Experiences Shared By Members Of MahaParayan:
Anonymous Shirdi Sai Mahaparayan Devotee From India Says:
Hello everyone. Please keep my name and email id anonymous. I have been wishing to write about some of my experiences for a long time but since I am not great at writing I kept delaying it. I have been a devotee of Baba for just over 2 years. In this period He has given me such experiences and support that I feel that I must have done some good karma in the past. He called me closer to Him when I was going through a tough and hopeless time.
Yes, He has tested my faith and patience all the while and there were times when I used to cry in front of Him and scold Him for all the bad things that were happening in my life. But reading the experiences in your site has certainly made a good impact on me and I have held onto Him.
Few experiences of the devotees stay close to my heart either because I could relate to the same as they were mirroring my life’s situation or because I was just astonished to see the faith and complete surrender of the devotees during their trying times. Reading these experiences made a huge impact on me. Since then I decided to share my experience hoping that my story could provide relief to other devotees too.
There were a lot of changes in me after coming in contact with Baba. I am actively trying to avoid being judgmental, avoid any unnecessary discussions or gossiping. I feel He is constantly watching over me and correcting me at each step I take. My outlook on life has changed. Yes, I am still not perfect but trying to change myself in a better way day by day. I am already a part of the Mahaparayan group MP- 6N1-Pinky Sai group.
Now coming to my experience. We had relocated from another state a few months back as part of my husband’s job change. I will also share the story of him getting his new job after I joined the Mahaparayan, sometime soon. My son, who is 13 years old, was enrolled in a new school after we changed cities. That too was a blessing of Baba which again I will share later.
We had few issues with the way a teacher was teaching for a certain subject. My husband and I decided to discuss this matter with his class teacher. But the particular subject teacher didn’t take our feedback in a positive way. Since then, she made my son’s life miserable by constantly shaming him in class and scolding him for every chance she got. Due to this my son, who was excellent in this subject previously, started to hate this subject and his scores became worse day by day. I was clueless on how to handle this, as I realized that the more I discuss the matter at school, the worse she will treat my child. I kept praying to Baba the whole time to protect my child from her discouraging words. But the torture with words continued. Every time I heard that she passed a cruel comment on him I would get enraged and it spoiled my mood.
Finally, she called us for a meeting. The email invite itself was quite rude. When I got the mail I planned on different ways to tell her how mean she had been to my son and various other issues that came up in the class. I was sure this meeting was not going to end well and my child was going to suffer even more.
On Thursday morning I prayed to Baba to guide me and also protect my child. I went to the question and answer page which I usually refer to. The response came that someone is troubling you but everything will be sorted out and work will be completed when 2 persons come together and with Baba’s grace disputes will be settled. Since then I had peace of mind and I prayed to Baba to stay in our mind and speak on our behalf during the meeting so that everything ends in a better way both for my child and his teacher.
As expected, the meeting went off well and the teacher later on had a talk with my son. Long story short, she has started recognizing his potential and also talks pleasantly to him. My child also comes from school happily and I can surely see some positive changes in him. Through this experience Baba taught me that there should be no permanent hatred towards anyone in life and if you don’t like someone just walk away from him but never retaliate for their actions.
Another experience happened about 2 weeks back, around the same time when the teacher had called us for the meeting. My mother-in-law had gone to the doctor with general complaints about her health. The scan showed that there was some problem with her heart and they asked her to come for a thorough review with the cardiologist in 2 weeks’ time. The complication would have resulted in a surgery too. I was quite worried as going through a heart surgery at her age is not an easy thing. Since then I started taking Udi mixed with water and prayed to Baba to heal her. I also read Stavan Manjari during the time of her appointment with her doctor. In between the reading, I got a call from her saying that there was no problem and no medicine was also required as she was perfectly fine then. This was purely my Baba’s blessing. This experience is proof of the power of Baba’s Udi. This experience also taught me to pray wholeheartedly with complete faith in Baba without any doubt or fear of an untoward thing to happen.
My little time with Baba and my experiences with Him in this short period has made me realize that Baba never expects any formal pujas or rituals in His name. All that is required is pure faith and patience in Him. Few of my friends who are also devotees of Baba tell me that Baba is partial and never answers their prayers. All I can say is that Baba has not granted all my prayers as I believe that He knows what is best for us in the long run. I don’t look at Baba as a wish fulfilling tree but I want Him to guide me to be a better person, take away all the negative thoughts and insecurities from my life and also to keep my family safe. Never indulge in unnecessary discussion or gossip or fault finding. We should use our time in doing something good to others and always remember His name even when you are working. Good and bad times do come to every human being but hold on to our faith in Baba.
I conclude by putting a phrase from Stavan Manjari which goes like this:
The fragrance of flowers is transmitted
To the thread which ties the garlands.
Whosoever they come in touch with,
To him they impart
A part of their greatness.
Baba never expects any ritualistic worship from us. We are all very lucky to be chosen by Him and be in contact with Him. Come what may, never lose trust in Him and hold on to Him tightly. He will carry us and protect us in His arms like a mother holds on to her baby. Om Sai Ram!

Shirdi Sai Mahaparayan Devotee Swati From India Says: Sairam to all the readers. I am our Baba’s daughter, who only by His grace has been introduced to this wonderful journey of Mahaparayan. This Mahayagna has opened many other spiritual gateways for me and I really thank Poojaji and her team who work untiringly for Baba’s cause. Truly, Baba has gifted us this treasure trove to cleanse our sins, to purify our souls and fulfill all our temporal wishes. Through this, He is also teaching us how to have Shraddha and Saburi and be a better person each day.
Before I start mentioning my experience, I want to say sorry to Baba for penning down this experience so late, even though I promised that I will write it down the very next day. Now that with Your inspiration, I am finally writing it down Baba, please strengthen my determination and devotion to complete this successfully, since without Your grace, not even a bacteria can exist.
This incident happened the day before Diwali last year. Unfortunately, my father-in-law’s mobile got lost and he was unable to recollect as to where he had used it last. We searched the entire house and it was not found. He had been out for his evening walk some time prior to this incident. So, he got scared wondering if he had dropped his mobile somewhere outside. Everyone in the family got upset since it was the day before Diwali. I was also worried about the repercussions that would happen. If the mobile was not found, then the next day’s Mahalakshmi puja would surely not be conducted and this made me tensed.
I prayed to Baba for some miracle. My husband and my father-in-law went out to search in all those places which he had visited during his evening walk. They went to the ATM first and it was not found. They scanned the roads taken and in the dim evening lights, there was no trace of the phone. Finally, my father-in-law said that he was sitting on the benches at the bus stand for some time and added that there was no need to search that place as he had lost all hopes of getting the phone back. But my Sai inspired my husband and he said that they have already spent so much effort and there is no harm in putting in some more. So, he went alone to look at the bus stand area.
Here comes the unfolding of our Baba’s astounding grace, which gives me goosebumps whenever I think of it. On reaching there, my husband noticed some object resembling a card beneath the bench. When he went near, in that Eureka moment, he realized it was the phone which they had been frantically searching for so long. Feeling jubilant, he cascaded this news to all of us.
On hearing this, my joy knew no bounds. His leelas cannot be comprehended by us and whenever we call Him in distress, He really does come and brings us out of the mess that we are in. Look at this leela. A bus stand is a public place. So many people would have come there, sat on the benches but no one noticed it! Logically, I am still unable to digest it. But in the Sai world, everything is possible. Faith can do wonders and faith in Sai can give us self-realization, then what big deal is a mobile phone.
Needless to say, everyone at home was so happy that day. They started praising the Bangalore public etc. But in the deepest of my hearts, I knew the truth. My Superhero Baba had yet again saved our day.I don’t have words to express my gratitude to You Baba. Hopefully, someday I will be the person You want this child of Yours to be. Love You so so much Sai. My koti koti pranams at Thy Holy Feet!
