Education Week is an annual event observed in August by the SSIO with an emphasis on the Sai Spiritual Education program (SSE) encompassing the principles and aspects of education that Sathya Sai Baba taught for spiritual and social uplift and development. There is a primary focus on the human values of Peace, Truth, Right Conduct, Non-violence and especially Love, which are values enshrined in all the major religions.
One approach He promoted was Educare, a system in which the inherent values that are recognised as being an integral aspect of humanness and only need the right motivations to shine forth. Whilst COVID 19 restrictions are in force, this week will be celebrated with an online program.
“Spiritual Education which influences the heart is Educare. Educare brings out the latent Divinity of man to establish it as an ideal to the whole world. Modern Education ends merely with bookish knowledge. It is confined to what is contained in books. Educare, however, is not limited to the study of books. It is related to the source of all knowledge that is latent in the heart of all beings. This is the type of Education which is our prime necessity today. People are pursuing higher studies in the various fields of secular education. This is not enough. They have also to pursue spiritual education which inculcates values like truth, righteousness, peace, love etc. and brings about their transformation.”
Sathya Sai Baba, Sanathana Sarathi March 2003.
