OM SAI RAM
OM SAI RAM SAI BHAKT DEEPA JI,
A true real story of SAI CHAMATKARI MURTI (Idol) of SHIRDI SAI BABA to the above right side of this page was aired by Sahara One TV Channel and then by Sony TV Channel titling SHIRDI SAI BABA. The story is of the miracle of my Sai Baba with my family.
Twenty five ago I with my daughter Bobby (Bhavana) who was 5 years then left for Shirdion Thursday at 5 am in our Ambassador car. We reached Shirdi at 2.30 am went to hotel, had bath and left for Sai Samadhi Mandir for 6.30 pm Sai Dhoop Arti. After the Aarti I took my daughter out in the market to buy her some toys which she had asked for. While we were walking behind the street of Samadhi Mandir, she stood next to the shop gazing, refused to move ahead, I asked her what was she looking at. Without any hesitation she said Baa…baa. I was shocked, as she had never uttered that word any time before. I explained her not to buy Sai Murti as it may break on falling, as I knew that the same is made of Plaster of Paris. I showed her Sai Murti made of white metal but she refused to change her mind and sat on the ground crying asking for the same Sai Murti, which she eyed for before. I do not know what she saw in that Sai Murti. What was in that Sai Murtithat she refused to change her mind? I gave up to her and bought the same for Rs.75.
I again took her with the Sai Murti in Sai Samadhi Mandir gave to the Pujari to touch the Samadhi. He put a small garland on the Sai Murti, gave me, and blessed my daughter Bobby. We came out of the Mandir made Bobby to sit with Sai Murti on a small wall and told her that I will be back in a few minutes after calling her mother to tell her about our safe reach. While I was returning, I saw long queue of Sai Devotees facing towards Bobby. She was plucking a flower from the garland of SAI Murti and giving to the Sai Devotee. I stood there little far away watching my daughter, giving the flower to every devotee. There was only one flower left in the garland and while trying to pluck from the garland, flower got entangled with the thread and the Sai Murti fell on the ground on the face. I ran towards her picked the Sai Murti, got deeply hurt to see the nose of Sai Murti broken. I was furious, lost my cool, and beat Bobby very badly. She cried and I went on beating her. I returned to the same shop and bought a similar Sai Murti and asked for both the Sai Murtis be packed separately in two different corrugated boxes to avoid rubbing with each other and breaking. The shopkeeper suggested me not to take a broken (Khandit) murti as it is inauspicious to take home. I replied that I will immerse the Khandit Sai Murti in the Sea and I kept both the boxes on the back seat of my car and very carefully brought it home.
My wife Seema was very anxious to see the SAI MURTI. I narrated the entire episode to her when she asked me about two separate boxes. I opened one Box and saw the Sai Murti left side nose broken. I then opened the other box, was shocked to see the nose of this SAI Murti too was broken from the left side. I lost my mental balance and fell on the sofa with tears flowing from my eyes, wondering, questioning myself. When the other Sai Murti I brought it so safely and did not fall anywhere how come the left side of nose of the other Sai Murti broke both looking the same making it difficult to know as to which Sai Murti got broke by Bobby and which broke after.
I was very depressed, restless, sad, crying, talking to my Sai in my mind as to why He does not want to be in my house. Have I committed any mistake by bringing the first Khandit Murti to my house?
I was trying hard to sleep, but was very restless. At midnight I heard some one calling me MANU……. I saw Sai besides me asking me as to why I beat my daughter mercilessly. My body became numb; I became dumb and had no answer and no courage to open my mouth in front of my Sai. Sai then said, it was he who made the Murti to break in the same position as of the first Murti to see what punishment I give to myself on the breaking of my other Murti. Sai then again said that you worship me daily; you do my Parayandaily, have you understood my preaching in your mind and heart and said I should not repeat again.
Sai said children are like flowers and he loves them, and then ordered me to keep both HIS Murtis in my Mandir as they are preeya to HIM and disappeared.
Next day, my only sister Renu Arjan Shivdasani staunch Sai devotee took one Sai Murti to her house and made Sai to sit in her Mandir. I too did the same. I still have the same Murthi from last 25 years and I worship every day and night. I sometimes in distress ask my Sai the solution to my problems by keeping my chits in front of my Sai and He guides me. I never do anything without asking my Sai. There are many Sai Bhakts telling me to ask Sai of their problems. Every time I have asked Sai, it has come true.
When any one of the family member fractures his any part of his limb, we rush him to the hospital getting him well, bring him home, but if any one of our family member breathes his last he becomes Khandit and only then taken to the crematorium.
Therefore, if any part of Murti of God breaks it does not become Khandit.
Attached please find a large size picture of the Sai Murti without SAI kafni and Patka, but shortly I shall send you the picture of same Murti with Baba wearing Kafni and Patka. This may take some time.
MAY SAI BLESS YOU ALL WITH ALL THE HAPPINESS OF THIS WORLD.
