The Beatles' - Rishikesh Tape

In the middle of February, the Beatles, their wives or girlfriends, Mia Farrow, who is Frank Sinatra's wife, Donovan, another idol of the English teenagers, and the famous California group the Beach Boys went to a four point institution in India to meditate with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

Then Ringo and Mia Farrow left, while the others were still there.   They are at a place called Rishikesh, Surlayamaya.  We went to visit them when all of them were there, and we will tell you the story.

It is a story with some questions and suspense, and with some uncertainty of where the world of the Beatles is, but two songs are included.

In the film you don't see the tigers, but at night you can hear their roars in the forest, unless it was another good idea of the impeccable organization.

The trip begins at the outskirts of a place called Bombay, in India, and now arrive the Beatles.  They arrive with their guitars and their wives.  They then form a circle around their teacher and they decide how to spend the afternoon.

Sitting on the Gange River is a wonderful way to meditate.   It suggests the ocean.  Now we are going down to the sacred river for the ceremony.  The ceremony understands the offering of old and new songs.  Two of the songs that you will hear have been written in these days, but the chords are not there yet.  They took baths in the sacred water to purify themselves.

Well there you have it.  The Beatles and the Gange together, a big part of the history of India and some songs as well.  The result is a beautiful vacation, and meditation, no.  But the Beatles are intelligent, and once they are relaxed and have a fresh mind, they will find, of course, other occasions.

This is an English translation of the Italian narration from the Rishikesh tape.
