Deepak Chopra's new book takes its title from a famous quotation by Mahatma Gandhi: 'There is no way to peace. Peace is the way.' Mere variations on the theme of conflict will never get us where we want to go. We must take an evolutionary leap into a new way of being. According to Dr Chopra, war is a deeply engrained habit that needs to be replaced. And beyond that, 'If the way of peace is to succeed, it must offer a substitute for everything war now offers.' More than this, Chopra contends that the majority of people have already evolved beyond war. The way of peace is the next step in their journey of personal growth. War is an outlet for fear, a stage for the enactment of courage and heroism, a display of machismo, and the contest of good versus evil. PEACE IS THE WAY shows how each of us can end our need for these things. This stimulating new book offers a seven-step programme for changing the reader's consciousness. War ends with one person at a time, Chopra argues, and if enough people expand their awareness, we will reach critical mass, at which point the entire consciousness of the planet can shift away from war forever. Inspiring, thoughtful, timely and skilfully-crafted, PEACE IS THE WAY is reminiscent of HOW TO KNOW GOD in its scope and vision for the future of the world. 'I absolutely agree with Dr Chopra's view that if we want to change the world, we have to begin by changing ourselves.' The Dalai Lama

Sobre el autor (2005)

Deepak Chopra was born in New Delhi, India in 1946. He was educated as a medical doctor, specializing in endocrinology, at All India Institute of Medical Sciences. He served as Chief of Staff at Boston Regional Medical Center, and has taught at Tufts and Boston University Medical Schools. He recognized limitations in the ways that his medical education approached treatment of individuals. Introduced to the ancient methods of Hindu healing, known as Ayurveda, by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, he saw a way to add a spiritual dimension to treatment of illness. Chopra's thinking led him to develop a theory that he called Quantum Healing, which combines Western and Hindu medical practice. In 1984, Chopra brought Ayurvedic medicine to the United States, and within a year he established the Ayurvedic Health Centre of Stress Management and Behavioral Medicine in Lancaster, Massachusetts. He is also the founding President of the American Association of Ayurvedic Medicine and eventually founded the Chopra Center for Wellbeing. He has written more than 55 books including Ageless Body, Timeless Mind: The Quantum Alternative to Growing Old; Creating Health: How to Wake Up the Body's Intelligence; Creating Affluence: The A-to-Z Steps to a Richer Life; The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success: A Practical Guide to the Fulfillment of Your Dreams; The Shadow Effect and Muhammad: A Story of the Last Prophet; Spiritual Solutions: Answers to Life's Greatest Challenges; Super Brain: Unleashing the Explosive Power of Your Mind to Maximize Health, Happiness, and Spiritual Well-Being; and The Healing Self: A Revolutionary New Plan to Super Charge Your Immunity and Stay Well for Life. He has won numerous awards including a Quill Award for Peace Is the Way and the grand prize at the 2005 Nautilus Book Awards for The Book of Secrets. He also writes novels including The Return of Merlin; Soulmate; and Jesus: A Story of Enlightenment.
