Sai Baba Always Listens
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from USA says: I am Baba’s daughter from the USA. I would like to be anonymous. Dearest Baba, I am in a very difficult situation. I am feeling worse because I am also guilty. I am very worried and sad now and don’t know what to do. I am in a complete mess. Please help Baba.
This is regarding my darling son who is in medical school. He is very brilliant and a loving son. He is also passionate about his work and wants to do something for this world and humanity. This is regarding his marriage. He is 31 already and like any mother, I have been praying to Baba for a suitable candidate for him. A few months back he had chosen a girl for him who was not at all suitable for him, kind of like a party girl and I prayed to Baba to do something. Finally, my son broke up with that girl and I submitted my experience about this.
After a few months again I was after my son to find a suitable girl for him. I was in India and on a Thursday morning I heard some crows cawing. I thought I was going to hear some good news about my daughter’s medical school interview. But after some time I got a message from my son that He was able to find a nice girl and he would tell me the details later. I was very happy to hear this. After I came back to the USA, I got busy praying for my daughter’s medical school interview and while doing a Saptah Parayan for her, I heard back from my son about this girl when he showed me a picture of her. I asked Baba if this was the girl for my son that He had chosen and the answer was a ‘No.’. Though this girl was not a very good fit for him, I left everything to Baba. I didn’t want to argue with my son and hurt him. I was praying Baba to somehow make this girl work though not a great fit. Honestly, I get a little desperate since all of our friends’ children are married. Whenever my son used to tell something about this girl, I used to answer in a positive way. After around two months my son planned a trip to Boston with this girl to meet her sister and brother-in-law as they had invited him for dinner. My son stayed with my daughter. It was then again that I asked Baba if this was the girl my son should go ahead with, Baba again answered a No. Since then I have been very worried. Her family is not bad even. I came back to know about this recently. But one thing that my son did during this trip hurt me a lot and it was totally unexpected. He booked a hotel in Boston and stayed with this girl for one night. It came as a big shock to me and my daughter. When Baba does not give approval for this candidate, how can I ask my son to go ahead with this girl? Also, why did my Baba not stop my son from doing something like that?
Now I am in extreme pain, I feel guilty for encouraging my son with positive replies when he used to mention this girl. One day my son sent me a nice picture of this girl and I liked it. The same night while watching Devon ke Devon Mahadev I felt as if I saw my son and his bride as Shiva Parvati. I felt very happy. The next day my daughter told me how she saw we had gone to Cambodia and the description was of a Shiva temple that she saw in her dream. I again thought it to be a positive sign. But since last Friday I am in deep pain, confusion, and completely lost. A few days back I had read about a devotee’s experience where she saw a light in the half-conscious state in her sleep when she was very worried about her husband’s health. The same night I prayed to Baba if He was planning something good for my son then He should show some light like that. That night around dawn time with half sleep and half-closed eyes I saw the sky with many lighted stars in a beautiful pattern. I had forgotten about my request. Later on when I realized I felt very happy about it. When we ask for something, we might forget, but Baba never forgets about it.
Baba, my son had really liked a nice girl once in medical school. Somehow that did not work. Since then my son is choosing all random girls. I feel very sad about it. Please do something that without any hard feelings he should part with this girl and at the same time bring the girl You think is right for him as soon as possible, Baba. I have been waiting for a long time, Baba.
I am also part of a group where we pray for marriages and partners. Once my wish is fulfilled, I will publish my experience here.
Baba had asked me to donate oil and tobacco for three Thursdays and that my work will be completed. This was again about my son whom I had prayed for. Baba’s ways are beyond human intelligence and understanding. After three Thursdays it was on Friday only that I asked Baba for the final approval from Baba about this girl and He said, ‘No.’ Since then I have asked several times and I have got the answer ‘No.’
Another thing I would like to mention is how Baba knows the past, present, and future. Sometime back when I was praying for my daughter’s admission, He had asked me to donate food on Holi Day in Baba’s name. I forgot about it. Then it was on Holi day that I remembered about this, I was in a dilemma about how to donate food that day. I had enquired with the temple Holi celebration team about how they were giving food to the devotees. It was a huge number and I could not possibly make food (even one item) for such a large gathering. Then I thought I would donate food to the temple but then that would need some time for preparation. I didn’t have enough time with me. Then suddenly an idea flashed through my mind to donate food to the homeless along with the oil and cigar. I purchased burgers and donated them to two homeless persons and they were very happy. It was as if Baba accepted the food. Baba knew I was going to donate food with oil and cigars, months back in advance. Baba is omniscient.
Also, the next day while reading from the Satcharitra, I came across a page where I read about how Baba used to like oil and Tobacco. Then I realized Baba did accept my offering.
Baba, I love You and completely surrender at Your lotus feet. Please help my son marry a nice girl. I want my son to be happy.
Baba gives us hard tests and when we cry He comes running to us to comfort us and shows us ways to fulfill our desires and give us the best.
Jai Sai Ram Jai Sai Ram Sri Sai Ram Om Sai Rakshyaka Sharanam!
Sai Baba Is The Only Saviour
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: I prostrate before our Lord, God Sai to help me pen down my experiences.
I thank Him from the bottom-most part of my heart for accepting me as His devotee. I am humbled and blessed to be in the company of other beautiful souls who are Sai bhaktas as well. Pranam and namaskars to all of you and dear Hetalji and her blessed team. Hetalji is surely a reincarnation of Hemandpantji.
I have been wanting to share my experiences for a long time now, but I have been lazy and I feel bad about it. When we ask Baba for something, we want our wishes to be fulfilled immediately but while sharing them we take our own sweet time, which is not right.
Experience 1: My sister’s son got admission to college because of Sai’s grace. The college website where he was to apply was not opening and the cut-off time was just an hour away. But thanks to our Sai, the moment my sister took Baba’s name, the website started working and he was able to apply in the nick of time. So, thank You so, so much Baba.
Experience 2: I kept my spectacles somewhere and kept looking for them. I searched the whole house 2-3 times. I thought there was no point in disturbing Sai for such a silly thing. But for our Baba nothing is insignificant. Finally, I requested Baba to help me find them and the moment I said this, you won’t believe, I looked behind the pillow that I was using as my backrest, I mean why would my glasses be kept behind the pillow and that’s where I found them that very moment. As promised to Baba I am sharing my experience on this holy site.
Experience 3: For some personal reason, I was under a lot of stress for almost 10 to 12 days, and I thought of getting my blood pressure checked. I really don’t know why I thought of getting it checked, maybe because I was feeling heaviness in my chest and continuous mild headaches. My blood pressure usually is always within range. But this time it was on the higher side, in fact much higher. I was advised by the doctor to monitor it, morning and evening for a week. During this period, it continued to be high, very high. Finally, I took an appointment with the doctor. I had prayed to Baba to make my BP normal and that I would definitely post on this divine site. Although, honestly speaking, I really had a feeling that I will have to start taking BP medicine. But our dearest dear Baba heard my prayer and the doctors’ exact words were, I quote, “Mam your BP is better than mine!” He checked my BP twice. You cannot even imagine my happiness at that point in time. I mentally thanked Baba for answering my prayers.
We are nothing without Him. He raises a storm in our lives and then He calms it down too, maybe to put us on the right path. I thank Baba from the bottom most part of my heart for taking a small mortal soul like me under His wings.
There have been numerous big and small experiences that I’ve had since the time Baba took me in His fold and hope that I haven’t forgotten to pen down any of my other experiences. I am sorry Baba if I have.
Koti Koti pranam mere Sai.
Om Sai Ram. Peace Be To All.

Sai Baba Blessings
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: Innumerable are His leelas and as humans, we can only bow down and accept Baba’s blessings.
As told in Satcharitra, storms are created in our lives and we become helpless as situations and incidents occur over which we have no control. When we seek Baba and ask His help, He never lets His devotees down.
In December my dad fell sick and was hospitalized. I wrote about that in my earlier post where after 15 days he came back home with the blessings of Baba. He was recovering slowly at home when another issue came up for which hospitalization and minor surgery were required. Since he was weak and not fully recovered we were apprehensive but still went ahead because it had to be done. With full faith in Baba, we proceeded with the surgery and hospitalization. The surgery went well and my dad came home yesterday. Even the expenses were taken care of by the insurance with only a minimum amount required to be paid from our side. I did not know how I would manage to go to the hospital and do my official work but it got done. It was stressful and I managed. Last three months I have been going a lot around the hospitals. Hope things settle down and life becomes normal.
I face a lot of issues at work and not a day goes by when I do not ask for Baba’s help. Today morning too, someone who had to do some prep work did not come online to do it. I waited for a long time. Finally, through some other way, I got to know that he had completed his work but forgot to inform me. My work got delayed but I completed it. Hope the job goes well without any issues. Many incidents are there where I promise to post but because of some reason or the other, I forget. For all such incidents please accept my humble pranams and guide me through my personal and professional life.
Om Sai Ram.
Sai Baba’s Blessings In Curing Son
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: I am Srinath from Bangalore.
Om Sairam. This is regarding my son getting well with Baba’s grace. My 3.5 years old son was playing one day inside the house chasing a balloon and suddenly he fell down and his teeth hurt his lips. He was bleeding profusely from his lips as some of the blood veins got cut and there was non-stop bleeding. He was crying in much pain. We rushed him to an emergency and were advised to put some stitches. The surgeon was not available and we had to wait for a few hours. Blood was coming non-stop and it was going inside his mouth which was also a problem that could lead to some blood clots if it got into the lungs. I prayed to Baba to take control and get him cured soon as we couldn’t see him suffering and also couldn’t handle him as he is very sensitive. The surgeon came and asked to give a sleeping syrup so that they could stitch and we could go home with the prescribed medicines.
My son is also against taking medicines and he will vomit if we force the medicine. The same happened – we tried to give him sleeping syrup thrice but he vomited and was not falling asleep. So we were left with only one option of giving anesthesia and doing the stitching. So it was carried with some difficulty and stitching was done. He was hospitalized for a day and then came back home. Then he started to remove the stitches as it was itching for him a lot and somehow with Baba’s Udi, grace, and blessings we were able to manage him to have some patience until the wounds were gone and he is doing good now with Baba’s blessings. Thanks a lot, Baba and please keep blessing us always. Please eradicate this coronavirus from the universe.

Mother Sai Helped A Worried Mother
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: Om Sai Ram. I am a Sai devotee from Sambalpur Orissa, India.
I think that my recent experience was a kind of a very common problem encountered by many mothers. Yesterday my son was getting ready for his morning school. But he didn’t get pressure to complete his toilet work. I was worried about what would happen if he got the pressure in school. He will be troubled, as he is too young. So I prayed to Baba to help him and let him not face any difficulty regarding the toilet during school hours. Mother Sai understands a worried mother’s worries. He helped me and my son and he was not troubled during his school hours. Thank You, Baba, I need You in every sphere of life. Sorry for troubling You with every little thing. Om Sai Ram. Be with us always, oh Father.
