From the January 2010 E-Block.
Deepak Chopra's Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul
(RIRS) provides an unusual opportunity to consider Chopra apart from
attempts to bend Biblical texts to his purposes (though he does do that
now and then even here). This is not so much a religious book as it is a
book about how to stay healthy -- mentally and physically -- the Chopra
Naturally, it advises the reader to follow a number of practices from
Eastern religion like meditation, and a belief in pantheism, such that
everything, even rocks, has a conscious awareness. No surprise there,
though still no answer to why, if this system is so wonderful, it
produces such poor social results in India.
So in this review, all we'll do is make three thematic observations.
The first observation is that Chopra is given over frequently to
making exceptional claims that he supports with no documentation, other
than perhaps personal anecdote. When for example are told of a
miraculous healing  or the results of biofeedback , we would
like something to support this besides personal anecdote by Chopra as a
questionable witness. In modern times, we would demand the same of Benny
Hinn; for Jesus, we would need the corroboration that comes from the
evidence for the Resurrection.
Second, Chopra here habitually reckons mundane results to have
mystical significance. It is unnecessary to appeal to "energies" to
explain things like why our attitude changes when we head towards
something we perceive as positive [36, for example]. Chopra's
"energies," like Tolle's "pain-body," a contrivance of metaphysical
Third -- Chopra's refusal to provide documentation is no
surprise, for his philosophy regards epistemology as a waste of time.
After telling one incredible story, he avers that "belief and skepticism
are both beside the point" . The "inner support that comes from
your own awareness" is what you really need to rely on. Later he says
that "[e]very experience this day brought was subjective" which means
"this day occurred in awareness, nowhere else, and you are awareness."
 With that kind of epistemology, why would you need to prove
anything you say?
There's not much more than that to RIRS: "Plenty of basic, sound,
common sense advice on living, with a superfluous layer of Eastern
mysticism" pretty well sums up the content. I frankly do not understand
Chopra's allure to readers, but I suspect that if I adopted his
epistemology myself, I might come a little closer to getting it.
