Yeah, this is hinduism, which regards depersonalization as their enlightenement.Perhaps meditation can trigger DPDR experiences for some people, but I wouldn’t say that DPDR experiences are what buddhists are seeking.

Unfortunately depersonalization disorder is also a possible side-effect of mindulness meditation.
I think not even buddhists themselves know what they mean by "enlightenment" and my guess is that even between different buddhist schools (e. g. theravada, zen, tibetian buddhism) there is no universal agreement on what enlightenment is supposed to be.This misconception is very widespread, perhaps because buddhists say that “reality is an illusion” which doesn’t help with this confusion. They mean that reality is an illusion in the sense that concepts are not tangible stuff.
Michal is heavily promoting mindfulness meditation as a treatment for depersonalization disorder. However I'm quite sceptical about it. I read several reports about people who spent months in his clinic and likely meditated every day, but I do not remember anyone benefiting from it.I also wouldn’t say that meditation is an antidote to DPDR either. It certainly wasn’t for me. But to me it is definitely going more in the direction of being present and perceiving reality.
On the other hand there is one case, where meditation had a temporary effect:
