Basic human values refer to those values which are at the core of being human. Truth, Honesty, Loyalty, Love, and Peace are considered basic inherent values because they bring out the fundamental goodness of human beings.
The eternal essences of being Human are Truth, Love, Peace, Right Conduct, and Non – Violence. The various sub-values each of these five types were guided to the students with practical examples to enable them to understand and anchor those values in their mind.
Individual Human Values
Each individual is unique and different and all need to follow the values followed in each religion. Culture may vary in each country and zone where people live but all the religion follows the various types of Human values for harmonious relationship in the society. Hence it is important for each Individual to value their family, friends, society, profession, and religion for self and societal development.
Most Important Human Values
Most of the current era youngsters are brought up with over pampering by parents and lack guidance to learn the importance of adhering to human values. The ten most important human values namely health and energy; love; gratitude; kindness and compassion; integrity; giving; growth; peace; happiness and family, friendship, and connections are reinforced in the minds of the students.
Relevance of Human Values
Values help us in (a) making proper decisions – beneficial for the society and organizations; (b) maintaining harmony – establishing harmonious relationships to promote love for mankind; (c) peace – necessary for the growth and development of society; (d) value-based leadership – to lead the society in the right direction.
Structure of Human Values
The inter connected relations of human values among Self-transcendence (universalism & benevolence); Conservation (conformity, tradition & security); Self- enhancement (hedonism, achievement & power); Openness to change (stimulation & self -direction) indicate the importance of human values.
An individual’s behaviour and attitude at a specific place alone cannot define his/her core values. Because the interaction and expressions exhibited outside can hardly reveal his/her past sufferings, pain, loss, trauma or sufferings and that may also be a cause of his/her problematic behaviour in the present. In addition to the Institutional measures taken to address the problems caused by the students, it is also important to help them overcome their unhealed feelings and emotions.
