SATHYA SAI SPEAKS ON EDUCATION by Compilation of The Teaching of Sathya Sai Baba On Education
Sathya Sai Baba always emphasizes the teacher as exemplar, and no matter our profession, we all are teachers demonstrating our beliefs constantly through our thoughts, words, and actions. Parents are also teachers. So, for those wishing to embody Sai’s teachings, as exemplars, this book is an invaluable manual for in-depth understanding of Swami’s teachings on ideal education. “Sathya Sai Speaks on Education” is a substantial book, designed as a reference or study guide, pulling together a multitude of pearl-like passages from Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s discourses, that shed light on various aspects of education. Over one thousand quotes have been collected and compiled under numerous topic headings. Main topics in the collection include The Teacher’s Role, Fundamental Features, Specific Virtues to Be Developed, Curriculum, Service, Policy Characteristics of Sathya Sai Education, and Reform of Modern Education and Society. Each main topic has numerous subtopics/spiritual principles, all with related quotes. For example, The Five Human Values section under Fundamental Features contains over 25 passages that bring out the importance of the five human values in education. In this way, almost like an essay, the garland of quotes under each topic builds and reinforces one’s understanding of the principle.
