Russell Brand wants to find inner peace

Russell Brand has started consulting a spiritual guru.

The comedian is reported to have formed a close bond with Radhanath Swami, 57, in a bid to find happiness. 

'I'm a spiritual gent,' Russell tells The Sun. 'Increasingly that's the level I want to vibrate on, were it not for my crazed lust for sex and glamour.'

Radhanath is a member of the International Society For Krishna Consciousness - and Russell, 33, reckons he's a fab mentor.  

'He's a beautiful fellow,' he adds. 'He's got the answer.'
