Saima Fullfills Minutest Of Wishes

Author is PRIYANKA RAUTELA.DHANKAR on Saturday, December 13, 2008
Sairam to all ,
Saima's love is so deep that no one can ever get the real depth of it ,we as humans gets disappointed for small small things in day to day life while we face problems we forget that we are blessed children of saima hence whatever is happening or will happen will be for our good only .
when we surrender our whole selfs at the feet of Baba then why do we worry for worldly things ?
~~~~~~~Here I would like to add some nice lines~~~~~~~
Take away my worldly things,
Take away my life,
There's one thing you can't touch,
My faith in SAI
Baba never leaves his children alone ,like a mother he takes care of our minutest of wishes , we can never payback HIS love but can follow His teachings which will give Him immense happiness .
Today I am publishing a beautiful Sai Leela experienced by Puja and Deepak in Boston on last Thursday where they had gone to attande a conference .
I am attaching Puja Sister's mail for all of you:
I and Deepak were to go in a conference in Boston, MA. from Dec 1-5. Since, there are lot of Sai
mandirs in USA, it occurred to me that may be we have one in Boston area and we can have BABAs darshan on Thursday (Dec 4). I checked for the same on the website on Sai Baba temples around the world provided by One of the Sai devotee but did not get any result then I cross-checked on google and found the address of a SAI temple run by New England Shirdi Sai Parivaar that is a community of Shirdi Sai Baba devotees serving the Boston area and beyond in the New England region on the east coast of USA.
They have started Shirdi Sai temple in a leased hall at the Sadhu Vaswani Center, Dracut, MA. Since the mandir is run by the devotees so its timings are different from other Sai mandirs. It opens on four days Thu, Fri (7.00 – 9.00 PM) and Sat, Sun (4.00 – 7.00 PM) and Dhoop aarti is sung by all.
When I saw the address I didn’t know how far Dracut would be from place of our stay in Boston and would we be able to manage to reach in the narrow time range. I noted the address and phone number of the temple and left everything to BABA.
Our flight was scheduled for Sat morning. I offered the daily Naivaidaya of milk to BABA and prayed to HIM to bless us with HIS darshan on Thursday. We reached Boston on Saturday night and settled in our rooms.
I always carry a photo of BABA in my purse n since the day I got Sai Satcharita I had decided that I will carry it with me wherever I go as I read one chapter daily preferably in the morning n if not possible then before going to bed. I kept the photo n Satcharita on a cloth in the room, listened to the Dhoop Aarti and again prayed to BABA to grant us HIS darshan in the Mandir.
We went about attending the conference for Mon to Wed and on Wednesday afternoon I called on the temple number to ask how far it is and how we can reach there.
It was picked by a Sai devotee Sandeep I introduced myself and told him where we are staying and asked him if we could make it to Tursday evening Aarti programme from 7.00-9.00 PM and come back also. He told me that he is not sure as it is not very near to the place of our stay.(This is Sai Baba Temple Boston)
Our place was one of the stations on the metro rail line so I asked if the temple could be reached by metro then he said it cannot be reached by local metro but we will have to reach a metro station called North station and then go to the inter-city train station and take a inter-city train to a place called Lowell from where someone has to pick us by car and drive us to the temple.
The whole route would take around one and a half hours. He said that I should have mailed him earlier so that he could have arranged for some volunteer who could pick us from Lowell. I was sad about not mailing to him but he said that he would drop a group mail and let me know if some volunteer turns up.
He took my number and email. I told him if BABA wishes then we would surely have HIS darshan.
I kept the phone but I was a bit sad as deep within I had some negativity that what if nobody turns up, I told everything to Deepak he asked me not to worry BABA will surely call us. We once again prayed to BABA and waited for intimation from Sandeep. Till Thursday morning I did not get any mail or call from HIM , I was loosing hope as I was desperately waiting for it.
Then at around 11.00 AM I got a call from Sandeep that he got a mail from a devotee, Sri Krishna who lives in Lowell and he n his wife Manasa would pick us from the station to take us for BABAs darshan and then escort us back to the station after taking BABAs Prasad as dinner.
I was overwhelmed and thanked BABA for HIS grace and also thanked Sri Krishna for being the medium of our bliss of BABAs darshan.
I checked with Sandeep for the timings of the trains for going as well as returning as I wanted to attend the whole programe till 9.00 PM so I checked to make sure that we get trains to reach back even late night. Sandeep checked everything and told me there is no problem we could be back easily as trains run till midnight.
Our joy knew no bounds and I thanked Sandeep for everything. I called up Sri Krishna and confirmed all the timings with him. In the evening around 4.45 PM we boarded the metro for North station from where we boarded the inter-city train for Lowell at 5.30 PM and reached Lowell at 6.10 PM. Sri Krishna and Manasa picked us and we reached the temple by 6.50 PM.
The preparations of the Puja were going on. We took BABAs darshan, the joy we felt is indescribable, BABA looked so beautiful sitting in the mandir, we thanked HIM again n my eyes were filled with tears on seeing HIM, It was a big moment for us HE had allowed us HIS darshan n set everything for us in place.
Then It suddenly struck me that we did not buy anything for BABA and in our home, every Thursday we offer a new garland of red or yellow flowers to BABA, which Deepak makes as we do not get readymade garlands here.
So, we asked Sri Krishna if we can get some flowers and some sweets to offer BABA. He replied in affirmative and again took us to a store where we bought a bouquet of red roses for BABA and also two packets of Chocolates.
We came back and as we were getting ready with the flowers to offer them to our Sadgurus feet, one of the devotees turned to me and said, “Do you want to make a garland of the roses?”. We were so shocked to hear that as it was completely unexpected it was Sai Leela that BABA blessed us with the continuation of our service to BABA that we do every Thursday.
It may appear small to others but for us it was acceptance of our devotion and of the little sewa that we do for BABA.
Why that devotee asked us I do not know it was all Sai Nath’s grace as He did not want us to miss the offering that we make and with HIS blessing it continued even in Boston. We were ecastatic, we made the garland and offered it to BABA alongwith the chocolates. I am attaching the snaps of BABA in temple with the rose garland. We attended the Aarti in perfect bliss and later I distributed the chocolates to the kids and all others. We had dinner and Sri Krishna dropped us to the station at 9.25 and we took the 9.30 train to North station and then took the metro to our place and reached the hotel safely by 11.00 PM. BABA not only blessed us with His darshan but also accepted our sewa and also made sure that we reached back safely and comfortably. It is amazing how Baba takes care of each devotee and fulfills their wishes.
I bow to my Sadguru and pray to him to bless all and never distance us from HIS Lotus feet. I take this opportunity to again extend my sincere thanks to Sandeep and Sri Krishna & Manasa for their hospitality.
It was a wonderful experience and the joy I experienced is indescribable. I am thankful to you and all other blogs that have enriched our knowledge about our Sadguru and helped us to learn and practice His teachings in our day-to-day life.
Jai Sainath. Sri Sacchhidanand Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai Sairam
Allaha Malik

Jai Sai Ram Puja ji,

I am glad you were able to make it to the temple and had a great darshan of our beloved Sai. Now that I have read your blog and I am always at the temple on Thursday let me share this with you. I don't know why but on that day, every time I looked at the Baba he wanted me to ask you to distribute the choclate prasad with your own hands to the little kids in our temple. That was the only sentence we exchanged during that day, but thanks to the posting and the blog that I could read a lot more from you.

Bow to Sri Sai , Peace be to all.

Regards,
Jay
