Om Sri Sai Nathay Namah
JAI SAI RAM
Shirdi Sai Baba came into my life in 2005. Although i knew about him a few years before but getting to understand him only came in 2005. It was the same year my mother-in-law was visiting us from india, and we went to his temple together. Although i had no intention of opening my heart to him but as soon as i saw him i bursted out crying (One of the 8 types of spiritual ecstasies).
I had been trying for a child for quite sometime now without any success. I had a miscarriage in 2003 and was unable to conceive after that. As soon as i saw baba's idol, tears rolled down and i heard a very clear voice telling me "Ï HAVE COME HERE FOR YOU". I kept crying while the shej aarti (Shirdi Sai Baba Aartis) was being played, and felt really light after that. I came home and started praying to baba to bless me with a child. 3 years passed and i became pregnant in 2008. Me and my husband were over the moon. Everything was going fine until 21 weeks, when things started looking bad. I lost my pregnancy. I was totally devastated and couldn't stop asking baba "WHY DID U DO THIS?????"
Baba told me through a fellow devotee that this was meant to happen and soon i will be blessed with a beautiful son.
I again got pregnant in 2010 and a gorgeous little baby boy was born the same year.There are no words which can describe the merciful nature of our BABA. He proved to me that certain things are pre-destined and cannot be changed but he will hold us and take us safely across this samsara. Baba is everything for me, my friend, my brother, my advisor in fact MY LIFE.
I thank baba from the bottom of my heart for being in my life and making it so meaningful. Beyond this samsara is a beautiful beautiful almighty waiting for us with his stretched hands to embrace us and we only need those eyes to see and touch to feel it. Baba bless all your children with whatever is good for them and grant us wisdom to lead this life on your principles. Love you now and ALWAYS.
