Sathya Sai Baba is a highly revered spiritual leader and world teacher, whose life and message are inspiring millions of people throughout the world to lead more purposeful and moral lives. His timeless and universal teachings, along with the manner in which he led his own life, are attracting seekers of Truth from all the religions of the world. Yet, he is not seeking to start a new religion. Nor does he wish to direct followers to any particular religion. Rather, he urges us to continue to follow the religion of our choice and/or upbringing. He is transforming the world by re-establishing the eternal values of Truth, Right Conduct, Peace, Love and Non-Violence in everyday living.
Sai Baba portrays character as harmony in thought, word, and deed consistent with the human values of truth, right conduct, peace, love, and nonviolence. He emphasizes that the end of education is character, and that the teacher must be a personal exemplar of good values.
Sai Baba has established Sathya Sai Schools in many countries around the world including Australia, Brazil, Canada, Fiji, Indonesia, India, Kenya, Mauritius, Nepal, Philippines, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, USA, United Kingdom and Zambia. All Sathya Sai Schools are seats of excellence in spiritual, moral and academic education.
Sai Baba has laid down four basic principles, namely:
There is only One Religion, the religion of Love.
There is only One Language, the language of the Heart.
There is only One Caste, the caste of Humanity.
There is only One God, He is Omnipresent.
The undercurrent of all of Sathya Sai Baba’s teachings is the principle of LOVE. He has often stated that the essence of all His teachings is contained in the simple yet powerful canons – “Love All, Serve All; Help Ever, Hurt Never”.
