  • Description

    TWO OF THE BEATLES - JOHN LENNON AND GEORGE HARRISON - WERE MET BY ACTRESS MIA FARROW WHEN THEY ARRIVE IN NEW DELHI YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) FOR A COURSE OF MOUNTAIN-TOP MEDITATION WITH INDIAN MYSTIC MAHARISHI MAHESH YOGI.

    MISS FARROW, WIFE OF SINGER FRANK SINATRA, IS ALSO A FOLLOWER OF THE MAHARISHI. SHE WAS WAITING AT THE AIRPORT WHEN THE TWO MEMBERS OF THE POP GROUP FLEW IN WITH THEIR WIVES.

    IT WAS A QUIET ARRIVAL FOR THE BEATLES - IN PLACE OF THE USUAL SCREAMING FANS THERE WAS A SHAVEN-HEADED REPRESENTATIVE OF THE MAHARISHI. TOGETHER WITH MISS FARROW, THEY HEADED FOR THE HIMALAYAS IN THREE HIRED CARS AND WERE EXPECTED TO REACH THE MAHARISHI'S RETREAT IN ABOUT FIVE HOURS.

    THE OTHER TWO BEATLES - PAUL McCARTNEY AND RINGO STARR - WERE EXPECTED TO JOIN THE MEDITATION COURSE NEXT TUESDAY (20 FEBRUARY). THEY WILL JOIN ABOUT 60 FOREIGNERS WHO ARE BEING TRAINED AS MEDITATION GUIDES FOR THE MAHARISHI'S WORLD SPIRITUAL REGENERATION MOVEMENT.

    THE BEATLES, WHO ARE ALREADY WELL ON THE WAY TO BECOMING TEACHERS OF TRANSCENDENTAL MEDITATION, WERE TODAY (SATURDAY) BEING BLAMED BY HINDU HOLYMEN FOR THE DISTURBANCE OF THE RISHIKESH RETREAT BY A CROWD OF NEWSMEN AND CAMERAMEN WHO WERE FERRIED ACROSS THE SACRED RIVER GANGES IN AN ATTEMPT TO PUBLICISE THE CONTEMPLATION OF THE STARS.
