"Within You or Without You" was not sampled on the "Ravi Shankar" tune, but on another Dub Syndicate one called "Reggae Raga" (included on one of their "Classic Selection" compilations & also on the recent "Murder Tone" disc).
I didn't know that before Mario said it above, so I put the track to check it earlier, and it seemed to be a slowed-down sampling of the introduction of the Beatles song repeated throughout the track - it sounds nice, but I wouldn't realize the Beatles connection if I hadn't read it here.
