Publisher's Summary

In this illuminating audio experience, Deepak Chopra invites listeners to experience the therapeutic power of sound through language and music. In Volume I, Deepak explains how language forms our material reality and shapes our beliefs and behavior. Listeners are treated to a selection of sacred verses from the Bhagavad Gita that spontaneously generate insight, intuition, and inner harmony.

In Volume II, Deepak continues with a selection of hymns and prayers from an ancient Indian scripture, the Rig Veda. Filled with praise to the gods, the elements, and the bounty of the earth, the recording takes listeners on an unforgettable journey into the true nature of the universe. The more one listens to these sacred verses, the more one gains from the healing power contained within the sound of the verse themselves.

    "More like 3.75"

    The quality of the audio isn't great on the download. The sitar music overshadows the readings somewhat. It's a certian style of reading and think there is alot of missing parts from the original. However, it is very beautiful and very insightful into the some of the meaning

    "Give it a chance..."

    On first listen, I wasn't sure what to make of this because it is definitely different.
    After a while I started to really get into the narration of the Gita and the music behind it. I've lost count of how many times I've went back and re-listened to this because of the beauty of the blend of words and music.
    My only complaint is that it is too short, I wish that he would have done all 18 chapters.

    "Excellent for the Psyche & soul"

    Deepak Chopra has a soothing voice with a heavy accent, but when I just stopped trying to remember the passages and just listened this measure of healing versus and sound did what Chopra said it would do; bring me a calming less fearful and fulfilling empowerment to be who I am because there is true peace in realizing this...

    Just listen don't think understanding is within you....

    "Good Explanation"

    I have heard more traditional ones and it is usually believed that narrator should not derive his own meanings and explanations from the sacred texts. But deepak chopra really proved them wrong. This is a very good summary.

    "Very relaxing"

    I have an anxiety disorder and for some reason this audio always calms my mind. I don't know if it's Deepak's voice or the actual words. Perhaps it's just he concentration on the story. It's very metaphorical and interesting. I highly recommend this audiobook. I have one other title by Dr. Chopra which is pretty good but I like this one the most.

    "Great, as usual!"

    Deepak has always had my admiration. He understands Western minds! Also his voice is hypnotic. I was waiting for this title!

    Story
    "this book literally saved my life. no joke."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to anyone looking for meaning in their life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    there are only a few characters and arjuna would be my favorite if only because he is most like myself - searching for the right path.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    chapter 2 of the gita really encompasses the entire story. the introduction is a 20-25 minute 'tutorial' for lack of a better word on the history of language - or paleo-linguistic anthropology. this intro is immensely helpful in understanding much of what is to come but more importantly to understand how words - and language - are just energy and vibration that can be the harbingers of death and destruction but can also heal. Chapter 10 (for me) answers the question, "Who are you, God?" and the answer makes the hair on my arms stand up every time I listen to it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    a western film could not begin to do justice to this incredible translation of the gita. Deepak's translations of many of the verses of the Gita are more understandable than any I have read anywhere.


    Any additional comments?

    I cannot say enough about this book. I found it when coming to grips with the fact that my son was dying of a brain tumor and I was looking to understand why and not thinking I could handle this. I lost my son but found myself and this book was a huge reason why. I have listened to this audiobook more than 50 times - easily. I am buying for second time as I first bought through apple store and switched apple IDs so I chose to just purchase again rather than try to get apple to unlock old ID and go through waiting on phone, guessing forgotten passwords and trying to remember answers to questions I set up years ago.
