Deepak Chopra

"A doctor, philosopher, speaker, and prolific writer, Deepak Chopra is considered one of the world's greatest leaders in the field of mind-body medicine. Chopra is the author of more than 35 books, and more than 100 audio, video, and CD-ROM titles. His works have been published in dozens of languages throughout the world. In 1995, he founded the Chopra Center for Well Being in California. The Chopra center aims to serve as a formal vehicle for the expansion of his healing approach through the integration of western and eastern techniques. Ageless Body, Timeless Mind (1993), The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success (1994) and How to Know God (2000) are among his most enduring and classic works." [1]

Before launching his own career he "had been one of the Maharishi's top assistants". [2] "Maharishi Ayur-Veda Products International (MAPI) sells a raft of herbs, teas, oils, incense, and natural food substances said to cure diseases and reverse aging. Admirers of the best-selling books on “quantum healing” by Boston’s Deepak Chopra may be surprised to know that he is a TM booster with close ties to MAPI, president of a Maharishi Vedic University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and owner of an Ayur-Vedic clinic in Boston. In 1989 His Holiness awarded Chopra the title of “Lord of Immortality of Heaven and Earth.”"[3]
