The U.S. Geological Survey is blaming day-to-day seismological changes for Sunday’s 7.2 earthquake along the U.S.-Mexico border. But Deepak Chopra, the famed alternative-medicine practitioner and transcendental meditation guru, is pretty sure he knows what really happened.
“Had a powerful meditation just now — caused an earthquake in Southern California,” Chopra wrote to his nearly 179,000 Twitter followers shortly after the quake.
And then, to clarify: “Was meditating on Shiva mantra & earth began to shake,” he tweeted. “Sorry about that.”
Transcendental meditation (TM) was largely popularized by Chopra, who’s been dubbed “McMeditation” for the multimillion-dollar profits he’s earned off books, DVDs and his Chopra Center for Wellbeing in Carlsbad, Calif. — where a six-day mind-body wellness program runs around $2,500.
