Om Sai Ram.
This incident was shared to me by my Dad. He says this one miracle has entirely changed his perspective about Baba and till date gets overwhelmed whenever he talks about it.
Few years back I'm not exactly sure maybe when I was in highschool around 6-7 years back,we were not sure of who Sai Baba was. It was my Mum who had introduced us to Him.
So,it was my parents' wedding anniversary and mom wanted to go to Baba's temple to take His Blessings.
She took my Dad along and he went with her reluctantly not quite sure of why Mom wants to go visit Him. Dad said "While Mum was praying, I stood there without a purpose and was waiting to go back home".
The temple that they had visited roughly takes around an hour from our house and my parents had travelled in a motorbike. So,once my Mum had taken Baba's blessings and they left from there back home.
Few minutes after they had left,the bike stopped out of nowhere in the middle of that deserted place.It was getting dark around 6-6:30 pm and they could not see anyone in plain hindsight. My dad had no clue of what to do next . They were stranded and just when my Dad was thinking that he was helpless, he saw a man in a motorcycle come towards them. He said, that man had hen cages tied to his backseat. So,my Dad had assumed he's a vendor of some kind. In my Dad's words "He came and asked us what went wrong,then removed his tools box from his cycle, dismantled the tyre, took it with him repaired and came back and fixed it". And,finally he said you can go now. My Dad was totally speechless and when he tried to offer him some money for the extremely good deed,he politely declined and before my dad could say thank you he vanished into thin air.
With all this in mind when they were traveling back home he saw a vehicle go infront of him with Baba's picture on it. My dad says that was the day when he started believing that there's someone Divine guiding us and protecting us. He says if that Man was not Baba who else can it be. In this cold world and in the middle of nowhere, someone comes and helps you and wants nothing in return, who else can it be if not for the Baba Himself?
Dad went there reluctantly,but Baba proved it otherwise. He came back with nothing but immense devotion for Baba.
This was the very first miracle that happened to him. I will share many more in the coming posts.
