Miracle of Sai Baba and Chand Bhai’s Horse
‘Dhoopkhede’ a small village in Aurangabad district, in Maharashtra in which there lived a man named Chand bhai who was the Patel of that village. One fine day he lost his horse. Chand bhai looked and searched for his horse everywhere in the village. Chand bhai looked for his horse almost 14 Koss (42km almost) but was disappointed as he couldn’t find his horse. While wandering around he came across a fakir who was sitting under a mango tree, The fakir had a cap on his head, who was wearing a ‘Kafni’ (long robe) and had a ‘Satka’ (short stick). The Fakir asked Chand bhai about the saddle he was holding in his hand. Chand bhai replied sadly that it was of his horse which is lost. The Fakir asked worried Chand bhai to search for his lost horse near the Nala close by. He went there and the wonder of wonders! He actually found his horse. Chand bhai was overwhelmed and he thought this fakir was not any ordinary man, but a Holy saint. He requested the fakir to come to his home and accept his hospitality. After some days there was a marriage ceremony in Chand bhai’s house; the marriage procession happened in Shirdi. The fakir also accompanied the marriage ceremony. When the marriage procession came to Shirdi, it arrived at a Banyan tree in Bhagat Mhalsapati’s field near Khandoba’s temple. Bhagat Mhalsapati saw the Fakir getting down and said to Him “YA SAI” (Welcome Sai). Listening to that others also started addressing the fakir as Sai and hence-forth he became known as “Sai Baba”.
Miracle of Sai Baba Lighting lamps (diya) with water
Sai Baba was always fond of lighting lamps (diyas) in the Masjid and other Temples. But the oil used to light those lamps were given by the shopkeepers of Shirdi out of generosity. He had made it a daily ritual to light earthenware lamps in the masjid every evening and he would call on the grocers for small donations. Suddenly there was a day when the grocers got fed up of giving free oil to Sai Baba and they refused to oblige him, saying they had no fresh stocks. Sai Baba returned to the masjid empty handed. Sai poured water into the lamps instead of oil and lighted the wicks. Surprisingly the lamp continued to burn throughout the whole night. The grocers came to know about this incident and went to visit Sai baba to ask for an apology. Sai Baba pardoned them, but he warned them to not lie again. This is one of the exceptional miracles of Sai Baba.
