Former Beatles Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr held a concert at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall to raise money for meditation in schools.
The Beatles raised worldwide attention to meditation with their trip to India 40 years ago. AP reports that at a conference, McCartney said the Maharishi had given them a "great gift... when we were looking for something to kind of stabilize us toward the end of the crazy 1960s."
"The concert, called “Change from within,” benefits the David Lynch Foundation, which raises money for teaching transcendental meditation. UK Reuters reports the lineup included Sheryl Crowe, Moby, Pearl Jam star Eddie Vedder and Ben Harper. David Lynch of the David Lynch Foundation is a filmmaker and has directed films such as “Twin Peaks.”
Referring to meditations's mainstream movement, Lynch said, "Meditation is no longer mysticism. "It's not New Age mumbo-jumbo. There have been 600 or 700 studies showing this is good for the human being."
