Daily Routine
Home Integral Education  Daily Routine
All students stay in the hostel located in the campus. The daily routine at the Hostel is designed to keep students engaged in constructive and productive activities—academic and extracurricular—throughout the day.
The day typically starts at 5:00 a.m. with a couple of hours spent in prayer, exercise and other vocational pursuits (such as practice sessions for music, band, traditional Indian instrumental music and the likes). Classes commence at 9:00 a.m.
After college ends at around 4:00 p.m., students move to the Mandir/Prayer hall for participation in congregational chanting (veda), devotional singing (bhajans) and other spiritual activities. These also include talks by eminent speakers on a variety of spiritual topics. Post dinner, students usually spend time on their studies.

Time Spent on Integral Education by SSSIHL Students

Bhagawan Baba purposefully designed the system of Integral Education so that while students spend 60% of their time on academics (intellectual capacities), they also spend 40% time on the development of other qualities.
These qualities include a spiritual awareness, cultural talents, physical capacities (sports and games) and fine tuning their higher sense of service to fellow human beings.

Outcomes

Together, these Integral Education dimensions help develop a strong character and positive qualities in students, including a broadened perspective on life, self-confidence and self-reliance, dignity of labour and respect for work, determination, dedication and commitment, sense of equanimity, creativity and innovation, teamwork, selfless service, leadership, entrepreneurship, time management and the quest for excellence.

Annual Time Spent by Students on Integral Education Dimensions

In this age, students have to imbibe the nine important qualities which are nine precious gems. These are spirit of sacrifice, humility, the spirit of selfless service to society, friendliness, discipline, commitment to integrity and truth, love, non-violence and faith in God.
