Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from the USA says: Thank You Deva for Your loads of blessings on this small devotee of Yours.
The current place in the USA that I live in has ISKCON and Ganapati temples. A new temple was being constructed near the old Ganapati temple. The initial plan was to perform a Kumbh Abhishekam by 2020. However, due to the pandemic, construction was delayed. I worried that I may not be able to participate in this lifetime event as I was completing my fellowship program and moving to a different city by the end of June. However, Baba had His own ways. He made sure to perform Kumbh Abhishekam before I left, even though a little construction work was pending. He also made such a beautiful pooja happen despite so many problems, the current priests and the arrangement of other priests that were required for pooja.
So once the decision to perform pooja was decided, my second worry was if I could attend the pooja with my husband. I also wanted him not to miss this beautiful event. He had already joined the new place that I was to join in July. Baba removed my worries here also. He made sure that my husband was free on the weekend when the main pooja was performed. We were able to see all the wonderful pooja associated with Kumbh Abhishekam and felt very blessed.
After all the pooja was done, I was just worshiping at the altar. Suddenly, I wished to receive either a coconut or flower prasadam from the Deity. This is my old habit that even though I receive prasadam, I feel blessed if I receive it when I am praying alone. I prayed and moved forward, forgetting about it. But will Baba make His daughter go away empty-handed after such an auspicious event? A lady who was cleaning the garbha gudi, called me suddenly. I had not noticed her earlier. She gave me a very big coconut that was full of turmeric. All my satvik emotions aroused seeing Baba’s leelas in this by making sure to fulfill even the smallest desire of His devotees. I thanked Baba so many times and just stood with tears in my eyes remembering all His leelas.
Oh Deva please do bless me always like this. Oh Deva, just one request. Please bless me with children. You know my struggles for this and I know You have perfect timing for everything. You had some reason behind my recent miscarriage.
I just wanted to pray to You as I am both physically and emotionally tired of all the multiple IVF treatments that I had to undergo so many times during my residency and fellowship training. I cannot do any more IVF treatments. Please bless me to be pregnant by natural method. I know it is difficult as we have tried so many IVF due to my PCOS. But I also know that nothing is impossible for You. Oh, Deva, I will do as You say. Please forgive all our past karmas and bless us to be parents. Awaiting Your miracle for us to be parents Deva. Thank You Deva for all Your miracles that keep me astonished all the time and bring tears to my eyes. Thank You Deva for Your love for me and for always being there for me. Om Sairam.

Baba helped find me a parking spot and avoided repeat MRI or SURGERY (Sx). I was recently suffering from a perianal abscess that was not at all diagnosed for over seven weeks by many doctors that I visited. By Baba’s grace, one day my pain worsened, making me go to the ER. MRI was done and an emergency procedure was done due to sepsis. It took months to recover. I had multiple drains and during subsequent visits, drains were removed except for the big one. I continued to visit my work with that single drain. Due to physical exertion or due to healing and closure, my pain worsened requiring painkillers. It was similar to the initial days.
I panicked as I did not want to undergo an MRI and Sx again. Already, I had two MRIs, and two procedures with so many drains in that small area. I requested to see my doctor earlier than my appointment date. By Baba’s blessings he agreed. On the day of my visit, I was tense and prayed to Baba to not allow me to undergo one more MRI or Sx. I was already late for my appointment and at the parking lot, I could not find a spot. When I saw a spot, someone else came by, before me. Then I prayed to Baba and left on Him. Immediately, a parking spot opened, and I was able to park. I thanked Baba for His miracle.
Due to this parking problem, I was delayed by 20 minutes for my appointment. When I went to the front desk, they told me my doctor does not see the patients after 20 minutes. I told them about the parking problem. Here again, Baba does His miracle. They told me to wait as they would enquire about my doctor. When Baba was there, why fear? He made my doctor agree. I was seen, and my doctor removed the last drain. He told me there was no need for an MRI or surgery. I was so relieved and thought that Baba was telling me in His form.
I thanked my Deva for always being there for me. He did not leave me there. He made me drink Udi water daily. By two days, my pain was relieved, and I did not require any pain killer. I was able to walk like normal. I thanked my Deva and felt blessed for all His leelas. He keeps on surprising me every time when I least expected it. As promised to Baba, I am happy to share these beautiful leelas of my Deva with you all. Thank You Deva for always being with us. Om Sairam. Om Sai Rakshak Sharanam Deva. Om Sai.

My father eagerly bought land in India and was planning to develop a house above with a shopping complex below. However, due to his saade saath Shani problems, he faced a lot of difficulties (Will describe in detail about this in some other posts). With Baba’s grace, another contractor was found and we started that construction that was left back five years.
The plan was to complete it by April so that my parents could visit me in the USA. They were unable to visit me for the past 6 years due to this problem. While I was dreaming of them coming to visit me, the lockdown for the pandemic started and housework again stopped. I prayed to Baba to help my dad to come out of this tension so that they could come and stay with me in the USA completely relaxed. Baba listened to my prayers immediately and the housework started. I thanked Baba for making this happen. The housework is going slow due to few laborers and the lockdown. But I believe in Baba. He has made so much happen. I know He will take care of rest. I had not promised Baba to share but felt like sharing after He showed His Leela through the continuation of housework even in a pandemic. I promised Baba to share my post in the future if my parents come and stay with me soon after they complete the housework and sell it for a good amount.
Om Sai Deva, I have no words to pen down all Your leelas. I will mention them as You make me remember and as per Your wish to share them with other devotees. Thank You, Deva. Please continue to protect everyone in this world from this pandemic. Om Sai Rakshak Sharanam Deva. Om Shri Sai Samarth. Om Sai.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: Sai…Sai… to all the beautiful children of our beloved Baba. Special thanks to the entire Saiyug team for their continuous hard work to keep the blog updated.
Baba says, “As you are my devotees, it is my duty to take care of your entire family”. My wife and children were to visit her parents in the month of April 2021. The departure date was 15th April 2021, and as we all know that the second wave had already hit the country.
On top of that the designated flight got canceled and I was in no mood to send them but my wife was very much adamant to go as she had been at home for the last two years. We changed the flight and as usual, I prayed to Baba for their safe travel as her brother was coming to pick her up. My concern was that they had to travel more than six hours from the airport. By Baba’s grace, they reached their destination with ease and were continuously praying that for the next 4-5 days they should not develop any further symptoms. Everything was taken care of by Baba.
The same concern was on their return as the flight got canceled and had to shift to a different flight. As always Baba protected them and their return journey was also taken care of by Baba. I will always be indebted to You Baba for Your mercy. Sai…Sai…Samasta Lok Sukhi Bhavantu.
Shirdi Sai Devotee Moubani Chatterjee from India says: I am Moubani from India. I am working as a software professional. First of all, I would like to thank Hetalji and the team for maintaining this blog. It gives us lots of hope and makes us feel Baba’s presence all time. This is like modern Satcharitra.
Last month my mother was suffering from toothache and we went to the doctor and he advised us to do a root canal. But as we all know Covid condition is worse here, so we were not willing to do the root canal now. But the pain was more. I prayed to Baba to help to reduce her pain. Within a week, no pain was there. So, we called the doctor and he then told us that she could wait. Thanks to Baba for helping.
I would like to request Baba to please help me to get married to my desired person. I am almost 30 years old. My parents are getting older. But I am not able to find a good match. Please help me Baba. You know my wish.
