Pop diva Britney Spears was in the news last month for visiting a Hindu temple in Malibu, California to seek blessings for her four-month-old son. Now, there is another Indian dimension to her pursuits — yoga for “sound healing.”
The Toxic singer has reportedly turned to Singh Khalsa, a Sikh yoga master in Los Angeles, for a course of sound healing before proceeding with her plans for a spectacular career comeback.
Online sites tracking Britney say she has been spotted visiting yoga master Singh Khalsa for therapy sessions, based on the kundalini yoga practice. During these sessions, clients are exposed to sound vibrations as they lie on a special couch.
But the pop superstar maintains that her singing has only improved since she gave birth to Sean Preston last year. According to her, crooning nursery rhymes to the little one has enhanced her voice. “I’ll sing Mary Had A Little Lamb. And I’ll make up stuff... I found out after the baby I can sing!”
Britney’s recent forays have provoked Cult News to take pot shots at her. “Moving from one religion to another has become almost a daily event for Britney Spears. Formerly Baptist Britney has gone from Kabbalah to Hindu and now it’s yoga,” it says, dubbing her a “cult hopper.”
Singh Khalsa is associated with 3HO (Healthy, Happy, Holy Organisation), founded by the late “Yogi Bhajan,” who built up a considerable following in the US over the past three decades.
