Higher Education – Sri Sathya Sai University for Human Excellence
Sri Sathya Sai University for Human Excellence is the higher education wing of Sri Sathya Sai Loka Seva Gurukulam Group of Institutions, and is located at Kalaburagi District, Karnataka. The University is a modern day Gurukula which is determined to reverse the current trends of commercialisation of knowledge, and herald a new goal of divinisation of humans by teaching sciences alongside spirituality, humanities alongside divinity, and excellence alongside enlightenment.
‘ātmano mokṣārtham jagat hitāya ca – Redemption of one’s own self and the welfare of society’, is the principle on which the Sri Sathya Sai University for Human Excellence has been founded. Here, the emphasis is first and foremost on a perfect balance between spiritual education (parā vidyā) and material education (aparā vidyā) or between jīvana upādhi (means of living) and jīvita paramāvadhi (ultimate goal of life).
