Jennifer Aniston is seeking solace in the teachings of late revered spiritual leader Mahatma Gandhi following her split from husband Brad Pitt earlier this year (JAN05).

The former FRIENDS star has reportedly transformed her lifestyle after a confidante presented her with a book of the Indian philosopher's teachings, and she is especially interested in learning Gandhi's doctrines of self-sufficiency and fearlessness.

A source tells British newspaper the Daily Mirror, "Because of the book she is re-evaluating her life.

"She's undergone a major life-change so she's got the chance to experiment."
