ઓક્ટોબર ૨૦૧૨માં એક દિવસ એક ઈમેઈલ આવ્યો.
એમાં ઈંગલેન્ડમાં થયેલા એક “ચમત્કાર”ની ઘટના હતી.
એ ઘટનામાં જલારામ બાપા હતા.
એક સાંઈબાબા ભક્ત “વડગમા” ને બાપાએ સ્વપ્નમાં દર્શ દીધા.
એમના “અન્ન સેવા”ના કાર્ય માટે સહાય કરી તેનું વર્ણન છે.
જેને જે પ્રમાણે ભાવ તે પ્રમાણે માને કે ના માને…એની ચીન્તા નથી.
આ ઘટનાનો વાંચકોને પુરો ખ્યાલ આવે એવા જ હેતુથી અહી એ “ઈમેઈલ” નીચે પ્રગટ કરૂં છું>>>
Jai Shri Jalaram Bapa
Story of a Miracle
“Day of Judgment”
We all know that this is the time of Kalyug. Bapa is closer to us than we realize……….
may refer to:
Kali Yuga, the “Age of Vice”, is the forth stage of the world development that we are currently in.
As the corruption gradually developed wider in the earlier stages. This stage is the climax stage when
the world finally meets a judgment day at the end of it as said in Hindu Scriptures. It’s not known
when the end comes, but it’s believed that we still have a long way to go.
These days when miracles happen, it is god’s way to remind us that it’s not too late to follow the true
path set by him. Following it will surely bring you soul closer to him. Remember there is the “Day of
Well this is to prove that miracles are happening everyday and to make you are aware of them. Two
events/miracles that took place in Queensbury, London that needs to be noted and explored.
A little background information so that you can follow these events.
Mr.Vadagama is a resident of Queensbury and a Satya Sai Baba devotee. With the help of other
devotees, he has been serving food to the homeless citizens in the West End of London, every Monday
for the past 17 years. He refers to this as “Naryan Seva”.
This summer, the Jalaram Mandir of Greenford and devotees have been generous enough to support
this cause and provide hot food for the homeless.
This is the path Jalaram Bapa followed all his life and now for his disciples to follow the footsteps.
Jalaram bapa was interested in serving sadhus, poor and needy people right from the beginning of his
Jalarambapa’s path for you to him
On Monday, July 31, 2012, the devotees were preparing packaging to go out on Naryan Seva, a lady
showed up at Vadgama’s business, “Bonsai Plastic & Party Store” in Queensbury. She had brought
some food to donate such as bananas, packets of biscuits and cartons of drinks.
“Jala Bapa had come in my dreams last night and asked me to help by donating these
She was not aware of this Narayan Seva. After witnessing the preparations and the packaging
of the food, her eyes were full of tears. She realized that her dream was
true. It was a proof that Bapa
was guiding her. These were some of the food items missing for that day. Remember, all food is
donated and sometimes certain items are short or missing. It’s just pot luck.
On Friday evening, August 3, 2012, Vadagama was preparing for his trip to Sardinia. He performs a
prayer known as “Laksha Charan”. This is where he chants the Lord’s name a 100,000 times. He was
making preparations for the coming Monday’s Narayan Seva. He noticed that they were low on items
such as drinks and cookies. He made a mental note some time during the day to step out and purchase
That afternoon, his secretary called saying
“An old man is here and needs help. He has brought
food for the Narayan Seva
.” Vadgama went out to help and saw an old man standing who had come
in a blue car, dressed in white Khthwadi jabba and tight pants, a white turban and beads around his
Jai Jai Jai Shree Jalaram
Bapa’s mantra “Sita Ram, Sita Ram”
Vadgama had not seen this person before and did not recognize him. As he was unloading the trunk,
the gentleman spoke in Gujarati,
“I am very pleased, very pleased with your seva, feeding the
hungry. My devotees will certainly help you in this seva.”
Vadgama could not comprehend what he
was saying. He just picked up the packages of cookies and the drinks and said to the gentlemen,
me take these items inside and I will be back for the bananas and then we can go inside my office
On his return, the old man had disappeared leaving the box of bananas on the steps.
Vadgama looked around and there was no sign of the blue car or the old man.
Vadgama went into the office telling his staff that the old man who had brought all these items had just
left without a word. He even continued to comment on the man’s dressing. Vadgama wondered if the
man had just come from India. He said,
“Who would give this old man a driving license and why
was he dressed so strangely in London?”
Other workers just agreed with the strangeness of the
event that had just taken place.
A day later Vadagama was speaking to a devotee in California about Narayan Seva. He mentioned this
odd event and described this man who seemed to be from India. An old man wearing an all white
Indian outfit, a white turban and the holy beads around his neck. This old man was assuring, “
devotees will help in this seva.”
On further examination of what he had said regarding his devotees, it seemed unusual for an ordinary
person to refer to the devotees as ‘my devotees’. It was then everyone realized that this was Bapa
A perfect opportunity to meet Bapa in person had past.
This news was conveyed to Rajnibhai Khiroya, President of the Jalaram Mandir of Greenford.
Rajnibhai & Rajani uncle went to “Bonsai Plastic & Party Store” to verify the story and to hear first
hand eyewitness accounting of the event. They took notes and pictures of the food in the storage.
Rajnibhai took permission to take some packets of biscuits to the Jalaram Mandir as “Prasad”.
Soon after they locked the store and proceed to the scheduled Narayan Seva.
“Monday Evening Narayan Seva”
Volunteers are handing out prepackaged food.
No picture of the homeless due to privacy issues.
Vadagama went home to bed that night and during the night, he had a dream. In his dream, the same
old man, Jala Bapa, who had come to drop off the food appeared. Bapa told Vadagama that since he
had permitted biscuits to be taken to the Mandir as “Prasad”, he was going to replace the biscuits with
some more. Bapa also said in Gujarati, “This ‘Bhandar’ (English= Store) will never be empty.” He
informed Vadgama that Jalaram Bapa and Sai Baba were one and the same entity.
સૌને નમસ્તે સહીત જય જલારામ !

This Post talks of a Miracle in England.
It talks of one person’s devotion to Sai Baba & the Faith.
It talks of the Service to the Poor & Needy & the Food Donation.
Then the DREAM….and the the DARSHAN of Jalaram Bapa.
And, the assistance to the Devotee Vadgama in a miraculous manner.
Those with the strong FAITH will believe it & “Praise the God invoking the name of Jala Bapa”& to the non-believer this may be a HOAX.
My point of publishing this is to lead the Mankind to the “Path of BHAKTI (Devotion to God)”.
It is not necessary to see GOD only in Jalaram.One can have see the “DIVINE” as he/she is comfortable. One can even see Jalaram as the GURU & march towards the DIVINE.
Hope you like this Post.
