The Blue Guru was jointly inspired by the gurus of the Himalayas and The Beatles.
The foothills of the mountains are hometo many ascetics who choose to live in seclusion from the world for decades at a time. Some of them are believed to be of great age and to possess Yogic powers.
Chief among them is Mahavatar Babaji who became widely known in the west following the release of Yogananda’s book The Autobiography of a Yogi. It’s said to be the only book that Steve Jobs ever downloaded onto his iPad and inspired him to travel to India in search of enlightenment, a trip which had a profound effect on him. Babaji meanwhile made it onto the fantastic psychedelic cover of The Beatles Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band album (a favourite in the office).
You’ll find a lot of the inspiration behind the Blue Guru brand reflected in many of our games.
We hope you enjoy them! Peace and Luck. The Blue Guru team.
