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.

    "Definately not about life after death"
    What disappointed you about Life After Death?

    I thought I was buying a book about life after death and it didn't come close. I felt tricked into buying this book. I would have called this book "My thoughts about reincarnation and other assorted topics" I want a refund and I want Audible to tell it's clients THIS BOOK IS NOT ABOUT LIFE AFTER DEATH.


    Has Life After Death turned you off from other books in this genre?

    It has turned me off for good from ever buying anything that has Deepak Chopra's name on it.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Shishir Kurup’s performances?

    He agreed to read this mumble jumble about everything except life after death so no I won"t.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Life After Death?

    The title needs to be changed.


    Any additional comments?

    I wonder if Audible will give me another credit to make up for this waste of time product

    "Take pauses and bows"

    Mr. Chopra has a lot to say. As with many of his multi dimensional books he covers vast amounts of ground. Pause to contemplate several beautifully deep theories and open a new world of understanding. T. Montuori - upstate NY

    "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.

    "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...

    "Boring"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Personal experiences of Mr Chopra would have interested me. This book is a bunch of theories from various scriptures - that might help in classroom for some. Felt its a waste of time.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    some real Biographies


    Would you be willing to try another one of Shishir Kurup’s performances?

    yes , he was good

    "boring!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    perhaps older people


    What could Deepak Chopra have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    write a different book and not make it so technical and long


    Would you be willing to try another one of Shishir Kurup’s performances?

    don't think so

    "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.

    "Disappointing"

    I guess I was looking for something rigorous. I'm not that familiar with Dr. Chopra's body of work, in fact this is the first (and last) book of his I will read. If you want a text on Hindu theology on the afterlife, etc., this would probably meet your expectations. I am sorry to have spent the credit on this one, but at least now I know what Deepak Chopra is all about.

    "Waste of Time and Money"

    Oh, the flowery language used. Lovely. Factual analysis?? Missing. This is my first book by Deepak Chopra, and I will not be buying any more. I did recieve a different cultural view on the subject, that I will say. But that is not what I bought the book for. A total waste of time and money. Not recommended. Far better ways to spend your credits! Well, we all have to buy a few duds to learn which authors are not for you!
