Parents of Eminem fans can relax as the controversial rapper may actually be preaching a more peaceful Eastern philosophy with his lyrics.

According to pagesix.com, author Perry Garfinkel in his new book Buddha or Bust says that Buddha's philosophy is cryptically encoded in Eminem's hit song Lose Yourself. The line "You better lose yourself in the music, the moment" actually "mirrors the Buddhist meditative practice of mindfulness, in which the practitioner lives in the here and now. By being present in the moment, he finds himself".

He adds: "I highly doubt Eminem would know a boddhisatva from a bodacious babe."
