Sripada Rajam Saranam Prapadhye.
Sripada devotee sai sriji is sharing an amazing experience with swamy. This experience proves swamy always does best things for us in HIS time.
Digambara Digambara Sripada Vallabha Digambara !
Today, I would like to share with you an experience in my life to highlight Swami's words - “ I will take care of my devotees at all times”. HE makes the right choice for us at the right time.
After working for 10-years, I was without job from April 2008 to October 2009 (except for 6 weeks in between); I was happy in many ways because this gave me a chance to bond with my baby, who was constantly falling sick at the daycare. I didn't have the courage to voluntarily quit my job. Swami made this decision for us - though we don't know him at that time.
To my amazement – Sripada Swami ensured that I received income during every day of this 18-month period. Here is how it went
April '08 -May'08 : 2 months of severance package from company as they closed-down.
June'08 – 3rd week of March'09 : State of CA Unemployment benefits (they pay for 12 months … I think)
Last week of March '09 - Mid-May'09: Received offer as contractor (Believe me - My friend called about this position the moment I completed parayanam of the concise version of Shri GuruCharithra – and kept the book aside;).
Mid-May'09 : Contracting company made a mistake and sent me an extra bi-weekly check. Unemployment benefits have a 2 week waiting period to kick-in.
June'09 – Unemployment benefits resumed at max-amount because I earned qualified income over the last 12-months.
This is just the monetary benefit. More “precious” was my introduction to Sripada Swami during this period & the opportunity to secure & complete the parayanam of Sri Charithamrutham; Within a week of completing the parayanam, I received a call from my dream-company with a position that best matched my core-skills. Also, my baby made a full recovery from health issues; Thankyou Swami.
Swami – Please help keep our mind focused at your feet all times & save us from downfall. This is my true experience to the best of my memory.
