X iii Interconnection between spiritual and moral education?

1. What is the interconnection between practising moral values and leading a spiritual life?

Swami expects all parents to achieve fulfillment in their lives by moulding their children into virtuous persons. They should always aspire for the goodness and well being of their children. It is a good boy who becomes a god boy.
Sathya Sai Baba, 19 Nov 2001
 
People talk about the spiritual life, but rarely practise it. They often act contrary to it. The reason is the lack of virtues. Without good qualities, all other attributes are useless. It is like pouring water in a pot full of holes. When the heart is oozing with bad thoughts and evil desires, how can you fill it with pure aspirations?
