According to the actress, “to be religious it does not mean that I am getting renunciation. I don’t want my mind to become a slave. Our mind get stuck in all the wrong things of the world like money, fame, materialism etc. and we become slave of all these things.”
“I want to stay with all these things but I don’t want to become a slave. I have come to know the problems. Now I want to find the solutions of my mind and want to be a best person.
That is why I am practicing Buddhism. I am doing chanting these days. There is a mentor in Japan who gave path of spirituality.
Also, I am reading the book “Power of Now” by which I can really understand the meaning of the life and happiness.” she added.
