While the role of education is to foster growth in all areas of human development, its primary focus should be on the “Art of awakening” of the individual’s spirit. Learning from the heart is spiritual awakening, says Sri Sathya Sai Baba. He further says, what the head thinks, should be examined critically in the heart and the right decision should be carried out by the hands.This should be the primary product of the educational process.
