Shirdi Sai Baba Miracles and Leela in this Post:
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from USA says: I’m a housewife, currently residing in USA. My love and devotion for Baba was planted like a little seed when I was 15. Throughout all my life Baba has stood beside me. I don’t know where to express my humble gratitude towards Baba. Please forgive me if there are any mistakes in my narration. Baba wanted me to write this collection of my experiences here. Om Sairam.
My worship and devotion towards Baba is unconditional. I moved to another state from New Jersey a year ago. Here I don’t have access to reach Baba temple frequently like earlier and due to my busy schedule, work and all other silly reasons, I feel that I am not paying good attention towards Baba as I had before. This guilty feeling is developing more; and more I feel insecure. I’m talking to myself – “Baba You have truly loving, honest devotees in millions around You, I’m not praying you and loving You enough like before. I did not do any parayan since few years, when I was in difficulties every time I used to bug You that please Baba please Baba get me out of this situation. Obviously You did lend Your hand to me and I would be out from that situation peacefully. Now I’m relaxed not even thinking about You, Baba. Don’t You feel bad that You did so much for this selfish girl who now not caring You?”
I was picturing myself bad in front of Baba. To my wonder same day I received a message from an old friend asking that if I was willing to join in Mahaparayan group in WhatsApp? Baba was still treating me as His child. I joined the group, where welcoming message from the group admin says Baba handpicked each and everyone in the group to do this Mayaparayan. I wonder Baba listens to me as always. That messages meant a lot to me! Thanks to beautiful souls who invoking kindness and bhakti (devotion) again for so many people like me.
From past 2 years I went to Baba’s temple very few times since here in the US you need to depend on someone to go temple. After I started Parayanam my son’s maths tuition was scheduled on Saturdays which is 1 hour drive from our place. The management requested parents for change in schedule to Thursday evenings. In the meantime of his tuition we are going to Baba’s temple now. It’s been 2 months I started Mahaparayan and I went to temple many times now. During Ramanavami, we used to perform Ramakalayanam every year in Venkateswara Swamy temple. This year Baba dragged us to His temple and blessed us to be part of Sitarama Kalyanam in front of Him. Truly blessed. I feel like I’m in a trance state. I’m in another world. Love You Baba.
From my college days (1999) my love and devotion towards Baba started as a seed planted. I often go to Baba’s mandir and listen to experiences from elders. Sai Maa came in my dreams asking me to read Sai leela parayanam (written by Ekkirala Bardwaja Garu). I did not take it seriously as I didn’t know from where do I get that book. A Year later in a college announcement it was said that our current principal was moving to another place and new Principal was going to take charge. While people were thinking about the new principal I strongly felt in my mind Baba is coming here. To my surprise Principal who took charge in next week just looks like Sri Sainath Maharaj. He had white beard, brahmin, kind person just looks like Babaji. I wish I could Publish his photos.
I was wondering how come Baba came like a common man, same day I lost my key chain which had Baba photo in it. I was searching for that, I almost had tears in my eyes all of a sudden how come principal sir reached me I don’t know and asked, ”Why are you searching for something? I am here, open your eyes”. I don’t know why he said that to me. I fixed in my mind that He is my Baba. I had the utmost respect & devotion in him.
Next day I went to library, in my college library I found Sai leela parayanam (Written by Bardwaja garu) book. Librarian said that is Principal Sir’s personal one. I borrowed from him for a week. I was so busy those days I didn’t know whether I could complete that book in a week, so I sat on back bench while class was going on, hiding this book under the bench and reading. While reading my principal visited the class (which he never does) he entered and he called me by my name. I stood up. He asked “Did you understand? Are you able to follow what you are reading?” I did namaskaram to him. Whole class room was thinking what’s happening, why he was asking me and used to wonder how both of us grew so affectionate in a small period of time. Only I could understand what was happening. That evening without intimation some higher officers visited college and they wanted to check students’ ability, among 500 students they picked 3 students. I was one of them. They gave a topic (do you think Arjuna is great among pandavas) and asked us to talk about it. I looking into my principal’s eyes for his permission he nodded his head with a pleasant smile. With Baba’s sign, I did exceedingly well and for that they rewarded me with cash prize and Bhagwad geeta from my principal. He put his hand on my head. Traces of my attitude and ego were gone. As soon as college finished I got placed for a job. That cash prize of 108/- rs was so precious to me on those days. I put it behind Baba’s photo for so many years, later realized this is Baba’s money not mine. I put that money in Baba’s hundi. Touchwood, from that day I never had any trouble for money.
It’s been 17 years since we left college. After Mayaparayan started, through facebook my Principal (aged above 70) connected with me asking me, ”How are you doing maa?” Showering blessings on my family, Baba is talking to me. Similarly I have so many experiences which strengthens my devotion in Baba.
Like every middle class girl I too went through different emotions of roller coaster at this period of age. As a loving kid to your parents you can’t imagine they are suffering to get you settled. Marriage is quite expensive depending on your caste yes that is the harsh truth. My dad was in huge losses in the business at that time. One of his friends promised to arrange the money before marriage. With trust in him we fixed engagement and marriage but in the meantime Daddy’s friend encountered a very bad situation. We understood that we were not getting any help from him. This was very hard time for my parents. Wedding date was nearing. First time I saw tears in my Dad’s eyes while talking to Mom. I cried like anything in front of Baba. I don’t want my parents to go through this situation; what to do now? At 11 pm at night my dad’s friend knocked on the door and he gave a money bag to daddy. He said, “I promised you, after all this difficult situations also my word never goes down. I may not attend the wedding but my blessings with you amma. He said that to me and left.” Who else came in the form of him other than my Babaji?
The real story begins now with wedding transitions, changing yourself according to the in-laws is not a cakewalk, definitely not! The person you trusted and loved for the entire life will become so diplomatic. You can neither share with your parents and make them sad nor be able to bear it. I was really upset with people around me. I never ever treated servant maid or even animals like the way I was treated. Here comes our Baba, always preached us to be quiet, stay calm & saying all you need is patience. I zipped myself for a few years. Now everyone likes me in the family. I wonder what if I had reacted wildly on those days? Would I remain in the same family with love and respect that I’m getting here now. If you wholeheartedly believe doer is Baba. You will achieve. Readers must be having thousands of experiences like me.
One day I was in a rush in the morning. My husband went fast to take a shower. By that time I made Upma, right from the stove top I kept hot upma in a bowl, offered it to Baba. The steam from that Upma had placed water bubbles on left upper side of Baba statue. I was talking to Baba, “Aiyyo… Baba did you get hurt because of that steam? You must not be because You cooked by mixing rice with Your bare hand. How could You get hurt with this small vapour.” My husband came out from shower and told me in a rush that he had poured very hot water on himself and was hurt badly. The place where he showed me was his upper left shoulder. Same where the steam had caused bubbles to Baba’s statue. I was in shock and took that bowl off from Baba. Baba is literally talking to me in every situation can’t He??? Om Sai Ram! So many instances happened in my life like this. I’m truly blessed Baba. This is going to be too long if I recollect every miracle so whatever Baba asking me to share I will write.
I used to work in Bangalore. One day in office it was raining heavily. I did not get any kind of transport to reach home. Phone battery was drained (2007). I reached halfway by shared auto. They dropped me near a place that was very dark surrounded with trees, no power. As it was heavily raining I didn’t have place to stand. I thought I cannot reach home. Praying continuously ‘Sai Sai’ before I finished my Nama japam 108, one auto came to me and asked me where I wanted to go? Before I requested him; he asked me to get in. By looks he was very dark, short kind of suspicious face. If it was a normal day I would have chosen not to go but now I was drenched and I had no other choice. I trusted Baba and got in. He said, ”Madam in this heavy rain, without power on roads how could you stand alone on this dangerous road at night 8:30. Do you know what is your position? You have gold ornaments on you as well, please be very careful.” I was wondering is this Baba talking to me. Before I finished talking to myself he said, “Yes, I’m here to send you home safely.” On those days there were no autos in Bangalore after 8 pm that too in the rain. He charged normal meter price when they ask for double or more. I asked him to take more money on that meter price and I thanked him. He said, “give me meter price not even 1 rupee more than that.” Tell me who else was that person. He wasBaba to me on that horrible day. Don’t judge people by their looks; lesson taught.
I had PCOD. It had been 3 years not conceived yet. I prayed to Baba and did Sai parayanam. Whenever I finish my parayanam (Saptaham) I get a chance to visit some holy place. I went to Shirdi. Soon after that I conceived. As per astrology I had a bad phase at the time of delivery. Doctor said because of complications they couldn’t go for normal so fixed a date to do C section on April 21-2008. That day on April 8th I was reading a book. Baba’s word to me in the dream was, ”Yes you have difficulty in delivery as per astrology but you be relaxed I will take care of everything. Trust me keep reading holy books for 3 days do not leave them for a while, 3rd day you will be having a baby boy.” My mom and family was worried and making their arrangements for April 21st operation. I said to my mother April 12th I’m going to have a boy. It’s going to be normal. My mom was a great devotee of Baba, still she did not believe me. From 9th night I had false pains. On 12th I said will go to the hospital. I literally slowly walked to hospital (about 1/4th KM) at 8:30 am, and they said bag was broken immediately sent me to labor. First time in real I felt Baba’s hand on my head during labour and by 1:10 pm I had my baby boy with me. Om Sai Ram!
When my son was 6 months my husband was relocated to US for his work. Again existence with infant became challenging for me. Only Baba helped me. My Son was like 8 months, he had loose motions, vomits and was very sick. I couldn’t handle him and no medicine was working. Baba in my dream said, “I will take care of him don’t worry, I will give him injection.” Morning when I saw, in his hand he had a drop of blood (if someone argues it might be mosquito bite, definitely No). He has that injection mark still on his hand and he is 10 years now. I don’t know how I passed 7 months without my husband. With Baba’s blessings he booked Visa Appointment for me and my kid. No one was ready to come with me to Chennai Visa office. I was so nervous those days to do any kind of official work. My son is hyperactive. I could not leave him on the floor for 5 mins without attention. Needed to carry him all the time. I was so worried about Visa interview as to how I was going to manage filling all the papers taking out papers from the folders and they didn’t allow any toys or snacks for kid how could I manage? As usual my rescue Baba came into the picture. One young guy (age of my brother), met me in queue. He introduced himself as a pediatrician and said “I know a lot about kids, give me your son, I will take care of him.” He is like Baba to me. On that day my son literally jumped on him. He said, “you must be tired. You relax, I will take care of him.” I did all my jobs there peacefully. Even when I asked him to give my baby that guy was telling I feel like I have some attachment with this boy from long. I later realized that I didn’t even ask his name, number or any details. He helped a lot. I did not even thanked him properly. In my return journey to hometown I was praising Baba. “You are the one Who made this work easy. I did not recognize that doctor is you.” Same time my car stopped at a signal, I saw a poster on the opposite vehicle. Doctor saves you always. Namaskar to Baba and tears rolled down from my eyes. Whatever you are talking to yourself, Baba listens and responds to you in any way.
When he was 4 years old, he was very naughty. I had PCOD problem, mood swing. I couldn’t control him. One day I gave him punishment. Later I felt very bad that how impatient I was. Again as I was saying sorry to Baba about my behaviour towards my kid. He appeared in my dream and He was very angry at me. He said “You have no rights to punish him. In your destiny you had no chance of having a baby. I gave him from my body.” I promised Baba that day I will try to be patient. As he said, after a couple of years I had a second pregnancy after consulting so many specialists around US. I was so happy but still keep thinking about Baba words that in my destiny I didn’t have this opportunity. I was wondering, ”Did Baba bless me again?” It was my inner conscience suspecting fate. In 5th month it got aborted with unknown reasons though I was having a healthy pregnancy. I went into a bad phase and depression. At that time Baba showed me that “unborn baby had nerve connection problem, if the baby was born then the baby would be having a very difficult time and I don’t want you to suffer.” I understood and calmed myself.”
Sometimes whatever you wish doesn’t happen. Don’t blame Baba. He knows what is good and best for us.
After relocating to US in the first few months itself, I really understand what is life. People in India think “ohhh…these people went to US they are earning good money, car (which is basic here no public transportation is available), luxurious life.” Seriously that may be true for other category people but whoever I met here is always only bodily presents here. Thoughts and love for their parents is always there and are missing home and their own country life. Journey here is like sailing on 2 boats, fighting with your own thoughts. Ladies who have horrible conditions in in-law’s place love to stay here for initial days. Baba will pack them to US. (Just kidding ). They will have some calm and peaceful time for their soul and mind. I did wish to stay at least for 2 more years though I badly missed my loving parents, friends, place where I walked, temples I used to go to. My mind says go back, again inner voice says stay back you have peace. I kept my visa status issue on Baba’s feet. Baba it’s Your wish whether I stay here or come back. Be ready Baba if I come back again I will start bugging You. I may not have same patience as before. I can’t tolerate Baba. He extended my Visa, and they did filed for GC.
May Baba bless you all with good wealth and health.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from UK says: I am a small devotee of Sai Baba since last 10 years. The life I am leading is nothing but the blessing of our beloved God, Sai Baba.
Om Sairam. This is my 4th experience in this forum. Thanks to Hetalji and team for maintaining such a wonderful platform which gives immense strength especially in tough times.
I lost my mother 10 years ago. Since then, whatever issues I face, I always turn towards our Sai Baba. I feel His presence every day. This experience is regarding my brother’s marriage.
My brother turned 30 and we started looking for alliance when he turned 29. He is in IT field. He was preparing for Government exams for nearly 5 years but couldn’t clear them though he went till interview stage a couple of times. Then when he turned 26, we decided that he will get into IT. By Baba’s grace, now he is working in the domain which he likes and earning well. To reach this stage wouldn’t have been possible without Baba’s grace. So many hardships were there.
Relatives brought alliances which were not at all suitable to our family. We were so afraid that we might not get a girl as we expected as he was already 30. Astrologers told that his marriage should get fixed before June 2019 otherwise, he will get married at 34 only. But, by God’s grace, his marriage got fixed with a girl as we expected. And the girl herself is a Sai devotee. My brother lost trust in God when our mom expired. So I was praying that he should get a wife who is also a Sai devotee. This was really a miracle. Baba listened and listens to my each and every prayer. Without Sai Baba’ grace, there is no chance that it would have happened. And the close relatives who created problems for me before my marriage also realised their mistakes and they started behaving well with me. The life being led by me and my family has been gifted by our Baba. I cannot explain in words. I am experiencing that every minute. Please be with us all, always. Om Sairam.
Shirdi Sai Devotee Padma from India says: I believe in Baba more than my parents.
Om Sairam to all Sai devotees. I live in Bangalore and my name is Padma. I do not know when I came to Baba’s feet. One of my friends introduced me to do Sai Pooja every Thursday and she gave me a calendar of Baba with a small picture in it. And with great faith in Him I started my journey with Him. I had many miracles with Him but I am going to narrate to you only that happened yesterday.
I had lost my earring in my daughter’s marriage. I really did not remember where I had placed it. I searched for it everywhere and wondered if it was really hard earned then I will not lose it and kept quiet. This happened last year June, 2018. I used to remember it but felt very bad that I could not find it. I started diya Pooja for 5 weeks for my son’s education. This Thursday was the 3rd week and I finished my Pooja. Then Friday as usual I did my Pooja and after that I went to keep something in my Almira (cash box) and suddenly my hands went to the corner of my cash box and I picked a small box in which my lost earring was there. I was really surprised because so many times I had searched the cash box and had checked all the corners. I was very sure that the box was not there but yesterday evening Friday after Pooja I got this box completely after 1 year.
I do not know the reason why Baba hid this box from me; may be to test me. Because every time I tell Baba whatever is with me is Your gift and whatever I lose maybe it is Your wish. My family, my house and my everything is my Baba’s gift. He is the head of my family and always gives me what is good and at a proper time and in a proper way. I thank all my Sai devotees to have Shraddha and Saburi with Him. I shall post my lots of His miracles next time. Om Sairam.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: I am lucky to be a wonderful daughter of our great soul Sai Baba. I have shared many experiences earlier and today I would like to pen down a few. With Baba’s blessing I delivered a healthy premature baby boy. On his 14th week vaccination he was very cranky and fever lasted for 48 hours. I was worried and begged for Baba’s blessing and then immediately he was fine and active. Same thing happened during next vaccination and Baba gave him strength to bear the pain and he was alright.
I have enrolled myself for Mahaparayan. Thanks to the entire team who is working behind. One more thing I would like to share, my parents have misplaced some 10gm gold item, I am sure Baba will listen to their prayer and make them find it soon. With Shraddha and Saburi I am completing my experience. Om Sairam.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: Sairam! I am a small devotee of Sai Baba from Bangalore. This is my first post. I’ve been to Shirdi some 20 years back since then I know Baba and sometimes I go to Sai Baba temple but from last 6-7 months I became an ardent devotee of Baba.
Yesterday was Uddyapana of my Vaibhav Lakshmi puja. At the time when I first started puja I prayed Baba to help successfully finish my puja and Uddyapana. Since 2-3 days it was heavily raining and weather report in net was also showing 100% chance of rain and thunderstorms on Friday. I just prayed Baba to help me by clearing sky so that all Sumangali come for Uddyapana. Here was Baba’s miracle, whole day it was cloudy and when I started puja in the evening heavy clouds started gathering. I just prayed Baba and in just 5 minutes all the clouds got cleared. By 7.30 every one went back and the rain started around 8.30. Jai Sairam.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from USA says: I am a Sai Baba devotee for 11 years. He is my everything; father, mother, guru, guide, love and faith. He has always saved me and stood beside me in my every walk of life.
I have a 17 month old baby. My husband usually travels a lot for work and I am stuck at home with the baby. I don’t know how to drive. So whenever my husband travels I will be scared as to how do I go about if anything unforeseen happens. I usually pray to Deva to take care of us. He keeps His promise. This time also He took care of us. My baby was suffering from ear infection and was very cranky. I also had my monthly problem. But my Deva’s grace everything happened automatically. Deva please bless my baby and grant my other wishes soon. I am fed up. Ananthakoti Brahmanda Nayaka Rajadhi Raja Yogi Raja Parbrahama Shri Satchithananada Sadguru Aainath Maharaj Ki Jai. Sai Natharpanamasthu Shubambahvathu. Om Sairam
