Value Eductaion Pogramme

VALUE EDUCATION PROGRAMME Dr.B.Sree Jahannathan Ph.D. The aim of this booklet is to highlight various aspects of Human Values and the concept of Value Based Education Programme as introduced by Sri Sathya Sai Baba, a great Indian Saint and the Chancellor of Sri Sathya Sai Deemed University, Prashanthi Nilayam, Andhra Pradesh. Let us first of all understand the meaning of the word ‘value’. Value literally means something precious. In the words of John Dewey, “The value means primarily to prize, to esteem, to appraise and to estimate”. It means the act of achieving something, holding it and also the act of passing judgment upon the nature and amounts of values are compared with something else. Education in Human Values: Education in Human Values means, imparting a process which inculcates moral, spiritual and social values to the students, while learning at schools or colleges. “Value education has the capacity to transform a diseased mind into very young, fresh, innocent, healthy natural and attentive mind. The transformed mind is capable of higher sensitivity and a heightened level of perception. This leads to fulfillment of the evolutionary role in man and in life. Education in human values is based on teachings of moral, ethical and spiritual values which are essential to develop an individual’s character. But it does not mean a mechanical teaching and learning but of a deliberate cultivation. Read this complete booklet....
