The Education Wing of NSW Regions East and West invites all SSE Teachers to a refresher day at Carlingford Girl Guides Hall on Saturday, 6 February, 2016. The theme of the day is His Work is Our Mission.
Sathya Sai Baba has set an example for countless people around the globe, exhibiting the ideals he professed not only in innumerable public speeches and writings, but also concretely, through unprecedented social work and non-stop service activities.
By drawing attention to the great religious heritage of our world, he aimed at fostering a deeper understanding of the common basis and shared values of all religions. This he did for the benefit of all people. He went farther, suggesting that the universal values of truth, righteousness, peace, love and non-violence do not belong to any religion in particular; they are the very life breaths of all human beings, without which life itself would be devoid of meaning, scope and purpose.
Intending a high degree of integrity in which thought, word and deed are unified and aligned with conscience, Sathya Sai Baba:
- highlighted the importance of character – which, in his words, constitutes “the very end of education”;
- emphasised that the teacher must be a personal exemplar of good values.
Sathya Sai Education, (or Educare), has been designed with the awareness that a complete process of education implies the dissemination of knowledge, perfected by human virtue. It places emphasis on the fact that the practice of virtue can be easily prompted and elicited from within each child, when teaching is value-oriented and complemented by a programme that places a ceiling on desires.
“Because of your good fortune, because of your good deeds in previous lives, you are able to participate in the propagation of the human values” ~ ~ Sri Sathya Sai Baba, to SSE Teachers
