Asking from Him - His grace and miracles


Aum Sai Ram,

Sai Baba's grace is well known for fulfillment of the wishes of His devotees. While Sai Baba sported in physical body in the sacred land Shirdi, miracles where everyday happening in Shirdi and with His devotees, at far away distances from Shirdi. Devotees felt and knew that Sai Baba's grace was following them wherever they went, and knew whatever they did. It is so even today.

Initial attraction for most people and devotees towards Shirdi and Sai Baba was due to this miracles, as it is today. Stories were herd that in presence of Shri Sai Baba, a Fakir in Shirdi people would get free from all sort of problems like mental anguish, physical ailments and long stubborn sickness which refused to leave in spite of much medication and other efforts. This things happened on daily basis with many devotees. People anxious to get rid of their mental, physical and social problems would visit Shirdi and get rid of them adding to more stories of the power and compassion of Sai Baba's grace.

There were very few seekers of spirituality or God who were attracted to Shri Sai Baba, or perhaps those stories are few on records for devotees to read. Many devotees who got rid of their problems again and again with Baba's grace were slowly diverted to spirituality and love for God.

About the grace so powerful, always anxious and following the devotees, protecting them and guiding them and leading them to the comfort of spiritual peace, silence and compassion.

Giving so many things to the devotees. There is a line in the famous Arati of Shri Sai Baba called Aarti Sai Baba writen by Madhav rao aadkar.

Jaya mani jaisa bhava. Tayataisa anubhava

जया मनी जैसा भाव | तयातैसा अनुभव |


meaning whatever feelings or bhaava one has, Sai Baba gives one the same.

Whatever one wishes one would get. (Though not in all cases. Sai Baba also acts as a loving mother and would not give something if it was harmful for the devotee's spiritual progress.) Such powerful grace pulling hundreds and thousands of devotees to Shirdi and other temples. Making devotees chant his mantras, perform Aartis and other form of devotion. Most devotees still do it for the purpose one or the other.


I remember a parable told by Shri Ramakrishna Paramhamsha in the holy and sacred book Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna.

There was a tub filled with a dye. People would get their clothes dyed in the color they desired (Jaisa mani Jaisa bhaav taya taisaa anubhava). Somebody would desire the cloth he brought to be dyed in blue color and would leave happily with a blue colored cloth. Some one with green, yellow and so on. some would even make a habit of coming again and again with the cloth for different colors at different times.

One man watching all this asked for the dye.

Om Sai Ram Srividya,

i do not know how you asked the question and how you received the answer.

Best way to get an answer is reading Shri Sai SatCharitra.

People fear can be handled by seeing a doctor or thru meditation and prayer regularly. The best way to overcome it is to go out and talk to people as regularly as possible. Stop thinking about what they are thinking about you. Try not to care too much about opinion. I say all this because I suffer from the same and I am being treated for it by a doctor. But his advise to me is that I should calm down and pray and meditate all the time.

Read about Saibaba. There are so many hundreds of books on him. Chant his name all the time. Carry him in your pocket. Love him and keep talkng to him. He is wonderful.

He responds to me all the time. He doesnt give me all I want, but he never fails to respond when I ask for help, even in little issues everyday. He is a very kind father. And the truth is He is God.

Con infinito amor y agradecimiento por conocerte.
