The Indian spiritual teacher Sathya Sai Baba (*23.11.1926 †24.4.2011) emphasised universal human values: truth, righteousness, peace, love and non-violence. His teachings were addressed to all humanity; they attracted spiritual seekers of all faiths from all nations. With simple maxims such as “Help ever, hurt never” or “Love all, serve all”, Sai Baba reached people from all socio-economic strata. In the course of his work, institutions for the welfare of millions, especially the poorest, came into being under his spiritual guidance.
Numerous educational institutions from primary schools to universities were established in many states of India and later in other countries, of which he was the Chancellor. The Sai education system is non-denominational and free. It is based on education in human values and combines science, art and spirituality in all areas of education. Special emphasis is placed on selfless service to society and tolerance and appreciation of all people, cultures and religions.
