Anonymous Devotee from Canada says: Om Sai Ram. Please feel free to edit as needed. Please do not disclose my name & email id. Thanks to Sai, as it is only because of His grace that I am able to jot down my experience. May Deva forgive me for any mistakes.
I am putting down my experience & how I came under the grace of our Guru Shri Sai Baba. I had blissful experience which I would like to share with all of you. I used to believe in God, but I had no Guru. I also went to different missionaries to see and learn good things. I really wanted to have some experience, so that I can surrender myself wholeheartedly. I live in Canada and I went to India in Feb 2012. With Baba’s grace, I got a chance to visit Shirdi with my parents in that trip and I also attended Shej (Night) Aarti. I prayed to our Baba Ji that I want to feel that You really exist & experience something so that I can have strong faith in You as my Guru.
I came back on March 01, 2012 to Canada & I moved to new place in same city. I knew one family there and they told me that there is a Sai temple in our neighbourhood. I visited that temple for first time on Thursday in last week of March 2012 and I also brought the Sai Nav Guruvar Vrat (Nine Thursday Fasting) book from temple. After going through that book, I started keeping fast on Thursdays and that too with the wish that I wanted my Baba to help me in finding a good match for me or give indications to decide as it was very hard for me take this lifelong decision.
On April 05, 2012 it was Thursday and I went to work in the morning. I started reading some miracles experienced by people. While I was reading, I wished that Baba You listen to everyone and if you are really listening to me, please give me your divine Darshan in form of bunny (Rabbit). I could not trust that I saw bunny that very moment just for few seconds. It was blissful moment for me. My faith got stronger that day.
I started going to temple every Thursday and April 19th I heard Bhajan sang by an ardent devotee of Shri Sai Baba in that temple and it was very soothing and touched my heart. Next week again I went to temple and I offered prayers, listened to Bhajans and had prashad. When I was leaving from temple, I met the devotee, who sang that soothing bhajan. I complemented him for his lovely voice and same very moment, I saw bunny again. That moment I again got a feeling that bunny is blessing me and it was very beautiful feeling. It was our first meeting and I left after this small conversation.
Next Thursday, after offering prayers to our Sai Baba in temple, we both started walking & talking to each other and while we were walking I saw bunny again. I didn’t know what was happening, but I was feeling good. In that meeting we opened up little bit with each other and eventually we started liking each other and by the time I had to do udyapan (The Ritualistic Ending) of my fasts, I was clear in my thoughts for institution of marriage & moreover every time when I was with him, the presence of Sai Baba in form of bunny really helped me in taking decision.
In this July 2013, we both got married that too on Thursday & in presence of Shri Sai Baba (our wedding rituals happened in Shri Sai Baba Mandir , where we both met).Thank You Baba for showering Your blessings on us. Please do shower Your blessings on all Your devotees and mankind. We love You a lot Baba and many many thanks to You for everything. We surrender at Your Lotus feet. Om Sai Shri Sai Jai Jai Sai.
