Sai Baba Helped Us Sail Through Covid
Shirdi Sai Global Mahaparayan Devotee Sarita From India Says:
Dear Pooja Ji,
I am Sarita C. Singh, a member of the Global Mahaparayan group MP-354N1. My husband, Praveen Kumar Singh, is part of MP-7129N1. We are Sai devotees and dedicated to Sai service by reading for the Global Mahaparayan every Thursday. We are also part of a group where we do collective parayan every day to help other devotees get rid of their problems. We feel blessed to be able to do that.
In the morning of Diwali (14th November 2020), me and my husband found the breakfast very bland but we did not realise that it could be an indication of COVID-19. We continued our preparation for the evening puja. The whole day I was wondering why there was deterioration in the sense of smell. However with no other symptoms, I was pretty confident that there was no reason to fear. After breakfast we went to my parents’ house and hugged them. We were meeting my parents after a gap of almost 6 months. We had kept ourselves isolated from everyone because of the pandemic for this period. By the grace of Sai Ram, Diwali was very peaceful.
The following morning there was further deterioration in smell and taste for me and my husband. After consulting a doctor on the phone I got tested for COVID-19 but I was confident the result would be negative. The report was expected the next morning, 16th November.
We were thinking of listening to the Mahaparayan Podcast for a long time but could not do that for many reasons. In the evening of 15th November 2020, we happened to listen to the Podcast as our daughter was sleeping. We listened to episodes 7 and 8. Episode 8 was “Baba Says Mahaparayan is for Samastha Loka ”, narrated by Smt. Ritu Kansar. The episode ended with an assuring note that “Baba is there for everyone and he is with us to help us face whatever challenges we are facing”. The choice of the experience which Baba made Ritu ji narrate and our chance to listen to it seemed a miracle in itself because I tested positive the next morning but I hardly panicked as Baba had told us in advance, through the podcast, that He is there to take care of us.
On 17th November, my husband and my daughter also tested positive. For many days, we had minor symptoms but they vanished by His grace. Baba averted major complications through the Sarvpeeda Nivarak Udi. For example, my daughter’s oxygen saturation level fell below normal one evening and we were advised by the doctor to immediately admit her to a hospital for ventilator treatment. As we started arranging for the ambulance and admission, I asked my husband to apply Udi and give it to my daughter to drink with water. Within minutes after giving Udi her oxygen level became normal. On another occasion I was breathless and surrendered the condition to Sai Ram. Sometimes, I slept peacefully and woke up only in the morning. We could feel the presence of Sai Ram all through this period through various miracles like these and there was never a moment of panic in me despite being asthmatic. I kept praying to Baba to keep my family and my aged parents, whom we had met on the day of Diwali, safe and healthy. And, He listened to me as we did not spread the virus to my parents’ family or my househelp.
As we are closer to ending the quarantine, Baba showed one more miracle. One morning, as I opened the main door to pick up the milk bottle, there was a strong fragrance of Udi on the staircase and that pleasant fragrance entered the entire house. I call it a miracle because there has been no other family in the building for the last 15 days. These instances inspire me to devote more of myself to the service of Baba, my Sadguru. I keep wondering what have I done so far to deserve such kindness and blessing. Baba showed us that He is with us and I have full faith in Him. Thank You Baba. Jai Jai Ho Sai!
Om Sai Ram!

Surrendered To Baba After Joining Mahaparayan
Shirdi Sai Global Mahaparayan Devotee Shanta Anant Says:
I have been introduced to this Global Mahaparayan by my neighbour Priya Sudheer (she is like my little sister to me). Priya and family are great Sai Devotees . For me Priya and her husband Sudheer are very helpful and I see them as being sent by Baba .
After joining the Global Mahaparayan, I became more and more attached to Sai Baba. The following incident made me surrender myself wholly to Baba .
On 23rd Nov my husband had been admitted in hospital as his Covid test was found positive. We both were shocked as we never had stepped out of the house from March onwards. As he was positive , the next day I took the test though I had no symptoms, but to my utter shock I was also positive and got admitted. While going to the hospital I took Baba’s Satcharitra book and also Udi packet.
My husband had a mild infection.
But in my case they said that the infection was very severe, my oxygen level was dropping and my blood had started clotting and I would be shifted to ICU if things got worse.
I held the Sarcharithra book close to my chest and prayed to Baba to please help me to come out of it and give me strength to fight it.
Within 2 days my infection reduced and doctors were surprised to see my response to the medicines so fast. After 14 days we were discharged and came home on Dec 3rd and saw that too on Thursday, the Mahaparayan day.
Baba, You are great. This shows “If one surrenders himself fully at His feet He will be taken care of . This shows Baba is ever living and helping His devotees even now in this Kaliyuga.
So let us surrender completely to Baba as He grounded cholera to pieces. Please Baba ground the Corona virus also to pieces and save the whole world. Om Sairam Om Sairam Om Sairam!

THANNO SAI PRACHODAYAT…!”

Surrender and Sai will help you sail by renewing your strength and fate. Serve Him with love and devotion and He will give you eternal happiness. Baba fulfils our wishes in His ways. All may forsake us but Baba will never leave us. He will make our life’s garden beautiful with fresh green leaves and remove the dried leaves. Good deeds will definitely bear good fruits. Let us plant good seeds (deeds) in the garden of our life to get luscious flowers and fruits. Let this garden never get dried up (lose faith). If we surrender our garden of life to this great Gardener Sai then our life will be filled with beautiful colours, fragrance and fresh breeze. Let us root out the weeds (doubts and negativity) and add manure of pure love, faith and devotion. Thank You and Love You Deva. Jai Jai Ho Sai!😊 - Pooja Garg
