Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Chopra is perhaps the most noted self-help writer living and the darling of those interested in alternative medicines and spirituality. His work marries Eastern and Western ideas, as his medical practice incorporates Ayurvedic practice into Western knowledge. He is a prolific writer—readers taken with him will want to see his 2012 title, Spiritual Solutions, as well.

Meet the Author

Deepak Chopra is a world-renowned leader in the fields of holistic health and human potential. He is The New York Times bestselling author of numerous books and audio programs that cover every aspect of mind, body, and spirit. His books have been translated into more than fifty languages, and he travels widely throughout the world promoting peace, health, and well-being. Chopra is also the Founder and Executive Director of The Chopra Center at La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, California.

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."

    The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

    The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success is easy to read and the wisdom that it contains is presented in a format that makes understanding the laws effortless. I enjoy each time I read it.
    "Success in life could be defined as the continued expansion of happiness and the progressive realization of worthy goals. Success is the ability to fulfill your desires with effortless ease. And yet success, including the creation of wealth, has always been considered to be a process that requires hard work, and it is often considered to be at the expense of others. We need a more spiritual approach to success and affluence, which is the abundant flow of all good things to you. With the knowledge and practice of spiritual law, we put ourselves in harmony with nature and create with carefreeness, joy, and love." ~ Deepak Chopra from "The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success"
    Anything is possible for you - this book is an excellent guide to helping you to truly know that!

    If you be alcoholic, read this book

    I studied this book in the alcohol & drug treatment facility that I went through and I continue to do so. I read this book more than I read the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous. Thats saying a lot. It's a great book.

    This Guy Is Tuned In!

    I have to admit. I read this book many years ago and just didn¿t get it¿ it simply didn¿t resonate with me at the time. About 2 weeks ago I was looking for something to read before bedtime and for some reason, this book seemed to jump off of my bookshelf¿ so I figured I¿d give it a second chance. Now I¿m guessing that you¿ve probably heard the saying that when the student is ready, the teacher will appear¿ holy cow¿ this was my experience with this book! This time around, I got it¿ big time! I found myself studying it like a manual for my life. Consciously focusing on one of the spiritual laws each day of the week¿ as the author suggests at the end of the book. So without spoiling the book for you by revealing all that I¿ve gotten and continue to get from it, let me just highly suggest that you pick this book up and give it a shot. And if it doesn¿t resonate with you yet, that¿s okay¿ just continue on your path to enlightenment and who knows, maybe somewhere down the road you¿ll pick it up again and it will impact you like it has me.

    My favorite Deepak Chopra book

    I've read all of Deepak Chopra's books. From some I gained much, from some I gained little, but from this one I gained the most. It's filled with 7 common-sense principles for attaining your goals and being happy. All the principles presented are profound yet simple - some more practical than others. All are concepts most of us already believe in but don't know exactly how to elucidate. This book clears it up. If you're going to buy just one Deepak Chopra book, let this be the one.

    Relevant to the present day us

    This is a simple, straight forward way for people who feel spiritual and want to move forward with the discovery of the meaning of their own lives but are not committed to a deity as described by current/modern religions.

    I have the utmost respect for Deepak Chopra, and I hope that God

    I have the utmost respect for Deepak Chopra, and I hope that God blesses him and his family. But I am sorry to say that I have not found these truths to be across the board. I have tried his suggestions and the suggestions of others whom I believe that they honestly want to help. However, the universe, God, whatever you want to call it is not for everyone, and I just have to accept that I am in that category. I don't want to scare anyone off from reading any of his books especially this one. Everyone should read it and give it a shot. You never know. But don't be surprised if it doesn't help you, and please don't blame the author. Be happy for him and the others that it does help. I'm running out of time and will be leaving this world full of hate. Not for Deepak Chopra or others like him. In fact the few moments of hope that I had were courtesy of them, and I really appreciate it. His suggestions are not a bad way to live even if you don't get anything back from the universe. At least you will not be a part of the problem that makes this world such a dismal place to live in. And maybe the blessing that I gave to others may help them. I certainly hope so because I don't wish the life I have had even on my worst enemy. Please understand that the poor rating that I gave his book is simply because it did not help me. It was well organized. It was presented very well, and is very readable. And it gave me hope for about a month that things might change for me, but then reality came crashing back in. I just can't give it a higher rating because in truth I don't know if any of the blessing or kind things I did for others had any effect, and my life has gone from bad to worse. My best wishes to all.

    Excellent support at the perfect time - take notice!

    I had been wanting to read this book for quite some time and when I needed it the most is when almost miraculously I began to read it! From the begining it seemed written for me and I got a lot out of it. Great advise on not judging every little event and feeling comfortable in yourseld and your journey. It's a very easy to read short book and well worth it!

    Not Entirely Accurate but Very Practical and Useful

    Deepak Chopra has taken the ancient knowledge of India from Vedic Philosophy and recast in a language and context that is easy to understand today. The practices and tips he provides are very useful and if followed will yield significant benefit to the reader. He has glossed over and simplified many Vedic concepts and added some New Age Mumbo Jumbo to his talks. However, this doesn't make the talks any less useful. Highly recommend it!

    self reflection

    this is a very good guidebook on how to do self reflection. it is very true that we have to look inward for the answers of life. many people rely on external objects or people to feel happy and success. however, anything outside our soul is transient, fleeting and temporal.

    Living in the moment

    This book has helped me to understand the principles of living in the moment. My favorite chapter is on Karma. Already an avid believer in the law of Karma, I really appreciated Chopra's explaination of the law and helpful tips on keeping it positive. I recommend this book to anyone searching for spiritual awareness.
