Shirdi Sai Baba’s Love Grace Miracle Stories:
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from US says: I am an IT Project Manager working for a reputed Indian software services company.
This incident happened back in 2017. Myself, my wife and daughter (1.3 Years old) lived in California. Our L1 Visa was getting completed (Max-out) in Oct-1-2017. Irrespective of our Green Card processing, we couldn’t stay beyond our 7 years timeline in L1A Visa. So we had to go back to India.
Coming back to US would be difficult since there were a lot of L1 Visa rejections in India. Also the department I worked for terminates/releases people from the account if they do not have the visa for a longer period. It would be difficult to find a project as well. I was not promoted to Manager and awaiting my promotion and wouldn’t want to go back to India before promotion. Otherwise, things would again be delayed. Too many things were at stake.
One of our friends casually referred to Canada PR. So we casually started Canada PR as Backup plan in May month. In general Canada PR processing takes one year starting from IELTS exam. Me and my wife had to score higher in IELTS to qualify. My wife was made primary applicant due to the age factor. She had to score 8(Listening), 7(Reading), 7(Writing), 7 (Speaking) out of 9. Even 25 lesser, we won’t be qualifying for the cut-off score. Luckily my wife scored 8, 7.25, 7, 7 and myself as dependent also scored similar to add extra points. We were happy that we had a score little higher than cut-off. We submitted our application on Jul-9. All we had were 2.5 months that were left.
But the next set of steps consumes at least 9 months. 1. Prepare a lot of documentation including Medical check-up, Police Clearance Certificate, etc., for which Canada consulate gives 90 days. After which it takes 6 months. But we had a total of 80 days. We did the medical check-up, PCC, etc., in 10-15 days and submitted it to an online website. We had been checking with some of our friends who had submitted before us and awaiting approval. All we had was two months’ time and less hope. Also, I did not inform the office, as they might use the scenario to delay my promotion or give someone who is holding a visa. (Too much politics).
At one end, August was nearing completion. The promotion cycle which normally happens in July was postponed by 2 months. The only thing that kept us going was Sai Satcharitra. By God’s grace, we heard about one of our friends, whose visa was expiring was traveling to Canada through a company-sponsored work permit. I was also eager to ask but afraid of my promotion chances. The same week, my manager confirmed that my promotion got through fine and would be officially out in 3 weeks. Then I opened my case of Visa expiry and Canada Work Permit citing an example. Then through that friend, I pushed my case for work permit also. After a lot of struggle, the immigration person accepted to process my case, as these kinds of cases need to be submitted before 3 months of Visa expiry date. In my case, it was just 1 month. But Visa processing would take 3 months. So my management was pushing me to travel to India, as days were nearing. There was no response to the Canada PR aspect too.
It was on September 21/22. My team director informed me to book tickets for India as a work permit might take easily 30-45 days and he cannot risk me staying beyond my allowed days in the US. My visa end date was Oct-1-2017. It was Thursday. I went to the Sai temple and prayed. On Friday, till evening there was no update on Canada PR. I lost all hope, read one chapter of Satcharitra, and went to sleep in the late evening. I woke up around 10 PM and checked for the status. Miracle! Miracle! – Canada government approved my PR case and requested for a passport. My joy knew no bounds. Immediately I sent my passport to Canada for stamping. But all I was left was 5 working days and should receive the passport by then. Luckily, the stamped passport arrived on Wednesday. I informed the office leadership team on Canada PR and I would be traveling with the same to Canada and need not wait for the work permit. Had packers/movers come home on Friday to move stuff to Canada. We boarded the flight on Saturday and reached Toronto! The whole process happened in 2 months, while some of my friends have been waiting for 6 months (Average time).
I should have written this long back. Please forgive my laziness, Sai Baba. Now when I write this on 06/17, I am in deep, deep trouble in my career. Its almost 99.999% hope lost and I might be terminated but I am still hoping for Baba to shower mercy. If mercy happens, I will definitely share it in my next experience. I need all your prayers!
Shirdi Sai Devotee Gopinath Arunachalam from India says: Pranams to all Sai devotees in this world. Om Sri Sairam! This is my second posting here. My first experience was published with the same heading last month and would like to thank Hetalji and the administers for considering sharing my experience in this modern Sai Satcharitra.
I would like to share two, though many, Sai leelas happened recently in my life. A couple of weeks before my wife was experiencing bloating and was feeling difficult to breathe. Though she was advised by our family doctor over the phone that it was due to gastric she didn’t settle. As always, Sai the doctor of doctors cured it through Udi, His matchless divine medicine. She took Udi after praying sincerely to Baba and it worked miraculously. The bloating subsided and cleared in the next two days. Bow to You Sai.
The second one, My daughter got a bad dream during her night sleep and woke up screaming. She was unable to sleep again and was quite petrified. I prayed to Sai Deva and applied Udi on her forehead and gave it to her to drink mixing it in water. Within no minutes she got relaxed and got into a dreamless sound sleep.
Sai Deva, why should we ever fear when You are there forever to guide us and look after us. Thanking You is a very small Deva, we surrender ourselves to Your lotus feet. Protect us and lead us on the right path. Om Sri Sairam. Om Sri Sai Rakshak Saranam.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: Om Sairam. I am the daughter of Shri Sai Baba. Om Sairam to all devotees of Sri Sai Baba. Thank you Hetalji and team for maintaining this blog where we can share our experiences. Now I am going to share two experiences.
Experience 1- Two days ago I was facing a sleeping issue and was unable to sleep properly. I was trying continuously to sleep but was not able to sleep. Then the next day I had to go office which was also the first day of my training. So I prayed to Sai Baba for giving me nice sleep. Then after that by Sai’s grace, I could sleep properly and I went to the office also. Please Sai be with me always I need You.
Experience 2- Before some days I was not able to breathe properly and my mind was completely worried that why I was suffering for breathing and scared for this also. So I prayed to Sai Baba and drank Udi of Baba and applied on my nose for 2-3 days. I continuously prayed to Sai Baba to please cure me. I was giving so much attention to breath due to this. After 5-6 days I became normal and could breathe but still, some time I give attention to breathe because I am facing to breathe but not like before days. I know with the grace of Sai Baba it will cure completely. Thank You so much Sai Baba for everything. Without You, Baba I am nothing, please be with me always. Please bless Your all devotees and Sai Baba please save this planet from this pandemic.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: My parents were going on a holiday to Dubai. So we got a new suitcase. When we removed it for packing I was not able to recall the numerical lock number which was a 3 digit number. As I am a last-minute performer there was hardly any time left for moving to the airport. So mom said they would need to take the old kind of suitcase as the last option if it did not unlock. I started all permutations and combinations for form 3 digit numbers. But it was not helping as so many possibilities. Then I decided to go one by one for all numbers from 000 till 999. I also called asked in the mall regarding it. They said they could unlock it and we needed to take it there. As time was less that was not feasible. I must have tried around 50 possibilities. Then as tired, I prayed Baba for help. A miracle of miracles I tried some random number irrespective of the sequence I was following and it opened! Such is the mercy of our Baba, just a call away! My parents were also surprised. The number was way far and maybe in series of 700 (I don’t remember exactly as it dates back to Jan 2016). Hours’ work was done in minutes with Baba’s Grace! Thank You so much, Baba. Jai Sairam!
