“Education should be useful to society. It should make citizens follow the path of morality and righteousness and make their lives happy.”
Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba
“The End of Education is Character”
The principle Objectives of the Organization as delineated in the Charter are:
Swami says that these objectives can be achieved by engaging in spiritual, educational and service activities both at the individual and the community level, in an organized and systematic manner, without expecting any material reward or appreciation, but solely as a means of winning God’s Love and Grace.
For this purpose He has given guidelines to be followed by the Organization. One such precious guideline is to carry on a holistic education program – Sathya Sai Education.
Swami says that Education is for life and not for living. He also clarifies that today’s academic education, while providing the means for earning a living, it does not provide the means to earn a life filled with love and compassion. The problems seen in the world today are due to the failure of mankind to practice the inherent human values in them. It is essential to remind man that he is innately divine, an embodiment of love and the crown of the creation. Baba has designed Sathya Sai Education for the above purpose and He wants the process to begin from childhood. The Educational program offered through the Organization is based on Educare. The word Educare means to bring out. The Sathya Sai Education strives to bring out the values with which we are born.
Thus the Organization offers the following educational programs for children and adults:
Both programs are designed for children. In these educational programs there are three participants, the child, the teacher and the parent. Without the active participation and contribution by the parent, the program is incomplete. For this, the parents need to practice the values themselves before they compliment and supplement the efforts of the teachers to bring out the values in children.
