Sai Baba Gave A Second Chance
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: I’m a housewife in her late 60’s, living in Bangalore and part of a small and loving nuclear family. I would like to start this post with a humble prayer of thanks to Hetalji and her team for the tremendous service they have and continue to perform for Sai Baba devotees across the world with this blog. With a prayer to Baba, I will now narrate my experience.
I have struggled with sciatica on and off for several years now. As many of You may be aware, it’s a painful condition that inhibits the sufferer’s ability to sit, stand or walk – indeed, it severely restricts all movement and forcefully confines you to bed. Even then, the pain from the compressed sciatic nerve continues to radiate from the hip all the way down to the toes of one or both legs, forcing you to constantly change position, keep placing and removing pillows from under your knees – in short, it’s a living hell that doesn’t allow you a moment’s rest from pain and makes your life miserable. This is what I have suffered from, for days at a time at irregular intervals for more than 10 years now but never as bad as this time.
On the morning of 12th March 2022, I was sitting on my stool in the kitchen and had just bent lightly to take utensils from the utensil basket on the ground. Everything was as normal, until suddenly, without warning, I experienced the familiar stabbing pain from my hip to the toes of my left leg but with an intensity and ferocity like never before. I hobbled as quickly as possible to my bed and lay down, emitting small cries as the pain wracked the lower half of my body. From that moment on, every day was torture as I found myself shivering with agony as I tried walking the few paces to my bathroom and then more agony trying to use the toilet and walking back to bed. All I wanted to do was keep lying on the bed and never get up. I was even reduced to brushing my teeth on the bed and spitting into a paper cup, eating my meals while lying on my stomach, and avoiding drinking water as much as possible, for fear of having to answer another call of nature.
As I was in this piteous state, we found a physiotherapist online. I had to wait for several hours before she showed up, as she was attending to another patient. Her treatment started and went on for 15 days and by the end of this period, I was able to walk close to 15 minutes at a time. It felt like I was making progress and my family was looking forward to my recovery. But sadly, after the therapist administered her final session and left, my condition suddenly worsened and I went back to becoming immobile and helpless and living in constant distress. I was very angry with her for having negated all my efforts to progress, with that one botched session, as well as with my fate for having to go through this unending torment. I prayed to Baba that if He got me through this nightmare then I would dedicate a post to Him on Hetalji’s blog.
Fortunately, we found another, well-regarded physiotherapist. It was only thanks to Baba’s grace that this lady, who always received patients only at her clinic and never did home visits, listened to our pleas, drove all the way to our house, and gave me a much more advanced treatment that she promised would help me get back on my feet again quickly. She, however, wanted me to visit her at her clinic next time and refused to come for any further home visits. Once again, I prayed to Baba for help, while the next two days went by and her assistants administered basic treatment to keep me going.
Then a miracle happened! On the morning of the fourth day since the new physiotherapist’s visit, I found the willpower to go to her clinic, which involved the herculean challenges of walking from my flat to the lift and then from the lift to the gate, bending to get into the car, sitting in the car for a prolonged period as we battled traffic and then waiting at her clinic while previous patients were being attended to. To this day, I don’t know how I managed to do this. It was only Baba’s kindness that gave me the strength to perform that impossible task. Since then, 28 days have passed and I have visited the clinic every day, from Monday to Saturday. I am now happy to state that I’m able to walk, in multiple sessions, for 45 or more minutes per day and once even walked 45 minutes at one stretch! Not only this, I can even climb up and down a flight of stairs (15 steps) twice in a row. Feats I could not imagine during the initial days of my condition. These are nothing if not examples of Baba’s blessings at work.
I still have a way to go. I am walking and climbing stairs, as well as performing all the exercises that my physiotherapist has taught me, every single day. The Shraddha (faith) and Saburi (patience) that fuels this determination are Baba’s hands gently leading me down the road to a full recovery. So with a final prayer of gratitude for His presence and love that has taken me from where I was to where I am now and the belief that He will help me recover completely at the earliest, I end this post. Jai Sai Ram!
Sai Baba Is The Saviour
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: I am a small devotee from India. Om Sai Ram. I am experiencing many miracles daily as the blessings of Baba and have shared a couple of them on this platform. Thank you for this great opportunity. Today I am going to share my other two recent experiences.
Experience 1: One day all of a sudden, my husband started feeling very low and we were very much worried and wanted to go for a health check-up for him. I was continuously praying for him and asking Baba to make sure that nothing major problem should be there. We were more worried as his BP levels are also slightly high for quite a long time. Though the medication was not required, he needs to be careful. With Baba’s grace, the doctor has mentioned nothing to be worried about and it was all due to the fewer B12 and D vitamins and that he needs to take those vitamins for a couple of months which was a big relief for us. Thank You so much Baba for taking care of this.
Experience 2: In my office, all of a sudden I had to take up one of my colleague’s work which was in the middle as he had to go on emergency leave due to his mother’s health issues. I was having zero knowledge of that and was not able to get anything during the handover meeting also. He was also in a hurry at the last minute, so I did not even get a chance to get my queries cleared. I was trying to understand it myself and was feeling completely difficult and was literally crying out of that deep pressure. I was continuously praying to Baba to help me to come out of it.
After two or three days of struggle, I was completely hopeless and wanted to report to my manager that I could not do that. Before doing it, I just wanted to ask Baba on the question and answers site as I do it regularly. Baba asked me to wait and said everything will be alright. I was clueless about how it was going to happen. Still, as Baba said I dropped the plan of reaching out to my manager and suddenly I got a reply from a senior person in the team for which I was waiting and he gave me a hint to start with.
From that time, I was continuously talking to him and the other owner of this change and could proceed exactly within a week and visited Baba temple yesterday to thank Him. Today I could even progress further and I am sure Baba will help me to submit the code tomorrow after completing the few more changes required. Baba, it is just because of You that this became possible. Without You, I cannot even imagine how my situation would have been by this time. Thank You very much, Baba.
Please be with me all the time like this. I pray to You to hold my hand and support me in all my work. This job is Your blessing and I know You will take care of me to sustain in this. Thank You for all Your miracles, Baba. Please do some miracle in my daughter’s case also, Baba. I have been begging for years. Sometimes, I feel like You will listen to all my prayers and help me in fulfilling them except, in this case, Baba. Why Baba, why are You keeping quiet about this? You know everything and You know that I am not in a position to answer her valid questions. Baba please take care of this problem as well and make us strong enough. Please give everyone health and peace, Baba. Om Sri Sai Rakshaka Saranam, Deva. Om Sairam. Thank You.
My Sai, My Everything
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: I am a small devotee from Sambalpur Orissa, India.
Recently I encountered many problems. I was as always impatient and full of anxiety. Only Baba knows how I am managing all the things together; starting from my son’s health issues, my husband’s coughing, his job, and addition my health issues too.
Every night, almost every night I pray to Baba for making my son sleep without any problem. I know Baba has lessened many difficulties already but we have to face the results of our karma. Past two months I have been trying my best to do Satcharitra parayan but I have always failed. Maybe Baba has some other plan. But still Baba, please forgive me for not being able to keep my promise. If You will bless me then I will be able to do my parayan. Baba has always been there with my son in his school, helping him and guiding him in every respect. The path is obviously rough but holding Baba’s hand we are walking step by step. Baba, You know what mistakes and blunders I have done till now. Bless me to clear my karma and forgive me. Hold our hands and guide us. Baba, please cure whatever health issues that my son has and my husband’s cough too. Om Sai Ram!
Sai Baba’s Blessings
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from USA says: Namaste to everyone. Hi team, please keep my details anonymous. Thanks to Hetal mam and team for helping us in making our faith stronger in Baba each day by publishing all the experiences. It’s for sure the Modern Satcharitra.
Coming to my experience we had to travel to India due to a family emergency. Baba arranged everything. From the Covid test to booking the tickets, He made sure that we had a safe trip. Thank You so much, Baba.
There was some misunderstanding between my mother and my husband. With Sai Baba’s grace, it has been solved now. Still, my mother is angry about something. I Hope Baba will help her understand things.
Please Baba take care of my health. There are a few things that I don’t want to share with anyone except, You. Please don’t send me to any hospital, I will drink Your Udi daily. Please let it cure.
I want to be independent, Baba. Please bless me with a job. I have been sitting at home for the past 4 years. I feel useless and sad. Please Baba bless me with some job.
Thanks a lot for all Your blessings. Please forgive my mistakes. Bless everyone with good health and happiness. Remove my negative thoughts.
Om Sai Shri Sai Jai Jai Sai!
Test Results Came Negative
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from the USA says: I live in the US with my family. Samartha Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai. I started developing a few symptoms and when I searched online, the suggestions were very scary. I got very nervous and prayed to Baba that if the blood results were not bad and if it was something mild then I would post my experience. I went to the doctor and by the grace of Baba and Ammavaru, it was not what I had imagined. It was a mild infection that can be cured with antibiotics. Sairam. Sri Matre Namaha.
