A Sai Devotee’s Journey Of Surrender And Faith
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Baba Devotee from India says: Dear Hetalji and fellow devotees of Sai Baba, I am Sai Baba’s daughter, but I prefer to call myself “Saiji ki Chotisi Chidiya,” which means Sai’s little sparrow 🐦. Firstly, I would like to extend my heartfelt wishes to Hetalji and her entire team. Thanks to their efforts, we have become one big Sai family. I wholeheartedly appreciate their sincere and continuous involvement in this pious work.
Sai Baba, please continue to bless everyone.
I would like to share another experience with you all. After waiting for almost four years, my son and his family wanted to visit us from the United States. I was very happy but also worried about the pandemic. As you all know, it’s not entirely gone, and with a small child, how safe it would be to travel at this time was a concern. They also wanted to visit four to five different states within 20 days. My son had planned everything, including hotel and airline bookings, and I didn’t want to upset him, so I agreed to join them.
If everything were normal, like before, their visit would have felt like a blessed day for me. However, my mind was restless, and fear would creep in at times because of the uncertain situation. I was very confused and could not make the right decision. In such situations, I always believe that surrendering to our Sadguru Sai Savior is the only solution. Therefore, I sincerely prayed for Sai Baba’s guidance and left everything to Him, promising to share it here as soon as my Deva showed me the right path.
As days passed, my restless mind kept intensely praying nonstop. My only concern was the safety of my family. Deep down, I was sure that Sai Baba would take care of everything. He never disappoints His devotees if they firmly believe in Him. He is very kind and compassionate, and my favorite Deva, my Sarwasva!
At the right time, my son came to know about compulsory quarantine days after arriving here, which would not allow them to visit different places, and that would spoil their entire plan. He then called me to say that he was canceling his visit for now and would wait for all things to get back to normal.
Dear all, I feel that this is nothing less than a miracle for me. Sai Baba knows what is best for His devotees and when. When we know that Sai Baba is there, there is no need to fear, and firmly believing in Him, I felt restless until I received the answers.
This is my weakness, and I acknowledge it, Deva. Please help me understand the real meaning of “Samarpan” (total surrender).
“Paap Taap Nivaarun, Thev Aata Shiri Maajya (Aamchya) Krupecha Kar Panjar” means “Ward off my sins and worries and keep Your blessing hand on my (our) head.” Sai Baba, please continue to bless us.
Koti koti pranaam, my Saibaba.
Miracles Of Sai Baba: Experiences Of Divine Intervention In Daily Life
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Baba Devotee from USA says: Om Sai Ram 🙏🙏🙏 Please keep my name and email ID anonymous. Baba, please forgive me for neglecting to share so many of your miracles. I am very sorry, Baba. I want to thank everyone who is working on this blog. Baba will bless you all.
Experience 1: We are staying in the USA. Last year, in December, we went to India when the situation was good. However, since April, the situation has been very bad. In almost every home, there is at least one COVID-positive case. In my home, my mom, dad, and I were positive, and my small kid had a fever. I felt scared, and I took Baba’s name. I chanted “Om Sai Rakshaka Shranam,” and it worked like a miracle. By Baba’s grace, my son didn’t suffer much, and he recovered in one day. Thank you very much, Baba. We recovered quickly, and Baba showed his presence when I was very low. Baba, thank you is a very small word. Baba, please remove this virus 🙏🙏🙏.
Experience 2: When I was in India, I wanted to give my mom a robotic mop because she struggled a lot to mop the house every day. I wanted to make her job easier, and it worked fine for 15 days. However, it suddenly stopped working, and I felt sad. I took Baba’s name, and my mom said to keep charging it for some time and leave it to Baba. I did that, and by Baba’s grace, it started working again. Thank you very much. She is using it very happily.
Experience 3: We booked tickets to the USA using Air India, and while booking the tickets, the waiting time in Delhi was 5 hours. I thought it was fine, but after 15 days, it showed 8 hours in Delhi. I felt it would be hard with my kid, and I prayed to Baba that my husband would say okay to cancel. By Baba’s grace, he agreed to cancel, and we booked tickets through another airline. However, I heard that Air India takes years to refund. I prayed to Baba to get my refund back, and by Baba’s grace, it took one and a half months to two months to get my refund. Thank you, Baba.
Experience 4: We returned to the USA in June, and at that time, I was not vaccinated, and I needed to travel with my kid. I was very scared, but with Baba’s grace, we reached safely. Thank you very much, Baba.
Experience 5: After returning to the USA, I wanted to perform Varalakshmi Vratam. Before going to the USA, I kept all my silver pooja items in one place and went to India. Now, I couldn’t find one of the items, and I searched a lot, but to no avail. At that time, I prayed to Baba and promised to post here if I found the item. I searched once again, and miraculously, I found it. I felt very happy and thanked Baba. Thank you, Baba. I performed Varalakshmi Vratam very nicely for the first time. Thank you, Baba 🙏🙏.
Experience 6: We rented an apartment, and our housewarming was approaching. At that time, I borrowed some puja silver items from my friends. However, after we moved to our new home, I couldn’t find them. I was extremely worried because they belonged to someone else, and I didn’t want to replace them with different items. I felt very disheartened and prayed to Sai Baba to help me find them. I searched once again, and Baba answered my prayers. I found those items! Thank you so much, Sai Baba. If I hadn’t found them, I would have felt very upset. Thank you for saving me.
Experience 7: While shifting to our new home, I misplaced my phone and forgot where I had kept it. To make matters worse, the battery was running low, and I had left my charger at my new home. My husband was not at home, and I couldn’t call my phone to find it. I even went to my neighbor’s house, but they were not there. I was extremely tense and prayed to Sai Baba to help me find my phone. After 15 minutes, I found it in another bedroom. Thank you so much, Sai Baba. I was so worried because it would have been difficult to find my phone if it had run out of battery. Thank you for showing me my phone before the battery died.
Experience 8: One day, while I was at my old home, my child was jumping on the couch, and he slipped and fell, injuring his head badly. He was bleeding heavily, and I was terrified. I took Sai Baba’s name, and we rushed to the hospital. While we were on our way, I kept chanting “Om Sai Ram.” The doctor checked my child and said that there was no internal injury. I felt relieved and believed that Sai Baba had saved my child from significant danger. Thank you so much, Sai Baba. I bow down to you with all my heart.
Experience 9: With Baba’s grace, we were able to move into our new home and even had a housewarming ceremony with invited guests. However, some of our neighbors’ guests who attended their housewarming ceremony tested positive for COVID-19. This news scared us a lot, and we prayed to Baba that no one should be affected badly. By Baba’s grace, the affected people had only mild symptoms. Although my child and I had cold symptoms, we prayed to Baba that we should not test positive and that we would share the experience if we did not. Miraculously, our home test result came back negative. Thank you very much, Baba, for listening to our prayers and saving us from this virus. If we had tested positive, we would have felt very bad about the house too.
Experience 10: In India, my mother has been sick for the past 3 to 4 days, and I can’t bear to see her in this condition. She took a COVID test, and the results showed that she has a cough, cold, body pains, and other symptoms. I was scared and prayed to Sai Baba. I chanted “Om Sai Rakshaka Shranam” and, after three days, received the result that she was COVID positive. However, by the grace of Sai Baba, she is doing well with only mild symptoms. Thank you very much, Sai Baba. I ask for your help in curing my mother’s headache, which she has suffered from for many years. She has consulted many doctors but to no avail. Please save her, Sai Baba, and make my parents healthy and happy. Please also save the world from this virus.
Experience 11: I ordered a product from an online website based on reviews and refund policies. They informed me that they would refund 50% of the amount after receiving the product. I received the product and messaged them, but they didn’t refund the amount even after one and a half days. It was challenging to return the product, and I was afraid because it was a significant amount for me. I prayed to Sai Baba, and in the next minute, I casually opened my email and saw the message about the refund amount. Thank you very much, Sai Baba 🙏🙏🙏. If I didn’t receive the refund, it would have been challenging to return the product.
Baba, we pray that you remove this virus from the world and save everyone. Thank you for protecting us and keeping us safe. Om Sai Ram 🙏🙏🙏
Sai Baba, everything in my life is your blessing. Please be with me always and never leave us. Thank you for attending the housewarming function and for creating positive vibes. I am sorry for sharing these experiences late. Please forgive me, Sai Baba.
Sai Smaranam Shankata Haranam, Baba Shranam Bava Baya Haranam.
Miraculous Encounters With Sai Baba
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Baba Devotee from India says: Jai Sai Ram to all Sai Baba bhaktas, and my koti koti pramaan at our Sai Baba’s Holy Lotus Feet. I would like to express my gratitude to the organizers of this pious blog and thank them for allowing me to share my experience anonymously.
Sai Baba has showered His grace upon me, and I feel that every breath I take is His blessing. Thank you is a small word to express my gratitude for His kindness. Baba’s holy lotus feet have inspired me to share my latest experience. I humbly request the readers to bear with my writing.
By Baba’s grace, I was able to secure a job beyond my dreams and expectations, after losing my job at the start of the lockdown in April 2020. For almost 16 months, I struggled to even receive an interview call. I thought it was over for me and started applying for junior roles. However, even those opportunities did not go beyond the first round.
My frustration and stress levels were high, and I felt helpless as work was my only passion since I started working at a young age. However, Baba knew what was best for me, and I trusted His plan. Although the wait of 16 months was tough and extremely difficult, I was in supreme bliss, and words fail to explain it. I can only relate to it by taking an example from chapter 32 of Sai Satcharitra, ‘In the Quest of Guru or God’ – “He took me to a well, tied My feet with a rope, and hung me…and I fared in bliss supreme.”
During this time, I felt Baba very close to me. I performed the miraculous Sai Baba Nav Guruvar Vrat along with Namahsaptah and prayed wholeheartedly for Baba’s holy feet’s kindness to help me find a job. I also sent an online prayer on the Shirdibaba.org website. Additionally, I have been a member of the Mahaparayan group for the past year. The wonder of wonders, during the first week of Baba’s Nav Guruvar Vrat, I received a call from a company. After the interview, I thought to myself that it was not possible to get such a position as I had lost my confidence. However, something inside me said to keep trying, and the way the entire hiring process progressed is beyond me to express. It was as if it wasn’t me who appeared or prepared for the interview. Then, on the day of Guru Purnima, I received Baba’s prasad in the form of an offer letter from the company for my dream position. My date of joining was 16/08/2021 = 9. I am nobody, not even a speck in the universe of Sai Baba’s bhaktas. My only means of recognition and place is at my Baba’s Holy Lotus Feet. May this knowledge last till my last breath at His feet.
My husband and I were returning from my in-laws’ place, and while on our way back to Delhi, we stopped for some refreshments. When we started the car, it gave a problem with the ignition and just wouldn’t start. It had already given a similar problem in the morning before starting the journey and took about 30 minutes to start. This time we were in the middle of the highway, and it was getting dark.
My husband and I started praying to Sai Baba for His kind help, and at the same time, we were trying hard to start the car. By the grace of Sai Baba’s Holy Lotus Feet, the car started within 10 minutes. What a relief! After that, the journey was smooth and easy. We reached home safely without any further trouble. Thank you so much, Sai Baba, for making your presence felt by an ignorant soul like me.
I recently traveled from Germany to India during the New Year holidays to visit the Shirdi temple and my parents. Due to travel restrictions, I needed to have a negative COVID report before checking in for my flight, in addition to having received a double dose of vaccination. Although I took a test that promised a report within 24 hours, it didn’t come at the expected time. Chanting Sai Baba’s name, I went to the airport and got another test done, which was to give a report in 90 minutes, but that too did not come on time.
The airline personnel informed me that they could not allow me to check in without a negative report. I requested they let me try and wait in the check-in queue until the last passenger, and they allowed me to do so. During this time, I kept chanting Sai Baba’s name for his protection and help. As the queue became smaller, my anxiety increased as there were very few people remaining for check-in. Then, when it was my turn, a miracle happened. I received an email from my first test result (which was promised within 24 hours) of a negative report, which I showed at the counter for my boarding pass. Throughout this entire time, I kept refreshing the test results page and my email box, hoping for an update, but there was nothing.
It was all due to Sai Baba’s blessing. I prayed to Sai Baba to let me visit Shirdi to see His Holy Lotus Feet and to help me board the flight. Throughout my prayers, I kept receiving messages on Facebook and other sites that said, “You will have your problem solved in the morning,” and “Have faith and patience.”
Sometimes it is enough to be heard, and the way my Sai hears is beyond the knowledge of existence. My humble prayer to all is to know that He is listening. Call Him from the bottom of your heart, where Sai resides! Sorry for the late post-Baba. Jai Sai Ram. May Baba bless all at His Holy Lotus Feet. My Sai always rescues his devotees on time. I feel incredibly blessed in this human life to feel Sai Baba’s presence. Thank you, Sai Baba, for every breath. May your presence remain with me until my last and beyond.
Sai Baba’s Blessing Saves Unborn Baby
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Baba Devotee from India says: This is Baba’s daughter and I would like to remain anonymous. I would like to express my gratitude to Hetal Ji and her team for creating this platform, where I can share my experiences and Baba’s blessings on my family.
I am happy to share that I have a beautiful granddaughter, who is Baba’s grace. Recently, my daughter was pregnant with her second baby, which was also a girl. However, she encountered several problems during her first pregnancy and was equally going through issues with the second one.
During her 16-week appointment, my daughter received some troubling news from her scan. The doctors discovered that the baby had a split lip, and her cord was thin, with a low-lying placenta. We were devastated to hear this news, and I immediately cried in front of Baba, begging Him to save this little baby who had not even entered this world. I promised Baba that I would share the good news with other devotees if everything turned out okay after the next scan.
Thankfully, when my daughter went for another scan at 20 weeks, the doctors did not notice any problems, and the baby was doing fine. I am immensely grateful to Baba for His mercy and for saving that little baby. I pray to Him to keep both the mother and the baby under His protective fold. When Baba is with us, there is no need to worry. We love Hou, Deva Sai.
A Devotee’s Experience Of Sai Baba’s Protection
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Baba Devotee from India says: Dear Hetal, I recently came across your work and wanted to thank you for all that you do. May Sai Baba bless you for your efforts. I have been reading the blogs about Shirdi’s Sai Baba, and I am eagerly awaiting the publication of the remaining chapters.
I would like to share my experience with Sai Baba with you. Please keep me anonymous if you decide to share this on your platform.
My story is that I have been a devoted follower of Sai Baba for the past two and a half years. As it says in “Shri Sai Satcharitra” Chapter 50, “I draw to me my man from far off or even across the seven seas, like a sparrow with a string fastened to its feet.” This is exactly what happened to me. I was suddenly drawn to Sai Baba and His teachings, and within a short time, I became his devoted follower with unwavering faith in him.
I want to share one of my recent experiences with Sai Baba. Over the weekend, I was feeling unwell with a sore throat and a fever that was not subsiding. Given the current situation, I was afraid it could be COVID and prayed to Baba to protect me and help me recover quickly. I vowed to share my story with others if my fever did not increase after taking Udi mixed with water and if I recovered quickly. After taking the vow and having Udi mixed with water, my fever started to come down, and soon it became normal. I took a COVID test the next day, which came back positive, but I was asymptomatic and felt fine for the next two days.
I am grateful to Sai Baba for always being with me and protecting me. Thank you, Hetal, for giving me this opportunity to share my experience.
Sai Baba’s Divine Intervention: A Personal Account Of Recovery From An Online Account Issue
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Baba Devotee from India says: Om Sai Ram, I express my gratitude to Hetalji and the team for providing this platform. I kindly request you keep my identity anonymous.
As Baba’s daughter, I have been unable to read Sai Charitra or engage in any religious activities due to personal reasons. Recently, when I lost access to an important online account, I was at a loss as to what to do. However, when I considered seeking help from Sai, doubts began to arise in my mind. Would Baba still help me, considering that I have not been a devoted follower?
Despite my apprehensions, I decided to seek Baba’s help, knowing that He never abandons His children in times of crisis. And true to form, Baba came to my aid and helped me recover my account within a day, even though I had almost given up hope.
I am grateful to Baba for always being there for me, and for making me feel safe and secure in His presence. Baba, You are God in Sai form, and I thank You from the bottom of my heart.
Om Sai Ram 🙏🏻
