With Swami's Grace, the Sri Sathya Sai Awareness Course offered by the SSSGC Zone 1 Educational Programs Committee (SSSEP) was very well received by the course participants. On its heels, our prayer and goal are to offer the second in our series, titled the Sri Sathya Sai Human Values: Practical Application Course in partnership with the SSSGC Zone 1 Program for Awareness of Human Values and Educare Committee (SSSPAVE). Both young adults and adults will have the blessed opportunity to explore the practical implementation of the five human values of Truth, Right Action, Peace, Love, and Non-Violence.
Like the first course, the second course is also a 10-week practical, interactive course that will delve into the heart of Swami's teachings on human values. Swami teaches us to avoid compartmentalizing our lives into the spiritual and the mundane. Every aspect of our lives, whether it pertains to our home, work, or the community we live in, is designed for our spiritual development. Our values represent our personal guiding principles or life goals, which in turn guide our behavior in all aspects of life, including our home life, work life, and social life. The importance of values lies in their implementation, which this course aims to promote.
Those who missed the first course are still eligible to register for this course because the only prerequisites are unsullied Love for Swami and a firm determination to implement His teachings.
Discussions will center around practical day-to-day issues or challenges we face in our daily lives in practicing the five human values. Eminent leaders in the Sai Community will be guest speakers. Small breakout groups will ensure inclusion, intimate participation, and in-depth analysis. Putting into practice the course material will be a large portion of the assigned homework for this course, and opportunities for experience sharing by interested participants will be provided.
