RouteIndia: The Ashram, Beatles and White Album



The Ashram, Beatles and the White Album

1968, the Beatles made an unforgettable journey to India, where for six weeks they meditated and created career-defining music. In the hills outside of the holy city of Rishikesh, in an ashram run by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the boys wrote nearly 50 songs that made up the White Album and influenced future records.


George Harrison led the group there, fascinated by Indian culture and spirituality, and the traditional Indian music shaped the Beatles’ songs and style.
