Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Chopra has good claim to be one of the most popular writers on spiritual subjects in our time."  —Library Journal

The ancient Indian text that we call the Kama Sutra was gathered in the fourth century A.D. Since then, this text on human sexual behavior has been edited, translated, and adapted hundreds of times. Now renowned spiritual mentor Deepak Chopra offers his unique take on a timeless guide to the wisdom of the body.
Library Journal
Chopra has good claim to be one of the most popular writers on spiritual subjects in our time, and his popularity has not been hurt by his productivity. His retranslation of a few portions of the Indian erotic manual The Kama Sutra, produced in collaboration with many unnamed Indian artists and the comic book division of Virgin, makes a coffee-table book out of the once under-the-mattress substance of the ancient writings. Nothing in Chopra's version would shock a modestly experienced auntie, and, in fact, the whole proceeding is very tame by MTV and Girls Gone Wild standards. Much more important is Chopra's thoughtful book on death and the afterlife, which ingeniously attempts to reconcile several faith traditions and certain modern scientific insights to show us that death is a necessary part of our cycle and that the disposition of our souls is driven by our own choices. Both books are recommended for most collections. [Life After Death was previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 6/15/06.] Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Although this book does put a great understanding for the passion between lovers, like in the original Kama Sutra, it does not quote, reference, or even follow correctly witht he original kama sutra. This madfe it harder for me to believe and harder for me to want to read because of its lack of coneection.

I didn't think my last reveiw would actually be posted I was just goofing around. The truth is I think this book does a very good job of trying to bring sex out of the dark ages and into the light of spirituality. If we are ever going to evolve as a human race then we need to fuse the dichotomy that is sex between animals and love for another spiritual being. I never felt at all uncomfortable reading it and I hope more books like this are written and sold so we may begin to really focus on the soul inside the body.
