Here, Now - Cultural influence - Netflix
Be Here Now is one of the first guides for those not born Hindu to becoming a yogi. For its influence on the hippie movement and subsequent spiritual movements it has been described as a “countercultural bible” and “seminal” to the era. In addition to introducing its title phrase into common use, Be Here Now has influenced numerous other writers and yoga practitioners, including Steve Jobs, Wayne Dyer, and Lawrence Ferlinghetti. The first section of the book inspired the lyrics to George Harrison's song “Be Here Now”, written in 1971 and released on his 1973 album Living in the Material World.
