In Life After Death, Chopra draws on cutting-edge scientific discoveries and the great wisdom traditions to provide a map of the afterlife. It's a fascinating journey into many levels of consciousness. But far more important is his urgent message: Who you meet in the afterlife and what you experience there reflect your present beliefs, expectations, and level of awareness. In the here and now you can shape what happens after you die.
By bringing the afterlife into the present moment, Life After Death opens up an immense new area of creativity. Ultimately, there is no division between life and death; there is only one continuous creative project. Chopra invites us to become co-creators in this subtle realm, and as we come to understand the one reality, to shed our irrational fears and step into a numinous sense of wonder and personal power.

"A must read for everyone who will die." (Candace B. Pert, Ph.D., author of Molecules of Emotion)
"Chopra presents a fascinating account of life after death for Westerners that will certainly please his avid fans and draw in new readers as well." (Publishers Weekly)
This is an interesting book that provides I suppose the Hindew perspective of the after life.
Fascinating on so many levels, spirituality, scientific, the collective unconscious. It is one of my favorite books by Chopra.
Shishir Kurup does an outstanding job. He was very easy to follow. It was very pleasant listening to him. He did not merely read the material, he performed it! But Deepak Chopra gave him something to convey that only confirmed many of the concepts and ideas already present in me. It is very well written. This book is very freeing and opens up a myriad of possibilities that will bless your soul.
There is a story woven throughout this book and I loved every character of that story.
Listen with a open heart and mind.
I have to be honest, a few places in the book I "bookmarked" because it was very interesting and something to remember. However, I will need to listen to this book again and perhaps a third time to understand half of what was said.... Some of the book was hard to understand and left me questioning what he just said... Overall, a pretty good book and worth the time (or two) to listen to...
perhaps older people
write a different book and not make it so technical and long
don't think so
I have a rather eclectic love of books. I know what I like and I tend not to be a severe critic. If I enjoyed it, it gets 4 or 5 stars.
I really think if this were an actual book, I might enjoy it, but I really have a hard time listening to Deepak. I admire him very much, but his tone makes me sleepy and I can't always understand him due to his accent. I couldn't finish it - I may try to find the book at the library and see if it is better if I read it myself.
Oh, the flowery language used. Lovely. Factual analysis?? Missing. This is my first book by Deepak Chopra, and I will not be buying any more. I did recieve a different cultural view on the subject, that I will say. But that is not what I bought the book for. A total waste of time and money. Not recommended. Far better ways to spend your credits! Well, we all have to buy a few duds to learn which authors are not for you!
I guess I was looking for something rigorous. I'm not that familiar with Dr. Chopra's body of work, in fact this is the first (and last) book of his I will read. If you want a text on Hindu theology on the afterlife, etc., this would probably meet your expectations. I am sorry to have spent the credit on this one, but at least now I know what Deepak Chopra is all about.
