We may find no more pointed an example of this comedic pedagogy than his 1981 song, “Do the Meditation Rock,” recorded in 1982 as a shambling folk-rock jam above with guitarist Steven Taylor, and members of Bob Dylan’s touring band—including Dylan himself making a rare appearance on bass.” spotted on Openculture (a fantastic online treasure trove). Listen to this hilarious lesson in how to meditate by famous beat poet, Allen Ginsberg!
