Bharatiya Samskriti (Culture of Bharat) is a composite of purity, divinity, sublimity and beauty. This combination is reflected in sports and games. Although there may be differences among nations in their food and recreational habits, the spirit of harmony and unity displayed in sports is a gratifying example to all. It is a distinctive quality of sports that differences are forgotten and persons engage themselves in games in a divine spirit of friendliness and camaraderie. Sports help the players not only to improve their health but also to experience joy. Students, however, should not be content with realising these benefits. It is equally essential to promote purity of the mind and develop large heartedness. True humanness blossoms only when the body, the mind and the spirit are developed harmoniously. The enthusiasm and effort which you display in sports should also be manifested in the spheres of morality and spirituality.

- Divine Discourse, Jan 14, 1990.

Sathya Sai Baba
The beauty in sports and games is the spirit of unity with which the participants play, eschewing feelings of envy and hatred. - Baba
