Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar says he believes in the power of meditation to keep stress at bay.
"To me, chanting the Gayatri mantra is as important as food for living. It gives me a lot of positive energy and helps me focus better in anything I am doing.
" I believe it eliminates all the negative energy around me and encourages me to do my work better." I am sure there is some scientific technique behind it too. I recite the Gayatri mantra daily. The main thing is chanting helps the mind to function better. It also de-stresses my senses and keeps me calm,” says Akshay.The 43-year-old actor is still as fit as he was 20 years back when he entered films.
