  Human Values and Sub Values

Values and Human Values

Sathya Sai Baba has told us he is following human values. He want us to follow also. This is his right. With this right, we should fight. When someone asks you if you are following human values, you should not reply, "I will try". This is failure. The secret of success is to be prepared for all situations. One should be prepared with strength of mind, self confidence and this will bestow strength of human values.

Sub Values

Sub Values illuminate the full dimension of each overarching human value. Sub values complement each human value and lead to an overplus of meaning, to a whole synthesis. Balance and harmony are the fruit of the synthesis and application of each sub value. Truth is illuminated by its corresponding sub values, Love is complemented by all the dimensions of these sub values. Peace is integrate wholly by sub values, Right conduct is a whole synthesis of the practice of all its elements. Educare means to bring out human values. "To bring out" means to translate them into action.

In ancient times, Truth and Right Action were fostered. In more recent times, Peace and Love were fostered. In the present modern era, the necessary strength has been given to every human to foster all the five values. Instead of relying on worldly power, man can rely on the fundamental powers of human life, Truth, Love, Peace, Right Conduct and Non-violence. This is an endowment that was not given to human beings in ancient times. All these human values and sub values are the inherent properties of the human person.

Human Values:

108 Sub-values

As Human Values are the five pillars supporting the Sathya Sai Human Values Program, they can also form the hanger on which the cloth of daily life is based, be it at home, work, recreation or service activity.

Human values are the qualities that already lie within each of us like a golden effulgence and can be drawn forth into consciousness in all our cultures through Educare. Educare is the spiritual process of eliciting the 5 human values latent in every person. The five human values are the essential ingredients for good Character, which is the end product of education and the catalysts for sweetening and strengthening the daily life curriculum into something that can benefit society, rather than harming it; the pivotal foci for self-learning which fits one for life. Human values provide the Unity in our apparent diversity. We are the sculptors of our own character, chipping away and dissolving those thoughts, words and actions, which are not related to the universal Human Values
