Looking into this man's big brown eyes can cure illness, restore hope, and leave you happy and refreshed.
At least that is what his followers believe, who say their guru can heal them with nothing more than a look that has become a worldwide sensation.
Hippy-haired Josip Grbavac - now known as Braco the Gazer - draws crowds of thousand whenever he holds one of his meditation sessions in his Croatian homeland.
At one - held in his native city of Split recently - he did not even appear in person but spoke to a sell out crowd over a live internet link.
Followers say Braco makes no claims to be able to heal, and never charges entrance fees.
But sales of his books and DVDs have already earned him millions after performances in his homeland, the USA, the Netherlands, Japan, Germany, and Switzerland.
He told one crown of devotees: "My strength is with you. I am hear to embrace you with my warmness and love. But only the spring of eternal everything will decide whether you get what you want.
"The spring is an everlasting energy that will make you happier and healthier.
"Not only you, but those close to you as well. I, Braco, will be there wherever you wish. I'll let you recharge your energy from this spring whenever you want," he added.
Followers say they feel healed and refreshed just by staring into his deep brown eyes.
One fan Katja Glavinic explained: "I felt much happier and healthier. That's why I'll keep recommending him to my family and friends."
