In mid-November 2020, an online basic course (Course 1) on human values was organized by the European Sathya Sai Education (ESSE) Institute. The two-day seminar was attended by 67 people from 19 cities of Russia and Belarus, including 22 teachers. The participants became acquainted with the life and teachings of Sri Sathya Sai Baba, the five human values, methods of spiritual transformation, and the activities of the SSSIO. Round table discussions were organized, and videos of Sri Sathya Sai Baba were screened. The participants were happy to be able to grasp complex topics which were made easy by the presenters, and many people commented that this seminar strengthened their commitment for self-improvement.
