are special only to her and not anyone remember that. Infact, what wife expects from any husband love, sometimes affection but again remember if she wants this then she can get it from anyone and in this society everybody are ready to take the chance but she doesn’t want to do wrong. That’s why whatever husbands do shout, beat, yell at her again she will again seek his love and take care of him and his kids and family. So, ladies/gents who are in my position, kindly pray Baba to remove misunderstandings and have good understanding between wife and husband and lead their life happily. Remember no blood relation will take care of you till the end and only your life partner. So try to get some good memories. I am planning to start parayan group to remove misunderstanding between wife and husband. If wife and husband are in good relation then that family, children will grow in good manner else children’s future and family’s reputation go wrong. So kindly understand and pray for me and everyone having good understanding between wife and husband. My husband will not drink, infact he is very good but very, very stubborn. I am sharing this just to tell about addiction whether its drink or movies or any other habit that stops your growth and kills you. May Baba bless every couple with life lasting understanding and happiness together. Sri Satchidhanandha Smartha Sadhguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai.

Dear Sai devotees, I want to share Sai Baba 5 day’s pooja for wish fulfilment. You need to do this pooja for consecutive 5 days at the same time. I mean if you are performing pooja at morning 9 am then it should be the same time for rest of the days. Minor changes in time of 1 to 2 mins can be ok but do not do this deliberately. To start the pooja, Thursday is preferable but you can start from any other day also. For 5 days, you need to light 5 diyas in front of Sai Baba’s idol or photo, light 1 or more incense sticks, offer 1 fruit, offer 1 flower. Then do Sai naam smaran or whichever mantra you like. Then Sai 108 namavali. Then Sai Bavni or Sai Chalisa, Sai dhun, or whatever chant or song you like. It is not necessary to do all that I mentioned above. You can sing or chant or read anything related to Sai. Do it atleast for half an hour or more. If you can do it for 1 hour or more, it is well and good. In the end, do Sai Baba’s arti. Time of pooja one has to decide according to one’ s desire to pray to Sai Baba. It is not a rigid factor. The most important thing is Love and devotion. For whatever time you do the pooja, you need to do with utmost love and having faith in Baba that He will surely help you and you have trust in His justice and in His timings for you. In the end, distribute prasad among the family members. On the 5th day, tell this pooja to minimum 5 people. If possible give food to hungry and needy people, cow(because she is our mother), animals and birds around youor to whomever you want to feed. You need to have feeling in your mind that you feed Baba only by giving food to any jiva(any animal or man) as written in Sai Satcharitra. If possible you can also read 1 chapter or 1 paragraph or even more from Sai satcharitra. It is not mandatory. But you can do if you want. Thank you for reading this pooja. I am doing this pooja and I want to share this with you all. I hope our faith in Sai Baba enhances by each passing day and we feel His grace during this life and upcoming births. I hope we make earth a better place to live by spreading holy vibrations of God’s name in this Kaliyuga. Om Sairam.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: I am a Sairam devotee like all others. Thank you Hetalji and team for this noble work. I have a small experience to share.
I have a son who was asking me to take to his grandma’s house from past one week. Usually I take him once or twice in a month to stay for a day. But this month I was planning to take him later. Then I told my husband about our son’s request to visit his grandma’s house. He asked me to take him on the weekend. This I had to inform to my mother-in-law as she usually doesn’t like sending us to my mother’s place and most of the times she sends us half-heartedly. I was planning how to say it to my mother-in-law about going to my mother’s place. Then all of a sudden my mother-in-law told me to go to a doctor since I was not well. Taking this as an opportunity I told her that I will go to my mother’s house for which she agreed. Thank You Sairam, You heard my request even before I asked. Please Sairam bless my brother with a good job and a good wife. Let him have a happy life. Bless my parents with good health. Bless my husband, son and in-law’s family with good health and good life. Om Sri Sairam.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: I am from India. I am sharing my fourth experience. This blog gives me lot of courage and always assures me that Baba is there to protect us always. I am fortunate having come to know about this blog.
Coming to my experience, my daughter’s nose operation was over last week. Today after nearly seven days I wanted to take her out. Being afraid after being suffering with her nose problem I was sure that she would be reluctant to come out. But from morning I was praying Baba to give her courage and make her come out. She agreed and came out with me. We were happily shopping for nearly 5 hours with minimum difficulty due to her heath issue. Baba would surely cure her completely and make her do her works on her own. Om Sairam I was praying that I would post my experience as soon as I enter the home from shopping. Morning only I was sure that I would be posting. Baba never leaves me. Baba get her out of this as early as possible as I am not able to see her suffer.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: Om Sairam to all the Sai devotees. I want to share with you all how Baba helped me sleep and healed my intense pain.
Last night I was suffering from cough and cold which is normal in winter season. I took medicines for the same, but after midnight I got very high fever. I could not breathe nor even move my legs. My whole body was paining and shivering. I kept remembering Baba for help. Time passed and passed. Now it was morning 9.00 am and I was lying on bed sleepless and breathless. I just asked Baba it’s up to You now what You want and started chanting His name Om Sairam. Within 10 mins after that I slept peacefully. Today I am in a much better condition. Thank You so much Saima for being there for Your children always. I love You. Please bless all Your children. Om Sairam.
