Sairam dear readers ,
I am a firm believer of the healing power of the spirit ,or the self.We are ultimately made of divine stuff,whole ,perfect and complete .Our faulty conditioning obscures this knowledge and keeps us locked in dysfunctional patterns that manifest as disease and pain .But the core within us is untouched by all this and when we can come in touch with our inner-self ,and allow its effulgence to permeate us,we will once again regain our whole and perfect self which also includes perfect health and the easiest way of building your bond with your soul is through service ...
Sai always said that the highest prayer in this world is service ;the greatest devotion is loving the people around us and the noblest character is divine compassion for all living creatures ...
Today I am posting a Sai sisters experience which offers convincing evidence that when we work on our spiritual issues the result is always stunning .Thanks sister for sharing such a beautiful experience with all Sai devotees and also thanks for loving and respecting me so much .We all wish you a very happy and blessed married life .
Sairam Priyanka Ji.
I would like to thank you for your website that helps us to share our experiences and draw inspiration by
reading the experiences of other devotees. I sincerely pray to Baba to shower His choicest blessings on you
and your family. I would like to share Baba’s Leela in my life. Request you to please publish it after the
necessary changes if required. Please do not publish my name and email-id. Thanks to Sai, as it is only
because of his grace that I am able to jot down my experience . May Deva forgive me for any mistakes.
Baba came into my life at a very critical juncture , around 7 months back, when my relationship was going
through a turmoil and was almost broken. My boyfriend of 5 years refused to marry me as he felt that we
were very different and we may not be happy together after marriage.
There used to be constant fights between us often and I used to pester him to quit certain bad habits. This I realized later. I could feel that many of the fights were for small reasons and I used to drag it for a long time and sometimes for days.
I must agree that we were deeply in love with each other in our happy days and he had taken all pains to
convince his family for accepting me. But, inspite of all my efforts to convince him saying I would not
fight again, all communication between us stopped and I believed that it was the end to our relationship.
I put in lots of efforts to make him understand and make him realize both of our mistakes but no positive
During this period, Baba embraced me, and took me into his fold. Though I was aware of Sai from the last
one year, I was ignorant of his Leelas and miracles. One day I just started to search the internet about Baba
and came across this website and it became a habit to read the experiences of Devotees daily.
It used to boost my faith and patience and fill me with courage. The experiences strengthened my faith and
confidence in Baba. All the while I used to constantly pray Baba to bring my boyfriend back in my life.
Though Baba told me through question and answers to surrender to him, I could never do that and I used to
beg Sai to get me married to my boyfriend only.
In this helpless situation Priyanka Ji provided me a lot of support and she used to comfort me with her words and that also boosted my faith, confidence and patience to a great extent. I take this opportunity to say a special thanks to Priyanka Ji for being there for me during my bad phase. I can never repay her debt. Time rolled on and there was no hopes of his coming back intomy life. But I would like to mention here that, I used to get positive signals in between.
It was only on Thursdays that he would either call / meet or message me, which was hardly 3-4 times in a span of 5 -6 months, and was purely out of his concern for me, though during those meetings he used to be very quiet and never spoke of coming back into my life. In the Sai Temple that I visit in BTM, Bangalore, Panditji once asked me to decorate Baba’s paduka and I felt blessed. My prayers to Baba for positive signs were always heard by Baba and Sai used to reciprocate back by giving me his photo, Prasad, flower, religious books, messages, playing my favorite bhajans , appearing in my dream etc.
My mother too started Sai Nav Guruvar Vrat as she was anxious about my marriage. These positive signs used to boost me and pull me back each time I felt I had lost my meaning in life. I was still not hearing anything good from my boyfriend and out of anxiety my Mom picked up chits before Baba asking him if I would get married to my boyfriend and the answer was ‘No’. I was completely broken and cried a lot. It was only after this negative answer from Baba that, I really surrendered to Sai and sought refuge at his holy feet and just prayed to him to get me married to the right guy of his choice.
My prayers were never biased after that. My Mom started looking for proposals and I got an unusual peace of mind. Baba used to answer positively all the time I used to question him in the ‘Question and Answers’ website. There is a ‘Sai Koti Stupa’ in the BTM Sai Baba Temple in Bangalore, and if we daily do 11 rounds of the stupa for 48 days, our wish would get fulfilled. Crores of Sai names in written form are put inside the stupa.A ‘Stupa’ is a monumental pile of earth or other material, marking a sacred spot. I got to know this after some time and I started doing the sacred 11 rounds of the Stupa, humbly praying him to get me married to a good guy.Baba called me to Shirdi and I had blissful darshan.
In January 2012 , at the start of the new year, to my great surprise, my boyfriend called me and apologized.
He started calling me frequently and confessed all his guilt. By Baba’s grace he could realize that both of
us were responsible for the fights we used to have, but instead of solving them and respecting the love we
had for each other, he broke our relationship.
He confessed that he regrets whatever had happened and would respect my wish, and he left it to me to decide if I wanted him back in my life. I was in a dilemma.In my heart I prayed to Baba to please help, guide and advice me. It was nice to see him accept and realize his mistake and I was grateful to Baba. He wanted us to meet and we met in Baba’s temple for the first time after this long gap. I was praying to Baba to show me some positive signal if he accepts our relationship.
We spoke for a long time and he addressed all my worries. In his voice I could feel the old love and care
back, and he said that he was scared about our long fights and my nagging nature. I was still apprehensive
of my decision. The next day, I was delighted to see my Shirdi Trip Experience posted in blog
(where I prayed to Baba to help me get married to the right guy), and it was posted on the day we met for
the first time after a gap of 6 months. I was praying to Baba for a positive signal and here it was !
My experience and prayer was posted on the same day I met my boyfriend after 6 months! I took that as
Things are much better between us now, all Thanks to Baba, and this problem between us has brought us
even closer. He has improved a lot by being patient and caring, and I have come to know of my mistakes
of pressurizing and nagging him.
Whenever I face some issue and want some changes in my boyfriend,I just silently pray to Baba and believe me, Baba is working on my boyfriend and he will get rid of his problem areas. Baba has made me learn to take the right path in life and I seek his feet all the while,praying him to bless us ever and take care of all areas of our life.
We are back together and this was only possible due to Sai’s grace and I cannot thank him enough for that. I will be ever grateful to Baba for all his love and nice and wonderful Leela. Without this issue in our personal lives, I would not have come to know about Baba at all !! I am just trying to be a good human being as Baba expects us all to be. Talks have started in our families for our marriage and I pray to Baba to carry out everything smoothly and bless
us with a blissful married life.
My humble salutations and Pranam at your lotus feet Sainath. Nothing is impossible for you and you
alone know when and how to bless all your children ! You are my father and I know you are there to care
for us ever.
May your blessings reach each one of us and make our lives better. Many thanks to you.
