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.

    "well done. I will listen many times"

    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.

    "Too Much Distraction"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    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.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Doesn't apply.


    What aspect of Deepak Chopra’s performance would you have changed?

    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.


    Could you see Sacred Verses, Healing Sounds, Volumes I and II being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    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.

    "Valuable data"

    Deepak is full of data. I found him mononotous as a narrator. The music in the background and narration was but out of phase.

    "Wonderful"

    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.

    "Interesting but not great"

    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.

    "Extremely disappointing"

    Extremely disappointing audiobook. Cannot think of such poor work by Dr Deepak Chopra.

    "Doesn't work for massage"

    I was hoping for something I could use as massage music and this wasn't it.
