Mick Jagger Practices Buddhism In Laos

Sir Mick Jagger reportedly blacked out the windows of his hotel room so he could "regenerate" himself.

The Rolling Stones rocker spent a week in Luang Prabang in Laos, South East Asia on his own.

The star was said to be keen to have a spiritual trip which is why he decided on solitude, and was so determined not to be disturbed he covered up the windows of his hotel suite.

He also ate in a separate area to other guests.
"Mick booked two rooms in the hotel - one for himself, the other for his luggage," a source told British newspaper The Sun.

"His room boasts the best view overlooking the mountains and Phousi Temple. But he then blacked out all the windows, even though the hotel is in a remote location and away from prying eyes. He clearly wanted to be at one with himself.

"Mick uses the trip to regenerate himself. He spent hours with monks in the temples and chanted with them. He practises Buddhism and meditation every day. He says it's the first thing he does when he gets up in the morning."
The 67-year-old has been to Laos before, and it is thought he feels a spiritual connection with the area.

He has reportedly said it is his "favourite place in the world", and he makes an effort to stay in lots of different places so he sees all aspects of the country.
