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.

Probably one of my most cherished purchases that I have ever made. In times of sadness/pain/happiness/absence Deepak Chopra's words/tone will bring you inner peace.
The songs and background make for an experience like no other. Explanations and clarifications of each chapter allow for a better understanding and leave room for your own guided interpretations.
I've come back to this audiobook on countless occasions and each reading brings something new.
But then again I might be all wrong and you might hate the audiobook, but you won't know until you try.
once you are past Dr. Chopra ' s lisp he actually has a very meditative voice. love the back ground music. much of the content is big but it is presented in a way that will make it stick a bit to the brain cells. for use in practical application and in meditating through conflict and anxieties.
I was not quite sure what to make of this title. The sacred texts it included are almost required reading for anyone interested in the the spiritual traditions of India, but somehow the audiobook didn't work for me.
I had no problem with Mr. Chopra's performance, but the background music and synthesizer were too much. The words have stood the test of time, I didn't need accompaniment. When I tried to listen on my headphones it was too distracting.
There could easily be a movie or TV series on the Bhagavad Gita and other vedic scriptures. Images would possibly enhance, but I also think it would distract from the oral tradition or the recitation.
Deepak is full of data. I found him mononotous as a narrator. The music in the background and narration was but out of phase.
The lesson and the metaphor is wonderful to learn this way and with Chopra's winning voice, great to listen to at work if possible.
I like Deepak as he has a great intellect and a great way of explaining things. Although I found the early part of these recordings interesting they become repetitive and I found it a challenge to listen to it all they way through.
