Been listening to this since I heard it on that "Harrisonette" video that features it. It is a very beautiful song which makes me think of the outdoors whenever I listen to it....

I like it, too! I can picture him singing it while sitting like this, perhaps

I just heard this today on my George marathon. It is quite a nice song. A great way to start off one's morning.

Kind of a funny song isn't it? Its great, but George's chant lyrics always sound a little goofy to me because I have no idea what he is saying.

I always liked this song ever since I first listened to Dark Horse. Fortunately, my first exposure to it had nothing to do with that marionette. a-hard-days-night-george-10

Lately I've been having isolation visions that include this song & chant. In his autobiography, George writes that the song is based "On my most fantastic experience". Here are the pertinent pages from I Me Mine (including his handwritten lyrics) and a picture of a portion of the Vrindavan temples.
