The mega star Rajnikanth who is known for his larger than life movies recently said that he is more a spiritualist more than an actor. The 66-year-old actor said that he places spiritualism above fame, money and name as spiritual power is unmatchable.
"I would like to call myself a spiritualist more than an actor. I believe spiritualism is above everything and I would choose it over name, fame and money because spiritualism gives you power and I love power," Rajinikanth said on Saturday on the sidelines of the book launch of Deiveega Kadhal, the Tamil version of The Divine Romance.
The book has been written by Paramahansa Yogananda.
Talking about the first guru in his life, the superstar mentioned the spiritual discourses he attended as a child, courtesy his brother Satyanarayana Gaekwad.
"My brother was my first guru who introduced me to spiritualism at a very young age. He later even enrolled me into Ramakrishna Mission," he said, and added that his second guru was Ramakrishna Paramahamsa.
He went on to add that he learnt about social problems through Dayananda Saraswathi, and about searching oneself via Ramana Maharishi.
