Hm, my lord
Hm, my lord

Really want to go...

George is saying that he will be ecstatic to see and know his Lord. It may take some time..or not? Don't we all want to be with our wonderful Creator??

George is saying that he loves his Lord. That is to say whatever Lord that you revere. Personally, I love Jesus Christ. He is my Saviour, my Redeemer. You may interpret the song in your own personal way. It basically means that an entity exists who loves you unconditionally and is your advocate.

Perhaps George was saying get as close as you may to the God of your belief

A fine and soothing song by George Harrison[r.i.p] in the passion of searching and believing as a devoted spiritual seeker with the hope not only to know The Lord in prayer and in intellectual thought, but he believed it was possible to really see him by a vegetarian ecstatic experience chanting of the Hare Krishna Mantra belief to help him purify his soul from the rebirth in a sin. I think George Harrison[r.i.p] wasn't afraid to get closer and a little dirty to bridge the religious gap during the wild flower power days with the Hare Krishnas, being still in the mindset of the early Christians in the Bible that were more open minded about karma and the transmigration of the soul, not to participate in the animal sacrifices for food to offer The Lord and themselves that they should kill for, in order to become closer to Him towards the road ''Back To Godhead'' if you're a Christian or not. This song can confuse our understanding to assimilate in the Lord, but it also gives you a choice on your spiritual quest to be more humble if you're looking for The Lord to save you, you may not see Him saveing you, but you may become a born again Christian and realize that JESUS is the only one that truly has the power to save your soul 'cause He died for our sins to save our souls so They may truly see Him for who He is one day.

He's quoted as wanting to trick people into singing the Hare Krishna by leading with Halleluiah. Also he wanted people to see it both phrases as the same, however I've always believed the song was about suicide, or not wanting to live. I mean it's pretty cut and dry when you listen, It's spiritual but not what most people believe it to be

I'd say it's not so much about how he "Switches" from one religious path to another, but rather that all paths are leading to the same Lord. Whether you're a genuine follower Christ or Krishna, the motivation and end goal is the same.
"Religions are like fingers, pointing at the moon. They shouldn't be mistaken for the moon itself"

I think this song is about everyone's God because, we all really want to see our personally God wether we are Christians, Jews, Muslims, or any other religion.

I think it's about someone seeking spirituality and their search taking in them in different directions. I hope the last post was a joke. I feel sorry for the person who wrote it if it wasn't.

Why does George Harrison deceive people?
I wish he was still alive and asked him questions.
Why does he change Halleluiah to Hare Krishna and thinks it is the same?
I wish I had a dream of him.
What should I do?
I danced naked alone once to Chants of India and feel bad about that now.
I also thought I saw a reflection in a store window once.
What did it all mean?
I think he is sending mixed messages.
I am trying to figure out why he wants
to confuse people.
I wish I knew Paul personally and asked him.

The song is about George Harrison converting to Hari Chrishma or what ever it is called.
