Hollywood actress Julia Roberts is reported to be following the Hindu religious traditions. The September issue of women’s fashion magazine Elle, which has Roberts, 42, as the cover girl, reportedly says, “The entire Roberts-Moder family, she reveals, goes to temple together to ‘chant and pray and celebrate. I’m definitely a practicing Hindu’, says Roberts, who grew up with a Catholic mother and Baptist father.”
American Hindu leader Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada today, heartily welcomed Roberts into Hinduism. She would appreciate the rich, diverse and long tradition of Hindu philosophy; and its interpretation of the nature of reality, he said.
