Shirdi Sai Mahaparayan Devotee Mahua Biswas From India Says: Om Sairam! Myself Mahua Biswas, a staunch devotee of Sai. I was quite young when I watched a movie based on Sai Baba’s life on television for the first time. At that time, Baba was yet another form of God for me Who magically could light earthen pots with water. I even hadn’t seen Baba’s photo before I started watching a TV series based on His life. Gradually, Baba became my everyday saviour. As a kid, I used to pray to Him for small troubles that I used to face. He was my ‘go-to God’ when I lost even my pencils and erasers. For some reason, I had this incredible faith in Him and an assurance that He is there to solve my problems.
I remember once my father brought home a few packets of incense-sticks that had Sai’s pictures on them. This was when my sister and I were delighted to have Sai Baba’s photos for the first time in my life. We cut those pictures of Him from the incense-stick packets and worshipped Baba in our own way. Being small kids at that time we didn’t know any of His mantras or formal worship rituals and adored Baba in our heartfelt ways.
Once I came to know that one of my cousins loves Baba a lot. In fact, her entire family was Baba’s devotee. They had a big photograph of Baba in their house where Baba was in a posture of blessing. I and my family joined the ‘Bhajan Sandhya’ at their house and felt blessed. I came to know about Udi from the chief performers of the ‘Bhajan Sandhya’ that evening. Back home we started performing Baba’s ‘arati’ from the ‘arati’ book we bought from our cousin’s home. I have never asked Baba for anything. I and my sister used to sing the songs in our own compositions from one of His book of ‘arati’ lyrics compilation I had procured from the local market.
I craved to have Baba’s murti at home. Finally, I bought Baba’s murti to home way back in 2005 while I went to Jabalpur to attend one of my cousin’s wedding. I wanted to have a crown for Baba but I couldn’t find a suitable one. To my utter wonder, I found a crown in my suitcase while unpacking after I returned home from Jabalpur. My joy was beyond any limit when I found it to be a perfect fit for the Baba’s murti I had at home! I and my sister felt more connected to Baba after this.
Sadly, all of a sudden my mother fell ill in 2014 when her blood sugar level rose to almost 800 and had to be immediately hospitalized. She was into a coma due to this sudden escalation in her diabetes level. Coincidentally, our doctor was also Baba’s follower and he assured us of his best treatment procedures. He had Baba’s Udi on his forehead. I was sad and being sensitive towards Sai Baba, I told Him that I wouldn’t talk to Him ever if He doesn’t cure my mother this time. My father also prayed to Sai and promised to get Him a crown once Maa recovered from her illness.
After a fight beyond imagination in the ICU for 4 days, my mother recovered and was discharged from the hospital on the 7th day. The entire week Sai Baba used to give us darshan (appear in front of us) through TV and various other means. Interestingly, a white dog used to come and watch us all night at our house for those 7 days. We were lucky to be immensely blessed by Sai Baba.
Later in 2017, my father fell ill once in the middle of the night and we rushed him to the hospital with the help of our neighbours. I had kept Sai’s blessed rice grains touched on my father’s forehead and chanted Baba’s name till we reached the hospital. It was the same doctor this time as well. My father had a sudden fall in blood sugar that caused him to be unconscious that night, the doctor said. With Saiji’s grace, my father recovered and came back home.
Due to some personal reasons, my sister was going through some emotional distress in 2019 when she discovered the Saiyug network on the internet. She watched several testimonial videos of people who narrated their experience with Sai Baba and came to know about ‘MahaParayan’ from there. My ‘MahaParayan’ journey started on 6th June 2019 which incidentally happens to be my birthday as well. Gradually, I was blessed to get the opportunity to serve as the Class teacher from 11th July, the same year. Next was my opportunity to serve as the Vice-Principal.
My father fell ill again in 2020 with an inordinate rise in his prostate level this time. We consulted the same doctor who advised an ultrasound and further referred to an urologist. The urologist further prescribed a biopsy which I wasn’t much in favour of. I trusted Sai Baba and believed in His miracles. I told the same to our doctor. Unfortunately, my father’s prostate level was still at risk after a month when our doctor strongly insisted on the biopsy. I still didn’t lose my faith in Sai Baba and kept on praying to Him to lower my father’s prostate levels. For the next one month, I kept on praying to Saiji and put His Udi on my father’s forehead. This time my father’s prostate level was nearly normal and ultimately reached a secured measure in the next month. Our doctor was delighted to see the results. Sai Baba has always protected us. I have been blessed to serve as the Principal of MahaParayan last month. As per my promise to Baba, I have shared my experiences of bliss and gratitude with you all.
Om Shri Sainathaya Namah! I love You, Baba! Please keep on blessing us always.
