Thought of mentioning one of my experience from the Sai temple visit.
I started visiting Sai temple on every thursday without fail,the temple I visit has a place where ever burning dhuni is maintained.The place where it is burned is always locked and the authorities open it to place cut wooden pieces whenever it is required.The place to stock the storage is right opposite to the dhuni only.
On one of the thursday's I took a twig out of the wooden log that was kept in the storage to put it as an offering in the dhuni.While I was trying to put it through the holes of the closed door,the twig fell on the ground and I felt disheartened thinking as its fallen on the ground hence it is not right to put it as an offering.I consoled myself thinking that might be Baba doesn't want my offering.
The next day (Friday) morning I was getting an urge to go to this temple,it was unusual as I only go there on thursdays.I decided I will finally go as there might be a reason for that thinking to arise.I was going to offer my prayers to dhuni & as pujari had come with the offerings for dhuni I stood outside waiting for him to finish his puja.It was the time for dhuni puja,though dhuni puja time was mentioned as 11:15 but the priest had come to perform it at 11:40.Only one lady was near to the priest and to my surprise the priest asked me to come in.Before offering the coconut & rice in dhuni the priest made us touch it,later on he marked my forehead from the udi taken from the dhuni.
I felt so blessed,it was like baba knew what my wish was and next day he had just called me to give that privilege and make me feel special by granting that wish of mine.I just felt it wasn't the priest but baba who marked my forehead with the udi & on the same day that shirdi trip accompany sends me the video "jaisa bhaav taisa anubhav" 🙂
Here is the picture of that dhuni from that temple.
