Title: DWARKAMAI's LEELAS(She is our Mother)

Dear Brothers and sisters,

I am just wondering which miracle I should write, because I new when there was a day when I was not having money to do my 10+2. Also I didn't know what is going to happen the next day. Now I have completed my engineering and I am in USA as a software engineer. Every day of my life and every phase of my life are being taken care by Sai Baba. In fact for me Sai Baba is my father and Dwarkamai is my mother that’s how I feel and that’s how I address Baba and Dwarkamai. I have seen every statement of Baba true in my life in fact some times when I slide out of the spiritual path may be due to my weaknesses or may be due to the situations. When again I come back to the path shown by Baba for His children and then I feel I have done something against what Baba said and I think Baba might be angry with me. Then I look into Him and I get the statement in my mind can a mother get angry with her kiddies will the ocean send back the rivers. I see the photograph of Sai Baba and I feel that he saying me these lines I feel like watching him endlessly in fact He is the Master of the world. I feel like writing every experience of mine, but I feel its going to become lengthy may be I will get a chance to write and tell the world all my experiences.

WISH THE WORLD UNENDING BLISS AND MAY EVERY ONE IN THE WORLD REALIZE THE LORD SAI BABA, I WISH EVERY ONE A HAPPY AND PEACEFUL LIFE. THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME AN OPPORTUNITY TO EXPRESS MY SELF.

Om Sairam,

I really do not have any words to praise the Lord Shirdi Sairam.  

Today I am working in a Good company and in the abroad means it is all the blessings of Sai Baba.

So every day I start work by chanting OM SAI SRI SAI JAYA JAYA SHIRDI SAI. Believe it or not all the ups and downs during the day while executing the work are beared by God. I am simply executing what Baba says to me. In the end the result was simply great. I felt that this way doing the work gives a great relief from the work load.

JAI SRI SHRDI SAIRAM

 I used to visit Sai Baba’s temple occasionally during 1993-95. Later I did my B.Tech during 95-99 and then to do pursue higher education. I appeared for the entrance examination and though I fared well I was unable to get a seat in the colleges I wanted. Till 1999 July I didn’t know much about Baba, I was very much distressed at that time, then in the month of august somehow two books written on Baba came to me.

I started reading the books (one of them is Satcharitra) and then the magic of Baba started to work on me, whereever I go he used to follow me. Whether I am in a bus or an auto, where ever I concentrate he is present there as if he is calling me, he never left me alone. So my attachment with him grew bigger and bigger, then in year 2000 I got admission in M.Tech in IIT Bombay with His blessings, and I visited Shirdi thrice during my stay in Bombay. And even today He follows me and takes care of me , I daily read Sai Satcharitra and every time I read it I find something new to follow, every where I find his presence, when ever i am in need of help he provides me the same. There are a lot of miracles he had done for me but it will take a lot of space and time to describe them, only thing I can say is that he will never forget us even if we forget him.

At present I am in final semester and wish to settle at his lotus feet with his kind blessings

Jai Sai Ram

an oath to visit Baba on the birth of a son. Its a coincidence that we

Anu
Baba thank you very much for giving me a job. In fact, you have given me several job opportunities from which you have chosen one for me. Thanks for fulfilling my wish. You asked me to wait with 2 paise dakshina (shradha, saburi) and there you go, I got the result. I sincerely ask all devotees to have shradha, saburi and wait for his blessings even if it takes years. May Baba bless all of us.

Dipika ji ...

i was very much moved on seeing ur posts....i have been reading the Sai Satcharitra .....yesterday i was reading that part , where emphasis was laid on the importance of hearing our Baba's Leelas and how it is benneficial to one , when a thought crossed my mind.... i was thinking that Hemadpant had written the Leelas of those times.... then definitely in today's times also...somebody must be there for organizing experiences of the devotees in a proper manner (i.e. accumulated together), even though the forum was there ....as various other devotees are also there who do not about this site.... after sometime i continued my reading and forgot about it....
today morning when i saw this i was amazed and definitely Baba cleared my doubts..... Thank you Baba for making me believe u more and Dipika ji thank you for spreading the Leelas of our dear Baba.....

He passed away without seeing his name in the Guinness Book of Records. Pt Razdan holds the credit for having written and composed the greatest number of bhajans on one subject - Sai Baba. He has 13 cassettes with various music companies who have released his work. So popular are they that different religious organizations have pinched his work and it has been passed off as theirs.

Pt Razdan, who passed away recently on the 1st of November, was a Sai bhakt and he had an interesting story to his faith in the Saint of Shirdi. For him writing bhajans was almost a calling. He started life 50 years ago as a fledgling journalist writing about films.

Somewhere in the middle of a lucrative career he decided to make a film. He signed Rajkumar - always a difficult star. After recording eight songs and completing a few shooting schedules, he ran into trouble causing him huge losses in money and more importantly in spirits. This was when he began realizing the futility of life and the temporariness of relationships.

He said in a nostalgic moment, "My wife was an avid Sai Bhakt but I had never thought of these things. I came from a family of doctors and had never even visited Shirdi. One day though as I was driving in my car I suddenly started humming quite naturally - the words 'jis haal main rakhe Sai us haal main rehte jao…' these words and the tune came to me quite spontaneously. I reached home and put down the words and as I knew nothing about music composition, I recorded the bhajan to remember it. This was in 1977.

There used to be a satsang in my mother-in-law's house on Mondays and Thursdays and I used to often sing there. People started enjoying my compositions and requesting me to sing my own bhajans like 'dheeraj rakh, who rehmat ki barkha barsa hi dega..jis Sai ne dard diya hai who dava bhi dega."

Razdan started writing in great earnest and all his bhajans were based on Sai Baba's teachings but he had never visited Shirdi. "I realized I should do so. So, along with two friends we went to Shirdi. Here we had a bath and went to the temple. During the aarti, a man came and told me 'Visit room no. 2 and meet Rambaba.'

Then we went to this room we saw a man who was seven feet tall and 127 years old. He asked me about myself and I told him. He asked to hear my bhajans and then asked what I wanted to do. I said that I'd like these bhajans recorded. He gave me five things - an apple, a bottle of perfume a towel, a banana and an orange. He blessed us and we left. Outside a man told us that this Rambaba had met Sai Baba in 1910, 1914 and 1915 and was a great devotee. He was surprised that Rambaba had given us so much importance. This was in February 1984.

This is when my career in music started off. In 1984 I recorded by first album Sai Yatra. I spent my own money but got great pleasure in doing so. In 1986, I recorded Sai Arpan in the voice of Manhar Udhas…" this kicked off an association which lasted till his death.

Razdan's intention was to record 18 albums like the 18 chapters of the Bhagvad Gita. He said that his albums fared so well because he talked about the teachings of Baba and not just repeating the name of the Saint as others do. Listeners have often claimed that they find solutions to their problems merely by listening to his bhajans. Companies like CBS, Times, Music Polygram and T series have recorded his albums. Maestros like Naushad Ali have appreciated his work. He had 11 bhajans in blank verse ready to record his next album. It remains to be seen how this will be done.

So great was his faith that after the debacle of the film, money started pouring in again and his faith in Sai made him say 'andheron se ab dar nahin lagta, ik Deepak jala diya maine'.

Harishchandra Pitale

There was a gentleman by name Harishchandra Pital in Bombay. He had a son, who suffered from epilepsy. He tried many allopathic and ayurvedic doctors, but there was no cure. There remained only one way of remedy, viz. resorting to the saints. It has been stated in Chapter XV that Das Ganu by his inimitable and splendid kirtans spread the fame of Sai Baba in the Bombay Presidency. Mr. Pitale heard some of these kirtans in 1910 and learnt therefrom and from others that Baba, by His touch and mere glance, cured many incurable diseases. Then a desire arose in his mind to see Sai Baba. Making all preparations and taking presents and fruit-baskets, Mr. Pitale came to Shirdi with family, wife and children. He then went to the Masjid with them, prostrated before Baba and placed his sick son on Baba's Feet. No sooner Baba saw the child than an untoward thing happened. The son immediately revolved his eyes and fell down senseless. His mouth began to foam and his whole body began to perspire profusely and it seemed as if he breathed himself out. Seeing this, the parents became very nervous and excited. The boy used to get such fits very often, but this fit seemed to persist long. Tears began to flow ceaselessly from the mother's eyes and she began to wail, crying that her condition was like that of a person, who being afraid of the robbers ran into a house which collapsed on him,or like a cow fearing a tiger, ran into the hands of a butcher, or like a traveller, who being tormented by the heat of the sun went to take refuge under a tree, which fell upon him, or like a devout person going for worship into a temple which collapsed upon him. Then Baba comforted her saying - "Do not wail like this, wait a bit, have patience, take the boy to your lodging, he will come to his senses within half an hour." They did as directed by Baba and found that His words came true. As soon as he was taken into the Wada, the boy recovered and all the Pitale family, husband, wife and others were very delighted and all their doubts disappeared. Then Mr. Pitale came with his wife to see Baba and prostrated himself before Him very humbly and respectfully and sat shampooing His legs and mentally thanking Baba for His help. Baba then smilingly said - "Are not all your thoughts, doubts and apprehensions calmed down now? Hari (Lord) will protect him, who has got faith and patience". Mr. Pitale was a rich and well-to-do gentleman. He distributed sweet-meat on a large scale and gave Baba excellent fruits and pan (betel-leaves). Mrs. Pitale was a very Sattwik lady, simple, loving and faithful. She used to sit near the post staring at Baba with tears of joy flowing down from her eyes. Seeing her of an amicable and loving nature, Baba was much pleased with her. Like Gods, Saints are always dependent on their devotees who surrender and worship them with their heart and soul. After passing some happy days in Baba's company, the Pitale family came to the Masjid to take Baba's leave to depart. Baba gave them Udi and blessings and called Mr. Pitale close by and said to him - "Bapu, I had given you before, Rs. two, now I give you Rs. three; keep these in your shrine for worship and you will be benefited." Mr. Pitale accepted these as Prasad, prostrated himself again before Baba and prayed for His blessings. A thought arose in his mind, that as that was his first trip to Shirdi, he could not understand what Baba meant, when He said that He had given Rs. two previously. He was curious to have this mystery solves, but Baba kept silent. When Mr. Pitale returned to Bombay, he narrated to his old mother all that had happened at Shirdi and the mystery about Baba's giving him Rs. two formerly. The mother also did not understand the mystery, but, thinking seriously about that, she was reminded of an old incident, which solved the mystery. She said to her son - "As you now went to Sai Baba with your son, so had your father done when he took you to Akkalkot, for the darshana of the Maharaj there many years ago. That Maharaj was also a Siddha, Perfect Yogi, omniscient and liberal. Your father was pure, devout and his worship was accepted. He then gave your father Rs. two for being kept in the shrine and worshipped. Your father worshipped them accordingly till his death, but thereafter the worship was neglected and the rupees were lost. After some years the memory of these two rupees also disappeared and now, as you are very fortunate, the Akkalkotkar Maharaj has appeared to you in the form of Sai Baba just to remind you to your duties and worship, and to ward off all dangers. Now beware henceforth, leave off all doubts and bad thoughts, follow your ancestors and behave well; go on worshipping the family gods and the rupees, appraise properly and take pride in the blessing of the Saints. Sai Samartha has kindly revived the spirit of Bhakti in you, cultivate it it your benefit." Hearing the remarks of the mother, Mr. Pitale was very much delighted. He came to know, and was convinced about the all-prevasiveness of Baba and the significance of His darshan. From that time he became very careful about his behaviour.

Mr.Shevade

Mr. Sapatneker of Akkalkot (Sholapur District) was studying for law. A co-student Mr.Shevade met him. Other fellow students also gathered together and compared notes of their study. It was found by the questions and answers amongst themselves, that Mr.Shevade was the least prepared of all for the examination, and therefore all the students derided him. But he said that though he was not prepared, he was sure to pass the examination, as his Sai Baba was there to get him through it successfully. Mr.Sapatnekar was surprised at this remark. He took Mr.Shevade aside and asked him who this Sai Baba was whom he extolled so high. He replied - "There lives in a Masjid in Shirdi (Ahmednagar District) a fakir. He is a great Sat-purusha. There may be other saints, but this is unique. Unless there is a great store of merits on one's account, one can't see Him. I fully believe in Him, and what He says will be never untrue. He has assured me that I will pass definitely next year and I am confident that I will get through the final examination also with His grace." Mr.Sapatneker laughed at his friend's confidence and jeered at him and Baba.

DWARKAMAI's MIRACLES(She is our Mother)

Sapatnekars

Mr.Sapatnekar passed his examination, settled at Akkalkot and practised as a pleader there. Ten years after this, i.e., in 1913 he lost his only son on account of a throat disease. This broke his heart. He sought relief by making a pilgrimage to Pandharpur, Ganagapur and other holy places. He got no peace of mind. Then he read Vedanta, which also did not help him. In the meanwhile he remembered Mr.Shevade's remarks and his faith in Baba, and he thought that he too should go to Shirdi and see Baba. He went to Shirdi with his younger brother Panditrao and was much pleased to see Baba from a distance. When he went near and prostrated himself and placed a coconut before Baba with pure feeling (devotion), the latter at once cried out "Get away." Saptnekar hung down his head, moved back and sat aside. He wanted to consult somebody who would advise him how to proceed. Somebody mentioned Bala Shimpi's name. Sapatnekar saw him and sought his help. They bought Baba's photos and came with them to the Masjid. Baba Shimpi took a photo in his hand, gave it to Baba and asked him whose photo it was. Baba said that this photo was the 'Yara' (Lover) of him, pointing to Sapatnekar. Saying this Baba laughed and all others joined. Bala asked Baba the significance of the laugh and beckoned Sapatnekar to come forward and take darshan. When Saptnakar began to prostrate himself, Baba again cried "Get out." Sapatnekar did not know what to do. Then they both joined their hands and sat before Baba, praying. Baba finally ordered sapatnekar to clear out immediately. Both were sad and dejected. As Baba's order had to be obeyed, Sapatnekar left Shirdi with a heavy heart praying that he should be allowed to take darshan next time.

Mrs.Saptnekar

One year elapsed. Still his mind was not at peace. He went to Gangapur, where he felt more restless. Then he went to Madhegaon for rest and finally decided to go to Kashi. Two days before starting, his wife got a vision. In her dream she was going with a pitcher to Lakadsha's well. There a fakir with a piece of cloth round his head, who was sitting at the foot of the Neem tree, came close to her and said - "My dear lassie, why get exhausted for nothing? I get your pitcher filled with pure water." She was afraid of the fakir and hastened back with the empty pitcher. The fakir followed her. At this she was awakened and opened her eyes. She told this vision to her husband. They thought that this was an auspicious sign and they both left for Shirdi. When they reached the Masjid, Baba was absent. He had gone to Lendi. They waited till His return. When He returned, she was surprised to see that the fakir she saw in her vision, resembled exactly Baba. She reverentially prostrated herself before Baba and sat looking at him. Seeing her humility Baba was much pleased and began to tell a story in his peculiar characteristic fashion to a third party. He said - "My arms, abdomen and waist are paining for a long time. I took many medicines, the pains did not abate. I got sick of the medicines as they gave me no relief, but I am surprised to see now that all the pains have disappeared at once." Though no name was mentioned it was the story of Mrs.Sapatnekar herself. Her pains, as described by Baba, left her soon and she was happy.

Then Mr.Sapatnekar went ahead to take darshan. He was again welcomed with the former "Get out." This time he was more penitent and persevering. He said that Baba's displeasure was due to his past deeds and resolved to make amends for the same. He determined to see Baba alone and ask his pardon for his past actions. This he did. He placed his head on Baba's feet and Baba placed His hand on it and Sapatnekar sat stroking Baba's leg. Then a shepherdess came and sat massaging Baba's waist. Baba in his characteristic way began to tell the story of a bania. He related the various vicissitudes of all his life, including the death of his only son. Sapatnekar was surprised to see that the story which Baba related was his own, and he wondered how Baba knew every detail of it. He came to know that He was omniscient and knew the hearts of all. When this thought crossed his mind, Baba still addressing the shepherdess and pointing to Sapatnekar said - "This fellow blames Me and charges Me with killing his son. Do I kill people's children? Why does this fellow come to the Masjid and cry? Now I will do this I will again bring that very child back in his wife's womb." WIth these words He placed His blessing and on his head and comforted him saying - "These feet are old and holy, you are care-free now; place entire faith in Me and you will soon get your object." Sapatnekar was much moved with emotion, he bathed Baba's feet with his tears and then returned to his residence.

Then he made preparations of worship and naivedya and came with his wife to the Masjid. He offered all this to Baba daily and accepted prasad from Him. There was a crowd in the Masjid and Sapatnekar went there and saluted Baba again and again. Seeing heads clashing against heads Baba said to Sapatnekar - "Oh, why do you prostrate yourself now and then? The one Namaskar offered with love and humility is enough." Then Sapatnekar witnessed that night the chavadi procession described before. In that procession Baba looked like a veritable Pandurang (Vithal).

At parting next day, Sapatnekar thought that he should first pay one rupee as dakshina and if Baba asked again, instead of saying no, he should pay one more, reserving with him sufficient amount as expenses for the journey. When he went to the Masjid and offered one rupee, Baba asked for another as per his intention and when it was paid, Baba blessed him him saying - "Take the coconut, put it in your wife's oti (upper fold of her sari), and go away at ease without the least anxiety." He did so, and within a year a son was born to him and with an infant of 8 months the pair came to Shirdi, placed it at Baba's feet and prayed thus - "Oh, Sainath, we do not know how to redeem Your obligations, therefore we prostrate ourselves before You, bless us poor helpless fellows, henceforth let Your holy feet be our sole refuge. Many thoughts and ideas trouble us in waking and dream states, so turn away our minds from them to Your bhajan and bless us."

The son was named Murlidhar. Two others (Bhaskar and Dinkar) were born afterwards. The Sapatnekar pair thus realized that Baba's words were never untrue and unfulfilled, but turned out literally true.

Experiences of Devotees

K. Navin Chander, India
(Originally posted in the magazine "Sai Padananda" issued Oct. 1998, published by Sri R. Seshadri for Sri Sai Spiritual Center, Bangalore, India 560 028)

It was on 3rd February 1998. I was about to complete an article on Sai Baba. I heard a sharp rap at the gate of my house. I shouted; who is there?” Promptly the reply came: "Khaana Lav" (give me food). From where I sat, I could not see him. Nevertheless, I called my wife to serve food to him. She bought rice and dhal but oddly, he did not have anything on him to receive it. My wife did not feel like serving in the plate she brought. So she came back to the house, took a small cardboard and served the fare on it outside the gate. He sat on his haunches preparatory to eating.

Meanwhile, my wife came inside to fetch water for him. It did not take a couple of minutes for her to do so. But the stranger was not to be seen anywhere. There were telltale marks of his having taken the food. He did not even wash his hands. It was impossible to eat the food, that too without water, and walk away out of sight in less than a couple of minutes.

It was then the truth hit me like a whiplash. I should have known much better when he said, "Khaana laav". It was truly a command. Even during his begging rounds sometimes, Sai Baba never begged. He simply commanded, "Lassie, roti laav". I asked my wife as to how he looked like. She said, "He was lean aged and looked like a village Muslim of the old order, with a sharp beard. He was wearing a faded green lungi with brownish checks on it and a soiled white long-sleeved kurtha with a black vest on it. His head was turbaned leaving the top crown open". Though the description did not actually tally with that of Sai Baba, I was by then more than convinced who He was. I cursed myself because the food that was served was overnight food and served on cardboard outside the gate.

Later when I slowly composed myself, I went into the pooja room and begged His pardon for my lapse. At that stage my own conscience began to reply, "Your repentance is enough for me. Keep on feeding the hungry, who come to your doorstep, as best as you can. Believe me, charity especially that of food, is indeed a great spiritual virtue"

Dasganu's plight!
It is our nature to enthusiastically share our convictions about Sai devotion with others and expect them to follow the same. Those who have seen the miracles of Lord Sai tend to wish that the grace that they have received should also be bestowed upon others. Thus, every Sai devotee is a Sai servant involving in spreading the love and message of Sai. While some indulge in Sai activities with voluntary willingness, others accomplish the same indirectly by sharing their experiences with Sai. It is natural that the good results of everyone's such actions depend on their capabilities and the extent of their involvement. However, what God wants is the true love and devotion but not the magnitude of their gross efforts! In the great epic Ramayana, the efforts put forth by the squirrel on the sand is considered equal to that of mighty Hanuman. Lord Rama looked at the specks of sands that squirrel contributed to the bridge with the same love and appreciation as that of the boulders moved effortlessly by the monkey God.

Occasionally, an intense participation in spreading God's words and involvement in such service leads some to believe that their service to Sai is superior and not those of others. This leads to feelings of jealousy and hatred amongst Sai children eventually leading to their spiritual downfall. Only Lord Sai, the merciful Sadguru can save those from such eventuality.

Once, Dasganu Maharaj had to face a similar situation. The one that inspired thousands of listeners through his spellbinding Sai gospel, Dasganu was averse to one particular female devotee in Shirdi Village. He used to criticize her in others' presence, some times in a very acrid tone. Once, as Dasganu was indulging himself in such a deplorable act, Sainath Maharaj summoned Dasganu and chided him for his behavior. Baba scolded Dasganu that people involved with God's work must not possess arrogance and that Dasganu should seek forgiveness at the feet of the woman devotee who was the subject of Dasganu's contempt. It was not easy for Dasganu, the most revered kirtankar of his times who commanded respect from his followers, to scoop down and fall at the feet of a woman. However, he had to obey the Great Master and in the process he was reformed to a humble servant of God and not an arrogant apostle who thought himself to be superior to others!

My Experiences with Shri Sai Baba (May 1984) V.K.Thakur  leedharart

My wife, accompanied by a neighbouring lady, reached the maternity home in
the Taxi. I followed the Taxi on a Scooterette, On the way, I had been
praying to 'Baba' for help to my wife, who was in quite serious condition,
owing to severe pain.

After 3 minutes of reaching the maternity home, she delivered a male child.
Thus 'Baba' heard my prayer, and extended timely help.
This incident occurred in July '71, I was returning from my office. On the
main road of M. P. Electricity Board, there are 'C’ Type Residential
Quarters where there is a blind turning on account of the Quarters
constructed in round shape. While overtaking a bullock cart there a 'Leyland
tractor trolly' came on the way speedily from the front, leaving very
marginal distance and my scooter came in between these two. I applied the
brake, but it had failed.

I don't know how I could be saved at this crucial moment. When I stopped my
scooter, and took a clear breath, I saw that Baba's locket fixed in the key
ring, installed in the ignition hole of the scooter, was separated from its
original place and was lying on the foot-board of the scooter. I am very
sure that the locket was tightly fixed in the key ring and how it came out
of it was a question. 'Baba’, who saved me, can only reply.

In August 1977, I was admitted to M. P. Electricity Board Hospital for
treatment of low blood pressure. I came back after 'X.Ray* of 'KUB region'
at about 1 P. M., from the Medical College. I saw my wife sitting on the
bench at the hospital entrance. She was quite nervous. I asked her, whether
all was well.

She said, "Neeta, who had high temperature last night, is having urinery
trouble. She has not passed urine for the last 24 hours."
By this time I saw Dr. G. L. Goswami and lady Medical Officer Mrs. S. B.
Jain, coming hastily towards my wife.

Dr. Goswami told us that the baby was not permitting to insert tube, to
outlet the urine accumulation. If this stage continues, urinery bladder is
likely to burst. Mrs. Jain advised us to take her to the Medical College
Hospital in the ambulance.

On way to Medical College when the ambulance, stopped for fuel at the
petrol pump, I prayed to 'Baba* "What you are doing Baba? On the one
hand, I am under treatment, feeling too weak, and this baby... Baba
shower mercy on us, "kripa karo Gurudev."

I keep Baba's ‘Udi’ in my purse all the time. I dropped a little of 'Udi'
in the mouth of my daughter and also put it on her forehead, praying to
Baba, to save her.

When we reached the Medical College Hospital, the lady doctor on duty in
the emergency room listened to us patiently, and took my baby to the
attached bathroom. The baby was asked to keep her hands in water in a ‘tub’
and try to pass urine. She passed the urine without any trouble. Was it not,
that Baba's 'Udi' saved her at that crucial juncture?" Since then she has no
trouble, and is well with the blessings of Shri Sai Baba.

By about 10 a.m. Baba returned from Lendibaugh and then for an hour and a
half he sat with visitors. A detailed picture of these items of Sai Baba’s
daily life are given as recorded by Khaparde in his “Shirdi Diary” in a
latter section. Sometimes, during this period, he would again go out for
another round of begging. At about noon, arti was performed by the
devotees, at the end of which Baba distributed ‘udi’ to all of them and
they left for lunch. Devotees used to get the first portions of their lunch
or some other special delicacy prepared for the occasion as offering to
Baba. Baba sometimes took the whole offering and distributed it to all and
left a little for the devotee. Along with some devotees like Bade Baba and
Shama, Sai Baba sat inside the musjid for lunch and usually curtains were
drawn for privacy for his devotees. None was expected to enter the musjid
once the curtain was lowered.

The mosque was an old mud structure in such a bad shape that now and then
some of the earth and stones used to fall off from the ceiling. One day
Baba, along with some of his devotees, was having his lunch. Suddenly a
crackling sound was heard overhead by all. At once Baba lifted his hand up
in a gesture and said, “Sabar Sabar” (i.e., “wait, wait”). The noise
stopped. When everyone had finished his meal, along with the devotees Baba
also came out. At once a huge part of the ceiling - earth, stones and parts
of the rafters fell down with a loud noise exactly in the spot where Baba
was seated earlier. Only then did every one understand that Baba said,
“Wait” to the crashing roof and it did wait.
Once Sai Baba appeared to a lady at Burhampore in her dream, standing at
her door and begging for kichadi (i.e., rice cooked with dal or pulses and
salt). Later, when her husband was transferred to Akola, they went to
Shirdi and stayed there for two months. The lady longed very much to serve
kichadi to Baba as he asked her for it in her dream-vision but for some
reason or the other she could not do so for sixteen days. On the
seventeenth day she could at last prepare kichadi. By the time she arrived
there, Baba already sat for lunch and the curtain was lowered. At first she
was a little disappointed. But soon she threw up the curtain and entred
with the offering. Precisely Sai Baba was saying that he wanted kichadi
first and the devotees were in a fix as there was no kichadi. Exactly at
the moment, the lady of Burhampore was there with it! Baba took it eagerly
and ate it. Baba wanted to demonstrate to her that the experience she had
at her home town was not just a dream, but a vision which he graciously
vouched her.

Baba - A Successful Physician (May 1984)

It is said that whosoever puts his feet on the soil of Shirdi his sufferings
would come to an end. This universal fact was experienced very recently by
us.

Dear readers, my wife had been suffering from throat trouble for the last
many years. It started as an ordinary 'cough & cold' problem; but it went on
increasing day by day inspite of usual medical treatment. During my service
as a pay & Accounts Officer in the Central Excise, Indore, I consulted many
physicians of repute but there was hardly any improvement. At time she was
very miserable when she could not even eat or drink properly.

Apart from the treatment from various doctors, she had to take many
precautionary steps like avoiding quite a large number food items.

Recently, when we had the invitation to attend the Annual Gathering of
Writers at Shirdi, we were in a fix whether to go or not due to her
ailment. It, however, appears that Baba issued latent instructions to
my wife, who suddenly insisted that we must attend despite her
problem. Immediately after we reached the pious city of Shirdi, both of
us presented ourselves before the lotus feet of Sai Baba and submitted
our prayer to Him to rid her of her long suffering.

Dear readers, you will be glad to know that before leaving Shirdi after the
'Summelcn,1 surprisingly, my wife felt that had no throat trouble at all.
Lest it should be only a temporary relief, we did not mention it to anybody
then and there. Will the passage of so many days now, we are able to openly
tell that she has completely recovered from her long outstanding throat
trouble. Not only that, she has since given up the various precautionary
steps and is able to take anything she normal likes to take.

The miraculous recovery is simply on account of Baba super-human
powers as a successful physician,

On Friday the 19th of august, I decided to do a saptah of the Sai Satcharitra, so that I could finish reading it in exactly seven days time on a Thursday and take Baba's darshan and blessings when I have completed.

On the first day of my reading, before I started, I said in my mind to Baba to bless me so that I benefit spiritually by reading this saptah and my mind becomes calm and composed, and to keep my attention ever fixed on him. I also hoped that Baba would bless me in his unique way.

To my suprise, on the second day of the reading, I was in my room, when my sister walked into my room with a sketch of Baba that she was drawing as an assignment for her college. She came into the room to show it to me. It was a close up of Baba's face with his hand up with palm showing to bless. I was suprised, as it was just astonishing for me to see that while I was reading, Baba himself walked into my room and blessed me. I thanked Baba for acknowledging my worship towards him.

Again, I said to Baba, that I am reading it will full faith and hope that when I am finished with the reading on Thursday, he will bless me on completion. I decided that upon completion I would go to the Sai Baba Temple and get blessings of his holy feet, and hoped that he would in some way again acknowledge my completion (i can't help it, im always greedy for his darshans)

However, when thursday came, I fell very ill.. I was down with high fever, and could not move out of my bet. The doctor gave me several medications and I was very drowsy and sleepy throught the day. I still had a few chapters remaining, and somehow managed to complete my saptah by thursday night. I apologized to Baba that I couldn't make it to his temple and said that I would do so as soon as I get well... yet I hoped in some way he would still give me his darshans again to tell me that he is with me even though I couldn't go.

When I kept the Satchritra after I finished reading, I took prasad and udi kept in front of Baba's photo. As I was bedridden I couldn't move much. When I lifted my pillow, there was a gold bordered Orange cloth with Baba's photo on it (under my pillow). I had not kept it there, and I was suprised to see that it was there. I felt overjoyed to know that in this manner Baba reconfirmed that he is with me always. I felt that my reading had finally been blessed by Baba.

Later my wife menitoned that she had put udi on my head and kept the cloth there when I was asleep earlier that evening.

Doctor had suspected malaria and other serious infections due to the symptoms, but thanks to Baba's blessings all blood reports were clear and my health has recovered back to normal.

I am very thankful to my Saibaba, he gave me guidance at right moment for selecting a the reight guy for marriage. I am 28 years old and since last 4 years I haven't found the exact match and sometimes guys not selected me .I always pray Saibaba for marriage and this year there are so many proposal but I couldn't take decision for it. One Thursday I read on www.saibaba.org website article that related to "Guru guidance", by one nice prayer. I prayed in same way that I needed guide for life path, I am materialistic and my mind is with full of fear but you can give me guidance for selecting my life partner, to whom You selected guy as my life partner" in Saibaba temple on Thursday. I have two proposal at a moment so my mind was thinking that "How Saibaba can give an answer to me for life partner?" then I came back home by auto and thinking about how can I understand Saibaba's reply or guidance. On the way I found two vehicles and one of them had Saibaba's picture and backside was written "RAVI" so I got the answer of Saibaba in nice way. I have proposal from Ravindra who is exact suitable match for me and he proposed me before 4 months. Me and Ravi got married on 28th May 2005, I sent invitation card of marriage to Shirdi and I was waiting of Saibaba's presence at marriage function but at the end of function Saibaba present in nice way. My mother-in-law gave me jewelry and sarees, inside this bag with Saibaba picture on bag. After marriage function I reached Ravi's home, one little boy came gave "Shirdi Laddu prasad" and Saibaba pictures to my mother-in-law, I took I prasad and prayed "Stay with me and Ravi every moment" means from first day at my in-laws house Saibaba was with me. Thank you very much Saibaba for getting Ravi as a husband. He is really co-operative, loving, has good understanding and also computer technical knowledge so it is helpful to my computer engineering career and both of us are interested to go abroad.

My Sivanesan Swami ji - Part II

Contributed by Sai Premananda (Robert Meola), Berkeley, California USA, ©2002

It became clear that it was not time for me to leave Shirdi. Except for some brief one or two day trips to Newasa and Paithan, I lived in Shirdi until after Ramnavmi in April, 1985. I saw Sivanesan Swamiji sweeping and mopping the Chawdi. I saw him applying kumkum and turmeric and sandal paste to Baba's pictures. I saw him throwing coconuts into the dhuni when people requested pujas from him.

Sivanesan taught me to do Pradakshina/circumnambulation at Gurusthan and at Nandadeep at Lendi Bagh. He had me keep a neem leaf from Gurusthan. He gave me holy relics for puja. He gave me pictures of Baba. Sivanesan Swamiji provided me with every book written in English about Sai Baba that he could obtain for me to read. He was always available to answer my questions and explain things to me. Whenever I had doubts about my communication from Baba, Sivanesan was there to encourage and support my faith that I really was experiencing what I was experiencing with Baba.

Sivanesan encouraged me to meditate and I believe he was disappointed that I didn't meditate more than I did. I had only my plane ticket to London and enough money to fly back to New York when I reached Shirdi in January. Sivanesan had me give him my passport, my plane ticket and my money so that no one would take it from me while I slept below the steps outside Dwarkamai or on the platform at Dwarkamai. I handed my passport, plane ticket and money to Sivanesan Swamiji. He handed it all to Mohan Baba. More than two months later, when it was time for me to leave Shirdi, Sivanesan had Mohan Baba go to where it was all kept and return it to me. Sivanesan Swamiji arranged for me to sleep near the dhuni every night. He also arranged for my breakfast, lunch and dinner every day.

I saw Baba's devotees handing money to Sivanesan frequently. But, like Baba, he did not keep it. He had people feed me. He bought me books. He gave me pictures. He even had white clothes made for me. And, he used the money to help many people.

Baba Muktananda had given me the name, Premnath, in 1980. Sivanesan Swamiji told me that I was now Sai Premananda. When I would sit on the ledge on the wall next to Baba's dhuni to talk with Baba, sometimes women from fisher villages would come up, pranam and grab on to my big toes. I would be unable to move away or get up or prevent it from happening. Then a line of others would form to do the same thing. Some asked me to bless their children. I was embarrassed. Speaking only English, I also didn't know how to communicate with them or what to do or say. I explained the situation to Sivanesan Swamiji. Sivanesan Swamiji told me to go ahead and do as they requested me to do. He told me to allow them to grab my feet and that I should bless their children while always passing the pranams up to Baba and the requests for blessings up to Baba and allowing Baba to pass the blessings on through me.

In most places I traveled, people did not attempt to touch my feet. Yet, I had similar experiences when I visited Newasa, Paithan and Dehu. I sat briefly meditating in the room in which Jnanadev Maharaj had written Jnaneshwari. Mrs. Shanta Singh was with me. The temple pujari came in and knelt before me and touched my feet. Mrs. Singh was quite surprised. She explained to me who he was and that people who visit the temple there touch his feet and that he normally doesn't touch anyone else's feet

In Jan '98, me and my husband had moved from San Jose, CA to Boston, MA. I started my masters and he was working there and our baby was due on Sept 7th '98. In May'98 he had to move back to San Jose as his group got dismantled. I wanted to finish my studies as soon as I can by Fall 1998 and move back too. I took 3 courses in Summer and enrolled for 4 courses and project for fall. I just had 2 weeks break for summer from Aug 24th - Sept 6th. I had total faith in Baba that he'll walk me through all this. On Aug 24th I went to labor and when we went to the hospital, the nurse did ultrasound and said they have to do cesarean as the baby was in horizontal position and she went to call the doctor. I could not afford a cesarean as I would have to postpone one more semester. Me and my mom prayed Baba with total devotion and I thought that I would name my son after Baba if everything goes ok. Then the doctor came and said the baby was head down and that I would deliver in couple of hours. It was such a big relief. By Baba's grace I had a wonderful baby boy within 1 1/2 hr and I could go back to school for fall and graduate by Dec '98. I certainly could not do all of this without His grace. I think the most important think is having faith in HIM.

But there is one mistake we did. After my son was born, I talked to my husband over phone and told him my thought of naming him after Baba. But my husband didn't think it was such a good idea. So, we named him Pranav. When Pranav was 2 yrs old, he started having breathing problems which turned out to be asthma. We had seen many doctors even Homeopathic but in vein. One day I realized that it could have been because of not naming him after Baba. So, I told this to my husband and we changed his name to Pranav Sai. He had been feeling better since then and I have total faith in Baba that He certainly would take care of us as He did in the past. Om Sai Ram

Though I was not a staunch devotee, I did believe in Saibaba's Supreme Power. My marriage was scheduled to be performed in November. Due to some inconvenience on my husband's side, the date was advanced to October, with a strict word from the marriage hall's owner that we would have to forgo the whole amount if there was going to be another change. However, 10 days before marriage my husband called up and said we could not have it in October due to some problem with his visa papers. My parents were shattered. I did not know what to do, and put the burden on God. I reached a stage when I thought I would rather go to Hell than experiencing this pain. But one night suddenly I felt Baba asking me to listen to His songs. Dutifully, I did. I not only felt better, but also felt like listening to it forever. My heart became light. My mind was free now. When I was sleeping one afternoon, I again got a feeling that Baba wanted me to visit His temple far away from my house. We had not gone there before and so my parents were thinking of how to take me there. At that time, my dad's friend came and said He would take us to the temple. We went there at just the right time for aarthi. I prayed that there should not be any change of date. But a huge blow came on the next day when my husband called up and told he would not be able to come for sure in October. Therefore, my parents prepared to forgo the money and fixed it for a different date. I still clinged to my Hope that Baba would make me get married on the same date. Just the night before my parents were about make a fresh payment, my husband called up and said he had obtained his visa and would be there for the wedding as scheduled. I was astonished. He was right when He said, "If you take one step towards me I shall a hundred towards you"

Swati
I have been a devotee of my dear loving Baba for almost 3 years now and I am happy that He has drawn me towards Him. My only prayer to Him always is that He should never separate me from His Lotus feet and keep me in His path of devotion. I have always felt Baba's presence around me and talking about one experience would be like a drop in the mighty ocean. By Baba's grace, I have been able to visit Shirdi twice in the last 2 years. The first year when I went to Shirdi, I was a girl who had absolutely no confidence in herself, someone who shied away from friends and relatives due to a sense of very low self -esteem since, being an engineering graduate, I had not been able to get a good job for almost 4 years. I had started doubting my own capabilities. That year, when Baba called me to Shirdi, I prayed to Him that if I get a good job soon, I would visit Shirdi the same year. And as per His assurance, He did get me a job .My job, a very good one, literally came walking into my hands and by His grace I performed excellently in my assignments. I had started on a very low salary. The management was pleased with my performance and within a span of 6 months, I got three increments. Accordingly, I started praying to Baba that, now that He has fulfilled my prayers, He should call me to Shirdi now. That too happened very soon. Last December, my parents, sister, uncle and three aunts set out on our way to Shirdi. We boarded a bus to Shirdi from Bombay and reached there at 3:30 AM in the morning. Since it was the Christmas day, the crowd in Shirdi was just too much. The bus in which we would come was supposed to pick us up at 12:30 the same day to leave for Bombay and my parents and me were supposed to leave for our native the day after. My father told me that there was no way we could attend the noon aarti. We saw the Kakad arti on the television sitting outside the Samadhi Mandir .I thought that if not for aarti, I would at least go and have darshan of Baba and place my head at His Samadhi. However, by the time all of us had our breakfast and my aunts and sister did some shopping for Baba's pendants, cassettes, statue, etc., it was 11:00. I was very upset by this time, since I was waiting for them and now it seemed almost impossible to go in since the queue was too long. People had queued up from morning 7:00 for the aarti at 12:00.Everyone told me that I should be happy that at least I got a chance to come to Shirdi. I was however not able to control my tears. The very thought that Baba had called me to Shirdi and not allowed me near His Samadhi was making it unbearable for me. I started praying to Baba that I wanted to touch His samadhi, or else I would have no peace of mind .I decided in my mind that I would come to Shirdi all alone very soon when it was not a holiday season, since by now it was very clear that there was absolutely no way I could go in and have Darshan. All were dejected. I felt my journey was fruitless. I was going on questioning Baba in my mind as to why He was making this happen to me. Just then, I saw my uncle speaking to a man. Before we could ask anything, he was off with that man somewhere only to return with special entrance passes. My joy knew no bounds. Before I could know anything, I was inside the Samadhi Mandir, taking in the warmth and love emanating from my dear, dear Baba.I could not believe that one moment I was out crying and now I was inside touching Baba's Samadhi .We were there for almost 6 - 8 minutes .I cannot narrate the peace, joy and happiness, I felt within after that. I was only thanking Baba repeatedly for listening to me once again. I asked my uncle how he managed to get the special entrance pass. He told that the man he was speaking to be a very old friend of his and happened to be a trustee of the temple. But it is a miracle that in that crowd, he happened to meet my uncle and recognise him and offered to give him the passes. I am convinced that it was Baba who had sent him to my uncle and that this was just one of His innumerable Leelas for his devotees. Baba has always pampered me the way a mother pampers her young one and caters to all its whims and fancies. I thank Baba for all His love, beg, and pray to Him that he continues to bestow His grace on me. God, my mother, help me to follow your teachings and be a good person in life.

I would like to post my experiences in Shirdi and with Sai Sat Charitra, i.e. With Saibaba himself. I read many books of philosophy and religious scriptures and I had started feeling subtle vibrations at holy places like temples and pilgrimages. Once, two of my friends and me wanted to visit Shirdi. We reached Shirdi and had darshan at the Samadhi temple. It felt nice, however I could not feel much vibrations there although I felt a feeling of calmness, serenity and silence.

Then we went for the darshan of Gurusthan and then to Masjid Mai, We had darshan of dhuni and then opposite to the dhuni was the stone on which Baba used to sit. Devotees were placing their heads on the stone and I stood near the stone waiting for the small queue to get over.

As I was standing, I felt as if someone was hitting my legs with the sand. I was wearing jeans and when I looked down there was nothing to be seen hitting my legs still the feeling was the same and soon the feeling took over the other parts of the body. My friends had the same feeling. I had never felt the subtle vibrations so strong, ever. I was getting overwhelmed. We stood in the queue, which was reduced to about three devotees. I placed both my hands on the stone and then the head. What great energy I felt. Whole of my vertebrae column was vibrating and I felt energy rushing between my eyebrows. I stayed there for about 3 minutes. My friends later told that a devotee wanted to disturb me as there were devotees waiting in the queue. But another devotee stopped him by saying "Achi Bhakti kar raha hai" ( he is doing good devotion). I was like a drunk with the divine energy of Baba. I sat besides the stone enjoying the bliss and the energy I was receiving. Both my friends had the same energy. We sat there and again and again put our heads on the holy stone with the same effect. The feeling of that great energy the presence was felt even when we reached hotel and thereafter for few days. This presence is always felt when ever I go to the holy land Shirdi.

We had bought Sai Baba’s pictures, the original one with the umbrella. After reaching home, I was watching the photo and the energy began to rise within and without. What energy that is, one thing is sure that such energy cannot be created by us, but can only be received by grace. I feel so thankful to merciful Baba who showers this grace on unworthy child like me. Whenever I feel this presence, I am sure that it cannot be produced by my efforts.

Once I got impatient and thought why I cannot have this energy every second of the day. I want to be in the same energy always (I still have this feeling). So, I decided that I would sit watching Baba’s picture until I get the self-realization. I decided that I will do nothing else but keep watching Baba’s picture. I watched the picture for about an hour. I thought that I should also read Sai Sat Charitra, as the energy felt was too much.

I casually opened the book and began to read. The chapters 18 and 19th, chapters had the story of the author who had the similar thought of impatience. Baba had sent him to chitchat with another devotee Shama. Shama then narrated the story of Mrs. Radhabai Deshmukh, who had decided and gave up food until Baba gave her a mantra. Then Baba called her and told her his own story where he had said that he had served his Guru for long and his guru had asked for two paise. Those were Shraddha (faith) and Saburi (patience). Here I was struck with the word patience with great impact and also in the second last paragraph the words To some devotee, who was practicing Hath-Yoga, He sent word that he should leave off Hath-Yoga practices, sit quiet and wait (Saburi) struck me. I then left the idea of hath and decided to remember and watch his picture with Saburi. Here I remember the Shree Ramakrishna Paramhansa’s words that how could one who think about consciousness get unconscious. So how can one who watches the picture of consciousness incarnate get unconscious? I still meditate on Baba’s picture and feel this consciousness within and without. I was also very much against the miracles. There is a very good book Meher Baba on Sai Baba. In which Meher Baba had explained they perform miracles so that they can attract devotees and give them what they want them to give. Also, there is nothing like miracles. Our small mind when it sees something happening, that is beyond its grasp it calls it miracle. Nothing was and is beyond Baba’s grasp. For instance, television, or phone or radio or even switching of the light bulb would be termed as miracles by the people living in 15th century. In the similar manner, many times when I would feel troubled and casually read Sai Sat Charitra. I had opened the chapters that would get my agitated mind and lead it to peace. Other great thing about this blessed book the invaluable gift to us by Baba is that even holding it makes me feel the presence. Once I was in deep emotional pain. I felt that the very roots of my being were shaken and I choose to get in this painful experiences rather than avoiding them. The pain was deep and I thought I would go mad by this painful experience. My body was paralyzed by the emotional pain and I was lying on the bed. At that time, I put Sai Sat Charitra on my heart I felt much energy going from the book in my heart and balanced it. The pain was there but the energy to sustain was received.

I have also bought a shawl from Sai Sansthan Shop in Shirdi and get touched by Samadhi of Baba. The shawl when placed on my body also makes me feel this presence. I had this desire of touching and placing my head on the articles used by Baba. Last time I was I Shirdi and was visiting a house of a devotee of Baba, when Baba was still in the human form. The ancestor of the devotee suddenly stood up and started showing me the articles used by Baba, the kafni, the satka, the tin pot, the footwear, which were gifted by Baba to his forefather devotee. Not only this, he insisted that I hold them for a while. There were devotees in queue before me and after me, none he asked to hold them but me. SadGuru Sainath Maharaj ki Jai.

A Sai devotee
This is a reply to a devotee, who wanted to understand the great Baba’s response for her/his wish and wish fulfilling prayer. I am just giving you one of my experiences with BABA. I have a wonderful book"SAIBABA THE MASTER" by E.BHARADWAJA. I started reading this book, just merely to fulfil the wish/desire I had in my mind. Till an year back, my relation with BABA was some thing like give and take. I mean here, I pray to him in my mind like I am reading this book and I want a particular thing. He used to respond positively exactly in the last moment of finishing this book. Of course, I was bit reasonable, I mean here I never asked him like something impossible. Because this is against his philosophy, we must deserve the thing we ask for (from him). This is what he demonstrated to a rich guy, who came for Brahmagnana. O.K, Let's not get deviated. An year back, I think I completed parayana of this book some 11 times or more successively taking some three days a reading. You can understand, how much time I spent not less than 5-6 hours a day continuously for a month or so. All I did is for his(Baba) grace to process my application to join SAP as SAP professional. This was the time SAP professionals were being paid highest in the market. But I came to know that I was rejected. That was the second time I failed from my kamadhenu ("SAIBABA THE MASTER"). The first time I failed was when I wanted to become an Indian Civil Servant without putting the required amount of effort. I ignored this case because, I was like the guy who asked for what he didn't deserve. But in the second failure, I couldn't agree with BABA that I was not amongst the deserved ones. When I failed in the second time, I tried to understand myself. Am I wrong in thinking that I don't belong to the non-deserved candidates? If so, I am an egoist. If I am not wrong BABA hasn't shown grace on me, subsequently the deal failed between me and BABA. But he(BABA) said, I(BABA) should return 100 times to the amount I take from devotees. So where did my prayers gone. No where, He knows every thing. He is mercy no doubt about it. He knows what is best for us, not we. Now, I understood why BABA didn't make me a SAP professional. The job market for SAP profession disappeared some thing like a water bubble, what appeared to me like an unbeatable career I Dec 98.Whose knowledge is real knowledge is it my knowledge about myself or his knowledge about myself. That's up to you. Even though, my relation with him(BABA)was strained for a day or two some where Dec 98. He never minds for it. It is the kid who gets angry with his/her mother for not getting what he/she wanted from mother and responds towards mother accordingly. But mother always thinks which is best for the kid and acts accordingly but not according to kid's wish. This is the law for the kids who stay together with mother like we all with BABA. No prayer goes unanswered in his masjid. The only thing is we understand some times and sometimes not. I am sure, BABA is trying to get some thing better

Sai Devotee


My family regards Baba as its Head and in turn we are blessed by Baba to the extent that whatever we pray to Him, He fulfills. There are a good number of such experiences of His grace on us, which have been penned by me from time to time and published in different magazines and newspaper. I narrate one of them.

It was the decade 1970s when we were financially tight but pulling on our livelihood somehow. I thought that whatever I get is with Baba's blessings, I owe a part of my earnings to Him. I started sending by money order or check a token amount to Shirdi Sai Baba Sansthan, which I still continue. You will be surprised to note that I never felt any financial crisis there after, and the cash box in our house is never empty, even on the last days of the month. I feel, Baba's saying,"..... The devotee, those who pay dakshina to Me, get 10 times more to whatever they offer and make their own ways in the spiritual life...." is 100 percent true, and He takes care of him. "You look to me, I look to you." "You take one step forward, I will take 10 steps forward for your welfare."

I strongly believe in two words Shradha & Saburi given by Shree Lord Saibaba. This two words helps everyone in frustrating situations of life. Everyday I pray to him and remembering that "If you look at to me, I will look at you" slogan. I understand that whatever you give to me is the best for me. With the blessing of Lord Shree Saibaba, I have good wife, a three month old son, and good job. His majesty is proven.

One of my latest experiences is that I am having three children; they are all settled in America. I wanted to go US for the delivery of my younger daughter. Before leaving India, I needed medical checkup. So I went for general checkup, I am a healthy person, I used to think, but the doctor who checked me said that I have "Breast cancer" and that I needed a surgery immediately. At that time, I did not worry but put the entire burden on Baba. The surgery was done immediately. Even though, none of my children was with me. At that time, all of my relatives were by my side with so much love and affection. Through my surgery, chemotherapy and radiation Baba made sure that my body did not go through any pain. Many people told different stories and experiences about cancer, but I never got frightened at all. Why should I be frightened? I was always under the graceful eyes of Baba This happened in the year 2003 on 14th Jan. Until this day by Baba's grace, I am not facing any health problems. Even though I started doing, my entire household works, as soon as my surgery done, that was from 18 days only. My children are Baba devotees; during my surgery, they gave me a lot of courage. They always believe in Baba, so at time of my daughter's delivery even though no one went for her help, baba made sure that she was looked after with care by arranging one or the other person to help her in her need. By baba wonderful grace, she gave birth to a healthy and cute baby with out any complications. Both of them are very healthy with Baba's blessings .I think in every problem baba is there to solve with love, one thing we should have 'Shraddha bakthi'. With the grace of Baba, all my children are leading happy life. I am attending Baba's bhajans regularly, which keeps me happy and peaceful. Bestow your kindness always on us Baba one word to all Baba devotees, always believe in Baba and he will look after you. Baba, I bow to your lotus feet.

Sai devotee
Let me share my wonderful experience that happened only just because of Baba's immense mercy. Baba solved our family problem in his unique way simply. I do not know how to express effectively. My sister's marriage was a big problem in our family. No match is getting finalized. She dint even settle with a job. All our prayers are always aimed at her settlement. I used to pray to Baba always about her welfare. My first plea to Baba was always about her settlement in life. Both my spouse and myself always prayed for her. Three years back Baba (in the form of a very old man) once appeared in my husband's dream and in that he asked Baba as to when he will settle her marriage. He did not remember the date but he remembered the month that Baba told i.e. somewhere in August. He told all this to me and I was very happy that the old man is none other than our Baba. From then we always waited in the month of August every year that something would happen and she will get settled. But in vain. But my faith never turned low. I always felt that Baba's words never go false. Even a chapter in Sai Satcharitra has emphasis on this. So many things happened. Three years passed. But somewhere I always got reminded that Baba would definitely do something and help us. I tried many times to post in Prayer club requesting devotees to pray on behalf of my sister but it was not published all the times. Then I thought that Baba has something in his view and stopped posting articles and decided to post only after she gets married narrating the mercy of my Lord. One match came, which was almost settled, and everything was OK. But in that case also I dint ask Baba that he should settle this match. I just prayed " Baba you know what is best for us. If it is your will then this match will be finalized. Everything is your mercy". The match got finalized. I don't know what is going to happen.

Somehow from the very beginning my spouse didn't have good impression about the match after observing the way they are behaving. All of a sudden they said they don't want to go further and just disappeared without any contact or any intimation. We were totally shocked. Our family was in total despair. Did not know what to do. I collapsed on hearing the news. I wept before Baba about the matter. Then somewhere my inner voice told that Baba would never allow His devotee to perish in despair. I got reminded of the words from Sai Satcharitra " Baba never turns down his devotees. He knows better than anyone what is good for his devotees according to their eligibility. He will never let anything adverse to happen. Keep unflinching faith in him. Keep Shraddha and Saburi." These powerful words consoled me. From then I did not ask Baba about her marriage or anything. I simply prayed to Baba to just take care of us and totally surrendered to him and put the burden on him. My faith increased in that tough time. One day early in the morning a wonderful dream came in which I was in Baba's temple and glaring at Baba's Murthy silently. Suddenly the Moorthi turned into a vibrant, glowing live Baba with golden Mukut and he just started smiling at me. I just prostrated before Baba and again I asked when my sister's marriage would happen. Baba again smiled in his usual way. Then he started giving Prasad but I told him the worship of your feet is more than anything and I just held Baba's feet with reverence, shedding tears of joy on his feet". I woke up and I was in great joy. What a wonderful dream? How lucky am I. I touched Baba's feet in my dream. What else is required other than a place at His holy feet? I was in total ecstasy. I felt everything in this world is trivial other than Sadguru's mercy. I told my husband about the dream. I thought Baba has something in his mind. Just after 4 days one match has come.

They came and they got interested in our match and immediately the same day they expressed their willingness. Next to next day engagement was over and the marriage was celebrated very grandly within two weeks of time in August only as Baba told. We were very happy. The guy n his family is very good. See Baba's miracle. Even though we had very little time everything got arranged very well in time and the function was very successful. We dint expect that we can make such arrangements. It's all Baba's mercy. He rescued our family. Not only in this issue but Baba helped us always and he was always there with us in our toughest times lending his Abhayahastam. What we are today is Baba's Bhiksha. It is all Baba's mercy. I don't know how to express my gratitude except to worship him and pray sincerely. I request humbly everyone to keep faith in our merciful Lord Sai Ram and try to follow his principles in our daily lives. Rest Baba will take care of us. All glories to Sai Ram. All glories to the great devotees. Jai Sai Ram.

It is interesting to record one more experince of a living devotee as an example of one of the most extrodinary leels of the Shirdi Saint. Dr. Rustomji, a homeopath who was once engaged in mediacal work in the homeopathic despensary in Shirdi, tells us of this wonderful miracle. It appears that the doctor was owing a sum of Rs. 300/- to a certain party in Bombay. The doctor came down to Bombay and made out a cheque for that amount and passed it on to his friend, telling him that he could cash it when he liked. On returning home, however, the doctor found much to his dismay that his pass-book showed that he had not that much balance in his account. The thought that his cheque might be dishounored, and what his friend would think about him in consequence upset the doctor very much. In this predicament, with his usual implicit faith in his Guru, Dr. Rustomji pleaded with Sai Baba to get him out of the impasse. His prayer was answered in a strange way. A couple days later a casual acquaintance called on the doctor and asked him if he would keep a small packet for him which he would come and claim after three months. Dr. Rustomji was surprised at this unusual request and the man what the packet contained. “It contains the sum of Rs. 300/-”, was the amazing reply! “Do you mind if I use the money”, asked the doctor promptly. The gentleman said he would not mind what the doctor did as long as the money was returned to him when he came to claim it after three months. One can imagine the doctor’s reaction! Surely this was Baba’s leela, he felt. He rushed to the bank with the amount and after ascertaining that hischeque had not yet been presented he paid in the amount into his account with a sigh of relief. His honour was saved. Three months passes by, but the man who had given him the money to keep did not turn up. Nor did the doctor know about his wherabouts. After six months Dr. Rustomji suddenly saw his benefactor walking down the road. The doctor at once went up to him and after greetings were exchanged said, “Why did you not claim your money all these months? You can take it back now.” But the man so addressed looked blank and said he had not given any money to the doctor. Thinking that the man was joking, the doctor tried to press the packet of notes into his hands. But the gentleman

Post by: Dipika on November 06, 2005, 11:17:55 AM
I would like to add two from among the many remarkable miracles that I actually experienced as a token of Shri Sai Baba’s infinite love and protection. I somehow feel an urge to reveal these miracles here as a gesture of gratitude to my great guru.

Round about the year 1950, I started suffering from a peculiar ailment of the throat, a severe irritation and congestion which prevented me from indulging in my cherished hobby of singing. As a sincere student of vocal Hindustani classical music, I was apprehensive and miserable. In about 10 minutes, my voice would become hoarse, and I would have to put down my tanpura with a feeling of frustration. I consulted many doctors, both allopathic and homeopathic, but no one was able to give me the slightest relief. After six months of unremitting torture, I went to Shirdi. As I stood before Sai Baba samadhi, my heart and eyes suddenly welled up with tears, and in an impassioned outburst I poured out my protest to my Guru. Having thus relived my pent-up feelings, I came out of the Samadhi Mandir and went over to visit a friend of mine who at that time stayed in the precincts of the sansthan. My friend and I discussed and talked about several topics of interest, and in her pleasant company I almost forgot my misery and my recent outburst at the Samadhi. At about 7.30 p.m. I took leave of my friend to go to the room that had been allotted to me. It was one of those old rooms, on the ground floor, just behind the Guru Sthan. I opened the lock and entered the room which was absolutely vacant and unfurnished except for my bag and bedding which lay still unopened in a corner of the room. Thinking that I would make myself comfortable, I started removing my sari from my left shoulder by unfastening the pin that held it up. As I removed the folds I heard something rustling in the sari; and a small packet about two inches long made up in a white paper fell from my sari to the ground. For a moment I was perplexed and looked around me, wondering what had happened. But the door and windows of the room were shut, and there was no one there but me. I picked up the little packet. It was neatly folded as if by a compounder or a chemist and as I carefully unfolded it I discovered to my amazement that it contained 6 or 7 tiny white tablets such as are commonly used in Homeopathy. When I realized the significance of this, I draped my sari again and rushed out to my friend with the tablets in hand. My friend was devoted to Baba and had had experiences of Baba’s leelas. She said, “You understand, don’t you, that this is Baba’s prasad. What are you going to do about it?” I replied: “I am going to take all these tablets right now”, and I put these pellets in my mouth. Strangely enough, I did not then somehow connect this miracle with my urgent prayer for my throat. It was when I returned home and that all the congestion in my throat had entirely disappeared that I relaxed the magnitude of the miracle with which I had been blessed. The medicine, whatever it was, literally dropped like manna from heaven and healed me, perhaps, of some serious malady. My heart overflowed with gratitude.

A year or so later I experienced another incredible manifestation of Baba’s Grace. I was to go to Poona alone for some work. My husband could not come even to see me off because he was busy attending a meeting. Anyway, he had reserved a seat for me in one of those cubicles in a corridor train in the Deccan Queen. There was still half an hours time for the train to start. As I sat in my seat near the window, sipping tea, I soon noticed that a well-dressed middle-aged gentleman was pacing up and down the platform of the V.T. Station. Every time this man passed my window he looked at me with interest. I must explain here that I suffer from a curious lapse of memory in recognizing faces. I may be introduced to a person and then meet him or her several years later, I cannot recall it. Due to this defect, I was often misunderstood which made me miserable and ultra-sensitive. Seeing this gentleman looking at me with interest, I now felt that this perhaps was another of those persons I had met and did not recognize. I, therefore, smiled and wished him, whereupon the gentleman came rushing up to me and with great familiarity enquired where I was going and whether I was alone, etc. This put me off my guard and thinking that he was indeed an acquaintance whom I had failed to remember, I readily agreed to his suggestion that he should join me in my compartment. The gentleman rushed in with his suitcase, just as the train was about to start and sat opposite me. But we had hardly gone a 100 yards when the stranger started showing himself in his true colors. From his speech and deportment I discovered to my horror that he was not a gentleman, and that I had placed myself in a nasty situation. Suddenly I found that he had bolted the door of our compartment! With courage, however, I got up and unlocked the door. I dared not go out into the corridor because I had with me my suit-case a rare sari costing more than a thousand rupees, belonging to someone else. In this predicament, I sat down again and concentrated with all my heart on my Master and prayed to him to rescue me from this precarious situation. No sooner had I uttered this prayer mentally, a unique miracle manifested itself! As I turned my eyes to the door, I saw a porter standing there, looking at me quizzically. How can a porter have appeared just at that identical moment in my compartment and this too in a running train which had not stopped at any station! Was he indeed a real porter or was he a projection of my Master’s thought of protection for one who took refuge in him? Anyway I sprang up from my seat with alacrity, told the porter to remove my luggage and cleared out into the open corridor bogie. As I left the compartment I cast a glance at the miscreant and saw a look of utter disconcerted surprise on his face. As I occupied another seat, I tried to tip the porter, but looking at me with indulgence he refused to take the money. I took his hand and pressed a coin into it, whereat the Divine messenger quietly took it and went away. Now very strangely enough all this time I did not realize what a miracle I was experiencing. It was only a minute after the porter went away that I understood with a shock the significance of it all. I rushed up and down the whole corridor looking everywhere for my savior, but there was no sign of him. I got down at Poona thrilled and chastened.

Since both these miracles are extraordinary, I relate them in detail, without the slightest exaggeration. These miracles may seem incredible to skeptics, but it is not our concern to convince the non-believers. Faith is a gift, and it is only those who have the faith and vision who are able to achieve. Much of life’s secret beauty and fascination would be lost without the basic attitude of faith. To be responsive to the hidden powers and charm of mysticism is an enlightened approach. It confirms man’s humble realization of his very restricted knowledge and thus lays him open to lovely glimpses of the Eternal. Faith, therefor, is a conquest, as it renews our vision and redirects our energies silently towards the enigma of creation.

These and many miracles occurred in my life in the early years of my attachment to my Guru. Every time I experienced a miracle, I was drawn closer to my Master in wonderment and gratitude. But a stage came when the miracles stopped completely and abruptly. Sai Baba had achieved his purpose. Through this very human medium he roused me from apathy and won me over to God, as it were, and when he knew that I was securely transformed and loved him for his own sake, then Baba stopped these spontaneous expressions of his infinite compassion. The miracle is not an end, it is the means for securing the sadhaka’s interest in his own ultimate purpose and destiny. Thus, God and Gurus fulfill themselves in strange and varied ways.

I would like to share one of my experiences with all the Sai devotees. The experience is regarding my job. I am studying final semester of my Master's and I am a teaching assistant for my department. As I am a TA I have to teach the labs and somehow the Instructor cancelled the labs for that course and the department was in a fix what to do and they were paying me without me doing nothing. At the same time I have applied for a job in December and I got the interview on the last week of January i.e. on Thursday and then I was selected and they called me for the second interview which was on Thursday Feb12th. I asked them that I would take the second interview on next Monday i.e. on Feb 16 since it was short time for me to prepare for the interview and they refused and asked me to take on Thursday only. The following week they offered me a job and then I applied for my H1B, which I got in 5 days. Finally, I joined the job a week ago. Since this job is in the university, I asked the permission from the Manager to attend classes so that I can finish my Master's and he accepted my request. I would not have got a chance to take this job if I would have been teaching labs, as it was the middle of the semester. All this was because of my dear SAI.

Dear Sai devotees I am very happy and blessed to share my wonderful experience in my life. Baba has been there for me at all times in my entire life, but my belief in him was not complete until my recent experience. I have been married for 3 years and since an year we started planning to have a kid, but I had some fertility problems, So my doctor started to give medication which will help me to conceive, while having the treatment the important clause of it was, I can use this medication for only 6 months and if I don't conceive with in 6 months then I have to go through the most painful fertility treatments.5 months passed and there was no positive result and I almost lost the hopes but for the first time in my life I totally surrendered my self to Baba and left the rest to him and stopped worrying about my problem completely and started praying him daily by offering some prasad to him first thing in the morning , meditate for few minutes, take some Vibuti and read the SatCharitra, it was a amazing that I was so relaxed and relived of all tensions by doing this and the ultimate miracle was that, I was pregnant on the edge of my treatment that is on the last month of the treatment, I can't explain you in words how thrilled I was. With this Sai leela in my life I am happy that I am pregnant and with Baba's grace I will have a healthy child, also I am "more happy" that my devotion and belief has increased tremendously. My suggestion to all the Sai devotees, is to leave your all worries and tensions to Sai and pray him daily and if possible try to read Satcharitra and then see the miracle, I am sure that every one will have their own Baba miracles in their life sooner or later... just try once and see the difference. Bolo Sri Sai Nadh Maharaj Ki Jai.

Sriram Rachakonda, Singapore
I am very happy to share my recent experience with you all again. From the day one I landed in Singapore, I have been searching for SAIBABA temple but unsuccessful. Recently I wrote about this in Saivichaar asking our Sai devotees to help me in finding a Baba temple in either Singapore or Malaysia. On one occasion my Cousin Sivaram, who is staying in Hyderabad wrote me an email stating that I should not worry about searching Saibaba temple and Baba would soon help me in this regard. I recently shifted to a new place in Singapore and on 22nd of September I casually went to a nearby Eeshwar temple in Queenstown. Now see the miracle. I saw people were doing bhajans and prayers by placing a big Saibaba photo together with some other photos in a big open place in that temple. I at once got tears for his kindness and for bringing me to such a nearest place to that temple even though I should have taken another house, in which case I could not have seen this temple. I participated in that bhajans and even borrowed the book THE GOD WHO WALKED ON EARTH from the people who organize that bhajans every Saturday. For all these days I have been working under high pressures in my current project that makes me restless and lose peace of mind. Reading the events written in that book are really making me very stable, happy and mentally cool. How kind is Saibaba? Now I can go and visit, participate in Sai activities here also. He is ever guiding me and helping me in all the ways. OM SAI SRI SAI JAYA JAYA SAI.

Dear devotees, I would like to share with you some of the wonderful experiences I had and the blessings I got from Baba. The day before my wedding there was a function in my house. I prayed to Baba that he must attend my wedding and bless me. The function began in the morning. As it proceeded for about half an hour three swamijis dressed in white and an old swamiji in saffron clothing with Satcharita and Baba's photo in his hand turned up and stood in the front door. My parents couldn't believe their eyes and they shouted from outside saying "Baba has come to the function". I saw the swamijis and the Satcharitha in the hands of one swamiji I immediately knew that Baba fulfilled my wish and moreover they tied an orange thread in my right hand and gave me udi and kumkum as prasad, chanted a few hymns and left immediately.

I am thankful to Baba for showing me a wonderful person as my husband and pray that his blessings are always there with us.

A Sai devotee
I want to share my good news with you and I also want you to pray for me. I recently got married to the kindest and generous guy ever, and I am so happy as he makes me so happy. When came back to work a month after my wedding I was called to attend an interview, at the interviews I went point blank in everything, I just couldn't remember the stuff they asked me about and I am working in the field that the questions revolved around. When I came out of the interview, I told my husband there is no chance in this world that I got that post. Two weeks later, I received a letter of appointment that I did actually get the post. We were so excited and I thank swami for this as it was his doings only. Then two weeks later I found out that I am pregnant, and this was greater news as my husband and I want to start a family as soon as possible. I am so happy but also scared at the same as I get a lot of pains sometimes. I ask all you devotees to pray together with me that I don't have any complications throughout my pregnancy and that I am still in my trimester period and I want to be healthy and strong enough for my baby. Dear sai devotees, I really do not want anything to happen to my baby so I ask for your prayers and with swamis blessings everything will go well.

A Sai Bhaktha
Since my childhood, I have known my grand mother and parents worshipping Sai Baba, which even I followed. I have read Sai Satcharitra many many times. About 10 years back, in my previous company I was in Delhi, I was asked to go to Aurangabad via Bombay on an urgent work. They had arranged my air ticket up to Aurangabad. I had been there and completed my work. Before return, I asked our management in Delhi whether I could return by flight, but they refused to give me permission and asked me to come by train.

I was disappointed, but I have no choice but to come back by train. In Aurangabad, I took a three wheeler and was going to the railway station to book my ticket. We almost reached the station and all of a sudden, the auto driver had asked me why not I take darshan of Baba. Even then, it did not strike me that I am somewhere near Shirdi. I asked him which Baba. Then he replied, it is Shirdi Sai Baba. Believe me friends, though I am a regular reader of Sai Satcharitha, it never struck me that Aurangabad is close to Shirdi. Thanks a million to the auto driver. I was in tears.

Then I took his directions, went up to Shirdi by bus, and had Sai darshan for the first time in my life.

It reminds me of Baba's sayings that he will drag his children wherever they are and how far they may be.I believe that auto driver is none but Baba himself.

I work as system administrator. I had lot of problems in my last office. I was unable to continue working there and I can't even resign, that's my bread. I started looking out for a job almost from 30 months. I was unsuccessful. I almost lost hopes in life. I don't know what to do. Suddenly one day I remembered that I bought "SAI SATCHARITA " in 1994 in Shirdi, which I have not read at all. Decided to read SAI SATCHRITA. Thursday 26th February 2004 I started reading, same night around 9pm I got a call from USA for an interview. I finished my interview at 10PM. being it was Thursday I need to rush to SAI Mandir. Where the mandir closes at 10pm. and when I reached it was almost closed people were coming out and nobody were allowed. I was almost in tears; suddenly one security guard of the mandir helped me for darshan of SAI. Wednesday 3rd March 2004 I finished reading SAI SATCHRITA . Same day after lunch around 2.30pm I got a call from Indian office saying I have been selected and I have been asked to collect my offer letter. I almost jumped in air, I could not stop my tears and, everybody in my house was very happy. My family and I will always be thankful to SAI. After this incidence every month, I am finding new things happening in my life. No, I don't worry for anything everything SAI will take care. Thanks very much Sai.

It was last August, when I was going to Shirdi. I planned for almost 4 years to go to Shirdi but couldn't plan a trip. But it was in the month of Aug 2003 when I was just crossing the reservation counter in my place, a thought struck me that I should immediately go to Shirdi and zoom I went into the counter and purchased the ticket and before I could realize, completed the trip to my dream place, SHIRDI. The train from Chennai reached Pune at around 11:25 pm and I took an Auto and asked the automan himself to drop me in the bus stand from where I can go to Shirdi and he obliged very devotedly and without charging me much. I did get a bus and there was just one seat like it was reserved for me. Though I told the driver to drop me at a place from where I can catch another bus to Shirdi, he was about to make to get down at a wrong place when he was scolded and stopped by an old man sitting next to me and was looking exactly like Baba. After this the bus went on for about half an hour and then the old man stopped the bus, asked me to get down along with him and gave me directions to catch the auto which was as if waiting for me just across the road and go to the nearest Ahmednagar Bus stand from where there are plenty of buses to Shirdi. It was 1 pm in the mid of the night at an alien place that I got the help of that old man who was none other than Baba himself. I am planning my next trip to Shirdi shortly.

I am a single parent with two boys - aged 8 & 10. The grace of Sai Baba has touched my life at every turn in the past 5 years that I started attending Sathsanghs and Bhajans and Aartis of our beloved master Sai Baba. There have been times in my life - between divorce, children's custody issues and their visitation with their father and some financial issues - which I have felt much engulfed. But every time I surrender completely I feel his grace showered on me. Every time I say, "So be it. It's o.k. Baba, You guide me. You have brought me to it, so, You give me the most suitable solution", my difficulties dissolve like they do not exist. I don't know what happens but things looks so much brighter. I am grateful to Sai Baba for gracing me with the opportunity to be aware of Him and be able to experience it.

We live in the USA and recently visited Shirdi. It was a memorable trip. Everything went right - just as Sai Satcharita says - If Baba wants it, you will get there. It really seemed like Baba's hand was in everything - in planning the trip to its finally coming together. It was a very peaceful trip. My wish is that every Sai devotee experiences what my family & me experienced. Returning from Shirdi, somehow I feel I have been advised to spread a bit of what I received so abundantly. Therefore, I have taken it upon myself to give Sai Baba's udi to whoever I feel would appreciate it. So far to whoever I have offered Sai Baba's udi - be it Indian or American, they have accepted it with respect and devotion. At the same time, I am acutely aware (as Sai Satchrit says) I am merely an instrument and the letter "I" is not important in my spreading some happiness as I am sure which will be the case to whoever's forehead Sai's udi touches. To end my little excerpt, it is my prayer to Sai that that the inner voice, which I hear, may always be there and also to give me courage to follow it. Also the same inner voice, which I have discovered, let it be heard by all of Sai devotees.

SAIRAM, BABA after I lost my job with the bank, there were other jobs, which I had undertaken and they did not last. Now I have a job with an international firm, I strongly believe that this is the job you had in mind for me, and I know that it is with your blessings I have secured this job. I sincerely thank you for showering your blessings on me. However, BABA I cannot work with a peace of mind as I have other more serious problems bugging me, which you are aware of you. I sincerely seek your blessings and guidance in solving these problems and if these problems are not settled soon, I will be in hot soup! You know what I mean BABA. I pray to you BABA for your sincere help. SAIRAM

My father went through a very terrifying experience this month. Some gangsters showed him a gun and took away a huge amount of money he was carrying at that time. Sai Baba I want to thank you for saving my father's life. I am not worried about the money. It will come today and go tomorrow but I really appreciate you saving his life during this situation. Thank you very much for all your help, please stay with him, and recover him from the shock he has undergone through.

Karuna Chauhan
Thanks to Baba, I was cured from Bals palsy in just two weeks. I was told by the doctor that there was no guarantee that I would be completely recovered. Due to Bals palsy, I had slurred speech, the left side of my face partially paralyzed and I could not close my left eye. I was unable to say Baba's name. I had Baba's audiotape in my car, which I never got a chance to listen to. My glance fell on the picture of Baba on the tape, I got very emotional. I prayed to Baba to cure me as soon as possible. Continuously, for two weeks I did speech therapy by reciting Baba's bhajans and saying Baba's name out aloud. On the second Thursday, early in the morning I was smiling in my sleep and could feel complete sensation on the left side of my face. When I woke up I was all recovered, I still had to massage my face but now my smile was back I was able to pronounce the words correctly. I am so thankful to Baba for being with me through this ordeal and giving me the strength that I needed at that time. I believe that Baba is with us all the time. Never to let go of faith. Thank you Baba for everything

MRS VIJAYARAGHAVAN, BAHRAIN
"WHY FEAR WHEN I AM HERE", when these words are registered in our heart, it really gives you a ray of hope and confidence. I experienced this. One fine morning in the month of May 2000 I suddenly found an unusual lump in my abdomen area. It was an internal lump but it could be felt outside. There was some pain too. I took an appointment went to physician. They immediately asked me to under go few tests. Another lady doctor was also summoned immediately. After checking me thoroughly they had very grave look in their faces. The doctor told me that it could be a benign one, and nothing could be told until I took a scan . On hearing this, for me and my husband, it looked liked the whole world came to an end. My mouth went completely dry, and I became completely cold. Unfortunately, I could not get an appointment for scan for the next 36 hrs.

We came back home went straight to our altar, and just whispered, "Swami, what may come give us the strength to bear everything." That night both of us had a restless night and could not sleep even a wink. The next day morning we had to behave very normal in front of our children. My husband as usual had to go his office. After he left, that was the first time I broke down in from of swami;s photo and asked him to take care of me. Very soon my close friends came to know of this,and they gave me lot of support . Group healings and prayers were done by them. One of my friend who went deep into meditation, asking for an answer for my problem, got a vision of Shirdi Sai sitting under the Neem Tree. He consoled my friend telling her,"Ask your friend not to worry, I am there to take care of her". My friend was extremely thrilled and she came a piece if cloth which she had brought it from shirdi. The same day I applied vibhuthi in that area, kept that cloth around my stomach. To our surprise my husband and me had a very peaceful sleep. The same night I got a dream in which Shirdi Baba was pouring udhi and it was falling over me like a pyramid.

The next day early morning we went to the doctor for a scan. She did a thorough one and diagnosied that it is a just a muscular tear in that area and the there was a clot .Both me and husband were really overjoyed and moved with tears.

This incidence and the miracle cure of Baba makes us recall the lines in "SAI SACHARITA" Chapter XXV

"Believe Me, Though I pass away, My bones in My tomb will give you hope and confidence. Not only Myself but My tomb would be speaking, moving and communicating with those, who surrender themselves whole hearted to Me. Do not be anxious that I would be absent from you. You will hear My bones speaking and discussing your welfare. But, remember Me always, believe in Me heart and soul, and then, you will be most benifitted"

Post by: Dipika on November 10, 2005, 11:50:30 PM
The more I think of incidents happened in my life with
Baba's Karuna on me, the more I feel like expressing
my feelings to acknowledge Thanks to Baba.
      This happened long long ago,almost 30 years ago
while we were in India. Somehow, I was not kriyakandi
religious at all. But at the same time I had
Shradhdhha in GOD. Many a times we , my sisters and
me, were talking about visiting Shiradi for SaiBaba's
Darshan. Only myself was married and 3 sisters were
yet to get married.
   Days, months and years passed by but our desire
could not get materialized. On one week end we were
together at my mother's place and my youngest sister
proposed an idea of going to Shiradi. Everybody
appreciated the GOOD idea and next day we got ready to
leave for Shiradi.
   Out of nowhere it started raining heavily with
strong wind and thundershowers. Since my 2 sons were
too young at that time, my husband advised us not to
start in such a stormy weather. As we changed our
plan, the sun shown in the Sky and everything was
calm and clear. My youngest sister started dancing
with joy as now we will be able to continue with our
plan for Shiradi.
   Again we all were at the door to step out to start
and whoaaaaaaaa...it started raining with extensive
lightning and strong winds. And Bhoooooooooom! the
tree near  our house was struck by lightening! We
could not believe our eyes. We had never seen
lightning blow like this!
     Now my husband  strongly said "NO" for Shiradi
plan but he suggested another idea. He said, ok, if
the weather calms down we shall go to Sea-shore
"Chawpatty"
(We were in Bombay, staying at Byculla).
     With no further rains, we went to Chawpatty and
enjoyed the evening with my sons, my sisters and my
mother.
    ***********
After a couple of years again there arose an
opportunity . At the marriage event of my younger
sister, after the Kanya Vidaay we all were sitting in
a group and suddenly one of my younger sister said,
why not we ( my two younger sisters, my mother, my 2
sons, my husband and myself) go to Shiradi as we all
were there and we still had some days off and all the
food was there to take with us for the journey. We can
go tomorrow if we all agree.
     This time we started as planned. No rain and no
storm! eheh. We reached Shiradi. Since we had gone
with a last minute decision, the Dharmashaalaa was
FULL as there was some special event at Shiradi, . No
single room was available.
    All the devotees were provided a locker to keep
their valuables in the safe custody. And in a huge
hall we were provided mattresses to sleep and relax.
We were tired of journey and anyway Mandir was closed
till certain time, we decided to go out for a walk in
Bazaar and have a cup of tea. We stopped by a Tea
stall. The owner of the stall was preparing tea with
so much devotion, one should see! He would attend the
tea pot every second watching over it, adding milk,
sugar, tea leaves ginger and cardamom in measured cups
of water and again let the mixture boiling and boiling
till certain colour is reached, he would pour that in
a glasses. There also he had a way of pouring tea. He
would start pouring tea near the edge of the glass but
would start moving his hand holding  the tea container
upward almost upto 2 feet away form the glass and
again bringing it back to glass rim. He was doing this
with so much precision that we decided to have HIS
tea. Since there were many people ahead of us, we sat
on the nearby bench, chitchatting and enjoying the
time.
   Suddenly we saw my youngest sister, who has the
strongest Faith in Saibaba, was shivering like a leaf
on a tree in a windy storm. We were all got concerned.
By that time our tea got ready but no one among us had
peace of mind to relish the tea. We requested to serve
our tea in  foam cups and started walking straight
towards Dharamshaalaa. The organiser at the Desk saw
my shivering sister and tried his best to help us.
Since is was summer they had only mattresses and no
blankets.
We literally covered my sister under the mattresses.
These mattresses are not the mattresses that we have
here in USA. They are rather thin Gaadi made with
stuffed cotton. Well, the organiser felt sympathy for
my sister and he alotted the room as soon as one got
available.
     We thanked him for his generosity. We went to the
room and made my sister lying down comfortably.
   Withing 15 minutes, she was up, cheerful and normal
as if nothing had happened! We all got surprised how
come she is up with no trace of sickness which was
bothering her since last couple of hours!!
     ***********
We had good Darshan at Shiradi mandir. we visited
various places like Dwaraka mai and Dhuni etc.
and returned home without any further problems.
************
    I am still puzzled whether Baba himself played all
these Leelas to show us he is in command of
everything.
Everything happens as he WISHES and HE loves and cares
for us all the time, no matter what!

Pranaams Baba. Be with US all the time and shower your
Blessing on us.
Jai Sai Baba.

A Sai devotee
I wanted to share my experience with the fellow devotees. We went to Shiridi with a lot of struggle. The bus was not good and we were put into other bus. We reached Shirdi by 9:00 Am. My Son had offered his hair to Shree Sai Maharaj. I had given my hair. We had a darshan by 11:15 am. I wanted to go to any aarathi but only Madyahana aarathi was available for as we booked our bus tickets to return the same evening. There were two entrances to enter to Baba's madyahana aarathi. The guard at the entrance told us we need a ticket day in advance to get inside the aarathi hall or we have to go into the regular darshan. The regular darshan line was so huge there was no point of participating Aarathi if we stand in that queue. I was so disjointed and prayed god that somehow let us participate the aarathi. We waited two minutes there only. Two gentle men came to us asked us they are only to attend the aarathi and seven people can go and attend the aarathi and They offered us by saying that If you want, you 3 can join us. I was so happy and I thought that Baba let us in. He only sends those two gentle men to us. I joy was boundless. We accepted for their offer and thanked them many times. They said it's not their will and it 's god's will. We had entered to the aarathi hall with those two gentle men and we had a great darshan as well as we participated in aarathi. We had darshan again by 3 PM and returned the same day. Baba had listen to my prayers. Baba please listen to my and my husband's prayer's also

If we believe in Baba he will definitely solve our problems. I had many experiences in my life. I used to write 'SAI' koti. Till now I wrote 4lakhs. I prayed Baba to bless with a good husband. I got a very nice Hubby. If I get any problem I will first tell Baba. He will take care of everything but, we should believe and if you find any free time keep saying 'OM SAI RAM' in your Hearts. Then u will feel relaxed.

Dear Sai Devotees,

OM SRI SAI RAM, I would like to share my recent experience with Sai Devotees about how Shri Sai pulled my friend from a very  critical health condition.

It was in the month of April 2000, I called my friend’s home in Canada to know that he is in intensive care Unit (for two months) with a massive third Cardiac arrest followed with multiple ailments. Doctors have not given any Hope and are waiting to pass the critical period.  I rushed to their house with Sai’s picture and Udi (sacred ash) in my pocket and praying Baba. I went to hospital with his spouse and two little kids. I silently prayed in the Heart that Sai if you are Here, You must Help to revive the condition of this patient.

I took out the Sai Picture and Udi from my pocket, which was then mailed from one of the ardent Sai devotee in New Jersey, USA I requested the ailing patient’s spouse to place the Sai Picture on his chest and sincerely pray Lord Sai "Please reconcile the condition of my Husband and I shall be ever indebted to you". The lady did prayers and took a pinch of Udi and put it in his mouth. The patient was on intravenous and Oxygen pipes then with closed eyes. I prayed in the heart of mine "O Lord Sai, please shower your richest blessing on this traumatic and depressed family. Reassure your faith and miracles on this patient." Doctors are still waiting for countdown at this hour.  

Trust me, the miracle of Sai happened on the next day, the patient was able to move and open his eyes slightly, which gave everyone a ray of hope for survival. Doctors declared that critical moment is gone now. He should revive in a couple of days. Since then I kept on inquiring about the condition of the patient, One week later I could directly speak to the patient in Hospital over the phone and was glad to hear his Voice once again, "Ravi I am improving now."
 
If BABA had not showered his Blessings, the whole family would have been in distress by now.

Now the patient is at home and living a normal life with slight care and supervision on and off from the specialists. However, those moments are unforgettable for me in the Hospital.

PRAY SAI  THAT RICHEST BLESSINGS BE WITH HIS FAMILY FOREVER AND ALSO SAI DEVOTEES.

I always believed in God, but ever since I started believing in Sai Baba, I feel I have become a much better person. It was 10th September 97, and my father had a massive heart attack. It shook up the entire family. It was Wednesday morning. The very next day, I went to Shirdi Sai Baba temple at Chhatarpur, and went and prayed for my father’s good health. My mother joined me at the temple and both of us prayed to Baba for his good health. After visiting the temple my mother and me went back to the hospital to meet my father and we put the Vibhuti which we got from the temple on my fathers chest, and again prayed to Baba to take care of him. Since that day, my father has been doing well in health and I started going to the Sai Baba temple frequently. In fact I even believe that I have had Baba's Darshan. In October 99, I was going to the Sai Baba temple in Chatterpur and just as I had washed my hands to go inside the temple, I saw a thin man just dressed like Baba in a dhoti staring at me, with that same calm look on his face and a little smile. For a second I could not take my mind off him and kept looking back. As I went inside the temple I just could not concentrate, since I could not believe what I had seen outside, and quickly came outside the temple after doing my prayers inside. I went out and looked at the same place where I had seen that man a few minutes ago but there was nobody there. I asked a few people around if they had seen anybody dressed like
that with that appearance sometime back and they all said no. I told this incident to a lot of my friends and they all do not believe that it was Baba, but till date I have a firm belief that I saw Baba that day and on that account consider myself lucky.
 
I have never been to Shirdi but I would really like to go there and meet Baba. I have a firm faith in Baba and believe that he is watching me all the time in all I do and he has always been with me whenever I needed him.  
 
I used to love going to the Sai Baba temple at Chatterpur in Delhi but I just moved to Washington in march this year and miss going there. Most of the temples in this area do not have Baba’s Murti. I really wish that I can see Baba again very soon.
 
Have faith in him, and he will lead you through.
 
Jai Sai ram.

I was diagnosed with fluid in the right lung- mixing BABA'S Udi (sacred ash) with water and drinking the same every night along with prayer's to BABA by my mother, wife and me cured me from the disease. The further tests envisaged after thirty days with general all-round improvement.
 
Similarly last year when I was down with malaria my platelets count dropped to dangerous levels and prayer to Baba along with his Udi mixed with water restored the count to above normal levels

can never forget SAI BABA who saved my daughter who had lost her walking power due attack of paraplegia (bone TB) in backbone. Doctors at AIIMS New Delhi had declared that she could survive only after operation of the backbone considered to be dangerous with lesser chances of success.

A friend devotee of Sai Baba for many years came to know about my daughters operation and visited my daughter when I had gone home to fetch breakfast for my daughter. He met me at home and informed that he had been to my daughter and gave Sai Bhabuti (sacred ash) brought from Shirdi and also prayed for her recovery. When I went to hospital in the afternoon my daughter was all smiles and laughing as also other patients. After applying Bhabuti she said she felt like pulling her left leg and little after right one. Both the legs started moving after remaining almost dead for 4 months. Doctors came and declared that only God has to cure her and their operation would not be necessary. It became news in their AIIMS and people did come to us for similar blessings. We advised them to pray to SAI Nath and assured them it was HIS Chamatkar (miracle). My daughter was had lost the job due to illness. Gradually she was discharged from AIIMS in a week and brought home where was bed ridden for over two years. And ultimately with blessing of SAI Baba she regained her strength and we had entire family gone to pilgrimage at Shirdi to thank HIM for his blessings and saving a human being. Now that she is married and has two children I remember Sai's blessings and have been to Shirdi for getting his blessings.

JAI SAI NATH.

For my daughter she keeps fast every Thursday goes to Lodhi Road Sai Mandir without fail and is leading a happy life. How can we dare to forget HIM?

In the month of October 1997 I suffered from very serious pain. I was unable to walk properly. I could not walk fast due to severe pain. I used to walk very slowly like an old man at the young age of 27. I consulted top surgeon for my problem, but my problem could not be diagnosed. I could not walk continuously even for a short distance of 200 meters. I had to leave my job in the month of June 1998, as my pain was very severe. I was almost bedridden. Due to this problem I had a lot of tension and all sorts of terrifying thoughts would come to me. I was very much afraid and I did not know what to do. Sometimes I would feel that I may die and would worry very much about my mother who is totally dependent on me.

Ever since my pain started in 1997 I was continuously repeating the name of Sai Baba throughout day and night. As doctor did not have any idea regarding my problem, I tried to find relief for my pain through other sources. I was told that I was suffering from Black Magic. I spent lot of money for curing myself of the black magic, but my pain was always there.

At last, when I visited Shirdi, I decided that from now on I would rely only on my god Sai Baba. I cried in front of Baba's Samadhi and asked for His forgiveness. I drank a bottle full of Baba's Samadhi water and applied it on the area of pain. This was in the year 1999. Today its May 2001 and my pain has reduced by 50%. For the last 3 and a half years I am continuously repeating Sai Baba's name day and night, and this is the reason why I am alive today. I am confident that though it may take more time, Sai Baba will fully cure me.

There are numerous occasions on which Baba answered our prayers. One of those when my nephew as a 5 year old boy was struggling with a hairline fracture in the knee. Doctor told us to admit the boy in Hospital and recommended complete bed rest.  

We took the boy to Baba's temple and applied UDI to the knee. After 2 days we again took the boy to the hospital thinking that the boy would be admitted in hospital. Doctor noticed a great improvement in the knee and the sent us back with few medicines. The boy was normal and healthy soon.

My husband had cancer. While going through treatment, he went into semi-coma. He called me and said, I have seen a triangle in the clouds and many white chadars. After that He started going into deep coma and slurpy speech. All the well wisher who was with me at that time, helped me to pray to Sai Baba and we used to put vibuhiti on his forehead everyday in the morning and evening. The day we were told he is no more, we put bhajans of Sai Baba in his ears the whole evening and the following day. On the third day he opened his eyes and also wrote on a piece of paper. After that he recovered, and finally he told us that he had seen Sai Baba’s hand with Om sign making him turn his route and he is back with us. This is our experience and we believe Sai Baba is with us all the time.

Sai Baba, You are our mother and father, you are our savior. We pray you always remain with us.

I had calcium deposit in my left shoulder. This deposit resulted in a constant pain in the upper part of my shoulder and round the neck. It was very painful when I moved my hand and I had to be careful when I lift my hand, stretch or while holding some items. Initially I ignored this pain for past six months by taking painkillers and applying all kind of balms, by consulting various doctors. Also, doctors confirmed that if the deposit does not liquify then the other option available was a small surgery to remove the particles. This worried me further and I did not want to go to a doctor (as I was a heart patient and undergone an open heart surgery 5 years back). Somehow the pain kept getting worse and my movements were getting more restricted by the day. One evening, I was sitting on a sofa in my house seeing Sai's photo, I sent up a fervent, silent prayer to Sai asking him to cure the pain completely. As I prayed, the usual doubts haunted me -- "What if the pain doesn't go away? Will Sai actually cure it?" etc. I pushed down those doubts, thinking to myself firmly that Sai will cure it if I ask Him. Thinking same, I applied some balm and I slept. Next morning, I could feel the pain receding a bit. Of course, my doubts did not go away even then. I thought, "Maybe the pain won't go away completely". Again, I pushed the thought out and went about my day. At the end of the day, I was surprised to find very little pain and when I thought back, I realized that I had been able to move my shoulder freely through the day. The next day, the pain had gone and I was almost back to normal with absolutely no pain. I was overjoyed. I still cannot believe how incredibly lucky I am to have Sainath listening to me. Koti Pranam Sai Ram!

To my dearest Baba, You are the one who is taking care of me through out my entire life. Right from fifth standard to 10th standard, to college, to a job in India, to a job in US - everything is by your grace. I cannot imagine anything in life without you. In childhood, you made me realize my mistakes, made me to correct them, gave interest to study and made me to get third rank in fifth standard. You are the one who made me to get school first in 10th, you made me to get good marks in 12th. You ended up giving me admission in a good college. In the final year, you gave a good job. I was not planning to write written exam at all. You made me write the exam and somehow passed it. As you know, I was so nervous to attend the interview, you were with me through out the interview and got the job. All in just a week's time, even without an interview you got a job for me in US. When I was traveling to US all alone, in the flight I cried to you, as I felt alone. Next to my seat was sitting a Sai devotee and she spoke to me nicely and comforted as she started talking about Baba. I have no words to thank for all the things happened in my life. Thanks you so much Baba. I really do not know if I am worth for all these things. It all happened by your grace. I wanted to marry a Sai devotee. By your grace, I got a good husband who is also your devotee. You are my father and you are the one guiding me in all my deeds, please be with me always and help me Baba.

I had many experiences about Baba. But, this is the very recent experience I had. My husband was trying for jobs all over and he got two call letters. He attended the interview for one job and felt it would be good if he had the job. He was confident in getting the position, but he was doubtful whether they would pay him according to his expectations. I prayed to baba, that he gets the job with the desired salary; I would complete Satcharitha in one week. Believe or not, The HR called him yesterday and gave a job offer. The offer contained the exact salary he was going to ask. We were little selfish and he asked a little higher pay then that. The HR told he would consult other members and call him back. But, he realized again and agreed the job on the previous pay. But, I am still worried whether he could manage things without me as I am doing my MS here and he was suffering from the past with very bad back ache. I have belief that everything would be under control with Baba's krupa.

Baba made me realized that what I did was wrong, while I was in India he made me think what I really want in my life. When I was not interested in the job I was doing then why was I pushing myself to do that. Baba showed me a path. I stayed in India for four months did some computer courses. I came to USA and applied H1 visa.

Since I was in India for more than four months, there were many chances for my visa not being approved. I sent all my documents to my employer and he said he filed my H1 for Premium processing. This usually takes fifteen days for approval. On the 15th day I was checking online status, it showed my application is received on August 8th and it would take 120 days for them to process it. I was shocked since first of all my employer lied to me that he filed through premium processing and he also lied that he submitted by application on August 4th. On August 10th the H1 visa quota was over and I was so lucky. If he would have delayed one more day, I should have gone back to India. On that day, I felt so bad and was crying. I spoke to employer and asked him to change my application to premium processing. Initially he did not agree but later he said he would fill it on Wednesday. I prayed to Baba, Baba knew that if I did not get my H1 visa as soon as possible I will be out of status and would have to leave the country in next 15 days. On Wednesday morning for some reason, I checked my status again. To my surprise it showed my case has been approved. My happiness knew no bounds. Everybody was amazed. This happened under normal processing. I have seen my friends who have applied in May under normal processing and have not heard anything till mid August. Baba showed his grace, I got my approval within 15 days from the receipt day. Baba is great.

This is just one of the several miracles. Recently my brother met with an accident, it was a very bad accident. Baba came in my dream the night before where my mom and I were crying, due to some reason related to my brother. Then I was thinking that I should do Sai pooja, Baba appeared in front on me and I woke up. This way Baba suggested that He is there to save my family. Baba saved my brother from the accident, no big injurious. If anybody has seen the car, then they would think that people inside would have been dead. But Baba saved him and his family.

My request to all Sai devotees, never lose your faith on Baba. He knows what is good for us. Keep patience and He will shower his grace on you. Love Baba like your father, mother, daughter, son, in all the ways you can. It is true that if you take one step towards Baba, he will take 10 steps towards you. So please have faith and devotion. Baba is my father and everything. Om Sai Ram.

Deewali gift

I would like to share my experience with all Sai devotees how Sri Sai came to my home on Deewali day. We experienced His leelas in our family many times and whenever we are facing difficulties, He had helped us in different ways. I am very thankful to Him throughout my life. I am still facing a lot of health problems and personal problems from long time and waiting for His blessings with Shradda and Saboori. I trust Him more than anything in the world. I was not feeling well since three day before Deewali and felt very sad that I would not be able to celebrate Deewali as usual. I did puja with fruits and milk and went to the doctor and then from there went directly to my work place to give the doctor's note for sick leave. After that I went to buy some sweets from a known old lady, who usually sells homemade Deewali sweets. As soon as I entered into her home she took me to the puja room and asked me "Do you need Saibaba calendar?", and without waiting for my answer she grabbed the Sai calendar from a bunch of other Gods, gave it to me as if I had ordered before. It all happened with 2 or 3 minutes. There was no explanation for my happiness. I was very happy. It took me a while to come back to normal status. I thought in my mind, this is the greatest Deewali in my life which I will remember for ever. I came home, took rest for a while and prepared some prasad, did puja in the evening and I hung the Sai calendar in my dining room. This is the way my Sai consoled me when I was unhealthy. It is my message to all Sai devotees, if you have complete faith on Him, He will always be with us to share our good and bad times. Thank you Sai for your blessings.

My Pranams to the Lotus feet of Baba. I said that if my husband gets a government job, which he was trying for several months, that I would write my article. He prayed to Baba before going to the interview and broke the coconut. When he was driving he left as though Baba was with him all the time as when ever he is closing his eyes and opening he could see only Baba's picture. His interview went very well and just yesterday he got a call from the people saying that he got the job. This all happened because of Baba's grace and I thank Baba for making my husband's dream come true.

I have lot of experiences in my life where Baba helped me a lot. He is always with me with my family and everyone .I came to know about Baba in 1992 when I took admission in Engineering College in Kopargaon. Still remember those days, Being close to Shirdi I was the luckiest person. After completing my Engineering, got a Job in Tat InfoTech, Delhi with Baba's grace. On 3 Feb 2000, I was going to home in my motorbike. Suddenly while driving, I lost my senses and my motorbike hit the electric pillar .I fell down on pedestrian walk and found that my leg was broken in two pieces. I was not in position to call any one for help. Suddenly a man got down from bus and he put my head on his Lap, and arranged first aid medicines. Being an accidental case no one was ready to take me to the hospital. He called my landlord and they took me to nearby hospital. Then he disappear and I didn't see him again. He was in the form of Baba who helped me. My leg was operated and I was on complete bed rest for 5 months. That was worst period of my life, being a professional kept on thinking about my career all the time and most of people were saying that I would not be able to walk properly throughout my life. Even doctor said that they did their work now it's GOD who has to do his job. I was kept on praying, remembering Baba all the time. Taking udi.

After seven months of my accident, I was walking like a normal person. At the end of 8th month, I was in US. It was big surprise for me. During my worst period I never cursed God for all that happened to me but Kept on praying Baba and have faith on Him. As of today whatever I am, its only Baba's grace. He is always with me, with my family and everyone. I want to convey to all SAI devotees that they must read "Shri Sai Satcharitra" at least once in their life or as frequently as they can, which will end up their worries and show them true path. Ton Of thanks to Baba.

Sudha
Sairam to all! Early in the morning, last Thursday, I had BABA's darshan and BABA looked very beautiful. I wish to share it with all devotees. I don't know which place it was, it must be Shirdi. There was an old room with just four walls and no roof. The walls were all black in color with smoke. I had been walking across the street, saw this masjid like room many times, but did not want to go inside thinking that it is the place/pooja mandir where only Muslims go. I just look at that room/Mandir everyday whenever I go across that street, but never liked to go and see what and who is there inside, but I see many people going in and coming out all the time, but I did never see a Hindu entering/leaving that room. One evening, it was almost dark and I thought I would go and see who is there inside and what people are doing in there. I left my slippers outside and entered the room and to my surprise, I saw many Hindus along with Muslims. I saw a Hindu girl and sat with her in the last but one row. There are people singing Telugu Sai bhajans. I was happy and started singing with them. The walls inside the room were very dirty with the smoke but there is no roof. The weather was so pleasant- not hot, not cold, but was pleasant and peaceful. I walked to the right hand corner, there I saw "Dhuni" which was in a square Agnihotram type construction.

Then I saw a rock in the front side and there I saw an old man with full white clothes and looked like SAI BABA. I was surprised and was thinking in my mind "How come this old man is looking like exact SAI BABA. I was looking at HIM for so long time and slowly started realizing that it was BABA only." It was so surprising that when all the walls are full with smoke, why is BABA so fresh, with white dress and a smile. I went forward three steps, and BABA came towards me three steps. I was looking at HIM with a smile and surprise. BABA said something which I could not recollect. BABA talked to me for few minutes and I was very happy, sat with the other devotees for some more time and went back home thinking "Oh... It is BABA who is staying in there. How could not I go and see him all these days because I go to that street 4-5 times everyday". With these thoughts, I got up suddenly and it took few minutes for me to come out of dream (BABA'S DARSHAN). This was the first time I saw BABA so clearly, Baba spoke to me. I cannot express how happy I am to share this wonderful SAI Darshan with all the devotees across the world.

After 2 years of waiting, 3 weeks back, I got a job and it was really a miracle. I know Baba is still testing my patience in this and I will never loose it. I am sure Baba will help and take care of the other things and will give me this job because I have to help in bringing good future to few people with this job. BABA blessings us ALL.

(Originally posted on Thursday, Dec 3, 1998)


This is my personal experience I am sharing with you all. Beginning of this year i.e., Jan 98, my mother had fever. Even after five days, fever did not subside. She was on antibiotics but they did not help her much. On the seventh day, I felt she was getting weaker and I took her to the hospital, thinking that she could be given some glucose/drips. They told me to admit her. She was weak but could walk. Before admission, she had all the routine tests, like blood, urine, etc and the chest X-rays etc. There was no evidence of any infection. It was diagnosed to be viral fever. But the next day, when I went to visit her in the hospital, the Doctor told me that she had acute renal failure, lung failure, a multi organ failure the words he used "Only her brain seems to work". I am not one of the ardent devotees of Baba like the ones I see on this site. But I prayed hard to BABA. I cried to Him begging Him to save my mother. The next day was a New Moon Day, and most of friends told me that the situation normally deteriorates on this day, so told me to accept whatever came. I prayed very hard. It may sound silly. However, I poured my heart to BABA in paper and placed it in front of him in our Puja room. At that time one of Baba devotees called me and told me that Baba would definitely help and he would show some sign. I was hopeful but at the same time feeling very depressed, took my car out. Hardly I drove about 100 yards from my house when I saw a long Black Cobra. My heart was beating so fast in disbelief, but what I saw was true. Baba told me that He has taken over my problems. My mother did improve though slowly. Anyone who saw her in the Emergency would not believe that she came out. Till date, I feel it is only BABA who saved her. It is really true that He hears you when you call.

Lakshmi Viswanath
In the SAI SATCHARITHA book, there is a chapter about fasting. SAI BABA never liked any of his children to fast and this was proved in my case also.

In 1998, my parents visited me in end of March. I was in Denver at that time. In April, I had to go to Chicago for training. As I had many friends there, I took my parents with me. We stayed with two of my best friends there in Chicago. During the day, I used to go for my training and in the evening, my friends and I used to go out with my parents. One evening when we had been to the famous Devon Avenue in Chicago that is famous for all the Indian shops, we saw the flyer about some Aarathis and Bhajans being conducted in a newly built SAI temple in the suburbs of Chicago. We all wanted to go for it. My two friends whom we stayed with are also SAI devotees. Therefore, that Thursday, after coming from work, we all left for the temple. It was about 30-40 minutes drive from the place where we stayed. I had the directions with me and was driving. The temple was supposed to be open only until 8:30 p.m. It was already 8:15 p.m. and I was still driving and trying to find out where the temple is, as I could not find the street where this temple was situated. I felt very bad. My parents and friends were very anxious to reach the temple before 8:30 p.m. I felt that I would be disappointing everyone if I were not going to locate the temple before 8:30 p.m. I told my parents and my friends that in case if they were not able to have SAI darshan that day because of me, I would not eat dinner as a punishment. I made this statement around 8:25 p.m. Well, SAI had something else for me. Within couple of minutes, I was able to locate the street. Some of the roads in Chicago have two names one for each direction. I had not seen the name because of this. The way to the temple was dark and there was no signboard or light. We somehow managed to go to the temple. It was already past 8:30 p.m. and I prayed SAI that the temple should be open. A few other families were also entering the temple before us. I was a bit relieved that the temple was still open. When we went inside the temple, to our great surprise, the Arati had not begun yet. So we got the opportunity to attend the Arati session of BABA. After the Arathi was over, we were about to leave, when one person from the temple came and told us that we have to stay back for Dinner as they were serving dinner for all the devotees who have come. I was taken by surprise. My dad told me, "You told us that you are going to punish yourself by not eating. But BABA has planned a grand dinner for you!" I really felt that BABA had come in the form of this person and invited us for having dinner. The dinner was a full course dinner with all kinds of rice, sweets, and pickle. I was reminded of the chapter in Baba's Satcharita where Baba made one Mrs. Ghokhale, who had made up her mind to fast for three days, eat Puran-Polis. I thanked BABA with all my heart for being so kind to me and prayed to BABA to always shower his ever kind glances and love on us and show us the right path to lead our lives.

Being a follower of Sai for the last 13 years, I have been seeing several miracles of Baba in my family. Since1999 due to some unavoidable family problems I could not spend enough time for pooja and rarely read Sai Satcharithra. But I keep two Riyals (Qatar currency) in front of Baba, seeking Nishta and Saburi. I habituated to offering my food first to Baba before eating. On 1st May 2003 night I had a dream, I am standing in front of a Baba's golden yellow colored statue, I noticed that his body starts moving from leg, slowly Baba statue changed as live Baba. Immediately I took the opportunity and start feeding him with rice, after eating second time he advised me in a single sentence about a discussion which I had with my wife on 30 April 2003 about belief. He is within us. Om Sri Samartha Sadguru Sai nath maharaj ki Jai.

A Sai devotee
I am a student at Iowa State University. We usually pay off our tuition at the beginning of the semester. But given my family's financial condition at present, I end up giving my fees at the end of the semester. It was only at the end of last semester that I called my parents to send over a draft for $7000, a huge sum. If I failed to pay this amount, I wouldn't be allowed to continue the semester and would have to fly back to India or join a community college (with no courses I can really take), this being University policy. Our bank mailed the draft by UPS in a couple of days and I expected the draft to be here 20 days before the payment deadline. But something prevented it from reaching at this anticipated date, and I was growing impatient. One fine day, a week before the payment deadline, I find a UPS memo stuck to my apartment door that mentions an attempted delivery of a package (my draft); but since I was away, they would try 2 more times to deliver it.

What can I say? I decided to wait for them the days they didn't come! And when I went to the office, a lady informed me that certain packages are held only for 5 days, and that my package was sent back just an hour ago. Questions as to whether the truck could be contacted were answered in the negative. You may well imagine my disposition at that point in time. I felt guilty for not being responsible enough to pursue the end of getting my draft somehow and waiting until the weekend for this. Above all, I felt scared as to my fate. My roommates emanate nothing but genuine friendship. They are the friends people should pray for. But $7000 was something beyond what they could manage. I thought of asking many people, including my aunt, but this was not a paltry sum. What was the guarantee? Did they know my parents? (save my aunt, but that's a different story!) What if I ran away? Sad, but genuine doubts nevertheless. I realized why the Sufis abhorred money and praised love to be the true wealth.

All my resources exhausted, I sat in front of my table and an uneasy calm spread over my poor soul. Not anger at myself for a minor indiscretion that would lead to something catastrophic; not a fear of what the magnitude of this catastrophe was to be. It was a calm. It was Sunday, and I had to pay my tuition on Monday. And I had a two-digit figure in my bank account. On my table is a medium sized statue of Sai Baba. My glance landed on his face and I discerned a benign smile, fit to adorn the face of a king. I lie not. It was a novel experience. The words "you just wait and watch!" seemed to descend on me like an epiphany, out of nowhere. I was bathed in an ethereal calm. While I sat there, looking at the statue with an expressionless face, it suddenly occurred to me that I should ask this acquaintance if she could help me. What was the worst that could happen? She'd say "no".

A word about her: we absolutely DO NOT get along. She was the type who wouldn't give me a ride in heavy rain if she drove by. Slandering people incessantly was a part of her person, and I never liked this. Besides, I hadn't spoken to her in a month. She was the last person I would ask for help. So this was the unlikely person I went to. I told her about my problem, and a face that showed a venomous distaste in even saying "Hi!" was now all concerned. She asked me what went wrong and how much I wanted, and I told her. To my disbelief, she said "okay" and cut me a check for $7000. This from a person, who would treat everyone else in a group to coffee, except me! I cashed it, and am glad to say that I'm still in this country!

Of the few "miracles" Baba has done for me in the 19 years I've walked this planet (those I know of, that is), this I consider the most supreme. I found it hard to explain to my anxious parents about this sudden change in events, my mother sending up prayer after prayer, and my dad calling all the banks and asking anyone he could (although he knew he couldn't get any sum to me in a day).

All I have to say is, that our Baba doesn't let go. Never. Faith and patience and a resignation to his will and grace will get us into and out of any situation in life. I believe it was he who gave me the thought of asking this acquaintance and helped me out through her. Just at a point when my meditations and prayers and readings were gradually being forgotten by me, he sets up a hapless situation and, with my poor soul as a pawn, solves it, and reminds me of him and blesses me. A fakir and $7000. What a beautiful lesson! How lucky we all are to worship this saint! Peace and joy to all!

Title: Re: DWARKAMAI's MIRACLES.(She is our Mother)
Post by: Dipika on December 09, 2005, 02:51:42 AM
Bhagawan Ramana Maharshi said that contact with one's Sadguru continues even after his physical death. The phenomenal spread of devotion to Sai Baba in this country today is chiefly the work of his tomb which -moves' and -speaks' with his devotees.
Mr. EM. Bhangara is a devout Parsi who imbibed, high regard for saints. But his wife was orthodox and had no such faith. In 1956 he kept a calendar with Sai Baba's picture on it in their bed room, but he neither knew nor paid any respect to the saint. One day, at 6 a.m. he was impelled to bow to Baba and was surprised at his own act for he knew nothing of Baba. I-le did not mention it to his wife for fear of raising an argument about it.

Next morning he noticed that the calendar was garlanded and asked his wife about it. She said that when she was cleaning the pictures in the house, she heard a mysterious voice from the picture, "Child, garland me regularly; it will do you good" twice and she obeyed it. A friend heard of their experience and suggested to keep the picture in their shrine on a Thursday. He did so and his wife used to garland it everyday.

One day the mysterious voice asked her what she wanted. She sought the welfare of her husband and the birth of a son. Within a week, of his own accord, the superior officer recommended a rise in Mr. Bhangara's salary. In June 1957 they were blessed with a son.

Solution to all their problems used to flash in their minds when they prayed to Baba and even the most trivial wishes were fulfilled. Many got their problems resolved through Mr. Bhangara. Yet he sometimes wondered whether the messages were his own fancies.

One day Mr. Bhangara had to go on an official camp. His wife insisted that he should return by evening. When he bowed to Baba the voice said, "Son, you can't return today." To test whether it was a message from Baba, he started at 730 a.m. When the car had to stop at a level-crossing, a gentleman got down from a state transport bus and got into Bhangara's car saying that he was in a hurry to reach his destination sooner. N"ile travelling on a ghat road, the car took a turn and the breaks failed completely. The car was racing down the slope with increasing speed. There was a deep valley on one side and a hill on the othen The driver told them not to get panicky and that he would try to dash the car against the hill in the safest possible manner. But whenever he tried to do so some vehicle or the other came up that side and they narrowly missed a collision. Bhangara recollected Baba's message and felt that it signified his imminent death. Being a palmist Bhangara remembered that his hand indicated sudden death at that time. He desperately prayed. "Baba, I know that I have to die some day. Yet atleast for the sake of my family you have to save my life this time. I shall not henceforth doubt your messages."

One of the tyres of the car hit a stone on the road and stopped. The driver changed the tyre and they reached their destination in seven hours. There was no chance for Bhangara to return home that evening!

Mr. Chitnis was at first fascinated by a beautiful picture of Baba and read several books on him. He visited Shirdi in 1952 and felt that he had returned to his own place. The very first sight of Baba's Samadhi had impressed him for good.

In 1957, his sister at Bombay was seriously ill and the family wished to start by plane. His parents could secure a seat by the next plane but his name was kept in the waiting list. Mr. Chitnis sat there silently praying to Baba that by the time they reach Bombay his sister should recover her health. He suddenly found an old fakir standing by. The latter looked sad and gestured accordingly. The next moment the fakir was not to be seen! It suddenly occurred to him that the fakir was Sai Baba himself He was surprised to learn that none else saw the fakir. At last when Mr. Chitnis reached Bombay his sister was no more.

In 1965 Mr. Chitnis suffered from a severe pain in the stomach and could not take even a spoonful of water. The doctor decided to try surgery on the next Thursday. Chitnis prayed that he should be spared the ordeal. That night in his dream four terrible persons were pulling him out of the bed. Sai Baba felled some of them and saved Chitnis. By morning Sri Chitnis was alright to the surprise of the doctor.

On a certain Thursday in 1966 he completed a reading of the life of Baba. Mr. Chitnis was to go to Agra by car. He prayed to Baba for his darshan. Next morning, after covering about sixty miles the car stopped at a place for no apparent reason. A fakir who resembled Sai Baba was found standing by. The fakir blessed them and received dakshina and disappeared. Mr. Chitnis was surprised to know later that only his youngest son, he and the driver saw che fakir and others didn't see anyone.

Sri P.V Satyanarayana Sastri records, in an article, the strange transformation of a famous atheist of Andhra into an ardent devotee of Baba. Late Sri Gopichand, a famous writer and a prominent atheist was working as an employee of the Government at Kurnool. His wife was in the hospital, suffering from labour pains for three days and her condition was critical. On the third day, as he walked past the Sai Mandir towards hospital, he thought : "Baba, if you could bless my wife with a safe delivery, I shall believe that your power is divine."

At the hospital his wife delivered a male child. She told him that an old fakir in a vision, sat on her cot and said, "Don't fear. I shall save you." He then put a little vibhuti on her forehead, put a little of it in water and gave her to drink. She at once delivered. And the time of her vision coincided precisely with the time of his silent prayer to Baba! Gopichand named his son as Sai Baba, causing quite a stir among his atheist friends.

Though Mr. Veerendra Pandya had no faith in Baba, he visited Shirdi with his brother. Later he lived at Kalyan near Bombay and his parents lived in Behar. Once when his family had to face many difficulties, he took out the picture of Baba which was lying in his trunk, kept it in the shrine and prayed fervently that he should find a solution to his problem by evening. At once peace descended on him and by evening he hit upon a solution to his problem. Strangely, he learned from a letter that the same solution occurred to his mother too, precisely at the same hour. He decided to dedicate all his life, henceforth to the service of Baba, giving up all worldly activity but his mother insisted that he should marry. Again he prayed for a written solution to the problem. Next day, quite casually, his eyes fell on a book entitled, Sri Sai Baba Upasana. He opened it at random and the chapter Bhavasudha came up. The message contained therein was that a householder's life is preferable. Yet he doubted whether it was mere coincidence.

At that time he was residing at Vitarna, a forest area infested by robbers disguised as sadhus. So he instructed his watchman not to permit even 'Sadhus' to enter his gate. With these facts in mind, he one day prayed. "Baba, in order that my faith in you could get strengthened, tomorrow, a thursday which is sacred to you, at lunch time a sadhu should come, bless me by keeping his right hand on my head and make passes with the same all over my body. If this is granted, I vow to visit Shirdi."

Next day at lunch time no sadhu turned up. just as Pandya was about to partake of the first morsel, a sadhu called for food. When Pandya offered him food, the former received the same and put his right hand on Pandya's head by way of blessing and left. Pandya recognised that only a part of his wish was fulfilled and that he did not receive the sadhu in a proper manner. While he was thinking the sadhu returned. Pandya offered him Rs. 2/- as daksliina. The fakir passed his hand all over Pandya's body, smiled sportively and went away. Next Thursday Pandya fulfilled his vow.

Miss Marva L. Hemphill wrote of her striking experience with Baba in. a short letter to the author of this present book:
Atlanta Ga, (U.S.A.)
January 18,1970.
Dear Brother in God,
Baba came on 1-12-70! He has been teaching me very rapidly about Christ ever since... it is so wonderful! From now on he is 'Baba Christ,' as jesus is jesus Christ.
Yours,
In the name of Baba Christ
Marva.

In 1955, Sri jayaram Raje was a lawyer at Thana. Once he finished a devotional reading of the Life of Sai Baba. On the next day, Thursday, he offered sweetmeats to Baba's picture. Precisely at lunch time a fakir came to him for food. He was dressed like a muslim. Raje being an orthodox Brahmin offered him food in a leafplate and requested him to eat it elsewhere. The fakir insisted that he would eat it there itself. Raje fed him accordingly, considering him as Baba himself.

After lunch the fakir demanded dakshina. Raje said that if a client paid him Rs. 501- he would have given him his due. The fakir said that the client would pay him the dues at 3.15 p.m. that day and that he himself would turn up at 5 p.m. to receive the dakshina. The client who lived far away did turn up at 3.15 p.m. and cleared the dues. The fakir too came up at 5 p.m. and received Rs. 10/-. In return the latter offered Raje a little vibhuti which, by the time it fell into his hand, got mysteriously transformed into a rose.

Raje looked up in surprise and the fakir was not to be seen anywhere!
Sivashankar Dixit, a devotee of Lord Dattatreya, despaired when he knew that he was suffering from tuberculosis. One day he had a dream, he saw a picture of a muslim saint and bowed to it; at the same moment, a muslim fakir came and applied vibhuti on his forehead and assured him that he would soon be well.

When his condition improved without any treatment Dixit realized that it was a visitation. One of his friends suggested that the fakir might be Sai Baba himself. Four days after, a group of children who played there, left a small picture of Baba's Samadhi in his house. Dixit found that the fakir of his dream precisely resembled the photograph of Sai Baba on the samadhi, found in that picture. Later he visited Shirdi an saw that there was the marble statue on Baba's samadhi and not a photograph of Sai Baba. On enquiry he was told that till 1956 a photograph of Sai Baba was indeed kept on Baba's samadhi and that the statue was installed only in that year. The picture of the muslim fakir which he saw in his dream was indeed the photograph of Baba which was eaxlier kept on the samadhi! Henceforth Dixit worshipped Sai Baba as Lord Dattatreya.

Mr. K.D. Matrey once visited Shirdi. The samadhi mandir was under repair. His child who was two and a half year old stood on the first floor, looking at children playing on the road below. Suddenly she leaned forward, slipped and fell down from the terrace. Several devotees rushed to her but the child stood up smiling and said, "As I fell down, the old man in that picture leaped up, held me in his hands and kept me down"!

An advocate from Boribandar, once started for Shirdi with Rs. 100/- in his pocket. Unfortunately (or fortunately?) his pocket was picked and he had lost the money and his railway ticket. Later the ticket examiner came up and did not relent even after hearing about- the theft. just then an old gentleman gave the lawyer 'a ticket and said that his man did not join him as promised. He introduced himself as a devotee of Sai Baba and bore all the expenses of the advocate. At Shirdi the old man presented him with a copy of a book on Sai Baba and also gave him his address in Bombay. Later on, opening the book the advocate found Rs. 100/- in it. When he returned home he found his purse before Baba's picture in his family shrine! He soon went to Bombay but the old man's address could not be traced. The advocate kept the money he found in the book in his shrine for worship. Thereafter his financial condition improved considerably.

In 1930 Dr. Rustomji was laid up with pneumonia and was admitted in the Parsi General Hospital in Bombay. the doctors gave up hope and he was in a coma. A fakir appeared to him in a vision and said, "Let your health recover first later you will come to know me!" He then went round Rustomji's cot and disappeared. Soon after, the doctors were surprised to find that his condition was quite normal. Ever since, Rustomji yearned to see the fakir. After six months a passenger who sat next to him in the bus was reading a book on Sai Baba. Rustomji saw Baba's picture in it and realized that he was the fakir that had saved him and started reading about Sai. Shortly he was appointed as a doctor in the Sai Samastan Dispensary at Shirdi in 1949.

Once his wife suffered from severe pain in her eyes. Doctors examined her and declared that even doctors abroad will not be able to help her. At last Sri Rustomji brought her to Shirdi and every day he used to take her round Baba's samadhi. She vowed to offer an embroidered cloth to Baba's Palanquin if she was cured. In the course of an year she was well and she fulfilled her vow.

Abhay Pathania
I am sai devotee. I would love to share this very unusual experience with all of you which just happened 1 hour ago. before this I would like to tell you something about my recent past - I have been under going a lot of trouble regarding my career and my personal life. Its been more than 2 years now. I was thinking for a reason for this , and thought that i havent been conducting myself properly . I developed ego and had become a little selfish. I started believeing in baba since october 2000 . During these later months I developed a lot of faith in Sai Baba too. For some reason I promised Baba that I will never do wrong to other people and will not have any ego and try to do most of what he has taught( have patience and faith). He has helped me so much in these few months. My state of mind changed radically. Some one from inside me forced me not to associate myelf with "I" ( ego ) and do good to others no matter what. To have "patience" and "faith". I didn't do idol worshiping or listen to kirtans as such, but its just that I have a Sai photo and His life history book. I have been reading about His life history and of course been reading it on the web site too. Just a week ago started to listen to his kirtans available on the web site.(sai darshan)

I spend a lot of time talking to him and trying to ask him a few questions and get answeres through his facial expressions. Its become my habit. I look at him in the photo and sometimes see him smiling. If he is smiling that day something that I want happens to me, and if not, He warns me of something. Well, this might sound absurd but its absolutely true. Slowly my faith in Him increased and I spent a lot of my time talking to His photo and guessing maybe 3-4 hours togeather.

Today something absolutley out of the world happened to me. I was as usual talking to him listining to some of my favourite songs, reading his life history book and then listining to kirtans at random. This continued for 6-7 hours since 9.30 pm yesterday( 23rd march 2001).

It was around 3.45 am in the morning today(24th march 2001) and I was staring at his photo. I will try to do my level best to describe what happened. I experienced his presence.

Suddenly he started to glow and smile in his photo and radiate heat. I mean I could not believe myself. The feeling of ecstacy. So much happiness that I burst into tears. I started to shiver and said I cant believe this... this cant be ture...O my god!!! i must have said this 3 times and closed my eyes!!! Well it lasted for probably 10 sec.. but they are one of the best 10 seconds of my life..

I can tell u I wasn't dreaming and was wide awake . I feel so good and different. Its like all my pain disappeared in one moment... of my life.. I hope this message do good to all. I think having complete faith in Sai is very important. Believe me He is very much there!!!

Baba's Blessings

Often it has been the experience of devotees that Baba creates storms and
then controls them. Why so ?. Perhaps it may be, each time, an act of
testing the depth of devotion of a devotee. For this matter, philosophy of
any religion is an endless story of such instances. Every religion is
confined to a community. But Baba's religion embraces entire humanity, nay,
even the universe.

Coming to the point as to how Baba created a storm and then controlled it,
I try to pen a few lines describing the instances hereunder.

In the last quarter of 1974, my wife, who had been hale and hearty started
suffering from menopause. I got her treated by the best available
specialists in Allopathy & Homeopathy. But it was all in vain. After
treatment for about four months one specialist lady doctor advised her to
undergo a minor operation. This minor operation led to a disclosure of a
serious ailment. Then for confirmation of that ailment several medical tests
were advised to be got conducted. On the basis of these reports, the
suspected hazardous ailment was confirmed. The lady Surgeon, who had been
very kind, cordial and sympathetic, because of my daughter also being a
doctor, who is closely known to her, had been taking every possible care.
She referred my wife to the concerned specialist, who is known for his high
efficiency and unquestionable integrity. The Doctor went through the medical
reports and a detailed note given by the lady Surgeon. Though he did not
give tongue to his readings, his countenance did give vent to his reaction.
At last, he prescribed a course of treatment to be continued for five weeks.
Out of my anxiety, I ascertained about prospective response. He said that he
would try his best. Such a serious expression with a perceptible note of
uncertainty had acted like adding fuel to the fire. The Doctor, who is
highly qualified, is a strong believer in God, the Almighty, Munificent and
Merciful. He sounded me an obvious advice to believe in God, as a last
resort.

With the expiry of five weeks, the course of the prescribed treatment was
over. The Doctor advised me to get her to the hospital after a month for a
check up. Even after the course was over the Doctor was not hopeful of
fruitful results.

While giving such treatment all the time, I have been relying on the use of
sacred " Udi " to her forehead. She used to take for some time a pinch of "
Udi " with a little water. After the expiry of one month, when I had taken
her to the hospital for a check up by the Doctor, who, after having examined
her, felt astonished to notice the unexpected improvement in her. He
surprisingly enquired if I administered any other medicines than what he
prescribed. Evidently my reply was in the negative from technical view
point. But at the heart of my heart, I confessed before the mental image of
Baba about the most miraculous effect of * Udi * which is known to all the
devotees of Baba, as the most efficacious medicine of all medicines. The
Doctor, though reputed for his eminence, had no ego and in his frankness he
admitted that the Almighty saved her. My faith in Baba deepened further.
Devotion of my wife towards Baba knew no bounds. She maintains normal health
with the kind blessings of Baba.

I am a great believer of Sai, but my wife is not. But an incident changed my wife's views and thoughts. On 1st December, 2005 my Boss told me that his wife with some of their guests would be going to Shirdi. In the evening, I told this to my wife. After this, I went to take a bath. While taking a bath suddenly it struck me that, I should also pay a visit to Shirdi. While having dinner, I told my wife that we all should go to Shirdi on my birthday i.e. 18th December. To my utter surprise, my wife told me that while cooking food she also had the same thought that we all should go to Shirdi, on my birthday. But she was little apprehensive in telling this to me, as we had just come back from leave and if she told me to take leave again I might get annoyed. While cooking the food, she took the name of Sai Baba and said she would believe in Him if we visit to Shirdi on my birthday could be made possible and luck could have it, I was the person who said lets go to Shirdi. " Sai Baba is Great". We have planned to visit Shirdi on 18th December 2005.

I run a business and am always beset with problems and stress, to the extent that my doctor has told me I have some actual brain damage from constant stress over many years. The other day, I had a fellow from an ebay company over to pick up a piece of equipment I wished to sell. He asked me for the manual for this machine, as he wanted to tell any interested parties that it was available.

"I know exactly where it is," I said. I knew I had left it on the desk in my office, which is up three flights of stairs. Up I ran, but it was not there! I went up and down stairs several times looking for it and got all confused and tired and my legs hurt, as I am not as young as I used to be. The ebay guy was waiting patiently in the basement. Finally, on about the third trip up to the office, I put my head down on my desk in exhaustion and prayed, "Baba, please help me find this stupid manual." I looked around again, but still did not find anything, so I gave up and went downstairs to the living room.

We have a glassed-in porch on our house and hanging outside the windows are several bird feeders. One of these feeders was empty and a chicadee had crawled under a glass partition and was trapped inside. With a sigh, I went over to the window, moved a bunch of plants, opened the window and let the little bird out. I turned around to open the big barrel of sunflower seeds, and there on the table was the manual I had looked for so hard.

This little incident made me very happy. It reminded me of the story where Baba said he draws his devotees to Him like little birds with a string around its foot. Perhaps He is active in my big problems, too. I feel, somehow that the karma is more problematic than finding a lost object, and it takes longer.

(Originally posted on Wednesday, June 23, 1999)
Sai Ram. I would like to share my experience that how Sai Ram helped me instantly. I am working for a German Company as a Secretary. I was expecting six visitors from Germany for a conference in Abu Dhabi. Accordingly, I had applied for six visas through our agent. After 4 days, the secretary from Personnel Department. came with the original visas and asked me to acknowledge. As a matter of trust, I received it and she left. The sponsor's office is just opposite to our office. Later when I checked I found only five visas, whereas I had acknowledged for six visas. I got the shock of my life. I ran to the Sponsor's Secretary, showed all the visas, and told her that I didn't receive one visa. She told me directly that I had acknowledged it and hat's it. I explained to her very well you could see only you gave me five Visas, I double checked it might be sticking to one another, but all in vain. I gave the secretary the name of the person whose visa I didn't receive and came back to my office. It was already late in the evening, I kept these five visas in the safe, locked it up and then left for home. I was totally worried about that particular visa. Next day the moment I came to the office, called that secretary, and asked if she found the visa, she said no. Then, I cam back to my office, started my routine, first thing after coming to the office, I Have a diary in which I write "Om Sai Ram", that day also I was writing Sai Ram and praying that I should get the visa, immediately I got a voice coming saying open the second draw, I opened it I found only that particular visa as the rest 5 visas, I had kept it inside the safe. I was dumbfounded, SaiRam really helped me. I really was so much thrilled and excited that I was feeling on the top of the world. Sai helps everybody. It's just the faith, devotion and entire surrender to him will help everybody in all walks of life

Dear Sai Brothers and Sisters, I have been a devotee of Sai for the past fifteen years. Whatever God does is for our own good, some of us do not have a job, or you may have lost a dear one, or suffer an illness. Whatever our fears or pains we must trust God.

We must be "Fearless", we must be strong and overcome "Depression" and last of all we must not "Doubt Sai". We must not resort to thinking about killing ourselves; this is the coward's way out. You will still have to undergo your Karmas in the next life, better to resolve them her and now in this life.

Think how much better off you are than the person who has not had a meal for a few days. Who has no family or friends? Who has no home? Who has a disability or has an illness? Are you not better than them? Of course you are! Has God not sheltered you? Thank God that you are alive. Life is too precious to lose its because of your fears, these are just passing clouds. Have faith.

Whatever your problems, no harm can come to our true selves the ATMA, Seek not rewards in this life, for this rotting body, which will drop-off at anytime, but rewards in the after life.

We should look within ourselves to resolve our own problem that is why God gives us these problems. We should not disturb the vibration of our Dear Brothers and Sisters by complaining about our problems, and broadcasting them.

I am writing from personal experiences, I have lost my wife and child, I have suffered financially, and was homeless, and I had health problems. Now with gods Grace, I have got stronger and have got married again. I know that sometime in the future I have my own house, we have to leave it to Sai, He knows when it right, it is better to pick a reap mango than to pluck a raw one, it tastes so much better.

There is light at the end of the tunnel, for some of us the tunnel is a little longer, for our past Karmas. But we will overcome them. So pray for God Blessing and his Grace.

Last night, the power was off for a while due to rains. It came back but the somehow the Internet settings on my Personal Computer were corrupted. I could not access the Internet. I have been reading Life History of Shirdi Sai Baba by Sri Ammula Sambasiva Rao, English Translation by Thota Bhaskara Rao since four days, early in the morning. I was disappointed and a little bit worried because about a week ago, when the settings were mistakenly changed, I could not figure out and had to wait for my son to come and fix them two days later. Even now, he will not be able to come until late in the afternoon. I do not want to eat before reading the story. It looked like an obstacle. Still, I desperately opened the menus and tried changing the settings without knowing what I was actually changing. Amazingly, I got the connection and I could not do so last time. I felt that Sai fixed it. I also felt that if the problem did not occur, I would not have recognized that He was watching me and helping me. Later, I showed my son the settings I entered and told him that they worked this morning. He could not understand why they worked So it was Sai who fixed the problem for me I then thought that the problems we encounter in life help us to turn our minds towards Him and pray to Him and help us to feel His presence.

I am Baba's devotee for the last 17 years. My son was born after 5 years of marriage and we kept his name"Sanyam" i.e Sai. Six months back I had some problem with my wife and was surprised that she went for a divorce and Sanyam was put in hostel. I have not seen him for the last six months. Do not know why Sai has done this to me. People say, " Jo hota hai ache ke liya hota hai". But I do not know what "acha" is going to happen. I had very hard time in last six months.

SAI has come to my place writing "Om Sri Sairam" himself in my book. During mediation, I have seen him. Please pray to Sainath to get all of us, me, Sanyam, and Deepika together and if this happens, it will be miracle for me by SAI

During my elder sisters wedding preparations my mother who is a single parent was having a tough time to catch up. She vowed to read the book Sai Satcharitha in 7 days in order to get everything in line. But being so held up in preparations I decided to read it on her behalf. With Baba's grace I not only managed to do the saptah but the outcome was wonderful. My working hours are so long but I managed to do my Saptah on the net and for me the first miracle was that no one at work enquired as to why I spend more hours on the net. I don't know what words to use to explain how many miracles Baba has shown us during this period. We had people from all over including strangers who came up to assist. The Satcharitha is a blessing to us. I have personally read it so many times but such is Baba's leela that every time you read it you learn a new lesson.

Thank you Baba for all the help. I was praying Baba for a visitor's visa for my mom and by Baba's grace, my mom got a visa. She was barely asked any questions. Baba, I am posting the result in Sai Vichaar as promised to you. Thanks again Baba for all the help. Please be with us every moment as always.

Being an Indian I was aware of the name Sai Baba of Shirdi but had never dwelled on the subject and did not realize how powerful He was. A few months back I was going through the worst period of my life. I had lost my job and I had very little savings to go on. I was so depressed that many times I would think of taking my life. I felt I did not make a difference to anyone and that no one would miss me. By chance when I was browsing the net for jobs I came across this site and it opened my eyes to a new world where Baba takes care of everyone and makes each person feel special. I read about the experiences of so many Sai believers. It gave me a new kind of hope. I started reading Sai Satcharitha and praying to Sai to help me get a job and move ahead in life. Within two days, I started getting interview calls and finally on a Thursday I had this interview at a very big company where now am presently working. Sai Baba has changed my life. There are still so many things which have to be sorted out in my life but I am sure Baba will help me. Baba I thank you for blessing me and helping me get this nice job. Please continue to have your kripa on me

I strongly believe in two words Shradha & Saburi given by Shree Lord Saibaba. This two words helps everyone in frustrating situations of life. Everyday I pray to him and remembering that "If you look at to me, I will look at you" slogan. I understand that whatever you give to me is the best for me. With the blessing of Lord Shree Saibaba, I have good wife, a three month old son, and good job. His majesty is proven.

But BABA alone decides when we have to have darshan of his holy lotus feet.
As i went to the Sai Temple on New year and prayed on his lotus feet.........I forgot to wish him Happy New Year.I sat in the mandir looking at HIM.
A small boy passed by me and told his mother.........mummy meine Sai baba KO CHUPKE SE HAPPY NEW YEAR BOL DIYA.
Immediately it struck me that i had forgoten to wish BABA HAPPY NEW YEAR......TEARS STARTED ROLLING DOWN AND I WAS REMINDED HOW BABA USED TO REMIND ......DEVOTEES WHO USED TO FORGET DAKSHINA.

Om Sai Ram, I would like to share one of my experiences with you all. I was travelling in an auto and I left my purse in the auto itself. My debit card and some amount were there in the purse. I also had a photo of Saibaba pada (which is a very rare photo). When I reached my home, I realized that my purse was missing. I immediately started crying. I was very much worried about the photo as that was very precious to me. All my friends were with me. They assured me that I would get another photo of the same kind. But I wanted the same photo. Then I was taken to the bank by my friends to block the debit card. While traveling to the bank, I was continuously praying asking Baba to help me and get back my purse. Then we went to the bank and blocked the card. I also thought of applying for a new card but the staff there asked me to wait for two days saying that I might get my card back. Then I came back from the bank just to know that the purse was returned safely by a stranger. It seems that a person who boarded the auto had seen the purse and asked the driver about it. The driver had said that it was his purse. But the passenger not believing him, as it was ladies purse asked him to drop him at the place where I got down. Then the purse was got by my friend. On knowing this, I was in tears thinking about the leela of Baba who has come to the rescue of an ignorant person like me. I do not have words to explain the greatness of Baba. Baba is the savior of all.

Leela's of Shree Satchitananda Sadguru Sainath Maharaja cannot be expressed by any means in this world. I was a dull boy in the school. I always used to be the last in the class. In 2001, I visited Shirdi first time. I saw Baba's pratima in the Samadhi Mandir. I was so pleased from head to toe that I cannot express. I prayed to Baba and I took a vow that if I stood first in the class I will come here and trim my hair of the head and present it at Baba's feet. Now here is the unbelievable result. That year I stood first in the class and after that next year, I stood not only first in the class but I was first in the whole University. I won a Gold Medal. This does not end here. Later I came to know that I was first in the whole state of Gujarat and for that government of Gujarat and other institutions has given me other credentials for excellent performance. By the blessings of Baba, I went for higher study and I finished my M.Tech from IIT Bombay. Now how can we believe that a dull boy of the class became a state topper and studied in the premier institute of the World? I pray to the Lord Sai only that do not remove us from Your feet. This is the place in the whole universe where we can stay calm and peacefully.

Around five months back I resigned from my company and accepted another job. I asked Baba before finally taking the offer and He did not want me to take up the offer. But I still went ahead and took the offer. After five months, I realized what a mistake I did and now I am back to my old company. I am never going to commit this mistake of going against Baba's will. Things have been good again for me and now I have made up my mind that whatever is going to happen in my life is going to happen with Baba's blessings. I urge you all to keep the faith in Baba and I assure you that you will never need to repent for the same.

Om Sri Sai Ram, Om Jai Jai Baba. We want to share our experience of Baba's mercy and kindness. My wife was pregnant of four months baby, once she felt no moving inside or no felling, we got worried and went to hospital. Dr. has checked her for at least 25 to 30 min and after his initial checks up, Dr has said there are no heartbeats and no moving so there is some problem in side for sure. Then he did sonography but still he has with the same opinion. We both were worried like anything. Then after Dr. has suggested us to go for ultrasound. Before Ultrasound, we had to wait for 1:30 to 2:00 hours as the specialist was not there, and this time was very crucial for us. We both were thinking we never did wrong to anybody or not think even then why this is going to happened with us? We both were crying and try to accept this bitter reality. Same time I told my wife, Don't worry, do think of Baba only, Baba is here only and seeing us, Our baby is gift of Baba and he will take care of it for sure. We both were seating in hospital and waiting for our turn. Then we went for Ultrasound, Between the Ultrasound Process, At least after five or seven min baby got started moving, after finished the process, Dr. has declared everything is normal. We both were so happy as we have another life. When we came out from hospital my wife told me, I spoke to BABA in my heart that we will bring our baby to Shirdi for his blessings, And that time my eyes were full of tears as I was supposed to tell her the same thing. Baba has just given us a very sweet and healthy baby boy on October 7th. Baba, we wanted to come to Shridi in coming January, please permit us to do so, kindly accept our Sat Sat Pranam.

A Sai devotee
I had injured myself around 10 days back when I slipped and fell. The fall resulted in a constant pain in the lower part of my spine. I had to be careful when I sat down, stretched or bent. I ignored it because I didn't want to go to a doctor as it would mean getting into the health insurance maze. Somehow the pain kept getting worse and my movements were getting more restricted by the day. On the day before yesterday, I sent up a fervent, silent prayer to Sai asking him to cure the pain completely. As I prayed, the usual doubts haunted me -- "What if the pain doesn't go away? Will Sai actually cure it?" etc etc. I pushed down those doubts, thinking to myself firmly that Sai will cure it if I ask Him. Within a few minutes, I could feel the pain receding a bit. Of course, my doubts did not go away even then. I thought, "Maybe the pain won't go away completely". But again, I pushed the thought out and went about my day. At the end of the day, I was surprised to find very little pain and when I thought back, I realized that I had been able to move really freely through the day. The next day i.e. yesterday, the pain had all but gone and I was almost back to normal. Today morning when I woke up, I realized there was absolutely no pain (I used to have some pain when I slept in a certain way). I was overjoyed. I still cannot believe how incredibly lucky I am to have Sainath listening to me. I can hardly be called a devotee -- I have very little willpower and more often than not, my attempts at expressing my devotion succumb to my bad habits. But, He is so very merciful.

Devi
All Sai devotees, I want to share my wonderful Sai Baba's experience with you. We went to Shirdi 18 years ago, where we met a nice family. Later on, we became good family friends. On one Sunday afternoon, our Shirdi friends told us that his colleague is looking for match for his son who is in America. Later on by Baba's grace, I got married to the groom in America. It was a dream come true for me and to my family. We never thought this is possible. Without his abhaya hasta, I cannot even imagine my life. On our wedding day Sai himself came and ate at my wedding lunch and went off as quickly as he came. People still talk about the experiences of meeting Sai at my wedding. Sai Baba, Sata Koti pranam for giving us everything and guiding us in your way. Sometimes I blame you for not responding quickly, but I understand you do things in your way. Forgive me for all mistakes that I did with ignorance. Thanks again for all your blessings and generous grace.

I had submitted my article in Sai Vichaar and that time I had thought in my mind that if my article publishes it would be a sign that I will meet my eternal love with whom I have been departed. To my surprise on 9 Feb, Wednesday evening I met him. We had a talk for hours. and to my more surprise morning on Thursday when I opened my pc, this Sai site I saw my article in the Sai Vichaar. You do not know Sai what happiness you have given me. I am humbly honored. Now I only desire and hope that this is your love to us. I do not know how to thank you. Sai maa please keep on blessing like this.

I am not alone-Baba is with Me  

I am pleased to share my following glorious experience with innumerable Sai devotees.

It was during November, 1997. My wife and myself went to our daughter's home in the United States. I am a diabetic patient and I also had an attack of severe bronchitis before we left India. The doctors here had prescribed medication to be taken during our stay in the US.

We reached US on schedule and continued to stay with our daughter comfortably. As per our routine, we used to worship our beloved deity Sri Sainath by chanting the usual prayers everyday. We had planned our sojourn for three months. On the thirtieth day after our arrival in US, I suddenly had severe cramps in the chest. I could not bear the pain or breath. I lied down wherever I was. We were alone in the house with the infant kids of our daughter, as our daughter and son-in-law had left for their work. I was alone in the drawing room when I had these cramps. I somehow beckoned my wife who was in the kitchen. She was shocked when she saw my plight and immediately phoned my daughter at the office. It was snowing at the time and there was eighteen inches of snow on the road and approach to our home. Temperature outside was below zero. On hearing about my condition at home one of her senior colleague helped her drive through the snow and they rushed to the house within fifteen minutes.

When my daughter saw my distressed state, she did not waste time pondering. She called the emergency service and explained to them of our predicament. Within ten minutes, the emergency squad arrived at our place fully equipped. There were two doctors too in the squad. They checked my condition, took ECG on the spot and decided that it was a stroke and that I have to be immediately admitted to a hospital having facility to perform a heart surgery. There were two hospitals nearby who could perform the surgery. As it was heavily snowing, most of the roads were blocked. I was physically immobile but I was in senses. I pleaded that "I need not be taken to any hospital and I will be all right soon and that I can get necessary medical aid in India." The emergency squad insisted that I should be taken to the hospital and specialist doctors will decide the future course. They asked for our preference of hospital, and my son-in-law suggested a name known to him, where there was a specialist Indian doctor attached to them. They then put me on the stretcher and we waded through snow on the way to the hospital.

Within 30 minutes we reached the place. On arrival, the staff took me to the emergency cell. I distinctly remember that, lying on the stretcher on way to emergency room, I was continuously chanting and remembering Lord Sainath's name. Silently chanting his name I may have lapsed into an unconscious state. Within an hour I understand that they conducted various tests including catheterization. The tests suggested that there were four blocks in the arteries. A conference was held among various doctors and surgeons and it was decided that an open heart bypass surgery has to be conducted without delay.

Hospital authorities summoned the anesthetist and within two hours of arriving at the hospital the surgery was commenced. I was not aware of anything that was being performed on my physical body. I was gleefully wandering somewhere in the most pleasant gardens and lawns in a serene atmosphere. I was aware that 'I' was not alone and Lord Sainath was with me'.

It nearly took five hours for the surgeon and his assistants, to complete the task of cutting the veins from my calves and thighs and plant them firmly in place in the arteries. The operation was successful. Probably it took another six hours for me to regain my consciousness. My wife, it seems was continuously praying Baba for the success of the surgery and for my speedy recovery. Her prayers were answered. She was there to give me an assuring smile although in tears of joy.

I came to senses all right! But I was trying to find me! I was neither there nor here! It took me some time. May be a minute or two, I am not sure! Suddenly I realized that I was with Baba, and I was walking down from the inside of his heart back to my bed. I was in a state of confusion! I did not for a moment understand why I had to leave Baba and that beautiful garden and walk down to this miserable place. I started looking for him. I could not find! Then after some time, I concluded that he had walked along with me and may have entered my heart! Yes, He is still there! Always there! I am not sure when I will have another opportunity roaming those gardens with Him! Why should I worry? Let Him decide.

One thing that has entered my heart now after the surgery is not the new veins 'but that' I am not alone and Baba is always with me! He loves, provides and protects.

"I am not alone, Baba is with me" is not an exclusive privilege of mine. It is a fact decreed for every devotee. We have to be aware of His presence. He is with us hearing and looking at everything we say and do. He is witnessing our every speech and actions. The moment the awareness of his continuous presence is felt, we get transformed. The thoughts which are the cause of our speech and actions will naturally get oriented to speak and do things which have His approval. Our ego the 'I' will get a knock and a slap. Our speech will get changed to be very courteous and polite. We start appreciating others. We will start saying "Oh! You have done a great job". This is because we also feel the Lord's presence in the person, whom we are addressing. We shall start saying, "I admit I was wrong". I know how difficult it is to admit our inadequacies. But with the awareness of his presence in us it is easy. The 'I' becomes a non-entity. When the 'I' gives room for 'We' the life turns out to be a happy passing phase.

One more thing we normally say "I did this, I said this, I did that, I said that" etc. We should make it a habit to say "Let us do this, let us do that" etc. Let us include Him also in whatever we say or do. I am a non-entity without Him. It is He who does everything and we are only His instruments.

The eight words "I am not alone, Baba is with me" is a mantra that we have to repeat daily and at all times and feel His presence with us!

When I remember the day of 22nd January 1987, I afflict with fear. If Baba did not favour, I would have to live in the darkened world.

          As usual I was busy with the typing-work. My eyes were turning from the script to the paper on the typewriter..... and within few minutes my right eye started paining. I thought insertion of some minor foreign body in the eye and neglected. But, as the time passed on, the pain increased. Due to this pain, I lost my concentration and attention. Two more days passed. The pain increased day by day. I felt the seriousness and thought to consult the doctor. Thus, I visited the doctor on 25th January. Doctor gave me tablets and medicament, which proved useless. Not the less from that day, I was more harassed by constant headache and frequent vomiting. I rushed to the doctor. “The pains may continue for eight days and then you will feel better,” the doctor assured me. I felt that everything would be all right as the doctor told, and returned home. From 26th January onward my ill-fate started. On that day I lost the sight of my right eye. On very next day, the sight of the left eye also became less. Subsequently I ran to the doctor. He then felt something serious. He advised me to go to Pune and consult the doctor in Ruby Hall Clinic or Sasoon. On 28th, I went to Sasoon. The doctors there asked me the history. I explained in detail. Various tests were done and injections and tablets were tried. The eye specialist examined me thoroughly. My friend Dr. Avinash Nagpure (He was studying M.B.B.S. last year) advised me to bear the trouble. At that time he was the only support for me. “It is improbable to regain the sight in such cases,” the doctor whispered. I heard his words and lost my all the inner strength. I was terribly frightened, seeing blind future with my blind eyes. At the same time I heard the doctor saying, “By the mercy of God the sight may be regained”. It gave me light of hope. I have faith in Baba, Baba’s teaching of ‘Shraddha’ and ‘Saburi’. I regained the strength with this thought.

          Specially to note, when I started for Pune on 28th morning, went to Baba’s Samadhi temple and prayed Baba, “I am going to Pune with my half eye instead of two..... Please bring me here with both the eyes or finish my life there only”. Praying like this I started applying Udi to the eyes everyday. At that time my father, mother, brothers, sisters, Dr. Nagpure, Mr. Ratilalji Lodha, Mr. Sadashiv Gorade and Mr. Kailas Gaikwad gave me the courage. I am grateful to them.

          From the first Thursday of February I could see little with my left eye. My mind and eyes flourished like a flower. There was progress in the sight and my happiness had no bounds. Next Thursday I could see clearly with my both eyes. I could see my beloveds and every happening around me ! I could see every thing. My sight reburied !

          I was discharged after 15 days and was told to have check-up every fortnight. I returned Shirdi with satisfaction. Baba listened my prayer. My eyes were full of tears and the joy. I washed Baba’s ‘Charan’ with my tears. After 15 days eyes were clear. I successfully came out of bad dream.

          Mean while there was a Charitable Eye Camp at Shri Sainath Hospital, Shirdi. Foreign eye specialist had come to attend the patients. I got my eyes checked by them. I told them detail history. Showed them all papers. They listened me and saw the record. They told me, “We will give you more effective medicine. Try it every day and you will never suffer”. I was very happy and enquired about medicine. They told me “APPLY BABA’S UDI TO YOUR EYES EVERY DAY..... YOU GOT CURED BY THE BLESSINGS OF SADGURU SHRI SAI BABA”.

This is a recent leela by Samartha Sadguru Sainatha Maharaj. I along with few friends have been planning to start a franchise and with Baba's grace, the things have been moving smoothly. The date was fixed for the signing of agreement was fixed, in fact I have asked the other party whether we can do this on Thursday, by Baba's grace they have agreed for that. Just few days before this signing day, my friend who has just returned from visit to India had emailed me saying that he had shipped the Baba's prasad to my address. I was so happy by reading that and prayed in my mind that I should get this prasad on the day we are going to sign the franchise agreement. Devotees, now you can guess what would have happened on that day, I came back home after signing the papers and opened my mail box quite nervously whether Baba had blessed me or not. I was so thrilled and overjoyed by seeing the packet with Baba's prasad from friend. There are lot of leelas by Baba ever since I started worshipping in the 90's. I am always thankful to him for his love and blessings all through these years and pray him to continue shower his love and blessings.

Sairam, I do not have words to explain your miracles. Just one instance, which I prayed to post in Sai Vichaar. I was disturbed about my current compensation from my current employer and decided to quit and move to another organization. My current employer called me and agreed to give me 20 percent hike which I thought is not what I deserved and prayed to Baba on Wednesday night that it would be better if I get 30 percent hike and that if I get it I would post my experience in Sai Vichaar. As prayed, the merciful Baba really helped me out in such a way that when I came to office next day which was a Thursday, I was moved with tears from my eyes when I saw the mail from my leader saying that he is ready to offer me 30 percent hike. How merciful is our lord how are we to thank him than remembering his name always. Thank you Sairam

I was suffering from back-ache since last two months, went to Medical center and got checked up, and an x-ray taken out for further investigation, but could hardly find any problem, and was given only pain killing tablets. I took those tablets but did not find any improvement, rather it was increasing. Then on 25th Jan 2006, there was Annadanam going on in Shri Saibaba Temple, where I was called for assistance. Due to back pain, I decided to offer only moral support and not to take items for distribution. But, surprisingly Baba started sending one after one asking me to take Dal, Rice, or Roti etc for distribution. Thrice I expressed my inability, and was supervising the things. But He did not leave me, and again sent somebody and asked me to take Dal for distribution. This time I could not say no and took a bucket of Dal and looked at Him (through open window) and thought in my mind 'Baba! you are repeatedly testing me, I feel this must be to grace me and relieve me of back pain', and started distributing the Dal with bending and standing for number of times. Surprisingly, from the day onwards within three days my back pain was gone to a great extent and some residual pain is there, which also shall be removed by His blessings.

Our son, who is working in the US, had come to India last week on a brief visit. On his return, he was told at the Delhi airport that his flight was delayed. As a result, he missed his connecting flight from Munich, and was put to much inconvenience. The onward journey was a circuitous one, and led to a great deal of fatigue and inconvenience. As if that was not enough, on reaching his destination, New York, he found that his suitcase containing all his new, expensive clothes and other important belongings, had been lost! We were all very unhappy to hear about it as it meant a lot of trouble and inconvenience to him. This happened late at night, and he had to attend office from early next morning, which left him no time at all to even buy new clothes, shoes, toiletries etc. My only resort at this juncture was Shirdi Sai Baba. I prayed very sincerely and requested Baba to find out and send back the lost suitcase as early as possible, with all his belongings intact. Three days had passed, and there was no news of the suitcase. I told Baba that since Thursday was His day, a miracle must take place. Lo and behold, on Wednesday night we received the news that our son's lost suitcase had at last been delivered to him at home! I have absolutely no words to thank Baba. This was nothing short of a miracle, made possible only by Sai Baba's divine grace and blessings. Today being Thursday, I went to the local Sai Baba Temple to offer my thanks to Him. On my return from the temple, I was told by a friend who had just returned from Shirdi that she would be sending some "prasad" for us! Yet another instance to prove Baba's constant presence in our home. May Sai Baba's blessings be with us always! Jai Sai Ram!

Sairam:

I would like to share how Sai saved and protected us today from a catastrophe. After we have moved into our new house,  we have fixed a large photo of Shirdi Sai from the Samadhi Mandir  facing the main entrance door, so that Baba sits there Blessing and protecting the house and everyone who visits us.

 

Today morning my family decided to go to Balaji temple in Aurora and do prayers. While leaving at 10.30am , I prayed at the entrance looking at Baba as usual, to protect the house and family. We went out by van by exiting through the garage door. While in the temple, I was praying to Balaji to show His presence in that big idol, which was nicely decorated. I prayed to Balaji to help me remember Sai always in my thoughts and action. I was eagerly waiting for an assurance from Him, in the form of at least one petal falling from the Balaji Moola Vigraha. Nothing noticeable happened, while I stood there for long. The time to leave the sanctum sanctorum came, I half heartedly took leave, just then not from Moola vigraha, but the small idol of Rama which was kept below the feet of Balaji, from that a petal fell down. I was thrilled and got happy with the assurance Balaji gave. I prostrated a few times conveying my gratitude to Sai.

 

With the resolution of remembering Sai's name, we drove back home around 4pm. It was very windy, cold and snow flurries have been falling continuously from the time we left the house. When we reached home, as usual we parked the van in the garage. We entered the house through the garage door. From the road we drove and entered, we cannot see our main entrance door. Everything looked normal as I came into the house, but my wife who had gone inside before me, shouted loud and called me to come and see the main entrance. Without removing the shoes, I ran inside thinking something had gone wrong. We both noticed that our front door was widely open, with snow fallen inside the house, it looked as if someone had entered through that door left it open. It was freezing inside the house, in that floor. I immediately ran upstairs and checked every room and the valuables. All were intact, nothing was stolen, though the door was kept open, there is no evidence of anyone entered the house. In the second floor, it was very hot, due to the heating going on continuously. We were shocked how the door was opened. It then came to our thinking, that the door was not locked fully when we went out, due to heavy wind it would have got opened.

 

Even though many people would have passed by seeing the open door, we were thankful that no theft has taken place. There was no fire hazard too, due to the increased heating because of low temperature in the first floor, which had heated up heavily the second floor rooms. We both stood prayerfully staring at the Shirdi Sai's photo decorating the entrance. We are thankful to Baba for protecting us and the house, as He only saved us from great mishap, by constantly watching and taking care of the house. This miracle further assured me of Sai's presence and my resolution of constantly remembering Him.

Sridhar.

Baba is just great. I was searching for a job for the past 4 months. Many devotees may know because I used to write regular prayers. Now I got a job. I was really tensed and told Baba that I will not eat non-veg on Thursdays. After 2nd Thursday, I got it. I will continue with my prayer. In between, these days I went to see an astrologer and he told I won't get job. But I had faith in Baba and continued to pray. On Monday, I will join. Just chant Baba's name you will be blessed.

I am into recruitment section in consultancy. Last month I had to face difficult situation. I got short listing of candidates for interview from my client side. That time I called one of my previous short listed candidates also. Next day when I confirmed with my client, he directly refused to call old candidates so I called that old candidate again but he told that he had booked his airfare ticket. I was shocked so I requested him to cancel his ticket. But that air flight has no provision for cancellation of tickets. I felt very bad that without confirming his appointment, I called him up for an interview. Not only did I give him a false hope but also wasted his money in air tickets, which he will not get back on cancellation. That time I prayed to Saibaba to save this candidate's money. In lunch hour I was very depressed, before starting my lunch I took Baba's name and again called up client officer, the same person who was earlier quite reluctant, this time said that he would try to manage and arrange that candidate interview. After 1 to 2 hours, he confirmed me with specific date and time. The next day that candidate was called for an interview. In the evening that candidate called me up and told me that among all other candidates he has been selected. I was so surprised and happy. How Baba managed all things and helped me. Yesterday that candidate had an offer letter also. Thanks Baba for everything. Baba, always be with me and bless me and my family members.


Sumeet
I just wanted to share my experience of how Baba was with me through out my sickness, surgery and recovery period. A month back I started having severe headaches. Initially the attacks were once in two days and then they reached three times a day. The headaches were so severe that I wanted to take apart my head. Fortunately for us, Baba called us to the Sai mandir in Baldwin, NY and blessed us with vibhuti. During one of the attacks, my wife put that vibhuti and in five minutes, my attack got over. From that day onwards whenever I used to get the attack, we used to put vibhuti and both me and my wife used to chant Om Sairam and it reduced my attack period from two hours to 30 minutes. When we met the doctor, he diagnosed that I had polyps in my sinuses and hence my infection is not curing. He asked us to go for surgery. In the Operation Theatre, I went under general anesthesia with the thoughts of Sai Ram. Luckily, during surgery doctor found out that it was a fungus ball and he did not had to cut anything. Sai Ram helped me during my recovery phase too. Due to general anesthesia and morphine, I developed severe constipation. Baba pulled me out through it too. Sai devotees please never get depressed, He is always with us and will always come to over rescue.

Dear Sir, thanks a lot again for sending me the Sai Vichaar. Here I want to share my experience. My son is a case of cerebral palsy. He was not able to sit. Only the day after my wife cried and prayed in front of Baba, he sat on his own. I got an opportunity to do my MTech at IIT by praying to Baba. Now my son is walking independently. Of course, he is not able to speak. But we have great faith on Baba that he will talk with us soon. He is now 4 yrs old. Really, Baba takes away our sorrows when we pray with faith and patience. Sai bless us.

A Sai Devotee
I wish to write my recent experience I had and I was out of it just due to Sai's grace. I work for a major automobile company here in North America and I was given a project to handle by our management, which was beyond my area of expertise. Things turned worse, project failed to be delivered on the deadline for various reasons, and I was held accountable for it. This came right before the time when the company was choosing candidates for lay-offs within the company After suffering for sometime and not knowing which way to go, I finally approached my immediate supervisor. Much to my amazement, my supervisor did not feel I was at fault, but rather found the fault at the original source from where the request for the project came from. He not only personally made it a point to get me the correct expertise and help needed to get the project completed, but also volunteered to talk to the top management in my favor. Not only did the project get underway, I also got away from a mistake, which could have cost me my job. During the time of going through the agony and pain, not once did it occur that I should talk to my supervisor. It was only when I prayed to Shree Sai to get me out of this and my promise to write my experience on Sai Vichaar, that I got the thought(buddhi) to talk to my supervisor.

Rohit
The 15th September, happened to be my birthday, morning 5.30 am, the telephone rings and when I pick up, a voice tells me "Rohitbhai, your factory has caught fire". The earth under my feet is shaken. The first words that come out of my mouth, "Baba please save me, what wrong have I done? Please don't punish me like this. I shall be ruined. When we reach there, black smoke was coming out from all ventilators and window gaps of my factory on the first floor; which I could see from under the building. I just collapse, still chanting Baba, Baba and started crying profusely, as it was apparent that my garment manufacturing factory, which I had made with lot of hard work and with blessings of Baba in fifteen years, was gutted. I opened one shutter of the main entrance and went up. It was too Smokey and I couldn't stay there for long. The fire brigade van came. They went up my main entrance but could not understand the source of fire. So they broke open the other shutter and there a fierce fire was burning in the middle of the unit on the ground floor. In minutes, the fire brigade took control of the fire. It most obviously looked to be a fire in my factory on first floor from all angles; whereas at the end of it all, not even a spark had reached my premises. It so happened that the fire took in the ground unit and the smoke found its way through the other entrance of my factory. That day my entire career or fifteen years in garment manufacturing industry would have finished, as my entire premises of 4000 sq.ft. Area was fully packed with festive season's finished and unfinished goods worth much more (4 times more) than my insurance. I realized the existence of Baba with me!!! It was Him and only Him, who stood in front of the fire and my factory that morning.

A Sai devotee
I thank you from the core of heart for spreading Sai's teachings throughout the world by this Newsletter and by Heritage of Shirdi Sai Magazine. Om Shri Sai Ram. I don't know how to write but still I want to share my experiences with everyone. I have been a Sai devotee since 2003. I have myself experienced Sai's grace in a number of ways. My older son does not work and younger son has some skin problem. I always pray to Baba and asks, why this happened and please shower grace on both of them. In the early morning of Thursday I saw Baba standing by side of pool. I touched Baba's feet and He blessed me. Exactly next Thursday my younger son went for an interview and he got the Job. Thank you Baba so much. I don't have words to say thanks. These are the ways of Sai. Have faith in Baba I am sure He will fulfill desires of everyone. Please Baba show my older son the right direction, so that he will finish his degree and get a job and set in his life. Please shower grace on everyone who believes in You

EXPERIENCES      --     T.B.Jambunathan, Head Clerk,D.F.O. Madhura  states:-

For four years, I have been a  devout Sai Bhakta.  All these    years  Sri Sai  Baba  has protected my family. He has given us four warnings in dreams, that have   helped us in escaping shock and reducing pain. Mostly he appears as an old man. Subsequent  events have proved  the truth of  the warnings and intimations given in dreams. I have one daughter. Two years  back, Baba appeared in  her dream and told  her “Soon you  will have a son.” And a little later, she gave birth to a son who was named “Sai Raman”. Fourteen months after that bbirth, she bore another son who  was named”Sai Prasad”. In october 1943 i.e. 4 months after the second child  was born, my daughter dreamed that an  old man came to her in her dreaam and said”Will you give me Sai Raman?”and that she refused. She  communicated the dreamto me, I said to  her that it  was Baba that asked for the  child and that  is  wrong to refuse when he wants to take back his gift. Nearly two months  passed thereafter. In novembeer, the old man appeared to her in her dream  and again asked for  Sai Raman. She again refused. But the old man  said that in two months, he would taake away  the boy. That is, the boy was to be  taken away in January 1944 and the   hour fixed for his departure, viz., 4-15 Aa.M.  by the old man.  That  old man  was  we,  knew, Sai Baba, from our past experience. This Sai Raman was a very precociously devout child. He would stroke his cheeks standing  before Sai Baba’s picture and go to  sleep lulled by Sai Keertanas and would often prosptraaate  himself before Baba;s picture.

Soon after this dream  Sai Raman  had enlargement of liver and spleen  which grew  worse and worse.

Medical  treatment was tried- the best we could get there. That was all  invain.

His  body  became yellow and bloated. The day mentioned by Baba  in the dream  was 5-1-44. The  previous day I mentioned the approaching departure of Sai Raman to a kinsman. He wondered  how calm and unpreturbed I was in mentioning the approach of such a sad event as though it was some total stranger that was about to die. The fatal  night came.  We  made Sai Japa. The mother watched all night by the  child’s bed side.  Just before the time the child was to pass away  the mother fell asleep, the clock in the room stopped running and perpectual lamp(Akhandaaa Deepaa) that was always burning  before Sai Baba’s picture in  the house was extinguished.  She  saw in dream Baba on a peacock taking sway Sai Ram.
She cried  out, in the dream itself” Aalas, the child is going sway”  with that cry on her lips, she woke up and found the child  dead and  the  lamp extinguished.
Baba by his forewarnings and dream visions softened the blow; and the child’s mother bore the  shock  and pain  of its departure more easily when  parting is inevitable, see Baba prepare us for  eases  our pain!


(By S.Subba Rao,  Pleader)

On or  about the end  of the  1st week of February  1944, I heard a voice in my  sleeping moments saying”Make incessant namajam of Dattatreya”. I got up  from my bed and thought that  Baba,  has armed me wirh a  weapon toward  off the calamity that is  about to befall. I serously resolved  to make namajapam  of  Dattatreya as directed by Baba, but owing  to my preoccupation with other wordly matters, I could  not  do  namajapam. Next day Baba appreared as a judge in my dream and was very angry  with me for my act of omission to make  namajapam. I got up and  could not then understand  the cause of Baba’s indignaion. I again slept and dreamt  of having seen gingelly  seeds  and  of  having eaten them in large quantities. This is really a very bad dream and  deotees death according to the Science  of  Dreams. I got  up in the morning and was  sorry for the bad dream.  I got  a letter from my son  at Engineering College Guindy, that he was laid up  (in   the in-patient sick ward of the Guindy Hospital, suffering from a severe atack of asthama and in a precarious condition.  This, letter on the subsequent day, reminded  me of Baba’s precaution  on the previous night  directing  me to make Datta namajapam. I went before Baba’s  picture in  my house,  repented  for my  folly and made serious  namajapam  of Datta.  Three  days a fter  that, I  received a letter from my sickyt son at  Guindy that  he  was  getting  better by Baba’s grace and that he would go over to  Gooty  in spite of his serious and awful weakness.  I  ran  up to Madras to put  him  in a nursing  home but the Doctor  in  charge advised for a change. I accompanied him to  Gooty from Madras  by day  train in spite of his dreadful weakness entirely relying  upon Baba’s Udhi and  making  Datta  namajapam  even in the train.  We  reached  Gooty  and he began to recover  without any further meidicine.  He was  here for about  a fortnight and went to   Madras in  a decidedly  better state of health. Even now,  I am making  Datta  Namajapam for his complete recovery;  and he is on the sure road  to health.

Thus Baba saved my soon (Enggineering student)from the  throes  of death by his timely advice to me to make namajapam  of Datta as directed by Him and by the application of  Udhi. Dear Readers ! Understand  how Baba  has shown his love towards me and  my   son by prompting caustionery  steps  to do namajapam, this is entirely due to my having placed  intense faith in Him and  to my complete surrender to Baba  of all  my cares and  worries.

Experiencee of  K. Ramasami  Pillai, receiver, Estate, aged  34,  Maredpalli,  Secunderabad(Deccan)


Six months back, R got stomach trouble.  After meals, just when digestion would be going on R got severe pain in the stomach and vomited all  he-ate. This went on everyday. Allopathic and Ayurvedic medicines were tried and have no relieif. One month back, sow, Susila his wife, vowed that if the disease be cured, herself and  husband would go to Shirdi in june next. In  10 days  thereafter,  he got a dream whrerein a voice  said ‘Feed five persons and you will be alright’. He told his mother about his dream in the  morning and this was communicated to Sow. Susila’s  mother sow. Ethirajamma. Sow.  Ethirajamma at resolved to  feed 5 people and made a vow to  that effect 10 days back. That same night Susila also got a dream wherein she was told by her  guru. ‘Feed five people’. Next day she fed 5 people. From that day onward  R’s digestion greatly improved. He  eats all things  now and has no pain or vomit.

G.S.Devi. c/o Dr. Balaram  (her brother)  Konakonda (via  Guntakal) writes:-
I am a  Sai Bhakta, When B.V.N.Swami visited our place on 28-2-44,he  was taken  in procession through the streets of our village. One gentelmen noticed a strange old Mahomodan walking alongside of B.V.N.Swami at that time and telling    him(B.V.N.Swami)”I shall meet you at Vajrakarur soon,” When the procession reached its end, a dinner had been arranged for a large number, but the brother of the host though that the Mahomodan visitor should or could not be given food and so he by sounding his fingers and waving his hands drew the attention of that visitor and bade him  be  off. So that visitor left. All this was unknown to me. I did Pada Pooja and gave a night meal to B.V.N.Swami at my borther’s house  that night and slept.  In my dream came a young  boy of 6 summers and told me,”you boast you give grand meals.  I was not given ghee”. I could not understand the significance  of dream and on enquiry I learnt of Mohomadan visitor apprearance and dismissal without a meal. There was Bhajna(on Thursday)at the house of the gentelmen who was the host at the above mentioned dinner. I went there and told him of the above facts and my dream. He felt that  Sai Baba   had appeared in that form and been   sent away from his house without meal. So he bitterly felt  his misfortune of sin and fasted, vowing that he would  take  his meal only of the  same Vyakti would appear at his house and take his meal there.  Two days later, that  same figure appeared and soothed  his feelings and mine.  He   was given his  meal and then we all felt relief. This was a strange figure not previously  seen in his village. There  is a Moslem  saint who  lives in a far off village  and who visits Vajrakarur (3  miles off) where  he has Hindu Moslem followers  to whom  he gives respective Hindu Mantras  and Moslem texts and delivers  philosophical lectures on new moon  daays. The figure that  appeared at our village was  not that saint, and unknown .

Baba's Miracle!

I was stuck with a job in a Government institution for the past two decades. Not that I did not make attempts to switch jobs. Somehow, I never succeeded, partially because I had never made a serious attempt at an opportune time. I had almost resigned myself to the monotonous job, which offered no satisfaction, though I had risen to a senior level. I got into Sri Saibaba worship and belief some time ago (since 1991) and have completed many rounds of Sri Sai Satcharitha parayana. However, over the years, as my dissatisfaction with the job grew, my wife and I prayed more deeply to Baba for a job change. Considering my age and low level of self-confidence in switching to a private company job, I was wondering as to how that would be possible. But for Samartha Sadguru Sai Baba, nothing is impossible. He first offered me an opportunity to work in a US-based company (incidentally, my years of experience does not suit IT jobs) where the work is related to my earlier job. It is here that Baba's miracle worked. Not only was I able to learn the analysis package (totally new to me) easily, but also able to work directly on an on-going project and prove myself within a short span of two months.

The Managing Director here and the higher- ups in US were satisfied to offer me a job right away, without even a formal interview! For me, this is nothing short of a miracle! As promised to Him, I am sharing this experience with Sai devotees through this newsletter, which I read regularly. Looking back, I felt Baba's presence with me every moment that I worked these two months, guiding me all along. Now, in this short period, Baba filled me with all the confidence which I had lacked all these years, and now I am sure that, with His constant guidance and grace, I can make up for all the lost years and make quick progress in the new job, which I find very interesting. Believe me, I never felt any fear while voluntarily retiring from a secure Government job. I bow to Sri Sainath's lotus feet in gratitude, and pray that He guide me so that I sincerely dedicate myself to my new job and make progress.

Sumathi
I come from a poor family and when I was studying twelfth grade I was unable to concentrate in my studies especially math due to various problems in family. I was crying one day in the classroom for getting lower marks in math in my first midterm test and I was just praying Sai to help me concentrate more on my studies. One of my teachers was watching me crying, called and asked me to go for math tuition. I said I did not have enough money to pay for the fees and how will I pay for the tuition. He thought for a minute and he said that I need not pay the tuition fees and asked me to join the tuition class, which he was conducting. I hesitated first, I did not go for the first two classes but then through another friend of mine he asked me to join tuition class. My parents also suggested me to join the tuition class and my father said that somehow he will get the money for paying the fees. But the teacher came to my home and told my father that he requires no fees at all. I started to attend the tuition .The teacher didn't restrict me only to the math but he also made sure that I was taught physics and chemistry at his home by the other teachers. Until the examination, I was made to practice well. I attended all the classes completely free of cost even for the entrance. When the examination started, I prayed to Sai fervently. These were the words "Baba, You know that I am not rich enough to pay all the tuition fees. The only way I can show my gratefulness is by scoring a centum in math. I shall prepare well for the exams but be with me and bless me to make it". I wrote my exams well. When the results came, I was surprised to hear that I was the only centum scorer in math in the whole school. My tuition teacher was very happy about it. I could not believe my ears. I was awarded a silver cup for scoring the centum. I met my teacher thanked him for his support and I got an admission into the Engineering college as well.

Two years ago I went to my Eye doctor for my routine checkup and the nurse kept doing so many tests that I had some doubts something was wrong. After that, the doctor came and told me that I was a Glaucoma suspect and that my eyesight could start becoming poor in another couple of years. The optic nerve was damaged up to 55 percent, which was very rare in young people and I did not have eye pressure, which was common in glaucoma patients. We really did not know the reason for the damage. He then put me on some eye drops and told me to come every 3 months for regular checkup. I started my treatment but was so worried about my future, my husband and kids. I kept praying to God that I should not lose my full sight until I lived. Then I came across this Sai Vichaar website site and started reading all the miracles in the devotees lives. Then I started praying to Sai Baba that at least He should preserve the cells in the optic nerve that was remaining so that my eyesight will not become very bad. I started visiting the doctor every 3 months and was taking all the treatment they prescribed. After 18 months, the doctor said he is going to check how much damage has been done in this time of treatment. So I prayed to Sai Baba that if the damage has not increased anymore I will post my experience in this website. Then the doctor did all the tests and told me that the damage has not increased in optic nerve and I don't need drops any more and I can come next year for my checkup. I immediately went to Sai temple from the doctor's clinic and offered my thanks to Him. I just want to tell that everyone should have faith and patience in God in time of trials.

There are not one but too many Sai miracles in my life. To mention a
few. The first time I started believing in Sai, I prayed to Him that if
he is really my Lord, He should take me to Shirdi once, but there was
no chance of going to Shirdi as there was no one to take me. To my
surprise, within a weeks time I was in Shirdi. Then I started believing
in Him and also that miracles happen in life. My father who doesn't
send me even to my relative's house alone has consented to send me to
Shirdi with not that close friend. She is my best friend now, just
because she is also a Sai devotee and it is because of her that I
believed in Sai. Since then there were endless miracles happening in my
life every now and then. I tasted all my successes on Thursday...Baba's
day.
The first of them was Biotechnology exam in first year of my
graduation. I wrote it so bad and I thought would definitely fail. I
cried on the day I wrote the exam, I ripped off the book in which I
write my poems and felt that my life is worthless because I spent so
much money on my course. I was sure that I would fail. Not only me, but
also most of my friends had the same experience in that exam. Some gave
blank paper and walked out. Some complained that it was not the
questions were not from their syllabus, but I kept on praying God till
the day I received the results. When our lecturer was reading out the
numbers, we were literally panicking because so many of them failed.
But our numbers were announced at last and the interesting thing was
that it happened on a Thursday, and to symbolize his presence, Baba
sent a rain for 5 minutes on that hot and dry day (first week of June).
Is this not a miracle?

I would like to share my first experience with all the devotees. In 1992, I was trying for opportunities in the Gulf countries through known people. One day my father was asked me to visit his friend, who is staying other side of city so that I will get some help from him. One fine day I thought I would visit him today and handover my documents to him. I got into bus and got down at Secunderabad to catch other bus. Suddenly I realized I need to take photocopies for some of the documents and went to nearby shop and taken the photocopies and taken bus to visit my father's friend. I have given all my documents and returned home. After a month or so my mother was cleaning up my Almairah (Wardrobe) and found out my passport was missing. She asked me immediately and I do not have any clue about that. After thinking a lot, I realized I might have forgotten my passport in the Photocopier shop. As I was just started praying baba and visiting his temple. As I heard if we leave our favorite food then we can see the results in no time. Immediately I went to pooja room and prayed to Baba that I would stop eating Non-vegetarian food on Thursday. Its almost a month and I'm trying different ways to get the duplicate passport. One fine day, my father received a post card and surprisingly the post card was from photocopier shop. He asked us to come and collect the passport. My father immediately rushed to the shop and collected passport. When I returned home, I came to know this and I was totally amazed and felt very happy. From that day onwards I am praying Baba with more devotion. Sai, my humble sashtanga namaskaras to You.

My humble salutations to my Lord Sai. Baba, my only prayer is to beg You to bless the whole world. Let the world rest in peace, happiness and devotion towards the divine. Let Your mercy rule over the world; let Your feet become the sole essence of our meditation. Let human birth remain a boon on this earth plane. I would like to convey my heart through my dream about Sai. There were few people in a big hall and I was sitting alone to a side. There I saw one old person walking around and speaking to a few. I thought to myself- Is that Shirdi Baba? If so, He would definitely bless me with His presence near me. Lo, as these thoughts crossed my little mind, Baba in no time approached me and I placed my hands on His divine feet and prayed within twice- 'Lokaa samastaa sukhino bhavantu.' Then Baba was about to leave but looked at me again with eyes full of grace, being full of pure love. He looked at me as if He was asking if I wanted anything. I looked into His eyes and said- 'Baba, andarnee challagaa choodandi'- meaning to say- Look upon all with mercy. His eyes seemed as if He was to grant me that boon as His feet made a move.

Baba - A Successful Physician (May 1984)

It is said that whosoever puts his feet on the soil of Shirdi his sufferings
would come to an end. This universal fact was experienced very recently by
us.

Dear readers, my wife had been suffering from throat trouble for the last
many years. It started as an ordinary 'cough & cold' problem; but it went on
increasing day by day inspite of usual medical treatment. During my service
as a pay & Accounts Officer in the Central Excise, Indore, I consulted many
physicians of repute but there was hardly any improvement. At time she was
very miserable when she could not even eat or drink properly.

Apart from the treatment from   various doctors, she had to take many
precautionary   steps like avoiding quite a large number food items.

Recently, when we had the invitation to attend the Annual Gathering of
Writers   at Shirdi,   we were in a fix whether to go or not due to her
ailment.    It, however,  appears that Baba issued latent instructions   to
my   wife,   who suddenly   insisted that we must attend despite her
problem.    Immediately after we reached the pious city of Shirdi, both of
us presented ourselves before the lotus feet of Sai Baba   and   submitted
our prayer to Him to rid her of her long suffering.

Dear readers, you will be glad to know that before leaving Shirdi after the
'Summelcn,1 surprisingly, my wife felt that had no throat trouble at all.
Lest it should be only a temporary relief, we did not mention it to anybody
then and there. Will the passage of so many days now, we are able to openly
tell that she has completely recovered from her long outstanding throat
trouble. Not only that, she has since given up the various precautionary
steps and is able to take anything she normal likes to take.

The   miraculous   recovery   is simply  on account of   Baba super-human
powers as a successful physician,

Hello Sai Devotees,



Om Sai Shri Sai Jai Jai Sai



I want to share my experience with all the Sai Devotees. My name is Subash. I am 25 years old. From past 1 year I was suffering from severe stomach pain and I also had kidney stone problem. I had no peace of mind. I was not able to sleep at night. I was not able to concentrate on my work. The pain was very severe and I could not tolerate the pain. I had consulted nearly 10 famous doctors. It did not help me. I was not knowing what to do. I am a Sai bhakta since 6 years. I started to pray to Sai to help me out. At the same time while I was browsing the net, I came upon this site. I was very happy when I read the devotees experiences. My bhatki increased towards sai and I realised that it is only SAI (my God, my friend) who can help me. From that day onwards I started reading the miracles of baba and the experiences of the devotees. It helped me alot. By the grace of baba my pain reduced and within a month I was completely fine. I could not believe it. It is a miracle of SAI, which I have experienced myself. I have no words to explain my joy and happiness. Now, I am very happy. I and my family members are grateful to SAI. Last month I and my family members visited Shirdi (first time) to receive Baba's blessings and by the grace of SAI I and my family members are experiencing the miracles regularly. Om Sai Ram. O Mere Sai sometime you are very near to me and sometime You are too far. Why? I know I am wrong, I am still not able to devote much time for your Pooja, but still I am your child. Do punish me for the mistake I committed in my life, and still committing. I have surrendered myself to 'shree Sai Charano par'. Give me your love and affection which I need badly. Please be with me and my family always, everywhere, everytime, in my happiness and sorrow. Om Shri Sai. I am a regular visitor to this site. I am very grateful to the team for providing the devotees of baba this beautiful site. I request you to inform me regularly about your activities and any information about baba. Thank you for giving me an opportunity to share my experience and feelings with all the SAI DEVOTEES.



Give peace and happiness to one and all.

Subject: MY DAD'S BIRTHDAY – SAI WITH CHILDREN

Date: Wed, 17 Oct 2001 18:48:10 -0500

My dad's 60th birthday was last Saturday. My mom and I gave him the surprise of celebrating it for him at a girls' public school. He loved it. We took sandwiches, which were really good; soda, and a big cake. Our guest list (the girls) was supposed to be of 60 girls, but since it was raining and some have to come from other towns, not all showed up. But, anyways, we served the sandwiches. My big brother helped with the drinks while my dad listened to the school band play, which was made up of about six or seven girls who played really good. Even my 4year old niece got in to the fun of service. She expressfully enjoyed handing out bon-bon candies.

At the beggining my mom and I, especially I, were a bit confused About the environment. Of course, it was not what we expected it, or the image we'd craeted of it in our minds. We expected a bigger number of young girls but most of them were adolescents. The actual phrase in my mind is: "I expected more innosence". We'd brought toys to give away as prizes after a few games. But we didn't have any games. My mom is holding the toys to give away in another instance. To be honest, at the beggining I was a bit dissappointed because it wasn't what I expected. But I knew BABA had a purpose for it. So I went along. And when I least expected it,

I was having one of the most astoundingly memorable moments of my life.

I was running around to get more sandwiches, helping with the drinks, and cleaning up before we left.

And of course, I felt HIS presence so intensely, I even thought He was there physically. But it was a woman who was the mother of two of the children at the party. But, physically she looked very much like BAGHAVAN SRI SATHYA SAI BABA. She had brown skin, dark, thick hair, and even That passionate look in her dark eyes. And she even seemed to enjoy it more than the children. And both times I approached her to bring her a drink and a piece of cake, I could feel a peacefullness and a puriyfied happiness emanating from her so strong it "swung" me. Again, of course, it was BABA's action. I didn't and haven't mentioned this to anyone yet. I'm afraid of getting an unconvinced reply or just not the one I would expect to hear. To bad we weren't able to take any pictures to show you. I would've loved to. I wanted clowns and a big thing as I'd told you, but my mom couldn't afford all that I had in mind, much less I. But I sure am looking

forward for my birthday. It's going to be a ball. Just like the one

I picturein my mind.



Nontheless, I had a wonderfully lovely time. What I liked most about the whole idea is that my dad really enjoyed it. I could not only see it in his smiling face, but his eyes shone a brightull happinness and satisfaction. He said that he didn't really like those loud dinner parties at home, and never really knew how to celebrate it. I'd told him about your idea with which he agreed upon. But he never suspected the surprise party. I loved it! I HAD A GREAT TIME! MY DAD LOVED IT. HE HAD A

GREAT A GREAT TIME!



THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

Respected Bhagwan



I am really at a loss for words to describe about HIS Divine Personality which is unfathomable.Quite a few incidents in my life made me look up to THE DIVINE FATHER and exclaim 'You are indeed a saviour for humanity'.A few years back I lost my ATM card along with the pin number written on a piece of paper.After two days I realised that an amount of Singapore dollars 1000/- was withdrawn from my account.A thought just flashed across that Bhagwan Shirdi Sai would probably do the needful to salvage me from the crisis.After a week or so,much to my surprise I received a call from one of the bank officers that the amount was deposited back to my account.Well,this is a miracle which is beyond human rationale.As a matter of thanksgiving I visited Shirdi last year.Likewise I got through my engineering exams about 12 years back with the grace of SAI,despite my average performance.After all HE is the cosmic examiner auditing our thoughts and faith and knows what is to be done when.Nothing is impossible for Lord SAI.About 4 weeks back I appeared for my last Oracle certification exam and got through with HIS Grace.The day prior to the exam, I opened the Sai Satcharit in a very tensed mood only to read about SAI comforting a student that he would secure a pass notwithstanding the astrological predictions working against him.It was indeed a tremendous source of relief and I was confident that HE would guide me through the exam.True to HIS reputation of being 'Apathbandhava' he made me get through with the exact passmark!I got choked with emotion.I do pray that SAI would have the entire humanity in HIS fold so that the world would be a wonderful place to live in.



OM SAI RAM Your child S.Sounderrajan



Nita Patel, New Jersery

Dear Sai bhaktas,

We have been strong believer of baba since last three years. I am basically from Nairobi, Kenya. As the matter of curiosity, me and my husband thought of applying for visas to USA. In July one fine day we called up the embassy to fix and appointment for interview, we got the appointment fixed on August 18, 2000. As 18 = 1+8 = 9 being a significant number I had confidence we will go thru it. We had to prepare paper work for an interview, we were suppose to give strong proof of our ties in Kenya, good finanacial background. Since me and my husband were working, and had responsibilities of two girls , my daughters, The savings were not that much to make them confident. But we had strong background of place where we both were working. We prepared the necessary paperwork, I started reading Sai Satcharitra the week before so that I can finish and go for an interview. I finished reading on Tuesday and Wednesday morning we had to go for an interview. We had left everything on baba saying "YOU KNOW WHAT IS GOOD FOR US". As we reached the embassy, there was a long queue.., and in that queue I saw a person who seems to be of Arab origin, but the clothes he had put on were white kurtan with white turban and had long white beard, when I was chanting sai sai he just turned around and I could see baba in him. As our number came …One of officer who was checking all the paperwork, as per attached to the form, and there was one section mentioned …if children are below certain age no photographs are required , so we didn’t take any pictures of girls. She told us to go and get them done at he near mall and be back before 10.00. As it was early morning 8.00 and the malls open at 9.30 . We had to go and wait till the mall opens we tried other places also they were closed. After taking the pictures of girls we returned to embassy , just thinking why is this happening ? When we reached it was nearly 9.50 somewhere. And there were few ppl ahead of us in that line, for interview. We were called . Me and my girls were chanting baba’s name, having a baba’s key chain in my hand. As the officer was going thru papers, he just asked what were we working as and spoke to girls nicely and there he said go to other window pay your fees and get the passport next day. SAI RAM was the words came out of me and my husbands mouth. and i couldn’t believe it. The Officer didn’t even go thru the bank statements. We paid the fees and we were silent all the way to our home and went straight to my mandir and bowed before him, and due to him we safely reached USA without any trouble. Since then me and my family have become more believer in Baba, he has been there when ever we called him. MAY SAI BLESS YOU ALL

I had a recent experience which made my belif stronger that saibaba will take care of me and help me in any situation. recently I got a new assignment and joined this new company for software consulting. The client had a problem and he wanted me to fix it. And I had never worked on that software product before. Besides there was no manuals available for that. And being new in the company I hardly knew anybody there. So I just prayed to saibaba and thought that he will take care of my problem. And within minutes I met this guy thru a my only friend there who had worked on this software before and he helped me and explained me how this was supposed to work. After which I could fix this problem very easily. And wouldn't you know at his desk was a picture of sai baba. Now some of you might say 'hey thatz just a co-incidence'. But I believe that there's god (saibaba) who takes care of me and helps me out in every problem in my life. And I am always very relaxed and happy because of THEE.

Baba is great.....He has made THE DIFFERENCE in my life! I was introduced to Baba by a friend (unfortunately who is no more now). Ever since I have to come to know Baba I have received numerous blessings for me and my family. His ways, though mysterious, are simple wonderful. Till today, I can proudly say that Baba is my everything, my all, the air I breathe, my substance and my life! No one can take His place. My day does not start on a good note if I do not go to His Mandir and touch His Beatiful Lotus Feet! Every evening I must go and thank Him for all His blessings for a good day if not I feel very guilty and miserable. I just want to thank my friend who passed away and who I know is now with Baba for her love and affection and for showing me the path to the truth. May Baba shower His blessings on all other devotees who so lovingly follow His path and I only ask for Baba to help me to continue to look to Him for guidance in life.......to be a good, pure person, an example of all goodness and truth in my family.

OM SAI RAM!

I first visited aling with my family in the year 1993.That was my first my experience in my life although I had several experiences.One of my family friend had advised us to read Sai Charita.I bought the book and started the parayana.I finished my degree final yr exams and my results were out but to my suprise I was failed in one subjuct.But I did not loose heart and had all my hopes on baba.I applied for the revaluation and paid Rs 100.But after a feww days I got a regisered letter from the university saying that I have to pay other 100rs.Seeing this I have enquired my about they sataus but they said they did not receive any letter.I paid the 100rs.Ater a month as soon as I completed the parayana I got my result positively.From that time onwards what ever I do I just think if baba.My entire family are devoted to him.He is the only person whom we believe in.Now Iam working as Programmer at hyd.





Dear Sai bandhus

It was a very wonderful day for all of us. I wanted to specially thank you and Sai Nath for one interesting experience, which I would like to share with you.

You are aware that for about 5 minutes, "Om Sai Sri Sai Jaya Jaya Sai" chanting was done under the leadership of Shri Shankaraiah garu. As is my habit, I closed my eyes during the chanting (just like I closed my eyes during the singing of Endaro Mahanubhavulu). I was seeing Sai as Maharaj, i.e. with the crown etc. as seated in Shirdi, when my eyes are closed, whereas when I opened them in between, I was seeing Him as a Fakir, seated on a stone.

I bow in reverence to Sri Sai Maharaj.

In Sai's service,

Sri Ambatipudi Ramachandra Sarma Garu ,Aged 78 was my teacher, guide and philosopher. He was an exponent in Karnatak music and a vedic scholor. He spent his whole life teaching classical music and practising Brahma Vidya. He was an Apara Parigrahi throughout his life that is he never accepted any alms and gifts from any person ,and also never kept food materials morethan required for the day or two. He had such great faith in the Almighty and never thought of future requirements or past and present deficiency. He was a simple ,cheerful and pious person.I observed always as Nitya Santhusti and Nitya Annandi. He had great respect and reverence for Shiridi Sai whom he treated him as a Brahna Rishi always.He used to explain me how SaiBaba practiced pure Advaitic Philosophy and his Adi Brahma qualities.

Sri Sarma Garu left his body in the early January 2000 and left me ,his wife and daughter in deep shock. After this , one day I discussed this problem of my late teacher's family with Saibanisa of http://www.saidarbar.com and to render help to them. Saibanisa felt that such pious and needy family should be helped and held Lord Sai shall to their rescue and prayed for help.

To my surprise within two days there was a message from Sri Vijayanand K.P. of U.A.E to Saibanisa that he was willing to spend some amount for a good cause.With Sai's Grace and Saibandhu Vijayanand's good intension , my late teacher's got good succour for few months.

This is in 1995 when we returned to India after my husband's assainment in US. I was in Bombay. I had some health problems and I was going some medical treatment. One day I saw two small lumps on BABA's picture on his lips. I was so scared and I don't what he wants to say to me. After couple of days my doctor told me that I am pregnent and I have a firoid. I have to have bed rest for whole 9 months. You cann't believe that Baba himself carried my baby and fibroid. After my delievery I did not see those lumps on his lips. Whole 9 months he was there with me every second and took care of me. Even now he is taking care of me. I believe in him so much. He always helps me in my life.

OM SAIRAM to all.

Dearest friends,

Baba has been with me in every walk of life, and has made this life a dream for me. However, we should never ever forget that if Baba has made us so capable and prosperous, the least we can do is abide by His teachings. I sometimes fail to practice

BABA's beautiful teachings, but BABA has still never been harsh, and has lovingly but firmly let me know what He thinks. I wish to narrate something with regard to this. There is someone who lives in the same area as me, and this person is also from India,like me. She is living alone for the first time and keeps asking for smallest favours and directions etc, from everyone, and help as well. Many a time she is so scared about things that she becomes very insistent and disregards others' inconveniences. She is a sweet person but this childish trait has alienated her from a lot of people. Or maybe it is my and others intolerance which views it as such. However, day before yesterday she asked me to do somethings for her. I was with a friend and I got irritated as she kept insisting, and I just wanted to wash my hands off the matter. She asked my friend too about some help etc and just to hide my embarrassment (I did not want my non-Indian friend to think badly of Indians) scarcely had this person left us I whispered to my friend 'she is a bit crazy!' I felt terrible about it too, as all along a voice kept saying within me what BABA says about 'Rinanubandh', that someone comes to you only if they are attached to you from the past birth and so please speak obligingly and be kind even if you can't ob!

lige. I failed to observe this. That nite, I got a dream. I saw a beautiful image of Lord Krishna, and He was telling me, I will go to someone else as you don't love me. I saw an identical Lord Krishna standing next to me, who was silent. I then saw BABA and BABA told me, you love me in my form but you should also love me in all other forms. BABA said this to me in Hindi. Then I saw that I was putting vibhuti on the forehead of this person whom I had refused help and about whom I was contemptuous. I need not explain the meaning of this dream to enlightened souls like you all,but still, it meant, BABA exists in everyone, so help everyone in every way you can and if you can't then at least don't make fun of them. I called up the person in question the very next morning, and made up. I also recalled with a shock that I had not put vibhuti on her forehead when she had come to my place. I was full of remorse. I called her and put vibhuti and thanked BABA for this beautiful lesson. !

I am so grateful to BABA and I pray to BABA desperately to always help me remember His teachings. Sorry for taking your time, God bless you all.

Lots of love

I have many experiences of being blessed by shri shirdi sai baba and the latest one is that though i visited shirdi in december 99 and had the fortune of being at His shrine on the vaikunda ekadasi day, i did not have the fortune of seeing the chavadi procession on thursday as my visit was on a saturday. i was longing for it and praying to Him and was also praying to Him for getting me a good job. i recently started reading sai satcharitra three times continuosly and when i finished the first reading on this wednesday, the 17th may 2000, and did satya narayana vrata pooja on the next day which happened to be a pournami day, i suddenly got an inspiration to visit a murugan temple near our place with my whole family. it happened to be vaikasi visakam day and to our utter surprise the murugan idol was carried in a procession round the temple and with the dances and music and all rites. i could close my sees and when i closed it i could see my favourite deity sai baba being taken in a procession as it used to happen just when he was alive. it is a great blessing for us and i am now in the second reading. i have full confidence in my baba that by the time i finish the third reading i will get some good news on my job front and my son's education front. thank you baba. may your feet be always in my mind.

"Someone asked the Prophet, "who has the greater right over children, mother or the father?" The Holy Prophet answered, "The mother's right is greater than the father's". He was asked the question three times and the answer was still the same. The fourth time, the Prophet elaborated and said,

"The father's right is next"

"Why do you give the mother three rights to the father's one right?" The Prophet replied, "Your mother carried you for nine months in her womb, then gave you birth. After that she gave up her sleep for you, suckled you,carried you in her arms, and cleaned you. For years she cooked for you,fed and served you food. She did your laundry. When you were forty, fifty, sixty she still followed your progress with interest. Your father sowed you in your mother's womb, provided your food and made sure you had clothes to wear Can this be compared with your mother's role? The questioner went on, "Well, I wonder if I could ever repay my mother for all the help and service, however much I might do for her?" The Prophet replied," you could not repay as much as one nights due!" "But suppose I carry my mother on my back for years, clean up after her, cook for her, and feed her. Suppose I attend those same services as long as she may live?"



"There will still be this difference between you: your mother looked out for you to live, while you are waiting for her to die.""

I started reading the parayana book, after just two weeks , I have got the project bcoz of premamurthy shiridisaibaba. when I Started beleiving saibaba everything is happening with success. Iam still continuing parayana sravanam.

I want to list my most recent experience. I went for canadian immigration interview in detroit with all of my documents, I got through it. I have returned home happely, after four days I have checked my certificates, I was missing my folder in which I have got my SSN, my wife tax-id. some school certificates, immigrations papers and bank statements. I Prayed our 'Saibaba' through out the night with tears. In the morning I called some of the places fourtunately with sai grace I have got my folder back.

I am very happy now, since I have started praying baba, drastic changes are happening in my life. I want to continue my prayer for ever.

I don't know which one to narrate , there are so many , some we notice, some we don't , Baba some times , gives us what we need , because he knows we deserve it, some times he doesn't , because he knows , we should get some thing better.

One of my experience was , My wedding was on the 25th of Nov 1998 I was in madras on the 12th I think and my fiancy was there on the 15 th from USA , I had told him that he should take me to the Sathya sai Temple in madras on the 23rd of nov as it was his birthday , (But my fiancy was not a

sathya sai believer but he has a strong belive in shirdi sai I am sure that one day he will know , that sathya sai is none but shirdi sai) He didn't take me , and I didn't force him to as he was also very busy , But I was always wanting to go to his temple.

My brother came from bombay on the 24th nov for my wedding and that was my engagment day , He gave me a cover and said that muralidharan uncle asked me to give this to you. and when I opened it , I knew it was a greeting card for my wedding , but to my sur prise , there was a Baba's (sathya sai baba's) photo also with that. I was so happy and , I baba blessed me that way during my wedding. Then I told my husband after our marriage , that you didn't take me to meet HIm , see but HE came to me, HE gave me darshan.

Sai baba is always around you , and some times we don't realease it. BABA bless every one on this earth. My koti koti pranams to my Dear father sai baba

I want to share with you all this experience.

Two weeks back after i come back from work, i started feeling chest pain. after half an hour i couldn't bear the pain. I told my wife iam retiring to bed early. I don't want to go hospital. I know our guru is inside of me. I told my self since sai baba is in my soul i should not fear. Pain got aggravated and started closing my eyes. after 5 minutes BABA (Baba photo in CHAVADI) coming out my heart. after that i don't know anything. Next day Morning i am as good as new.

I want to share another experience of mine(actually my wife's) which happened a few days back which increased my faith and love for Baba Sai many folds. I believe that it is sai who showed myself and my wife another leela of his. Ofcourse, I do believe that baba is always with me and takes care of me and my wife (everyone as a matter of fact) but incidents like this make things more clear for people like us. Myself and my wife believe in sai to the max and meditate on him whenever and whereever needed. Jus recently we started giving sai arathi after reading some text from Satcharita. We have made it a routine to do so. One night as we were about to sleep, my wife who forgot to get some water went to the kitchen to get some. I usually ask her to switch on the light but somehow that night she did not. As she was about to enter the kitchen (she was about to put her leg) in the darkness...she heard a voice which said "switch on the light now, there's a glass piece" and automatically, maybe in the shock as if someone lifted her hand up she put on the light. To her shock, she found a glass piece standing up. She was zapped and was puzzled...had she put her leg down, the glass piece would have cut her leg. For a while she was trying to figure out what that voice was and from where it came. She came to the bedroom where I was and informed me about what happened. I had no words to say...my hair standing on the end and with a strange feeling. After a while we both thought that Baba had protected her and felt great for we knew Baba was around us. It was a great feeling. She told me that a few days back a glass bottle broke and thou she cleaned the place a couple of times, this piece was somehow left out. Maybe we should thank the glass piece or something else for atleast she heard Baba's voice and we got our faith and love increased. I have no doubt that baba is protecting us...we jus need to have faith and confidence in him.

As Baba always says....Shraddha and Saburi. Immediately we gave Baba arathi and some sweet(sugar) and thanked him for his care and love towards his devotees.

Bow to Sri Sai...Peace be to all.

Post by: Dipika on March 20, 2006, 04:23:01 AM
I feel quiet fortunate to have found this site when casually surfing the net...thanks to my Baba Sai. After reading through some great experiences of devotees I thought I should share mine too. This is a good experience of mine on how Baba helps us out when we are in trouble. It is that firm faith we need to have on him that will help us cross those hurdles...and sometimes miracles do happen depending on our belief. I believed in Baba but somehow when it comes to real incidents, it was hard for me to convince myself. It dates back to 1993 when I jus finished my engineering(and was going to Australia for further studies) and had gone to collect my provisional certificate. I had been to my college and spent sometime after collecting my certificate with my friends who were still there. We had a good time celebrating and having parties. I had calculated my finances well and once I received my certificate, I had to go Bangalore to the University to get my certificate signed by the registrar. This part is a bit tricky as we need to pay some money to the clerk who works and who takes the certificate to the registrar to get it signed. I did what was required and once the work was done I decided to go back to my place (hyderabad). I reached the bus station at about 6:00 pm and stood in the queue to get my ticket for the next bus which is at 6:30pm. There are buses that go from bangalore to hyderabad every half an hour. I took out my wallet to get some money to buy the ticket which costs about Rs120 (as far as I remember).

To my shock I realised that I had only Rs100 and was short of Rs20 and did not know what to do. I was very confused and was stuck. I came out of the queue with the hope of finding someone I know so that I can borrow some money. I was also contemplating as to how I could make such mistakes and was not able to believe that I overshot my expenses. I was cursing myself for the situation as I waited for the next 2 hours to see someone. I even searched my hand luggage in the hope of finding some money which I may have slipped in by mistake. Fat hope...I could not even find a penny. I could not see anyone too whom I know and the person who issues the tickets informed that the last bus is at 9:30 pm and that it was getting full. It was already 8:45 or 9:00pm and I had no hope of reaching Hyderabad. I had to reach Hyderabad the next morning so that I could submit my certificate along with the other papers for Australian Universities. I was then suddenly reminded of my Baba and prayed to help me out of this situation. I uttered the two assuring words "Sai Sai"...and asked his help. I waited for the next ten minutes not expecting anything to happen in such a short time. Then suddenly something was telling me, asking me to check my bag again. I was sure i had nothing but still casually I reached my handbag ...atleast to grab something to munch and while trying to find it something touched my hand. What I could feel was that it was something like paper as I could get that crisp sound of paper. I peeped into my bag and to my great joy I found Rs.50 in it. I was both overjoyed and thrilled and ofcourse confused. I got my ticket ... there were only about 2-3 seats left and reached Hyderabad safely on time to do my other stuff. But what I still could not answer was how that Rs50 slipped into my handbag. It is certainly not that I may have kept it by mistake and was sure because I searched my luggage twice. Well, wha t I can say is that it is Baba who had helped me out of such a situation...who else can help me except the all pervasive Sainath. The two words "Sai Sai" did the magic and it is my firm belief that baba will respond when anyone utteres these words. Now, 7 years on the run I believe in baba more than myself.

BOW TO SRI SAI...PEACE BE TO ALL.

KULDEEP AGRAWAL



I always wanted to share my wonderful experience/(s) of Baba's divine Grace and is kindness on creatures like me,who(honestly speaking)never took Baba's mnipresence and kindness seriously,before I went through the experience,which I am going to share with you all and it is decribed as below:

About a year ago(or may be slightly more),a programme named `PRARTHANA'compered by singer MANHAR UDAS used to come on Door Darshan early morning at about 6'0 Clock,which was also discovered by me per chance,because,I,one morning after having got up early,finding nothing to do,switched on the TV and found this programme running.After playing one or two Bhajans of Baba's grace,the compere narrated experiences of some audience who had written the same to the programme/Door Darshan.This was being done right in the end of the programme,where Manahar would read out the letter and briefly describe the experience.This really fascinated me and I decided to watch this programme regularly every week and my faith(trust/belief) in Baba started getting stronger,of course never imagining that I would be able to go through a marvellous experience myself.

Just after a few days of start of this routine,which was going on well and uninterrupted,I got a notice from Income Tax department that my case has been selected for scrutiny,which,in normal course,upsets everyone and anyone,because of the hassels involved,even to the fairest Taxpayer,like me.Any way,as per the normal procedure,I submitted all the necessary information and documents and since there was not even a single point,where any hank-panky was detectable,there was hardly anything to be afraid of.However,in my returns,I was having a loan entry from one of my Brother-in-Laws,who,that time was a Colonel in the Army and whose signed confirmation was very essential to close the case.On checking with my cousin sister,I was informed that my Brother-in-Law,who has to sign the confirmation,was away with a specially deputed Army Team,who was to visit all the important Air Force Bases in the country and submit a Report to the Army Head Quarters.Since movements of this team were qu!

ite confidential,there was no way out,through which I could contact my Brother-in-law or at least could send him the papers by post and get the same signed,except to wait for his return(which was about a month away) or his call to his family from some intermediate station.Incidentally,this was very near to closing date of 31st march,by which,the ongoing cases are to be finalised by the officers,who are handling the case,otherwise,they go over to next financial year,by which time,lot of transfers of the officers take place.Now since this officer was an honest and fair person,it was my deep desire,that my case should be processed and closed,before this officer gets transferred,otherwise,new officer may create some new problems and the case would also get delayed accordingly.

Now since,I was watching the `PRARTHANA' programme,those days,I unknowingly,started praying and requesting Baba,that if YOU can help and do wonders for others,why not a small favour for a worthless creature like me also,as a gesture of your kindness and in order to inculcate my faith and belief in your kindness?And my dear Sai Bandhus!! Baba,heard my prayers and just the very moment,when I thought of BABA and his kindness,my cousing sister gave me a call at about 9'O Clock in the night that her husband(My Brother-in-Law),who was somewhere in Assam and who was overflying Delhi airport,had to suddenly change his programme,since their aircraft,while refuelling at Lucknow Airport had developed some snag due to which,they will have to Land at Delhi and while the snag will be rectified,which might take minimum two hours,he will be able to come home to see his family for a few minutes and then report back on duty,as per special permission granted by the Leading officer of the team,of!

which he was a member.My joy and gratitude to SAIBABA,knew no bounds,when I heard this and immediately rushed to my cousin sister's house in NOIDA(about 12 Kms from my place) at 10'O Clock in the night and saw my Brother-in-Law entering just about 5 minutes after I reached their house.I had taken the necessary papers duly prepared,which,my Brother-in-Law signed and just within about next 30/40 minutes,he left again to join back his team.

I think,by any imagination or coincidence,this kind of incident is impossible to happen,except only if the KIND AND GRACIOUS SOULS like SAIBABA,decide to answer one's prayers and bestow their kindness upon those who really believe in THEM.

As a resiprocal gesture of Gratitude,I,at the earliest next opportunity,paid my obeissance by having Darshans of SAIBABA at SHIRDI,alongwith my entire family,which was First time in my life of nearly 50 years.

I think and hope to go for Darshans of SAIBABA very soon and would urge to all those,who believe in HIM,must pray and,whenever possible must visit Shirdi,which,probably,is one of the most pious places on this earth.

I SAW BABA

IT WAS IN 1994,NOV. One day I was travelling buy bus from vidyanagar to Nellore. I was reading a book written by master Ekkirala Bharadwaja named "SAI SANNIDHI". The bus reached gudur and it was halting there for five minuites. At that time a middle aged man wearing an old lungi and shirt approached my window and asked me to give ten paise . He asked me in hindi stating "MUJHE DAS PAISE DO". At the first instance I waved him away but after a few seconds I thought that I should give him ten paise.I searched for ten paise but could not get one. Instead I paid him fifty paise coin. He took it and looked at it like a mad man for sometime and then tossed it and then gave it to me and said that he didn't want fifty but ten only. I searched for that but I could not get. Meanwhile the bus started and was going away. At that time an idea flashed and I searched for that man. But the man disappeared and I firmly believe that he is none other than baba. I kept t! hat coin in my pocket for a long time. When I started to shirdi for the first time there was problem with change. Unknowingly I paid that coin at the ticket counter. From that day onwards till today (ie.,03.02.2000) I never found that man in gudur busstand.

I am interested in collecting the devotees experiences. If anybody is willing to share their experiences with me they can send them to the following email address.

Dear Sai brethren,

I have been wanting to write about my experience since a long time and am now doing so through my sister. Me and all my family are great devotees of Sai Baba and I often visit the Sai temple close to my home whenever I can, especially on Thursdays. I live at Pune and so does another of my sisters. Her elder child, a son was trying very hard to get into the merchant navy and also underwent the mandatory training and exams. He was successful and was waiting for the call from one of the shipping companies. His mother was naturally worried as his birthday was nearing and after that there would be absolutely no chances of him getting a breakthrough as he would be over-age. I could not bear the tension this was causing her and all of us and so I prayed hard to our Sainath that some miracle should take place soon as there was just a week for his birthday. I also had vowed that I would offer sheera as prasad and a shawl to the Sai temple near my home. Anyway I visited the temple that day itself and prayed hard again. It was really a great miracle of our Sainath that my nephew got a call the next day itself to join the ship. Our joy knew no bounds when we heard this. I then fulfilled the vow I had undertaken. My nephew has been working very well since then in a good shipping company and is doing very well. This is about 18 months ago and I am sorry for writing about it so late. All I want to say is a big Thank You to our Sai Baba and I must say to all my brethren that He really tests us to the limit sometimes before listening to our prayers. He just wants us to have faith in Him and patience.

Om Sai Ram.

I would like to share a recent experience. I appealed in one of my earlier mails that we had constructed a small Saibaba mandir in our colony a few years back to promote spiritual culture among our colonies. But due to unfortunate circumstances we were not able to run the activities attarcting more devotees. Our financial position is equally bad. But we decided to install the idol of Sri Dattatreya on the last Datta Jayanti on 21.12.1999 inspite of poor inflow of funds. We appealed to many but with little repsonse. When some of our members approached me to loan some amount for the function,I told that I would not like to loan, but will give what I wanted to contribute. But some devine power made me say that I will raise atleat Ra.5000/- through donations. I could not succeed in my efforts. On Datta Jayanti day we completed installationof the idol more than our expectations and to my surprise we had good number of devotees who donated generously. The biggest surprise is that we received from three overseas donors some contributions which none could understand till they shared with me. The amount collected was slightly more than Rs5000/-.These donations are following my earlier appeal in this mail. So Baba fulfilled my committment indirectly through these unknown donors. What more miracle is needed to prove his mercy on poor devotees who were helpless at one stage.

I want to share the saying of Baba " You look at me and I will surely look after you". Jai Sree Sairam.

I got married in December 1998 and flew with my husband(Raghu) to USA in the same month.I was a devotee of saibaba from a young age.As i got married,as any girl would dream of was entering a different phase of my life with lot of hopes in store for the future.Baba blessed me with a very good husband,not forgetting to mention the kind of husband I wanted.After reaching USA,my husband was on bench for almost 5 months,by the grace of Baba the company paid during the bench period.As my husband was in IBM/mainframes and as we all know the situation worsened during the time of june 98 when the software companies started sending people back to India.My husband was also told to go back to India and no assurance of job was given in India.The worst thing was my husband's H1 was expiring in Sept of 98 and mo companies came forward to take up the processing for H1. Lord Sai was always with us during the crisis.During this period myself and my husband would always spend time in websites such as www.saibaba.org /www.shirdisai.org and this particular website.As we share our experiences and pray to Baba telling about our problems in devotees corner ,we got to make friendship with lot of sai devotees who

were as kind as sai himself.They gave us a lot of encouragement and support.They gave us a renewed hope that we could do it and sai would assist us.This is the period during which our faith in sai grew and we

became close to Lord Sai.He is the most wonderful father who caters to all the needs of his children. What more do we want from SAI,my husband got an offer on gurupoornima Day.We were very happy.But there were still some bad deeds which we had done in the past,that after the offer we had to wait for 4months to be placed in a project.Finally,in the month of november my husband got a project and an offer for permanent position. Now we have come to such a belief in sai that we believe him to be the father for both of us and living with us and guiding us and supporting us.Every day when we consume our food we offer it to sai.My husband does even have a snack without offering to his dear father.We got a tremondous faith in Sai.As i am writing this i am feeling really over whelmed because i have been trying to post this experience since november and Baba made it possible today.I am really very happy today.

Hyderabad

I want to share my recent experience. Me, my wife and recently married elder daughter of ours were to travel by train to New Delhi. Purpose was for seeing off our elder daughter on her much awaited journey to US to join her husband and start the new phase of their lives. Unluckily my father-in-law fell ill and was hospitalised, resulting in my wife cancelling her journey.On the day of journey my daughter,with all her baggage, and self boarded 2 tier AC compartment of the trainat Hyderabad. As our berths were not co-located, I got down from the compartment seeking the Supervisor for exchange of berth, whereas my wife remained inside spending her last moments with our daughter before her departure. We didnt realise that time for departure of the train had come, the train started moving slowly, I looked and saw that my wife was not on the platform, ran towards the compartment and saw that my wife being scared of getting off from moving train sat on the steps. In my anxiety that she should get down and I should get in, I told her to hold on to me and pulled her on to the platform. We both fell down, I was closer to the platform edge and my legs from knees downwards entered the space between the platform and moving train. I froze realising that any movement may result in very serious injury and in that state of shock didnot even call out to GOD or any one else for help.In the meanwhile our daughter attempted to stop the train by pulling chain but without any success.Now a miracle occurred, in that Sathya Saibaba, whom I firmly believe to be incarnation of Shirdi Saibaba, in the form of unknown people appeared in no time and pulled me back simultaneously lifting my legs from the gap between the platform and moving train thus saving not only my life but also ensuring that I was not injured. I got up mmediately and shakily jumped into the compartment passing in front of me where safe handsof Railway staff caught hold of me.When I reached my compartment I found my daughter crying not knowing how her parents were. Luckily my wife had the presence of mind to take an autorikshaw and come to Secunderabad station.Our daughter calmed down after seeing both of us uninjured and safe.THIS INCIDENT PROVES THAT GOD IS ALWAYS WITH HIS DEVOTEES AND COMES TO THEIR RESCUE UNASKED. WHAT IS NEEDED IS TOTAL FAITH AND SURRENDER. I THANK SADGURU SAINATH FOR HIS GRACE AND PRAY

THAT HE USES ME AS A TOOL TO SERVE ALL.

Om sairam,

To dear Sai Bandhus,

Pranam at the lotus feet of Sadguru sai maharaj. I was happy to read the feature "sadhana" - a contribution by Mr. Vrindakumar. It is very true that "remembering Baba is very important. How one does so is immaterial". Constant remembering and or recitation of Baba's name fills the life with happiness & gives us more endurance power to bear the sufferings of our previous & present sins. The quality of being righteous comes automatically just by reciting the name "Sai.sai.sai". Therefore one must make it a practice of remembering Sai, our saviour. There are nine forms of bhakthi of which we can choose any one and remember HIM to our hearts content. Definitely, with in a short time one can see many changes in life & character of a man who recites the mystical name Sai. The word sai removes the fear of the samsara and fills one with some sort of magical strength in heart & mind. One gets detached from the world & its substances and longs to see the lord. Thus the remembrance of Sai Maharaj's name is the beginning of the journey to cross the ocean of Samsara. So one who wants to get rid of this world, the death & rebirth, has to recite the lords name & just remembering his name in whatever the manner one wishes

or in whatever the condition one worships HIM can easily attain THE SUPREME. With clarity of mind, Purity of heart & love towards Sai one can achieve his highest end (the Mukthi) very easily.

I wish to share one of my experiences.

I was forced by one of my friends who was taking part in a Competition. And due to him I started writing poetry and at the end of the work I remembered that I missed to begin my poetry with "om sai ram". I felt sorry and then I inserted "om sai ram" at the beginning of the poem. The result was that I was awarded the first prize of the first program due to HIS grace, which I never dreamt. I didn't know that my Sai is going to bless me this way for just merely remembering him at the end of the work. Imagine if HE can bless a man who hardly remembers HIM, then what about the people who always give priority of remembering the holy word Sai at the beginning of every work or action.? Bow to shri sai, peace be to all.

‘OM SAI RAM’

Dear sai devotees,

My name is p.g. suresh kumar. I am born and bought up in mumbai and basically i am a keralite. At present i am working in a private organisation. I am keenly intersted in music i, write many songs of lord shri sai baba, which is compused myself and i sing these songs in front of lord sai, with a hope to get any chance in some cassette company in future. I will share you with an incident of ‘ lord shri sai baba, which has recently occurred in my house. One glass laminated with lord sai baba’s image was lying in my house and it was placed at the dining table. Actually, it was kept to put and light the incense sticks. Nobody used to care for that image. It was kept idle.on the first day of shrawan mahina, i took that image and placed it in my cabin where i am working. Daily i used to light the incense sticks and read the ‘sai mahima book’ in front of lord sai. One day i requested one of my friend who used to go to shirdi frequently, to bring me the ‘udi’. But unfortunately, i was not in a position to get the same. After one week, one wednesday night an idea struck in my mind, why not to get some chandan from my home and place it before lord sai. After waking up on thursday morning, before going to office, i searched one empty box to keep the chandan. But unfortunately, i could not locate the same. Suddenly, my attention was drawn to the kitchen shelf, where i saw one small steel box. First i thought there might be something, but when i opened the box, to my utter surprise the box was containing full of udi. On receipt of the same, i thanked lord sai and i told myself and i was in need of ‘udi’ , lord sai gave me udi, without going to shirdi. This is not a miracle. Somebody might have kept that box in my house. But what i mean to say is that i was in need of udi, lord sai drew my attention towards that box. I took that udi box and placed it in front of lord sai’s image. Now daily, i am reading the ‘sai mahima’ and putting that ‘udi’ on my forehead. It is all the blessings of lord sai. Thanks for sharing this joy. God bless u all.

Om sai ram’ ‘om sai ram’ ‘om sai ram’

Naam tera mein letha hoon ho shirdi wale baba

Sabko darshan tu detha hain,

Mujkho darshan do baba,

Ram tuhi, rehman tuhi, tuhi hai gurunanak baba,

Sabko darshan tu detha hai, mujkho darshan do baba.

I thought of sharing my experiences but couldn’t have dared to share among friends. Now I got the chance to share through this web page. I have firm faith on BABA as He is fulfilling all my wishes and this is the way SHRI BABA is making my faith high. In

Satcharitra mentioned : BABA used to ask two paisa Dakshina from devotees that are SHRADDHA(firm faith) and SABURI(patience). BABA has taken from me those two in the following way:

MIRACLE- 1

Actually before 1993, I didn’t make bow before any other God except Lord Venkateswara(Tirupati) as I had wrong impression on all with name BABA. My cousin used to go to Sai Temple in Rajahmundry(A.P) and once asked me to have the Darshan but I rejected. After some time went to Hyderabad for job searching and got nothing of some reasons. My mother was worried so much and discussed with our family friends about my position. They told her that if you make your son to read SAI SATCHARITRA one-week parayana, he would get benefit. When I called my home(1994,NOV), mom told me about parayana. I agreed and started reluctantly. This time I would like to mention sentence in SATCHARITRA : Man will go to God’s feet when he is in troubles and became true for me. I completed and liked the life and teachings of BABA and waited for

the Invitation from BABA to go to Shirdi. As mentioned He only will pull us to His feet, suddenly after one week my classmate invited me for Shirdi trip. After 20 ! days from my Shirdi trip, got 2 offers and joined in NOV 1994.But I didn’t satisfy with my salary and stopped to continue worship BABA as I have the job(this showed my carelessness). I quit the job in DEC 95.I tried and failed to get another job and took training in Software

and went to Bombay for the job, frustrated in job searching and one night suddenly I thought why don’t I start worship BABA from tomorrow. After 10 days (Sept 25th 1996) I got one DREAM which changed my entire life. The dream follows: We were searching for one WHITE HANDCUFF(don’t know the reasons for searching) and after long search my friend got that one and said that Srinivas! You should have a FIRM FAITH to get any thing you want and because I(my friend ,Sai devotee,in Bombay) have a FIRM FAITH, got this one .Suddenly woke up from dream and felt like lively happened to me. Next day morning stood before BABA photo and prayed that I will have firm faith on you if I get the job in today’s Interview. ! My friends (wanted to shift to company in Hyderabad) having real experience and myself (having zero exp) attended the interview. Here BABA was with me and made a miracle. After written test and interview only my name was there in the final list. My friends didn’t write test well and Interviewer told us that even though he(myself) is zero experience guy ,performed well(BABA knows) and considering him. Immediately I cried in front of all bcoz I couldn’t stop and remembered

the dream. I got the offer letter within two days.I went to Hyderabad to join via Shirdi from Bombay.

I joined the job on NOV 1st 1996 and on NOV 6th BIG Cyclone washed out my village and our lands. Every body in my family prayed SAI BABA in helping to get the job and thence He is protecting my family through retaining my job. SHRI SAI BABA is the sole protector of our family. By this he took FIRM FAITH and created PATIENCE in me as it took three years to join SAI BABA darbar perfectly.

MIRACLE : 2

As I mentioned above, from NOV 1996 I don’t have any hitch in my life. In 1997,Aug got visa and selected client interview in India itself and till now going smooth by His grace. When called one of my college senior in U.S., I came to know that he is also became staunch devotee of SAI BABA. We discussed our experiences and how he blessed by BABA. While this chat I got attention to one of his experiences and follows:

Being staunch devotee, he got lot of visions and used to get sudden solution when he is thinking about some problems. He got fixed his marriage Feb1998 and prayed BABA how He is going to bless him while marriage function. On marriage day everybody is busy and one man came with beard and maroon cloths, looks like sadhu, was asking about bridegroom. Nobody is caring about this man, as they are involved in their work. Then finally asked his father and said that I want to bless bridegroom and ask dakshina and his father called his son. My friend immediately realized that BABA came to bless him in this form and took blessings and gave dakshina to Him. He (sadhu) left that place with happy . After hearing this one thought arose in my mind that how BABA will bless me in U.S. At the end of the Feb’98, when called my friend’s house in Hyderabad, came to know that one of my classmates is coming to NewYork and I wanted to meet him. I went to NewYork to meet him on last weekend of Feb98 and on Saturday morning woke up and asked him about his trip and about any gift for me. Actually I don’t want any

thing from him but as being classmate just for sake I asked. He opened his briefcase, took out one large portrait, and asked do you want this? When I wrapped paper out of that, wonder of wonders for me, It was SAI BABA photo. I really much excited and stared thinking inside that in this way You have blessed me and finally I got His grace for all these years worship. I asked my friend why did u bring only BABA photo. He said that he got info from other friend that I’m going to meet him in NewYork and when he went to Shirdi he bought that extra picture and he knew before that I’m BABA devotee. I never expect that my friend will come to NewYork as I’m staying in Connecticut (near to NY) and will give BABA picture. This is all because of BABA’s miracle.

MIRACLE - 3

When my sister’s wedding was fixed on March 6th 99, I thought that You blessed my friend (mentioned above) in Marriage function, I’ll see that how BABA is going to bless me and how You see that marriage will go without any hitch ,went to India on Mar 3rd,99 and very busy with wedding work as I’m the bride’s brother. The Muhurtham is at 3-45 a.m..At 1 a.m. I wanted to take some money from my suitcase that is put where all necessary marriage items located and while coming out from that room suddenly noticed COCONUT decorated with small chamak items. Because I have never seen decorated Coconut that will be in Bride’s hand during marriage. Then I took the Coconut and observing the design made on Coconut and noticed one small size photo (25 np size) and found that It was SHIRDI SAI BABA’s photo. At that time BABA only knew how much I excited and cried for this wonder. I enquired my mom about this and how it happened to be there. My mom said that my aunt (housewife) took that Coc! onut on marriage day evening and gave it back with that decoration. But here mystery is, even my mom didn’t notice that small photo as busy with work. After marriage I asked my aunt the reason why she put the photo there. As she is also BABA devotee at the end of decoration got a

thought to put small BABA photo in the center of Coconut and she didn’t tell any body that she is going to put photo. So in the presence of BABA, my sister’s wedding went fine as BABA was sitting on Coconut and observing the whole function. I told this wonder to every body in my family and they also got FAITH in SAI BABA and have feeling that BABA is sitting in every body’s heart. By BABA’s grace still reading EVERY DAY one chapter from Satcharitra without laziness or any other kind of problem.

I would like to relate an experience that happened to me last week. My mother had severe back and neck pain. As I live away from my mother, I prayed to Baba to help reduce my mother's pain and I applied udi to my neck praying to Baba to reduce my mother's pain as if I am doing it to my mother. I prayed to Baba that I would write my experience as soon as my mother's pain reduces. The next day I called my mom and she told me that she is feeling better, but still has little pain and this week she is feeling completely better. I am so happy that her pain reduced and by Baba's grace she is feeling good. Thank you Baba for protecting my family. Baba help us and protect us always. Thank you Baba for everything.

Achutaramaiah
Recently my wife and me made a trip to Shirdi. Since there was a rush, I used my Ex-service card to get a quick entry. We got the entry fast but were pushed aside in a hurry because the arathi time at 12:00 pm was approaching. My garland was accepted fast and no flowers were given. We just touched the Samadhi and we were bundled out quickly. My wife was in tears and appealed to Baba to help us to see Him again. So we went in the afternoon at 4:00 pm and went by the normal route. We saw Him soon from the left side. I asked the priest to give me a flower at least, he recognized me and gave a full garland in my hand! I was overjoyed. But my wife again appealed to Baba to let us visit Him again. And lo! as soon as we came out, we were asked to join a big party heading to the mandir directly through special pass. This time my wife went before me, saw Baba and had full darshan. Tears rolled down her face and she saw Him again and again to her full satisfaction- even the guards allowed her to stand for full five minutes while they jostled the other crowd. We had a great day seeing Him three times. We thanked Him again and again. Soon it was evening arathi time and we sat in the opposite garden and listened to the arathi songs with awe and sang the arathi songs along with the multitudes in choked voices. From the garden, one can hear and see Him on TV and also see Him through the window right across. I am sure devotees may note this vantage point where one can hear, see Him on TV and also see BABA with the priest garlanding. So I want to thank Baba again and again and my wife was very glad to see Him in full divine glow. Yes we feel in our hearts that the day was an unusual one to us to be invited by Baba three times. Baba is living and listens to all poor and rich alike. Please pray to Baba with faith.

A Sai devotee
To all Sai devotees, I promised Sai Baba I would write my experiences if I get residency (MD) in Internal Medicine in USA. I got residency in Internal Medicine this year even though I had multiple attempts and low scores in USMLE exams. This is just nothing but a miracle. I also would like to share other experiences, I had a dream in the early hours in 2004 that Saibaba was blessing me and he was telling me that all my desires will come true and he also mentioned that I am going to build Sai mandir. Lot of changes took place after that dream. I came to US, I got residency now, I got green card, I had persisted elevated liver enzymes, all my other tests were negative, I went to Shirdi and prayed Saibaba to bring my liver functions to normal, after my return I checked my liver functions, it was normal. It is just a miracle. One day I was praying to Sai Baba and asked Him to come to my house in any form, the same evening, I found Baba's photo in my friend's car. We don't believe that we have hands and legs, we know it is there so is Saibaba, He is there with us we believe something which is unknown to us, Saibaba is not unknown, have faith and patience, He gives everything that is good for us. Read Sai Satcharitha everyday. These are just few miracles out of so many miracles in my life.

LOST SIGHT RESTORED(Sai Sudha February 1944)

LOST SIGHT RESTORED
Convulsions cured my eldest daughter was in her husband's home for her second delivery which took place on Wednesday, 22-12-43 at Velumany, Trichy District. Parents were not informed about the same due to some petty misunderstandings. The first information they got on 3rd January 1944 only through a third person that the newborn baby died and the mother's condition critical at 7 P.M. immediately the parents hurried to the village and were able to see the patient with some difficulty at 1 P.M.
At that time the patient was not able to see from the previous morning and having virulent fits every ten minutes. Even liquid diet was impossibility. Best medical and Manthric aid sought with no tangible effect except in to take the patient to Tanjore and accompanied her.
Under Baba's command and guidance they reached Sai Mandir at 6 P.M. on 13-1-44. Local medical aid sought.
Before any medicine was applied the patient regained her sight by one O' clock the same day and fits subsided to the joy of her parents and satisfaction of her husband who accompanied her. Thus harmony was restored. All Glory to Sri Sai Ram. - T.S.Venkatramier, Sai Mandir, V.P. Koil Street, Tanjore - 15-1-44

Satsang EXPERIENCES- Sai Sudha (December 1943)

P. Raghavachari, Inspector of Police, writes:-> It was Gokulashtami Day Myself, my father and mother were left Manapparai. Never was my wife (who is more attached to Sri Sai Baba than myself ) was away from me on such important days. This time she was forced to stay with her daughter (under-treatment).at Salem. The worship was, done at Manapparai. as usual on the night, Just at about the same hour, at Salem my wife and son suddenly noticed a. scorpion on the photo of Sri Sai Baba. which was hanging on the wall near which my daughter was. lying. It drew the attention, of not one or two but many of those that resided in the neighbourhood. It stayed there for about an hour. or so.- never moved inspite of so much noise etc., created by the spectators. After an hour my wife performed a camphor arathi upon which the scorpion suddenly disappeared. Sri; Sai Baba manifested himself like that. My wife has had similar experiences of Sri Sai Baba before and she has personally narrated a few of those experiences to the Swamigal in person. My daughter and wife arrived at Manapparai just a few days ago., I got a telegram .from. Kalli (near Hosur) that my mother-in-law was seriously ill there. Her son is R; was. there. I, uttered the name of Sri Sai Baba and sent my wife, and son at once to Kalli. I now hear that she is getting better and there no need to be anxious about her health.

Satsang SAI THE PROTECTOR (November 1985)

SAI THE PROTECTOR (November 1985) In the early hours of 12th February 1985, (Tuesday), my sister had a wonderful dream. The dream was as follows: She and her friend were going to some place and all of a sudden a monkey started following them and was trying to snatch her friend's spectacles. At first she asked her friend to be careful and walk faster but a few seconds later, she realized that the monkey was no other than 'Lord Hanumanji'. She and her friend then did pranam to Lord Hanumanji and asked Him to forgive them for not recognising Him earlier. She got up soon and narrated the dream to all of us. It was her usual practice to visit Lord Hanumanji and Lord Sai Maharaj temples every Tuesday. Since it was a Tuesday she as usual took Hanumanji's and Sai Nath's darshan. On her return from Sai Maharaj's temple she went to the post office. But on the way to the Post office a gentleman coming from the opposite direction indicated to her with his hand to step aside. She accordingly stepped aside and looking backwards saw to her surprise a cow running at full speed in her direction. Had not the kind man (Sai himself) asked her to step aside, she would have come in the way of the cow and she would have been injured. We then realized the full meaning of her early morning dream. Sai Maharaj always protects His children, so we should cast off all our anxieties and become His sincere devotees. Miss Jyoti Premamurti Calcutta-700026.

FAITH CONQUERS AND DEVOTION PAYS (June 1986)

 

FAITH CONQUERS AND DEVOTION PAYS (June 1986)
SAI, This magical name takes you to places and brings you rewards beyond all
your expectations and out of all proportions.

Until a few years ago I had absolutely no knowledge about Sai Baba, but it
all began with a doctor, Mr. Choudhari. He is the person who has helped me
to develop this faith and devotion in Sai Baba.

I shall now narrate to you a few of my many encounters with Sai Baba. I had
done very badly in my XII Std French paper and had absolutely no hopes of
passing. Dada, (as I call Mr. Choudhari) told me to have faith in Sai Baba
and that He said would surely help me. Three days before my results I was
extremely tensed up when my sister came and said that a girl who claimed to
be a friend of mine had said to her that I had passed with 57%. I was
overjoyed but calmed down immediately thinking that someone must have fooled
her. When I narrated this incident to Dada, he said "Had I not told you that
Sai Baba would help you. Now that He has come in the form of your friend
saying that you have passed with 57%, I assure you that you shall be getting
a higher percentage than this." When I collected my results I was surprised
to see that I had passed with a First Class. Till today I have not known who
that girl was who claimed to be my friend. So this was my first encounter
with Sai Baba.

Truly enough, after this incident I became an ardent devotee of His, started
praying everyday without fail and even started fasting on Thursdays.

He has helped me throughout my academic career and in some subjects where I
felt I was not prepared at all, I had only to take Sai Baba's name and my
pen would start moving automatically completing the paper with no difficulty
at all.

I was working in a private firm and studying at the same time. I prayed to
Sai Baba to give me a good job and I had offers of jobs in Airlines and
Banks to make a choice from. I chose the Airlines job as desired by Sai Baba
because nothing is possible without His wishes.

Today I find a lot of things happening on their own which have made me happy
and I would give the entire credit to Sai Baba and to Dada.
It is rightly said that all things are possible to Him that believeth. Never
give up, Never yield, keep faith, keep worshipping.

SRI SAI BABA'S GRACE (JUNE 1986)

nbsp;
SRI SAI BABA'S GRACE (JUNE 1986)
(Dead child revived due to Baba's grace)

It was in the year 1971 that the following incident occured while, I was travelling from Davangere to Bangalore. I was alone at that time at Davangere, as my wife had gone in advance to attend the marriage of my brother-in-law. My best friend Dr. Rajan and his family consisting of his daughter, son-in-law (a doctor) and their son and a driver had come in their car to Davangere and were staying with me. Dr. Rajan had come to admit his grandson into the medical college. At that time, I happened to be the Principal and so was helpful in securing a seat for reasonable donation. The boy was admitted into the college as well as the hostel, and he was left in the hostel, and the others wanted to go to Madras the next day. It happened to be a Thursday and as such, I asked them to take bath in the morning, worship and then leave Davangere. I wanted to go that day to Bangalore to attend the marriage of my brother-in-law the next day. After learning this Dr. Rajan insisted that I should go with them in the car upto Bangalore. I had planned to go by express bus but as there was place in the car I
accepted their kind offer to travel in the car. When invited to take bath and do pooja. Dr. Rajan and his family blankly refused and said that they would take their bath after going to Madras. As such only I took a bath in the early morning and performed Sri. Sai BABA's
Pooja as usual. We all started at about 6'o clock in the morning on the way we took breakfast in Chitradurg and proceeded further. We reached Tumkur by about 10'o clock, in the morning and it started drizzling. Dr. Rajan's son-in-law wanted to drive the car upto Bangalore and though Dr. Rajan was not in favour of it, he took the wheel.
After passing the railway crossing there was a slight gradient in the road, near a village called Kyathsandra. There was a jumboo tree by the side of the road, where 2 muslim girls one aged about 10 years and the other 5 years were picking berries. As soon as they saw the car they ran to the opposite side, the elder one ran away but the younger one was caught in the undercarriage of the car. When the car passed over the child, the child fell down. She was bleeding terribly from the mouth. Everyone thought that she was dead. We all got down from the car and the first reaction of doctor Rajan was to inform the police about the incident. He took the car along with the driver and proceded in a hurry to police station in Kyathsandra.

I was also feeling bad about the death of the child. For about 5 minutes, I was praying to BABA desparately. Then Baba told me you are a doctor and you should go and see the condition of the child. I took out a kerchief, went near the child and wiped blood off her face and mouth. The child which was dead for all practical purposes, by the grace of Baba cried out loudly. I was surprised that the child was alive even though, it did not breathe for more than 5 minutes. It was a medical surprise and the child survived by the grace of Lord SAI. By that time, a number of villagers with sticks who were passing on the road stopped there menacingly. I asked for some water and it was given to me by the daughter of doctor Rajan. I lifted the child and took
it to the nearby milestone and kept her there. By that time some one had informed her mother that the child was dead. She came crying loudly with a dejected face. As soon as she came near, and found that her child was not dead, I could see a sudden transformation. I saw BABA's miracle which transformed the expression on her face into one of delight and joy.

She came and hugged the child and was about to take the child away, but by that time the police sub-inspector and a constable along with Dr. Rajan arrived in time. They were all surprised to see that the child was alive after being dead, Dr.Rajan attributed this miracle to BABA. He along with his daughter and son-in-law prostrated on the road itself and I transferred their obesience to BABA. He even repented for not having taken a bath and worshipped BABA as suggested by me.
The police sub-inspector detained the child and wanted me also to stay till all the investigations were over. I pleaded with him about my inability to remain there as I wanted to catch the bus specifically arranged at Bangalore to go to Bangerapet at 12 noon. When the police sub-inspector refused me permission to go all the villagers joined together calling out that I could go without caring for his advice. And when the line bus for Bangalore arrived they all stopped the Bus and called out for my box and bedding in the car. They took them and deposited them in the bus and asked me to get into the bus, without caring about the police. I came away and joined the others in the proper time.

Later on I learnt that Dr. Rajan and other were left off after two hours by the grace of Sri BABA, and the whole episode closed because the child revived after being dead. Then they also became ardent devotees of BABA after this incident. I pray to Lord Sai. SAI BABA to shower His grace on all the devotees.

THAT ACCIDENT....! (June 1986)

THAT ACCIDENT....! (June 1986)
It was the last week of February 1984. I had had the strangest feeling that something would happen to me.

I was 61yrs. I should have been superanuated, instead I was working hard to meet both ends with a daughter yet to be married. I have had a chequered career for 41 years and yet my basic salary had yet to cross the mark of Rs. 800/- per month.

On the 3rd March 1984, I woke up as usual at 4 a.m. and dashed off a few letters quietly to several Sai-bandhus in 'Postal Sai Satsang' circuit. I attended to other chores as on any other day and left for my office at 8-15 a.m. The whole of that morning, I was brooding over the passage in the 'Sai Satcharita' about always depending on Shirdi Sai Baba.

In the afternoon, as I was returning to the office at 10, Give Row,
Calcutta-1 after the recess, I was hit from behind by the left giant wheel of a jeep Suddenly there was a piercing noise like someone had cast away a piece of wood into the saw. Instinctively I jerked away and fell down on a parked car on the left side. The oddest, deepest silence instantly seemed to fill me, despite the excruciating pain and the inability to stand on my feet. My mind at once raced to Sai.
It was as if I had picked up a telephone, and at the other end was Shirdi Sai Himself. It was just He and I. I heard myself reaching out: "You promised me" I prayed, "that if I believed in You you'd take care of me."

In the next instant, I took a look at my left leg. It was enough to make me gasp. Shirdi Sai had saved me from the jaws of death for the third time and from being crippled too.

If I were to fall on the right side, I would have been crushed to pulp, I did not faint. I did not scream. I could see people running towards me.
Suddenly then the Psalm's last verse flashed in my mind as though God
whispered it to me in reassurance: "Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life...."

The Doctor who was attending on me knew just what to do. He felt my leg and said that there was no fracture. What a relief, for at my age as fractures won't heal that easily. It was like I'd turned my whole self over to Shirdi Sai, and if there was any pain, Sainath was feeling it for me. I'd had the feeling that everything was going to turn out all right.

During the treatment, Sai-half talked with me as never before. My wife and myself had never prayed together and had never really shared our Sai feelings with each other. We had some really neat talks while she and I were alone in that room and we drew very close.

By now I realized that what had happened to me was the unknown thing I had merely sensed. But there were still some things about it I did'nt fully understand, things that would become clearer as the days went on. One was that I was getting so much attention. Sai-bandhus of Calcutta were concerned and calling on me incessantly. And the letters and cards I received - from Sai Brothers and Sai Sisters all over the country- Everyday I'd get more sai-mail. In addition, I received remittances from many Sai-bandhus all unsolicitedly.

As I tried to answer the letters from Sai-bandhus, frankly admitting how I'd felt Sai's presence and how He had taken care of me, I felt I was being given a rare opportunity to share my faith with many Sai-bandhus.

I made some discoveries too. I learned that there are times when you have to depend totally on other people. Right after the accident, I'd had to rely on someone and now while my left leg was held immobilised, I saw the things I could not do for myself, simple things like taking bath, changing clothes, etc. At those times especially I needed my Sai-half's help, something she was eager to give but I was rejecting it in the past. It was a humbling experience that brought my wife and me that much closer.

I learned something about love, too. My whole family and I were loved so much. The love was expressed in so many ways; all the nice things people said and wrote to me; the prayers offered; the remittances from Sai-bandhus; the wise counsel I got from Sai-brothers; the attention from the Doctor. I'd never felt so loved.

I learned something about faith too. My accidents taught me to believe in myself also. We can be Sai-devotees for a long time and say, we have faith, but until we actually believe in our faith, depend on it and see it work, it does'nt do a whole lot of good. It's like having all this power that never gets used.

Shirdi Sai did'nt want the accident to happen to me, and He certainly did not make it happen. He helped me in so many, many ways.... by letting me fall on the left side on a parked car instead of letting fall on the right only to be crushed to pulp. It was Sai who took Motherly care of me.
The Doctor told me that it would take months before I could sit
cross-legged. Someone said that I'd get back 75% of the use of left leg. I said he was being too conservative. "I intend to get full use of it back". I told Sai "You hooked everything back up. So I'm going to use it all." Shirdi Sai set me right soon. I could sit cross-legged soon enough. I listen to Lord Sainath and depend on Him for direction. Paramahansa Yogananda rightly said: "Trust more in God. Believe that He who created you will maintain you".

Sai-bandhus I talked to about my accident and the things that happened to me sometimes say: "Well, Nathenji, that's wonderful, but if you could have that day back, would you really want to go through it again?". "If I could do it again exactly like it happened, with the same experience" I say, "Yes, I'd do it all over again".

And I mean it. Because, you see, the things Shirdi Sai did for me were just too good to miss!

Satsang HOW LORD 'SAI' HELPED US.(June 1986)

HOW LORD 'SAI' HELPED US.(June 1986)
Hemadripant writes in his 'Sai Satcharita' that "Sai Baba is always full of mercy. What is wanted on our part is whole hearted devotion to him. When a devotee has got firm faith and devotion, his wishes are soon fulfilled. This is shown in our case.

Before coming to Him we were in Shahabad and through one Nair family who were our friends and neighbour we came to know about His grace. When we shifted to Poona we were forced with school admission problem. In one of the convent schools there were two vacancies and there were 80 candidates competing for them. But I had great faith in 'Sai Baba'. I knew that he would help us. After the test and interview when the list was published, my son's name was not there I was very upset. I shed tears in front of His photo and asked Him whether we were not His devotees and whether I was one of the flowers of the Mango tree which has fallen down without yielding fruit. I was restless and immediately started doing saptaha. In between my husband met the school headmistress and our Sai had worked miracle! She said that as a special case she would consider my son's case. It was a private
school where donation and influence were of no avail. Our friends who had been trying since 3 to 4 years were surprised.I remembered Sai's saying, "You look up to me and I will look after you".

One more instance I want to share with my friends. Tournaments were being held in the colony. While practicing for the matches I left my sweater on the ground. In the afternoon I remembered and when I went to search, it was not there. The sweater was presented to me by my mother. I was upset because I lost something which was given as a token of love. I went to Sai Baba's photo and requested Him to help me. I promised Him that I would be more careful in future. In the evening to my surprise one of my friends brought it back. She saw my servant hiding it under the saree pallow. I knew in my heart that Sai would get it for me.

I always get up and sitting in the bed itself fold my hands in prayer. And after my bath I read one chapter. He always sees all my difficulties and solves them. When I remember 'Sai' He fills my whole being with strength. He has seen that there is no dearth of food or clothing in my house. In the year's time we have bought one flat of which we had never dreamt. He has made me a very happy woman who has a house, a loving husband, two smart boys and good friends and above all
His Grace.

Chaitanya
I had landed up in the toughest of all problems at my end, which ultimately forced me to approach the higher authorities. I couldn't believe as to why I had so much bad luck - the New Year began with the worst times in my life. I am a hard of hearing student living and studying independently in Canada, and Sai Baba has been guiding me since 2003 when I started my studies. It was no doubt a very difficult time for me - Baba wanted to put me to test, so that I learn to fight back the odds. Being just 21 and handling life independently and responsibly has been a very big challenge for me. Every single day of my life here would begin with a smile, and end with a disappointed look. Somehow I wonder as to why my "never-ending problems" don't get solved out sooner. I have been crossing the darkest of the tunnels in my life and am still waiting to see some light. I get impatient at times, because I am desperate to succeed in my challenges and get eternal happiness. I had given up all hope, being totally frustrated over a hundred issues at my end but I always thought of my SadGuru and my dear parents. I just needed patience to wait and get all matters sorted out, and one fine day, things started to get better. Though not all matters have been sorted out yet, I am still grateful to Baba for showing me the right path. Baba's ways are strange - he knows my past, present and future. He only asked for two things, i.e. Faith and Patience and in return he would give me whatever I asked for. Sounds simple to surrender yourself at the Guru's feet, or remember these two things? It is extremely difficult to have complete faith and be patient 'all the time'. If Baba wills it, he would give me the opportunity to do a Nam-Saptah (prayana) or visit Shirdi. I don't know how else to thank Sai Baba for guiding me at every step I fall. Without my strong faith in Baba and his guiding light, I really wouldn't have completed three years of university successfully.

I would like to share my most recent experience which occurred last Thursday. Actually it all started on Wednesday. We are doing some work in our back yard so I had to get a permit. In order to apply for it they needed my copy of the Deed. I took this with me along with the original. However when I returned home I discovered that I had lost my original copy. I searched everywhere including going back to the township, but had no luck. I came home and read Sai-Satcharitra as I do everyday but my mind was worried and kept thinking about the deed. Next day on Thursday I prayed and while reading Sai-Satcharitra thought it would be nice if it would show up today. To my Sai who is always with me he made it show up in the mail that day some one had found it and mailed it back to me. My joy knew no bounds I thanked Sai and now I am sharing this with you all. He is always with us.

I would like to share my recent experience of Baba's miracle. My in-laws lost their Passport and ticket at Miami airport. They did not realize till they came home and it was 9:30 pm and all information desks at airport were closed. Miami airport is too big and my in-laws were not sure where they lost it. Next day morning I called Miami airport office and inquire about their passport. They did not have any information. My husband and I decided to go to airport personally. My mother-in-law and I both are devotee of Baba. On our way to airport we both prayed to Baba and I promised Baba if I would get the passport I will share my experience. At the airport, we went to lost and found office and asked them about the passport. The lady at counter told us she just received their passport. Our eyes were filled with tears and once again Baba showed us that He is always with us. It was impossible to get the passport back without Baba's grace. Baba, please be with us all the time. I would like to request all devotees please have faith in Baba all the time, He will definitely take care what you need.

After reading Sai Vichar last week, I felt as if Baba is reminding me about my promises. Baba saved me on numerous occasions. On last Vijaya Dasami day which was also a Thursday I was in hurry to reach Sai Mandir in our place to witness the sandhya arati. I stopped at a red light and was waiting for the green to come. There were four cars ahead of me. When the green light came I applied gas without giving much attention to the car in front of me. I hit pretty hard from the rear to the car in front of me. The driver got annoyed and started yelling at me. We both pulled our vehicles to a side to check the damages. We both were surprised to note that there was no trace of any damage on his car but it was only my license plate which got distorted. I was praying to Baba while exchanging the insurance information. The other car driver apologized for his behavior. I promised Baba that I would put in the Sai Vichar if there are no claims on my insurance. It is really a miracle and there were no claims. On another occasion at my work one day I took a decision not to process certain files from the customer as we were running out time for next set of jobs. Later on we came to know that there were transactions for very huge amounts in the unprocessed file. I was called for explanation and after talking to the office, I promised Baba that I would put in Sai Vichar if the issue gets resolved. Next day we came to know from the customer that they sent wrong file with wrong amounts in it. It was a big relief for me. Baba saved me on many occasions and these are just few out of many showed by Him. Baba is a part of my life and there is no life without Him.

THE DUMB SPEAKS BY HIS GRACE (December 1944)

It is no exaggeration to say that Lord Sai is God Incarnate. He has
performed miracles in His lifetime and after leaving this earthly life. His
devotees have had miraculous experiences in their careers and one of the
many instances is the following fact actually experienced by one of his
devotees.

Sow. Rajalakshmi, the nine-year-old daughter of Sri. T.R.S.Mani Iyer, Sri
Rajalakshmi Vilas, Kumbakonam, well known as an ardent devotee of Lord Sai,
was dumb by birth, Much dejected by this, he worshipped the Lord Sai most
fervently and found solace in Him. One day Lord Sai ordered Sri Iyer to come
to his Samadhi at Shirdi. Much exalted. Sri Iyer with his daughter went to
Shirdi on 28-3-42. They worshipped the Lord before His Samadhi; and “Lo the
girl began to cry “ Sai Baba, Sai Baba.” Is it not a miracle? Does this not
go to prove that He is the incarnation of God?

The girl is now studying in the school and there is now a veritable
improvement in her speech. Greatly rejoicing at the mercy of Lord Sai, Iyer
is daily offering pujas to Him in his house at Kumbakonam and of late he
performed three Laksharchanas to Sri Sai Baba.

In May 1944, he again went to Shirdi to attend the Sri Ramanavami
celebration and paid homage to Lord Sai by presented Benares Silk shawl
worth about Rs.500 and also a silver lamp (Kuthivikkulu) to the height of
his daughter costing nearly Rs.400. His extreme faith in Him and ardent
devotion to Him manifested as above, have attracted many more devotees to
His doors at Shirdi. Puja as done at Shirdi, is being performed at his
residence at Kumbakonam daily.

I wrote the biography of Rajarshi Sri Ramanananda Swamiji who is a staunch devotee and propagator of Shirdi Saibaba Teachings and Philosophy. I wanted to dedicate this book to well known Sai devotee Radhakrishna Mai. I have written her name, put her beautiful photo on the typed manuscript, and slept. On the same night I suffered with severe fever and all of sudden Baba came to my room and said seriously" don't dedicate her this book, remove her name and photo". I said Yes, and immediately my fever disappeared and on the morning immediately I removed the dedication page. I told this to Swamiji and others. They were surprised. This is my experience that happened in 2005.

My son Avinash had a trip to India, Hong Kong and Japan from Canada last year all by himself for the first time. Mumbai was experiencing heavy floods and Avi too was in Mumbai during the time of floods. He was stranded at Mumbai airport for almost 4 days without food, water, washroom, telephones or computer access. I kept calling up my parents/sister but none had any contact with him since he had already checked in and was not allowed any outside contact. I was totally disturbed, could not sleep or eat and during the night time started talking and crying to Baba asking for his aid. Later my sister called from India crying out of joy that Avi has taken off for Hong Kong and will call me up once he reaches Hong Kong.
When my son returned from his trip, he related his experience with Baba. He asked me if I was crying and was somewhere in the Mandir with Baba. I said yes. Then he related that when he was sitting at the Mumbai airport all depressed and hungry and was just praying to Baba to sail him and others through this calamity, out of the blue there came a lady sitting besides him, started talking to him about her life. Avi questioned her as to why was she telling him all about her life story. Then she showed him an album of her son who Avi said was himself, his picture, which he said: 'Mom I just couldn't believe it, it was me in that picture'. She apparently had lost her son in USA who was shot dead by some gangsters and she had come to India to perform his last rites and was returning home to Hong Kong. Avi went on to say that this lady offered him food and took care of him all the way, until they reached Hong Kong like his mother. He said 'Mom I was just amazed as she was just like you' and once they reached Hong Kong airport that lady disappeared into the thin air nowhere to be seen as he wanted to help her in luggage and also thank her but she was gone as she came in.

I had purchased a house. I wanted Baba to bless it. So I went to Sai temple in Mylapore. It was all unplanned, so I had not booked for any specific pooja. But all the way through my journey to the temple, I was just thinking, I wish I could do Abhishekam to the Lord. I reached the temple at 6:00 am. I could not believe my eyes when I entered it. The Abhishek had just started. I was so thrilled. I asked my father to rush to near by shop and get milk. I thought if atleast my packet of milk reaches the Lord for His Abhishek, I am blessed. There was already a queue of devotees, each of them were given the chance to do the Abhishekam. I also went and stood in the queue. Baba blessed me further, by giving me the chance to do Abhishkek, not just me but also to my parents and my child. I had purchased a Shawl for Him. The priest took it and asked me to help him wrap it around Baba and put a garland myself. Then I gave the documents for this final blessing. Baba fulfilled my all my thoughts. I am ever thankful to You, Shridi Sai Baba, for always showering your blessings on me.

I am from a catholic family in England. I began reading about philosophy and eastern religions, becoming obsessive and persistently searching books for the "answer". One fateful day, I was in the local library after work and had become tired and annoyed with myself over the time I was spending on this fruitless quest. I decided to give it up and to read something purely for entertainment. In the biography section, I saw an interesting book on the top shelf. I took hold of it but the book next to it fell to the floor. I am not clumsy and do not remember dislodging that book. This obviously aroused my curiosity. The book was Sai Baba, Man of Miracles by Arthur Osborne. Despite all my reading, I had never come across Sai. I was intrigued by a quick review of the contents and took the book home. Cutting a long story short, I have now been a devotee of Sai for 30 years, have twice visited Shirdi, my watch face has a picture of him and I "talk" to him each day. I have received great worldly and spiritual benefits over the years. Seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you.

Sai Devotee
When I read Sai devotees prayer and Sri Saibaba's visit to their functions. I was praying Sri Saibaba to attend my son's marriage or reception. But I was thinking that I am not as strong devotee as other devotees so how will Sri Saibaba can come to my place. Before marriage, we perform Santek in Gujarat. Purnahuti is very important in this. During this stage, our priest calls a senior priest to help him. As purnahuti started the senior priest came and started saying the slokas. After completing purnahuti I ask my priest what dakshina I should pay the other senior priest. He told me that he do not know the senior priest and he did not invite the senior priest. So my wife asked me to pay him some dakshina. When I tried to pay him, he said, Did I asked for any money? I told him, I am giving it because I am very happy with his work. Then again the senior priest said he did ask for any money? I requested him and he took it. Then he asked me for rice and dal to eat. I could not understand why I did not offer him lunch as people were having lunch. When he asked me for rice and dal, I told my friend to take him at the lunch place. He only eats rice and dal out of so many items. After that he went away. Then I asked my neighbors, priest and many people but nobody knows him or seen him any time. Immediately it strikes to me Oh! Baba you came as a priest. Tears came out from all of our eyes. My family is a strong believer of Sadguru Sri Saibaba for more than 55 years and how can He forget us. Just keep faith and patience and He will be at your place. Many thanks Baba for your help all the time to my family and me. Please guide us all the time.

My job where I was working laid me off on September 16th 2005. However, to my wonder just before being laid off, Sai made me visit to a store, which I usually do the shopping. I just asked for job application and the manager said there are no applications and asked me to check next week. But when I was coming out from the store the district Manager came to visit the store for inspection and asked me what for I am looking? I do not know who he is? I told him that I was looking for an application for a job in the store. To my surprise, he asked me to wait and he got a pad of applications, gave me one, and asked me to fill the same and submit immediately. He waited till I completed the form and he interviewed me there itself and selected me after negotiating the pay terms etc. and confirmed the appointment and asked me to join after the due formalities of background check. In the same store, I applied earlier 2 or 3 times but there was no response. After this, I went home and in the night I went to the job as usual and I got the notice from my previous employer about my lay off. I am working in the same company now, which is a corporate store and has light work compared to the previous job. I am also given one more job in October 2005, to schedule my hours properly during the weekdays to have sufficient income. Both jobs are corporate owned and with certain benefits. I only pray Sai to give me the normal way of life, as he knows what is needed to me and he gives that. I only request all devotees to leave the burdens and worries to Him whatsoever and surrender to the lotus feet of Sai who takes care of everything.

SAI MIRACLE
 

 

A true devotee of Sai Maharaj need have no fear whatsoever that He will forsake the devotee at any time.  Trials tribulations and ordeals are confronted only to be cleared, like thick fog on sunrise, by His glance and thus confirm His love and benevolence to the devotee and increase his faith.

 

Sai will neglect the welfare of His devotees only if the sea turned back the rivers, as stated in Sai Satcharita.  My personal experience in this regard I wish to share with my brother devotees.

 

Certain circumstances developed wherein I had to resign from the public sector organization where I was working for over 14 years.   I owned all the misdemeanors I was accused of, never trying to put the blame on anybody, and also gave statement accepting them.   The great injustice that pained me most was the fact that everything spoken against me was readily accepted or rather swallowed in their entirely without any attempt being made to verify or cross check as to their authenticity or to analise possible motives which were very obvious to everyone else.  Not that I am perfect and innocent and I do have my share of guilt; but what actually aggravated the situation was not their gravity but systematic, calculated and wilfull vilification made degrade me in order to remove me from the path.   This combined with the witch-hunt of certain other individuals produced the synergestic effect making my exist a must.

 

The head of the particular division of the company, to which I was attached and the Personnel Manager suggested that I better tender my resignation so that the entire unpleasant episode could be closed.  As I knew the situation was the outcome of the efforts of certain individuals by their vilification, which found easy and willing reception and acceptance to my superiors, my quitting was inevitable.

 

I was asked to meet the head of the division, who had come down to the place of my posting, at the hotel where he was staying and I was aware of the shape of the things to come.  When I reached the reception counter of the hotel, with fluttering heart, there was the Ashirvad portrait of Baba bestowing his blissful looks down on me.

 

I endured silently all the humiliations heaped on me.   I could see that the issue was the outcome of personal vendetta basically, eventhough I was also guilty of certain misdeeds.   Since persecution and further witch-hunting and even suspension would be the consequence of any resistance on my part, I tendered my resignation on 31-7-82.   At that time I was assured of satisfactory settlement of my dues such as gratuity, CPF etc.  But on the next working day, which was a pay day, my salary was withheld and I realized that the Management was intending to deprive me of my dues.   I prayed to Baba and left to Him to protect me and my family since we had no savings whatsoever.

 

After that I made a number of appeals to the company explaining our plight and requesting for early payment and settlement of may claims.   Not a single reply was received for over 8 months.   But I had implict faith that Baba in His inscrutable way shall change the heart of the people concerned and protect us.   Every day and night was spent in agony, tension and fear, because the persons who strove for my downfall and ultimate elimination from the organization were still active and striving their utmost to see that not only that I was deprived of my rights but harass me further, if possible.

 

But to our surprise and happiness a letter dated 31-3-83 was received from the H.O of the company about release of my July, 1982 salary and stating that my gratuity and CPF will be also paid on receipt of ‘No Demand Certificate’ from the regional office where I was serving.   This downpour of nectar came forth from our God Baba only.   Is it not His mercy and love for his devotee which caused a miraculous and total change of heart of the people to take such a favourable decision even though every thing was against me, which was diametrically opposite to the one they were intending to take ?

 

Baba is always with me and the interim sufferings and turmoils we underwent were only to test our steadfastness and confirm our faith.  And also a warning and a mild punishment for my misdeeds.   He has opened my eyes and shown the path of rectitude.

 

Now I have made yet another appeal to the Chief executive of the company to direct revocation of acceptance of my resignation treating the same as withdrawn and re-instate me in service since at the age of 50 I am unable to get another job and the entire family is facing a gloomy future.   I am sure that Sainath shall once again prevail upon the minds of decision makers and make them recall me.  He is the ultimate decision maker.

 

I shall share the result of my appeal with my co-devotees when I come to known about it.

 

We have been visiting Shirdi occasionally and every year since 1979.   We had darshan of Baba at Shirdi during the 1st week of May, 1982.  We shall be there after the orders of Baba are received,

 

Sai is unparallalled.   He is our saviour.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH LORD SAI
 

 

I am a mechanical engineer running a small scale industry in Bangalore  In the year 1980 I had one of the worst experiences of facing partnership problem with my business partner  My partner was insisting on me under the pretext of his ill-health that he should be relieved from the partnership immediately and at the same time he was demanding a good will compensation of Rs One lakh twelve thousand (Rs 1,12,000/-) from me   I am a poor engineer without any financial back ground and whatever little money I had was already invested in the business.  The only wealth I was enjoying was my Shraddha (faith) on Lord Sai   The industry was in a financial crisis having heavy loans and liabilities all around.  So a challenge was posed on me by this problem, which seemed unsolvable in the beginning.  If I do not concede my partner’s demand, I would not get any more co-operation from him which is all the more detrimental to the smooth operation of the industry.   My friends and well-wishers started advising me “BEG, BORROW AND STEAL BUT SOME HOW ARRANGE FOR THE MONEY, PAY YOUR PARTNER OTHERWISE YOU WILL RUN INTO MORE PROBLEMS IN FUTURE”.   But then whom to beg ?  How to borrow ?  and what to call ?  I was keeping my finger crossed without knowing what to do ?

 

During this trying period in the month of January 1980, a friend of mine told me that he was planning a visit to Shirdi and asked me whether I was interested in joining him since I was mentally very much disturbed, I readily agreed to join him with the objective of restoring my mental peace   One night we landed in the great soil of Shirdi and next day after offering my ABHISHEKA SEVA to LORD SAI I put two chits on the silver feet of SAI in the Samadhi Mandir, One chit reading as “continue with the present partner” and the other chit reading as “discontinue with your partner some how”.   In fact I was very much hesitating whether I should do this silly thing on the great noble feet of lord Sai.  Finally I thought that when I am HIS child why to fear and I took the liberty of asking approval for my plant of action from my father (Lord Sai) by these two chits  I put two chits on his silver feet and took one of them  After coming out of the Samadhi Mandir I opened the chit and read as “discontinue with your partner some how” .  I read out this to my friend, who was with me and my friend was not happy that I did this silly thing at the feet of Lord Sai.  My friend told me that in partner and therefore some how I shold continue with my partner and I should not have put chits on the feet of Lord Sai etc . . . Yet this time I was firm in my mind and I decided to think and act in arranging for the funds required to pay to my partner as compensation  After all my father had given his permission and I was sure that he would show me the path for solving my problem provided I have the will to work hard in the right direction with all the sincerity.

 

After coming back to Bangalore I spent almost every day thinking about the ways and means of arranging the fund.   Many days passed without finding a proper solution to my problem yet I was firm in my thinking and cast all my problems on the feet of Sai.  I wrote to my brother (Physician) for some financial help who readily agreed to give me Rs.30,000/- and yet I was short of  Rs.20,000/-

 

 

A meeting was arranged between me and my partner with the help of my friends and dissolution deed was drafted.   As per the terms of the deed I was to pay Rs.50,000/- immediately on signing the dissolution deed and the rest of the money was to be paid in 10 equal installments.  According to this I should have cash on hand of Rs.50,000/- and I was still short of Rs.20,000/- and I was therefore desperate.   The day of dissolution i.e. 21-8-1982 was fast approaching.  I was all the time thinking that on the day of dissolution my partner would come and all my friends would come and I would be humiliated in their presence since I could not arrange for the required fund.

 

On the previous day to the day of dissolution i.e. 20-8-1982.  I was quietly sitting at Home and my mind was full of the thoughts of the next day.  I had just finished my lunch with my family at about 2.00 pm.  We heard a knocking on the front door and when I opened the door I saw one of my old friends along with an old person.  My old friend’s visit at this unusual hour surprised me since I thought that he must have come to me for some financial help from me, because it was my experience in life that hardly any one would give me money and on the other hand many would take financial help from me.

 

But lo! Here was quite an unusual experience of my life-time.  My old friend told me that he had Rs.20,000/- cash with him and that he was interested in keeping the money with me for some time and I could pay it back whenever it suited me and till such that money would carry some nominal interest.   This was exactly the money that I was short of executing the dissolution deed with my partner.

 

I offered simple food to my old friend and the old person along with him and they heartily took the food and after resting for a while went away.

 

How can I forget this great moment in my life ?   How can I forget my Sai Narayan in my life even for a second.  Believe me I have dedicated my small factory to My lord Sai Ram.

SAI LEELA

 

 

Can any one believe that an ordinary middle class family could dream of constructing a Sai Baba Mandir ?   This becomes truth when Shri Sai Baba’s divine grace fall on our desires which are fulfilled effortlessly.   Our dream was cherished in the shortest period of about five months.  The idea came to our mind when I, along with my family, on our visit to Birla Mandir at Hyderabad, saw Lord Krishna’s Moorthi of about 3 feet in white marble well-placed in open, amidst a beautiful garden which attracted our attention.   The idea struck in our mind to build a Sai Baba Mandir in our family Navagraha Temple premises at Secunderabad.  Here the idea was planted in our minds and we started planning and were looking for an auspicious day to lay the foundation stone for constructing the temple.

 

To my utter surprise it so happened that when I was just attending the counter in my scooter and motor cycle spare-parts shop, two customers came to my shop to buy some scooter parts, who happened to see Sai Baba’s ring, which I was wearing and asked me whether I was a Sai Devotee.   I just told them, yes and also told them, “I am planning to construct a Sai Baba Mandir and I am looking for an auspicious day for laying the foundation stone.   Immediately they told me that 9th December, 1982 was the most auspicious day and to my surprise they told me that they were also installing an idol of Shri Sai Baba at Malkajgiri.  Then I and my wife thought, this to be an indication from Sai Baba and we decided and laid the foundation stone and the ceremony was a grand success.   From then onwards the construction work went on without any hindrance and every one co-operated and the temple of 9’ x 12’ with half garden and half place as temple for Sai Baba Idol, to be installed on a pedestal, was constructed.

 

Here, it will not be out of place to add that Shri Sai Baba’s grace was so much on us that we did not struggle or go out for anything as every thing came to our door when the work was in progress.   This is evident from the fact that even the sculptor who happened to come to Hyderabad to attend the installation ceremony of Shri Sai Baba Idol at Malkajgiri happened to meet me and came to my house, took order for making the Sai Baba Idol and was so prompt in making the beautiful idol in time.  It would be interesting for the devotees to know that the Sai Baba Moorthi was airlifted from Jaipur by one of our well wisher in Indian Air Lines and there was absolutely no problem till the Sai Baba’s Moorthi reached my door at Secunderabad.   I am happy to say that Sai Baba ame my himself to my place as the ideas was also bestowed by Him on us and hence his grace was there throughout on us.   Everything was done effortlessly and Dampathi Sansthapana was done on 15th May, 1983 in which several Dampathies and devotees took part in the pooja proceedings throughout and every thing went on so well by His divine grace that it is beyond one’s imagination.

 

There is no need to say that the success was due to Shri Sai Baba’s divine grace and Baba’s temple has come up to bless all.   Everyone of us is enjoying the heaven in the “Sai Temple” where one realizes the bliss of true happiness.

 

We pray to Thy feet for making us instrumental to do such a sacred work.  We are also thankful to the Court Receiver of Shri Sai Baba Sansthan, Shirdi, who acknowledged our invitation and conveyed Shri Sai Baba’s blessings.

SHRI SAI’S BLESSINGS

In this materialistic world everyone is after the money and none has time to think about God.  One will not face any problem or difficulty in his own life, if one has full faith on Sai Baba.  I am giving below one important event of my life.

My elder brother’s business was not running well.   He was established at Sardhana (Meerut) while I was doing my business at Muzaffarnagar (U.P).   I was doing my business at Muzaffarnagar (U.P.) I was able to recover losses in the business with Shri Sai Baba’s kirpa since 1979, so I insisted on him to visit Shirdi.   He agreed, if he would get some business with Shri Sai Kirpa.   It happened that I was able to have brick Kiln business at Muzaffarnagar for him with Shri Sai Kirpa.   It was also decided that this business will be started by the latest fixed Kiln and chimney instead of a moving chimney, keeping in view the efficiency of the latest techniques; but there was risk in the new technique of total failure it being a new one.   It happened so in one case also.   My eldest brother is a heart patient and he takes failure seriously.   I was very much worried that if the fixed chimney failed what would happen.   I was daily remembering Shri Sai Baba for his blessings.   This brick kiln work was started in September 1981 and the construction was completed in November 1981.    Firing was to start in the second week of December 1981.   Everyone was in suspense about the success of the venture except me.  I was having firm faith in Shri Sai Baba that He cannot do harm to me.   Ultimately the day came and firing was started.  In the night the firing blocked;   but with Shri Sai Kirpa the Head Mistry was saved from death.   On the next day, firing did not start.   It was at stand still irrespective of the quantity of coal consumed and the Head Mistry declared that the Chimney was a failure and that he was unable to do the work.   This disturbed all of us and everyone was upset.  I was worried about my elder brother because of his heart disease and was remembering ‘Sai Baba’ all the time with the prayer  give me some hint or clue so that I can do some thing.   I started the prayer and remained in meditation for half an hour and I went to brick kiln afterwards to watch the position.  While I was moving hither and thither, Shri Sai Baba gave me an idea that blocking of fire was due to lack of oxygen.   The Head Mistry did not agree with me.   I remained perturbed and I took decision all of sudden to pass air by opening the holes without the consent of the Head Mistry and watch the result.   The result was a miracle.   Fire started burning immediately with high flames.   I told it to the Mistry afterwards when he was happy as the problem was solved.   Since then work is going on smoothly with ‘Shri Sai Baba’s kirpa.’    In this way ‘Sai Baba’ blessed me.

BABA COMES TO OUR RESCUE

It is now our experience that Baba’s spirit always follows his sincere devotees.   If the devotees are sick or stranded or needy in other respects, Shri Baba is there to take care of them.  It happened to us in the month of May 1983 when we were returning from Bombay.   The Railway authorities at V.T. issued tickets keeping the passengers in the waiting list and we were a few among them.  We did not ask for it, but having taken full fare even on the berths our names appeared only in the waiting list.   To our disappointment we saw that we were not allotted any berths in the Madras Mail and somehow we boarded a coach intended for Madras passengers, though we were to go to Sholapur.  

We breathed a sigh of relief that we were at last in a coach; but our happiness was only momentary.   After the train left V.T. station we were informed by the Coach conductor that all berths intended for Madras were full and not a single was available and we should make our arrangements at the next station.   He could not oblige us in any manner.   When the train arrived at Dadar station our option was either to get down at Dadar, where the train halts only for five minutes or to get down at Kalyan where we might have sufficient time to make alternate arrangements.  As Kalyan would be too far, we thought of getting down at Dadar and seek accommodation in other compartments.   Accordingly we got down with out suit cases at Dadar and in a few minutes the train started.   We became panicky and we were almost certain that we would be stranded at Dardar station.   Even when the train had not started, we made an effort to get into another sleeper coach, but the inmates of that coach did not open the door on one side.  When the train left we thought that we would be stranded at midnight and our money paid for the tickets would go waste as we might be required to purchase fresh tickets for another train.  We were remembering Baba in our minds but the train left and we thought that we were rendered helpless.   In the meanwhile a Sikh gentleman opened the other door of the same sleeping coach.   He waved his hand towards us to come immediately and we rushed with our luggage to that door, kept it in a moving train and virtually we were pushed inside the compartment after us and we experienced that the moving train.   Which was slowly gaining momentum, reduced its speed and it almost came to a halt.   Due to great anxiety and panic I had become restless and when I sat on a seat which was available, the Sikh gentleman consoled me with his palm on my head, addressing me as “Behanji” and asking me not to worry.   The Sikh gentleman and the T.T.I. and two others sat in a part of the same compartment and they walked away at Kalyan, never to be seen again.   Some of the passengers consoled us.   As the compartment was vacant till Poona, from where students had reservations, we had a good sleep in independent berths.   Even at Poona we were not disturbed and we reached Sholapur quite comfortably.

My parents and I started thinking on reaching Sholapur who that Sikh gentleman might be.   We had no occasion to thank him though my father wanted to meet him again and express his thanks.   It is still ringing in our mind.   It must be the great Baba, who came to our rescue at the hour of our need and made us to reach our destination as scheduled and without any discomfort.   Thus we traveled in comfort by His grace and blessings, thought we were not allotted any berths or any seats in the sleeper coaches and entering into the general compartment, as everybody knows, is wholly impossible and insecure in these days.   We offer our ‘Pranams’ to the great Baba.

AN APOSTLE OF SHRI SAI BABA
“Too many a gem of purest ray serene

The dark unfathomed caves of ocean bear”

- Thomas Gray

Among the less known apostle of Baba but no means the least important was Shri R. Narayana Swamy Konar of Shri Sai Baba Darbar, Wright Town, Jabalpur. He had been a devotee of Baba for pretty long.  However, the manner in which he came to be known to the general public as a blessed devotee of Baba is itself a ‘Leela’ through which as a first step Baba’s divinity came to be realised in these parts of the country.

Shri Konar was employed as Train Examiner in the S.E. Rly.  At Howbagh, Jabalpur.  One of the conditions of his service was a compulsory medical examination every year to determine physical fitness, especially the eye-sight.  In the winter of 1954, he appeared as usual before the medical board.   When his papers reached the office, it was found that he had failed in the eye-test.  He came to know of it through his friends.   It so happened that the date coincided with the scheduled date for his annual pilgrimage to Shirdi.  He had concluded that in any case, his services would be terminated on medical grounds and he would be pensioned off.  So, without waiting for official intimation and obtaining leave either, he went to Shirdi.

When Shri Konar was away, there was a flutter in the office.   In the first place, his boss was annoyed at the casual manner of his taking law into his own hands and absenting himself as well as leaving the station on his own.  This was strange in the case of a man known for his meticulous adherence to rules.   Now this breach would mean a break in the service and would adversely effect his pension and other benefits later on when he would be retiring in due course.    Such were the officer’s remarks.   Then some one, close to him, observed that the question did not arise, that for all practical purposes, Shri Koner could be considered to have retired from the date of the medical examination which had gone against him and his present breach was purely technical, not worthy taking note of “What the hell are you talking about ?”  flared up the officer.   “Who told you that the medical examination has gone against him ?   I have before me his category ‘A’ report and for aught I know.   Konar is good enough to go on atleast for a year more.    Find out if he has returned and send for him ?”   The clerk concerned and the few officials in the know of things were mystified and could not believe their eyes.    The most surprised was Shri Konar himself on being told that he was placed in category ‘A’ by the board.  Now, it dawned upon his mind that it was a clear case of Baba’s ‘Leela’ and that he had fulfilled Himself according to the shloka.

(He makes the blind see and the fools wise)

The officer was kindness itself to Shri Konar and asked him to put up his application for leave for ex-post facto sanction, and close the whole affair.

This was a turning point in Shri Konar’s life.   From now onwards, he not only became a magnet of Baba for attracting an ever increasing number of devotees of all ages and religions but also His instrument for achieving many miraculous results in the lives of those who sought his help.   It was for getting cured of bodily and mental ills, for success in examination and interviews for promotions, for redress from evils spirits, for getting children, for success in matrimonial affairs, etc.   Hence, one remarkable thing should be noted.    Guruji, as Shri Konar came to be known to one and all later on (some even called him Narayana Baba) continued to possess the clarity of vision of category ‘A’ till the last and never used glasses.  He only put a few drops of the ‘abhisheka thirtham’ in his eyes daily.   It acted as a panaceae for all eye troubles of others too.

As long as he was in service, the enclosed front verandah of the Rly. Quarters served the purpose of a Mandir for Baba’s worship.  A band of devotees, mostly young, helped and took part in the daily ‘aarti’.   Thursdays were of course special days.  Guruji had always a saffron cloth tied over his head during the ‘aarti’ or when giving Udhi to devotees.   He had become a disciple of Abdulla Baba (There is his photo in Abdulla Baba’s cottage at Shirdi) at Shirdi and imbibed from him some incantations which he used along with Udhi to cure ills and for exercising evil spirits.   He was simple and unassuming with a child like nature which put others at ease.   Till his retirement in 1958 he celebrated Ramanavami and Mahasamadhi Day festivals on a modest scale.  For the former, Baba’s idol was taken in procession around the mohalla.   It was during this period one night after ‘aarti (I think it was a Thursday) when guruji was chatting with one sadhu, he saw a fakir, who had all along been sitting some distance away, entering the enclosure.   As guruji was welcoming him, the latter turned to the sadhu and blessed him saying that in due course he would become known to the public and his true merit would be recognized by them.   Presently, the latter took leave and went away.   Guruji then offered to massage the legs and thigs of the guest to which the latter did not agree at first, threatening to go away.   However, guruji’s importunity softened him and he allowed it.   Just then, guruji’s elder sister, who was keeping house for him, came that side.   Seeing him with a fakir at such late hour, she asked him to tell the fakir to go away.   The latter told her that it was she who would be going away.   As guruji did not seem to heed her, she locked up all the doors, lest the self-invited guest should disappear with some articles, and went to bed.   The fakir then asked guruji to make some tea and partook it.   Before retiring, he asked for a ‘lota’ of water to be kept beside him for the night.

Early in the morning, when guruji woke up, the fakir was not to be seen.  It now became clear to guruji that it was Baba himself in disguise.   Seeing the locks in position, his sister too was now convinced about it.  The ‘lota’ was half-full with water.   Guruji preserved it carefully, using it for special purpose as a panacea and always kept it filled to the original level with Ganges water.   The lady passed away shortly after this occurrence making guruji realize that it was to this that the fakir (Baba) had cryptically referred.

Knowing him intimately as I did and having had the privilege of sharing mutual experiences of Baba’s Lilas with him, I can say without hesitation that as a rule, guruji preferred to treasure them in his heart.

After his retirement in 1958, guruji had a small house built with the amount of his gratuity supplemented by the financial help of one or two rich devotees.   The front hall with the verandah toop up the major portion to serve as Baba’s Mandir.   It is this that latter came to be known as Shri Sai Baba Darbar at Jabalpur.   It began drawing devotees from neighbouring places extending as far as Nepa nagar, especially fo rthe Ramanavami and Samadhi Day celebrations.   He had no issue.  To the best of my knowledge and belief, his relationship with his ‘Sahadharmini’ was platonic, his energy being sublimated in the service of Baba and His devotees.   Now he was available at all times of day and night to answer devotee’s calls and their attendance for the ‘aarti’ continued to increase, overflowing the varandah and spilling over into the street, especially on Thursday.  An hour in the afternoon, usually between 2.00 pm and 3.00 pm on Thursdays was reserved for the ‘Sumangalis’ ‘Suhasinis’ for the worship of Baba with ‘haldi, kumkum’.  The ‘aarti later in the evening, at 5.30 pm during October to March and 6.30 pm during April to September was preceded by ‘Ashtothara puja’ in which all, irrespective of caste or creed, took part.  The prasad consisting of a mixture of fried gram and parched rice from the Darbar along with the ‘Naivedya’ offerings of devotees was distributed to all.  It was a pleasant surprise to find the majority belonging to the younger age group.   With more and more persons from the business community, evincing keen interest, the celebrations for Ramanavami came to be an a grander scale than before extending to about a week, with daily cultural programmes and bhajans by various groups.   The main day’s procession with band and fire-works, covered a longer route along main roads, and took 5 to 6 hours to return to the Darbar.   On the final day, virgins were fed on a mass scale and prasadam distributed to be assembled devotees bringing the celebrations to a happy end.

The Mahasamadhi Day’s puja, a whole night function, also attracted a good number of devotees eliciting from them a generous response in terms of service and contributions.   Both the festivals were managed by a committee of responsible men freshly chosen every time.   Guruji made it a point not to handle the cash collections personally.   He also repeatedly turned down requests for creating a kind of trust with monthly contributions of members on the ground that it would inevitably lead to corruption of some kind and would detract from the dedicated approach currently obtaining.   As already indicated, he meticulously forbade the touching of his feet except by a select band of young devotees of transparent sincerity.

At the first meeting, Guruji gave the impression of being quite an ordinary man not worth fussing about.   I have the feeling that he consciously took pains to go unnoticed, as it were.  I myself must plead guilty to the charge of having thought like that in the beginning.   Only to those, who sought him out, attached themselves to him and believed in him did he come to be known by occasional flashes as a chosen agent of Baba.   Indeed, as will be seen from the examples to be set forth by and by, he communed with Baba and worlds emanating from is lips especially at ‘aarti’ time had the sanction of Baba and found fulfillment.   In other words, he was gifted with ‘Vaak Suddhi’ ***** and Baba evidently heard his prayers of intercession on behalf of those in trouble of any kind.   He asked such persons to write out their request ailment on slips of paper which he placed before Baba where they remained till he deemed it necessary.   For each of them he lighted an agarbathi daily and prayed.   In specific cases like an examination, interview, court-case or surgery where obviously thee was Baba’s sanction he offered special prayer for success by burning agarbathies continuously for the duration of each as notified in advance.   With all his childlike simplicity he was nobody’s fool.    He could easily see through cant and hypocrisy.   To persons without faith he would not give Udhi but tell them to take if from the receptacle for it before Baba.   For the different ills of persons who sought his help he administered Udhi to be taken with different vehicles ***** like water, milk, honey etc.  or Abhisheka thirtham of Baba’s Padukas with uniformly good results.   He also suggested special observances like fasts and complete reading of Sai Satcharita within a week and distribution of sweets at the end for overcoming obstacles and achieving success.   Where a person was not in a position to carry out the suggestion, he himself offered to do so in lieu.   In rare cases where obviously he did not have Baba’s approval, he declined to interfere.   Friday was the day of silence from 5.00 am to 5.00 pm and it was devoted to answering letters of out-station devotees in which he was prompt.   No letter ever went unanswered.   He was never known to be so sick till the fag-end of his life as to be obliged to avoid Baba’s ‘aarti’ though he was troubled with ailments incidental to the aging of the body.  Only a week or two before the end of his earthly sojourn, he returned from a visit to Nepanagar in response to the wishes of the devotees of that place.   He attained samadhi on 6-7-81 in his 87th year, (28-10-1894 to 6-7-1981)

SHIRDI SAI VIBHUTI LEELA

The holy ash from the eternal fire at Shirdi is curing many diseaes miraculously.   The troubles of those, who meditate on Sai Baba with firm faith and great devotion disappear without fail.   An incident is given below showing the miraculous powers of the vibhuthi of Sai Baba.

Shri Janardhan Reddy a resident of Bolaram, Secunderabad, is a contractor.   At first, he did not believe in Sai Baba; but his wife Sulochana Devi had great devotion and firm faith in Him.   She was daily worshipping Sai Baba with deep reverence.   Janardhan Reddy had the vices of smoking and driking liquor.   Due to excessive drinking, he had an attack of jaundice.   His kidney was also affected and he developed diabetese, but he did not inform his family members about it.   One day on 14th May, 1965 at 7. am his condition deteriorated.   His family members admitted him in Osmania Hospital.   Janardhan Reddy was only 32 years old at that time, Blood and glucose were transfused to him.   As urine was blocked, it had to be removed through a tube.   His children were terrified at his condition which worsened day by day.   He went into coma and the doctors lost all hopes of saving him.

His wife Sulochana Devi went to Sadguru Dr. Sai Kumar and prayed to him to visit her husband.   Sadguru went to the hospital and examined him and said.   “The chances of his servival are meager.  Only God can save him.”  Sulochana Devi pleaded with Sadguru to save her husband.  Consoling her, Sadguru said “There is nothing in my hands.   May baba help you”  and gave her a small packet of vibhuthi.

As directed by Sadguru, Sulochana Devi rubbed the vibhuthi on her husband’s legs, chest, stomach and waist, chanting the holy words, “Om Sai, Shirdi Sai, Dwarakamai” with devotion.   She repeated by holy words upto 1.00 am as she was determined to save her husband’s life.  But after that she fell fast asleep upto 3.00 am.

During this period between 1.00 am and 3.00 am Janardhan Reddy had a strange dream.   Sai Baba appeared in the dream and poured a herbal mixture in both his nostrils.   When Sulochana Devi woke up at 3.00 am she saw the pillow of her husband wet and yellow.  A yellow fluid was flowing from her husband’s nose.  Becoming afraid, Sulochana Devi called the doctors on duty.   They fond improvement in Shri Reddy’s pulse; but none of them realised the intervention of Sai Baba.   Next day, Janardhan Reddy regained consciousness for sometime.  Once again, there was yellow fluid oozing from his nose.   The doctors examined the patient; but they were unable to diagnose the case correctly.   On the third night, another strange incident happened.   As usual, Sulochana Devi applied vibhuthi to her husband’s body and sitting on the edge of the bed she was chanting the holy words “Om Sai, Shirdi Sai, Dwarakamai” At about midnight, Janardhan Reddy was blessed by another strange dream.   Baba appeared in the dream and with his divinehand applied vibhuthi on Reddy’s body.   Then Baba kicked him with His foot.   Janardhan Reddy fell from the bed with a big sound.   Hearing the noise Sulochana Devi woke up from her meditation and was surprised to see her husband lying on the floor.   The tubes supplying oxygen, glucose and blood to him along with the tubes used to remove urine were all lying on the bed as if some one removed them carefully.   Wishing to know whether her husband was alive or not, Sulochana Devi went near him.   She was pleasantly surprised to hear her husband repeating the name of Sai Baba.   He was saying, “please all of you repeat the name “Om Sai, Shirdi Sai, Dwarakamai”, worship Baba.   Baba !  Baba ! don’t leave me”   Tears rolled down Sulochana Devi’s eyes for she was very much amazed and happy to see her husband chant the name of her Lord Sai, who till that moment did not believe in Baba.  The doctors were surprised to see Janardhan Reddy speaking.   They enquired of Janardhan Reddy, as to who removed the oxygen cylinder, glucose and the blood tubes.   Janardhan Reddy told them, “My Lord, My Baba came last night and removed them.”    The doctors were unable to understand Janardhan Reddy’s words.   The chief doctor was also not able to diagnose the patient’s case correctly.   To his astonishment, he found the patient’s breathing was fast improving and there was no necessity to give him glucose or blood.   In another 14 days, Janardhan Reddy recovered completely.   X-ray, blood and urine tests revealed that everything was normal in his health and was therefore discharged from the hospital.

At last, the day dawned when Janardhan Reddy, who thought Baba to be a mere fakir, prayed to Him with deep reverence and Love.   He became an ardent devotee of Baba and gave up the vices of smoking and drinking.  Sulochana Devi brought him to Sadguru and expressed her gratitude to him.   “I cannot describe the greatness and leelas of Shirdi Sai Baba.   The all merciful Baba answers the call of His pure devotees.   We msut pay our respectful thanks to Baba whose vibhuthi is miraculously curing thousands of devotees”.

Janardhan Reddy, Sulochana Devi and their children are now leading happy lives, leaving everything to the will of the Omnipotent, Omnipresent and Ominiscient Sai Baba.

KINDNESS

I feel that I am one of the favourites of my Lord at Shirdi.  As my name is Kashinath, the relation between Lord Sai and my blood has nearest affection as seen in many a cases.   I was not aware of His ‘Leela’ but ‘Leela’ came my way and I was drawn to Him like a bird.   My fate had no support of any elders till now but always I was protected by my favourite Lord.   Few instances will show how Baba loves his followers.

I am a poor clerk in the Bhilai Steel Plant and my salary, during such costly days, is very meager to manage a luxurious life.   My daughter Kum. Vandana, who was studying in Xth standard, was never expected to be married so early.   It is ‘Baba’ who got her married within 15 days, on 28-4-1977.   With a rich family of 4 to 5 lacs property.   Now she is happy at her house with two issues.   Besides this it is miraculous to mention here that at the time of her every delivery my Lord had helped and protected us nicely.   At her first delivery on 15-9-80, I was a usual reading ‘Sai Chartravli’ and while reading I felt that I should finish my reading early to attend the hospital.  And my mind pressed me early to finish my reading.   A baby was born to my daughter on the same day i.e. 15-9-80 at 12.20 pm.   The timing of the birth was better after 2 minutes only as per our panchang.   Baba wanted me to consume time and continue to read the pothi peacefully, but my haste resulted with the happening mentioned above.

The incident on the Namkaran day also in noteworthy.   There was accident in the village of the daughter and my son-in-law was injured for which he had to undergo a major operation due to bone fracture.   However, he was protected due to Baba’s kindness.   Let me tell you again that at the time of the second delivery of my daughter, I maintained my mental peace while reading the pothi and the result was wonderful.   On 25-4-1983 at Karnuna Hospital the birth of the child took place when I was reading the pothi at page 502, Adhyaya 36 reading as “Sakharam Aurangabadkar of Solapur had no issues and Shyama tells Baba to give one son to the lady other-wise Shyama will break the same coconut fruit on the fore-head of Baba.”   Baba laughed and promised me so I felt that it was a sign for me also.   It is a wonder that my daughter this time also got a son. My favourite Lord is so deeply looking at every one and giving us life; but in our life we are unable to pay anything to Him.  He is single handed looking every where and at every-body with his only two hands and two eyes; but lot of eyes and hands are unable to trace Him or pay Him SHRADDHA and SABURI ! I cannot express my gratitude in words; but may I tell you sir, that being an ordinary man born in a very poor family, My Lord Shri Sai had given me a melodious voice, which is a gift to me and at a lot of places I had an occasion to, sing His songs.   My favourite view is always to read ‘Sai Leela,’ poems and try to sing them.   I was fortunate to sing many a times in Saidarbar Shirdi.   I had earlier written my previous experience also in the Diwali Sai-Leela of NOV – DEC 76 at page 83.

          Again with high affection, I request my Lord Shri Sai to excuse us all for any type of mistakes that we may commit and let our Baba remain with us for ever.

A DEVOTEE'S EXPERIENCE

By Saisudha
Sai Baba of Shirdi is not merely a Sadguru but verily Sri Rama. He has not only been guiding me in both official and domestic work but has saved my life on two occasions.

It was in 1954, when I was in my early twenties. 1 was under­taking a trip to Tirupati from Madras by the morning passenger train. My uncle, then Post Master General of Madras Presidency, asked one of his clerks to book my ticket and see that I boarded the train. It was a Saturday, and though I did not wish to start from home at Rahu Kal—it was about 9'30 A. M. I had no other choice. When I arrived at the station with Mr. Nair, the clerk, the train was almost about to leave. Somehow he managed to push my big box in the nearest third class carriage and waved good, bye and left. The guard had blown the whistle. When I was about to settle my things, I was horrified at the sight of four gamb­lers sitting in the compartment which was otherwise empty. They were busy playing cards and obviously did not notice my presence. Young as I was, with no other lady passenger in the train, I was at my wits end. I came and stood at the doorstep praying itently to Shri Ram. I could not get down from the train, nor could I stay within for fear of the gamblers. God verily sends help to those in distress.

The train had just started moving when a young couple was rushing towards me to board the train. I helped them with their - luggage. After a few minutes by which time I had gathered a little courage I surveyed the compartment again, for the fear had not totally left me. Lo ! Baba's miracle, the suspicious elements had already disappeared. I then relaxed after sending heartfelt thanks to Baba for thus protecting my life from the goondas.

The second incident took place in June 1971.   I was making an air dash from Delhi to Bhopal to meet my husband, who was about to leave for Hyderabad. I had despatched a telegram 24 hours in advance informing of my arrival by the Fokker Friend— ship. The plane, already delayed by three hours, took off at about. 1 '30 p. m. I was just trying to relax with Sai Charita in my hands, for it was my wont to read one chapter daily from the book. As I had not done it earlier, I wished to complete my reading in the plane itself. Hardly twenty minutes had passed since the flight started, I could feel the air getting hotter under my feet. The two air hostesses rushed to the cock-pit. Seeing them emotionally dis­turbed, I started feeling nervous. My heart began to beat faster when the air hostesses rolled the carpet covering the passage and the co-passengers were busy preparing themselves for any emergency. I was the only lady passenger and I started chanting Sai Ram loudly ! I moved to a front seat, for the tension within me was increasing. After about ten minutes of hard work when the co-pilot, steward and air hostesses rectified the defect, which they alone knew, I could see the crew heaving a big sigh of relief. To relieve the passengers' anxiety soft drinks were supplied to us. It was smooth going afterwards. The plane touched Gwalior and finally Bhopal. With fond hopes of meeting my husband, I emerged from the plane. Imagine my confusion when I saw no signs of my husband. The Indian Airlines Office staff was kind enough to contact my husband. When he received the telephone call, he rushed to the air-port. He was worried that something had gone amiss, for he felt I could not have otherwise undertaken such a sudden trip. Obviously my telegram did not reach him. It reached after my arrival, i. e. after 30 hours !

I once again thanked my beloved Sai Baba for not only saving my life but the lives of all the passengers. But for this divine help, there could have been a major air-disaster.

NANASAHEB RASNE - NAMAKARAN AND AKSHARABHYASA CEREMONY PERFORMED IN PERSON BY SRI SAI BABA
Nanasaheb Rasne (alias Daulat Shah, alias Dattatreya), the builder of the Sri Sai Baba temple at Shivaji Nagar in Pune - where Baba’s tooth is kept - lives forever in the hearts of Sai devotees. Baba had given him the name even before his mother bore him. Let us now read about this great leela of Sri Sai Baba.

Sri Damodar Savalram Rasne (Nana’s father) married again when his first wife failed to bear a child. This second wife also failed to present him with a child. When he consulted astrologers, they examined his horoscope and found that there was no possibility for him to have children. He then visited Sri Sai Baba and begged him to grant him children. Sri Sai Baba gave him four mangoes as prasad and blessed him saying, “Give these to your second wife and you will get a total of eight children, the first two of whom will be boys. Name them Daulat Shah and Than Shah respectively.” Damodar Rasne wrote these details in his diary as soon as he reached home. Within a year, in 1901, a male child was born just as Baba had foretold. Damodar Rasne took the boy to Baba for his darshan when he was fifteen months old and asked him what name should be given to him, perhaps in the hope that Baba might give him a Hindu name this time instead of the Muslim name he had given earlier. Baba replied, “I told you long ago to name the child Daulat Shah. You have also written the fact in your diary on page 3.” Damodar Rasne named his son Daulat Shah as Baba wished, but also added the Hindu name Dattatreya.

In 1906 Damodar Rasne took his son for Sri Sai Baba’s darshan again. At that time the boy was five years old and Baba gave him a slate and a pencil. Catching hold of the boy’s podgy fingers he wrote HARI on the slate, guiding the boy, helping him to trace the words on the slate.

Why did Baba give a Muslim name such as Daulat Shah to a boy born in a conservative Hindu family? Sri Sai Baba’s deeds and leelas are indeed inscrutable and beyond the ken of mere mortals, as he himself stated on many occasions. However, we can learn many lessons from this act of Baba. The unity of all religions and the maintenance of mutual esteem and love between them is one of the main features of Sri Sai’s incarnation. Nowadays people are being named in such a manner as to indicate their religion and caste. If the followers of one religion were to start using the names of another, we would see the differences between the various religions and castes start to crumble - at least outwardly. This may be the first step towards the unity of all religions as desired by Sai Baba.

Only then would the great poet’s words - “May the entire world become one home, may the differences be destroyed, may all religions disappear and may only wisdom stand and shine forth,” come true.

Few weeks back, my sister-in-law's father was sick and doctor's had given up, she was very sad. It is our habit, whenever we have some problem, we write it in a slip and place it in Satcharita. Always the problem get solved. So we told my sister-in-law, to write a slip about her father and place it in Satcharita. She wrote to Baba please either cure her father or take him to you peacefully, as we can not see him suffer. One day, in the morning her father was not well, she felt she must bring doctor to examine him, so she drove to doctors home and was waiting for the doctor in her car. A stranger came with Baba's photo and was asking her to see Baba. He uttered this several times. At the same time she came to know her father has expired at home. We all felt it was Baba who came and took him.

A few weeks ago when my dog fell off 2 stories, he was bleeding badly and we were certain that he would not survive the fall. We rushed him to the hospital where we were asked to leave. I remember coming home and begging Sai for his life. I told Sai that if anything happens to him I will stop believing in helping anybody, animals and people alike because after having rescued my dog if he was to die in this manner it would be terrible. I asked for Sai leela and then a miracle happened. I went to the hospital and my eyes could not believe what I saw and heard. My pet had absolutely no injuries, no fractures, no head injury nothing except for 1 broken tooth! This has to be Sai leela since it is impossible to believe that anybody could have escaped such a bad fall! I thank Sai with all my heart!

Bharani
Baba Sai, Thank you for providing this job to my husband. We had been praying continuously for the past two years without loosing out on our belief in Baba. Sai devotees, please don't loose hope, Baba is here to help us, I had undergone lots of pain and agony but was praying Baba without losing hope through the most depressing and no win situations, and finally Baba has blessed us by giving this job.

Sai devotee
This is my thanks giving to my Sai for taking care of my husband during his operation, making it possible for me to visit Sai Dham, Kandivili on Ram Navami day, blessing me always in every small things that I think about. I really feel your presence around me, and I feel so nice about it.

My son did not do well in his exams playing internet games and watching TV all the time. He failed in exam, he felt ashamed and guilty, attempted to commit suicide twice, later he left the house. We are all devotees of Sai baba. We prayed Baba for the return of our son. Luckily, by the grace of Baba both his attempts to commit suicide have failed and he came back home after three weeks. Now, he is doing very well in his studies. We pray Baba to shower his blessings on our family.

I run a medium sized IT company. We had a major Government related Employee problem. This could have bankrupted the business. The issue happened before I took over the company, but I was responsible for the resolution now. The attorneys were giving a pessimistic view and I was very concerned. I generally do not ask Baba for specific help. However, after this problem started, I had a chance to take the darshan of padukas of Swami Samarth Akkalkot Maharaj in Mumbai. I decided that if the problem is resolved I will write in devotees experiences. By Baba's grace, the issue got dropped with minimal damages to us. This greatly surprised me and is similar to Shri Dhumal winning a case for a Baba devotee! Great is Baba's grace

Ramkumar
I have been having health problems lately and I was worried if something that happened in my young age would have affected my heart. Doctors asked me to take echocardiogram and I was so concerned. My wife was reading the Satcharitra (which she had started a couple of days earlier and vowed to complete within a week) while I went in for the Echo test and it happened that she was reading a particular chapter (Chapter 21, I guess) that states about how the devotees were cured of their diseases. What a wonder! We were hopeful that Baba would protect me. We were so relieved when the report came out and it was normal. Though I am still having issues with my health, the doctors aren't able to find out the exact cause. But I keep praying to Baba and I am very confident he is going to be with me and bless me.

Lakshmi
I have been married for 8 months now. With Baba's blessings I have got a wonderful husband. But, after marriage due to professional reasons we had to live in different cities in India. I used to travel every weekend and I was kind of stressed out in the last 8 months. Finally, we have decided to look for a job in the same place in USA. I was working for one MNC company in India. When I informed that I might move to USA, my company offered me a job in the same group in USA by seeing my past performance without even conducting interview. It was just a miracle. Soon after my job got finalized, my husband got a job in the same place where my office is. This all just happened with Baba's grace. He has planned so well for both of us and we are sure that he will be with us through out rest of our lives. I visit Shirdi 4 to 5 times in a year. We went to Shirdi in March 2005 to take his blessings before leaving India. Due to huge crowd they were not allowing to touch the Samadhi. I wanted to keep my offer letter on Samadhi. I gave it to Pujari over there. Not sure whether he will keep it on Samadhi or not. To my surprise, he kept my offer letter on Samadhi for a long time and then he kept it on the feet of Saibaba and gave me beautiful roses which were there near Baba's feet along with the offer letter. I took them as Baba's Blessings. I prayed Baba that I want to touch the Samadhi before I leave but not sure how it will be possible. I went for second darshan on the same day. I couldn't believe when they were letting people to touch the Samadhi in my second darshan. My husband has become great devotee of Baba too and he also started reading Sai Satcharitha everyday. Baba is part of my life. There is no life without Him.

SaiRam!
Since I was 10 yrs old I am a believer of Sai Babaji. He has always
shown me the path whenever I feel lost. Last year I went to Rajasthan
on a vacation...before leaving I prayed to Babaji to reach the
destination before me. We reached there in the afternoon, and in the
evening we went for site seeing...while coming back I saw a big
portrait of Babaji, that too in a place where no body goes. I could not
believe my eyes. He had actually answered my prayers. Another incident
where in I had to travel by bus and I m very scared to go by buses, so
I again requested Babaji to be with me and to my surprise the ticket
checker had Sai Baba printed on all the tickets. Once again Babaji
proved that he is with His devotees always. We just need to trust Him
with full faith.
Jai Sai Shri Sai Jai Jai Sai

SaiRam!
I am happy to inform that today I experienced Sai's miracle. I have
always been blessed child of Sai. Dear Saibanisaji you are truly
blessed. Yesterday I have read many of your letters and especially your
saying that Sai normally appear in our dream during brahmimuhurtam
attracted my attention. Baba appeared in my dream many time during that
period. Today on Thursday I had ream in which I saw astalakshmi's
appear in my pooja room. My mother called me since I was sleeping.
Suddenly as soon as I entered pooja room (all in my dream) I saw beeja
akhara's appearing in Sai's photo.

After waking up I told the same to my husband though he believes Sai,
he said may be these are your illusions since you think lot about Sai.
I said it is not possible, my dreams are true. Then we did pada pojja
to Sai. the my husband said if everything is true today Baba should
appear before us in person and tell us something I said Baba will
definitely  appear. I have a beautiful white Idol of Sai. It is
Kamadhenuvu to us. Whenever I ask some wish and put flower on it. My
wish is sanctioned.  Until I ask something the flower won't stand on
the idol. Today I asked Baba's darshan to us.

We were on the way to office. Then suddenly a black American lady
walked beside us. She seemed lost in trance didn't care of her
dressing. She wore her bag in very weird manner. I got scared seeing
her and thought in my mind I shouldn't see her lest she will talk to
me.  I walked very fast.  But the lady (she is in fact our loved Baba
Himself) called me even then I didn't turn back. But she kept calling
miss have a look. Then I stopped before her. My husband is in shock.
She asked what job you are doing I said I am a programmer in medicine
staff. She saw my id. She said don't wear the black sweater you are
wearing always wear blue one. You will get long term job in market you
will progress in your carrier. I said thanks to her many times. She
didn't care and walked away.

My husband was shocked with surprise and said indeed Baba answers our
call as soon as we seek him. Dear friends this is the love of our Sai.
Just have faith in Him and He will be with us always.
Dear members of Saidarbar  web site http://www.saidarbar.org is blessed
with Sai's love and power. Thank you very much

Articles By Devotees : my experiences with Baba
Posted by Anonymous on 2006/2/3 21:40:44 (183 reads)
My name is Madhavi Latha. My whole life is the example of Baba's blessings. This is the first experience of Baba's blessings. In the year 1990,in March, i was about to give my final year B.Sc. practical examinations. I went to main building of Koti Womens College, administrative block and collected timetable for practicals and went home. I didnt checked it with zoology department practicals examination time table. According to my time table, on that particular day i went to the lab for exam, there i came to know that for our batch, the exam was already over the day before.At that moment, i felt as if my whole life is finished, i didnt know what to do and whom to ask. I started crying. Then after 20 mins, one of my friends also came. we both went to Head of the Department, and told the whole story. She told that she is going to conduct a special exam for both of us along with another batch of students. That time i felt as if Baba has come to me in her form. We gave the exam,and finaly, i got distinction in that year.

Dear Saibandus,

It happened with me recently that I experienced something very wonderful. My brother is 34 years old and was not getting married at all. The girls would reject him for some reason or the other and this was very depressing to all the family memebers. Finally he met a girl and was waiting for an answer when i prayed Sai baba that this should work out and withing 10 minutes there was a call from him that this worked out and now they decided to get married in oct. Thanks to baba for everything he is doing to my family.

My live experiences with Sai ram


SAICHARAN

Dear Sai Devotee's,

I was also graced by Sai ram like you all. This incident goes back in
year 1999-2000.
I was offered a job in US and for some odd reasons my departure was
getting delayed month after month. I was frustrated.


I decided to visit Shirdi and Sai dham in kopargaon near shirdi, where
my guru Shri Dhondiram Baba lives, he had many such Sai experiences and
dreams ( Saakshatkar)
When he decided to build Sai dham with his pension money ( he was
working in sugar factory ) the architect told him that it is not
possible to build Sai dham with 1 lakh rupees, you will need much more
than that and to his statement, Dhondiram Baba told him you start
working on architectural design, Mandir ( dham ) will sure be
established.


SaiBaba's devotee's came along and now SaiDham is fully functional in
Kopargaon near Shirdi.


Now going back to my live experience, before going to shirdi I reached
kopargaon and went to meet my guru, Shri Dhondiram Baba. It was one of
those usual mornings where people have gathered to talk to Dhondiram
baba in dham ( This Dham is located in farms ) when we reached there in
auto rickshaw, there was only one metador van standing by.


There was one Sai devotee from banglore had come there to meet
dhondiram baba, and few local poeple. ( Me and my family got to know
Dhondiran Baba from my sisters's inlaw, who live in kopargaon and they
had very close bonding with Dhondiram baba)


I was there with my niece and one of her friend, so 3 of us sitting
next to Dhondiram Baba. We did not ask him any questions or queries
that we had. After a while he told me so are you going to meet your
sister's in-laws hereafter, I replied no ! we would like to go to
shirdi from here. As I dropped my sentence, He said, When you reach
Shirdi first go to Prasaad Place, take prasaad ( bhojan ) and then go
to mandir to seek aahirwad from SaiRam. I wondered usually we go to
mandir first and then take prasaad later. Why Dhondiram baba telling me
this other way round ( he emphasized his wordings few more times ) I
said, will do the same without any changes.


We didn't bring any vehicle, So Dhondiram baba requested Banglore
devotee to drop us near kopargaon bus depot. Before we were leaving
from SaiDham in koparaon there was a big lot of devotee's from
pandharpur had come there to meet dhondiram baba.


We reached Shirdi in no time since it was 9 km from kopargaon. We
stopped exactly next to prasaad bhandaar, so we proceeded immediately
to take prasaad. We were having prasaad bhojan ( it must have taken us
10 minutes to eat prasaad ). I was rushing to wash my hands and what I
saw there. I was stonedead or you can say amazed. I saw Dhondiram Baba
next to me. I asked him what is he doing here ? He said. He is here
since the morning helping in the kitchen to cook prasaad. We
immediately said, but we just met you in kopargaon ! The doorman of
prasaad bhandar told us that Dhondiram baba is here since 6 am helping
us in cooking. We'd got shock of our life.


How can 1 person be at 2 places at the same time. When we left
kopargaon there was no vehicle outside Saidham which would have got
dhondiram baba here. It is way far inside the farms, so it would take
anyone at least 45 minutes to reach shirdi.


I really didn't wanted to use my logic. In my mind I was thinking, It
is Sai Ram who wanted me realize his existence. I was blessed.


Then Dhondiram Baba said, what are your plans now, are you going to
attend duparti or go later for normal darshan. We said, we'll attend
duparti. So we left without washing our hands or didn't even drank any
water ( we were in that pleasant experience move)


He went in from the back door to get something. Meanwhile my niece was
not sure of this experience so just for reassurance, she asked doorman
of Sai Mandir that Did he see Dhondiram Baba now ? to her question, he
replied, he is here since the morning, I let him go through back door
at least few times. we were then sure of one amazing experience of
life.


Dhondiram baba came back from mandir and he handed over one coconut and
Udi to me. He rushed to back road of mandir saying this that he had
leave. I followed him till the backside of mandir but he was vanished.


When i attended the duparti, with my closed eyes I saw all Shub Chinh
like Om, ShubLaabh all these traveling in bright light in front of
me.......that was absolute dhayaan experience when we were sitting in
front of Sai Ram.


Om Sai Ram

'If you look at me, I look at you"

(J.R. LAROIYA, INDOSE) —Short Story

It is rightly said that even godliness is not possible without the kind favour of the Lord. Nek Ram was one such person. He had never believed in God. He would hate even to pass nearby a temple or any such pious place. If by chance he would come across any he would runaway uttering filthy language he could think of at the moment It was difficult to analyse the precise reasons for such an attitude on the part of Nek Ram though it could have something to do with his bad luck and untold miseries which he had to face right from his childhood. While just an infant of about 3 years he lost both his father and mother in a serious road accident though he himself had a miraculous escape. He was brought up as an orphan by some near relative who however, lookup this uncalled for responsibility cursing God in every walk of life Generally half fed and mostly ill-clad doing odd jobs here and there, Nek Ram some­how grew up a young man and married a girl at the direction of his "uncle" who soon afterwards ordered him to leave his house to find his own way out NeK Ram had to shift to a Jhuggi Jopri area of the town with his newly-married wife who was a staunch devote of Shirdi Sai Baba to the great annoyance of Nek Ram. He would loose no time in making it clear to Champa, his wife that he had no faith in any god "But Baba is no ordinary god—He is the Lord the saviour helping one and all who just looks at Him," would Champa plead. "I do not care for such humling. It is used for such silly persons like you to take to every torn dick harry and waste time." reiterated Nek Ram. Neat evening when Nek Ram returned home, he found his wife busy praying before a beautiful full-size photo of Shri Sai Baba Obviously, she had spent a part of Nek Ram's poor earnings. Nek Ram's anger knew no hounds. He pounced upon the poor woman and beat her mercilessly till she fell down sensless. Disgusted he ran out of his jhuggi towards the river bridge with intention to end his own life by plunging into the deep waters. It was pretty dark when he reached the place. While looking for the suitable spot for his mission Nek Ram was attracted by some strange shrills of a child mixed with low but hard threatening male voices Practically effortlessly, Nek Ram proceeded cautiously towards the direction of the sound suddenly he found himself before two awfully cruel-looking persons sand witching a small boy of about 6 "So you have come" said one of them with a wicked-smile, "hurry up and out of with the money if you want your child back alive. It did not take much time for Nek Ram to understand that the gangsters had kidnapped the child for ransom and had mistaken him to be the unfortunate father Nek Ram leaped towards them with a very loud cry like a tiger in such a way that they were taken aback and, anticipating more serious troubles ahead, took to their heals leaving the child behind Nek Ram took charge of the timid looking child. His eyes immediately spotted a small locket containing a beautiful photo of Shirdi Sai Baba sitting on a stone hanging tightly around his neck. Nek Ram felt the thrill of Baba's physical presence before him as if blessing him personally. He realized that it was the kindness of the All-powerful Baba that he could save an innocent child from the clutches of abductors. His head automatically bowed before him and prayed that He may grant him power to restore the child to his parents carrying him at his shoulders he started running towards the town. Hardly had he gone half a kilometer when he saw a frightened man bewildering in the darkness. He happened to be the unfortunate father of the child on his way to meet the gangsters to fulfill their demand On getting back his dear child through Nek Ram he was overwhelmed with joy. He requested Nek Ram to accompany him to his house which he readily agreed The man in question was not an ordinary man He was a rich factories owner of the Panjab who had come to that town to meet his poorer relatives when this accident took place He was so much moved with Nek Rani's life story that he immediately offered him a good job in his factory in the Punjab & requested him to accompany him right then, Nek Ram could not agree. He did not know what had happened to his wife whom he had rendered unconscious in the jhuggi. The rich man accompanied Nek Ram to the jhuggi where they found her hale and hearty sitting before the Baba's photo praying. Seeing Nek Ram she was about to push aside Baba's photo but Nek Ram stopped her "You don't have to do so now, Champa Baba has opened my eyes with his grace. By my more looking at Him even with hatred he bestowed His kindness on me. He has not only saved my life and honour but also saved the life of a small innocent child. Let me bow before Him and beg Him to excuse me for my ignorance about Him."

Cancer IRRECOVERABLE DISEASE
(Summarised)

Recovered by “Shree - SAI BABA" favour !

Calamites and diseases never come alone my wife Mrs. Saraswatibai has been suffering from Diabetes for about last 16 years. One and the same medicine for such a chronic disease becomes gradually of little use to a patient, another medicine is then adopted and then another and so on.

My wife has sufficient experience during these years of trials and now for the last to 4 to 5 year's she is taking medicine suggested by her Doctors. She is also suffering from Blood Pressure since long and is using Adafphin; (Plain) tablet's regularly.

Two years back, she got an abrupt attack by Para-Paralysis to her face but gradually recovered with in 4 to 5 months without any special treatment. In addition to these two enemies, she is suffering for the iast ten years .from Breast Cancer. She is still fighting with this Demon foe so many X-Rays taken and major operation conducted by India's specialist But in vain.

We surrendered ourselves to Shree "SAI BABA" My wife's sister's husband was a staunch devotee of SHIRDI SAI BABA for the last 28 years. He gave us instantly on our request Udi from Shirdi. He is a frequent visitor of .Shirdi, He is a Timber merchant at Bel gaou, and once he was totally in loss and was on the verge on being Bankrupt. He was advised by somebody to bow himself to Shirdi Sai Baba's Temple at Shirdi. He did so, and safety got out of the insolvancy instantly by the grace of Shirdi Sai Baba. Now he is doing a leading business.

We got "Udi'' from him on the verge of the 2nd operation. We used it regularly having faith that she will be perfect alright.

Inspite of her being a patient of diabetes and of blood pressure too, she recovered from cancer after surgical operation. We say it is all due to Sai KRERA and His "Udi". We still make its use daily, regularly for the last 9 years with full faith.

We decided to go to Shirdi for Baba's Ashirwad (blessing). We can say with full faith, It is Sangeevani in cure of all diseases.

My wife was duly operated upon and cancer knot was got totally uprooted. Though due to Sugar in blood her wound took some time to heal up.

After all man, man is mortal. He  or she has to die, one  day or other.    As you know every creature on earth taking a birth  has  to  submit  himself to death one day or the other.    My wife is about 62 years. She is still too weak and pale.

We pray to Sai-Baba with "Udi" in hand. She Swallow it and Smears it to her fore-head.

It gives her Solace and Peace.

We all pray to Baba to Shower His Blessing on us all.

Now we admit cancer is irrecoverable disease is truely recovered by Shirdi Sai Baba favour and blessings, with the use of His Sangeevani Udi.

JAI       SAI       RAM I am at Baba's feet

Rama
I am a pharmacy graduate from India. I have moved to Canada in February 2002. I had a dream to establish a pharmacy store in Baba's name something like "Shirdi Sai Baba Drug Mart". I had applied for a franchise for a leading Drug store chain in Canada. The process to get a store (franchise) involves couple of steps. Firstly completing certain management courses and secondly, be successful in at least two interviews with head office. With the blessings and grace of Shri Shirdi Sai Baba I have got a store in Brampton, Canada with just one interview, I had only completed one course out of three management courses that I was supposed to do.

Most of us know the importance of a resume to apply for any job in North America (more so in Canada). It is because of Lord Sainath's blessings even without forwarding my resume to the head office I had been chosen from the four prospective candidates who applied for the franchise. I got this news on Wednesday on 10th May 2006 around 6:15 pm. I have decided to name the store as "Shirdi Sai Baba Drug Mart". On the same day at around 8:15 pm I was involved in a car accident. I was driving the car when a pickup truck crashed into the rear left hand side of my car. Again, with Baba's blessings, none of the passengers (I and my friends) was seriously hurt and all of us are safe. If the accident had occurred a couple of seconds before I do not know what would have happened to my friends and me. Baba, please bless all your devotees and help me to increase my faith and devotion towards You.
 

 
Sai baba bless me to also open "Shirdi Sai Baba Drug Mart".

Jai Sai Ram! May Baba bless us all!


At 7:28 AM, Anonymous said…

I came to US on an intra company transfer visa in 2000 and use to visit the Balaji temple at Pittsburg regularly.
I was trying to transfer this current visa to H1 but was not successful. In the year 2004, one of my relatives
took us to the Sai Baba temple at Pittsburg which we were not aware till then. After the archana the temple
priest gave us a photo of "Sai Baba sitting on the stone". We go this photo and kept it in our pooja along with other
dieties. From that day onwards things changed for us.
1. My sister told us about the Sai Sat Charitra book which me and my wife are reading in regularly to this day.
2. We got our visa transferred to H1 within a couple of months which I was trying for 3 years .
3. My current visa was expiring on Dec 2004 and I had to get a job on my new H1 visa before the expiration. With Baba's grace
I got the lucky break in Nov 2004.

The photo in our house has a strange grace. YOu feel like looking at Baba's photo again and again and so many times tears
just flow out of your eyes. This photo of Baba has some magic in it which I cannot explain but can only experience.
All of the above incidents has only increased my faith in Baba.

Bow to Shri Sai, Peace be to all.

Sai baba let your holy lotus feet be our sole refuge.OMSAIRAM

DEVOTEE'S EXPERIENCE

April to mid-August, 2001, was a jinxed period for Sangeeta, as there were many hurdles but at last she could make it to Shirdi. Here is a first person account. On Thursday the 16th August where Baba gave her some extraordinary experiences:
? “As we went to the Samadhi, my daughter was carrying some sweets on behalf of my two nieces, one aged three and the other one-and-a-half years old. As she handed them over to the priest, he at once ripped open the packet, put some in the prasad container, distributed some to the other three priests sitting at the Samadhi and rolled up his own share in a polythene bag and hid it under the cloth which was covering the Samadhi which is not the usual practice. As he did this, I got a feeling as if Baba had shown extreme love and told us how much these sweets meant to Him”.

? "Then that night while doing Parikrama at Nandadeep, I saw two or three people coming with hands folded in Pranam and heard some one saying “Baba Aaa Gaye”. I saw that there were two security guards looking closely at the ground. I halted for a moment and saw a small snake wriggling at the sides of Nandadeep. I also folded my hands in pranam and continued my parikrama. Later, when I wanted to find out about it, I was told that the snake was escorted out of the gate of the Sansthan Complex and we returned safely to Delhi. It is as if Baba had arranged to take care of us from the snake through the guards. Had we come little earlier it could have been dangerous. We came back to Delhi on Saturday the 18th of August very fulfilled and satisfied by our Shirdi visit mentally thanking Baba for the time we got with Him.

? "On the following Monday, the 20th August, some time past noon, an incident took place which made us realise that Shri Sai had protected us from a calamity which was to befall us. On Monday, at my parent's house, two men rang the doorbell. They had a slip of paper, which had my father's name and home address on it. On the reverse were listed some items which they said were sold at their shop. They asked my mother “Bauji hain kya”? She answered "Abhi nahin aye". The next question was "Mataji?" She did not know what overcame her but for some reason she did not answer that question.. They handed over the slip to her. She put it under the idol of Ganeshjee, which is placed on a shelf at the entrance of the house, below a life size portrait of Baba in the Dwarkamai pose and was about to close door when they asked her for some water. She closed the door, went inside and got water for¬ them. As she was handing over the glasses of water, she saw another man standing at the foot of the staircase.

Just as she turned to close the door, they pushed her into the house. At this she shouted and cried for help but no one came. They pushed her into the kitchen and beat her up. They switched on the gas without igniting the burners and wanted to suffocate her by closing the kitchen door, but the door had been removed a few days ago to facilitate easy movement. Being frustrated, they pulled her hair, used abusive language and beat her up. During this period of nearly 15 to 20 minutes, she continued to scream 'Bachao Bachao' but no one came to her rescue. Baba had known of this all along, as how else would she have even have dreamt of getting the kitchen door removed about twenty days before the incident! This was the great Kripa of Shri Sai Nath who gave her the thought that there is no need of the kitchen door. The maid got so scared on seeing the scene that she hid in one corner instead of trying to raise an alarm to alert the neighbours. The intruders kept asking for the keys. My mother's gums were bleeding, there was a gash under her lips and though for a minute she felt that she would die, some great 'Shakti' overcame her and she kept fighting with them.

In the meantime the third person had entered the house and was rummaging through the two wooden almirahs in the bedroom, while these two men kept torturing and beating my mother. Then the most unexpected thing happened. Gauri (my three year old niece) came from her pre-nursery school. She normally comes by taxi and usually my sister-in-law picks her up but that day she was not at home and the maid who worked for my mother was supposed to go down to pick her. But since no one went, her taxi driver kept honking at the gate while she climbed the stairs. The door, which had been closed by these intruders just opened as Gauri pushed it and she came in when she suddenly saw these people beating up her grandmother (Dadi Maa). She started to cry loudly. The intruders by then had got a towel to tie up my mother's mouth and put their hand on Gauri's mouth to muffle her cries.

By now my mother was not only exhausted but also overcome with fear for Gauri's safety. She stopped shouting and became semi-conscious. Now see the grace of my Baba. The third man came running to his accomplices suddenly and said ‘Chalo' and in an instant all three men ran out of the house. The maid saw one of them mounting a bicycle and riding away. And in an instant they disappeared.

Later when things were checked to see what was missing from the almirahs, it was found that not a penny had been taken. Every thing was intact. The grace of my Lord had made the men blind or how else would they miss the cash and jewellery in the almirahs. Not only that, they also did not notice my mother wearing jewellery on her person. The most surprising thing ¬that they had left behind the crow bar; which they brought for opening the almirahs or safe at the feet a Sai. They just forgot to carry it back - it remained on the shelf right under the portrait of Shri Sai. Who else can take care of his children in the most miraculous way?

By Dr. Sangeeta Wadhawan


OMSAIRAM!Few weeks back I attended Sai Amrit Vaani at Veena Maa's place.I met a lady who was a dentist.I started to chat with herand asked her why she was there?She told me she was married for last 12 years and had no kids.She was almost in tears.
I told her BABA will surely bless her.Then we came in the same auto.
We had a chat and i told her to read Shri Sai Satcharitra.
She has not been to Shirdi.
last week i got a call from her that she is expecting .She said It all happened because of Veena Maa's Prayers and her attending Sai Amrit Vani.

BABA bless our Veena Maa with lots of blessings.

Then went to my room and searched but I could not find, I prayed to Baba and asked him whether I will be able to find the cover or not. I picked up a chit, Baba said I will find it, I took vow that I will write my experience in Sai Vichaar, again I went to my friend's room and searched for it and found it this time, it was there only where I searched for it previously. I think this is all Sai miracle, thanks Baba for helping me in every small matter, Baba without your guidance and blessing I will not be able to live this life, I also pray to you, to kindly bless all my Sai brothers and sisters.

Jai Sai Raam,

Sometimes I feel that in our daily life we ask so much Help from Baba ji. Whether it is small or big they always listen to all of us only matter is have faith and wait for your turn. I asked one of our Didi here who can talk to Baba ji, that we ask so much help from Baba ji for so many small small things is that good? She replied Sai is our Mom and the kid will always ask his/her mom whether its small or big and its very important to ask it from Sai Ji rather then asking help from someone else in this world. She also said that when we ask for help we say that Sai has Million of hands to give and at the same time we forget that Sai ji having Million of eyes as well to keep any eye on all of us. Means when we do things in life which we shall not still we shall know that Sai is still watching us at each and every moment with his Million of eyes. So do not do anything that may harm someone live happily and let others live happily too.

Thanks
Rakesh

Sai Baba, U know my concern very well. Some years back, I was supposed to get married to Sai Charan, whom I know U only sent to me... Unfortunately, I did not realise that, at that point of time. I have been so ignorant. And I did not reciprocate his love and affection. Now I realise my mistake and yearning to correct it. But I have lost his contact. Please Baba give me chance to set right all the mistakes I made. Now I just cant think of anybody else in my life. Baba I beg your blessing for the reunion and happy life.

Bless me Baba

Baba has done lots of miracle in our life. I would like to share recent miracle of baba. Our 10 months old daughter had high fever and doctor found that she had urine infection. Doctor had given prescription for further test which are really painful for my little one. Her urine was give to the lab for further testing and I prayed to baba and promised if I hear from doctor in 2 days that her report is normal and she does not need any further test then I would share my experience on sai vichar. Baba answered my prayer and everything is fine. Her fever is gone and no further test required. Baba, I thank you very much for being with us all the time.

DEVOTEE'S EXPERIENCE

Baba's Miracles in my Life

How we entered Baba’s kingdom
Baba had entered our household in the year 1982 when I was a child. My brother was around 8 months old and had diarrhea, which was not getting cured despite medication. On the advice of a neighbour, my parents took my brother to Shirdi. And immediately my brother's diarrhea was cured. Thus we were included in Baba's durbar for life.

Nothing much had happened in my life till the year 2000 when I suddenly and occasionally witnessed Baba’s miracles. I started doing Baba’s Parayan and used to chant Vishnu Sahasra Namam daily.

I was having tooth ache, I could see a black decay in my tooth. I wanted to go to a dentist but somehow my visit would get postponed. One night I had a dream that there was a doctor and he was drilling my tooth and giving me treatment. The next morning I woke up and checked my tooth and to my delight my tooth decay had gone. This was a miracle, which I had not asked for but I am sure it is Baba’s miracle to show me I am under his patronage.

In the year 2001, I was working in Mumbai and my fiancé was in Hyderabad. We used to fight frequently even thought we loved each other very much, as there were serious problems between us. One day I broke my engagement with him. This was a very difficult period in my life and I suffered a lot mentally. My fiancé then came to Mumbai to make up with me. But I was unsure and so decided to leave everything to Baba and started parayanam. On the last day of parayanam I suddenly felt that I should marry him. I attribute this decision to BABA.

After my marriage, I came back to Mumbai. My mind was very disturbed as my mother in law was a Christian convert and that had an effect on my husband. That night in the train I saw Baba in my dream, and then I saw Christ, then again Baba and then again Christ. I felt that through this Baba had given me the message that Christ and Baba are not different.

In the year 2002 another miracle happened in the context of my Visa. My application for a study visa had been rejected on two earlier occasions. So when my company applied for a visa on my behalf the consulate did not give it but put it on observation. I thought my visa had been rejected this time also. I kept praying to Baba. One night I dreamt that some sadhu had come to my house and told me “Do not worry , you will get a visa” and disappeared. Then 2-3 days after which I got a call from consulate that I could go and collect my visa.

I was very happy and thankful to Baba. However, while I went to the US, I returned prematurely within 2 months. This left me very disappointed and depressed as I do not understand why Baba did not make me settle there. Now I have so many responsibilities that I cannot go there though I still aspire to go.

I was married in May 2002 but stayed in Mumbai. I could not get a transfer to Hyderabad. In November 2002 I went to Shirdi and prayed for my transfer. I became pregnant in December 2002 and had to take continuous bed rest. Citing this as a strong reason I again applied for a transfer. I was facing difficulties in the process. Then on 7th February 2003 night I had a dream in which I saw a fakir and I felt he was Baba. He asked me for Dakshina, I gave some amount, he asked me for more, which I gave. I felt he was testing me to see if I would give him everything I had. He again asked me for dakshina, and I said I don’t have anything left. He then said: “Do not worry, your transfer will be done”.
On Monday when I contacted my manager, he asked me to leave for Hyderabad. Now this was a miracle because none of my papers had been approved and signed, and were still pending but I was asked to leave. What is a greater miracle then this leela of Sai.

In April 2003 I was in my 5th month of pregnancy. I was working in an office 5 km from my house. I received a relocation letter to another office which was quite far away. I was very tense as I was not keeping good health and the doctor had advised me rest. I was praying to Baba and was sure He would take care of me. I called one of my colleagues who worked in that office earlier. To my surprise and utter cheer she told me that the office just shifted on the previous day to some other place, which was 7 km from my house. I really thanked Baba for caring for me.

My mother in law had converted to Christianity and before I came to her house in Hyderabad she told me that I should not put any photos and I should not light Diya. But does Baba leave his kids? To my utter surprise when I came to Hyderabad my Father in law gave me a calendar with Baba’s photo. I had stuck that calendar on the wall with a gum. One day the calendar fell down, and I did not put it back on the wall. After few days I wanted to do parayanam of Baba. And I could not find the calendar photo. I searched frantically for it and thought that my Mother in law had thrown it away. It was Wednesday and I was wondering whether to buy a new photo of Baba since I wanted to start parayanam the next day.

But can you imagine what had happened? While rearranging the clothes on the shelves my mother in law found that calendar and gave it to me. What a great miracle. Baba had not only come to me in time but also proved that my Mother in law was innocent by giving me calendar through her.

MY EXPERIENCE

After returning from Chatterpur temple on Thursday 1st December 2005 when I went to my pooja room I just felt that Baba was feeling cold. I took out a new shawl from my cupboard and wrapped it around the marble murti in my house. I promised myself that I would go and buy some yarn the next day and make a shawl for Baba.

The next day, my daughter and I went to Lajpat Nagar to buy some yarn. I really liked one pink and silver yarn and thought a shawl in that would look amazing on Him. My daughter kept saying it was too flashy and did not let me buy it. I gave in and bought beautiful baby wool and came back.

On reaching home I went to my mother-in-law thinking she would knit it faster than me. Before I could say anything to her, she started to say: " I had gone to Lajpat Nagar yesterday and thought I would pick up some yarn for your Babaji." She was holding the same pink and silver yarn in her hand that my daughter had not let me buy.

I was speechless and tears rolled down my eyes. Its amazing how he fulfills each and every thought and wish we have.

May we always serve him.

Thanks Baba …

Sreedevi
Dear Sai devotees, first I want to express my humble thanks to Baba, there are no words to express my gratitude to Him. So far He has been taking care of my family, as His own children, the miracles He has shown to us cannot be believed unless you experience yourself. When my in-laws where visiting us in US, my father-in-law had a stroke in the airport itself, he was saved by one of the fellow passengers who did CPR and was rushed to the nearby hospital. During a critical one-month stay in the hospital, doctors were not hopeful of his survival or a recovery, but due to the grace of Baba, he not only recovered but also survived for five years after that. Recently last year my mother-in-law visited us, but a month later, she had cardiac arrest out of blue and was rushed to emergency. Doctors said she is going survive only 30 minutes, my husband and myself were shocked, but we were confident that whatever happening is going to end because Baba is going to take care of her. She stayed at the hospital for over a month and after few weeks of recovery went back to India and visited Shirdi and is doing well. Not only these two incidents there are plenty of others where we are blessed by Baba' grace. Baba is there for everyone; if you totally submit yourself and have Shradha and Saburi you are going to reap great fruits of joy. Thank you Baba for giving me this chance to share my experience with others.

Mudit
This is a magic done by Sai Baba. I was going for an interview on my motorcycle with my wife sitting behind me, suddenly a scooter (two wheeler) coming from the opposite direction lost his control and hit the front wheel of my bike. (There was no divider on road). I lost control and was about to crash on left side of road and I don't know what happened some power a kind of bubble came under my bike and pulled me up from the road and then my bike went a bit straight and then down on right side. Same thing happened again this power (definitely Sai Baba) pulled me again from crashing and we went straight on to the heap of mud. Not even a scratch on our bodies. Definitely Sai Baba came to our rescue and you'll be happy to know that the very next day we were to leave for Shirdi and everything went so well. Sai Baba always comes to the rescue whenever we are in trouble. Jai Sai Ram.


Dinesh
Sai baba has really blessed my life! My wife and I were trying for a child for a long time. Two years ago, I went to Shirdi with my brother and this year, we have a perfect little boy. Baba, we are so grateful to you! On another note, my work has been very stressful this year. The other day, there was a big problem at work, which I did not know how to resolve. I prayed hard to Baba and by the time I got to work, the whole problem had been solved! Baba, thank you so much for all the blessings you have given me.

Ramkumar
I had prayed for the following things to Baba and vowed to post in this newsletter once he fulfills my wishes. (1) To cure the illness of my friend's parents without the necessity of a surgery - Ma Sai had obliged by curing them with just a simple procedure instead of the operation. (2) We were traveling to India and were worried about the terror alerts to flights from India and also the recent liquid article restrictions on board and so prayed to Sai to assure a safe trip - Mai Sai not only took care of it but the most wonderful thing is that He traveled all along with us in the form a picture in that day's news paper article about Sai which a fellow passenger had carried with him. We were totally moved to see His picture first the moment we took our seat inside the flight. Baba, please forgive me for posting it a little late. Wonderful are Your ways! Bless us forever.

DEVOTEE'S EXPERIENCE

Shri Sai Baba of Shirdi, my Lord and Master, my God, my Friend and my Confidante. What can I write about him when I exist because of his Kripa?

The year was 1999 and we had just moved into Delhi. My wife Anu developed a large tumour on her back. We consulted many doctors. The unanimous decision was that an operation was needed and a Biopsy will be required to decide malignancy. Malignant is a malignant word. We got really scared. My wife has been always been scared of the scalpel. She lost her father at the very young age of 11 years and ever since has regarded Shirdi Sai has her father. So she kept putting off the operation on one pretext or the other, saying - Baba will cure me, etc. The growth meanwhile became the size of a fist and was painful to touch.

One day during the Morning Prayer I asked Baba to spare Anu the operation and said that I would donate the money saved by not having to undergo the operation as building material for Baba’s temple in Sadhaura (a small hamlet near Jagadhari) where some construction was required. Doctors had given us an estimate of Rs. 12 to 15 thousand). Why Sadhaura is another story - some other time.

A week passed and then suddenly a doctor friend of mine whom we had been consulting telephoned me that his elder brother - a renowned surgeon from Lucknow was going to be in town to operate upon his sister-in-law and maybe we would like to seek his opinion in the matter. When we reached the hospital on the designated day the surgeon from Lucknow was operating in the O.T. Soon he came out and my friend told him about Anu's problem. The surgeon told Anu to step into the O.T. so that he could examine her. I waited outside and after 20 minutes or so Anu walked out and told me that she had been operated upon - a sample taken for Biopsy and sent to the lab and we were free to go home! Anu was of course in pain and completely bewildered. When I enquired about the charges, I was told there was no charge because friends do not charge each other! We just could not believe it.

In Delhi where a doctor could charge you even if you asked him the directions to his clinic an operation had been performed without charge! This was a gesture unheard of. We were completely dumbstruck by Baba’s Leela. The right way to get rid of the tumour apparently was an operation, whether Anu liked it or not. Keeping Anu’s fears in mind however the operation had been carried out without any fuss, almost as you would pull out a child’s loose tooth by diverting the child’s attention while saying, let me see... let me see…..and then khat ...it comes out. To top it all no charge because the money thus saved would have better use in a temple situated 200 kms away. This was Sai leela and its fantastic execution to the minutest detail. But then these are small things for my Sarkar, $ainath of Shirdi. And this was not the end. There was more to follow!!

I remembered my prayer and my promise and pledged to complete it soonest. In fact I even called up Shri Navneet Sharma the caretaker and Panditji of Baba’s mandir at Sadhaura and promised him that I will be soon organizing some construction material for the temple. Incidentally this is a small temple standing on pillars in the middle of a pond and some of the structures needed reinforcement and hence the need for cement, iron girders etc.

Time passed and I got busy and kept postponing the promised visit to Sadhaura. After about 6 months as good luck would have it my friend Sanjeev Gupta was going to Shirdi and on the spur of the moment he asked me to join him. So without any program or reservation, off I went see my Sarkar. Summons from the Chief, I thought. We reached Shirdi very comfortably and had nice Darshan. Next day Sanjeev told me about a fine temple of Baba near Kopargaon constructed by Shri Chavan Baba who was himself spiritually a very realized person and was known to our Shri Satpathyji. The meeting with Chavan Baba also known as Dhondi Baba was very eventful. Dhondi Baba seemed to know all about us without our even opening our mouths. We were humbled and moved. Dhondi Baba then suddenly looked at me and said “Rajeev Sahib ek aadmi Dilli se aya tha; usney bola tha ki wo cement aur sariya bhejega. Maloom nathi baad mein nahi aaya” (Rajeev Sahib, one fellow from Delhi had promised 'to send cement and iron girders; did not show up after that). I listened to him, made some sympathetic noises; touched his feet took prasad and came back to Shirdi. While attending the shej aarti the same night, suddenly what Dhondi Baba, had said came to my mind “Dilli se ek aadmi aaya tha...” and I realized the importance of that sentence and realized that woh admi mein hi hun. I felt like a worm, but at the same time I also felt elated that Baba had spoken to me and had gently reminded to do as I had promised. It was again a confirmation (if ever needed) of how forgiving and kind my Sadguru is. After the aarti I shared this with Sanjeev Gupta, my friend who was with me. He too was flabbergasted and gave me his quota of gallis.

Duly chastened, I returned to Delhi and the day after made a plan to go to Sadhaura. Sanjeev, wanting to see the culmination of this Sai leela, joined me.

It is a four-hour drive to Sadhaura from Delhi and we reached around 11 am.

Together with Shri Navneet Sharmaji we proceeded to the hardware shop. I had carried with me Rs. 15000/- as per my promise with Baba. We bought bricks, cement, iron girders, and paid for everything - a total of Rs. 14,850!

We decided then to spend time in the mandir while the goods came in. I had paid for the goods and now felt relieved. Of the fifteen thousand, only Rs. 150 was left. I was happy that my estimate had been right and that we had not run short of money. Just then a bullock cart walla, who had brought sand came to us and said that he had not been paid. Sanjeev and I looked at each other and even though we could guess the answer. I asked him “how much?” “Rs. 150, sahib” of course was the answer!! My Sadguru had even done my accounting for me.

Sanjeev and I were stunned. So was Shri Navneetji. There was complete silence accompanied by tears of gratitude.

Slowly we started back for Delhi with our hearts filled in love and gratitude for Baba Sai the Param Sadguru.

Om Sai Ram!!!
Mere BABA mere Sai,
Aapke leela ko koi shabdo mein kaise dhaal sakta hain...mere paas to shabd hain hee nahi jisse ki aapke leela gaun.
Today I was relaxing after a busy first half of the  day. My friend droped in to see me as we had planned and then we went out. By the time we returned, we were quiet tired, but all of a sudden I had a urge to go for a walk down the nearby river. Though my friend was annoyed, I dragged her along. There is a meandering turn along the way which leads to a steep slope which further leads to a bridge.
Just on that turn I saw a little girl squatting down and watching something closely. I noticed it was a baby turtle, whcih had found its way out of the water. The little girl was sorry and at the same time wanted to help the creature to get back to the water, but probably not sure of herself.She saw me and was about to walk off, thinking that the poor turtle could find its way back to the water on its own which was nearly 200 mts away from the bank.

I looked at her and said, go ahead it needs your help. As she was too little to hold the wriggling turtle in her tiny palms, I held it for her and the four of us walked towards the waters. Once near the water, I handed it to her and said ok miss hero, its all yours. She coaxed the turtle to move ahead and it jumped off in to the water and swam away towards life. The smile on the little ones face was priceless...which I would by all means call as one of the wonders by Baba.

Short while ago when I reflected on this incident, I realised Baba did it again. Had Baba not directed me to the river, the turtle would have perhaps died and left the little girl with a broken confidence.

Thank you BABA,
Om Sai Ram!!!
Radha.

i have  witnessed a miracle in my life which i am always ready to share with everyone so that  people can have faith in Sai that  with shraddha and saburi their desires would be fulfilled.  It was about only a year or so of my marriage and i was unable to conceive  and  one day at the gynae's clinic i met a woman who On HER OWN started to speaking to me and asked me DO YOU PRAY TO GOD. then she told me her story that  several doctors had told her that she could not  never become a mother but  she prayed to GOD and later she was blessed with three kids...(now i think was it sai himself who had come to direct me, as there was no other person in the  waiting room except for me and my mother) SO thereafter, i started visiting sai baba's mandir and i was quite upset... and constantly praying to sai to help me....then sudennly someone in the midst of the crowd just extended a hand out and gave me  "sai satcharitra' saying  "it has come from there".... I JUST SAW  A HAND EXTENDING OUT TO ME AND ONLY A GLIMPSE OF THE FACE AND TILL TODAY I DO NOT  KNOW WHETHER IT WAS A MALE OR FEMALE  WHO GAVE ME THAT BOOK... I AM AMAZED THAT EVEN IF SOMEONE GIVES YOU PRASAD THEY STAND IN FRONT OF YOU, HERE I RECIEVED THIS BOOK FROM SOMEONE WHO JUST EXTENDED OUT THE HAND FROM AMIDST THE CROWD AND I DID NOT EVEN SEE THAT PERSON...THEN WHO ELSE WAS IT EXCEPT FOR  DEAR SAI...BUT THEN I WAS ASSURED THAT  MY DESIRES WOULD BE FULFILLED and accordiingly, i conceived  within a few months.... SO  everyone please keep faith and  if you pray to sai he woudl help  you in every manner....

An experience of Baba's grace and guidance

This is mere not an experience for me but it is a miracle Baba made it happen in my life. Whenever I used to read prayers and experiences of other devotees I used to roll on with tears in my eyes how Baba can be everywhere in the world to bring out devotees from their problems and sorrows. I really had some difficult time in my past about my family matters. I used to ask Baba every time why this is happening to me. Why can't I make people happy whom I love most in my life.

My sister whom I love most had a terrible past. To say in brief she had a love marriage and within a few months, she came to know she was cheated. Her husband was very kind in nature but then he was not having proper job. He didn't even finish his schooling and she is post-graduate. Life started to get tough for her. On and above her in-laws side were also were not supportive. I tried my level best to support her in every way.

However, that was not end of her problems, within a year of marriage we got to know that her husband is suffering from a fatal disease. It was a big shock for her and even to me. Her husband said not to disclose this news to his family since already they are not giving any support and if they will come to know about this disease he will die early than what he has destined. He couldn't do any kind of job. And my sister was suffering all that time. There was no income source for her, her husband needed attention all the time. Slowly his health started to get very bad. Being a realist, I asked her to get a divorce but since it was her love marriage, she did not want to leave him alone. The intention was to take divorce but not to leave him alone because he was at his final stage and if he would have passed away she would have remained as his widow, which I didn't want because in future life would have been much difficult for her, at least in Indian society to live behind as a widow of a person who died with disease.

In that process 5 years passed. My sister and I strongly believe in Saibaba. Every time I used to pray for her and asked Baba to give us strength to face difficulties in life. When things went out of hand, we informed her in-laws but then they were not ready to take responsibility of their own son. At that time, my sister started to work but her income was so less hardly she could take care of his and her daily life. In those circumstances, it was very difficult for her to take care of him. That time we came to a decision that at least at his last stage his family should take care of him to which they disagreed. Finally, we filed for divorce. Her in-laws made our life more miserable. Those days were really tough for us. But I know Baba was with us, finally divorce got cleared. After divorce, my sister was always in off mood. Her mental status affected but then that time also we stood in life with help of Baba. Two years passed after divorce, and I was trying to settle her life back but then she was not ready for re-marry. It was very difficult to get a person who can understand the whole situation and accept her without any grievances, which was more difficult.

And then miracle a happened. I come across a person from one of the marriage websites, who settled in UK. Initially I was totally against it since she had a bad past and suffered a lot. I don't want to take another risk by sending her abroad. Also we are from middle class family and we couldn't have able to afford such foreign proposals. But as we always say marriages are fixed in heaven, I explained each and every situation of her past life to him and he agreed to go ahead. It took 4-5 months to get things on proper track. Initially my sister was hesitant to talk to him since she never had any conversation with a person who stays abroad. But as I said it is miracle, that person made her to feel easy in every aspect.

He made her to speak to his family, his mother, sister etc. Gradually my sister started to have proper conversation with them. We started in September 2006 and finally my sister got married in India on 11th February 2007. Things were just not over, when we applied for UK visa her application was rejected by British Embassy on many grounds. We were upset. We were not sure and we had no path to go ahead. But from February 2007 to June 2007 we applied twice for visa and second time she got cleared with it. My sister is now in UK.

In every difficult situation Baba was with us. I know we all have Shraddha on Baba but sometimes we are impatient and we lack in Saburi. But every time I prayed to Him in my difficult days. I asked Him to give me strength to face difficulties in life. I just can't forget what He has done for me. It was sheer miracle in my life that my sister got such a husband who loves her in any circumstances, in spite of knowing her bad past. Today I am much happy to see her settling down in her life.

I am just an ordinary human being, I cannot write much about Baba, but the only thing I can say is, He is the Master for me. He is everything for me. When you totally give yourself to Baba, He takes care of you. So all my friends just have complete faith in Him and you will be free from worries. I know it's difficult to follow in our tough situation but then we need to follow His mantra i.e. "Faith and Patience".

When I Saw Sai...   

He had come into my life through different means, many a times. Then, I was naive and did not know the deeper meaning hidden in them. Today when I look back I understand that all was in divine plan.

It all began years ago, my sister found her strength in Shirdi Sai. She was His ardent devotee and so I was surrounded by His books, stories, et al. Nothing of this however, stirred 'that' chord in me. Then one day He came into my house, when a friend visiting Shirdi gifted me His idol. I placed Him in my prayer room with the other God's idols. Life went on....

During one of my regular TV channel surfings I chanced upon a serial based on the life of Shirdi Sai Baba. I saw it for a few minutes and went back to surfing. After a week, again I came across the same serial, which of course I saw for a few minutes and moved on. This happened for a while and I gradually started watching the serial for longer. Finally there came a day when I became a regular viewer of the serial.

Throughout the time of the serial, I was glued to the TV. I felt as if I was receiving answers to many complex questions of life. Somehow it made perfect sense and sat well on the situations and problems in my life. Was it just a coincidence or was there something more to it? I thought the latter. Days rolled by and one evening when I was watching the serial, I felt that Baba was asking me to visit Shirdi. I ignored the call and continued with my life. Six weeks later when I was watching the serial again, I heard Baba say "I asked you to come to Shirdi and you are ignoring me." It was a wake up call for me and I decided to leave to Shirdi immediately.

I decided to visit the Sai Baba temple in town at the earliest. Couple of days later as I was stepping into the temple, I saw the flower placed on Baba fall on the ground. I thought it was a good omen and I asked Baba to make my trip to Shirdi comfortable. I then remembered what people had said very often, "only if Baba wills, can you step on the soil of Shirdi."

 
 
 As the queue was moving, I was going closer to Baba. I was just near him when all of a sudden, people in front of me made way
 
That evening I informed my parents about my plan to visit Shirdi and they immediately said that they knew a person who could be of help in Shirdi.

Finally I was on my way to Shirdi not knowing what to expect. I was not sure why Baba had repeatedly asked me to come to Shirdi. The bus journey of over 21 hours was comfortable and I reached Shirdi.

The man known to my parents had taken care of everything, including my stay, food and VIP darshan. This I took as a welcome sign from Him, for without His will no one could step on the soil of Shirdi.

On a bright very hot day, I stepped on the soil of Shirdi and that moment will remain etched in my memory forever. Everything taken care, I went into the temple for the darshan. For those who don't know, thousands of devotees throng the temple and for a darshan you would have to wait in queue for long hours. I however had a VIP pass and so went in easily. Sai in all his splendour had adorned his throne in the temple. It is an overwhelming experience which cannot be expressed in words.

Since there is a huge crowd of devotees, you get less than two seconds to see Him from close. As the queue was moving, I was going closer to Baba. I was just near him when all of a sudden, people in front of me made way and I stood there close to Baba uninterrupted, for long. This was an unusually long period than what one usually gets. Thrilled I was that I had finally made it. With joy in my heart I left the temple premises.

When I Saw Sai...   contd..........

i wanted to then visit Dwarakamai, the place where Sai lived. When I reached there, seeing the long queue I decided to first visit the Chavadi *(Baba used to sleep here every alternate day). After the Chavadi darshan I came to Dwarakamai and looked around in awe, for this was where Sai, walked, Sai talked, Sai healed and Sai lived. The fire he lit then, is still kept burning. It is from here that one gets the Sai prasad of 'Udhi' (miraculous ash). I sat in the centre of Dwarakamai, with eyes closed. I began reveling in his presence.

Not satisfied, I wanted more.... I wanted to see Him, I wanted to know why he had called me to Shirdi, I wanted to know that he was there for me, to protect me, to take me on a Spiritual journey. I prayed. I prayed asking Him to bless me with his presence, to appear before me just as He is, in a way that I could recognize him. My heart cried in pain for the desire to see Him and be assured that He was with me guiding me through.

After some time in meditation I left Dwarakamai. Next morning too I got a VIP pass for the morning aarti and went in to see Him. It was followed by a visit to the Chavadi and Dwarakamai many times during the day. Meditating here was a truly enriching experience. With the shlokas and the mantras in the background and the devotees singing along, it was as if I had found the missing link in my life.

Happy that my trip to Shirdi was fruitful, I went to bed that night. When I woke up the next morning, it dawned on me that my visit was not fruitful after all. I had two darshans in the VIP slot and felt what was the point in visiting Shirdi, if I could not stand in the normal queue like most others, chant the Sai nama and then get his darshan? So, I decided to stand in the queue, knowing fully well that the queue would take atleast 3 hours to clear and that I had to take the bus at 12 noon the same day. After about 3 hours I finally got the darshan and the feeling cannot be described. As I was nearing the pedestal where He sat with all glory, I saw devotees asking the priests for flowers.

 
 
 I then saw a Fakir just ahead of me standing with his bag (jholi) outstretched for offerings.
 
The flowers and garlands blessed by Sai, where being put into a corner by the priests for the devotees to collect. Determined to get my share, I moved on to collect a garland. As I bent down, to take the garland, I noticed that there was just one garland left in the basket. I happily grabbed the garland and suddenly from nowhere an old lady bent and frail (I had not seen her in queue) reached out for the same. Seeing her reach out to the same garland I handed over the garland to her. Just as I placed the garland in her hand, a big, nice and fresh garland came flying and fell on my shoulders. I felt His power and grace that very minute. My heart was filled with the assurance that He was with me.

Contented and filled with Sai's grace, I went to visit the Chavadi and Dwarakamai. There was a huge crowd but that did not deter me. As the crowd moved on I looked around savouring the walls, which Sai would have touched.

I then saw a Fakir just ahead of me standing with his bag (jholi) outstretched for offerings. I took out my offering and gave it in his hand. He signaled to drop it into his bag. As I dropped the offering into his bag and looked at him, his aged body began shaking deliriously. He lifted his hand and blessed me exactly the same way that I had seen Baba bless people. Just then, like a flash of lightening I realized that in the last two days , I had not seen any fakir inside Dwarakamai. Only then did I remember my cries to Him and my request to see him in a form that I could recognize. That instant I turned back to look and lo behold, He was not there. I knew it was Him. I had seen Him, I had seen Baba!

The Miracle of Sai Baba's Udi
By:- Mahesh Chandra Srivastava
Inscrutable are the ways of Providence To get the blessings of choicest
Heaven is the rare bliss.
Since October, 1973, I have the privilege of enjoying Baba's blessings in
various ways and find Him guiding my darkened path, everyday, specially when
I am in difficulty. Whenever my thoughts go to Him, irrespective of where I
am, I find His Photograph, before me, conveying His blessings.

A day earlier, than the fall of KOJAGIRI POORNIMA, It was Wednesday and I
was bound for Shirdi the very night. At 10 .30 A. M, a thought came to my
mind that while at Shirdi, I should buy a silver ring with 'Baba's Emblem'
over it. At about 1.30 PM, the same day, I called on a friend of mine, who
deals in Diamonds, with a mind to have lunch with him and also to inform him
of my intending visit to Shirdi, since I would not be able to see him for a
couple of days. After finishing the lunch, he got up and at his own accord,
came out with an offer of a Platinum ring with 'Baba's Emblem' over it. The
ring could be classed as one of the rarest mould of its kind. Even after
spending a fortune, I could not have made this precious ring. It has got a
beautiful emblem of Baba in 'Gold' on it, and is made of platinum, silver
and a couple of other hardening metals. The ring consists of five elements
which is supposed to be 'THE MOST SACRED'. Since Baba never wanted me to
wear a silver ring, that is why, He arranged, its presentation to fulfil my
thoughts.

My friend was just an instrument in its presentation, since this ring came
to him from someone Though this friend of mine used to meet me everyday
for the past one month or so, still the thought of presenting this sacred
ring came to his mind only that day, when Baba wanted my desire to be
cherished. My friend made this offer of his own accord. With the ring on my
finger, Baba brought me to His Lotus feet on 'KOJAGIRI POORNIMA' day which
luckily was Thursday, at His shrine at Shirdi.
But the miracle that I am going to narrate to my brother devotees, has its
own significance and characteristic meaning. It has brought a great change
in my life and has left a rich imprint on my mind, which no word can
express. lam overwhelmed with His benign blessings which He has been
gracious enough to shower upon this humble self.

On the morning of 23rd February, 1974, I reached the holy place, named
Shirdi with my few friends, all intending to stay together. Somehow, on
reaching Shirdi, I decided to stay separately, and I did. After finishing
the morning rituals, I went to my friend's place with a mind to go with them
to 'Maha Samadhi Mandir' for ABHISHEK. Since they were not ready, I told
them to meet me at Samadhi Mandir, where I would be awaiting them.
While buying garlands for Baba, a vibration came to my mind as if Baba was
instructing me in person, saying "Go to Dwarka Mai first, then to Chaudi and
then to Samadhi Mandir. I am still alive.

(to be contd....)

I was just an ordinary person visiting temples whenever i felt like- but recently my life changed. I respect all faiths no questions asked.

recently in dec 2006. i had a problem in my foot when a glasspierced. I took doctors advise and left Toronto for a vacation in India9Madras)

Later my foot got swollen and had terrible pain and was unable to walk with slippers or shoes on. Anyway, I went to Shirdi temple on Jan 5th 2007 as I had pre planned my vacation. I was limping when I entered the main hall but when in front of Babaji's Idol I put my foot down automatically while praying and was too surprised since there was no pain and I had to leave the hall in 5 minutes as other devotees come in and what a miracle! I walked normally without any pain and my foot is completely cured- no swelling no pain- Thanks to BABA. Then I began to have faith in baba because of my personal experience and started going to sai temple every thursday in Toronto..

Another major incident that happened recently when I returned back to Toronto.
A Srilankan man's wife had a hole in her heart and her operation was fixed on a monday. That previous Friday he happened to pass Sridi sai temple in Markham area in Toronto. He got down and went in and prayed. The next day Shirdi Sai appeared in his dream and said not to do the operation. He thought that probably it was his thinking since he had been to the temple previous day so did not take it seriously. Again the next day Sia appeared and told that his wife will be alright so not to go ahead with the operation. Now he took it seriously and the couple cancelled the opeartion on Monday. The Canadian doctor could not believe this- he said that she needs the operation or she will die but still the couple cancelled it and went home. After 10 days the doctor called the man and enquired about his wife health and asked him to bring his wife for a check up. After chekup they found no hole in her heart!A miracle!
It's unbelievable but true!
Now I am too much in awe of Shirdi Sai and my faith in HIM cannot be shaken!

Harita
Baba koti koti pranamalu. We thank you and we are ever indebted to You.
Believe in Him and He is going to help you in your efforts. We were trying
to get pregnant since two years and we had been unsuccessful. I started
doing Satcharita parayana last Thursday and today this Thursday I got a
positive home pregnancy test. I really am so grateful to Him that I cannot
express. Miracles do happen if you believe in Him. As per my vow I am
posting my experience in Sai Vichaar Baba. Please bless us ever kindly and
help us through this pregnancy.

In the year 2004, one fine Friday I started reading Sai Satcharita and was
waiting at the bus stand. One gentleman came and asked me what are you
reading. I told him I am reading Sai Satcharita. Then he asked me since how
long you know that old person. I got shocked and asked him once again which
old person. He said your Saibaba. I told yes I know about Baba. He asked me
have you ever been to Shirdi. I told him no I have not gone. That person
told me it is not easy to get his darshan it is like getting into the bus or
train to get a seat. I was just listening. Suddenly the bus came and he gave
me vibuthi (udi) from his pocket. I told him thank you very much. That
person told me, say thanks to Sai baba. That is all, I was so happy to hear
that. So after that issue I was waiting for an opportunity to visit Shirdi.
I got that opportunity and visited Shirdi. I had good darshan and was in
tears and did not ask Saibaba what I wanted to ask as I was in tears as I
got His darshan.

Baba Fulfills Devotee's Desire
Sri Sainath Maharaj provided an opportunity to me to visit Bhuvaneswar in
February. Sri D. V. L. Narayana Murthy and Maj. E. B. Patro, also a Sai
devotee, joined us in Bhuvaneswar. After visiting Puri, Jagannath and
Konark, we went to Dhenkenal - where a beautiful Baba Temple has come up in
a spacious eight-acre area near Kapilas, about 12 kilo meters from the town.

After participating in the Muhurath of Baba's installation on Thursday
(21SI) in the morning, we wanted to visit the nearby Kapilas shrine on the
hills near the Baba's temple. All the three of us were waiting for the bus.
No bus came for almost one hour. When a bus came and stopped after one hour,
we tried to get into it. But there was no space, not even to keep one leg.
So we came back. I said that if Baba wills, he will take us there." Just as
we entering the main gate, a Baba devotee, Sri Chopra was taking some
Pundits to Kapilas. He offered to take us along with them to the Kapilas
Hills by car. We were surprised at this offer, as it was not even five
minutes since I said 'If Baba wills he would take us there.”

At the Hills, there is a beautiful temple and a Shiva Linga. There along
with the Pundits, we also performed Abhisheka chanting Rudra, Chamaka, Sri
Suktha, Purusha Suktha, Durga Suktha, etc. This was a bonus granted to us by
Sai Mother. We were immensely pleased with Baba's concern and compassion to
his children.

Baba showed His kindness once again. We were returning to Bangalore the same
evening. We went to Cuttack by bus, waiting there at the Railway Waiting
Hall. As there was about half an hour for arrival of the East Coast Express,
our friend, Maj. Patro, went to have his bath. Meanwhile, the train arrived
before the scheduled time. So were informed the same to Maj. Patro. He told
us to proceed and he would join us. We kept his wrist watch, spectacles
which he had handed over to us to look after near his luggage, and we went
to into the bogies. Maj. Patro also joined us after some time with his
luggage. But he forgot to take his spectacles, without which he was
helpless. While the train was about to start, a gentleman who was sitting in
the retiring room noticing the spectacles came and handed over the same to
him. It is a miracle of miracles how he came to know the bogie number and
remembering the person handed over his spectacles. Baba has no limits for
His love and concern for his dear children.

His Mysterious Ways
By R. Subbulakshmi
In December 1984, I had a problem in my uterus and underwent a major surgery
in abdomen in January 1985. After the operation, I grew weak as I am past
fifty. I needed help for everything, even to turn over or sit up in bed. It
was very discouraging. One day feeling utterly helpless. I complained to my
Sai-half, Sri R. Radhakrishnan: "Why do I keep on living? What good am I? I
am just a nuisance. I can't do anything for anyone".

He was preparing himself to go to Shirdi for participating in the Sai Leela
meet scheduled for 27th and 28th Jan, 1985. He answered with a smile: "Oh" I
don't know about it. I think there is something you can do. You can pray to
Lord Sainath for the sake of others". What a good medicine that was. There,
flat on my back, I began to pray for my fellow-patients, for the doctors and
nurses, for Sai-bandhus, for any one who came to mind. And as I did, I found
I was moping less, and focusing more on the world outside. Without knowing
it, I was getting out of myself, out into the world -if only in spirit. And
eventually I was there physically too.

In fact, my health improved, so much, so that a year later, I could
accompany my husband to Shirdi in February 1986 for the annual Gathering of
Sai Leela Contributors and later and to Vijayawada to participate in the
Akhanda Sai-Nama Saptaham. Today I am living at home, and I am able to take
care of myself, but I am still following that excellent prescription for
feeling useful.

Om sai ram,

I started believing in baba since 1995. Since then I have experienced so
many miracles of his big & small.That to write all of them is not possible
in one email. But I would like to share one which taught me that Baba is
always around his children & when we need him the most & call him he does
come.

This happened in 2003 my husband & I were living in an apartment in Chicago
downtown with our 1 1/2 yr old son Parth.It was around 2.00pm I was cleaning
my bathroom & parth kept coming in & kept touching all the cleaning stuff.
he was quite irritated that day as he had high fever. I took him out &
closed the bathroom door thinking that I would be done in the next 4-5 min.

After I was done I tried to open the door but it would not open. I soon
realized that I WAS STUCK IN THE BATHROOM.I kept pushing & pulling & tried
all sorts of things but the door would not open .I tried to hit the door
with my shoulder (the way they show in the movies)But that too was a waste
of effort.I got on top of the pot & kept shouting in the vent HELP! HELP but
no one would listen as it was 2 in the afternoon

Can you image my plight , Parth my son was crying out side I could hear the
phone bell also ring but he was too small to get the phone or answer it. He
just kept banging on the door I was in tears I was extremely paranoid. My
husband Dharam use to come at 8.30 /9.00 from work.

To top it all I was cooking too & the food was on the stove. Almost 10 or
12 min must have passed.All of a sudden I started shouting Baba !Baba! help
. I was crying screaming & shouting BaBa Help! Baba help!

The min I called for baba I banged on the door The door opened ,as if some
one had opened it from out side.

I cannot explain to you how I felt.I rushed out side hugged my son & saw
that there was so much smoke in the house as the food had burnt. It is all
because of Baba's timely help Me & my son are safe .

Even today when I remember this or tell any one about this I have tears in
my eyes .& of course I always carry my phone with me to the bathroom or any
other room I go.



Om sai ram.

DEVOTEE'S EXPERIENCE
The following experience has been narrated by Shri Dajisaheb Awasthi of Pune
which was published by SABARI ASHRAM of Jhalod, Gujarat in their publication
"SHRI SAI BABA of Shirdi" in Gujarati. The undermentioned extract has been
translated in English and is best described in Shri Awasthi's own words as
under :-
"I was an advocate at Pune. When I was 28 in 1897, I was introduced to a
saint of a very high spiritual order. The saint emphasised the existence of
God and validated the mantras being chanted for various Divinities of
GODHEAD. To me, the saint said, "Chant "Om Namo Shivaya". He also predicted
that the chanting of this mantra of LORD SHIVA would have its remarkable
effects after 16 years.I commenced chanting this mantra. I visited
Pandharpur in 1910 where another saint whom I met advised me to go to Shirdi
and take SHRI SAI's darshan and said that PANDHARINATH LORD VITHOBA is there
in the form of SHRI SAI. But, as fate would have it, I was unable to visit
Shirdi for three years.

In 1913,I finally made it to Shirdi and the moment I climbed up the steps of
the Dwarkamayi, I beheld the form of LORD SHIVA in place of SAI BABA.
Overcome with emotion, I immediately prostrated at HIS feet when seconds
later as I looked up once again I saw SHRI SAI as usual, BABA blessed me and
said, "Allah Malik Hai" and told me to stay at Radhakrishna Ayi's house.
Radhakrishna Ayi's devotion to the LORD was so deep and sincere that I
revered her and treated her as my divine Mother and she reciprocated by her
motherly care and affection towards me.
After staying a few days, I left Shirdi for Pune but could not forget BABA
and Ayi. For four years thereafter, I regularly worshipped them in my house.
One day as I completed my puja, the room was suddenly filled with a
wonderful rose fragrance for at least an hour after which it subsided.
Unable to solve the mystery about this strange phenomenon, I made enquiries
around my house but in vain. Three or four days after this incident, I
received a letter from Abdul Bhai and Wamanrao Patel (Swami SAI SHARANANAND)
from Shirdi that Ayi had passed away, the date and time of which perfectly
coincided with the rose fragrance that filled my room.

A few months after this episode, I visited Shirdi again on Akshay Tritiya
1918 accompanied by my wife. After taking BABA's darshan, I put up at Ayi's
house on BABA's instruction. My wife began to make preparations for BABA's
Naivedya but try as she would, she could not light the charcoal stove.
Wondering what to do, she was astonished to see Radhakrishna Ayi descend
down the stairs from the attic and helped her in lighting the stove and also
in assisting her for preparing naivedya . That done, Ayi climbed back to the
attic. At noon, when my wife waited for Ayi to come down and join us for
meals, she did not and thinking that she may be engaged in some work, my
wife personally went up to call her but found the attic locked. Rather
puzzled, she hurried down and made inquiries with two or three neighbours
from whom she learnt that Ayi had attained samadhi a few months ago. She was
shocked with disbelief.

The veil of Maya was so strong that my wife failed to recollect that Ayi was
no more and that a letter in this regard had also been received by us from
Shirdi.

If devotees of Baba like Ayi who were blessed by HIM could be so powerful as
to appear even after shedding their mortal coil and render timely assistance
to HIS devotees, what to talk of SHRI SAMARTH SAINATH who was Parabrahma
Incarnate. Can anyone fathom HIS powers and leelas?

UNIQUE COINCIDENCE OR A STRANGE MIRACLE
Chakor Ajgaonkar
A strange and curious experience was undergone by me on 12 March 1993 at
1445 hours when a time-bomb exploded at Nariman point. Was it a miracle or a
coincidence?
I am writing a series captioned Tales From Baba's Life' was writing the
story of Nana Chandorkar's daughter's plight at Jamner and Baba's transfer
of Grace and Udi to Nana through Bapugir. I wrote the story between 2-15
p.m. and 2-45 p.m. under the caption "A Comrade at the Nick of Testing
Hour", Nana Chandorkar was at Jamner in 1904, working as Mamlatdar. His
daughter Mainatai, who had come for her delivery was undergoing deathlike
pangs of labour for a number of days in spite of efforts of midwives and
other religious remedies like Nava chandi Havana etc. Baba's grace was being
begged by Nana by incessant prayers. Baba was at Shirdi. He heard the call
of Nana. Shri Ramgirbuva Gosavi (Bapugir) was leaving Shirdi by this time to
reach his home village. Baba gave him Adkar's Aarti and Udi and asked him to
stay at Nana's house for a couple of days before proceeding to his home
village. Bapugir had only two rupees with him which were hardly sufficient
to purchase a railway ticket up to Jalgaon. He did not know how to reach
Jamner. Baba assured him of Allah's help. When Bapugir got down at Jalgaon,
a tanga driver came seeking him. He carried him to Jamner and disappeared.
This was Baba's leela. Bapugir gave Udi to Mainatai. Nana sung the Aarti
before Baba's shrine and prayed. Miraculously Mainatai was saved. She
delivered a male child and was hale and hearty. I completed this story upto
this leela of saving Nana's daughter, when the telephone began ringing. My
daughter works in Bank of India at Nariman Point. She informed over the
phone that she was saved from a bomb explosion opposite her bank. There was
a powerful bomb-blast (under Air India Building) between Oman Bank and Bank
of India. The Oman Bank was totally destroyed, whereas the Bank of India was
partly affected. My daughter told me that she came out safely with minor
injury. It was a strange coincidence that my tale from Baba's life
synchronised with my daughter's story,

Dipika ji,
You are truly blessed and thank you so much for sharing your experiences.
I posted first time, almost a month back , the day when I was diagnosed with deadly disease.
I remembered one of my friend telling me about praying Sai Baba.
To be honest, a became baba's devotee just about a month back when there was no hope left other than almighty GOD.
I started doing Sai Vrat, 40-days sugar candy & reading sat satcharitra.
5 days back, I got my blood test again and this time everything was normal.
For us, it is a miracle. I don't care what doctors say - some error in first test or whatever. Truly Sai baba /GOD saved/cured.
I'm so overwhelmed and happy to be back in online Sai mandir. By Sai nath's grace, I'll probably be coming to this mandir all my life.
Jai Sai Ram
Sri Sai Ram

Jayashree
At the outset, my sincere apologies to Shri Sainath for the delay in posting my experience in this divine site. I like to share a few of my experience I had experienced with all the Sai devotees. My husband and I are residing in the Middle East. Right from the time we came we were facing many problems. My first employment in the Middle East was not good, both job and salary wise. I visited Shirdi during May 2006 and prayed to Baba to help find a good job with decent salary within three months. Exactly on the last day of the third month by Baba's grace, I attended an interview and got the offer in a better company. Same way we had problem of getting a good house. The grace of Baba solved even this and now we have a good house with good sharing people. I sincerely pray to Baba he helps us to continue to stay in the house without any further problems. I also sincerely pray that my husband's hard work yields good result. I fully leave to discretion of Baba, as He knows what is best for us whether he continues with the current business or gets a good job. Whatever he should be able to get good monthly remuneration. Baba please bless us and always guide us and all the Sai devotees in the right path and help my daughter to complete her CA and degree successfully. Also please help us to have undivided faith in You with a calm and composed mind.

Sasi
I have one kid who is 20 months old and I am pregnant now. During the scan of my second baby, the technician was not able to see the vessels going out of the baby's heart and the doctor said it is mainly due to the bad positioning of the baby. I did not care much and doctor referred to a scan the second time during next visit, which is after one month. It did not help. The doctor advised me to wait for another scan one month later then she could send me to a specialist for detailed scan. This is when my husband and I started to get really worried of what is happening to my baby? Is she alright? Looking at various articles and information on the internet it made me to worry more rather than relief. This one month we have spent the days worrying about what is going to happen. I have spent most of the time praying Saibaba at home, at work and this when I saw or came through Sai Vichar and read some of these articles. I gave up rice until my delivery and prayed Lord Saibaba to shower His blessings on us and will write in Sai Vichar about this matter if everything goes well. I am so glad and happy that in my next scan, everything looked perfectly all right and the baby is moving fine. Next experience was when my older son who is 20 months old started crying suddenly in the middle of night for one hour and as soon as I put vibudhi on his forehead and stomach he stopped crying and went back to sleep as if Saibaba had laid His hand on my son. I am very thankful to Lord Saibaba for what He has done to me and pray for His blessings in the future and to look after us and my family through out my life.

How Shirdi Saibaba Helped in the Smooth Passing Over of My Dear Son

The hit and run accident and on the spot passing over of my 18 year old son on this years’ Valentine day at a Flyover in Delhi left me in a state of shock. In fact, when I was rushing to the hospital after hearing about accident of my son I was sure nothing would have happened to him. But I was totally in for a shock when I found his body in the mortuary at AIIMS. First words that came out of my sobbing husband were ‘Woh chala gaya. Tere SaiBaba jhoote nikle’.

I could not believe how could Baba do this to me as I was always so devoted to Baba not only during crisis but even during happy times. I always chatted with him as if I were talking to a friend. I was always thankful and grateful to him and always felt that I must have done something very nice in my previous birth to deserve this kind of happiness. After looking at the lifeless body of my dear son, I hated Baba. What was the use of so much of devotion, belief and faith in Baba when he could not save my son’s life. Maybe I was worshipping the wrong God. I was content with whatever I had, I did not crave for more but still Baba gave me this pain, which was so unbearable. Was there any Baba at all or not? If I have to suffer for consequences of my karma, in any case, what was the use of praying to Baba? He could not save my son’s life. May be ‘meri bhakti mein shakti nahin’. I don’t know what type of devotion do you want, I asked Baba. If you do not like my way of devotion then I will not worship Baba or anybody, I resolved in my mind and was also vocal about it to other Baba devotees.

Everyone coming to us for condolences was also wondering how could somebody who was religious, worshipped and had so much faith in Baba suffer like this. I also asked Baba how he was feeling - ‘tumhari badnami ho rahi hai’. In fact, I had sent a letter to Baba on the day of this accident itself through my friend (incidentally called Shama and a true Sai Baba devotee) who was going to Shirdi with a request to call my husband, our two sons and me to Shirdi. But my son passed over even before the letter reached Shirdi. My friend got my SMS when she reached Shirdi. She informed that this was the first time she forgot to take sweets for Baba with her from Delhi as was her normal practice. So she went to Samadhi mandir without sweets and she said Baba was looking sad that day. I knew I was crying and so was Baba.

Later on, when I was little more composed and I reflected on the events that had happened a few months before my son’s physical departure on 14th Feb, 07, I could sense all the things Baba had been doing for me. In my grief I was just not able to understand. I was wailing all the time as to why Baba did not save him. My son could have been hurt badly but he need not have left us forever like this. How will I worship Baba after this? But something in me was telling me that even Baba was shedding tears with me. But still my faith was shaking. Shradha and Saburi were just looking meaningless to me and I did not want to believe in any God for it seemed useless to me now.

When I joined my duties in office, I took out my diary where I write down some important events of my life. The last note I had written was on 18th Aug, 06 which caught my eye instantly. As per my note, on the previous day i.e, 17th Aug, 06, a fibre murti of sitting posture of Saibaba (one of the two murtis I have) which I had been worshipping for a long time was accidentally hit by a ball by my younger son and it fell. Even though it was made of an unbreakable material, it broke. Baba's head was severed from rest of the body and I was shocked. I had recorded this in my diary note and written ‘what problem of mine have you taken on yourself Baba’. Incidentally, my elder son (who is no more now) went with us to the bank of the Yamuna to drown the murti properly, while all the time I was feeling so sorry at what had happened and kept asking for forgiveness. As time passed, the memory of this mishap faded.

I was reminded of this mishap only after my son departed from this earth in Feb, 07. It struck me that Baba had perhaps given extension of life to my son by giving his head but still I was not so sure about it. But it did make sense somehow because my son had also succumbed to his head injuries. For the six months after breaking of ‘murti’ both my husband and I were spending a lot of time with our elder son without realizing that he was to pass over soon while Baba knew this all and the following records how he did this:

• My husband holds a senior post in a central PSU. During Aug, 06 end, he had some altercation with the top most level following which he was suddenly transferred, posted and relieved immediately to join at a remote area in central India which was not even a family station. He left and joined there but after few days he fell sick suddenly. He said he never ever felt sick like this before.

• My elder son went all alone (on his first trip) by a late night train to give support to his sick father. One week later, both of them returned to Delhi and my son told me not to send his papa back to that remote station as there was no work at all for him there and also that if he goes there he will fall sick. So in 25 years of his service, my husband was on leave for four months and stayed at home with his late son day and night. To give moral support to my husband I also took leave in between and stayed at home. All along my late son gave us moral support. He would encourage his father to quit his government job and join some MNC instead. Do not be scared of anyone Papa, he said.

• All efforts to reverse these transfer orders, either politically or even administratively, were failing and we were wondering why this simple problem was not getting resolved. I used to pray to Baba to do whatever was good for us and also to make us strong enough to withstand this professional crisis. Those days my prayers to Baba had increased manifold. All the time I was doing ‘naam jaap’. I could not sleep properly, so at night also, I would keep looking at Baba’s picture in my bedroom and ask him why this was happening. My intensity had increased so much that I could now compose and even sing Baba’s bhajans with zeal all the time, sure that something would work out and my husband would ultimately join his duties. All we needed was to have Shraddha and Saburi. Baba knows what is good for us and why He is doing this, for He only knows the whole plan of our life while we only see our life in bits and pieces. Our life had come to a standstill.

• Both my husband and I were on leave, so we would go to various malls etc and every time we would end up purchasing things for my elder son only. His clothes, his shoes, his belt, his gloves etc. At home I would end up cooking his favourite food etc. Obviously, Baba had given us time to spend with our son. My son who did not believe in God earlier began going to Gurudwaras with full devotion on every Sunday. He even changed password of his computer to ‘saibaba’. He visited Saibaba temple also with us on the New Year. He said, he did that to make me happy. He became so attached to me in last few months that he began discussing everything under the sun with me, his smoking, his girlfriend and his after college activities. I was so happy at this special bond that we established with each other during his last few months. And to think today that Baba was behind all this.

My son became so religious, calm, mature, helpful, compassionate and understanding in his last months. Baba was doing all this and internally changing all of us. He was keeping us together during the extension of life that he gave to our son. With Baba’s blessings, my son had developed so much of wisdom that he knew how, when and where he would pass over. Of course, we came to know these details only after he crossed over to the spiritual world leaving us in tears. His favorite rock band is named ‘Nirvana’. I have placed his small picture in the lap of Baba’s ‘murti’ in my home because I know he is in Baba’s light now. And how do I know this. Three things happened in the space of one month each.

1. During the mourning period of 12 days, I was so upset that I would tell everyone that my praying to God did not help in saving my son’s life so I have stopped believing in God. One unknown lady came to meet me especially in those days and told me that though she did not know me she wanted to meet me and tell my that my son was in a very happy and blissful state and that I should not mourn his passing over as he had been called to God’s home for his further higher spiritual education. She referred to Yogananada’s Geeta and some of its extracts that she had brought with her. I felt a bit comfortable and when she left I saw a SaiBaba sticker on the rear glass of her car and I thought how kind of Baba to have sent her to comfort me.

2. One month after this, when I was alone, I wept bitterly in front of Baba’s murti and prayed from the depth of my heart. I asked Baba, ‘why did you not save my son Baba? He could have been hurt but need not have gone. Where were you? Unless you give me a reply to this question yourself I will not believe anyone. I compared myself to His devotee ‘ the doubting Hari Kanoba’ mentioned in Satcharita. Half an hour later, my husband came and suggested that we see the SaiBaba serial on Star plus. I said that the serial must be over and I don’t want to see it anyway. But he insisted that we see the last scene at least. So the TV was switched on. The scene was where Bhagat Mahalsapati is forced by Baba to go home and when he reaches there reluctantly, his sons dies in his arms singing Baba’s aarti. Everybody around is surprised as to why Baba could not save his favourite devotee's son’s life. SaiBaba tells Mahalasapati that even Krishna, God himself, could not save Pandavas sons. Your son was meant to be with you for this much time only. This all ‘lena dena’ is due to our ‘rinanubandh’. Therefore, one should not grieve. If Baba had not sent him home he would not have been able to meet his son at the end. Similarly, Baba had arranged circumstances in such a way that my husband spent his leave with his son during his last six months. Not to mention that my husband was lucky he kept away from that controversial posting because later on various enquiries were ordered and my husband was saved as he was on leave. Thanks to Baba.

I had a dream around one week before my dear son passed away. In my dream, I saw pictures of mostly all the Gods – Shiva, Krishna, Rama, Bhagawati etc – but SaiBaba’s sitting posture statute was lying on the floor with a white cloth all over it. Only the forehead was partially visible so that I could recognize it was SaiBaba. I could not understand this dream and I asked my dear friend Shama why I could see faces of other Gods while Baba’s face was covered with white cloth. What did this mean? Even she could not figure out but felt that it meant that I had blessings of Baba and that Baba is with me. However, one week later when we went to the mortuary to identify my son’s body, I saw a similar white cloth on his body. Only his forehead was partially visible and as he had long gold tinted hair, I could identify my son immediately. It looked similar to the way I saw Baba's statute covered with white cloth in my dream. Was Baba trying to tell me that there was no difference between Him and my son. In fact, I started looking up to Baba as my loving son there after. I feel that dream was Baba’s message to me about my destiny.

3. One month after this, while meditating in the garden, I had a beautiful vision. I was meditating in my living room at home. Suddenly, my late son walked in wearing a red Nike T-shirt and asked me ‘why are you sleeping Maa’. I replied that if I opened my eyes, he would go away. He said that he will not go away and that I should get up. As I opened my eyes I saw him standing there and he pointed towards, Sai Baba who was standing next to him. I was totally choked and cried, ‘you have brought SaiBaba for me’. Then I fell down at Baba’s feet and thanked him so much. I could distinctly feel Baba’s off-white thick clothes. Baba said ‘Now you can see that your son is with me. You were unnecessarily crying’. I thanked Baba and requested him to give my son what he wanted. Baba asked ‘What’. I said ‘Give him Nirvana’. Suddenly Baba produced a flame shaped bright light. My son walked into it and spread his arms in happiness once he was inside it and said ‘Thankyou Maa’. The vision was over. I realized I was in garden still meditating.

Today, my husband also believes that SaiBaba had actually given my son an extension of life for a few months. What was predestined had to happen and it happened ultimately. But by this vision, Baba showed me that my son was with Him. Of course, being a mother, I feel the pain of losing my teenage son but I am thankful to SaiBaba for taking him in his light. I am sure that my son has ultimately got his Sadgati, thanks to Baba. I feel blessed.

My son, you are indeed very very lucky. Maa loves you forever.

Jai Sai Ram,

"I SHALL DRAW OUT MY DEVOTEES FROM JAWS OF DEATH"
How true are these words of Baba, which one can find in CHAPTER III
of Sai Satcharithra by Hemapant!
I can narrate a miracle happened in my life, happened some 10 or 15
years back which is still afresh in my mind. My father suffered a
massive heart attack and admitted into the Intensive care unit of a
Private Hospital at Mylapore, Chennai. The monitor attached to him
was erratic, showing signs of immediate collapse. Doctor who
attended him in the morning, asked me not to go anywhere and remain
there as his end may come at any time. I thought of going to Baba's
temple and praying to Him rather than remaining in that place as my
presence may not be going to make any change in his condition. I
physically ran to Baba's Temple at Mylapore (All India Sai Samaj)
crying and narrated my father's condition to Sri.Kesavaraoji, who
was the President of All India Sai Samaj at that time. When he was
telling me that Baba will always take care of His Devotees'
problems, an ardent devotee of Saibaba came there right from Shirdy
with all his baggages. He told Mr. Kesavraoji that he had come there
to meet him and also to have darshan of Baba before going to his
house at Madipakkam, some 15 KMs from there. By saying this, he gave
an Udi packet, which was brought from Shirdy, to him.
Sri.Kesavraoji immediately gave the Udi packet to me and said that
it was only meant for my father and asked me to apply the same on
his forehead. I again ran back to the Hospital and with the help of
the ward doctor present there, applied the same on his forehead.
From that moment onwards the monitor was showing signs of
improvement and in the night, when the Doctor checked again, could
not believe that he was near normal, that too in a short span of
time. Next day, he was shifted to the General ward and after five
or six days he was discharged. Though my father expired recently, he
never had heart problem till his last day. Please read the first
line. How true it is!
Jai Sairam,
Ananthsairam.

This is an experience of Haresh who was admitted to ICU at One of the hospitals in Ahemdabad. His Dengue fever was not diagnosed at earlier stage and his platelet count had almost fallen to Zero ( it should be 2.5 lakh). One of his relatives who is my colleague, told me about this at around 2pm. I asked him to make a promise to me that if the patient is fine again he will take him to Shirdi and to Pray to Sai baba for his well being. I also prayed to BABA for the patient(at that time i did not even know the name of the patient). By BABA's grace his platelet count started rising by night(10pm). Haresh's relatives had almost lost hope but now he is healthy again and was discharged within a week from the hospital. Such is the miracle of Sai who keeps His devotee's words.

This is an account of a recent experience that is very similar to the stories documented in the Sai Satcharitra, and shows us how Baba even after his MahaSamadhi allows us to experience the same leelas today just as if we too were in Shirdi during the earlier days.
 
Just a couple of weeks ago I decided to read the Sai Satcharitra and complete it withing a one week timeframe from Thursday to Thursday. Though I do this atleast once a year, and sometimes more, this year I specially requested Baba to bless me so that I have complete concentration and peace of mind during my reading, and to help me understand his leelas with the deeper meaning within. As always, I thoroughly enjoyed the reading throughout the week and thanked Baba.
 
On the final thursday of my reading, I remembered an instance from several months ago where during my morning prayers I requested Baba to come home during the day and bless me. That evening a gentleman rang the bell outside my aparment and mentioned that he was in need of some money and would be obliged if I could spare some. I was too occupied in a discussion with one of my family memebers, and politely refused the man who then went away.
 
Upon remembering this incident during my final day of the reading, I realized that it was me who invited Baba to come home, and then when he came in the form of this genetleman I let him leave without offering any money or food. I apologised to Baba in my mind, and requested him to pardon me for this mistake. I also requested Baba to bless my 7 day reading and give me a chance to serve him again for my earlier mistake.
 
During  my entire daily routine that day, I was alert and hoping to identify how Baba would appear to me. The entire day was over, and it was time to retire, when I was told to urgently purchase some household requirements from a nearby 24hr supermarket. At almost 11.50pm, just 10 mins before the day ended, I parked my car at the supermarket. The very moment, a man walked upto me and told me that he was in need of money and would be obliged if I could spare some. I was delighted at seeing him, and felt that Baba had finally blessed me again with his presence in the very same way, and also given me a chance to undo my mistake. I immediately went inside the supermarket and purchased a meal for the person, which I offered to him along with some money. He thanked me an left, and in my mind I was the one thanking him and my Lord Shri Sai Baba for his blessing.

 
Sai Baba is the most merciful, and ever forgiving to devotees who wholeheartedly call upon him.

Now, I'm not really one of those highly brilliant students as such, but neither am I bad in my studies. I usually manage to get results within the average to above average range.
 
As a part of my postgraduate degree, financial management is one of the required subjects, and my most dreaded one. I have always had difficulty in studying finance, and usually get very anxious when I have to appear for exams related to finance.
 
This term I have taken financial management as one of my subjects. Even previously, when I have studied finance, it has always been my weakest subject resulting in the lowest average scores.
 
During a recent examination, I was feeling extremely anxious and unprepared. I had attempted my level best to study hard, but was still not mentally convinced at my efforts. Before the exam begain, I closed my eyes, and requested Baba to bless me so I do well. There were several questions in the exam which I was not sure of. Before attempting every question, I remembered Sai.
 
At the end of the exam, I was sure that I would pass, but also sure that with the numerous number of guesses I made, I would score something close to the 'just passing' mark or lower average.
 
When the results came, I was shocked to know that I was among one of the two students who scored the highest marks in the entire batch of postgraduate financial managment students this term. The first thing I thought in my mind was to thank Sai, and how he helped me with his blessings.
 
His blessings not only helped me do well, but also helped me gain confidence in my weakest area to work harder and do better and leave expectation of the outcome at Baba's feet.
 
Though the experience I have noted may seem rather unimportant to most people, I feel that this is a lesson that applies to everyone in every situation in life, not just education. Whenever you do something, ask Baba to bless you, have faith in him, and be true to yourself in what you do.

Why fear when I am here
Shirdi Sai Baba is a mystery. His birth, to whom he was born, who nurtured him, his travels before coming to Shirdi and his scholarly interpretation of Hindu and Muslim philosophy, baffled the most eminent scholars who visited him. His miracles that cured any kind of suffering, are as valid today as in the past and through them he created millions of devotees. When Sai Baba came to Shirdi it was a village. Today Shirdi has luxury hotels, motels and, is full of activity. <o:p></o:p>
A friend of mine is a fighter pilot with numerous battle honours. His one and only weakness was addiction to smoking, and however hard he tried he was unable to give up this habit. He prayed to Shirdi Sai Baba very sincerely, as only a miracle from Sai, would give him the will power to leave smoking forever. One day, while on a flying mission, he thought he saw, a figure like Sai blessing him that his wish to leave smoking was granted. Shortly after this experience he landed. As per usual practice his wife was waiting with a packet of cigarettes, for she knew he enjoyed his cigarettes as much as he enjoyed the flights. But on that day, he took the packet and threw it away. His wife was thrilled, and from then on, he never touched cigarettes. He kept this vision as a secret, till I met him post school, after three decades of his joining the air force. I had known him as a chain smoker and so took a special brand of cigarettes for him. He flatly refused to light the cigarette. I was amazed at his will power in giving up this addiction. Like him, I too had tried various ways of giving up my addiction, but failed miserably even under threat of breathlessness. I asked him how he had accomplished this, thinking that if he could do it I would follow the same mantra to give up this deadly addiction. He smiled and said that if I could become a devotee of Sai Baba, pray religiously, put complete faith in Baba granting my wish, then, may be, He would bless me in my dreams and help me never to touch cigarettes. <o:p></o:p>
My fervent wish is that Sai will grant me the ability to stop smoking, to save my breath, to witness auspicious events. Let not cigarettes take away my breath. I do not want to take birth again just because I wanted one more puff of a cigarette that was denied. Ramana Maharishi compared tobacco to poison, for the poison will kill body, mind and soul. A great English author seeing a young man smoking remarked, I am happy that you have a useful occupation in smoking. If one devotes one hundred percent of one’s mind to Sai, everyday, at specified allotted time, then Sai will occupy the mind and release one from the tobacco; and mind and heart will no longer be slaves to this breath killing habit.

His Mysterious Ways
By R. Subbulakshmi
In December 1984, I had a problem in my uterus and underwent a major surgery
in abdomen in January 1985. After the operation, I grew weak as I am past
fifty. I needed help for everything, even to turn over or sit up in bed. It
was very discouraging. One day feeling utterly helpless. I complained to my
Sai-half, Sri R. Radhakrishnan: "Why do I keep on living? What good am I? I
am just a nuisance. I can't do anything for anyone".

He was preparing himself to go to Shirdi for participating in the Sai Leela
meet scheduled for 27th and 28th Jan, 1985. He answered with a smile: "Oh" I
don't know about it. I think there is something you can do. You can pray to
Lord Sainath for the sake of others". What a good medicine that was. There,
flat on my back, I began to pray for my fellow-patients, for the doctors and
nurses, for Sai-bandhus, for any one who came to mind. And as I did, I found
I was moping less, and focusing more on the world outside. Without knowing
it, I was getting out of myself, out into the world -if only in spirit. And
eventually I was there physically too.

In fact, my health improved, so much, so that a year later, I could
accompany my husband to Shirdi in February 1986 for the annual Gathering of
Sai Leela Contributors and later and to Vijayawada to participate in the
Akhanda Sai-Nama Saptaham. Today I am living at home, and I am able to take
care of myself, but I am still following that excellent prescription for
feeling useful.

Since I was about 5 years old, I had terrible migraines and whenever I used to travel for about 5 mins I got headache and used to vomit all the time. Had this problem at least 3 days a week. ...When I was 12 years old I had to change my school, which was (by Sai's grace) near Saibaba temple. So everyday morning I used to go to temple with my friends and especially on Thursday for arthi. My family never knew much about baba. But I don't know why that same year during my vacation all my family members planned to go to Bombay and Shirdi by car from Hyderabad. I didn't want to go because I had terrible headaches and travel sickness but by Baba's grace I agreed to go with them. And all the way through my trip, I never got headache even for a sec and I didn't get any vomit feeling at all. It is about one whole day journey by car but I never felt headache through the whole trip. I was definitely blessed by baba...And from that day until today, I never got frequent headaches. I never lost faith in baba.....I love you baba....I was also a very bad student. But after visiting Shirdi and by Baba's grace, wonder of wonders I studied very hard?passed all my classes?and also stood 1st in my university in engineering and then finished my MS in US without any difficulty and married to wonderful husband. Whatever I got in life was not easy but I always trusted baba and worked hard. I am here because of you baba and I am still here to pray to you. Thanks baba for taking care of your kids. Please be always with us.

Sai Descends to help Devotee in Distress

By Puttanna

 

Sri Sai is ever watchful. He is always with those, who constantly repeat Sai... Sai.... Sai. Not only that, He helps them. He nourishes their devotion. He takes care of their worldly needs. He becomes one with them.

 

Poor Swarna for she lost her husband at the age of 21 or so. Her only daughter, Champa, was three years then. Through somebody's help, she got employed in the Khadi Gramodyoga Bhavan and started living independently with none to help her.

 

It was somewhere in the beginning of 1996, she started coming to Sri Saipadananda Satsanga to participate in Sai Satcharitha Parayana on every Thursday morning. When she was introduced to the Satsanga, her daughter, Champa, was already 20, studying in college. Swarna's worry then was how to find a suitable boy and to conduct the marriage without anybody's help and money. She said Sri Sai was her only refuge and she was sure that parayana of Sri Sai Satcharitha would fulfill her desires. She also said she was not poor as Sai is her father. She was so strong in her faith in Baba.

 

After 2 or 3 months, she stopped coming. I wanted to know what the problem was. When some devotee took me to her small house, I was very much pained and moved to see her lying in bed due to severe pain in the back bone, which had made her unable to sit or walk. Sand bags had been tied to her legs by the Doctor. During this difficult time, some of our Satsang members were inspired to help her by Baba's Grace. After two months treatment she recovered and was able to attend the office too. She started again to come to Satsanga for reading Sai Satcharitha.

 

Baba is always aware of the needs of His devotees. It so happened that she was invited to attend a relative's marriage where she went with her daughter. When she was witnessing the marriage, an elderly couple came to her to enquire whether she would offer her daughter to their son who was working in ISRO. Swarna never expected such a surprising situation. She believed that Sri Sai only had directed the elderly couple to approach her. Then and there the boy and the girl saw each other and consented to the marriage. When Swarna explained about her health and financial conditions, the boy's father only said "Don't worry. Everything will be all right by God's Grace."

 

Now, Swarna had no money and she has to conduct the marriage. The boy's father also fixed up the marriage hall and told Swarna to take care of the expenditure with regard to food only on the marriage day. But Swarna's problem was how to raise money.

 

Lo! Baba's unseen hand worked. At that time her brothers at her native place decided to dispose of their father's house. Through this deal, Baba helped her to get a fairly good amount as her share, just enough to meet the marriage expenses.

 

Thus, Champa was married on 6.12.1996. Sri Sai will never let down those who surrender and take total refuge in Him and Him alone.

Bow to Sri Sai - Peace be to All.

OM SAI SRI SAI JAYA JAYA SAI

Om Sai Ram: In my recent visit to Sai temple. I had an unique learning experience. When I entered the temple I just happened to see a Sai Devotee praying profusely with both his hands spread in front of Sai Ram as if seeking alms. I was touched with that devotion and instantly prayed "please grant whatever this person is asking for". Then I placed a rose flower in his feet which the temple caretaker placed on the head of Lord. In few seconds the flower fell down and this man who was praying ran and happily picked it up and kept it in his pocket as though his wish was already granted. Even I felt very happy for this stranger. The temple caretaker then gave me a mango fruit. I came home and relished the same with my little son. One thing which I learnt from Sai that day was that when we pray for others we get an inner peace which is invaluable and immeasurable. Om Sai Ram..Keep praying for all...Known as well as unknown.

I work in a company. My boss went on leave so I was supposed to handle his office and also money matters. At that time I lent some $ 2950 to a colleague for official use. I wrote his name on a chit and put it in the moneybox. When my boss came back he asked me about the chit, but the person I gave the money to said he doesn't remember about the same. I didn't have any other proof. I prayed to Saibaba and asked him to help me and that he knows I haven't taken the money. After two months the colleague got extra $2950 from his accounts and agreed that it must be the money I lent him. Thank you Saibaba for helping me. Please bless my family and me and always guide us in every step in life.

Sri Saibaba and Fasting

Sri Saibaba has given us the middle path to follow on the path of emancipation. He did not advocate the over indulgence either in the senses or in asceticism.
Let us see what Sri Saibaba had said about fasting on Thursdays or any other holy days. M.W. Pradhan, a devotee of Sri Saibaba had organized the birthday party of his son in Shama's house at Shirdi and invited all devotees of Sri Saibaba to lunch. That day happened to be a Thursday. Bala Bhate apologized to Pradhan that he was unable to eat on that day as he had a wow to fast on Thursdays and went to the Masjid. As

Baba saw Bhate he asked, "Have you gone to Pradhan's party and had your food?"
Bhate: "Baba, today is a Thursday".
Baba: "So what?"
Bhate: "I do not eat on Thursdays. It is my wow".
Baba: "To please whom have you made this wow"?
Bhate: "I have made this wow in your name for your grace".
Baba: "I am telling you this myself. Leave off this fasting and go have your food with Pradhan".

From the above it is clear that Baba did not agree to do fasting to please him on Thursdays. Now, let us see what Sri Saibaba said about fasting on holy days such as Ekadasi, Maha Sivaratri and such days.

Tatya Kote Patil was one of the closest and most intimate devotees of Sri Saibaba. He had the great good fortune of sleeping along with Baba in the Masjid for fourteen years. Those who had seen the love and intimacy between Baba and Tatya Kote Patil felt that Baba loved Tatya more than his life even. Tatya in his reminiscences says thus, "I used to fast regularly on Ekadasi, Maha Sivaratri and other such holy days. Baba's opinion was that fasting had no usefulness in either the mundane worldly life or the spiritual life. I would try my best to fast on these holy days but Baba would some how or the other break my fast and made me eat something. On one Sivaratri I said, 'Baba, please let me fast at least on this day. Please don't make me eat anything.' Baba said, "Eat man, eat, what Sivaratri are you talking about?" Dada Kelkar who by standing by also told me to do as Baba says and not to disobey him. I did not raise any further objection to Baba and have never fasted on any day since then."

Achuttan
My younger sister's marraige proposals were not materializing, I was working in private company at Calcutta. When I was worried so much, my colleague (we call her Mami) asked, why you are gloomy now-a-days. I told her the story. She advised me to visit Shirdi Sai Temple at Calcutta for 7 Thursdays and pray well, then wait. I visited the temple every Thursday. Believe it or not, the proposal that was not materialized about 4 months back came again for consideration. Now she is married with the same person and having two children staying at Abu Dhabi, UAE. Her husband is working as Regional Finance Manager of a private company. This kindness of Baba, how can I forget Him.

Pradip
Last Feburuary, I was in Shirdi. Before going to Shirdi , I did sankalpa that I will sing all aratis during our one week stay in Shirdi. I also made the commitment I will dedicate one arati a day to the people who have serious financial and social problems. I with my family reached Shirdi, Wednesday night. I forgot my sankalpa of one arati a day to the weaker people. As Thursday was Baba's day, selfishness overruled my sankalpa. I was in line for Kakad arati on Thursday. Baba did not give me a better place to sit and I was almost in the last line of the Samadi Mandir hall. I did not enjoy arati singing from the distance whereby I cannot see Baba. The average crowd in Shirdi was 20,000 to 30'000. I went to my lodge. Thursday night, Baba made me remember my Sankalpa that I must sing at least one arati a day to the weaker people with serious financial and social problems. I made up my mind to sing and dedicate Madyana arati to the weaker people as per my sankalpa from Friday onwards. I was in line for Kakad arati on Friday, the crowd was not less than 20,000. To my great surprise, I got the seat in the first line of sitting line at the center. I sang Kakad arati with great enjoyment having full view of Baba. I got second line of sitiing line at the center in Madyana arati. For the coming six days of stay in all the aratis, I got either first, second or third line of siting line of the center by Baba's grace. I really enjoyed arati singing because I had full view of Baba from these centrally located seats. I do all the arati in Marathi script in my house since seven years. We have now started dedicating Madhyana and Shej arati in our house in Kathmandu to the weaker people as per the spiritual guidance given by Baba in Shirdi.

This happened on 9th September 2007. My mother-in-law traveled from Bangalore to Chennai in Lalbagh express. Before boarding the train, she was having her purse with some cash and train ticket. After boarding the train and settled down, the Ticket master came asked for her ticket. She searched and found that the purse is missing. She gave my residence phone number to TTE. He called my residence. My wife picked up the call. As soon as I reached home, she told me the incident. I prayed whole-heartedly to Sai Baba that You alone could help my mother-in-law for a safe and hassle free journey. I attended the noon aarthi in Sai Baba temple and prayed there. She reached Chennai in the afternoon and called us. She told that the TTE after realizing what had happened did not ask for the ticket. Further, after reaching Chennai central station he came to the platform and ensured that nothing should happen to my mother-in-law. He kept a vigil if the ticket checker asks for the ticket. My father-in-law went to the station to pick her up. He sensed the happenings and got a platform ticket and both walked out of the station. Until the time they were inside the station, TTE made sure that nobody questioned her. Soon after hearing this incident, it flashed my mind where Sai Baba himself drove a tonga to a devotee, which I read in Satcharitra. Bow to Sri Sai, Peace be to all.

Baba’s protection: Right from pregnancy thru safe delivery and more…..

“If you spread your palms with devotion before Me, I am immediately with you, day and night. Though I am here bodily, still I know what you do; beyond seven seas. Go wherever you will, over the wide world. I am with you. My abode is in your heart and I am within you. Always worship Me, who is seated in your heart, as well as, in the hearts all beings. Blessed and fortunate, indeed, is he who knows Me thus.”

-Satcharitra chapter 15. Baba imparted beautiful and important lesson to Mr. Cholkar in chapter 15.

I bow to Shri Sainath and pray for his blessings to share this leela.

It was August, 2001. My wife conceived and was due for her first check-up after 8 weeks. We went to the clinic as scheduled and scanning was done. The Technician broke the news that he couldn’t find the embryo in his scan and neither the heart beat. We were shocked and earth under my feet started shaking and the room seemed to be revolving (as shown in the movies) and I kind of collapsed onto a nearby chair/table. After couple of minutes I recovered and asked the technician “Is there any possibility or hope?” As I was present in the scanning room during the scanning, I saw the multiple efforts made by the technician to find the embryo before breaking the news to us. He felt the situation was hopeless. Later, a nurse tried to comfort us. I asked the same question again and again: “Is there any chance?” She told us that there was no chance and told my wife that in the next few days she would have an abortion and gave her empty (small) cups to retain some of it for further test/research. I asked her again “Is there any hope?” She replied, you can always have “hope” but again said that abortion can be any time in next couple of days and told us to retain some of it. I asked her what if abortion does not happen in next one week? She said come back to us for more tests, but stressed again that abortion will happen in two or three days.

We returned home, were very saddened and kept on praying to Baba. The father of a friend (who is also my neighbour) aged 68/70 years and a very devout person, (who also did la ot of research on Ramayan, Mahabharata) was in town. And upon learning about our test results, he gave us a slokam from Mahabaratha – which was sung by Draupadi during the Vastra-apaharana episode, begging Krishna to rush to her rescue. We received the “slokam” as Baba’s prasadam and prayed to Baba and SaiKrishna. I stood in front of Sai Baba (who is my Krishna) and chanted the slokam. Baba’s namam audio cassette was played from morning 6 am to 10 pm continuously everyday and night. Days passed but the abortion did not occur. The good sign was my wife continued the pregnancy symptoms. These gave us hope, and went on praying day and night to Baba, literally day and night. My home was like Baba’s temple and Baba’s songs were played all the time for next seven days.

After one week, we went to the clinic for re-tests. This time during the scanning, we heard the baby’s heart beat loud and clear. Our joy knew no bounds. The technician was shocked. It took a few minutes for him to apologize to us. He said he had never seen this kind of incident in his life. After the examination the nurse came running to us and apologized and hugged my wife. She was very happy to know the news, but at the same time she was very apologetic. It seemed she was very worried that we may file a case or sue her. She hugged my wife five times during the check-up and walked us to the exit doors when we were leaving. She said in her 15-20 years of service, she never had seen this kind of incident. We knew in our hearts that this was Baba’s Miracle. Nothing is impossible in Baba’s giving and protection. As we read in Satcharitra, Baba said many times “My Mission is to give Blessings”.

Months passed and we were praying sincerely with joy filled hearts, and remembering Baba’s miracle every day for those nine months. None of our parents or in-laws could come to help us with the delivery. My wife’s first delivery was a C-section back in India. She was worried that if this too was going to be a c-section it would be tough for us to take care the baby if she had to take bed-rest due to the surgery. At the same time she was also worried about going through the intense pains of a normal delivery. As we all know, nothing is in our hands. All we can do is pray to Baba and leave everything to him. Baba’s songs/namam were played every day and night at home for all those nine months. We felt our home was a Sai Mandir for those nine months, as Sai music played all the time, day and night.

Nine months passed, on delivery day early morning at 3 am, Padmaja was getting delivery pains. We went to the hospital to check-in. Surprisingly, after being admitted, the time-gap between the strokes went from 5 minutes to 10 minutes and also her body status was not meeting the requirements for admission. So we were told to go back, and the nurse’s attitude was not at all friendly. We were really depressed with her attitude, and were sent back home. The distance from our home to hospital was a 30 minute drive. But see Baba’s miracle. After we reached home, she got back the delivery-pains. But we hesitated to go to the hospital as we were concerned that she may be sent back again. We were continuously in touch with doctor over phone (being Sunday), and at 11am or so the time-gap between pains went down to 3mins/2mins from 5mins. Finally, we started for the hospital at 4:30 pm. Padmaja had to control herself a lot in the car. She was having heavy pains but she was scared that I may not be able to drive properly if I heard her screaming. We prayed to Baba on the way that she should be admitted. As soon as we reached the hospital, a nurse saw her as she was walking to the reception and rushed her straight to the delivery room without any formal admission formalities and tests. The nurse checked her in the delivery room and told us it’s 9.5 cm open. Doctor was paged, and in next 30 minutes Padmaja delivered the baby while listening to the audio of Baba’s Namam. See Baba’s miracle here. If my wife had admitted to the hospital in morning, she would never have been able to bear the pains. Baba knows what’s best. He kept her at home, and at home we didn’t know the progress, so even though she had severe pains at home, she bore them thinking this is just the beginning. Baba gave her the strength to go through the pains. Baba redirected her attention from delivery-tension to admission-tension. Even if one observes the timing, we went to the hospital right at the nick of the time and not an hour early, not an hour later. We reached the hospital at 5:30 pm and were ready for the delivery and were sent straight into the delivery room. Later I came to know that while we were driving to the hospital, our Baba (in the form of the Doctor) called the hospital to be ready to receive us. So when we reached the hospital, they had the patient’s records and doctor’s details ready. Baba made sure that it was a safe and natural delivery.

On the 3rd day of the delivery we were discharged. At the time of discharging us, the visiting Doctor checked the baby and said everything was fine and we could leave. Fortunately, by Baba’s grace my son urinated while the tests were being done and there was a need to change his clothes. While the nurse was changing Sai’s (my son) clothes, Doctor observed some thing different in his skin and ordered them to do the tests for Jaundice and told us take the child for a check-up the following day. We were discharged.

Next day, we took him to the clinic and learnt that the Jaundice test results were 20 (or more). We rushed to the Children’s hospital for emergency as per the advice, and admitted the baby for the treatment. It was 4th day of delivery and we are back to stay at the hospital. The mother had to feed the baby every 30 minutes, as that would help the child get rid of Jaundice. It was very hectic for the two of us, and we were in panic. By midnight the tests showed that the Jaundice had gone down by one point or two. This was a very good sign as the trend was expected to continue. We stayed in the hospital for two nights and then went back home, with equipment (brief-case and blanket) for further treatment at home. The nurse came home every day for a couple of days to check on progress. And with Baba’s grace Sai recovered soon. It was Baba’s grace that my son urinated in the main hospital, which caused doctor to check on Jaundice other-wise we would found out about it at a very late stage, as we did not have much experience of jaundice etc. It would be very tough find out about the disease as we live in an apartment where you don’t have much light, and there were no older persons at home to check on such things. Baba helped us to get through our troubles and protected us at every stage.

Baba! Oh our dear lord! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Whenever I see my son, I remember it’s Baba’s blessings.

Bow to Sri Sai, Peace be to all.

Two years back, when I went to Shirdi, I did not know about aarthis and I did not see any aarthis. This August, I went to Shirdi with my mom and dad. I had the wish of seeing all Baba's aarthis. As I wished, I saw Shej(night), Kakad(morning) and Madhyana(noon) aarthis without any problem. For Dhoop(evening) aarthi, we went early at 4:15 pm. So we decided to sit for Mugha (Face) darshan and thought we will sit there till the evening aarthi is over. The view was so good that we could see Baba completely. At 6:00 pm, security guards came and asked us to move out of the hall which we didn't know that they will do. My mom and I felt very bad thinking that we couldn't see aarthi though we came soon. But we started to go and stand in the line again. Exactly with 10 people before us, the gate was closed. So we thought that we could get only this much and we sat there watching the aarthi on Television. Just after two minutes the aarthi was started, they opened the gate and let us into the main hall. I and my mom got a place where we could see Baba nicely. Of all the aarthis, we got a very nice view in the evening aarthi only. Singing the aarthi in the middle of so many people was really a wonderful experience and we are thankful to Baba for giving us the opportunity to see all the four aarthis. During one of the aarthis, I wanted to keep my and my sister's horoscope at Baba's feet and I thought of doing it before Baba, displayed on TV. But I was not able to reach the TV as it was too high for my height. But suddenly there was a devotee who was very tall. He took the horoscopes from my hand and kept in Baba's feet and we felt really happy for that. Baba, thanks for the trip and we are eagerly waiting for the next trip. Only You know when that will happen. More than me, my mom wants to come and see You every year. Please grant her that wish and always bless my mom, dad, sister and everyone in this world.

Baba thanks for giving me another life. I had been suffering from kidney failure since 2000. After going through all the treatments over the seven years there was one point, where I had given up hope of living. One day I was reading Sai Satcharita and suddenly a thought came. I prayed to Baba to relieve me from this misery. One day I had a call from the hospital calling me for check up and there was a possibility of kidney transplant. After checkup, I was told that the transplant would go ahead. I had the transplant and I was heavily sedated. Two days later, I was woken up to say that the donated kidney was not functioning. I might have to go back to operating theatre to remove the donated kidney. This was a big shock. I suddenly closed my eyes and prayed to Baba. I was unconscious for some time. There was a miracle, the next day in the morning the consultant came back and woke me. I have good news, a miracle has happened, suddenly the kidney has started functioning, we don't know the reason for the normal functioning. I smiled and prayed to Baba for the miracle. It has been a big relief on me and my family. I once again pray to bestow Your krupa on my family.

I started believing in Saibaba very recently. You can say from end of August '07. I just read some forums in a website, where they had suggested to many people to read Sai SatCharithram. I purchased that book on August 29th and started to read it from August 30th, which was a thursday. And next day luckily I could plan for a trip to shirdi with my parents. I was reading sai charitam all through the way. I am currently going through lots of problems. I had literally lost interest to live. But after going to shirdi I felt very much at peace and started thinking whatever it is Baba will take care and He is there to lead me safely.

You will not believe I could make 3 trips to Shirdi from August 31st. Every 2nd week I am going to shirdi. Everytime I go I feel his presence. I am hoping that I will get what I desire by Sai's grace. Also have made up by mind that if it doesnt happen then that is what sai wants.

"Believe in Sai. Surrender your life to him. He will take care of everything" is the mantra I keep saying.

From the time I starting believing him, I have experienced small small happenings which I feel happened because of Baba's grace. Will post each experience in different posts.

I came across this site also by luck. I am very touched by many posts in the site. Reading all the posts increases faith in Baba.

May baba bless everyone with his blessings.

As promised in my previous post, I am writing a few incidents which happened because of Baba's grace.

All the 3 recent trips which I made to shirdi in the last 1 1/2 months were quite unplanned. It was as if Baba planned the trips. The second trip, I thought of leaving on saturday night from bombay with my mom. But on saturday morning, something told me to leave in the afternoon itself. So we changed our plans and caught a bus around 2. When I booked my tickets, they told me that we can reach shirdi by 7-8 PM. So I started dreaming about seeing the shej arathi. But it was already 8:15 When we reached Nashik. I was very upset and started chanting sairam and thought that if baba wants me to see him tonight, he will make it happen. We reached shirdi around 9:45 PM. We got down in front of the temple. I told my mom to run inside so that atleast she can see the arathi. I had a bag with me which I didnt know where to keep. I went to the security place where they keep the mobile and asked them where to keep the bag. They said they only keep small items and such a big bag cannot be kept there and I have to keep it in the cloak room. There was so much of crowd. I knew I wont be able to see the arathi as it was already late if I go to the cloak room. I was literally in tears. I wanted to see the arathi. and the security told me, aapko arathi nahi milega! I was very upset, and literally begged them to keep the bag and they kept on refusing. But suddenly by baba's grace they said aap idhar hi bag rakho aur bhago karke. I started running from there to the temple. Was very excited. And there was no queue. I could directly run to the samadhi hall and the arathi had just started. I could see the shej arathi by standing in the hall from a corner. I was crying silenty as I could see him. This is nothing but baba's grace.                     ---------CONT

---Continuation from previous post.

Would like mention about my 3rd trip. We as usual decided on an unplanned trip to Ashtavinayak and shirdi. On a sunday around 10 am, this thought crossed our mind and we left by 1 pm by baba's grace. Before leaving, I took baba's permission and asked him to be with us for the whole trip. We went to Pali, Mahad, Theur (3 ganpathi temples) by then it was already 10 PM.

I told the driver to go to pune city so that we can look for accomodations but the driver took a different route. He asked some people nearby and they said we will get accomodations in saswad and it is on the way to moregaon (another ganpathi temple), so the driver decided to take that route. We dont know marati and we are in maharashtra only for the past 3 yrs so we had to listen to the driver. We kept going and we saw that there was no good hotel and the roads were literally deserted on the way. I was very upset as I had my old parents and younger sister with me. I am the person who takes care of them. They are totally dependent on me. I was worried as to how my parents are going to manage if we dont find any accomodation. But I trusted baba, I kept chanting sairam and left everything to Sai We reached saswad around 11:30 PM and we were very upset as we found out that saswad is also just a village. The driver took us to the first lodge. Seeing the condition of the lodge, I decided to stay in the car itself. As no decent family can stay in that. The next lodge also was the same but by then our driver was tired and he said that he cant go on but we need to stay in the second lodge(there were men who were very drunk in both the places, So I was even more scared). I thought maybe baba wants this only and was about to pay the money but somethign held me back. By then my mom came inside and saw the surroundings and said we will better stay in the car itself. So we came out, one guy from the lodge said that there is a new lodge nearby and asked us to check that place. I forced my driver to take us there, even when he wasnt interested. When we reached the new lodge, to our surprise, that place was surprisingly clean and the room was very spacious. It was heaven compared to the other places. To get such a place in a village was really by baba's grace otherwise we would have had to stay in the car only. I still feel baba made that guy tell us about this place. normally they dont disclose about other places as they will lose business. Because the first lodge guy told me that other than the 2 lodges there are no lodges nearby. But baba showed us the way.

Next day we went to shirdi and stayed there. It was a memorable trip. As there was no queue, so in 5 minutes, we could get to baba's samadhi. And we could stand there for as long as we want, I could touch baba's samadhi for the first time. I was in tears when I saw baba's murthi. I was praying earnestly for something to baba (I know asking for our desires to be fulfilled is wrong, but who else can I ask other than baba?) I was touching baba's samadhi and was praying and was in tears. When I opened my eyes, the pujari gave me some flowers which were near baba's feet. I was moved as I felt baba is saying not to worry that everything will be alright and he is there to take care of me. Anyways I can only ask baba, He will decide what and when to give me.

After that we stood in the queue for the shej arathi, and I could get a place just next to the murthi during the arathi. I was so happy. No words to express. We came out after that and went to gurusthan. We were just standing there, and looking at the neem tree. One old man who was dressed like a saint came there. He was collecting neem leaves. I was standing nearby, After collecting 4-5 leaves, he gave it my hands and walked off. I felt as if baba has blessed me once more through him. As I felt it was baba only who came there.

I do feel dejected with all the problems around, I keep thinking of Sai and bear everything. Sometimes I feel very lost. I just keep praying that I should never lose faith in Sai and I should chant his name till I die.

I am going to narrate my sister’s experience. My sister Mrs Revathy Sekhar’s gave birth to a daughter on 25.01.2000.My sister is a devote of Baba and her faith towards the almighty is immense. As a result of her faith in Baba she named her daughter Sai Nirmala.

Sai Nirmala was about 5 months old when she developed a throat pain. Her child specialist examined her and said she is suffering from a throat infection which is a small white coloured lump. He advised her some medicines and asked us to come back after a week for check up. The medicines were followed as per the prescription and the child was again taken to the doctor for examining the throat.

Something, which shocked the entire family was the medicines, couldn’t cure the infection and it was as it is. Doctor advised us to take the child to an ENT specialist. The entire family was tensed and could not understand as what has to be done. Immediately after reaching home my sister prayed to baba for few minutes and then taking a pinch of Baba Udi -which is kept in a cantainer near Baba photo at her place – mixed it in a glass of milk and fed the child. She told everyone that she is having faith in Baba and Baba will surely cure her child. She refused to take the child for further check up.

After a week Sai Nirmala was again taken to the same child specialist for vaccination. After vaccination my sister requested the doctor to examine Sai Nirmala’s throat. Doctor after examining the same said there is no sign of infection in the throat. Doctor was surprised to know that the child’s throat got cured without even going to a ENT specialist as per his advice.

My sisters faith did not go in vain. She always says Baba is the greatest "hakkim"(doctor). Now Sai Nirmala is 6 years old and till date whenever she has any problem Baba is always there to take care.

Sai Ram.

Parvathi Raman



om sai ram.

Dear all,

 I have been patiently waiting to post my experience for a while now. Our dear Baba entered my life recently when my mind was restless and countless difficulties surrounded me. Once in my meditation, I was chanting Babaji Babaji (another guru and asking for help), suddenly my thoughts went to our dear father Shridi Sai. I felt as if Shridi Sai was responding to me, I was confused as really I was not thinking about him but another guru. I thought since they both are fondly addressed as Babaji, hence the reason for the thought. I still did not give much significance to that.

I have had the photograph of our beloved Sai in my mandir at home for almost 10 years now but really did not pay much attention to it. But after that incidence, I was some how drawn to the picture, it looked so new, vibrant and fresh as if our beloved Babaji was trying to say something.
All of a sudden my mother who is in India who was very sick decided to go to Shirdi with some relatives. She felt much better after her trip.

 I felt as if Sai was drawing me to him. I did a little research over Internet and fumbled on this big Sai parivar. I was so happy to read all the postings. It confounded my faith on my dear Sai. I felt that our dear Sai had held me by his finger and brought me here to find all these Sai bandus.

Then I discovered the magical Sai Satcharitra, which has almost changed my life. Whenever I read it, it gives me immense peace every time I read that.

My reason for today’s posting is my husband who was looking for a job recently has accepted the offer from a very good company and will be joining soon. We are so thrilled by this miracle. My husband had interviewed with this company before and had not gotten this job as the offer was made to some one else. But the candidate did not accept this job, so the company contacted by husband yesterday (Thursday) and gave us the good news. We are very grateful to our Sadguru for making this happen.

Who else can look after the littlest needs of his children other than our beloved Sai. He has the best plan for each one of us, it is just our impatience and short sightedness that we fail to value this.

Thanks Dipikaji for starting such a  wonderful topic and bringing his leelas to us.

Om Sai, Sri Sai Jai Jai Sai.

My dear guru, always keep your loving tortoise like glance on all of us.

I had been reading Sai Satcharita quite regularly. In one of the chapters I read that like you need a guide to go to a jungle or mountain, you need a Guru to cross the difficult journey of life. As I never had any Guru before I accepted Sainath as my Guru in my heart. I was living abroad and had a great desire to go to Shirdi came back to India and my wife and me despite having keen interest in going to Shirdi for one or another reason could not make it. I was getting very frustrated about it. I was not able to finalize any plans to Shirdi at all. There was someone who was supposed to meet me but because that person could not finalize his program to meet me, we were not able to finalize our journey to Shirdi. Suddenly one day the person I was supposed to meet wrote an email that he is not coming for at least one week. My wife and I immediately planned to leave for Shirdi that evening. All the arrangements got done in minutes. When we reached Shirdi I came to know that it was guru poornima and also sainath was sitting on a gold throne given by one of his devotee. It was like he only had made me wait and finally accepted me to be one of his crores shishya and Gave me Darshan on Guru Poornima day. My wife and me were so glad to take his darshan and for me it was a miracle. His words of Saburi came to my mind immediately. We are too small to know Sai Leela but just need Shraddha and Saburi and miracles do happen. My wife and me were very happy also because that day was our wedding Anniversary.

Deepak
During my visit to Shirdi from 24th, 25th December 2007, I saw a unique photo of Baba, in one of the shop. This photo was unique because it was not available at any other shop. I wanted to take the photo of this. But the shopkeeper was against my taking the picture of this. I had a heated argument with him and finally I was not able to take the photograph. The photo was of Sai Baba standing with his arms open as inviting his devotees to come to him and forget their sorrows. As I was unable to take the picture, I was disappointed and also upset. We had taken the darsan of Sai Baba in the morning, but my wife wanted to visit again in the evening. I told her she may go and take the darshan and I waited outside. She took a packet of parsad and a bunch of rose flowers and went for darshan. She came back after the darshan and on 26th 2007 we drove back to our place. Same evening she handed me the packet of the parsad and asked me to keep at the pooja place in our house. When I saw the parsad I was surprised as the card of Baba kept in the parsad was the same whose picture/photo I wanted to take. This shows that Baba knows what his devotees want. My belief in Baba has increased many fold and I request all devotees also to have faith in him. Bow to Shri Sai. Peace be to all. Jai Sai Ram.

Post by: Dipika on January 05, 2008, 07:16:26 AM
First of all I am submitting this letter to the lotus feet of my beloved BABA.

By the grace of Baba, I share with you all, some precious segments of my life. Baba has been helping me in every possible way. But in desperate times I totally forget all that and start worrying. Now I learnt that nothing is impossible for those who believe in Baba. Neither should helplessness set in for us. He is there to help us all the time. He will never forsake us! I request all the readers not to lose hope in desperate hours. Baba is always there to take care of us. I am a mute spectator to Baba's lute. There are everyday miracles by our Baba in our everyday lives, but this particular incident is unforgettable.

My name is Narayan Swamy Mahadevan. I belong to an average family financially and have a daughter, named Sai Veena N. Swamy who is 18 years old and a son named Sai Venkatesh Mahadevan, who is 14 years old. My wife and I along with our children are all believers of Baba.

My daughter passed her XII Std. CBSE last year (2002) scoring 81 % marks and my son is presently in 9th Std. My daughter wanted to take admission in a professional course last year. She had appeared for an entrance examination conducted by Government of Kerala and the All India Entrance Examination, but she didn’t succeed. In the meantime I tried to get a seat in some professional courses in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, but that also did not materialize.

The huge capitation fees demanded by these private colleges hindered her admission because of my financial position. So I told her to take admission in any of the degree courses without wasting a year, but she didn’t want to do it. I had a strong feeling that if she was destined she would get admission in a college of her choice the successive year. Subconsciously as a father, I had a strong intuition of Baba’s grace. I was confident of Baba’s help, and that he would test us in innumerable ways. I also thought that by the grace of my beloved Baba, this time she would get admission in the college of her choice. But this year also she didn’t succeed.

In despair I wailed in our pooja room. I learnt that her friends had got admitted in some colleges dealing in various schools of medicine. As I browsed through the net I got the following message: “We should not worry. We should have implicit faith in Baba, in our Inner Pilot or in our spiritual Master. We have to feel that not only does Baba know what is best for us, but He will do what is best for us.

We worry because we do not know what is going to happen to us tomorrow, or even the next minute. We feel that if we do not do something for ourselves, then who is going to do it? But if we can feel that there is someone who thinks then we will not worry about our destiny; we will not be afraid of us infinitely more than we think of ourselves, and if we can consciously offer our responsibility to Him, saying, ‘You be responsible. You be responsible for what I do and say and grow into,’ then our past, our present and our future become His problem.

As long as we try to be responsible for our own life, we will be miserable. We will not be able to properly utilize even two minutes out of every twenty-four hours we have. When we can feel that we are Baba's conscious instruments and He is the Doer, of us infinitely more than we think of ourselves, and if we can consciously offer our responsibility to Him, saying, 'You be responsible. You be responsible for what I do and say and grow into,' then our past, our present and our future become His problem. We should not and we need not ever worry about destiny. On the strength of our surrender, we become inseparably one with Saba's cosmic Will.”

As per the above stated Shirdi Message, as per that in my practical experience, there is no need for us to worry about anything. We should have implicit faith in Baba, in our inner pilot or in our spiritual master. We have to feel that not only Baba knows what is best for us, but also he will do what is best for us.

In this critical situation I decided to go on short vacation from Jubail (from 24th July 03 to 14th August 03). Only by the grace of Baba within this period I thought of completing everything connected with admission and reached Cochin (my house) on 24th July 03. The purpose for my leave was mainly to try professional course admission for my daughter.

The day I left that was Thursday, the same day I received Shirdi Message for the week “His Grace” dated 24th July 03. That means I got green signal from my 'Sai Ma’. After seeing this Shirdi mail by ‘Baba’s grace’ I got some courage, the 24th July 03 was Thursday I was very sad, full of tension. I kept on praying, remembering Baba all the time.

During this period through Sri Sathya Sai Organization I met Dr. Sujith, and only by the grace of Baba through the help of Dr. Sujith we all went to J.K.K. Dental College on 01st August 03. With a worried mind my daughter and I entered the Principal’s room for the admission. There I noticed a Picture of ‘Balaji with Padmavathi’ and ‘Baba’. And I also noticed something written in Baba’s picture “I am always with you”. In the meantime Principal agreed to admit my daughter and also informed me to pay the fees yearly. I left everything under the lotus feet of Baba and came out from the Principal’s room with peace and happiness. Once again Baba showered His grace on us and she got BDS admission on 01st August 03 in J.K.K. Dental College, Erode & her BDS classes started on 11th August 03.

We were really surprised but not shocked as we knew as to who had done it all for us. Baba will take care of my daughter, He will arrange everything and also teach her the knowledge, good habits and impart her the power of God. After reading Sai Satcharitra I came to understand Baba's love towards his devotees. And after this incident I completed Sai Satcharitra two reading. Baba has his own ways of helping his devotees. He is always there for his devotees whenever they call him. He tests his devotees and again he rescues them from their difficulties. He is the whole and sole protector of the universe. I can never forget the ‘bhiksha’ you have given to my daughter. May Sai bless you all. For me Baba is anything and everything.

Today (that is 2nd September 03) I received one letter from my daughter stating that Baba started coming in her dream and told her to have 'Padanamaskar'

Today's Ms. Renu’s column dated 24th July 03 & Mr. R.V.S. Mani Column dated 31st July 03 brings the other side of the issues, that is Baba does not leave his devotees. All his actions have a purpose. Ms. Renu is exactly right, that anyone who believes in him strongly.. .he will show up and may be he may not always grant us what we ask for but he'll be always there with us. Still I am confident Baba always helps, he may test us but he'll never leave us with our trouble. Really Ms. Renu is lucky, she got Baba’s darshan.

I had told Baba if he helps me I'll share this with all devotee friends through this forum so that we learn not to let our faith in Baba get shaken in times of crisis. May Baba always help all his children in this way and that with every breath that we take we forever think of him only. And the best news is that by the grace of Baba we will be going to Shirdi during May 2004. I pray to Baba to let this peace remain in my life forever, as money, I think, is only secondary. I have lot of experiences in my life where Baba helped me a lot. He is always with me, with my family and everyone. As of today whatever I am, it's only by the grace of my beloved Baba. Even now also I am able to write this experience only by the grace of Baba. May Sai Baba bless everybody.

Bow to Shri Sai – Peace be to all

Narayan Swamy Mahadevan

Swati
Saibaba, thank you for helping my son become calm and understanding. Everyone was telling us it is his age that makes him behave like the way he does. One day my friend told me that she was reading Sai Satcharita for her son's help and immediately I thought to do so. (Before marriage I used to go to Saibaba temple every Thursday for the evening Arati and it used to make me feel good, however after coming to the US I thought of Baba on and off but did not find out about continuing my devotion here). When I heard my friend was doing so, it felt like Baba was saying He would help me and He has not forgotten me. The day I started reading the book was the first day I saw a change in my son. By the time I finished the book he was a different child. Baba gave me strength to talk to him and somehow made changes in him that he listened to what I was telling him. (The same thing we had been saying for the last 2 years) I told him that I was reading Sai Satcharita to help him go through this difficult phase in life where his body was going through changes and making him behave bad. I asked him if he would like for me to read it loud out to him, he declined. When I started reading, he would take a book and read in the same room as me (he always resisted reading before) and would ask me everyday, what did you learn about Baba's life today. All this is a miracle for me. Thank you for blessing him, I know now You will be with him for the rest of his life and help him through his difficult times. I pray that You accept him as a devotee.

Venkata
I am from Bangalore, presently in USA. I had a great desire to visit USA. One of my friends told me to visit the Baba temple every Thursday continuously for seven weeks. This happened in the year 2000. I think I did seven weeks, but not continuously. So the wish did not happen. I was discussing about this to my colleague last month (October 2007). He asked me to visit the Baba temple in Bangalore. First I went to the temple at JP Nagar and later that week I went to the temple in Ulsoor. After that, I was doing my work as ever before. No possibility of visiting USA was in site. Suddenly one fine day, my manager said, I have been selected for a project in USA and I need to be there as soon as possible. Everything happened like magic. Within 14 days of my manager's announcement, I reached US. I am now in US. I still don't believe how it all happened. My heartfelt thanks to Baba. I am feeling the miracle and enjoying it. Thanks to my friend too. He is a devotee to the core. I wish and pray to Baba, to shower His blessings to all those who seek it.

Sitapati
I was suffering from heartburn for a while. I was too scared to go to doctor and ignoring it for some time. Everyday I used to pray Baba to cure me and relieve my symptoms. One fine day with Baba's blessings my condition got better and since then my symptoms are gone. I have done endoscopy also and everything came normal. Baba is always there for us and you just have to have the patience. Sraddha and Saburi are the two things we should have and Baba is always there for us. May Baba shower His blessings on all his devotees.

Krishna performed many miracles starting in infancy. His adoptive mother, Yashoda, once went to clean dirt from the baby Krishna's mouth and found the entire universe contained within it. Another time he danced on the head of an enormous poisonous snake, thus saving his village from its destructive intentions. As a young man he used to play with the cowherd girls and boys, and he would multiply himself into many Krishna's so each could get his full attention. As an adult he stopped the sun in its course in order to influence the outcome of a battle. In the eleventh chapter of the Bhagavad-Gita Krishna reveals to Arjuna, his friend and disciple, his Universal Form, terrible and awe-inspiring to behold.

The oldest Veda is at least 5000 years old, 3000 years before Jesus. There is no mention of Jesus by name, however, in the Puranas Krishna shows Arjuna a tree that appears to have many dark berries on it. When Arjuna looks closer, he sees each berry is actually Krishna himself. The point of this vision is that Krishna, or God Incarnate, comes in every age and in every culture to restore righteousness and defeat evil. We believe that Jesus, too, is an Incarnation of God, one of the many that have been and will be born in this world throughout time.

Beloved Sai friends,
My name is Dinesh Patel and I live in UK.In the year 2000 I and my wife went to see Sai Babas movie in Leicester. The show was to start at 8.00 pm.We reached the cinema at 7.50 but were told that Sai Babas movie is at another cinema 20 minutes drive from where we were. You can imagine our disappoinment I told my wife we will go to the other cinema and see Babas movie whatever happens. We reached the other cinema at 8.20 and were struggling to find parking. I said to Baba please find me a parking and within a minute we found a parking near the cinema. By now it was 8.30. We bought the tickets and walked into the cinema. We were surprised to see the cinema empty. The manager came in and asked us if we had come to see Sai Babas movie. We said yes and he said I will start the film for you two. I and my wife watched the film in the presence of Baba. Baba gave us a personal darsan. We will never forget this spritual experience.

My name is Vimala Sudhakar and I was in the US for the past 13 years and recently moved to India.
I was not a big baba devotee until one day some one told me to read satcharita. I borrowed the book from my friend and read so that my daughter got into advanced math in school. I did not even have a pocket size picture of baba when I read the Satcharitha. I finished reading it and my daughter also got in the advanced math curriculum. Even then I thought it was a big coincidence and just prayed that someone should give me a picture of baba and I was not going to buy it on my own.
Months passed and this prayer was almost forgotten. Somtime in Sep 2006 my indian neighbor right across from us stopped by at my house (it was a wednesday evening) and she had a small parcel for me. She said she went to India and visited Taj Mahal and  she brought a small momento for me. I accepted the gift and opened it  and guess what, it was a statue of Shirdi Baba. I was totally shaken at this point and asked her why she bought this as she was not a baba devotee herself. She replied saying that for some reason the moment she saw this statue she wanted to buy this for me. What a miracle..
Since it was Wed evening, I thought I will put the statue in my pooja on Thursday. So thursday morning I placed the statue in my pooja and prayed that if I got this statue because of my prayers I should experience a miracle at work.( I was still thinking that I got this statue because of sheer coincidence). I went to work as usual and around 11 am my boss asked me to stop by. So I went thinking he is calling me for some work. The moment I went he closed the door behind and told me I got a 5% raise this year and this raise was given only to me as there was a freeze in the raise  because the company was not doing well. When our raises are usually in May , why did my boss tell me about my raise in September particularly on that day when I prayed that miracle has to happen? Is this also a coincidence or a miracle by baba to pull me close to him?

Hi everyone,
                  I have many experiences to share with u all.I have been a Sai devotee for 10  years.since then I have been witnessing Saibaba's miracles .Whenever I face any problem I pray to Shri Saibaba and saibaba surely shows me a way.
                        Shri Saibaba blessed me with a good husband and two beautiful children.With Baba's grace my husband found a goodjob.when we moved to US ,
when my husbands consultant was not paying him regularly  and he was also threatened to be sued if he changes to another firm.I prayed to Saibaba for help,and Baba helped my husband to find a good consultant.Now he is paid regularly,thanks to Baba again.
                       In 2004 when I was suffering from severe stomachache I started pranayama and on the first day itself when I closed my eyes I saw a vision
in which a white hand was  passing through my abdomen,I didn't make out what it was, but I never got such pain again.It means Sai Baba cured me.
                         In 2005 I had vertigo problem and was asked to undergo scanning for my brain.I was scared and prayed Baba that I will post my experience if
everything is normal.Thanks to Saibaba again everything was normal and Doctors said its due to stress.Now Iam cured of vertigo also.
                            In this way Baba cured me so many times.Baba saved my mother from a critical condition.I will never stop thanking baba for that.We have a serious
family problem and the case is in court for 3 years . Baba is still guiding us and we are waiting for the judgement.If the judgement is in our favour ,I will surely post it again.
                  when we moved to US ,I was so tensed of the long journey with two little kids.I prayed Baba to be with me throught out the journey.I was struggling with two trolleys full of luggage and two kids at the New York airport.My kids are so tired that they started irritating me. I have to change two more flights to my destination which will take 6 hours more including transit time which is so tiresome.I almost cried as I was so tired and not so well due to lack of sleep and handling two kids. I remembered Baba ,and called him to help me.Immediately a gentleman
 saw my plight and offered to  help me.He helped me carry the luggage all through the lifts and a skytrain to other terminal which is so difficult to find on my own.After
reaching there when I was checking in I was told that the flights were cancelled and I have to wait till next day.I burst into tears,and requested  him to help me and see if there is any other flight.I was chanting Sai Sai all the time.The officer after sometime told me that there is a direct flight which will take 3 hours to my destination.I jumped with relief and thanked Baba again.I also thanked that gentleman  so many times for his kind help.
                Recently I had another health problem which became so severe and only prayers to Baba helped me get through.  In this way there are  many times when Baba came to my help.Just have faith in Baba ,he will never leave us in difficult times.
Om Sai Sri Sai Jaya Jaya Sai.

Take UDI and light a Diya in front of BABA daily.

TRUST YOUR GURU FULLY.
BABA WILL GIVE US WHAT WE DESERVE IN LIFE.

He is carrying you in your times of Trials.

THINK POSITIVE,THINK THAT GURU WILL DO EVERYTHING.

Baba is always with everyone. I started praying Him from past five years. I was very disappointed when I went to the Sai Mandir near my house five years back. I just thought maybe I should go to this place, what drew me to the place I still don't know. After the pooja, the priest there gave me Sai's robe and Saicharitha in Hindi and asked me to pray Baba. When I was reading the third chapter itself I could see the change in the life.

Things got settled slowly in my life. Until lately I just reliased that I was not praying Sai from 5 yrs but I did sing His songs long way back without even knowing who He was. It was when I was in 4th standard, I don't remember how I started to go for the Bhajan classes and there was a big photo of Sai and we used sing lots of Bhajans. I was doing this for almost more than 5 yrs. I don't remember why I stopped. The day I realized this I was so thrilled and this increased by faith in Him. It’s very true, Sai knows how to call His devotes to Him, and they would get drawn to Him even without their knowledge.

I still have lots of difficulties in life, but I know I would be able to overcome those with His grace. It’s such a wonderful feeling to reliase that I was praying to Him from a very long time!! Today my faith has increased so much that I feel like praying to Him always..
Sai Ram!!!

My devotee may be thousands of miles away ……….'

(Experience of a 20 year old girl, 1986.) I was floating on cloud nine. My dreams had come true. Here I was, on my way to the U.S. for my studies. I had admission to the course of my choice; at the University, I had dreamed of going to! Baba had made it happen. There was, of course, the pain of being separated from my darling parents, of going away from all that was familiar, loved and known. Here I was on the brink of exploring a whole new world ….a whole new way of life.

 

A few days later, I began to realize how badly I was missing everything and everyone I had left behind – my mother and father, my indulgent grand parents, my friends, my home, my room, my bed…every little thing there! The loneliness which every student has to fight and learn to get over, hit me.

 

The evening was cloudy, dark and gloomy. There was a chill wind blowing, and it did little to cheer me up. I was walking down an empty street, which felt lonelier still as it did not take me home to Mom and Dad. There was no one with me, just no one!

Just then, I remembered Sai Baba's assurance: Wherever you may be, thousand of miles away, which I had read as a child, came back to me. I prayed to my Baba,'Sai, where are you? You promised, Baba, you can be anywhere, anytime, with the one who loves you."

 

I took my handkerchief to my eyes, to wipe my tears….and I felt something rustle against my skin – not like fabric at all. It was something the wind had brought. I took it away from my eyes and looked. I could not believe what I saw – it was Baba's photograph! Here in an alien land on the other side of the earth? It was real….real, not my imagination….as years later, it is still with me, framed in gold, at my bedside!

Baba's leela---SATHYA
This happened 13 years ago, which was when I first knew Sri Saibaba. I think it was 1992, I had severe health problem. I was throwing out whatever I ate. Due to this sickness, there were many nights I slept with empty stomach. There were many, many days, I had everything to eat in the plate front of me, but I could not cherish a single item out of it. I visited few doctors including MDs, they also did "endoscopy" but found nothing. Finally one MD doctor told my father that it had to be solved only by "Doctor of Doctors, keep faith in God". Thus I suffered with health problems for almost two years (I do not remember exactly, but it was more than a year).
After long sufferings, one evening my mother told me just one line, "Pray to Baba, your problems may come to an end". I do not know from where she heard about Baba, till that time no one in my family, nor in my near circles, was a devotee of Baba, except as I remember my (then new) sister-in-law used to go to Baba's temple once in a while. After hearing from my mom, that's the blessed turning point in my life. I started going to Baba Temple. In the very first couple of visits to the temple, I cried a lot (silent cry within my heart, tears can be seen outside if someone is closely observing me) in Baba's sannidhi. I was suffering so much those days that I cried to Him so much, begged Baba the He must help me, I have no other place to go.
In those first few visits, I felt like I reached my deva. I do not know what were the reasons, but as soon as I go to Baba's temple, I use to outburst and plead to help me from my health problems. Those visits on every Thursday to the temple used to make my heart feel light. Interesting thing is, now if I think back – those days I knew nothing about Baba, neither I heard His miracles, nor I knew any of His devotees, nor Baba's life story... any other thing. But as soon as I visited Baba, I felt He is My God, started crying to Him, sat in a corner and meditate on him.
Miracle didn't happen to me next day, or week or month. But it took over the span of the next one year, my health problems slowly disappeared without my notice. In this due course I built my relation with Baba, faith in Baba and love for Him. That's how my new found life started under the Baba's merciful umbrella of protection.

I was having chest pain and uneasiness quite often. I went to my doctor who advised me to do scanning and all other tests and advised me to admit in a hospital immediately. I stayed in the hospital to undergo some other tests and was advised to have an angiography test to see any blockage in the blood vessel. I was only praying Baba that I should not have any serious complaint in my heart. Then I went to Chennai to have my angiogram test. Then I went to Mylapore Saibaba temple and sincerely prayed. Really, Baba has heard my prayers and the result was that I do not have any blockage except a minor one and I will be free of any heart disease for rest of at least ten years. Sachidanandha Sadguru Sai nath Maharaj ki Jai. Thank You Baba.

Swaminathan
I want to share my experiences through this wonderful forum. I became a Sai devotee only recently. When my daughter lost her watch, I prayed to Baba and we found it after two days on the road near my house in tact. How it came there is unexplainable except for His grace. I left my camera in a taxi when we visited Goa. We got it back within a few hours through the intervention of Baba, as the driver was also a Sai devotee. My wife was having much difficulty while sleeping due to chest congestion. I gave her udi one day and from the next day she did not have any difficulty. Thanks Baba for being with us always. I pray to You to always guide us and bless us.

Padmavathi
I am a Sai devotee from my childhood and I have had countless experiences of Lord Sai showering his kind blessings in every day of my life. I would like to share the latest miracle Sai did in my life with all Sai devotees. Currently I am 20 weeks pregnant, my husband has a minor psychological disorder and he was very harsh always using bad words and some times hitting me during my first trimester and I was so terrified that some thing happens to my pregnancy. I used to come from the office and always sitting in a corner in my house because I was so scared of him. I prayed Sai and by Sai's grace he is now a changed person, he is very kind towards me, dropping to the office and helping with the daily chores at home. I also had an ultrasound yesterday; I was so nervous and crying before the sonogram, but prayed Sai during the ultrasound. The doctor said every thing looks good and the baby is growing healthy and we are having a boy. Thank you so much for Your blessings Sai, please shower Your blessings like this on all people who needs help and please bless me to carry my pregnancy full term and deliver a healthy baby! Please fix my husband's health and change his mind so that my in-laws can come here for the delivery.

We wish to share our experience to show Baba's infinite mercy on His bhakthas. We had purchased a house and were waiting for it to be delivered. Meanwhile, the house prices had gone down drastically and everyday we were depressed over the loss we incurred. We had given up all hope, but one fine morning it all happened. As a part of their anniversary sale, the builder had advertised quick delivery homes which were the top of the line in their community than the basic one we bought and we submitted a request to switch us to one of the bigger homes for the same price. The builder, after much hesitation agreed to switch us (it is very difficult as they lose a buyer by doing so). Please note that the previous lot number was 105 and the new one is 150. It is all Baba's mercy that saved us. Look at Sai's leela. It didn't end there. Due to my wife's health problems, we were worried if the grahapravesham will go fine. Not only did Sai ensure that it went fine, but He also blessed us with His picture through one of the attendees as well as the calendar that we had requested.

Parthasarathy
My wife delivered a baby boy on 10th January 2008, Thursday [Baba's day] at 3:44 pm. It was not a normal delivery. It was a caesarian. Till 9th January 2008 the baby weighed only 2 kgs. I prayed to Baba to increase the weight. When the baby was born he weighed 2.4 kgs. Baba had increased the weight of the baby by answering my prayers. Now both my wife and the baby are safe and got discharged on 14th January 2008. Kindly continue to shower Your blessings on three of us to lead a simple and devotional life. We three surrender completely at Your lotus feet. Koti Pranam Sainath.

Shiva
I have been in some trouble, he knows, for a long time. I pray to Sai everyday to take me out of this situation, but, I feel some times he is not with me. I have some plans to implement for myself and others, still reluctant to implement. Today is my birthday and I thought of not celebrating this even. I don't know how I was forced to open my briefcase for a book named 'Devotees's problems, Baba's answers' in the morning. I purchased this book in Shirdi in my last visit. Ask Baba a question and select a random number between 1 to 999, and the sentences assigned to that number, the previous number and the next number are Baba's answers. Believe it or not, you know my question? "Are you with me?". I chose a number between 1 and 999 and I was shocked to see the answers. Here are the three sentences I saw. 1. You will be supported by your siblings and friends always. 2. I am with you always, Believe me and proceed to implement whatever you want. 3. Today is a good day and no one can change your luck. When I was on call with my father yesterday, he told me today is going to be very good day. I did not heed to my father's words. Baba told me the same in his answers. I cried a lot, for asking Baba that stupid question. I know he is with me. He proved it again for me. He is with everyone who loves and prays him. I ran to take bath and get ready. Thanks for being with me BABA. Give me good health and support to implement my plans on time.

Dwarkamai is a mosque where Baba spent about 60 years of his life.

Highly merciful is this Masjid (mosque) Ayi (mother). Once a person climb into her lap, all their troubles are over Sai Baba.

It was an abandoned & dilapidated mud structure. Once Baba was eating with his devotees, there was a loud crack overheard. Baba raised his hand and said Sabar, Sabar (wait, wait). Noise stopped and group carried on with their meal. When they went out, large piece of roof came crashing.

There are five padukas, puja pillar near dhuni, grinding stone and two big portraits of Baba found in Dwarkamai.

Five padukas located at, one on left near cooking place. Second on the wall where he said to have leaned his arm while cooking. Third near dhuni where he used to sit near dhuni. Fourth where Baba used to sit for meeting. Fifth on the black stone kept at right side of entrance.

Padukas signify the presence of a Saint. Taking lowest part of the Saint's body, we touched our highest part of body a head as a gesture of obeisance & respect namaskarams.

Puja pillar or Guru Pillar just in front of the dhuni, the silver padukas are at the bottom if it. On the day of Guru Purnia, Baba ordered to bring the puja material to worship that post. It is only Guru Purnima which Baba asked devotees to celebrate.

Central place on the floor is marked with the tortoise white marble tile. Where Baba horse Shyam Sunder used to bow to Baba and an original location of black stone on which Baba sat.

Sai Baba has always showered His mercies on us. His divine Udi has done miracles in everybody's life. I am not an exception. I had a sore itch on my feet that was badly irritating. I applied The Divine Udi and in just a few days the sore was gone. I did not take any medicine. It was the miraculous Udi that healed my feet and no scar was left.

My daughter had food poisoning one night. I didn't have any medicine with me nor was any doctor available at that hour. I gave her Baba's Udi and in no time she slept as if nothing had happened to her. She too is Baba's devotee now.

My wife was suffering from migraine for last 15 years. It was only Baba's Holy water and Udi that cured her. She is greatfully devoted to Him.

There have been many such miracles that Baba had shown and blessed us in last 6 years.

I only wish this world is blessed by Baba and all the evil come to an end.

Aum Sai Ram

Once Sai Baba performed a miracle before which all other supernatural powers pale into insignificance. This was to revive the dead. The daughter of the maternal aunt of Vasudeo Sitaram Ratanjanakar, who had come to Shirdi, had this experience. The daughter had developed Tuberculosis. As treatment of doctors had proved ineffective, she was being given only udi of Sai Baba as medicine. She also began saying that unless she had the darshan of Sai Baba, she would not get well. Though the girl's condition was delicate, Ratanjanakar brought her to Shirdi and took her for Sai Baba's darshan. Baba let off a volley of abuses and said, "Let her lie on the kambal (coarse blanket) and keep her on water." Accordingly, she was given only water for seven days and on the eighth day the girl died in the morning when it was time for Sai Baba to wake up. That morning Sai Baba was in Chavadi but He did not get up at the usual time. It was eight 0'clock and yet Sai Baba was asleep! It was the first time in the history of Shirdi for Sai Baba to wake up so late. People began attending to the arrangements for the funeral of the girl. The girl's mother and Ratanjanakar's mother were weeping and other devotees were trying to pacify them. Just then the girl made some movement, yawned and looked around bewildered. All were gladdened on seeing this. Then the girl narrated the following account: A dark man was forcibly taking her away when she called out to Sai Baba. Immediately Sai Baba belabored the man with his staff, rescued her and took her to Chavadi. The girl had not seen Chavadi but she described it vividly. While all this was happening in Dikshit wada where Ratanjanakars were staying, people were discussing animatedly why Sai Baba was still asleep.

Suddenly, Sai Baba got up in Chavadi, shouting loudly, and striking his staff on the ground, ran in the direction of Dikshit wada. There was excitement all around, and the hearts of the bhakthas (devotees) were filled with joy and wonder at the miracle Sai Baba performed in this mortal world.

(From "Shri Sai Baba" by Swami Sai Sharan Anand, translated into English by V.B. Kher)

Chandrashekhar
Here I will post one of my experiences related to my IT job. I was finding it very difficult to cope up with other employees because of my lack of experience in this field and also I was not able to gain much experience in this company. Then my wife asked me to read Sai Satcharitra in a sapthah. I started reading it and finished reading in a week. After this I received an interview call from an IT company from Mangalore and I got selected in that with a good salary. The employees there, I found very co-operative and I learned a lot in programming in this company because of the grace of my Sai. As soon as I got a job in Mangalore, I was looking out for a house and prayed in a Sai temple for getting room very close to the Sai temple. The next day one of the brokers showed me a room, which is located in front of that Sai mandir only. I was wonderstruck by this incident and thought Sai would always guide me in every aspect of life. Then onwards I started gaining good experience in IT field. I was always worried because I was very new to this field and I was treated as a fresher wherever I was interviewed. I faced lots of interviews and could not clear any one of them. Each time I used to get dejected and pray in front of Sai humbly. One fine day I got a call from Bangalore for an interview. I prayed Sai to clear this interview. After the telephonic interview immediately I got a call from the HR, saying that I am through with this interview and I was called for the personal and HR round of interview. I cleared the personal round and then HR round of interview started. I was demanding for a decent amount of salary, and the HR manager didn't agree for this. He told they are able to pay less than what I demanded. He asked me to wait at reception for some more discussion with the Managing director.

Then I remembered Sai and prayed Him humbly at the reception. I told Sai, "If You could make this HR guy agree with my demand I would pay half of my first salary to Shirdi Medical trust". Then lo?.within some 15 minutes HR manager came back to me and shook my hand saying that I am selected and they are ready to pay the amount what I demanded. I was very happy and thanked a lot to my Sai. And after joining this company, I became very confident and doing well in this field. Here also I got good friends and all were co operative. Then I went to Shirdi and paid my half salary.

Deepak
This was a unique experience, which took place in mid December. Bhopal had become cold and as a practice people burn wood to keep themselves warm. We have two guards during night in our housing society. As usual they used to lit fire and at night sit around it. I have a habit of going out at night to see the guards. As per my wife's instruction she used to accompany me. On a particular night it was really very cold and as usual I got up but as it was very cold I again went off to sleep. Suddenly I realized a person standing at the entrance of my bedroom door and instructing me to go and check the guard. The person was wearing a khaki half pant and a khaki shirt and was bare foot with small hair on his head. I got up and walked out with my wife. What I saw both the guards were nicely sleeping in the guardroom and all the doors and windows were closed and a fire was lit inside. The fire was giving out smoke and had I not gone out on the instruction of the unknown person both the guards might have died. My question is who was the person. Was it Sai Baba? I think so. Baba saved both the guards. Sai Baba is great.

Sai devotee
My husband was going through lot of problems regarding his job, he was working as a contractor for 4 months. After leaving his full time job, he was trying a lot, going through interviews, everything was finalized but results were not coming up, then once when I was reading some article about Sai, I came across strange thing that Baba used to say if you think that you can handle each and every thing then why do you say that you believe me and just do not surrender anything. So I decided to surrender to Sai, not to think anything and in one week he got a full time job opportunity, got through in that week, and today that is Thursday he already received an offer letter, which was not possible in these four months. It happened in only two Thursdays, I am grateful to Baba.

I am writing this article from the bottom of my heart. Sai always tells us that believe in him when we are in distress. This happened to me recently about 15 days back. I have been offered an employment abroad 3 months back. One of my friends who had also applied at the same time as me got his Visa approved. But my Visa has been kept on dragging for almost 2 months. Then one day when I was in total distress my brother-in-law who is also a Sai devotee called me and asked me to read Sai Satcharita starting from Thursday. He also told me to finish it within next 7days (i.e. by next Wednesday). When he told me to read I thought within myself that Swamy himself had asked me to read. I started reading the book from Thursday and finished on next Wednesday. Only with the grace of Swamy I was able to finish reading the book. Next day morning after finishing the book, I performed pooja and arathi to swamy and went to office. Suddenly, when I checked my mail after reaching office, I got my Visa approved letter from the Government. There are no words to explain the grace of Swamy. I am having tears in my eyes when I am writing this article. From that day onwards I am always looking at Sai when I am in distress. Baba always tells us "Believe in me, I will look after you". Nowadays I am feeling that Baba is always near to me. Thousands of Pranams to Swami's lotus feet.

Mridula
I am also one of fortunate recipients of Saibaba wall calendar and I would like to thank the committee for this wonderful initiative! As soon I submitted the request for calendar from UK, I was eagerly looking into the post every day, but I used to be disappointed. I was getting restless and just when I had almost given up hope, there came the calendar! The best part was the timing, as during that week, I was actually weighing some future career options and was praying Baba profusely to show some guidance and show some clarity. So, Saibaba's calendar came along with this information booklet on the relevant subject. It is as though Baba is guiding me by showing the future by coming home along with relevant information. Though I am still confused, I would certainly reckon this event as good indication and pray Baba to guide me as always. It was indeed a gratifying experience! I would like to thank Baba and all the committee members once again. I am on look out for Saibaba's temple in London and I am hopeful that I would able to find one very soon.

Rajeswari
As I am working as a consultant in one CMM level 5 company, I never expected that I would get the opportunity to travel to USA. Usually the company will send only their employees and not consultants. But it is my luck, which Sainath blessed me. Now I am in USA. Today I visited Baba temple and I did 108 pradashkinas. I am very thankful to Baba to bless me with this. Baba, hope my husband and me will come soon here again with H1 visa.

After reading through different experiences people have had with our beloved Sai, I feel like writing mine too. Hope this experience of mine will instil further faith in Sai devotees and assure them that Sai is with them at all times.
I have had many experiences and I am sure my Baba will make me write them all.
This experience I had was in 1998 when I got introduced to my Sai through a friend of ours. Although a few family members of mine believed in Sai, I was not into Sai. We are in US since 1995 and have had various ups and downs in our life. My husband was looking for a job then and it was very much necessary for our continued stay in USA.
All I had was a very small picture of Sai that I had taken print out from internet. I started reading Sai Ashtottara every day and repeat his name continuously. My education and job was dependent on my husbands visa status here. My husband got a job offer during this time. The interview went very well. I had complete faith in my Sai. But we had not heard from the employer yet. One day while I was getting my daughter back from her pre school at around 11:30 am, I saw an elderly person in 50s or early 60s doing some construction work outside our apartment. He had a long white shirt and white cloth tied on his head. I saw him once and felt like turning back to see him again and I came inside my house. Deep inside me, I felt like I saw my Sai and my heart started palpating fast. I came and bowed to my Sai picture in my pooja room. Meanwhile my prayers to Sai continued continuosly and my husband was offered a job too. In the next two days I saw the same same person again doing some painting work outside. I realized that he is Sai giving me his darsahn. Once I realized that, I never saw him again. I saw many other construction workers but never saw him. My eyes literally searched for that person. We were not sure if my husbands H1 visa would be granted as that years quota was almost going to be ending. But by Sai's grace everything went so smoothly and we were ready to relocate to that new place where my husband would start working. Sai namasmarana was going on continuously. The movers packed all our stuff and loaded in their huge truck. My husband, my three year old daughter and myself got into the car ready to drive to new place. We locked the apartment, handed over the keys to the leasing office and prayed Sai for making everything so smooth and started driving. Just when we entered the corner of the street and was ready to make a turn, there came a car from the oppsite direction. In that car was the same person with that white cloth on his head, waving his hand. I looked around and saw no other person or no other car. It was SAI waving at me and wishing me luck!!! You can imagine the inexplicable joy in me. For those who don't believe in Sai, this might seem to be a fable or coincidence. But to me it was a real blessing. Sai has always been with me and have had many other experiences. I will post my other experiences later. SAIRAM!!!!!!!!!

My husband and myself are new migrants to Australia. Before coming here we were really doubtful of the place like when we will get the job and proper accommodation. But we had full trust on Sai Baba. After coming here my husband got the job in the very second week but I was still looking for some job. Last Thursday I read this Sai newsletter for the first time. Actually my husband has taken the subscription of this Sai Vichaar newsletter and I read the letter in his mail box only. I was very much tensed about the job but after reading the experiences of Sai devotees I thought if today I get any interview call I will surely submit my experience in this newsletter and with Sai Kirpa I received an interview call after few hours. That just looked to me as a miracle. Now, I have given the interview and I am just waiting for my interview results. I have full faith in Sai Baba that my Baba will help me again with the results and I will be able to start my job soon. Please Sai Baba I need your help once again and throughout my life. Please give Your blessings to my husband, all my family members and me. Everyone has got great trust on You.

Raghuram
Last Thursday I have posted in Prayer Club about my problem of money. I was really upset and did not had any idea of how I can manage the situation. It is just like miracle You have made me and my family to get more than required amount of money. Thank you very much Baba for helping us to pay for my children's school fee, purchase of books etc. Please make us to be Your great devotees, make us to remember always, be with us and bless us always.

Rajeswari
I would really like to share one of my experience with all other devotees for what Baba says when we face problem in our life. My husband resigned his full time job and went for a contractor position, the job was good, the money was also good, but we were not saving anything, and there was a fear as soon as the contract is done he has to move for another job and he could not stay there. He had applied for lot of full time jobs, but nothing was working out. He was so tensed regretting for everything, but Baba says that if you surrender everything to me then it's my problem and not yours, don't even think of that, He is the one who has to take care of the problem, and the same thing happen. my husband got a full time job in Microsoft. He not only gave him a full time job, but also a job for which he does not have to worry for years. My humble pranams to Baba and I pray to almighty to bless us and be with us every time and guide us to do all the activities. Sairam

Chandana
This morning when I opened the Sai newsletter the first line which said "Don't worry" truly gave me goose bumps. Whenever I am nervous, or scared or worried about anything something from inside me says, "Don't worry". I always ignored that voice thinking my heart was trying to soothe me but never realized that Baba was trying to comfort me and re-assure me that everything is going to be alright. Whenever I was praying to Baba I always wondered if He was listening to me. My doubts were cleared because till today whatever I have prayed for Baba have come true. Baba, I owe my life to You and forever indebted to You. My daughter was born because of You. My husband got a wonderful job because of You. For all you Sai devotees out there any prayer sent out with sincerity and devotion is always listened by Baba

Anjali
I would like to share my experience with all of Sai devotees. Since our marriage we were facing loads of difficulties. I always prayed, cried, fought with Baba to help us to be happy. We moved abroad 5 years ago and our difficulties increased. My husband was struggling to get job after his university course, so one day his friend suggested him to go back to India and change his profession and learn completely new course. So my husband went back to India, was there for 6 months and just 1 day before he was about to come back, his father passed away. My husband stopped believing in God when he lost both his parents within 1 year of each other. We both felt very dejected as we both were looking forward to be with each other, he to start job and then suddenly losing the most beloved person in his life, his dad. Both of us lost all hope in life and got depressed. I kept praying Baba, reading Sai Satcharita. Baba was always guiding us; He helped my husband to finish all legal work with minimal difficulties and always showered His mercy on us every minute. We saw so many miracles happening like his sisters creating problem and then changing mind in next few days, some corrupt official troubling us and then suddenly he got suspended for being corrupt. After all this my husband was able to join me recently and starting looking for job. I started reading Sai Satcharita and decided to finish it from one Thursday to next Thursday. On the Thursday when I was suppose to finish Sai Satcharita, I was working for 13 hours, and still 50 pages of Satcharita were left. I prayed Baba and requested Him to please help me finish my Satcharita.

continued.....
Suddenly in evening at work, I got free time (which normally is impossible); I was able to finish remaining pages. My husband was waiting to hear results of his interview, I kept on telling Baba that I will be happy with whatever the results are and had firm faith that whatever He does is for our best. When I went home at 10.00 pm, my husband told me that he couldn't succeed in his interview. I cried a bit, but then suddenly got relaxed and told Baba, if You think this is best for us, I accept it as Your prasad. Then next day my husband got a call from the same company that there was a mistake, my husband has got selected for the job and should join soon. Many times when my wish was not fulfilled, I use to go to Baba, cry for sometime and then stop talking to Baba for some days. This time, I had firm faith that He will do the best, I was so happy and felt as if Baba tested me and I passed in His faith test. Looking back, I feel that every thing happened by His wish and for a purpose. My husband could stay with his father for 6 months before his father passed away. And he was able to sort out everything by Baba's grace. All this would not have been possible if he had a job. Always shower Your mercy on both of us.

Ranjeeth
I wish to share with each one of my true experiences with Sai. Please patiently go through this and a true testimonial to how dear Sai saved me. I am 52 years old now and seven years back things started working against me in my life without my knowledge but trapped in the net of ego, arrogance and over confidence. Advice from my elders was of no value to me, since I was traveling through the path of ruins. All vices invaded me; I lost a very decent job and became a liability to my aged parents, wife and children. My addiction to liquor even at this stage made me stoop down to indecent levels just for a drink and one day out of sheer stupidity and arrogance I consumed maximum liquor with an over dose of sleeping pills to end my life. My stars, I was rushed to hospital and admitted in IMCU, the doctors diagnosed it as substance abuse, but luckily it was not informed to the police due to the influence of my friend and relatives. My bad luck, even after this incident, nothing was working in my favor or rather situation grew from bad to worse, my parents and my family where terribly worried and there was not a single deity my mother prayed for me. At this juncture my elder son was in his 2nd year of Engineering and the second in 5th standard. Lack of income and mounted debts with the credit card and personal loans forced me to keep shifting my residence, but one day the situation became terribly worse, that I was forced to dispose all my belongings except our clothes and finally me and wife stayed at a friend's house. My elder son stayed in a hostel and my younger one with my parents. My parents were very depressed and one day my father wrote a letter to a religious woman in Kerala requesting her to show me a way .The lady wrote "Ask your son to spend 42 days in Shirdi", but my father was a bit hesitant to tell me and pondering how to convince me about my staying in Shirdi. It was on this day dearest Sai entered my life.

continued.....
On 15th June 2003, I left for Shirdi with my mother, younger son and a group of devotees from Chennai and I stepped into Shirdi on 17th June 2003. My mother, son and other devotees departed to Chennai after two days leaving me behind. 42 days of stay in Shirdi was a will of Shri Sai and I am extremely delighted, honored, blessed that as stated by our beloved Sai in " Sai Satcharitra", I as a sinner was called to Shirdi. None can visit Shirdi without His will and even if one is called, he cannot overstay without the will our beloved Sai. Dear devotees! my 42 days stay in Shirdi was a divine one, witnessing miracles around me. During my stay Sai blessed me to daily visit the famous Neem tree, Gurusthan, Dwarakamai, Masjid, Samadhi mandhir, Hanuman temple, Radhakrishna mai's house, Kandoba temple and above all the morning, noon, evening, night arathis and the Thursday phalaki procession. Can anyone be more bleessed or luckier than me? After my return from Shirdi, my life changed and toady Sai is everything to me. Sai is with me and I am one with Sai. Have true faith on our Sai and experience by yourself the experiences you would not have experienced. Today, we are a happy family, my son is a software Engineer with a leading MNC, my younger son is in 11th Standard and my beloved parents are leading a very peaceful life. All this would not have happened, but for the grace showered by my beloved Sai.

Om Shri Sainath Maharaj ki Jai
 
I had attend an interview some days back.He asked me some questions,which I dont have exp on that. I saw sai idol i that interviewer cabin so I prayed with my eyes and answered what ever comes in my mind( just guess).When i came out and checked in books, to my suprise those are all right answers. So that day i got hope that baba helped me and definetly i will get that job.I waited 2 weeks, bt no call from them .so i called in turn, they said that post got already filled.
I broke down with tears, all my hopes vanished. No words to say, just i onstantly looking at babas poto and crying at him .
 
In parayanam , i came to know that baba dont allow his devotees to do fast he wants all devotees 
to eat stomach full. Inspite of knowing that wantedly i didnt have anything that afternoon.(eventhough i bought my lunch box)
 
I was seeing baba's photo and questioning him y he did like that?? am punishing myself for having excees hopes. So i decied not to have lunch, saying that am seeking punishment like that.
 
Many of my staff invited for lunch, but i told them that my stomach is full.....But after 1 hr, one person came and take me outside saying that our Ex collegue has come and waiting outside. I met him and he invited for lunch,even i said i had already , he asked just to give company and not to have anything. Finally I sat simply and he ordered two biryanis, which is my fav food. I argued a lot that i didnt have, but nearly 1 hr he tried to convey me.
 
Finally i had some, at the time of laving he gave baba poto to me paid the bill and left.
 
I dont know why he came , after esigning and y he called me , ( as many ppl are in my company ) and y he gave baba poto to me .
 
Then i understood, itz all baba miracle, he never let his devottes to suffer from hungry, finally he made me eat ,that too my fav food
 
great na

Sai Ram to all,
 
My name is Vimala Sudhakar and I was in the US for the past 13 years and recently moved to India.
I was not a big baba devotee until one day some one told me to read satcharita. I borrowed the book from my friend and read so that my daughter got into advanced math in school. I did not even have a pocket size picture of baba when I read the Satcharitha. I finished reading it and my daughter also got in the advanced math curriculum. Even then I thought it was a big coincidence and just prayed that someone should give me a picture of baba and I was not going to buy it on my own.
Months passed and this prayer was almost forgotten. Somtime in Sep 2006 my indian neighbor right across from us stopped by at my house (it was a wednesday evening) and she had a small parcel for me. She said she went to India and visited Taj Mahal and  she brought a small momento for me. I accepted the gift and opened it  and guess what, it was a statue of Shirdi Baba. I was totally shaken at this point and asked her why she bought this as she was not a baba devotee herself. She replied saying that for some reason the moment she saw this statue she wanted to buy this for me. What a miracle..
Since it was Wed evening, I thought I will put the statue in my pooja on Thursday. So thursday morning I placed the statue in my pooja and prayed that if I got this statue because of my prayers I should experience a miracle at work.( I was still thinking that I got this statue because of sheer coincidence). I went to work as usual and around 11 am my boss asked me to stop by. So I went thinking he is calling me for some work. The moment I went he closed the door behind and told me I got a 5% raise this year and this raise was given only to me as there was a freeze in the raise  because the company was not doing well. When our raises are usually in May , why did my boss tell me about my raise in September particularly on that day when I prayed that miracle has to happen? Is this also a coincidence or a miracle by baba to pull me close to him?

Sai devotee
I would like to share my recent experience with Sai. He has been in my life since many years, but I would like to share this specific miracle: Me, my husband and our two kids stayed in the US. We wanted to move to India for good. Last year, we did not take permission from Baba. We just listed our home on the market and even though we had a great home, and numerous price drops, nothing happened. We thought we made a mistake by thinking of going back to India without Sai's permission and we pulled our home from the market and dropped the India plans. In that week, my husband's job wasn't satisfactory, so he quit without any other job in hand. He was home looking for a different job. He was looking something close to home, but this job just landed up in his lap without he even trying hard. But this was a long distance job, which he had to travel Monday thruogh Thursday. But he just took it up, upon Sai's permission. Within two months into this job, they asked him if he can take this account to India and run it from there. We were not even expecting it. So we thought this was Sai's way of making our India plan. So we took it up. He had to go to India within the next week and he just left with our older child. I was in the US with a toddler, still working and we listed our home on the market again and trying to wrap things up in the US to make our return to India possible. I was a big worrywart. Just left everything up to Baba's grace. Sarvasya saranagathi was Baba for me. Luckily, my manager agreed for me to work from India. So I just made our plans to go back to join my husband with the home still sitting on the market without any interest from buyers. We came to India and I started working and everyday our thoughts always were surrounded by how worse the economy is in the US and how can we pay mortgage in dollars while earning in rupees.

continued......
Last Thursday we had a showing during Madhyahna aarti time. I was not expecting anything, I just slept and the next morning, I had so many messages from my realtor trying to reach us. I was scared and called her. We had an offer. No contingencies at all and received a very good offer. We close in two weeks on a Thursday too. Nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Baba for being with us through all the difficulties.

Rajeswari
Recently I was a bit worried, as my 15-month-old son was still not walking. Usually by this age, they say that a child should stand up and walk. I prayed to Baba with full faith and made a promise that I would submit my experience. Within 3 or 4 weeks of my making this promise my son started walking. Thanks a lot Baba for all the kindness that you have shown to my family and me. I sincerely pray that I conduct myself in the path shown by You.

Etika
A few months back I went to Baba's temple on a Sunday and saw a girl reading Baba's book which I had never seen before. I asked her what that book was, she replied it is "Sai Satcharita by Indira kher" and was in more detail. I kept thinking in my mind "Wow she is so lucky to have that book, definately a blessed daughter of Baba." Just one and a half month ago during my normal visit to the temple, I saw that book being sold at the tuck shop in the temple. Before I could ask them about the price, a boy paid the money and bought it. I asked if they had another copy and they said "no". I was a bit sad but then thought all is Baba's wish. As soon I turned back I saw that girl whom I had seen reading the book for the first time. She called and told me, "I had gone to Shirdi and have bought Sai Satcharita by Indira Kher for you". I was speechless, believe me for few minutes I was numb. Baba definately listens to all our prayers and they will get answered at the right time. Love You always Baba!




Vaijayanthi
I have to write this experience, which is a great miracle of my Sadguru. I had a terrible year at work and I was praying to my Sadguru to relieve me of my problems. My guru, who knows it all, did the greatest miracles of all times and relieved me of my problems in a split second. I am very grateful to him and I bow down to him with humility and faith that he may keep this child of his always with Him.

Recently we signed a contract for a new house. After few days, my husband came to realize that it is a bad deal. He asked Baba through a chit of "yes" and "no" and Baba guided him through a right way. We said no for the house and our real-estate agent started the problem. He gave us very hard time but my faith with Baba was strong. After 2 months, the realtor released us from the contract and gave us back our money. Have patience and faith in Baba.

Post by: Dipika on April 08, 2008, 01:50:35 AM
In the year 1991, I was trying for a good marriage alliance for my daughter but could not succeed in the process. It was on 01-01-92 New Year's day morning that I prayed to Sri Sai Baba of Shirdi and asked for a message regarding the marriage of my daughter. I closed my eyes and opened a page in the Sai Sat Charitra written by Sri Nagesh Vasudev Gunaji. To my surprise it was page 241 chapter 47 and the message was "I told him not to worry about this, as the bridegroom himself would come seeking her".

I was very happy as the message indicated the marriage of my daughter would take place in the year 1992. In the month of January 1992 a friend of mine took the necessary details of my daughter in the pursuit of finding a good groom. On 17-02-1992 I received a phone call from a person from Visakhapatnam interested in my daughter's details. I was in a dilemma and prayed to Baba. I had my prayer answered immediately by Baba to go ahead with the proposal.

The groom and their parents liked my daughter and on 20-02-1992, the marriage of my daughter was fixed. The marriage was fixed on 10-05-1992 at 06.58 a.m. in Hyderabad. I prayed to Baba to help me in the marriage activities and for the success of the marriage on 22-03-1992. When I was taking a nap in the afternoon, Sri Sai Baba appeared in my dream in the form of my Father (Late Sri R.V.Rao) and promised me that he will help me in my daughter's marriage and will also attend the marriage.

Chapter 40, page 212 in Sai Satcharitra, Baba has said "I always think about those who remember me, I require no conveyance, i.e carriage, Tonga, (Horse drawn Cart) or an Aero plane. I run and manifest myself to him, who lovingly calls on me". Baba has also said in Sai Satcharita page 151 chapter 28 "I have no form nor any extension - I live Everywhere" Baba has further told in chapter 40 page 213 "See, to keep my words I would even sacrifice my life, I would never be untrue to my words". I totally surrendered to Him and started with the marriage arrangements.

In the month of March 1992 wedding cards were printed out and as per the directions of Baba I had the first card posted to the Ganesh Temple, Ranathambhor, the second card to Balaji Temple, Tirupathi and the third card to Sri Sai Baba in Shiridi. Then I posted five cards abroad and prayed to Baba that at least one family from abroad should attend the wedding.

The day before the wedding I prayed to Baba to help me in carrying out the necessary activities. On the day of wedding I was very busy in the morning that I could not read the Sai Satcharita. I had gloated with pride about finding time to read the Sat Charitra every day. Sri Sai got me really busy that I was unable to read the Satcharitra, thereby removing my pride.

I should confess that I had totally forgotten Baba in the marriage activities. It was around 11.45 a.m when the pandit came to me along with a Brahmin and asked me to give some Dakshina to him. I thought the Brahmin must be his relative, and offered Rs.21/- as Dakshina. The Brahmin then enquired about the food and was sent to the dinning hall by the pandit to partake of the wedding meals.


I walked about the dinning hall inspecting the proper serving of the meals. I noticed the Brahmin smiling at me. I left the place thinking that he might ask for more money. Caught in the wedding activities I was unable to find time to even eat that day. After the Muharat in the morning my well wisher from U.S.A pointed out that had I not taken the breakfast, I would have taken up continuous fasting against Baba's words. Baba did not approve of fasting and never allowed His devotees to observe a fast. (Ref.Chapter 32 page 173). That night I prayed to Baba with gratitude for successfully organizing the wedding.

I was grateful to Baba for all His blessings and support, however I felt it was a breach of promise on the part of Baba for having not attended the wedding. But Baba was one who did not go against his words. Hence I humbly prayed to Baba requesting Him to show me the form with which he attended the wedding.
And lo! Baba appeared to me in my dream, smiling in the form of the Brahmin (who took Rs.21/- from me as Dakshina) I immediately presented myself in front of His picture sought his forgiveness blaming myself for not having recognized Him . The next day to quench my curiosity I enquired the pandit about the Brahmin. He informed that the Brahmin was a stranger who happened to attend the wedding. I felt that He was no stranger and was none other than the merciful Sai.

Bow to Shri Sai and peace be to all.

Last year my son got a very high fever of 104F, I tried all means to reduce the fever, but it was rising very fast. We got scared and called the paramedics, the fever was so high that my son got a seizure and he was not responding. The paramedic guys were trying to revive my son and at the same time trying to calm me and my husband, I gave my son to these people and sat near Baba's picture and Baba's idol on my hand, in that moment I felt I lost everything, I prayed to Baba and told him to take every material things I have, just return my son. The paramedics gave my son oxygen and took him in an ambulance. We spent the night in the hospital, I was reading Sai Satcharitra, and slowly my son's body temperature came down. He was looking better. I thanked the paramedics from the bottom of my heart, because they were like Baba had send them to me, they knew exactly what to do. Later one of those people told me he had a similar situation with his son. This is all due to Baba's miracle; he will always listen to his devotee's prayers. With this incident Baba was trying to tell me what matters most in life, it is our family, the fact that we are healthy and breathing, isn't that the most important thing? Bow to Shri Sai, Peace be to all.

Having been posted to Hyderabad for 20 months, my roommate, who works as General Manager of a renowned Mumbai based company, was yearning to get himself transferred back to Chennai. Whenever, there were two or more consecutive holidays, he would fly back to Chennai to be with his family members and stay with them as long as possible. In December last year, I suggested to my roommate to sincerely pray to Baba for his transfer and take a solemn pledge that he would visit Shirdi at the earliest possible date. Accordingly, a few days later, I accompanied him to Shirdi for a day. He was not much of a Baba devotee. I told him that Baba would bestow His beneficence on him if he prayed with single-minded devotion. Subsequently, I told him that his transfer back to Chennai would take place before end of March 2008. I advised him, meanwhile, to plead with his company management to arrange his relocation to Chennai on health grounds. He said, it would be a miracle if he were relocated to Chennai by the end of March. I however maintained my earlier statement that his transfer would be effected as predicted by me. Meanwhile, he went on sick leave to stay with his family members and returned in the third week of March. To our delight, immediately after my roommate's return to Hyderabad, he received an official order from his management in the fourth week of March that effective 1st April 2008, his services were relocated to Chennai. I have personally experienced that Baba comes to the rescue of his true devotees in their distress in uncanny ways. In the past issues of Sai Vichaar I have narrated a couple of the inscrutable events that I had experienced myself over the last two years.

Jai Sai Ram to all the devotees
Life has been full of challenges in the last few months and by baba's grace i got an opportunity to visit shirdi in March.
We stayed in shirdi for 3 days and the whole experience was quite amazing.
The day we had to leave shirdi we attended baba's Madhyan aarti in Dwarkamai and took permision to leave.I had this feeling that we should also go to Samadhi Mandir just one last time,so we went to check the queue and it was quite long.My husband said we might get late in checking out from the hotel as the line seems long.I came out of the queuing hall with a heavy heart and said "all is baba's wish".We then decided to say goodbye to baba from the small window that opens in the Samadhi Mandir.While my husband was standing there with his closed eyes,i went ahead and asked the security man to please let us in as we were leaving that day.While i was talking to him 2 other women came and stood next to me to go inside as well.Looking at 3 of us he said"NO"sorry u have to stand in a line.Just i was about to turn back and start walking towards my husband a man came with a VIP pass and told the security guy that i will go inside with him.I was in shock for few seconds and then called out my husband to join us as well.
I sincerely don't have words to express my feelings when i was standing right in front of baba's statue in samadhi mandir.
Baba will always take care of us and make sure we go happy from shirdi......
For me getting darshan just before i leave was very important and baba made sure my wish got fulfilled.
Always love u baba
Never leave us and we love u to the core of our heart

I wish to share our recent experiences and how Baba has helped us. On March 12th, 2008 we experienced a severe storm and the retaining wall, fence and paving at home was damaged. More importantly the water was gushing into the yard and was lapping at the doorstep. All of us cried out to Sai and prayed that as He has stopped the Ganges, He must please save us from the house being flooded. Baba never fails for He heard our cry and we were saved from flood damage to our home and belongings. Praise to Shri Sai. We thank Baba for the repairs that have been completed. On 13th March, someone who is known to my brother took a hammer and damaged all the glass and some other parts of our car. The insurance company was not prepared to authorize repairs to all the damage, but we held on to Baba and everyday prayed to Him and finally the repairs were authorized and I collected the car today fully repaired. To Baba be all the glory. Fellow brothers and sisters, I was still experiencing anxiety attacks when thinking of all that has to be dealt with and then today I read an email where Baba says that we are all under His protection and I pray Baba to take my fears away. We thank Him for carrying us through all these mishaps and commit all unto His hands and protection. Baba never fails. Om Sai Shree Sai Jai Jai Sai. Please Sai never leave us nor forsake us for it is unto You that we look from whence cometh our help. Bless and protect and shower Your grace upon all Your children.
Srikanth
I want to share my experience with Sai devotees. I am worshiping Saibaba for many years. During all this period I have gone through so many experiences with Him and He helped me in so many situations and still He is helping me. Personally I am not a bright person and well behave character, I use to have so many bad habits like smoking, drinking, laziness, blaming others etc. I promised Sai so many times, if You help me from this problem I will stop doing all this bad stuff but I failed so many times to keep up those promises. Even though Saibaba fulfills all my wishes like coming to USA, getting a job and getting married. After coming to USA I stopped drinking and smoking with Baba help. It has been almost 6 years now. But from last 2 years I am going through lots of problem like immigration and financial problems. I lost all the money whatever I earned here and I end up with a big debt. In thiese two years my life has been changed a lot, I stopped doing all the bad stuff and I am leading my life in a good path. I am very much confident that Baba will take care of all my problems. When you totally give yourself to Baba, He takes care of you. So all my friends just have complete faith on Him.

Deepak
This was a unique experience, which took place on April 17th 2008. I along with my wife had gone to attend a marriage reception. As it is my habit to carry a pen having Sai Baba's photo in my shirt pocket. That day also, I was carrying a pen having Baba's photo. When my wife and me went to the dice to give blessings to the newly wed couple, the bride noticed that a pen was hanging from the saree of my wife. When this was told to her she was quite surprised as there was no point of her carrying the pen and that too hanging from the saree. I suddenly noticed that, that was my pen, which I had kept in my pocket. I was surprised to see and was unable to understand how the pen had gone to my wife. My wife in turn gave that pen to the bride, as Baba's blessing to her. Now the important thing happened. The bride inform my wife that as she was a staunch believer of Baba she had asked Him to come and bless her on the occasion of her marriage and somehow Baba had kept His appointment with her, in the shape of a photo coming with a pen. May Sai Baba bless all.

Jagannathan
I am been a devotee of Shirdi Sai Baba since many many years and on innumerable occasion I could feel his hands blessing me in tiding over many of the difficulties that I had to face in my life. Recently, I had been asked to deliver a project within a very short time requiring approvals from a number of higher levels of officials. There were many obstacles at every step. I felt helpless at every stage and many a time I felt that I am going to fail to meet the target date. I prayed one day to Sai Baba fervently and sought his blessings to help me tide over the difficulties and make the passage smooth. I also promised him that I would write my experience in Sai Vichar if the obstacles were removed. While the task is still incomplete but there has been change since I prayed and things are moving much faster than before. With this momentum I am sure Sai will help me in meeting the target date. I sincerely wish to use this forum to convey my heartfelt gratitude to him. Om Sai Ram.

Padmavathi
I have had countless miracles blessed by lord Sai in my life. Don't know which one to share with devotees. The latest ones are approval of my green card, after a long and tedious journey of almost 6 years Sai blessed me and my husband with the green card. By Sai's grace my pregnancy is going smoothly and now I am 32 weeks pregnant. My husband's psychological mood swings and aggressiveness are in control and he is taking his medicine regularly now. Looking back, just one year ago my life was under so much distress, we were on the verge of divorce - but the strong belief on Sadguru Sai only helped me to come out of all these problems. My husband stopped raising his hand on me for no reason; I am not sitting in the corner of my house anymore after a long and exhausting day of office work and housework. Now I can sit with him and talk. Without Sai I know for sure, all these things should not have happened in my life. I am incredibly thankful to Shri Sai. Please be with me Sai for the rest of the pregnancy and help me to deliver the baby safely. I request all Sai devotees to keep Shradda and Saburi and Lord Sai only knows what is best for us and Shri Sai never let us down. Humble pranams on your lotus feet Sai, Bow to Shri Sai - Peace to all!

Baba, I promised to You that I will write my experience about Your blessings on my family. Sainath, I remember how my bhabhi was pregnant and doctors had said that 99 percent she will have an operation. Baba, how I prayed to You and wished it to be a normal delivery. Even just before the delivery we were not sure what would happen. That evening my mother and bhabhi went to Your temple with tears in their eyes, praying for a safe and normal delivery and the next morning, my bhabhi gave birht to a baby boy. It was a normal delievery. it just took around 10 seconds. Sainath, You have been with me and my family and forever and answered our prayers. Thank you Baba, we have no one else except You to look upto in times of need.



Shweta
Thank you Sai Baba for giving me the job on Thursday. As per my promise I am submitting my article. Please Sai Baba help me and my husband to perform efficiently in our new jobs and please make our living smooth in Australia. Please bless us, our family members and everybody on this earth to live a successful life and to have full faith in You. Jai Sai Ram

Maheswari
Only today morning did I write that my lost luggage be found, since we tried to track it for two days, I just now got the news that my luggage has been found and will be coming home by tomorrow. Baba, you have tested my disowning of material things and I think I got pass marks, since I was longing for the material things. But once I consoled myself that come what may I won't worry over the things I lost but will be grateful for You to have blessed me a safe trip abroad. Thanks Baba for clearing my mind and taking me to the next level in spirituality.

Madhavi
I am from a middle class family. When I wrote my MCACET, I first got a seat in University College in Vishakapatnam. My family could not afford that so my mother who is a very strong believer in God and my guiding force in studies and career was praying hard for Sai Baba to lead us in the right way. Baba blessed us and in the next week I went for interview in Kakatiya Uinversity, which was in my town Warangal, and I got a seat in KU campus. If not for that blessing I would not have done my MCA. Thank You Baba.

I was really worried about my funding for my MBA studies but finally received a GA position at my chosen University. In between, I had lost total faith on Baba, and had stopped reading Satcharita. I am really sorry to have lost faith, and it is my ardent request to all devotees never to lose faith on Baba. Troubles are here only to test our faith.

Ram
I was not feeling well Monday afternoon in the office. I was sitting in my cube but I was not able to do anything because my body was aching and I felt slight fever. I prayed to Baba and asked him to make me feel better by next day morning and promised that I will write my experience in Sai Vichaar. I came home after that and slept that night. When I woke up next day morning I was feeling lot better. Baba always protects his devotees as he promises.

Usha
With the blessings of Shirdi Sairam my daughter got a job. Thank you Sairam.

Nainesh
We had decided to go out to pick up some diner. We had two cars in our driveway. On one side of the driveway we also have a basketball hoop. We usually take my wife's car, which is the furthest from the hoop. However for some reason (Sai's prompting) we took that day the car closer to the hoop. On our return to home, there was a strong wind, rain and lightning that started and by the time we got home, the hoop had fallen down. If we had not taken the car we took, it would have had to lot of damage from the hoop that fell across the driveway. This is nothing but Sai saving his devotees from any kind of damage or set backs.

Jyothirmayi
Last November we had been to Shirdi. My sister-in-law and her mother-in-law gave me some money to put in the "hundi" at Shirdi. As our trip was very short and hectic, I completely forgot about it. On our way back, it suddenly struck me that I had forgotten to put the money at Shirdi and mentally I offered an apology to Sai Baba. No sooner did this thought cross my mind, the driver of our vehicle got a call from his friend saying they were making a door for the Shirdi temple and he wanted the driver to stop by and see the door on the way. We stopped by on our way back to see the door and saw the life-size photo of Saibaba. Annadanam(feeding the hungry) was also being organized there. Not only could I send the money through the team who were on their way to Shirdi, I also had the fortune of taking part in the annadaan. Ever since then, my belief in Sai Baba has been tremendous.

Prasanthi
Thank you Baba for solving all my problems, one by one. Because of You, my fiancee got a good job and he joined the company today(Thursday). Please bless him in performing all his duties efficiently. Please Baba, help me also in finding a suitable job.

NandKishore
It was last year a day before Dhanteras, I was having Rs. 500 with me and was wondering how will I celebrate Diwali this year, no scope of resources. I was sitting in my cabin in the office and thinking on the subject, all of a sudden my colleague came to my room and asked permission to leave because he wanted to visit Shirdi. I said fine and gave him Rs. 100 to be offered to Saibaba as dakshina. After a while I received a call from my Managing Director asking me to see him in the evening. I met the director in the evening and to my surprise he handed over a packet, which had loads of money in that and said, "go celebrate this Diwali with your family". My joy knew no bounds and I thanked Sai Baba profusely for giving me what I did not expect.

On Thursday, November 29th, 2007 I went to Sai Baba temple in Mylapore. I entered the temple at 10.30 am and at 10.40am when I wanted to sponsor for Annadaan, I found my purse missing. Mandir is flooded with people on all days, especially on Thursdays, it is packed. I was sure at 10.30, I had my purse in my handbag, because my husband gave me money for the sponsorship. I had kept the money in my purse and put it inside the bag. It was our wedding anniversary and I was terribly upset, to be very honest, I could not pray sincerely that day. I had all my cards in the purse. Fortunately, there were a couple of policemen in the Mandir, and I lodged a complaint immediately with them and blocked my cards by calling the banks from the Mandir itself. I returned home that day with a heavy heart and prayed to Saima to get back my purse with the cards, because my purse had all the cards like medical, pan, etc. Days elapsed, months elapsed. Suddenly on 22nd March 2008, I got a call on my cell from a gentleman that he had found my purse on the road. While he was standing in the bus stand, he saw my purse on the road, he picked it up and found a few cards along with my business card. He called me immediately the moment he saw my business card. He said in a couple of hours, he will let me know as to where I should go and pick up the purse. I was skeptical and could not believe at the first instance. That gentleman gave his contact information to me, so I called my husband who was away, to get in touch with that gentleman to collect the purse. In the evening when my husband was returning from office, he had been to that gentleman?s house to collect the purse. My husband was dumb founded to receive the purse along with Sai?s prasad. That gentleman had been to Shirdi and just returned the previous day. He had given a couple of rare photographs of Sai and udi along with the purse. We were spellbound.

Aradhna
This story started in December, every December we went to Shirdi to celebrate the New Year with Saibaba. With Sai kripa, I really got a good job with the good salary but unfortunately I was not selected in the field where I have interest. I worked in that field for 9 months and I love my company so much that I don't want to leave that. I spoke with my manger to put me in the field I like and used to cry in front of her that I cannot work in this field where I am. She always gave me fake promises that she will definitely do something for me. Finally she told me to wait till November and she promised me to promote me that department. As November came I did not see any effort from her side. In starting of December I prayed in front of Saibaba with tears in my eyes telling Him that He has given me a good job but what was the use of that job if I am not happy there, I was in that department from last 9 months but cannot be there any more, and asked Baba to do some miracle for me or take me out from this tension or situation. Finally after the first week of December, my manager called me and said that she is promoting me to the department where I want to go. I had a ticket booked on December 28th 2007 for Shirdi and on 26th December I was thinking that this time when I went to Shirdi I will pray to Baba that when I come back from Shirdi in January 2008 my manger should promote me to carrier level and on 27th December 2007, I got another miracle that she has promoted me again. I am working in that department with the Carrier level and Baba is helping me every month in achieving my target. Just want to say Baba be with me always I cannot do anything with You!

Sirisha
Last Saturday, I went to a birthday party with my family and on our way back home we stopped by a retail store to meet a family friend. We stayed there for over an hour and half while they were looking at some appliances to buy. After that we started from there to our home and after more than 40 minutes of drive, I realized I lost my handbag which had all my credit cards, gift cards and checks and my license. It had been more than 2 and a half hours since I left the store. I was very tensed and prayed to Baba while my husband called up the family friend to check with the store manager. Just then, someone turned the handbag to the manager and everything was intact in the bag. It is very surprising as the store was crowded with people buying lawn and patio furniture and also it happens to be in a busy mall on a weekend. It would have been a disaster if not for Baba's leela

We have been through a lot in last few months. Peace and happiness were nowhere near to us. With my strong faith, we kept on praying to Baba and our saburi is rewarded. All our tensions were cleared in a giff and we are so happy now. Please keep faith on Baba. All your prayers will be answered. May lord give peace and happiness to all.

Laxmi
Om Sai Ram! Thank you so much. Today I had doctor appointment and everything went well. Sairam, thank so much for being with me. Baba please help my mother and my brother. Please erase their misunderstandings.

Srilatha
I had been going through several bad times. In between, my work at office was very disappointing and I visited Baba's temple on Thursday, got my ID and my finger ring (with Baba's face on it) consecrated by the touch of Baba's feet. From the next day, the work at office started improving and within one week, my position and work were properly recognized at my office. Baba, kindly shower Your grace on us this way all the time. Please draw me to Shirdi atleast once. Bow to Shri Sai. Peace be to all.

Sita
Two weeks back I was very worried regarding health of my in-law, but due to Baba's blessing everything is fine. Baba, we need Your blessing. Please bless our family

Sai devotee
Thank you Baba for helping me go through a smooth delivery and blessing us with a beautiful baby girl. I felt Your presence throughout the time I was at the hospital. I got very scared when my incision opened up due to the infection and You helped me recover from that as well. Please always be with us, bless us and forgive us.

Thirupurasundari
Thank you so much for blessing my son with an internship offer. Please guide him in the right direction and help him come to a correct decision.

Anish
From long back I had severe problem with my health and studies and was not able to do well but one day my brother-in-law told me the greatness of Sai Baba. Soon after as I started praying to Baba my health got better and recovered. Not only that I was blessed with good marks but also got placed in one of the best University in Japan. This all happened with the help of Baba. He is really great .Thank you very much Baba.

Hemangi
What should I speak of the experience of Baba's blessing. I had lots of problems few months back. Every Thrusday I used to go to Sai Baba temple and prayed to Baba to guide me in life. One Thrusday an old lady came to me when I was wearing my sandals outside the temple and said to have "Shraddha and Saburi". I was completely blank and after sometime I started looking for the same lady but could not find her. Later I prayed to Baba and said I will have "Shraddha and Saburi", and things started changing slowly and steadily in my life. Today when I look ahead about my life I don't see any problem. My husband got a promotion too. My financial status has started improving slowly.

Radhika
Thank You soo much Sainath for making me complete my saptah of Sai Satcharita and answering my prayers. Devotees keep all your problems before Sainath's lotus feet and He will help you sail smoothly. I had prayed to Sainath to send me a good driver as my husband could not travel otherwise or walk too much. I began reading Sai Satcharita and on the last day of completing a person arrived at the door and said he is a driver sent by someone he does not know. We have appointed him. Sai thank you so much. Please bless him and his family. His wife recently had a by pass surgery done. Koti pranams to you Sainath.

Dwarkamai you are our Masidi ayi.....................

DWARAKA MAYI
(Baba's Promises)

DWARAKA MAYI of ours is this
place where you are sitting. This

Wards off all dangers and
anxieties from her children

And highly merciful is this
' Masidi Ayi'; Those who seek

Refuge in her will never be harmed.
If they are in danger, she will save them.

As soon as one climbs the steps
of this mosque, sufferings due to

Karma are at an end and joy begins,
That Fakir (God) relieves all your troubles,

As soon as anyone enters this DWARAKA MAYI,
his goal (object) is achieved.

Masidi Ayi, that is, DWARAKA MAI, is SAI
(This is the meaning of'Dwaraka Mai')

As the 'Dwaraka Mayi' of Ranchhod (Krishna)
is here (Shirdi),
You need not go far out to see Dwaraka,
If you place entire faith

In mother 'Masidi Ayi', all your troubles
will be over and you attain bliss.

‘He who loves Him whole heartedly, gets response from Him at any time, at any place.’

I cannot clearly remember how and when I got a very small clay idol of my beloved Sai Baba. At that time I knew nothing about Him and placed Him in a showcase. Today, I realize, the moment he stepped into my house was surely the most auspicious moment of my life.

In the year 1998, Sonia, a very close fiend of my daughter gave us a photo of Baba and the holy book ‘Sri Sai Satcharitra’. Since then we are showered by His endless kindness and blessings. I have experienced many incidents that cannot be explained by practical aspects. From those precious experiences, one, I think is unbelievable.

A relative of mine was preparing to go to Bombay. As I came to know, I insisted that she go to Shirdi. I did not know how much she believes Baba. I gave her an idol of Baba and used to talk about Him and His kindness when she was in distress. The day she set out for Bombay, I felt very low.

I have a long cherished desire to go to Shirdi. I don’t know when He will allow me to bow my head down at His Holy Lotus Feet. I felt very low and wept a lot. The next day I found a saffron coloured multi-petalled chin rose has bloomed. It was the first flower of that tiny plant. The flower was exceptionally big and mesmerized me with its brightness. I plucked it and placed it on Baba’s Lotus Feet in my pooja room. It was 9 o’clock in the morning.

All day I was very busy. At about 10 o’clock at night I suddenly noticed that the flower was still as fresh as it was when I plucked it in the morning. It was paced in the dry surface at Baba’s Feet and it got the heat of the candle that I lit under the shelf in the morning and evening. It haunts me a lot. It is not possible for a tender flower to be fresh for such a long time.

I have a habit that when I wake up in the morning, I first open the door of the pooja room and give my pranam to Baba. As I opened the door I was astonished. The flower was just as fresh as it was yesterday morning. Tears came to my eyes. In my conscience as if I heard – “I am with you; My abode is in your heart and I am within you.” I was thrilled.

That day also the flower looked fresh. The next day at about 9 o’clock that is after 48 hours, the petals of the flower started drying up. Later I went to the Sai Baba’s temple where the pujariji insisted I buy an audio CD as I was asking him for another one. I came back home with that audio CD which pujariji persuaded me to buy. It was a VCD. The songs were picturised inside the Shirdi Mandir and the surrounding areas of the mandir. I was spell bound.

I asked my relative to bring Udi, Prasad and photo of Baba. She came back to Kolkata and left her bag over there in Bombay. But unexpectedly I got Udi, Prasad and photo of Baba from another person who also went to Shirdi at the same time.

As I am now unable to go to Shirdi, my generous Baba has accepted my pooja and darshan this way. Deep in my heart I consider all these incidents as His kindness. He is omniscient – He is everywhere, I realize. He surely sees all that we feel – all that we desire.

Uncanny are the ways in which Baba shows His beneficence to His devotees. In a sequel to the incident I had recounted recently in Sai Vichaar after my visit to Shirdi for Ramanavami celebrations there, Baba answered the prayers of my office colleague who also joined me from Hyderabad. Baba has helped him with a much awaited job in LIC. He was assiduously making efforts to join LIC after both his parents died while in service with LIC 4 years ago. Both my colleague and I have visited Shirdi 3 times since last August. I advised him to have absolute faith in Baba and sincerely pray for his recruitment in LIC. After 4 years of disappointment and anxiety, his prayers were rewarded, after he turned to Baba.

Shree
Recently, I had visited a restaurant and after paying the bill, I got distracted by my son and left my purse in the restaurant. This happened around noon. I had come back to my house, did my usual chores. I never realized that I lost my purse. And around 9:00 pm at night somebody rang the bell. I opened and there was this person standing with my purse and I was shocked. He was the restaurant manager and told me that they found the way to my house from my driver's license and handed over the purse. I was shocked for a little while. I always carry Sri Saibaba's picture in my purse and I believe it is only Baba who helped me that day. I thanked the restaurant manager and prayed to Baba to shower his blessings on them. There are many instances in my life where I have felt Baba's presence. One other incident was when my husband had to take an exam for his professional license and he took it on a Saturday and after the exam was over, he got a score, which was just one point below the passing score. We were shocked and my husband was so depressed. It was totally unexpected and so on Monday he called the exam board about rescheduling. To our astonishment, the person at the board reviewed my husband's information and said that there was a mistake in the scoring in the exam and my husband had actually scored a high score of 92. All this is Baba's grace. When difficulties strike, I hold on to Baba's advice Faith and Patience. He never leaves you. Just hold on to his hand and walk through the journey of life. Everything will be clear.

Neha
I really wanted to go to Shirdi since a long time. And I had a book wherein you ask any question with pure heart and think of a number and then you look for an answer in front of that particular number in the book. I looked for an answer in the book and the answer said, "Come to Shirdi and all your prayers shall be answered." Now I am the only believer of Baba in my family so I thought how would I go to Shirdi!!! To my surprise right after 2 days, one of my very close aunts calls me and asks me to make a plan to Shirdi. My happiness knew no bounds and thus started the plan of going to Shirdi. I have a very strong faith in Baba and I know that Baba can only take me out of the problem I am currently facing. So I was really excited to go...Then after a few days my mother also made a plan to go to Shirdi with me and my aunt and uncle. We took darshan of Baba on 3rd April 2008. As I left for Shirdi, I was just praying to Baba that after your darshan Baba, I really hope that my problem is solved and that I get to see Baba very closely and nicely. Such a coincidence it was, that my plan to go to Shirdi and my boyfriend's plan to go to Shirdi was made on the same dates, we went by the same flight and train, and had gone at the same time to take darshan of baba - 5:00 am in the morning for kakad aarti. My problem also was that Baba helps me in convincing my parents to say yes for our marriage. It was hard to control the smile on my face as soon as I saw Baba in the mandir. It was like Baba is looking at me and smiling.

continued....
As I was singing Om Jai Jagdish, kakad aarti with the crowd, my mother starting feeling nauseated and she sat down. My mind was now on my mother also to see if she was fine. Slowly her health started to worsen and I didn't know what to do. I took her at the back but from there I could not see Baba properly. I was praying inside that something happens and I get back to the front to see Baba. Then my mother said that she needs to go out to freshen a little. Obviously, I could not refuse her, so I went with her also. I got water for her as well. When I came back to the temple, I was made to stand at the back of the rows and now I was not at all able to see Baba. So tears started falling from my eyes and I told Baba that I had so much in mind when I came to see you and I was hoping for a miracle but here I cant see u only. The moment I started crying and I prayed, a lady right in front of me told me to go in the front and try to convince the security people to let u have the darshan of Baba. They said they'd look after my mother. So I went ahead and asked the security person to please let me go in the front. Then finally, he made me sit in the center of the two rows where generally the VVIP's or the pandits or the trustees sit. I could not have had a better darshan than this. With no one in front of my eyes, I saw Baba's abhishek. I really thank my Baba for listening to me. And the very next day my uncle called me and told me that he will help me in every way he can to convince my parents. So I got my wishes, a wonderful darshan and a step ahead to solve my problem.

A poor man named Laxmanrao Govindrao Munge lived in Nashik. He used to sit in the threshold of Nashik court. He did some documentation work and at the end of the day he earned only one rupee or one and half rupee.

In those days, for a girl to be given in marriage, only boy’s qualification, salary, etc was not considered by her family. The boy may be poor, but his family, family’s behaviour with others and above all maternal uncle’s family had to be good. Laxmanrao’s maternal uncle lived in Rahata village. Due to his maternal uncle’s good family background and high position, Laxmanrao’s marriage was fixed in a good family. Now the question was of money for the expenses of his marriage. He had to compulsorily give gold ornaments and the whole expense of his marriage was to be borne single handed. Moreover in those days a man was valued by his word of mouth. If a man had promised to give something in social functions like marriage or similar occasions, those words could not be taken back. It would be better to consume poison rather than turn back from one’s words.

Laxmanrao was worried about the expenses. Like a person has hope on a single star in a dark night, so Laxmanrao had hope from his uncle. He was confident that his uncle would help him in monetary terms. Thinking likewise, he started to Rahata to his uncle’s place from Nashik. In between, he came to Shirdi, Sai Baba’s holy land.

Laxmanrao came to Sai Baba’s Dwarkamai and fell at His feet. Sai Baba gave him two mangoes to eat. The mangoes were incredibly sweet in taste. Then Laxmanrao sat massaging Sai Baba’s feet. Sai Baba started talking with him and said, “Whatever is written in your fate, you are bound to get. Always have a feeling of satisfaction in your heart and be happy with whatever you have. Without God’s order, even a leaf cannot move. So don’t worry and always try to be simple, honest and truthful. I am independent and have independent thoughts, is said by many people, but this is not true. God is the only Doer, we are dependent on Him, my son! No one is relative of anyone. Relatives are only for show off, but no one come to help you in critical situations. If you want one-two thousand rupees, I can give you. Laxmanrao failed to understand what Sai Baba wanted to say. He then left for Rahata to his uncle’s place. His uncle refused to help him. Now Laxmanrao was reminded of Sai Baba’s words that, “No one is relative of anyone. Relations and relatives are only for show off. If you want I can give you money. Walking out of Rahata village, he further thought, “Everyday Sai Baba distributes all the money received as dakshina and next day He becomes a poor Fakir. Then how can He give me such a big amount of money?” But now he started praying to Sai Baba mentally, “Oh God, Sainath! You are omnipotent. I don’t have that much courage to understand your sweet words. I am not very intelligent and my devotion to You is also less than that. Oh God! Bless me. You have promised me to give one-two thousand rupees, but I cannot understand the exact meaning of your words”. Now he reached to a place named Sinnor.

There was a big business of cigarettes and tobacco of Gujarati traders in Sinnor and Laxmanrao was initially introduced to a Gujarati Trader. After a couple of meetings, the trader generated trust on Laxmanrao. So he gave Laxmanrao 30 Tolas (a tola means 10 gram of gold), a nose ring, which is considered to be very important in Marathi Tradition and a diamond studded pair anklets. In this way Sai Baba arranged money for the expenses of Laxmanrao’s marriage being a poor Fakir. Is it not Sai Baba's Leela He Laxmanrao met the Gujarati trader and in turn was helped by a stranger. Thus by Sai Baba’s grace, Laxmanrao’s marriage went off without any trouble and he was ever grateful to Sai Baba.

Once a gentleman came for Baba’s darshan from Thane District. Baba said to him, “You continue your worship of Lord Hanumanji”. Why Baba gave such an advice, the gentleman failed to understand. When he went to Wada, people there asked him, “Do you worship Lord Hanumanji daily?” at that point he was reminded and said, “Yes, there is a Panchmukhi Hanuman Temple in front of my house and I do not eat anything without going to the temple and worshipping Lord Hanuman.” Thus Baba made his many years worship firm.

Baba did not have His independent cult or tradition. Baba did not ask anybody t leave their present worship and worship Him only. But He showed the right path to the one who forgets it again.

HOW BABA INSPIRED SHRI M. K. RAJAGOPALACHARY TO BUILD BABA'S MANDIR AT NELLORE (A.P)
Doctor M. K. Rajagopalachari of Nellore had got a photo and UDI of Shri Sai Baba, Shirdi, through Rao Saheb Chandu Subbaiah Setty after his return from Shirdi visit, as he was his family doctor. He put the photo on the top of his Almyrah in his dispensary in Rajaji Street , Nellore without evincing much interest and in a most casual way. After some days, the doctor had a dream one night. A tall Fakir in long torn gown walked up to him and showed some wounds and eruptions on his skin below his two knees and asked him to dress up his wounds. Seeing the Fakir, the doctor was wonder struck with his extraordi­nary appearance, graceful and kind personality and the doctor immediately dressed up His wounds in his own hands with great care and interest. Then the Fakir said that he was very much relieved of the pain and blessed him and left. After two or three days of this incident while the doctor cleaning the dust and debris on the Almyrahs he happened to look at the Baba's photo and that the portions down below Baba's knee was eaten away by white ants and this condition reminded the doctor of the incident in his dream. The doctor came to know that the Fakir who blessed him in his dream was no other than Shri Sai Baba Shirdi and his eager grew more to know about Baba. In 1939, he invi­ted his Holiness B. V. Narasimhaswamy to Nellore . The Swamiji gave lectures about the life and leelas of Shri Sai Baba. In October, 1940, the doctor made a trip to Shirdi. He met His Holiness Shri B. V. Narasimhaswamy and Shri Kesavaiah Swamiji. The doctor returned from Shirdi with a firm determination to build a regular mandir immediately after his return to Nellore . Accordingly with his tireless effort along with other Sai devotees a pucka mandir of Shri Sai Baba Shirdi was erected at Nellore with a Mandali by name "The Nellore Shri Sai Baba Baktha Mandali"   for its   maintenance.

HOW BABA SAVED THE SISTER OF SHRI BHIKAJI MOHEDJI
A servant drawing a monthly salary of Rs. 36/- Bhikaji Mohedji has a sister Chhaboo. She had been ill for about 4 months. On 5-12-1951, her illness took a critical turn, so he was very anxious to get for her the benefit of a good doctor's advice and medicine, but within the meager salary, it was not at all possible for him to get there. Having sighs upon sighs, bemoaning his inability he carried on his office duties, chanting Sai Baba's name when suddenly there came in a   doctor for some enquiry. Though Bhikaji could not recognise him, through Sai's grace the doctor himself reminded Bhikaji of his previous connection with  him.     So Bhikaji narrated to him the difficulty and requested him to examine her and prescribed the necessary medicines. The doctor readily complied with Bhikaji’s request. Bhikaji thus got over his worries and felt assured that Baba was ever ready to shower His grace ever on a poor man like himself.

BABA MADE SHRI KAKASAHEB DIXIT TO ATTEND THE DINNER PARTY ARRANGED BY SHRI KRISHNA RAO NARAYAN    PARULKAR HARDA AND SATISFIED HIM
Shri Krishna Rao Narayan Parulkar, Honorary Magistrate of Harda has been celebrating "Shri Datta Festival” for several years usually falling in December and feeding one hundred Brahmins on that occasion and whenever for some reason or other he was not able to do so in a year, he would feed double the usual number i. e. two hundred brahmin in the next year. As per that self imposed rule, he was to feed two hundred brahmins in respect of that celebration in the year 1925. One Saturday was fixed for dinner, only when five days were left to it, that is on Monday. On Tuesday when Parulkar was merged in meditation as per his   daily routine, he heard a voice saying,"If you desire that on the day you are feeding the brahmins, I should come and dine with them, you call Sri Dixit from   Bombay .” Parulkar however thought to himself whether it was proper for him to request Shri Dixit to come such a long distance simply for taking dinner while he was in the midst of such conflict of thoughts, he again heard the voice, "Why did you puzzle? Write to Dixit, feed him with all the other brahmins and when you have done so, know it for certain that I joined the party taking dinner at yours.”    So Parulkar wrote to Shri Dixit on Wednesday requesting him to attend the dinner on Saturday. Failing to hear from Shri Dixit all prepa­rations were made for serving the dinner on Saturday, Parulkar with tearful eyes requested Baba to set matters right and then taking his bath, so soon as he started doing his midday routine prayers, he got a telegram from Shri Dixit informing him that he and Madhavrao Deshpande were on the way to Harda. All were glad­dened to receive the news. They all went to the sta­tion to receive them, accorded them a hearty welcome and gave them a sumptuous feast in the company of the two hundred brahmins. Sri Parulkar was overjoyed and he now felt that Baba is still there to satisfy all the Godly craving of his heart.

BABA SATISFIED THE WISHES OF SMT. MANI SAHUKAR BY GIVING MEDICINE FOR HER SUFFERINGS IN HER THROAT
Smt Mani Sahukar author of the book Saint of Shirdi about the year 1950 started suffering from the peculiar ailment of the throat. She was a sincere student of vocal Hindustani classical music. Owing to the sufferings in the throat she was not able to sing continuously for ten minutes. She consulted many doctors but in vain. After six months, she came to Shirdi and stood before the Samadhi of Shri Sai Baba, her heart and eyes suddenly wetted with tears. She came out of the Samadhi Mandir and went over to visit a friend. After discussion with her friend, she came to her room behind the Gurusthan at about 7-30 P.M. In order to make herself comfortable, she started removing her sari from her left shoulder. As she removed, she heard something rustling in the sari and a small packet about 2 inches long made up in white paper fell from her sari to the ground. She was perplexed for a mo­ment and looked around her wondering what had happened. There was no one. She picked and unfolded it. To her amazement in contained six or seven tiny white tablets which may commonly used in homeopathy. When she realised the significance of this, she wrapped her sari again and went to her friend with the tablets. Her friend told her, "You understand, don't you know that this is Baba's Prasad. What are you going to do with it?” She replied that she will take all these tablets.
So saying she put all these tablets in her mouth. When she returned home from Shirdi, she found that she should sing without any hindrance and all the conges­tion in her throat entirely disappeared. Her heart over­flowed gratitude to Baba.

In Madhya Pradesh, there is a big town named Indore. There is a big temple of Raja Vikramaditya’s deity Goddess Harishiddhi. In the year 1915, there lived a Fakir named Rumalwala Baba besides the temple. He was called a Mast Fakir, he never used to beg, and he was in meditation of Sai Baba for 24 hours. Although there was no need to go to Shirdi for Baba’s darshan, he used to go to Shirdi many times to be engrossed in Baba.
In the year 1915, in the month of May on Friday, he visited Shirdi for Sai Baba’s darshan. he was in Sai Baba’s meditation in Dwarkamai. At that time a photographer came and captured Baba’s photo (adjoining photograph) and ran away with the camera. Baba abused him a lot for his act. On the third day i.e. Sunday, that photographer came and gifted the photograph to Sai Baba in the presence of Rumalwala Baba. At that time Prof. Ganpatrao Narke, son-in-law of Shri Bapu Saheb Buti, was seated before baba to take about his job. Baba gave the photograph to him and said, “Take this! The person who has the photograph, his calamities would vanish ( Beda Paar Ho Gayega).
Rumalwala Baba thought that how nice would be of Baba, if he had given me such a incomparable photograph. After that people sang Madhyayan Arti, stotras, Baba gave Udi to all and ordered everybody to go and have their lunch.

Like a bird is not happy without wings, so is snake without a pearl, an elephant is not happy without trunk, so Rumalwala Baba was unhappy without the photograph. He went to Balabhau’s lodge to eat, but could not even eat a morsel. Some how he finished off his lunch and got up to give Balabhau eight annas for the lunch. Then along with the money the photograph also came out from his pocket. He became so happy and emotional that he started dancing and jumping. He said to everyone, “See I got Baba’s divine photograph, see i got Baba’s divine photograph. Baba had said whosoever preserves this photograph, his calamities would vanish”. By getting Baba’s divine photograph, there was no bound to happiness of Rumalwala Baba, he was very excited, his eyes overflowed with tears, he kept the photo nearby his heart and started embracing it again and again. After some days, Rumalwala came back to Indore, he kept the photograph in a recess of a wall.

Some years later, a devotee named Shri Pathakji started coming to Rumalwala Baba. One day took the photograph in his hands. Seeing this Rumalwala Baba, became very angry and said, “You have teased me by taking the photograph in your hands. Now don’t keep it here. You take the photograph and keep it with you. Whosoever will have this photograph, preserve it, worship it, light lamp and incense stick before it, their calamities would vanish. In this way the divine photograph of Baba passed away from Rumalwala Baba to Shri Pathakji.

A Sai Baba devotee named Gajananrao Krishnarao Nirakhe, but people used to call him Bapu Saheb, only for offering service visited frequently Shirdi. He lived in Gandhinagar. After getting the divine photograph of Sai Baba Shri Pathakji, he joined the team of Bapu Saheb for visiting Shirdi. Seeing the utmost devotion to Sai Baba, Shri Pathakji sent that divine photograph to Bapu Saheb through another devotee of Sai Baba named Shri Upasani. He danced and jumped with joy after getting the photo. He got the photograph framed and tied it in his neck. Devotees of Indore built a temple of Sai Baba. The idol of Sai Baba was duly installed by Bapu Saheb.
In the year 1987, on 10th and 11th October, in a huge hall of Shreyas School, Baroda, Akhil Bhartiya Sai Sammilan was held. Late Shri Maganlal Jermanwala, author of Sai Sarovar Book was honoured. Indore’s Bapu Saheb was also present on the occasion. He had that divine photograph of Sai Baba which He had Himself given tied in his neck. Sai Baba then inspired Bapu Saheb to give the photograph to Sai Sarovar.

1.         BABA PROVED HIMSELF THAT THERE WERE NO SISHYAS NO RELATIVES, NO INCARNATIONS NO SUCCESSORS AND NO HEREDITARY TO HIM
Shri Sai Baba, Shirdi took His Mahasamadhi on 15-10-1918. After His Mahasamadhi, Baba's Samadhi was not looked after in a fit manner upto 1922. Having seen the maintenance of Baba's Samadhi by the villa­gers, Shri Kakasaheb Dixit came to Shirdi, settled an office with a managing committee under Public Trust Act with the approval of the District Court, Ahmednagar. At that time, Shri Abdul Baba was performing Abhishek to Baba's Samadhi and the Maha Naivedyam food was given to him and he was allowed to take his residence in the room situated in the left side of the Samadhi Mandir. Shri Abdul Baba was the then only local leading devotee of Baba. He was then having about four or five thousand rupees of Baba's dakshina amount with him offered by Baba's devotees. Some well wishers of him induced him that he was the legal heir to Baba and that the formation of the Trust was against justice. Thereby Abdul Baba filed a suit stating that he was the legal heir to Baba, against the Trust Body in the District Court, Ahmednagar. The bellowed District Court by the grace of Baba passed orders that Abdul Baba has no connection of the maintenance of the Sansthan of Shri Sai Baba, Shirdi and that there was no heir or successor to Shri Sai Baba, Shirdi. On the strength of this order the Maha Naivedyam food given to him was stopped by the Sansthan and he was made to vacate his room in Baba's Samadhi Mandir. As Baba said, that He would be with the same power for one thousand years and looking after the welfare of His devotees, He himself proved that there were no Sishyas, no relatives, no hereditary, no successor, no rebirth and no reincarnation to Him.

HOW SHRI MUKTHARAM, A STAUNCH DEVOTEE OF BASA FARED WHEN HE WANTED TO OCCUPY BABA'S GADI
Shri Muktharam was a staunch devotee of Baba. Baba gave a Kupni to him. He lived in Dixit Wada by keeping a Dhuni. After some days of Baba's Samadhi, he came and sat in Baba's Gadi in Dwarakamayee. As soon as he sat in Baba's Gadi against the wishes of the villagers he began to vomit blood and he was taken to his residence in the Dixit Wada. The devotees decided to take him to Kopargaon Hospital . Before the decision was taken with whom he was to be sent to Kopargaon, he died in Dixit Wada itself. His Samadhi is in Lendi Baug. This incident also goes to show that Baba was not willing to allow anybody to occupy His Gadi.


BABA PROVED THAT THIS WAS NO REBIRTH TO HIM
When Baba was in flesh and blood He told that I would take rebirth. Having ground on this word of Baba, people in some places pose that they were Sai and their words were Sai's words. In 1943 a boy in Amravati was directing people that he was Sai Himself and that he earned a lot of money and began to utilize for himself. Then the people realised his deceit and found that there was not even a bit of Sai's cult in him and ignored him afterwards.
Secondly, another person near Madras began to tell people's aim in their mind for the present and the past (Mind reading) and began to earn in Sai's name due to his greediness. Once he told to the people "why are you people wandering for the dead Sai Baba. I am with life here". On hearing these words from him, people determined that he was not the rebirth of Sai Baba as Baba Himself told that "Saints never die".

HOW BABA HADE MADHAVRAO DEHSPANDE (SHAMA) TO HAND OVER HIS PADUKAS, PHOTOS ETC. TO BABA'S SANSTHAN WHICH HE KEPT IN HIS HOUSE AFTER BABA'S MAHASAMADHI
After Baba's Mahasarradhi, Madhava Rao Deshpande alias Shama an intimate local devotee of Baba was managing the Dixit Wada. He was looking after the welfare of the devotees and resided in Dixit Wada itself. After the formation of Baba's Sansthan Committee the Committee demanded agreement (Baada Chitti in Marathi) from him for his residence in Dixit Wada. Madhava Rao first refused. But later, Shri S. B. Dhumal and Shri B. V. Dec intervened and Madhava Rao gave the agreement. After some days, the committee vacated Madhava Rao from his residence in Dixit Wada. At the time of vacating, he had taken away Baba's silver Padukas, Baba's Photos etc. to his house from Dixit Wada. After knowing this, the committee asked Madhava Rao to hand over the above articles of Baba to the Sansthan. He refused first. But Shri S. B, Dhumal went to his house with a big procession of bhajan, band etc. On seeing this procession Madhava Rao handed over all the above articles of Baba to Shri S. B. Dhumal. These Baba's Padukas were placed before Baba's Photo in Dwarakamayee wherein lakhs of devotees are taking darshan of the above Baba's Padu­kas now.
By reading these items (I) to (4) it is clear, evident and proved beyond all reasonable doubts by the grace of Baba that there were no sishyas, no hereditary, no relatives, no successor, no rebirth and no reincarnation to Him. Shri Sai Baba, Shirdi from His Mahasamadhi till date and even upto the year 2918 as was told by Him, He Himself is affecting the welfare of His devo­tees. Now let us read how Baba was effecting and is now affecting the welfare of His devotees.

BABA   SAVED   SHRI G. B. MANKAR AND HIS MEN FROM THE JAWS OF DEATH
In his letter, Shri G. B. Mankar has stated to Shri Tarkhad in 1923 during his work in his work field, it has to lift a 375 horse power diesel engine (weight 12 tons) in a fly crane. As the fly crane was not so strong to bear the weight of the engine, a cracking sound came from the crane and all were afraid. Then Shri Mankar cried out “Sai Baba” and invoked His help. After his utterance all of a sudden smell of rose flowers and agarbattis spread over the field and Baba has appeared on the spot and saved all the people from the jaws of death. Mankar saw baba and again cried out "Baba".
All others meant that “Kaka” of Mankar came there. But Mankar has cleared their doubt and that Shri Sai Baba, Shirdi had came to the spot and saved them from the jaws of death. Is this incident does not show that Baba is living and lending His helping hand to His de­votees as and when they are in trouble ?

BABA SAVED SHRI R. MOREWALA FROM FALLING DOWN FROM THE TRAIN
Shri R. Morewala Solicitor of Bombay was not so much religious minded. But he has got faith in Baba. In 1953 he was going to Thana by a train. The train was over crowded and hence he could not get into the train and was standing at the door. Then the train moved. Owing to the pushing of the crowd from inside the train, he fell down from the door and while falling down, he uttered the name of Shri Sai Baba. The chain was pulled out by one old man and the train was stopped. That old man caught the hand of Morewala and prevented him from falling down. All the people and the guard came to see why the train was stopped and who pulled the chain? Shri R. Morewala also wanted to pay tribute to the old man. But the old man was not there and he had disappeared. All were sur­prised, Shri Morewala went to his house and told this incident to all his family members. This incident was told to his son when he went to Chalisgaon in 1964 by a Saint "That had I not saved your father's life in 1953?" Is this not mean that Baba is still living and helping His devotees when they require His help?

BABA SAVED SHRI K. JAGADISH MUNSHI FROM THE HANDS OF RAZAKARS
On 1948, Shfi Jagadish K. Munshi and his wife were travelling in first class compartment of the train going from Bangalore to Bombay . There were six members in the compartment including an old couple and two youngsters. Shri J. K. Munshi and his wife were playing cards. The old man was praying and his wife was watching the others. Before their departure from Bangalore , they had been advised not to travel by this particular route because of Razakars trouble then prevailing in other places of Hyderabad state. They did not pay any heed to the advice as they were youngsters then. The train left Hyderabad and was approaching Sholapur Station in Indian Union. All of a sudden, the train was forced to stop at Gangapur. The Razakars who assembled there with rifles, lathis and other lethal weapons cried out "All Muslims get down. Kill all Hindus". The old man all along in prayer ordered to close all the doors and windows. They promptly carried out his orders. The wailing of passengers who were pulled out of the train, beaten and robbed and field into the nearby fields. The Rasakars repeatedly tried to force to open the doors of their com­partment but failed to do so. Even in this calamity the old man observed his prayer. The struggle went on nearby for five hours. Then the train came to Sholapur with their only one compartment. All the inmates of the compartments arrived safely untouched by the Raza­kars. After somedays of this incident, the old man gave an article in a magazine that because of his prayers to Shri Sai Baba Shirdi that the compartment of the train escaped unhurt by the Razakars. As a witness, he mentioned the name of Shri Jagadish K. Munshi in the article. He told that it was true that the old man was particularly praying at the time and added that he had never heard the name of Shri Sai Baba, Shirdi he forgotten to thank of him. Later on, in 1953, when calamities came in his family, he saw a picture of Shri Sai Baba, Shirdi which was hung in a frame maker's shop on his way to his office. He looked his teachings in the photo as "If you look to me, I shall took to you” Then he remembered the past incident and with his wife's consent, he bought one Sai Baba's photo and performed puja requesting Baba to solve his problems, within a few days thereafter, all his problems had settled at his reasonable satisfaction and the puja went on regularly.
After two years, he was once traveling by a night train left Surat to Bombay . After the train left Surat railway station he developed severe pain on account of stone in the bladder. The pain aggravated in such a manner that he could neither sit, stand nor lie down. He then began to pass blood through urine. His copas­senger was sleeping. When the train came to Palghar, the pain was so severe that he woke up his copassenger and urged him to call the guard. The guard came and complained the position that no doctor could be traced in the train and advised to get down at Palghar and have a treatment from a local doctor. The guard called the Station Master and under their joint advice, he got down at Palghar and the train left the railway station. With the help of Station Master, he was lifted up into a bullock cart and driven to the doctor's residence as the doctor refused to come to the railway station in the late hours of the night. In this critical juncture he prayed Shri Sai Baba for help. The doctor attended on him and gave treatment and he was somehow relieved of the pain. The doctor also sent a call to his relatives at Bombay and they arrived and took him to Bombay the next day. Even for this incident, he did not consider any particular significance to Shri Sai Baba Shirdi. In 1968, his father took him to Sri Satya Sai Baba and introduced to him Shri Satya Sai Baba Said, "I knew him. He is a believer of Shri Sai Baba, Shirdi for the last 16 years. Once he got out of the train in severe pain and called Shri Sai Baba, Shirdi. It was Shirdi Sai Baba who saved him. This utterance of Shri Satya Sai Baba himself assumed significance to Shri Sai Baba Shirdi by him.
In 1959, his one month old daughter fell ill seve­rely and was admitted to the Hospital. The treatment went on for three weeks. Even then the child had been suffering high temperature, his wife and himself were very morose. On 14-11-1959, they were informed by two leading doctors that the survival of the child were remote. He decided that if the child does not survive he would end his worship to Shri Sai Baba, Shirdi. After this decision by him, the temperature of the child decreased gradually and became normal by 7 P.M. within three months of this incident the child was in the pink of health. In March, 1960, they visited Shirdi by car with the child of five months. On the way the child uttered first words "BA-BA-BA-BA" He told that Shri Sai Baba Shirdi is solving his knotted problems of his existence and guiding him. Apart from all these, a great problem among the devotees that Shri Satya Sai Baba is the reincarnation of Shri Sai Baba, Shirdi was been solved beyond doubt by Shri Satya Sai Baba himself in his own sayings in para 2 of this article that he is not re-incaranation of Shri Sai Baba, Shirdi.

BABA SAVED A WOMAN FROM DEATH
In 1927, a husband and wife were returning home after celebrating Ramanavami at Shirdi. The wife got down at Thana railway Station to fetch water and just when with a water full vessel, she was boarding the train, the train started and the woman fell down under the train. The husband and other passen­gers combined shouted to the guard to stop the train. They feared, the woman must have been crushed under the wheels as the train having started already stopped only after it had gone some distance. They ran up to the spot of accident; to their utter amazement they saw the woman standing there uninjured. In reply to the enquiry to all, "the woman said as soon as I fell I remembered Baba. He at once appeared, stood in front of me pressed me hard against the platform till the train passed away and saved me. Baba disappeared as soon as the train left the platform. What sort of Body, Baba had assumed to save this woman? One can hardly know for usually there is no room enough to stand for two persons between the train wheels and the platform, and yet what is not possible to a superman like Baba?

Baba way to Predict Someone’s Death In Shirdi:
In Shirdi village, if anyone was to die, Baba used to go to the borders of the village and blew a conch shell (a conch shell is blown before prayers are stared to make the atmosphere pure as per Hindu tradition). So the villagers cam to know that someone would die the next day.

I cannot but share with this group my sincere gratitude to Baba for his abundance grace he has been showering on me and my family for various issues for which I have had absolutely no answer.

In Dubai I was reeling with so much of difficulties for an accommodation, to my relentless prayers Baba first blessed me with a suitable allowance, but still for some unknown reason I could not get an independent dwelling. The all merciful Lord, the Master Planner was knowing why I should not get an independent apartment then. My son who was till then very bright in his studies broke down the previous day of the model / quality assessment exams of the 12th (Plus 2) saying he is not writing the Board Exams as he has not studied anything. I took him to so many Counseling Centres, Psychologists, and even to many other doctors and he was also undergoing medication for sometime. In spite of my new job I had to take short leaves and travel to India 3 times in two months. My wife and myself were so worried and except praying we have had no recourse.

By the grace of God at last with parents, teachers and well wishers insistence that he writes the Board exams as he would definitely pass the exams even without opening the books as he was so bright, he finally agreed.

Since my daughter was also appearing for the 10th (Board) exams which were falling on the same day, my wife could not have managed them alone as she has to take my son to a school 65 Kms away for his morning exam and by the time she comes back my daughter has to leave for her afternoon exam. I was not knowing what to do as I had not completed 1 year with my present job by which time I had done my 3 trips to India. However, without knowing anything I approached my boss for a 20 days annual leave and he instantly approved it without any hesitation, despite of the fact that there was yet another new person to join for my work coverage.

So I could reach home the previous day of my childrens exams and stay there till next day of the last exams. All these exams days, after sending my wife and son to school I used to light the lamp and do my regular prayers and till they come back I also used to play and listen the Sai Amrita Vani CD Maneeshji gave me in Dubai and used to silently talk to Baba of all my fears. Some days, I used to feel as if Baba reassuring me that everything will be alright.

Even though the exams were over we were all tensed and worried if my son could get at least the pass mark.

When the results came my daughter passed with a 90% plus marks and my son 82% plus. By Sainath's grace, my son is normal now and is in the process of enrolling for an Engineering course. My daughter joined for a very good school for her Higher Secondary studies and also joined for the famous Prof PC Thomas classes with a hostelling facility and thus paving a way for my wife to join me. In the meantime I could also get a reasonably good independent accommodation in Dubai itself.

My Sainath, my beloved Baba, I have no word how to thank you for your immense mercy and do not know how to express our sincere gratitude for all your grace and blessings.

Please accept me and my family at thy lotus feet and let us pray to thee to show us the way and lead us ahead in the days to come in life ahead.

Once again with koti koti pranam at thy lotus feet my beloved Baba.

Jai Sainath.

Shyam

I, Sunil Walvekar reside in Borivali Mumbai. I have a shop of watch repairing since 1993, which runs with Sai Kripa. I started this business on a small bench. My wife, my brother, and I all work hard in unison, remember Sai Baba every minute and thus by Sai Baba’s grace we can earn money which is sufficient to run the expenses of our family.

There are approximately 25-30 pictures of Sai Baba in my shop. My daily routine consists of light incense sticks and Dhoop, offer garland and flowers and do Aarti at 12:00 in noon and at 6:15 in the evening. Approximately 70-100 customers visit my shop everyday from 9:00 in the morning till night. Many people come only to bow to Sai Baba. One devotee sometimes comes to give coconut for Sai Baba. One Sai devotee comes daily to offer some prasad before the noon arti.

Before few days, a lady came for repairing a watch at my shop. I was offering a garland to Sai Baba pictures after lighting the incense sticks. She stood there silently for much time. After finishing my daily worship to Sai Baba I took the watch to be repaired and asked her to come the next day. The watch was repaired and the lady came the next day to take its delivery. I gave him the repaired watch and she paid the charge of it. After this she suddenly asked me a question that what does the flowers and garland, which you offer to Sai Baba, cost you for a day? The question was unexpected for me. I answered saying that it costs me approximately Rs. 90 per day and in this way we give back to Sai Baba what He gives us and so we are not worried of this cost.

Listening to me she immediately gave me Rs. 90 and requested me to offer the garland and flowers to Sai Baba on her behalf for that day. When I expressed my desire to ask her the reason for her offering she answered me in a low voice. She started by introducing herself as Christian by caste. Till today I have never got a chance to go to another temple leaving my church nor there was any occasion of same sort. Yesterday when I came to your shop for repairing my watch you were busy in your worship. I was in very difficulty and confused in my personal matters. I put this matter before Sai Baba and today when I have come to you, all my problems are solved with the grace of Sai Baba. So I want to express my gratitude towards Him by offering Him this gift of flowers. I hope that you will surely fulfill my wish. I was overwhelmed with joy by hearing the words of that lady and I bow from the deep of my heart of the God of all Caste Our Beloved Sai Nath Maharaj.

Last week I happened to visit my maternal uncles place, a village near Jamnagar (Saurashtra region in Gujarat State). People of village are simple, ignorant and devout people. With the efforts of my maternal aunty and my cousin many people there read Sai Satcharitra and very greatly benefited by it. I had a chance to meet many such persons and was very touched. Earlier there was no Sai temple in that village. With the grace of Baba now one temple is constructed on the outskirts of the village. Coincidently I happened to reach there on Thursday. Our house is situated on the main road. The traffic of the road is clearly visible from the windows of the house. I saw many people going on the road that day. I was surprised why so many people were seen on the road. On inquiry to my aunty, she said that they all are going to Sai Mandir. She added that many people go there bare footed on Thursdays and offer coconut and flowers to Sai Baba. We also went for Darshan of Sai Baba in that temple. When we reached there, I felt as if there was fair in the village and all the residents of the village gathered in the temple. In the temple compound there was no space for a person to stand erectly because of the crowd. Somehow with push and pulls of other devotees I got darshan of Sai Baba. I was not all bothered about the troubles, but was happy to see that Sai Baba had pulled many devotees towards Him.

My aunty told me an experience of a small kid of one year named Aditya living in front of their house. He was having very high temperature after Diwali. At that time he was only seven months old. The doctors advised his parents to admit him as soon as possible. My cousins are very fond of playing with him and Aditya is also fond of them. So they brought him to our house to play. Incidentally my cousin asked Aditya to speak Baba and said that he would be well soon. He was not able to speak at that time. But surprisingly, he spoke Baba. From the moment he spoke Baba his health started improving and doctors also said that now it was not necessary to admit him. With the grace of Sai Baba in few days he recovered completely. I was wonderstruck to hear that Sai Baba was so close to a kid who is just one year old whereas many of adult persons have not heard anything about Sai Baba.

In another instance, I happened to meet a lady who was worshipper of Mataji and her family. The daughter-in-law of that lady was eight months pregnant after eight years of marriage. When she went for regular check up, doctor said that the baby was coming downwards from its position and that would be dangerous for the life of both the child and the mother. The family members were much tensed and did not know what to do. That lady consulted my maternal aunty in this matter. My aunty gave Sai Satcharitra and asked her to give it to her daughter-in-law to do Parayan. She did Parayan and completed the book in seven days. After few days during regular check up the doctor said that the baby has restored its position and now the danger has been vanished. The other family members also started believing in Sai Baba due to this incident and did Parayan for 4-5 weeks one after another. Now the grandson of the lady is of two months. They say that he is Prasad of Sai Baba. Had He not there, he wont be with them. The child is very healthy. Though he is two months old, it seems as if he is five to six months old. There is a calendar of Sai Baba hung near the wall, where the cradle of the child is kept. Whenever he wakes up, he looks at the calendar and says Hu Hu Hu. The lady said me that he looks at the calendar as if Sai Baba is saying something to him and he is replying. Whatever may be the Leela of Sai Baba, the child is really blessed to get the company of Sai Baba in his tender age!!

Jai Sai Nath

Last year my mom was sick and the doctor said she has to be operated but her heamoglobin was at 8 and the doctor said they can't operate her till the heamoglobin reaches minimum 11 to 13. I prayed to sai baba and sai gave me everything. I have ever asked for this time too on Thursday my brother called and told me that mom is fine and her heamoglobin is at 13 within a week and Thursday was the day she was successfully operated.

Nanasaheb Chandorkar was a strict devotee. He observed all rituals. It was his practice that he gave offering first to Agni Dev (i.e. God of fire), then he waited for some guest to come and served him food. After that only he took his meals. He used to read many sacred books. During one of his reading, he came across a story of Seth Sagaalsha. No guest came to the house of Seth Sagaalsha for many days, so he had to observe fast, as it was his practice to take his lunch after feeding some guests.

After reading the above incident, a doubt aroused in Nanasaheb’s mind regarding such principles written in Shastras. He thought that if such things are difficult to follow do Shastras comply to follow them? Sai Baba knows all Shastras and so my doubts would be clarified by Him only. so I must leave the matter to Him.

One day when Nanasaheb sat massaging Sai Baba’s legs in Dwarkamai, Sai Baba Himself started speaking. He said, ‘Nana! All the Shastras are correct. Shastras never speak useless things, and not even impure things. The definition of human may be different, the thoughts of human may be narrow, but it cannot be said that Shastras are useless. Guests would surely come!

Nanasaheb was not reminded that Sai Baba is clearing his doubt regarding Seth Sagaalsha which aroused while reading.

Sai Baba further explained, 'Can a man of three and half cubits can only be your guest? Can other living beings can’t be your guests? Just see here and there. You will find many hungry living beings ready to eat the food given by you. Crores of living beings like ants, housefly, crow, dog, goat, cow, rat, etc. roam near you to satisfy their hunger, so are they not your guests? So if you give them a dish full of eatables, they would consume it with love. After satisfying their hunger, those dumb animals will give you blessings and in turn God will be happy with you.'



So dear readers, whosoever comes to us for satisfying its hunger, we must be ever ready to do so. Sai Baba had said that satisfying one's hunger is equal to doing a Yagna. Simplifying further Sai Baba compared hunger with Yagna and thus it means if we satisfy one's hunger, we would get blessings and Punya of doing a Yagna. What a simple method our beloved Sai has given us!

Once some young boys went to Shirdi for Sai Baba’s darshan. They had bought camera with them as they wished to take Sai Baba’s photograph. After one or two days they presented their wish to Shama (Madhavrao Despande). Madhavrao planned that when Sai Baba returns from Lendibaug and reaches near Sathe Wada, he would request Him to wait for a while and during that time, the boys would capture the photograph.

As per their plan, the team along with Shama waited for Baba to return from Lendibaug by keeping the camera ready to capture Baba’s photo. Just then Baba came and asked, “Shamya, (sometimes Baba used to call Madhavrao ‘Shamya’ lovingly) What is this? Shama answered, “Baba, these boys wants to capture your photograph, please wait for a while”. Sai Baba said, “Tell these boys not to capture any photograph and just break the wall” and went away.

By the words, “Break the wall”, Sai Baba meant that He was not in only three and half cubits of body, but He was everywhere. So why there is any need to capture His photograph. There is a wall of ego, proud, laziness and break that wall. After breaking the wall of differentiation, devotees can be one with Him.


In an another incident, an expert photographer of Bombay came to Shirdi for darshan of Sai Baba. He wanted to capture Sai Baba’s photograph secretly and that’s why he had bought his camera with him. He captured the photograph. When the photograph was developed, it contained the face of the photographer’s guru instead of Sai Baba’s face. He was surprised to see such a divine miracle of Sai Baba. But later he understood that Sai Baba wanted to say that we should worship and serve only our guru.

Om Sai Ram, I just like to share one of my experiance where the benevolent Sai has guided me. I am in the habit of asking guidence from Baba. It goes like this, if He agrees with my decision He gives me darshan, if He does not give darshan that means, I am not pursuing the right course. One day I was very depressed because of some personal problems and asked Him if He agrees of what I am thinking, to give darshan and bless me, but He did not give the darshan. In the evening while coming back I reversed the question and asked Him to give darshan if He is in agreement with what I am thinking. I was waiting at a red light signal on the road in my car when one car came on my right side and I saw a huge statue (Moorthi) of Baba on the dashboard. The occupant of that car knocked at my car window and gave me a photograph of Baba. To my amazement it was the same photograph of Sri Sai. I was completely mesmerised. This shows that Baba is omnipresent and if you seek His advise or guidance with full devotion and patience He is there to guide you. This is one of my various experiences with our benevolent Sai.

Jai Sai Ram,
 I am a devotee of Sri Shiridi Sai Baba for the last 4 years. I immigrated to Canada in Feb2002.I am a pharmacy graduate with 4 years of software experience. After coming to Canada I started my pharmacy carrier in April 2002. I thank Baba for giving me an opportunity for sharing my experiences with all of you. I had promised Baba that if I pass my Canadian pharmacy-licensing exam (P.E.B.C), then I would be writing my experience (miracle of Baba) in the newsletter.
There are 2 parts to the exam  a)Theory( 2 papers)  b)Practical exam   I took these exams in the first week of November2004. I started my preparation on 1st September 2004.Prior to that I never opened a book for any kind of preparation as far as exam is concerned. With the grace of Baba I did study very hard for 2 months (September and October). I was not confident enough to take up the exam. I compared my preparation with all other friends. I was the least prepared amongst all. Unfortunately I could not study the whole syllabus because of lack of time .At that point of time I could not even think of revising what I studied. In 2 months of preparation. I could go through 75% of the syllabus that too only once. I left everything to Baba. Everything is his mercy.
 On Nov 3rd I took my first theory paper. I was falling short of time. I was rushing through the exam in order to complete it on time. In this mad rush I had answered some questions incorrectly though I knew the correct answer. After coming out from the exam hall. Every one whom I met said that the paper was very easy. To be frank I felt a bit difficult. On Nov 4th(Thursday) I took my 2nd theory paper. On that day I had a peculiar experience. Just before starting my exam I had put my hand bag (which had the photograph of Sai Baba) on the table at the front of the examination hall .The exam had commenced and I was writing my hall ticket number on the answer booklet. I thought in my mind if for some reason if the examiner asks me to take out the bag from the table I will put the bag on the chair next to the table .As I thought the examiner asked me to take away the bag on the table. Now I had put the bag on the chair that is next beside the table. Then I though if the examiner asks me to take away the bag from the chair I will put the bag on the floor (spreading my jacket and sweater on the floor). I though that Baba is testing me. Then I started answering my exam paper. I had answered 85 to 90 questions (out of 135 questions) in 90 minutes with out even having any second thought on any question. The rest 45 questions I did in 2 hours time. (Total duration of the exam was 3 and half hours). I had enough time to even sing Baba’s Bhajans in my mind during the exam.  In the month of September the Owner of the pharmacy where I work called me and told me that she cannot accommodate me from 1st Jan 2005 as she has a deficit budget .In other words She told me to quit the job from 1st Jan 2005.
Baba indicated to me couple of times that I would clear the exam but still I had my own doubts about my result. Couple of weeks after the exams .I ordered for High Speed Internet (MSN) package from Bell Canada. They had sent me a C. D and instruction booklet to the nearest post office. My wife works at Shoppers Drug Mart, Downtown and her work hours are from 11:30 am to 6:30 pm. She uses the subway to commute. After work she takes the subway, and at around 7:10 - 7:20 pm she usually arrives at the Islington subway (which is very close to my apartment). On that day I collected the High Speed Internet package from the nearest post office for which I had to take the subway as well. On my return to my home I reached Islington subway at around 7:05 pm. At this point of time a thought crossed my mind.” If I see my wife before I reach my apartment then I would pass both my exams”. I decided in my mind that I should not wait at the subway not even for a moment but walk straight to my apartment, which is 5 minutes walk from the Islington subway. Almost I stepped out of the subway I could not see my wife. I was a bit dejected. I turned my head right and lo.... my wife was on to my right side. For the first time after taking up the exams I told my wife that I now believe that there are chances for me to pass the exams. Couple of weeks before the results I was called for an interview by one of the Shoppers in Windsor, Ontario. I was asked to come down to Windsor and the owner promised me to pay for all the expenses. So I went to Windsor. I stayed in Windsor for 1 day, during this time myself and the owner of the store discussed on so many issues e.g.: religion, traditions, pharmacy profession, marriages etc. All this time the owner was checking my communication skills. Fortunately by Baba’s grace he was impressed by me and offered me a position as a Pharmacist at his store. He read out the contract conditions and asked me to sign the contract if the offer is O.K to me. I asked the owner to wait for couple of weeks so that we can get the results. Suddenly He asked me which god do I believe in. I said “SAI BABA”. He then repeated “Oh SAI BABA”. The owner was a white man and he doesn’t know anything about Sai Baba. Then he said, “form what ever I had heard about you, I am sure the result will be positive”.
       

On the day of my results. I left to work by 7.0 am. Around 8:30 am my wife called me at my work place and said that the results were out on the Internet and enquired about my result. She didn’t knew the password for the website where the results are displayed. I was looking on the pharmacy board website from my work place and I could not find my hall ticket number. I told my wife that I failed the exam. Usually the hall ticked numbers of the people who have passed the exam are displayed in sequence. For some reason the hall ticket numbers were not in sequence this time. Almost I lost hope, then I was casually scrolling down the results screen on the computer. Lo ... I saw my number I could not believe this and tears of joy rolled from my eyes.  Un doubtfully I attribute my success to SRI SHIRIDI SAI BABA. With out Baba’s grace and blessings I could have NEVER achieved this success. This reminds me of Hemadpant’s words in SATCHARITA “that a devotees progress is smooth and certain (Spiritual and Worldly progress) with the blessings of Baba”. Baba never turns down his devotees. Baba knows better than anyone what is good for his devotees. Shraddha and Saburi are the two things Baba expects from his devotees. I would like to thank my friends Abdul Arif and Devotham Reddy for their selfless guidance and encouragement for these exams. I had so many experiences of Baba in the month of December. To be frank I am falling short of space to send all the experiences to this website. I am sending this experience to saibaba.org website from my new home in Windsor. I will be starting my new job in Windsor on 6th Jan (Thursday) 2005.

Baba came into my life through a person who gave a loan to my father. Once he came to our house to collect the loan and given the bad financial state we were in, he felt pity and gave a picture of Sai to my mother and asked to pray to him to solve all the troubles. From then on my mother started praying and I did not have much belief but still I used to go to Baba temple in Mylapore. Years passed by and there were numerous miracles happening all along the way, all this happened while we are totally in a helpless state. Our financial position never improved but it never was a stumbling block in our life, be it the marriage of both my sisters or my education; Baba made sure that everything happened on time and with all grandeur. While my belief started taking form the situations were little tough and I resorted to Baba's feet with more determination. One major instance is when I was preparing for entrance examination for MBA. Though I did not have the luxury for coaching classes, Baba introduced me to a friend with whose help the preparation became a lot easier. Baba made me attend a lot of examinations and in all I did really well much to the disbelief of my parents. Finally in one examination I got a rank with a scholarship too. There was another shocking incident, my mother who was in my village had some neurological problem and went into coma. Everybody lost hope and no one was ready to help us in any way, at this moment Baba in the form of our brother-in-law gave us all the help we needed. Because of the attack my mom lost her memory and was not able to recall most of the things. Again this was a cause of worry, in a few more days Baba helped mom to get back her memory.

continued.....
Baba got me a placement where I was the only one to get selected out of 70. Again this helped me to go back home and take care of my mother. Once I was back home we have to take a rented place and was looking for a house. After frantic search we are able to find a good house within our budget, once again its a miracle the house which we got was kept vacant by Baba for us for 18 months in the heart of Chennai city. In July 2006 I came to Shirdi along with my parents and it was the first visit for my Mom. With Baba's grace I was able to take my parents on their first flight and the journey was absolutely comfortable all along the way till we reached home. It was pure bliss for everyone and I really cherish it all my life. I met my life partner who is a devotee of Baba as well. Our marriage went on very well and after our marriage me and my wife went to Shirdi for taking Blessings of Baba. We were standing in the queue to take darshan and while we were nearing Baba we want to give the garland and sweets to the priest there, initially he did not take it and suddenly he smiled and asked us, so you are newly married couple from Hyderabad? It was really a surprise as there is nothing evident either in the dress or appearance to say that we are newly weds. All I want is to be at the feet of Baba with unwavering faith and devotion.

Sunitaji,

I have just read your experiences about BABA and could not stop myself. My eyes were filled with tears as recently I have experienced one after another. Last week I have finished reading Saicharit within three days and after that I am experiencing many small incidents happening everyday. I am indebted to BABA.  I would like to know how you do PURANMASI VRATA as I have heard about it. I don't even know how to do puja properly. I just offer bhog and lite a diya infront of BABA's statue in the morning and evening. Could you please give some details about the VRATA if it's possible.

OM Sai Ram Sai blesses to all.

OM SAI RAM

Sunitaji and Dipikaji,

Thank you both for your responses. I also don't observe fast or follow any rules during puja but felt strongly about Puranmasi Vrat because full moon is very special. I actually do not know much about religious rituals. It's true that  we don't require any hard and fast rules to follow BABA's path.
Baba blesses to all.

RECENT REAL SAI LEELA'S THAT I HEARD Today only a very ardent
believer of sai ram told me about the following two beautiful
incidents,it' s very interesting, so read on,like sai ram wants us to
always talk about his leela's i'd like to share them with all you
blessed people of sai:
> 1. A bhakta carrying 2 lac of rupees,came staight to the sai ram
mandir very close to my house, and asked the pandit ji to keep this
cash as sai ram's own money.The pandit ji said that it would be best
if he could deposit the money with the cashier outside,as was the
norm.But the man insisted on the pandit ji to take the money right
away as this belonged to sai ram,the pandit got anxious and asked
the man as to why and what brought him here with the money...
> The man said,long time back,his son was applying to be established
in the U.S. as a doctor,for which he required a lot of money.The man
had only 35,000 r.s. in his bank account,so naturally he went
looking for help.He went to all his family and friends,but none came
to his rescue,everyone made silly excuses and refused the poor
fellow.So disheartened as he was from the world,with all his heart
and soul he prayed to sai ram for desprate help.He thought atleast
he should send away the amount that was there in his bank account.So
he went to his bank,asked the accountant there to give him the
35,000 r.s. left in his account.TO HIS SURPRISE THE ACCOUNTANT TOLD
HIM THAT THERE WERE 2LAC R.S. IN HIS ACCOUNT.He obviously thoght
that this was impossible and asked the accountant to check again,but
it was true that there were 2 lac r.s.Ok,so he took the anmount,left
for his home,kept wondering and looking if someone from the bank
moght come back and tell him that there must be some
> mistake.He couldn't believe it,who could??He didn't sleep for
many nights but was relieved of the pressure when he used those 2
lac rupees eventually for his son.
> Some years later,the man said,that he saw baba in his dream.Baba
asked him if everything was fine with him and his son,the man said
yes sai ram i'm most thankful that we are fine...
> then baba finally asked him"then pls return back my 2 lac rupees"
>
> therefore the man had come today to return those 2 lac rupees
which baba had lent at the most needful hour!
> three cheers for sai ram..hip hip hurray,hip hip hurray,hip hip
hurray!
> amazing leela wasn't it,i couldn't believe my ears when i heard it!
> jai sai ram
>
> My Sai Is Grate
>
> Om Sai Ram
>

Baba is with all those who have faith and patience in him. We were in search of a good second car which could be in our budget, went and saw cars from various car dealers for about two months, and finally came to settle with one. My husband who has tremendous knowledge and a very keen eye had inspected this car very minutely. After doing all the formalities, we went to the Shirdi Sai Baba temple at Lodhi Road, New Delhi. After offering our prayers and seeking His blessings, we went towards our car to offer prasad. To our utter surprise as we stood in front of the car to write Omkar, me and my husband noticed together a small sticker in the middle of the wind screen saying "Om Sai Ram". We just couldn't believe this miracle as we had screened the car so many times, and this sticker had gone unnoticed and became visible as soon we offered prayers to Baba. This was a blessing to us from Baba, and we were quite relieved that we had been blessed with a good car. We all crave for materialistic and worldly pleasures, but a true devotee is who even with everything remembers Baba, and prays to him for the entire human kind.

Seema
Last month my younger brother-in-law, who was not keeping well for quite some time was diagnosed for Endocarditis, and the Echo showed significant vegetation (sort of lump of flesh) on the heart. We were all tense and worried. We prayed to Baba endlessly to have mercy since he is very young and then have kids and family to support. Every time we were getting the Echo done the results were not matching with the previous test, inspite of the medication and hospitalization, doctors were not very clear on what line of medication should they stick to (either to hospitalize him or operate him). Then finally they decided to go for a last test, (all this while we were praying to Baba that goes without saying). Finally it was decided that whatever is the result, line of treatment will be based on that last and final test. To the surprise of all that test showed no vegetation and the radiologist carried out the test said he is not absolutely sure of the test and results. This is purely Baba's chamatkaar. Baba, we your children wish and pray to let us remain in your lotus feet and roll in the dust of your feet and keep chanting Your name. Baba, please bless us all with good health and happiness.

Srinivasan
While reminiscing about the beneficence that our Sadguru Sai Baba so graciously showed my room mate, who has since been transferred back to Chennai, just as he had fondly wished for, the thought of one anecdote that took place recently before his relocation, cannot be dismissed as trivial. When my room mate and I traveled to Shirdi to pray for his transfer on 26th December 2007, he bought an imposing portrait of Sai Baba, so he could carry that to Chennai. A few days after we returned to Hyderabad from Shirdi, he went to Chennai on leave. On the day, he was leaving for Chennai, I fervently prayed to Baba to prevail upon my roommate to leave behind the laminated portrait of Baba. Much to my delight, Baba answered my prayer when my roommate left behind the portrait. After his return to Hyderabad from prolonged leave in Chennai and preparatory to his transfer back to Chennai, I asked him why he had left behind Baba's portrait, he told me that he intentionally left that as a memento of our brief association in Hyderabad.

Dipika ji,
You are so lucky to be blessed by SAIMA.  Iam in a big vicious circle of problems from more than 15 yrs. After marriage problems multiplied. I have lost confidence on myself n faith,see no hope . I guess it is the punishment for my bad kharma. Pls pray for me and all people who need help. I am not selfish but since you are blessed child of BABA ,i request you to do this for all the needy.

SAI pls help all of us and bless us all.

Experience of Shirdi Sai Baba by our maid

Dear Readers,

We do not know how baba plans or how he intends to help someone ,after some time when things starts to fall in place than we realise the worth of any action or incident that took place in past or present .Than we feel the greatness of the Guru .Mystical shall always be Babas way beyond our reasoning ...this is what I always feel . Mar 21, 2007 This incident had taken place last year in my mothers place when I had come for summer vacation.


My parents named our home"Sai-Kripa" as it is pure Sai's Kripa to bless us with this house and we can feel HIS presence all the time. (from the foundation till it stood complete Babas Udi was sprinkled all the time).Well to continue....


At my mothers place two month back a new maid joined us SHANTI .She was very needy ,poor( from a good family ) and did not had any food past 3 days along with her 3 children ,her husband is a alcoholic and had ruined his once prospering family with his drinking habit .She came looking for a Job.

The day she came to our house it was Thursday.

A week back my mom on Thursday suddenly with a thought asked her to take one of the Babas calendar to her home as my mom felt she will be blessed by baba and would get strength to overcome her sufferings and also asked her to take some other eatables which she had kept for her when she would be leaving for her home in the evening.

When she was leaving for her home she took all the eatables kept for her and left babas calendar behind. Later when my mom found Calendar where it was placed as it is in its place.. she felt how unfortunate she is that she forgot baba to take along with her and also felt angry on her behavior.

Never mind next day when she came and when my mom questioned her she couldn’t say anything thinking my mom might get she said that she forget and that she will take it on coming Thursday .Mom with her simplicity felt that it will be Navratri and its good that Baba wishes to go with her during that time. Days passed and Navratri came.

It was 21st when she was washing clothes she felt a blow of air gushing through the bathroom door,inside she was washing clothes and when she looked up to see ..oh my God what she saw "Baba in his Mighty Physical form –tall about 6 feet" ,looking at her with anger ,she went blank and was shivering and nervous .She couldn’t even look up directly at baba and kept calling all the names of family deity god –goddess which she could remember .

But baba did not move an inch he was standing steady and looking at her for 10 minutes ,than Baba said “Until you don’t take my name I am not going to go”. She even tried to shout and call me Didi –Didi but she could not hear her own voice . Finally she folded her hands and said to Baba “please give me one chance I will take your name please forgive me “ And the minute she uttered this she saw that baba left .

She came out and nervously said to me-" didi I felt that there is ghost or some shadow in this house and when I looked up I saw Sai baba- he looked exactly like you have in pooja room .I was scared and shivering, calling your name but he did not leave until I asked forgiveness than only he left".

Immediately I asked her Shanti did you say anything to baba when mom was giving you calendar last week since you had not taken it ? Or any negative thought you had? She denied and I asked her 3 more times differently but her answer was same. But in spite of her this answer I said you have nothing to scare or worry ,you are very blessed that baba is calling you at his feet and he is showering his grace by showing you himself in His physical form- you are very blessed . She was changed and she came to mom and said to mom that-" I will take babas calendar tomorrow on Thursday".

Thursday morning 22nd when she came she immediately told us what happened last night in her dream. Again baba had come to her, this time she could only see his face (not the whole body) -more composed and lovingly looking at her .She saw that baba is applying udi to her daughter who was holding babas pooja dish and who bowed down at babas feet and Shanti stood folding her hand to baba ,baba just said these words “God will do her good” and blessed her and left.
She felt peace, happiness, her body felt light and increase in her devotion for Baba after this dream. Her heart was full of bhakti .

I will not forget to mention that later when today mom was giving her UDI ,Locket and Calender in the mandir she confessed that she had deliberately not taken the calendar and that she thought that she would never pray to him she does not know him ,neither she knows whether he is Hindu or Moslem (and she said she uttered harsh words for baba )or she would not take his photo ,she infact said it loudly in her own mind that why I should? ,infact I will not come to work also and leave it who knows he may kill me .

And a day later after her night vision/dream of baba she is so full of love and devotion for baba that she pledges to take his name,pray him heart to heart and wants locket and udi for her family .

I leave it here as it is for the reader to think and imagine the love of baba and his mystical ways……

Rajeev
A very uncalled incident involving my only son, aged five years, who accidentally hurt his fingers by putting them in mixer-grinder machine, brought us (me and my wife) to the lotus feet of 'Sai' for comfort and solace. We ran from pillar to post for solution to our son's ailment, but no avail. When we were weary of doctors, experts, advisors; a ray of hope came in the form of blessing by pujariji of Sai temple, which we visited by chance. He told us to shun worries and surrender to Sai. Surprisingly, we felt at peace in Sai's presence and relieved of burdens for no reasons whatsoever. Continuous visits to Sai strengthened the bond between us and Sai and we started treating Him as Guru. For a considerable time, we worshiped Sai as told by pujariji. Occasionally, he would mention that we should visit Shirdi, the divine place of Sai and see Sai truly manifest himself in every nook and corner of Shirdi. He added that only Sai's wish would permit us to visit Shirdi. We silently prayed to Sai to allow us to visit Shirdi. As a matter of fact, we never left home alone without a relative or friend to accompany us. Sai had other plans for us. A casual relationship with a friend materialized into a deeper bond when he showed us the path to Sai and Shirdi. He gave us Sai Satcharita book to read. Upon reading Sai Satcharita, we got to know Sai better and cleared doubts about certain misconceptions. Suddenly, our friend asked us to accompany him to Shirdi. He made all the arrangements for travel, stay and places. We reached Shirdi and had darshan at Sai Samadhi mandir, attended evening aarti. It was a like a dream come true.

continued......
Next day, when we went to mandir, we had wished that we should stand close to Sai as possible. To our surprise, we were allowed to stand near Samadhi and pujariji took my son touched his forehead with Sai's feet and gave my son and me a rose flower each that was kept on the Samadhi. Till date, I have kept it around my neck as prasad of Sai. We never dreamed of it and yet it happened in reality. We stayed in Shirdi for two days, visited all the places where Sai went. Our friend had been coming to Shirdi since his childhood so he knew all the places thoroughly and he showed us everything and explained us everything in detail as mentioned in Sai Satcharita. We came home satisfied yet yearning to go again. Such is the impact of Sai. Once you know Him, embrace Him and you tend to remain closer to Him. That is human nature, when we have nothing we want something and we get something, we demand more and more. But praise to Sai, he transforms our worldly desires into longing for Sai. Thereafter, we faced so many hurdles but surrendered to Sai believing that everything happens, happens for good and approved by Sai. My mother-in-law expired, we plunged in grief, Sai helped us to recover from that immense grief. We lost our guarding angel on earth. Three months from death of my mother-in-law, my sister-in-law committed suicide and her parents implicated all the members of our family in dowry-related case. We were dumb-struck, as we have not perceived this situation. Again, Sai came to our rescue. With the help of my brother-in-law, police officials were able to convince that my wife and I had nothing to do with it and moreover we had gone outskirts of town to visit relatives. Complaint was registered but with mild charges and against my brother and parents only. It was a tough case but we pleaded with Sai for rescue of our parents. Sai answered our prayers and within three months, we were able to secure permanent bail for parents.

continued......
We had promised to visit Shirdi once our parents were out of confinement. Again my friend expressed his desire to visit Shirdi and he contacts me, as he knew that I had visited Shirdi and I would know details about Shirdi. We made plans and were able to visit Shirdi. We had darshan at Sai mandir and marveled at the miracles of Sai who had given us repeated opportunity to fulfill our vows. We prayed that misery of our parents should end, hoping that trial pending court would end in our favor and sorrow of separation from our brother would vanish. But fate struck again and my mother expired. We were surprised then we knew that what we wished, Sai had granted that. Perhaps the misery of my mother would have ended with her life only otherwise she would have led a life of cripple for rest of period. Sai had granted her peaceful and uneventful life however short it may be. I sincerely believe that my mother rests in peace under the realm of Sai's protection and is at peace from worldly worries. Again we vowed to visit Shirdi if our three wishes namely, our own home, father's health and bail of brother. These wishes are very complicated and not easy to achieve and we had no hope also. Surprisingly, all these wishes got fulfilled one by one on their time and all the above wishes were completed to the utmost satisfaction and contentment. We were able to move into our own house as we had dreamed and health of my father improved as news of bail acceptance of my brother came. Now my brother is residing with my father and my father has promised to move with us in due course of time. As promised, we are waiting for Sai's approval to visit Shirdi and I am posting this article with much faith and deliberation that Sai will be granting us another chance of visiting Shirdi.

I am here sharing my experience with you all. My sister is a strong devotee of Sai Baba and I also used to believe in him but was never a very staunch follower. I wanted to go to Shirdi since long but could never make it as I believe that he call us but can't go at our own will. My first visit was with my brother in law and during this visit he gave me Sai Satcharitra . I took the book but never finished it. A year passed and we made heavy loss in our business but still by his grace every thing was going on. My wife had a job so we did not feel the pinch so hard but there were loans to be cleared. All of a sudden I remembered about the book and started reading and every thing started becoming normal. We purchased a new house and the first House Warming card I wrote in the name of Shri Sai Baba and invited him for the function. The card was sent to my sister in Mumbai to be further sent to Shirdi, which she did. On the day of the puja all my relatives were present and the pandit who was to perform the puja had set all the essential things for the puja. I had carried the newly framed photograph of Sai Baba and kept it in the new kitchen thinking that when the puja is over I will set the photo in one of the rooms. I never thought of it as my mind was in the puja preparations. In the start of this puja, my wife and myself, have to enter the house with a kalash and coconut in our hand ( this ritual is in all hindu customs, I believe). As we were about to do so the pandit asked do you have any Gods photo in the house I said yes I just got Sai Babas frame and kept it in the Kitchen. He asked his other pandit assisting him to bring it and asked me to hold it in my hands while entering the new house for the first time. This is how Baba attended our House Warming ceremony. I never expected this to happen but Baba did bless us by attending our puja that day.

Baba always has helped us in every situation. Two months back it so happend that I suddenly discovered a lump in breast and got terrified. We went to the doctor and she said that it was a significant one and that I should have gone to her much earlier also since I had a history of cancer in our family (grand parents), I was at a greater risk. We were terrified and only thought of Baba for all the help as only He could help us come out of this situation. I started thinking of my two little kids and wept. Anyway the doctor sent me for all the test like mammogram, ultrasound etc. Waiting for the results were even tougher. The doctor herself looked worried and insisted in getting the reports sooner from the test center. Later the same day she called us up and told that the radiologist thinks that it might only be a Benign mass and that there is nothing to worry. This brought a lot of relief into my life. Later I was sent for a surgery to remove the lump and to reconfirm everything is normal. Now after all that trauma I am back to normal by the grace of Lord Sai. So in any situation if we think of Baba with great devotion, He will be ready to help us get out of it. Thanks to Baba a lot and always help us in having great faith and devotion in You.

Kamala Devi

My name is Kamala Devi. I believe Sai Baba as my grandfather who saved my mothers' life. It was in Feb 1998 when we came to know that my mother had cervix tumor. The doctors said that it was in advanced stage. I did not know what to do. On a Thursday, I went to Saikrupa where every Thursday satsang were being organized by Mrs. Annapurna Devi who is a staunch believer of Sai Maharaj. On that day, as the satsang was going on, Mrs. Annapurnadevi stared at me with tears in her eyes. I felt that Baba was calling me and went to her to narrate the suffering but nevertheless Baba is sarvantaryami, without me saying anything she asked me not to worry and that my mother be alright within 6 months and that she has to take Baba thirtham everyday 4 times and just keep faith in Baba, I felt solace and I went to my mother told her the great experience with her. My mother strictly followed the prescription by Baba . To our rejoice in june1998 we took a CTScan for her and incredulously the report came very normal that is there are no traces of cancer. Hence I feel that Baba has given gift to us and I am ever indebted to him. It is ineffable to describe his magnanimity

Sai Vijayadevan, Hyderabad, India
It's been quite a few years since we had a darshan of Lord Sainath at Shirdi. All our efforts to make it to Shirdi over the last few years were futile. Nevertheless, we reposed firm faith in the Lord. Alas, the call came from Shirdi. We visited Shirdi last week with family. We were in the queue at around noon and were lucky enough to have had a chance to be at the Mandir for the Noon Aarti. We thought of returning back home the next day. Somehow, I was feeling uncomfortable and wanted to visit the mandir again and pray to the lord and prostrate at the feet of Lord Sai Nath, which we could not get this opportunity the previous day (as we returned without touching the feet/samadhi). All of a sudden, while we were on our shopping spree, my wife, my brother-in-law and I just rushed inside the temple all of a sudden and lo! My wish was fulfilled. We were back in the hotel room in about an hour. My joy knew no bounds on that day and I felt extremely happy that BABA fulfilled my wish. Bow to Sri Sai-Peace be to all.

Deepen Bhatt
Friday 18th October. 2.30 AM: My wife went into Labor, and was experiencing quite some pain/discomfort. Having called the midwife and my aunt who lives near us (to take us to the hospital), we waited. In the meantime I went up to Baba's portrait in our living room and prayed thus." BABA please take care of everything and protect us, you sent VIBHUTI to your devotee when his daughter was in pain, won't you do the same for this unworthy son of yours? Please protect and help us"

About 5 minutes later, my aunt came to pick us up and removed a packet of VIBHUTI, She said."Oh, I've brought Baba's vibhuti when I went to Shirdi, it's the last packet I had, please give it to Arti with some water".

At this point, I couldn't hold the tears in my eyes, and remembered BABA, who fulfilled his promise. My wife delivered a healthy BABY girl without any trouble. JAI SAI RAM. JAI MAA AMBE

 Sai devotee
I want to thank you, Sai Baba for all you have done for me. Were it not for your grace Baba, my children and me would be lying in a hospital or worse dead by now. On Sunday while I was driving with my kids in the back, I made a wrong turn that would have involved me a very serious accident by having a car hit mine in the back. However, by Baba's grace, I saw this fast car while merging onto a lane and I quickly swerved my car into the oncoming traffic lane. By Baba's grace there was no car coming towards me at that time. I stopped my car and put on the hazard lights (had I gone a couple of feet more I would have gone into a ditch). Within 2 minutes an oncoming car approached but seeing me, the driver slowed down and went into the opposite lane (his oncoming traffic lane) and passed me by. I then reversed and went back into my lane. I do not know where I got the presence of mind to do all this; normally I am a very impulsive person and panic in any small situation. All I can think of is that Baba drove my car and pulled my kids and me to safety or he gave me presence of mind to act quickly. Whatever it is, I am extremely grateful to Baba. Baba, thank you very much and please be with me always. Thank you Baba, please take of your children. On Sai Jai Jai Sai.

A Sai devotee
SAIRAM, You know what is happening in my life, you blessed us with a child, but Baba there are some things happening after that which make me very nervous. Baba, why everything gets so complicated for me? After so much of anguish, We had a child, Please Sairam take care of us. I believe in you. I believe you can do anything to save your devotees. You know how much "Aradana" I did when I was pregnant; the recent happenings make me wonder why these things happened to us after all that worship. Even in such a disaster you saved us, there is no doubt about that in my mind, but Sairam please always save us from going through such disasters. Please save us all. You know everything and I am leaving everything to you. Please Sairam save us. Om Sairam Pahimam.

I am working in a SW company and studying simultaneously. I got a chance to fly to London for work in December (exams were happening). I was about to accept it by ignoring the exams but suddenly the chance got cancelled and I was pretty sad that I missed it but I wrote my exams well. Then due to lot of problems my project got suspended and all the chances were lost, and I was out of that project in February. Then I was sitting without any work and thought my chance was ruined, then again exams came in May and when it was about to get over. I got a call from one of the senior officials saying I have been selected and I need to travel in June (exams over and I was free). I was surprised as I got the job because of my hard work in the previous project but the time and situation changes got me in to the right chance and time. This made me realize in Baba's tactics.

Shweta
My husband got transferred to Pune recently. He was searching for a house on rent there. We got one good house through a broker but on the day of signing the agreement he found that there was a theft in the same house, which we were planning to take on rent. He cancelled the agreement. Then we were very worried about the security of the house. Then we both prayed to Baba and asked him to help us in searching a secured house and in a good locality. And with Baba's grace we got a very good house in a good residency area. Baba always be with us and with all your devotees.

Sudhakar
Thanks Baba to bless my wife with a good job on a Thursday. Please be with all of us as always.

Praveena
It is only because of Your blessings and kindness that my husband and I got a job few months back and as you know I am going to complete my probationary period in few more days. Baba, You have taken care of my worries and has blessed my family. I pray to you to shower your blessings on all the needy and always to take care of us.

Santosh
Dear Baba, Thanks for all that you have given us. We are grateful to you we are indebted to You. Please tell us our duties and we will perform them to the very best of our abilities. Baba, thank you for getting my son a seat in a good school. Please see that he has a good character, good discpline, mannners, education, concentration success, good luck and good earnings from now on forever. Please continue to shower Your blessings on us. As promised I have expressed my gratitude to You in this newsletter and promise to fulfill all our good vows.

I want to share my experience with all the Sai devotees. It's been a year that we have moved to Canada. Baba protected us at every step, as it was a tough time for my family to settle in a new country. In the starting days, we went to health care office to apply for our health card. We did all the formalities and showed them the legal documents. That lady told us that we would receive our health card after three months. We left the office and went to bank to open an account. The manager of the bank asked us for some proof to open an account, as we had all the legal documents in our bag then we confidently told her that we can show you right away. We were in shock when we did not find the documents in our bag. My husband checked the bag 3-4 times but did not find them. At that time, we were like earth is not under our feet. We told manager that we would come some other time to show you the documents, as we have to rush somewhere else. When we came out of the bank, we were like crying that where we left the documents. Those documents were our Passports, PR cards, Rent agreement and other important stuff. We were new and all the proofs of our residency were missing. We cried and begged to Baba for mercy. We told Him that we would be Your slave whole life if we would get the documents back. My husband told me to go back to health care office and check out but we were not sure whether we will get them there because there was a long queue and we were like if someone else get those documents then he or she could misuse them. We were praying to Baba and reached that office. The security guard did not allow us to go to the reception but I begged him to let me go once and check out from that lady if she would have kept it somewhere. He told me that the shift has changed and that lady has gone. I was like crying and prayed to Baba that if You are there then You have to do something.

continued......
I don't know how that guard agreed to check out the reception desk. Below that desk he found a file and showed me whether it is ours or not. Oh my Baba, I was like so happy from inside and my tears were flowing, I told him that yes that file is ours. He said how would I get to know that it is yours, and then he asked our D.O.B and other stuff. I don't know how Baba came there and rescued us. Thanks to Baba, he gave us that file. We have never seen such a big miracle of Baba ever. We thanked Baba and hold our ears, if we have done something wrong then please forgive us and thanks for Your blessing Sainath. I just want to say one thing and that is, whenever we pray to Saibaba with pure heart He always listen to us and stand by us. Thank you so much Sai for helping us at each and every step of our life. Now my husband is settled, I will also get a job by Baba's grace within a few months. Baba, You are always with all your devotees. Thanks Baba, You are our mother and father.

Dear Ashokji/veenaji/ all Sai Bhandhus,

 

 

                                                       I am a Shirdi Sai Devotee and daily as per veenaji and ashokji I am reciting Sai Amritvani, Aartis and reading Sri Sai Satcharitra after Joined this group only I known Babaaji's fame and name and became HIS devotee and getting more benefits.

 

                                                        But my husband is praying only Vaishnav God and our Kuldevatha Sri Lakshmi Narasimhaswamy performing pooja and all and used wear Gopi Chandan Mark on his forehead. 

 

                                                        He visit all temples but not used to apply VIBHUTHI on his forehead so far.  Even Babaji's Dhuni if I give him he wont apply and he wont disturb be to apply for myself and never disturbed my Sai Pooja.

 

                                                         Recently (Three days Back) his Parkinsonism Disease was given more trouble and his leg and hands shaking more than before and he got pain. Our Doctor advised to go to Another Neurologist the appointment has been fixed with him on 4/07/08. 

 

                                                         In the meanwhile I was spoken with him and expressed my believeness in Sai Baba's DHUNI and if he permit me I myself apply in all the affected parts he will get somehow soon recovery from the ailment because of Baba's grace.

I told him about several miracles done by Babaji and the importance of sacred UDHI. At last he accepted to apply Baba's udhi and I started to apply at 10 pm night sharp on his forehead, shaking hands and legs with retiting of Night Aarthi Songs of Babaji's and incluive of my heartful request to clear his aliment. Babas grace on that day he got Sound Sleep and peace of mind.

 

                                                           The next Day(Second Day) we had little quarrel I didnt apply Baba's Udhi and went for sleep.  The Third Day He himself called me at sharp 10pm and asked why I left the work to apply Babaji's Udhi on the previous day and requested me to Apply and recite Aarthi Palms.

 

                                                            HOW GRACE OF BABAS UDHI AT ONCE CHANGED HIS MIND (HIS AGE IS NOW 65-till that time he didnt apply any God's Udhi-Only wear Vaishanv Gopichandan Naam). I was so happy and started to apply Udhi and then now I am continuing without stopping even for anything since 3days.)

 

                                                             This is the Miracle in my life done by Babaji and I believe strongly My husband will be cure soon with babaji's Grace.

I was suffering from deception, material losses, betrayal and physical assault. The expected outcome was depression, very high sugar levels and severe diabetic condition with a reading of 460-75. I suffered because that was karmic. My secretary even presented me with Sai Satcharita - but my sanskaras perhaps prevented me from reading it. But His grace and blessings had to lead me to it. Finally when the situation became desperate with court cases and police stations, losing properties in the court and I was left without even a house to stay in, I took shelter in a government quarter. Then one day a friend suggested that I visit the Sai temple and read Satcharita. I read it in a saptaah. Then I read it in one day. Then someone suggested I read Gurucharita. I read that too. Each story and chapter was a revealing lesson to me. I learnt a lot. Meanwhile, my health improved. Earlier I could not walk and found it very painful to stand up after squatting for a while. I was detected with cancer in both breasts. I did parikramas. The next scan projected an arrest - status quo. My health improved. My daughter secured a seat in medical school. I received the promotion that was denied to me for 23 years. One of my research articles caught the attention of the Prime Minister’s staff and I received appreciation.

Even now I get depressed because the forces that are creating difficulties are so many, but I chant the name of Sai - consciously and sub-consciously every waking minute of the day. He has finally, after testing me for years, willed so much progress in a span of three years. He will right every wrong done to me by fellow men and women. I have found the beauty of his omnipresence even in China - when I wondered when I can see a champa flower. When I returned - the first Thursday after I returned, the priest at the temple gave me a champa flower from His lotus feet. He is there when I seek Him. Without Him I would have perished.

My only worry - this morning in chapter 16 of Sri Gurucharitra, I have read about the duties of a woman. I see that only women have responsibilities and duties. Men do not. No matter what husbands may do wives must tolerate and have forbearance and patience. I have been married for 24 years. From day one I was exploited, abused, taunted, maligned, and beaten up. I had to bring up my two children with little or no support from my husband. He has neglected the children too. I have never neglected my duties as a daughter in law. They were my responsibility and I served them with pleasure. I cannot even repeat some of the things said to me. I have paid up his debts. All this is possible by Sai's Grace. But as a mortal I always craved for a little concern - some affection - it has never come through. I am working and therefore financially not on the road. But in similar situations, women who are not educated, not employed, have to find other ways. Why should they not remarry so someone better can take care of them? I know shaastras say something different. They were written when the world was not so materially oriented. Now everything is money based. So employment is important. If the husband cannot support should the wife commit suicide? What about the children? I feel strongly that some system be evolved to make life more secure for women and children and old parents.

Some of my doubts and questions are answered soon and some after a long time. But no query goes unanswered. I am developing more and more faith in Baba. I am sure He is The One!

I have a bad lifestyle and of late I have not been keeping well. In December 07, I got my medical tests done and realized that I have high cholesterol levels. Thereafter even after taking medication I did not change my food habits and continued to have fried/deep fried food, zero exercises, and indulged in drinking two/three times a week. Since the last two weeks I have not been keeping well and the doctor advised me to repeat my cholesterol tests, as he feared that my cholesterol levels might again have shot up. I had to get my medical report on THURSDAY. It was so instinctive and I told my family members that the reports would all be fine, as I will get the reports on THURSDAY. And trust me my reports actually turned out fine. Every time I have been in difficult situations, all I have done is to think about baba just ones...and voila! All my problems get solved. Thank you baba for all your blessings and help.

Few weeks back someone was inquiring about experiences with Baba after He gave up His mortal body - Couple of weeks back on early hours of Thursday morning, Baba appeared and was asking me to chant Vishnu Sahasra Namam while He was lovingly advising me on sitting posture etc for the chant. And in my sleep following His directions when I closed my eyes and chant, I see this brilliant light akin to sun brilliance and then I hear continual waves of primordial sound - OM. I was startled and opened my eyes; Baba asked me to continue with my chant. So I close my eyes again to continue and the same visio-audio experience of brilliant sun-like and with continual waves of OM getting more louder, I opened my eyes again and this time I was awake from my sleep - even today, when I think of that, voice/waves of OM and brilliance is crystal-clear. It was truly an incredible experience. And through out the day, I have been wondering what was that all about! And after couple of days, it occurred to me - that a week before that experience, I have been praying to Baba that I want to have glimpse of Vishnu's glory - because I just then heard from Bhagavad-Gita, that Krishna promised Arjuna no one ever shall see His form or had seen the way Arjuna sees Him.

We need to set aside some of our intelligence and have faith as our foremost nature and trust Baba bless us with His treasures. When we truly love Baba for the sake of love then one shouldn't have any doubt in mind similarly one should visit His temple just to see His idol out of Love and not for a wish to be fulfilled.

I had visited Shirdi last year and the whole thing is like a dream come true to me. It all started year before last when I was talking to one of my Japanese friend in Delhi and telling her about my experience in the Sai baba's temple in Delhi .She asked me if I believe in him and If wish to get the oodi from Shirdi I said sure but how and to my surprise she said she has it and she can get me in few minutes I could not believe she being Japanese how can she have it but she is a strong believer of baba and she got me the oodi the same day I was very happy to get it. After exactly one year I was talking to my same friend and I asked her if she is interested to take some classes with me next week she said sorry I am going to Shirdi. I was alone there and my husband was in US I asked her if she can arrange my ticket she said it is not possible. There are already 60 people in the group and may not be possible but I insisted on at least trying She said ok and the next morning she gave me the good news that I am booked in the same flight to Pune I was delighted. When I reached Shirdi I could not believe that I am in Shirdi .The trip that I wanted take for last 29 years happened so easily and suddenly .It is a chamatkar. Baba always has own mysterious way of calling people. Please baba always shower you kripa dristi on us. Pranam.

I am in the defence services and was on holiday in Pune, This happened about two years ago and I want to share this with all believers of Shri Sai Baba.

My wife and me were at home and at around 10pm decided to go out for dinner, accordingly we left in the car and went out without stopping anywhere reached the palace. We got back very late around 2am and I found that my Army ID card was missing. I was devastated as It is a serious offence in the Army loose your service ID and I with my wife stood and prayed in front of Sai photo at my home that I should find the ID card anyhow and begged Saibaba to help me. Accordingly my wife and me set off to search for the card that very night and retraced the whole route to the hotel and woke up the staff and searched for the card everywhere but to no avail. My career was at stake as I was due to for my promotion board and would have missed it incase I could not get the card back. Heart broken we drove back home as 4am and went to bed.

At around 11 am I got a call from a unknown person asking my name and told me he had found my ID card (I had written and pasted my address and cell no inside the card cover just before coming on leave - which I had never done so before in my entire service) The caller checked back my address and came back and delivered it at my home that same morning. Incidentally he found the card at an entirely different place where I had neither stopped nor gone that day or night at all which is even more surprising.

I wish to thank Saibaba even now after so many years for hearing my prayers and saving the day and my career. Thanks to Saibaba and may you shower your blessings on all your Bhaktas and me forever.

Its one of my personal experiences with SHIRDI SAI BABA, though its lenghty if you have paitence you can go through.

It is back in April 17th 1993 , I was doing my Intermediate 1st year days. We are devotees of Shridi Sai baba and my father happened to go to Shirdi Temple in Masab Tank Hyderabad. We are all at home self, mom, sister in Old Mallepally.  He normally attends Sai aarthi in temple and come home by 8:00 or 9:00 .  My mom was stitching that evening and she was looking healthy and hale. After stitching for a while  around 7:00 PM suddenly she got stomach ache and was not able to tolerate that pain and rushed for a near by clinic to seek a doctor's advice. Doctor happened to give her a injection (pain killer) and told that she should be fine.

The pain was uncontrollable throught out the night..she happened to go to bathroom and urinated couple of times. Throughtout the night she didnt even eat anything or drink. Early hours around 6:00 AM in the morning next day Sunday my father rushed her to admit in a hospital instead of waiting on medication any more.

 

She was admitted in hospital( a reputed one)  that is close by , as we were having board exams couldnt go and see her and my parents dont want us to get distracted in studies , my father told she is keeping well doctor is taking care of her. A week passed by there is no improvement in her health condition. Three days passed our exams are over and we thought of going and see my mom in hospital , I was shocked to see her with a swollen stomach and lying on a bed which is crossed in shape( i am not able to describe properly) but to make her conviently sleep in that position..

 

We sisters happened to tell my father to change the hospital as they are not providing better services. The doctor comes on rounds and sees her and leaves.. gave some injections, medication etc.. We are about to shift to new hospital..there was new doctor who is old experienced .. he was a new doctor who came on rounds that day the moment he saw her stomach he called for a X-ray..he didnt literally wait for a moment after he saw the X-ray and called for a operation.. With in minutes they arranged for a operation.. Doctor was not pretty much sure whether my mom's life would be saved with that operation..If it doesnt work he should go for another . He himself had his fingers crossed and was waiting for updates from nurses on my mom's condition. My mom excerted ( the gas from stomach is released and the operation was successful) , doctor after knowing this said "Thank God". He was nervous about it would succesful or not.

 

We children dont know about anything that Doctor called for operation, and operation is going on or so..have no clue as we have to prepare for exams and we might get tensed my father hided that from us ..even my grand ma was there she didnt tell us.

 

The day operation was done it was Thursday.. As our exams are over..myself and sister are praying to Shirdi Sai baba. We have a photo of baba sitting on stone..that greenish photo.. I like that photo very much..that was the only big photo we had at that time.myself and sister happened to pray in front of that photo..holding that photo in my hands.

 

This is a real miracle that happened no one else was in house, we dont know that operation was going on during that time in evening 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM..me and my sister literally saw

bright light in that photo..though it was hung to wall I could climb on my bed and hold it with hands..Its fresh in my mind..I happened to see the photo was glowing bright..person(baba) in the photo was so bright.. for few minutes..we are speechless.  We were anixously waiting for my dad to come home to pick dinner for mother and he has to have his dinner and go back to hospital again. It was late and we are waiting for him. The moment he came we told this incident and he told that she was operated.  We are very happy to know that the time she was operated it was same time baba showed his grace to both of us telling he has taken care of my mom's health. I might have not put it properly but I really felt baba's persence in that photo as if he was live and that was thursday.

 

My mom prays to God she was devotional..but I was the one who is close to Shirdi sai baba at our home. My dad happened to go with his friend to baba's temple..My dad was one who started doing aarthi at 10:00 PM.. This event in my mom's life  changed her worship completely to shirdi baba.. she started going to temple without fail on thursday's till now religously.. She does 3 aarthis at home..offering baba food in afternoon..She became more devotional towards Baba.. I love Shirdi sai baba for showering blessings on children ,had lot to go in life further..I cant imagine my life without her i dont want to think it for a even a second..

 That Doctor is GOD in our lives. no matter what if that doctor has not seen my mom on rounds or he just ignored that paitent that other doctor would take care of her..our lives would have been miserable.

BABA gave my mom life..I can say that 100% for sure he does miracles..but should have complete faith and your bhakti makes it work , if you dont have bhakti with pure heart it wouldnt have happened..

Even today in one form or other we see small small things happening in our lives but we coudlnt interpret his sayings or acts why this has happened..shouldnt have happened intially.. he has predicted that I have to be cautious about "MAYA" couple of years almost(in 1998) in one instance I didnt knew that I would pay 10 years to realise that truth..that is life that is karma.. which i am going through right now in my life .

I know its lengthy but could express at this level only.

I have had the fortune (that too by Baba's grace) to witness His blessings on our lives. I do not know where to start from but from the time when I got a seat in MBA in 1994 to getting a suitable job in an IT company in India to marrying the person of my choice to moving to US and settling down here with my husband. His blessings and grace is unmeasurable. Everything that I have in my life now is because of His presence. There were very difficult times that I faced in my life which threw me into disappointment, discouragement and disheartenment, but all I knew I could do was to pray to Baba sincerely and with all my heart. But the emphasis was also on conducting properly in terms of duties and responsibilities, doing seva as Baba emphasizes, being true in heart and mind. The list goes on and even includes the time when I performed Sai parayan for seven weeks for conceiving. We had been trying for 6 months already and my age is certainly not on my side in this (am in my early-mid thirtiees). Miraculously for me, I conceived in the 7th week of reading. But we lost it in the 4th month. We certainly have not lost the hope though. Baba will surely bless me and my husband and I sincerely remember Him now and thank Him for all the mercies he showered on our lives. All that we want now is His grace that we hold a baby soon in our arms.

Lalitha
Shirdi Sai is our Ilavelupu. We were facing a financial crunch for the last one year. We tried our best to solve it but failed. Finally, we prayed our Sai in the month of December to solve our financial problems. Sai blessed us. We disposed our property last month for good amount and cleared all our debts. Now we are free of tension. Sai has several times shown His leela for us. Last Saturday He permitted us to visit Shirdi and provided excellent darshan. How can I explain my happiness. It touched new skies after Sai darshan.

Santosh
Dear Baba, thanks for all that You have given us. We are grateful to You, we are indebted to You. Please tell us our duties we will perform them to the very best of our abilities. Baba, thank you for getting my son a seat in a good school. Please see that he has a good character, good discpline, mannners, education, concentration success, good luck and good earnings from now on for ever. Please continue to shower Your blessings on us. As promised I have expressed my gratitude to You in this newsletter and promise to fulfill all our good vows

Kasim
The day was February 16th 2008, it so happened that I was struck by some unknown fear which was killing me everyday. During that course of time I was not eating food, I hardly used to eat only two spoons of rice and leave the rest. This went on for 4 weeks and I became very weak. I have been to a counseller to ask what is wrong with me, he told me that I have to go to a psychiatrist and take some drugs to calm my restless mind. I thought of finishing my life. I just cried out the name of Sai Baba and lo He came for my rescue that very moment I left to Shirdi as if Baba has called me. I went to Shirdi and sat in Dwarakamai asking Him only one thing what is wrong with me. I sat there for six full hours and in that time for every one minute I had His prasad which filled my hungry stomach that was starving for four weeks. It was like Baba saying to me, you haven't ate anything for these many days I am seeing you and I will feed you. Since then I have become normal without taking any drugs. After that Baba called me to Shirdi within a span of two weeks and I had His wonderful darshan. Sai, all my life is dedicated to You. The lord of lords You have come to save the life of this servent of yours.

Pradip
Nearly one month before, my wife complained about eye problem. Her left eye was a little bit red and there was cyst in it. We went to ophthalmologist and he gave steroid for a week. He told that the redness of eye will probably go by the application of steroid but I am not sure about cyst. She did as per the doctor's advice and after a week, we visited the doctor again. He examined and said the redness had gone and advised three days one drop steroid. After three days, we visited the doctor to seek his advice on the operation of cyst. I was sacred of operation even then it was small. We were waiting in doctors clinic. I was massaging Baba's paada in my ring for nearly 45 minutes in doctors clinic and saying Om Sai Sri Sai Jay Jay Sai for 45 minutes requesting Him to avoid operation of cyst. Since I am Baba's sevak for nearly two decades I have in mind that Baba will listen to me and the doctor will say as the cyst has become too small , it will go on its own and there is no need of any treatment. After 45 minutes, doctor came, made the detail examination, and advised the cyst has become too small, it do not need any intervention. Now the cist has gone. Baba did listen to my prayer.

Harini
Because of our son's school, we decided to sell it since over a year. Although, I had full faith in Baba about scope of our home being sold, probably He wanted to test our Saburi and because of sloppy real estate market, there were not many showings happening. still I was hanging in there looking fwd for His daya. In January 2008, we moved out to a apartment to market our vacant home. Our home was very close to major employer Dell; they started mass layoffs too, early part of this year, which added to existing real estate woes. This led more homes in market and limited buyers interest in that area. So things started feeling edgy and I got little restless. I was confident that Baba surely will take of us but to shun my anxiety, I sought help from Baba for some kind of indication about when we will get through this worry? Some time around end of March or beginning of April 2008, I prayed with full heart and asked for reply from a book in Telugu called 'Baba- prashnalu javabulu'.To my surprise, the message I looked at from the book has gist 'your work will be done in 2 months' and remaining part of message I don't recall as I write at his moment. That message made me feel much relieved and I was very sure Baba would certainly make this happen by selling our home by June. Although confident, do not know why but I did not share this with anyone including my spouse. We had to re-list the home with new price adding more incentives to motivate buyers. Still nothing much happened. But, in month of May one prospective buyer from California was keen on that house. My thoughts were neutral about this new development, as we heard of many happening where buyers back out on closing day too. Everything happened smoothly with Sai's grace where buyer had no financial problems and our home got closed successfully on May 31st 2008. We had to sell with chuck of loss but, I am more than sure in this bleak market, this amazing event would not have happened without the intervention of Sai.

I have lot of experiences with SAI BABA to share, one of them.. This is my personal first experience happened to me..
It was when I was in 10th standard..I was bit nervous of passing my Physics Pre-final exams..if I dont get through Pre-final i wouldnt get my hall ticket for final exams..Its do or die situation for me.. Though I read well I was not sure I would get through before day of exam.. I was done with my preparation , but was nervous would i pass so I wrote sai naamam countlessly before exam day.  I gave the exam next day..when I got my results i dont remember i topped or not but got good marks..to my suprise..though i was scared till i got results whether i would get through...the miracle what happened was i attempted all questions immaterial whether choice is given.. teacher gave marks for every answer i couldnt believe that..and it gave me good marks. I felt it was only because of SAI. had it been that teacher realised that she shdnt give marks for choice answers i would have got less marks .its sai miracle that she didnt realise that she shdnt give me..my all answers were half way through..and got half  marks for each question answered..it was first time I wrote sai naamam.

I started worshipping SAI BABA at the age of 13 , it started out with a miracle.  Some one from our family friends happened to give us a small baba minature which is in a glass piece which normally one would give to others along with prasadam when they visited shirdi. We used to keep this in our pooja room.  once my father left for his home town and was travelling in train , at home me and my sister were watching news in English  unexpectedly there was a tragedy happened to the train he was travelling , we very well remember the train number  7056 as we often go to our home town , the moment the new reader said that the train left the tracks and people was hospitalised. I didnt know what to do we all 3 (mom,sis,self) were in shock and back in our home town there is no phone communication to contact. We were all tensed to find out what happened.I was nervous inside my mind and heart ..but dont know what made to go and touch that small piece of sai baba glass minature and offered a flower to him..and prayed to save my father's life.. I was just chanting sai sai..for some time.. infront of sai. It was night time when we got to know this news.. my mind was blank..and expecting to hear from my grand parents next day morning..we got to know that my father is safe and he did return back immediately..he was there at the spot when train accident took place..but that was the first instance..in my life as well in my family we started worshipping SAI BABA.. At that time I prayed to BABA that I would do his pooja every thursday without fail if you save my father..
As I was nt aware of aarathi means a song.. I used to think it is normally aarathi we give to GOD with camphor..I used to get up early on Thursday's , take head bath and give aarathi(camphor) for few minutes and some one gave the sai satcharithra.. at the end there are few lines which says to sing when we give aarathi..I used to read that few lines and give aarathi..I did it for few years...later I got myself busy with studies and was on and off with this..but never forgot him..It was me who used to worship intially ..my mom never showed interest of worshipping baba not that she never liked.. it was my experience i used to do. Later my dad some how got habituated to go to BABA's temple and attend aarathi on thursdays.. never it didnt interest my mom even my dad used to do. Once she had her own experience of BABA saving her life from appendicitis though it is was very major operation. This was another miracle of BABA on us . I explained in this thread earlier..She started worshipping BABA since then by singing kaakada aarthi daily..since then she never stopped singing aarthi till date though she sings 3 aarthi's from morning afternoon and evening. Its been almost 12 years now..I wish BABA gives her the energy to continue to do the same.

Sairam!
I have a friend who is a Chartered Accountant. He is from a very good family. They were seeking alliances for him, for quite some time.  Last month, he visited Shirdi. Immediately after that, his marriage got fixed. One more surprising element is that, the girl is his distant relative and lives in a place closer to his.Why, I'm stating this here is that, if it is from known family means, marriage could have been fixed earlier. This is Baba's Miracle.

Shri Baba Converts "No" into "Yes"

Four years preceding 1976, much though I wished to appear for B.A. Examination; I could not do so. For some or other urgent domestic problems invariably cropped up at the examination time compelling me to give up the idea of doing the Examination.

 

Finally, I resolved that come what may, I would do it in October, 1976. Accordingly, I saw my Officer and spoke to him of my plans. He bluntly told me that he would not sanction my leave and advised me to appear in 1977. Despite my Officer's "No" I made an application for leave and sincerely prayed Shri Baba to sanction it.

 

On the day I wrote my application, the Chairman of our Bombay Port Trust, visited our Office and was pleased with the Work-diary maintained by me. The Officer, who, had declined to sanction my leave had accompanied the Chairman with our Head of Department. He too was pleased. Next day, I was informed that my leave was sanctioned by the Officer who had earlier refused to do so.

I thanked Shri Baba for converting “No” into “Yes”.

Pujan
Evreyday I read stories about Baba's miracle and it fills my eyes with tears just to think how lucky we all are to have our Saimaa guiding us in evrey step we take. Today is 15th July, my birthday and as a way of thanking my Saimaa from the bottom of my heart for always being there for me, I would like to share my story. I had a dream on 3rd June where Shirdi Baba was asking me to feed Him ladoo. I fed Him sumptuously in my dream. Next morning when I woke up, I took it as a hint that may be He wants me to feed Him ladoo. But as there are hardly any Indian sweets shop near where I live I could not offer Him any. All I had with me at that time was this small packet of cornflakes. As I always offer anyting I eat to Him first, so before I went to bed at night I offered Him the small packet of cornflakes saying Swami, your daughter dose not have any ladoo please accept this as her love. Next morning when I woke up wonder of wonder the whole cornfalkes along with the packet had dissappeared. I bursted into tears. Thank you Saimaa for always being there for your devotees. I love You from the bottom of my heart.

How Baba Redeems His Pledge

"Cast all your burdens on me and I shall bear them" was the pledge given by Shri SAIBABA, for the benefit of humanity. The devotee has to do his part in a spirit of complete surrender, and BABA had never failed HIS devotees. Since nearly four decades, I and the members of my family have been experiencing the redemption of this pledge by BABA. There was never a problem in our lives, which could not be solved by HIS grace. There were innumerable instances when we turned to Him for succor and guidance and we were never disappointed. I would crave the indulgence of the kind readers, to mention two or three of several such instances,

 

In 1959 my only son had appeared for his B. E. mechanical, final examination and came home to spend his summer vacation with us. I found him unusually brooding. When pressed, he revealed the cause. He was worried because he did not fare well in his examination. He was expecting his first ever failure in his academic career. Since childhood he was a very sensitive child. I prayed to BABA to come to his help and vowed to send a certain amount to Shirdi Sansthan, for poor feeding. A few days later, I had a dream in which BABA was sitting on the branch of a huge tree, the top of which was in the clouds. HE stretched HIS hand towards me from the sky demanding HIS money. After I woke up the daily paper came in the morning and I was happy to find my boy's number in the list of successful candidates. I immediately sent the amount to Shirdi.

 

A few years back all the members of our family went to Tirupati in our car for the tonsure ceremony of my grand-son. One night, prior to our departure, I had a dream. In the dream, we were traveling in our car along a very narrow forest road. Our journey was obstructed by a big tree which fell right across the narrow road. There was no way of by passing the road block. We tried to remove the tree; but it did not budge. While we were waiting in despair, a villager wearing soiled and torn clothes came there. He laughed at us, coming to know about our predicament and questioned me "You are so many and why don't you all   make   an   effort to remove   the tree".    I told him that we have tried and   failed.     He said he would assist us and we all tried again. Our contribution was of no consequence, as he pulled the tree from the road with   ease.  I felt grateful to him and thanked   him   profusely   and   offered   him   some of the eatables   which   we had in the car.   He ate them   with relish and wanted some more.    We gave him some more.    He again wanted some more and   thus   he   ate all,   that was available in the car. After that he again   asked   for   something   more and I told him that nothing was left   with us.     He   laughed at me and accuses me of telling a falsehood. I was shocked by this rudeness. Then he said "Search your   grandson's pocket". When I did so found two or three paper wrapped sweets, which the boy always carried in his pocket.    I took them and gave them to him.     He ate them and drank water.    From this I could know that he was no ordinary man.    The child folded his hands before him and he blessed the boy and advised us to start at once as we had a long distance to cover.   We all felt very hungry; but there was nothing available, which we could eat.   After a journey of 30 or 40 miles in hot sun we reached a small   wayside village   where there was a small tea-stall and we stopped in front   of it.     We expected to get   in it   only   tea   and some   crude bread.   It   was a pleasant surprise to us, when   the stall   keeper   informed us,   that he had prepared food for us as per the   instructions   of a villager, who came to his shop and   informed   him of our   arrival a few hours thence.  That was the dream I had.

 

While we were returning from Tirupati on our way back to Hyderabad, a few miles this side of Kurnool, the tiered end suddenly broke and the car began to travel down a ghat slope. We felt helpless as the steering wheel had no control. I knew that it was going to be our end. In desperation I lifted both my hands in an earnest prayer to BABA and requested HIM to spare at least the child. To my surprise the momentum slackened and the car headed towards a tree standing there. The front bumper touched the trunk of the tree and the vehicle came to a stop. I was surprised to note that, the tree was none other than the one which I saw in my dream, in a fallen state across the forest road. Even the front bumper had not been damaged. With the help of the driver of a car, that was passing that way, a wrench was improvised for the broken tierod end and we managed to reach Kurnool, where the necessary replacement was got done and we could reach Hyderabad 4 or 5 hours late. This was BABA'S grace. That villager was no other than BABA.

 

According to an astrological prediction I should have had a fatal illness in my 62nd year. I was ready for the event, but did not reveal this to any one of my family. Some days before the completion of my 62nd year, one night my wife had a dream. A Rishi appeared in her dream and directed her to tell me, that I should chant MRITYUNJAYA MANTRAM 108 times every morning. My wife does not know how to pronounce the name of that MANTRAM even now. When she had that dream, she immediately woke up and noted on a small piece of paper the name of that Mantram, with incorrect spelling. Next morning she told me about it and I could know that it was the hand of BABA guiding my destiny. As a matter of fact it was my wife who had brought SAI BABA POOJA into our house in 1940. I am now sixty eight. I am reconciled to any eventuality, but I am grateful to BABA for HIS grace showered on me and my family members.

 

There was and is never a moment in my life, when BABA is not in my thoughts. I feel HE pervades our home. I feel HIM and breathe HIM. To my knowledge He had never let any one down.

Miracle of the Statue of Shri Sai Baba

It was in November 1977 that I went to my brother, Shri B. Madhava Rao, a Porcelain Factory Officer, in Malleswaram at Bangalore. He is an atheist and an out and out materialist, who shuns any talk on God.

 

In the course of our general talk, be suddenly said, "I will give you a gift worth a million dollars. You care for no money or material, but you will welcome this most". I could not understand anything from his talk as I care for nothing and welcome anything, yet, anxious as I was to know what he meant? I asked him what that precious gift was. He then replied, "What you most care and welcome in your life-SAI BABA-Your God"

 

Derisive as it appeared, the offer comes from an avowed atheist. I was not shocked, but amused at first, but later baffled over a materialist's bent of mind—incomprehensible—indeed!

 

In my next visit to him in December 1977, when I reminded him of his gift to me, he said, "It was not such an easy task for me to send Sai Baba to you, but come He will, shortly".

 

In the meantime, I went to Madras and being anxious, I wrote to my brother if my Sai Baba was ready and to my joy and surprise, he replied stating that Sai Baba was ready awaiting me to take delivery. My joy knew no bounds.

 

Immediately, I cancelled all my pending programmes and hastened to Bangalore on 22-2-1978.

 

The next day, 23-2-1978, Thursday, I rushed to my brother's house in the evening and saw to my great joy, a Porcelain Statue of Sai Baba, most realistic and attractive. The Statue is one foot high, seated on a black pedestal, clad in red dhoti and upper cloth, in porcelain, at the sight of which I felt Sai Baba is physically present   before   me,   the   kind of   feeling   could understood only by the Bhakta dedicated to HIM.

 

I expressed my profound pleasure and gratitude to my brother, Madhava Rao, for the rare, priceless and precious gift, offered to me I brought the statue home and installed HIM in Sri Sai Kutirat 8.00 p. m.-on a-Thursday, with the usual rituals and commenced my daily worship with deeper and firmer devotion and with added enthusiasm.

 

It also may be noted   here, that   this   incident hardly 25 days before my 67th birthday took place. I may also state here that the statue came into my brother's house on 9-2-1978(Thursday) and left his house on 23-2-1978 a Thursday thus staying with him for 3 Thursdays. The statue cost my brother Rs. 20.62 as per his factory Cash Bill No. 4247 dated 9-2-1978.

It is really a pose at to how Shri Sai Baba inspired and induced my brother Madhava Rao to get this statue made for me, apathetic as he is for any spiritual learning’s.

 

I asked my brother, how he got this statue made for me, he told me that there is a mould of Sai Baba in his factory to be cast only for some Very Big Persons. On requisition under special permission from Delhi Chief Office, the statue is made for them, on rare occasions. He said the idea of gifting to me the statue suddenly struck him and he ventured to get the sanction from Delhi with his influence. But, a small Section Officer as he is, in the Factory, he was not sure of getting the sanction, until he got it, which he said was my luck; and as such he could not reveal the matter with confidence to me. In my subsequent visits, he used to say that the matter was under way.

 

To sum up this miracle, it is pointed out to the Sai Devotees, that only when a devotee is possessed by HIM and that the devotee is already on the path of His glory with devotion, seeking liberation from the worldly attachment and ultimate salvation, that Shri Sai Baba comes to the devotee in some form or other to protect him and jot otherwise. ., , .

 

As a proof thereof, I could state with confidence, that when a Bhakta is possessed by His grace only,' he will be allowed or Initiated, to His sacred Shrine at Shirdi, as in my case, when I have the fortune to visit Shirdi every year since last 20 continuous years without break for my annual prayers at His sacred feet, and every year, I go there, I get recharged by Shri Sai Baba for increased devotion with added vigor and enthusiasm, and nearer to liberation and for merger into HIM.

 

Further, it is too well known to Sai devotees and a proven fact with Sai Baba that unless and until He calls His devotees, they dare not and cannot step in His holy Shrine with all their hectic efforts. Likewise, unless one has His grace, he will not be with the devotee too. As such my brother, Madhava Rao also, though an atheist and a materialist, some inexplicable, phenomena must have worked on him, that drove him to this task, and that Shri Sai Baba stayed in his house for 3 Thursdays, he should be lucky to have His blessings, unknown to my brother for the PUNYAM of his previous birth. This has its own significance.

 

And again, why and how I got Sai Baba without my thought, imagination, or   attempt for it I also did   not know that there was such mould in my brother's factory and that it could be got so easily; why He came in this form to my house at  my 67th birth year is only known to Him and that too through a materialist and atheist, who would not allow my puja to Shri Sai Baba in his house, for that matter, worship of any   God   is vehemently opposed and prohibited   in   his  dwelling. Nevertheless,   Sai Baba alone was permitted to remain with him - How?   A wonder that has no explanation

 

In conclusion, I may be allowed to state with due apologies to H. H. Radhakrishna Swamiji, the apostle of Shri Sai Baba, President, All India Sai Samaj and Founder President of Shri Sai Centre at Bangalore, has installed in May 1978, at Sai Centre at Bangalore, a life size statue of Sai Baba in Marble Stone, while I did so with a porcelain statue of a smaller size - of course, size is no concern or consequence for devotion - almost simultaneously at a very short interval.

 

My daily prayer to my Lord Shri Sai Nath is that so long there is life in me, to allow me to pray to His sacred LOTUS FEET and grant my prayer to merge me in HIM, while at prayer, as a token of my devotion and dedication to HIM.

 

It may be noted that while both the statues at Shri Sai Centre and at Shri Sai Kutir, at Bangalore, were almost simulta­neously installed at very short intervals, the installation at Shri Sai Kutir was devoid of all pomp, splendor and publicity at Shri Sai Centre.

 

But his Holiness Radhakrishna Swamiji is a great Saint, an apostle of Sai Baba, to whom I bow in reverence and devotion as a humble Bhakta seeking his Blessings.

I hope, that this article would interest and impress all Sai Devotees.

A Surprise Gift from Sadguru Sainath Maharaj

It was the year 1952 when one of my well-wisher subordinate employee named Shri NERURKAR of Bandra (West) advised me to go in SHARNAGAT of SHRI SAI BABA OF SHIRDI, Who will, as per his belief, definitely redress any and every of my grievance, solve our all difficulties, give us what we deserve and above all give us peace of mind, provided we surrendered to Him in full heart and soul.

 

Those days we were very badly in need of residential accommodation I along with my wife, Shama Tikoo, made up our mind to go to SHIRDI and fall at the lotus feet of SAI BABA. One fine day HE seems to have felt our heart-throbs and called us to SHIRDI as it was a known fact that without HIS wish nothing can happen in spite of any and every effort is put in. An invisible verbal order came and we set out for SHIRDI. Though this was our first experience; we had some difficulty in reaching Shirdi which we took to be His test of our endurance and belief in HIM. We reached there safely, passed some days in Shirdi attended the Palki procession as well, on Thursday night. We saw what we had never seen till that day, that the Samadhi Mandir, Gurusthan, Dwarkamai and Chawdi are open to one and all without caste and creed which is allowed in no other temple, church, masjid or gurudwara. Above all we were rather surprised to see that each person, a child, young or old, a male or female, can go up to the SINGHASAN OF MAHARAJA ADHIRAJ SHRI SAINATH and touch His feet, garland Him, put on any offering to Him. This direct access to the Sai Murti, of any one, rich or poor, sick or healthy, is unique, we could see. Above this all, we felt as if Baba is talking to us and He gave us peace of mind when we used to sit before Him in the Samadhi Mandir hall, at Dwarkamai, at Chawdi, at Gurusthan or even in the Lendibag.

 

After about a week's stay there we returned to Bombay and "LO WHAT A SUPRISE   SAI BABA HAD   FOR US ON OUR RETURN" He gave it to us, as one of my another subordinate Shri Bhogilal Lolania informed me that there was a double room vacant in the Building he was residing in and I should immediately see the rent collector Shri Dubejee before any one else meets him for it. I accordingly met Shri Dubejee same evening and the problem of our accommodation which could not be solved since 1948, was solved at a minutes meeting with the said rent collector, but only when we returned from Shirdi with the grace and blessings of SAI BABA, on Whose feet we had fallen at Shirdi and had completely surrendered our heart and soul to HIM, the SADGURU SAIBABA.

 

This leela of providing us surprise gift in the form of accommodation increased our faith in Him and His Bhakti and as such I along with my wife Shama Tikoo, took HIM to be our Father, Mother and Guru as well as every thing in our life. We have entrusted ourselves to HIM to HIS Grace and His mercies. We are His and only His and He has every right to do with us what is so destined and in store for us that we deserve. It is because of this all, I have been writing, composing and singing Bhajans of His grace and BHAKTI BHAVS which He and only He creates in my mind, brain and thought. It is He only who gives me inspiration and power to write, compose and sing these Bhavs in the form of the Bhajans. HIS LEELA is very UPRUMPAR (endless). We have full faith in Him and in all gods, saints, avatars, fakeers, and sannyasees but all through HIM AND IN HIM ONLY, as we see every one of them in HIM only.

I would like to narrate a Miracle that happened in our family. It happened in the year 1999. I was recently married. My parents visited me. I had two copies of " Sai Satcharitha" with me, one in English and the other one in Tamil. My mother took, the tamil version from me and was reading the same in the train, for the first time. That time, my sister-in-law got admitted in hospital, for delivery. Doctors did a scan and said that child was still-born and heart beat is not there. But my mother read Chapters 11 and 15, next day, a male child was born on Wednesday(weighing 1.6 kg). The kid was a premature baby. His name is Sairam. He is Baba's gift to us. He is in his 4 th standard now and he is very brilliant and very good in drawing. One day very funny thing happened, he was barely three or four. That time, we never used to give him outside food. One day, inside a closed room I was eating Vada. He immediately opened the room and started crying saying, "I'm Sairam, I'm like Sai Baba,will you eat without giving to me?". I was reminded of Sudhama's incident in Satcharitha.

Kalpa - Vriksha Shri Sai

On 29-8-76, I reached Shirdi at the lotus feet of Shri Sai Nathji Maharaj. It was after a period of one and a half year that I was allowed by HIM to come to His lotus feet, my last visit being in March 75.

On reaching there, I contacted Shri Shinde, who very kindly guided me to keep my luggage in room No. 8, above the parcel cloth depot and that some other room would be allotted to me after the Noon Aarti. I followed the attendant and when I came in front of room No. 8, I was wonderstruck and overjoyed to see that Shri Sai Nathji Maharaj was Himself there to receive me. (A big colour portrait of Babaji is there above the door of this room and no other room). After Noon Aarti, I kept my luggage in the newly allotted room and then went to Kopargaon to have the sacred Godavari bath and returned by evening.

 

On 30-8-76, after attending Kakad Aarti and Abhishek, I went in Dwarkamai at 9 a.m. and started my Saptahik Path of Hindi Shri Sai Satcharita. Before starting reading, I prayed to Shri Sai that this parayan of mine should not be mere reading, but I must have His Grace definitely. After bowing at His lotus Feet, I started the Path. Hardly had I read one or two slokas of the first chapter, some flower leaves fell upon the "Granth", and when I looked up, an elderly Mahatman, having Ramuaam cloth upon his shoulders, was standing there. He applied Tilak on my forehead too and thus Shri Sai Himself blessed my Parayan. Later I came to know that the elderly Mahatman was none other than Shri Martand Bhagat, son of Late Shri Mhalsapaty, the Great Bhakta of Shri Sai Baba.

 

How and why I had come to Shirdi and why this Saptahik Path was done by me in Shri Dwarkamai, all this will be narrated in some next issue of Shri Sai Leela.

 

While doing the Parayan, I saw that Bhaktas were putting a little part of their offerings to Shri Sai Babaji in the Kolamb kept outside Shri Sai's Dhuni, which was being taken away as Prasadam by other Bhaktas.

 

And here Shri Sai Baba is "Kalpa-Vriksha": I demanded from Babaji this very Prasadam from the Kolamb, asking Him to give the same to me. And that neither I would pick it up from the Kolamba myself nor I would demand from any Bhakta, offering the same to Shri Babaji. I prayed in this manner and was confident that He will surely fulfill my desire.

 

Here I may point out that daily after the evening Aarti, I used to go to Abdul Baba's Cottage, opposite Chawadi, for some time.

 

On 31-8-76 (Tuesday) evening, one Conductor, who was also sitting in the Cottage, told me that I will have some unusual experience in Dwarkamai on Thursday (2-9-76). He further added that these words should not be taken as untrue, as he was also son of a PIR-FAKIR and was forced to utter there words.

 

On 1-9-76 (Wednesday) evening, in the same Cottage, one Panditji (Astrologer) also said to me that next morning (Thursday) I will have Shri Sai's Grace in Shri Dwarkamai. He too, added that he did not say this because of his knowledge, but a divine message was conveyed to me through him.

 

On 2-9-76 (Thursday) I went lo Dwarkamai at 8-30 a. m, after usual worship in the Samadhi Mandir and sat there. One Bhakta, Shri A. S. Manohar from Dadar, used to do parayan of Marathi Shri Sai Satcharita and after him I used to start my "path" at 9 a. m. Next to Shri Manohar, was sitting another Bhakta, next to him I, and next to me two other Bhaktas. In other words out of five, I was in the centre, two being on my each side. Just at this time one Bhakta comes, places his Thali of Naivedya (Halwa) in front of Babaji in Dwarkamai, takes a handful out of it and keeps the same in the Kolamb. Turns back, picks up his Thali and gets down the steps of Dwarkamai. Walking four or five steps, stops, turns back, climbs the steps of Dwarkamai, again places his Thali in front of Shri Babaji, comes to the Kolamb, picks up the prasadam (kept by himself), comes straight to me and offers the same to me. I stretch my hands and accept the same with reverence, with tears of joy in my eyes (DHANYA DHANYA SADGURU SHRI SAI NATHAJI MAHARAJ), Again the Bhakta picks up his Thali, gets down, goes four five steps, thinking something nods his head and moves on.

 

At the time of the evening Aarti, I again caught sight of that same Bhakta and approached him and thanked him for giving me Prasadam in Dwarakamai in the morning, whereupon he replied that he himself was unable to understand as to what made him pick up Prasadam from the Kolamb as that is against the usual practice. He thought over that again and again and came to the conclusion that Shri Sai Himself had wished all this and got the same done through him accordingly.

 

Shri Sai's beloved Bhaktas, during this visit, I experienced that it rained cats and dogs of His Grace and Blessings, which I will try to narrate by and by through the columns of Shri Sai Leela.

 

The publishing of all this is of course late, because I thought in my mind that all this BLISS is my personal property. But after getting inspiration by reading Shri Sai Satcharita, I have come to the conclusion that this sort of behavior is narrow mindedness which should be given up. And such experiences should be given in Shri Sai Leela, so that other Bhaktas may also enjoy His Grace.

 

Bow to Shri Sai Nathji Maharaj at His Lotus Feet May He shower His Blessings upon us all and grant us pure Devotion and Absolute Surrender.

Sai Charan Das.

Pathankot

Shri Sai Baba's Divine Grace

My first experience of the miracle of Shri Sai was in the year 1942. I was posted as Medical Officer of Civil Centre at Ananthapur in June, during Second World War After taking charge of the post, leaving my wife and child in traveler’s bunga­low; I went in search of a house. Sri Hanumanthrao, a leading Criminal Advocate of the place, whom I met, was very kind to promise to get me a suitable house within a few days. Because I happened to be a doctor, he was anxious to take me to his brother-in-law's house, Shri Ramaswamy, an Advocate and an ardent devotee of Shri Saibaba. The time was 7 p. m.

 

Shri Ramaswamy was sitting in the puja room and praying to Baba with implicit devotion. His wife and other members of the family were in the front varandah crying loudly. After enquiry, I learnt that their daughter Pramila a girl of 6 years had sustained severe burns all over the body upto neck because her pavadai had caught fire when she was doing Pradakshinam to Tulasi Brindavan where a number of mud oil lamps were lit on account of Uttana Dwadashi (festival of Shri Krishna at Brindavan). This had happened about ten days back. Her body was full of foul smelling pus, having lots of maggots (young worms of flies). She was being treated at the local Government hospital. She was unconscious for nearly six days with high temperature and had not taken even a drop of water during the period. As her con­dition deteriorated, the relatives were asked to take the girl home in a serious condition in anticipation of an early end. That was the scene at my entry. As soon as I entered the house, Shri Hanumanthrao introduced me as a doctor from Madras. Shri Ramaswamy, who was praying in the puja room, immediately came out and exclaimed, "Shri Saibaba has sent the medical aid at the critical time." He asked me immediately to examine the girl and treat the case suitably. I was dumbfounded because I had not heard of any Saibaba before and more so it appeared that the condition of the patient was beyond any human help. However, being a doctor, I had to face the emergency. I went back to traveler's bungalow to get my medical bag and inform my wife not to worry about me if I return late in the night on account of this emergency.

 

The patient had 104° temperature, pulse was rapid but feeble. She was not responding to any kind of stimuli. The pus was smelling very badly as it was full of maggots. After pro­tecting my nose with cloth, I cleaned the whole body, removed manually with forceps a number of maggots (nearly 180) and applied gauze soaked in cod liver oil over the wound. The girl did not show any sign of life during the whole process which took nearly 3 hours. As only sulfa drugs were available then, I got some M and B 693 tablets, powdered them and asked the mother to give it with honey in case the girl awoke in the night. Shri Ramaswamy applied Shri Sai's udhi on the forehead.

 

Next morning I was sure that the girl would not be alive. With great trepidation in my heart, I went to their house to know the position. There I saw the miracle of Shri Sai for the first time in my life. The girl was awake, had asked for water and milk in the night, which were given. Her general condition was very much improved. The temperature had touched normal and pulse full. She answered my questions clearly and fluently.

 

Everyday I used to visit their house to clean and dress the wounds. At the end of six months, the entire burnt area of her body had fully healed up, covered with healthy skin, without any trace of a scar. Baba's grace was primarily responsible for snatching that young girl from the jaws of death and I was only a tool in His hands. Soon after that, I was transferred to another centre in Madras.

 

Shri Ramaswamy told everyone that I was sent to Ananthapur by Baba to treat and save his daughter's life. When I left Ananthapur Sri Ramaswamy invited me and my wife to his house and gave, us a photo of Shri Saibaba and a packet of udhi, after a sumptuous meal. He asked me to worship Baba from that day. But my mind was still not receptive at that time to get His blessings. Being young and full of ego, I entirely forgot about the whole incident for nearly a decade when I was again reminded by Shri Sai.

 

I shall narrate my next experience of Baba with His blessings in the succeeding article in Shri Sai Leela.

 

With satsanga pranams to all knowing Shri Sai's incarnation of Sathya, Dharma, Prema and Shanthi.

P. S.

Pramila I learnt now is married and leading a very happy life with her husband and children in Hyderabad. We were extremely happy to meet her when she came to our house to invite us personally for her marriage some years back.

Baba as a Rescuer

By R. Radhakrishnan

Real love is desire less and motiveless. One with pure love thinks: "I love him for no reason at all. I suffer because of that love, yet I still love. If I feel well, or don't feel well, if He looks at me, or if He doesn't look at me If He is kind or if He is cruel, I can never think anything but good of Him.

-          Sri Ramakrishna

 

“Rinanubandha" is the main factor for becoming Sai Baba's devotees. Being a mortal, I do not know since how many births I have been connected with Him. But, in this birth, He has taken me under His care as a child. I was in charge of the foundry shop stores, Hubli and I had to take half a day casual leave on 14th April ‘52. As planned, my assistant passed out some valuable materials to a thief, who was caught outside railway workshops by the railway Police. My assistant involved me in the police case. I was taken to the police station from my house for interrogation. The Police Inspector wouldn't believe me though I pleaded that the theft took place in my absence. He said, you being in charge should have handed over the materials to your assistant and gone on leave, duly obtaining his acknowledgement in the Tally sheets. Is it humanly possible to hand over thousands of items in half-a-day? I kept quite knowing that no argument will satisfy the police as they were after money. I was put in a "lock-up" and the Police Sub-Inspector gave orders to the Constable to whip me. I was not in good health. I thought I would collapse on that day. At least let me remember Sai Baba and cried out aloud, "Oh, Sainath" when the police raised his hands to whip me and swooned. After four hours, I regained my consciousness. I opened my eyes and looked around with fear. I was made to sit in a comfortable chair and the Sub-Inspector, Shri Kulkarni, was looking at me kindly and said "When you uttered Baba's name, I immediately caught hold of the constable's hand and prevented him from beating you. I am also a devotee of "Shirdi Sai Baba" and saw Baba in you. It is needless to say that I was released from the police station with great honor and the real culprit was duly punished.

 

In January 1960, I had to go to Madras with my family. We boarded the night train at Hubli and we alighted at Guntakal the next morning to catch Dadar Express bound for Madras. The train, when arrived at Guntakal was overcrowded. Somehow, I put my family in a 'ladies compartment' and I was traveling standing on the foot-board. When the train was approaching a bridge near Gooty station, I got exhausted and got giddiness and I had no sleep in the previous night and there was no time to have "breakfast" at Guntakal. I thought I would die as my hands were paining and I could hold the handles no longer, I immediately remembered "Bhagwan Sai" with tears. What a wonderful power Baba is. He immediately responded by giving enough strength and courage to hold the handle firmly. At Gooty station many passengers got down and I got a comfortable seat in the compartment and I traveled to Madras, chanting Baba's name and meditating on Him throughout the journey.

 

Once, I do not remember the exact date and day, I had to cross a platform in the workshop while on duty, where materials are unloaded for repairs. The railway Khalasis used to put up a danger board on the platform to prevent workers crossing the platform and throw heavy materials on the platform from inside the van. But, on that day the danger board was not put up when I crossed the platform to reach the latrine (which was by the side of the platform). The Khalasis inside the material van threw a big iron rod on the platform. Being a heavy material, normally it should have come straight and hit me direct resulting in my death. But, wonder of wonders, the rod took a turn (like a rocket) from the usual path, flew over and dropped far away from me I was wonderstruck and bowed to "Sai Deva" mentally.

 

To conclude, I am not a great bhaktha but only an ordinary mortal still unable to control the six inner enemies and ego. As sinners are not to be rejected, Sai Baba, as kind mother, treating equally has taken me under His benign care.

Om Sai ram, I wanted to share my experiences with you all. Baba is such a wonderful god that he saved my life lot many times. We were very poor, even needed to depend on my parents for my infant son's milk, back in India. Baba has given a lift in our life's and now we are able to afford my children's fees in international school, which are about 3.5 to 4 lakhs per year. In 2001, I underwent a surgery for my thyroid gland, and in the biopsy reports the tumor taken out from my thyroid revealed cancer cells. I was 25 that time, and my son is just 1 and half year old. I cried and cried, prayed to baba, asked him to cure me. I did sapthaha and gave two aaratis through out 7 days. I was asked to undergo nuclear scan within one week to know further, and do you know what the result was. Certainly all Sai devotees must know this that my test reports were negative. From 2001 to till date. I have been undergoing the scanning and blood tests for every 6 months. And still Baba's mercy is showering on me continuously. We are blessed with another girl baby too. Thanks to almighty baba for his miracles in my life.

Dear All Devotees, I just want to share with you all the eternal power of Sai Baba...there was an incidence in 2002, when someone came in my house door. He addressed himself as messenger of Sai Baba...He told all about my future to my mother and family and also told some factual thing about the other members which was unknown. I wasn't there in the house and was posted in other city. I therefore got to know about that from my family members and all those things, which were predicted about me. If I see 5 years down the line and retrospect it. Whatever was told happened as it was predicted. You all wouldn't believe. But it happened as was predicted really. I have become Sai Bhakt ..he is there in my every breath...He guides me and my ways get carved out ..there have been instances where I would take my way and desperate thinking on my own way. but it doesn't happen I get sad for a short while. then I see I am having push factor to do something and the way is carved out amazingly planned and impact.. At the end of day I could feel the impacts in positive and definite results in long run...I have surrendered myself in his hand and doing good as my path is taking his guidance. Recently, I have had bad times...I was very disturbed.. he came in my dream when I was in the peak of crisis situation...he came in my dream and blessed me in disguise...I woke up and from the same day situations changed and I am telling you if you are his devotee he comes to you in whatever form there to help you in bad times...My life is surrendered to Sai Baba..I have done Sai Darshan in Shirdi and would like to visit soon once he calls me again. Last but not the least its his wish that I am sharing with you all. May Sai baba bless you all!!Sabka Malik Ek -Sai Baba...

I have been married for about 9 years and we started to think about have a kid about 3 or 4 years back. We went to the doctor and got tested as a routine check up and found out that my wife has a PCOS, due to which it was difficult to conceive. The fertility treatment started and we tried all possible remedies including puncturing ovaries, dieting, Clomid, IUI and were finally referred to fertility specialist. Specialist said everything thing was fine with us and was not really sure about why it was not happening. After 3 months, we went back to the Specialist and she briefed us with the IVF (in-vitro fertilization) process. We took all the instructions and we have been praying to Baba all the while and at times we have even questioned about out faith and his blessings for us. I was so mad about praying everyday to baba and asking him about the same thing over and again. I finally said that I am not going to pray to him any more, if he doesn't bless us. Well, it had to happen as per Baba's blessing and wish. My wife was 2 weeks past due and asked me if I can get her a home pregnancy test. I asked her to take the test on Thursday. On the way back from work, I was praying to Baba and I told Him I am going to pay Rs 1 Lakh as dakshina and if comes negative, I will stop praying to him. When humans are taken over emotionally, it is difficult to control words and thoughts, which comes, even though you realize later. On Thursday evening, my wife took the home pregnancy test and it was positive, we couldn't believe it. The pregnancy line was very dark as compared to the other reference line. I was reading all over the Internet trying to find an answer and see how many false positive occur. I read in some forums that when the HCG level is very high, it is common for the line to be darker than the reference line.

Om Sri Sai Baba Ki Jai! For the past 6 months I used to get very bad dreams, I am afraid of it, and I could not sleep for the whole night. After praying to Sai Baba with my whole heartedly, what a surprise! I am not getting any bad dreams and I am having very good sleep. One day when we go out, I said to Baba that I am afraid to go out, please come with me, he gave me his vishvarupadharshanam, from the road to the sky, I was so touched about this, and I thanked him for his presents with me every moment. Shri Siradi Sai Baba Ki Jai.

Anandhi
Om Sai Ram!. This happened a week before to me. I think Baba not as my guru but as my grandfather & so does my son. But even at times I loose hope in him. 2 weeks before a friend on mine was inconsolable because her sister's son (3 year old) was in ICU for convulsions & fever. He was in hands of best hospital. Poojas were done. Even they read satcharita by his bedside. Gave udi. But nothing. I just like that within my heart fought with Baba & said, "I will start reading satcharitha sapthaham. Help the boy. I could not believe you will help me personally but this is for someone else". I know it is childish. People in pain at times loose faith in God. He does not need to prove himself. However, it is we humans look for miracle to prove to ourselves that God is here. I started reading Satcharitha. But until the 7-day afternoon, I had completed only 60 -70 %. I thought I would never finish. Somehow, he made complete the book by not allowing any disturbance for nearly 2 hours in the evening and exactly at 6.20pm I finished reading, gave Baba aarti & prasad. 36 hours later, I got a call from my friend that the boy's fever started reducing from one day earlier and was shifted to general ward. I believe so do everyone around me that it was Baba's miracle nothing else. Might be reading this would help devotees like me who keeping loosing faith in him.

Its just happened on 7 of august around 6 in the evening I was returning back to home after attending campus interview in college and I met with an accident. At the time of fall I just shouted alla malik and I fell from my bike and my head hit the road. My helmet was on but the impact I hit there was a small crack on the block but not a single scar on my helmet. Baba helped me to escape with minor injuries and a small fracture on my right hand little finger. Thanks Baba for saving my life please be with me and my family and thanks for saving her life too.

Baba lived in his physical body for about 60 years in a dilapidated mosque, which he always referred as ‘Dwarkamai’, the Mother of Mercy. Dwarkamai is open to all irrespective of caste, creed or religion. It is the Holy landmark of all religions in the world.  To the Moslems he was a Fakir living in a mosque observing the disciplines of Islam, well versed in Islamic scriptures uttering ‘Allah Malik’ (God is the Master).

My name is Jai, this is for the first time I am sharing my experience to Sai Vichaar and to be honest with you all I was never a believer of Sai baba initially thought I have visited Shirdi twice with my friends but only to the samadhi temple, but when I was in abroad because of some wrong doings I faced a very difficult situation of my health and the symptoms were like of one of the most dangerous incurable disease of present time, I felt that after this I have no life anymore and was planning to finish my self but one day I saw the photo of Sai baba and his two words he used to say to every one that is to have Faith and Patience in life on him and he will take care of all the problems after that, and it is very true and I then followed these two words for rest of three months until I have to go for the checkup, I prayed to Sai baba and always chant Sai name, it helped me to keep me normal and balanced, finally the day came when he called me to Shirdi as he rightly said that he call any one to Shirdi even if he is 7 seas away from him, I came to Shirdi and stayed there for almost 4 days sat in Dwarkamayi as it is the Merciful mother for all simple devotees who cures everyone and found that I felt so relaxed and confident as I already totally surrendered myself to him and finally the day came when I have to go to checkup, to my Surprise when the result came I found that I am normal with my health and nothing is there which was fearing me. My tears came out and I heartily said to Baba for saving me from this disease and said that will never do the wrong doings again. It is because of him I am alive and happy and tension free otherwise I may be no more in his world. Friends Sai baba is so merciful that he takes care of all his devotees who calls him, and his sayings are very true, read Sai SATCHARITRA, his sayings and you will find that every word of his is true and effective even today and will always be. Today I am a strong believer of him.

Sai was with us in every step in our life for the last 20 years, and showered his blessings on all the members of my family. My son's marriage has been fixed on 08.08.08 at Chennai and reception at Hyderabad on 11.08.08. Being rainy season and due to adverse weather conditions it was raining like any thing before 08.08.2008.

I prayed Sai baba for his mercy for granting good weather during those days. I was confident that he would definitely do that. But as a human being, at a corner of my heart I was doubting.....that how Sai will stop all this stormy weather for the sake of one family celebrations.

Now I am ashamed of my self for doubting my Sai baba. The weather was quite good and comfortable all those days and every thing went on well.

OM SAI RAM

When it rains heavily, The basement of our house always gets flooded with about 8 to 10 thousand litres of water which usually takes a day or two to remove with the help of huge tankers, Last night it rained heavily and our basement got flooded again with lots of water, we tried to remove it till 2 am in the nite but all our attempts to remove the water were in vain.

Today, early morning my father woke up at 5 am and he just prayed to god to help us get rid of the water, he went to sleep after that and saw a dream that someone was taking the water out of our basement.

When we all woke up in the morning after that and went to the basement to get the water removed, to our astonishment, there was not even a single drop of water in the basement and it had vanished without any stains or residue and looked like the place had never been wet!!!!

And, i found this page today only when i saw in my news feed that some of my friends had joined dis!!!

MIRACLES HAPPEN YOU JUST NEED TO BELIEVE!!!!

JAI SAI RAM

Savar Suri


This is no story, its the real truth....

This happened years back, it was on Valentines Day, when every one was giving and receiving flowers..I received many from my close mates too..
In the evening when i was at home, i had to pick up something from the car..we were on the 5th floor at that time by the way..So i went down and just all of a sudden, i saw Baba picture in my car near the Odometer..So i started praying to him then, and i asked him, 'Baba to day i have sent and received many flowers, but i haven't even been able to send u one' Now Baba says that 'Every act of Service that u do to the poor, is a flower placed at the Lord's feet' So i asked Baba to give me a chance to send him a flower too..Material and service offering have their differences, and i chose service...

Amazing enough, the very next minute or so i received a call from my Uncle, who asked us to come for this Seva program at Sai Centre which is done every Sunday, where they feed almost 500 poor children, we serve them, clean their dishes, Sweep the floor...
I was at the car at that time and they called on the land line at home..so when i reached at home, i got the message and i was indeed left Speechless... U cant imagine how happy i trully was to receive that call and been given a chance by Baba to serve him..

Sai Ram to all......

Baba Fulfills Devotee's Desire

Sri Sainath Maharaj provided an opportunity to me to visit Bhuvaneswar in February. Sri D. V. L. Narayana Murthy and Maj. E. B. Patro, also a Sai devotee, joined us in Bhuvaneswar. After visiting Puri, Jagannath and Konark, we went to Dhenkenal - where a beautiful Baba Temple has come up in a spacious eight-acre area near Kapilas, about 12 kilo meters from the town.

 

After participating in the Muhurath of Baba's installation on Thursday (21SI) in the morning, we wanted to visit the nearby Kapilas shrine on the hills near the Baba's temple. All the three of us were waiting for the bus. No bus came for almost one hour. When a bus came and stopped after one hour, we tried to get into it. But there was no space, not even to keep one leg. So we came back. I said that if Baba wills, he will take us there." Just as we entering the main gate, a Baba devotee, Sri Chopra was taking some Pundits to Kapilas. He offered to take us along with them to the Kapilas Hills by car. We were surprised at this offer, as it was not even five minutes since I said 'If Baba wills he would take us there.”

 

At the Hills, there is a beautiful temple and a Shiva Linga. There along with the Pundits, we also performed Abhisheka chanting Rudra, Chamaka, Sri Suktha, Purusha Suktha, Durga Suktha, etc. This was a bonus granted to us by Sai Mother. We were immensely pleased with Baba's concern and compassion to his children.

 

Baba showed His kindness once again. We were returning to Bangalore the same evening. We went to Cuttack by bus, waiting there at the Railway Waiting Hall. As there was about half an hour for arrival of the East Coast Express, our friend, Maj. Patro, went to have his bath. Meanwhile, the train arrived before the scheduled time. So were informed the same to Maj. Patro. He told us to proceed and he would join us. We kept his wrist watch, spectacles which he had handed over to us to look after near his luggage, and we went to into the bogies. Maj. Patro also joined us after some time with his luggage. But he forgot to take his spectacles, without which he was helpless. While the train was about to start, a gentleman who was sitting in the retiring room noticing the spectacles came and handed over the same to him. It is a miracle of miracles how he came to know the bogie number and remembering the person handed over his spectacles. Baba has no limits for His love and concern for his dear children.

Baba answers your prayers

By S. Mani

On 10th September 1998, a neatly dressed young man came with a friend, attended the noon pooja at our Sai Mandir in Virar, Mumbai. After the arathi was over, he was still gazing at Baba and was wiping tears from his eyes. I watched him for some time and inquisitively talked to him. He told me that his name was TVS Prasad, a BE graduate and was working as a Senior Manager in a company. His parents, wife and children were all in his native place in Andhra Pradesh. He came to Mumbai as he was interviewed for a position in a Saudi Arabian firm. Unfortunately, the agent cheated him by taking his money, passport and vanished. He was now in a difficult situation as he could neither go back to his previous assignment nor could look forward to the Saudi assignment. Left with no choice, he was doing some piece job right now and staying with a friend and saving money to get a job.

 

He made a request. He wanted me to visit his parents in Andhra on his behalf and tell them his predicament. He would bear my expenses for his trip. He did not wish to get back to them till he got a job. I convinced him that I was a stranger and his people may or may not believe my words and it would be better if he himself visited them and explain the predicament. I told him to sincerely pray to Sai Baba who would certainly do the needful.

 

I invited him and his friend to our house for lunch. For me it was Sai Baba himself coming to my place and accepting prasad. He visited the Sai Mandir the next day also. Then several months passed and there was no trace of this devotee. I thought that he might have gone back to his native place or might have got a job elsewhere.

 

Then, one fine morning I received a closed cover. The postal stamp was from Riyadh. It was a letter from this gentleman. He wrote to me: "By the blessings of Sai Baba, my ambition has been fulfilled. I am now employed in Digital Computers in Riyadh. I will personally go and meet my people, etc." He had thanked me for the solace I had given him. Baba never fails His devotees. What the devotee wishes, he will get it from Him.

Unique Sai Miracle

By Mrs. Rathna Chandrasekhar

 

Baba gave me an opportunity to visit Shirdi from November 16 to 18, 1998, along with my nephew, Dr. G. R. Vijayakumar, and his wife Seetha. My nephew generally performs 'Pradosh' pooja to Lord Mahadev and while planning the trip, he asked us to leave Bangalore after finishing the Pradosh pooja on November 16. Somehow this was not convenient and we had to plan in such a manner that we would be in Shirdi between November 16 and 18. My nephew reluctantly agreed saying that Sai-willing still he could perform 'Pradosh pooja' on November 16.

 

We reached Shirdi on the 16th forenoon. We had darshan to our heart's content. In the evening, we went to the Mahadev Mandir in the precincts of Samsthan and enquired the priest about ‘Pradosh’ pooja. The priest said that such a provision is not there and individual devotees could offer worship to the Shiva Linga. My nephew was disappointed. He asked us to fetch some flowers and other offerings and meanwhile, started chanting 'Rudra' and 'Chamaka' hymns preparatory to Abhishekam.

 

Lord Sainath always provides where He guides. At this moment, a miracle occurred. Even before we started to get pooja materials, a middle aged lady appeared there from nowhere. She brought a basketful of Bel-pathra, Bilva fruits, flowers, seven litres of milk, a pot of curds, a little quantity of honey and sugar, apart from other pooja materials. She placed all these things at our disposal and wanted to perform pooja to Lord Mahadev on behalf of her son.

 

We were happy at the turn of events. We performed, ‘Panchamrit Abhishek’ to the Shiva Linga, offered ‘archana’ by reciting ‘Trishathi’ and finally did ‘Arathi’, which coincided with the evening arathi to Sai Baba. The final outcome was that my nephew could perform ‘Pradosh’ pooja in a much better manner on the holy soil of Shirdi, than he had ever performed at his hometown earlier.

 

Sai Baba is close behind our thoughts and He is there to fulfill each one of our needs and desires in His own inimitable manner.

Riches we often miss

By Mrs. H. V. Krishnaven

"Sai Baba - teach us to take advantage of the opportunities offered to us - not the people offering them."

- Anonymous

During the 'Akhanda Sai Nama Saptaham' held at Sai Spiritual Centre at Bangalore, I used to see my father derive more from the 'Nama Japam' than anyone else in the group. What in the world does he get out of this? - I used to ask myself, for he is deep in his 80's and totally deaf. Then, one day, as tactfully as I could, I scribbled a note and asked him.

"My dear" he chided me gently, "it is true that I do not hear the Nama Japam you do, but I 'hear' four or five others."

 

I must have looked pretty mystified. He explained: "While the rest of you are busily singing 'Om Sai Sri Sai Jaya Jaya Sai' I am concentrating on the holy Padukas of Sai Baba. There is plenty there to ponder over surrendering to His lotus feet. You see, this is my 'Nama Japam'.

 

My father further explained the glory of love and friend­ship. It is not the outstretched hand nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one from the life of His Holiness Radhakrishna Swamiji when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust Sai Baba with his acts of Sai-love.

The Circle of Love

By Mrs. Usha Ranganathan

''When Sai Baba measures man, He puts the tape around his heart - not his head".

- Radhakrishna Swamiji

 

As a devotee of Sai Baba and beloved Sri Radhakrishna Swamiji, I have often wondered that Swamiji is an Ideal without a body, an Image enshrined in the heart of mine, a song whose music and melody have thrown innumerable souls into the raptures of ecstasy. Little did I know that on a fine morning that I could be part of the circle of 'Love', when I was in the USA on a short assignment in 1984.

 

My colleague, Miss Albery, was perhaps the most unusual of my colleagues. She seldom spoke herself. We knew that her early life had been privileged, but that when she joined our company, she was old and alone and impoverished, living in a shabby room with a few cherished keepsakes.

 

She met adversity bravely, but with a stern and haughty demeanor. I myself tried hard, but I could not break through her reserve. I used to pray to Sai Baba and Sri Radhakrishna Swamiji that I would find some way to reach her, but she was too proud to let emotion show.

 

One lunch hour in December 1984, I was browsing in an antique shop, a favorite pastime. I seldom purchased anything, but this day was different. I spotted an enamel pencil in a silver case. It had a large 'A' in its elaborate monogram and I felt an urge - almost a physical nudge - to buy it for my friend Albery.

 

"What is this?" she asked brusquely when I handed her the tiny package.

"Just a little Christmas something", I said apprehensively. When Albery opened the package and saw the silver case, her body tensed, and her eyes filled with tears. "Usha'', she said, - never before had she used my first name - "Usha, how did you know?''

"Know what?" I asked.

"This one belonged to me," she said, "I had to sell it years ago, when I was hungry and desperate. It was given to me by someone I loved. And now your kindness has brought it back’

 

A Circle of Love

‘Circle of love' thought, 'I have been part of a as I thanked Sai Baba and Sri Radhakrishna Swamiji from my heart, I could see happiness beaming across Albery's face.

Koti pranam to Sai. I want to share my experience with you. What can I say, my one month old baby fell down from my own hands I was speechless, my heart stopped beating for a while I was so scared my mom and dad everyone where so tensed. I prayed to Baba. Now everything is fine only because of Baba. Please show the same love towards my baby and towards my family. Thank you so much Baba you are always there for us.

Devotee
To begin with our family is a staunch follower of Shri Sai Natha. We believe in him immensely and know within us that we have our Sai Baba looking out for us all the time. This is a small experience but of great value to my mother. My mom goes for evening walks regularly and she is sometimes accompanied by our family friend. On GuruPoornima day also our aunt asked my mom if we are going for evening walk, but my mom was unsure as she had some work in the office and that she might be late. So my aunt made plans to go to Baba's temple in the evening as the walk is cancelled. At the last moment my mom 's work got cancelled and she came home at regular time and decided to go for her walk; then she knew that my aunt was going to the temple. So my mom started off alone, during her walk she crossed Baba's temple and saw long lines of people standing for darshan and also saw many people coming out with big covers of prasadam. My mom thought for a minute had she planned earlier she could have gone to the temple and got the prasadam. Its not that my mom was after the prasadam only but somehow her mind was fixated on the prasadam covers in all the people's hands. She felt very bad for not having the prasadam. So she came home after the walk, and started to cook something for dinner. At that moment she heard a knock on the door and when she opened it was my family friends who went to Baba's temple with two big covers of prasadam.

Continued..
They said they initially took only one but someone came by and gave another one. They said they came by to give one to my mom, when they never mentioned earlier if they were comming over (as if they thought of it spontaneously). My mom did not realise this then but after they left, it just struck her that she was thinking so much and feeling so bad about missing the prasadam, that Baba like a child's request fulfilled my mom's request by sending the prasadm straight to the house. What else, she was overwhelmed with joy, she could not say how blessed she felt and how child like happiness Baba had blessed her with. This is what we get when Baba takes over and looks after us. She wanted to share this happiness with all SAI devotees via the newsletter. So I hope this post might have made justification to what she felt. Jai Sai Ram!!!

DEVOTEE EXPERIENCE

I wish to share one of the countless blessings Baba has and is showering on my family and me. Since a very young age, my mother has had a chronic condition in both her eyes called glaucoma. She has lost vision in one eye and has reduced vision in the other. A couple of years ago her vision was threatened by a worsening of glaucoma due to a sudden increase in the pressure within her eyes.

The doctors and specialists tried all the latest treatments available and they could not bring the pressure down. Faced with the prospect of uncontrolled increase in pressure within the eyes leading to total blindness, we were in great distress. I was inconsolable and cried a lot. I turned to Baba for help and prayed to him with all my heart. I then opened Sai Satcharita and the page that opened up was from chapter thirteen which happens to be “More Sai leelas - Diseases cured".

The words that my eyes fell upon were “All the stories show that, the real medicine that cured various diseases permanently, was Baba's word and grace, and not any medicines or drugs." These words told me that all my worries were in Baba's hands and that He would look after my mother. I lit a lamp and prayed to Baba daily, crying for help. My prayer to Baba was that my mother should have her vision to the end of her lifetime.

During that period I also happened to see a photo of Baba on my computer, which had one eye partly shaded and the other eye fully bright. I immediately felt that Baba was telling me that my mother's vision was going to be saved. At that time my parents happened to be introduced to an Ayurvedic doctor from a hospital in Kerala through their family doctor. This Ayurvedic physician gave them tremendous hope and asked them to come to Kerala for treatment.

My parents went to Kerala and stayed there for a nearly a month in a room provided by the hospital. The pressure in my mother's eyes came down to the normal level and was stabilized, saving her vision. A patient in the room next to their’s left. My parents went in to have a look at the empty room to see if it was more convenient than the one they were staying in. The room was empty, except for a white statue of Baba, which had been left behind. When my parents told me about this over the phone, my joy knew no bounds.

Baba had shown His presence in our lives in such a beautiful way. My parents took the statue with them and have it in their puja place at home. My mother, who had not prayed to Baba before, now fully believes in Him. She took Baba's statue with her on a trip to USA when she went to spend time with my sister. At a Sai temple in USA, my mother felt Baba was looking at her and talking to her, telling her that she had finally come to see Him.

I have told my mother how I prayed to Baba and now that she has Baba's blessings with her, there is no place for fear in her life. Her vision today is Baba's grace. What more can I say about Baba's love and compassion? He is the one who lights our path when there is darkness all around.

I read an article in a previous issue of this newsletter in which a devotee says that we only look at a small part of our lives, but Baba looks at the whole picture- past, present and future and blesses us with what is best for us. From our side we can only do our best and leave the rest to Baba and He will see us through, not only for this lifetime but through all the lifetimes to come. Everyday before I leave home I say "Sarvam Sai Padarpanam" and that's where my life is - at His feet. Om Sri Sai. Om Sri Sai.

Experiences...

Sahana 
   
Around 2 months ago, a lady I know brought me a coconut from Sai Baba's temple. The coconut had been kept in front of Sai Baba on a kalash. There was a huge celebration on that day as it was the day Baba attained the Maha Samadhi. This lady was very thoughtful to have brought me the Prasad from the temple. A week after I got the prasad (coconut), I received an email in which there was a leela of Sai Baba's in which was written that Sai Baba had given a coconut to a lady in her dreams which was a sign of blessing her with a child. To my surprise, the same thing happened to me. Two weeks after I received the coconut, I came to know that I too was expecting. What a miracle, I thought this was and what a great soul Baba is.


Sneha 

During search of alliance for my marriage i was upset with the series of incidents happening & the type of matches i was getting, at one point i was fed up & thought enough is enough i dont want to marry & stopped looking for alliances. The very same same i got an email about a match .. i though ok let me give a go & proceeded further & that match got fixed.

I gave my 1st wedding invitation to Siabab in temple& prayed that baba should come & bless me. My marriage was held in Thirupathi on Thursday(which i feel is very auspicious day). After marriage we went for darshanam & came back home & i felt bit disappointed as i hven't seen Baba & thought Baba dnt come to my marriage. Next day went to register office to get our marriage registered as i married NRI & has to move shortly after marriage.When we went to the register office i saw a beautiful calender of Baba, i looked at that picture & felt happy & to our surprise we were asked to sit infront of that calender to complete the registrations process of our marriage.When we were doing so i looked at Baba's beautiful smile which communicated a message saying that u invited me to your marriage & see i came & ur getting married infront of me..

Felt so happy as i got Baba's blessing...


Sneha
   

When i was studying my degree my sisters friend came to our house with Baba Parayanam book, i asked her about the book & she explained me about parayanam & how to do. I borrowed book from her saying i'l also do parayanam but i never did any pooja seriously in my life & never i fast. Even now also i dont know wht made me take the book from her & do parayanam(May be Gods lela to drag me near to him).On fine Thursday i started the parayam though i dnt have enough pooja material also.After doing pooja i used to pray to Baba to give me enough strength to do pooja all week by fasting as im not used to it & i hv to go to college by walking long distance to & fro from college.I successfully completed parayam & went to temple distributed prasad to beggers & felt contended that it went on well & i was able to sustain by eating only one time all week. On last day after completing parayanam i lied to mother & sat in front of Tv watch a programme & to my surprise the programme i was watching communicated a message not to lie. I felt shocked & though it's Baba's way of teaching as i just lied to my mother that day.After that in the next week when i was sleeping i got a dream in which me & my school friend were standing at a place in the school i studied where all Gods' idols & photos were placed, my friend told me to take akshitas in hand pray whloleheartedly to God & place akshithas near God & told our wish will be fulfilled,she told me & placed akshitas near God,Now it's my turn to do so. I took akshitas in my hand & dn't wish for anything just stood infront about to place akshitas near God at that moment i saw a Glorious (Very bright & radiant) silver idol of saibaba rising from the idols,I was amazed by the radiance & glow coming from that idol & was looking at it when Baba voice came from it saying "I WILL HOLD YOUR HAND TILL THE END OF UR LIFE". my dream ended & when i woke up in moring recollected my dream & felt so happy.

From then onwards my Fain in Baba increased & i experienced many miracles in my life.I used to go to Baba's temple every thursday..Initially i used to go to temle fascinated by prasad & many times i used to ask Baba for wht prasad i wanted (like halwa, fried chick peas,tamarind rice..ect)before entering to the temple & when i go near the prasadam i used to get the same prasad i asked & feel happy & used to look at Baba smile thinking that u listern to my inner voice. One day i went to temple & before going inside i found a lovely pink rose near the flower vendor & thought what a lovely rose wish i get this rose from Baba today, laughted to myself for wht i asked & went inside temple & when i approached baba's idol the poojari called me & took the same kind of pink rose( which i looked outsied) from Baba's feet & gave it to me. My joy knew no bounds when i took the flower.

Archana  - India

On saturday.. my friends and me went to a Sai Mandir.. @ Kengeri.. beyong infact.. this temple is very beautiful.. serene.. peaceful.. and they had constructed the Dwarakamayee exactly in the style of Shirdi.. the aunty who has constructed the mandir.. went to Shirdi all the way to collect the coal from the Dhuni at Shirdi, so as to use the same here. but though she had requested for it many months back, now they had told her the rules r changed and they dont give the fire to anyone. she being a very ardent devotee of Baba, prayed to Baba that she would be happy even if she gets two coal pieces from the holy fire lit by Baba. but as the sansthan was strict and they said they wouldnt.. aunty was in a fix.. she also had immense faith in Baba.. @ 4:00 am, she went and got herself seated and waited.. before arati commenced, the usual practice itseems is to collect some coal from the Holy Dhuni and light Sambrani with the same and show the sambrani to Samadhi Mandir and Dwarakamayee.. as they took two long urns and the sambrani process was gettign done, aunty aiwated patiently.. and after they were done with showing the Sambrani to Samadhi Mandir, they went away.
the surprise was that, they left the urn behind. aunty curiously went and saw the urn and to her utter surprise, there were 2 coal pieces inside it. the best part.. just 2 coal pieces were there.. what a miracle. she collected them in the container she took along and non stop, fed with o
