Sai Leela-337 - My Belief & Experience of Baba


Hi, I am from USA. Like everyone, I do have many of experiences of Sri Sadguru Shirdi Sai Baba. I would like to share few of my experiences with all, so that people who are in some pain can get hope of their life. Hetalji, thanks to you for maintaining such a wonderful blog.

I am know Shirdi Sai Baba ever since of my childhood. I believe in Him, but not a very ardent devotee as like I am now. Even now, I am not a very ardent devotee as I still sometimes lose my patience and I feel that I am not following, Shraddha and Saburi. Since my child hood, I never had any problem and my parents gave me everything I wanted and we lived a happy life with all we had. I am the one who made all the mess in my life with my immature behavior and cause of all my pain. But Baba never let me go down and protected me all the times and made me stand in the best and He taught me to fight and learn to stand for myself.

Coming to my experiences, I had many but I can share the one which have bought a deep change in me. I am working as a software consultant and I used to keep switching the job due to short term contracts with clients. I also had a very painful married life. In one such situation, I went to Baba temple on one Thursday. The time was around 1:30 pm, we have sofas and chairs to sit and pray to Baba in front of His holy idol. I was sitting there and completely lost in thoughts of all the mistakes and the mess I had done in the past and I was begging a pardon of Baba for making all those mess. I was asking for the forgiveness from Baba. After few minutes, one of the old person, called me to come to him. He was wearing white pant and shirt covered with white shawl all his body and having white bag on one of his shoulder. He asked me, what was I thinking about, I had no words to say, so I was calm and he told, "insaan se kabhi galthiyan hojate hain, bhool ja beta" (Mistakes happen through human beings so forget them beta). Tears started rolling down. He kept on saying "chintan karo beta", I didn't understand the word "chintan" and was thinking about the meaning of it in my inner mind. All of sudden, he asked me that if I knew the meaning of "chintan"? I nodded my head saying no. Then he replied, "smaran karo beta." He told me to come to this temple whenever I feel depressed or sad as he was always there. I touched his holy feet to take a leave and about to stand, he then said, "ek minute" and took some dry fruits from his bag and put it in my hand.

From then I had some of His dreams to guide me and make me strong. I am now totally dependent on Him for everything. I completely believe in Him, that He will be always there with me and He will never let me down. I request all to have patience. He will definitely listen to You. Jai Sairam.
