Re: Tales from Topographic Oceans.

I thought his review and observations of this Yes masterpiece were spot on.
he is a little confused about the meaning of many of the lyrics... yes Jon could babble a bit,
but those words he wrote were fully inspired by Hindu philosophy, rishi study and the writings
of Sri Paramahansa Yogananda. http://www.yogananda-srf.org/py-life/index.html
and his book Autobiography of a Yogi... http://www.yogananda-srf.org/ay/index.html

Jon even briefly mentions the book in the Tales liner notes, even though he references the wrong page numbers...
he says he was influenced by a footnote. It is clear by the lyrics that Jon read the whole book to be so inspired.

I highly recommend reading it.
