jcalla I bet John wrote it first, but I'm not sure, not sure which Floyd song had those lyrics but I know you are right. I'm sure it wasn't in Another Brick In The Wall Pt .2

I wonder if the lollipop guild in the background is Yoko. She sounds kinda like that in some of their stuff...

I like the more familiar version but it's neat to hear the alternate ones too. I didn't know who provided that interesting backup but the lollypop guild works for me. ;)

I like the other better but it's neat to hear these alternate versions. I didn't know who was singing backup but the lollypop guild works for me. ;)

and now we know why it was an alternate version.

It sounds like John's being backed up by the lollipop guild.

jai guru deva means give praise to the heavenly teacher- something along those lines. it was part of the mantra the maharishi taught them.

Guru Deva, actually it is Guru Dev, is invoked 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.

I give thanks to Guru Dev: he is thanking the spirtual teacher of his meditation teacher. "om" is a commonly used sound during meditation
