If this marks the beginning of a deeper exploration of the dhamma for Chopra, then great, my hats off to him. On the other hand, if its just some Buddhist notches he wanted on his belt, for his career as a "spiritual authority" i can understand feelings of distaste. Kind of like someone marrying your sister for 2 weeks so that he could sleep with her, knowing beforehand that he had no intention of sticking around and building a relationship.
"As Buddhists, we should aim to develop relationships that are not predominated by grasping and clinging. Our relationships should be characterised by the brahmaviharas of metta (loving kindness), mudita (sympathetic joy), karuna (compassion), and upekkha (equanimity)."
