Our Inspiration

Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s pre-eminence as a humanitarian and philanthropist is of high standing all over the world. Baba stood forth as an educator since his childhood days. He warned, without hesitation, elders of His village, teachers in the schools, and headmen of castes against cruelty to animals and exploitation of labour, usury and gambling, pedantry and illiteracy, hypocrisy and pomp. Through gulps and jests, parody and satire, songs and plays, the young teenager ridiculed and reformed the society which honoured or tolerated such evils. He reminded men and women of the universal human values of Truth, Righteousness, Peace, Love and Non-violence as early as 1943, when he was barely seventeen.

Baba made humanity aware of the comparatively less beneficial lower learning which deals with theories, inferences, concepts, conjectures and constructions. He raised the curtain to reveal that the human race has been lowered into a bottomless pit, due to such supercilious learning that limits their infinite potential.

Hence Baba promulgated Higher Learning that hastens and expands the universal urge to know and become Truth, Goodness and Beauty, so as to help the human race voyage on an even keel.Baba has come as Man among men on a self-imposed mission to correct the wrongs inflicted on mankind through the fanatically blind pursuit of lower learning.

Baba emphatically proclaimed, “Vidya alone is the remedy”.
