Esta novela es la segunda entrega de una trilogía sobre grandes maestros espirituales. En ella, Chopra nos habla de un Jesús que no aparece en el Nuevo Testamento: la vida entre los 12 y los 30 años de este personaje que transformó la historia de la humanidad. Un libro de ficción en el que el autor ve a Cristo no como el único hijo de Dios, sino como un hombre extraordinario que llegó a la iluminación, después de atravesar caminos de desconcierto y confusión.
Chopra imagina los pasos y experiencias que lo llevaron a ese punto, desde sus aprendizajes juveniles con los zelotes y esenios hasta sus enseñanzas, dudas y recuerdos junto a Judas y María Magdalena…
Un vivo retrato de un Jesús que no buscaba ser un Mesías, sino que la gente desamparada entendiera que la divinidad habita en todos, y que todos podemos aspirar a la divinidad.

Library Journal
ALSO IN TRANSLATION Fiction Jesús. Una historia de iluminación. (Jesus: A Story of Enlightenment) Chopra, Deepak. tr. by Guillermina Ruiz. Spain/U.S.: Suma de letras: Santillana. 2009. 338p. ISBN 978-607-11-0190-7. pap. $19.99. FICTION In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus asks his disciples, “Who do you say that I am?” Twenty-first-century seekers continue to pursue answers to this identity question. Chopra, the best-selling mogul of Eastern spirituality, offers a portrait of Christ that takes a novel approach (pun intended). This work of fiction concentrates on Jesus’s “lost years,” showing that his life path and development are a template for transformation as well as union with God. Evangelical Christians as well as traditional theists may have a difficult time processing Chopra’s portrayal of Christ, particularly the overtones of pantheism (God is all) and monism (all is one). This book is a creative, literary expression. Even those who disagree with Chopra’s theology will glean insights about their own faith. Given Chopra’s popularity and ubiquity, this book is recommended for all public libraries. [LJ 11/1/08]

Su capacidad y versatilidad se han expresado en sus obras, en las cuales ha combinado la física y la filosofía, lo práctico y lo espiritual, la sabiduría oriental y la ciencia occidental. Sus libros se encuentran en las listas de los mejores vendidos: Cómo crear abundancia y Las siete leyes de espirituales del éxito, han vendido miles de copias, mientras que Cuerpos sin edad, mentes sin tiempo ha vendido más de dos millones de ejemplares en todo el mundo.


The practice of holistic and mind-body medicine has long been a controversial subject among medical professionals. Some view it as a healthy and natural alternative to chemical pharmaceuticals. Others see it as a system of placebos and new-age chicanery. No matter where one stands on this issue, there is no denying the influence that mind, body, and spirit practitioner Deepak Chopra has had on the world of medicine.

Chopra's bestselling books on a variety of topics have been translated into 35 languages. His lectures, seminars, and learning materials are immensely popular, as are his television specials for PBS. In addition, he has founded his own medical center called the Chopra Center for Well Being and has won fans amongst celebrities ranging from Prince Charles to Mikhail Gorbachev to Demi Moore to David Lynch. When financier/philanthropist Michael Milken was diagnosed with prostate cancer, he claimed that Chopra's holistic methods shrunk his lymph nodes by 90%.

Chopra's interest in alternative medicine initially grew out of concern for his own health. After moving from India to set up a practice medicine in Boston some 25 years ago, Chopra succumbed to many of the stresses that plague medical professionals. As a result, he guzzled coffee, chain-smoked, and drank heavily. Once he began studying eastern philosophies by way of Krishnamurti and Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, he became aware of medical practices outside of the sometimes limited western perspective. This awakening changed his life.

While Chopra is viewed as a major proponent of the role of Eastern philosophies in healing, he does not reject western medicine. In fact, what makes his approach so unique is the way he incorporates the best aspects of western medical research into his theories. This amalgamation of medical philosophies is at the root of self-help volumes like Restful Sleep, Perfect Weight, and Boundless Energy. Elsewhere, Chopra has addressed such diverse issues as reversing the aging process (Ageless Body, Timeless Mind), perfecting personal relationships (The Path to Love), and achieving capitalist goals via Eastern philosophies (The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success).

Chopra has also become concerned with the causes of war and violence and the principles of Eastern religions, especially Buddhism, and his books on these subjects have garnered praise from such major international figures as the Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu, and Boutros-Boutros Ghali. Consequently, Chopra continues to play a significant role in world health and world politics in spite of detractors and skeptics. With an immense body of work behind him and more volumes of wisdom sure to follow, he continues to preach the simple philosophy he is certain is the key to understanding ourselves, mentally and physically: "We're not human beings that have occasional spiritual experiences, it's the other way around: we're spiritual beings that have occasional human experiences."

Good To Know

In 1999, Time magazine named Chopra one of the Top 100 Icons and Heroes of the Century.

Chopra's father was a prominent cardiologist and an anglophile who distrusted Indian philosophies and alternative medical practices.

Despite his reputation as a serious-minded intellectual, Chopra describes himself as "playful" and "carefree."
