“Paul McCartney, Donovan, Eddie Vedder, Sheryl Crow, Paul Horn, Moby and more will perform a global benefit concert at Radio City Music Hall in New York City on Saturday, April 4, 2009, in support of the David Lynch Foundation’s international initiative to teach one million children the Transcendental Meditation technique – and change the world overnight.”
Can you imagine silent time in the classroom, where you can mediate if you want to? What a difference from when I was in school. Research results such as reduced depression, resolving ADHD, lowering blood pressure, and such doesn’t begin to tell the story of what it means to improve quality of life.
It’s notable that 3 of these guys were in India together back in the ’60’s. Last month, I wrote about a letter from that time that John had written. And it was about a year ago that The Beatles’ “Across the Universe” was beamed into deep space. Complete with Sanskrit thanks to the meditation teacher. The message lives on, past all of the players.
Should be quite the concert…
*There was another version with Anne Murray where she tried to gloss over this detail, saying the song was about Maritime perseverence.
