business leaders and entrepreneurs Biography - Information

Deepak Chopra is an Indian doctor and writer who has written several influential books on spirituality and mind-body medicine. His prolific teachings in spirituality, religion, and consciousness have influenced the New Thought Movement as well as millions of people around the world.

Deepak Chopra was born in New Delhi, India on October 22, 1946. His father, Krishna Chopra, a cardiologist, may have played a part in Chopra's decision to attend the All India Institute of Medical Sciences after which he emigrated to the U.S. with his new wife, Rita. Upon their arrival in 1970, Chopra began his medical internship in New Jersey followed by a term of residency at the Lahey Clinic in Burlington, Massachusetts and another at the University of Virginia Hospital. When he completed his residency, Chopra passed his board exams as a doctor of internal medicine and endocrinology.

For the next few years Chopra taught at Boston University and Tufts University, later becoming Chief of Staff at the New England Memorial Hospital in Massachusetts. He became Chief at Boston Regional Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts before establishing a private practice. In 1981 Chopra met Dr. Vaidya Brihaspati Dev Triguna, a practitioner of Ayurvedic medicine, an ancient type of mind-body medicine that originated in India and influences holistic medicine around the world. After becoming inspired by the meeting, Chopra became actively involved in the Transcendental Meditation movement, eventually becoming an influential leader.

In 1993 Deepak Chopra became the Executive Director of the Sharp Institute for Human Potential and Mind-Body Medicine in San Diego, California. His goal was to find broader aims in mind-body treatment and he continued his quest with The Chopra Center in 1996. The Center, located in La Jolla, was eventually moved to Carlsbad, California in 2002 and continued with a branch in New York.

Chopra's goal was to combine the best of western medicine with the traditions of natural medicine. He believed that good health was not jus the absence of disease, but a function of balance within the body and mind. The American Medical Association has recognized the Chopra Center and certified it for continuing education for physicians.

Deepak Chopra is also a well-known author with over 40 published works. He first became internationally recognized after his first book, Creating Health, was published in 1986. The book explained the interconnection between the mind and body and the importance of meditation to both prevent and help treat medical conditions. Later books focused on both medicine as well as connections between religion and science. Some scientists criticize Chopra's use of science and quantum physics to explain healing processes in mind-body medicine.

Chopra contributes to internet blogs (including the popular "The Huffington Post" blog) and posts and helps to spread ideas of mind-body medicine and peace through his work. His daughter, Mallika Chopra runs a blog to which Deepak regularly contributes. The blog is designed to bring awareness to voices from South Asia. His son, Gotham Chopra, alongside Richard Branson and Deepak, runs Virgin Comics LLC, a company created to help spread peace and awareness through comics and trading cards that display traditional Kabalistic characters and stories.

Deepak Chopra Quotes Deepak Chopra Quotes

The current perception I get from the evening news is that the world is dominated by human failure, crime, catastrophe, corruption, and tragedy. We are all tuning in to see how the human mind is evolving, but the media keeps hammering home the opposite, that the human mind is mired in darkness and folly.
Deepak Chopra - Media
- Failure - Negative

To have passion, to have a dream, to have a purpose in life. And there are three components to that purpose, one is to find out who you really are, to discover God, the second is to serve other human beings, because we are here to do that and the third is to express your unique talents and when you are expressing your unique talents you lose track of time.
