Our Story

Prashanti Bala Mandira Girls High School (English medium)

Chikkaballapur

Prashanti Bala Mandira School is located in the holy premises of Sri Yogeshwara Mutt in the north of the serene and calm town of Chikkaballapur, in the state of Karnataka. The land where the School stands today belonged to Sri Yogeshwara Mutt. The sanctified premises of Sri Yogeshwara Mutt have a pious history. This place was an Ashram where a Yogi by name, Sri Yogeshwar Maharaj spent his life, meditating in a cellar beneath the Ashram. He would occasionally emerge from the basement and speak to his devotees. During one of his talks, he prophesied thus: “I am known by the name of Yogeshwar, but the real Yogeshwar is yet to come. When He comes, He will manifest himself here and dwell here, in the near future. He will be wearing an orange robe (referring to Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba)”. During the year 1960, Sri Yogeshwar Maharaj asked his disciples to close the entrance to the cellar and entered the Blissful Samadhi state for ever. Later, a small shed was erected in this place and regular Bhajans are held.

Mr B N Narasimha Murthy, currently the Chief Mentor of the Sri Sathya Sai LokaSeva Group of Institutions was the District Co-ordinator for Sevadal wing for the Chikkaballapur district during 1971, which is also his birth place. He had a strong desire to build a Sathya Sai school at Chikkaballapur itself in order to benefit many students of his native town. He, along with Mr N Kasturi, the State President of Karnataka during that time, thought of the sacred land where the Yogeshwara Mutt was previously existent and approached the disciples of Sri Yogeshwar Maharaj who had the ownership of that property. The disciples of Sri Yogeshwara were also ardent devotees of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. They readily agreed to offer the land to them for this noble cause. Mr B N Narasimha Murthy, Mr N Kasturi, along with Mr T Ramaiah, Mr Krishnamurthy, Mr Srinivas Reddy, Mr K R Shastry (Former District President of Kolar District) went to

Prasanthi Nilayam to seek the blessings of Bhagawan Baba to start a new Trust, christened by them as Prashanthi Balamandira Trust, in order to carry out the good work at Chikkaballapur. Thus, the Prashanthi Balamandira Trust came into existence in the year 1981.

True to Sri Yogeshwar Maharaj’s prophesy, this place became the seat for a Sri Sathya Sai Seva Samiti drawing unto itself the nearby villagers, men, women and children. From thereon, the various service and spiritual activities in the premises commenced. A Jeeva Samadhi in the form of BrindavanSmrithiMantap is built in this place for Sri Yogeshwar Maharaj, which to this date, is suffusing the environs with its divine vibrations. Sri Sathya Sai Roopa Mandir has been constructed here to conduct prayers, bhajans and other spiritual activities.

Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba says “The end of education is character. A complete education is that which makes a man compassionate”. The Trust began its first service activity with the establishment of a Kannada medium Prashanti Bala Mandira Higher Primary school in the year 1982. What can be more fulfilling than to begin with tiny tots ready to be moulded, pliable and supple that they are! This Higher Primary school was taken under the direct guidance of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba in June 2007. This school was an elixir in the lives of the simple folk in and around the town, a ray of hope for a bright future for their kids.

The journey continued from thereon to the establishment of a Prashanti Bala Mandira Girls’ High School (English Medium) in June 2009. Young girls full of energy, enthusiasm and a zeal to learn, amalgamated at the right place under the care of dedicated teachers.

“Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba felt that the education of today is paralysed by indiscipline, irreverence and futility. The only remedy according to Bhagawan was in carving out a new path, which would be deeply rooted in our tradition, culture and spirituality. Baba wanted to provide students with the kind of education that not only strengthens their intelligence, but also purifies their impulses. The personality of students should reflect the balance between contemplation and action. A distinction between Education and Educare is worth noticing here. While Education is just for a mere living, Educare is for Life. Educare is the blossoming of the divine potential and love latent in every human being by emphasising on the practice of human values. Baba often says, ‘End of education is character’. Character can be developed only by a system of education that leads to physical, mental and spiritual development in the students. Bhagawan Baba in one of His discourses to the students had said, “Teaching you the university curriculum, preparing you for examination and awarding you university degrees are only means employed for the ultimate goal of your spiritual uplift, self-discovery and social service.” Thus, a synthesis of science and spirituality is the very essence of our Institutions. Students are encouraged to develop their skills for self-help, on subjects, for profession, in social life and in their ethics. SAI in fact stands for: Social responsibility, Academic responsibility and Individual responsibility. Every student is encouraged to tread the path laid down by Baba to ultimately reach their higher goals.”

A Chairperson’s wisdom is the shining light of an Institution!

Grade 8

Hostel turned into home!

“I joined Prashanti Bala Mandira Girls High School in June 2017 in my 8th grade, and started living away from my parents in a hostel for the very first time. The love of my teachers has made me feel at home. My parents are also very happy that I am studying in a good school that teaches me moral values and makes me live by it. My teachers clarify my doubts, even if I ask them multiple times. They are very caring, and I have certainly started enjoying hostel life.”

I have witnessed the transformation of not only the students and teachers, but also the parents. The free-of-cost-education has come to the rescue of a lot of our students. Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s education mission is indeed an ideal system of values-based integral education that stands apart from the rest”.
