Astonishing Trip To Shirdi In December 2019 

Astonishing Trip To Shirdi In December 2019

Shirdi Sai Global Mahaparayan Devotee Riddhu From Australia Says:

Om Sai Ram! Baba, thank You for giving me such a blissful experience on my visit to Shiridi. Dear Readers, this experience of mine occurred in the year 2019.

I had seen Hema Maa’s (a Sai devotee) video on YouTube in August 2019 on how Baba gave her darshan three times in Shirdi.  It had left a deep impression on my mind and since then as a little child, I kept on requesting Baba ” Baba, please give me the same kind of darshan or atleast a beautiful experience of Your Leela.” 

I knew it from the bottom of my heart that Baba accepted each request from the sincere heart but requests turn fruitful only upon His will and timings. The wait, in other ways, teaches us (we humans) two pearl lessons of beloved Baba i.e..…Shraddha (faith) & Saburi (patience).

To express the occurrence of Sai Leela in my life, I thank the MahaParayan team for giving me an opportunity again.

After watching this video as mentioned above, each day I was requesting beloved Baba “Baba, it’s been almost 2 years that I want to go to Shirdi and meet You. I have an earnest desire to be with You but as I’m in a new job, it appears as a difficult task to take a leave or get the leave application approved.” Nothing is hidden from the eyes of Antaryami Baba. He knows everything about a devotee. After a day or two, as per roster duty, I was issued a compulsory leave in October. I thought to put a request to my manager that if she could extend my leave further to last week of  November  as I had planned to make a trip to India. My manager is a nice lady officer yet strict over the rules and regulations of the company. I knew chances were grim and doubtful if she would change my dates. I sought Baba’s permission in my prayers and I spoke to her calmly without any expectation of approval. The response was simply unbelievable! She agreed for the extension. Further, she changed the dates as per my specified dates. My heart hugged beloved Baba’s heart with love and warmth.

Although the leave was for 20 days including the travelling time, the excitement to go to India, specifically Shirdi, had touched a new peak. It was time to get the tickets booked. I booked tickets to New Delhi as well as connecting flights from New Delhi to Shirdi. I discussed my plan with my parents (who are residing in India) that I would take off directly to Shirdi after landing in New Delhi. They agreed to it and I requested them to reach New Delhi so that we could meet. Just a week before the travel date, I received an exciting spoiler call that the flight from Delhi to Shirdi was cancelled. Without sparing a moment, I booked another flight from Delhi to Pune. It was a tough time again and it got cancelled too. Imagine the level of excitement and news of cancellation. Furthermore, my scheduled flight from Sydney to Delhi was delayed too. Everything appeared messy.

My heart weighed heavy and as a mere human, I started questioning Baba” Baba I simply want to meet You. Why such happenings? Baba, I don’t want to come back without meeting You.” Even during the flight kept on talking to Baba through thoughts like, “Baba, I will not return without meeting You.”  As I was a little sad, to change my mind, I picked up a magazine provided by the airline and started flipping the pages. Just after I had flipped a few pages, I saw an advertisement for a school and the name of the school was Sai International Public School. My eyes turned warm and wet to see Sai. My oscillating heart became still as I got assured that Baba will definitely call me to Shridi and that I will meet Baba for sure.

Each child is calm on reaching home but I was restless as I wanted to book the ticket for Shirdi anyhow. After speaking to a few airlines, I finally booked tickets from Delhi to Aurangabad. Usually when we go to India, we go to our Jathere as what we call ( Kuldevi/devta).  All those who have read Sai related books are aware that Sai always advised to pay respect to Esta Devta/Kul Devi first. So it stuck in my mind, Baba wanted us to go to Kul Devi Jathere first and then pay a visit to Him. With passage of time, the programme got fixed with in-laws to visit holy places like Golden Temple and other temples. The trip to holy places was three days of happiness and now a step to add a new level… going to Shirdi.  

4th December 2019

Journey was a bit long. CHD-DEL-AURANGABAD-SHIRDI. Ah! It took us almost one day to reach Shirdi. Taxi was called to take us from the airport.  Sitting in the car, I was in awe to see Baba’s white murti on the dashboard (not a photo). We truly felt that Baba had come personally to take us to His place so we all offered our Pranam to Baba. Finally our feet touched the holy land Shirdi. 

Even after a hectic trip, I had a new energy of excitement. So after completing the routines and lunch, I got prepared to meet our Baba at Samadhi Mandir. Playing pranks for small assurance is human tendency; so before entering the mandir premise, I said Baba “if Mere Sai Mere Sai bhajan By Lata Mangeshkarji is played I would feel that  You know I am here.” As soon as I entered, just after 5 minutes the bhajan by Lataji was played. Prostrated and thanked Baba for this.

The line for darshan tickets was huge and my in-laws are in their mid sixties yet we got darshan passes. In order to avoid the long line for passes, I requested the ticketing officials for darshan passes for next day morning (Thursday). The response that came in was a little rude, “You won’t get passes, why didn’t you book it online?” I was a little hurt and replied in a polite manner “Sorry, I am not aware about the procedure of online booking.” The official asked me to come at 7.00 pm.  I went to the ticket counter as told before, in progressive line. When my turn came, I requested again for tickets for the next day, Kakad Arati. The response was a little more rude “You won’t get tickets, please don’t irritate us.” I became sad with such an experience. On my sad gesture, the officials told me to come again at 8.00 pm.

Meanwhile, we all decided to have Baba’s darshan with the current tickets. So we went inside Samadhi mandir. We stood in progressive line and when it was my turn to meet Baba face to face, the sadness oozed out and I started complaining to Baba as a child to his parents, “Baba, see how they are not giving me tickets and behaving rudely with me.” I touched Samadhi and was moving out, just then my happy and excited son said, “Look Mama, Baba is looking.” After coming out from Samadhi Mandir,  we did parikrama of Neem tree and then again I went to stand in the queue for Kakad Aarti passes. 

As soon as I went there the man who spoke so rudely to me said with a smile…”Aao madam (come) Madam, you have been here time and again for a ticket. We have kept your ticket and please accept the juice.” So literally I was so touched by the gesture, tears rolled out of my eyes. We took the juice as Prasad from Baba. After receiving the tickets, I realised that I forgot to offer a salutation to Baba but offered complaints on meeting Him after such a long gap. I begged an apology to Baba on the very instance.

5th December 2019

We had blissful Kakad aarti darshan. Baba was in Pink dress. It was such a mesmerising experience. The experience cannot be explained in mere words. Did my Parayan chapters in the hotel room. I went to Iyer mama’s café to meet him and to asked about Vinny Maa. This was my first time meeting her. As soon as I entered the café I saw Vinny Maa sitting there with Nikhil Kriplaniji (director of website/YouTube channel Sai Baba devotees speaks). I was again shocked as I didn’t expect her to be there. She was making videos with Nikhilji. I rushed to her and said  to Vinny Maa – “Thank you I was here just to see you and see how I got you. She said that she was busy that day and asked me to come on the next day. Thank You Baba. Met Iyer mama who is such a pious soul. Thank you my Sai Parivar members for helping me to make a ‘things to do’ list in Shirdi. I had made a list of things to be done and one of them was doing circulations of neem trees 108 times. So I decided to do it at night time when Shej aarti starts. 

We had a beautiful day in Shirdi and I told my family that I would be in Dwarkamai until midnight. They were a bit scared but assured them that this is Baba’s nagri and that nothing could happen. So I went to Samadhi mandir at 8.45 pm. Read my chapter there and sat near Mukh darshan and talked to Baba. At 9.50 pm I started my parikrama. I didn’t know that the security guard would close the gates of Gurusthan after Shej aarti was over. By 11.15 pm I had only done 60 parkaramas. I requested him if he could allow me to complete it but he said, “Madam we have to close ” and he gave me Googal and asked me to put it into dhuni in gurusthan. I was a bit sad but then I thought that it’s ok Baba. I apologised and told Baba that I thought that Gurusthan remains open for the whole night but please accept my 60 parikramas. I sat at Mukh darshan until they closed the windows. Then I went to Dwarkamai. Sat with Baba there until 1.00 am. Read Stavan Manjari twice. There were so many people there talking to Baba, some were just looking at Baba’s picture, some sitting with their eyes closed. Such a beautiful experience. I just cannot forget and am still in tears while writing this. Thank You Baba.

6th December 2019– 

Next day was again in Shirdi. Went to meet Vinny Maa at her home. It was such a divine experience. Chatted with her for 15 minutes as she was not well that day. We did some shopping and we all were tired. We came back in the afternoon to keep our stuff and rest for 5 minutes. Time seemed to be running. The network and internet were playing hide and seek in the hotel room. As we were there for 5-10 minutes I thought that I would check on my mobile. As soon as I opened my facebook, I could see a Mahaparayan post. I thought I would read this post and then we would go. So the post was written By Vandana Dograji from Himachal. In the second paragraph she wrote that she completed parikrama of neem tree 108 times. My eyes were wide open. I didn’t read it further and told my mom that Baba was telling me to complete my parikrama today. I was just awestruck. I was so happy that Baba knows our wish even if we forget, Sai as Father never forgets yet reminds us everything. We did some more shopping, lit 9 diyas, sat in Lendi Bagh, brought mitti from Lendi Bagh to bring it to Australia, went to Korhale Temple and met Sada ji and a lot of other things. It was already 7.00 pm. Next day was our flight from Aurangabad.

I told mom that I was going to Samadhi Mandir today as well to spend time with Baba. I again thanked Baba and started my other 48 parikramas. I thanked Baba a million times. I got confused on how was it possible that the parikrama experience was posted on the same day, the day I had to complete 108 parikramas? How did the internet work for only 5-10 minutes? Just then, my dad said  “let us meet Baba again today.” So we were waiting in the queue. The waiting time began swelling. I told Baba “if You really want me to complete my parikarmas then I should have an early darshan so that I can pack my bag and be with You to spend some time.” Can you imagine that within 45 minutes how we were near Baba, we fail to understand. After coming out when I checked the time it took us 45 minutes. My eyes were filled with tears. Thank You Baba. 

Thank You Baba and Thank you Vandana Ji and the MahaParayan team. It is so important to share Sai experiences. Even Sai Satcharitra Chapter –III States “If a man utters My name with love, I shall fulfil all his wishes, increase his devotion. And if he sings earnestly My life and My deeds, him I shall beset in front and back and on all sides. Those devotees, who are attached to Me, heart and soul, will naturally feel happiness, when they hear these stories. Believe Me that if anybody sings My Leelas, I will give him infinite joy and everlasting contentment. It is My special characteristic to free any person, who surrenders completely to Me and who does worship Me faithfully, and who remembers Me, and meditates on Me constantly. How can they be conscious of worldly objects and sensations, who utter My name, who worship Me, who think of My stories and My life and who thus always remember Me? I shall draw out My devotees from the jaws of Death. If My stories are listened to, all the diseases will be got rid of. So, hear My stories with respect; and think and meditate on them, assimilate them. This is the way to happiness and contentment. The pride and egoism of My devotees will vanish, the mind of the hearers will be set at rest; and if he has wholehearted and complete faith, he will be one with Supreme Consciousness. The simple remembrance of My name as ‘Sai, Sai’ will do away with sins of speech and hearing.”

I do believe Baba speaks through these experiences as well. Again spent that night in Dwarakamai and got a chance to sweep the Dwarkamai floor. I sincerely want to thank the staff members in Dwarkamai who clean there for the whole night and give every devotee to wash their sins and Bad karmas;especially the young boys are seen doing their job with so much dedication. I was there until 1.30 am. Didn’t want to come back but the next day we had to go back.

Slept for a few hours and left Shiridi at 6.00 am. First our taxi got cancelled and then the new taxi took some time to come in. Our flight was at 10.45 am. We were already late and then our taxi’s wheel got punctured at 8.00 am when we reached Nevasa district. I just panicked. It took more than 1 hour for it to get repaired. But the best thing was the repair shop was just 500 metres away. So it was a big relief. The driver was an old man and he drove so fast that we reached Aurangabad at 10.15 am. We were finally in and our flight got delayed too. As soon as we went inside the airport my little son cried like never before. He said that Hewas missing Baba. Seeing the little one’s affection for Baba, I was in tears too. This was just such a blissful experience.

All Praises to our loveable and affectionate Sai Who loves us more than our brain  and heart can ever imagine or think. Keep loving Sai….Keep reading His leelas. Thank You Baba and Thank you Maha Parayan team.

Miraculous Experience After Joining MahaParayan      

Miraculous Experience After Joining MahaParayan 

Shirdi Sai Global Mahaparayan Devotee Tanya From India Says: 

Hello I am a devotee of Baba.  I have experienced the leela of Sai Baba many times for which I am very grateful to Him. Today I am going to tell you one of my most beautiful experiences with Baba Sai. 

I am an OCD patient and have been suffering for the last 7 years. I have not been cured yet. My medication is still going on. I always pray to Baba that everything should become alright like before and that I get cured of OCD. I was tense because of all the other problems in my life. Last Saturday also, I was too tense for one thing. I prayed before Baba to solve that problem. I went to sleep at night. On Sunday morning, I saw Baba in my dream and I saw the face of Baba immersed in water. 

As we already know, anything which is kept in water seems closer to our eye due to refraction. I saw Baba’s face in water closer to my face. I got up suddenly and was really happy to see Him in my dream. Then with His grace, the problem for which I was really tense got solved by afternoon. All thanks to my Baba Sai. 

Then again after some days, I was sleeping during the afternoon after lunch. I am normally upset because of the constant problems of life like OCD, academics, health and many things. I always pray Baba that everything will get alright. On that afternoon, I again saw Baba in my dream and that too again immersed in water. I saw Baba’s portrait in a room filled with water and He was being worshipped there. All puja materials were there and He was decorated with beautiful flowers and leaves. The conch was there with the incense sticks. All were giving me Puja vibes. I tried to see Baba, but couldn’t see Him distinctly. 

In my dream, I could feel that I was getting goosebumps as I could not recognize in which place I was. After some time, I realised that it was not a room and that it was  a seabed deep inside the sea. This thought again frightened me and I started to panic. Still I managed to get up and tried to offer Pushpanjali to God. I offered the flower but it didn’t touch Baba’s portrait. This time also I could not clearly see Baba’s face. Again I tried to offer one more flower, but I still failed and I was unable to see Him and so it was my third try and guess what, at the third time my flower exactly touched Baba’s portrait and I could see Him clearly and vividly. This again gave me goosebumps. I was really horrified and after getting such Darshan from Baba, I thought as Baba was telling me that each and every problem of my life would be solved by Him and everything will be alright soon.

I am grateful to Baba for coming in my dream and guiding me. This dream still gives me goosebumps when I think about it.  My Baba… Jai Sai Ram.

Om Sai Ram

What a  beautiful set of leelas again showing Baba directing our every step be it His darshan, joining Mahaparayan,  sharing or reading the MP experiences and what not. His timings are just perfect and everything happens for a reason. Seeing Baba in a dream and visiting Shirdi is equally auspicious. A true hearted and earnest wish of meeting Baba is enough for our Sai’s heart to melt and then just witness how He magically does unfathomable leelas and arrangements too for His bhakta to meet Him. But who can step in Shirdi without our Baba’s invitation? May He always keep blessing His children through various means. Thank You and Love You Deva. Jai Jai Ho Sai!😊 - Pooja Garg


Keep Doing Parayan, Good Things Would Surely Happen and have already started happening too !!!
