Sai Tested, Taught And Reinforced Faith
I wanted to share an experience from today without any delay. I feel our Sai tests us by putting us into a situation only to teach us that we should always pay attention to our duties and perform them with utmost care.
I work for a company on the IT side. In this pandemic, like most companies, our company also has let its employees work from home and continues to let us work remotely. Our company policies dictate that our remote work can be anywhere in the US, and we cannot work from outside of the USA. If we need to travel outside of the country then we need to get our laptops scanned and take permission from the management and security teams and they are very strict about this.
I have had an opportunity to go out on a 2-day all-inclusive trip and this was to a place outside of the USA and the trip was free. The trip was over a weekend and there were no restrictions on going out of the USA but there were restrictions on coming back into the USA, to get Covid testing done. If we were tested positive, we had to stay back until we tested negative, and only then we could travel back. Even though I was traveling for two days and made up my mind to be as safe as possible, there was a little fear that if I tested positive then I would be stuck for a few days. So, I decided to take my work laptop just in case.
On the second day of vacation, I was to give my Covid testing. That day I felt a little nervous and wanted to make sure that I would be able to log in and work if I was to be tested positive. So I wanted to test my work access and make sure that I could if I needed to stay back. I tested and had no issues accessing my work from outside of the USA. I gave my Covid test and the next day before I was ready to catch my flight back to the USA, I got the result as negative. I flew happily back to the USA and the following day when I tried to log in to work from home my login account was disabled. I tried a couple of times but the same result. I called our helpdesk which acknowledged that the account was disabled and referred me to employee relations. I explained to the Employee relations person about my trip and was told that they need to speak to HR as the restrictions around carrying a laptop outside of the USA were very strict. At this time, I was a little scared and informed them that I had not done any work and was only proactively testing my access so that I could work if I got stuck outside of the USA. I was told someone would get back to me before the end of the day. I called a couple of the managers I report to and updated the situation. They were a little disappointed and said that they had not encountered this before and asked me to wait till I got a call back from HR.
While I waited for the HR call, several thoughts ran through my mind, about how serious this issue would become and what explanations I would need to give. All morning I felt very nervous and kept praying to our Sai and also prayed that if there were no serious employment consequences due to this and if it was resolved that day then I would post an experience on this site. About midafternoon I got a call from HR and the rep was very friendly. She asked me what happened and said that our organization considers using our laptop as a threat from some countries as we do have sensitive customer data. She advised that I should not be doing this and repeated the policy of obtaining prior permission. Then she said that she would have my access enabled in about 15 minutes and I should be good to go.
I should be paying more attention to company policies even though my intent was not malicious. I feel Sai has tested me through this experience and taught me to be more attentive to any responsibilities. If there were any consequences for my employment that would have been worse for my family. I am grateful to our Sai for His blessings on this issue, to not make it a big issue. Om Sai, Sri Sai, Jai Jai Sai.
Sai Baba Helped To Solve Financial Problem
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from Malaysia says: Hi I’m a member of the Sai’s Global Mahaparayan group MP-6551N1. I have just joined this group almost three weeks back.
Sai Ram to everyone, may Baba bless everyone. Today I’m going to share my experience which I had promised Baba that I will post.
This month it’s been a tough month for me and my husband. We are having some financial issues. We don’t have much cash in hand. One fine day when I was taking my dad to the hospital; I parked my car outside to take medicine during my lunchtime and while my dad went in to collect medicine. I put off my engine because I have been waiting for a while. Suddenly when I started my car it was unable to start. It looked like the battery had gone. I had no choice. I decided to contact my friend to help me jump the car battery so that I could start the car. Unfortunately, something happened and burned all the fuse which caused more trouble. That evening we called the tow service to pick up the car. Thanks to Baba as it’s free within 100kms.
I was very worried because I and my husband don’t have much cash in hand. If I was unable to pay then I wouldn’t have the car to use for work. For two days I had sleepless nights thinking of the quotation, so I prayed to Baba. I cried and I told Baba, “Baba, please help me to settle this. Baba, I don’t know how I am going to pay if it’s too expensive.” Today the technician called us to pick up the car; surprisingly we just paid for the service and one plug which was low cost. It was within my budget. I thank Baba for giving back my car and charging me an affordable price. Thanks, Baba, thanks for everything.
My dad’s operation is next week. Doctor asked me to pay by Monday. We are hoping for a miracle, Baba. I know You will help me in a way. Jai Sai Ram!
Sai Baba Helped Son To Sleep Peacefully
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: I am a Sai daughter from India. Thank You Baba for helping my son to sleep peacefully last night. I went to bed with my son at 11 pm and after 01 hours he started crying and didn’t say anything as he is a small kid of only 2.7 years. He was getting up in the night and crying. I was tense. I prayed to Baba to please make him well and let him sleep peacefully. Please cure his stomach pain or anything as because of that he is so restless and crying.
I applied Udi on his stomach and forehead. I read chapter 13 of Sai Satcharitra. Sai Kasht Nivaran mantra and was continuously chanting Sai Ram Raksha Karo for his wellness. He slept peacefully around 3.30 am because of Baba’s grace. ‘Thank You is a small word to show gratitude toward Baba’s grace and love.
1. Udi is the panacea of all diseases.
2. Sai Kasht Nivaran Mantra is very powerful and effective.
Baba, please uproot Corona from this world. Everyone should be happy and healthy.

Sai Is The True Life Saviour
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: Sharing here yet another experience with devotees that happened today (19.01.2022).
Thanks to Hetalji for maintaining this platform. Today my mom got discharged from the hospital after suffering from dengue for the past seven days. It was a hell of a time for me as I was the only one who was taking care of her in the hospital. Finally, Sai increased her platelet count and brought her back home.
Sai also came in the form of a donor who donated additional platelets. Sai, please cure her completely soon and save her from future health issues. Om Sai Shri Sai Jai Jai Sai.
