A Sai Devotee who doesn't wish to be named has sent us this real life story of Baba's kindness.
My father was tested covid positive and we got him admitted to the hospital as he was a senior citizen. This happened on Aug 15th 2020. The very next day corporation wanted rest of the family members to get the test done. My 80 year old aunt was tested positive and we admitted her too in the same hospital. My mother and brother were tested negative and they took swab test again for them and were asked to wait for the results which takes at least 4-5 days.
When I heard first about my father's report was shattered and opened the Satcharita (18 & 19) and here was his answer in bold "Saburi (Patience or perseverance) is the other pice. I waited patiently and very long on My Guru and served him.
This Saburi will ferry you across the sea of this mundane existence. Saburi is manliness in man, it removes all sins and afflictions, gets rid of calamities in various ways, and casts aside all fear, and ultimately gives you success. Saburi is the mine of virtues, consort of good thought. Nishtha (Faith) and Saburi (Patience) are like twin sisters, loving each other very intimately."
I stay just 5kms away from my parents place but could not visit them during this time. I was all worried because all the three elders at him were co-morbid. Everyone at home applied Udi and also drank water with Udi mixed in it. We had sent Udi packet along with father and aunt to the hospital. I started reading Satcharitra and all my Sai Bandhu's started with the group prayers for them. The next day mother got a call from a lady who is not known to anyone of us.
Neither any of my friends had my mother's number. She started saying Sai Ram and she mentioned my father's name and aunt's name that they are in hospital and nothing can harm them. The lady mentioned that she is from Shirdi Sai Samiti and is praying for everyone's welfare. Mom was in tears when she heard all this. It was like Baba himself speaking. Mom told her and my brother's wait for the results. The lady said not to worry everything will be fine.
Then through another Sai source got a message from Baba that father and aunt will be fine in next couple of days and the results will come negative for mother and brother. Yes this was true, Father and aunt were discharged within a week and were back home. But had to be in home isolation for next 14 days. Mother and Brother never received any call from the corporation its now 21 days.
Father and aunt completed the isolation and aunt also returned to her Kids safe. With Baba's grace both of them are doing good. What more to say about his sheer leela. He will never let his children down. All he needs is love and trust and rest he will take care. He sometimes puts us to test but he will definitely never let us drain in the water. He will carry us. This shows Baba is always with us and he never will leave us.
Om Sai Ram. Loka Samastha Sukhino Bhavantu
