Sri Sathya Sai Baba with Students,Maharashtra and Goa,Dharmakshetra(Educare)
Education has two aspects; the first is related to external and worldly education, which is nothing but acquiring bookish knowledge. The second aspect is known as Educare, is related to human values. The word Educare means to bring out that which is within.
Practically, educare refers to all educational programmes of teaching aimed at helping humanity draw out the qualities of goodness inherent in man, and to understand the inner makeup of a human being in relation to the outer physical world, in order to keep a perfect balance.
Sri Sathya Sai Educare therefore refers to a whole system of education which provides practical knowledge for educating for life and not just for earning a living.
