How Faith in Sai worked


One day, my brother called from Kolhapur to inform me about our mother’s hospitalisation.  I was grief -stricken.  When I reached Kolhapur, she was in the ICU in a semi-comatose state. She was not able to recognise anyone.  Sometimes she opened her eyes, smiled, and went back to sleep.  Her condition made me cry.

I had taken Baba’s Udi and Prasad with me. When I could not bear to see her suffering so, I prayed to Baba, “My mother never hurt anybody or behaved unpleasantly. Why is she in such a bad shape ?

I beseech You to make her feel better so that she can recognise her children once again. Let her die when she can walk and talk again, but not in this awful state.”

When my mother became conscious for a while, I told her I was applying Sai’s Udi to her and gave her the Prasad. Surprisingly, she immediately closed her eyes and joined her palms in prayer, muttering something. She ate some of the castor sugar of the Prasad and asked me to leave some for her. When I gave it to her, she put it under her pillow.

Soon my other sisters arrived. I had to return to Pune that night. Early in the morning my sister called to say that my mother’s condition had improved and that she was talking to every one. She also inquired as to why I had not come. I spoke to her on the phone and told her about thePrasad under her pillow and that I had to return to work. She understood.

She was discharged after eight days and I thanked Baba a hundred times.

"Baba you are truly great. Your Leelas are unfathomable.’’


A person is re-born in the form, which he is contemplating at the time of death. The one who is humble at the feet of God is not re-born.  (Shri Sai Sat Charita, Chapter 31, Verse 7)
