Our Wonderful Shirdi Trip During Mahaparayan MahaParayan Experiences With Shirdi Sai Baba | Miracles of MahaParayan | Blessings of Shri Sai Satcharitra |

Anonymous Shirdi Sai Devotee from India says : Sai Ram. My good wishes and prayers for all readers and the admins of this Mahaparayan blog. I am from MP-210 Mahaparayan group. May Baba bless us all with abundance of health and happiness. Let our Devotion and Faith in Baba's Lotus Feet grow manifold. My koti koti Pranaam to Our Guru, Lord Sai Baba, Who is always eager to come to the rescue of His devotees whenever the devotee calls Him with love and faith. Love You, My Sai Maa. Without You and Your Grace, my life would not have been worth living.

As I have shared in my last post, our Shirdi trip materialised as soon as I started AASM and MahaParayan. Prior to the trip, I read in a blog that since green is the colour of healing, the Angel of healing appears in that colour. My son had injured his right eye and his vision was blurred. So I requested Baba that when I see Your Aarti online, I want to see You dressed in green, so that I am assured that You are healing my son.

And the Ever- Merciful Baba came in a green dress for Shej Aarti. Then I also requested Baba that when I visit You in Shirdi, I want to see You in Green and Yellow dress. As I have mentioned in my earlier post, I also got involved in Mahaparayan miraculously, by Baba's Grace. So this time, we reached Mumbai on 29th March, which was a Thursday. We had hoped to reach Baba’s Mandir by 9- 9:30 pm. But due to traffic jam, we reached Shirdi around 12:30 am. So going to the Mandir was ruled out for that day. Though I felt very sad about it, but consoled myself, saying Baba knows what is best for us. So I started my MP journey the same day I started my Shirdi journey. This I think was a wonderful happening.

On 30th March, around 4 am, I woke up to the sound of Kakad Aarti. Every Sai devotee will vouch for it, what a blissful experience it is, to wake up to the songs of Kakad Aarti when you are in Shirdi. Both my husband and son were sleeping, but I had made up my mind that no matter how exhausted I was, I would go to the Mandir. I quickly took bath, wore fresh clothes and literally ran towards the Mandir. I went directly to Dwarkamai where there wasn’t much crowd at that time. I watched the remaining part of the Kakad Aarti there. Then I offered a coconut at Dwarkamai, next to Baba’s large photo. When I came out of the queue, I glanced at the TV screen and was supremely happy to notice that Baba was dressing up in green clothes, the colour of healing. Yes!! that was the reassurance from My Angel, My Baba.

Then I went towards Samadhi Mandir. There I stood in the queue for Teerth(holy water), but was informed that it was already exhausted. But I stood in the queue for sometime and got Halwa Prasad. Then as I was coming back, I saw an elderly gentleman, in white Kurta and white beard, giving away some Teerth to some devotees from a bottle. I requested him and he readily gave me some Teerth. I was elated. So the very first morning, Baba arranged for both Teerth and Prasad for me.

I then went to Chavadi and offered my prayers and also placed the letters that I was carrying from many devotees at Baba's Lotus Feet. After that we all had wonderful Darshan of Baba around 8 am and also witnessed Madhyan Aarti. Getting pass for same day Madhyan Aarti was also surprising, as usually people don’t get it. But somehow, once we requested, the official agreed to give us 3 passes.

In the afternoon, I again went to the Mandir, mainly to do my Parayan. I did the Parayan inside the Samadhi Mandir (Mukh Darshan part). As I was reading Sai Satcharitra, a dog came and slept on my bag. After I finished my reading I gently took away the bag from under its head. I felt this touch of the dog was Baba’s blessing as well. After this I went to Gurusthan. I decided to do 9 perambulations of the Holy Neem tree. I was looking for Neem Leaves. On my second round, a gentleman came out from Samadhi Mandir Darshan line, and on his own accord offered me a Neem Leaf. You can imagine how happy I was! Then I continued my rounds. On my 7th round (not exactly sure), the miracle happened. A small branch of Neem Leaves fell near me. Only I was there and no one was around. Some leaves also fell on my head and inside my bag. Can you imagine how blessed I felt? It was a dream come true moment. Again after this in my next round I found some more leaves. Then I saw two elderly gentlemen looking for neem leaves. So I gave them both neem leaves from my treasure. Thank You is a small word for Your kindness, Baba.

Before going to Shirdi, one night I dreamt of Baba. In that dream, I saw Baba was wearing yellow dress and I was standing in the window (the one through which you can see Sai in the Samadhi Mandir) and praying to Him. So mentally I had thought that I want to see Baba in two colours, Green and Yellow. In Shirdi we had 2 Aarti Darshan and 3 Normal Darshan. And in all the three days (As we stayed for two full days and third day for morning Aarti, where Baba had changed His dress for 9 times) but He had dressed 8 times in Green or Yellow. Such is His kindness that He listens to even small requests of His devotees.

I went many times to Dwarkamai, Chavadi, Mukh Darshan area. Also visited devotees memorial, like Abdul Baba, Baija Maa, Tatya, etc and Khandoba Temple. In all I was feeling very happy and peaceful. Last day, we had Kakad Aarti darshan and then went for breakfast. I was feeling so sad to leave Shirdi. So I again went to the Temple area. There I bought some roses and prayed to Baba to please accept them. So I went to Chavadi and put them at Baba’s Feet. As soon as I did that, a lady came and covered the bottom half of the photo with a piece of cloth (again yellow). And guess what, my flowers were inside at Baba’s Feet.

This was one visit that I could enjoy the Holiness of Shirdi to my heart’s content. But then, can a Sai-devotee have enough of Shirdi, ever? No and never. Everytime I come back with a heavy heart and prayers on my lips that "Baba call me soon again". This time was no exception. Thank you, dear Sai-Sisters and Sai- Brothers for reading such a long post. Om Sai Ram.

Appearance of Baba in dream and visit to Shirdi are equally auspicious. Baba the most loving blessed you with both. Very true “Shirdi” our Sai’s abode and for sure His bhaktas only pilgrimage where we lose ourselves and get in trance world and yet ever wish and want to visit Shirdi again at the earliest when we have not even left Shirdi. Such is Your love Baba! Love You Sai A Lot Jai Jai Ho Sai…!
