Life After Death: The Burden of Proof

Deepak Chopra has touched millions of readers and listeners by demystifying our deepest spiritual concerns while retaining their poetry and wonder. Now he turns to the most profound mystery: What happens after we die? Is this a question we were not meant to answer, a riddle whose solution the universe keeps to itself? Chopra tells us there is abundant evidence that "the world beyond" is not separated from this world by an impassable wall; in fact, a single reality embraces all worlds, all times and places.

Publisher's Summary

Deepak Chopra has touched millions of readers and listeners by demystifying our deepest spiritual concerns while retaining their poetry and wonder. Now he turns to the most profound mystery: What happens after we die? Is this one question we were not meant to answer, a riddle whose solution the universe keeps to itself? Chopra tells us there is abundant evidence that "the world beyond" is not separated from this world by an impassable wall; in fact, a single reality embraces all worlds, all times and places. At the end of our lives we "cross over" into a new phase of the same soul journey we are on right this minute.

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.

    "Thought provoking book"

    This is excellent book to explore the possibilities of life and death. If you beleive the life after death possibilities in this book you will not only not fear death but start looking at life in a richer perspective. Shishir has an excellent narrator's voice and he made it a very interesting listen. Enjoy!!

    "Excellent"

    Excellent job by narrator. Extremely enlightening and informative information provided from Deepak Chopra. I bought this download after the death of my brother to use as a tool to help me develope and get a better understanding of my own beliefs on what happens to the soul after it leaves the human body. It was a good decision and great buy, for sure.

    "Deepak's a Master - and a HUGE help to me"

    I used to buy Deepak's paper-bound books until my eyes became so problematic that Audible became a real life-saver. Bless 'em for always carrying such a fine selection, of which this book is a serious stand-out, it's so well written, has so much to express and brought answers to me at a time I desperately need them, as I willl be finding out for myself soon what life holds after death. As anyone can imagine, I had questions, even with a solid and comfortable orthodox Jewish religion supporting me. Perhaps the nicest part is that Deepak never steps on toes, never calls into question a different belief's tenents or dogma. I suppose the best referrel I can give this wonderful book is that, while toward the end -- it did give me some things to think about, it also left me comforted and in full belief that there is, indeed, existence after death, and along with an old friend "Seth", the spiritual enitity channeled by Jane Roberts in the 70's, intimates that, at least at first, the afterlife looks about the way we either expect it to look, or desire it to. With the exception of those poor souls looking forward to a "hell", or expecting 47 virgin girls as a reward for murdering Jews, the rest of us may be able to expect a restful period where we can collect our thoughts, rexamine our lives and perhaps make plans for the next. Meeting Abraham or Mose, or Jesus or whomever would also seem to be in the realm of possibility, although Deepak didn't elaborate on the religious aspects, as can be expected - nor would I have wanted him to. He's just one of our most gifted authors and a force in my life. I don't see how anyone with an open mind and a real desire to listen to lovely possibilities that sound of pure logic, and in any case are backed up by loads of research could not enjoy this book. The narrator did a fine job, though I prefer Deepak's voice, myself. I trust no other author, (other than G-d) more than Deepak Chopra -- even with my life; and death. DALevit

    "Inspired discussion of death meaning"

    An amazing book. Very well written and beautiful language used throughout.The ideas expressed were not dramatically new to me but it was so well expressed. I was member of a book discussion group that used this as it's theme last year and it was very viable for this use. So many varied concepts ON every page. Highly recommend this book...colleen

    "Life After..."

    I felt that Chopra dealt with an incredibly difficult topic with grace and ease. His writing was flawless, straight-forward and elegant at the same time. Well worth it.

    "worth reading"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Life After Death to be better than the print version?

    This is an interesting book that provides I suppose the Hindew perspective of the after life.

    "Amazing and Comforting"
    If you could sum up Life After Death in three words, what would they be?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There is a story woven throughout this book and I loved every character of that story.


    Any additional comments?

    Listen with a open heart and mind.

    "A Little Different...."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    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...

    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 can't get through this book"

    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.

    "Life After Death: The Burden of Proof"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Life After Death to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version, but this audio version is brought to life by Shishir Kurup, who should narrate all of Deepak Chopra's books!


    Any additional comments?

    This is a thought provoking book, as has already been mentioned, and, like other reviewers, I am no stranger to some of the philosophy discussed. However, this is a book of many facets; the philosophy is interspersed with both psychological reasearch and Indian traditional tales. Shishir Kurup narrates beautifully, unusually for Audible. I was disappointed to reach the end.
