Shirdi Sai Baba’s Love Grace Miracle Stories:
Shirdi Sai Devotee Sai-Sharan India says: I am a Sai Bhakt from India. Om Sairam. First of all I would like to express my thanks and gratitude to Hetalji and her fantastic team of volunteers, who are helping her to maintain this heavenly platform which is nothing less than a modern Sri Sai Satcharitra for all the devotees of our Sai Baba.
What shall I say about our Baba? He came into my life when I was living like a beggar and didn’t even have money for one proper meal a day. Life was very hard for me as I lost my job, I got cheated in love, my health deteriorated and I was depressed.
Suddenly one day by sheer luck I visited a nearby Shirdi Sai Baba temple and from that day onwards my life started changing. Baba held my hand and showed me the right path. It took some time for me to stand back on my own feet, while Baba grinded away my Karma and I returned back to normal slowly and steadily. He cleansed me internally by removing my anger, ego, jealousy and hatred and other bad habits.
After that there has been no looking back. I feel that Baba is always with me and takes care of me and my family. I don’t have any worries in my life now as Sri Sai Baba has provided everything that I need and even more.
For Sai devotees who would like to know how to please Baba and gain his blessings and make Him stay with us permanently, below are a few points.
1) Never speak ill about anyone, however bad that person might have hurt you. Leave it to Sai, for He will decide their fate.
2) Please read at least one Chapter of Sri Sai Satcharitra every day. Even better if you can read more, but read it with proper concentration and follow the teachings of Baba as given in the book. Reading a chapter of Sri Sai Satcharitra takes just five minutes of our time in our whole day. We can do this small seva for our Baba every day.
3) Please feed poor people and animals. By doing this we can minimise our past life karmas to a great extent and Baba will be extremely happy with us as Baba loved to share His food with poor people and animals.
4) Speak less and control our anger. Don’t argue, gossip or hurt anyone with our words.
5) Please join the Mahaparayan group where every Thursday two chapters of Sai Satcharitra are read by devotees in a group. There are innumerable instances of Mahaparayan devotees who have benefited by joining this noble seva and Baba has always come to His devotees’ rescue.
6) Before we have any food or drink, always remember Sai and offer it to Him first and thank Him for providing us our meals.
7) Please do not hurt or use derogatory words against persons or Gods belonging to other religions. Please respect people of all religions and faiths. Let us try to be better human beings. In Sai Satcharitra, Baba has said “He who carps and cavils at others, pierces Me in the heart and injures Me, but he that suffers and endures, pleases Me the most.”
8) Apply Baba’s Udi on your forehead and mix a little Udi in a glass of water and place it before Sai Baba’s idol or photo overnight and pray to Him to protect everyone. In the morning, take this Udi water and share it with everyone at your home.
9) Keep chanting, Om Sairam
Om Sri Sai Rakshaka Sharanam Deva
Om Sri Sai Aarogya Kshemadaya Namaha
These are just a few ways in which we can do seva to our beloved Sai Baba and gain His Love and affection.
I read one devotee’s experience on a daily basis where they have collected and written the instructions from the holy book which we should follow in our daily life. Please read this experience daily “Baba, Let Me Follow”.
Sai Deva please bless and protect all Your devotees and their families and everyone in this world and guide us on the path of Dharma.
Om Sri Sai Rakshaka Sharanam
Samasta Loka Sukino Bhavantu!
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from US says: I am a woman in my 40’s and I am sharing this experience for the benefit of all the Sai devotees.
Last year I was introduced to this group. I continued reading for some months. Then I happened to talk to my sister in India and I casually mentioned how as kids I used to think of a big Baba’s photo next to our altar as my grandfather! Back in the days when we were kids, my grandfather used to visit us in Delhi from Chennai every year and would stay with us as my mom was a single parent and she was working. She needed help and my grandfather would visit. My two older sisters and I used to stay alone after school. The months when he would stay with us I used to feel safe. My middle sister used to bully me a lot. He loved me and would always protect me from her. Then during the time he was not in Delhi I would stand in front of this large Shirdi Sai photo in the afternoon and would weep at him and talk to him complaining about my sister’s cruelty, all the time assuming I am talking to my grandfather’s photo! This was in the early eighties.
Fast forward to last year 2020 during the pandemic I was talking to my middle sister yes the one who used to bully me and I was saying to her about how the Sai photo on our mantle piece I had mistaken for our grandfather! Then to my surprise and shock she said to me that there was no male deity photo near our prayer altar. My mother was a feminist and she prayed to devis and no male Gods, which was true, but then I was perplexed. I called my mom in India and asked her if she remembered seeing the large photo of Sai next to the altar. She said “no” and she also said the location where I said that Shirdi Sai photo was, she remembered having a large photo frame of the Saint Andal who was a South Indian Saint and another avatar of Mahalakshmi! I did remember that photo but my mother said that she never knew about Shirdi Sai back then and it was only in the year 2000 that she started following Shirdi Sai!
That brought me to tears to realize that Shirdi Sai showed Himself just to me, He truly did protect me from my sister! After realizing this big miracle and blessing in my life which has been with me in the form of continuous miracles! In my twenties I did briefly visit Baba mandir etc. But never felt that He is God. I always as a habit spoke to Him as if He was my grandfather who knows everything about me. Shirdi Sai’s form is so dear to me that I felt He is my own, not a God that I need to place in the altar.
There were many traumas in my life as a child but during all of it now when I look back Sai always presented Himself in some way to protect me and my family. Today by this realization of His continuous miracle in my life I realize the truth about my sister and everything is becoming very clear to me now that Sai is always watching! Even when I forgot about Him He has been with me, protecting me and at the same time letting me experience whatever negative karma I had to experience. But those negative experiences have made me resilient, mentally strong, and it is now helping me to create products which can help others in my situation due to trauma. My scars are my lessons and my Sai, my Thatha, is my Mother, Father and my Teacher and my Guru. I thank all of you for reading it. I hope my story brings relief to kids who are suffering due to older siblings, and who don’t know how to make parents believe their side of the story. Hopefully this will also help parents to listen to kids more and address any emotional stress early on. Maybe one day soon I will have a product developed through my software company just for staying safe from bullies!Jai Sai Samarth!
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: Dear Hetalji, thanks to you and your team for all the work you do. You are truly blessed by Baba. This is a sensitive topic. Hence I would appreciate it if you could keep my email id confidential. I had to draw a lot of courage in order to type this email. I need some help and since many people read the articles on your blog, I hope a doctor reading this will be able to help me.
Dear readers, I’m writing this post in the hope that somebody reading it will be able to help me. I’m not comfortable sharing personal stuff and had to gather a lot of courage to type this post. Men reading this may not be able to appreciate my problem. So feel free to skip this post.
I’m a Baba’s devotee who had galactorrhea about 20+ years back. I was only 24-25 years old then and didn’t know what was happening. My parents were out of the country and I was all by myself. I reached out to a doctor, but she didn’t check my hormone levels and diagnosed the issue incorrectly. I was later diagnosed with hypothyroidism and PCOD, but it was all too late. The galactorrhea completely disfigured the upper part of my body. I had loose saggy skin and a lot of pigmentation on my chest. It was very hard for me to accept it at that age. My mom consoled me.
We saw a couple of doctors, but they said nothing could be done and I have to go through cosmetic surgery. Even with that, the pigmentation issue could not be corrected. Since I’m fair skinned, the pigmentation made it look really bad, but I accepted my body and have been living like this for the last 20 years. I had been exercising regularly for the last 20 years by going to the gym in the hope that it would at least tone my pectoral muscles and keep the upper body fit. I have struggled to find an undergarment for years together and it takes a toll on me each time.
I had similar issues recently because I gained three kgs and I’m extremely low as I’m not able to find anything comfortable to wear and it’s hampering my day to day work. My skin has only gotten worse over the years and I feel that it will only get worse going forward. There is this constant fear that nags me and I’m not able to sleep at night.
I have seen many doctors and nobody is able to help (Ayurveda and homeopathy included). I sometimes feel that I should go for cosmetic surgery and get the problem fixed once and for all so that I can at least wear something comfortable. I don’t seem to have the courage due to the risks associated with the surgery. If you’re a cosmetic surgeon (in India or the US) reading this and feel that you can help me or if you know of a good cosmetic surgeon, I request you to please share the information with Hetalji so that she can pass it on to me.
I pray to Baba and Lord Hanumanji a lot. My Parents are strong believers and I came into His fold a few years back. I request all of you reading this to pray for me. Baba, please have mercy on me. Only You know how much I have suffered over the years. You know that I don’t want to go through any surgery. At the same time, I’m not able to continue like this. So please provide me some direction on how to solve this issue.
Thanks for your patience in reading this long post.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from UK says: I have been a humble devotee of Baba since 2013. Ever since Baba took me on His feet there has been no looking back.
Sairam to all the Baba’s devotees. Three of my experiences have already been published on the site and I am going to narrate the most recent experiences of Baba.
My Brother Got a Job Due To Baba’s Blessings: My brother is working in the IT field and lately he was under immense pressure because of work. He was so stressed because of work and I was helpless looking at his situation. I had no other option rather than surrendering at Deva’s feet. I asked my brother to stay strong and update his profile at job seeking sites. He was procrastinating it but with Baba’s grace, he updated his profile. The very next day, he got a call from a HR firm for a very reputed firm. My brother was shortlisted for an interview and within a week he was selected and offered a great package as well. This might look like an ordinary experience but isn’t our Baba King of Miracles? A week before all this happened I prayed Baba to help my brother and prayed that if He would bless him with a good job then I asked Baba to come in Yellow dress the next day. Lo, Deva did dress up in Yellow. Thank You Baba for blessing my brother with a job during this pandemic time. Baba, You know what’s my brother’s wish, please bless him immensely and fulfil his heart’s desires. He should marry soon and settle abroad.
Our Residency Cards Approved: Since we live abroad, we need to apply for residency cards. We applied for the cards but due to the global pandemic situation it kept on delaying. I was having nightmares because of the delay because it’s human tendency to overthink and stress ourselves with all the negative thoughts. Every day I prayed to Baba for the speedy processing of cards. I started Saptah Parayan last month and also wrote “Om Sairam” 108 times in 48 days. By the heavenly blessings of Baba our cards were approved today.
Baba, thank You so much for all Your blessings on me and my family throughout the years. If not You Baba, my life could have been a mess. You’re my guiding star and pray to You to guide me in every bit of my life. Deva, please bless my husband with a good job and a kid very soon. Sainatha, help us settle in the UK.
Om Sai Shri Sai Jai Jai Sai
Om Sri Sai Arogya Kshemadaya Namah
Om Sai Rakshak Sharanam Deva
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: I am a 35 year old lady who believes in Baba for what He has given me.
Last year in the month of March, 2020 when the pandemic was in a rise suddenly my father got very ill not because of Covid but as he is a heart patient and had already done an angioplasty in the month of October, 2019. After the operation he was fine but again in the month of February, 2020 he started feeling very sick. Hence he visited the doctor in the month of April, 2020 as he was not able to walk or do anything alone as his full body used to shake.
Seeing the condition of my father I was totally depressed and did not know what to do. Doctors said that he is suffering from some nerve issues and hence asked us to consult a neurologist. But as the pandemic was on the rise, getting an appointment with the doctor was very difficult. I had no idea what to do. I had heard the name of Sai from a few of my colleagues in the office but did not get an opportunity to take His name till then.
In the month of July, 2020 one of my colleagues who used to be a part of the Mahaparayan introduced me to one of the members of the Mahaparayan and asked me to read the book every Thursday and had introduced me to one of the group. Ever since then to my surprise I have seen my father recovering slowly and slowly. We visited a local ENT at our place and he mentioned that the shakiness was due to his ear problem and there was nothing to worry about. Since then his medication started and within a few months he was able to walk and do things on his own. I never thought in the month of March, 2020 that my father would get better again. But when Baba is there with me, I have nothing to fear about.
I am blessed to have a friend who introduced me to the Mahaparayan group and since then the wonders started happening. I cannot thank Baba for His blessing on me and my family. Since then, no matter wherever I am on Thursday, I will read the book and will never miss reading the book ever in future.
I am thankful to Baba for His blessings in my life and He will always be there in me forever.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from US says: Sairam Baba. Hetalji and team koti pranams for this wonderful service.
I live in the US with my two daughters. Recently the elder one wasn’t well but Baba helped. She is fine now. Thank You Baba.
The elder daughter is in high school. You know how much she is stressing about her grades. The situation at home is not good either. It’s adding a lot of pressure on her. Please help her Baba. Baba, please help me buy a home and walk me through the procedure.
Baba, me and my sister, both of us live in the US and our parents are alone in India. We are constantly worried about them. Please take care of them during this difficult situation. We trust in You.
