Sathya Sai Education in Human Values Ein Hod, Israel, 14th of May, 2016
To complement, refresh and keep the knowledge taught by the ISSE-SE during the first Educare seminar given on Course 1, Module 1a, in March 11-12th, 2016, a four hour workshop offering practical lessons on the values of Truth and Love was organised and taught by Israeli teachers on the 14th of May, 2016, at Ein Hod, Israel. Around 20 people attended the workshop, part of them new and part of them having attended the first seminar. The workshop included a short explanation on the essence of Sathya Sai Education in Human Values and two lessons, one each on the values of Truth and Love.
The lesson on the value of Love was based on the subject of selfless love as a basis to happiness and success. A banner on the wall had the translation of Swami’s quote: “Start the day with love, fill the day with love, end the day with love.” The lesson was conveyed through the five methods: a story, a group discussion, and then a discussion in small groups, and sharing with all, silent sitting (guided meditation on the light), drawing what was perceived, and a song on love.
After a short lunch break, the lesson on the value of Truth was conveyed, with the sub-value of Honesty, also built around the five basic tools in SSEHV. The accent was put on the importance and the contribution of Honesty with oneself, and in interactions and relationships within a couple, between parents and children, amongst the children themselves, in society, and in the country.
The lessons were conveyed at the level of adults, so that the participants may experience upon themselves the impact of the programme. The participation was intense, as the people present reported having a deep, moving and teaching experience.
