All of us are limited creatures and cannot be omnipresent,but we have to understand one thing that Baba is present everywhere -in every plant ,animal ,and human beings .I can serve Baba anywhere as every name and form is nothing but His moving temple-a touch of life,keeping this in mind we should serve everybody without consideration of caste,creed,colour,belief or behaviour ,whether he is a cruel monster or a divine individual ,we have to remember that we are serving none other than Sai.
So when we surrender our stupid egos,our vulgar selfishness and start using all our faculties for the service of others ,we know that He is the one who receives through all these names and forms.
We can never be Baba's 'devotee' if we go on pilgrimages every year and gives money and gold to the temple.This is not devotion ,I feel that devotion means devotion to Sai at every moment ,this kind of devotion is now sadly lost in the world.
Today a very beautiful Sai leela I want to share with all of you which shows that if we have true devotion and pure heart then we will be happy in life .Today's experience is about a girl from Delhi called Swati Bakshi.Swati had sent me a mail long time back may be 3 months back and she was very depressed with her life as her fiance had cheated her .I remember that I gave her my phone number as I could sense the seriousness of the matter.I never received any calls from her for two days and then on the third day she called me at 1.40 am ,I generally keep my phone on silent mode after 7.00 pm as my daughter goes off to sleep and I don't want to disturb her,but luckily that day I forgot to change the mode of my cellphone .
Swati was sounding extremely sad and was crying while speaking to me ,I cant tell in detail as what she told me but she was cheated very badly by her fiance ,they were about to get married after 2 week when all this happened .Swati said priyanka didi I was very disturbed with this and was sitting on net and came across your website ,then I saw your mail id thought to mail you as I had no one with whom I can talk my heart out ,she was asking my help in this matter .
It was a very tricky situation to handle because swati was emotionally very down and could have take any extreme step ,I had no idea about the real story too ,but then I had to resolve this issue because may be Baba chose me to do this .I told Swati that I will call you back tomorrow at 9.00 am till then you relax and just chant sai sai sai .That night was very long as I was thinking for the best solution but was not able to reach any outcome ultimately at 5.30 am I went to my pooja room and sat for a while and requested Baba to give me a solution for helping out Swati ,I took Sai Satcharitra in my hand and started reading it ,while I was doing so I again received Swati's call saying that didi I cant sleep I think I should die now .
I told her Swati ok if you want to die then I will not stop you but I have a solution for you if you try this I am sure your all worries will come to an end ,hearing this she asked me about the solution .To be very honest with you all I never had any solution till then but suddenly Baba's Satcharitra gave me the hope and I told her that you read Sai Satcharitra for one week and then see your life will be filled with happiness.Swati was not very pleased with my solution because she said that I am not a Sai devotee and believe in mata ,but due to my strong recommendations she stared reading Sai Satcharitra (I had sent one for her ).
For almost 10 days I never received any calls or mails from Swati the one day I received a marriage card ,when I opened it my joy knew no bounds because it was swati who was getting married to a person who is a software engineer in Canada .I immediately called Swati to know how it all happened ?Swati was sounding very happy ,she said priyanka didi I can never thank you enough for introducing me to Sai and for sending me Sai Satcharitra ,I am being blessed within 4 days of my Sai devotion,swati was on 69 th page when she thought to buy some mishri and dhoop ,she went to the mall and there she mat this guy and it was love at first site from both the sides ,they had a little chat there and exchanged their phone numbers and same day in the evening that guy along with his father came to Swati's house and showed his interest in getting married to Swati,her whole family was shocked because the guy belongs to a very rich family from Canada where as Swati belongs to a poor family.
Swati is now in Canada with her husband and very happy with life in fact with the same life which she wanted to end up one day .you will be happy to know that now Swati and her whole family now follow only Shirdi Sai Baba,she told me that many times she see Baba in her dreams.I am really happy for Swati because Baba gave her what she deserved and I am also thankful to Baba for being the guiding star in solving out her problem .
This leela tells us about the power Sai bhakti holds in transforming our lives overnight ,all we need is faith and Patience .we must surrender ourselves to Baba as we do not know what is good or bad for us ,but whatever Baba do is alwats for the our best .Thanks to Swati for permitting me to publish this post ,I am sure many of us specially young readers will be benefited after reading this Sai leela.
Never loose hope ,just believe in Baba and then see your future ,it will be beyond your imaginations .
Be good !
