Sai Spiritual Education is a multi-cultural, multi-faith self-development program for children and young people from all over the world. The central point to the curriculum are the five human values: Truth (Sathya), Right Conduct (Dharma), Peace (Shanti), Love (Prema) and Non Violence (Ahimsa). The program helps children explore concepts of right and wrong through story telling, role-play, devotional singing, art, prayers, games, Swami's teachings, and teachings from various scriptures such as the Ramayana, Mahabharata, Holy Bible, Qu'ran, etc. 

It is an educational program designed to help develop positive values in children so that they grow up to become adults become fit for life, rather than just fit for earning a 'good' living.

"Bal Vikas (Sai Spiritual Education) is the primary basis of the great movement to restore righteousness (dharma) in the world. The ideal of the program is to raise a generation of boys and girls who have a clean and a clear conscience."

-Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba
