The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success was a phenomenally successful book--more than 1,600,000 copies were sold--and as copies were passed between friends and loved ones, it touched millions more lives. Its author, Deepak Chopra, received thousands of letters from readers, many of whom expressed the desire to convey those same principles to their children, along with questions about how to do so.

This book, The Seven Spiritual Laws for Parents, is Dr. Chopra's answer to those letters and to parents around the world who wish to raise children with values that satisfy spiritual needs as well as create the experience of abundance. After a general discussion of parenting and the gift of spirit, this book explores specific ways to practice the Seven Spiritual Laws as a family, how to convey these laws to children depending on their ages, and how to embody them in age-specific activities each day, beginning on Sundays with the Law of Pure Potentiality.

The Seven Spiritual Laws for Parents moves us beyond private triumphs and failures to experience the spiritual nature of communion with family, to share with those closest to us the infinite riches of innocence and love.

Quotes & Awards

  • Realizing that the interest in the rearing of children in America is intense and that in many cases the end products are unsatisfactory—to parents, to teachers, to employers, to thinkers—Chopra sets his mind to analyzing the spiritual aspects of child rearing—or lack of them. His conclusions are fascinating. Benjamin Spock, M.D.

Listener Opinions

    " Ooops! Can I start over with this parenting thing?? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Taralyn | 2/13/2014

    " This book was fantastic! Like many parenting books, there are some methods that he suggests that I won't use because they don't mesh with my own belief system, but on the whole, I feel like I got so many valuable tools to help with my own parenting! His philosophy and way of writing is fabulous, and I love how he actually separates the laws into daily actions to apply everyday of the week with specific ideas for family activities. I would most definitely recommend it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/9/2014

    " Very insightful. I look forward to reading the adult version on which Chopra based this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Krista Kinder | 2/6/2014

    " I am always reading this book, again and again, a beautiful reminder of what really matters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dylan | 2/3/2014

    " This incredibly short and easy book has a lot to offer. A highly effective distillation of spiritual wisdom, one which gently provokes the parent to think about nourishing a child's spirituality. For those of us who tend to assume that the child will do this on her own, if she wants to, and/or that the child will get to higher meanings as an adult, this book is a peaceful rejoinder. I listened to the author himself on the audiobook, and very much enjoyed his tenor and offerings. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 2/1/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 1/30/2014

    " I like just about anything written by Deepak Chopra. I like his idea of spirit. This book is a gentle reminder of the idea that we are important guides for our children, but that "guiding" rather than "demanding" are the key tasks as parents. I will listen to this one again. And again. "
