Spiritual leader Sri Sathya Sai Baba has passed away. He died at the Sathya Sai Super Speciality Hospital at Puttaparthi in Andhra Pradesh’s Anantapur District today.

The 84-year-old was admitted to hospital on the 28th of last month with breathing and heart problems. Doctors said his condition was very critical on Thursday morning. They said most of his organs were not responding to treatment. They said the condition of his liver and his low blood pressure were causing concern.

Godman to some, miracle-man to others and revered as God by hundreds of thousands of his followers, Sathya Sai Baba had the rich, famous and powerful from the world of politics, business, films and sport flocking to his doorstep in Puttaparthi, the small Andhra Pradesh village that he made internationally famous.
