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).
Sri Sathya Sai University for Human Excellence unequivocally declares, “We are here to remind humanity about their only right – the right to realise their innate divinity and to claim this right without a tremble of doubt and without a shiver of uncertainty. We are here to pare the rind of commercialisation of education, to enfeeble the noise of competition in education and to enervate the boom of money-making education.”
The University offers undergraduate education in Bachelor of Arts (B.A.), Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.), Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Music and Dance, and Bachelor of Vedic Studies. It offers postgraduate education in humanities and sciences.
