Sai Baba Visits As A Fakir & Blesses With Wishes
Shirdi Sai Baba Devotee Amita From India says: Sairam! Wishing all readers a very Happy Ram Navami. Feeling so happy and blessed to share a Leela of Sai Baba which happened recently on this divine platform. All His wishes. I am blessed to be part of this great initiative by Sai Baba in this Kaliyug for our spiritual evolution. I belong to the Global Mahaparayan group MP-3783N1 Rakesh Sai.
Recently we were renovating our old storerooms. A mason came along with a worker on 24th February which happened to be a Thursday. When I saw the worker, I was taken aback. His facial features were strikingly similar to Sai Baba. He was wearing a patka (cloth on the head) tied and worn exactly like Baba. His physique bore a lot of resemblance to Baba. I started clicking His pictures and started sharing them with many Sai devotees. I also spoke to Him, His voice had amazing power. I went to click more of His pictures. Once He was smoking a beedi and in one instance He was climbing a ladder, He was sitting with a brick. All these activities are mentioned in Sai Satcharitra. It was so wonderful to witness all this.
During lunchtime, I really wanted to offer Him some sweets but sadly no sweets were at home that day. I somehow managed to get some vegetables. He asked for water to drink which I gladly offered. He had so much divine aura. That was the beauty. A real Fakir who has no fikar (worry).
A devotee messaged me to offer Him some money on her behalf which she digitally transferred that moment itself. This gave me an idea to offer Him some money too from my side. I went to offer Dakshina to Him. He gave me a million-dollar smile. It was so beautiful. I had decided that I would take His blessings by touching His feet. When I bent down to take aashirwad, He was wearing shoes, nevertheless, I didn’t want to miss this golden opportunity. I touched His shoes and took His blessings. A very blessed Thursday indeed.
He came again on 14th March, Amalaka Ekadasi. On 15th March, He came again. Was blessed to offer Him bananas, sweets, and Prasad from Salasar Balaji.
There’s one thing that I must mention. I had this strong urge to visit Shirdi but couldn’t. I also wanted a Baba’s worn patka (head cloth) from Shirdi, tried many sources but couldn’t get it.
A thought suddenly came to my mind that I could request Him to give me His patka. I took another clean cloth and requested Him that I needed His worn patka. He readily removed it and handed it over to me.
I asked Him, “Do You know why I need it? “
He replied, “You want it so I gave it to you.”
I cried and told Him that He reminded me of Baba.
He said, “हाँ मुझे पता हैं, मेरा आशीर्वाद हमेशा तुम्हारे साथ हैं” (Yes I know, My blessings are always with you).
He touched my head lovingly and gave blessings. I was speechless, overwhelmed, and feeling blissful.
Overjoyed in receiving the patka, I took a picture of it. A beautiful face of Sai could be seen on it. My heart was filled with too many emotions. Then again a devotee sent over money digitally to give Him. I also contributed to it. She also asked if I could collect some sand or soil on which He walked. She also asked me to inquire about His name.
I thanked her for this idea. I took a brand new white cloth and put some sand and pebbles shells on it (as construction was going on only sand was available). I requested Him to stand over the sand. He fulfilled my wish so sweetly. This time I touched His feet and took His blessings. I realized that the new cloth which I had given for patka was small on His head. I handed over new clothes to Him. He returned the small patka. Now I was gifted with two patkas. What huge Blessings!!!
I asked Him, “What’s Your name?
He replied, “Shivram” (शिवराम).
Omg! What a divine Name! Got goosebumps again.
This second patka I decided to give to the devotee who gave the idea of collecting soil. I told her, it was His wish and design. Overjoyed with the happenings I placed the cloth on which He stood and the sand shells pebbled into a box. I randomly picked one pebble from it and touched it on my forehead. When I looked closely at it, it resembled Lord Ganesha. Got goosebumps. What a blessing!!! I have no words.
Later when I zoomed in and saw the pictures taken. There was the presence of Sai in the pictures. Please see the pictures attached.
Whenever a bhakt truly calls, Sai comes and fulfills His wishes beautifully. My words can’t do justice to what I had experienced. Always in gratitude to Sai Baba for being in my life and making it more beautiful. Thank You, Baba. Love You so much. Sairam!
Darshan Of Sai Baba & Composition Of Poem
It was noon when I peeped through my room’s window outside (from the first floor) where I could view a leguminous tree along with shrubs around. Since it was mid-December, I could see the branches/twigs without any hindrance from the leaves. I saw an Asian Koel (which can be seen quite often here in Bangalore).
I have been waiting for a miracle to happen in my life for a year and awaiting the grace of Sai Baba. During this journey, I could see myself growing in the spiritual path. Chanting the divine name of guru Sai I saw the koel and did believe that it was Shirdi Sai Himself in one of His attributes. Although I didn’t pay much attention to the subject and went out of my room, I came back after some time thinking about the koel (and if it would be Sai Maharaj) and looked through the window. I could not find the bird. The surrounding was clear of any noise since it was noon. I prayed to Baba saying “If the koel I saw previously is certainly You and is Your form then please come again and give me Your darshan.” I waited for a few minutes staring outside if I am fortunate enough for His blessings but the bird did not show up. Soon I started composing a song on Sai Baba (I usually write my prayers/desires/emotions to convey to the Thee in the Carnatic music format, in Kannada). The English translation of the same is given below.
Come Sai, show Yourself Come O, precious gem! My Chief! Come, O the One Who draws His devotees to Thy side, Come, O the One Who listens to His devotees, Come, O the One Who destroys the Bhava roga, Come, O the One Who is fond of Bakula flowers. Come, O the Brother of Bayaja Bai, come, O the One Who resides in Booty Wada, come, O the One Who gave the coins and blessed, come, O the beloved of Shama. Come, O the One Who rests under the Neem tree, Come, O the One Who removes Daaridra, Come, Guru Sai as kogile (Koel), Come, O the One Who protects those who seek refuge.
After composing and singing it, I went near the window to be a lucky person. But, I didn’t find the bird on the tree and also looked around if I was missing anything. In a minute, the koel flew from the right and sat on the tree. I truly believe it was Guru Saintha Himself on the tree Who heard me or at least, it is Him showing me to keep firm faith in His feet always; by playing this act of coincidence.
Guru Deva, please fulfill my desire and be the miracle that I have been waiting for. Let me always sing in the praises of You.
Om Gurusainathaya Namah
Request To Sai Baba To Guide
I had my booster shot and prayed to Baba that I should not get severe side effects from it. With His blessings, I was slightly sick with severe arm pain for a day and recovered within a couple of days.
With Sai Baba’s blessings, I have a daughter (who will be five years next month) and a son (who is about 20 months). After I got the booster shot my son started vomiting a couple of times after breastfeeding him. I checked with the doctors before vaccination about continuing the breastfeeding and they also said that it was fine. I was not able to understand why he was vomiting. I prayed to Baba to take care of my son and that he should not vomit again that day. Baba took care of him and he didn’t vomit after that. Apparently, some food my baby had that day must have made him vomit.
Baba, I am getting very worried day by day with my unplanned pregnancy. Even You made my mom take out a chit that asked me not to continue with this pregnancy. I am not able to understand what to do and whom to approach about this. I am spending sleepless nights and my husband seems to be irritated and starts fighting with me even for the smallest things. I am screaming at kids for no reason at times and then I cry every night that I am not able to be a good mother. I feel useless and helpless. All my friends have started working and maybe my husband is comparing me (who is just a housewife) with them. But Baba, You know that everybody has only one kid (4 years and up) and they are able to concentrate. I have a little one and it’s so hard to take out any time for studying.
Now, with this pregnancy again I am not sure where I am heading in my life. Sometimes, I feel that even You are angry with me Baba. Please help me and my family (also my parents, my sisters, and their family, and all Your devotees). Please guide me through a dream or through a person Baba. Om Sai Ram.

My son was planning to travel to Mumbai. So he had booked a ticket and two days prior to the journey he got the Covid test done. To our great shock, the report was positive. If it had not been for the Covid test, we would have not known about his condition, as there was no Covid symptom. Baba, I have full faith in You that You will, look after my son, be with him and cure him quickly. Om Sai Rakshak Sharnam Deva. My tension reduced a bit when I found the other family members as negative. Dear devotees kindly pray for the early recovery of my son and all those who are infected. Baba, please wipe out this coronavirus from the world and make this world a healthy and peaceful place again. Om Sai Shri Sai Jai Jai Sai.
Sai Baba – Udi Miracle
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: I am a devotee of Sai Baba from India. I read Sai Satcharitra daily, at least one chapter, and get immense satisfaction and peace of mind.
Every time I read the book my mind says Baba is your Guru and para brahman incarnate as Guru to lead you to moksha, crossing the ocean of samsara (worldly life) which is full of sorrows and happiness experiencing due to the bad and good karmas done by me in this and earlier lives.
Last night before going to bed I prostrated before the photo of Baba as usual. I was having slight back pain and thought it would go away naturally. But unfortunately, it didn’t go away and the pain increased as the night advanced. I prayed to Baba for relief. I had no stock of ointment or ayurvedic oil used for such pain and was wondering what I could do at night when all the shops were closed. Then I went to my prayer room (only a corner of a room) and found some Udi brought by one of my friends from Puttaparthi a few months back. I remembered the story of Narayan Jani given in Satcharitra (chapter 33). Then praying to Sai and chanting Sai Sai Sai I applied the Udi on my back where it was paining and to my surprise, the pain stopped forthwith and I slept. I promised Sai Baba that I would send this for publication if the pain did not come back again till morning. I had received mail from Hetal Mam also regarding the publication of the devotees’ experiences after many, many days. So I immediately decided to send it as desired by my Sai Ma. Om Sai Ram!
Thanks To Sai Baba

For the last couple of days I have been waiting for some test results. And I was worried about it. I prayed to Baba to please let the reports be normal. I had promised Baba that I would post it if it was normal. Baba came to my rescue. I got the results today and it was normal. Thank You Baba for all Your blessings. I am grateful to You Baba for always looking after my family.
Love You, Deva. Let us be at Your lotus feet always.
Anant Koti Bramhand Nayak Raja Dhiraj Yogiraj Parabramha Shri Satchidanand Sadguru Sainath Maharaj ki Jai. Thank You Baba.
