Shirdi Sai Devotee Ridhima From Australia Says: Baba Thanks for coming on Guru Pournima day and sending Your blessings from Shirdi on my Birthday. I love You Baba.
Om Sairam. Dear MahaParayan Team, please find my experience mentioned below. My name is Ridhima and I am part of “MP-107 in Sai Nipunji’s” team. My humble obeisance to our Baba and to all of you.
Dear Sai Devotees I am also our Sai’s Daughter and connected to Baba since Feb 2015.
Though I have shared lots of experiences but this is a special one about how Baba blessed me on Guru Pournima and my birthday this year. Before I start writing I request Baba to please help me in writing this experience. It is with His grace only that we are breathing or can do anything in this world, be it spiritual or temporal. Without You I am nothing Baba. I just want to thank You from bottom of my heart. Please be by our side and bless each and every Sai Devotee. This happened on Guru Pournima 16th July 2019. I took day off from my work to serve Baba that day. I thought that this whole year Baba looked after His devotees day and night so like last year I decided to make 3 meals for Baba and to do all His aartis at home. I invited few friends too. I requested Baba the previous day to please come and accept my Bhakti. So I was very excited. I woke up at 5.00 am and gave snan (bath) to Baba, did His kakad aarti and offered Baba breakfast. Same way cooked lunch, snacks and dinner for Baba. I had kept a very simple menu. Baba’s menu was:
Breakfast– Hot Milk with some Nuts and Banana
Lunch– Black Gram Lentils with Kidney Beans in it( Maha ki daal), Rice, Yogurt, Halwa and Salad.
Evening Snacks- Egg Plant and Potato Pakoras with Coffee
Dinner- Matar Paneer with Roti, Khichdi, Salad and Plain Yogurt.
I was very happy and read my Parayan and sang Baba’s Bhajans, did all the four aartis and served Baba wholeheartedly. I did some mistakes too while cooking like the milk which I offered to Baba that morning; in my mind I had thought I will make coffee in the evening for us and will make coffee with fresh milk for Baba. But I don’t know what I was thinking; I made coffee of the same milk and also offered to Baba. It struck my mind later when we had already started the dhoop aarti. I apologized straight away to Baba. Secondly, I forgot to put salt in Khichdi for dinner. When I was having it later, I realized I hadn’t put any salt. I felt so bad but then again said sorry to Baba. Altogether it was a very happy day for all of us. Later while saying good night to Baba I asked Baba I hope I served You well and thanked Baba apne itni kripa kari, agar aap kripa na karte to me shayad sara din apki bhakti na kar sakti (Baba You showered lot of grace, if You wouldn’t have then I wouldn’t have probably been able to devote myself for the whole day).
At bed time, except for the temple lights when I switched off the main lights of the room, the temple looked really beautiful. I randomly clicked the pictures on my work mobile as that was near me. So after a week or so when I was going through my pictures I saw this pic and I was flabbergasted. I had no words and I was shocked. I saw Baba’s Image (Shadow) in that picture. Immediately I sent that pic to my Sai Parivar members on whats app and my Sai brother Upagupt Mohantyji in India. All of them confirmed that they could see Baba. Best thing was receiving a phone call from a dear Sai sister in Melbourne who was so happy to see Baba and my joy knew no bounds too. I thanked Baba 100 times and shared this picture and my joy with everyone. I was so happy to share this picture with all.
Second Leela was on my birthday, a week after Guru Pournima. It was Thursday and again Baba sent a lot of blessings. I told Baba that I need Your blessings today. Generally due to busy schedule and rotating roster I am unable to go to the temple on Thursday but that day I took off from my work to go to Baba’s temple and attend His aarti. Usually when I go to that temple there is one aunty that I meet. She is a very kind and pious lady. She usually gives me food from Baba’s thali which is offered during the shej aarti. That day when I met aunty I told her that it was my birthday today thinking that she will give me food from Baba’s thali. But instead she gave me a small silver locket of Baba; I touched her feet and thanked Baba and aunty for the blessings but still didn’t get any food. I forgot about it later. My friend was with me and as she was fasting, I told her to have more food. She asked me if I wanted to have some more but I said no. When she was coming I saw two plates in her hands. I said Nai aap khao maine nai khana (you eat, I don’t want to eat). She said Arre behna khao to sahi yeh sara khana Baba ki thali se hai (Oh, sister please have it as it’s all from Baba’s plate only). Oh my God! I couldn’t believe it. I never told her or anyone about my wish; it was just Baba or me Who knew about it. I thanked Baba a lot. Thanks is also very less as the way Baba shows His presence all the time.
Secondly, Sai Leela patrika arrived on my birthday. I had signed for yearly Patrika and it had already arrived in March, but I don’t know how come it arrived in July again and that too it reached home on my birthday. Baba apko koti koti Pranam.
Thirdly another dear Sai Sister whom I met in this wonderful Sai Parivar Australia group, sent me beautiful flowers with a wonderful book Sri Narsima Swamiji’s, ‘Apostle of Shirdi Sai Baba’ (A must read for all Sai Devotees).
Baba thanks again for coming on the Guru Poornima day and sending Your blessings from Shirdi on my Birthday. I love You Baba.Special thanks to all the team members of MahaParayan. Thank you for making this MahaParayan an instrument to reach and talk to Baba. Thank you to all. Om Sairam.
Om Sai Ram
Love You Deva. Jai Jai Ho Sai. 😊
