Sir Paul McCartney received a ‘gift of meditation’   Leave a comment

Paul McCartneyA founding member of the Beatles, Paul McCartney has been singing about peace and love for the past half a century. In his personal life, he is practicing what he preaches.

Finding his calm in daily meditation
There are dozens of books and documentaries about him, and he has never left the spotlight after stepping from Liverpool to the global stage in 1960s.
However, few people know that sir Paul McCartney is an avid meditator.
“In moments of madness, meditation has helped me find moments of serenity — and I would like to think that it would help provide young people a quiet haven in a not-so-quiet world,” McCartney says.
The technique he uses is called Transcendental Meditation or TM, and he picked it up from the Indian sage Maharishi Mahesh Yogi back in 1968.
“It was a great gift that Maharishi gave us. For me it came at a time when we were looking for something to stabilize us towards the end of the crazy sixties.
It’s a lifelong gift, something you can call on at any time.”
