I have heard Mr. Harris, in either a talk or a debate, refer to an Indian swami/guru that has millions of devout followers who claim they have seen this swami/guru walk on water, raise people from the dead and perform all kinds of miracles. If this rings a bell with anyone I would like to get this guys name so I might do a little reading on the topic. I think it would come in handy as a reference when I get into debates with people that hold irrational beliefs. Thanks in advance for whoever can hip me to this guys name.

I think that this is the debate you are referring to….

I think the guru mentioned by Harris was Sathya Sai Baba, but I might be wrong, you will have to go through the debate again to check.
