John Lennon's letter to a fan about transcendental meditation goes up for auction

  • Print

SANTA MONICA, Calif. - An online auction house is selling a 1967 letter that John Lennon wrote to a fan who had inquired about transcendental meditation.

Nate D. Sanders Auctions of Santa Monica says the handwritten letter is expected to fetch $25,000 to $30,000. Bidding closes Oct. 11.

In the letter, Lennon tells Jean Harrison she is "searching for something (truth) the same as everyone else."

He says the Beatles were lucky to have met Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, but that other teachers could instruct her. And he gives her the address of a school in London.

Last month, Sanders sold a contract for a Beatles concert for more than $23,000. The pact, for a 1965 concert in San Francisco, stated the group would not perform for a segregated audience.
