|Actress Shilpa Shetty has taken a break from the usual hustle and bustle of her work and gone down south for spiritual rejuvenation at the Oneness University just outside Chennai.
The leggy beauty is presently observing a maun vrat (a vow of silence) which is part of the wellness course she’s taking at the university. Shipa isn’t finding it easy to abstain from talking but she’s begun to enjoy the silence.
“I’ve taken out some ‘me’ time. I have been so busy with people, things and attaining my goals that I had forgotten about myself. This place has helped me get in touch with myself. You must be intrigued how... well right now am doing a mauna, that is, where I am not allowed to talk to anyone, so practicing that, it’s difficult but enjoying it,” Shilpa wrote on her blog, www.shilpashettylive.com/blog.
The actress, who has recently been scotching the rumours of her marriage to beau Raj Kundra by this year end, added that her spiritual break is like “a cleansing process” that doesn’t involve much preaching on part of the gurus.
“This silence is so rare to find in our fast paced lives. It just comforts. There are no luxuries and that makes you value everything that you have. It’s also a cleansing process, which I feel we all need from time to time. The beauty is that the process is a spiritual journey without preaching,” the 34-year-old actress wrote.
Shipa said her two gurus, Amma and Bhagvan, have made a great difference to her life.
“I follow their advice blindly, and it has made a huge difference in my life, work and relationships,” she wrote.
