Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra: Book Review

Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra is A practical guide without any practicals!!! “A practical guide to the fulfillment of your dreams” – this is what the cover page of Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra says. But as far as my learning goes, the people who know how to convert their dreams are not meant for such books (actually it is vice versa!). The book has been written more with the purpose of marketing and selling than delivering best valued and long-lasting stuff.

Is it possible to get success just in Rs 125/-? Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra is a good read. Fill it shut it forget it. Don’t worry if Rs. 150/- goes waste and dreams do not convert to reality. Otherwise, you may need another book to get rid of worries!!!

Writer is smart enough to understand what will sell well!!! Deepak Chopra writes well. Concept or Style has taken from literature liked by Western Community and Contents from our Vedas (and other ancient Hindu Holy Books). A mix juice produced has put its impact on many people. New York Times recommends it to people who have missed “The Prophet” by Kahlil Gibran. This would have been there in that news paper’s jokes section. Some other similar books authors have an agreement to recommend each other’s books and under this agreement, there are recommendations on the back of a cover page from Anthony Robbins author of “Awaken the Giant within and unlimited power”, Ken Blanchard, co-author of “the one minute manager”. This is a business or professional deal applicable in all countries.

It is not that BAD either!!! Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra is a good read but for once only. In fact, I was too impressed when I opened the bottle and smelled it. I got an impression that the Desi bottle is having imported Wine and buying has been a good bargain. The first peg was larger than Patiala one. It gave a high kick-start and made me ensure myself that I am going to achieve something big by the time I finish this book.

Chapter one of Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra talks about SILENCE, MEDITATION and TALKING TO NATURE and BEING NON-JUDGEMENTAL – Be Silent for some time during the day (according to me when you think you are silent just check inside your body, brain, and heart – there should be complete silence at that time, all silences fully synchronized), move towards meditation from silence. Frequently observe the power of nature by visiting a river, lake, sea, mountain or any other power (to me even a trees, birds, flowers are powerful signs of Nature). Most of the time, we are judgmental about people, incidents etc. which is wrong. Try being non-judgmental while listening, watching, reading, talking and learning (which is actually very difficult). I really loved Chapter one.

But subsequent chapters were more of a polished preaching rather than something coming out of the heart or maybe I was too involved in routine happenings and was not able to catch it or dwell on them appropriately.

Chapter 2 of Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra talks about Law of Giving – you give wrong and get wrong in return. And you give right you get right in return. You get what to give. If you want money – give money (hahaha this is against all other teachings of life that state – always save money). you want good wishes then always wish good for all.

Chapter 3 is Law of Karma. It talks about Cause and Effect. What we sow is what we reap. Boya ped babool ka to…

Chapter 4 talks about Law of Least efforts. This also goes against the regular teachings in life. These teachings say more efforts and hard work is important earning more in life. But Chopra says the reverse. He says most of the things in Life and Nature happen themselves without any or least efforts. Like flowing of a river, growing of tree, the chirping of birds.

Chapter 5 is Law of Intention and Desire – more spiritual rather than practical. It guides in the following manner. Firstly, you must have sincere and positive intentions. Secondly, it should be with a no-harm-to-anyone attitude. Then you have highest chances of success. Finally, it guides to meditate and silently pray for your intentions.

Chapter 6 – Law of Detachment – don’t attach yourself to anything or anyone. Don’t govern, let the things move or happen on their own.

Chapter 7 – Law of Dharma or do and act. it talks about awakening your inner conscious or the Kundalini.

Some best things about Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra and the Law Maker – Firstly, Just 111 pages. Secondly, Seven chapters. Thirdly, seven Laws of life. In addition, there is a summary at the end of each Chapter. In fact, the author has chosen Laws very intelligently for two main purposes. Firstly, to increase the curiosity. And secondly, provoking (especially western readers) for reading/buying this book.
– Deepak Chopra is an Executive Director of one of the Institutes in the US (or the UK). And people living in the Western Countries like his lectures.
