“Offbeat”

Deepak Chopra tries to set Guiness meditation world record in Toronto   { This article calls Deepak Chopra a ‘spiritual guru’. He wants to lead thousands in an on-line meditation to break the world’s record for largest synchronized online meditation. & while Deepak Chopra makes a lot of sense and has a lot of good advice for people -like, “Don’t buy any food in a package that has somebody’s name on it.”- He comes from a culture that would not allow him to call himself a “Guru”. There are incredibly high standards anyone would have to meet to obtain that distinction. }
