Sai Baba Always Listens
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from USA says: I am Baba’s daughter. I want to be anonymous. This experience was written by my husband.
Om Shri Sai Nathaya Namah – Unbelievable grace and kindness of Baba.
I have no words to narrate this miracle of my beloved Baba Who time and again makes me realize that He is always with me and protecting me. Although I am a devotee of Baba and always try to be on the right path and do the right things as propagated in Shri Sai Satcharitra, I feel my wife’s unflinching faith and devotion in Baba is not only making Him protect me but my whole family since we have come to know Him.
This incident happened today, October 4, 2022. I live in the US and had come to Bangkok on a business trip and my wife had accompanied me. On arriving here I wanted to use Uber for commuting to various places but came to know that there was no Uber in Thailand but an app called Grab which was very similar and quite good. I did use this app to hire cabs 3 to 4 times which was as convenient as Uber. Today, my wife and I went to visit Wat Arun and after that, we wanted to visit Emerald Buddha. We thought of going to Emerald Buddha by ferry service from Wat Arun but lost our way and ended up in the wrong place. However, we both enjoyed this new place with lots and lots of street food and even tried some vegetarian food and fruits before booking a cab via the Grab app to go to the Emerald Buddha temple. Since I was waiting for the cab in a very busy traffic area with not a clear mark where I was waiting for him, I kept texting the driver about my location and so I was holding my phone in my hand. He finally picked us up and since I was holding two umbrellas and an iced tea in both my hands I kept the phone on the seat of the car. When we reached our destination, there was a partial closure and so the cab turned around near our destination, and my wife and I quickly got out of the cab. I, in haste, had left my phone in the car. Immediately after getting out, I realized my mistake but I had no way to communicate with the cab driver as I had booked him through the app and I had lost the phone which had the app. A passerby told me to contact the police nearby, in front of the Emerald Buddha temple, immediately who might be able to help.
While I rushed to the police, I asked my wife to wait there in case the driver discovers the phone and comes back to return it. I was muttering Baba’s name in my mind while heading for the police and my wife was also doing the same standing there. The police were very cordial and offered me a seat and a bottle of water and asked me for my number so that he could call that number to alert the driver but when I told them that it was a US number and he couldn’t call it, he tried to find other ways to locate the cab. Then after a couple of minutes, he asked me to walk to the nearby police station and inform them so that they could help. On my way to the police station, I thought we should try from my wife’s US phone to call my phone. But my smart and intelligent wife, who has a much better presence of mind than mine, had already done so without any success when I met her. We even tried to call my number through WhatsApp. That also didn’t work. She had also left a few text messages. I asked her to wait there and rushed to the police station. It took me around 15 minutes to locate the police station because it was very difficult to communicate with the local people who do not understand English. But I realized one thing for sure Thai people are extremely helpful and go out of their way to help.
Finally, when I reached the police station, a police officer who was standing outside the police station came rushing to me and asked what my problem was as if sent by Baba to help me. When I told him the reason, he took me inside and asked me questions to help me but I had no answers to make his job easier. Then he asked me the exact location where the cab dropped us so that he could look at the CCTV footage to identify the cab and try to locate it. I told him that I could point out the place but couldn’t name it as I was not familiar with the place. Then three police officers in a police car came with me to the spot. My wife was still standing there and praying to Baba all the time while trying to call my number several times. One of the police officers took a photo of both of us and asked us to come with them to the police station so that they could look at the CCTV footage. On our way back, my wife tried to call my number again through WhatsApp, and a surprise of surprise, the phone started ringing which had not happened till then. Was it not Baba’s miracle? The driver picked up and my wife immediately gave the phone to the police officer so that he could communicate with him in the local language to bring the phone to the police station. The cab driver who had already picked up another passenger dropped that passenger and then came to the police station and returned the phone.
When I saw my phone, I just couldn’t believe my eyes. Is it possible to recover my phone in an unknown place, where I had no information to provide to the police and where it was difficult to even communicate with anyone? Yes, when Baba’s grace is there everything is possible. I have had Baba’s grace on multiple occasions in the past when He reminded me that He was always beside me and protecting me, but this experience exceeded all my previous experiences. While I am writing this experience in my hotel room, I still can’t believe that my phone is back with me after all the drama. While we were returning from the police station to our hotel, both my wife and I decided that I should write about this experience right away before I do anything else. I wanted to share this experience with the innumerable devotees of our beloved Baba and to let them know that whoever is in a difficult situation our merciful Baba will surely come to his/her rescue. Dear devotees, you have read many such miracles of Baba and my experience is one more to confirm your faith in Him. My utmost regards to Hetal ji for creating this blog and sharing devotees’ experiences and spreading the love of Baba in the whole world. May Baba bless her and her team as well as millions of His devotees across the globe. Om Sai, Shri Sai, Jai Jai Sai.
Met Sai Baba In Form Of An Old Man In Shirdi
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: I would like to share my experience regarding how an old man helped me to clear my CA final exam.
I am a CA student. I always used to believe in hard work rather than luck. I cleared my IPCC and CPT with very good scores but got stuck in the final exams. I used to work very hard but couldn’t clear. After my results, I used to analyze the reasons for my failures and got to know that every time I failed due to some external factors but not because of a lack of hard work. Some factors which were not in my hands were becoming hurdles to my success. This continued for three attempts. I finally got exhausted and started to feel less confident, doubted my hard work, and started to believe for the first time in my life that luck matters here. How to gain luck; which was not in my hands? Meanwhile, all my friends cleared CA and started their careers.
I used to go to Shirdi with my family at least once a year since 2016. In 2018 after my third attempt results we started to Shirdi. We started from Hyderabad to Nagarsol by train. Every time we go by train to Nagarsol, then we reach Shirdi by taxi. We follow the same way for return too. It takes one night journey. We started to Shirdi by train. Everyone slept but I couldn’t sleep properly. Many thoughts regarding my failures disturbed my sleep. I felt so depressed and was crying continuously, not knowing the reasons for my failures. I started to feel like my life was filled with darkness and couldn’t see any path. I started to think and was asking Sai Baba for the first time in my life, “Why are You not showing any mercy on me? I did so much hard work and went through my exams but I am not knowing what extra should be done to clear my exams. Please at least give me a hint on how to proceed forward. I am coming to Shirdi tomorrow, and if You are really There then please at least give me a hint that You are there for me and help me to move forward in my life.” In this way I spoke to Baba for the whole night, crying and asking Baba for help. That is for the very first time in my life that I felt like I had prayed to God wholeheartedly as I had no choice and my life was filled with darkness not knowing the reasons for my failures, how much ever I tried to find them.
The next day morning we reached Shirdi and finished darshan. I again prayed wholeheartedly. That very evening we returned to Nagarsol by 7:30. We had our train at approximately 9. Every time on the return journey we used to eat at station Tiffin center on the platform at Nagarsol. We were very hungry. My mother, father, sister, and I were waiting for dosas. My father went to bring them. Meanwhile, an old man came to my sister with a book in his hand. My sister and I were standing on the platform. There were many passengers around us. The old man came to us. We thought that He was trying to sell books. My sister immediately told him that we were not interested in buying. We were so hungry and we couldn’t even reply to him properly. We were ignoring him.
He came to me and said, “Your sister doesn’t need this book but I bought this for you. I am not a bookseller. I have been giving this book to so many people for many years. I am waiting for the same train. There are many passengers, kids, here but I am giving this book only to you, take it.”
I told him sorry and took that book. Later he told me, “I know you were struggling in your career and I will give you one mantra from this book. Read this daily 11 times and you will succeed.”
He also told me, “You were struggling because you do so much hard work but you lack daiva bhakthi. You always feel that if you work hard and that’s enough for you to reach your goal. You just pray to God just like that. You do not focus on God while praying. You believe only in your hard work but hard work without daiva bhakthi or Guru’s blessings doesn’t help you. This book has mantras for many problems.” He told me that page number and mantra and I was for a minute thinking this might be the solution that Baba had sent me. Later everyone around us started to talk to him, discussing mantras in the book. The train had arrived and everyone left. He gave his phone number in the book too.
I started my preparation for the fourth time. I was not able to do the same hard work because I had already studied three times. Every day without any break I read mantras 11 times and prayed to Sai Baba.
The exam date arrived and after writing my first exam I was very low and couldn’t finish the paper on time and felt very depressed and cried for so long thinking that I might fail this time for sure. I regained confidence and wrote the rest of the papers without much preparation.
Finally, on the result day, I was so shocked to know that I had not only passed but scored very good marks for the first exam. This was a big miracle for me and this was the foundation for my belief in Sai Baba from that time many more miracles started to happen in my life.
Later I searched for a book to contact him as he gave me his phone number in the book but couldn’t find the book.
I would like to share that mantra here. Please do read it 11 times wholeheartedly and this will definitely help you to get success in your studies.
“Vidwatsutha Mavidyam Ya Agatham Loka Ninditham!
Bhinna Jighvam Bhudham Chakre Shree Datta Sharanam Mama!”
One more miracle is regarding a baby for my sister. It has been two years since she got married and she was having PCOS and my brother-in-law was not showing any interest in the baby. She started to suffer a lot. She started to feel very low, and depressed and my mother took her to some astrologers they were told that she would take more time to conceive and had to perform some pujas. I prayed to Baba to help my sister change my brother-in-law’s mind to have a baby and would share the miracle here if that happened. I made my sister join the Global Mahaparayan group and asked her to believe in Sai Baba. Within three weeks of joining the Mahaparayan group, she conceived. She is so happy now. All thanks to Sai Baba. Will share some more miracles in the near future.
Anantha Koti Brahmand Nayak Raja Dhiraj Yogi Raj Parbharhma Shri Sadchitananda Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai!
Om Sainathaya Namah.
Sai Baba Blessed With A Kid
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: Hello Hetalji, I am from India, and please make this post anonymous. I would like to share an experience on behalf of my brother who is also a great believer in Sai. My whole family believes in Sai. During all of our good and bad times, we have always felt Sai’s Presence. I have promised Baba that will share this experience once my niece is six months so please share this experience in your blog.
One such miracle is, my brother and sister-in-law are married for eight years and since trying for a baby. They met many doctors and did all the radiological and blood tests as prescribed but there was no single fault in any one of them. All reports came out to be normal. But somehow was not able to conceive. They tried three cycles of IUI but still, there was no success. Then they started the following fasting, did daily poojas, met many astrologers and followed all the things that were said to them, and at last, decided to go for IVF. IVF being an expensive procedure and my brother not so financially stable was in a dilemma – how all the things will be managed. But with Sai’s grace and blessings in only one cycle, the embryo was implanted in my sister-in-law and soon fetus started growing as in normal pregnancy. Seven months, everything was going fine and suddenly sister-in-law’s BP shot up and was given heavy medicines, and injections to keep her BP under control. Every day BP was monitored and we all prayed to Sai to safely just pass 1 to 1.5 months more as we were scared of premature birth. Since the time was a lockdown period it was always a scare of the corona. She has to go to the hospital multiple time for checkups and one fine day in the mid of the 7th month, my sister-in-law was admitted to the hospital at midnight since her BP was not going down even after heavy medications. On multiple occasions, the gynecologist who was taking care was also somewhat not so confident and her support that is needed by a patient during a crisis was also missing but due to corona time they cannot change the doctor as changing a doctor would mean changing a hospital which we do not know will be covid free or not. Anyway, so the day she was admitted, luckily her BP came under control, and was discharged in two days. Then her doctor said we have to deliver the baby on exactly the 36th week i.e end of the 8th month and the baby’s weight is also slowly growing so delivery is necessary. The baby has not reached the weight of a minimum of 2 kg. The day was fixed as Thursday for delivery and the doctor informed prior that after delivery baby would require NICU stay for eight or more days. The day of delivery arrived and a baby girl was born with a full oxygen level, no breathing issues, and absolutely no NICU. The only concern was the baby was underweight weighing 1.75 kg which can be easily tackled with nutrition. And today while writing this, my niece is six months old and she is healthy gaining her weight as desired.
Our faith that day in Sai increased tenfold. And now by default if any problem comes up on Thursday we have faith that Sai is with us and if any new thing we have to start, then we remember and do it on Thursday if possible.
And out of this, I can say Sai not only delivered the baby safely but also kept Corona-free during this complete time when corona was at its peak.
Thanks To Dear Thandri Sai Baba
Om Sai Shree Sai Jai Jai Sai. Om Shree Sai Nathaya Namaha. Jai Sitaram Jai Hanuman. I would like to share two recent miracles of Sai Baba. Firstly, my sister had severe back pain. As she was so scared and worried about that pain, I prayed to my dear Sai Baba and Lord Hanuman to please cure her of pain and that I would share the experience here on the blog. My Hanuman and Baba cured her. Now she is fine by my God’s grace. Thanks dear Sai Baba and Lord Hanuman for everything. Please Thandri, take care of my chelli as she is still taking the depression pills. She has to stop taking that pills by Your grace. She has to be fine without taking pills also. Please make her happy and healthy. Please take care of her, Thandri. Please forgive her mistakes. Please bless her and her family, Thandri.
The second experience is regarding my son who was complaining about a few things for a few months and was overthinking about small things like his glasses, OCD, other abstract connections, etc. as it affects his focus on reading and he was worried about that too much. I was also worried about this and so I prayed to my Lord Hanuman and dear Sai Baba to take care of my son and to please make him happy, healthy, and to give him a strong mind. make him physically and mentally strong, Thandri. By God’s grace, he is doing fine now. I know my Hanuman and Sai Baba and all my Gods will take care of my son. Thanks Thandri Hanuman and Sai Baba for all Your blessings. Please forgive all of my sins and be sorry for my mistakes if I have done them knowingly or unknowingly. Please bless me and my family and my sister’s families and also everyone in the world. Sarvejana Sukhino Bhavanthu. You are my father, mother, teacher, guide, guru, and everything. Please protect us from evil eyes, Thandri Sai Baba. Thanks to Hetalji and the team for your wonderful service. Om Shree Sai Nathaya Namaha.
Sai Baba – A Helping Friend
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says: I am a tiny droplet of the Ocean Sai who always wishes to be at His lotus feet.
I am a working man and at my workplace was given an assignment that was a little difficult for me. I had to finish the task on the same day and without any mistakes. But anyhow I managed to finish the task in a time-bound manner and submitted the same. But even after that, I was a bit anxious because my senior is very strict and he used to check every assignment thoroughly. So I prayed a lot to my Sai Baba that there should not be any major mistakes in my work and he should be satisfied with my work. With Baba’s grace, all things went very well and a few minor mistakes were pointed out by him which I rectified on the spot. Always pray to Baba and he will surely help you in any way. Om Sai Rakshak Sharnam Deva. Om Sairam!
