You don't have to believe in God in order to experience God.
--- Deepak Chopra

The celebrated author of Ageless Body, Timeless Mind and The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success has written his most ambitious and important work yet, a runaway international bestseller that has inspired hundreds of thousands of readers to rethink their concept of God.

According to Chopra, the brain is hardwired to know God. The human nervous system has seven biological responses that correspond to seven levels of divine experience. These are shaped not by any one religion (they are shared by all faiths), but by the brain's need to take an infinite, chaotic universe and find meaning in it. How to Know God describes the quest each of us is on, whether we realize it or not. For, as Chopra puts it, "God is our highest instinct to know ourselves." This book makes a dramatic and enduring contribution to that knowledge.

    " Excellent, as usual fare from Chopra. Gave me a new slant on why God was seen differently through the ages. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katherine | 3/28/2011

    " Deepak Chopra books are always good. This is one for the bookshelf that you will turn to many times for inspiration and guidance. "

    " This is an intense look into the realm of spirituality. It isn't what you might think. It is worth picking up and getting started! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi | 1/2/2011

    " This was a mind altering book for me. I found it a very depressing read as it shattered a lot of firmly held beliefs (mind you, I read this roughly ten years ago now). However, it was completely worth it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 12/31/2010

    " An amazing and very different look at God and the evolution of our relationship with him (or her!) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maryjoamani | 10/12/2010

    " I wasn't thrilled with the first chapter or two but then it all fell into place. Chopra develops a theory on the stages of spiritual development and understanding of God that is helpful if simplistic. For those who enjoy reading about spiritual enlightment, it's a solid beginner's book. "
