Deepak Chopra

Deepak Chopra biography details how he states if a person rids himself of negative emotions and listens to the signals from his body, health can be improved.

Deepak Chopra was born on October 22 1946 in New Delhi, India. Although initially wanting to be an actor as a boy he eventually followed his fathers, in fact families, footsteps and went into medicine graduating from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences.

His father Krishan was a cardiologist, his grandfather an Ayurvedic physician and his younger brother is a Professor of Medicine.

The Deepak Chopra biography states that in 1968 he immigrated to the United States and began his clinical internship and residency training at Muhlenberg Hospital in Plainfield, New Jersey.

In 1973 Chopra gained his licence to practice medicine in the state of Massachusetts and in 2004 he received a California medical licence.

Although seemingly successful on the outside Deepak Chopra became aware of a growing lack of fulfillment and doubt, leading to heavy drinking and smoking. All this doubt and frustration led Chopra in 1981 to read about the Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique, which he and his wife went on to learn, and a couple of months later learnt the advanced TM-Sidhi program.

The Deepak Chopra biography gives details of how he met Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in 1985, who invited him to study Ayurveda, of which his grandfather had also been a practitioner.

Later that year Chopra became the founding president of the American Association of Ayurvedic Medicine, later becoming the medical director of the Maharishi Ayurveda Health Center for Stress Management and Behavioral Medicine.

Chopra has been noted as being at the forefront of combining the modern theories of quantum physics with the ancient cultures of his birthplace.

In January 1994 Chopra left the Transcendental Meditation movement after a disagreement with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi where Chopra was accused of trying to compete with the Maharishi's position as guru.

In 1996 Chopra along with David Simon founded the Chopra Center for Well Being, incorporating Ayurveda into its system, in La Jolla, California.

Chopra's main ethos is that if a person rids himself of negative emotions and listens to the signals from his body, health can be improved. He also claims that by slowing down or reversing the aging process of the mind can increase a persons lifespan up to the age of 120 years.

The Deepak Chopra biography shows how he began writing to help spread his ideas and thoughts worldwide.

The book that gained him initial, international recognition was his first book, Creating Health, written in 1987. Since then he has written more than 45 books most of which have been translated into 35 different languages and sold more than twenty million copies worldwide.
