Kristen Stewart turns to Gandhi for solace

Los Angeles: Actress Kristen Stewart is reportedly struggling to forgive herself after cheating beau Robert Pattinson and has turned to the writings of Mahatma Gandhi to cope with it.

Stewart had a brief fling with her "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders while she was in relationship with Pattinson. And the actress has now turned to self-help and enlightenment books to cope with the cheating scandal.

"Kristen is trying to find some inner peace within herself. And she is reading a lot. She has always been interested in philosophy and spirituality and she has been reading a lot of different books," quoted a source as saying.

"Strangely enough, the one author that has really been resonating with her is Gandhi, who she decided to find out more about after watching `Eat, Pray Love`."

"She began reading a biography of his life, then turned to Gandhi`s own writing because she was seeking solace," the source said.

"The quote that particularly stands out for her is, `The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.` While she doesn`t know if Rob could forgive her, that statement has tempered her own regret."

"The remorse she has isn`t completely gone, but Gandhi`s words have certainly helped her find peace with the whole situation. Kristen isn`t beating herself up over it, she`s accepted that everyone makes mistakes and she has to learn from it," the source added.
