Tom Petty was laid to rest in a private ceremony that took place yesterday at Pacific Palisades, California’s Self-Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine. The center is a known yoga retreat as well as where the funeral for shamanic Beatles great George Harrison, who died in 2001, was held. Harrison and Petty were bandmates in the short-lived Traveling Wilburys, a supergroup that also included Bob Dylan, the late Roy Orbison, and Jeff Lynne. Petty died of cardiac arrest on October 22, 2016 in Los Angeles, and was 66 at the time.

While the ceremony was private and closed to the public, Petty’s daughter AnnaKim Violette Petty posted multiple photos of the service on her Instagram.
