Children Sathya Sai Spiritual Education

Sathya Sai Baba initiated the Spiritual Education Program (Sai Spiritual Education, formerly known as bal vikas) to facilitate the spiritual growth of children in the ages 6 through 16 who attend the Sathya Sai Baba Centers. This program is designed to teach the children five basic human values (Love, Truth, Peace, Right Conduct ,and Nonviolence), basic teachings of world's religions, and spiritual lessons based on Sathya Sai Baba's writings. Teachers receive training as set forth by Sathya Sai Baba.

"From the most impressionable years the children should be taught to cultivate love for all. Love leads to unity. Unity promotes purity. Purity leads to Divinity."

"To instill in the minds of the young the values of prayer, humility, and loving service to others, the homes where they have grown should be the first schools. The parents have to be imbued with faith in the basic truths of this Universal Religion."

"Children's minds are innocent and pure. Each child is like a white marble for the teacher and the parents to sculpt the image of God, a bud to be helped to blossom in all its Divine glory so that it becomes a worthy offering to God."

Currently, there are three age groups in the Sai Spiritual Education Program: Group I (ages 6-9), Group II (ages 10-12), and Group III (ages 13-16). The teaching techniques and lesson plans are targeted to suit the age of each group. Anyone interested in enrolling children in the Sai Spiritual Education is requested to contact the education coordinator.

The children spiritual education activities for the Sathya Sai Center of Austin take place on Fridays, from 7:15 pm - 8:15 pm - please see: Sathya Sai Center of Austin - Weekly Sai Center Schedule
