2.  SSE-temp2
CLASS DATE: 04/09/2017
TEACHERS: Vanaja Aunty, sharanya
VALUE/SUMMARY: Compassion for Water

Today most of the time we were practicing for the Easwaramma Day program. We also did some recording with Kripa aunty.

After the practice Patti talked to us how we can be compassionate to WATER. She also told us how we can save water while brushing our teeth or while washing our face.

She did a fun activity with water. She filled three glasses with different amounts of water. When she tapped them with a spoon, they all made different sounds. We concluded the class by chanting Shanthi 3 times.

Note to Parents:
Please talk to your children how they can save water in their daily lives.

4.  Introduction to Study Circle
Sathya Sai Baba tells us that the spiritual growth of a person is best achieved through an integrated practice of devotion, study, and service. The study circle carries many benefits to participants. The primary benefit is the acquisition of Self-knowledge.
Swami says:

It is not just reading books. Circle, study circle means taking a point and each person discussing what is the meaning of the point to them—like a round table conference. Each person gives his point of view, and finally values are derived from this. If there is just reading, there is doubt, but if each one gives his view, doubts will be answered. The topic is viewed; the study circle looks at different facets. It is like a diamond with its different facets, but there is one facet that is flat, the top facet, and from this all can be viewed. To discover the top facet is the task [purpose] of study circle”.

At Raleigh Sai Center the study circle facilitator gently encourages the participating members to express their view of the presented material. Each participant is given an opportunity to speak without fear of contradiction all along aiming for as Swami has guided us to enjoy study circle by reading, reflection and regular application in daily life.
