The bestselling author of Ageless Body, Timeless Mind has written his most ambitious and important work yet - an exploration of the seven ways we experience God. These are shaped, not by any one religion, but by an instinct that is hardwired into the brain. In this remarkable book, Chopra takes us step by step from the first stage, where the brain's 'fight or flight' response leads us to a God who is an all-powerful and sometimes unpredictable parent, to the seventh stage, where the brain experiences God as pure being, beyond thought, a sacred presence. It is at this seventh stage that we attain a true, life-changing spiritual understanding of the world and our place in it; it is the level at which saints and sages dwell. All seven stages are available to each of us, all the time. Deepak Chopra explores mysticism, religious ecstasy, genius, telepathy, multiple personality and clairvoyance, drawing insights from psychology, neurology and physics, as well as from the great religions. The result is vintage Chopra applied to the ultimate quest.

Review:

How to Know God is a truly remarkable work and in many ways it can be viewed as a summation of Deepak Chopra's work so far. A distinguished physician and lecturer, Deepak Chopra is also renowned for the small library of inspirational titles he has authored. His core subjects are physical and spiritual health, moral responsibility and ancient wisdom, and throughout he offers an insightful and holistic approach to the deepest questions in our internal and external lives. How to Know God draws upon all of these subjects in a profound study which marks an evolution in Deepak Chopra's thinking. The key factors here are religious philosophy and quantum physics, neuroscience and mysticism. Together they form a synthesis--a seven-stage theory of how we can know, understand and reach God. The stages are a series of responses: fight or flight, reactive, restful, intuitive, creative, visionary and sacred. At each stage we are learning to understand the complexities within ourselves, our environment, humanity as a whole and the totality of existence--the totality that equals God or "infinite intelligence".

It's an immense undertaking to explain. But in 300 pages, Deepak Chopra guides us through with simplicity and skill and with a deep sense of empathy. He also avoids the rarefied academic tone which a work such as this could fall prey to. How to Know God is both accessible and easily absorbed. It's about the God within ourselves and the God we perceive around us; it's about how we can reach our God and effect positive change. No less an authority than the Dalai Lama commented, "I absolutely agree with Dr. Chopra's view that if we want to change the world we have to begin by changing ourselves". --Lucas LoBlack

Review:

"The poet-prophet of alternative medicine" (Time Magazine)

"I congratulate Dr Deepak Chopra for this wonderful book" (His Holiness the Dalai Lama)

"With astonishing insight and breathtaking clarity, Deepak Chopra has here answered the only question that has ever really mattered. The human race will remember this time in our history as the moment when the final veil was lifted from the face of God." (Neale Donald Walsch, Author of Conversations with God)

"Profound and accessible...fascinating and uplifting" (Andrew Weil, author of A Spontaneous Healing)

"A renowned physician and author, Deepak Chopra is undoubtedly one of the most lucid and inspired philosophers of our times." (Mikhail Gorbachev)
