RLST161 CM - Gurus, Swamis, and Others: Hindu Wisdom Beyond South Asia

Examination of variously understood Hindu teachers such as gurus, rishis, maharishis, babas, matas, swamis, and mahatmas, who have had profound influence in the West. We will explore indigenous categorization of these special personalities and modern historical developments and trends, as well as how their messages have been variously received and reshaped as their popularity spread throughout, and eventually beyond, South Asia.
