Bill Clinton is using Buddhist Meditation and is a vegan!

http://www.thebuddhism.net/2013/01/10/bill-clinton-turns-to-the-art-of-buddhist-meditation/

Former American president Bill Clinton has taken his exercise regime to spiritual heights – by learning the art of Buddhist meditation to help him relax.

The politician, 65, has recently taken up a healthier life-style including becoming vegan after a string of heart problems over the years.

And in his latest bid to improve his well-being, the Democrat has hired his own personal Buddhist monk to help him learn how to meditate properly.

Radaronline quoted a source as saying: ‘Ever since his heart scare, Bill has looked for ways to help him relax.

‘He has a hectic life, he travels a lot on business as an ambassador for the U.S. and needs something to keep him sane.

‘Meditation offers him that, he has a mantra that he likes to chant and after every session he feels transformed and full of positive energy.

3. When I give orientation talks to new people at the Center

wanting to relax is a common reason they give for coming.

Sometimes that's a byproduct, I tell them
