Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

Born January 12th., 1917

The founder of the Transcendental Meditation Movement.

The Beatles spent time with the Maharishi in 1967-68, the were visiting him when they learned of the death of their manager Brian Epstein.

John was dis-enchanted with the Maharishi and thought he was a hoax, and left abruptly convincing the others he was using the girls the Beatles had brought him.

Interesting, Donovan was with the Beatles in India with the Maharishi, and I just posted Donovan in song images the other day...

Interestingly , there is no social stigma attached to talking to oneself in Japan . It is quite common , and a little disturbing at first , but then becomes quite commical . People also burst into song in public , if the spirit moves them , as well .

Is that Mia Farrow or her sister "Dear Prudence" Farrow who made the trip?

That´s Mia Farrow... I can´t see any picture on the web but it´s in the inner sleeve of "The essential Donovan" cd, or in the Anthology Beatles book, or in so many places...

...actually, I found a picture of her sister among many others (in India) but the pic is much too big and you can see nearly nothing.

By the way, Prudence is brunette...
