Editorial Reviews

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

Meet the Author

Deepak Chopra is the author of more than 40 books, including The Book of Secrets, How to Know God, Life after Death, and The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success. Time magazine named him one of the 100 heroes and icons of the century and credited him "the poet-prophet of alternative medicine."

Biography

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."

    A reviewer

    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.

    not good for research

    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.
