I thought the Beatles fell out with the Maharishi when they discovered him making less than pristine overtures towards the females in his camp. See the history behind their song 'Sexy Sadie' from the White Album: (song)

Not want to nitpick here but John Lennon wrote "Across the Universe" and the Beatles recorded the song BEFORE going to India. It wss the bulk of The White Album songs written during their time abroad.

Andrew, you're right. At the very least John Lennon was very disillusioned after meeting the Maharishi and did write "Sexy Sady" about this. Beatles' guru? No.
