Om Sai ram to all the devotees. Baba always makes us feel his presence when we need him the most. I feel extremely blessed as I share my experience amongst fellow devotees of baba.
In the month of April’2021, my family and I were tested positive for Covid. First my mother had symptoms and we thought maybe she’s having fever because of the change in weather or possibly because she had kept the air conditioner on last night. Gradually, my father too started having symptoms and so did my siblings and I. We consulted with our family doctor who immediately asked us to get our covid test done. By the time the test results came positive, my mother was a lot better, the rest of us i.e., my father, sister, brother and I had symptoms. That too was fine within a couple of days. However, my father had fever for 10 days with sore throat, body ache and chest congestion. Due to extreme weakness, he fainted too. In between those 10 days, his oxygen was at 89 but with breathing exercises it increased to 94.
Fellow devotees, in those 10 days of his fever my mother and I were at wits end. We kept baba’s Shri Sai Satcharita and Stavan Manjari next to his bedside table. Would give him medicines with udi water.
Multiple times in a day, I would check on Sai baba question and answer site and every time baba would show encouraging replies. In one of the answers, it said that you will start seeing benefits from Sunday and it yes from that Sunday onwards my father stopped having fever. Just little weakness and cough. All this while, I prayed hard to baba for his protection and grace, would read books dedicated to baba’s miracles by Vinny Chitluri Ji which gave me a lot of hope, courage and confidence and watch videos on Nikhil’s YouTube channel “Sai baba’s devotees speaks” of Pawar kaka and Aai.
During that time, for at least 3 days monkeys would visit my backyard and peek into the kitchen for food and I felt as if baba had come to take away the disease from my home. I don’t know why, but whenever those monkeys visited, I felt hopeful and positive thinking yes baba is there taking care of us. When the fever was there, our doctor recommended my father getting some tests and with baba’s infinite grace and blessings the reports for that were normal too.
When we were unwell, my mother started writing baba’s name on paper and when I asked her how all of a sudden, you’re writing this she would say I really don’t know neither did I plan to write this. I guess, it’s baba’s order and we have to comply by it. Writing his name only encourages chanting it more. It’s been a month and my mom still writes baba’s name on paper praying for everyone’s wellbeing.
Today, only because of baba’s love and blessings we are covid negative and a lot better. I don’t know how can I ever thank baba for his love and grace.
My only request to all the devotees is to chant his name more, remember him more and pray to him for the world’s wellbeing. OM SAI RAM.
