INNER LIGHT

Winnie TX

In his biography Harrison claims that the song was inspired by a letter from Juan Mascaró a Sanskrit scholar at Cambridge University which stated
"... might it not be interesting to put into your music a few words of Tao Te Ching, for example number 48, page 66 of the book."
Harrison states: "In the original poem, the verse says 'Without going out of my door, I can know the ways of heaven.'
And so to prevent any misinterpretations — and also to make the song a bit longer — I did repeat that as a second verse but made it:
"Without going out of your door/You can know all things on earth/ Without looking out of your window/ You can know the ways of heaven" — so that it included everybody".
