Baker also studied philosophy, religion and esoteric spiritual teachings, became a Vedantic monk for a time and later became a follower of Yogi Bhajan, a Sikh spiritual leader and teacher of Kundalini Yoga. He was the founder of a spiritual commune in the Hollywood Hills known as the Source Family. Baker was also lead singer of the commune's experimental psychedelic rock band, Ya Ho Wa 13.
