Sri Sathya Baba has emphasised that proper study of Mankind is Man. His principles are based on five concrete pillars i.e. Sathya, Dharma, Prema, Shanti and Ahimsa. He regarded human beings as the supreme creation of God and that the human values are the essence of human being and each one should have opportunity not only to realise this inherent divinity but also the blossoming of human excellence.
The Preamble to the Constitution of India guarantees every Indian to excel in Human Excellence beyond caste, colour, creed, denomination and religion. India being a secular country is a boon to its people and the Judiciary has been custodian of human values and has played an important role in sustaining and upholding not only the Constitutional Rights of the citizens of India but also expanding the rights of its citizens.
With passage of time and the changing social mores it is necessary to re-emphasize the role of judiciary in upholding human values, and its core responsibility to strengthen the principles and values enshrined in the Constitution of India.
