    Dear Madam Ms. Meeraghu
    I am very devote of Rayaru because when i was a jobless, i have done 11 Thursday pooja to get a job for me, by blessing of him i got job offer letter in the 7 Thursday in Dubai even i ask for a job in Dubai its a great Miracle in my life,

    Before this miracle happen i want to shear what happened in my life, I was working in Dubai and I get married. After getting married in March 2015 I was planning to take my wife to Dubai and process for Visa, I got the news that the company is to going to be close then I lost my job in Nov 2015, till FEB 2016 I was searching a job everybody got a job who has worked with me in office but i didn’t get it, because during that time for me Shani-Sadi-sati was going on. Then I came back to India.

    I searched job lot someone astrologist say till Aug you not get job pray for Hanuman
    say chalisa everyday, and I do

    During that time lot of people insult me and my wife, even my father said get out from my house, this an just an examples of insulting there are many, it was an a very tough time for us that time we felt to die.

    Then my wife start doing vratha for Banashankri Dev 16 weeks lemon arathi on Tuesday in rahukal time between 10.00AM to 12.00 PM, and I am doing for Rayaru pooja, and my younger sister doing vrata for karya siddhi hanuman of 16 Days producer at Girinagar Bengaluru, Then i got job in Dubai in 8th Aug 2016,

    Now my company gave me 2 Months time to search job in Dubai (Without salary), because company is in under loss.
    On the same day morning Rayaru Photo comes in my Dream, I was happy (because i read others miracle experience saying that rayaru come in dream and blessed me lot of comments) I felt very happy atleast Photo comes in my dream I told to my wife she also happy, but in the same day I got this bad news.

    When I came to Dubai I do pooja every Thursday to rayaru that you saved me, great thankful to you, and 2 times visited to Mantrayala 1st time with my Parent and 2nd time I visited in 3rd May 2018.

    I believed Rayaru, that he not leave me, what ever problems comes sure he will help me to solve in any other ways, I am very prompt, I didn’t hurt and cheat anybody, even those who insult us we didn’t show our arrogant to them (said that time our time was not good so its has happen with us).

    We both of get socket, can’t believe its happening with us again.
    I dont know why rayaru gave 2 years happy only what is my mistake in it. Still i believe in him he will not leave me.
    So I am planning to do pooja very sincerely during 3 days of Aradhana 27th, 28th, 29th Aug 2018. to get job during this limit time. If we go back to India, again it will happen to us .
    please advise me how to do pooja in this 3 days very sincerely

      Sandeep, we all go through tough challenges in life, including me. I know exactly what you and your wife are feeling. However, namma purvajanmada karma kaleyale beku. Rayaru will give us strength, and help us move forwards. But many times I have seen he will not change our destiny. Maybe it is for good, I don’t know, but things which need to happen will happen.
      Don’t loose faith. Keep praying not for job, but for strength, for mental peace, for staying strong.
