Quote:

" Guru Deva, actually it is Guru Dev, is incited in the song because he was the Maharishi's teacher. He is an actual person, and they invoked him in their meditation every day. The name actually has meaning in itself. A Guru is a teacher, or spiritual leader of sorts. Dev, according to some other sites I went to, means god or heavenly one. As stated, Maharishi's actual teacher's name was Guru Dev. John Lennon appeared to take the liberty adding the "a"on the end. Jai means, and there are several meanings I have for this, "I give hope, or thanks to", this I was told, but some sites say it means, "victory" or "salutations". Om, is probaby the easiest part to explain. Om is believed to be the natural vibration of the universe. Hence, when many meditate, they make the "ooohhhmmmm" sound. They are trying to bring in that vibration of the universe.

So all together it means, "I give thanks (victory) (salutation) to Guru Dev (or heavenly teacher), om".

That's a good song. I learned how to play it about a month ago. Check out Rufus Wainwright's version of the song(on an album called "Poses"), as it is mostly an acoustic guitar with a few other instruments in it. The Beatles version is too full of crap in my opinion.

take it back Randall. Never insult the Beatles around me man. As far as I am concerned they are the greatest band ever. I mean who else has that man albums without a single bad song. I can listen to any beatles sure some are better than others but none are bad. I cant think of any other bands like that.

When I said "crap" I didn't mean "bad stuff" necessarily. I meant tons of extra vocals and sounds that the song didn't need. I think the Beatle's version was over-produced.

Which Version? There are at least 3 official variations of the song. You'll find one to fit your needs :wink: The Let it Be (famous) version is the most overproduced of them all.

The Past Masters Vol 2, Anthology 2 Disc 2, and Let it Be: Naked versions are all superior IMHO. They all have (much) less Phil Spector.

The Let It Be: Naked verison is my favorite, the entire original Let It Be album was way overproduced altogether, Naked sounds much better. I also got the Rufus Wainwright version, it's great. His voice is awesome but I still don't think it compares to how well Lennon does it.
