  • Fun Faith Fact!: George Harrison's hit "My Sweet Lord" is a Hindu chant

Known worldwide for his membership in the Beatles, Harrison was one of the many musicians in the ‘60s who were taken with Eastern religions. Unlike many though, Harrison practiced the religion for the rest of his life. He became enamored with Indian culture in the mid-1960s, becoming a follower of the Hare Krishna tradition, practicing but always remaining in his western attire. Though he practiced as a “closet Hindu,” the influences came through loud and clear in his music through the use of sitars and lyrics that embraced mystical energy.
