Inspiring session for Sathya Sai Educators

We have been working as Balvikas gurus for the last four years. What is the result for the last four years? These questions should be asked in the conference and changes and additions have to be made in our working. The gurus should also discuss as groups amongst themselves, put down their own experiences and see what changes have to be made and take necessary steps. We should also discuss what path will enable us to give prosperity to the children and country.” – Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, Balvikas Conference 1979


Seasoned and aspiring SSE/Bal Vikas teachers and enthusiasts headed to a nature lodge in La Vega Estate, Gran Couva on Saturday, April 2nd for a retreat dedicated entirely to them. It was an opportunity for participants from various regions in the country to meet and share their passion and dedication for Sathya Sai Education in a relaxed, informal setting.

Participants, ranging in age and experience, began the day with a meditative nature walk through the beautiful grounds. They then discussed their perspectives on Educare, and journeyed through the 5 Human Values. After reflecting on Swami’s guidelines to teachers and his expectations of the SSE/Bal Vikas program, they discussed challenges and opportunities for more collaborative offerings.

It was an inspiring and rejuvenating experience for all, who appreciated the opportunity to meet their counterparts from different areas and bond over their shared goals as Sathya Sai educators.
