Respected Manisha ji,
First of all I would like to express my gratitude and thanks for informing all sai bhaktas about the Sai Baba temple at Shibpur , Nadia , West Bengal.
I would like to describe my experience about my visit to Sai Baba temple at Shibpur.
I stayed in different parts of the country. When I was in Pune I used to visit Shirdi regularly. Then I shifted to Bangalore and by Sai Baba’s grace there was a beautiful Sai Baba temple near my who where I used to go frequently.
After coming to Calcutta I was missing Sai Baba’s temple very much. Months passed but I could not find a Sai Baba temple nearby where I can go , sit and meditate of Baba.
I was very depressed. I was passing through an acute financial trouble and prayed to
Sainath to remove all my obstacles. Nothing was happening. I was getting frustrated and depressed day by day. Then I was remembering the words of Sai that those who step into my temple at Shirdi will get rid of all problems. Since I did not have the resource to go to Shirdi I requested my sister who stays in Mumbai to visit Shirdi and offer puja and prayer to Baba on my behalf. But due to certain circumstances she was unable to go to Shirdi. On hearing this I was more depressed.
I cried before Sai Baba, prayed to him and developed an intense desire to meet Baba and ask for forgiveness for all the sins I have committed during this birth and previous births. I wanted to ask Baba why I am suffering so much when I have taken refuge in Baba.
The next morning I was browsing and suddenly I saw you article in your blog of Sai Baba Temple of Shibpur in Nadia district of West Bengal.
I sat there spell bound reading that article. I immediately understood that Sai Baba has listened to my innermost desire and guiding me to visit this temple. I immediately started off for Nadia by train. I had no idea where Shibpur is and how to reach there. I later realized that it is quite far from home. Before starting off I silently prayed to Baba that if you have the wish to let me visit you temple please make all the arrangements so that I can see you at Shibpur and return back home by night. I called up Amit Biswas who is the President of Sai Baba Sansthan at Shibpur. He told me to come to Krisnnanagar by train and after reaching Krishnanagar call him up. I did the same.
He came running and made all the arrangements to take me to Shibpur. He even paid the bus fare and all the other expenditures. I reached Shibpur by evening. It was such a pleasant journey through the rural areas of Nadia. We crossed the river Ganges and then reached Shibpur. After some time I came across the Sai Baba temle of Shibpur.
As soon as I entered the temple and looked upon Sai Baba and HIS eyes tears rolled out from my eyes.
Oh Baba! Where were you? I asked him. I bent down, did sashtaanga pranam and sat quietly before baba. I was feeling utmost joy and happiness in from of Baba. I forgot all my worries. I prayed to him to remove all my financial problems and bring peace in my family. I was feeling as I if I have come across the same old temple of Shirdi where Baba lived. There were few bhaktas of Baba. They were village people, very poor but rich in devotion to baba. I was overwhelmed seeing their devotion and bhakti towards baba. They do not get two square meals a day but never forgets to offer. Baba his naividya. Every they performa Baba’s puja and arati in the morning, noon, evening and night.
They have nothing materialistic to ask from Baba. They only want Baba to be with them and bless them.
Amit’s father showed me the Neem tree which came up on its own. Then he showed me the place- the old temple 100 years ago where Amit’s great grandfather used to worship Sai Baba. I was overwhelmed and got a feeling that Sai Baba is residing here in full form. Amit father and his family members were very hospitable. They offered me food and then the villager’s escorted me back to Krishnanagar station from where I could catch the train back to Calcutta.
Now Baba’s leela – As soon as I left Baba’s temple and have gone few kilometers away I got a phone call from my office. I am into IT sector and people go onsite for delivering projects for different clients. I never had the intension to go abroad. But Baba has different ideas. I go a call from my boss that suddenly there has been an opening and they want to send me to France.
He told me that the client would interview me on Tuesday and if they like me I have to set off for France for long time, 3-5 years. Baba has listened to my prayers because he knows that I am passing through a financial crisis and then if I go abroad I can earn good money and all my financial worries will go away soon.
On Tuesday I was bit tensed. I knew that the interview will be tough and I am not prepared. Still I prayed to Sainath and told him that if this is his wish then I will do well in the interview. I prayed to him to be by my side, appear on my lips and utter from my mouth the correct answer which will satisfy the interviewers. I was surprised that at the time of interview suddenly I started feeling very confident.
The answers which came out from my mouth were splendid, as if I am not speaking some one else is answering on my behalf. Finally today evening I got a confirmation mail from the customer that they have selected me for the job and I have to fly to France at the earliest.
I thank Saibaba for all he is doing for me.
I would request to all the people to visit Shibpur and have a darshan of Sai Baba. If people go to Shibpur Sai Baba mandir with true devotion and pray before Sai baba all their problems will get over and wishes fulfilled.
I would request to publish this mail in your website so that more and more people know about this Sai Baba temple of Shibpur and take darshan of Sai Baba.
Om Sai Ram.
