This recording shows why Deepak Chopra is considered one of the great pioneers in the field of mind-body medicine. Here he offers compelling answers to the eternal questions of identity, origin, and meaning. Chopra’s thesis is that people rely on their senses to define their experience of reality limiting their experience of the material world and making them prisoners, out of touch with realities that lie beyond the material. He explains that there is no difference between observer and observed; it is all one shared experience. Realizing this truth, says Chopra, frees people from their sensory-created prison to experience a more nurturing and fulfilling life. The author’s calm, uplifting voice gives these ideas heft and power, and his inclusion of relaxed guitar interludes let listeners pause to contemplate more deeply. Chopra expands the discussion by citing T. S. Eliot, Nietzsche, Rumi, Tagore, and Patanjali, as well as scientific experiments and spiritual texts.

About the Author:

Deepak Chopra, M.D., is the author of more than eighty books translated into over forty-three languages, including numerous New York Times bestsellers in both fiction and nonfiction categories.

From AudioFile:

Recorded in 1992 prior to Chopra's rise to fame, this brief recording is an authoritative summary of his thinking on how the mind and physical senses conspire to create barriers to a more fulfilling life. These ideas will remain difficult for anyone whose grasp of quantum physics is marginal, especially Westerners who depend too much on logic and reason to understand their lives. Listeners familiar with quantum physics may find this lecture to be more poetic than instructive, more inspirational than informative. On balance, this quality actually makes it a nice departure for Dr. Chopra, given the large number of other recordings we now have from him that are more accessible.
