But lest we forget, The Beatles had already proven themselves 
extremely good and powerful allies to MMY. Remember how in 
September/October 1967 George Harrison & John Lennon tried their 
damnedest to defend MMY and his teachings & whilst doing so proved 
they had a very full grasp on their subject? (The audio files of 
these shows make very instructive listening.) 

But whatever stresses John Lennon suffered at the time, (marital 
friction, Yoko Ono writing him odd letters, peer pressure to 'turn 
on', entourage pressure to get back home, misunderstandings and 
disputes about the making of the movie,,,,,  Robert Stigwood 
interested in managing The Beatles!.... whatever!! ..), John was 
still the undisputed leader of the world's most successful pop group 
ever, and if he had wanted to stay with MMY, he most certainly would 
have done so! 

Having spent several weeks with MMY in India John finally got the 
idea to challenge MMY on his own turf - i.e. in the area of 
consciousness, and it appears that MMY was found lacking, not as 
cosmically conscious as John Lennon had been led to believe. 
(I really applaud John for his balls to stand up to MMY).
It is all too obvious that John wanted spiritual gifts such as he had 
found discussed in 'Autobiography of a Yogi', but it became all too 
apparent that MMY was in no position to grant such boons, so John 
quit ..... & later was shot by Chapman who had convinced himself that 
his idol did not exemplify higher awareness. Ironic or what?

Oh, enough already, enough of the R G bhajee.....
