London, Sept 2 (ANI): Troubled singer Amy Winehouse has turned to Buddhism in a bid to find peace of mind in the hectic life she is living.

Sources have revealed that Winehouse chants the Buddhist chant Nam Myoho Renge Kyo, and follows the teachings of the Nicherin Daishonin Buddhism.

One of her musicians introduced Amy to Buddhist chanting. She chants for ten minutes in the mornings and just before she sleeps, the Sun quoted a source as saying.

Amy has also been watching the interview clip of Tina Turner chanting on YouTube and she reckons its already affecting her in a positive way.

She has a string of Buddhist beads that she chants with, which she keeps in a red silk scarf.

She says chanting is filling her life with positivity while she is trying to sort herself out, the source added.

Other fans of Buddhism include Pete Doherty, Kate Moss, Courtney Love, Paris Hilton and Britney Spears. (ANI)
