Los Angeles: Singer Courtney Love has compared practicing Buddhist chants to doing sit ups and admits that while she thanks the faith for turning her life around, she sometimes gets bored of meditating.
“Oh, all of it, just all of it. There are no more drugs. What really saved me, obviously, was going to meetings and stuff like that but I’m a Buddhist, I chant and I’m really serious about it,” she told chat how host David Letterman when asked what her drug of choice was during her wild years, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“I’m a Nichiren Buddhist so I sit there in the morning (chanting) and it’s really changed my life…Turned everything around,” she added.

Quizzed on how long she chants for, she said: “As much as I can, an hour… It’s like doing sit ups. I get bored too.”
Love also opened up about her daughter Frances Bean, whom she had with the late Kurt Cobain before his suicide in 1994, and the documentary she’s made about his life.
“She’s absolutely great, she’s 22… She’s 22 years old. She’s brilliant. She’s an executive producer on this documentary about her dad…It’s very moving and I’ve seen it three times. I’m probably not going to see it again, it’s too much,” she said.
