Dear Sai Devotees,
As I was reading chapter 32 from "Shri Sai Satcharitra" today, I remembered one of my experience and would like to share it with you. In Oct 2018, on Baba's Mahasamadhi day, me, my husband and my son attended Baba's sej aarti in a temple nearby. There were lot of people in temple and my son wanted to go out quickly. Anyhow, I have managed to keep him inside the temple during aarti. When aarti was over every one went out . Mahaprasad was distributed outside. We were in so much rush because of my son that we did not want to take the Prasad. A lady has offered me an empty plate to take the Prasad but I have refused it. That time I was not aware that we should never refused to take Prasad. We went home after that. From that evening, I have suffered from severe throat pain. I could not even eat anything, not even drink milk. Almost one week, my condition stays the same. I have lost almost 6kg of weight. I didn't realise instantly but later I felt that this happened only because of my refusal of taking Prasad. After a week, on Thursday when I have opened my front door of the house,I found a plastic bag. When I checked inside it was full of apples and plums. I don't know where it came from and who has kept it there. There is no possibility of my neighbour dropping the bag there. I still could not find out who was it! But yes, I firmly believe that it was my Baba's leela. He gave me punishment first, but His love for His devotees is immense, like a mothers love. And for that He showed me this leela.
Dear friends, in chapter 32 it's clearly states that, Do not discard offers of food. It should be regarded as sign of success. Baba has accepted offering of food from a poor vanjari and He found His guru, while the other three of His companion discarded his offer. And they just wandered in the woods without getting anything.
Sometimes, we read the scriptures but do not grasp the real meaning in our life. But our Baba, our guru is always guide us on the right path. Have true faith in Sai and try to apply His teaching in life.
Bow to Shri Sai, peace be to all! 🙏
