Experiences Shared By Members Of MahaParayan:
Shirdi Sai Mahaparayan Devotee Gowri Oberoi from India says: I am Gowri Oberoi from New Delhi. Since I was a child I have been close to Baba and have had numerous experiences that showed me that Baba is ever with me. Joining Mahaparayan in July, 2017 and getting to know Sai angels like Pooja Garg and all other sewaks and Sai devotees and getting the chance to do Sai sewa as Chief in Mahaparayan (MP school of 108 classrooms), Principal of AASM, Class Teacher of 365 days parayan group and being able to do parayan in BMP and many more such sewas are all amazing blessings of Sai which have enhanced my faith manifold in my dear Sai Baba. Sai is my life, my Mother, Father, Brother, Friend, Guru, Guide and everything.
My writing skills aren’t good, but whatever I am writing is with Sai in my heart and so each word is from Sai Himself. Om Sai Ram.
Thank you Sai for always being with me. Zillions of bows and thanks to You my Sai, my life.
On 24th February, 2021 at about 10 pm, I suddenly felt like I was choking in the chest and checked my pulse using an oximeter (which we had at home) and it was 110. Then after sometime I also had chest pains and started to feel dizzy. I felt scared and told the symptoms to my husband and he spoke to a friend and his friend spoke to his doctor friend who said that we should go to the nearby Fortis hospital emergency room immediately as he suspected it to be Covid-19.
I started to chant ‘Om Sai Ram’ continuously and took the Holy Sai Satcharitra book and hugged the book all the time while sitting in the car, till I reached the hospital. All the way I kept chanting and many thoughts were in my mind. I was so uncomfortable and felt like this was the end of my life and Baba was calling me to His feet. Seeing the nearby passing scenes like trees, market place and other places, I was thinking that this is probably the last time I am seeing all this. I kept praying to Baba to take care of my children and husband if something happens to me, as they would feel sad and lonely.
I also asked Baba in my mind to come and hold my hand and take me with Him if I was going to the unknown land.
When I reached the hospital ER they connected all the usual pulse, BP and oxygen level checkers and saw that my BP was way too high and was at 225/110! The attending Doctor told my husband that this was very high and risky and that I might get a stroke or heart attack or brain hemorrhage if the BP doesn’t come down. They gave me some medicines and did a very painful blood oxygen test and did the covid antigen test too.
Then I remembered that chanting ‘Vitthala Vitthala’ brings down the pulse rate so I started to chant. After some time, they did the ECG test and that was normal as I was still chanting ‘Vitthala Vitthala’. In about an hour, my BP came down to 160/100 and I felt better. I wanted to see what Baba had to say and picked up the Satcharitra and opened a random page while still chanting ‘Vitthala Vitthala’ and looked at what was the first line that Baba made me read!
The line, “How fond was Baba for Vitthal worship was illustrated in Bhagwantrao Kshirsagar’s story.” Baba made me realise that He was listening to my Vitthala chant and that He was right there with me! This made me relaxed. Immediately I got to know that the antigen test for Covid was also negative and I did not have Covid. The next day I was asked to get an RT PCR test also done to reconfirm that there was no Covid infection. I was also asked to get an ElectroCardiograph and Colour Doppler test done after a few days.
After 3 hours, upon my request, I was discharged from the hospital ER and came home and was feeling fine but was still taking 3 BP and heart medicines for protection which I could stop after 1 month. That night Baba was with me, took complete care and took me out of danger; as all my tests were normal.
Next day the RT PCR test was done and it was also negative by Baba’s grace. Doctor wrote in the prescription to take Covaxin shots and I was able to take both the vaccine shots and had no side effects after either of the shots by Sai Baba’s grace.
The experience doesn’t end there.
After a week, I went to get the ElectroCardiograph and Colour Doppler Tests done at a diagnostic centre. The doctor who was doing the test pressed my chest region very hard with the measuring instrument and I had severe pain and as usual I remembered Baba and in my mind and while chanting Sai Naam, I thought that just like Hanumanji had Lord Rama in His heart, Sai Baba is my everything so when the test was being done, I was asking Baba to show me that He is in my heart too. The doctor told me after the test was done that the test results were normal too.
Later when I received the film of the ElectroCardiograph and Colour Doppler tests the next day, I curiously looked at it and was stunned and ecstatic to see an OM (ॐ) sign in the heart picture of my test result! Surely I must have done some good deeds in my past birth that Baba is in my heart in His nirgun OM form!!!! Sharing the ElectroCardiograph and Colour Doppler test pictures of my heart below.
Naturally I got overwhelmed looking at this and every cell in my body was filled with love for my dear Sai. This made me understand that my relationship with Baba is strong and Baba has accepted me as His servant.
Om In Test Reports
Sai is in every breath, every cell, every atom in my body, in every heartbeat and pervades my soul.
My life is Sai’s. Sai is one with me. What else do I need or could ask for? He made me realise that when we surrender to Him, He merges in us. This health scare and hospital visit, everything was for me to get this realisation! How wonderfully He showed this! The joy I got by this realization is unexplainable. I wish that each Sai devotee gets this realization.
Needless to say that now I am much better and getting healthier day by day by my Sai’s grace as He is with me in every step towards good health. My heart is healthy (of course!) and my BP is normal and I have weaned off most medicines with the help of Sai’s angel Doctors, Nurses, Therapists and others who took care of me with so much love. They all are different forms of Sai.
Sai is in each one of His devotees and also in non-devotees as He is Parabrahma, the Universal Source Who is in every atom of every animate and inanimate thing in the whole existence and beyond. Om Sai. Sarvam Sai… Sai Sai Sai…. Sai Sai Sai… Sai Sai Sai….!

Anonymous Shirdi Sai Mahaparayan Devotee from India says:
Om Sairam Poojaji. Please keep me anonymous in this posting. A couple of weeks back something was bothering me and I started fearing that I have some disease. The same day I wished to see those exact lines from chapter 29 of Sai Satcharitra which I am stating here.
“It is to be noted here that doubts and difficulties surround
us, just to move us and confirm our faith. We are tested as it were.
If we only hold on steadily to Baba, with full faith and continue our
endeavours, our efforts will be ultimately crowned with success.”
That night before going to bed I was rolling through my photo library. I was going through my archive and surprisingly I found this message and I felt satisfied and felt calm. Next morning was a Thursday parayan day April 30th 2020 and my allocation chapters were 28 & 29. Again Sai gave me the opportunity to read my chapters and put my mind at ease. It was re-assurance from Him that everything will fall into place whatever the odds may be.
These words have such a deeper meaning if you think about it. It truly teaches you surrender and patience at its pinnacle and steadily holding on to His feet alone can save us from all the miseries of this worldly existence.
Someone may think this is a coincidence. But I don’t think so. It is Sai Who has arranged these things and He alone knows who reads what chapters where and under what circumstances. He alone knows the Highest good to His devotees. May Baba bless us all and ever keep us at His feet in bliss. Om Sai Ram!

Sai our Guru is more alive than the people alive! He is in our heart and His words are always true. He keeps showing His presence. Om is Sai and Sai is Om and hence the Mahaparayan logo too shows Sai in Om and Om in Sai! Guru is like a cushion, a pillow to comfort our life at its best and make us reach our goal. Once whoever seeks this cushion can only be rest assured to rest in peace and feel the bliss even while sleeping. He will make all our dreams come true. Love, surrender, gratitude, faith and patience is the Guru Dakshina that all He longs for. Happy Guru Pournima to all. May the light of Guru’s knowledge dispel all the darkness of our ignorance very soon. Love You Deva. Jai Jai Ho Sai!😊
