Shirdi Sai Baba’s Love Grace Miracle Stories:
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: I am from Kerala but settled in Bangalore. I was working as a teacher but have taken a break now. Please keep my name and email Id anonymous.
Hello everyone. I have been meaning to write some of my experiences for a long time but since I am not great at writing I kept delaying it. I have been a devotee of Baba for just over two years. In this period He has given me such experiences and support that I feel that I must have done some good karma in the past. He called me closer to Him when I was going through a tough and hopeless time. Yes, He has tested my faith and patience all the while and there were times when I used to cry in front of Him and scold Him for all the bad things that were happening in my life. But reading the experiences on your site has certainly made a good impact on me and I held onto Him.
Few experiences of the devotees stay close to my heart either because I could relate to the same as they were mirroring my life’s situation or because I was just astonished to see the faith and complete surrender of the devotees during their trying times. Reading these experiences made a huge impact on me. Since then I decided to share my experience hoping that my story could provide relief to other devotees too.
There were a lot of changes in me after coming in contact with Baba. I am actively trying to avoid being judgmental, avoid any unnecessary discussions or gossiping. I feel He is constantly watching over me and correcting me with each step I take. My outlook on life has changed. Yes, I am still not perfect but trying to change myself in a better way day by day.
Now coming to my experience: We had relocated from another state a few months back as part of my husband’s job change. At a different time, I will share the story of him getting his new job after I joined the Mahaparayan. My son, who is 13 years old, was enrolled in a new school after we changed cities. That too was a blessing of Baba which again I will share later. We had few issues with the way a teacher was teaching for a certain subject. My husband and I decided to discuss this matter with his class teacher. But the particular subject teacher didn’t take our feedback in a positive way. Since then, she made my son’s life miserable by constantly shaming in class and scolding him at every chance she got. Due to this my son, who was excellent in this subject previously, started to hate that subject and his scores became worse day by day.
I was clueless on how to handle this, as I realized that the more I discussed the matter at school, the worse she will treat my child. I kept praying to Baba the whole time to protect my child from her discouraging words. But the torture with words continued. Every time I heard that she passed a cruel comment on him I would get enraged and it spoiled my mood. Finally, she called us for a meeting. The email invite itself was quite rude. When I got the mail I planned on different ways to tell her how mean she had been to my son and various other issues that came up in the class. I was sure this meeting was not going to end well and my child was going to suffer even more.
On Thursday morning I prayed to Baba to guide me and also protect my child. I went to the question and answer page which I usually refer to. The response came that someone is troubling you but everything will be sorted out and work will be completed when two persons come together and with Baba’s grace disputes will be settled. Since then I had peace of mind and I prayed to Baba to stay in our mind and speak on our behalf during the meeting such that everything ends in a better way both for my child and his teacher. As expected, the meeting went off well and the teacher later on had a talk with my son. Long story short, she has started recognizing his potential and also talks pleasantly to him. My child also comes from school happily and I can surely see some positive changes in him. Through this experience Baba taught me that there should be no permanent hatred towards anyone in life and if you don’t like someone just walk away from him but never retaliate for their actions.
Another experience happened about two weeks back, around the same time when the teacher had called us for the meeting. My mother-in-law had gone to the doctor with general complaints about her health. The scan showed that there was some problem with her heart and they asked her to come for a thorough review with the cardiologist in two weeks’ time. The complication would have resulted in a surgery too. I was quite worried as going through a heart surgery at her age was not an easy thing. Since then I started taking Udi mixed with water and prayed to Baba to heal her. I also read Stavan Manjari during the time of her appointment with her doctor. In between the reading, I got a call from her saying that there was no problem and no medicine was also required as she was perfectly fine then. This was purely my Baba’s blessing. This experience is a proof of the power of Baba’s Udi. This experience also taught me to pray wholeheartedly with complete faith in Baba without any doubt or fear of an untoward thing to happen.
My little time with Baba and my experiences with Him in this short period has made me realize that Baba never expects any formal pujas or rituals in His name (I don’t even light a Diya at home). All that is required is pure faith and patience. Few of my friends who are also devotees of Baba tell me that Baba is partial and never answers their prayers. All I can say is that Baba has not granted all my prayers as I believe that He knows what is best for us in the long run. I don’t look at Baba as a wish fulfilling tree but I want Him to guide me to be a better person, take away all the negative thoughts and insecurities from my life and also to keep my family safe. Never indulge in unnecessary discussion or gossip or fault finding. We should use our time in doing something good and always remember His name even when you are working.
Good and bad times do come to every human being but hold on to our faith in Baba. I conclude by putting a phrase from Stavan Manjari which goes like this:
“The proximity of must (“KAASTURI”) makes even the dust more valuable;
The fragrance of flowers is transmitted to the thread which ties the garlands.
This is the way of the great. Whosoever they come in touch with, to him they impart a part of their greatness”. This is so true for whoever comes in touch with Baba. Baba never expects any ritualistic worship from us. We are all very lucky to be chosen by Him and be in contact with Him. Come what may, never lose trust in Him and hold on to Him tightly. He will carry us and protect us in His arms like a mother holds on to her baby. Om Sairam….!
Shirdi Sai Devotee Harish from USA says: I am a simple devotee of Baba. Om Sairam! My pranams to Hetalji and the entire team working for this divine platform. This is nothing less than modern Sai Satcharitra.
Experience 1 – Recently I have been fearing air travel. I keep seeing one or the other air crashes and it really pains me a lot. Not only that I tell Sai every night to keep all air travellers safe in the flight. I think it is brutal to die in an air crash. Anyways, I had to travel to another city by flight on business and I started having anxiety and panic attacks ahead of time and especially as my travel date was approaching. Few days prior I asked our beloved Sai on questions site and prayed to Him from the bottom of my heart and His answer was something like this, “You will travel. Anxiety, worry will be over”.
Right then, I became calm and composed myself and had full faith in His words, for His words can never be untrue. Yes, the day of travel came. I boarded the flight. Even prior to the flight the pilot announced the ride was going to be bumpy because of the route and weather. Yes, I got scared on hearing that but I immediately remembered Baba’s blessings. True to His words, it was a little shaky and I just kept chanting Sai Sai Sai… throughout the flight. Thus the onward journey was successful.
Now, coming to the return journey. They didn’t make any such announcements but yet the turbulence was still there and more I started fearing. Continuously I was chanting Sai Sai Sai… while remembering His Padam. Yes, with all that safely landed and got back home. Because, deep in my heart I knew that in the end everything would work out well and He would bring me back safe.
Experience 2 – Recently we had to go to New Jersey for a family function. During one of the days something came up and that made me upset. I asked Sai and he said, “You will return from travel. Remember Shri Sai Baba. Everything will be alright. You will get success”. I really cherished this message because Sai knew we were travelling and gave a timely message and made things right in His own perfect timing. Really I have nothing to fear when I am under His protective cover.
Experience 3 – Yesterday I had a doctor’s appointment with the neurologist. Just the day before I had completed Saptah reading of Shri Sai Satcharitra. I fully believe in doing Saptaha and that it destroys all calamities ahead of us unknown to our eyes. Sai gave me several signs during the past week prior to my appointment. “Good things will happen but remember it is due to blessings of Sai Baba” , “Don’t worry. You will be free from worry in two days. Remember Shri Sai Baba”. On the day of appointment I was assigned to read chapter 10 and 11 for Mahaparayan (MP) and it even more instilled my confidence and made me worry free. Really I got freed from my worry on the 2nd day itself as the doctor said that I had chronic migraine and nothing else to worry about.
Yes, it is true that sometimes our mind thinks all negative things. Faith fluctuates sometimes thinking about the outcomes and it is difficult to let go. I pray to You Sai to give everyone in this world to have firm faith in Your feet and let them be freed from worries. May Baba bless us all. Om Sai Sri Sai Jai Jai Sai.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee says: My post is about how Sai Baba saved me from two calamities, Car stuck and Surgery. I would request not to disclose my name, location or contact details. Apologies if my sentences are not in a proper way grammatically, or if I am not expressing well with clear meaning. I have posted some miracles in the past, now I want to post two miracles. Sorry Sai Baba for the delay in writing these experiences. By thinking I should write in detail, I kept postponing as I wanted to write and post as much as I could.
During December, we went out with family. My 4 years old daughter was very fuzzy as usual; she vomited on the way in the car. She is always very stubborn in nature. My husband and I managed to change her dress in the cold weather outside and she was a little calm. We thought of leaving from a parking lot. My husband was trying to start the car, but somehow the car was stuck in the snow. He tried to start the car many times, but the car never moved and there were parked cars in the front and back and too close. We were worried, as my daughter was very fuzzy too and we didn’t know what to do.
Usually it is very rare that someone comes closer and asks if we have any problem. Some stranger came near our car, he was having a beard. He asked my husband whether the car was stuck. Then he went and bought a bigger stone and he put that under the tyre and he guided my husband to drive back and forward and again back and forward, without stopping the engine. Finally with Sai Baba’s grace the car climbed the stone and started moving and we were able to move the car safely out of the congested parking place with his guidance. We thanked him and moved from there. He came to help us like Sai Baba, otherwise we do not know how many hours we would have been stuck there in a cold place having a kid with us. Thank You Sai Baba for saving us from that situation.
Second Miracle: When I went to check with OBG about my stomach cramping and routine check-up, the doctor scared me saying that there was some big ovarian cyst that I have on the right side and most probably it needs to be removed through surgery. She said that she wanted to see in a bigger scan to see the size etc., so she suggested I go for Ultrasound. I was scared to hear that news. I prayed for Sai Baba to save me. I didn’t want this surgery as I already underwent a big surgery in my inner ear a few years ago and with Sai Baba’s grace I was cured.
Also I have a kid to take care. I applied Udi on my stomach and after a few days I went for Ultrasound. To my surprise I received an email from the doctor saying that the Ultrasound was normal, whatever the cyst doctor noticed before got resolved on its own. It was purely His miracle. Thank You Sai Baba for saving us every moment in life by being with us. I wanted to write even more details, but sorry Sai Baba for writing it a little short. Sai Baba’s blessings to everyone to have a healthy and happy long life.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from Malaysia says: Om Sairam. I am just a small devotee of Sai Maa from 2017. What I can say about Baba’s miracles towards His devotee. He loves each one of us so dearly till we can ask for.
I would like to share about my experience that happened last night. Last few weeks I had itchiness on one my body and especially at night I would start feeling the itching and I couldn’t resist and I would scratch it very badly till getting wounded. I couldn’t sleep well in the night due to wounds, and had extreme burning feelings. I quickly took Baba’s Udi and prayed to Baba and applied Udi at the burning area. What a miracle! I felt a little burning and immediately the burning feeling stopped and I didn’t feel the itching anymore. Thank You so much Baba for You took away my pain and You were always there for me. Once I start praying Sai Maa, I receive a lot of messages from Baba regarding spirituality. I don’t have words to describe how much You’ve influenced Your way of life within me. I love You so much Sai Maa. Keep blessing all of Your devotees and please keep the world peace and harmony. Om Sairam.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from USA says: I was 7th month pregnant when I was travelling to India with my husband. After going to India I faced a lot of problems with my mother-in-law and husband. Only Sai Ma came for my help in every situation.
Because of these problems I was away from my husband for one year. Almost 7 months my husband did not speak to me and didn’t even see the baby. That was the hardest phase of my life. There were days when I even thought of divorce because he did not have answers for questions. But Sai Ma always helped through dreams solving my problems.
I had to go to Chennai for my visa interview and my son was seven months. He was not feeling well and would not be without me but my husband forced me to go for the visa interview. I was really worried about my son leaving him in Bangalore and going to Chennai. Then Sai Ma took care of the situation helping me through my mom and sister without getting his condition worse. And he was ok when I came from Chennai. Om Sairam.
Many times my old phone used to have problems while switching on. I would pray to Sai Ma to switch on and it would work in minutes. Thanks Hetalji and team for creating this platform to write Sai Ma’s wonders. Om Sairam You are my everything.
