This is a part of Nicherin Daishonin Buddhism. quoted a source as saying, “One of her musicians introduced Amy to Buddhist chanting. She chants for 10 minutes in the mornings and before she sleeps. Amy has also been watching the interview clip of Tina Turner chanting on YouTube and she reckons it’s already affecting her in a positive way. She has a string of Buddhist beads that she chants with, which she keeps in a red silk scarf. She says chanting is filling her life with positivity while she is trying to sort herself out.”
