  Divine Quotations on "Sri Sathya Sai Educare"

"The present system of education aims at making you breadwinners and citizens, but it does not give you the secret of a happy life, namely discrimination between the unreal and the real."
2nd February 1958

"Education is not for mere living, it is for live a fuller, more meaningful, a more worthwhile life. There is no harm if it is for a gainful employment but the education must realise that existence is not all, that gainful employment is not all. What is needed today is that we should live a life of good quality. The fostering of sterling character and good conduct is the need of the world."

"For the entire Creation, God is the seed. Out of this seed, out of God, qualities have originated. The seed grows into a sapling. The various stages of blossoming the sapling, the thorns, the leaves, the flowers and fruits lie in the seed."

"Life starts with Love. The sweetness of love coming out of life is the great and unique principle that is at the source of everything. You can put this love in any field of work."

"The spark that comes out of love is called the Truth. So, man is the form or spark of the divine. This is called conscience. The conscience is always true. The first thing that is to be taught is that everyone is an embodiment of Atma."

"Based on the foundations of truth, the walls of Righteous Conduct (Dharma) are raised. Thus, the same love when expressed in action is called Dharma. When this love is contemplated upon, mind attains supreme Peace. When we adhere to Truth and Righteous Conduct, we can experience the fullness of Peace."

"When we enquire from where this love has come, and understand its very Source, they we realise the great principle of Non-Violence. Love, that is present in everyone is verily the Divine Energy

inherent in all. The under-current that flows through Sathya, Dharma, Santhi and Ahimsa, is Prema only."
13th January 1992

"In the vast cosmos, man is like a speck. Essentially, there is no conflict between man and creation. Just as a child is entitled to enjoy the milk from its mother and the bee is entitled to enjoy honey from flowers, there can be no objection to man enjoying the resources of Nature. But, as a result of uncontrollable desires and reckless exploitation of natural resources, Nature is exhibiting frightening disorders. Natural calamities like earthquakes, volcanic eruptions,droughts and floods are the result of disturbances in the balance of Nature caused by reckless exploitation of natural resources. Mankind today appears like a foolish man who is wielding an axe at the branch of the tree on which he is sitting."
13th January 1997

"Divinity resides in Creation in all forms starting from being more miniscule than the atom to the most colossal ones. It pervades the entire Creation as the eternal witness. The whole cosmos is made up of the five basic elements (Panch Bhootas) Space, Air, Fire, Water and Earth. Sound, touch, form, taste and smell represent their attributes. All these have emerged from Being-Awareness-Bliss (Sat-Chit-Ananda), the Primal Source."

"God has given enough avenues of joy in creation. But they have to be shared and enjoyed. You are entitled to just your share of it."

"Education has two aspects; the first is related to external and worldly education, which is nothing but acquiring bookish knowledge. In the modern world, we find many well versed and highly qualified in this aspect. The second aspect known as Educare is related to human values. The word Educare means to bring out that which is within. Human values are latent in every human being; one cannot acquire them from outside. They have to be elicited from within. Educare means to bring out human values. 'To bring out' means to translate them into action."

"Man is a combination of the body, the mind and the spirit (Atma). To forget his essential divinity and identify himself with a changing and impermanent form (the body) is the cause of bondage and sorrow. It is the mind that is the cause of this wrongful identification, because of its involvement with the external world, and the impressions received through the senses."

"When you insert the key into the lock and turn it to the right, the lock opens. When you turn it to the left, it gets locked. The heart is the lock; the mind is the key. You get attachment when your mind is turned towards the world. When it is turned towards God, you attain liberation. It is the same lock and the same key that are responsible for bondage and liberation."
