This incident happened in 2018 April. Just a brief background before we get into the story about our family before the miracle happened. We are a family of three staying in Bangalore (myself, my husband, and my son who was five years old then, both of us working, my husband was a project manager in an IT firm and I was working in a senior position with a bank). We owned an apartment however chose to stay in a rented apartment because it was near to our workplace and rented out our own house.
One day we received a call from our tenant who said that he would be moving out of our house because they were going to migrate to Canada for good. We also had a family friend who was residing in the same apartment complex where we owned our house and decided that using this as an opportunity we would meet them and our tenant and see how the house was kept and discuss their movement in detail. We visited them and I was curious to understand how this immigration process works and how he qualified.
My husband always felt that at the project manager level getting a break abroad is not easy, unlike someone who was a developer. So whenever we used to discuss moving abroad earlier he used to shrug off the topic stating that people don’t want Indians at managerial levels abroad, it’s easier for developer-level people to move. So I used to humbly accept his answer, but to my surprise, after visiting this tenant he started keenly browsing about the immigration process and stuff. This time I was not interested as both of us were pretty settled at work, my parents and in-laws were in Coimbatore which made it easy for both of us to visit when needed and I wanted to have a second kid, so I was not showing interest at all. I tried reasoning but he was clear that he wanted to move forward and stated that it was mainly for the kid because the education system was getting very stressful in India, which was not very convincing.
Reluctantly we gave the exams required for immigration during which time I was the second applicant and we did not qualify for enough points because of our age. I was somewhat happy that it did not happen. After a week he said that he would make me a primary applicant for immigration and I need to take up the exam again. I am usually a person who will not do something I don’t believe in but with regard to this I knew I did not want to move but something in me asked me to do what my husband wanted. I gave three attempts but did not qualify and was losing by 0.5 marks all the time, and in the meanwhile lot of arguments were there between us because he wanted to plan for the baby after we got to know anything on the migration front because he did not want the baby to stall the process. I told him that I was fed up with giving exams and I would give it one last time just for his sake and if it does not work out then he needs to accept that it was not destined for us to migrate.
Migrating was not my priority while the baby was because my first delivery was high risk and I did not want to delay this. This was going on and I was getting very stressed one day I got very angry and so I started crying to Baba that I have been praying for almost a year for a baby and nothing was happening. Whenever I pray for something and if it doesn’t happen then I always feel that I am not close to Baba and that’s why nothing is working out for me. So this time I said if it is Your will I should have a baby then I should get pregnant this year. I am not going to pray to You for this again and left it. My results of the exam came in the meanwhile and to my surprise, I had qualified this time.
We submitted the required documentation and were waiting for the processing to happen. It normally takes 6-9 months. We submitted in May and to my surprise, I got pregnant in Oct with Baba’s blessings. I was overjoyed and I told my husband, while he was not completely happy as he was not sure if this would impact the process. We had to inform Canadian immigration as there was a change in our family status. The moment we sent an email stating we were pregnant, the Canadian immigration office stated our PR was ready and we could deliver the baby in Canada. My husband was excited about delivering the baby there but I was not ok because I did not want to change my doctor since my first pregnancy was complicated and I had a wonderful doctor in India.
My husband understood and wrote back an email asking for options if we decided to deliver the baby in India. The Canadian Immigration office confirmed back stating that they would pause our application and reprocess once the kid was born. Normally reprocessing of PR has no timeline, it can take a month or even a year. I somehow convinced my husband that this was destined and if it meant things will fall into place. He agreed too and finally, my son was born in July 2019 we mailed them back and our PR was issued in August 2019, so quickly. We were so happy and both my husband and I started believing in destiny so much.
Baba has His plans to execute things at the right time. We need to have patience. There are so many events that happened once we decided to move to Canada which has made us believe in the supreme power very strongly. This is the first time that I am sharing my experience because this is the first time I distinctly felt that Baba is listening. I am sure He was always with us and there would have been many times in the past when things would have happened because of Him but I did not pay heed to it.
For everyone who is reading this, be assured that Baba is listening to your problems and surely will do the right things for us when the right time comes. Just trust and wait. He will never let his devotees down. I am thankful and grateful to this forum for allowing me to share my experience. Hope everyone who is reading this is reassured that Baba is real and with you always.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: Sai Sai Sai Sai Sai. This experience is about Baba coming to our rescue to take care of our daughter. Apologies, Baba for the delay in posting. This had happened around 8-10 days back. In the night, our daughter, a KG student, suddenly developed a fever, most possibly because of contracting a cold, though the temperature was less, at times it was rising in bits.
The moment I learned about the temperature from my wife, I applied Vibhuti on my daughter’s forehead and put some of it, equal to a few drops, inside her mouth, mixed with water. And then I was worrying less and prayed to Baba to be posting this experience on our blog too, which is Modern Shri Sai Satcharitra. Then after some time, the temperature again rose, and at around 2:45 am, I was about to leave for a pharmacy too, as the medicine was over and home delivery wasn’t available instantly.
But then I stopped, I was worrying less again and knew that the fever would abate by morning and it did indeed and things were normal in a day or two.
Before my daughter was born, on 14th September, daytime, in the morning of 13th September, Baba had appeared in my dream and given me and my wife a daughter, from His Almighty Hands to ours (to me actually) and had seen doctors as Zombies in our background.
Later on, I used to worry a lot about her, even if it was anything. Then one day, when I was sitting in front of a Baba’s portrait (getting this portrait was also His Leela, it was a very old portrait hung among new photos and portraits, in a shop near Dadar, Mumbai when I was working there and Baba made me bought it, just like the two goats story (cost wise) and then suddenly He told me in the form of a thought, ‘Why do you keep worrying about her, she is not yours but my daughter and I will take care of her throughout!’ Also, to add, my wife had conceived the very first Vrat of Lord Shri Sai Nav Guruvar Vrat. And since then, I worry less as He is there to take care, as is put by Shree Khalil Gibran too: “They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, and though they are with you, they do not belong to you.”

Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: Om Sairam. Please keep me anonymous. With Baba’s grace, I am going to narrate a recent experience.
One day I came to know that my mom, who lives in another state, is suffering from hyperacidity, with a lot of vomiting and head reeling. She was not able to get up from bed. I got really worried and prayed to Baba for her recovery. After two to three days she recovered slowly with Baba’s grace. We all got relaxed as she was recovering and doing well. But again after a few days one night, she suddenly got severe back pain from sweating, which got reduced by taking some painkillers. The same thing also happened the next day. Now we all got scared and insisted on visiting a doctor suspecting it to be something dangerous. But she didn’t want to see a doctor during this pandemic time and said that it was due to gas only and so not to worry.
We told her, then that if she would feel a little bit uncomfortable also then immediately she must visit a doctor. I was praying to Baba to make her fine and that it should be only due to gas, and nothing serious and it shouldn’t recur again. I also promised to share this experience here. Now, with Baba’s unconditional love and grace, she is fine, with no such pain and all. Thank You so much, Baba.
Dear devotees, a sincere prayer to Baba, works wonders. Baba also gifted me during this Ramnavami, to listen to a very beautiful Sri Ram song; “Pibare Ram Rasam’ by Rahul Vellal. This song will really take you to some other world, all your pain and tension will vanish and your heart will be filled with peace and bliss. Thank You Baba for everything. Om Sairam.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: Om Sairam everyone. Thank you Hetal Mam for maintaining this beautiful holy site for us. Previously I have shared so many experiences and those have also been published.
Baba, as You know, our whole family tested positive. By Your blessings, we are gradually recovering. But since today morning my husband has been complaining about his head roaming. He is saying that he is not feeling well. His head is roaming. He is not feeling free. Baba, as You know that time is critical, so we are getting scared to hear this. Baba, I pray to You that tomorrow morning everything should be normal.
Baba, help and bless us in this critical time. Baba, his head roaming should go away and he should feel well. Baba, if tomorrow morning everything will be normal and my husband feels well then I will submit my experience.
Baba, I hope everything will be normal from tomorrow morning. Baba, I beg You at Your lotus feet for my husband’s speedy recovery from corona. Baba You know we have a two year old son also. So to take care of him. Baba, bless my husband as well as my family. Tomorrow I will again submit my experience if my husband feels well. Baba, please save the world from this pandemic coronavirus. Om Sairam! Om Sai Aarogyakshemadaya Namah. Om Sai Rakshak Sharanam Deva.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from the USA says: Hi! I live in the USA and today I wanted to share my experience and the miracles that Baba has showered over me.
With great difficulty, I got a job with Baba’s blessings but within three months my visa got expired and it didn’t renew on time due to Covid. So I lost my current job and was waiting for my visa to get renewed at the earliest.
I prayed to Baba and was doing 9 Thursdays vrat and reading Satcharitra while waiting for the response. I called the immigration office daily for my status update and after waiting for two months they raised my case for deportation. Though I have done this previously several times I had no hope but was asking Baba to show His miracle. We were also moving out of our current residence to a new house and I told Baba that I should receive my work authorization card soon before leaving.
Just one week before leaving the house and right after I finished my 9 Thursday vrat, things started to progress. I got an email that my card has been processed. I couldn’t believe how Baba showed His miracles and always made Him believe and not lose hope. I was initially very impatient but later I calmed down and enjoyed my little break from work and left it to Baba to decide. And He knows perfectly what and when to give and I believe His plans are always the best. I joined the same job again and started working. I know that Baba always listens to our prayers and the best thing to do is to believe and have faith in Him rather than doubting Him.
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: I am a small Sai devotee staying with my mother. Thank you Hetalji for giving us the opportunity to thank Babaji and for helping others by sharing our experiences. Our experiences can help other Sai devotees to get guidance just as we get by reading their experiences.
Today my mother was not feeling well. So I prayed to Babaji to cure my mother. So I massaged her and she was feeling much better. While massaging I prayed to Babaji to cure my mother by chanting Om Sai Rakshak Sharnam. After a few minutes, my mother was feeling much better. Thank You, Babaji. Om Sai Rakshak Sharnam!
