Many were curious about Kanye West`s absence from the BET awards, he was expected to attend the Saturday evening’s (October 10) taping at the Atlanta Civic Center, but instead opted to skip the entire outing altogether. It is now confirmed that Kanye is staying true to his words of staying out of the spotlight for a while. Kanye West is going to a Hindu retreat in India, the star has announced he’s hoping to chill out at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Pondicherry – and Hindu leaders are urging West to take his time out seriously.
Rajan Zed, the president of the Universal Society of Hinduism, has invited West to study with him and other leading Hindus upon his return to America: “West should put into practice what he learns at the ashram. If he needs any help in further exploring Hinduism, I would gladly guide him.”
After all his troubles, Zed insists the ashram trip will be “a long needed break for him”.
The Hindu leader adds, “This ashram is located in a small coastal town in South India. Sri Aurobindo was a philosopher-yogi who died in 1950. In his view, man, at present, lives mostly in his surface mind, life and body. There is an inner being within which pushes him to a constant pursuit of a greater beauty, harmony, power and knowledge.”
