Followers are mourning the loss of an iconic Indian religious figure today: Shri Sathya Sai Baba died on Sunday in his home town of Puttaparthi in South India. At least a million devotees are expected to pilgrimage to the ashram to pay their respects to the guru and mystic who preached religious unity and ecumenicalism. But Shri Sathya Sai Baba was more than just a preacher – for his millions of followers worldwide he was a divinity incarnate, a “god-man” for more than 50 years.

Joining us now Dr. Tulasi Srinivas, assistant professor of Antrhopolgoy at Emerson College and author of “Winged Faith: Rethinking Globalization and Religious Pluralism through the Sathya Sai Movement.”
