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.

Something to belive in.

This is one of Deepak's best. I felt that his theories were substantiated, well-researched and gave me something to think about. Truly, this is a book not so biased about one religious belief on the after-life but a true introspective look into the syncretic nature of all religions. If you are one who believes all religions have some validity, and wish to try to reconcile that with the religion you practice, ethis could be a book for you.

Excellent

Puts so many things into perspective, very deep.
I had to keep rewinding to completely understand everything. I don't normally write reviews, but this one is a very special book.

Didn't meet my expectations

I'm very interested in life after death, because I lost my oldest daughter to cancer in 2003. After she died I had a couple experiences I could only categorize as visits from her. I got a little lost in the Quantum Theory section and did not find overall that the book helped me come to better terms with what I believe (or don't believe). Deepak is somewhat critical of those who doubt and that has given me some ideas to think about as I'm definitely in the doubter camp. Also, his comparison of those who lack belief to materialists was interesting. But it is still difficult for me to "get there"..... I did enjoy his voice and listening for the most part....

WOW What a trip into the unknown. A MUST LISTEN TO

Everytime I listen to Deepak Chopra I learn something new. He has opened new doors to the wonder of life as well as death. Thank you for a great presentation and better understanding of who we are and where we're going.

Criminal

This book is aimed at the weak minded. It is definitely NOT scientific nor relies on peer reviewed references on the topics. Chopra tells lies for money and he knows it. However as an experiment to gauge the gullibility of readers it could possibly be worth something, but the actual material presented is rubbish. If anyone believed in his 'thesis' they would be better off spending their money on a good psychiatrist or banging their head against a wall until they become rational again.

Not really about life after death, dissapointing

Any additional comments?

If you have read any one of Deepak's book then you have read them all. They are all samey This book was no exception. <br/>I think Deepak doesn't understand the point he is trying to make, he wonders off the topic into something abstract constantly. A good teacher keeps on topic.<br/>There was probably only one chapter about life after death the rest was about religious stories, very boring and irrelevant. Shame.

Chopra on his idea of Mind being an external field

Blending his metaphysics, quantum physics & unified field theories in the hope of describing how Mind is not generated by our organic brains but is a dynamic non material field we all tap into. Reminds me of Teilhard de Chardin's "Noosesphere theory. The book not what I expected re the usual ideas on an Afterlife, but intelligently delivered & inspiring. For me, as I found his theories somewhat complex I would have been better buying a printed, unabridged version.
