Media coverage of Sri Sathya Sai University, Puttaparthi, Andhra Pradesh
Sathya Sai Babas personal chamber openedThe Sathya Sai Central Trust on Thursday opened Yajur Mandir, the personal chamber of spiritual leader Sathya Sai Baba in Prashanti Nilayam ashram at Puttaparthi in Andhra Pradeshs Anantapur district.
Almost two months after the demise of Sathya Sai Baba, members of the trust in the presence of some senior judicial and police officials opened the locks of his residence. Media persons were not allowed.
Two days after the trust decided to open Yajur Mandir, trust members entered inside. Details of what they found were not immediately available.
Former chief justice of India P.N. Bhagwati, who announced his resignation as member of the trust on Wednesday night, was also present. Bhagwati, however, said he would continue as the vice-chancellor of Sri Sathya Sai University.
Sathya Sai Babas personal care-giver Satyajit, who alone had the knowledge of the biometric lock system, accompanied the trust members and officials. During the spiritual gurus lifetime, Satyajit was the only person who had access to his personal chamber.
Other trust members R.J. Ratnakar, who is also the nephew of Sathya Sai Baba, S.V. Giri, V. Srinivasan and trust secretary K. Chakravarthi were also present.
Yajur Mandir, also known as Yajurveda Mandir, has remained closed ever since Sathya Sai Baba was hospitalised on March 28 with multi-organ dysfunction. He died on April 24.
There are speculations that the chamber contained huge quantities of gold, jewellery and cash donated by devotees from across the world.
A section of devotees also alleged that valuables were taken out of Prashanti Nilayam when Sathya Sai Baba was battling for life. However, the trust has denied this.
Some devotees had demanded that the locks of Yajur Mandir be opened in their presence.
MissionSpeaking to the students at one of the Sathya Sai Colleges which later formed part of the Sri Sathya Sai University, its founder, Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba declared, "This college has not been established just to prepare you for earning degrees.
The main purpose is to help you to cultivate self-knowledge and self confidence, so that each one of you can learn self-sacrifice and earn self-realisation.
Teaching the university curricula, preparing you for the examinations and earning degrees are only the means employed for the end, namely spiritual uplift, self-discovery and social service though Love, Detachment.
Our hope is that by your lives, you will be shining examples of spiritual awareness and its beneficial consequences to the individual and society.
This college is run on higher principles. Here the emphasis is on giving and forgiving, not on getting and forgetting those who gave you what you got.
We also encourage service, especially between the illiterate and the needy in villages around. We try to highlight the responsibilities of youth rather than rights.
The right is earned only by the proper discharge of the responsibility. When you shirk your duty, you have no rights to ask for your rights.
Remember the years spent in this college are the most precious in your lives. If they are wasted in indifference or positive idleness, you will have to rue for it, all the rest of your lives.
Being in this college is the highest piece of good fortune and if you do not rise up to our expectations through negligence or waywardness, the loss is irreparable.
You will learn here the valuable lessons of detachment, loving service, fraternity, humility, sincerity, fortitude and fearlessness. Treasure them for they will serve as reliable props when you enter the world of action.
In college you will be marching from smaller truths to bigger truths, until you are taught the know-how to reach the higher truth.
I am depending on you students, for a great transformation in outlook, a great revolution.Students of the Sri Sathya Sai College must lead this movement.
The older generation can only talk; it is you who must act. You have to prove yourselves worthy of this college.
Be disciplined; be sweet in manners, in speech and in relations with the less fortunate. Be grateful to your parents, your villages and those who strive for your welfare. Try your best to earn a fair name for yourselves, for your college and for your parents.
Do not be under the impression that you and I have come together only now since you study in this college; you have come to me for the sake of far higher triumphs; as a consequence of merits acquired during previous lives.
You and your teachers are destined to achieve tremendous tasks under my guidance, in the execution of the mission for which I have come
Salient FeaturesThe University has several distinctive features. The more important among them are:
Free Education: The University does not charge any type of fees - tuition fees, laboratory fees, library fees, examination fees, caution deposit and the like.
An open admission policy enabling students from all over the country to seek admission to various courses, irrespective of income, class, creed, religion or region, making it truly national in character.
Merit based selection through a very comprehensive testing and interviewing procedure giving adequate weightage to intellectual attainments and intuitive insight.
A very favourable teacher-pupil ratio for closer rapport between students and faculty.
Residential character of the University with students and faculty staying on the Campuses.
Development of Scientific Research at the doctoral level relevant to the local and national needs; introduction of educational technology through the installation of a modern space theatre in rural surroundings providing an opportunity for the students and the faculty to develop various kinds of simulation exercises and also formulate programmes of a creative and constructive character.
Integrated courses of five years duration in order to promote talent.
Maximum number of working days, fuller utilisation of national holidays and important festivals for educational purposes and extension work.
The success of the University in upholding these high ideals may be judged from the fact that everything operates with clockwork precision. In particular, there is never any student unrest. Examinations are always held on schedule as announced, and the Annual Convocation of the University invariably takes place on November 22. Sai students are scattered throughout the Globe, and wherever they are, they remain committed to the values they had imbibed while studying.
HistoryThe Sri Sathya Sai University (formerly Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning) was founded on November 22, 1981, by Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. An autonomous body, it has been recognized by the Ministry of Education, Government of India, and the University Grants Commission (UGC), as a Deemed University vide their notification no.F9-11/81-U.3 dt.10.11.1981. The University has been admcitted as a regular member of the Association of Indian Universities vide their letter no. Meet/Reg.Memb/86/97596 dt.20.4.1986.
The University which grew out of the Colleges founded earlier by Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba at Anantapur (A.P.), Whitefield (near Bangalore, Karnataka) and Prasanthi Nilayam (A.P.), aims at imparting integral education, development of character being considered the primary objective of education.
In practical terms, the programmes offered by the University seek to combine the best of both our ancient traditions, and modern advancements. While the foundations are the eternal human values, the superstructure relates to todayâ€™s Society. The University subscribes wholly to the concept and practice of national integration and has adopted an open admission policy, based on merit, encouraging the enrollment of boys and girls from all over the country. In order to effectively mould the studentâ€™s personality, hostel living has been made compulsory and patterned in the ancient Gurukula style.
SportsReport on the Annual Sports and Cultural Meet 2007
The Annual Sports and Cultural Meet of the Sri Sathya Sai Educational Institutions is one of landmark events in the calendar for students and devotees of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. The Meet is as much a testimonial to the integral system of education established by Bhagawan in His educational institutions as it is to the spirit of devotion and dedication that He inspires in His students and teachers. Bhagawan has always stressed that equal attention must be paid to developing all aspects of a studentâ€™s personality â€“ physical, mental and spiritual. Hence, this event has been marked out as a day when the students from Sri Sathya Sai University and from Sri Sathya Sai Higher Secondary School exhibit their skill and prowess on the field as a prelude the sports and cultural events of the year.
This year, the Annual Sports and Cultural Meet was held on 12th January in the picturesque environs of Sri Sathya Sai Hill View Stadium at Prasanthi Nilayam. The crowds were swelling up days ahead in eager anticipation of the event. On 12th morning, Bhagawan was welcomed in to the stadium at 7.20 a.m. escorted by students on motorbikes holding flags and banners. Bhagawan then lit the ceremonial lamp and inaugurated the event.
The first item was the march past. All the students of men and women campuses of the University, Junior College of Anantapur and the tiny tots of the school, turned out in smart and bright apparels marching in step with the beats and rhythms of the University Brass Band. They then assembled in the grounds to take the oath to participate in the events in the â€œproper spirit of sportsmanship for the greater glory of sport, and for the honour of the country and our beloved Mother Saiâ€. Bhagawan then lit the ceremonial torch which was then carried by runners up to the mascot, a dove. The mascot glided up the guide-wires to the light the ceremonial altar near the foot of the Hanuman statue signalling the beginning of the dayâ€™s proceedings.
The Brindavan campus of the University began their presentation with a display of paragliding. The students, after taking off from Sri Sathya Sai Airport, made a flawless landing in the grounds of the Hill View Stadium. After touching ground, the students went up to the dais to receive Bhagawan blessings and mementoes from His Hand and a well earned pat on the cheek for their courageous efforts. Next came the â€˜Trail Blazersâ€™, the team of gymnasts and acrobats, who displayed their balance, skill and control while performing various thrilling feats on motorcycles like handstand, pyramids, lotus formation, ramp jump and jumping through a ring of fire. Some of them also played on accordion and kettle drums while standing, their hands off the steering! Then followed a cricket drill where the boys dressed up in the colours of the cricket teams of various nations displayed various batting strokes and bowling action in perfect coordination and symmetry. Thereafter, all the students assembled in front of the stage and offered their salutations to Bhagawan before bowing out.
The Prasanthi Nilayam campus of the University and the Higher Secondary School students came on to the ground to offer their programme at the Lotus Feet. The first item was a invocatory dance to Lord Ganesha. Following this was a series of items which mesmerized the audience with the confidence, courage, physical endurance and suppleness of the students - gymnastics, pyramid formations, Chinese martial arts display using swords and spears, a basketball display called â€˜Chasing Championsâ€™, Jeep stunts and carabining. Among all the events, the last three events stole the show. In â€˜Chasing Championsâ€™, small school boys performed various stunts and tricks with the basketball. They used a trampoline and dunked the ball in to the net in various ways that were quite amusing to watch, but really difficult to perform. One of the stunts involved jumping over a car before dunking the ball into the basket, all of which was flawlessly executed.
Then followed carabining by a team of bravehearts who called themselves â€˜Hawksâ€™. They performed many stunts mid-air as they came dangerously sliding down the rope from the top of the hillock to the ground. In the Jeep stunts item, while some boys performed pyramids on moving jeeps, two boys were tied to another jeepâ€™s rear and were dragged on the ground as the jeeps sped all over the ground in a fury. The jeeps also performed the scissor-cross where they crossed each other within a hairâ€™s breadth of each other at terrifying speeds. The programme concluded with a song expressing their love and gratitude to their Divine Chancellor. The background had the words â€œSai, We love Youâ€, aptly crystallizing the thoughts of each and every student and teacher who toiled day and night just to see a sweet smile playing on their Lordâ€™s lips.
The afternoon session saw Bhagawan being welcomed by the students of the Sri Sathya Sai Primary School in caterpillar formation. The girl students exhibited a number of dance formations. Their colourful costumes and the imaginatively arranged sequences made for a pleasing sight, which were greatly appreciated by the audience. A team of acrobats from the school put up a fantastic display of their skills performing gymnastics not only on the ground but also on poles. There was also a daring display on a grid about 40 feet high. All this made for a highly entertaining programme as always from the children of the Sri Sathya Sai Primary School. They concluded by serenading their Lord with the song â€œMadhura Mohana Ghanashyamaâ€
The presentation by the Anantapur campus of Sri Sathya Sai University began with an innovative item with the girls performing stunts on roller-skates and skateboards atop a moving platform about 10 feet above the ground. Next was a dance drill depicting the daily schedule of the students which combines academics with games and sports with spirituality as the underlying basis - all contributing to the wholesome development of the studentâ€™s personality. The students returned to the moving platform, this time with a steel grid mounted atop the platform performing a variety of yogic postures. At the end of the presentation, the students gathered in front of the dais to express their gratitude to Bhagawan for His love and grace combined with the studentsâ€™ toil and efforts that made the presentation a thumping success.
At the end of the programme Arati was offered to Bhagawan and He was ceremonially escorted out of the Hill View Stadium to His residence by the cavalcade of students at 5.45 p.m. thereby bringing the dayâ€™s events to a close.
Daily LifeThe Residential Hostel life is an integral part of the Instituteâ€™s academic programme. Hostel stay is compulsory for all students admitted to the Instituteâ€™s programme. Hostel life revolves basically around 3 D s - Discipline, Duty and Devotion. Where these three are concerned much is expected from students. A very high standard of discipline is demanded, which, it should be appreciated, is entirely in the interest of students. Infringement of discipline would be viewed seriously by the Hostel authorities; students must therefore ensure that there is absolutely no lapse on their part on this count.
The Hostel routine has been structured, bearing in mind Bhagavan Baba s directive that all aspects of the Student s personality (i.e., body, mind and soul), should receive due and careful attention. The day begins with early rising and prayer (5 a.m.) and ends with prayer and retirement to bed (10 p.m.). During this period, time slots are reserved for various activities - spiritual, cultural, physical, academic and social. Ample scope is provided for students to give full expression to their latent talents in sports, speaking, singing, painting, dancing, etc. Students are also encouraged to participate in community-oriented activities, both in the Hostel as well as the college. Altogether, Hostel life not only complements and supplements class-room instruction, but is delicately interwoven with the latter so as to achieve a holistic moulding of the student s personality and the development of character as well. Harmonious living and the spirit of co-operation as well as selflessness are particularly encouraged.
Integral ItemsThe philosophy of education of the University is based on the appreciation of the need to provide full scope for the development of mind and heart. Discipline, duty and adherence to basic human values as the best qualities of students in the University, are deeply appreciated.
The Integral Items of education are applicable to all students, irrespective of the course they are admitted to. The University attaches great importance to this component of education.
Included in the category of Integral items are:
Sports and Games
Social Service weeks
Morning Assembly Talks
Students are continuously assessed on these items. The Final Grade statement of the student takes into account the Grades awarded under the category of Integral Items also along with Academic Items.
Sports and Games
Students are encouraged to play sports and games both in the mornings and in evenings on the play fields. Students form themselves into house teams and conduct tournaments between the teams. An annual tournament and athletic meet is organized and students who distinguish themselves are awarded certificates of merit.
Profile of the UniversityThe National Assessment and Accreditation Council has granted accreditation at the A++ level to the University of Higher Learning for five years, from 2002-03. This places the University in the top bracket of the Indian Universities.
"The Peer Team feels that this University stands out as a crest-jewel among the University education system worthy of emulation by the institutions of higher learning in the country and elsewhere, so that these benefits would be reaped fast and on the widest possible scale"
Social Service WeeksDuring social service weeks, students get an opportunity of repairing roads and buildings, cleaning and white washing, organizing medical camps, and tree plantation.
During festivals and other functions, they enthusiastically participate in the management of stage at Prasanthi Nilayam, including electric installation, audio-visual equipment and items and activities connected with dramas are attended to by the students.
The students are also made to participate on special occasions and serve the poor by distributing clothes and food to them; maintenance of general traffic, orderly movement of crowds, catering, seating, etc are the other activities which are assigned to them on such occasions.
Morning Assembly AddressIn order to enthuse meaningful participation of the students, they are encouraged to address the morning assembly sessions for about 15 minutes on important themes relating to unity of faiths, great leaders of the world, eminent scientists, sages, saints patriots, thinkers, philosophers and their own personal experiences in the University, etc.
Talks about sages, saints, apostles, public men, social workers, etc. are not only confined to India but to other parts of the world which proves that even though geographically men of eminence may belong to different parts of the world, they have in fact one goal and philosophy in common which is to serve man and world.
These talks are based on an in-depth study of the lives of great men in various spheres of human activity with a view to bringing out the good qualities and values actually lived by them, which contributed to their greatness as inspiring leaders. The personalities covered have been eminent leaders and therefore a source of inspiration.
Instead of dwindling into a daily ritual, this active participation of students in the daily morning assembly gives them an occasion to search in the library and elsewhere for books and materials, not containing moral lessons, but lives of great men given as things of supreme interest-lives which exemplify the living of great thoughts and noble emotions.
It makes them reflect on various aspects of the lives of great men, select and sift what is relevant for the occasion, collect their thoughts and present these in a coherent manner before the mixed audience of Faculty members, students and sometimes outside guests. Apart from the fact that opportunities are given in public speaking on topics of human values, participation in the morning assembly stimulates intellectual excellence and promotes intuitive abilities both among the speakers and among the listeners.
The subjects covered in these talks are organised in such a way that they not only inspire and instruct but also enable one to reflect on the imperatives of abiding human values. The students who participate in the morning talks feel inspired and accept it as both a challenge and an opportunity. It is a delight to watch the young boys and girls expressing themselves on variety of subjects, which have ethical values and have universal appeal.
Thursday AssembliesOn Thursdays, a distinguished speaker is requested to talk on his thrilling personal experiences, messages from our sacred scriptures, the services rendered by noble persons which make our lives worthy of living and of service to the common man. The speakers on Thursday, include not only learned scholars from various educational institutions but people of all ranks including eminent educationists, judges, engineers, doctors, highly successful business managers, administrators, diplomats, scientists, social workers, etc. not only within the country but all over the world who visit the campuses from time to time.
