In a recent television show ‘ The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet ‘, she urged other girls to ‘ Wake-up…be by yourself, go meditate, go spend 10 minutes like really looking at yourself ‘.
Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada today, commended Cyrus for endorsing meditation to younger generations who could easily get lost amidst so many distractions in the consumerist society of today. It was a ‘ step in the right direction ‘ to make positive changes in the lives of today’s youth, Zed said.
