Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A must read for everyone who will die. -Candace B. Pert, Ph.D., author of Molecules of Emotion

“A penetrating and insightful investigation into the greatest mystery of existence. This is an important book because only by facing death will we come to a deeper realization of who we are. -Eckhart Tolle, author of The Power of Now

If I had any doubts about the afterlife, I don't have them anymore. Deepak Chopra has cast his inimitable light on the darkened corners of death. I think this is his greatest contribution yet. -Marianne Williamson, author of The Gift of Change

Deepak Chopra . . . takes us to the edge of our own deepest inner truth about life after death by sharing with us his vision and his wisdom, which, as always, is breathtaking, healing, and soul-opening. -Neale Donald Walsch, author of Home with God: In a Life That Never Ends

Deepak Chopra has written a masterpiece that is long overdue in our spiritual culture. Life After Death: The Burden of Proof is a bold and comforting guide into the afterlife. -Caroline Myss, author of Anatomy of the Spirit and Sacred Contracts

By marrying science and wisdom in Life After Death, Chopra builds his case for an afterlife in which our most essential self, the seer that observes our experiences in this temporary home that we call the self, uses the end of this lifetime to pass over into the next. This is an intellectual and spiritual tour de force. -Professor Robert Thurman, Columbia University, author of Infinite Life and The Tibetan Book of the Dead

From the Hardcover edition.

Synopsis:

Deepak Chopra has touched millions of readers 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 cocreators in this subtle realm, and as we come to understand the one reality, we shed our irrational fears and step into a numinous sense of wonder and personal power.

From the Hardcover edition.

Synopsis:

The best-selling author of The Book of Secrets explores the mysteries of life after death, interweaving scientific research and the wisdom of ancient Vedanta sages to describe what happens to us when we die and to build a case for an afterlife. Reprint. 125,000 first printing.
