Posted By Kaptain Kush

Spirituality has had a positive impact on people’s lives. People who’ve struggled with addictions, abusive marriages, and even depression have found solace in their faith. 

With that being said, many believe celebrities are hedonistic and couldn’t possibly understand the complexities of spirituality. But that can’t be further from the truth. Today, we discuss five celebrities who have embraced their faith and how it’s helped them through life’s challenges.

Over the years, Russell began to see the error of his ways and that drugs and sleeping around weren’t bringing him any form of joy. He was also diagnosed with ADHD and bipolar, where he would experience extreme mood swings. 

After going to rehab for his addictions, Russell decided to read books on the most prolific historical figures, such as Jesus, Gandhi, and Malcolm X, to understand their journey. He changed his life around and started embracing the Hare Krishna movement. 

Brand now practices meditation and works on his inner strength and happiness. He stated that yoga and other Hindu practices helped him find peace. 

Tina Turner  

You may know the late and legendary Tina Turner as the sassy rhythm and blues singer who gave us songs like Nutbush City and Private Dancer. But Tina’s life wasn’t always glitz and glamor. The singer met her then-husband, Ike Turner, at a performance by his band The Kings of Rhythm. 

Turner soon became part of the act and married Ike in 1962. But her marriage to Ike was brutal. In interviews and books, Tina described her marriage as being extremely violent. She endured sexual assault, broken bones, and arguments about finances. Fortunately, she escaped Ike one evening in 1976 while he slept. 

Three years before she escaped Ike, she was introduced to Nichiren Buddhism, which helped her through difficult times. Tina also went on to say that Buddhism saved her life. During her spiritual practice, she would chat Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, which helped her connect to the happiness and wisdom within herself. Years later, Tina remarried and moved to Switzerland, where she lived a peaceful life until her passing in May 2023.
