Sai devotee writes about her experience.
I have been a devotee of Sai Baba for a long time. Never had the opportunity to visit Shirdi. It is said that when Baba calls you go. One night in my dream I got a vision of me entering the Shirdi Sai Baba complex. In the vision, I entered the complex from a small circular gate. On my right I saw a statue of the deities of my religion. As I walked further in my dream, I saw the statue of Buddha on the right. On the left side I saw a tree and as I walked further I saw a group of people drinking and having fun. I could not understand what I saw in the vision. Later on I understood what the vision meant.
1. One day, while in Pune, I decided to visit Shirdi. I had a very bad cold. Went to the Doctor and got medication. The next day I boarded the bus for Shirdi When I landed in Shirdi I went to buy some offerings for Baba and I entered the temple complex through a small circular gate (similar one I saw in my vision). This gate is near the administrative office, at the back of the complex. I knew nothing about Shirdi. Sai Baba showed me the way. I had a very peaceful and devotional darshan and returned to Pune the same day. The whole pilgrimage to Shirdi I did not feel sick. When I returned home in the night my cold started again.
2. I always asked Baba to give a small picture 2″ x 2″ in size to keep in my prayer area. One day, I was walking in the market when I saw a bangarang woman selling pictures. She had a picture of baba of size 2″ x 2″ . I purchased the picture from her. I have not seen that woman again though I pass that side often while going to the market. Now this picture is in my mandir.
