The Most Spiritually Important Entertainer of Our Time

George Harrison transformed the spiritual landscape by making eastern spirituality cool


George Harrison--long thought of as the third most talented and the fourth most popular Beatle--was the most spiritually significant entertainer we've known.



The evidence can be seen in every health club in America that offers yoga, every athlete who meditates before the game, everyone who shops at a holistic health food store, and every rock star who gives a benefit concert. It was George Harrison and the Beatles who popularized Eastern spirituality and later crafted a different role for the American rock star. He took Indian religious practices from being counter-culture weird to pop-culture cool.

"It would not have happened" without Harrison, says Deepak Chopra, the Indian doctor who himself popularized so many Eastern concepts. "Overnight they made the world aware of Indian spirituality."

How did George Harrison--"the quiet one"--end up having such a colossal impact on the American spiritual landscape?
