Kristen Stewart turns to Buddhism

Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart has apparently begun practicing Buddhism in an effort to get over her split from Robert Pattinson.

The 23-year-old actress is said to have split from long term boyfriend Robert Pattinson, following a difficult time which saw Kristen admit to having an affair last year.

Since then, Kristen has begun practicing the religion in an attempt to bring “inner peace.”

“Kristen has been studying Nichiren Buddhism. It’s a type of Buddhism, where you chant Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo,” a source told Hollywoodlife.com. “Chanting is supposed to help you through tough times and bring you inner peace and ultimate happiness. Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr also practice the same type of Buddhism. [Kristen] has a couple of friends who practice and they encouraged her to get involved.

Kristen and 27-year-old Robert dated for more than three years after playing Bella Swan and Edward Cullen in the hit Twilight movie franchise.

Apparently, she has also been “scarfing hot pockets and listening to Van Morrison music” to help her through her misery.

Her former British beau is reportedly “ignoring her” after the split.

Recently he was romantically linked to the late singing legend Elvis Presley’s granddaughter Riley Keough.

“[Kristen's] actually doing pretty well, considering all the drama and heartbreak with Rob,” an insider revealed to the website. “Kristen has not seen Rob since the day he moved out. It’s been hard, I mean she lost her best friend. She is still sad, but is trying to make the best of the situation.
