Feedback on our cover story: The Zenith of Holistic Learning
The six articles in this cover story series are inspiring. I have always cherished a deep admiration for Swami's educational institutions. I have been there for the Annual Sports meet a couple of times, and could get the feel of the lives of pupils there.
What the world needs today is exactly the same teaching/learning that happens at Swami's institutions. In a world where people go to educational institutes only because they promise them a great pay package, the Sathya Sai Institutions (School, College, University) actually stand out. In fact, I have a great respect for the people who have been educated here. These people not only know the "how" and "when" of things, but also the "why". And this is the hallmark of intelligent living. Divine Grace moulds the young minds and helps them to see things as they are - the manifestations of the Single Entity.
As an eminent educational legend said "No university can regard itself complete until it equips its students with technical/ professional expertise, proper human values and a compassionate heart." I'm happy our country has at least one school, one college and one university, and sincerely wish that we have many more real educational institutions that eliminate (mitigate, at least) avidya [ignorance] from human beings, at their budding stages.
Your cover story about the inner working of Swami's School is an excellent example of unity between the teacher and the taught, with harmony, humility and selfless loving relationship pervading there. Swami's School should be the role model for the other schools in India and the rest of the world. I was impressed by the teachers' loving, caring and motivating attitude. The students' adherence to discipline, their highest sense of acquiring excellence in secular and spiritual areas and still being sincerely loving and caring for fellow students is amazing and unique.
Please bring in more short videos with students' views and their reflections about the greatness of Swami's educational system and how much they have benefited from it. I sincerely wish that other educational institutions and their administrators in India and outside India accept the principles and procedures of the Sri Sathya Sai School, to bring out the best from the students and make them the great citizens of their country.
Of late, before getting engrossed into normal office and other engagements, I look for Bhagavan's words and the articles in H2H which stay with me for the whole day. I cannot find a more inspiring way to attract one's mind to Namasmarana. The ongoing articles on Bhagavan's school must have evinced keen interest in the Sai Family. I am indeed blessed with Bhagavan's Grace as my son studied in Swami's School and thereafter did his graduation from Brindavan campus. At present he is doing his post graduation from Prasanthi Nilayam Campus. My daughter too has completed B.Sc (Hons.) and B.Ed. from Anantapur Campus.
I pray to Bhagavan to help discipline my mind for constant Nishkama Namsmarana which was so beautifully conveyed in today's H2H.
Thanks for the wonderful inspiring cover story! I did not know so much about the school. Only when all the petals join together, it becomes a beautiful flower fit to be offered at Bhagavan’s Lotus Feet! Thanks once again and keep up the good work!
Dear Heart2Heart Team,
The article about the school was very nice. I studied at the school almost 15 years back, and I can say without doubt that the teachers there were the most devoted and dedicated lot. The article brought back a lot of memories.
Aditya, Ph.D. student,
Excellent…brought tears to my eyes….…my own memories as a student of the senior boys’ hostel came alive once again……truly refreshing, the photos and the content make it even more interesting …..Congratulations to Radio Sai.

I found the cover story very inspiring and again had lots of tears running down my face. The SSS Higher Secondary School is an amazing Institution and with Swami’s Grace it will change this world and fill it with Love.
Feedback on: Interview with Mrs. Rani Subramanian - Part 4
Part 4 of Sister Rani's interview was absolutely fantastic! It was extremely inspiring and gave great insight into how our beloved Swami wants us to think, behave and react. Please continue to give us such excellent articles. I am anxiously waiting for part 5! Please interview other devotees like Sister Rani so that we can read and learn more how to conduct ourselves in a proper fashion.
Best Wishes and Warmest Regards,
This is one of the most inspiring H2H articles. I am going to forward this to my son and daughter. I open my computer to read H2H and all the doubts are being answered. I used to feel so far away from Sai Ma since He has kept me so long in the "Workshop". But then after I read the article, I realized that all this is for a reason. Sai Ma loves all. We should not restrict Him to being Sathya Sai Baba, instead we should understand, learn and follow His Teachings.
