Posted on 04/07/2010 5:03:48 AM PDT by Red in Blue PA
(April 5) -- 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."

sounds more like he was kidding
- I - caused the quake!
(Sorry about that)
Don’t think he would kid about a major earthquake....could be wrong, but I don’t think so.
You know, if he claimed responsibility for a quake in Iran, they would come after him.
[insert low whistle here]....boy, talk about an inflated view of “self”. How Obama-ish.
Because DC is an Obama-worshipping leftist, this won’t become the national laughingstock it deserves to be
This guy is a big enough assclown to run for Congress.
It does sound like a joke, however just the fact that people are unsure is a real let on to how most people view these “guru” types :)
Danny Glover says they’re caused by global warming. Who can we believe?
Well, if he admits it, there is only one recourse, he must be held responsible for compensating for all the damage it caused.
He should really figure out a way to have quakeless meditations, or else give them up for the good of mankind.
Oh don't "kid" yourself. :) He teaches that stuff to the same credulous types who are capable of believing anything (such as, "Obama is the messiah")
This is the same con-artist that hoodwinked JAWA.

Deepak deceptively sneaked past peer review a manuscript promoting medical claims such as "yogic flying." claiming that, by mastering this technique, people can develop the ability to walk through walls, make themselves invisible, develop the "strength of an elephant," reverse the aging process, and fly through the air without the benefit of machines. In addition, claims are made that if people engage in yogic flying in large groups they can prevent bad weather, traffic fatalities, and even war.
So, from what this grifter says he did all by himself in his "tweet" to his adoring followers, it appears he can just go "solo" and doesn't need to be part of a large group of yogic fliers to accomplish these amazing feats. /s bttt
At least four people were killed. Shouldn’t he be charged with murder or manslaughter at least?
I knew he was a hukster, but I guess he’s nuttier than I thought.
Known as both the destroyer and protector, Shiva is the third member of the Hindu trinity or Trimurti that includes Shakti the creator and Vishnu the preserver. Shiva, whose name means the auspicious one in Sanskrit, is viewed as a positive force because he destroys evil, ignorance, and death. He also ensures the cycle of life because his destruction of negativity clears the way for renewal and growth.
One of the most complex ancient gods in the Hindu pantheon, Shiva takes many often paradoxical forms. As the god of the yogis, Shiva is an ascetic, celibate, and self-controlled. The ascetic Shiva is usually portrayed deep in meditation on top of Mount Kailash in the Himalayas. In his role as a householder, Shiva has a consort, Parvati (Shakti), with whom he has two sons: Ganesha, the remover of all obstacles; and Skanda, god of war.
One of the most popular representations of Shiva is as Nataraja, the lord of the dance. As Nataraja, he dances in a ring of flames atop the back of a tiny demon named Apasmara-Purusha, who symbolizes ignorance, laziness, and evil thoughts. Natarajas dance symbolizes the rhythm of the universe and the cycles of creation and destruction.
In images of Shiva, the water flowing from his hair represents the River Ganges, considered a goddess in Hindu mythology. According to legend, when Ganga came down from the heavens, the earth was overwhelmed with torrential floods. Shiva offered to serve as a conduit so that human beings could benefit from the purifying water without drowning in it. It is also said that Shivas skin is blue because when Ganga flooded the earth, he swallowed the poison that was churned up in the oceans, thus saving the universe.
The snake coiled around Shivas neck represents kundalini or the spiritual energy of life. In one hand he holds a trident symbolizing his power to destroy evil and ignorance. The three prongs of the trident stand for Shivas fundamental powers: will, action, and wisdom. Shiva also holds a drum that resonates with the sound Om the universal sound of creation in Vedic philosophy.
What a total L O O N! (with a following of 179,000 other L O O N S!)
Is Barack Obama the Messiah?
"... a light will shine through that window, a beam of light will come down upon you, you will experience an epiphany ... and you will suddenly realize that you must go to the polls and vote for Obama" ~ Barack Obama Lebanon, New Hampshire. January 7, 2008.
with thinking like that no doubt he’ll be appointed one of Obama’s Czars soon
These are the same utopians who are contemptuous of traditional religious influence in public life.
Their belief in evolutionary spiritualism is not based in Christianity. It is precisely the deceit clarified in Genesis as the knowledge of good and evil. They are, in Judeo/Christian terms, practitioners of cultic demonism. Both the Old and the New Testements claim that God hates their treachery.
“One of the most important developments of our time, I would argue, is the growth, as a consequence of the rapid decline of Christianity, of irrationalist substitutes for it....When you expel the priest, you do not inaugurate the age of reason; you get the witch doctor.”
I wonder if he can cause Guam to capsize?
“Both the Old and the New Testements claim that God hates their treachery.” ~ AtP
And I include Obama’s latest “spiritual advisor” (to replace Jeremiah Wright), into that mix.
Jim Wallis, like all Marxist redistributionists, reminds me of Judas:
Verse 5: Judas said, “Why was this fragrant oil not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?
(He, like the Marxists today, quote the Scriptures that say things like: Since therefore there will never cease to be some in need on the earth, I therefore command you, Open your hand to the poor and needy neighbor in your land. [Deuteronomy 15:11], to justify his secret greed.
Verse 6: (Judas) did not say this because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief; as keeper of the money bag, he used to help himself to what was put into it!
(From the very beginning, Jesus referred to Judas as a devil (John 6:70-71). Jesus warned His disciples Judas was not loyal, he was not to be trusted, and he would actively work against Him.)
Verse 7: Jesus said to Judas: “Let her alone; (this perfume is her private property and she may do with it as she chooses); she has kept this for the day of my burial. (Of course Jesus said this in spite of knowing the Scriptures such as Judas would quote).
Verse 8: Jesus continued: For the poor you have with you always, but me you do not have always.
Judas - and other “social justice” Marxists like Jim Wallis - find Scriptures like this quite inconvenient for their agenda: “You shall do no injustice in judgement. You shall not be partial to the poor (pervert justice by favoring the poor), nor honor the person of the mighty. But in righteousness you shall judge your neighbor.”. Leviticus 19:15
“..But the “theologies of liberation”.. go on to a disastrous confusion between the poor of the Scripture and the proletariat of Marx.” ~ Pope Benedict XVI
Deepak Chopra is a *Terri killer* (my term): anyone who was FOR the killing of Terri Schiavo. Therefore, I won’t listen to anything he has to say on any subject.
