Kumaré claims that he is a fake to his followers, but they choose also to follow him. He seeks to explain to his students that he’s just an illusion, a mirage or a sign and that the guru they are looking for is inside them. Kumaré made a fairly hard job in group visualisation, including his chants, yoga movements and practices of meditation, including key practice of ‘blue light.’ His disciples are eager, because they uphold the values he has given them, to do everything that he says and does.
