You can live to be a hundred and enjoy each of those years as a fully functioning person--or so says Chopra (Unconditional Life, 1991, etc.) in this challenging work. An intriguing set of Census Bureau statistics cited here notes that the number of centenarians is twice what it was ten years ago- -and is expected to double again by the millennium. Prolonging fruitful lives is not a question of mind over matter, Chopra contends, but, rather, of mind and matter--mind and body--together at one with the universe. It's often hard for pragmatic Westerners to deal with this kind of mind/spirit/body talk, but Chopra has a talent for anchoring the ephemeral in what's generally considered reality, and for leading spiritual novices through the swamps of such concepts as awareness, detachment, and self without resorting overly to New Age slang. In discussing how awareness--or lack of it--affects the physical symptoms of aging, for instance, Chopra builds an authoritative base using research from Harvard, Duke, and Stanford that shows that mental, social, and intellectual activity can keep people vital and alert as they age. But because many of us have poor models for aging, we accept the idea that getting old means pain, intellectual decay, and inactivity. Bringing attention or awareness to areas of discomfort is the first step to changing problems, Chopra argues, offering a step-by-step routine to make one or more of those changes. Along with reflections on such provocative concepts as cellular memory and "metabolizing time," the author also tackles the positive aspects of aging--creativity and wisdom--and the value of those old standbys, diet and exercise. A separate chapter examines, not altogether satisfactorily, India's traditional medical system of Ayurveda. A guide to longevity that's also a thoughtful and sometimes inspiring reflection on our remarkable place in the cosmic scheme of things. -- Copyright 1993, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.

From Kirkus Reviews, 05/15/95: Guru Chopra's (Ageless Body/Timeless Mind, 1993, etc.) first novel comes up with a mind/body version of the Arthurian legend that lends great charm to familiar lore. Chopra not only creates strong prose for his lighter-than-air battle between magical forces of good and evil but keeps the pot boiling with symbols that bounce meanings off the page and a plot that turns inside out like a glove as characters shift shapes and identities. The novel opens on the fall of the Round Table to Arthur's evil son, Modred, while introducing us to a Merlin seemingly bored with destiny, then leaps to modern times as Detective Constable Arthur Callum investigates the highway death of a bearded old man (Merlin), whose body disappears from an ambulance. Arthur is assisted by Detective Constable Katy Kilbride (who echoes Guinevere), but neither of these modern folk is bound by the rules of courtly love that brace Malory's Le Morte D'Arthur. The enchantments and evil spells common to knighthood, though, do leap the centuries, as Modred in modern guise seeks out the new Merlin to destroy his power for good. Why did the earlier Merlin seem bored? Because wizards live backward through time--and know outcomes before they know beginnings. The story never takes on epic scale, but in minor mode more or less upends the detective thriller with miraculous inversions and magical events, such as a chase through a thickly branched primeval forest moved to the modern countryside, being in which is like being locked into a schizoid mind. Katy becomes engaged to Arthur but marries Ambersides (Modred), then is seduced by the succubus Jasper, who sees her as the Fairy Fay--actually Morgan le Fay--while Modred is Arthur's darker nature. At last, all the characters are splinters of each other, and phases of the reader as well, awaiting Jungian individuation. Crawling about on the web of time makes for light and lively storytelling.

In an era when people are relying on gimmicky rulebooks for snagging a date, it's refreshing to read a book that reminds us to dip our empty hearts into the wellspring of spirit. Only then will we be able to fill our lives with the love we long to give and receive. Although Deepak Chopra's message isn't new, his delivery is eloquent and original. The built-in questions and tests about projection, sexuality, and attachment are as helpful as a weekend couples workshop. Those who aren't in a relationship, but long to be, are invited to forego the cute tricks to entice a date, and instead ignite the passion of spirit, which naturally draws moths to the flame.
Based on natural laws which govern all of creation, this book shatters the myth that success is the result of hard work, exacting plans, or driving ambition. In The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, Deepak Chopra offers a life-altering perspective on the attainment of success: Once we understand our true nature and learn to live in harmony with natural law, a sense of well- being, good health, fulfilling relationships, energy and enthusiasm for life, and material abundance will spring forth easily and effortlessly. Filled with timeless wisdom and practical steps you can apply right away, this is a book you will want to read and refer to again and again.
From Kirkus Reviews, 06/30/91: Here, Chopra (Perfect Healing, 1990; Return of the Rishi, 1988) laments that ``our culture provides us with so little opportunity to confront the basic meaning of life that sickness and death have filled the void by becoming conversion experiences.'' Is there not a way, he asks, to find a transcendent meaning in life before a crisis, while there is still ample time to enjoy the life that suddenly seems so worthwhile? Chopra is an Indian-born-and-educated physician who emigrated to America as a young man and attained proficiency and respectability in Western medicine, then found himself drawn back to the ancient Ayurvedic healing arts of his native land. Drawing equally on the Indian sages of antiquity and the newest findings in biology and physics, he asserts that ``any aspect of reality can be changed...by manipulating the fundamental layer of awareness that ties all of nature together. By a simple but breathtaking stroke, if I can change my mind...then I can change the world.'' But changing the mind is not a matter of positive thinking or affirmations or the like: ``Thinking your way out of thought,'' as he puts it, ``is like trying to get out of quicksand by picking yourself up by the hair.'' A deeper process of mental transformation must occur, and the agent of transformation he recommends is daily meditation--specifically, the technique of Transcendental Meditation as introduced to the West by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Moving anecdotes of remarkable recoveries enliven the theoretical discussions, and a poetic sense infuse the language. Few writers in the crowded new field of mind/body healing can match Chopra's combination of erudition, wit, and warmth of heart. -- Copyright 1991, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
