Story Behind Sai Navguruwar Vrat (9 Thursday Vrat):

A woman named Kokila lived in a city with her husband Maheshbhai. Both of these had a love for each other. But Maheshbhai’s character was quarrelsome. He did not possess a feeling of speaking. Neighbors were fed of Maheshbhai’s character, but Kokila was a religious girl. She had immense faith in God and she endured everything without uttering a single word. Gradually her husband’s business declined and the earnings were also negligible. Now Maheshbhai did not go anywhere and remained back in the home. Moreover, he was attracted to the wrong path. Now his quarrelsome nature increased two-fold.

It was afternoon time. An old man came and stood in front of the home of Kokila. He had a strange glow on his face. He wanted dal and rice. Kokila gave the old man what he needed and folded her hands before him. The old man said May Sai bless you with happiness. Kokila said there is not any happiness in my destiny and narrated everything about her miserable life to the old guy. The old man explained to the Vrat to get 9 Thursdays. The Vrat may be done by eating fruits or simply by taking lunch or dinner. If possible go to Sai Temple or otherwise worship Sai Baba at home for 9 Thursdays, watch quickly and give food to the hungry individuals, and distribute 5, 11, and 21 Sai Vrat Books according to your economic condition. However, you should have profound faith in Sai Baba and have patience in your mind. If anybody does this Vrat and duly performs its concluding ceremony, Sai Baba fulfills his/her desires.

Kokila did the Vrat for 9 Thursdays, distributed Sai Vrat books, and fed the bad on the 9th Thursday. Now all of the quarrels in her home had disappeared. There was complete happiness as Maheshbhai’s character had changed. His business now came back on track. In a short period, their economic condition also improved and everything became fine. Both husband and wife started living their life happily. Casually talking they told Kokila that their children don’t study well. They’ve failed in examinations. Kokila told them about the importance of Sai Baba Vrat to get 9 Thursdays and said that by worshipping Sai Baba their children would have the ability to research well. But for that, you should have profound faith in Sai Baba. She explained the procedure for the Vrat which is as follows:

  • This Vrat may be done by eating fruits or by taking lunch or dinner. (Eating just once in a day).
  • If possible go to Sai Baba temple for many 9 Thursdays.
  • Any woman, man, or child can do this Vrat. Worship of Sai Baba photograph ought to be done for 9 Thursday.
  • Offer blossoms, light incense sticks, and blossoms, chant Aarti recall Sai Baba’s title, and distribute Prasad.
  • On the 9th Thursday feed poor people to conclude the Vrat.

After a few days, Kokila received a letter from her brother-in-law’s wife that her children do Sai Vrat and have started studying hard. She did Sai Baba Vrat and distributed the novels in her husband’s office. Moreover, her neighbor’s decoration box was lost somewhere. As a consequence of Sai Baba Vrat, someone came and returned the box after two weeks. In this way, such miracles happened.

Now Kokila came to know that Sai Baba is omnipotent and powerful in the universe.

Here is one Devotee Experience of Doing Sai Nav Guruwar Vrat.

Please forgive any unforeseeable mistakes, since this is my first time doing so. I currently reside in Canada and also have been in touch with Baba for about four years now. Day by day, and experience by experience, my faith strengthens. As promised, I would like to share a couple of my experiences, rather miracles, having observed the Sai Nav Guruvar Vrat. I am in my early twenties and recently have faced many tough times in terms of my studies, finances, private life, etc.. It appeared as if everything seemed to have dropped down at once, and I hit rock bottom. I am very worried about my potential, career-wise and otherwise. Having had faith, I was inspired to watch the Sai Nav Guruvar Vrat by reading different experiences and Sai Baba stories, and reading several different experiences of devotees, especially those observing the Sai Nav Vrat. There are lots of miracles of myself to describe. I don’t have any idea where to begin and where to end if I can. At this point, I am simply putting my hope on Baba, also writing as it comes to my mind. I feel very little and with great humility even ashamed at times that what good have I done to receive Baba’s guidance and blessings? With so many mistakes that I have created, even broken promises to Baba, I still sense His blessings. I just want to take this chance and say Thank You Baba for everything. I know the whole world can turn away from me, but You will always be there. Thank You for everything, words are too short to describe. It makes me want to be a much better man, and I need Your guidance to become nearer to You.

In terms of my experience(s), Having gone through already a rough time i.e. downturn in studies, losing my career path, accumulating student debts, and on top of that financial scam which I got, I had been facing turmoil in my life. It felt as if nothing was going right. I am highly career-minded, and studies are very important for me and my family. But somehow, with faults of my own, I just couldn’t manage the strain, and burden of expectations. I began losing myself, and ultimately everything around me fell apart. It was a combination of several things going on at once that gave me every reason to get rid of hope in life. But, what really motivated me to observe that the Sai Nav Guruvar Vrat was my attachment to someone I couldn’t understand. I felt greatly hurt by someone who had no intention of hurting me. But somehow his actions and things around me associated with him appeared to get to me personally. I felt as if I was being lied to and reality was bigger than I could imagine. I tried my best to remain off and mind my own business like I always do, nevertheless, my thoughts seemed to have centered around that one individual with all these doubts and questions in my mind. I felt like hating him, but could not. I didn’t know what went inside my mind, and why I looked to have taken everything so seriously. Highly disturbed by a few of his actions, and also that which I think were lies, I detected that the Sai Vrat. Despite everything else that has been going on, my main intention seemed to have been this. I wished to understand his reality. I wanted answers to a number of my doubts.

Without getting into so much detail, I would only like to mention miracles and wonders that have happened since I discovered this Vrat. It was my first time. And I tried to do as I can. It took me more than double the time to complete the Vrat because I skipped several Thursdays in between. I began sometime back in February 2014, however, I made many mistakes in between. I had especially stopped doing it since the financial scam that I endured. But, I started again in May and recently completed it. All I can say is that if your intentions are pure, and your conscience internally is clear, (though I do not think mine was or ever will be as clean as it should be), Baba will help you. I used to see His 11 assurances and gain peace of mind. At times I felt like I only remembered Him in my bad times because that is when I started reading experiences, Sai Satcharitra, etc. However, I am and always will be forever grateful to Baba for coming into my life and making me His daughter.

In terms of the concluding experience, it was surrounded by some very wrong impressions of that person that I wanted answers to. I wanted to understand his reality. I had it in my mind that if I get to know the truth about this person it ought to be on a Thursday and that is just what occurred this September. Lots of my misunderstandings were cleared automatically due to Baba’s miracle. I became closer to that person than I had been ever before. I desired him to tell me the facts about his life on his own without being asked, which happened on its own, on a Thursday! This was beyond my imagination, and nothing less than a miracle. I told Baba many times in my heart that if he was the wrong type of individual, then it should unfold in front of me. Or if there is a different reality that surrounds him, please let it unfold without me having to ask. I felt too attached, although I tried my best to stay away because his reputation regarding personality was not that great. Who am I to say, but it used to hurt me personally for a reason when I heard wrong things about him. But I was wrong in many ways, and Baba helped me see this. Things did unfold in front of me, and my incorrect impression was cleared, at least most of it.

On the concluding day of the Vrat, I went to the Mandir to execute all due formalities, and while prostrating in front of Baba, I watched a Ladoo on my side which brought an idea to my mind that what if Pandit Ji requested me to possess this. I never believed it would occur, because Prasad’s table was on the opposite end and Prasad was not running out there. These lads were put especially around Baba. As Pandit Ji handed me over candies from the table, I started eating them and thought “Until I finish this one, could he ask me for a different one?” To my surprise, just before my last bite of those candies, Pandit Ji himself told my mother “Yeh Ladoos especially India Se Aaye Hai, Require More (All these Ladoos have come specially from India)” He handed them to my mother, to which she said, to give to me with his very own hands. I was stunned!! Maybe you have to be there and experience your ideas being read to realize how overwhelming this situation could be. Words aren’t sufficient to describe every feeling at times. I was more than pleased to know that Baba read my ideas.

Last Thursday on Diwali, I had a dream of Baba’s Idol wrapped in a red cloth. I attempt to visit a temple on Thursdays and at times I bring a little scarf to put around His Idol. I thought to myself of bringing something red according to my fantasy. However, I could only get orange, which I presumed was near enough. When I moved to the temple and saw Baba, He was already wearing Red. I was more than happy. My orange scarf complimented His outfit perfectly. I was pleased to get these hints and indications out of Baba, which tells me he is there regardless of what. Last Thursday, on Diwali there was to be a solar eclipse, during which we are not allowed to touch the Idols. Baba gave me just enough time to finish my Darshan before Pandit Ji announced the start of the eclipse. Once again I was thrilled because I had been running late, but made it just in time for this announcement. Baba, I love You tremendously, and it’s sufficient to know You will always be there to hold my hands during good times and bad, happy or depressed. I could relate to the story that Baba holding your hands is much better than you holding His because during trial times you’ll be able to leave His hand, but He will Never abandon yours. Despite my many mistakes, sins, and problems, when I don’t have any reason to live, thank you for giving me hope. Please always be that, for everyone, and assist us all on the right path. Om Sai Ram. Realizing that no matter how low things get, I still should be very happy with what I have, I tried to keep moving forward.

Om Samarda Sadguru Sainath Maharaj ki Jai!!!.
