<a href=Shilpa Shetty" align="right" hspace="5" vspace="5" />Shilpa Shetty is observing a 'mauna vrat' (vow of silence) as part of a wellness course that she is pursuing in Oneness University on the outskirts of Chennai and says it helped her to connect with herself.

'I've taken out some 'me' time. I have been so busy with people, things and attaining my goals that I had forgotten about myself. This place has helped me get in touch with myself. You must be intrigued how... well right now am doing a mauna, that is, where I am not allowed to talk to anyone, so practicing that, it's difficult but enjoying it,' Shilpa posted on her blog.

'Not allowed to take any calls... could only check my emails,' she added.

The 34-year-old actress, who is a fitness and spirituality freak, says she seeks solace there in the company of her gurus -- Amma and Bhagvan. 'I follow their advice blindly, and it's made a huge difference in my life, work and relationships,' she said.

Shilpa has gone there for a special course to rejuvenate herself after a 'hectic six months'.

'This silence is so rare to find in our fast paced lives. It just comforts. There are no luxuries and that makes you value everything that you have. It's also a cleansing process, which I feel we all need from time to time. The beauty is that the process is a spiritual journey without preaching.

'I would prescribe this place for anyone who needs a break and a different and positive way to living life,' she said.

@ aadaa
Just because she's in bollywood means that she HAS to do movies all the time? Don't take me wrong, im not a fan of her. But w/e you said was rude. I mean i don't think she went to the media and said --> HEY IM HAVING A "MAUNA VRAT" SO MAKE SURE YOU PUBLISH THIS EVERYWHERE. <-- like what the hell? Leave them alone yaar. She's a celebrity, she is going to be in the news no matter what she does. Chillax!!!! I think she has worked hard to get where she is today, almost everyone no one should be pointing fingers without a realistic reason. Thank you!
