Lapo Elkann redefines himself
In recent days the former socialite and Fiat heir Lapo Elkann has redefined himself as a ‘JewBu’ or Jewish Buddhist.
Commenting on his “transformation”, Elkann, who has over 21,000 followers on Twitter, stated:
“I was too much of a – how you say? – spoilt party boy… I had to define myself. I would call myself a JewBu… The connection between heart and mind that the Buddhists have is not so much a religion as a way of living a better life…. I am… a recovering addict. I am excessive. But excessive can be a great thing if you apply it in the right direction”.
