Each year, Maharishi had a course for Westerners who wanted to become Transcendental Meditation instructors.
Although I wasn't going to become an instructor, I wanted to go and have a heavy dose of meditation. John came, and Paul came after him, and then Richard [Starkey] followed with fifteen Sherpas carrying Heinz baked beans.
Rishikesh is an incredible place, situated where the Ganges flows out of the Himalayas into the plains between the mountains and Delhi. There is quite a heavy flow of water coming out of the Himalayas, and we had to cross the river by a big swing suspension bridge.
Maharishi's place was perched up on a hill overlooking the town and the river.
It was comprised of about eight or ten acres. There was a kitchen with some outdoor seating and tables where we would all have our breakfast together. Nearby there was a large covered area with a platform where he'd give lectures. George Harrison Anthology Starr was the first to leave, claiming that the food at the camp was unsuitable for his allergies.
McCartney left shortly afterwards, having only intended to stay for a fixed period. One day Maharishi needed to get to New Delhi and back for something, so someone suggested a helicopter.
When it arrived we all trooped down, a bouncing line of devotees, coming down a narrow dusty track to the Ganges, singing, being delightful. Very like the Hare Krishnas, marvellous, chatting away.

It was later claimed that the story was concocted by Magic AlexLennon's friend, who felt his influence among The Beatles had been waning since they took up with Maharishi. There was a big hullabaloo about him trying to rape Mia Farrow or trying to get off with Mia Farrow and a few other women, things like that.
And we went down to him and we'd stayed up all night discussing, was it true or not true.Transcendental Meditation comes from the Vedic tradition and was introduced by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
