Shirdi Sai Baba’s Love Grace Miracle Stories:
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from USA says: I am a Sai Baba devotee and am submitting my dad’s experience of Baba’s Grace just as he had written it. My wife and myself were staying with our daughter and granddaughter in Secunderabad to give her company and courage since her husband was working in another state.
On one day 23.12.2004 Thursday, while I was taking my noon nap around 3:00pm I felt a peculiar feeling which I never felt throughout my life. I was sleeping on the cot next to my wife. Slowly but surely my whole body which was perpendicular to the cot started to move in an oblong position continuously without my knowledge. My wife asked me, “Why are you sleeping like this? Can you not straighten your body and sleep correctly?” Suddenly she found that I was not having any awareness and even a sense of perception. All the while I was repeatedly muttering “Do not be afraid. For me dear Sai Baba is there always.”
My wife immediately called my granddaughter who was studying in the adjacent room and she in turn called her mother at work. My daughter was in a dazed mood not knowing what to do. She could not recollect any doctor to contact at that time of day nor could she know of any good hospital nearby. To our good luck, one of her neighbours, who herself was a doctor, suggested that she take me to KIMS hospital. All the time I was muttering Sree Sainath will protect me. They got two auto-rickshaws. I was bodily lifted by the security guard and a carpenter who was doing some woodwork nearby.
We reached KIMS hospital compound and autos stopped in the parking lots which were a bit distant from the main building. All of a sudden as if from nowhere, four people from the hospital side came with a stretcher and took me directly to the ICU ward. Meanwhile my wife and granddaughter were searching for me including my daughter who was busy settling auto fares. Ultimately they came to know that I was taken to ICU. This was at about 4:30pm on that day. How Shree Sainath worked this miracle in my life cannot be fathomed easily. The attending doctor told my wife that they had brought me at the right time otherwise any delay would have made me go into a coma!
Dear Sai bandhus, I would like to state a few pertinent points:
1. How the miraculous and unforeseen/unknown hands of Sri Baba worked?
2. My daughter never heard about the existence of KIMS Hospital earlier, which is just less than a kilometre away from her house. Who guided her to take me to the particular hospital in the nick of time apart from her friend?
3. How come the hospital staff came to know about my arrival since no one phoned to tell them. As you are all aware, invariably every patient has to report to the reception counter and then will be referred to a doctor. Of course they have to take an advance for the admission. Without observing all these formalities, how did the hospital staff take me directly to ICU?
When my wife and daughter came to see me in the ICU I had regained consciousness. The concerned doctor told my wife that they immediately took me to ICU since any delay would have made me go into a coma. They started giving me drips and I spent the night in the ICU ward. Next morning I was shifted to a special ward.
I was admitted in the hospital on 23.12.2004 and discharged on 25.12.2004 at 11:42 am when I came home and saw on TV the havoc caused by Tsunami waves etc.
Dear Sai bandhus, I would like to ask you that if this is not due to Sree Sai’s grace to what else can we attribute all these unexpected developments? At this juncture I am reminded of an ardent prayer by a great Sai devotee in his book which I reproduce below:
“Lord Sainath: I do not have anything valuable to offer You except myself and my love. I accept Your control of my life and intend to serve You and follow You. You have my past, my future and my family, my money and my time. Nothing will I withhold. Thank You for loving me and forgiving and making me Your own”
Why I have said this as a mini Tsunami in my life is like this. All these years I did not have any strange disorder or vicissitudes of any kind in my life and everything was going on smoothly. Just to sow the seeds of Sree Sai Bhakti in me He put a small pebble in the placid still and serene waters of my life to be dropped so as to create sympathetic vibrations so as to create ripples, which will reach the boundaries. Experience does not beat excitement.
Sree Sai overpowered my sentiments. These are the electrifying effects throwing the repercussions in the realm of the impossible. There are times in a devotee’s life when God answers before one calls. God has no favourites. Yet His laws seem to favour those who seek Him earnestly. God is impersonal. Yet He dwells in every one of us.
We have to count His blessings and not troubles. Our goals should be to achieve glory of God. The works of Sree Sai Baba for forming this unique relationship and bondage with Him are utter childlike trust and absence of selfish desire.
There are no tests in the spiritual realm. Where is the time for the Guru to put a disciple to test? He is desperately and eagerly waiting for at least one disciple who will create the necessary opening and opportunity for the Guru to do something truly significant with Him. When you are desperately waiting like a Chatak (Rain bird), where is the time to put you through a test? Dear Sri Sai Bhaktas, I know that there are even more blood curdling instances of devotees experiencing Sree Sai Baba’s grace and I do not claim this to be unique in nature and I only supplement this humble contribution of mine without supplanting earlier experiences of the devotees.
I only reiterate that this is nothing but His immense and abundant grace and timely help that saved me through this Tsunamic catastrophe. Bow To Sree Sai And Peace Be To All.

Shirdi Sai Devotee Priyanka Wagh says:: As the annual examination finished for my 12 year old son, he was in a jubilant mood for summer vacation fun. The equinox effect was showing much early in Bangalore in March only. April 4th, as I write this live, was a slightly better day than past few hot days. I was driving back home with my son in the front seat of the car, after a pleasant lunch at a reasonably nearby joint. What I found mesmerizing in that 3 kms drive was wherever my eyes rolled; I saw an image of Baba and each one I noticed. By Baba’s grace only, I felt that Baba was trying to convey something. And at that moment my thoughts were fed more when I saw an incredibly beautiful image of Baba’s face spread over the rear glass of a car that was ahead of me. I could not take my eyes off the picture.
It was a picture saying a thousand things, “I am with you, I love you so much, if I am your loving Mother, nobody can ever harm you. A picture full of vatsalya and karuna. Unforgettable picture of my loving Baba saying much more to me. My mind got tuned with the picture instantly and I thought that maybe I am in trouble somewhere and Baba is saving me and He’s informing me the same. Incredibly true, as I reached home, I was informed on the phone that someone had talked ill of me to our superiors through a pre planned motive. The importance of that image on the rear glass of the car now became crystal clear to me. If my loving Baba had not communicated His assurance to me in advance, I am not sure how I would have pulled through the complaint as only my heart knew that I did no wrong.
The superiors not only took the matter very lightly but also took stricter decisions against those who complained. I was overflowing with Baba’s grace. And it showed to my fellow human beings too. We are all human. Error is human. I had no malice by Baba’s grace. Sainath the loving mother…. So much loving and caring He is.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from Japan says: I have been a devotee of Baba for the past 3 years, thank you for this blog. I want to share two recent experiences. About 2-3 weeks back I suddenly got chills and a slight sore throat. Also I had a weird funny feeling in my chest. I was so scared, I went to the local clinic and they took x-ray and they said that it looked like a normal cold only and gave me medicine for 3 days. I begged and prayed to Baba that I should get better in 3 days and I did gargling and steaming and promised Baba that I will submit my experience.
About last week suddenly my husband said that he was not feeling well and he was a little warm. I really got very tense and prayed to Baba that it should not be anything. He had some medicine and it was not working. Last week on Tuesday in the afternoon he said that he was feeling dizzy and tired and had little body pain. I got really upset and I prayed to Baba and Lord Hanuman and prayed that I will write Om Sairam 1008 times in red ink and also will definitely post the experiences.
Slowly he started getting better and surely it was only Baba Who helped and protected us. Thank You so much Baba and Lord Hanuman. Please protect everyone Sai. Om Sairam.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: My post is about Sai Papa’s grace. Om Sairam to all devotees, Hetalji and Team and thank you for this wonderful platform.
One day I had a very bad fight with the person whom I love the most on this planet. Last time when we fought he didn’t speak with me for 15 days properly. So I prayed to my Sai Papa and told Him to please solve the problem today only then I will post my experience. Baba listened to me and by Baba’s grace problem was solved the next day evening and so posting the same. Seriously this is unbelievable after that big fight we had to get that solved on the next day only. My English is not good but hopefully it doesn’t matter. Baba please I am in a lot of pain and did 9 Guruvar vrat also but still can’t improve. You know it. Please fulfil my wish of 9 Guruvar Vrat. I am waiting please. Om Sairam.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from US says: Om Sairam, I am one of the sparrows that Baba was kind to pull under His never ending warmth and love. My whole family is devoted to our beloved Baba. He is the saviour, guardian and protector of our family. My day starts and ends with Baba. Kudos to this team for maintaining such a wonderful site. This platform provides people the ability to pour out their heart about our beloved Baba.
Coming to my experience, for the past month I was experiencing one or the other health issues which was bothering me a lot. I was petrified by it. I daily drank Udi mixed with water and applied Udi on the place. The wound started healing slowly and it didn’t bother me. My kind Baba saved me. Thank You Baba. Om Sai Namo Namah, Shri Sai Namo Namah, Jai Jai Sai Namo Namah, Sadhguru Sai Namo Namah!
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: Thanks to Hetalji for running this wonderful site, may Baba bless her. What can I say about Baba; how He my Dad helps me every time. I was having problems with periods. I was getting delayed by periods. It had been 16 days and yet no periods. I used to be worried everyday. Every time it was a hell feeling. I didn’t want to become pregnant. I prayed to Baba, asked His mercy, started drinking Udi water and even eating papaya but there was no result. I couldn’t even share it with mom. I just prayed to Baba to please save me. I just recalled everything how bad it would be. It was hell. I promised to share here. I came across similar posts. How can Baba ignore His child? Yes, I got my periods finally. Thanks a ton to my dad for saving me. I am sorry Nana. I love You. Om Sairam.
