Sai Baba’s Blessings: A Devotee’s Journey Of Faith And Miracles
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Baba devotee from USA says: Om Sai Ram. I am an anonymous devotee of Sai Baba from Pune, currently residing in the USA. I am a member of MP 2987 group and joined the Sai Mahaparayan group in 2019. However, my association with Sai Baba began in 1993 when He graciously accepted me at His feet. Over the past three decades, I have been blessed with numerous experiences that can fill a small book. Sai Baba has granted me everything I wished for, and I feel compelled to share my experiences.
He has protected me and my family from all evils and fulfilled all my desires for almost 30 years. Whenever I was in trouble and needed anything to be resolved, I prayed to Shree Sai, and He immediately granted my wishes. My belief is that if I approach Baba with Shraddha (faith), He gives me Darshan in any form and grants my wishes. I will share some of my significant experiences here.
In 2000, I received a call for an interview from a reputable company in Mumbai. I was eager to secure the job and offered a donation to the poor while praying to Baba for His blessings. Unfortunately, I did not get the job, and I accepted Baba’s decision. However, six months later, I received a call from a well-known TATA group company, and without any trouble, I got selected. I asked for a 50% hike, but to my surprise, they gave me a 135% hike from my current salary. I was speechless and amazed by Sai Baba’s blessings. I learned that if Baba doesn’t grant your wish, He has bigger plans for you. Trust Him and wait for His timing as He always gives more than what you wished for.
In 2006, I traveled to Mumbai from the US to visit my relatives. Unfortunately, I left my brand new DSLR camera in an Auto Riksha. When I realized what had happened, we went to search for the Auto driver, but he was already gone. We went to the Auto Riksha stand and asked other drivers if they knew where he had gone. They told us he had gone to the railway station and from there he would go home. We prayed to Sai Baba during the journey to the station, asking for His help in finding the camera. Along the way, we saw Baba in a shop, which eased our stress and tension. Baba assured me that I would find my camera. We arrived at the station and asked about the Auto driver, and we were told that he had already left for home but left the camera at the office. The officer recognized us and gave us the camera. I was amazed by Baba’s grace, as losing something in a city like Mumbai and getting it back is a great miracle. Sai Baba put the right people in my life to fulfill my wishes and give me success.
When I returned to India in 2010, I did not receive my visa to go back to the US. I prayed to Baba to grant me the visa, but it did not happen. I accepted Baba’s decision and served in His temple for around five months while trying to find a job in India. After six months, I found a good job and decided to settle down in India. I never had any job issues until 2016. I have been doing Saicharitra parayana every year since 2006. In 2011, on the last day of parayana, I asked Baba to come to our home for Udyapana. To my surprise, while my son and I were in the market buying some stuff, we saw a person selling posters of Sai Baba. My son chose a beautiful poster, and we brought it home to do pooja and offer Naivedya to Baba. Baba fulfilled our wish and came to our home for the Udyapana. For the next four years, Baba came to our home for Parayana Udyapana, sometimes in person and sometimes in photo form. We feel so blessed that Baba showered His love and blessings on us.
In February 2016, I lost my job, and I did not have a fixed source of income until October 2021. Despite this, Baba always provided me with enough money to live a good life through my small projects. In 2019, my wife and I joined the Sai Maharayana group MP2987, and since then, many good things have happened in our lives. Baba has always protected us from bad things and illnesses. In 2019, I tried again to go to the US but was unsuccessful. In 2020, the world experienced the COVID-19 pandemic. Baba protected me from getting into bad situations and gave me a worry-free life for myself and my family. During the COVID-19 pandemic, I ran a restaurant and had to be in contact with many people, but neither I nor anyone from my family got COVID-19. This was Baba’s grace, and He protected all of us from the deadly virus.
In 2021, I made another attempt to go to the US and was pleasantly surprised when my petition was approved quickly. I immediately began looking for available visa dates and joined a group where other candidates had been waiting for two to six months for an appointment. I prayed to Sai Baba and, to my amazement, I was able to secure the date I wanted (Oct 14 & 15th) on my first attempt, while many others were still waiting for their dates.
On Sept 24th, while helping others in the group, my VAC appointment got rescheduled to Sept 26th and my Consular appointment to Oct 4th, leaving me with only five days before my VAC appointment. I was extremely worried because I was still waiting for some important documents from my employer. With the help of Baba’s blessings, I received the documents three days before my VAC appointment. Although I had to travel to Delhi twice from Pune for the appointments, I was confident that I would get my visa on the first attempt. However, my case went into admin processing, and I was left with no choice but to wait and trust Baba. After five months of waiting, my visa was finally approved and stamped.
Upon arriving in the US, I began searching for a new job and prayed to Baba to grant me one as soon as possible. Within three weeks, I was blessed with a job that I had thought was difficult to get. I was so overwhelmed by Baba’s blessings that I cannot express my feelings in words.
In October 2022, when inflation started rising in the US and around the world, our company laid off a few employees, leaving me under tremendous tension. Once again, I turned to Baba for guidance and prayed to Him every day. As a result, He renewed my project for one year, which was beyond my expectations. I was astonished, speechless, and immensely grateful to Baba for his choicest blessings.
Baba has always been a divine Father, Mother, Brother, Sister, Friend, and everything in my life. He guides me towards good things in life, forgives me for my mistakes, and gives me His Charano ka Takiya (His feet pillow). I am extremely grateful and thankful to Baba for being in my life and showering His love, grace, blessings, and forgiveness on me and my family.
I feel blessed that wherever I go, Baba is always there for me. There is a Baba’s temple right behind my apartment in Hyderabad, and in Pune, there is a temple just a minute’s walk away. Baba’s temples are also close to my sister’s, brother’s, and in-law’s homes, as well as my place in the US. Even when I don’t have a car, Baba always makes arrangements for me to go to the temple when I wish to go by sending my friends to pick me up.
In conclusion, Baba has made my life beautiful and effortless and has rewarded me for all my hard work. He is great, powerful, loving, and caring, and he fulfills all our wishes and knows everything about us. All we need to do is trust him and wait for His blessings. Thank You, Baba, for everything. I love You, Deva.
How Praying to Sai Baba Helped Achieve Academic and Professional Success
Anonymous Shirdi Sai devotee from Mauritius says: The separation was a brutal experience for my family, with dreadful accusations being thrown on both sides. I was in my last two years of college when it happened. Unfortunately, I failed a class due to the stress and disruption caused by the separation. However, in hindsight, I am grateful for the extra time I had to prepare for my exams after repeating the year.
Due to privacy concerns, I am unable to disclose the reasons for my parents’ separation. Nevertheless, it led to me taking on household responsibilities, which was a challenging task. The financial issues at the time made it even more difficult, and I had to stop taking tuition due to a lack of funds. Instead, I had to do household chores and study simultaneously. Giving up the private tuition allowed me to cook food during that time, and I would revise my studies late into the night, sometimes until 3 am. I would then wake up early, prepare tea and lunch for school, and go to college. After college, I would return home and start the same routine all over again, cooking and cleaning, and revising late into the night.
I struggled with my General paper (English) class, often receiving D’s and E’s for grades. However, passing this class was crucial for me to secure a scholarship at a university in London, as they were offering only two scholarships. Unfortunately, I couldn’t compete for a government scholarship due to my poor O’Level results, which were affected by my family problems.
Then, one day I found a Shirdi Sai 9 Thursday’s Vrat book on my altar, which had probably been there for a long time unused. I read it and decided to do it with all due formalities. It was the first time I had made any kind of resolve to fast and my first time praying to Shirdi Sai Baba. I did not have one article which was sandalwood paste. Actually, I thought it was the residue left after burning incense sticks and used it in the first few weeks. Then one night, around 2 am when I was revising, I Googled it and found out that it is not actually the same thing. I went to the pooja shop and asked for it. I finally found it and started using it. I did not restart the fast, but I continued it. Nine weeks were soon over. On Thursdays, I used to bring oatmeal in my plastic bottle. Sometimes it was not enough so I would buy sweets in the canteen. Sometimes I unknowingly ate rasgullas made with eggs as well. The Vrat was over, and the last Thursday, I saved my pocket money and donated seven Sai Baba Vrat books that cost me around Rs. 135.
However, the exams were still far away. The last year of college came, and it was the exam year as well (we normally have 2 years to prepare in Mauritius). At the beginning of the year, I went to English tuition, and I felt very nice. The teacher accepted me, which is usually not the case if you did not start tuition the previous year. I worked on past papers and did additional essays by myself, giving them to my tuition and college teachers to correct. I worked on other subjects as well and did a lot of practice. I did all the exercises in the school books and the past papers. I was organized. I set deadlines and worked backward from that date, and if they could not be followed, I was flexible to change the dates but kept in mind to finish all my revision at least two months before the final HSC exams in November.
During the year, I was also offered free tuition by school teachers at their house because they were worried about me. They said I worked really well, and I should come to tuition. Some also reduced their prices for me. I am very grateful.
The exams came, and I made sure I went to bed at around 11:00 pm every day and organized my timetable in order of dates because the timetables were a bit disordered. My teacher said to all students to communicate with each other because when students do not communicate, that is when they forget they have exams (numbers had to be put in the timetable to organize it).
The exams were finally over, and I eagerly waited for the results. I went to the local library to check online. I also used to go to the local library for a full day to study because I could not concentrate at home, and I needed a change of environment. There was free Wi-Fi, which was very helpful. At school, I used to stay till late after all the students had gone home to check on scholarships and do research work.
To my surprise, I passed with an A grade in General Paper and did brilliantly in all subjects as well. I remembered the vrat and was extremely thankful to Sai Baba. I immediately called my parents, and they were both overjoyed.
It’s been quite a few years now, and I never shared this experience. A few days ago, I had a dream in which I was requested to share my experience. It would help people.
My HSC results have helped me all these years. I was among the top shortlisted candidates in many big organizations. People say that HSC results don’t count, but they are the first things employers look at. I finished university with a first-class degree and received two scholarships locally. Experience also matters a lot. No experience equals no work. Once, while doing an HR job, I dismissed those with bad college results and those who complained about their work experience. You always learn things, so don’t complain.
A few weeks ago, Sathya Sai appeared in my dream, and I expressed my desire to study abroad for a master’s degree (I don’t have the finances, but many scholarships are available). Sathya Sai just told me, “LONDON,” and then he walked away.
I want to say that hard work is necessary. It’s okay to go through tough times, no matter what your age is, but do not be angry with God. Sometimes, people think that praying to God means that we have troubles, and because God has put trouble in our lives, we have to pray to him to please him. But that’s not true. Our problems come from ourselves and others, and praying to God just makes sure that things move smoothly and in our favor.
I am starting a government job soon on a contract after my previous nightmare experience that I shared earlier. Sai Baba said I will get a good experience, and I am grateful for that. Thank you for reading, and I hope you found this article inspiring.
Sai Baba’s Miracles – A Devotee’s Personal Account
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Baba devotee from India says: My salutations to Sai Baba, the Supreme, Infinite, and ever-loving God who looks after all our needs like a loving mother.
I would like to express my gratitude to Hetal ji and her team for documenting numerous Sai experiences from 2008 until now, providing us devotees with a vast library of Sai experiences that strengthen our faith.
Baba has transformed my life in just a few years. I used to have a job and live a carefree life, enjoying myself with friends and not caring about anything or anyone in my life. Suddenly, I lost my job, and my “friends” left me. I didn’t even have enough money to buy one meal a day and prayed to God to let someone give me food to eat.
Days passed by like this until one day, I happened to visit Sri Shirdi Sai Baba temple near my home. On that day, I had the blessed opportunity to give mangal snan (bath) to Baba’s murti. I don’t know why, but I cried a lot that day thinking about my life and what had become of it. I believe Baba heard my cries for help, and from that day onwards, all my problems started to get solved one by one. People unexpectedly brought me food, and I didn’t have to starve again ever.
It has been a few years since I left my job, returned home, and have been content with whatever Baba has been providing me. Baba has changed me as a person, and I have become more calm and tolerant towards others. I try my best to help people who are in misery by following Baba’s path, telling them about the miracles of Sri Sai Satcharitra and reading it.
My humble request to fellow devotees is:
- Please do not insult or demean people just because they belong to different religions, castes, etc. Baba said in the Satcharitra: “Rama (the God of the Hindus) and Rahim (the God of the Mohammedans) were one and the same; there was not the slightest difference between them; then why should their devotees quarrel among themselves?”
- Please feed animals and poor people whenever possible.
- Keep reading the Sri Sai Satcharitra every day, and miracles will surely happen.
- Join the Global Mahaparayan and read two chapters in Sri Sai Satcharitra every Thursday, and Baba will shower your life with miracles.
- Whenever you visit a temple, orphanage, or old age home, please try to do some seva in those places. Baba will surely be pleased with you.
- Please do not gossip about anyone with anyone. Baba does not like talking behind someone’s back. If anyone says hurtful things to you, please do not say hurtful things back. Let us be silent. It’s better to be silent and chant Baba’s name every second of our life than indulge in such things.
Baba says, “What man gives is always imperfect, but what my sircar gives lasts long. Everyone says Give, Give, but my sircar says Take, Take.”
Bolo Bhagvan Sri Sainath Maharaj ki jai. Keep chanting Baba’s name and his stories, and everyone will attain the unattainable.

Sai Baba’s Guidance And Protection During Difficult Times
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Baba devotee from USA says: I want to share how Sai Baba has helped me during difficult periods in my life. Without his guidance, it would have been impossible for me to overcome these challenges. I promised Sai that I would share my experiences here if he fulfilled my wishes.
- Firstly, my son underwent surgery a few months ago, and Sai’s blessings made all follow-up tests come back to normal. He has been able to eat well and his bowel movements have become regular. Even when he experienced poop urgency for two days, Sai solved the problem for us. Thanks to Sai, my son has gained weight and height.
- Secondly, we planned a trip to visit my brother, but one day before our travel, my son fell and injured his arm at school. By Sai’s grace, we were still able to travel without any problems. Sai protected us from coughs and colds during the journey, and my son’s arm also healed in time for him to enjoy his stay.
- Sai has also cured my son’s hiccups and dry hands,
- I am grateful to him for curing my eye pain and my husband’s stomach pain.
- Lastly, when one of my colleagues contracted COVID-19, I prayed to Sai to protect me from exposure. He made my dream come true by preventing any COVID-19 exposure and also solving other problems.
I am thankful to Sai Baba from the bottom of my heart for guiding and protecting us all the time. Om Sai Rakshaka Sharanam Deva.
A Devotee’s Request For Sai Baba’s Blessings During Times Of Stress And Hardship
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Baba devotee from Canada says: I am a married woman living in Canada and would prefer to remain anonymous. I am extremely thankful to Hetal ji and the other administrators for maintaining this site.
For the last two years, I have been going through a very stressful situation, and Baba has been my constant support throughout. Recently, my mother fell ill and needed a blood transfusion while she was in the ICU. I was very worried, so I contacted my mahaparayana group leader, who was very kind and prayed for me. At the same time, I received news that my daughter’s blood test results were slightly off the limit, and I was crying all day, praying to Sai. However, Baba reassured me that everything would be okay for my daughter.
Regarding my mother, she has been diagnosed with a serious health condition, and she will need regular follow-ups to prevent further progress and complications. Baba, she is only 63 years old. Please protect her and prevent any further damage or complications. Please bless my children, my husband, and myself, and protect us from all harm.
As my daughter is starting university, I pray that you give her good health and the strength to face any challenges that may come her way. I am broken by all the stress of worrying about my family’s health. Baba, I pray that you be with me, my husband, my children, my mother, and my aunt.
Lastly, Baba, I have lost something that is important to me. Kindly help me find it.
How Sai Baba’s Blessings Helped A Family Overcome Their Fear Of Stomach Cancer
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Baba devotee from India says: Firstly, I would like to apologize to Sai Baba for the delay in fulfilling my vow to share this experience. I got occupied with my work and forgot about it. Please forgive me, Baba, for the late post.
Now, let me share my experience. In July 2022, my younger sister fell ill, and the doctor advised us to undergo a plethora of tests. We were fine with the other tests, but there was one test for stomach cancer that scared us. We got all the tests done and were deeply tense until the reports came. We kept praying to Baba for normal reports. As we all know, Baba is everyone’s savior, and he kept assuring us through his messages not to worry and that everything would be fine. Then he also showed us the message, “Why fear when I am here,” which gave us a huge relief.
However, we were still somewhat tensed and continued to pray to Baba. Finally, the day arrived when we received the reports, and with Baba’s blessings, the reports were completely normal. All thanks to Sai Baba!! I just love him!!
Koti Koti pranam to Baba🙏🏻🙏🏻
I would like to express my gratitude to Hetal ji for providing this platform. Love and gratitude to your entire team..🙏🏻🙏🏻
