OUR SHIRDI DARSHAN

  • With the blessings of our Sad Guru Shiri Sainath  Maharaj I could pay obeisance to HIM at HIS abode ……SHIRDI.

    How Baba has taken care of me and my family in my difficult times is something that cannot be described. Such experiences have no words they are only felt. During those difficult days without my knowing Baba came to us and held us all close to HIM. HE endured and suffered along with us. Infact HE suffered more than us because at times our minds became so unreasonable that we refused to see HIS oneness with us and HIS kindness and special attention to us all. At times I even refused to recognize the existence of Baba.

    How HE transformed me into a completely changed person is HIS Leela only. Today my day starts with Baba’s thoughts and ends with Baba’s thoughts. Today when I look back I realize HIS greatness and I’m filled with ………

    I wanted to describe my Shirdi visit,on 19th of this month, but before proceeding to do so I want all those devotees of this forum who are engulfed in day to day problems not to ever loose faith in Baba.Times will be difficult, Delays will crop up, Hindrances will be at every corner, we may fall at times………BUT HE is there HE is with all of us.

    We have to have Sharddha and Saburi rest will follow.

    While proceeding for Shirdi the Taxi driver turned out to be a staunch devotee of Baba. When he learnt that we were going for Shirdi darshan HE was overwhelmed. At the railway Station he gave us twenty-one rupees to be put in the donation box at Shirdi.I asked him his name and he replied no name Sir, just please give this to Baba from my side.
    NOW this is not a coincidence….. this is Baba’s Leela only. He wanted Dakshina from the Taxi driver. I was only to carry it to Shirdi and hand it over to Baba.
    I have brought along with me some udi for the taxi driver. I’m sure I’ll find him somewhere and be able to give it to him.

    When I think of this incidence I feel so happy so contented .Whenever, wherever Baba needs anything from us HE shows us HIS leelas.So true are HIS vacchans.

    SADGURU SAINATH MAHARAJ KI JAI.
    On reaching Manmad we alighted from the train and found a taxi to take us to SHIRDI.As usual Baba always makes me to stop at Kopergaon -- Tapovan of Baba for HIS darshan.
    There was still some time for the afternoon arti and since it was Rakhi and my sister was traveling with me I was fortunate enough to have Rakhi tied on my wrist with Baba witnessing and also having arranged for things to be such. What a way to celebrate Rakhi!!!

    SADGURU SAINATH MAHARAJ KI JAI.

    As soon as the Rakhi ceremony was over the noon arti began. Baba was right in front of us in all grandeur. It was a treat for the eyes. After the Arti the priest called me over and tied a Rakhi on my wrist and if that was not enough HE gave us some Navaidyam from the same Plate in which Baba had been offered Bhog. What more could I ask for than having been given Prasad partaken by Baba HIMSELF.

    SADGURU SAINATH MAHARAJ KI JAI.

    At Shirdi our Darshan was such as if everything was planned. There was hardly any rush on Rakhi Day and we had heartful Darshan of Baba. Mesmerized we stood in front of HIS Samadhi not knowing what to do....to thank HIM or Cry out to our hearts content or bow down to pay our respects or pray for our forum members.
    We just stood …stood there and didn’t know what was happening till it was time to move on.

    SADGURU SAINATH MAHARAJ KI JAI.

    We could attend the evening arti on Rakhi Day and all artis on 20th with Baba’s permission. I had kept with me a woolen shawl, a coconut and a Kg of rice with some money for the last 7-8 months for Baba with a vow to bring the same to Shirdi when things would be fine at my end.
    When I handed this over to the priest at Samadhi Mandir I could feel Baba’s eagerness to accept the same. The shawl was very carefully spread on the Samadhi and the rice was accepted by Baba. Usually it is touched and returned, but this was kept by Baba in Samadhi Mandir itself.
    The coconut I gave in Dawarkamai to be consecrated in the holy fire.

    SADGURU SAINATH MAHARAJ KI JAI.
    Before my trip to Shirdi my wife had a dream in which Baba was asking her for Laddoos. So she gave me a box of Besan Laddoos for Baba.I had forgot to carry that with me on 19th and 20th to Samadhi Mandir. Suddenly I remembered and on 20th evening I carried the Box opened it up and handed it to the priest in Samadhi Mandir. The way the priest took out the Laddoos from the box was a treat for the eyes....as if Baba was waiting and hungry to have those laddoos.

    SADGURU SAINATH MAHARAJ KI JAI.  

    On 21st it was time to take permission from Baba for proceeding back home. When we entered the Samadhi Mandir it was full of devotees. Around two lacs of devotees were there on 20th and 21st. We were standing on one side with clear darshan of Baba and spent 20 minutes just standing and praying...seeking HIS permission to leave. The priest handed us some Prasad and we bid farewell to Baba.

    But Baba wanted us to go to Dawarkamai to take HIS permission to leave so we went there and got lots of Prasad (Navedyam) which is distributed after the noon arti.
    I have prayed for the welfare of all members of this forum many times. Baba will bless us all and in particular all devotees of this forum.

    SADGURU SAINATH MAHARAJ KI JAI.

    Jai Sai Ram,
    Sanjiv

  • Om Sai Ram Ramesh Bhai,

    Well See what baba has done to me Ramesh Ji. This Sanjiv bhai of yours used to think that only the weak cry and men never have tears in their eyes. While I write this i hardly can see the screen.
    Jai Sai Ram,
    Sanjiv

  • Sanjeev ji,

    Good to know your experiences in Shirdi. I visited again while reading your experience.

    Tears are the biggest asset. They let us ward off our grief.

    Also when we are overwhelmed with the joy or gratitude, tears are the only source and means to display it. I am happy that you understood the value of them.

    Sai Ram

    Sanjiv, dearest brother, there are just no words ...  It is wonderful to see how blessed you are and I feel more than blessed that you shared your experience with all od us.
    Thank you for your prayers, dear brother, and thank you most of all for your silence ...

    Just like beloved Ramesh I have been watching you dearly ever since you wrote "BABA has given me an elder brother" (I think that was the headline of you post) and I'm amazed and more than happy to see the changes in you ...
    Yes, you are already in our Divine Union, you and all your dear family - and each and every one of your tears takes you a big step further on your path ...
    ... which may be filled with Madhukamini flowers over and over now and forever.

    Om Sai Ram
