He took up Transcendental Meditation, and in 1985, he met its leader Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who asked him to start an Ayurvedic health center.
Chopra resigned from NEMH. He said that one of the reasons he left was his disenchantment with Western medicine, prescribing too many drugs, and feeling like a legalized drug pusher.
