Victoria’s Secret Angel Miranda says her son Flynn’s favorite words are from a Buddhist chant that she recites morning and night with her husband Orlando.
Miranda Kerr tells HollyBaby.com exclusively that her Buddhist practice keeps her spiritually fit and that her 10-month-old son Flynn loves to listen to her and her husband Orlando Bloom chant.
Miranda Kerr opened up to HollyBaby.com at the 2011 Victoria’s Secret Viewing Party Tuesday night at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa, CA about her son Flynn’s favorite words, a chant from Miranda and Orlando’s S.G.I. (Soka Gakkai International) Buddhist practice.
“The whole time I was pregnant, I was chanting to my son and when I was giving birth, Orlando was chanting. So that was the first thing he heard when he came out into the world, Nam-Myo-Renge-Kyo. It’s pronounced ‘Nam-Me-oh-ho-Ren-gay-Key-oh’. And now we chant as a family. Flynn sits there and has his little beads. He loves it.”
Miranda says she and her husband Orlando are members of Soka Gakkai International which follows the teachings of Nichiren Daishonin, a Buddhist monk who lived in 13th century Japan.
“I think it’s really important to be first and foremost spiritually fit because it really radiates beauty for the rest of your life!”
“For the holidays I will be back home in Australia. I am really looking forward to spending time with my grandparents. When I think about Christmas I think about being with my family, my cousins, aunts and uncles, my grandparents, my parents and my brother. I am just really looking forward to catching up with them and this time sharing it with Flynn. So it will be amazing.”
And as far as believing in angels? “Yes, I do believe in angels. My son is an angel!”
