Unity in society can be attained only by each of us embracing the eternal and universal Human Values of Truth, Right Conduct, Peace, Love and Nonviolence. Therefore, for sustainable global peace and happiness, the practice of Human Values in our daily lives is most important.
The Sathya Sai International Organisation has declared the 24th of April as 'World Human Values Day' in grateful memory of its founder, Sathya Sai Baba's life, legacy and teachings. The aim is to celebrate this occasion by intensifying our practice of these 5 Human Values for our own spiritual awareness and the upliftment of our families, communities and the entire world.
In Canada, 90 cities have proclaimed April 24th as 'Human Values Day' and have become part of this inspiring initiative which aims at bringing about collective transformation.
Activities conducted around the world to promote the practice of Human Values may include Walk for Values; Education in Human Values classes for children, music and cultural programmes, service activities, talks, public meetings, community engagements and interfaith programmes, which may be adapted to suit local customs and cultures.
