Swami's Expectations of Women

Swami’s mission is one of individual transformation; social change one person at a time. Women have an important role to play as exemplars at home, in education and outside the home as well.

This collation of quotes is not just for women alumnae of SSSU but for all daughters of Sai.

The feminine is the foundation on which a peaceful and happy world is to be raised. When women are true and brave, kind and compassionate, virtuous and pious, the world can have an era of peace and joy.
Sathya Sai Baba, 25 Jul 1975
 
Women have natural aptitude for faith and spiritual endeavour. Women with devotion, faith, and meekness can lead men on the Godward path and the practice of holy virtues. The woman is the prop of the home and religion. She plants and fosters religious faith or dries up and uproots it.
Sathya Sai Baba, Dharma Vahini

Leader in the path of values: Women should take the correct path then men will follow suit, as it is the women who have to take the leading role. The wife is half of the husband; if she becomes good, then her husband, who is the other half, will also become good.

Men do not have the same spirit of sacrifice as women. If any problem arises, men come forward with initial enthusiasm, but it is only women who resolutely fight until success is achieved.

The Vedas declare that wherever women are respected and given their rightful place, there, Divinity is present with all the facets of its glory.
Sathya Sai Baba, 19 Nov 1995

Do not indulge in vain gossip. How can you expect God to fulfil your wishes if you talk ill of others?
Sathya Sai Baba, 11 Aug 2000

Swami and His Daughters

The first Sathya Sai college that Swami established was the Sathya Sai Women’s College in Anantapur.

This college is not only for this town, but, it has to be a model and an eye-opener for all who are interested in the education of women and the uplift of our culture, through the mothers of the land.
Sathya Sai Baba, 7 Nov 1969
 
There are now thousands and thousands of educational institutions in the world. But, there is a great difference between the rest and those founded by Sathya Sai. The fundamental objectives of Sai Institutions are humility, adherence to discipline, and application of what is learned in daily life. If what is learned is not put into practice, the student is like a cow that does not yield milk, a fruit lacking in taste, a book bereft of wisdom. It is not really man’s task to stuff his head with transient knowledge and waste time in acquiring it. He should not engage in valueless activities and fritter away years of life.
Sathya Sai Baba, 6 Nov 1981
 
The Lord of the Universe, our Divine Chancellor knows what is best for each of us. He knows how to prepare each person to take part in His Divine Mission. Swami encourages, inspires and cherishes each little effort on our part.

We hope that over time, the portal will help to collate and provide transcripts of final-year interviews, letters written to the girls by Swami and other messages that Swami has given the girl-students.
 
I wish that the pupils of this college live so fully in love that the homes where they were born and bred, and the homes which they enter on marriage, and the homes they themselves establish--all will be happy, on account of them. No one of them should feel dishonoured, through their behaviour. All must shine as splendid examples of joy and contentment, devotion and dedication.
Sathya Sai Baba, 23 Nov 1996
