Britney: Better mother to Sean because of Hinduism

01/30/2006 at 11:55 PM ET

Kbyplw_1 Popstar Britney Spears, 24, recently caused controvery when she visited a Hindu temple a few weeks ago with her young son, Sean Preston. Britney, who was born a Baptist and has also tried out the popular celebrity religion Kabbalah, visited the temple in an effort to become a better mother to little Sean Preston.

The Hindu man didn’t recognize the popstar at first but added that, "she and her baby joined us in prayer inside our Ganesh Temple…I wrapped some Hindu cloth around them both and gave them some flowers to wear as part of the ceremony". The Malibu minister, Samundrala Krishna Ma Charyulu, also said that Britney took part in the Chendur Kumkuman practice, which involves Britney having red dye on her forehead, and her asking the minister to bless her and her baby. The minister hopes Britney will return to the temple, adding that "the whole time she was very humble and respectful".

What’s the controversy over? I think it’s great that she’s exposing her son to many religions.
