Name: Mahatma Das
Fav Track: Within You Without You
“It helped change the course of my existence and put me on the spiritual path, and I eventually became a Hare Krishna devotee. Strange that it used to be my least favourite Beatle track in my younger days but is now my absolute favourite. The lyrics (or teachings if you prefer) are so deep and so true.”
“I am an egg man too! (a Hare Krishna devotee). Not much of an elementary penguin though..”
I Am the Walrus (MMT) on 14th Nov 09.
“George said this song was inspired by his first meeting with the first Hare Krishna devotees that were sent over to the UK from the USA by Swami Prabhupada. Its so full of hope!”
Here Comes The Sun (Abbey) on 14th Nov 09.
“I love this mixed version - Turn off your mind relax and float down stream and feel the life inside and outside of you by doing mantra meditation!”
Within You Without You / Tomorrow Never Knows (Love) on 14th Nov 09.
““George once confided that he wrote the song for Lord Krishna (God), but thought he had better change the 'He' to 'she' as everyone would think he had gone a bit 'fruity' (Georges words!)””
Something (Abbey) on 14th Nov 09.
“Lyrics were based on Julians collage he made, showing his playschool friend Lucy. The real Lucy died in Sept. this year, only 46 - so sad! see http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/8278785.stm”
Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds (Sgt Pepper) on 14th Nov 09.
“I was blown away by the full length remastered version. What a fantastic song as well.
After Within you without you my 2nd most favourite Beatles track.”
It's All Too Much (YSS) on 14th Nov 09.
“Jagad guru means universal guru and refers to Swami Prabhupada, founder of the Hare Krishna movement.”
Across The Universe (Past Masters) on 14th Nov 09.
“"You keep all your money in a big brown bag inside a zoo
what a thing to do." The zoo is the worlds financial system which is run by various sorts of monkeys, pigs and other animals! Our real wealth is our spirituality of love and peace!”
Baby You're A Rich Man (YSS) on 14th Nov 09.

- About me
“Married, one 15 year old daughter (who likes the Beatle too!).
The Beatles have been my favourite band since before I can remember, literally.
According to my mother before I could talk or even walk properly I used to drag my self over to the big radio which was on the floor in our lounge, and pull myself upright and shake my head to the Beatles songs (but never to anyone elses!)
I am not ashamed to admit that I have been deeply influenced by Georges spirituality, and at the age of 42 I became initiated as a Hare Krishna devotee, after being a serious follower for some years. The teachings of meditation and vegetarianism were spread around the entire world amongst the younger generation by the Beatles, more so than by anybody else.
I think the Beatles definately made being spiritual cool, whereas ordinary religions just turn most people away from God, due to all the fighting and arguing and hating etc.”
- Fav album
- Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
“Most amazing album a band ever produced. I think it created a huge shift in the consciousness of the worlds youth. 1967 was the most amazing year of the modern era, and this was the highlight of that year. Sgt Pepper still has a profound effect on people these days. There was definately something transcendental going on in 1967!”

“Apparently George wrote this track after he met the first Hare Krishna devotees that were sent to the UK from the USA by Swami Prabhupada. George felt meeting them was like the sun had appeared after a very long, cold spiritual winter. Love and Peace to all living entities, Hare Krishna!”

To FloWeR PoWeR on 14th Nov 09:
“I luv Magical Mystery Tour and the flower power ethos and am trying to keep it going being a Hare Krishna, and handing out books and flower garlands to people in the streets! Love and Peace!”
To Mahatma Das on 14th Nov 09:
“I was born in 1965 and my mom told me once that before I could walk or talk I would crawl over to the radio, pull myself up by holding on to it and shake my head to Beatles songs - but never to any other bands songs!”
