Happy Thursday and Happy Baba's day,
The one who has put his faith and trust into the hands of this great and divine Shirdi Sai, who asked nothing of his devotees but patience, faith and love, will know just how true these words are.
Below is the experience shared by Sai devotee who wishes to remain annonymous.
Jai Sai Ram .
Dear sai devotees,
I have accumulated so many incidents before writing this article. Earlier I have posted few miracles done by my Sai. But so many days passed and my important prayers are answered in these 3 years and Sai gave me a life which I am living.
I was in love for more than 7 years and faced all sorts of problems with marriage. I stayed unmarried till I am 32 years. I was not working, but a doctor sitting in home with no hopes. Just to look at Sai was the full day's work for me waiting for some good to happen. I waited for 3 years in native, not meeting with my man. I fell like everything is falling apart. I was not allowed to go to a job. I had only one option, to study for my entrance exams to post graduation.
Baba gave me only one work and asked me to concentrate. How could I? I j wasust was sitting with books and tears. I wasted one year and did not study. Again I worked knowing that He will not leave me. I got PG seat in a reputed institution. It came as a shock to the people who tried to trap me in home and break my commitment. It is a seat which no one can deny because of the competitition.
My parents supported for my further studies and I joined college after 3 years of struggle. I knew the college where I was going to study before even I attended counselling. When I was on the way to counselling I saw a van in which part of the name of the college was written with a smiling sai baba photo near it. When I attended counselling I was searching for the same college, but to my surprise, it was not in the list. There were no seats submitted by the college to government.
I returned home with empty hands. The only odd thing that happened was the counselling was cancelled that day because of less number of seats submitted. There was a strike by students and nobody attended counselling. Is it not a miracle.2nd counselling was over and the same college came to counselling with just 3 seats, all in a different cateogory which i was not eligible as it was for government service. It remained. And the 3 rd counselling came and still the seats remained without filling. Yet I was not eligible.
Suddenly one day a call came and my friend called me for counselling which was held to fill the remaining seats. Do I want to say that there was only one seat remaining in the very same college that my Sai told. I got the seat and it was a private college.
The next problem was fees, which i could never afford at the point. Suddenly my dad sold the jewels kept for my marriage. I joined the college. And the 3 years was the next punishment I was about to get after my 3 years in home. The most toughest period with all sorts of problems and embarassment.
By this time my marriage was settled all of a sudden when I was in second year. I had only 30 days leave for the whole 3 years. I took 10 days leave and it was a miracle that everything fell into place suddenly. His very stubborn father gave him way and asked him to marry me. He stayed out of the marriage. His father had told him earlier that he will be sent out of house if he is marrying me. But he was not willing to leave his home or father's because he is the only son and also his mom had departed in his childhood. They were doing buisness together too.
Suddenly his father talked to him about the issue and asked to marry but said he will not interfere in any issues. He asked him to continue business with him. In a wink of an eye I got married. After 8 years struggle I still wonder how can such things happen. I got married. Returned to my routine in 5 days. But the 6 th day of my marriage the biggest blow came.
I was diagnosed with Tuberculosis. I was shattered. I had blood in vomit. Who else I can turn to. I thought my hard won marriage is finished. My Sai said "No, I gave you this not to take it away. What I give you is permanent ". I told my husband about the disease. He was the most considerate, caring and understanding husband. He is Sai himself. He gave me confidence. Took me to the doctor who was a friend of my brother.
The doctor wiped my anxiety just like that. He said it is just another disease. I took medicines for a year. No medicine was accepted by my body. I experienced all the side effects of antibiotics. The minute I swallow 4 tablets, I used to get diarrhoea, unknowingly. I got 6 times diarrhoea continuosly without knowing. I went to Baba. Saw him with tears. I said I cannot take this and just put Udi in water and drank and came and sat.
From that point all the tablets was accepted by my body. I took continuously for a year and finished my course. I was freed from disease. Is it because of medicines??
The next blow came with my thesis and exams. My life was taken out for thesis. I was told I cannot attend exams as I was lacking in attendence due to my medical leave. I talked to everyone. No one budged. All odds were against me. I cried. People suggested persons to meet. I ignored. Said to Sai, I will write if you let me. If not I will stay. You decide if I am eligible to write or not. I just started to carry on with my daily work. Everyone asked my status in exams. I said I don't know, because I did not know. I left it.
Exams came and my hall ticket too came. Someone from the office has helped me get through. I gave my exams and did my worst in practicals and main paper. But I worked non stop. Because I knew Sai will not allow laziness. So I have to do my work whatever comes. I did. Everything was over and I passed in Ist class, which can happen only in a dream.
I am now at the feet of my sadguru. What can I ask to him. He gave more that what I wanted. With a husband full of love and a life to live with good health. I am looking for a baby which I am sure my Sai will give. I know it is a long post, but I wrote everything just to say only Saibaba can fill your eyes and heart with happiness.
Whatever comes spread your hands in front of him, He will not send you empty handed. I wanted to write this post for long but did not find time. Now on a Thursday I felt Sai told me to write everything and I wrote.
This may be for someone who is dejected with problems in life, just the way of Sai to direct them in the way of faith. I know there may be tough situations yet to come in life, but is there not Sai to lean on. Hold on to him. Om sai ram.
