Later this month, Miss Tina Turner will turn 77! Throughout her life and career, she showed the world that despite life’s turmoil and challenges, you and only yourself are in control of your fate. And if you are smart enough to clearly understand the rules of the Universe, you can be in full control and like Tina live a happy and healthy life.
So today, here’s 5 tips that we learned from Tina to improve your being. And trust us, There Is No Alternative…
1 – STAY AWAY FROM DRUGS
If the Gypsy, the Acid Queen herself tells you that a life free of drugs is essential to develop your well being you better trust her. Having a clear mind in every circumstances is a ‘sine qua non’ condition to enlighten your being. And you can spend the money you don’t use on drugs on things you like, like clothes!
Get away from everything and spend some time with yourself, Tina and the mantra Nam Myoho Renge Kyo.
Original text with English signification:
“Sometimes I am exhausted and driven Lord,
Sometimes I don’t know where to go
My Mother, and Father, don’t own me
So I’ll try to too make Heaven
By Ben – Today marks the anniversary of the release last year, of the third album of the so far Beyond trilogy “Beyond, Love Within“. With Tina’s participation on a few songs, the result was once again excellent and haunting; Bringing back her gospel roots while mixing it with her buddhist faith, a challenge for Turner who add another feather in her cap in World Music thanks to the creativity of good friend Regula Curti and the work of Swiss music producer Roland Frei.
Today, we focus once again on ‘Love Within’ but with a new and special upload! The “Heavenly Home” mix version of “Mother Within’ that was not included in the album. A shorter and bit more up-tempo version of the song to put it in a nutshell!
And for the occasion and for all your delight, a new video for the song created by Ben! Enjoy!

Once again, Tina is making news with small video apparitions from her Swiss Mansion and in local newspaper:
A new video emerged today on Beyond Fb page of Tina giving thanks for receiving the prestigious TARA Awards in Bangkok. Very short but funny and of course always nice to see the Queen.
According to this Swiss Newspaper, Tina is donating Christmas lights for her street in Küsnacht. About 250.000 swiss francs but the city has to vote about accepting it or not!
And finally, a few weeks ago, Tina appeared on German tv to congratulate singer Udo Jurgens on his 80th birthday! Here’s the video thanks to Anja!
During the past week, you had the chance to win a copy of the new spiritual album Beyond Love Within, featuring Tina Turner and signed by artists Regula Curti, Dechen Shak-Dagsay and Sawani Shende. All you had to do was to answer the question: how did Tina help and inspire you on your life journey? We were overwhelmed by the many entries and all the personal stories you shared with us. Continue reading to find out who won.
In 1986, Tina Turner in collaboration with Kurt Loder published the interview-style top selling biography, ‘I, Tina’. Back then, the world discovered the multiple struggles that young Anna Mae faced during her early life as well as during her turbulent relationship with cocaine-addicted guitar-genius Ike Turner (1931-2007).
While the journalists and the general audience were amazed by the resilience and strength of the forty-seven-year-old singer, few understood that behind Tina’s success, there was a very disciplined mental training. Tina was introduced to a new way of thinking according to the rules of the Lotus Sutra: one of several forms of Buddhist-practice inspired by the life of monk Nichiren (13th century A.D.) This is the path that born Baptist Tina Turner followed since the mid-seventies, faithfully mixing it with the Lord prayers. While promoting her biography and years later Disney’s biopicture ‘What’s Love Got To Do With it?’, the question had to be asked: Would Tina be willing to write a book about her journey in Buddhism, would she tell how it could also help us overcome our daily problems and how to get to the point where you feel physically and mentally balanced?
The fans waited patiently but besides a few interviews about her faith, Tina remained silent.
