Lindsay Lohan is reportedly turning to Buddhism to get her through her spell in prison.
The 24-year-old actress was recently sentenced to 90 days in jail for violating the terms of her probation and it is claimed she is taking to the religion to help her get through the ordeal.
A source said to UK newspaper Daily Star: ‘Lindsay’s been fascinated in the Buddhist faith for a while, as several of her inner circle follow the teachings of Buddhism.
‘Lindsay’s devastated about the jail sentence, she has been crying non-stop. She’s been told to seek spiritual guidance and find her inner peace. She’s decided to study the art of meditation so she can stay calm through breathing techniques while she’s in jail.’
While our culture’s constant circus of tabloid gossip and drama has never been much of a concern here at Tricycle, people seeking to work with their minds and their life’s challenges through practice is. We sincerely wish Lindsay the best.
