Education is intended for the transformation of the heart. It should be welcomed as a Spiritual Practice for the establishment of Peace in the individual heart as well as in society. It must award self-confidence, the courage to depend on one’s own strength. Education must open the eyes and enable them to recognize the one behind the many. It should be utilized for developing the power of discrimination between right and wrong, good and evil. Education must aim at providing the child, not livelihood, but a life worth living.
“Education has two important characteristics. One is exposition of facts relating to any subject. The other is the unfolding of the individual's personality. The first is concerned with matter. The second is with divine energy. Education is a combination of the two. It is a combination of worldly and spiritual knowledge. Education cannot be confined to stuffing the head. It has to melt the heart, refine it and turn it towards God. Man has to be transformed into an ideal human being with a compassionate heart. Every effort should be made to utilize education for the purpose of divinizing man.”
Welcome to the Education Wing!
Education, or Sai Spiritual Education, is one of the three wings of the Sai Organization (the other two being Spiritual and Service). It is sometimes called Education in Human Values, the primary values being divine love, truth, peace, duty (dharma), and non-violence.
