We shall be reading few more experiences of devotees in today's
Divine Experience during Shirdi Visit
Sai Brother Nimit Ji from India says: Om Sai Ram Hetal Ji, We want to share this
amazing experience of Baba's Darshan that we experienced while on our visit to
Shirdi. We belong to Jaipur and visit Baba's temple regularly. During the
winters of 2010, during our visit to the temple we decided that we would present
a blanket for Baba's Murti in the temple. Somehow, this slipped out of our minds
and we totally forgot about it.
During our visit to Shirdi in December 2011, after the Darshan at the Samadhi
Mandir, we were going to visit Lakshmi Bai's house in the Chavadi Mandir area.
There we saw a fakir who had a God like glow on his face. He was wearing the
same dress as our dear Babaji used to wear. My wife said we must give Dakshina
and I offered 50 Rs. to him. I turned back and started walking towards Lakshmi
Bai's house, and then I felt someone had called me. I looked back and the
saintly fakir was looking at me and motioned me to come back. I went back to him
and then what he said made me feel the miracles of Baba Ji that we have so often
heard. He said "Mujhey Ek Kambal khareed ke do" (Buy me a blanket). The
expression that he had on his face, when he said this to me, was so calm,
composed and saintly. I did not know how to react to the situation and just told
him "Babaji aap in rupiyon se Kambal khareed lijiyega" (Buy blanket by this
money) and continued to Lakshmi Bai's house. When on our way back from Shirdi,
my wife and I discussed this whole incident and then we realized that we had
promised to gift a blanket for Babaji's Murti in the temple in Jaipur. It was
Babaji, who made us remember in Shirdi, what we had thought of in Jaipur. It was
truly the most amazing incident of our lives and even today as I am writing this
experience I have tears in my eyes. We love You, Babaji. You are the world to us
and we pray You always to be with us and bless us.
Baba's Samadhi appeared me as Lord Vishnu
Sai Brother Siva Ji from USA says: Dear Hetal Ji, I am Siva, a small devotee of
Baba. I would like to thank you for creating and maintaining such a great blog.
May BABA bless you and your family with health, wealth and happiness. Below is a
small experience of me with our beloved Baba. Kindly post it at your
convenience. Please don't disclose my email address.
First of all, I pray BABA for His blessings on everyone. I had many beautiful
experiences in my last visit to India. As the experiences are very long, I am
writing very few experiences here. Please forgive me if you find any mistakes in
I am a devotee of Sainath Maharaj since several years. But I became close to Him
from last two years, especially after reading “Shri Sai Satcharitra”. After
coming to US, I was not happy because of some personal reasons. So I found
solace in praying BABA. I started reading “Sai Satcharitra”. This helped me a
lot in realizing how He helps His devotees. I became close to Him. I started
feeling to go to Shirdi. In fact, I visited Shirdi many a times before, while I
was working in PUNE. But I never touched His Samadhi, as Samadhi gates were
closed every time. I visited Shirdi on week-ends. I asked Him for a chance to
visit Shirdi again. One day, while reading devotees experiences, I realized BABA
fulfills our wish sooner, if we offer one of our favorite food/drink to Him till
our wish is fulfilled. I drink coffee very frequently and I decided to stop
drinking coffee until I visit Shirdi. Somehow, my trip to India got confirmed by
I went to Shirdi with my parents in the month of May-June. We reached Shirdi
safely. We visited Samadhi Mandir and Dwarakamai. We had Darshan of our Lord. I
planned to stay in Shirdi during weekdays, so that I could touch Baba’s Samadhi.
But, as it was vacation time, there was huge crowd in Shirdi. The gates were
closed every time, when we visited Mandir. I was disappointed and tried to
attend the Aarti, so that I would get a chance to touch His feet. I attended
Shej Aarti two times. Both times, I could not make it to stand inside the Mandir.
One time, I had Darshan just before the Shej Aarti and gates were closed that
time. Immediately, I rushed into the queue for Shej Aarti. I saw on TV that
people, who were behind me earlier, were able to touch the Samadhi. I felt so
bad and cried internally. I realized my bad karma was so bad and my Bhakti
(devotion) was not good enough to touch His feet. I somehow consoled myself
saying “The time has not come yet”. But there were some incidents during this
journey like Baba’s appearance in Kopergaon and His appearance as Dog in Samadhi
Mandir gave me some happiness and faith. I would like to write those experiences
later, when Baba permits.
I came back to USA in July. I used to pray Him sincerely, but many doubts came
into my mind like, could I make it to touch His Samadhi in this birth. Because,
it's an accumulated good karma of many previous births, which led me to become
His devotee. So, there is no big surprise, if one couldn't touch His feet. But
after few weeks, one day morning, I had a dream like this. It was Wednesday
morning in Shirdi. I visited Samadhi Mandir and there was very little rush in
the temple. I stood near the Samadhi and I touched the entire Samadhi. I touched
His feet too. I saw four projections on the four corners of the Baba's Samadhi.
One Purohit was explaining me the four projections as Shankha, Chakra, Gadha and
Padma. We see those holding by Lord Vishnu. I could remember the Shankha and
Chakra on top two projections. Immediately my dream was broken. I felt very
happy and felt like my bad karma, which was refraining me to touch His Samadhi
was over. From Sai Satcharitra and devotees experiences, I came to know,
irrespective of time and day, any dream related to Him is as real as His
presence. Hence, I hope with full faith, when I get His next call to Shirdi, He
will allow me to touch His feet.
Om Sai Rama
Sai Sister Llam Ji from India says: Thank you for providing a platform to share
I was asked to make a passport by my sister. Though my husband loves me, but he
never wants me to do things like this on my own. He becomes my biggest obstacle.
I was given all reasons as to why my passport would not be done. Some were true.
I did not have marks card for age proof. I did not have any age proof at all. I
had given my marks card in one of the firms, I had worked for. I did not have a
proof of submission. The firm had shifted to a new place. I did not know address
of new place. All of this happened 3 or 4 years back. So, getting my marks card
was considered impossible.
One day, I was very upset. I just walked out of the house. I saw a rickshaw come
to me. The man was wearing orange cloth below and had an upper cloth. I gave him
the name of my firm and told him to take me there. I cannot describe the ride.
For some reason, I could not take my eyes off him. His back was glistening with
sweat. What I remember the most was his hands and feet, they were huge. He kept
talking to himself and making some gestures to the people on the way, specially
a tea seller. At that time I kept wondering if it was my Sai, but I was too
scared to accept it. He took me to the firm correctly. I got down and paid him
more than I was supposed to. In my heart, I asked him to pray to help me get my
marks card. I did not want to turn back and see him. I wanted it to be my Sai. I
entered the firm, asked for my marks card. They had saved all the marks cards in
a folder. It took them maybe half an hour to locate mine and give me.
This is one of times, when He came to me. He is always there protecting and
taking care of me and my family. He is like a mother, father, God, child to me.
I love You Sai, please be with me forever.
