Simply they introduced Indian music and philosophy to the pop/rock world and the initiator was George. The others though curious didn't like much Maharishi or that way of life. Because of the impact of the Beatles, many people did go beyond sitars, Maharishi, etc and wanted to study deeply the Indian culture.

George helped introduce the culture and music to the rock world, but Paul and Ringo now both very much involved in it.
Meditation is something the world sure needs more of.
Cheers Greg.

You are so right, my friend. We need to philosophize more things and take it easy than going mad over every hardship or misfortune. Peace and love, right? Cheers to you, too. And to all our friends who might be reading us.

It's much healthier to be peaceful rather than hateful.
We can't always be right about everything, but we should at least be respectful of others.
We are all guilty of getting angry quick and forgiving slowly, meditation is a very healthy release.
Peace as always my friend.
