Hugh Jackman and his love for Hinduism:
In the year 2014, Hugh jackman gave an interview to journalist Anshul Chaturvedi of Times Group and told him that he even studied at the School of Practical Philosophy. In the interview, Hugh Jackman aka Wolverine, also said that he follows a mix of East and West in philosophies including the Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita, teachings of Socrates etc. He also appreciated Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and said that:
” I naturally sort of end up flowing towards that Vedic sort of tradition… I find it fits with me and my sensibilities. I used to question so much. I was brought up in a church and I fried my brains questioning, it felt quite limited – and as soon as I discovered more about Vedic ideas and philosophies and concepts, it felt right to me, it just felt natural.”
