Baba’s Delays are Not His Denials


Once, a devotee of Baba wanted to personally hand over his daughter’s wedding card to Baba. As Baba passed by Him, He hurried away as if He wanted to avoid this man. The man burst into tears and thought it was his bad karma but he did not know about Swami’s love.

After a few days, Baba personally called this man from the crowd and granted him an interview. Baba then explained to the man that when you were trying to give me the card it was “Rahu kaal”. Had i taken the card then it would have been very bad for the girl. You may give it to Me now and all will be well. The man was overjoyed.

On another occasion a girl came to Om Sai Mandir with her father. She wanted to get married but there were some delays. Her father was worried and prayed to Baba. Baba said that according to her destiny she was going to get an abusive husband and so Baba Himself was delaying the marriage. After the time for “fate” passes, He Himself would find her a good husband.

Such are Baba’s ways. He always does what is best for us. We may not understand it in the short term but in the long run all will be well. Have full faith that whatever happens is best for you. Om Sai Mandir – Sai Baba’s Temple in Flushing, Queens, New York (NY)
