The Beatles in India
In February 1968, the Beatles went to India to find some peace of mind and study Transcendental Meditation with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Many friends came along too. Donovan, Mike Love, and Mia Farrow all stayed at the ashram. George Harrison celebrated his 25th birthday there and his wife, Pattie turned 24. The fab four spent a lot of time writing songs, which eventually became the White Album.
