“I always felt that in spite of all the fame, all the hullabaloo around that time and all the time for years following, George had something which we call in our language tyagi, which means the feeling of unattachment. He had everything - all the wealth, all the fame, whatever he wanted. But he was not attached to it. It didn’t seem to matter much to him, because he was searching for something much higher, much deeper. It does seem like he already had some Indian background in him. Otherwise, it’s hard to explain how, from Liverpool, with his background, and then becoming so famous, what reason did he have to get so attracted to a particular type of life and philosophy, even religion? It seems very strange really. Unless you believe in reincarnation.” - Ravi Shankar on George Harrison, Living in the Material World
