When Bhagavan declared His Divine Avathar at the age of fourteen, He visualized a world of peace and happiness. It is His concern for the good of entire mankind and for the re-establishment of 'Sanathana Dharma' that He took human form.
In 1947 Bhagavan declared that His Sanathana Dharma rests on Four pillars – Sathya, Dharma, Santhi and Prema. These are the Four Primordial Principles of Sri Sathya Sai Bal Vikas Programme, which Bhagavan launched in 1969.
Bal Vikas is not just an education for children. It is the essence of all spiritual knowledge. It is Educare for Loka Vikas.

Komchamayinanu Gunamu Penchabodu:
Koti Vidyalu Undi Gunamu Lekunnacho
Atti Vidya kanna Matti Minna"
|"Today’s education can only help
children acquire worldly knowledge but
does not help to build noble Character.
A characterless person is inferior even
to soil even if he has several skills."
Bhakthi, Krama sikshana,
Addaani nerva valayu
Sathyamunu thelpu baata :
Sri Sai maata"
|"The fundamental aim of
education is to impart good
conduct, good intellect,
discipline and determination.
This is the true education."
