This portrait was taken in London, a few days after the Maharishi had lectured on Transcendental Meditation, at the Hilton Hotel, Park Lane. The band, their wives, girlfriends and several other friends attended a weekend seminar led by the Maharishi in Bangor, North Wales. During their stay in Wales, the band received the news that their manager, Brian Epstein, had been found dead in his London home.
