George Harrison: My Sweet Lord


From the 1970 album, All Things Must Pass.

“Harrison wrote “My Sweet Lord” in praise of the Hindu god Krishna, while at the same time intending the lyrics to serve as a call to abandon religious sectarianism, through his deliberate blending of Hebrew “hallelujah”s with chants of “Hare Krishna” and Vedic prayer.”

Quote of the Day

“Much that was called religion has carried an unconscious attitude of hostility toward life. True religion must teach that life is filled with joys pleasing to the eye of God, that knowledge without action is empty. All men must see that the teaching of religion by rules and rote is largely a hoax. The proper teaching is recognized with ease. You can know it without fail because it awakens within you that sensation which tells you this is something you’ve always known.”
