Dance music superstar Moby regrets not dedicating his life to transcendental meditation earlier - because it's a lazy man's dream.

The thing that makes it effective is you don't have to do all that much, and, as a profoundly lazy person, I appreciate that

The hit maker admits he rallied against most things connected to yoga and meditation for years because he was raised by hippies and the whole idea of it "scared the s**t" out of him.

He explains, "I thought that TM involved ritual animal sacrifice and moving to some country and renouncing wealth and materialism".

But, after learning his moviemaker hero David Lynch was one of the world's leading practitioners of transcendental meditation, Moby decided to give it a go.

And he says, "One of the things that impressed me so much about TM whenI finally learned it was it's simplicity. It's a simple practice that calms the mind... and the thing that won me over about TM, apart from having my hero David Lynch as its vocal practitioner, was its effectiveness.

"Nothing else helped me quiet my mind and go to a calm, centred place. The thing that makes it effective is you don't have to do all that much, and, as a profoundly lazy person, I appreciate that".
