Shirdi Sai Mahaparayan Devotee Dr Vinaya From USA Says:
Series of miracle to happen before and after being part of Mahaparayan group and with most beautiful emotions ever Baba is around me, “WHY FEAR, WHEN I AM HERE?”
It all began on a Thursday, somewhere in 2018 when one of a recently moved family in our apartment hosted 9th Thursday pooja. I was not invited but I heard about that pooja. So I called her voluntarily and told her, “I am a devotee of Shirdi Sai Baba. I heard about pooja, I would like to be a part of it.” She was so happy about that as we did know much of each other before. She told me that she had me in her thoughts and it would be her pleasure to have me for the Pooja. That day was not a normal day for me. We had moved into our newly bought apartment a year ago and day by day paying the loan and maintaining other expenditures was becoming challenging.
I went at the scheduled time, everything was nicely arranged. I looked at my Sai, with devotion filled in my eyes but my heart was heavy with fear, anxiety and thoughts running in my mind about hard days ahead. During the distribution of Prasad, I was given a tambulam and she told me that she would like to offer the book to me to do that 9 Thursday vrat. I knew about this vrat, my mom had earlier provided me similar book and yellow cloth to perform almost two years back but surprisingly I never got thought of doing it and like always I believed that time had not yet come to motivate me or some inner force to shake me and guide me to perform that Pooja. This I felt happened in a more systematic way, that is participating in the pooja on 9th Thursday at a devotee’s place and continuing the trend of worship. With Baba’s blessings, everything got so nicely arranged that it was possible for me to start the pooja next week itself.
As days passed, I could feel the sense of security and positivity guarding me. During this period I got an invitation letter from one university in the USA to attend for an interview for which I had applied almost 6 months back to join a fellowship program. Surprisingly everything got so well-connected regarding money arrangements, visa, travel and accommodation in such a way that, I completed 9th Thursday pooja and tenth Thursday was my interview date in the USA. I successfully completed the interview, got acceptance but I rejected the offer worrying about leaving my husband and kids for a certain time. But during my pooja I had given that book to one of my neighbour friends to perform a similar pooja and the day she had her 9th day completed, I got the offer again from the USA which was more suitable and comforting that I accepted and decided to move to the USA.
It was one Sunday morning when I told my husband over the phone, “It’s true that I am here in the USA today due to Baba’s blessings. I could personally feel His presence most of the time but the comforts I get when I see Him like how I saw in India behind any vehicle, or any name plate are missing as I can’t see Him around here. There is not even one Baba mandir nearby where I can visit.”
Then in just one hour I got a message from my friend who lives in Dubai and to be honest we hardly spoke regularly; she called and explained about Mahaparayan to me and I became part of the Mahaparayan group of the USA which is MP-1146N1 greenhouse.
Joining Mahaparayan was such a beautiful emotion for me, since then there are so many miracles which have happened. I found a Mahaparayan group in India that made my mom, family and friends be part of Mahaparayan. Being a part of Mahaparayan I feel so secured and guarded. It’s not just one or two but every week I come across one or the other thing which makes me bow to Sai‘s assurances of motherly love “No matter how far His devotees are, He will watch and take care.”
I am here in the USA due to Baba’s blessings and persistent blessings I am getting by being part of Mahaparayan. My husband supported me to join this fellowship program here in the USA and supported me in every possible way to help me do this program. It was because of my parents and their endless love that my kids were also able to manage my absence.
Meanwhile my husband applied and attended an interview here in February and got acceptance to come here in June. Baba took care of everything starting from my decision to move to the USA and other series of things involved with the same. But now with Covid 19 crisis and uncertainties around what will happen to my legal immigration status which would end on June 30th started bothering me which was supposed to be processed for extension somewhere in April. Now in this amid situation how could I expect things to happen or approach my director who was worrying me all time. I prayed to Baba that Thursday. It was on Ram Navmi day and for my enhanced blessings I had chapter 50 & aarti allotted to me in Mahaparayan. Before reading parayan, I prayed to Baba that I don’t know where this one year sacrifice is going to take me. Same day I received an email from my director for a Visa extension. It was just a week back that I had submitted for my visa extension and its kind of approved and proceeding without any problem. Even in this amid the situation of COVID -19 it gives a feeling because of baba’s blessings that “Not all storms come to disrupt, some come to clear our path.”
I am awaiting to reunite with my family here soon. In this one year staying away from family, each day Baba made me feel that I am not alone and that He is along with me all the time. Baba is directing His blessings and I am waiting with devotion and patience for my husband and kids to reach here though it might be delayed due to the opening of international travel. Every moment one thing is true. His vibes say “My blessings are already with you.” Yes, there are only uncertainties around today in the entire world but one thing I am certain about is having His blessings. He is around all the time and so this sacrifice can’t be meaningless. There was a reason behind and He will show me soon someday. I continue to read allotted chapters of Sai Satcharitra every week and chapter 1 due to covid crisis to seek His blessings.
Thank You, Baba, for Your kindness. Bow to Sri Sai, peace be to all.

Sai devotees need not fear the shadows in their life. When there is shadow in our life, it simply means that there is certainly light somewhere around. So tough times similarly indicate good times ahead as life is a combination of good and bad times. Unless the bad karmas end, how can good times turn up? Sai is the light in dark. Sai is the certainty in times of uncertainties. He is the Yes for all No’s. He is the Possibility for every impossibility. He is the assurance to lift us up morally and intellectually. When everything fails and all the doors seem to be closed Baba is always there Who can lead us successfully to the best solutions. Remember Him wholeheartedly, devote and serve Him and He will never let us down. Hold on to Him firmly and He will soon show us the way Love You Deva. Jai Jai Ho Sai. 😊
