Baba came and showed the way to His Home
We are happy to present a miracle related to Shirdi Sai Gurusthan Mandir, Coimbatore. It happened on 05th October 2016 at 10:30 p.m. and two of our trustees directly experienced this event.
As we know that Baba’s Mandir construction was started on 10th March 2016 and Baba appeared on Deepaarati jyoti during pooja for starting mandir construction. Subsequent to that miracle, this miracle happened to confirm our faith on Baba and He is with us and helping us always.
The trustees decided to celebrate Baba’s 98th Mahasamadhi Punya Thithi Pooja on 11th October 2016. During that pooja it was decided to conduct pooja for new panchaloga Utsav Moorti’s first abhiseka pooja. The Moorti was ordered and sculpt by renowned craftsmen who are in this field for 6 decades at Kumbakonam, a place famous for making all south Indian traditional temple related idols and all jobs related to temples.
When we got the message that Baba Utsav Moorti was ready, the trustees traveled from Coimbatore to Kumbakonam and reached the supplier at 1.30 p.m. We were totally satisfied with Baba’s panchaloga idol which was perfect in all aspects, this could be possible only with the help of Baba during the process. (We remembered the history of sculpting Shirdi Sai Moorti at Samadhi Mandir, Shri Balaji Vasant Talim’s grandson Shri Rajiv Talim narrated to our trustees that Baba appeared in the form of Light in one morning and his grandfather could see the divine face of Sai Baba and accordingly with Sai Baba’s grace and help, his grandfather made mud clay statue of Baba and based on that model his grandfather completed Italian marble Baba Moorti sculpture work during 1954. When this Baba Moorti reached Shirdi, all close devotees of Baba, who spent their time with Baba, said that Baba Himself came. That much resemblance with that marble Moorti and Shri Baba who living with them before His Maha Samadhi.)
They arranged a special pooja for opening Baba’s Eyes. The formal rituals and poojas were performed by the sthapathi before opening the Eyes. After opening the Eyes by the sthabathi, the trustees performed the pooja and aarati. All who present there experienced a sort of blissful environment during eyes opening, where that environment is blessed to have the First Sight of Baba. From that moment Baba taken the control of all events to come, evidently this miracle is living proof of His Power.
After completion of all rituals and formalities, the trustees carried Baba Utsav Moorti in their car and started their travel to Coimbatore. When they reached near Karur, there was total stoppage of traffic on both sides of the highway and hundreds of vehicles stranded on the road on all lanes of the road. We stuck in between and could not move either forward or backward. On enquiry there was an accident and a goods carrier lorry rolled over and blocking both directions of the road. It might be a big task to bring ambulance and crane to clear the mess as both sides were covered with hundreds of vehicle. We afraid it may be 8 to 12 hrs long waiting period in dark hours.
We were thinking why this kind of disturbance happened while taking Baba to His Home. Immediately a person came to our car and asked to move our car to few feet. On asking why he wanted our car to move, he told that there is a way on our left side of our car that will take them to bypass road. We moved our car and gave way to that car and we followed that car. That was open land and Google maps couldn’t identify that road. When we touch black top road, that car vanished. Then Google maps started its service and we reached national highway and proceeded to Coimbatore.
In Shri Sai Satcharitra Chapter 33, Baba helped Ramgirbuva to reach Nana Saheb Chandorkar’s house during 1904-05. Similarly Baba helped us by showing unknown path leading to national highway. We safely reached mandir construction site at 12:00 mid night.
As Baba always said, “I will not leave anyone in middle and take them to end”. This statement is true in our experience.
Om Sai Shri Sai Jaya Jaya Sai
