The Indian guru brought an Eastern (yoga) *method* to the Western world
around 1960 - I saw him at the Albert Hall in London, and was not long
after initiated.  The Beatles latched onto him quite a bit later, and
effectively trashed his mission altogether eventually.

I am preparing a serious paper on some of this 1960s stuff, but it will
take a bit of time.  Said guru was linked directly to Shankaracharya.
